Re: Bass food options in Westside urban lakes

Maybe you found a cannibalistic tribe of bass haha they just feed on the smaller ones. "Baby Bass" can be one of the best colors for bass lures!

Re: Smelly Walleye?

I have noticed at certain times on certain lakes I can smell fish. Not sure if there is one dead on shore up wind of me or if my subconscious is playing tricks on me as well haha. Not sure how to explain it though. Also I'm rarely on lakes with walleye.. I think your on to something though..

Re: WDFW closes sportfishing statewide

How come there are many boat launches still openly operating for pleasure boats but if you cast a pole out your breaking the law? Seems pleasure boating is much more of a social activity to me... a few photos of a fishery or two being crowded dictates the law for all fisheries in the state? Ridiculo...

Re: Signs of the season

54 to 55 degree surface temps is when I start hooking into the bass more regularly. But like you said it varies year to year. I sure hope this ban is lifted May 4th, I'm taking the day off for fishing haha

Re: Whatcom Creek - Bellingham Wa

I know its early too. Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully they show and I can get a chance to run up and give it a shot a day or two in Nov. I'm still chasing coho around but with the rains coming most rivers are going to be unfishable. My local river is already blown out like crazy after yesterday.....

Re: Whatcom Creek - Bellingham Wa

Well I figured I'd post to see if the chum are going to show this year or if anyone has heard/seen them showing up? The last 2 years were dismal compared to previous years, I'm curious if this is a trend or they're going to show up in full force this year. Thanks in advance for any info!

Re: What to do ... with Chum Salmon

My favorite thing to do with chum is catch and release them till my arms get sore! Also, I've had a local let me try some of his cajun smoked chum while fishing once and that was good. Might be something to look into..? Or just smoke it up nice if you get some bright fish. If their bellies are dark ...

Re: Tacoma - Advice/Tips for a Tennessean

1 tip is make sure you read the regulations carefully for washington. They can be a bit confusing and in depth but many streams and creeks have their own regs and may not be open. I'd buy a reg book and spend a little time reading. Other than that do some research online for public access areas with...

Re: 2019 Not Quite Trophy But Still Nice Bass Pictures Gallery

Got a nice plump 4.5 lber (19.5") a few days ago on a cold drizzly morning. She straightened one of the hooks out on the front treble. Couple of aerials, put up a great fight! Swam off strong. Bad picture, hard to get a good pic by yourself sometimes haha

Re: My experience with fishing/Outdoors etc. in Idaho.

I've been to sand point for vacation (not fishing yet) for summer and winter probably about 4 times. I love it over there. Same thing I've found with many eastern wa areas. I'll go to a boat launch in the middle of no where and the facilities are clean with no needles etc to worry about. Not to ment...

Re: Lake Cavanaugh Fishing opportunities

That lake looks real bassy. I've scoped it out bidding work up there the last couple weeks. And I have a friend who has seen bass but couldnt get them to react. Water is really clear so I'm sure that makes them harder to catch. I may give it a shot in the summer once it warms up a bit. Either it's n...

Re: Say it isn't so, no Marine Area 8-1/8-2/9 blackmouth?

I wonder if there are any new rules for the tribes for these fisheries. Nooksack and the stilly are known (by myself) to have LOTS of netting which I'm sure doesn't help. At least the wife will be happy I wont be salt fishing all winter this coming season.. I assumed there would be more strict regs ...
