Bottom fishing improved a little bit from yesterday asn the 47-degree water is slowly starting to warm up and the fish are responding better today then they did yesterday and a few days before.  The Lingcod bite is pretty good as they seem to like the colder water better then the rockfish do.

Salmon fishing today remains excellent even though it appeared from one viewpoint that there was a tiny-tiny bit less action then the past few days. It was still fantastic as we had limits on our boats today.

Crabbing remains just around a little below average from past years at this time with possibly 2-3 per person depending on the boat.
