Fishing Report
July 24, 2015
Entrance Island  is the place to be!  There are Springs between 120-200 feet on the East side of the Long reef on the Southern end of Entrance. There are still some nice Coho in there as well. Green Glow, Irish Cream, and Pink Sink spoons are your best bets. Another very productive spot is the area following the shore from the end of the Tinson Point rock fish conservation zone, North to Olibar Point. (The point closest to Entrance). You can troll this area, but jigging with Delta Half Jigs is also working.
The entire area around Entrance is also infested with small Pink Salmon. Try to target them with small pink hootchies. Expect a lot of action!
  I was out yesterday for a mid-day fish. I fished close to The Fingers as my battery wasn’t charging, and my kicker’s water pump was partially blocked... so I wanted to stay close to the dock. Ever pull started a 50 hp outboard? It wasn't too easy, but good practice. 
Anyway, I got one decent Spring (on 3” Killy Magee) right as I was letting the gear down, and then spent the next 2 hours releasing tons of undersized ones. Lots of entertainment but not too productive.
