Decided to hit Washington for some possible coho after reading a few reports. I ended up being the guide for the day taking my dad and my uncle out in my boat. My uncle hadn't caught a fish in two years because of work and health issues. We started at 0700 hrs on the northend near Juanita trolling at 40-60 ft with chrome dodgers and spinners tipped with shrimp. I got the guys set up on the downriggers and just manned the kicker and BAAMM!! Rod was bouncing like crazy. My Uncles rod of course, and he has his back to the rod enjoying his cigarette taking in the cool morning air. Long story short he ended up successfully bringing in an 18" coho jack. The look on his face was priceless, he was pumped! That little coho could have been fifteen pounds and it would have gotten the same reaction.
Action slowed down and after an hour wait my dad picked up a 13" cut which was bleeding so it made it in the cooler. Hopefully it picks up! Tight Lines!!!
