Largest Chinook : 51lbs.
Largest Halibut : 90lbs.

There is only one word that can explain the past few days....perfect! The weather was flat, sunny and clear and the Chinook were biting like never seen before and they were big.  16 Tyees this last trip and countless 20 plus pounders which dwarved the rest of the season with the biggest of the bunch being 50 and 51 pounds.  The honey hole really showed what it was made of, from Sailor Rock all the way to the back corner produced all the hogs.  Trolling protrolls and green glow spoons did the best down at about 45 to 60 feet.  The Coho were very plentiful all over the map and huge, averaging about 10-12 pounds right now.  Using flashers either with a hoochie or spoon or as a dummy flasher was very effective in enticing a bite.

The halibut fishing was ok and ground fishing was about average.  You had to work at it but Isnor Rock and Wells did give up limits of ling and snapper if the time was put in.

Great trip, lets hope the big ones are here to stay.  Consensus among regular and local pros are that the run is late and the fish are just coming in now to feed in Caamano Sound from offshore.
