And once again I am correct in my predictions. FNF glad you're happy ya fish horder. :wink: Saw ya down around Hammond this season with a big smile.
Heres the damper. 1 nook in the estuary, 4 in Radioactive City. Happens every year. Just kinda gets to a guy a bit. Enough sour grapes. Just restating what I said earlier in the season when they set the limits. Sure gonna be a lot of wasted fishies. But not if FNF is there. You guiding up the son? :grin:
C&E,where's the logic in this? It would appear the Game commision is saving fish for some other user group. And here's another head scratcher,the Chinook fish hatchery raises tules. What in the world for? Seems like a waste of fish food.
I don't chase those old boots. After all the Salmon I got to play with this year, I'd rather chase the nocturnal slime rockets. For all the fish in the system, it is still kinda slow. Got to see another near miss at McNary last night. A huge barge entered the forebay and the trollers there almost refused to budge. 5 series of 5 blasts makes for 25 honks! Keyripes they are loud! I clear out before any of the honking but some people like to play chicken.Those people(idiots) have brass cahones! I sure would have liked to have the more liberal limits when I was down below. 4 boots doesn't make much sense. :cheers:
I agree with the masses. We were turning back URB's 3 weeks ago (and driving 700 miles for the weekend), but now I can keep a bunch in my back yard. Boots=Yuck. Does anyone know when the tules are ever good? Like in June at Westport, or do you have to Vancouver Island to get them when they're still nice? I don't know anything about that special "slime run" of fish.
Reading through these responses, and seeing that you all are "ol-timers" (judging from the number of posts that you have made...) I have a question! :whazzup: The numbers of salmon have increased dramatically and I see they are listed in the fall run column.
Why is it that "you all" are referring to them as "Old Boots"? :shrug: Shouldn't these be fresh salmon on a recent run? Or do they deterioriate that quickly when reaching the warm Handford reach waters? :blush: Thanks :smile:
No, not really, the fish that hang in the Hanford reach were chromers at Buoy 10. But they spawn in the fine glowing gravel of the land of Nuclear and FNF waste. Any fish that gets to the spawn cycle inherently starts taking on the hue of a fine pair of Doc Martens...
That's the truth! About the springers! And we all know you don't fish for them at the reach! LOL! Right Steve!Cuz nothings better than a down river fish in April!LOL!MMMM! I think I will Pull some of my stash out of the frezzer!You need a road trip to T-bay! Those fish are as close to a springer you will get this time of year! Tight lines! ...Shakerfish!....
