  1. Pretty much always cold on the water out there so dress warm. Grew up in Seattle, Dungeness Crab, ling cod, cabezon, rock cod. King, silver and Sockeye salmon (Sockeye's caught out of lake Washington). Halibut season in the straight of Juan de Fuca, USA season nowadays is very short, not sure about Canada. Used to fish out of Kamloops a little ways out of Vancouver but great trout fishing. I would also suggest a hiking to a lake in the cascade mountains, the trout from those lakes are amongst the tastiest I have ever had. Never tried but you could prob find a local guide for a fee. I would start with putting out crab traps for dungeness then target king and silver pretty much year round drifting cut plug herring or trolling depending on tide. Move on to some of the best bottom fishing saltwater has to offer. If you cant find a local guide I am sure there are plenty of charters. Worst case toss buzz bombs from a pier. I have brought up snagged rocks covered in scallops, sea cucumbers, rat fish (human teeth), dog fish (small shark with stinger), tom cod, true cod, kelp greenlings, sculpin, bull head, flounder, fish I could not ID. Had HUGE false killer whales jumping in front of my boat like dolphins do. When I was in my teens fishing with my father we had a humpback surface right next to our boat, WORST BREATH EVER! Depending on time of year you can happen into schools of shrimp that you snag with jig.... so much seafood to be had!
  2. Happened into a monster catfish night fishing for walleye in Lake Erie a few years back, What a great fight they put up!
  3. If this is the wrong place to ask please point me to the correct thread. Thinking of selling my salmon boat a 2015 PolarKraft 190 W/T, loaded to the gills, fully maintained and very low hours, did not leave the showroom until 2017. Unable to add a few important items like the 24V minnkota with iPilot or the 9.9 kicker when getting a NADA estimate. Besides counselling after it is gone (if I sell it) any advice in regards to setting initial asking price?
  4. I have had custom glass made for home stuff, not sure if a boat is safety glass or not but if you cant source it from a boat shop, even if you can it may be worth contacting a custom glass shop. When I had to flip a destroyed rental there was a glass shop in medina NY that did a bunch of work for me. It was in an alley I would drop off frames with broken glass and get them back with new glass for next to nothing, sorry I don't recall the name of the place.
  5. I will be out later for dusk, last week it was gangbusters in 350 FOW well west of the launch.
  6. Nice report, only pattern I found was when I was near 350 FOW the fish were biting. Was out for a few hours west of Wilson Sunday afternoon, did not mark any bait. 1, king, 1 coho and 2 nice steelhead, lost 3. Copper seemed to be the biggest producer. All spoons, orange crush, purple DW (dont recall name) and NBK. Speed at ball around 2.1, temp varied in the low 40's at 70 ft down, spread between 30 and 70 ft down.
  7. Bay rats, regular and jointed rapala in the spring, shallow early on if the water is clear. If the water is too scummy I run out to the edge and skim the bottom off riggers with spoons for lakers, they fight real well in the spring. Itching to go fishing!
  8. crapshoot after this wind but it is the time of year to start nailing matures inside regardless of down temp.
  9. Started late morning in about 100 FOW and worked shallow, best luck was between 80 and 90, flasher fly almost on bottom was best, took one on green NBK as well. Marked lots of fish and lots of bait. Currents not as bad as last week went 3 for 5, lost a nice one right behind the boat.
  10. I thought about listing badfish but kind of more about Heroin then water right? RIP Bradley Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (takes place in the rain) Charon - Kind Diamond Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden (ship turns out OK, crew not so much)
  11. a little late but cant leave out the classic, Baby Shark Baby Shark do do do do do do
  12. Good news, no fleas. Started in 430 FOW nearly straight out maybe a bit east. 48 degrees about 75ft down but varied a bit until fishhawk transducer wire to battery pack broke.. New battery pack is on its way ($15 dollar part). Rigger popped before we finished putting in, buddy picked it up, nothing and I see what was most likely a steelhead jump twice behind the boat. After 3 hours of fishing between 50 and 100ft down and nothing to show we picked up and went inside near coal plant, setup at 150, went as shallow as 90, marked bait and fish, lost another jumper but at least got to fight it for a minute. Learned that carrying extra AA batteries for transducer is just not enough some days
  13. Im heading out of Olcott in an hour or so, reading about bait inside and fish caught deep too.... anyone want to chime in? I will check the app once I am past the break wall. Tight Lines!
  14. Agreed it is slow, yesterday I got out late afternoon took 1 decent bow and a shaker west of olcott 400 ish FOW down about 70ft, spin doctor gator and atomic fly. It was absolutely beautiful on the lake yesterday. Seems to be same as last year around same time when most matures were not biting, should normalize soon.... Missing coho, boated only one keeper all year .
  15. I am an android guy, cant speak to the issue you are having but have deleted the app before on past phones with no issues, account remains. To be clear your account is contained on a server somewhere, removing the app from your phone will not delete your account. Long as you know your username then worst case you will have to reset your password
