Chinook Salmon to 14 lbs GREAT Slack Mid Morning 140 to 160
Not Targeted: Chum Salmon, Coho Salmon, Lingcod, Pink Salmon, Rockfish, Sockeye Salmon
Thrasher Rock is producing some very nice catches of Chinook salmon. Try the T-Rex hoochie, or Silver Blue spoon at 140 feet in 160 feet of water. The fish are running 8 to 14 pounds, and are very red fleshed.
Prawning is excellent off the Flat tops. Try tuna cat food fished on the 350 foot contour, and expect 100 per trap.
Good fishing!
