On Saturday 6/16/12 Eric C, Brian S, Bob H and I fished out of Ilwaco for halibut and salmon.
The overall weather conditions were very good the ocean was nice and flat no wind, but we did have some fog and drizzle at times.
We started the morning halibut fishing. The fishing was not hot but we were able to scratch out our limits of nice halibut on fresh bait.
After halibut fishing we went on the hunt for some salmon. We drove all over in search of bait. It took a long time to find it but when we found it we found it!
There was lots of bait and lots of fish. We had fast action on mid sized Chinook, and were even able to hook one quad!
We had our best luck on hoochies, fresh herring, and spoons.
For those traveling from out of town Monte square in Montesano now has fresh bait for people that call their orders in the day before (bait is delivered by river bend jigs & bait)
