Just picked up my 2018 License and there is only 4 lines for Halibut vs the 10 fish on last years catch card!!
Didn’t notice it until I got home.
So is this a back door way to make us buy another catch card, or is it max 4 Fish ??
Anyone else been out lately?
I went out a couple weeks ago and hammered a few. Pretty surprised at the size of the fish. Trying to do my part in increasing outward smolt survival.
But dam, $20 to launch @ Coulon is a bit steep!
kind of crazy to go fishing on a greasy flat day in August and be the only sport boat getting ice & the only sport boat on the grounds.... I think some of you have gotten soft!!
Started @ 46'25 x 125'18, with no love & worked out to 46'29 x125'28

Will throw in my firewood pile too if you want some starter wood.
Curious to hear how the shrimping was for everyone, especially in the areas that were cut back to the new 4 hour season.
I was in the south end, and it was bad... I mean real bad. Pots with single digit shrimp count kind of bad..
I have a feeling I may have been on a place that had already...
1 year old, just a couple skid marks... they'll buff right outLOL

New these are $175.
I'll let this customized one go for...
I just noticed that one of our 3 whopping halibut days (May 6) also looks to also be the same day as the Shrimp opener.. Which is also probably the only shrimp day for MA11, and probably only 1 of 2 days in MA10.
Is it by design that they want to force us to make the decision between...

If the cloud canopy isn't an issue, I'm hoping to get a Chopper Tour. Seems like a fun way to spend a couple of Benjamin's.
Havnt looked into fishing, so...
I'm not sure if what I had was an epidemic or not, but my balls were frequently sticky and made cleanup more of a chore than I wanted. So after tuna season was over I made the decision to have a little surgery to remove the balls. After shedding the the balls, it cleared space to lay some...
I know this is a long shot, but looking for info on a T9.9 motor that was for sale on Craigslist this past weekend. (6/9-6/10)

I know a lot of you have the VacMaster 215's as they seem to be the go to Chamber Vac for those living on the working class budget.
Ive been looking and there is another VacMaster. The VP-112. It's a bit lighter and a bit cheaper than the 215. Anyone have any experience with this one...
wasn't there some people on here using ipads at their 2nd stations serving as plotters/sonar screens

Seems it would be best to be waterproof while out there.
Ive got an older ipad2...

Seems as if the internet fishing is slow, so I'll throw up some boat porn. Not nearly as impressive as all the other build threads on here lately, but some of us have to settle on a more Spartan bare bones fishing platform.
I decided last summer I was going to part ways with my 24' Hewescraft...
So I'm doing a little upgrading this year and will be running Twins (Yamaha I-4 200's).
Looking to see what everyone runs for props on their Yami 150 or 200 Four Strokes when running twins
I'm hoping to get the right props the first time, so hopefully I can get some wisdom from those of you...

Looking to buy a guide seat for a sled. I can't find the welded aluminum ones with rubber feet anywhere in Oly.. Anyone know who has em?? Looking for a close match to the one pictured with the rubber feet. Used would be good too.
Anyone happen ho have one laying around they are willing to part with?? Picked up a little Jet Sled that has an X-125, but they broke off the ducer. Not really sure how well the unit works so I don't want to invest any real $$ into a transducer for a 5 year old Fish Finder. Hoping someone...
Anyone got good numbers? I havnt seen a good SST in weeks!!!
Usually we head west until we either hit a color or temp break, or see Butt Bubbles on the sonar. Ive got a Tin boat and Ive heard rumor that they tend to peel apart in the open ocean because they get pounded apart by the huge NW...

Is Someone Missing a cut plug Herring from MA10???
I found it last night fishing the evening tide swing.
It was a little beat up, but still pretty fresh!
Found the Cutplug in the belly of this cookie cutter 12# fish down 80' on the rigger
He was quite fond of my Hoochie Q-Cove green...
On our last baitstop yesterday I threw the GoPro on the gaff and hung it off the boat to capture the action. Some of the video was pretty cool to watch
We only needed a fish or 2 to plug the boat, and had just a handfull of baits left. So the plan was to pull them in with a troll fish, then...

Stacy and I ... Yes, just the 2 of us... Since none of our other "ho's" wanted to step up to the plate and crew.....:finger: Departed Westport...
Couldnt pass up the 3' @ 14 second forcast to bang out one more in close salmon trip before stowing the Skinny rods..
Fished South for the 4th trip in a row and the results were the same as before. Find some bait, and feed them a color they want and its not long before you start banging out...
Hit Westport on Monday with Steve (steve Ericcson) and stacy (Samohr) looking for some close in Salmon action.
We didnt have to go far to get into fish. The fleet and us were only having to go a few miles out to find em
The action wasnt red hot, but it was steady, and eventually after...

I live in the Lacey Area
If you are a fisherman or a hunter here in Washington, I am looking for input on what you think the WDFW can do to better make their lands and or waters more usable/accessible for you or someone you know who has a disability.
What sort of challanges have you had in accessing the outdoors on...
I shot a little video this past Hali day with a GoPro camera. Pretty slick little device that should be fun to have aboard later this summer when we're fishing livies for tuna in the clear water.
I still have a long way to go in knowing how to use the thing, but its pretty cool to be able to...

Ive read every page of these last few posts on the Fishing and boatrides to the Prison Island. Im trying to digest what this means now for offshore fishing in PV.
Ive never been there so forgive my ignorance of the area. But I'll be there fishing next week for the first time.
With this new...
Myself and 6 others are planning a trip to PV the last week of March. Would like to fish two days sometime betweek 3/29-4/1. Targeting big tuna one day, then one day inshore for Roosters, and anything else thats willing to bite..
Anyone have any recommendations for a boat that can run 6...
Waited for a decent weather window and favorable tides to give this squidding from the boat thing another try.. A couple weeks ago we tried it up near Redondo and the weather turned NASTY. Long story short, we got our butts kicked and only got 4 squid..
Fast forward to yesterday... We roll the...
After getting our butts kicked last week on Laurances Grady, I couldnt end the 2010 year with a long boatride on crappy water and only a couple albies and a coho to show for it... Sooooooo

Ive been reading the reports from this past weekends fishing offshore and I see a re-occuring theme in many of the posts.
I see lots of people who are pissed off about other boats comming to where they are killing fish. People pissed off that somsone made a call with "their numbers" and...
Anyone else going to give it a shot? We're trailering down there tonight, leaving at daylight headed SW below the 46 line.
Having a couple boats working as a group might help with the catching.
It's GAME ON!! Tuna Blood was spilled at Westport today.
Samohr, Wdlfbio, Core Killer and myself decided we couldnt stand to see those Oregon Boys catching tuna any longer. The call was made to go Prospecting out of westport. Just us and a couple of Commie Salmon boats out on the pond today...
What a great weekend to spend on the water!
Sat was Bug day. The Canal is still putting out limits for us in short order. 1 hour soaks have been providing between 80-200+ per pot..
Sunday was my first run of the year for Butts at westport. By the time we got to Westport, we had the whole...
spent a couple hours on the banks of the Cowlitz River on Saturday. Water had just dropped from 14,000cfs and was still dropping when i was there until bottoming at about 8,000cfs. It had the fish pretty worked up and the fishing was good.
My favorite colored jig was doing some damage. Its...
Had a free day today so with the forcast for Sunny sky's and no wind the call was made to Soak some Pots in MA13 for some Dungees. I dug thru the freezer and found a couple left over bags of 2 year old Loins and a couple salmon fillets from 08' that were buried deep in the freezers abyss...

you can definately tell that summer is drifting away when you wake up at 0400 to get your day started. Theres that little chill in the morning air that lets you know you are alive.
For me that marks the ending of my offshore adventures, but marks just the begining of fall and winter fishing...
made a late run for Tuna today. Left westport after the morning slack, got out to Blue 59.5 degree water....
Good news!! Its moving in!! 46.30 x 125.02 is where we got our first fish. Thats about 20 miles closer than where TT got his fish on Sunday
Most of our fish were peanuts, and they...
I know there has got to be a couple of you that are going to make the Tuna run on Sat.... That small weather window looks like the only day to make the effort to go out..
The rampage got em... Which one of you is going to be "the ones" to get the ball rolling on the sport fleet???
Had until Noon to kill today, so I thought I'd run down to the Cow and do a little sidedrifting. Ive had a few good days down there over the past few weeks, but it was pretty slow today.
Only saw one other fish boated by Mike Sexton while we were there.
We boated a nice Chrome Hatchery...
Im thinking of switching from my Yamaha 703 Single Binnacle over to the KE-4. I have a second station steering station in the cockpit and running Dual KE-4's is a solution to get throttle controls at both steering stations. As it sits now, I just have steering at the second station
I spoke to Westport Seafood this afternoon about the availability of live bait from here on out.

She also said they are only going to stay open as long as the...
