Keith Robbins, owner of A Spot Tail Salmon Guide in Shilshole Bay has been working hard during this selective hatchery-marked king fishery, and some days fishing has been good while other have been downright slow.
“Point No Point was slow (Thursday, July 28), although I had some Mariner players out,” Robbins said.
Robbins says Mariners first baseman Justin Smoak, shortstop Brendan Ryan, relief pitcher Jeff Gray and trainer Takayoshi Morimoto joined him during their off-day to search out some salmon at Point No Point.
“We lost three kings, and a coho to the boat, but it was slow,” Robbins said. “This morning (Friday, July 29) was much better at No Point and we got two hatchery kings (in the high teens).”
Kingston has “sucked” all week Robbins said.
King and coho fishing has also been off and on at places like Jefferson Head, Richmond Beach, Yeomalt Point, Point Monroe, Pilot Point, Double Bluff, east side of Marrowstone Island and Midchannel Bank off Port Townsend. The action at Possession Bar has been unseasonably slow this summer.
