Blackmouth Reports From The Opener
The reports that we had from yesterdays blackmouth opener were quite lackluster to say the least. Most everyone we spoke with had to deal with quite a number of shakers. No matter what type of gear that was put out, it was plauged by undersized fish. Even those fishing plugs still had sub legal problems. Here's a little rundown on the WDFW checks from the opener.
Edmonds Area 9 9 Boats with 15 Anglers 7 Chinook .47 Fish/Angler
Everett Area 8-2 13 Boats with 26 Anglers 1 Chinook .04 Fish/Angler
Everett Area 9 29 Boats with 55 Anglers 19 Chinook ,035 Fish/Angler
Kingston Area 9 13 Boats with 26 Anglers 2 Chinook ,08 Fish/Angler
Kingston Area 10 7 Boats with 17 Anglers 1 Chinook .06 Fish/Angler
Pt Townsend Area 9 10 Boats with 17 Anglers 10 Chinook .59 Fish/Angler
Shilshole Area 9 4 Boats with 7 Anglers 3 Chinook .43 Fish/Angler
Shilshole Area 10 3 Boats with 4 Anglers 0 Chinook
So as you can see the fishing was far from fantastic. Perhaps no one really found any concentration of fish so it was hit and miss.
Weather kept most all but the hardcore in today and the outllook looks a little marginal for the next few days! After all it is November.
