2013 Puget Sound King Salmon Season Opener, Epic!

With reports of limits from various sources the Selective Chinook fishery is under way!. Reports from Mid-Channel Bank to Posession Bar have all been awesome. The only thing tempering the enthusiasm for the opener is the fact that this was coming on the largest hatchery Chinook forecast in over a decade!. So gear up and be ready for a crazy weekend on the water!. Here are a few pictures from today’s catches. Courtesy of Tom Nelson and Captain Nick Kester from All Star Charters.
