I’m giving this a 5, not for the number of fish but for the company and experience gained. Randy (rmrauscher) kindly volunteered to help my wife and me get first blood on the deck of our new boat. Up until now, we had been fishing Lake Washington , getting used to the boat and targeting cutthroat ( without much luck). We were anxious to get out in the salt but a bit hesitant since we hadn’t fished the sound from our own boat before. We met Randy at Shileshole at 0530 and trolled for an hour near Shilshole but nothing was happening so headed to Kingston, Apple Tree Cove, which was packed with boats. We trolled around the outside of the pack and with no takes decided to head to Jeff Head. Midway my rod pops off the dr and it’s fish on, a nice feisty hatchery chinook on a flasher and spoon at 80 feet on the dr in 120fow. About 10 mins later Randy’s rod starts bouncing and he lands a nice hatchery coho, 80 feet on the dr using a flasher and OG2.

Not only did we get the blood on the deck but we got on heck of a education from Randy and some great memories from our maiden trip on the salt. Thanks Randy!

I fished Kingston on Tues with my friend Terry. I got an 18 at 6:15 and an hour later Terry got a 12, both around tide change. We were on the outside edge of the bar in 100-110 FOW. Had things to do so I didn't go out the last two days but Terry and I are going tomorrow. Flasher, purple haze squid with an Ace Hi Fly under it and a 3" salted strip with Bloody Tuna scent. Surprised you didn't do well at Kingston but you may have missed the early tide change bite.

You are very welcome. It was a great day. Good times, great people, caught some fish and got the skunk scent off the new boat! Doesnt get any better than that. Definitely a 5 star day.
