Re: Lake Washington Boat Launch in Kenmore

The slough is doable with almost any OB. Just keep your line leaving the slough. That said, take it slow and be aware of the depth. As with Mike's boat there are times when I have to tilt the main on my 21' Thunderjet to get to the deeper water. They used to dredge the lower slough. In my uneducated...

Re: Winter glove recommendations??

I have a pair of gloves similar to the Simms previously described. They work great just don't wipe your cold nose with the back of the glove or the velcro will get you.

I got mine at Outdoor Emporium in Seattle for about 15 dollars. OE has quite a collection of purpose based gloves.

Re: ISO: Starboard

Last time I purchased Starboard I ordered through Amazon. It was a Amazon Prime purchase so I got it in 2 days. It was a special purchase, I needed 1.5" sheet to fab into a couple custom hinges.

Re: North sound launches

Not sure where you plan to fish but the State Park launch on Cornet Bay is an excellent north sound option. Accessible at all tides, plenty parking and easy access to MA 6, 7 & 8-1.

Chris, 2 or 3 years ago I posted this as a method for loading lead core on smaller reels. I hope that it helps. "Appologies up front, I'm typing this on my smarter than me phone...

Request for Prayers

Request for Prayers I am not sure where I am going to go with this and it is just possible that in sharing what I am about to share it is an attempt to shed some of my own grief. That said; the request for prayers is for my daughter, her husband and their precious little boy. After spending Sunday m...

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

A star trap or crab-ring on a light rope and your perch fishing gear may be a better option. You can either drop or throw the crab gear from your chosen location and then fish for perch while they soak. There would be no question about gear restrictions and easy-peasy.

Re: Natives given the “ok” to kill seals?

An interesting video on the subject.

The explosion in our Puget Sound seal population could very well be the catalyst for our declining chinook stocks.

Re: Herring strips with Hoochies

I'm a herring-strip guy. I take whatever size herring I have, fillet them and then cut the fillet into approximately 1/4" strips. The strips are then layered with rock salt in a 1 quart freezer bag and put in the fridge overnight. After the cold soak they can be stored in the freezer. I do not use a...

Re: Any experience with using 'Closed cell foam-- Pool Noodles' for flotation within boat?

Ping-pong balls? Interesting?? Is this just a random idea, or have you heard of it being done? It kind of just seems like the amount of air held in a ton of ping pong balls still wouldn’t be much of a gain in flotation. But I will ponder this. I have not used them but a year or so ago I was researc...

Re: Downrigger Weight Snubber Vs bumper

I use the snubbers with a long-line clamp to attach the ball. While I don't nesseccarily subscribe to the shock protection side of it, I do find the snubbers very "handy". I have problems with my hands and the thicker diameter of the snubbers makes it possible for me to handle my----downrigger weigh...
