We set out from Mukilteo for Possession Point at 4:30am along with 250+ other boats. It was like driving during rush hour on I-5 with no north/south divider and no over passes. Everybody motoring ...

I've been out several times in the past few days and it's weird - squid this season is just slow. Monday night was pretty good, and Wednesday night was okay for a little while, but overall it's been ...

Well, this is actually a 1.5 star as I didn't catch a few, but one. I was going for both/either squid/herring and couldn't get either of them to hit the lures. Don't know what was going on - big sc...

And just like that, coho season was over! We worked hard today and got skunked for the first time since we got the new boat on the 1st of September! We had 2 hook-ups, both very deep (below 80 fee...

We were hopeful as we hit the tides and sunrise at just about the right time, but the odds were working against us from the very beginning. As we were setting up, Tim moved the downrigger and the who...

It was a little tougher today than the past few times out - we actually didn't limit for a change! We put in at the usual time (before the rest of you get there) and motored out to our spot and dropp...

We brought a buddy along and between the 3 of us we got 4 fish. They all kind of came at once around 8:30, but we trudged on until noon without any further success. Gloom of the day was hooking a sea...

First time at the Redondo boat launch - it was interesting to say the least - a very narrow ramp for 2 boats. Fortunately it wasn't packed this morning, but still tricky for our first time there. We...

Every Dog has his day, but sadly it wasn't my day! :( It was uber-packed combat fishing and about 15-20 pulled out throughout the morning. I had one hit, but didn't set the hook in time.

We got there early - motored down to the riffle and saw the schools coming up. We went back upstream just south of the Hwy 9 bridge and got our limit in just over an hour.
