    Killing fish one tire at a time

    I suspect things were worse back when we still had lead in our gasoline. But, back then we also had the best hatchery system into the world to mitigate things.

    Razor Clams closed due to Toxins

    Domoic Acid wasn't quantified until recently, true, but its effects have been embedded into popular culture for longer than I've been alive. The amnesiac symptoms in sea birds off the California coast was the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock's classic The Birds.

    First hunt of the season is always sketchy

    I must confess, I had a heck of a time this year. After a long search, I found most of the herd neatly put away, clean and tidy in a drawer. Something must be wrong with me.

    Meadow Point

    Hoochies. I like herring strips hit with herring/anise , Lunker Lotion or Smelly Jelly liquid. Then VERY liberally sprinkled with pure krill powder. I usually rub the carked out herring all over the flasher every time I reset too. The krill is crucial, there's always a bunch in the coho.

    Another thought, if anyone is feeling brave. Try those big spinners guys troll for coho on the Columbia. Dave Lee of Three Rivers Marine suggested it at a PSA SnoKing meeting a number of years ago, but I never heard if anyone tried it.

    Bust out the old metal flashers too. F4 Piscator with a super short leader, 1-1.5 flasher lengths. More vibration in the metal blade. Adding a Colorado or willow leaf spinner in the middle of a leader can help too. Gotta piss em off.

    First hunt of the season is always sketchy

    The great annual boot sock hunt is about to begin! Where did they migrate to since I last needed a pair in February? How many mated pairs are in mourning for a lost mate? Do I have the whole herd or is new stock about to be introduced??? I didn't get any for Christmas last year, so this might...

    One for three. Tough day out there. Farmed up several bales of seaweed.

    Brad's Super Cut plugs. I like the blackjack pattern. After carking out your herring strips , chop up what's left add scent and stuff some inside the bait. Just be sure it's a Gold Star squid or an Ace Hi Fly you're putting the strips on!

    Everett Coho Derby 2020

    Dad, Russ and I will be out on the MUGWUMP representing Silver Horde. We'll be fishing our metal flashers. I now have a BB12 in the #837 MUGWUMP pattern! Got a fresh jar of pure krill powder for my herring strips. Ready to roll, even bought dads ticket for him because I am a good son. Take that...

    bra adds

    Oh CRAP. I got the same ad for bagels TWICE! And a ad for an album; The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins. I assume I now have to beg for some sort of forgiveness from the gallery?

    Adds are silly

    Advertising works in unintended ways..... I am now convinced that Geico will NEVER GET A SINGLE CENT FROM THIS DRIVER!!! Fucking piss poor marketing strategy.

    Adds are silly

    Don't forget, the G in Geico does stand for Government!

    Boat window hard water spots

    Leave the water spots on. It has to be good training for dealing with cataracts. Unless you have cataracts already and just THINK your windows have water spots!

    Sunglass holder

    When we redid the electronics and dropped the CB radio dad turned the empty slot in the overhead into a mini glove box. No door, but it holds all the paperwork for a CG inspection, microfiber cloth for wiping down screens, a couple of wallets, sunglasses and maybe a cell phone. Except like most...
