We decided to leave the dock at 6:00 am today instead of the usual 7:00 am departure time so we could catch as much of the high slack as possible. Things paid off as the action around the slack tide was excellent for coho in the W.Van area. Multiple hook ups were had, including a few double headers and we ended up putting a few fish in the box. Unfortunately the bite died off as the tide started to push but we made the best of it in the morning. As per the last few weeks, white hootchies, and spoons have been working well. There are also some fish getting caught on smaller Apex lures in white, red, or pink.
