Elger Bay Grocery & Gifts

THE place for everything Fishing & Crabbing around Camano Island

Fishing Report 11/4/11

After 4 days of fishing, tons of Winter Blackmouth are being caught!!! Sadly, most of them are not legal, but they’re close. Almost everyone I’ve talked to says they are catching 10 or more shakers per trip, many of them measuring just under 22″. That being said, we have had a few fish weighed in for our running Winter Blackmouth Derby(which you can still join for just $10 per person and runs until April 30th):

Frank Hunt – 9lb 8oz
Dennis Hoggarth – 5lb 13oz
Dan Rommel – 4lb
Mike Navarre – 3lb 12oz

At least one of those fish was caught inside Elger Bay on a Coyote spoon behind a Hot Spot flasher. Other popular choices for Blackmouth include: White Lightning, Irish Cream, Army Truck and Purple Haze Coho Killers & Kingfisher spoons behind Purple Haze, Red Racer or Green Glow 11″ flashers. Your leader should be anywhere from 42″-48″ depending on your preference and make sure you troll slower than you would for Coho or Pinks.

DON’T FORGET: CRABBING IS OPEN! 7 days a week until December 31st with a 5 per person daily limit, minimum 6 1/4″ and males with hard shells only.
