King fishing remains poor, but coho fishing improved today. We decided to start marketing our pink salmon this year due to the derth of chum salmon…which means I actually have to clean all the little buggers. The pink salmon will soon pass thru, however, and I know I need to make hay while the sun shines. We ran into Elfin Cove as the forecast calls for 25 naut easterlies. This makes it tough to anchor in our usual spot, and tough to fish Cross Sound, as I learned fishing this winter. So, we may run into the inside waters to fish, knowing we may not get any kings in there, but also knowing we arent missing many kings out here either. The high point of the day was that we caught a very large dime bright king late in the day after catching none for a few hours.
