I want you all to know that as I do these fishing updates every week, I try to be as honest and as accurate as I can.
The Silver salmon are again slow this week. I think this week was slower than last week. The reports are that they are holding out in the open ocean and due to water temperature they are not moving into Cross Sound yet.
Halibut was a bit slower this week also. The biggest one weighed in at 201 lbs. We had a 139 lb and several around 100 lbs. Again this week we heard stories of something grabbing the line and running so hard and fast the line was breaking. Always check your drag and make sure the line is loose enough for the fish to pull it out.
Weather was good this week, we did have several mornings of fog that made it tough to navigate. But the water was calm most days and we did not have to much rain.
On the whale watching tour Saturday morning we had an amazing experience. We were just about to the light house when the Captain spotted some Orcas so we stopped and spent some time with them, then we saw some Humpback whales bubble feeding, it was amazing. It was the perfect ending to a great week of fishing.
