Opening day a bust for king salmon but more coho salmon than Ive ever seen. LOTS of orca (killer) whales, too. Many cohos coming up with bite marks. Sara thought maybe it was some of the baby whales learning to feed. We only fished from 3:30 am to 10:30 am. Sara was not used to the rough seas and when she came out to feed the fish for the 3rd time, I said let’s call it a day. Winds are supposed to lay down tomorrow, and with so few kings here at Yakobi Island, I expect a lot of boats will move elsewhere tomorrow. I’m a “homesteader”, and tend to wait for the fish to come by rather than chase them, and with so many coho salmon here
