Why does G-spot continue to post on our threads. You’re not even part of our Washington community. Don’t insult our community. You aren’t part of it. You will never be part of it. No one wants you to be part of it. Why is winter so long? Who bought new boats at the boat show?
Poke poke poke...
Here we go!!
I did like it. Funny shit.
As for Scott, 1. He’s being honest. 2. He’s not the one who owes the money. 3. At least he is conveying the concerns of the group. 4. I believe this will lead to a quicker solution to rectify this flawed process of relying on NW Harvest to verify fish...
Wait. Now I want to know what happens to the fish that we donate. Does NW Harvest do anything with it? Why is it still in the freezer? Are the fish we donate just getting thrown out?
All the Scandinavian countries serve akvavit. The key is to find the ones with spices you like or have your wife make you Snaps. My wife is currently making our traditional Snaps favorites for the holidays. In Swedish, akvavit means “water of life” aka Gasoline. LOL.
I only follow the topic lightly since we fund some salmon recovery efforts. If you want to read more:
I think they are...
Making a slurry doesn't reduce the amount of ice you bring. It's a way to cool them fast. Yes, add in water softener salt and pixy dust which magically makes the slurry really fucking cold.
Add just enough water to the tote so the ice just starts to move freely, not watery. Move the slurry fish...
YouTube creators don’t make much money or any money until you start getting gigs as an influencer for brands. Brands pay you to make videos endorsing products. You need to have a million followers before that comes a reality. You can make $10-20k a video.
I haven’t made videos in awhile...
60 teams @ $500 is $30,000. Assuming ice and bait are donated, i’m not seeing a profit in the business model above. The price per head on food is around $40 which is high for what was served.
Definitely a gentleman’s tournament. I might suggest a party Friday night in the tent with beer...
You're creative.What about welding up 48" kill bag holders out of aluminum and mount them to engine covers. Fill with ice. Then use the 1/2 tote full of ice to slurry.
Slurry fish, then put in kill bags. Between bags and 1/2 tote you'd be good for 35+ fish. Good balance of weight midship...
Last time we were in Sweden some cousins brought a can for us to try. We sat on the porch and had it with crackers, onion, sour cream, dill and potato. The can was opened underwater in a 5 gallon bucket while everyone stood 10ft away. :D
Go with what’s she’s comfortable with. A rod and reel would be fun to watch on those long boring days of rowing. Swimbaits are safe. Assume that she’s not going to want to deal with processing a lot of fish in the middle of the ocean. My Viking brothers would salt and dry fish along with other...
Seeing jumpers is only one part of the game, being able to slide in on a cooperative school is the other. You can see jumpers all day and not touch a fish. Of course, that's what I've heard...that never happens to us. Huh, @TonyG
I think Pat covered mpg already. Expect 1 mpg and love every minute of it. You don’t buy a Coldwater for fuel economy, you buy it for fishability and the fact it will always bring you home with a smile on your face.
Then to cover their every changing minds, they print this in the rules:
20 Fathom Restriction BOTTOMFISH (check the WDFW website atwdfw.wa.gov or call (360) 902-2700 in April 2019 for effective dates): Fishing for or possession of BOTTOMFISH (except LINGCOD, SABLeFISH, and PACIFIC COD when...
Adding to the misinformation....
MARINE AREAS 3 and 4 - 20 Fathom Restriction BOTTOMFISH: May 9-Labor Day: Fishing for or possession of BOTTOMFISH (except LINGCOD, SABLEFISH, and PACIFIC COD when halibut is open) is prohibited seaward of a line approximating 20 fathoms from Bonilla-Tatoosh line...
Thoughts on logo. 1. The type will match your Thrasher Rods well. 2. I like distance between the generic salmon graphic and logotype. I’m not sure how the clip art skull fits into the theme. I like the striping.
Salmon hitting a hockey puck "slap shot" is what I was thinking. We could expand on this more perhaps. Girl bent over getting slapped in the ass by a Thresher? Pinup style of course.
Canadian flag wrapped around the bow (maybe shredding), similar to what I did for Todd the Hobbit. The brow...
Arctic Fox campers have a separate control unit under the sink. (Sounds like yours in under fridge.) This is a handheld plug-in unit, not wireless remote. If something goes bad you can use the handheld. If that unit is active, the wireless will not work.
So, check if you have the handheld and...
The last good Ford diesel was made by International. Since they have taken manufacturing in-house they haven’t made one good engine. The 6.7l is littered with issues with the rest of them. One of them was mentioned above by Quan. Turbo, coolant leaks, egr, glow plugs, etc. all well documented...
A few notes: Big difference in bottom widths between models. Searunner is narrow. A Searunner probably isn’t setup from factory to handle year-round moorage. You'll need to rectify that. Uncle Bob ain't cheap.
Yes. Selective. Just as much as guys in Hewescraft boats. Ha. Couldn’t help myself.
Seasports are tippy at rest. Great in head sea. Bow steer in following. I believe Orcas also bow steer but not as much. Hulls are cored.
If you plan to fish Westport a lot you might want to know how they handle.
If you want to help, you can donate to the Red Cross
Great report. I’ve got skilz.... this is what happens when it’s wide open and everything with a fin wants in the game. A lot of blue sharks hit us even before blood was in the water. They’re following the tuna, looking for an easy meal.
Sorry. The one I was thinking of was a steelhead smolt research paper: Puget Sound Steelhead Marine Survival 2013-2017
Written by Environmental and Fisheries Sciences Division, Northwest Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Fisheries Service, NOAA.
I don’t have a link. Another paper was...
You can see Bayliner on the back transom, so its probably an older 2802 199? something. Most boats still use wood in the transom for thickness and strength. I think Grady switched a few years ago to composite and aluminum backing for strength.
Best day of fishing ever. Glorious south wind, acres of Dahl porpoise, sun was out, fish were hogs, run & gun, beer was cold AND I got to fish with @TonyG. Speaking of Barbies, we ended the night with a bachelorette pizza party with Westport 10s. Tony got a gift.
I like the ocean, the more people we can get out of WA the better.
California is becoming a socialist state. I feel sorry for you guys. Your new governor will give free Medicare for all plus the 3 million illegals. Bend over. But at least the fishing is good off SD.
Increasing the hatcheries is a great idea, but they would need to get it in the budget now for 2020. All their ideas cost money besides putting more restrictions on fisherman.
See where this is going....
#J50/Scarlet Update (8/17): This is the sick (starving whale). Looks like worms. If a dog had worms it wouldn’t eat either.
Test results showed moderate levels of Contracaecum, a nematode parasite that has previously been found in killer whales and other marine mammals. The parasite can...
I saw Ron Gardner at the meeting taking place right now live. Q13 has it live on FB.
Hopefully @Fishinnut will have a rundown of the meeting. Good and bad.
Looks like everything is on the table. Seal culling, limited King fishing, paying commercials not to fish, slot limits, bird culling...
The Orca population is the same as it was 40 years ago. Pollution and inbreeding will eventually extinct the species.
Orcas are high on prescription drugs, pesticides and Starbucks caffeine. If the raw sewage doesn’t kill them, surely the jitters from Starbucks will. But they’ll blame it on...
I figured you had about 4300lbs to play with. You are golden. Remember that the tongue weight is multipled by length extended. I’d have to do the calculations, but you’re good.
Is that pic with the stable loads?
How did it ride?? How is the sway?
Tires are rated for 3640lbs. 7280 rear axle max. Minus your rear axle weight around 2970 Gives you around 4310lbs to play with.
You’re probably just fine if your camper is around 3000lbs.
Now get to bolting shit on.
They should give you a rubber mat for bed. Fastguns. Tie downs and the...
I have an Arctic Fox 811. The dry weight sticker on the back is wrong. I put mine on and took it to a scale. Weigh your front axle, all axles and rear axle. Never run wet. I always get water at site and dump. Weigh your trailer tongue weight at home and then figure out the weight increase at 48”...
Same program for Sunday. Back to the dock at 12:45. 9 halibut and 18 lings. Corey and I took our daughters out for a little daddy/daughter time on the big blue. Perfect day to get the kids out on the Coldwater.
I can tell you that the fish checker was on the boat in Westport. Measured the lingcod. Didn’t measure one halibut. Said she didn’t need to. Left. Same on Coleman’s boats too. Counting anglers and applying general weight.
It’s always rough outside of Waddah running west. It’s also rough around Tatoosh with mixed currents. The way the currents runs and land structure makes this happen. Once you move past these areas it can smooth out a lot.
Learn the area. Don’t get caught in bad situations like the slot. Common...
Tragic. Dangerous place to fish on a strong tide and worse when you add bad weather.
We saw a 19’ Defiance Sunday 35 miles out of Westport on the 9’ on 12 sec swell forecast plus chop. A lot of guys stayed home that day. Luckily it turned greasy and was by far the best day of the year with...
The Southern population is doomed. Only two breeding males. Inbred as two fucking cousins. They won’t address the seal populations or the toxins in their fat which is the main cause of any “decline”. The population is actually greater than in the 70s, the same as it was in the 80s. We all know...
The boat was fine when he left that night. Came back the next morning and it was sunk. Doesn’t rain that much to sink a boat.
If the bracket filled that could have been enough for the fish boxes to overflow.
Sounds like multiple catastrophic failures.
In Sweden they smoke them whole and serve with bread/crackers and butter. Delicious. I've also had stuffed flounder with mussels and shrimp.
They drift Bristleworms or plastics to catch them from small boats.
Just not as popular to eat here.
A few of us got together at the Thrasher Rod shop this weekend @Corey G @Stryker20 to test out a new line of vertical jigging blanks. We tested three blanks made for specific jig weights for three regions - one for the East Coast, one for SoCal and one for our Washington waters. All beyond...
Last year we had 55 days of no rain during the summer. The whole ocean was a hot tub, not concentrated. I don't see anything predicted differently. Bring your swim trunks and plenty of beer. Hot tub party 70 miles out!
Sent my email to Kyle.
Hello Kyle, I am not able to attend the Westport meeting to discuss the ocean sport fishery. Please accept this email correspondence as my voice to reject the proposed Sunday to Thursday ocean fishery. The current salmon season proposals are positioned to severely limit...
If you look up 36’ Judge. They went from twin 300s to 350s and only picked up 6mph. But 350s reverse fast.
Twin 300 Suzuki's 45mph
Twin 350 Yamaha's 47mph
Twin 350 Suzuki's 51mph
Trip 300 Suzuki's 54mp
Well ya see.... this boat has diamond plate flooring and vinyl flooring inside. So that's like extra. And they jammed a toilet in the bow and shrunk the v-birth so you can't actually use it for weekend trips. That design flaw is expensive.
Low returns expected to restrict Washington's salmon fisheries
OLYMPIA – Projected poor returns of several salmon stocks are expected to limit fishing opportunities in Washington's waters this year, state salmon managers announced today.
Forecasts for chinook, coho, sockeye, and chum salmon –...
Cougars on the run episode features Washington WDFW catching poachers and seizing a boat. Some of these people deserve more than the law can dish out. Just amazing at what people try to get away with daily.
Cheap tuna rod: Original Seeker 270H-8
Custom tuna rod: Thrasher TR-F 80M or 76H
Cheap salmon rod: Lamiglas Classic Glass
If you don't want to buy a Islander TR3 and rod combo, look at Trophy XL and rod combo.
I think when Bo bought the Arima line they stopped wood transoms. So those years would have wood. I would guess the 2002 would not have wood stringers. You could call Defiance. The original Arima manager is still on the line.
Since we love to talk about weather on BD so much..... Here's the weekend forecast. This would be a good halibut weather day drinking beer all the way out with Pat. BEER ME! Too bad it's not open!
Saturday W wind 7 to 13 kt. W swell 4 to 5 ft. Wind waves 1 to 2 ft.
That sucks James. I'm sure NorthRiver would build you almost the exact same boat with a .250 bottom and flapper scuppers.
Your first mistake was taking to Matt. :rofl:
Jeff posted the alternative.
Dude, Verado??? I would suggest Suzuki or Yamaha and I think most would agree with me. Do you have a choice?
Congrats on the purchase brother
Meh. I didn’t see anything I liked or a price tag I liked either. The Liberator was the best tuna boat by far although I didn’t like the lack of side storage usually in the form of trays like a Coldwater.
