Largest Chinook : 34lbs.
Largest Halibut : 71lbs.

So we had a pretty good few days.  The weather was as flat as you can imagine, absolutely great weather.  The salmon fishing for the past few days was pretty good, the Chinook offered up some good action all over the map.  No real hotspots, just good consistant action all over.  The Coho action has been phenomenal at the top end of the islands, some of the best we have seen.  Guests towards the end of the  trip were releasing  lots up around Wall Island.  Still pulling spoons and protrolls down 35 to 55 feet at Kettle Inlet, Borrowman Bay, Arnie's Hole, number 7 and the NE tip of Rennison.  The more popular styles have been chrome needlefish spoons, Army Truck and Party Girl Coyote Spoons and some guys are dragging flasher hoochie combos and absolutely hammering the Coconuts(coho).

Bottomfishing is still great.  A good jag of fish has come from Towner Bank, but some closer spots by Moore Island have produced some excellent Halibut and huge Snapper and Lingcod.  Little Kettle has also been a great spot for good size Halibut.
