Fished the 22nd and 23rd. were going to fish the 24th but not worth the slow action.
8/22- started late because of tides. i was at 55 feet, my dad at 35, and mom out the back with a diver. after a half hour or 45 minutes i got a really good downrigger release hit and it somehow someway didn't stick. that was all the action all day from coho. then after trolling went to pillar point in the kelp and jigged with macks lure sonic baitfish and picked up a limit of sea bass but no coho. there was bait all over but no salmon following.
8/23- started out casting today by pillar again and kept 1 HUGE sea bass. then kept drifting and found a big opening into the kelp and since the water was so clear we could see greenling going nuts over the sonic baitfish. we had 2 to 6 fish by our lure at once. after that we trolled for awhile with not a single hit. so went back to jigging and casting. and found another really good greenling hole. picked up 8 greenling total and 1 bass. 1 of the greenling was huge too. now we know where our bait source is next ling season.

fished from 8/8 through 8/10.
8/8: slept in today and went out around 9:30 because of tides. got out there to pillar point and never got a nibble. out of the 12 days or so we fished here in july i had never seen it this slow. so we decided to call it and drive to cape flattery. the cape was absolutely gorgeous. i would have loved to drop Lingcod jigs in all those caves and neat spots.
8/9: today we got out at about 10:30 because tides were later. fised around pillar point the whole time and the only thing we picked up was one hatchery coho. SLOW!!!
8/10: my mom and dad fished in our boat and i was fishing with a buddy because he had nobody to fish with. got out early at 4:30 today. from the time we got to pillar until day light we caught fish but most were shakers. out of 8 or 10 fish only 2 were keepers. then it slowed down. we still were catching some though. awhile later we got 1 more chinook and a 6 lbs coho. we gave 1 to my mom and dad because they had none. we tried mooching for just a little bit and caught a dogfish and that was it. since 2 of the 4 fish were coho i came up to 50 feet and went for coho. in 2 hours or so i got 2 more wild coho. then the next fish i caught was a lingcod on a spoon with no bait. not big only about 18 inches but still cool. then we called it. all chinook were caught on green and glow hootchie with a red flasher and all chinook between 95 and 200 feet on the rigger. all coho caught on same rig just at 50 feet.

fished from the 17th to the 20th. 17th... there were three of of us in the boat... my mom, my dad, and I. from the minute we started till the minute we stopped we were having bites. problem was almost all were shakers. I even tried 200 feet down on the rigger and still caught a shaker. i had just caught a shaker and was letting out fast to get back to the action in hopes for a big one and on my way down at 50 feet deep my line came out of the clip. about 3 seconds later a coho salmon soars out of the water with my lure and flasher. i couldnt believe at the speed i was going down a coho hit it. of course it was native but it was still really cool. every once in a while we would get a legal fish but they were far and few. after hours off trolling my dad hooked into another one which at first seemed like a shaker but then started to make good runs. when we got it to the boat and saw it it was big. i netted it after several tries and after 30 something shakers we had caught this 21.7 pounder and it was hatchery.finally a good fish.it was surprisingly dark colored but still tasted great! 18th... SLOW!!! i dont know what changed but today was insanely slow. for the day we boated 1 shaker and hooked only 3. 19th...today was a little better but not a lot.we boated 4 to 6 fish and only 1 was a keeper and just like the others barely legal. 20th...very good fishing! we were in our little 16 foot boat from 6:00 am to 4:00 pm. also today caught 30 something shakers and 5 small keepers. we were out for several hours looking for that last fish but couldnt get it. but... we did get excitement! I was unhooking a shaker from my dads line and when i finished i turned around and my pole was out of the rigger clip and the fish already pulled up the slack and was hammering on my rod. so i picked and the instant i got it the fish took 50 feet of line then i gained about 20 feet and he made another looooooooong run. i could tell he was really big. we even went after him in the boat. after a really hard fight we got it to the boat. thats when i became heartbroken. it was a 25 pound native chinook. It was a beautiful bright and chrome fish. it was even bigger than most of the halibut we caught this year. but it was an amazing fight and story. The whole time we fished from 100 to 130 feet n the riggers and the biggest came at 100. using a green/glow flasher with a pure double glow hootchie.

Went out and fished from 7/3 to 7/13. 7/3 was my dad and I. As soon as we got out there we heard it was really slow fishing. like the worst the people have seen it in years and that was not what we had wanted to hear. 7/3-this was our very first season for Chinook. Because of that and slow fishing we didnt have high hopes. We launched around 4:30 and were fishing at Pillar by 4:45. I was running a red racer flasher with a green glow spatter back (OG142R) hootchie at 65 feet on the rigger and my dad was running a green and glow flasher with a pure double glow hootchie at 94 feet on the rigger. we went hours with only dogfish and rockfish. and finally my dad's rod pops out of the release. it didnt come off but it didnt pull hard so we thought it was a shaker. when we got it to the boat we were wrong it was a 15 pounder so i netted and it amazingly was a hatch. after we got back down it was like the rest of the day... no bites. that was the only fish for today. 7/4 to 7/8 it was my dad my mom and I. these five days were slightly better but not alot. all these days were from 2 to 5 fish caught and 0 to 3 fish kept. at this point over all the days we caught probably 20 fish and not a single salmon came on my rod. so i switched to the exact same rig and depth. 7/9 to 7/12- we had up some cousins for a few days and they didnt know ANYTHING about ANY of it and we had 5 people in our little 16 ft boat which i didnt like at all. but surprisingly we did better. the first of these three days was a 4 fish kept day then a 0 fish kept day but some caught and then the last was another 4 fish kept day. fishing was finally slowly getting better. and since i put on the same thing as my dads i finally caught fish.7/13- BY FAR the best day.today we had 5 people in our boat again. we had 2 rigger poles and 1 with a diver. not long and the diver rod with a cut plug caught a hatchery coho which was the first caught on the trip. then the riggers caught 4 keepers and then 2 a little later which already was our best day but got even better. we trolled from pillar point to the green buoy at sekiu. with all bites coming from pillar to the coal mines we motored to pillar at the tide change and caught fish.we had 3 doubles and a couple more by themselves in about 20 mins. we couldnt keep the fish off. we got the rest of our 10 fish here. 9 out of the 10 were but barely legal and 1 was an 11.3 pounder. all except the coho caught on a green flasher with a pure double glow hootchie with no bait. we caught more without bait than with. about half the fish caught from 90 to 100 feet and the other half at 125 to 150 feet. we varied our speed from 2 to 3.5 mph through water not over ground and all speeds caught fish. going back out the 16th for more action.

I got up in anticipation of the same morning of catching salmon like yesterday. We started again at 7 am. Went out where we were before and nothing happened. I think Glen got a shaker but that was it. We went from surface (which didn’t get any) to 100 feet down. Then Cami started saying “Lets go west.” Glen didn’t want to. She became more insistent and I agreed with her saying we couldn’t do any worse. So we moved and stopped when she said. Lowered the gear and Glen gets one right away. Today I didn’t catch anything I could keep. But Glen did. He used a Cookies and Cream spoon and an Ace Hi Fly.. I used what I did the day before and only got shakers. But that move was key. Even though it wasn’t that far we got into fish.
I had to leave today and I wanted to get some bottom fish. So we went west of Sekiu to bottom fish without success. Then we went back east to Sekiu to clean the 3 salmon and get them on ice because it was sunny and I could check out of Olson’s.
We went back out and headed east of Sekiu and found some bottom fish. It was Glen’s day today. I caught fish with my jig but they were all lingcod and I couldn’t keep them. I caught a Red Irish Lord, too. I never caught one of those before. I am gong to make the same jig but in a smaller size so I can get some greenling next time. Glen caught me some bottom fish to take home and one of these days I am going to catch a ling I can keep.

I fished the 24th and the 25th with Glen and Cami of F24 Experience at Sekiu, WA. We let the early birds leave before daylight and we went down to the boat at 7am. We headed out north to about 600 feet deep and put our gear down. As I write now I can not remember the sequence of when or how they came. But there were a lot of them. My hand hurt and was turning red from holding the rod. At the end of the day both biceps hurt. We entered the Olson’s weekly Derby so we tried to get the big one. I started the morning using a red and green flasher from Gibb’s and a new lure I made Red Green Mojo. Then I switched to a different flasher (not sure what it is) with a F24 Mojo on and that got the biggest one for me! We were catching and releasing and I got one on that F24 Mojo that wrapped itself with it like a lasso. We were getting ready to get it on the boat and snap! it is gone taking the lure with it. I switched and put a new lure Purple Reign Mojo with a Purple Haze flasher and I finished the day with it on. The bite died about 10am and we went in with only 5 fish missing that last one because we were going to get that big one next. We were from surface to 50 down on the cable in 550-684 feet deep.
I did get a 12 pound hook nose which was the biggest Coho I have caught. It was a good day catching!

Took my annual trip to Sekiu to hit up the Coho action. Fishing was HOT, Got our limits daily fairly easy. Was there from Thursday the 19th to Saturday the 21st, so got 3 days of fishing in and returned home Saturday night to get some rest before heading back to work. Had 2 Family members in the boat with me, headed out daily at 6 AM and was back on the docks by 8:30 AM daily with our 6 fish boat limit. Fished in 600-700 feet of water with most the action in 680 ft. Downriggers were set at 25-30 feet with a green flasher and army truck/purple haze hoochies trolling at 3 MPH going North and South. Couldnt keep the Coho off! Since the fishing was so good we were releasing everything under 6 lbs. Average size was 8-10 lbs with our biggest coming in on the scales at 15 lbs. Bigger fish were being caught on our last day and should improve in size this week as their stomachs were all full of herring. Weather was decent, did rain but water conditions were excellent with barely a chop to none at all most mornings.

Good luck to all heading out there as fishing is so hot all 3 resort camping locations are first come first serve and the place was packed...

Day 3 started at 5:30 and went straght to slip point. Fished 80 to 500 ft of water 20 to 75 ft down. Flasher and spoon and flasher and coho killer. Had our 8 fish in the boat at 9:00 or so. One silver, one black mouth and 6 pink. Flat water clear, great sunrise. Released a few and lost a few.

Day 4 started at 5:30 in the fog straght to slip point 9 1/2 Lb king right after putting the lines in the water. Later I had to release one just like it with one more fin. Got 2 silvers and 5 pinks. Released a few more and lost a few. Put a small white dogger and pink squid on one line when the coho killer was not doing much. The white Coyote spoon did well, and the pinks did like the pink squid. Everything got herring oil or blood tuna. We were done at 10:15.

Day 2 started at 5:30 and had a few take downs but no fish until the after noon got one pink in the boat out in 350ft. Fishing the same as day one (see my report for 8/11) this would have been a 2 star day but after dinner we went over to slip point, we picked up 3 pink and a silver and lost a few. The evening should have been a 4 star. We were at slip point from 6:30 to 8:00.
