    It was a great day, turned bad

    Merinos is doing the processing at their cost, not donating it as the cost is not menial. Here is the most recent summary (yesterday) that I have been provided: **This is an estimate and by no means final. 8799 lbs donated 9620 cans Cost per can $1.36 Estimated Processing Cost $13083

    It was a great day, turned bad

    As of this last Saturday, they were shooting to have all processing done by end of this week, per the owner. And they are awaiting labels, and once labeled, can be delivered to the coastal food banks. Great news!

    It was a great day, turned bad

    Per Mission Outdoors Voicemail : "Northwest harvest never sent fish back to the people (those in need) of Westport. As a result, we decided to cut them out of the processing and pay for it directly in order to give back to the Westport community. Processing costs are $14K". My thoughts...

    Tuna Predictions...

    There are swords off our coast, no doubt. The instant gratification approach of WA albacore fishing does not lend itself to (most) fishermen playing the Sword game. Albacore is, for the most part a 2 dimensional playing field, where as Swords are 3 dimensional. However, I will say that a...

    Hard to know what's doing on the tuna front

    Your June/July observation is correct. In August, tuna numbers went downhill and stayed rock bottom for about 3-4 weeks in 2016. If you search, you'll see simliar discussions and then the whole Westport vs. Ilwaco debate. We made tuna fishing great again towards the end of August and put 47...

    ?? Trolling Tomic Plugs for Black Mouth ??

    I pull the pins and run the line through the plug. This allows the plug to slide up the line when you hook up and the fish can't use the plug as leverage to get the hook out of his mouth. With the big Mustad 95170 stuck in his face, you rarely lose!

    Here's another key to tying leaders: When you are tying the egg loop, the first set of wraps can go on tight. You want the second set of wraps to stay as loose as possible without the wraps uncoiling off the shank of the hook. The reason for this: when you pull your line through, you don't...
