Ilwaco Halibut & Salmon

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)
