The weather this morning doesn’t look great outside, but that didn’t stop some from venturing out into open saltwater salmon fishing areas.
A fishing source reported that he was fishing this morning off Hat Island in water rougher than he’d like to see, but had hooked one nice hatchery-marked chinook off the “racetrack area” tha taped out at 28 inches and weighed about 8 pounds.
They also released two shakers (chinook under the 22-inch minimum size limit).
On Thursday he also managed to get out – and it may seem like eons ago, but was that one nice spring-like day this past – under calm water and sunny skies, and hooked a 27-inch hatchery-marked chinook off the outer end of Possession Bar.
He moved into Saratoga Pass where his boat released three shakers at Columbia Beach and two more shakers at another nearby area.
