We had a lot of fun last night and were able to pull up to the dock at the end of the night with our head held high.  Efren, Leo, and I fished from 6 to 9:45 pm.  I had been trying to get my friends from Mexico into a few salmon, but we didn't have much luck the last couple of times out.  Well, the fish were biting again, and biting on everything that we threw out on the line.  We ended the night 6 for 9 with bites on 7 different set-ups.  Downriggers at 40 and 45 down got 3 hits, 2 of which were on a flasher/fly meat rig.  A 4 color lead line with an orange and gold spoon got one.  Both 10 and 12 color lead lines with spoons also took hits - 2 of which were on a small ladder back Pro King spoon with black and green sides.  Dipsies and Flies also had 2 or 3 hits.  Both a magnum wonder bread and a silver wonder-bread got hits.

Our luck came in 130 FOW and we we circled and did figure-eights through the same spot all night, picking up a fish each time through.  Of the 6 fish we landed, 5 were good size kings and 1 was an 8 lb steelhead.  One of the Kings weighed 22.4 lbs on the scale! This was the biggest fish my boat has seen in a few years! 2 Other Kings were over 10 lbs. We lost another 10+ pounder right behind the boat as it crossed up with our dipsy as it made a last second run.

So much fun!
