* Fishing, Fireworks, and some Family Time

Posted on July 3rd, 2013 by . Filed under Uncategorized .


Elliott Green had the Midas touch on this last rotation. For some reason his rod nearly always had a fish of some sort on the end of it and on the last day, well, this awesome 32 pound Chinook decided to turn his cut plug herring into breakfast. Way to go Elliott and we’re looking forward to seeing you again next year!

Aaron DeWeese and her husband Kim enjoyed three days of phenomenal fishing, as well. Here’s Aaron with a nice 24 pound king salmon that she caught at Pineapple Rock on the last day of their trip.

Here’s Elliott again with a 42 inch long ling cod. We had two ling cod and an 80 pound halibut on at the same time that made one helluva mess out of the lines. Luckily I untangle lines for a living and was able to sort out the mess fairly quickly and we landed all three fish. The nice halibut was released, of course, as it was in between the 45/68 slot limit. Still a lot of fun though!

I enjoyed a few hours of fishing with the family after dinner last night near town. Funny thing…we mostly just set the rods in the holders hoping to NOT catch fish and low and behold…we did!

52 and 70 feet seemed to be the best depth because we caught a king and 8 nice cohos setting the cut plugs at those depths. Little Ava really enjoyed herself and got her sea legs under her right quick. I’m a lucky guy!

Enjoying a couple of days off to spend some time with the family and catch up on chores before our next gang of fisherman shows up here on the 4th of July. We’re hoping the weather cooperates tonight so we can take the boat out for the great fireworks display that Craig puts on every year. Have a great 4th of July everyone and thanks for stopping by!
