    Just got home. Got a limit. Lines in at noon lines out at 3:30. First hit came at 1 on a 300 copper with a green blk latter back jplug nice 12 pound steelhead. Then a double at 230 with the 300 copper firing again and the mag slide diver with a meat rig set 150 back. Reset and the dipsy took a hit again but no one home. About 3pm the rigger set 80 down fires with a flasher fly. Then at 315 all hell breaks loose and get a triple on. All three rods. I just grabbed the first rod got it in threw it in the box. Put boat in neutral and reeled the other two in and making sure they swam away fine. I was in 120fow to about 135ft north troll was by far best. The kings were cookie cutter around 10 pounds. Seen some big ones on the board and alot of people had fish. Goodluck all hope this report helps some.

    0-1. My sister knocked a 20+ lb king off with the net. Just can't win the last two nights.

    My daughter and I ended up with just the steelhead. It was a bit bumpy out there for her, so I went in early. We lost 3 other fish which I think were kings. Marked a lot of bait balls too,, 120-130 fow. Boats were in the channel jigging as well. Lots of boats out tonite, and the parking lot was a mess. People were parking at all different angles and anywhere!

    Went 3/3 tonight..Got a 3# coho, an 18# king and a 34.2# king! ...new record for me and the boat. DNR agent was there tonight with his own verified scale which read 1.0# heavier than the one in the cleaning station. Was about 41" Big one came in about 180 FOW on a mag dispsey back 175 with a dark green spin doctor and blue fly. The medium one was same area on a rigger down 92 with a uv nbk spoon.
