    New boat for me and a few questions for you!

    :boobies:This past month I picked up a (new to me) 26 north river. Found this baby sitting on a lake in Montana with a total of 103 hours of use. This replaces a 1990 23’ Olympic hardtop that is listed in the classified section. My new boat came set up well however I'm looking for some real...

    1990 23' Olympic

    For sale The interior of the cabin is in pristine shape. It has a sink, alcohol stove, port potty, Lowrance 10” color chart/sonar, Raymarine radar, an Alaska bulkhead, and Red Dot heater to keep you warm plus room in the V-berth to sleep two. The table also drops down to make a bench seat or a...

    I can’t stop laughing!:rofl: Thanks guys, I needed a good one today. I only stand 5' tall and this barely legal lingcod towers over me.

    120ft rule for bottomfish

    I interpreted their message differently if yoiu were fishing for both on the same day; I thought they said fish for Halibut first then fish for lings! It is not ok to have Lings in the box if you are fishing over 120’, but it is ok to have halibut in the box while fishing for lings under...

    Tomic Plugs

    I buy my direct from Tomic! Don&#8217;t hold them to this, but they will often send some type of free bee. Such as a newly created color, one of their spoons, etc&#8230; Also tell them where you are fishing and they are likely to know which colors work best for that area.

    Great report. That sardine in the photo is more than likely a pilchard, a mature sardine. When you find those the bellies it is time to break out the big spoons and plugs! Most years pilchards are abundant on the West Coast of Vancouver Island and over the years I have taken a black sharpie...

    Saltwater Sekiu Halibut Report or "Max & Dom's Excellent Adventure"

    You got to love it when the kids catch fish, but I have a question for Dad. Why is Dom not wearing a life jacket? Washington state law requires that all kids 12 years old and under wear a life jacket while on board a boat that is under 19 feet in length
