Yes and no.

Yes, I think they are accurate in that they report what the angler that was interviewed reported.

No, in that they could be not telling the truth and sometimes there are only a few interviews.  I think most people tell the truth as the checkers often need to scan the fish for head tags and there would be no benefit to lying high.

When there are only 2-3 boats interviewed I don't place much weight on that, but when there are 100, I think it's very accurate on what was killed.  Both MA9 and 10 are big areas and particularly with the smoke you can only see the immediate area around, so it could be hot a short ways away and you wouldn't see it.

 We got our fish in 11 the last couple days, but it’s starting to take a bit longer.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I think more fish were caught than weighed in or checked.

How long do you think we have fishable numbers in 9 and 10....another week? Two?

Usually end of the month.  WDFW often calls the end more than the fish.  I’ve done best right up to the closure.

Jinxed myself I guess, zippo going on at Edmonds or Shipwreck today.  Probably more coming in soon but who knows.  I only saw one seal all day and a commercial at Edmonds pulled a blank net out of the water which pretty much crushed my spirit.

Made it back out today in MA10 after a two week hiatus.  Heard it was bad the last several days with the rain/weather, but fishing was good today with the settled weather and flat water.  Fish checker at Shilshole had checked 18 limits when I came in around 10.  Got my two in about 90 minutes around the morning low tide change.  Should be good this week with the better weather.  Go get 'em while you can, lock jaw is coming soon!

I'm headed to Edmonds with the family Sat morning for the last trip of the season, creel reports look iffy, most days 1 fish/boat or less.  Any recent action there?

Take your crab pots with you tomorrow, it opened again yesterday.  Imagine it should be good after being closed for a few weeks.

Yeah, I have them put away, but will probably throw two pots on the way down just for fun as I have some coho carcasses in the freezer I don't really want to keep in there until next July.

I would imagine a new school should wander through soon. The western straights are still lights out.  Good size fish to.

 11 has slowed way down, only got two on Tuesday and put my boat away likely for a while.

With the salt water doing as well as it has been, does anyone think theyll open some of these rivers that dont list a season in the regs? Like the Sky/Snoqualmie for example.
