Coho
« on: August 15, 2022, 12:28:04 PM »
Any ocean run fish being caught yet in areas 8-2, 9 or 10?

I don't see much effort going on but there are a few boats out.

There were some boats pulling fish at the oil docks on Saturday. Not a ton of nets flying though. Pulled up a dogfish and enough seaweed to stock a sushi restaurant for weeks.

It was slow for me over the weekend. One shaker and some dogfish. Didn't see anyone keep a coho--fished both the east and west side of 10.

The fishing is still slow but the views can't be beat.

I went out looking for ocean coho in MA10 over the weekend, but didn't find any and went back to kings.  Fish checker said she'd seen a few, but the vast majority of the coho in the creel counts are still resident fish.  Have heard it's not great out in the Straits yet either.  Think we need some rain to get them moving.  Lots of fish in the ocean.

I'll be in MA7 starting tomorrow looking for coho, but those are primarily fish headed north instead of south.

Finding fish without extra fins seems to be the biggest challenge, in the last three days the ratio of unclipped has been 70%.

Same here.  This is exactly what happened to us 2 years ago.  Unclipped to clipped was roughly 4 or 5 to 1.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Headed out tomorrow on my buddy's boat tasked with getting his kid his first coho. I've not fished the area in a decade but generally know how to fish it. Don't need any spots just seeing if better or worse than the other over the last few days.

Shilshoe to Jeff Head or Edmonds to Oil Docs, Richmond Beach, Boeing Creek, Meadow Point?

Thanks!

 A buddy limited his boat today in Edmonds. 8 fish, all 50-60 feet trolling a Purple Haze squid with Purple Haze flasher. Good luck! :tup:

 11 is still slow, although we have been getting fish.

Thanks!  I'll be running one green, one purple, and one tbd setup. Might try rigging some hearing or the ol' cookies and cream spoon.

Last week my experience was that one rig would go hot and then stop.  Then I would put something different out and it would go hot while the previous hot rod would be dead.  Kind of strange, but it was like flipping a switch on and off.

I move between either a hoochie or the flashy skirt thing and small spoons.

If you are marking fish or in a bite, don't be afraid to switch the gear up.

Here is a good identification chart for those miss clipped fish. Might be kicking back more hatchery fish than we know…

In this family we aim for the game, we wear camo, we respect our rifles, we pray before meals, we lock and load and we never miss

A lot of hatchery Coho didn’t get clipped at all back during the height of the Covid scare; now the fish are returning.  Not much we can do about that.
