11/25/2013 - hookemchumumstyle - Hood Canal, Mason County, WA
Headed out in the heavy freezing fog today. Finally found the hatchery at Hoodsport. Only 2 other guys there, Could barely see the water. Fishing from a boat, my buddy and I and his 10 year old son, never had so much fun. First 4 casts got 4 chums hooked, all hens. Using corkies in green, with purple and pink yard. About 3 feet of leader. I heard the run was over, but these fish were all real bright. There was 3 or 4 groups of fish, with around 50 or 60 in each group. Ended up hooking around 60 - 80 all together. A smattering of them ended up being foul hooked. But those went back in the water. The sun didn't shine till almost 1, thank God. I don't think our hands could have taken any more. As soon as the sun came up about 20 fisherman showed up. All but 2 were doing things right. Some of them were foul hooking them, but throwing them back. The other 2 insisted on snagging and keeping, and of course throwing across everyone. We just went with bigger line. And made sure our lines, cut theirs. I know that may not be right. But the other fisherman, got to fish while those 2 kept having to re tie. Oh and all were females, and bright pink meat. Im going to try and fry some up, even though everyone says they are no good. OH and this was all of our first trips for chum. Good memories

Went to Hoodsport hatchery yesterday (07/24/13), after clamming at Cushman Park,and saw quite a few Chinook and Humpies, so decided to make a trek the next day. Unfortunately I was unaware that the tribes were going to be netting...they were doing beach-seine netting in three places, completely covering the fishing area. Found out they will be netting on TUE & THU, 7AM to 4PM. So...the fish are there, but choose a proper day before you go.

Went to the hatchery at hoodsport to see if all the hype about chums was true. I gathered up all my gear and riged my pole with uv red yarn and a red corkey. I timed my drive perfectly and got there just as the tide was turning. I walked out to the beach and there were tons of chum, too many to count.Only trouble was, the were all in the Indians nets, three sets of seine nets covered the whole area!!!! Also a huge prossing boat anchored just offshore.No chum for my smoker, but i guess we cant expect people overseas to eat their sushie without fresh chum roe.

At the hatchery just before sunrise and got on the water. Cold...lots of fining, big schools, very few biting. Lots of foul hooking and fun fighting fish however by the time high tide hit we didn't have our limits. Fun day just a little light on bright fish.

Got to the boat launch early. First time trying to find hoodsport and ended up a couple miles north for a good part of the day. LOTS of finning and fish. Came back and found hoodsport and stayed for a couple. Hooked three and enjoyed the time! Fish all over.

Ran up to Hood Canal for the afternoon tide and some Chinooks. Fished the little beach just north of Hoodsport. Arrived around 3:00 pm and started throwing corkies, but no luck. There was a negative tide, and high tide wasn't until 5:30 pm, so the water was a little low. Switched to buzzbombs and darts - Brian caught a searun cutthroat on a buzzbomb, and Aaron caught a remarkably ugly 5-inch fish on a corkie(?). Only saw one fish on from a boat at the end of the day. Even the hatchery was pretty barren - no fish on stringers when we checked on our way out.  
Weather was temperate and very accomodating, and my new waders didn't leak!

11-07-2003 Hoodsport Point, overlooking the Combat lines of Snagger City. The Chums were massing just offshore. What was more exciting? Fighting Chums pushing 20 lbs.or watching them Flying sideways with their Aerial Displays!(one Dancing Gal shot up 13 times before tiring)Well to be honest, catching one of these Toothy "Willy Wanabes" does have its own arm wrentching thrill. We tried every form of Bait and lure known to Man and the Lassies with an attitude kept giving us the cold shoulder. Then it happened! There hiding deep in the Cooler, still frozen lay our soon to be discovered "Secret Weapon".....ANCHOVIES....purchased on a whim at the last minute these little popcicle sprats ended up saving the day.Strung up on a Needle in the Vent and out the mouth, floating behind a Bobber and a few split shot made for Nonstop Action! But alas my friend would finally say those sad words "WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE'RE OUT OF ANCHOVIES!" As quickly as it had startedthe action stopped and we headed Home worn out but happy our Cooler in toe,the Salty Dogs headed for the smoker "TRAPPER"

Ran by the beach north of Hoodsport this morning. Met up with Easy Limits and a few friends of his. Fishing was fairly slow. I hooked into three, but lost them all. Easy managed to hooked into a few as well. His friends' daughter was slaying them, though. She seemed pretty worn out after the 3rd or 4th one and was passing the rod off to others. I tried Dick Nites, corkie (2 fish bit on that, green/white corky), a couple jigs, and a Rainbow Plastics Pot O Gold spoon (one fish on that). Good day, though! Perfect weather (rainy and mild) and good company.

Went to Twanoh State Park at 3pm to check out the crabbing action. There was a guy there who had been there since 8am and only had two small keepers. Promptly turned around and went back home.
