Bottom fishing

Three of our four boats out this morning had terrific trips and were home an hour early with limit catches. No official information on the crabbing but it has been so good lately I think it would be safe to assume that it was really good also.


The catching seems to be slowing down as these salmon in our area seem to be moving north to get ready to run the rivers up north.  One of our vessels brought home six really healthy looking salmon for some lucky customers.  There are still reports of fish moving up thru our area from the south so the salmon catch might improve quite a bit if you’re here on the right day.  Remember the season is open daily till September 30th.
