Well , invited Dbfish out but previous plans took precedent so out for a fix I went. Later start then usual, after 9 , quite cool and comfortable , north wind for a change so off Darlington I went. Tried a size 15 pink flatfish with echip on the wire dipsy and had a flasher fly on the downrigger.

First pass going west no luck , heading east , 42 feet of water , in front of the lighthouse , the dipsy goes nuts.

Good fight , couple of stumbles on the net job , had to turn west again with the waves and managed a 25 +. Was able to revive the fish at side of boat.

Might have been a little heavier as I'm not sure tail made it off the floor of the boat.

A smaller 15 pounder hit shortly thereafter going east in similar depth, same lure and rod. Easier to net this one as I had pulled the downrigger up to change lures.

Changed to a blue green flatfish with echip on the rigger , down 30 ft , within 2 minutes going east again this one jumped aboard and decided to have a rest on the rear seat of the boat.

Lost one after that and decided to save energy for the next trip . My dad's buddies enjoyed the salmon he brought back a couple of weeks ago so this silvery 16 pounder did a little dividing in the cooler. 3 pieces for him , head and tail for some nurses to make soup at work.

Wasn't a crappie day Dale , wish you could have joined me!!

Nice catch! Goes to show that the salmon donít all do the same thing at the same time . Those look much darker then the ones we got today .
