Re: Puget Sound Coho regs for this season - clip vrs. unclipped...

If your fishing in 9 with a unclipped fish in the boat you will be in trouble. The fish in the boat have to be legal for the area you are fishing in. You could move thru but not fish.

Re: Lost Tennessean

I assume you will be in the San Juan islands area, you could pick up a some bottom fish or crab. A crab ring or snare should do with out investing a ton of money. Check the regs.

Re: Seals

Explosives work great too. Something with a waterproof fuse and "m80 sized" taped to a weight to sink quickly. The dock shakes and rumbles, the bubbles float up from the bottom. Then, oddly enough, the few times that Ive tried this the squid seemed to hit hard immediately. Seal free for a few hours...

"all TROUT (except STEELHEAD) equal to or greater than the minimum size" or you might say a fish that is legal to keep.

Re: A Bait & Release Question On Lake Roosevelt

The wild trout do not meet the minimum size of a trout to be kept. Because there is no minimum size for a wild fish. You can not keep them. So you don't count a fish you could not have kept.

Re: A Bait & Release Question On Lake Roosevelt

If you could not keep it you should not have to count it. If I catch a wild king I can not keep I do not have to count it. I understand the intent is to keep the catch and release of unmarked fish down, but how can the WDFW have it both ways.

Re: Do I need to exchange my battery?

Short answer, yes. I think you already figured out that you need a deep cycle. A starting battery is not made to be run down and recharged over and over. I am sure some one else can give you greater details on what to look for. In fact I am sure I have read other threads on batteries on this site.

Re: Catch and ReleaseTrout BAIT fishing

If you couldn't have kept it, you should not have to count it. I under stand (don't like it) that you have to release a dead fish, other wise everyone would have fish that were going to die. But counting one you could not keep doesn't fit with the way the reg is written. I would think a judge would ...

Re: Catch and ReleaseTrout BAIT fishing

I think it is a problem all over the state. People don't seem to read and know the regs well enough. Even people who know the bait rule may not know that scent is bait. I will say that some of the regs can be hard to figure out exactly what is right. There have been many long threads proving that. B...

Re: Rife fishing bridge?

Rife has land locked coho. I went down there a few years ago and did well from my boat. The fish were full of worms and even tho people said they were ok to eat we used them for crab bait. So I can't say how they tasted.

Re: Using live minnows for winter walleye

I know about using only bait from the lake you are fishing. But is it realistic for us in WA to do? How do you legally catch the minnows? In the south (only place I have used minnows) they use a casting net. Would something like a herring jig work and or be legal? Then wouldn't you have to ID each m...
