Run the deep six at daylight and then switch to mooching.  Most of the fish will be in the 45-60' or deeper and you won't be able to touch them with any speed pulling a diver and flasher.

Or, set your sights on pinks which you can run shallower and much slower.

If you have your sights set on catching salmon in the sound with a boat, I would be budgeting for a downrigger asap, even a manual would be 1,000x better than divers.
If we end up liking fishing out there we might have to work on gettin the 21í sled out there and settin it up with down riggers, we just want to test the waters first! I appreciate the info!!!

I will add that we have stopped using plug cut herring over the years in the sound because of the high amount of dogfish.  The Dogfish will not leave plug cut herring alone.  So to alleviate having to reset our gear and rebait every 15 minutes due to Dogfish, we stopped using herring a long time ago.  Coho Killers, Coyote Spoons, Kingfishers, and Hoochies are our mainstay now behind a flasher.  However, The Brad's Killer Cut Plug style "spinners" are really awesome, and they have a scent chamber with a little piece of foam in them too.  You can squirt your favorite attractant in there, or use a wad of canned tuna in there.  They are a good alternative to a plug cut herring.

One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

Instead of triangles or 360's use Leo's flashers. They work a triangle if set on the center hole and rotate like a 360 if you use the side hole setting and they don't drag like the 360's.

Do you use a bumper leader with them?

I do yes.
