Fall run is starting to heat up in Winchester

I spent 6 hrs. from the 101 bridge to the bend trolling cut plug herring and hooked up with two fish. There was a lot of other boats and I saw maybe 30 fish caught. So, even though the tides weren't perfect, they're in!

p.s. the seals were THICK and way more successful than us.

I've been using 40lb. mainline with a 30 lb. leader and 17lb. drop line to my sinker

.22 caliber test seems to be tough enough for seals

Yeah i need to invest in .410 seal test.

There was a pack of no less than 10 seals all grouped together at once there yesterday above the bend. There are mothers with little babies, teaching them to be diabolical hooked salmon assassins. It's no good, no good at all. At least they aren't ginormous freakin' sealions! although i'm sure there are some of those around too!

I got spooled last year at half moon bay on my first hook up of the year chucking king fishers for coho by one of those darn things. I fully suport the use of .22 cal leaders, .45cal droppers, dupont spinners but a 30-06 with a scope is more my style. Go get um boys.
