    Tekota 500 rebuilds

    I’m in the same situation with old 500/600’s. I sent one back 4 weeks ago to shimano and still haven’t heard anything. I read somewhere it was a 4 to 6 week turnaround sending back to Shimano when I sent mine in. My guess is it could be longer now.

    Area 13 Emergency ESA Closure

    Nope, been here 40 years. There is a springer run and the tribes net minter pretty often, but was mainly asking about ceremonial and subsistence fishing. Was curious if they are being held to the same standard.

    Here you go: https://tidalexchange.com/2017/03/20/numbers-dont-add-tribal-catch-questioned/ You do realize you are asking about something that is taboo to report on.

    Plastic or brass?

    Like others have said bronze for seacocks and other underwater fittings, and stainless steel for scuppers/drains and other above water fittings. Plastic is prone to cracking but gets the job done until it doesn’t.

    Sounds like Ducker!! is just fine with the status quo of fishing for a couple weeks each year.

    King 5 Article

    Of course the article does not touch on how about 90% of all recreational fisheries are mark selective fisheries (we only catch what we plant), while tribal fisheries are 100 non-selective (kill fisheries). Whenever I tell neighbors or anyone that asks about this, they are completely...

    Area 13 Emergency ESA Closure

    Can anyone shed some light on this emergency closure on an area that’s suppose to be open year around? Is this just laziness or WDFW sticking to the angler? I don’t remember any such closures in the past. I assume maybe COVID slowed the process some...

    Ocean 2021

    Correct, been that way for sometime. You can run to area 4 for coho before then but it’s quota constrained where Sekiu does not have a coho quota. Also, it’s a pink year this year so that should keep some interested between when chinook quota runs out and when the coho start to show.

    Saltwater Its Time 2 Fish, Who's In?

    Awesome boat. While fishing by one of these last year in a very large swell, I couldn’t stop watching this boat literally run up/down huge swells with ease. Fishing can be tough in the sound sometimes, so def look to the straits/ocean with that bad boy.
