Yep, that's Norm's boat, contracts with SPC and usually picks up troll fish in Lower Chatham.

Can't believe it, but my "break" is already over and I'm ready to head back out.  Loading up on fuel and heading back out through the locks this afternoon. Going to start off the coast of WA for kings and halibut, then decide whether to chase tuna down here or run north to AK for the July 1 king opener. 

I'll let the fish and the markets tell me what to do, gotta stay flexible.  I will be back in the Puget Sound soon with fresh whole halibut, maybe some fresh ocean troll kings, flash frozen AK coho portions and flash frozen AK yelloweye filets.  If anybody is interested, send me a pm and we'll get a plan together.

Happy hunting y'all

Probably going to have a few extra each week after I drop off fish for my customers around Seattle and SeaTac.  I'm getting enough interest I may start a new thread when I have a better handle on the details.

Thanks!

I'm in for whole halibut and some yelloweye fillets.

Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Looks like we'll be starting on the Copper River either the 14th of May or the 17th.

First trip of 2018 in the books and pitched off to a buyer last night.  Thanks for all the PM's, once I get an idea of how much interest I have and where, we'll get some fish out to you guys.

I think an eastside run is totally doable - if not on this next week, the one after.  The last thing I want to do is not have time to meet my commitments and disappoint anybody. 

Thanks for the interest, I'll start a new thread here soon and we can get the details put together.  Until then, PM's are great to help me with planning.

Thanks again!

Right on man, thanks for supplying us with those famous kings and sockeye!  Good luck, be safe-

Same here.



Skillet, I didn't read the whole thread but I'm assuming you are bringing back some caught of the trip fish to sell to huntwa folks.
I'd totally be up for a random $100 mix bag of your fresh catch if you work out some sort of Eastside delivery....
