    I spend a lot of time on the swim step. Not usually by choice. Typically to shit or untangle 20 yards of braid from a prop or whatever the dong beaters get tangled up in.

    Boat ideas - help me spend money

    Another thing fwiw with a 21’ deep garage you’ll be pretty limited by overall length of a boat on a trailer. My 19’ alumaweld needed a swing tongue to fit in my 23’ garage. That’s after sliding the boat a few inches forward on the trailer and “clearancing” the drywall where my motor hit.

    Twanoh State Park? (Shrimping yesterday)

    I have a twanoh question, never been there as I usually run from Potlatch. Is there plenty of room for a guy to beach his sled when launching alone and waiting? And do they open up before 6:00 on shrimp days?

    Multi colored braid?

    Top shot. Braid color doesn't matter much with enough flouro between it and the fish.

    Would you use Salt Away for your reel?

    Many years of spraying reels with the garden hose after every trip while rinsing the boat off and no problems. I'm pretty hard on gear and have several reels with 10+ years of abuse with a freshwater rinse minimal maintenance in the off season that are still going strong and work as they did...

    Vacuum Sealer Machines

    I have a Westin, don't remember the model couple hundred bucks ish. It has a wider sealing strip than food savers I've had in the past and I've noticed it stays sealed better/longer because of the wider seal. I'm happy with it, going on a couple years. Sealed a lot of fish with it.

    Braid under mono?

    Decided to learn the fg. Will have to test my ability to tie seeing how it holds up throwing spinners and jigs for coho. Not likely to get another tuna trip this year.

    Shimano Shimano tekota baitcaster

    Great reels. I have 5 of the 500 size. Not great to cast though. Mine are mostly used for trolling.

    Where to post discussion topics here again? Westport jetty

    I've caught salmon very close to the jetty and know people who catch salmon casting from other jetties with big spinners, so probably doable. I think it's open till the 22nd.

    Saltwater Area 11 advices?

    Like others have said. Go early and fish the tides. Clay banks on out going tide. Most fish I have caught this year have been between 5 and 7 am. I still fish around the tides when I can. Find the bait ball and get below it. fish will be there. (Probably) don't be afraid to go deep. and troll...

    Duramax help

    i have a beater 01 spare truck that does the same sometimes and it has a leaky injector and possible bad fuel pressure regulator. Leak in fuel system or water in fuel can cause it too. Any codes or check engine light on? Not a mechanic but I've had about every problem possible with that truck.

    Does anyone know if you get in trouble for towing deer around in the bay?

    I've seen them swim a ways before. Never watched one fight the current for so long backtrolling though. Figured I'd do more harm if I tried to duck with it. Just had me wondering what the law was thing looked pretty buoyant.

    Does anyone know if you get in trouble for towing deer around in the bay?

    Out in area 11 today there was a doe swimming and struggling in the current. Thought about trying to tie back towards shore. I thought it was coming from vashon to the clay banks and was getting close so I figured it was almost there. Saw it later as we were pulling up and it eventually turned...
