July Starts Hot

Deckhand Bo Bruener looks on from aboard the Kestrel

The weather wasn’t hot for the first day of July – a bit of cool rain came with an east wind that smoothed out the ocean. We found kings again on the inside waters with limits for the Dan Brock party by 6:10 AM and the Jim Waldo party by 7 AM. The ocean also came alive with kings as the morning progressed with the Glen Foster party and the Willard party limiting on kings by mid-morning. Halibut limits followed for all and the Waldo party enjoyed fishing with circle hooks for salmon in late morning managing some fun catch and release of kings along with 8 nice silvers. The amount of baitfish in most of our favored spots is enormous and the salmon numbers appeared to be building yesterday. The kings also appear to be getting a bit larger with a couple fish over 30 pounds brought to the boat yesterday. We should be seeing silver numbers build on a daily basis as we progress deeper into July.
