As normal we fished saturday and sunday.
Saturday- Today was a battle with weather. One minute it would be sunny and the next thunder and lightning. when it was nice we fished. had lots of bites but they never stuck. they were hitting strangely. finally my pole goes off with a good hit and my mom was right there so she grabbed it. right away we all could tell it was a nice fish. we got it. as i was bleading it i saw their were giant dog like teeth and i thought not a coho... a chum. thuis was the very first chum salmon ever in our boat. it also was one of the few times it was legal to keep but it was. throughout the day we kept getting weird bites and only got 1 more fish.
Sunday- today was better weather and the fish actually hid normal. today we only lost 1 fish.it still took us several hours but we ended up with our limit of 6 fish. Fish were all over between 45 and 100 feet deep. we used sling blades and ace hi flys with short leaders. only about 10 inches. also used pro-cure anise bloody tuna.

walking to the boat at 6:30ish the line for the boat ramp at olsens was to van ripers offices. lots of people came in the night before. real tough geting dock space even with a couple docks bow tied. weather turned awful, windy and rough. went out in front of the caves again and got a 3.5lb silver that was released. got 2 quick 7lb silvers and my dad got a 9lb. blue ace hi fly for me, his usual half and half dodger with cutplug. 45 pulls agaiin. weather was to bad to want to stay out so we put it on the trailer and headed for lake sutherland.

Fished Saturday and Sunday. Talked with a couple people that said it had been flat calm and great fishing the past 3 days so we were super excited.
Saturday- tides were not the best so we launched at 7:30 or so. Up until now it was flat calm like a lake and as soon as we got out there there were 2 to 3 footers all over. Didn't want to motor very far with the waves so only went to 200 feet and caught nothing in the 20 minutes we were there. we knew we were too shallow though. after awhile in camp i called our buddy that was fishing with us to see if it calmed down and he said it only got worse. he was in a 22 foot boat and took multiple waves into the boat he said so we were glad to be in because we were only 16 feet. went out for an evening bite when it got down to 2 and 3 footers again instead of 4 and 5 footers and instantly caught a fish on the lure i tied. it was almost dark so we headed in then.
Sunday today they called a small craft advisory and today there was about 4 to 6 inch waves if that and yesterday there was no advisory. Hmmm? not very accurate. anyway got out there and it wasn't the best fishing but it was alright. at the end of the day got 4 fish. believe it or not i caught more than the ace hi flys and hoochies with my lure that i tied which was cool. had one fish that broke my 30 lbs leader that wasn't kinked or frayed at all so definitely had on one good fish. all were on dodgers with 10 or 12 inch leaders and almost any flashy or glow lure. we used pro cure's blue bait dye with brine'n'bite to toughen up the herring and the blue herring worked better than normal herring. also used pro cure anise bloody tuna gel scent which also really helped.

The morning brought what seemed like utter chaos in Sekiu. I waited 20 minutes to check out of my cabin. Boats were lined up to launch at Olson’s all the way to Van Ripers. People for Olson’s kept riding around looking for places for people to park, directing them to it. I have never seen it like this. Boat trailers were parked up the hill on Washington street almost to #112. There were people camping at the top of the hill across 112. It was amazing.
We headed out toward the west but not as far as yesterday. Somewhere north of Eagle Point. We proceeded to get the boats limit of 8 Coho in 2 hours. I used Coho Mojo with a Hot Spot Green Glo Flasher and the new Red Neck-lace on a Q-Cove Flasher in some sort of Crush. As we finished a north-east wind came up and there were swells and it got nasty. Standing on the hill looking down at the bay we could see the whitecaps and the boats moving with the waves at the docks.

the green ace hi fly was to mangled and missing to much tinsel to continue so the blue replaced it. fished the same flasher and deep six size 2 at 45 pulls but in front of the caves in much closer then all the other boats. 2 more quick limits with a double header, had 1 the day before too, and 3 blackmouth released. stayed in close to beat the rush back to the docks, it was getting crazy crowded. water was getting choppier and the weather was getting colder.

Like normal we fished Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday- Today was just my dad and I. started in 300 feet and trolled to 450 feet and got better as we got deeper. neither of us could keep the fish off. It averaged out to be a fish every eight minutes. It was just non stop crazy action. boated 15 and kept 4.
Sunday- had 4 people in the boat today and got out same time. it was just as good as yesterday but after 9 or so the bite really slowed down. still caught fish just not as many. ended up with 3 today. had a dozen fish to the boat today. All fish were any where between 35 and 100 feet on the riggers and on dodgers with a 10 or 12 inch leader with hoochies, ace hi flys, and a really cool lure that i tie. tons of fun. no big fish but still lots of fish.

fished over the weekend on saturday and sunday.
Saturday- tides wee really bad for where we were launching so couldn't get out until 9:30. i ran a macks lure double d dodger and so did my dad and we both caught nothing so i switched to a shasta tackle sling blade and nailed them. i put a bend in the back of it to give it more kick. right away i caught a wild. i had on a green and glow hoochie about 10 inches behind the dodger. then a little while later i caught another wild. my dad reeled his in to check and the whole time he had on and was trolling a dink about a foot long and didn't realize it. then i caught a hatchery finally and now since my dad was actually fishing he caught one... a wild though. we went a while without a bite and we called it to go for sea bass and my dad really wanted to just reel in the rod then downrigger and i convinced him to crank in the rigger first and let the lyure float through the water column and i did too. as i did that and was reeling in guess what? i caught the bigger fish that was hatchery like that. next we headed to the kelp at pillar for sea bass and only caught one small greenling. only because it was getting rough though and we had to go in. then late in the evening we went out just for greenling and sea bass and only our second fish I hooked was BIG as soon as i got the bite my reel started screaming non-stop and then... SNAP! and he is gone just like that.never got a look but in 20 feet of water and by the kelp and rocks my guess was a really big lingcod. he snapped 30 pound test. we caught about a dozen and only kept 1 big bass though. when we filleted the bigger fish we opened the belly and found the chunk of just tail of herring from my dads rod the cut plug out the back and my herring. i could tell they were our herring because we died ours blue and all of the herring were blue. he hit all three rods and i ended up getting him on the last rod to hit.
Sunday- today for some reason we didn't get a bite even though we did the same thing as the day before. our buddy did good today though. we again caught a couple keeper greenling and bass. all coho were caught in 450 to 500 feet of water at 100 feet on the rigger with green glow hoochies or ace hi flys short behind a dodger not flasher. all bottomfish caught were on the sonic baitfish between 12 and 30 feet deep just off the rock bottom in the sand along the rock.

This report for 8/30, 8/31 & 9/1. To say that the coho fishing was hot would be an understatement. Lots of boats out and it appeared that limits for everyone was the rule. We caught upwards of 20 fish every day to get to our limits of hatchery fish. Native fish outnumbered the hatchery fish 3 to 1. We fished hootchies and irish creme tailwagger spoons tipped with cured herring strips 50 feet down on the downriggers. We fished everywhere from 275 feet of water to 525 feet and caught fish everywhere. Not sure if the fish moved deeper later in the day as we were tagged out by 9:00 AM each day. On Sunday we decided to try for sea bass over by the caves after limiting on coho. On the 1st drop use a 2 oz jig a huge king hit the jig like a runaway truck. Great fight. Tried to quick release but no go as the fish was hooked good. Fish released unharmed from the side of the boat. Fish was at least 25 lbs and was fin clipped. Shame I could not have hooked this one back in July when it would have been a keeper. I would suspect that this fantastic coho fishery will go on for a couple more weeks possibly more.
