FINALLY back underway to the outside coast to fish again. The state dept of fish and game announced that the king salmon season is opened until further notice, which means we arent the only boat not catching kings. If the fish were as expected wed catch them in a couple weeks. But if theres one thing Im learning is that theres no such thing as an “average” year. Maybe the kings are staying offshore. Maybe abundance is lower than predicted. Maybe there are so many cohos the kings cant get to our lures as readily. In any event, all we hope for now is no more mechanical problems so we can find our fishing rhythum for the summer.
