Cabin Fever bit us last weekend (Sunday). Daughter and I went out for some boat therapy. 

Had one little coho and one brown. missed three others at the back of the boat. I think my little reeler was cold or very forgetful about keeping the rod tip up and they shook loose just out of netting range. 

Fun day. Ice was in the gap at first , but then blew back in when the wind switched to the east.

Fun day out on the water!!

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

I caught my first Port Washington brown trout this weekend. My son has caught some with me but this is my first time I got to reel one in.   I admittedly don't really know what I am doing with this style of fishing but each time I come out I learn a little bit more.  I live an hour away from Port and I am getting pretty addicted to this type of fishing.  It also seems like each time I come out the bite is drastically different and I get to learn a whole new way to try and catch them LOL.   I am thinking by next year I will have it dialed in.

Went out Friday and the harbor was loaded with Salmon.  They bit right when the sun was coming up and after that we had zero fish in the harbor. We moved to the warm water discharge and missed a big brown trout.  I am kind of new to this style of fishing and I am at 30 hours of fishing with no fish LOL.  I only cried a little bit.

Mr Backlash,

Hey, I dont mind helping you out. So, majority of the salmon (kings,cohos) have already ran up the rivers and spawning/spawned. The peak of the run was last weekend unfortunately. We are suppose to have rain this weekend so the water can or would be dirty which makes bad conditions. If, however, it doesn't rain, alot of steelheads and brown trouts are staging to run up the rivers before the winter, which you'll find on the piers atm. You can find browns and steelies in the rivers because of the cold front, but they will be hard to find. Depending on which fish you want to go for, I personally would go towards the rivers if it doesn't rain to target easier fish that haven't seen alot of lures unlike the pier where there are people morning to night.

My son and I will be coming up Thursday night to try our luck on Friday. We don't get to do this much so we are by no means pros at it. Just looking for a report on weather or not they are biting and maybe what they are biting on. It has been at least 2 or 3 years since we have been up there so I am sure things have changed around there. Any other tips would be very helpful as well. We only have one day to do this so we want  to make the best of it and try to take some home this time.

Thank you in advance for any help.

justinm- so happy you and the boys had success! I hope the spawn I gave you lasted most of the day. I'm glad you posted because I was wondering how you did. Maybe see you again this winter for the winter brown fishing, and bring the boys!

Best King salmon video i have seen this year....Very good editing, makes me want to go out there and try to catch one!

Bravo to the fisherman on there fine netting skills, many a landings are lost at the net, good job netting those Kings!

Keep teaching those boys good fishing etiquette...NOT SNAGGING!
