Well we decided not to head north today to Midchannel Bank off Port Townsend and it looks like that was a good bet as I heard it was slow up there.
We left Shilshole Bay and arrived at Jefferson Head by 6 a.m.
We got our first native king, 14 pounder, at 6:15 a.m. in 100 feet of water, and then went right over the pod of fish again and hooked and released another 20 pound wild king.
Then the bite cooled off and we got some hits and released a coho and two small chinook. We worked our way toward the outer part of the head, and didn’t get much action.
On the flood tide we headed to the southeast corner and ended up getting a 10 pound hatchery king. Then the bite died and we got headed back by 1 p.m. It sounds like there are still just a few kings caught here and there.
Other places that gave up a few fish were Elliott Bay, Tacoma area, Dolphin Point, Possession Bar, Point No Point, Foulweather Bluff, Edmonds area and Marrowstone Island.
