Re: $6 baitcaster

I saw a similar ad for some other product (a kayak paddle) on Amazon, a couple weeks ago. An item with an unbelievably low price. It appeared to be a seller with 0 ratings. They were selling not only the paddle, but also non-fishing items like electronics, household goods, etc. What was strange was ...

Re: Lighted public docks on Lake Washington?

here's the issue you will have with night fishing. In general, fishing is open 24/7 by the WDFW, unless there is some special night closure rule in the regs book. However, what the WDFW allows and what a city allows are different. You can fish at night legally in Lake WA, but you can't fish from a B...

Re: Lighted public docks on Lake Washington?

The docks at the marina in kirkland were lighted years ago. Didn' t catch anything in the one night i tried fishing there. Not sure if they are still open at night. Probably still are. I really don't fish for perch at night. Conventional wisdom is that they are sight feeders, and daylight is much be...

Re: Lake Washington perch in MARCH

I lay off the perch once they start to soften up and look a little pale due to ripening up for the spawn. If you still want to fish for them, your best bet is to start out in the deep water and work your way in until you find fish. They don't like rapid depth changes so they will slowly work their ...

Re: Case Inlet Fishing, Allyn

I've fished the Allyn pier a few times in the spring and summer. The fish there seemed to be small shiner perch and juvenile flounder (smaller than your hand). Hard to fish bait since the shiners thick in the summer and are really good at stripping the bait. I think if I fished the dock earlier in t...

Re: Squidding 2016

Another piece of advice. The squid are spawning now, laying eggs on the bottom. If you see one person out catching everyone else around him, it's not necessarily because he is using better jigs or techniques than the others. He could likely have positioned himself on the dock right over the spawning...

Re: Squidding 2016

My suggestions: - don't worry too much about lighting. You can continue to do what you are doing (stand near people with lights), or jig where there is no light. I often catch them in the dark if I have to. - use 2 jigs or 1 jig. 3 jigs is too heavy. you can better attract squid and/or detect bites ...

nasty fish with a poisonous spine, if I recall correctly.

Lake WA perch

Hi guys I may try for some yellow perch this week at lake wa. Are the schools of perch still roaming at the edges of the weed lines or have they moved into the deeper water in the lake, or somewhere in between? Have somewhat tight schedule and so I would like to hit the water depths where I have the...

Re: Westport Jetty Help!

I've had better success with smaller jigs for the rockfish. Usually about 1/4 ounce. 1/2 ounce max. Use smaller plastics-- 3 inches max--I like curl tail grubs in 2 inch or 3-inch sizes. Never had much luck with the bigger plastics. Use lighter colors. Basically, the black rockfish are fish-eaters. ...

Re: Salmon seasons rivers

just for clarification, the catch and release season on the Skoke is only for "gamefish". Salmon are not classified as "gamefish" but are instead classified as "foodfish". As such and per the regs (e.g., "salmon fishing is closed unless listed specifically as being open"), there is NO salmon season ...
