    Dry brine smoked salmon

    FYI Benjamin, 99% of 'Kosher salt' has nothing in it but salt. No Iodine, no anti-caking crap, nothing. That's why it's 'Kosher'. I mentioned I only use Mediterranean sea salt for similar reasons. It's got nothing else in it and I think it tastes better. Eric, here's why I prefer the dry...

    Sand Dabs Area 2 ??

    Regs this year are pretty straight forward. Fish and catch in one area, land in another is ok, but don’t stop in the second area, and don’t think you can double up on take in one day.

    Dry brine smoked salmon

    Ryan, I do mine pretty much the same; I prefer Mediterranean sea salt, and I season with black pepper, garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes and ginger powder, while it's in the drying (pellicle) phase. Adding spices in the brine.. they just seem to get lost, IMO.

    Saturday Tuna Takers post up

    Yeah, and that is the zone forecast, which is always worse. However. I always have to consider my low gunnels and small boat out there.

    Saturday Tuna Takers post up

    Still on the fence. 6-7 at 12 sec plus a little wind, that could be a long 40 miles in my little boat.

    BD Salute

    A guy passed me a while back on hwy 18. Black truck hauling a big load of wood in a trailer. I noticed he had TWO BD stickers. Two!! So I caught up, waved, and saluted. He looked at me like I had screwed is only child and gave me the angry one finger response! I laughed, and then tapped my back...

    Processing tuna catch?

    Bring a big ass cooler or two, ice, and youtube how to cark them. It's pretty easy. After that, I'd suggest eating/freezing the top loins and canning the bottom ones. The carcasses make excellent crab bait as well.. Borrow or buy a pressure cooker if you don't have one. If this is going to be...

    Watch out Salmon and tuna fishermen

    You could just sum it up like this Laurence. That's a bunch of bullshit meant for someone else. :D

    Toilets for sale or trade - but not rent

    1/2 pound of tannerite in each would be fun. Just sayin'

    HOLY &@$& THAT WAS FUN

    And I thought-- or heard, in your own voice--"I don't like tuna" PFFFFFFT. BTW. Looks like you had a blast in LaPush!

    1/4 turn shut off valve

    Howard, I'm pretty sure that's a cast aluminum bodied valve. With a petcock to drain it in the winter.

    1/4 turn shut off valve

    I'm just going to toss this out there... I'd never put a shitty plastic valve on a seacock. Too easy to have something come loose and snap it off. Sched 40, 80, or otherwise. Further, having dealt with many of them in my line of work-- the seals suck and they stick-- causing them to snap and...

    Thanks for the summary Laurence and others. Nothing on the schedule for the 15th of August, so setting that day aside.

    Anyone Headed to Fisheries Supply?

    I just put in a Kodiak pf-22gal tank. The 500 gph was perfect. Fisheries was the only place in town that had one in the store.

    Looking to borrow 4lb Cod Weight Mold

    I've got a 3lb, if you want it. I'm just down the hill from you in Auburn. I've fished 500-600', with 3 lbs and 65lb braid and been fine. If the wind is kicking up, keeping the kicker in reverse solves the drift issues. 300' and four pounds sounds like someone is yanking your chain.

    Looking for a good, lightly used powerhead or used engine

    I have an older oil injected merc 2 stroke sitting on a pallet. It needs a little work-- The cavitation plate has a chunk out of it (could be welded or other)and I think it needs a stator. I say that because it was missing a bit when I took it off the boat and I had replaced the original with an...

    ((CONCLUSION)) **UP DATED**Boat trailer towing/tracking poorly

    How long is the tongue ? A short one would account for the high weight issue, and they certainly won't track as well. My last trailer-- Initially purchased it under the boat without brakes. It towed poorly from a lack of tongue weight, and an obvious weight distribution problem with too much on...

    Marking your line

    Don't they make colored line for this sort of shit? Oh wait, they do! http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5336488034&icep_item=191473059663 The line is color changes at given intervals. Look, problem solved.

    Neah Bay Salmon report please?

    The NOAA forecast changes daily! Now it looks like little wind but 7' swell on a tight interval. I'll hope it's better tomorrow. Either way, heading that way wed night and we'll see from there. Sea'scape (think sea escape) on 68. Hope to see some red and white stickers on the water. :finger:

    Dinner treat tonight

    I'm going to add the harp. I went out yesterday from Westport and we got our kings. I did a good, but not great job of filleting them. My 18# king's harp (the backbone and ribs) yielded 14 oz. of (cooked) very tasty albeit broken meat. I opted to put some of Tom Douglas's rub on it and put it...

    Tuna Monday Who's Going?

    The temp is there but the clear blue is a ways off yet. Regardless, I'm getting my (real, not cobbled together, piece of shit) bait tank Sunday and installing it next week. Looking for a window after the fourth!

    Wanted: small engine repair

    So a few things to try. Change both plugs. Remove, drain and clean the carb bowl. Make sure not to screw up the little gasket that goes on top of it. Remove the air cleaner and run it without it. If it's the least bit damp (and why I asked about it sitting outside) replace it. If it still...

    Wanted: small engine repair

    I'm pretty sure I could fix it, Model # etc. would be helpful. I'm going to assume you neglected to drain the gas from the carb bowl. Was it stored outside? Wait, and now you're just thinking about watering your grass? All of our irrigation systems have been up for at least a month... . . ...
