Largest Chinook : 38lbs.
Largest Halibut : 54lbs.

The salmon fishing for the past couple of days has been about average.  The run of large Springs has slowed up but there is quite a bit of action to be had on small Chinook (10-15 pounds) and there are still growing concentrations of Coho salmon in the area.  As of this morning we did see signs of a run of larger Chinook coming into the area on the outskirts of Parker Passage(#9 to #10).  The fish brought in by the few boats that experienced the bite,  brought in Chinook weighing in the high 20's and early 30's.  Spoons have still been the weapon of choice, especially the Coyote 5.0 Party Girl pattern.  It has been a proven producer for all the salmon species in the area.

The halibut fishing has still been great at the #8 buoy in Parker Passage and the Pinnacle(#1) buoy has been a great spot to limit out on 20-40 pound Halibut.  Herring on spreader bars are by far the best presentation when anchored. 

For the bottomfishing enthusiast, we are glad to announce that we have had realtively flat weather and had a chance to bounce around offshore.  Towner banks and "The Boot" have been excellent areas to limit out on Snapper and Lingcod.  So far there hasn't been any significant catch of Halibut out there, but we will keep you posted.
