And since crabbing has been slow we shot down to 3 Arches to burs a few hours & lucked into a bounty

Gotta love going Coastal !!!

Three of us fished salmon out of Memaloose yesterday. Not even a breath of wind before noon nor did anyone catch or see a fish. We commented that the ocean must have been flat enough for my new l8' sled and that we should have gone to Oceanside area for lings. It looks like you made a good choice!

Any luck on crabs? And if so, did you drop pots North or South?

Thanks for the great report!

Congrats, thats a nice halibut!! I had a buddy out with Kerri Lin Charters yesterday and they fished in the same general area and he also lucked into a halibut about that size. Made for a nice bonus

I was lucky enough 27 years ago to become a guide ;0)

We crabbed south and had 5 crabs in the first 4 pots then someone stuffed my last pot with 31 keepers, NO joke. Now that was lucky !!!

John,............ Sorry Buddy but perhaps the butt was luck, but with you it is mostly preperation and skill.

John, I haven't gone to three arches in the past 20 years but we used to target Lings by just leaving our salmon herring rigs (with solid tie hooks) intact and "walk" our baits among the boulders until a hungry Ling took it We even picked up a 20#+ feeder chinook doing that. How are you fishing that area now? The black Rockfish seem to avoid this technique in favor of taking those jigs so we just let the charters outside of us catch the rockfish while we got our limit of the real meats. The only thing I didn't like about that fishery was the trip back to Tillamook Bay against the nasty wind chop.
