Trip Overview

Best Rod: The downriggers were great early on, later in the day meat rigs on dipsy divers
Other Notes: Trolling into the waves was much better than trolling with them. Later in the morning the fish moved from 70-75 of water to 85-90 feet of water. I dropped the riggers down 10 feet each and started catching fish again. I did the same with the meatrigs on the dipsys.
Fish Caught: 18
Fish Lost: 12
Majority of Species Caught: Kings and Cohos
