Not for the faint of heart. Winter Blackmouth fishing can be a challenging and sometimes frustrating experience. The reward is one of the most energetic and exciting light gear fisheries there is. We fish winter Blackmouth in December and March. The weather during these times of year can be brutal. Fortunately we have a spacious cabin to come in from the cold.
Blackmouth are mostly hatchery kings that never really leave the sound. they just stick around and feed like crazy. These fish are not mature and getting ready to die like the returnees we get in the summer and fall. These fish are lively and energetic and a hoot to catch.
Halibut and Ling
We run these trips from LaPush and Neah Bay. The Northwest Olympic Peninsula has some of the most breathtaking scenery in the state. From the rainforest to Glacier fed lakes the scenery on land is awesome. When we leave port we pass some incredible rock formations. There is essentially no bar crossing in either place so once we get around the rocks were in the ocean. It is a regular occurrence to see several types of Wales, porpoise and dolphins.
Once we get offshore we have spots that are very consistent producers for both halibut and ling cod. I’ve been told it’s like fishing in a bucket.
- This could be you. Come out, catch fish and become an internet sensation!!
From July to October Washington has one of the best Albacore Tuna fisheries in the world.
ñ We leave early.
Leave the dock at 6:00am head to the bait dock for fresh wigglers and head out fifty miles to the tuna grounds.
ñ We return late.
We try to shoot for 5:00pm return time. But it doesn’t always work out that way.
ñ Between we load up.
ñ Live bait tuna fishing is the most fun you can have in rain gear. These fish get frenzied and will drift along with the boat eating everything we throw at them. You can catch fish till your tired of it, or the boats full.
