Well, I think we had one hit. Snagged the ground once and some mysterious cannonball bouncing, but no fish. Saw one guy play a good one for a while, don't think they landed it. Nice flat water, nice day out there despite the rain.

Try again another time.

I picked up a 12lb spring in front of the Ambleside pier with a white glow hootchie 70' down in 90' of water, running against the tide. It was too much of a gong show near the Cap that I wasn't sure how I'd even land one if I got one, so I left the crowd and got a bit lucky.

Very early I went to the T10 area, but gave up after spending 95% of my time clearing my lines of weeds and debris. Caught one shaker there, and didn't see anyone else landing anything.

I was out off West Van..and I heard the friendly jab about me having caught all the fish...LOL...very funny Brisco...

The bite was definitely off today... I managed 1 beaut of a Coho all day....but that was all. Too much time spent clearing lines of weed.

The pessimist in me tells me we may very well be done for....however I do expect more fish to show up...hopefully soon. Daylight in the evenings is now disappearing fast. Don't get caught as the last boat on the water or alone when darkness is falling.

Friendly advice..if you're the last one at a spot..leave when the other boat does...to minimize the risk of being left in the dark with mechanical problems.

Fish when you can.....the season is almost done.

Hey Fishing Magician....the season is never done....once the migratories are finished the winter feeders come in....i actually find that to be the most consistent fishery going...i tub a couple just about every trip....and the nice thing is....no gong show at ambleside....dress warm and give it a crack...oh yeah and those fish are so hungry they hit anything...i use nothing but spoons in the winter....no bait to buy,brine or change...giddy yup

True enough. However, a run for winters is an expensive venture for a couple of long trolled 8 lb legals...and November, December, January are relatively quiet months. I've done more winter fishing than a lot of people and I'd much rather fill up my card with mature Cohos and large Chinook!

But you're right...it is consistent and truly...the fishing never does end.

See you on the water tsweet...
