    Such an awesome trip. The crew worked so hard to help us all have fun and get on some fish. These guys really are as good as it gets! Everything seemed to work. I got mine on 50lb sinker rigs with size 2 hook. It was awesome fishing with you Greg!

    SOLD Delete thanks!

    yeah I get what you mean. I’m up in Oregon so I’m limited on options. The staff there were very knowledgeable if it helps. Aaron hooked me up with a 875xh and it feels sick! Can’t wait to get on some BFT!

    SOLD Delete thanks!

    Bob Sands has 20% off a number of nice rods and shipping is reasonable. Just got a nice CalStar Graphfighter for a great price from them and it was very well packaged.

    Slow 3 day on Pac Queen 10/29-11/1

    totally agree. Their counts are always the best and he is a passionate fishy dude. I look forward to fishing with him again.

    Slow 3 day on Pac Queen 10/29-11/1

    I think the fish counts were low in general due to the weather, water temp dropped 1-2 degrees and there was a TON of squid around so I'm guessing the fish were filling up on it. Don't think that's the case but Im guessing you're just trolling for fun. I tipped the crew well and told a number...

    Slow 3 day on Pac Queen 10/29-11/1

    Came down from Oregon to get a taste of that BFT fever and looks like I missed the bite by days. We saw some breezers on our last day with 1-2 short hook ups (both on 25lb fluorocarbon). We got into a few nice YT 25-35lbs mostly on Tadys/Salas yo-yoing. Total heart break to take a week of...

    Hey everyone! Trying to get moorage for the second week of Halibut fishing at Big Salmon so the 8th-11th. Unfortunately I can’t afford to rent the whole month of May plus I can’t miss my graduation during the 3rd week of the season. Looking for a slip that can accommodate 30ft and has power...

    Question about taking Squid from US to Mexico

    A few weeks ago I made a trip from Seattle to the East Cape with about 50 pounds of frozen Humboldt and it was no problem with customs whatsoever. Just make sure you freeze the squid solid before your trip and you should be fine then get them on ice whenever you can find it. And boy did it pay...

    Puget Sound Black Rockfish... A divers view.

    Hood Canal has a number of dive sites that have healthy populations of Black rockfish and some mighty big lings too! Cory if you can you should check out the pinnacle and the flagpole sites. There are hundreds of black rockfish at the flagpole. Last time I dove there I didn't have a gopro to film:/

    Congrats! College swimming was the greatest! I just went to my second alumni meet last week, swimming was a huge part of my life but now rather than waking up at 5am to swim 5 miles I sit in a boat and put around catching fish and drinking beer at 5am :rofl:

    Great story bummer about losing that fish. Reminds me of a 5 and a half hour fight I had with a 100+ pound yellowfin on 30 pound test that ended when we had to try and ream it up cause it was getting dark. Sounds like you had a bluefin or a mako.

    Steve the problem with your comparison is that fishing maps/reports are to give you a general idea of where a shit ton of fish will likely swim the cove two map and advice from divers in the area is to help you find specific animals that live there for people to visit like you visit a sanctuary...

    Well the scuba folks might end up getting areas shut down or worse now...

    Honestly I don't have a problem with the current regulation and I wouldn't have one if there was more regulation. My only concern would be people making a hay day outta this whole dumb fiasco and getting riled up so they could get some extra bait but that's not really a concern to be honest...

    Well the scuba folks might end up getting areas shut down or worse now...

    As a diver and angler I'm gonna say there's no NEED to keep them. Yeah you can eat them but it's not like their that great and their such a unique animal (kinda like eating Marlin). But anyways I don't think to many people target them out here anyways so if they close it it's not that big of a...
