    Well ... trying to stay-above-the-fray, but I can’t. G-Spot is correct in stating that the State “self insures” some of their assets. Some of you seem to think that there’s some sort of correlation between fucked-up fish management policy, bad government, and a sunken patrol boat. News flash...

    Derelict Crab gear fee legislation

    Hey Gary, I'm sure your a nice guy ... not trying to get in a pissing match with you. OK ... you're not advocating a conversion to a socialist/commie regime. How is the State artificially controlling the price of crab? Those licenses were sold at one time, for a fee, allowing fisherman...

    Derelict Crab gear fee legislation

    Plus, Since we're talking about crab right now (and not other resources) ... I believe that crab populations in North Puget Sound are very healthy. Yes, it is cyclical, but current management practices seem to be working just fine (allocation/quota issues aside). I believe, theoretically...

    Derelict Crab gear fee legislation

    Non-tribal commercial Dungeness (Puget Sound) crab permits are limited entry - and sell for close to $70,000 each these days. In some commercials areas, it takes two permits to fish 100 pots. The $300.00 figure you threw out there is probably the annual renewal fee (my Salmon Charter license...

    Kitsap Chapter CCA Banquet and Auction Mar 27, 2010

    Chuck, FYI ... Your banquet scheduled for March 27th is the first day of the Anacortes Salmon Derby - which will be attended by approx. 1000 anglers. Not to be presumptuous ... but, I can't help but think that the conflicting dates could impact your event's attendance. Jay Field Anacortes...

    NOAA Extends Public Comment Period

    I think Lynne Barre and Donna Darm (NOAA NW Regional Office) deserve a lot credit for putting the brakes on this thing. Hopefully, they"ll include the stakeholders, i.e recreational anglers, non-tribal commercials, kayakers, whale watch charter operators, enforcement, WDFW, etc. - when...

    San Juan Hawgs

    Jeff, Heard some third hand reports of a few fish at Hein Bank. Haven't heard anything about Eagle Point. As much as I enjoy a boat ride and some different scenery ... I can't make myself drive over these quality fish to go find fish on the outside. Jay

    Planning A TRIP

    Check out Washington Park in Anacortes. Nice campsites, good launch (on a zero tide plus) and only 10 minutes from town. It's on the west end of the island (no ferry boat), and fairly convenient to a number of fishing and crabbing opportunities. Jay

    San Juan Hawgs

    Fishing continues to be extraordinary in Rosario Strait. Haven't heard of too many small fish caught. We went two for three on my neighbor's boat this morning. Had a pair of twenties before noon. Ronzob had one nice fish (est. 20#) - and Driver and friend Karl had two in the low to...

    SJ's or EB July 4th Weekend

    Tough call to drive over fish in Rosario Strait to run all the way to Hein Bank. The west side of San Juan Island happens a little later - usually in August. Last year, it was a bust. Andy - I don't usually fish Obstruction Pass in a crowd - although I was in there during the Bellingham...

    SJ's or EB July 4th Weekend

    Hard to say about the sharks. I'm sure they'll be there (always are) - some years are worse than others. They are a nuisance, but they're part of the system, there for some reason, and I always release them unharmed. Over the last few years, I find myself reluctant to fish anything but a cut...

    SJ's or EB July 4th Weekend

    Where the fuck is Elliot Bay ... and who the hell is Elliot? Man, going to Seattle to fish Salmon (when you're close to the San Juans) is like taking sand to the beach. Futile, if you know what I mean. The first two to three weeks in July has been great the past few years. Low water is...
