We left the dock this morning at 5am with great fishing conditions. We fished north in 120-140 feet of water. Our best setup was blue and chrome flasher with a aqua fly on 300 feet of copper line behind a Ziggy planer board. Also a meat rig on our deepest rigger worked well at 100-110 feet down. We ended our trip with 12 king salmon and 3 rainbow trout.
Due to bad weather Saturday morning, the Coho Derby Super Derby was postponed until Sunday morning. The High Roller fishing team took 5th place overall in the Super Derby, 2nd place in the Brown Trout category, 2nd place in Coho salmon category, and 4th place Chinook (King) salmon category. A big "Thank You" to The Wharf for holding this event again and for all their hard work!!!
