The trolling patterns are from Fidalgo Head to the small bay just west of the mouth of flounders Bay from inside Fidalgo Head to the northwest corner of Burrows Island and from this point along the western shore of the Fidalgo Head to Green Point. One thing to keep in mine fishing this area is too frequently check your terminal gear make sure you are trolling weeds on your terminal tackle; so check every 15 to 30 minutes
Fidalgo Head and Burrows Island water can be fished with easy access for Skyline Marina. The area is protected by the San Juan Islands from all except the stiff west wind and is close enough to home base should it the wind blow up. Flashers with squids, herring whole and cutplug all produce fish here.
