I got a pm from Aaron the fish checker that the fish had moved north. glad I did not listen to him:wink:. Water was much colder, 10 degrees less than last week. Dropped the soaker pot and headed out
We moved out to deeper water and deployed the gear in about 200'
Found biters at the same depth as last week. Fishing was very consistant, just not nuts.
MANY wild fish, about 4:1. We scratched out the fish we needed. Boy they are getting plump. The coyote spoon did well too, but with a barbless siwash, we lost the first 2 before this toad made it to the net. I may try an octopuss hook for better results. Note the flat sea behind me. Fish the forecast and you'll never fish! That's no 2 and 4!
Came back in and picked up some really nice crabs and called it a great day. Thanks dad for spending a day with your kid. You rocked out there!
For those who go tomorrow. Try a little north, like out in front of nehalem jetty to TR. 200-250' 15'-20' down. We did well with red dodgers, green diver, and a pearl hootchie. troll at 2.5-3 knots, vary speed, make some turns, find the rips out there. Many fish came zigzaging through them.
