We launched at Everett at 6:30AM and headed to Shipwreck.

Hmmm, no boats in 8-2. Quick check and sure felt like an idiot—8.2 closed yesterday.

No worries, 9 is fine! Pretty tough day. First Coho had all its fins. Second was a keeper. Third fish was a small Blackmouth and then another finned Coho.
1 out of 4 was a keeper—not a great average.

Only 1 or 2 dozen boats on the North end of 9 in the area we were fishing. We saw a fish or two lost, but didn’t witness any landed.

Thanks for the report. Area 10 was pretty slow today right outside of Shillshole. We only caught 2 shakers in 4 hours and had one drive by. I only saw about 4 nets in the water during that time with over 30 boats and six of them guide boats. We fished from 6:30-10:30 and threw everything at them at all depths. Will be out again on Thursday.

Just some food for thought, but I've been having alot more success when not fishing with the crowd. I've found that a high concentration of boats scatters the fish and drives them deeper. We pushed away from the boats in MA10 outside of Shilshole, found some tides rips and had back to back doubles.

Thanks, Cozmo. Yep, I’ll stay on the outside unless not marking fish. Wasn’t too hard to do with so few boats working. We found most targets in about 130’ of water, but that was also where the schools of “shakers “ were. After dragging around a couple of those for 15 minutes we went back out deeper.

WDfw creel reports at the Everett ramp showed 17 boats on the 24th with 7 fish. I guess I can’t complain!

Things seem to be slowing down. I do agree with Commi, stay away from crowd. I’ve been fishing Elliott Bay MA10 line about .5 miles south of green market and doing very good solo.
