Check regulations on limits. Two fish is the limit. Assess whether a shorter trip than six hours is appropriate: we booked six hours, however only fished three because we had reached our limit, and the Guide was hesitant to continue catching and releasing, even though the hooks were barbless. as a guide myself, I totally understand this stance. Overall great trip.

The salmon moved around and so did we. The captain put us on top of bait balls. We caught our limit of coho within 1.5 hours. We did 1 more hour of C n R. We went on to fishing for flounder. The action was continuous.

I loved my trip with Capt. David. We got on fish right away and when or if a fish took a hook he’d let me do as much or little as I wanted to re-outfit and get back in the water. As an avid steelhead/salmon fisher I super appreciated getting to have hands on. I highly recommend his charter for those like myself or the first timer. I am from California, Wind Knot Salmon Guides filled my first ever Washington salmon trip with hilarious stories, caught lots of fish and I had a great day in the Sound.

Yes, captain Justin worked hard to put us on fish. He was very flexible working with us to make the trip happen.

Listen to the guy who’s been doing it for ages. Don’t assume you know everything. Be willing to learn new techniques. You’ll catch them.

It was warm but not until around 10. Otherwise the sites were beautiful and the fish were biting a lot!! A few dog fish but we caught way more salmon than dog.

Keep in touch with your alloted captain and charter company, ask what weather and fishing conditions have been like and recommended changes prior to your arrival.

Be prepared for different weather conditions. It can be very chilly in the morning out on the water, but can get quite warm in the afternoon.

Try to go on a day without a lot of wind - the day we went it was extremely windy and we had a lot of chop.

So so so cold...but if one has proper shoes (we didn't) and dress in plenty of layers it wouldn't be too bad.

Could just be the season but there was a ton of bait fish but also almost an infestation of dog sharks who would grab your bait before most salmon had a chance.

Book a guide for lake or River fishing to get a better idea on where to go & what to throw .

Sometimes it's good; sometimes it stinks. That's just how it goes. Lots of dog fish.
