I know my freezers are overfull, its been a good year, spotty at times, but with the right crew, it works out.
Next Year, its Time for Rayne to take this record, its time for her to get on the tuna and we will bring actual shark gear.:D
Thanks Erik, I think it will last until at least August 27th, :rolleyes:
I absolutely agree. I hope to help Salmon King's daughter take this record next year, its time for her to get on the tuna and we will bring actual...
In 1976 I recall my Grandfather, Fred G. Chartrand taking me out for my first saltwater fishing trip. If memory serves we went for salmon out of...
This is a great story, its very exciting seeing how the WDFW biologists get soo excited to have a chance to see and investigate these animals. My...
I recently did and you called me names......:)
sadly, i can say better than i did on sunday. I am pretty sure i drove right past them. 132 miles of running for nothing but a hell of a roller...
OH, thats right i forgot...:)
After three hours of trolling sunday, and the howling winds, i have no pictures, i decided it was just not my day.
I wanna say that was the good karma for providing me a place to hang out while i waited for my keys to return from bremerton. Instead I will say,...
I heard this on 16. Never really got any good details, I think we were way south of you all. I hope all is well in the end.
typically its better to drive the extra ~200 miles and go out of la push or westport.
Yes, but the point was, I would be out on my first trip in 8 days from that post, now its like two more days, and the weather gods are looking to...
The BigButt is chomping at the bit to get out and stretch the tuna leggs. Finally got the engine sync issue resolved so hopefully a lot less...
8 more stupid days of that dirty four letter word that starts with W and ends in K...then I hope to be near the rest of the tuna catching guys!!!...
thanks for at least rubbing it in that you got out there....hope you get more soon!
i gots to get the butt ready....time to go...here fishy fishy

oh man oh man......hoping to score some catching like this VERY soon..
very good, some winter crabbies are a must.
still a trip, something that has been off my schedule for a while....so ready for some time on the Big Butt....looks like may is the next time she...
I had the same experience, wish i had a better net, could have grabbed them that way..heheh...nothing would work...weird year.
we did real well there weds, but in 110' of water at 85' on the troll. so many wild cohos i lost count.
Sorry that happened to you, way to remain the ever vigilant professional. Sent you a FB pm.
Kool-aid, you can bring your bean bag and sleep on my big butt anytime!
Nice Report, now I know what that sooty looking crap was on my boat.
nice job, seems the furbags have learned what a net means, maybe we all should just randomly net the water, confuse them..
thats a post worth reading!!
I went out with Patrick Walker almost a month ago, and all the fish were HAWGS, i don't get what is up this year. hopefully Monday is a great run.
real time posting!!! get some, good luck to you!
better report than i have , sounds like a very expensive fish, hopefully it was a good time though.
thanks for the pics!!
That sucks, i hope you find it.
very nice, good for you all!!
I shifted to mooching, because there were soo many shakers. Got more dogs, but hooked a couple of legals, barely....
I find, if they are marking on the sonar, and wont bite anything piss in your bait tank:zelfmoord, then send one of the top swimmers out, on a 1/2...
great report, thanks. Looking forward to my turn. Kerry Allen, Cya monday!!
Thanks for the report, seems like everyone is saying the bite is late afternoon....maybe sleeping in next week is the right thing to do??
still more tuna than i can report this week, hopefully the bite comes back soon, 12 days to my trip with Cap'n Kerry!!

thanks for the report
nice fish, seems like everyone overlooked that, and only see the cleaning station, which is nice but...well, nice fish man!!
ah, the trials of tuna...cant wait to get out there, and see if i can get a bait stop this year!!
nice pics, i see the maple syrup on that halibut...hehehe
I love that you posted this report, facts are if it was always on it would be called catching, not fishing. I hope your luck turns and the pigs...
i always let one hang, till the next "fish on" its risk to pull that one in that soon, but there is less flesh burn...at least that is my...
I was out with Pat on Tailwalker Charters Saturday, we had a hell of a good time, and loaded up some nice tuners...looks like you were close buy,...

Eric, you and your lovely wife are always welcome on my boat, but you have to come on one of the "chips" days next time! :)

Glad you got out there Vance. We got five out of ilwaco, no troll, not a one would bite that way,
this must have been earlier in the week? could not have been Saturday out of ilwaco, the wind kicked up for us around 2pm...
We couldn't get a tuna to bite on the troll for anything...used caveman instincts and stopped, tossed swimmers, and scratched out 5 in the boat,...
way to find them!!

I hope they are not too far out and you guys have a great time!
Nice report, I have found Tuna heads are the thing for shrimp, and sea-bass carcass' work great for crab.
As long as you don't care about bananas on the boat, i try and get out every time i can make up an excuse to go. Always happy to take someone...
whatever I take bannanas on every underway, the myth started because of spiders in the 1830's. No one has died from bannana spiders in seventy...
so, there are a few crabbies out there!!!
better than doing yard work........thanks for the report, sounds like I need to go weed through some shakers!

Couldn't seem to post this on initial posting., but its always good to get the youngins out there!!!!
Well, there was this lil boat that has two fellas and a young girl who really wanted to catch some salmon, and rock bass of course! That trip was...
i think you can still fish for salmon at the rock pile just not bottom fishing.
Thanks all, anyone got some numbers for that shark fin or compass rose, please. it is a far cry past the rock pile , that i know.
Haha thanks Mark, didn't mean to be Tacky mojo, but hell i have met you, if your calling me tacky i really gotta do a self evaluation.
Sadly, I have no idea where shark fin is.
I have seen nada on here regarding salmon in la push, salmon university shows a week ago they were being caught at compass rose, which seems to be...
thats the way to have it!
RAT BASTARDS dont carry silver horde here in silverdale anymore....Defiance here i come.
I think i can put together a four person charter group, all military or ex military...any discounts?
Mark, I am working the WTC as a volunteer and want to catch some tuna...i wonder if you have open seats on 8/3
WD, do you have any intell on TUNA in La Push?
So, cross the bar, turn right and troll?
Mark, are you saying that your catching TUNA 30nmi out of westport?

Oh yeah!!! gotta love it, nothing better to become addicted to!!!!
Dang, nice report, how much per person was this!! I am thinking it may be in my near future!
nice fish, good job getting another darn pot out of my down-riggers way!
yep, it was a slow s.o.b. this weekend on the sound, sadly the one big fish I had threw the hook ten feet from the boat......
Nice report, the story was great too!
nice to see some local catching, im out, gonna go catch some now!!!!
I prefer the red rocks, better to get some fishing done then spend the day working in the yard, my priorities are way outta wack.
Wow, Ryley, you sure stirred a pot....anyway, i think you can take away from this is that the perception is what it is. Since WDFW has changed...
Good luck in the classic, ill be watching from the volunteer lines. Make sure you get the operating room number, the teams that use it have...
I guess the only reply would be a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work........

Well Mike, if I ever get up there, we will have to discuss the fishing spots there, for here and from what i hear from other Alaskans, this place...
Im wrong its 1 -13, here is a quick link to just the marine areas https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/erules/saltwater_marine_area_select.j
it is barb less for most places for salmon and it is actually Marine Area 1 - 12 so A7 is marine area 7 by the WDFW saltwater regs.
Mark are you using cut plug? sometimes thats just the only thing that will work. if you can keep the dawgfish off um that is
Ironic how jealous some people get, glad someone is out there keeping the water churned up. congrats to you !!
