Area 10 Seattle - Bremerton Fishing Report



This was a tough coho season, at least for me. I had some success but also some tough days, not at all like the easy limits of last year.

Last trip out with my friend and NWFR camera guy Robbie. We launched out of Edmonds and fished the morning from the marina to the oil docks, trying close in, far out, shallow, deep. All for naught, save a feisty 20" blackmouth Robbie caught at 120 feet on the cable.

Even with the coho skunk it was still fun getting out and Robbie was in need of a morning on the water to take his mind off of personal tragedy. His house burned down a week early and he lost his dog, Manny. So he needed some fishing time and enjoyed being out. Say a pray for him and his family if you're so inclined, it's pretty devastating as you can imagine.

So sorry to learn of Robbie’s loss and glad you were able to give him a diversion from a tough situation. Hang in there Robbie.

@mikecarey just wanted to drop a comment here comparing this season to last on my boat. Last season we fished the same spots as always, oil docks, Richmond beach, Boeing creek, shilshole, West Point, etc... we had a really bad year. Limited one day and then it was one fish a trip for a couple trips and then 4-5 trip with 0. Super frustrating year last year because 20 trips yielded about 7 fish. This year was quite the opposite. At one point we had 4 trips in a row with 22 fish kept. Also has 4-5 double headers with keepers. We fished the same spots as last year and the same spots as everyone else this year and we NAILED them!!!! Don’t really have a conclusion but I think people underestimate how much the Puget Sound fisherie changes year to year. Yes they are in similar areas, but for example we didn’t get a single fish on a hoochy this year??? All spoons!!! Anyway just wanted to comment on that... right lines and prayers for your buddy and his family

fascinating. We got all but a couple on hoochies. It wasn't a bad year for us, just a "fair" year. Glad you had more success!
