Went down to my buddy's house for a weekend of bottom fishing in Brookings.North the first day ,south the second. Slow pick both days.Don't know if its pressure from lack of salmon or the tons of bait,but it was slow.Used my buddy's swim baits[C and J tackle] and we ended up with 4 lings and about 20 good quality blacks.The second day we saw em busting the bait balls so we slow trolled swimbaits on a half oz head and it worked pretty good.I hooked the biggest Vermillion I have ever seen and proceeded to let it go to make more.Glad I did ,as I showed the fish checker gal at the dock a picture of it and she said it was at least 50 yrs old! F A C ocean.Heard some guys getting tuna out about 35 miles,but didn't hear how it was. Have Fun!

Water is very warm.I stopped in on the way home at Gold Beach ramp and there were a few guys with fish.Saw about 40 boats east of the bridge
 
Ahhhhh, Brookings :) My home town! I love going up to House and Twin rocks to bottom fish. Even all the way up to Mac Arch when it is flat enough and I have all day. Good looking fish!

Sounds like a good trip, that Vermillion is pretty cool!

Anybody in Brookings have ideas where the salmon are?

Sounds like they're out pretty far and down 300-400ft. From what little I've heard commercials are doing good, but it's too hard for most rec guys to target them.

Headed down to my buddy's house on the mouth of the Chetco yesterday for a little bottom fishing. Headed out this am in a sloppy foggy ocean. We ended up with 3 limits of QUALITY blacks and a bonus ling! This guy was eyeballing the big herring on the gunnel and had a nice lunch! Have Fun!
