Hello guys,

Always a pleasure to go fishing at Montrose Harbour. Few nice and friendly fishermen. That's a shame because it's a great place to fish! Make this place more welcoming and help nature sustain??

Use minnows, night crawlers! The best at this times of the year. Spoon works good on sunny day for coho and trout!

My first day of fishing in 2015. Was a nice at Montrose, lot of fishermans using poser lines. Saw one guy with 5 cocos. The guy apparently started at 5 in the morning. I met him at 4pm. He told me that they were really close to the shore that day.

Percy will be here pretty soon with the weather warming up quickly.

Has anyone seen any King's near shore yet this year? If so, what bait do you recommend? Spoon (Red eye? Lil Cleo? or Crocodile?) Mepps (#3,4, or 5?) Cranks? other?

Looking to catch my first King before I move out of the city next month...

Thanks!

Fished Montrose, outside the harbor, yesterday morning for the reopening of perch season. We kept 12, caught most of them around 6:15 am. the biggest were 12". It took some sorting, we probably caught 80 to keep 12. Caught them on softshells and minnows.
