Finally got RG into her first king. A 37# chinook. Big feisty buck that took an hour to get in the boat. Have been catching tons of fresh silvers and kings. Not really worried about steelhead for now. Too busy having fun with the monster fish on a few of the rivers I religiously fish. All mint bright fish, some with very little color. Heck, had one king snap off my 30# line!!!!!!! Big buck, only got to see him for a bit. Isn't life great?!

What can I say??...It was very slow to say the least.

Last year at this time I had a decent day out there that would have been much more productive had the wind and swells not been so bad.

This time around, the fish were much deaper.

I hit the primary rip first thing in the morning and hit a fish on my second cast but it was a small shaker. The primary rip that forms at the entrance of Clallam Bay is very fishy but I could pull nothing more out of it then that shaker.

I then headed for the pod of boats in the shipping lanes (600 ft of water) north of Slip Point. Within a couple casts, I hit a very nice fish of about 8 pounds within 10 feet or so of the surface. I thought it was going to be a good day...

It was not to be as I would not touch another fish aside from a couple shakers.

It was very pleasent out as the water was calm and so was the wind...the fog rolled in thick and I thank God for my trusty compass.

If you can trust your navigation skills, there is something very surreal and soothing about casting out of a small boat, surrounded by fog with no other boats to be seen except for the whine of boat motors...especially when you are out in the middle of open water.

On a postive note, I gave Rio's Deep 7 full sink line a try. I was very impressed and have a Deep 10 on order.

The Deep 7 sinks about 7-8 ips (in freshwater) and I can say it does get down and down fast. What impressed me most about the line was how easily it cast...I obviously expected a very herky jerky chuck n duck style casting but this line threw more like a floating line then a sinking line.

It was very easy to chuck all 100 feet of the line with a Sea Habit Bucktail...I would make my cast up current and after about 45-60 seconds the line was down about 30 feet (I believe...I am very curious to see just how deep the line sinks and how quickly and what depth it fishes)...the Deep 10 (which can easily be thrown a 8 weight) should be perfect!! To say the least I was very very very impressed!!
