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...

Still having an issue with Chrome after going through all outlined steps above twice. Closed everything out but did not restart the computer, did that yesterday. Working fine on Edge still and on my droid Motorola though.

Re: Login not working

None of that seemed to work on Chrome, even took Mikes advice and cleared all cookies through settings, but Edge is working fine so I will just use this for the time being. Thanks for all the great work on the site!

I have been unable to log in, user name and password are stored. I click login then enter and nothing happens. Anyone else having an issue? Not sure if this is related to the logout issue just noted.

Re: Spot Shrimp Newbie

While also a newbie, I got my puller and am looking at pots still. I have gone out with friends a few times in the San Juan's (longer season there), we used cat food and pellets. The other thing we found is the bigger pot is better as there is a relatively short window of slack tide where you can re...

Re: Our Friend the Furnance

Yes a carbon monoxide detector is not only the law, but very smart if you have any types of combustion going on. Also while they do make combination smoke-CO detectors, always a good idea to get an extra couple CO detectors and place them near the ground (or close by the combustion unit, stove, furn...

Re: North sound launches

Thanks for the tips. I did launch out of Everett this Sunday, not too bad even for a busy day, loading and unloading was a smooth operation. Even caught a Coho. Might try out Cornet bay next weekend to fish Skagit bay or other places up that way. Do not hear much about 8-1 so any tips are welcome. R...

North sound launches

Checking if anyone has advice on the launches in the North end for access to the sound. I will be launching a 19' glasply cuddy so need a dock and am coming from Warm Beach. Seems like options are Marysville, 10th St., Maybe Langlois, or Camano St. park. Any preferences or things to watch for? Looks...

Re: Fishing near Camano Island

Joe, The salt will be open for Coho, barring emergency closure so beaches might be an option. Another option would be to head just a little south of Stanwood to 7 lakes area. Lots of small lakes with reportedly decent fishing (see JoshH reports), but some floating device would likely be needed as th...

Re: Baker lake sockeye

Don't fish for sockeye that far up river, only a portion of the lower river is open for sockeye. Near the Cascade you can fish for Chinook, otherwise hit the lake.

Re: Remote camp site advice needed!

Lake Daiblo, or if you can arrange the portage Lake Ross. On the eastside you could try Palmer lake (bunch of remote lakes in that area if you want to get farther out like Chopaka) or someplace on Lake Roosevelt.

Re: Switch for parallel batteries

I like the Blue Sea combined with automatic charging relay, gives the benefit of the switch, but no changing back and forth unless you want to combine. It will also charge both batteries with only one hooked up to the charger. This also allows for charging of both batteries from the motor, if main b...
