Re: What is this hook?

lots of them on eBay from Asia-based sellers. I have hundreds that I got from a garage sale years ago. Still working through my supply. I use them just like I would any other hook, for trout, bottomfish, salmon, steelhead, freshwater fish, etc.

Re: Regulation clarification

Wild coho are legal for retention in both the Green and Puy. If the regs don't say anything about releasing wild coho in a specific body of water, then they are legal to retain (assuming that you meet other requirements, like minimum size limit, possession/daily limits and that the body of water is ...

Re: Surf Fishing Washington Shoreline

let me throw in a few tips: For a container to hold fish and gear/bait: I use an old duffle bag with a shoulder strap. If i use a clam net, I find that the fish get banged around by the waves and also brush up against my waders with their sharp fins (could poke a hole in the waders), and so I stoppe...

Re: rules proposal: no limit on pan fish

Used to be there was no limit on spiny rays. I cannot think of one instance where any particular species of panfish was fished out - of any particular body of water. It is unlikely that there is enough pressure anywhere to decimate these resilient fish. I'm with the no limit group. onmygame For yea...

Re: Unweighted spoons

Many years ago, I tried casting an unweighted spoon off a pier. Didn't get any salmon, but couldn't keep the bullheads (staghorn sculpin) off. Must have caught dozens that day (all released).

Re: Whatcom Creek - Bellingham Wa

Think I might give it a shot today. It's been a couple years and the Nooksack refuses to give me any luck. Question, is floating a jig in compliance with anti-snagging rules? Seems like it straddles the line legally. The answer depends on your jig. If the hook on your jig is more than 3/4 inch from...

Re: Lake Washington smallmouth bass

Try Gene Coulon park in Renton. Lots of shoreline access (dock and shore). All of the parks along the Bellevue and Kirkland shoreline will also get you into bass. Basically, all or most parks should give you a shot at good bass. I have yet to find a public park on Lake WA where I have been skunked f...

Plasti Dip liquid rubber (not the spray) is good for fixing leaks in neoprene. The stuff will soak into the neoprene and seal the pin holes

Re: Lake Washington Dock Fishing

Believe it or not, I do really well in Lake WA fishing a white crappie tube about 3 feet under a bobber. This is from a dock or shore. Cast it out and work it over the weeds slowly.

The traditional bass rigs frustrate me too much on lake WA, due to the thick weeds near the docks/shorelines.

Re: new to saltwater fish. what those at Mukilteo pier...

Flounder and sole will munch on the barnacles, as well as the sea perch.

When you see a dark fish that "turns white" when it flips around the pilings, those are most likely sole/flounder.

The pile perch are also "light colored" and can be seen eating off the piling.

Re: Confusion, 1st degree....

Regs change from one river to another. in some rivers, unciipped jacks are OK to retain; in other rivers, they are not.
