Today was another picture perfect day on Puget Sound. We headed out a few days before the Chinook kill season to scout out a few of our favorite salmon mooching areas and experienced some great fishing!
Our crew were all new moochers, but picked up the technique quickly and found a few really nice salmon to play with. We fished a number of spots around Kingston and Jeff Head. Bait was hard to come by but we found it once the tide started to turn, and most of our catches were in the upper 60′ of the water column, even when we were drifting in areas over 200′ deep. Although we were hoping for a few Coho to take home, several healthy Chinook were our only customers for the day, but put up a great fight and made some lasting memories!
Chinook retention will open in a few days and there are plenty around so get out there!
