JULY 2018

FISHING REPORT & NEWS

Saturday, July 14th. Fishing is back to being super right now according to some of the local charters. Captains Jim Gordon, Tim Sylvester, Bob Cinelli, Tom Pearse, Vince Pierleoni, were all into the big ones out there this week.

Colors this week have been lemon, chartreuse, white and froggy.

It is hot out there and the fish are moved out farther and haven't really come back in like they were. Many are fishing out 400 and beyond and those fleas are getting all over everyones lines. A tip from Wayne Culverwell ---he has been getting them off his lines with those rubber neoprene gloves the easiest. Some guys are just changing to thicker line. There are still salmon biting a bit inside 80 to 200. Haven't heard of anyone catching anything huge there currently. Some say the bigger ones are offshore deep water 60 to 70 down.

We haven't seen any big monsters on the scale in a few days, but the scales in town are awaiting that big one that didn't get away.

There are some great tournaments this week - Book a room in town somewhere while you can and get into all three tournaments. Only do that if you like to win a lot of money though. The Wilson Bicentennial, the LOTSA Tournaments and the LOC.

There are still two weeks left in the Summer LOC for that 10K grand prize king. It still pays back 20 places in all divisions and there is a lot of room to knock your friends right off the board. The weather is hot-humid; the fleas and fish are biting.

Have a great day.
