Re: slide-in truck camper

I had a hard side slide in 8ft camper, not self contained and we used an electric heater in the campgrounds. I now have a 8 ft pop up Palomino Bronco. With both space was an issue.

Re: crawfish 2013

Every shellfish pot, ring net, or star trap left unattended in Washington waters must have its own buoy line and a separate buoy that is permanently
and legibly marked with the operator’s first name, last name, and permanent address (telephone number is voluntary).

There are other camping grounds/RV parks right in the area. I don't know about them but there is one accross from the state park and...

Re: PLEASE HELP! BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!

Two years ago the pinks were there in July and I don't think they were too picky. We were using flashers with Coho Killers and flashers with squid. We got kings early in the day and pinks all day. Troll a little faster than for kings. I am sure the dodger pink squid would work. Ask around when you a...

Re: What ya think

Re: leech traping

I was planning on using a coffee can with liver inside and the top bent almost closed. Leave it on the bottom all night and see what I get. Just the string and 1 hour might be worth a try. I’m thinking in the dunes or crab creek area.

Re: A little rusty

go to the game dept web site and under hunting go to "go hunt" download the map of the area you are looking at hunting. It shows state and fed land. If you have a Garmin GPS you may be able to use a map program that shows who's land you are on. http://www.huntinggpsmaps.com" onclick="window.open(thi...

The Magellan could be set to show what I wanted on the screen all at one time, speed/direction and map. It had battery that was just for it and rechargeable, I think it had a AAA adaptor. I went ...
