hey,
Well I went over to Tillamook Bay for the same surf perch that I pounded the weekend before nd they were long gone. I had a couple of good strikes early and missed on all of them but the grass is very thick so after about 30 minutes I moved onto crabbing. The crabbing in the bay was great we got 25 in about 3 hours and all of them were hard. The fishing in the bay is slow at best. I did see some rock fish caught in the jetty and marked some fish that I believed to be salmon on our fiish finder. I did not see any fish landed but heard of 1 fish that was taken in the jaws on cut plug. When cleaning our crab at the old mill I saw a guide who's name I forgot and he said that he fished hard for 2 fish which were in the 15 pound range. He heard of a guide who went to the back of the bay and actually tried pulling spinners and did not get a single takedown so that is still yet to come.
well good luck and pray for rain.

TTT.

So did no one fish the Tillamook area this past weekend ?????

Sometime this means the fishing may be good and no one is saying anything or there is no pressure at all which I find hard to believe.

I hope to go down there next weekend and would appreciate any info throughout this week.

Thanks Much.

steelhead22,

Are you suggesting that one not fish the entire bay or just a specific part of the bay that you would not fish.

If I were to fish I would be in a 18.5' gregor with 60 merc and 8 yami.


Maybe the crabbing will be better.

SH22,

I figured as much. By the looks of the carrot report I figured it wouldn't take a Kentuckian
to figure out that there may be some fish around down there.

I probably will be down there if not in the Hog Hunter, by other means.

Thanks all, and if there are any other reports throughout the week let us all know.

El-Kabong- I'm just messing around. There's should be some really good fishing over there, at least I hope so as I'll probably be fishing it. Out by the Jetty is probably your best bet, but please know what your in for before you head that way. Head into Marie's shop in Tillamook, she'll give you more info than you'll know what to do with. She can tell you where, when, how, and with what to fish and crab with, and she probably has some maps of the bay also, or knows where you can get them. If your going to salmon fish, make sure you get some of her sticky shrimp scent :wink: :grin: .

I fished the lower Trask this last weekend and didn't spot any cohos or fall kings. The river is full of springers spawning all over the place though. It was interesting to see two 30 pounders spawning. The coho jacks should be coming in soon. It won't be long!!!

I talked to Val at Garibaldi Marina this afternoon and she said it was very good today. She said "many boats were in by noon with their fish" ...you can interpret what that means. I've always thought her and Jeff give pretty honest reports.

Hope to go down there Wednesday....Will have an open seat. Anyone interested, please e-mail me by tomorrow.

Bullhead Out!

Do not fish Tillamook Bay. There are no fish there :wink: . Whatever you do, don't fish it this weekend after it rains all week, there will be no new fish moving in,it will be terrible :rolleyes: . I repeat, there are no fish in Tillamook Bay. Or...I'll see ya there, I think I'm headed over to stay at our house in Netarts thats exactly 7 minutes from the Memaloose Boat Ramp. If ya' see a little 16' Smokercraft Alaskan with a dude in a black hooded sweatshirt, that's me, say hello.

Any tips would be appreciated.

We fished the ocean out of Garibaldi Sat, Sun and part of Monday. Found a good bite Saturday morning landing three nice chinook up to 25#. Couldn't keep the coho off our lines, must have hooked ten, but happy to say all were released in good health.

Sunday we found a decent bite in the morning, landing two nice chinook, the largest being 33#. :grin: Strange, but it slowed considerably after 10:00 or so, might have been the change in the weather as a slight squall blew through and was a windy afternoon. The fish and game guy said not nearly as many fished checked Sunday vs Saturday.

Monday looked to be the perfect day with no wind, however the coasties closed the bar for much of the morning. The bar was a bit snotty, I think as a result of last nights rain pushing in.

Bullhead, I'm not sure if Val was talking about yesterday morning, but I don't think anyone caught much in the bay until at least after the tide change after 10:00. No one got out of the bay until after that, and looks like they were pulled back in a short time later.

The fish are definately around, can't wait for Saturday.
