Pretty heavy fog all day. Launched at Everett at 7:15 and, after a slow trip to Mukilteo due to fog, had gear down at about 7:45. Fished the outgoing tide down past Shipwreck, then spent several hours around Shipwreck and Picnic Pt. before fishing the incoming tide back to Mukilteo and playing tag with the Ferries in the fog on our way back.

Used several different flasher/hoochie combos with herring strips from 35-125'. We had two solid takedowns at 95' and 120' of wire. One fish in the boat was a 6.5 pound female that appeared very long and slender (29"). The other fish was lost to a split ring that failed...my fault. I thought I had replaced them all with welded rings last year :-/. I haven't caught a lot of coho this year, but everyone had empty stomachs and appeared to be in "river mode" with nearly mature eggs in the females.

Unless there are more fish on the way, I think the Fat Lady is warming up...

I was there also. My bud and I got 3 in my boat same area. We lost one fish to a Sea Lion about a mile north of the Wreck, the second time this year we've had a furbag steal one vs 3 times last year. Two on a white glo squid with strip and inserts and two including the furbag fish on a Coho Killer. The fog was bad, we ran across in the morning the same time you did. The fog lifted for a little while around noon and then closed in again. We fished until 2 which was longer than we wanted to, hoping the fog would lift which it never did. Glad I have 2 GPS receivers but no radar. We would have went out today but I had my fill of fog yesterday. We got one male that weighed 9.2 pounds on my digital scale.

We got our fish more shallow, 60-70 feet. I'd like to go out tomorrow but not sure with the fog problem.
