    Spotter aircraft this season???

    Great point about where albacore hang out... on days when they are jumping and boiling you don’t really need a spotter plane and on days they aren’t they are probably too deep for the plane to see.

    Of course if you can get some rich Silicon Valley billionaire Californians into coho fishing maybe sportsmen would have enough clout and deep enough pockets to restart some hatchery production and win some political battles. So maybe you are on to something.

    Why not? We have short seasons that are shorter every year due (amongst many factors) to more fisherman and more “encounters”. I get encouraging people to fish and participate but it’s a fine line. The more that play the less field there is for each of us to play on.

    To me you are 75% right. Will be nice to target nearshore chinook if the local Grays harbor area fish stack up and mill about nearby for a bit this month. But yes.

    Raymarine autopilot and electronics going on soon. Should be here any day. That auto should work with either as I’ve seen it in action on both mechanical and fbw systems. I was hoping to get @Walker Inc. ‘s opinion and it was not what I expected... but that certainly would save me a few bucks.

    2020 halibut

    My understanding is that any of the inner tribes can fish the straights all the way to tatoosh. The makah usually fish outside. Not saying I know for a fact no one is fishing. But my Makah friends out there aren’t fishing and they are grumbling about it too.

    Having seen the recent video by the Makah medical director and hearing from other folks out there that they have had zero cases so far out there at all I am doubtful that the big slamon folk get there way and have it open by mid June. There are lots of other folks in neah bay that would like to...

    Why did I think I could launch my boat?

    Anyone hear if there are any changes or updates regarding the Seattle area launches? Seems like the state opening things up would force Seattle’s hand to allow access to the water once things got sorted out. Otherwise I guess it will be an early morning operation.

    Thanks for sharing. The creel census looked bad but Monday it didn’t look like we would be near 5200 chinook by this weekend with 1 fish per angler. I guess when @Cornfed brings his whole team up there two weekends in a row it pretty much mops up that last 1000 fish or so.

    My .02 was that I think it would sell better without the personalization on the side. Maybe it distracts people from how solid of a boat this is. But what do I know, the last boat I sold had a giant bald eagle sticker on each side.

    Split a day charter PV November 18-26?

    I'm headed down or PV in a few weeks with the family from the 17th-27th but the kids aren’t big enough to fish offshore yet so would be game of split a charter for a day if anyone is interested since I’ll be fishing solo. I’ve fished with Danny Gomez in the past and he was awesome and would go...

    That’s original. I had this exact model for years and it’s a solid fishing platform!

    I’m down to under 100lbs (maybe 50 of clean stuff) so always looking for a good deal especially when it’s nice and clean like that!

    9/15 Tuna run that turned into a rescue operation

    Thanks for coming back and explaining it this way. Your initial posts about pitch poling the boat to see if anyone was in it and looking for bodies when it was on the beach didn’t make sense to me and others. (If that was a real concern I’m sure you would have called the coast guard) Now this...

    FG knot for braid to topshot -

    I’m not saying it doesn’t work to you.. and since you are never wrong you probably shouldnt watch from 2:25 on in that video so you can still say that in that knot the mono isn’t doubled backed over itself... Not a terrible knot. Just not nearly as thin through the guides as an FG since even...
  633. FishPimpII

    FG knot for braid to topshot -

    Have tied it for fun but didn’t stick with it because no matter how strong it is a knot where the mono doubles back andd wrsps around is thicker than I like especially if Fishing heavier mono. If you don’t mind the knot size then good on you. Thunk thunk thunk... :fighting0061:
  634. FishPimpII

    FG knot for braid to topshot -

    It does have good strength but to go with that as your go to you must like the clunk clunk clunk sound that big ole knot makes going through the guides!!!

    Cost of New Outboards?

    Agreed. I put 1000 trouble free hours on an etec 150 and liked the torque but if I needed a bigger hp engine (250+) and I was planning on putting 2k+ hours on it I would probably go Yamaha or Suzuki and would take the advice of those (like Pat) in the know. Of course I have a force 120 still...

    New Rain-Gear Advice

  639. FishPimpII

    9/15 Tuna run that turned into a rescue operation

    Yeah I was wondering if they ever explained the “why” of not feeling it is necessary to call the coastguard when discovering an overturned boat in the dark. Seems idiotic beyond comprehension actually for anyone with more than about three days driving a boat to make that choice.
  640. FishPimpII

    9/15 Tuna run that turned into a rescue operation

    Bump. Did the “salvage crew” ever say why they didn’t call the coastguard immediately? In all the bullshit I must have missed that?

    That’s funny. The power on the driftboat I use is demanding and expensive. Plus I demand er I mean it demands only premium fuel like crown royal or grey goose.

    Battlefish on Netflix

    Yeah. That white squid getting eaten they kept showing was a cool shot no doubt. But it wasn’t an anchovy getting sucked down which is what you guys do and what I love imagining right at the end of my line before I yell, “fresheeeee!!!” Hope they show that shot in season 2. Probably need to...
  648. FishPimpII

    Battlefish on Netflix

    Yep. But they showed the same hootchie when opportunaty and the other boat was jack poling with live bait too.
  649. FishPimpII

    Battlefish on Netflix

    My biggest editing beef is that every single time they show people jack poling with live bait the underwater shot that follows is of a tuna coming up and eating the slow trolled white jig. They filmed all summer and didn’t get a good underwater shot of a tuna eating live bait on the end of a...

    Just finished watching. Fun show. Would be interesting to see what the “slow days” looked like. Especially on the Oppor-tuna-ty.. how many 1-20 fish days vs 100+ fish days and how many days a week are you actually fishing. Gave me some ideas to try and made me want to get a jack pole or two...

    Yeah. Pros and cons to that R rating. Suppose the profanity is “reality” on most boats. The bummer about the R rating means I’m not watching it with my kids so that sucks.

    I was gonna say I didn’t think you’d had it very long. I though I saw this go by me traveling south last year after purchase. Pointed it out to the wife and nearly crashed my car staring at it. What a kick to the nuts. Hope you can get back on the water without breaking the bank.

    Neah bay sorta

    No it was some police guys on a zodiac launched off a bigger boat. They didn’t seem to know the local Fishing regs but they wanted to see safety gear, ID, fishing licenses, and that we had filed the report. They were happy with us so no need to argue or ask them anything.
  666. FishPimpII

    Neah bay sorta

    Yeah. They wanted to see it. In a foreign country I don’t tend to argue with law enforcement and I had filed it so I showed them. They were happy and we caught nice fish. Win for everyone.
  667. FishPimpII

    Freezer alarms - It's that time of year...

    That’s a great solution for the power right? But what if the freezer fails or in my case had a contractor blow a breaker while I wasn’t home to notice? I bought a cheap temp alarm off amazon a couple years ago. It’s failed. Thankfully freezer still running.

    If it’s in your budget the raymarine axiom pro is pretty much the pimp shit! With matching autopilot and 1kw Ducer and wireless radar it makes quite a nice package. (Team sency switched to that after being a Garmin guy and not that the garmin stuff was bad at all but it’s been a pretty...

    I hear ya on enjoying Fishing coho (especially in the fall when they are big angry hooknose) but I think that very few recreational guy would chase coho instead of Kigs knowing that it will shut the season down way early. But the charters do it every day once the silvers are in. That’s what us...

    I like that logic. I live in Ballard too. So I’m taking the native share, the commie share, and my ancestral scandanavian commercial fishing share. Shit. I’ve also worked enough in mental health that I’ll take the confused and developmentally disabled orcas share too.
