Dash To The Point!

Pinks in deep South Sound!

At least a few pods.

Northwest Sportsman contributor Jason Brooks hit the Dash Point Pier in Federal Way on Saturday with his young son Ryan and filed the following report and pics:

I took Ryan to Dash Pt on Sat from 11 a.m.  to 1 p.m. and we saw about 10 pinks landed with about as many lost while trying to be hoisted up to the pier.

We primarily went to put in Ryan’s new crab pot, which he got after last weekend’s crabbing up at Grant’s beach house. Last weekend we only got two rock crab and Ryan ate them both, so I got him one of those folding crab pots and he just wanted to put it out so bad and catch some crab. We got one barely legal rock crab, which he promptly ate for lunch.

Anyway, the crabbing sucks off the pier, but while there (at low to incoming tide) four schools of pinks went by — what a frenzy! Three to four fish on at a time! See attached photos.
