We got out a couple times this week, last Thursday and Friday. On Thursday we had a tough time finding the fish but did manage to scrape up a 14 pound Chinook and lost another that would have been a similar size. On Friday we landed on the fish and stayed with them until we had our 6 fish limit. All went between 7 and 9 pounds. A first ever for me was hauling up a large Octopus which hugged my downrigger weight all the way to the surface. I manged to net him just as he let go. Octopus leg chunks make for excellent halibut bait. Here is a picture from the Friday outing. Joshua is from New Orleans and Jennifer is from Portland, Oregon.
