Got up early, and found that the forecast had changed from East 30 to SW 15, so headed back to White Sisters in a light swell.. Apparantley, I did not get the memo that all the fish were gone from there, as there were no other boats, and very few fish. The SW swell continued to build, and with no fish, I pointed the bow west and fished with the swell the rest of the day. only caught 8 kings, but 60 cohos. I lost a lead when I went too shallow, and by that time (6 ish) I’d had enough, so I pulled the gear, and headed for Squid Bay, where I used anchor often when I fished Cape Cross my second year of trolling. Tomorrow I’ll probably follow the same game plan and fish west to Yakobi, and then start for home. I’ll finally be in cell range tomorrow so I can call Sara if she’s home.
