Creel reports are really dropping off, hot opener but quickly reverting to more typical catch rates.  Sunday was .13 fish per rod out of Everett.

I think thats because all the blackmouth that havent seen gear in 11 months (due to no winter fishery) were seeing the buffet table of fishing gear.  Now that a lot of easy BM have been caught, there just arent a lot of fish around.
 Consensus seems to be that most of the fish impacting the quota arent even ocean fish, with a few exceptions.  Everyone is keeping blackmouth.  By the time the ocean fish are in 9 it will be shut down.

I agree with Bronson 100% on this. Most all the fish my contacts have caught are all cookie cutter 5-8lb fish, including the fish my wife caught on Sunday.

I would agree as well, seen several very nice fish and a whole bunch of residents.  Not that there is anything wrong at all, but that is clearly what is happening.  WDFW managed to dish out a double whammy, first no fishing for blackmouth, then having them count against the chinook limit so we'll get shorted there too.  Just when you thought you have seen all the screwy fish management possible.

I see that pressure has dropped way off as well.  Opening day, the launch parking lot was overflowing by 5:00am; this morning it was less than half full at 6:00am.  I think most of those boats were just crabbing.  Crabbing pressure has dropped way off too.

We got one BM yesterday morning.  Not another net seen flying.  A guy down the dock got about a 10 lb-er this morning, real early.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

I finally got the opportunity to get the boat out.  It was primarily a shake-down run but I ended up doing the solo net dance.
