I spent the summers of my youth in the late 80’s/early 90’s on Lopez Island in the San Juan Islands. My family had a home at the mouth of Fisherman’s Bay and my brother and I had a long leash, with my parents allowing us to essentially bike and hike the extent of the island at our leisure, as long as we were home by dinner. We fished crab, ling cod, and salmon with minimal achievement in those times. I asked my Dad if he thought that the reason we were so sporadic in our salmon fishing in those days was because of our technique or the because of the bad fishing…and we agreed it was likely both. Crab we never seemed to have problems with.
