This year has been tough for me - every weekend either threatening rain, too windy or some other commitment. I promised myself I was getting out a lot. So here it is July 27th and I've been out 4X so far this year including Seneca & Canandaigua derbies. Family is visiting this weekend but kings are silver and hungry and, damn it, I'm going. Got the boat out of the barn Thursday night & topped off the batteries and checked air in the tires. Got it out Saturday morning and 1 trailer tire flat, WTF. Jack it up, blow it up and no visible leaks. Go gas up boat & truck, come back home and tire is holding air. Get a phone call asking for a favor so I help them out. My lab and I get to Hughes promptly at 10:30 and luckily someone is just leaving so I get a prime (maybe the only) parking spot left. One of the two gentleman on that boat helped me launch - thank you very much - and at 11:00 I had my first hit on my second rigger down at 95' out, a mid teen king on a black spoon, half hour later I got a skippy on a cheater and the dipsy at 230' fired but it got off. Fished till 3:15 getting a pair of hits and drops every time I changed lures. Fussing with the dog when 1 rigger fires and I have a bulldog on the 85' rigger, fighting him for a few minutes when the other rigger intercepted a missile, I stayed with the first one, got him netted and dropped in cooler, then on to number 2 who was way back and reasonably docile by then, first attempt with the net and I got a hook barb in net, luckily I got under him quickly and pulled him in. Was able to revive and release him. Me, I'm soaked in sweat with a shyt eating grin on my face. Made it home by 5:15 for dinner with the family - GREAT SOLO TRIP.

    • Nice day (Hughes)

      I talked Admiral Byrd into giving it a shot this morning and  it turned out to be a beautiful and productive day. We motored out to the 5 hundreds to start as neither of us are into "zombie fishing" and marked a bunch of fish, and continued out to 725 ft. somewhere along the line my 300 copper took a shot and sunk the board after a nice fight we had  34 inch 14 lb male steelhead in the boat...he was spent and bleeding badly so we boxed him. As we headed in from the 700's we got into another stee

    • The green hornet finally strikes

      Had the afternoon free yesterday and decided to head out off the mouth of the SR minus a starter motor on my boat.  All went well 7 miles offshore and went 2 for 3 on majors.  Both fish landed took the green hornet mag spoon and the miss came on the dipsey out 230’ with a ff.  All the action happened at 85’ over 110-120 fow.  First salmon to hit the deck of the Green Hornet and my friend Dan and I were pretty excited about it.  Thanks everyone for all the tips throughout the season.  Now off to

    • Finally caught a coho

      Fished Oswego Saturday afternoon, 100 to 220 feet of water. Ended up with 2 kings and a coho. They seem to be hard to come by this year. All 3 fish came on 11 inch, green dalmation pro trolls with bait. Can’t buy a fish on a flasher fly. Eggs seem to be real tight, might last a little longer this year.

    • Hughes 8-20-19

      First of all comes the confession: I am a "Chinookaholic" and I  have had my addiction since 1975  Admiral Byrd and I sensed the narrow weather window yesterday and figured it was "now or never" and we hadn't fished together for kings this year yet so off we went on the water at 6AM in Bob's boat. We are a lot like the "odd couple" when fishing with me preferring the mid depth water and he the real deep water. We started in about 170 and worked our way north to the 307 ft range and picked up som
