June 18th started out at Pinnapple rock quite slow and after a few hours only landing 1 king and letting go a nice 35 pound halibut that was over sized…hate that. We decided to head to our spot we have been fishing the last few days so in doing we landed the rest of our kings which was 6 more for a total of 7. We landed an 8th letting it go. We also lost an additional 3 kings for the day as well, including one silver. Most boats had a slower day than we have been experiencing the past few weeks.
After that we got another halibut in excess of 37″ about 45 pounds so sent him off to the deep.
Such ended our wonderful day of fishing.
June 12th started out with halibut in mind as we wanted to find some more respectable sized flat ones but kept running into undersized ones eventually finding a acceptable size based on the new “37” rule. From haliut fishing we moved on to salmon fishing about 10 am after having a sea lion show on the rocks. We caught our first salmon about 10:30 and soon after about 50 “Orca” or Killer whales showed up and spoiled the fishing but gave us a great whale show.
From there we moved on to our now favorite spot landing 6 more kings and hooking an additional 3 or 4.
Day ended good with some sight seeing around Archada rock.
I am going to attach a video of some of our salmon today and hope it works for you.

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.
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.
