RE:weyhauser land permision

Gian, Wow, sounds like a chore, and not positively productive one. Can't say I'm surprised by your findings though. I grew up in the Tri-Cities. Used to hunt out my back door. My Dad and I'd go on overnight fishing trips all along the Columbia, Yakima, and Snake rivers in and throughout southeast Wa...

RE:any ideas?

Sharpshooter, like bodofish said, you're in a great place for both. I grew up in Richland. I'd catch crawdads on the Yakima from under the rocks by hand and immediately use them for bass bait. Crawfish and catfish inhabit almost every water source over there. If you're looking for a lake, try the po...

RE:Potential Boat Project?

kickerfish is right. My brother has a 14' Smokercraft that does quite nicely as a bass boat. The front section from the nose to the second to last bench has been decked over with plywood, the rounded floor between the last and second to last bench has had a piece of plywood placed down to "flatten" ...

I missed that "must be dead at least 5 hours first" part. I thought those fish looked mushy to begin with. Yummy.

De-boning fish

Ok guys,
I'm almost afraid to post this one. :colors:
This was sent to me as a joke, but seriously I gotta admit it looks like a pretty cool idea. My question is, would it actually work.
Anyone ever hear of these or actually use one?

RE:Speaking of Sqawfish, what's the strangest thing you've eaten?

My wife and I were eating sushi at a place in Bellevue a few years ago and I had a roll that had tempura shrimp in it. Next to my plate they placed a bowl of shrimp heads that had also been fried with the tempura batter, eyes, antenna and all. I looked at my wife and said, "what do I do with this?" ...

RE:what do steelhead eat?

Good luck out there gian. I have never fished this side of the state for steelies, but grew up fishing the Columbia over by the Tri-Cities. For bait we always used shrimp with added anise scent below a couple of colorful corkies with a small weight. All that went below a stick bobber at about 5-8 fe...

RE:Looking for a good crabbing pier in south sound area.

Have you looked at the Fox Island pier? A bit of a trek, but it's a nice little place. Never crabbed there, so not sure what it's like in that regard. Incoming tide is usually considered best time, but have had luck on both incoming and outgoing tides. Good luck.

HillbillyGeek is right. The best way to get the most out of your batteries it to try not to let them fall below 50% charge (damn near impossible when you want to be out all day trolling and using a fishfinder #-o ), don't let them sit uncharged for long, keep the water level full, and use a "smart" ...

RE:Where to fish near Pullman, WA?

Have you thought about driving down to the Snake? Bass, crappie, sturgeon, steelhead, trout, etc.
You can also take a drive north towards Cheney and there are a lot of seep lakes up there that hold some nice trout. Unfortunately it does take some driving any way you cut it. Good luck.

Beerman, I have a cousin in the Tri-Cities who fishes for sturgeon from shore and has had success. Not sure of the set up he uses, but he and buddy were able to land a 9 footer over the summer, although he said it took both of them to do it. Of course they couldn't keep it. My Dad and Uncles also us...

Anyone Still Fishing Sammamish for Salmon?

I've been taking a peek at the lake from I-90 when I drive by, but don't see many boats out on the water that seem to be fishing when I go by. I have been thinking of going and trying a line, but don't want to waste my time if the fish have stopped biting. Any recent news/reports?

RE:The illusive Geoduck...........

I had the mud-stink problem in Penn Cove. My fingers turned black and stunk for a couple days. There, it smelled more like sulfur. I think it's pretty common around Puget Sound. Some of the stink is probably/most likely due to pollution, but I'm sure some of it is just natural due to the decaying de...

RE:Fishtrap Lake questions

I've fished that lake a couple of times by boat. Paid to stay at the resort and launch. I suggest trolling an F4 red flatfish about 60 to 70 feet behind the boat at a pretty slow rate. That is what did it for us. Got a lot of Triploids that way. The resort also rents boats if you don't have one. I d...

RE:Looking for a decent lake in the 509 area code that has boat rentals

The resort on Fishtrap Lake, south of Cheney, used to rent boats....think they were 14 foot aluminums though. There are some nice triploid rainbows in that lake if you have a trolling motor. When I was a kid my dad rented a 14 or 16 foot aluminum from Mar Don. We brought our own outboard, but we had...
