Area 9 King

July 22, 2008

Midchannel Bank, Washington 07-22-08 06:00 AM ( about 1 hour )

Well, I finally got out for the first time this season in the Sound and after paying attention to the advice from PSA members, I managed to find a fish. I started out at PnP in the AM and got bored with the lack of action, so I decided to head to Midchannel Bank. Got there about 9AM and started the troll with my trusty white flasher and a UV Coho Killer. I was fishing by myself, so after I got things straightened out I finished lowering the gear the last 20ft to the bottom. Never made it there. The release popped and it was fish on! It’s been a long time since I’ve had a fish take line away like that and it was GREAT! He finally came up about 100yds behind the boat and jumped and I knew this was going to be fun. After another couple strong runs and some tug of war, I finally got it to the boat, checked the fin, and got it into the net on the first pass. 18lbs on my scale.

I worked in the same area for the next 4 hours and had 5 takedowns, two fish on, and no others to the boat. I missed two of the fish just because I was doing something on the boat and missed the initial strike. I didn’t get this guys big brother, but there was enough action to keep the blood moving. I would love to go back there again, but man it is a long haul from Everett, especially when the wind comes up like it did today.

Fished PnP for about an hour and had no action and didn't see anyone else with fish. I decided to move to Midchannel Bank.


No catches reported.

Nice fat one! White flasher huh? Never tried that one before. I've been having lots of luck with the UV flashers lately...
