Great news.

Suggestions:

We should make the dates Fri-Sun so the Sun closure will not prevent two days on the water for those who can get the day off.

Sun could be an optional ling/rock day or a summer run day on the area's rivers.

Topwater, and all who are taking a 'meister' role please post all related information and we will put up an information page / signup page.

- lodging as suggested by Chris = Cape Motel and RV

- boat rental info (if any)

- food plan (I can help here)

- volunteer provisions (wood, water, ice, camp coolers, lanterns, etc)

Sounds like the makings of a stellar annual event.

Here's another thought... (if we'd already discussed this I apologize in advance)

Is the risk of quota based closure too high in early September? In the dozen or so years I'd lived out there the Labor Day time frame was almost always the best for big hooknoses (probably 90%).

The reports would indicate that the fall salmon fishery could be as slow-starting as the spring runs and this would be 6 weeks verses 2 weeks to move things along. It seems slow right now, and the current dates would only be a couple of weeks out.

Also the adjacent steelhead fishing opportunities would be much better, not to mention dramatically reduced airfares.

Any opinions on this? Meanwhile I will go look through the previous posts to see if this has already been discussed.

Turns out these new dates, 8/6-7 puts me out of the loop. My mother is up from California and my kid and wife and friends are out from the east coast at that time.

Oh well,
Leland.

I think there is some flexibility. I am trying to get a general consensus with the poll thread... hope people put in their vote.

Getting ready.....

I voted for the Early August date. Probably right after Juro as there were only two votes. I just finished my pre season maintanece chores on my skiff and checked it out in the Harbor at PA all systems were go. I repacked the wheel bearings on the trailerand changed Hypoid oil in the outboard gear box (for you guys with jet sleds thats the fluid in the gear box just in front of the propeller ).
I checked out my saltflybox and I see I really do not need to tie up any new ones but I probably will anyway.

either of the August dates work for me. september is imo a poor choice due to a likely closure due to a smaller coho quota this summer.

That thing holds oil too? I thought it was just for breaking off to warn you that you'd gone too shallow...

Hi Chris,

Has the silver and/or pink action picked up out there? It was slow for us on salmon 5-8 July. My wife and I were the jokers in the blue-sided alumaweld (and an unpainted one in past years). We were fishing with Dick & Nate this most recent trip.

Some spotty reports that it is picking up out there.

the fishing is slowly picking up. the fish are smaller this year, although we did get an 11 pound hatchery fish on thursday.

it is fairly typical early july fishing, spotty. there are certainly more fish around now than when i was casting that popper at your boat (if i'm fishing rockfish, salmon is beyond slow)

offshore is spottier than i'd like to see. the mackerel are about two to three weeks early, and the number of coho feeding on the bait we saw was disappointing.

of course, there have certainly been years like this before. four years ago the coho fishing was terrible (with a few spurts) before the fish showed up in force in late july (like the 31st) and then the fishing was as good as it gets.

i know it's going to pick up, but it's tough fishing choice water with few fish. it feels fishy, but the fish aren't there.

chris

Had a friend pick up some big Coho late last week in big seas offshore. Also hooked into a few big Black Bass while fishing on top or close to top. They were all good size and fought better than the Coho. Anyone else picking up non target fish out there. With water temps warmer it won't be long before a Marlin or mahi mahi comes to the boat. Hows the bait situation?
