Cmon,
Speak up.. who's braved the cold and gotten out on the water?  I've been out of town but hoping to go get some lines wet and dial in the new boat soon  :tup:

Been out twice to Appletree/Kingston around the morning tide change.  Lots of shakers, released a few wilds, and lost a really nice one near the boat, didn't know if it was wild or not, but was definitely keeper size.  Went out yesterday, not much bait or fish marking on but it was a pretty weak tide change.  Jan 2 when we went out it was fish all over the place and nice balls of bait.  Got 12 hook ups then, 4 yesterday.

Was seeing most fish suspended in the 60 to 70 ft range and getting strikes there.  Not marking many working the bottom like you normally hear about.

There has not been anyone on the dry docks in Edmonds that the workers have known to bring in a Chinook yet.  Sounds like it's been slow going. 

Will probably run down to Jeff Head next time out, little more area to work off of to find bait.

Has anyone been out? The resurrection derby numbers are 329 anglers with 62 hatchery chinook. When does this fishery usually get hot?

That derby had some amazing fish caught!

From what I've gathered on the catch rate, that is blackmouth fishing.  There isn't really a hot time.  It's a matter of finding the bait and where that bait is.  All the fish that are there are going to be there all season.  Maybe towards the end of the season they might grow another inch or so to make em legal, but not sure.

Lots of sub-legal fish has been the report and what I've seen.  Have got 1 22" on the dot into the boat out of 3 trips in area 10 twice and 9 on sunday.  Maybe 20 sub legals and 1 hog I lost near the boat the obviously we couldn't tell if wild or not.

Weather hasn't been great, it's just a get out whenever you can that's safe and see how it goes!

Thanks for the update, I’ve heard they’re running shallower than normal, are you seeing that?  I’m hoping to get out soon and give a report. I bought a pair of Scotty 2106B down riggers and I’m itching to use them.

In 9, I've heard deeper, out to 150, but that was point no point and pilot point. Kingston we were finding them in 90 to 120.

That’s good to hear! I did some research and from what I gathered that was the consensus. I also added the sure stop and weight retriever.

Thanks again, I was thinking starting around Kingston. We did well there for coho this summer.

Be sure to have a spare belt or two for the Scotty's.  When they start to go out, they will lower very slowly or even stop.

Ive been running Scotty 1106s for 10 years.  The only thing I have had to replace are  the line counters every couple of years.  Things are bullet proof.  I noticed last week that I have  belt that looks like it is getting worn out.  So I will grab another to keep on the boat in case.

This is good to hear. Hope we have the same reliability. We’ve been using my dads old penn fathom master and we’ve had at least one problem literally every time we went out this past summer.

Scotty makes a quality product.  Like mentioned, I replaced a counter every once in a while and belts.  I used to rinse them really well but ended up getting water in the motor and had to replace that.  Now, I do a quick spray focusing on the boom and try not to get the head part wet and that solved the issue.

They are easy to work on, adjust and replace parts and John's in Everett has everything you need.

The line counter is the Achilles heel.  I have two on my boat, and typically fish just one downrigger.  The other gets used a handful times a year.  Well the line counter went out again on the rigger that barely gets used.  Not a huge deal, as I have only had to replace them 4-5 times in 10 years, and only a $20 part.  Just seems like a design flaw and should be made to last longer.
