    Swiftsure / Neah Bay

    can't speak to the entire oregon coast, but a lot of in/nearshore salmon fishing focuses on the top of the water column and/or shallow waters, where a rigger might be more trouble than it's worth.

    Looking for a slip, or two, in WP weekend of 7/23-24

    I've got spots taken care of - one through a BD brother, one through the marina. I was just saying that the marina no longer allows people to simply use a leaser's spot without also paying westport for the privilege. So they're getting paid twice Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tuna were caught out of Oregon

    Yea, that was poorly phrased. The tip-top of the dorsal fin had a rounded, instead of sharp apex. No clue what it was. While 10' is a rough guess made in rough seas, and blues can get up to 12', it definitely looked much, much bigger than any blue i've come across.

    Tuna were caught out of Oregon

    Besides the giant pod of dolphin just past the pile, we saw either the largest damn blue shark i've ever seen, or another shark species at the C. About 10' in length, and came about 20' from the boat, slowly cruising on the surface w/ dorsal fin exposed. Didn't see a long tail like a thresher...

    Halibut Loops and Leaders

    If you're spending $10+ on a spreader bar, you should tell that retailer to go fuck themselves.

    Looking for - Hali Rod holders

    I like my Orcas. Rock solid, and the locking mount means you're not going to accidentally yank the holder out with the rod regardless of how hard you pull. Also i'm selling 3 new orca/locking mount sets. :)

    Braid and Release Clips??

    that works too. i prefer the mono since it goes through guides/levelwind without issue.

    Braid and Release Clips??

    if you don't want to worry about knots and splices and topshots and weak links, just tie a small piece of mono around/on top of the braid itself. whatever knot you want - two overhands, a few half-hitches, whatever. just make sure you leave a 1" or so tag end of mono, and attach your release...

    Free bilge pump

    This thing - It came in a lot of fishing gear I recently purchased. Looks to be in good shape. No clue if it works, and I've got no use for it or means to test it. Pick up in Queen Anne, Seattle.

    Bulk sardines

    Most asian markets will have them dirt cheap. Uwajimaya is good, but can be a bit expensive. I've done well at Lam's on King St.

    WTB- Big-azz Mustad treble hooks

    http://www.seamar.com/ has some monster trebles. their website inventory is rarely updated. best to call beforehand. they mostly sell to commercial fishermen, and their on-the-shelf stuff is generally wholesale priced.

    Vintage, unused salmon trolling spoons

    Got quite a few old but unused salmon trolling spoons. Asking $2.50 each, would rather sell in bulk and give discount. I think there's 56 total if my count is correct. No hooks on any of them, but all rigged with swivels in fine condition. Row 1, Left: Egg Wobbler #2 (4) - some...

    THUG!

    Oh, don't get me wrong. He's a hack, a race-baiter, and a tax cheat. But you asked "has he mentioned the killing of the two minority NYPD officers?," and the answer is yes. He immediately condemned it unconditionally.
  427. bdrlgion

    THUG!

    There are plenty of reasons to not like the guy, but he pretty quickly and clearly condemned the coldblooded murders in unconditional terms: "I am outraged at the killing of 2 police officers in Brooklyn. That is why we stress non-violence as the only way to fight for justice. An eye for an...

    Columbia Gale Warning Bib and Parka / Jacket

    I received them as a gift, have no need for them, Columbia doesn't do refunds. I looked at the tags and used that as guidance. I'm open to offers, of course. Or, G-Spot, you can have em both for $425. :)

    Elliott Bay squid

    They're too fresh and delicious for bait, in my opinion. They're best used as food, especially since frozen squid at the asian market, which makes fine bait, is dirt cheap.

    Tuna wide open

    I swear those fish were moving from boat to boat. Most of our day in that area was spent as such: nothing for 5-10 minutes, then instantaneous double or triple. Then put a few more in. Then dead for no longer than 5-10 minutes. Rinse, repeat. But we (and a few other boats, it seemed) got lucky...
