One angler’s silver-catching playbook

Strolling along the Possession Beach Waterfront Park in Clinton on Thursday, James Hauser holds a 5-pound silver (coho) salmon he caught from shore. He said he was taking it to a friend. Live herring was the 15-year-old boy’s bait of choice, and other anglers should take heed. He claimed to be a coho master, saying he landed 39 last summer, most of them being caught from the beach. Silver salmon fishing is picking up around Whidbey Island, with a second-hand report from The Fishin’ Club President Kevin Lungren that Lagoon Point beach anglers are seeing regular action.  - Ben Watanabe / The Record
