Re: the grind of sorting the fishing gear

It's not that good honestly. Last time I was down there the weather was cool and the blegills where a bit sluggish...so when I took the kiddo down to a drainage ditch to drink around, we only caught like 30 in an hour. The smallest was 4in and her biggest was about a foot long

the grind of sorting the fishing gear

So we're moving outta state, to someplace with better opportunities and much simpler regs, and now I'm going through a garage packed with gear. Luckily i know the area we're going and I can adapt a lot of stuff but just sorting through it all and packing let alone deciding of it's worth taking is so...

Re: whats the worst lure you have ever bought?

Hands down the worst was those helicopter lures they advertised on tv years ago. Never got a bite, let alone a fish but boy howdy did they twist your line into the prettiest rats nest you ever did see ](*,)

Re: Facebook salmon conservation group

What anglers are losing at in the salmon fisheries debates is the public perception. Most assume we all hate the tribes on racial basis and that we're predominately beer drinking cavemen. In my opinion any group that devolves into cursing and such just hurts our arguments. The tribes have public per...

Re: To use or not to use: Nail Polish to touch up lures and hooks?

I pour my own jigheads and paint them with nail polish all the time. I use it to touch up buzzbomb and darts or give them a little bit different look. It's quick, easy, and cheap that's why I use it. Besides some of the places I'll toss a jig, it'll be long lost before the nail polish chips off :-" ...

Re: Is it legal to use a crab snare on one pole and fish with another pole at the same time.

I called the dept on this matter before. The answer I got was it was legal to use up 2 rods with castables crab snares as your crab gear units and still use another rod to target fin fish(thier term for fish). While i never used 2 rod snares at once, I've had several encounters with wardens while us...

Re: Buy Barbed or Barbless for salmon

I haven't seen a warden get too picky about crimped barbs. The worst I've seen so far is the warden telling the guy to crimp it down a bit more. I'm sure there might be one out there that's real picky and I've heard the rumors of the piece of panty hose / cotton ball test but I haven't seen it. Pret...

Re: Shortbus/Pro Troll 360 Flashers in Puget Sound area 9 and 10 questions?

I can't speak for that rig, but I will say over the years I've tried a lot different things in the sound that wasnt following the tried and true. Some worked ok, some were duds, but a couple made their way into my regular rotation. So my suggestion is give it a whirl and see what it does for you.

Pretty sure that'd fall in the department's derby rules. By the way the law is writren you can't even bet a buck on big fish for the day with a couple buddies without a permit.

Re: River salmon season

Just keep in mind how many river seasons actually shape up like the reg book originally shows. That said I'm really hoping for a Skagit or cascade silver season since it's the closest fishery to me lol
