Finally got on the water, after a summer of other priorities......boat in at 0430, as noted by C&G, pretty foggy this AM. Ran 9 lines, started in 40 fow with lots of cold water. No bumps in the dark/early AM so took a SE heading, picking up a 8 lb king on 8 colors with white flasher glow bullfrog fly in 84 fow. A few minutes later, a 6 lb rainbow came on a mag blue flounder pounder on mono rigger down 36. Saw a 4 degree temp break down 40, so marked that and started doing figure eights (more or less) in the area. picked up 4 more fish in the area with 85-90 being most productive, white pro troll flashers with either bullfrog or white flies on wire dipsies with 85-100 fox did the most damage. Finished 6/6 with 4 nicer kings biggest about 17 3/4 with an adipose fin, and two bows, biggest about 8 lbs. 1.8-2.0 old depth raider speed. Marked a few bait balls early, but very few hooks. Radio traffic was very light this AM, as were fish at the cleaning station when we came in....has some small birds in and on the boat after daylight most of the morning, including a few that slept on the rigger booms. Must've been disoriented by the fog and needed a place to rest...

Conditions: Foggy Water Temp: 51° - 55° F
Fished from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM, hoping the fog would burn off and get a mid day "full moon" bite. Neither worked. 0 for 0 today. Fog was so dense driving in the harbor we started fishing in the gap, zig-zagged out to 200 fow eventually, back to 130 fow, picked up and ran in to 20 fow, fished out to 75, nothing, and running 12 rods the whole time. Fog was really dense 90% of the time, highest water temp I saw was 52.5* and down to 48* on the surface, worse as you go down. Fishing is really poor right now, hopefully some warmer water finds it's way back near shore by next weekend.

Went out from noon to 3:30p today. Fished a 3 mile north/south line due east of Port Washington. Stayed in about 130 foot of water, fishing between 40-80 feet down. Got one bite initially after dropping the first downrigger, before getting the second one in. That was it for the day. :-( And managed to lose it at the side of the boat before netting it. Looked to be a decent sized (24"+) Chinook. 1-3 foot rollers as the day went on. Less than 1/2 mile in fog going out, but about 2 miles visibility away from shore. Better than 3 miles coming in. Winds pretty calm. Talking to a few others, doesn't sound like the bite has been very good. Surface water temp, 48F.

Decided fishing sounded better than working today and crappy forecast for tomorrow so........went out this morning. 4 for 4, 2 Bows, 2 Kings. 5 for 5 if you count the totally awesome Spiderman balloon we netted! Wink

Water is really cold. Warmest I saw was 51* in the harbor. Didn't mark much, fished from 30 fow to 300, really foggy at times. 3 fish came on orange spoons on 4 and 5 lead, 1 on a F/F Dipsey back 120 ft. Fishing is slow with this super cold water (most places 46* - 48* on top and worse as you go down). Didn't hear of anybody that got more than 4 this morning. Maybe it'll warm a little until Sunday AM but I'm not holding my breath. We'll see...

I was right about it being better than working though!

Friday afternoon

1/3 - Nice laker, missed laker at the net, and a heartbreaking nice king lost at the net. This one is still swimming with a howie fly and a Dragon Slayer flasher I underestimated the difficulty netting fish by myself Smile

Saturday

After shortening my leads and idling back on hits I went..

5/5 - 2 lakers and 3 kings. One 17 lbs.

Sunday morning

1/1 - decent king. Left before the storms around 8:30 AM.

Worked primarily 75 to 120 a little north of the harbor.

6 caught on flashers flies (lemon ice Spin Doctor and Big Weenie cracked ice took 3). Only one caught on a spoon (bloody nose) but this was my largest king.

Late report from Friday night (the 21st).

Went out in the high rollers Friday night. Made for some miserable fishing at the start when we first set lines at 5pm. Maintaining speed and direction was tough. We had a strike at 6:30 that didn't hook up on a thunderstick. Next fish wasn't until 9:30 when we lost a 5-6 pound king right at the back of the boat. Hit on an orange glow spoon. Last fish came at 11:30 where we finally boated a 5-6 pound king on the same orange glow spoon. Stayed out until 1am when the rolling seas finally got the best of us and we called it quits. Worked 40-90 fow north and south of the harbor. Never really marked any good solid schools. Was tough.
