If you foresee an Airmar transducer being needed in your future, get it NOW. I received memo's from 2 manufacturers today that Airmar has informed them they have run out of parts to assemble most of their transducers. This is the memo from one company.
"Unfortunately, due to the continued...
Hi Gang. The supply chain of canning jars and lids is still sketchy and intermittent.
Fred Meyer had a big display of canning jars, including pints and half pints, including wide mouth. Prices are about 1/3 higher than pre-panicdemic @FM. 14.99 for a case of wide mouth half pints.
Hi guys. I had to run to the Poulsbo Walmart this evening around 8pm. There is a boat / RV storage at Finn Hill and 303.
I noticed it because someone was dropping off a cabin boat, and i always notice boats! 😉 LED lights on arch were on while they were putting stuff from boat to truck
Getting ready for more SPJ next season so started tying assay hooks.
Got Hitena 225# Kevlar, Mustad ultrapoint hooks, krystal flash, Coats and Clarks glow in the dark thread and uv epoxy.
Just getting started, so my quality will improve. Cats can be at other end of the house but single can...
I am coming up with my Christmas deals. Input on the following:
Tanacom 750's with or without a rod?
Shrimp pots by themselves, or with the lead line, bait box and buoy?
Avets with or without a rod?
I just placed a purchase order with Garmin and ordered a case of the biosoy fluid for TR1 autopilots. Garmin is officially out and there will be no more from Garmin.
I have four bottles left in the house.
Is anybody traveling from Ilwaco to Seattle area this week?
Need 12 Clamminator clam guns brought from ilwaco and i can meet anywhere from Oly To Everett. Dale will meet to drop off in Ilwaco. I will meet you wherever your detonation is.
With Alaska are flying out of Everett, and said to be resume in flights to San Diego soon, I was thinking jumping on a plane Friday after work, getting on a boat in fishing tuna for the weekend.
Shogun was one of the boats that I was looking at. I guess it is Tomahawk now. Hopefully this gets...
Heads up if you have pre 2011 Cannon Mag 10, 15 and 20HS Downriggers. They called today and said they will no longer support these models. We tried to order all the circuit boards they have left. They only had one. They let is go down to the wire before announcing it.
Rumor has it that...
If anybody down at the ocean has Cannon downriggers that need to go into the shop, let me know and I can pick them up Thursday and bring them to Russ at Harbor Marine.
I have clout (or at least I would like to think I do in my mind) and can get you to the front of the line.
Have any of you mofo's found this to be the most confusing documentation ever to exist? So is there a new way to do bait from now on? Do us sporties get to drive up to the bait dock still? I am really confused.
RECEIVING LIVE BAIT: Each charter office with assigned moorage in the Marina...
This happened yesterday on the boat I fish with out of the OBX. They saw the jumpers, trolled towards them, turned into them and 8 YFT's on at one time. I think even if you don't have FB you can still see the vid.

Some of my peeps from Sno King PSA and myself were up fishing with BonChovy Charters yesterday. Jason is a class act. If you get a chance, hook up with him for some fishing. We fished for winter kings (blackmouth south of the border), prawns (shrimp south of the border) and crabs (same thing...
Scromboid poisoning! Nasty stuff. This is why you need to chill your tuna ASAP after being caught and bled. Histamine production from the spoiling process that starts right away cannot be killed by cooking or freezing once the process has started.
You can turn a cucumber into a pickle but...
I love this live feed. Watching the tuna swim, the dodo's, etc. is awesome. If you are just needing to see pure goodness...this link is it. I am going to take a weekend field trip down to watch the live feedings of the BFT.
Enjoy. Hopefully this can help you make it through to next July...

Okay guys., i am looking for another tuna trip or two before winter. have my own boat so not looking for a boat ride. here is what i can bring to the game:
4 live bait rods (rain shadow and trevala mix) with accurate 2 speed reels spooled with 50# braid and 30# fluoro top shot.
Throwing this out there...i am looking for an old bent butt rod and an old 50 or 80 series reel.
This isn't for fishing but my workouts for fishing. I used my arm bike, free weights, and weight stack machine for my first giant blue fin trip last year. it worked as i was able grind for 54...
If there are any newbs to tuna fishing out there like myself, yes, there really is a bait stop etiquette!
I got this curse of a bug and have tried to learn as much about this sport as I can. I grew up in the era of you are going to participate in a sport, then be a sportsman.
I am grateful...
Hi guys. SnoKing PSA is fishing salmon Saturday and Sunday at Westport.
Saturday evening we will be having a get- together Bbq at Murph's place. Club is providing burgers and fixings and it is potluck sides and desserts.
If you would like to join us, PM me and let me know how many you are...
OBX fishermen have been experiencing shark predation on their catches since NMFS banned shark fishing on the east coast.
It is as bad, or worse, as our seals. A boat transiting through an area will cause a shark boil behind a boat. You have to pull up and leave an area, try to get your gear...
Tuna time! Come to our June 12th meeting to learn from seasoned charter captain Mark Youngblood. Mark has earned a reputation over 20 years for putting his customers on fish and running a safe boat with top notch gear. Check Mark out on his web page: http://www.markyoungbloodsportfishing.com
Got my first BFT last week down in the OBX! Trained on an arm bike during the winter getting ready for the crank.
This is something I have wanted to do and last year Del Stephens hooked me up with one of the boats he fishes BFT.
Headed down to Manteo NC to fish with Capt Barry Sawyer and mate...
