Another slow day of coho fishing. Caught about 30 and happy to get that even. Nice larger fish, too, and not so many pinks today about 45 or so. Fishing is so slow I heard 2 guys heading to theharbor because they think their not catching fish has something to do with missing sacrificial boat zincs and not to lack of fish. This year our direct marketing is paying off the most with catches so low.

I fished along an island at North Inian Pass today. The current is so strong in the pass that if you get sucked down through it, you can’t troll back through because the current is faster than my boat will go. I was stuck there for a couple of hours before I could get back to where the cohos were biting, and by that time they were gone. Sealions and or sharks stole several spoons, too.
