Been getting out of Charleston for rock fish. Six miles down the coast for limits on lings and blacks. Got some really big black rocks last trip. Hope it keeps up. Heard of some salmon being caught off-shore too.
So many fish, so little time. Tuna and inshore halibut just around the corner.

Am new to sing in the San Juans but have entered a salmon derby in Roche Harbor Jan 21-23. Any suggestions on Chinook hotspots that I could enter as waypoints?

Checkout Salmon University. Lots of charts and general location information plus how to rig tackle.

I am in Port Angles, been fishing the area since 1977. Most old timers like me will not give out GPS numbers, but the common fishing areas are well known and it is easy to find general directions.

Fish the right tackle (mooching or jigging or down rigger trolling) properly, in the right area, at the correct tides and currents, and you will catch fish.

Really, really read the WA regs in detail. Many areas are closed now. And just about every area has special gear restrictions.

If fishing near the US/Canada bounday, pay attention to where you are. Drifting across the boundary while not paying attention will result in a boarding party by the B.C. fish cops.

Im new to the forum, joined in June or somewhere back there. Haven't spent a lot of time on here until recently, as I needed answers on equipment I'm looking at for my new boat.
I'm in Salem Oregon, and home is port Newport OR,
Currently building a new 28' Great Alaskan offshore, started in June of 2015, plan to launch June of 2017. Sold my Last boat in late August to finish this boat. I have worked away at it steadily until this month,it has been just too cold to work with epoxy so I have been designing another boat for the future in my spare time.

You will find more local info over on ifish where you have been posting the Alaskan boat build. Bloody decks is not bad if you can put up with the smack talk and BS.

Trolling, mooching, jigging, down riggers, salmon, halibut, rock fish, ling, what is your style? I have been doing all since 1975 here in the NW.

Been gone a long time. Now I finally got my log in fixed. I fish the West coast of Vancouver Island when I'm serious about getting nice Salmon and Halibuts. Have a Canadian license and fish there mostly. Better chance of catching larger fish and longer season. Been cruising further and further up into Canada also. Too bad you can't download pictures into this site like others without using a URL. Our boat is a LWL 30ft Norstar 301 powered by a pair of Yanmar 315HP diesels.

Not sure when this vote was taken. We have lots of boaters up this way. I bought my 1976 Fiberform 26 ft Command Bridge almost two years ago. Ford 351 Windsor (NEW) and a new out-drive. I am moored in Warrenton Marina and have had it out a lot and have caught some nice salmon, Sturgeon, and lots of Dungeness Crab. Lets get a forum going for the Pacific North West and chat with each other. Cmon,
