Moorage and cabin booked....Juuuuuuuice bound baby!!!!

Thanks for the info! See ya there!
Anybody need a ho? We have a camping trip booked in Sequim and I'd happily run to LP or Neah for the day...
Thanks for posting David I just got moorage at big salmon.
nice but I was expecting 2 days due to the bad weather on the opener and the tougher than usual fishing on Thursday.
No Thursday the 26th? Just sat?
They just posted fish poundage. Looks like we have one more good day left (or 6 days like opening day).
WDFW FISHING RULE CHANGE
Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091
May 18, 2016
Halibut fishing re-opens in Marine Areas 3 and 4 on May 28;
Westport northern nearshore area will close on May 21
Action: Recreational halibut fishing in Marine Area 3 (La Push) and Marine Area 4 (Neah Bay) will re-open for one additional fishing day. Closes the northern nearshore area in Marine Area 2 (Westport).
Marine areas 3 and 4: Open May 28, 2016.
Marine Area 2: Closed effective May 21, 2016.
Species affected: Pacific halibut
Location: Marine Areas 2, 3 and 4
Reason for action: There is sufficient quota remaining in Marine areas 3 and 4 to open the recreational halibut fishery for another day. The recreational halibut quota for the northern nearshore area in Marine Area 2 has reached the Pacific halibut quota reserved for this area; there is not enough quota pounds available to open this area for an additional fishing day. This rule conforms to federal action taken by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC).
Additional Information: Recreational halibut fishing remains open in other coastal and Puget Sound areas.
Marine Area 1 (Ilwaco): Open 4 days/week (Thursday-Sunday) in all depth areas, and the Neashore area is open on days when the all depth halibut fishery is closed (Mon-Wed) until the subarea quota is taken.
Marine areas 5-10 (Puget Sound): Open May 26 through 29, Thursday through Sunday.
Information contact: Heather Reed, (360) 249-4628, ext. 202.

Maybe Cwillis will invite me... Seriously I'm glad they're giving folks another shot. Considering that other species issue.
Dude, I would totally but I am probably going to be in your neck of the woods. I was told by my wife I need to take my 3.5 year old out of the house for the weekend so she can start potty training w/ the 2 year old. He isn't quite ready for Neah Bay but we may go throw some prawn traps in the drink.
Boat Ho Available and requesting invites....missed out on the white fish so far.
Take the 3.5 yr old to Neah... just stay inside of Tattosh and Waddah... easy rock fish / seabass action.
My daughter started fishing in the Straight just after 2 yrs old.
We got a 60 pound halibut at seal and sale when we were up for the Lingcod opening as well.
I love it. If I had a slip, room, etc I would consider it. The rat race I envision Saturday to be after witnessing last weekend is gonna have me stay on the sideline this time. Best of luck to all!
I actually expected worse than it actually was.
Awesome, were jizzing all over ourselves about this "bonus" day that used to be standard.
All these 1 day turn and burn halibut trips to the coast are brutal.
