I had one single day on the ocean bucktailing for silvers. Ed Bowles hosted Rob Perkin and me in his genuine plywood 1972 dory built by Paul Hanneman.
Fishing was slow, but we had a great time as usual, caught a few black rockfish and even managed to boat a few silvers. One hatchery salmon came home for dinner, but several were released intentionally and unintentionally just before they were within reach. Pink tube bucktails were popular with the salmon, but they seemed to be feeding on crab larvae.
By the time I will have posted this note, the silvers we fished for will long have entered the river.
So it goes with all of us.
