I went dirt bagging in Grays Harbor for a couple days for the first time in what must be eight years. Not really sure why, other than there are way too many things to do in Sept. and Oct. Looking for silvers and got a nice one right off the bat Thursday morning. I thought, "This is gonna' be good!" Scratch fishing the rest of the day and the next day as well, but ended up with a couple limits. It's comforting to have some fish on hand. Fresh coho off the BBQ last night and we'll have some again tonight. Even with the vacuum packer, fresh is invariably better than frozen. The fish hit spinners, anchovies, and one of those Brad's clam shell do-hickies that you stuff with tuna guts. I imagine they would have hit herring, but we didn't have any. I hope to get out again, but there's so many places to fish and so little of Oct. left.
