Pac NW action

Postby wdlfbio » Mon Sep 08, 2014 11:12 pm

haven't been able to get out on the better of our days. Mostly fishing in 3-5' swells at 8-10 seconds with 1-3' of wind chop. Finally we got a pretty flat day. Mostly 3' at 12+ seconds and maybe 1'-2' wind chop. Had my dad, brother, nephew, and his best friend (both from WY and never really been on the ocean). We made a 45 mile run SW looking for albacore and quickly found some jumpers. Tossed some chum and live chovies on #2 hooks and it was game on for the better part of 2 hours. Ended up killing 21 albacore for 5 of us on that one stop. Also got my nephew broken in properly after catching his first tuna.

Took it easy the next day (increasing offshore winds and swell) and went salmon fishing for a couple hours. Pretty nice action in only 35' of water. Really cut down on the fuel bill too. A few nice silvers and decent kings.

Looks like a couple good days! I think id rather target those salmon than albies anyway! Fuel savings is a bonus too!

Might need to swap a trip... Fresh Ahi sounds pretty good too

Looks like a great trip. Wore out that crew. Darn though that is a lot of clothes for fishing. :D I guess it's a little chilly up there.

Haaaa. Very true. I get down to Mexico every other year or so and it's a joy to fish in sandals and shorts. Never really tried Xtratufs and shorts up here :lol:
