Had a spectacular morning with my friend Steve out of Point Breeze today. We fished way offshore in 600 feet of water and found some nice mature king salmon. We boxed a limit of 6 for the 2 of us, and most of the fish came from 70 to 90 feet down on various baits. Everything caught the salmon that was on the 6 rod spread. Spoons on downriggers, spin doctors and flys on divers out 200 and 240, 400 ft copper with flasher and herring strip.

The ride was long out and back near the Canadian fence, but was a largely flat sea condition and the day was very comfortable. That was this past Saturday.

Things hadn't changed onTuesday, same program, same area off-shore, same set up, and had four 2 year olds, a nice steelhead a really good screamer on the 400 copper meat rig but lost it halfway up the copper, all jn the morning. Then it got pretty uncomfortable out there with the west southwest wind building and it took us an hour of pounding to get back to Port. Offshore remains good if you got the gas and the time to run, and a fish hawk is pretty useful out there as the down currents were crazy strong. You go like a snail one way, and turn, and run like a rabbit the other Way. Fish on!

We had the same experience on Tuesday out of Oak Orchard.  Went 3 or 4 on the kings straight out in 600 FOW and 4 Steelhead.  long ride back to the harbor at 11am due to the wind.  Similar depths...3 kings hit the same rod: diver down 190 with white flasher fly.  Other King hit a Green spoon on a rigger down around 100

Yeah, turns out he got salmon fever and reeled all the big ones in. I figured he could be part of the coffin box any time..the salmon won!

Nice job.  I need a bigger boat.  I have to fish inside water.
That day you could have been in a row boat! It was very calm on Saturday. Tuesday was not calm and even could have used a longer hull to run the waves quicker on the way back. I think most times with that close chop a full deep V more than 27 feet would be a bit better for speed. Mine is 22 on the running hull and it is a modified deep V. Its a good compromise for trolling speed stability, but suffers on running speed. I couldn't manage more than 17 mph without launching on the type of wave set that was there Tuesday. Very hard ride and not fast enough to plane all the way out. Just the opposite was Saturday and any boat would have had a nice time out there next to Canada.

What brand are those planer reel setups clamped to the rails?

Actually, those are a combination of downrigger arms and clamp on planer reels.

The reels themselves are Super Ski, and have had them for a couple decades.

The 2 foot arms are from Proos manual down riggers. The swivel heads work pretty nice. Keeps the line coming straight in and out.

I just used stainless hose clamps to secure the arms in place.

That could be arranged. The fish coffin on the other side could store a bean bag..I've seen the bikini bow cover on some boats that could keep him from getting fried!

Bean bag on the foredeck and your styling at nap time fo sure !
