Not a great start to chinook for me! Fished west bar from 7-12, between 150 to 90 feet of water. Down rigger ranged from 80 to 45. Caught an absurd amount of shakers despite the faster trolling speed. Around 8:30 at 60 on the down rigger I had a nice 4-5lb resident coho take my spoon, but it was unclipped. That's all the action we had. Is fishing suspended not the best idea for Kings, or was west side of the bar the mistake this morning?

I like west side of the bar. Had the most action there. Sadly I havent been out due to family health and high gas prices.
I do troll that side more on the outgoing tide the last few hours for best results.

West side is fished best on the flood (incoming) tide. Start in 130fow just south of the green can...troll south (keeping depth at 130ft) keeping a 35 degree angle on your dowrigger wire (assuming 12lb balls). Put dr balls at 130-140ft. You are now in the "king" zone. Tin shed & SE on ebb tide (like it was last several days in the morning). Hope this helps.
