I hope everyone is having a pleasant Holiday season, and ready for 2016!  Fishing in the Seattle area has been up and down with mid season closures in parts of Puget Sound.  We had some good fishing in October in the central part of the Sound, and hope for a possible opener in MA 9, January 16.  Winter crabbing was great when the weather cooperated.  We had a feast on Christmas Eve.  Looking forward to Steelhead fishing on the Olympic Peninsula rivers.  And further on to Spring Chinook.  Parts of the Greasy Spoon gang made it out for Tuna in late October.  We had amazing seas and a period of wide open fishing.  Happy New Year and tight lines!

Opening day for Chinook tomorrow!!  Many a soul will lose sleep tonight planning and scheming where to be????  My best advice is to fish deep!  Look for bait in the 120-240′ depths.  Fish on the bottom, 120-280′ on downriggers!! Plugs, spoons, hootchies have been producing well.  Take a peek at heavy afternoon incoming tides!!  Could be a massive bite on incoming in  afternoon in Point no Point and Pilot point areas !!

imageIt’s been a while since I’ve posted.  I promise to get back on track.  Lots of fishing has happened over the past few months.  Great people and great fish!  A brief glimpse of some of the pics.  We are looking forward to another exciting summer of chartering.  See you on the water !

A little catching up to do on posts!  It’s been a great season with Lings, Kings, Silvers and lots of wildlife.  Were still catching Kings, and silvers are just making a showing.  It’s been a lot of deep fishing with warmer waters in the Sound.

Lingcod fishing is underway now in Puget Sound.  Fishing is fun for these toothy, hard fighting and tasty fish.  Live bait such as Sand Dabs and Shiner perch tend to produce lots of bites.   Capt. Matt

A strange winter this year. Not enough water in January, then enough to float an ark in Feb. fishing has been fare lately on the Peninsula on most rivers. Little signs of spring over the past few days has Spring Chinook on my mind. LingCod opens May 1st and should provide a good fishery this year.

It’s been a interesting winter here in the Great NorthWest. Dry and mild temps have been conducive to outdoor activities. My fruit trees think its spring, and damn Peck Peck is starting to patrol his drumming stations. Fishing on the Olympic Peninsula has been good for Wild Steelhead. Hopefully we get some more rain soon to keep the rivers in fishing shape. Chinook (blackmouth) fishing has been fair to good in marine areas 9 and 10.
