    Gray Diggers

    Sounds perfect. I eventually want to find a place like that. onX is half the reason I don't NEED to RIGHT NOW. Being able to find access sucked until I figured out onX. Even Washington's go hunt app helped, but was terrible. I actually talked to the onX dudes about a job, but it didn't work...

    WTB apple masher

    I built one using the bucket method that I use when making beer and...even stronger beer. Mine mashes the bucket before it gets juice out of apples. I need a better bucket strategy.

    DIY Solo Public Land Buck

    Nice work! Always nice to get it done early morning. Other people are always variables in the field but It sounds like it worked out for you this time. I was shooting 150 Sierra HPBT Gamekings this year and I found a very similar piece of copper in mine, around 50 grains, after earlier...

    First deer camp

    Hunting with my dad was always the best. I'm taking my girls as soon as they are old enough--frankly, I might take the older one on a ride-along next year. Nice work! Those are good memories to make!

    It's time!

    It was a beautiful area up high, and down low. One more weekend of high buck. I've got some more hunting I need to do from that parking spot before I give up on it. There's so much thick cover that's impossible to hunt, and some rad areas that need to be sat by people more patient than me.

    It's time!

    Spent 2 days in the wilderness for the High Buck hunt. Hiked from 2600-4800 feet in just over 3 miles on Saturday and saw nothing and no sign. Then because of the rain, stayed lower on Sunday, saw a buck and another deer (too dark to see) at 45 minutes before first light and nothing else all...

    Aero Precision M5 AR308

    That's a hell of a price for that rifle! Legal, but paper-work free option: sell everything but the lower receiver as a package deal, then have the buyer go buy a lower without the 1639 paperwork ;)

    It's time!

    Thanks, I'm trying like hell. I figure high buck is the only place that everyone's on equal footing: no private land, no 4 wheelers. And mule deer are so much fun to chase. My plan this year was to spend a week in the mountains above Lake Chelan, but an unexpected job change means I have only...

    Hunter 'pink' now legal!

    I agree so much. My girls would wear pink before orange, and I know at least one of them will be into hunting in the next few years. Also, frankly, I wish they would do the hi-viz yellow/green too--it's just as effective as a safety color and many people already have it.

    Worst Shot Ever..

    I was hunting mule deer for the first time, and in my head, I knew that any shot would be over 200 yards, closer to 3--so I held high when I shot at this buck that was probably closer to 50 yards. Over his back, TWICE. Then to find out that my rifle was another 6-10" high AND right at that...

    Another vote for Edmond's pier. It's the only place that Ive seen people fishing, and catching, from land "consistently". Their tire reefs hold some bottom fish. When I lived in Lynnwood, I'd fish it once or twice a season and usually see one caught, sometimes on kept. Most of the lingcod I...

    Shore Fishing on Orcas Island?

    I spent free-fishing weekend on lopez fising from odlin county park, right on the beach. we played with sanddabs and greenling all day. worms and mussel pieces for the sand dabs (earth worms, night crawlers, whatever you call them) and 1/2 oz bass jigs for the greenling (yes, largemouth bass...

    Boatless Ling Cod Fishing?

    Hey, I'm boatless. I've been trying off and on (during ling season of course) to catch lings off Edmonds pier and finally succeeded thanks to a helpful guy last spring...but it was too small. This year, I should have time to get out and head to better spots... Do these spots exist? What's...

    LURKERS

    how does one know if they are invited or a guest?

    LURKERS

    lurking is awesome. I like to see the reports of what I have no time to chase. I'd totally post a report if I had time to fish, I don't answer questions I don't know the answer to, I don't ask questions I know the answer to, and I don't feel the need to stroke anyone's ego that I don't know...

    Area 10 Lumpy and Crabby

    nicely done! we were on the pier (me and 3 other guys and a kid). We took home limits of 6" or better red rocks and a total of 5 dungies in the super-crabbed area that we could reach from the pier!

    Lurkers: Jump In, The Water Is Warm

    hi, I'm pretty much a lurker. I'm not sure if I've posted in the WA forums, but I posted in the CA forums looking for help for a quick vacation trip. I'll prolly go fishing on Sunday...maybe Saturday...all up in the air, but I have a hall pass from the wife for 1 day this weekend!

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    AAAAAHHHHHH! THIS IS THIS FRIDAY! due to the fact that I'm travelling on thursday night, a long trip is out of the question, so I'm headed out on the city of long beach boat at 7am. I asked what I should bring and the only thing the lady could tell me was "ask on thursday", which wasn't very...

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    I'm not overthinking it that much (ok, I prolly am!) I'm just trying to be prepared with an extra setup or 2 beyond using the bait on the boat! how big are the swim baits? and what size lead heads? what colors?

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    I have a 3 pound hammer that I use when my smaller hammers don't have enough oomph, but I don't think any thing I'd buy at Home Depot is what you are talking about... could you be a bit more specific? :rofl:

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    so how deep are we talking here? 100 feet? 200? 300? *also I was thinking cannon ball/pyramid weights with a brass ring and snap swivels for easy changing

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    ok, one more question (for now) how big of weights should I be packing for drop shot fishing with the bait?

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    rad! thanks a lot! how much line should I be worried about spooling up? oh, and I'll be sure to head home shortly after my fishing trip, just for you! :rofl:

    Gearing up for 1/2 or 3/4 day trips

    Hiya from Seattle! I'll be down there in about a month, and taking a 1/2 or 3/4 day trip. last time I was down there I rented a pole and bought a "tackle pack" which was just hooks and weights. I fished with a dropper loop and the provided bait. I noticed quite a few people using lures and...

    Help and out of towner?

    bump to the top! it looks like san diego isn't going to happen. does anyone have ideas closer to "home" other than dana wharf, which is the only close recommendation so far? Looks like they have 1 3/4 day trip and a few 1/2 day trips that day.

    Help and out of towner?

    ^thanks man, but it looks like that boat will be way south that day. Also, would it be worth it to bring my own reels? Without bringing a 4' suitcase, I don't see how I'd get my salmon/steelhead poles down there, but maybe my packable 6' ugly stick might be able to make the trip. What size...

    greetings from the Pacific Northwest! I'll be headed down your way one of the first weekends in August, and I'm looking to find a 1/2-3/4 day charter of some sort for me and my father-in-law. I went down a couple years ago and took a party boat ride out of Long Beach. It was fun (I didn't...
