Re: Spot Shrimp Newbie

I got the square SMI pots from Costco this year and like them over the Ladner (or Ladner knock off I have). We went off hat island this year and did well. Lots of places to shrimp in 8-2. Check out the maps on johns sporting goods site.
And as Bentrod noted line management is important!

Re: Boat-in Beaches Everett/Island County Area

Hi JDP, I thought I replied before so if you get 2, my apologies. Much of the Sounds is private property so its best to look at parkland. Cama Beach on the west side of Camano island is a nice place, though I'm not sure if you can beach your boat there or not. If you launch at Washington Park in Ann...

Shrimp Pot

Word is shrimp may open for another day--be prepared! I have a Kufa Ladner-style shrimp pot. This is the big 30 inch pot. Picture is off the web, but its identical. Used twice. Good pot, but I'm going with the square style. If you wanted stackable, this is the pot for sure. $75 including 400 feet of...

Re: Looking to get started in Lingcod Bottom Fishing in the Puget Sound: What Fishing Line/Sinkers should I buy?

Hi Speedbird,
You should check out John's site: https://johnssportinggoods.com/rigging-tackle/ I'm not sure if they are open again, but you can also stop by the store and they can set you up.

Re: New spinning new problem

Hello and Welcome!! As you will soon find there are as many opinions on gear as there are fishermen and it often comes down to budget. Shimano makes fantastic reels, but most of them are quite expensive. The Sienna and Sedona are under $100 I think. I have Okuma reels--the RTX in particular, which i...

Re: New to fishing in washington

Welcome to Washington! As Larry said shoreline access is tough. Between this site and various facebook pages you can see rivers where someone caught at least one fish but you may not know exactly where. When you go to said river you really can only try one or two spots a trip. If you have the means,...

Re: Where are the Ocean run Coho?

I was out for a short time yesterday and it did appear that the storm flushed the pinks out. We only saw a few jumpers and no nets out.

Re: Salmon setup question

If you want to troll for pinks a dodger will likely have less drag than the flasher or continue with the inline flasher. White and pink are the standard colors though I'm sure others work as well. If you are using an inline, the lure will need some action, such as a spoon (I've caught the occasional...

Re: Public Rights on River

Idaho has a law directly on point in its Fish and Game laws. Look of 36-1601. That should convince the Sheriff. Federal law would use a different definition of navigability than this Idaho law.

Baitcaster Reel Recommendations $100

Hi All, In the spirit of learning new things, I'm looking for recommendations on a baitcasting reel. This will be largely bass on westside lakes. I'd like to keep it to $100 or less if possible. It has to be easy to use and help me minimize birds nests! A matching rod recommendation also appreciated...

Re: Spot Shrimp Newbie

Thanks to all for the pot advice!
I'm going out of Edmonds. Seems like Brown's Bay is the most popular, but I was wondering if anyone has had luck and Point Wells? I'm thinking (hoping) that it may not be quite as much of a zoo.

Spot Shrimp Newbie

Hi All I finally got a pot puller and am going to partake in the short shrimp season this year. I've been scouring the interweb posts and videos on pot set up and I'd appreciate any additions or corrections to my plan: Pots: One nice ladner-style, two of those plasticy tunnel traps (didn't want to s...
