By Eric Granstrom
For, I'm Eric Granstrom. I'd heard and read plenty about "The Bubble" but had never fished there. That was until Marion and I spent an evening fishing with our friend who lives in Stanwood. For our readers and listeners in Eastern Washington, "The Bubble" is a fishery in Puget Sound just off of Tulalip Bay. This section of the Sound is a popular place to fish early season Chinook and late-season Coho and Pink Salmon. The area falls under the management of the Tulalip Indian Tribe and not Fish and Wildlife, which means the restrictions are a little less. I reached out to Matthew the previous week because I'd seen on Facebook that he'd had some pretty good success so far at "The Bubble." We launched from Kayak Point at about 4 o'clock and had lines in the water by 5 after checking our crab pots. Matthew said if we find bait balls, we're in business. A huge tide Friday had apparently affected the bait fish and things were pretty slow. In addition, we hit jelly fish several times, which fowls the gear. Even though we didn't hook up, I learned a whole new fishery. Until next time, Good Fishing!
