We kicked off our 2013 season with Salmon galore! Chinook and Coho thick as thieves off Red Rock, Flat Tops, Light House, so abundant in fact, it was a challenge to get to the bottom fish: “A quality problem indeed,” stated many of our loyal guests.  A Few weeks later, the Salmon were furiously feeding along side dozens of humpback…
