I watched hundreds of fishing boats head out into the estuary chasing chinook salmon before first light as I tried to stay awake. A very slow start to the day turned into chaos when my rod folded over mid-morning, and I landed my biggest salmon at the time. And yes, I started to fall asleep right as the bite happened. The afternoon fishing was wild with 5 fish landed in less than 45 minutes with rods folding over almost on queue.
