my saltwater experince this year so far
this has been a pretty slow saltwater year for me. maybe because the last few years have been so good my fishing karma is making me suffer. wether it be problems with my motor or killer whales running the fish off or commercial boats where i don't want them, it seems if it can go wrong for me this year it has.
i guess though i shouldn't be complaining i have landed a few fish this year. some average sized springs on my annual west coast trip and a few pinks and some lingcod locally, but its just not like the past few years. maybe i'm spoiled but how can i not be fishing in an area like the one surrounding me.
like take for instance the other night, me and my best fishing buddy, ( my dad ) went for a quick run after work when we got where we were going and set are gear down, ther were pink salmon jumping all around us and in previous years the after work bite has always been good to us, but with in fifteen minutes of fishing two sain boats showed up and then a whole pod of killer whales. we didn't have a chance competing with either of them so we just sat back and watched the show.
hopefully your year is going better than mine.
