This report is for both days of the coho derby.
We had lines in the water on the east side of possesion by first light, two on downriggers and one long line off the back.
20 minutes in and fish on, ten seconds later fish off. Over the next three hours we threw everything we had at them with only shakers to show for it.
We headed over to area 10 off the oil docks and I thinks thats where most were fishing as it was a complete zoo. After about 2 hrs we had enough of shaker fishing and headed back to possession. When we got there, we could see maybe 8 boats, not a good sign.
At 3pm we called it a day, sun was out and it was hot.
Sunday forecast was calling for rain and wind, pretty sure that cut down the numbers as we did not see the usual fleet.
Started again at possession at first light.
About an hour in we hook into a good one but lose it about ten ft from boat, weed and wind were picking up so we headed over to fish between edmonds and shipwreck. Water was calmer and we missed a couple of good take downs. More shakers then we get another possible keeper only to have it shake the hook when it broke the surface. Yet more shakers and a 5lb blackmouth (released at the net) and we called it a day at 1.30.

Looks like a 2nd or 3rd place fish from Saturday was dq'd as it is no longer listed on the leaderboard.
