Elger Bay Grocery & Gifts

THE place for everything Fishing & Crabbing around Camano Island

Fishing Report 12/5/11

For a nice change of pace, the fishing report last week was actually very good. While crabbers are still catching enough Dungies to fill their dinner plates, Blackmouth fishermen had decent success around Elger Bay, Sandy Beach and in front of the State Park boat launch. Several fish each day were brought in and weighed at the store, with many more shakers and natives thrown back those same days. Most of the success was had trolling with spoons and herring near the bottom.

Glen is still in the lead of the Elger Bay running derby with his 15 pounder, but the competition is hot on his tail! One new participant landed a 19lb keeper but had just signed up for the derby that morning so we couldn’t weigh his fish for the contest. He vowed to keep at it though!

Crabbing closes at the end of this month but Chinook Salmon will stay open until April 30th.
