David wanted to get out for a few hours. The weather was un-seasonably warm setting a record at 61 degrees. We have a pineapple express from Hawaii bringing the warmer and wet skys.
The day before Thanksgiving brought a break in the rain and it’d be nice to get back on the water to chase some blackmouth while we soaked pots.
We dropped pots at ship wreck in 80-90′ of water and then made our way to Kingston to troll for some winter blackmouth. While the north Puget Sound is closed for fishing Area 10 remains open. However, there appears to be as many sub legal sized fish around that it’s probably good idea to let them grow.
The run wasn’t too far from Edmonds and fun to filter through the shakers and 20-21″ fish. It was pretty non stop action fishing the outer bar and inside the horseshoe.
Best lures were the coho killer in the orange, green and white glow color and red racer flasher fished off the bottom.
David pulled his son Charlie out early from school to fish the afternoon tide change. Low was at 13:38 and Charlie loves to be on the water. We picked up 6 keeper crab for a 3 hour soak along with a 23″ blackmouth.
Back at the dock we passed by the Edmonds pier and it was already packed with squid fishermen. Charlie and I decided to walk over and give it a try and we did very well.
15 minutes of jigging yield about 4# of good sized squid. A puget sound trifecta! We have alot to be thankful for, don’t we?
