Chinook fishing has been consistently good on the Shallows at Big Bank and we seem to getting some nice average size Chinook there the past few days. The size average is down this year compared to most, however we are catching lots of Chinook in the 15-20 range with a few around 25. The Lighthouse Bank is also producing with some nice average Chinook being taken there the past few days as well. Halibut seems to be plentiful on Big Bank and we are getting them bottom bouncing as well as trolling. Glow hutchies and coyote spoons seem to be the best for both. Coho haven’t been here in large numbers, however since we are getting them on smaller lures instead of the usual Tomic plugs and spoons, it is nice to be able to focus on Chinook. Coho are still around Chrowe Island and they are out on South Bank, Lighthouse Bank and Big Bank. You will have to pick though them to get the hatchery fish.
