    Some good Puget Sound news - massive herring spawn

    I don't know about other areas in the sound but we've had crazy predatory feeding action going on in greater Port Madison Bay (north end of Bainbridge, Suquamish, Indianola area) due to a massive herring spawn, apparently largest seen in 50 years. Eel grass on all the local beaches are covered...

    Suzuki 20 hp EFI kicker on hydraulic bracket

    One of my commercial bottom paint clients recently purchased a fairly new Munson landing craft that came with a 20hp Suzuki fuel injected kicker which he mentioned that he was planning on removing as his intended use for the boat doesn't include needing the engine or its hydraulic bracket.

    Why wouldn't this be a great boat to have in Westport?

    No affiliation, saw this on craigslist and thought it could be a candidate for someone wanting to move up. Too slow maybe? Too old? Too much hassle to see & move? Seems like a nice boat for the $$. (907) 362-1486

    Anyone driving Portland to Seattle next few days? Need something hauled . . .

    Its a long shot but a chance for somebody to make a few hundred bucks if anyone is heading north with an empty pick-up. I bought a dust collector machine down there that I either need to go get myself or hire someone to bring it up which most likely works best if you are coming north anyways...

    Jigging squid from a boat?

    Found a wayward shrimp pot

    Was cruising southbound out in the middle of the sound today and spotted a yellow float. Stopped, pulled it up (it was empty btw) and brought it on board. Had a name on the float, Leo Gleason, Manchester. If anyone happens to know Leo drop me a PM. I tried 411 but no listing.
