Damn it Gabe. If 2018 fishing @RI is crappy I am blaming you and Sponge Bob for not releasing all your 2014 fish to spawn
Well we realeased over 15 fish and let the biggest go.
:D Looking forward to this next year.

Consider Bamfield and Barkley Sound. Good mix of inside protected water if it's snotty and offshore banks if it's not. That plus awesome halibut and bottom fish. I would NOT do the crossing from Neah in your boat loaded with camping gear and extra weight.
That. Bamfield for variety.

We were a heavy lean not to do that crossing, probably not an option anymore.

For gods sake don’t tell them you have 300 # of beer. Technically you are only allowed 1 case each or 1.14 L of hard each going into Canada. Might want to brush up on food stuff allowed in as well. Not knowing the rules could F up a trip quickly. Don't worry beer is cheap in Canada.







Not!

Actually crown is pretty reasonable up there. Cheaper than here with the exchange if I remember right.

I believe that is for your duty free amount. Think you can take as much beer/ alcohol as you want but you could be subject to paying the duty. I always tell them what I have: i.e. two half gallons and four cases of beer for the week. So far they have just said have a good day. Figure honesty is the best policy at the border.

I read the part about one bottle of hard liquor ( Jameson in this instance) apiece, but might have missed the size specification...... FYI, the Crown bottles above are the 750 ml size, which are larger than the US 1/5th....

Fred- Thanks for the correction! Always glad to be wrong when it means that I am getting more than I think!!! Also, 10-4 on the need to get together and help reduce the weight in that big bottle!

Crown was cheaper up there than down here last summer. The beer prices killed me though!

WH for the last dozen years has produced 3 for my boat, #35, #38, #47. If you catch the timing right, inside for the Marble River run is a good bet.
