Return of theh Blob?

Say it ain't so, hopefully some good storms can come through and disrupt this warm surface water. Seems like the salmon were just starting to recover! https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/environment/new-marine-heat-wave-resembles-killer-blob-that-devastated-sea-life-on-west-coast-noaa-says/ #-o

Re: Propeller advice

Prop shop in Mukilteo hooked us up, great people and very knowledgeable. Went with the 4 blade, and they thought that would help performance with my boat. Now just have to get some time for a water (fishing) test. Also they were cheaper than Amazon!

Re: Propeller advice

Heading to the Prop shop in Mukilteo, also found a thread on Glasply.org (nice recommendation 18ftTrophy) where a guy with the same boat was asking same thing so got some good tips on a 4 blade replacement. Might see if they can just repair this one to keep as a spare, depending on how I like the 4 ...

Re: Propeller advice

Sideburns, Thanks for chiming in with some sound advice. Guess I should stick with as similar as I can for now until I can get some on water WOT testing. I did like one four blade prop that stated better turning (hole shot) and better stern lift, which would be good in my case since I am often pulli...

Re: Propeller advice

Thanks for the tips, I am usually pulling a dingy along so I do not have much WOT running time to know. Novice boater too so no idea what the ideal rpm's would even be! Typically I can only go about 13-14 mph to keep the dingy from freaking out at about 2400 rpm's. At least we did not end up like th...

Propeller advice

Quick question about correct propellers as I will be needing a new one after an unnamed (wasn't me) person ran into some rock in the San Juan's last weekend. Luckily it was just bent a little and did not derail the boat camping trip, and we turned just fast enough to avoid running aground, but not f...

Re: Looking for bait and bobber sure thing for 7 YO

Yes in Kenmore, there used to be a sign telling you to not eat those fish though due to contamination. Not sure if that is still in effect but might want to C&R, or check for details.

Re: Oh Man, No Fishing for Me!

If you need any failure analysis on your broken pieces I can do that (www.simonforensic.com). See if there were material defects or something else. Also I have a Tundra with a 2" ball, just sayin (if I can ever find any free time)!

Re: Motor not restarting after motoring

No issues this time out with the only change being letting the main motor idle down for 3-5 minutes after running, restarted perfectly every time. Nice to finally have a trip with no mechanical issues.

Re: WDFW’s Deep water release tool

The other method is a milk crate turned upside down. I used a 4lb downrigger ball as weight, connected with a hardness from a crab pot and a retrieve line tied on the bottom (which became the top upside down). There is a description of that on the WDFW website. It was convenient for my last trip sin...

Re: Motor not restarting after motoring

New plugs last year, new cap and rotor this year. Good thought on the choke, another friend mentioned that might be an issue. I should probably check the plugs to see what they look like.

Re: Motor not restarting after motoring

Yes just when you think you got it all dialed in something crops up, but it is 41 years old! Not too hot, just still warm, as it did not cool all the way off during the time we were just hanging out with motor off. Wondering about something in the carburetor that might be allowing gas to continue to...

Motor not restarting after motoring

I have been having occasional issue with my motor not wanting to restart after we cruise around. The issue seems to only crop up when I have been running pretty good (when we motored up to top of Camano) at about 2500-3000 rpm (20-22 mph) then I turn off the motor for 20-30 minutes. When I went to r...

Re: Confused

Ling cod is open and halibut is on select days. Fast decent device is to return rock fish to the depth so they might live since you cannot keep those in Puget sound.

report tabs not all working

I am having an issue with the report tabs other than the latest reports. If I click on lake reports, river reports, etc. it just goes to error page. This worked for me the other day. The only one that still seems correct is the latest reports. I think this is a great feature that makes sorting troug...
