A baker’s dozen yesterday. Lots of herring here, with a couple dozen eagles constantly airborne over the schools, trying for a fish. Today, overcast, with 6 fish from 4am to 9am.
Caught my first coho of the season yesterday, and one more today.
Catching many small halibut. I’d always thought of them as strictly bottom dwellers, but I’ve caught many at least 60 feet off the bottom, likely traveling up to feed on the massive schools of herring here.
