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.
