For the month of November and then continuing from January through April our Local Winter King Salmon fishery season opens in the Puget Sound. This is a great time to get out and catch the feeder kings and also intercept the migrating Spring Kings that are headed to the Skykomish River. These migratory King Salmon average eight to sixteen pounds while the feeder kings average six to eleven pounds and both make for great table fare! On an average day you can expect multiple hook ups with good fishing. All fishing is done in the heated North River Offshore boat that is very comfortable and a great fishing machine!

May and June is the time for spring sunshine, snow covered mountains in the distance and aggressive Ling Cod! There is no better place to catch these aggressive fighting fish than in the San Juan Islands which is just over a one hour drive north of Seattle. The San Juan Islands are truly unique and give you that south east Alaska feel. The tree covered islands are steep and tall which fall straight into the emerald color water. While fishing in the San Juan Islands you will see all kinds of wildlife such as seals, whales, eagles and other sea birds. The Ling Cod are very aggressive and are a predator to most fish. Fishing for them is done with a hands on approach with Ultra-Light tackle and you will enjoy hooking into these ferocious biters. The fight is excellent and the taste is even better!

July and August is the month for migrating Puget Sound King Salmon near Seattle and also in the San Juan Islands. It’s a great time of year all the way around; with the sunshine out and the conditions being perfect to catch these big King Salmon! We leave early each morning to get that twilight early morning bite which is the best time king Salmon feed. The fish average fourteen to twenty four pounds and fight like crazy. When you hook up on these amazing Salmon they will make several runs away from the boat pulling hard on that rod! We will fish several locations in a day so you will see beautiful scenery and abundant sea life while on the trip. Many times on a clear day you can see Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier at the same time while fishing for these awesome Salmon. We can even drop a few crab pots this time of year and catch some really nice Dungeness crab to pair with your catch of Salmon!

Just after King Salmon in Puget Sound the migrating Silver Salmon show up in big numbers headed to all of the Puget Sound Rivers. The fishing in September and October is very good with the average fish being around 7-12 pounds. Towards the middle of September the much larger hook nose Coho show up and they average ten to fifteen pounds with an occasional fish tipping the scales in the high teens. The Silver Salmon is known for its acrobatic fight and speed. We catch them on ultra-light rods and high speed reels to ensure a fun fight with just enough tackle to make sure these fish find the net and your dinner table! We strive for limits of fish each and every day we are on the water.King slamon
