Quest for Five Fishing Trips in 10 Days ramps up tomorrow

I’m going for my fourth and fifth trips in my quest for Five Fishing Trips in 10 Days starting at 3 a.m. Thursday and ending on Friday afternoon.

I’ll be loading the crab pots with bait to set them somewhere in Puget Sound as I head north to Point No Point for chance at catching a hatchery king salmon.

I heard that the fishing has picked up in recent days and this bodes well for what is expected to be a widely popular fishery in central and northern Puget Sound [Areas 9 and 10] for hatchery-marked chinook.

Unlike the past couple of years when this fishery had a catch quota, this summer there will be a catch guideline, and fishing should hold strong right through August as a wall of kings has been massing between Sekiu and the San Juan Islands. Some of those should definitely be heading into Puget Sound.

I’ll fill folks in on how I do over the next couple of days after I get in during the later afternoon.

Fish on!
