We were there a couple weeks ago just fishing along the rocks with wife and kids and a few different guys on the boats said there were salmon up to 30 pounds in the harbor at that time.  I only had my rockfish stuff with me so I didn't really have any way to try to catch them. I was trying to cut back on the usual truck load of tackle I usually bring and don't need. One day I don't need it I actually needed it. Got alot of rock crabs out of the harbor though.

Any tips on what is the best way to go after the Salmon? I don't have alot of salmon fishing experience as I am from north Idaho. We has blue back (kokanee) in some of the lakes but other than that I never fished for Salmon before.

Theres a tackle shop in the harbor; ask the lady (i forgot her name) for the spinners that "Mike Souza" makes.... Theyre the ones you wanna cast....

Lots of salmon in the harbor right now!

Trick would be getting them to bite. I've been wondering about trying some brackish water tactics. Silvertron spinners maybe or quick fish?

Something that will piss me off and make them bite but I don't know much about freshwater salmon.

Where did you get the reports for salmon inside pph?
Thanks
John


I saw a sea lion tearing one up about a week ago and heard reports on coast side this week of shore anglers catching fish. This is normally the time of years they come in thanks to the coast side net pen project.

Good luck out there!

Swimbait or cast master. That will get you a halibut or striper
Got a 22 incher on a swimmer in the harbor off the jetty. Fine bait find fish. You could also soak bait for sharks and rays. Try topwater on the flats in the low light am or pm

Nice stiper... I tried this Sunday for a few hours but it is hard to do any serious fishing with my four and seven year old boys along with me. I let the older one ride in the back with me but he becomes very impatient very quickly so it is more like just a kayak ride then any kind of serious fishing.  I hope to try again this weekend on my own for awhile. I will try some cast masters for a halibut or maybe a striper if I get to go. Did you get that striper last weekend?

Nah i think around two weeks. Also look for current seams/swirls behind the end of jettys when the tide is ripping. (Ambush points)
