Re: Shipping Lanes

you are totally right, bodo. i've worked on those same commercial ships for more than 40 years and have had many close encounters in restricted waterways/ shipping lanes. they are called SHIPPING lanes for a reason. if you're in a small craft you have to stay away from the ships. it's pretty much a ...

Re: Rufus Woods & Omak lake

thanks for that clarification, phil. i never really thought to use a baited artificial lure to catch and release. i usually use a lure and if it doesn't produce, move on to the next one. good to know. it would be nice if the regs were more black and white without the grey areas. shark- the darker co...

Re: Rufus Woods & Omak lake

like already stated, read back on the fishing reports for rufus and omak and you'll get a good idea what has and may work. on rufus, you can't go wrong starting out trolling a wedding ring. pitching roostertails and jigging can work well also. be sure to crimp the barbs on all hooks on your lures so...

Re: Trippin With Triploids Fishing Derby Bridgeport, WA

i just submitted a report as well. we also left the festivities a bit early due to just flat being hot and tired. we did hang around long enough to wait for the smallest fish catagory. i was lucky enough to walk away with a $50 check for that. the monster weighed-in at .377 lbs [woot] [blush] [thumb...

Re: The PowerBait Way

thanks! this is good info. fish can be picky bitters for alot of reasons, and i'm sure we've all been out there and ended up throwing the whole box at them trying to hook up. i've never tried rolling PB into a 'worm' shape tho. new ammo for the arsenal [thumbup] . i'm all for changing it up when 'my...

Re: What's the deal with Silver Lake?

many lakes have had this issue when they start to warm up it seems. McMurray for one also. later in the year i'd catch many fish with parasites on them. pretty nasty looking, but from the info i got the fish were still ok to eat if you scraped them off. myself i stopped eating them fried or grilled ...

Re: summer sausage

a few years ago i bought a sausage 'kit' at walmart made by smokehouse products. they're the same folks that make the big chief (etc) electric smokers. it comes with a stuffing tube and plunger, 12 or 18 'skins', and seasoning for a few different types of sausage ( summer, polish, beef). everything ...
