Re: Unexpensive Boat for Saltwater Fishing recommendations

I've seen a lot of guys fishing the sound in kayaks (close to shore) though they aren't as cheap as the raft you posted. Not sure what your budget or storage requirements are, but a small aluminum boat could easily be towed with a car, not a truck.

Re: Point No Point & Bush Point Beach Fishing

Your right. Don't know why I was thinking 4700. Should verify my aging memory before I type.

Re: anybody seeing pinks yet?

With pinks so plentiful (that is, plenty to go around) it would be great to see everyone post their reports on the site.

Re: anybody seeing pinks yet?

All the reports I've seen have been off the beach. Dumb question, but is there any reason they wouldn't be catchable by boat as well? Is it just more beach goers report their catches on social media?

Re: Swimstep/Swim Platform

I looked into a swim platform for a Bluewater Sportsman I used to have. I think it was from Swim Platforms, Inc. They wanted $1500.00 and that seemed to be the going rate--too much for me. Good luck though!

Re: Boat Launch Option.

Mid-sound is a pretty big area and has two sides to it. I'm in Bellevue and usually launch out of Everett or Edmonds (sling launch). There's also launches at shilshole and Mukilteo. Any would be fine for your boat. Mukilteo can get dicey when the waters rough I've heard, but doubt you'd be trying th...

Re: rigged hoochie storage

For salmon sized I use the 5x7 (ish) dense foam sheets. The squid doesn't have to wrap around it. Terribly expensive from the store but I'm sure there's a homemade option.

Re: Forum Guidelines and Expectations

Hi all, I'd like to know the etiquette when someone asks for a guide recommendation and there doesn't appear to be a sponsor who would provide the requested service. Should we ignore the question? pm them? This came up over a Westport charter (where I was very nicely reminded of the rule, thanks Nat...

Re: Lake Entiat Northern Pikeminnow Derby

I'm not hitting the derby but I'd love any tips folks have for catching these things in Entiat. We go over to Lincoln Rock every year and it would be fun to do my part to save the smolts! (I'm hoping that folks don't care too much about giving out secret locations for pikeminnow)

Re: Legalities of WDFW Police personal property search

Probable cause is different than a warrant. The cop on the street or the game warden can stop you and look in your bag if he has probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. This is different than your home--they need a warrant to enter and probable cause is insufficient.
