Anyone going?  Huge tides Wed, Thurs and Friday.  Following week looks perfect though!

my guess is that there a plenty of fish that the tides won't matter much but I will probably start at the clay banks.

Right on, I love the optimism.  Was thinking about running over to Vashon side

Was really hoping for an opening this sat, leave for Italy on the 5th.  Last year was epic for us, have never caught more black mouth ever, and my biggest.  We had 3 of us, limits for kings, silvers and even caught a legal size ling cod trolling!  Had to steal my 18 lb king back from a seal that tried to steal it, it was an epic battle for about 20 minutes.  I’ll never forget that day!

I did and it was slow.  Released a 13-14ish native, and lost a bigger one at the boat.

That's not terrible.  I'm hoping wind won't be too bad tomorrow, we are heading out around 3pm

Caught fish at the point yesterday and today before and after the tide change and released a couple wilds but had to put in a some time. They're out there and pretty decent size too.

Spent a few hours out yesterday morning.
3 decent with extra fins had to go back and lost one to a seal that I ended up chasing to shore with the boat and somehow got all my gear back.

That's a story I'd love to hear sometime.  We did terrible Friday evening, wind picked up and was tough sledding.  The wife saw the Orcas though so that made up for it.
