Re: Water Pump on Honda Outboard

Sounds like my older Honda 9.9 did, I dropped the lower unit (repair shop tried to scare me with corrosion potential, but no issue), pulled out all the little rubber bits that had accumulated everywhere and put the new impeller in. No problem and less than $20 (or would have been if I bought the rig...

Re: Lake Goodwin Boat Launch closing for the summer of 2018

They are also closing the launch at Kayak point park for the summer. Guess Snohomish county is doing all there repairs in that area at the same time, seems like they should stagger those closures.

Re: Strangest by Catch pictures!

Caught a Lamprey trolling lake Wa for Coho last week, unfortunately it popped off the hook before I could snap a picture. Actually went for the upper hook on a hootchie that had the shrimp on it. First I thought weeds, then snake (but I was 80 feet down), then I saw the sucker mouth. It was about 12...

Re: Salmon/Tuna charter recommendations

There are list of guides here on this site, under the Home then Services tab. Right now I would think Hanford reach for Kings or Puget sound rivers/salt for cohos. Tuna are about 40-60 miles off the coast so not sure if a 4 and 7 year old would like that long of a run.

Re: Breaking news: OPEN SEASON on Atlantic Salmon - is this real!?!?

Talked to the guy at Teds and was not sure, but said they have been caught on power bait. Something that matches the pellets that they are fed. Guess I have to find them first, then see if they want anything I have to offer. Maybe someone on here will have some luck and pass on the knowledge, I cert...

Re: Breaking news: OPEN SEASON on Atlantic Salmon - is this real!?!?

I will happen to be up in the San Juans this weekend, will see if I can help out the local salmon by salmon by catching a few of those. Anyone have ideas on what to use or depths? Are these more like kings , silvers, or ?? Should at least be good for smoking. This is a good lesson that we should not...

Re: Aluminum Boat - Foam Floatation - Cleaning - Corrosion

First you need to find out how the water is getting into the foam. Is there a leak around a seam, fish box or another location? Is the foam sealed in or just open to the bilge (which in my opinion would be a major deign flaw)? I would also question manufacturer, since they fixed it the first time ma...

Re: Riffe Lake License requirements - Do you need Columbia Endorsement?

Does not look like the way I read the regs, Mayfield and Scanewa do require CR and catch card because there are migrating salmon there, put there by WDFW as they are trapped at barrier dam. Riffe has no such requirement as the salmonoids there are landlocked. See Westside lakes special rules, looks ...

Re: Galvanic Corrosion

Kodacacher, Thanks for the update, just heard back from one of my ABYC contacts (was on vacation) and he confirmed that those outdrives have notoriously bad paint jobs. They just do not take all the care and necessary steps to coat aluminum. Follows Bodofish's advice and should be better than new. G...

Re: Where are the Baker Lake Sockeye?

I thought the 47K was the amount of fish actually returning to Baker. With less than 100 per fish that last couple days looking poor (probably the delay from the last days they were netted), either way. Still struggle to understand how the commercials and/or tribes are allowed 50% of estimated runs ...

Re: Galvanic Corrosion

Make sure the surface is clean underneath the anodes or they will not make proper contact, limiting effectiveness. Also if there is any white scale build up wire brush it off to expose clean metal, the oxides are not very conductive. Probably not an issue since you replaced the anodes a year ago, bu...

Re: Galvanic Corrosion

I would guess that stray current, not galvanic corrosion (which is typically a connection between dissimilar metals) is the root cause, but it is hard to tell exactly from the picture. I could not get a good look from the photo. The only way to test for that would be with the boat in the water and a...

Re: Looking for a guide

There are a few that are associated with this site, click on Home, Service, then Guides. Will give you a list for various locations so they can fill you in on details of what they will be fishing for around that date. That would be a good place to start.

Re: Planning A Salmon Trip

Depending on your timing the Snohomish/Skykomish may provide better options, lots of good bank access and it is not quite as large of a river as Skagit (think there are limited options on Skagit this year as well). Also there is the Samish, more like a big creek late August and Sept for Kings, comba...

Picked up a 1978 Glasply, hopefully it will treat me better. I am sure I will need some advice getting this all set up so I apprec...

Re: Trailer ??

New flapper and rubber tube (riser bellows) that go from riser to exhaust hose ordered, should be here next week. Might try running with old rubber piece (taped up to prevent exhaust or water leaks) on there with hose connected to get it warmed up and dried out. Once I have the new parts I may try b...

Thanks for all the tips and advice, nice to hear a similar story Larry (minus any good times in the water), and eternal optimism from Bodo! Drained out all the old oil, plugs were not too bad since they were new last fall, but did get some soot on them and looked like some water in the cylinders. So...

Re: Trailer ??

Yes water in the oil, got about an extra quart after only a few cranks according to the dip stick. I did not notice any water getting in running with the hose and I let that run enough to feel warm water coming out the exhaust side. Will be draining out everything this evening. Thought either cracke...
