July Coho
 
I've made two trips out into the Kitsap Peninsula, Area 9 beaches and have had a terrific time. Last Monday, the opener, using a pink #2 popper, I landed 5, lost 4 at the hand and had many many follows. This morning, in a blustery, rainy dawn, me and three friends landed a total of 5 coho and lost or missed a bunch in the two hours we fished before catching the ferry back to the shop. Todays coho were all unmarked and between 4 and 6 pounds. Man, do I love July coho who are driven to do nothing but eat!

I'll call about my upcoming business trip. :smokin:

The guys from the shop hit the beach yesterday morning and did well again. One of them put a nine pound blackmouth on the barbie last night!

COOL - I am curious... did the king take a Miyawaki popper?

Yep, the pink coho version. I went to another beach yesterday morning and hit on a bunch of coho, landing about 6 of them. They are up to 5-7 pounds now. I also landed three "racehorse" blackmouth that were really hot! I'm seeing if I can use this one fly all season. Too bad you're going to Neah/Sekiu and missing all the close-in action. Must be all that "green grass" over there!

Hmmm... Safeco night with my two favorite teams and a inside secret coho hunt with the popper meister sounding awfully good.

They may be in a little closer by then at Lincoln.
