    Thinking of moving to Southern Washington

    I am surprised that my post turned so political. We still have not made a decision on moving. Hard to leave the kids and grandkids. The appeal to me is so much less people excluded Seattle and the state state has a much lower population density. It’s green and clean and I’m kind of sick of the...

    cedros island in my own boat???

    Jeff has a wealth of knowledge and is a great guy. My own personal opinion is you should stay away from the island until the danger of the virus has passed. They have stayed safe and the last I heard they have not had any cases of COVID on the island yet. It would be really great to keep it that...

    Any one move from a 3/4-ton to 1/2-ton and regret it?

    I own a Parker 2320 and had a 2004 Chevy 2500 Duramax. I recently bought Ram 1500 with a Eco diesel. It is a V6 and is rated to 9100 pounds. I think it ties my boat better than my 2500 Duramax. The 25 mpg is pretty cool as well.

    How do you feel about changing the swordfish bag limt?

    We can agree to disagree. But after 250+ years we Americans still have our guns . I think voluntary self regulation is a much better idea. I do not want to give the legislature of the totally screwed up state the ability to decide how I fish. Once they take away a right we never get it back.

    Making Mackerel

    I have two tips for you 1) If you don't get mackeral at the bait receiver then take a few minutes to catch some yourself. 2) The easiest way to find them is troll a small (3 to 4")Rapala look alike till you hook a mack, then toss a can of cat food in the water. Sabiki up a dozen or so baits.

    Fishing in a lightning storm?

    We were on a house boat on lake Powell. Thunder storms are common there in the summer. I was standing on the back deck fishing my wife said get in here before you get hit by lightning at that moment a bolt cracked off about 400 feet away. I was knocked on my ASS.

    Saturday 7/18 yft/lighting/rain

    I have people flake on my and it is the last time they get invited. That is almost as bad as taking a guy fishing and pulling the driveway and having them say "Gotta go bro, promised the wife I would be home early" leaving you to clean the boat alone. Way to go on finding your own fish, we were...

    Glow in the Dark Blanks U.C.

    I made my own. I bought glow in the dark powder off Ebay. It is used by fingernail ladys to make acrylic nails glow. A 10 gram bag cost about 6 dollars. I did a base wrap in light green and mixed the glow in the dark powder with my waterbase color preserver in did several coats of that mixture...

    7/11/15 fishing Cat and learned something new from the Gail force

    I think the idea to let your wallet do the talking. I will never set foot on this boat and never fish a boat out of LA Harbor sport fishing again. Enough people do this the landing may actually do something about this ass hole. Hopefully the owners read this. I just went on the LA Harbor...

    Department of Fish and Game Surveys

    I tell them I choose to not participate . I do this for several reasons, 1) I am usually in a hurry to get home to a warm shower and a cold beer. 2) I do not trust they are out to protect my right to fish. 3) Last time I did work with them the guy poured my catch onto the hot pavement and let...

    Spanish Macs are really good eating if you cook them fresh. I was a cook on a fishing boat and was challenged to cook bait for lunch one slow day, we had a tank of those and a tank of live squid. I tossed the jack fillets in olive oil garlic and scallions and popped them on a hot grill pan for...
