    Any salmon reports for Westport this weekend?

    We landed 4 kings out of 8 on Saturday and 3 out of 4 on Sunday. Fished the south beach from closure to Willipa. If you put your time in there are fish to catch closer than area 3. If you want fast and furious head north.

    Multi season tags

    It might save you money. Once you figure out the archery thing you will sell your guns. It will ruin gun hunting. You will never get the rush with a gun that you get with a bow and arrow. Something about looking in their eyes and knowing you just out smarted them. I thought buck fever was a...

    CQ Thursday ??

    If anyone hasn’t got heir limit of bottomfish and they fish the ocean its because they haven’t gone fishing. Its not because they haven’t had the opportunity. I can’t remember when we have had such a liberal season. The guys in the straights have had their work cut out for them.

    AK salmon fishing

    Single hoooks are far better. You will snag less and have a better hook set. Trebles work if that is all you have but you will break off more gear on the bottom, where as the single hook will skip off the bottom. I lose less fish with siwash hooks.

    Jury is still out

    The digitrol cannons use magnets on the side of the reel to count the depth down and up. This allows you to use braid with auto up and has a soft stop. I set mine so the ball stops below the water line. They are much nicer than the Mag 5/10 series.

    Swing Tongue- How Heavy a Load?

    Looks like that surge brake actuator coupler is very long. If it is over two feet you may be able to replace that coupler with a fixed coupler and change your brake actuator to electric over hydraulic. I can't tell what your clearances are from the picture. This solution would also change the...

    Suggestion on how to safely release medium to larger halibut.

    I use a Tee handled hook remover instead of a gaff. Use the same technique Patrick Walker explained. It will work on all fish. It has an 1 1/2" dia handle with a strong stiff stainless rod about 12-18" long. At the end it is S shaped so yuo can push the hook out of it deep in the throat of a...

    Anybody salmon fishing Westport (UPDATE REPORT ADDED)

    I'm with you lucerunner. If running hardware I only run one hook. I find I have a much better hook to land ratio with the side benefit of very very low release mortality rate. If I'm on the beach and running bait I will cut the leader if the hooks are deep or I think I will kill the fish trying...

    What to do with used Pipe Jigs

    I salt away my gear after every trip and spray the metal with WD-40 then wipe down the excess with a rag just like you would do with your tools after using them in the rain. I don't have any rust or corrosion issues. I use my gear until Someone donates it to davey jones locker.

    Canning question

    I'm sure you have got the answer by now, but ultimately it's about the amount of btu's going in versus qty of water/food and it's temperature. At sea level I t only takes 1 btu/hr per pound of water to raise the water temperature 1 degree but 977 btu/lb water to change it's state from liquid to...

    Fishing Chinook Salmon - THE COMMERCIAL WAY!

    NWFishaman-- if the digitrol cannons use magnetic spool sensors to count the number of revolutions you spool turns as it is going up and down for automatic operation whereas the mag 5 and 10 series use the cable to conduct current through the water for automatic operation.

    Any electricians?

    the Kiln is using electric resistance heat. It will draw what it is rated for as soon as it is turned on. If you use too small of conductors your wire will turn into heaters and hopefully the breaker will trip. You run the risk of burning down your shop. Do it right and run the rated wire and...
