First trip of the year for me on my boat - I fished with Anthony (Pike Hunter Saturday) on his boat. I fished solo today and I fished a scum line between the muddy water and green pea-soup water in front of the bay. My first fish of the year was a nice king - likely mid teens fish on the wire diver, Live Wire SD/Hammer fly. Fish liked shiny chrome stuff when the sun came up. It is the only time I've ever had a wire diver hit on my shake-down voyage. Coho hit on a Dave's Salmon slapper SS and a Carmel Dolphin standard DW spoon.

Good luck to all - I think this is going to be a stellar year,

- Chris

I was out Sunday with my wife and son. We were almost to Webster Park in 10' and bang the kid hooks up with a screamer. It took a chartreuse J-11. The fish headed North at high speed. The leader snapped when the spool knot hit. So another J-11 done. I guess I need some bigger spools. Whats another $200 right?

Thanks again guys - let's hope it's a sign of good things to come this year.

Good luck fellas,
