After several successful rock fish trips, on the Yellowtailout I hadn't put a Salmon on the deck until 9/11. We landed 2 of the six we hooked. One right at 30lbs, the other 21lbs. I've tried 3 trips since then, zero adults. We landed quite a few juvenile kings 20" off ten mile beach Kehoe to the point. I'm loving the Yellowtailout. I think the Salmon season is done, I'm Halibut fishing tomorrow, off Abbott's.

Nice work, 30lbs fish are hard to get these days...

Some people have fished a long time without a 30# salmon (ahem), excellent work. If you have a lucky boat you better use it!

Awesome fish report and congrats on that amazing catch!  Those pictures inspiring me to get gear ready for after work fishing on the rivers today:)  I just finally caught my first river salmon this month (9 pounder coho), and it abundantly fed 4 people for a couple of days.  How many meals will that 30 pounder provide?

Is that a new style of seat box?

Yea, and I'm not crazy about it. Lid only opens on half the box, and leaks. I redid the weather stripping dry now. To access the front bow section of the box you have to take everything in the back stern section out. The armrest are in the way often, I took them off then put'em back on. Over all I'm loving the Yellowtail.

This Salmon season out of Bodega bay was like the good old days. A lot of big fish came over the rail. That last Big one went in the smoker.

Not so much for us out the GG this year. 5 trips out. 1 on the 3rd trip and 3 on the 4th. Every time was able to save the day with Halis or rock fish. I would read how good the fishing was out of Bodega and wonder what we were doing wrong.I thought the season was over, then the Lovely Martha goes out and gets limits for 7 anglers on Monday off Dux. Oh well ....
