Merrill Lynch and associates rented the boat out for a full day combo. The group decided they wanted fast action fishing, so I took them all to a spot with a fast bite to keep everyone busy. We dropped anchor in 220′ of water right over a school of bait I saw on the sounder. We had fish on all over the boat and landed 48 halibut in less than two hours. By 12pm we were already on our way back the salmon grounds. I went back to the same spot we had fished yesterday and decided that dropping the anchor would be the best way to get the salmon into the boat. It was by far the best day of silver fishing that I have seen in three years. Every fish that was reeled in had three silvers chasing it to the surface. At times we had six silvers on at once. Miles came running towards the fish box with six fish in his net. I’m not sure how he netted all six fish at once but we had no time for questions. It was unfortunate that it didn’t rain during salmon fishing because it sure would of been nice to have a little down poor to keep the boat wet. The guys all wanted action and that’s exactly what they got. It sure is nice when things work out to plan.
We have another exclusive trip tomorrow and it looks like the weather is clearing up for the rest of the week. Look forward to fishing with you guys next year. Miles and I had a great time! FISH ON!!!
