Largest Chinook : 40lbs.
Largest Halibut : 121lbs.

There is good and bad in every story or so they say and that is also very true when it comes to a fishing tale.  The good is that the Coho finally showed up in numbers, our fishermen pounded on them in the middle of Beauchemin Channel down around 80-120 feet and some of them were beauties.  Some more good is that the offshore fishing has improved as well, and depending on the tide..usually ebb guys are having no problems limiting out there in a half day.  Another good is that big halis are being caught out there as well.  The bad is that the Chinook fishing was fairly slow these last few days, a big part of it is that the weather(NW winds) didn't allow for access to Area 51 so most boats trolled number 5 and the honey hole looking out in the distance knowing that the grass is greener on the other side.  However it still seems like the Chinook numbers on our side are picking up again and maybe across the way is phasing out.  Some short but sweet bites were had at sailor rock especially in the evenings, which coincidentally was the peak of the high tide. 

Not a bad trip by any means, but have seen better,  Still rolling anchovies behind a flasher is the best method at wrangling the springs, flasher/hoochie setups by far the best for Coho.
