"It was on fire (Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 23-24), and we caught 18 pinks this morning to go along with our three silvers and once was a nice ocean one going about 9 to 10 pounds," said Gary Krein, owner of All-Star Charters in Shilshole Bay.

visited Sinclair Inlet Friday afternoon and evening, according to several people who reported the whales to the Kitsap Sun and to Orca Network.

The first sighting was about 4 p.m. in Rich Passage, where three whales were observed swimming toward Bremerton.
