We have been getting Chinook in quite a few different spots this last week including Inside South, Outside South Bank, Lighthouse Bank, Long Beach Bank and Great Bear. The fish seem to be moving around quite a bit and spots often change from day to day. We are mostly trolling the bottom with spoons and hutchies and getting both salmon and halibut in the same spots. Chinook are ranging from 10-20 lbs and seem to bite in spurts often coming in two at a time. Halibut have mostly been in the 12-40lb range while coming on the troll.

We expect great things to continue for 2011 in the area of large Chinook (King) salmon. This year is going to see many 4-5 year salmon returning and we are excited. 4-5 year salmon often mean that you are getting more salmon in the 25-45lb range. This always makes the anticipation great! Halibut limits have been set to the same as last year at 1 per day and 2 as your carrying limit.
