Fished at Ambleside at 2:00pm with Dogbreath. We were looking for pinks and maybe a coho but nothing jumping so moved to Bell Bouy about 3:30. A guy on another boat lost a good fish close to the Bouy. We hooked up a jack while realling in the deep six line... problably in 20' of water on a green hoochie. About an hour after tide change of the last marker from Spanish Bank we picked up one in the high teens on the planner about 30' with the green hoochie and silver, purple, green and blue flasher. Lost it by the boat... again :wallbash:. Got the line in the water again and in five minutes had another hit a 35' on the downrigger, popped off the clip and was on for a minute but no good hook set, it came off - probalby a smaller one. Quite a about 6ish.

Have fun, Jason

I made it out yesterday afternoon and stayed until sunset. We went home with 4 clipped Coho...all 3/4 lbs. Lost 2 others. Still Coho to be found out there. Many other boats out yesterday didn't fare so well. The mornings have been better....

If you only count the catching part, the planner - a #1 pink Deep Six - does really well. Its the twelve foot leader on a ten foot mooching rod in a fifteen foot boat that causes the problems. In fact when fishing the Bell Bouy area it picks up the fish 2 to 1 compared to the down rigger. However, I would rather have a second down rigger.
Have fun, Jason
