Thanks for your report yesterday MJB, went out of Florence today with my son and Landed 5/13On the water report. 4 in the box, released 6-8.
140-150 ft. Just north of jetty
Talked to a fish checker this afternoon at the SB Marina. Hadn't seen a salmon all day. Parking lot was pretty much empty. Port was socked in. Be prepared for fog, hot in the valley... Good luck...Wife and I are heading out of Newport and hoping for coho tomorrow. Will make a report . . .
Would be nice to hear of any caught today . . .
Wife and I started fishing about 9:45. Just like Heavyduty stated we hade a lot of hits and misses. Only got one native to the boat to be released. The wind started picking up so we left about 2:30. Diver, Pink hoochie with a hunk of herring. Frustrating day.There was a charter that ran a trip yesterday without a single takedown so we had no real hope of a fishy day. We left the dock at 6:30 , out to the whistler and trolled southwest. Moderate heavy fog that broke up pretty quickly and was completely gone by 8:00. No wind and a gentle 5’ swell. Into fish pretty quickly and stayed interested all day. Buddy had an afternoon date so we were off the water by 11:30. 9 solid hookups and half as many “swing and a miss”. Three to the boat for one keeper.
After action analyses shows most fish lost due to their smaller size not tripping the divers. We didn’t try too many colors as we were getting bit.
One other boat dropped in near us and they kept south. Their numbers pretty much matched ours, three rods , twenty fish lost , four to the boat and two kept. We got out to 170’ , they stayed under 160.
They’re out front right now boys.
Heading back out in the morning with a full crew.
