    Oh yes, the sounds of spring.

    Seen plenty of kings caught out on the water lately. Cant wait for the bank ice to melt off the creeks and hit some steelhead.

    See ya on the water!

    reminds me of when i worked at sagaya and one of the workers there was fishing silvers or kings (cant remember the time of year) way out at the mouth of ship creek. anyway he told me of all the halibut he seen "jumping" out of the water. i said NAW halibut? he said "yea you could see there white bellies."took me a bit but i figured he was seeing beluga whales out there.

    Well my wife has told me to shut up and quit talking about fishing about a dozen times in the last week, so spring should be right around the corner.

    large flights of pelicans are cruising the southern Oregon coast too... should be a good tuna season 50 miles offshore!

    Monkey nailed it

    Porpoises for sure. I had him explain it detail to me. The fin on the back ruled out halibut and the fact he only ever saw backs, no head, which is exactly how Porpoises break pretty much explains it all. Definetly further out than he originally explained too.

    Although... the giant alaskan penguins have started their spring run early so you never know.

    I took a look, did not see anything. My money is on Herring or Porpoises

    Knowing the area my guess would be herring or halibut as we've all described.... I'll be South of town for most of May, and I'm hoping to see much of this behavior... solo-ing the boat lends itself to throwing flies rather than long hours trolling. Sight fishing for halibut... I love it!

    I dunno

    I guess it could be halibut. The behavior he described sounded almost like pre spawning salmon but I dont think thats possible in early April. Maybe... just maybe his depth perception is out of wack and he was seeing herring that were much closer than he thought making them look like larger fish further away.... maybe. Being almost even with the water level it's sometimes hard to judge distance.
