Thursday the weather turned to cloudy, drizzle with winds 8 MPH+ form the Southeast which whipped up the Puget Sound waters. It made for interesting trolling but the Chinook and local area Coho are there so suck it up!
Put in at Kingston and out in the morning twilight, water was rough but fishable, not many boats compared to Tuesday which opened up my fishing lanes somewhat. I decided on the Tomic 6" 140 plug, all white with a pink nose to start, 2 good takedowns, one 22" Coho in the boat but lost a Chinook. Switched over to the 3.5" OG236R Hoochie/Flasher recommended by John Martinez and managed to put a perfect BBQ sized, 24" clipped Chinook in the boat and I was done!!
Most times out of Kingston I work the Appletree Cove area keeping the gear at 90-130 FT in deeper waters but have hooked up in shallow area as well. The 6' Tomic plugs have gotten the majority of takedowns this year. Suggestions from friends is go to 130-200 FT if the fish are there as well as the bait!
On Monday I hooked another Coho on the Gibbs Skinny G spoon No Bananas as well.
