    Thank you USCG and Cape Dissapointment

    While talking to a couple of the USCG crew after the tow, they informed us they train all the time for this but this was the roughest condition they have ever had to hookup a tow rope in. Seeing this process take place firsthand was extremely impressive.

    Ilwaco tuna report

    It was a very good day, spotting jumpers and fish boiling at the boat this early in the season was shocking. We could have easily plugged the boat if we would've been iced up for it. Fresh tuna for dinner and a few cold IPAs completed the day! Back to salmon mode.

    illwaco labor day tuna

    Johnny, Our bait went quick Sat in Ilwaco, we took 4 scoops, 3 of us fishing. They were giving small scoops and the bait was large so they went fast. It didn't help that our bait was lethargic very few strong swimmers. Hoping for better this weekend.

    Carking question

    Each quarter, one at a time. Also the colder the tuna the better. It's easier to cark the following day after it has chilled on ice overnight. The tuna in Mikes video looks perfect.

    Tuna Bleeding Knife

    Food Sealer

    Lapush Cleaning Tables

    Thanks Kerry. I remember you saying something about the cleaning station, just wasn't sure if it was good or bad. I thought I was done with the Halibut but I just had to give it one more try. I'm after that big one that got away!! :2gunsfiring_v1:

    Lapush Cleaning Tables

    Thanks Ken, I'll clean your boat while you clean my fish. I should see you there. I'm fishing with Dave "tracker". Noticed the low tide, I'm thinking it would be good idea to get the boat in the night before. I imagine that launch is useless when the water level drops.

    For divers or others more informed than I...

    The PADI Open water class certifys you to 60ft. That's where the 60' limits come from on your boat dives. If you have I believe 10 dives and you take an advanced open water class, you are certified to 100. I'm guessing your asking because of the Neah Bay Closure area. Matt
  248. M

    For divers or others more informed than I...

    When you are rec diving, you typically stay around 30-40 ft. That's where much of the interesting sea life is located here in WA. 100ft fits in the deep water diving classification, I did 110ft once in a advanced deep dive class in Puget Sound, you barely have enough air in a standard sized tank...
