Angling Unlimited had a first on May 30. Captain David Gross, fishing with Carl Hauser, Jeff Hauser, Dave Goshorn, and Ed Barnes got into a wide open king bite yesterday afternoon. After hooking and landing some nice kings they were greeted by a site we’ve never scene at AU – a pod of killer whales arrived and ate the salmon right off their lines – right next to the boat. In my last blog I hoped for killer whales to come eat a few of the sea lions that have been bugging us. It appears the pod that arrived prefers salmon to sea lion for dinner.
Another unusual mammal siting came for Maggie and Tom George, Jim and Anne Smith fishing with yours truly, Captain Tom. After hitting a short frantic king bite and getting their kings each for the day, we headed out a few miles for halibut. Shortly after we arrived, we were joined by a northern fur seal – floppy ears and all. The seal swam around the boat for 10 minutes allowing for lots of view and photos, then took off. We finished the day with our limit of halibut and, once on the inside waters, a sunny beautiful ride to the dock.
