RE:Skagit Kings

Yes, but only two can be adults and they have to be clipped. Also remember that this fishery is under different regulations than the July 9th opener for wild kings. As always, check the WDFW website frequently for emergency rules that may supersede the pamphlet publication.

RE:time to do some castin

Effective a couple weeks ago our household is less one income also. I have to say it's been a blessing in disguise though. Since I work from home, now we get to hang all day together, have lunch together, sneak out and catch a few trout together and then today she even mowed the lawn! The financial ...

RE:Skagit Kings

I'm taking Monday the 1st off and will be pounding the river all day. The area that will open on the first is from the Hwy 530 Bridge in Rockport to the Cascade River. It will be busy but as long as we don't get any big rain before the first, there will be a lot of fishable water available. Remember...

RE:Skagit Kings

Hey, this fishery is in my back yard and I plan to need additional salmon punch cards. There are some excellent gravel bars but I don't know how to access them from terra-firma. I will usually beach the boat to fish them. Overall the lower Skagit is a boat show. There are a ton of kings jumping in t...

RE:Kayak Fish Finder help

Try picking up the appropriate portable suction cup mount and then assembling it upside-down. Once assembled, lay it out flat and then stick it to the bottom of the yak. I used to have a kayak based guide service and had quite a number of kayaks. The technique noted above worked great for the client...

Boat Cover

I am looking for a custom boat cover manufacturer/canvas shop in the north end. Our aluminum skiff is an odd shape and catalogue boat covers are not available. Ideally we are looking for storage/towing cover. Please provide contact information and maybe a brief statement addressing your experience (...

RE:Password Changes and Blog Editing

It worked and thank you. I did have to make the revisions a couple times. It appears that after completing the revisions you have to move the curser to the end of the document and press enter before you hit the save button...learning curve stuff and for me the curve is always a long one.

RE:Cold start problems, Yamaha 20HP 4-stroke

A quick follow-up, just picked the boat up from Boondocks in Bellingham. Their mechanics are Yamaha 5-star certified and they were closer to home than the outfit in Everett. They seem like a great bunch of guys and they will have our future business (both boats). The long and short of it is that the...

Cold start problems, Yamaha 20HP 4-stroke

I run a newer Yamaha 20HP 4-stroke. Love the motor, its quiet, no smoke, is very smooth running and gets great economy (1-2 gallons per day fishing fresh water and 2-3 gallons per day trolling the salt). Over all it is a very reliable prop turner. The key here is “overall”. All though the motor star...

Introductions

An “Introductions” discussion would help to establish a sense of community on the forum. Possibly using an online questionnaire form including a bio, location, boat description… Along the same idea we should schedule semi-annual forum BBQs, one in the spring and one in the fall. Additionally we shou...
