'Slab' coho have arrived!This past week has produced some very exciting ocean fishing.

On Sunday, many coho in the 10- to 15-pound range graced the scales of the Ilwaco Derby Booth. A coho weighing 15.8 pounds was the largest on Sunday. These big coho are explosive when hooked, proving to provide a real challenge, especially when taken on light tackle. Many boats, when encountering schools of these fish, were simply drifting and mooching (with divers) and scoring heavily.
