Went to Winchester Tuesday evening and the fishing was great! Good enough to stay overnight and fish Wednesday as well. My buddy and I limited out Tuesday on bottom fish and about half dozen perch. Then Wednesday we hit it hard but had the tides against us and only caught about dozen fish (greenling and perch) all together. I had one huge fish hit and double over my salmon rod, unfortunately I never got to see it before it broke my line, but it fought harder than a few salmon I have caught. Sorry no pics.

Oh yeah, before you ask... sand shrimp was the bait of the day on #2 hooks.

Walked about 75 feet from where I parked. I have always walked way down the jetty thinking that the fishing would be better. I was happy to discover that close in was better than far out... at least this time.

I haven't, but it has been because of weather extremes. As soon as it gets a little more fishing friendly over there I'm going back.

Just love this thread.

Just love this thread.

I've not caught many fish at winchester, mostly crab and some salmon.

I harvest more when I don SCUBA gear but that can be troublesome at my age.

I love sea bass perch and Ling cod.

I see them in abundance while diving but they are just out of range for the Hawaiian sling except for perch that is.

I hope to learn from you all on how to rig my line for catching other bottom fish.

Crabbing is the most fun with SCUBA however.... You get to hand select your catch.
That is way too cool.
Same with clams.

It's funny, my family used to salmon fish Winchester hard back in the day and I've crabbed there as long as I can remember... but I've never really fished it myself. Well, unless you count jigging herring as a kid. It's one of those things I've been working on rectifying.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but what is a Hawaiian sling? My brother was just telling me about something a guy was telling him, using a spider sinker I think.....

It's a long spear with a rubber bungie on one end ant a forked prong on the other.
