Helen-H Trip Report

797 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  quiknet
Finally got on the Helen-H after being blown 6 times. Ride out of the harbor took a little while as there is broken ice still there. After passing through the harbor it was clear and fast sailing. Fishing at the start of the day was good and steady, action on both jigs and bait. As the day progressed the action shifted to bait fishing and towards the end bait was pretty much the only way to go to catch any fish. Around 3/4 ways through the trip they ran out of BAIT and that hurt as the fish were banging on the bait. Overall I did okay with about 15 keepers, biggest around mid-twenties and second largest in the high teens. Pool fish was around 32lbs and was caught on bait. Oh yeah the weather was great! Nice to meet you Mike.

Picture. The fish on the right was "hooked" right by the dorsal fin. You can see where. Quite the fight in 200+ feet of water.
