Westport was a rough a rainy place this past weekend but the good news was the kings were biting. Action on chinook to 25lbs was straight out from the harbor mouth to slightly NW in 280-300ft of water. That’s about 20 miles. Saturday we caught and released 12 chinook and kept a coho. Coho fishing was a little sporadic in the deep water if you ran into a school you did well. The kings were deep, we were fishing 230 ft on the Scotty Downriggers, you would see bait of fish on the Lowrance Sonar unit then adjust your rigger accordingly. Top producer was again a Pro-Troll Hot Chip Flasher with 40 inches of 50lb Seaguar Fluorocarbon leader to a Silver Horde Kingfisher Lite Spoon. The spoon is coated liberally with Pro-Cure Bloody Tuna Jell scent.
