Headed out Thursday evening for a few hours and Friday morning until 11am. Set lines straight out of the marina in 40 fow. Ran 12 rods. Flat lines with j-11’s, 3 colors, 6 colors, and 8 colors all with spoons, 2 dipseys with spin doctor fly combos, and 2 rigger with spoons. Seems like magnum mixed veggie and orange crush did most of the damage. Trolled out to 75’ and back a half a dozen times. Went 9 for 13. Really nice cohos. Pretty sure we lost a king on a dipsey. Either that or a 10lb coho. Never saw it. Surface water was 66 degrees… that’s a 10 degree difference in less than a week. Damn biting flies and gnats though. Sheesh…it’s enough to drive you insane.
