Re: Seatle-San Fransisco sailtrip/What to expect?

Usuallly good fishing on the northern leg of the trip. Fished the Swiftsure Bank commercially for a few years trolling salmon out of Port Alberni. If you are just throwing a line over for dinner, try a Tom Mack #4 small spoon with a Gibbs dodger back about 8 feet on 50 lb test and you should strike it rich for at least one fish and 2 meals.
You need to get out around 25-30 miles from from Cape Flattery to avoid the shelf swell and get in to true ocean movement.
I would avoid going between Tatoosh Island and the Cape, rather head straight out for 20+miles before hanging a left... Cheers, Capt Phil
