Today we started out with some halibut fishing and since I had family up we were not regulated by the 37″ rule so we caught a 75 pounder, 45 pounder, and a few at about 35 pounds.
King salmon fishing was as good as previous days but we did get our 12 kings by about 11 am which time wise was better than the past few days.
Largest kings of the day were 33 pounds by Dennis Caldwell and a 30 pounder by Frank Haydu.
We decided to go to the north end of Noyes island for our fishing day which when we showed up there were kings jumping out of the water but had a bit of a time hooking them until I had us switch to the downriggers from mooching and we landed a king immediately and lost one. Then soon after they started biting on cut plug herring so we switched and in the end landed 9 kings keeping 5. We then went for our halibut, bottom and rock fish.
June 3rd started out with a king on the first drift, landing 2 and loosing one in the first hour of the day. From our first stop we went on west to our next stop which we landed a nice 22 lb king on the first drop, landing a total of 2 on the first drift and finishing up with 5 kings landed and 2 lost by 9:30 am. Then we went looking for halibut under 37″ and kept catching kings and having to release them having a tripple header on at the last and having to release them. After landing our halibut we went on to finish up on Yellow eye, black sea bass and some Rough eye.
Day was sunny with 5 mph winds and 4 ft. swell coming out of the SW.
