salmon fishing in September

IMG_1180September 16, 2013– Still salmon fishing. Catching some nice one too! Went out with a light load today (had some no-shows). We started fishing just north of the bouy in about 80 ft of water off of Pudding Crk. Mike Sjoquist from Fort Bragg hooked up right away. He landed a nice 17 lb king! Mike was fishing at 35 feet on a downrigger. Nothing else happened for some time so I decided to pick up and run up where I had fish a couple of days ago just north of the reef. It looked good but no hungry fish. So, I trolled back down where we had our first fish and about the time we got back to just about the same spot “fish-On”. Christine Griggs from Willits landed one about 18 pounds. That gives everyone (all 2 of them) a fish. We trolled around there the rest of the trip with no more action. At the end, I told everybody to catch one bringing your gear in, and Christine hooked up a nice one. After a heck of a battle, Christine won. The fish measured out 43 inches long and weighed in at a nice 42 lbs!! Nice job Christine! Fish-On!
