It was a Big Tuesday and a great May start for Salmon Fishing.  Two boats from the marina went out in the AM and had a great moring.  JD Charters went 17 for 21(mostly kings and some nice size - see photo) in 145 -170 FOW. Mostly spoons in yellow or green and they said they caught fish on all equipment but most on riggers at 75-90 down.
"Lean Machine" also was out in the morning and returned early with their limit. They fished a little shallower, so it sounds like the fish are everywhere, between 100-200.

Capt. Jim made it out for the first day of the season on Tuesday evening and went 12 for 16 in 150 to 200 FOW. All salmon (5-14 lbs.)on flies and spoons 60 to 100 feet down. Fish were hitting everything we threw at them with no special pattern or rig working best (but we did fish allot of white, blue and green). Took fish on copper, lead, downriggers and wire dipseys, braid dipseys were the only rods that did not have any action. Capt. Jim

I can't wait any longer! Hopefully the Rhino will launch tomorrow...
