Wow they tried starting some problems with me and my friend and that is when we decided to quit fishing. it was a large group of them and 1 of them was wearing a puerto recan flag on his shoulders. That really makes me mad. they weren't even fishing, they were just there to start some problems.

There were only two lone fisherman out there with us and they were both really nice guys. One shared some fishing tips and the other helped us net a fish. What a shame.

Late report - It's for the morning of August 1, but I thought I would share after reading the reports below as it "fits." Trolled Saturday morning 6:30AM to 9:30Am from 35fow to 80fow east and northeast of the middle gap. Ran 7 lines with assorted offerings and had 0 hits. There were a few marks.

Well I fished from shore today before and after the storm and you had to be doing something wrong to not walk off with a few. The fish I caught were fat and full of alewives. Almost everyone out there caught today.

Edit: after getting home and cleaning the fish I realised all my chinook had their adipose fins.

Fished this morning from 330-830 with three guys and managed the same lack of success as all the other crews in the water. We ran the shallow water in front of the harbor with 1 through 7 colors and a pair of riggers. Planer boards with LEDs attached for the night bite were again a blast to watch in the dark. Sadly though our 4 color ripped only 3 times taking one small king. Looking forward to getting back into a normal August routine.

2 for 2 this morning (Kings). 4 guys, 5 hours, Casting then trolling and got one doing each. Harbor King bite may be near done for now. Bait like it was the last 3 weeks... GONE (still straggler groups n small schools but not like it was the last 10 days or so), Kings GONE (at least in the numbers that they were in in the last 2 weeks). If you pound the water hard there is still a fish or two to be caught but just 4 days ago it was hard not to find a boat jigging without a fish on. Today, very easy with the same high boat traffic to see many like me are struggling. If the bait doesn't come back in force like it was???... it may be over for now. 44* water is now 58* - 60* and there are some remaining bait schools and some Kings, but not the masses there was just days ago. Man I hope I am wrong but all signs point to... gona have to find another pattern. We only saw one other boat catch a (1) fish today. Side Scan is helping us stay on the bait and hooks when there is not a lot to be found.

Newbie at trolling here - trying to learn and understand some of the lingo and acronyms. (After my last question, I'm almost afraid to ask another.)First I want to say thanks to all of you willing to share info and help out the newbies and promote the sport of fishing. That is what helps to make this a great site. Reading through reports, I often see "LOC". I initially thought that referred to "Lengths of Color" in regards to leadcore line but recently I've seen several reports that refer to "110 loc" or "125 loc" and a few posts down "90 loc". Since this would equate to 900 yards, obviously this is not "Lengths of Color" of leadcore line since there is probably not a reel big enough to accommodate that much line. So my ? is - what is "loc"???

My rant was not directed at Banjo persay. It was directed at the folks who follow the HERO season mantra mentality. Sorry to offend. My apologies.

I don't think you read that right, doc. Probably better to go back to reports.

Tried same places we caught kings yesterday. .. nada. Went out to 90 fow and marked no bait or fish. Came back in to 35 fow and managed two big browns, 1 on bite me elmo on 4 color and other on dipsey/chartreuse spoon 90 loc (small dipsey). Crazy temp changes and all bait tight to bottom up shallow. Fish are moving daily.

What a childesh thing to say that trolling is easy. There is an art to running boards, leadcore, riggers and dipsi all at the same time. Paying attention to current (both surface and subsurface), wind direction, gps speed (surface and at ball), water temperature (surface and thermocline), lattitude & longitude etc...shall I digress? In comparison to jigging for kings which is really an art? Trolling takes years...decades to perfect. Jigging for kings can be perfected in a 4 hour chartered trip with a decent guide. Really? Stick to what you know and don't talk smack.
