    Ocean Shrimp

    It looks like there is an interesting slope not too far out to the south of Duncan rock that would be a good place to try, and not quite as deep as the areas further out. Would love to hear about someone dropping there, 200 shrimp per person may be worthwhile if they are there??????

  300. Mr. Doodles

    RIP A10 summer kings

    I may be wrong, but I do not believe there are ANY non native gill-nets inside Puget Sound No one should be using gill nets anywhere in my opinion... I can live with purse seiners but all gill nets should be outlawed and no one should be above the law...not even the "natives"
  301. Mr. Doodles

    Somehow local news cares about salmon.....

    Just saw it on the news! Way to go Dan! but you should have let go with both barrels!! a little restraint was probably a good thing to start with. Thanks!
  302. Mr. Doodles

    Time to be honest with the board.

    Don't sweat the small stuff just pretend you are fishing in MA11 it is always like that here Cheers! And if you ever want to come to 11 for a boat ride I'll make room for you on my boat!
  303. Mr. Doodles

    Downrigger mounting

    One very simple thing no matter where you mount them make sure you make or buy release clips that are long enough to reach from the DR line back to the boat comfortably then you can just scoop up the release clip with the end of your rod and pull it back to you to clip in, makes it simple.

    Another Skunking

    I've never been too concerned about the Human scent and don't use gloves but my theory is that with all the scents used they probably get a little rancid aftere a while and cleaning with soap cleans that off. It has consistantly helped the crab pots after sea stars for sure.

    area 11 report

    Was out early yesterday in north 11 2 19-20" shakers, 1 good take down with nobody home and 2 pots with 10 dungies, all undersized or female and 1 Rock Crab. Gee I wonder where all the crab went??? On the bright side there is TONS of bait in the water so when the fish arrive they should be FAT...

    How do you tell when someone has been stealing from your crab pots?

    The reality is there are plenty of scumbags out there But, if you consider the value and enjoyment that comes from both Crabbing and Fishing, the rare "stolen pot" and the few times that someone pulls your pots and steals your crab are sort of the "cost of doing business" Don"t get me wrong I...

  619. Mr. Doodles

    How was your crabbing today?

    Crabbing Sucked for us in 11, 4 pots 3 pulls on 1-2 hour soaks only gave us 2 keepers. Tons of undersize, females, and red rock that went back. Pretty slim pickings at all my usual places We even tried deep-water crabbing 200-250 ft no luck there. On the bright side picked up a nice 10-12lb...

    Redondo Thieves!!!

    Swanny you are 100% right on all of the above, It's not worth my fat butt confronting them but from my perch at the window something less than lethal a pellet, or paintball gun or even a wrist rocket with ball bearings would sure make me feel better. It seems like every 6 months some tweeker...

    Redondo Thieves!!!

    Couldn't get downstairs to them quick enough I think I will need something that can reach out and touch them, Maybe a pellet gun with a laser sight? It didn,t look like they were interested in anything but the gas But best secure the kicker a little more.

    Good Day Fishing

    I wouldn't worry about a true weight, Nice fish! what the chart says is good enough for me! any Butt inside Puget Sound is a nice catch! Maybe the weight difference is due to the difference in Ca. butt and Pacific Butt we picked up a 53 incher on Sat. and the chart said 70lbs and it was...
