Went out 6:30a to 2:00p. Caught 5 out of 6. No monsters, but I can't complain getting a few fish in the dead sea after this past month. Fished 20-60 fow, spoons for everything that made it in the boat and lost one on a plug.

Had a beautiful morning of fishing, fishing was alittie slow, conditions have been changing quickly. Went 5 for 7 all on spoons. Tried shallow for browns early withe no luck, went off shore found 2 degree temp change and got 6 nites in an hour before trip was over. Fish bit 40-50' down in 100 - 125 fow. Ten color lead and dipseys caight them. Fish are still here, nice because theres no boat traffic.

Don't waste your time is the best advice I can give, been trolling from in front of piers to now 175 fow Every depth, threw the whole arsenal at them, j- plugs, flasher flies, spoons, rapalas, shad raps. Can't catch a dam thing. Had one hit FF in front of piers. Saw only 2 fish caught by charters. Were gonna keep trolling out to 300 fow. Beautiful out now! Had 1 big king almost jump in boat. There are a few jumping around harbor. I did real well in may, june ,July and middle of August. Now it's pretty junky.

Had nice trips this week end with Todd and his friends and Terry and his friends. We worked off shore fish 250 - 325 fow, down 40 - 70'. Catching bows, lakers and kings on mostly my own spoons. During the wind we worked 20 - 40' withe J plugs, cranks and spoons. We got some nice kings and browns to keep action going. Fish were tempromental in the constant changing weather.

was out 9/9/16 fished 5-9pm went 2-4, ran into Pirate Charters at the cleaning station great guy gave me some pointers as he cleaned his pile of fish for some happy clients. If your looking to get out i would book a trip with him if hes not filled up. Good luck to all!
Regarding the surface temperatures, I was getting 68-69 in 35-40 feet of water on Saturday evening (and boated no fish). Tuesday of last week I found temp's as low as 63 (and marked large pods of bait fish) and boated 3 kings in 35-40 feet of water. Lets hope the warm waters move outward!
