PHOTOS: Burien Salmon Are Biting “Anything Pink” – Including Bubblegum?
You know summer is peaking when the salmon are biting so much that people are catching them from shorelines around the Burien area, including these folks seen at Three Tree Point on Sunday, Aug. 23rd:
“It’s crazy down there,” said a young man named Julio as he was waiting for a ride back up Maplewild. “Everyone’s catching their limit. Pink buzz bombs are working man â€“ in fact, the fish are biting anything pink – even bubblegum!”
No word yet on which brand of bubblegum is best, but we’ll chew on it a while and let you know…
8/26 UPDATE: Wednesday afternoon, King County Sheriff’s deputies were checking for fishing licenses at Three Tree Point, so do NOT fish for salmon without one – you can buy them online here.
