Best Crab Pots

At the risk of opening up heated discussion, I'm looking for advice on new crab pots. I have two of the folding square jobbers that are nearing the end of their life. They've been good, but I'm wondering if there is something better. I have one of the "commercial style" round stainless steel pots bu...

Re: Adding registered owner

You'll both need to go down together or have the forms notarized in advance. It's pretty much the same process as if you were selling it to someone else. When I told the wife that she had to make a trip to the DMV, her desire to be on the title went away!

Re: Fishing Lake Roosevelt

Hi Hewsfisher, I too am hitting Roosevelt for the first time on one of the busiest weekends of the year! We're staying at Seven Bays. Is there a decent kokanee fishery in that area or would we have to head downstream? I'm not overly picky in my species but would like to catch one of them. Thanks Gary

Re: Kokanee Tackle Box

Hi Josh and all, I've seen pics of kokanee gear like you mention--dozens of flashers, spinners, etc. 3 or more scents. Going back to 7th grade math, that's like a gazillion combos. How do you figure out what's right for a particular day? I tend to drag something around for at least a half hour befor...

Re: Endangered Species Act under attack

I wouldn't underestimate the impact of calling your member of congress. I'm in a Demo district, so it would be preachin' to the choir, but the idea some Repubs had of selling off public land got quashed pretty quickly when the hunt/fish groups let it be known they did not favor it. My daughter's in ...

Camano Island Searun

Hi All, I'm going up to Camano this weekend for a family gig. I thought about trying for searun cutthroat, but a quick Google says they don't start coming on in the north sound until the end of March. Anyone know if that is the case? Would I just be getting casting practice (which I need) if I tried...

Re: Focus on Fee Increase as a Club Hits Your Head

Here's another tidbit in the bill to SB 5718:
Additionally, the department must consider the public's interest in having food fish available for purchase by consumers.
This is after the "equitable" balance between sport and commercial

Any reviews of the first couple days of the show? I'm thinking about going tomorrow with nothing in particular in mind.

Re: Seattle Boat show

The seminar schedule is posted on the boat show website. I went to both the boat show and sportsmans show last 2 years and the sportsmans show had far more fishing product vendors, as you would expect. Boat show is great for electronics and some good deals on gear.

Re: Letter sent requesting Tribal/WDFW NOF process be open.

Good letter. I generally agree, though this is one of those "be careful what you ask for things." Open to the public won't be limited to just the sport fishermen. I'd imagine our friends at the Wild Fish Conservancy will want to attend as well.

Happy all, I'd like to fish upriver brights this year. I have a 21 foot I/O prop and am a bit worried about the launch situation. Any thoughts on Tri/cities fishing? I don't see a lot of reports from that area of the river. As far as the reach any opinions/advice on launches? I fished with Kyle Jone...

Re: Fishing License Data Breach

Lampwick hit the nail on the head--the only way to protect information is to not collect it in the first place. Every system is vulnerable to attack as we've seen countless times over the past few years. When its just a name and credit card number, there's not a whole lot of longlasting damage. But ...

Re: Recommendations On Boat Covers For Bass Trackers?

It was several years ago. I want to say $275? Under $300 for sure, but not much. The Sunbrella fabric was quite a bit more. I had a fish and ski (which was pretty much a ski boat hull) and it fit perfect except for not being reinforced around the trolling motor mounting plate. It too had many straps...

Re: Recommendations On Boat Covers For Bass Trackers?

For my prior boat, I bought a "semi-custom" cover from Savvy Boater in Portland. At that time they sell Carver and Westland covers in various fabrics. They had two methods 1) the specific boat if they have it in their specs or 2) based on general characteristics--type of boat, length, beam, etc. I b...
