Wow! We have been playing around offshore – out past 200 foot of water for over a week. I knew it would not keep going forever; but, our catch of beautiful Coho (Silver) Salmon and Steelhead (Ocean Run Rainbow Trout) was worth it. On Sunday the Salmon and Steelhead bite finally dried up offshore and we decided that we better head in where the Lake Trout are biting. Fortunately, on the way into shallower water this big King (Chinook) Salmon took a line running (yeah I know they only swim) for over three hundred feet. He peeled line off the reel like it was hooked in the prop. I was nearly convinced that we had foul hooked a King Salmon in the tail. He finally stopped running and our customer was able to reel in some line. Fifteen minutes later we landed this Big Monster – Hoping it was a Thirty Pounder – it weighed in at a respectable 28 pounds. Really nice Big King Salmon for an early July fish. This really Big King Salmon made the day for our Customers – R^2.
Hope to see you onboard for some great Charter Fishing Adventures.
