"Reel" Estate Fishing Report for Blackmouth Salmon by Mike Bredeson

Wow, what a start to the 2013 Salmon season which runs December 1, 2012 to April 30, 2013. Several of our clients and friends have had a fruitful start with days in the double digits for landed fish. The current hot locations are Tide Pt, Pt Lawrence and Obstruction Pass. It seems like at the beginning of the season the fish are concentrated in the southern part of Marine Area 7 north.
The Johnson Team 2902 Trophy has managed to make a couple trips to Alden Bank, just outside Sandy Point with some success. In 3 trips out with 7 hrs total fishing we have brought back 4 salmon with an average of a takedown every ½ hr. With the limited time on the water we have just stuck with flashers and spoons. As the middle of February approaches the bait will switch to small anchovies and herring.
If you need a current report give us a call – 360-303-2734 or if you have photos to share email them to info@johnsonteamrealestate.com and we will get them up on the blog.  Happy Fishing!
