Coho, areas 9 and 10, 2020
« on: August 31, 2020, 09:55:52 AM »
I have Mondays off this month so @CP I'm planning on fishing for my favorite salmon at least a few good trips. How are we feeling about the run? Let's share reports as we get into the season.

Tight lines!

I was just thinking about it, I will probably be heading out sometime this week as schedule permits.

Will do!  :tup:  It's getting to be Coho time.  I expect most people will be targeting MA-10 this year since MA-9 is hatchery only.

I was out yesterday off West Point to yellow bouy.  We landed one about four pounds and lost two at the net.  One was a really good size Coho for this early.  Didnít see a lot of nets flying but a few.

It will only get better.  Strikes came at 33 to 55 fsw.  Ace-hi fly was the ticket for me.  Thinking I should put a herring strip on them.  Anyone do that?  Is it worth the extra step?

Always, salted strips on flies and hoochies.

I've been fishing a lot, about 3 mornings per week.  Went today, went yesterday.  There have been tons of coho in MA10, hard to know at this point which ones are still residents and which are ocean fish.  We've got a few the last two weekends that were clearly ocean fish, but most are still 4-5 lbs. I got one yesterday that was a tubby 8 lbs. 

I always use a herring strip on my hootchie.  If I don't have bait, I'll use spoons instead.

WaCoues you have been posting some nice fish for sure.  Iím hoping we get a lot of those tubby Coho this year.

Anyone have any tips for getting more Coho?  I seem to be just lucking in to a couple.  Tips anyone?  Will salt up some herring for end of the week.

Me too!  We've had years here and there when all the fish were small.  This is not going to be one of those years, there are some nice fish trickling in.  Fish checker at Shilshole said she saw one that was in the 14 lb range!

Good news, running from Everett to Edmonds for a 1-fish limit @ 4 pounds last year was pretty lame.

No kidding.  I just looked back at the 2019 Everett Derby results...only four fish over 10 lbs for like 2,000 anglers!  Don't think that will be the case this year.

Sure won't be the same this year, there will probably be 6,000 anglers if it's anything like the other seasons so far.

We were out in MA9 last Thursday and seemingly had the whole area to ourselves.  Sometimes hardly a boat in sight.  Fish and bait were a bit scarce.  Will give it another go this week.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

the crowds will spread back out into 9 once 10 is closed for chinook also.
