That is a great idea....a little gift basket. Last year was very cool with the S4S lure but I like your idea very much. Tight lines.

Is there any kind of raffle type thing going on for this?  I'd put up a day of shrimping for two off south end of Lopez next Spring if there is.

They usually have awards and prizes, maybe a few raffles for boat owners but I never stay long enough afterwards to win anything. So, Ed, to save you the hassle of organizing I'll just come on by and I'll volunteer!

We are supposed to have thunder storms, wind and rain on Saturday. I hope it's not too bad, I'd like the soldiers to get out and have a good time.

Here is what NOAA is showing:


Today
S wind to 10 kt. Wind waves 1 ft or less.
Tonight

Variable wind to 10 kt in the evening...becoming light. Wind waves 1 ft or less. A chance of rain after midnight.

Fri

Light wind. Wind waves less than 1 ft. Rain.
Fri Night
Light wind. Wind waves less than 1 ft.
Sat

NW wind to 10 kt...becoming S 15 to 25 kt in the afternoon. Wind waves 1 ft or less...building to 2 to 4 ft in the afternoon.
Sat Night

S wind 10 to 20 kt. Wind waves 1 to 3 ft.
Sun
S wind 5 to 15 kt. Wind waves 2 ft or less.

Mon

Lets hope we get a decent morning, minimal wind and rain, and keep those waves down. If it kicks up in the afternoon we can head in a bit early.

Max ebb is about 9am.  I have a feeling its gonna be nasty earlier than NOAA predicts.  Hopefully I'm wrong and you guys can fish as long as you want.

Stop it now....I have no idea what the foul weather plans are. I've fished in some nasty but will leave it up to my guest on what we endure.

With the wind coming out of the South, I am hoping some of the smaller boats or ones that don't want to get tossed around if it get's rough will tuck in North of Mukilteo or head for the river. Should be plenty of fish North of the lighthouse in that bay. I plan to keep an eye on the winds, using the real time Washington State Ferry Weather info.

We want all the boats and people to stay safe out there and will be watching the info as best as we can. I know we are going to discuss this with the captains on Friday night during the meeting at Harbor Marine.

 just off the oil docks to the north of the ferry terminal at Mukilteo is a very productive spot , it can be very good for silvers as well as the pinks. We will be fishing this area this afternoon to get an Idea of whats hanging there, gonna take a couple of the guys out tomorrow AM and take a look at a couple more spots and try to report back , between the predicted weather and the commercial guys out there right now, it might be little tougher than it has been but still should be able to put them on fish. I can PM anyone my cell number that is gonna be there and try to give you the most up to date info....I am also on vhf 68 just holler for FW.   or I can pm you my mmsi number if you can go that route on you chartplotter.

Forecast as of this evening:
Saturday: E wind 6 to 11 kt becoming SSW 19 to 29 kt in the morning. Winds could gust as high as 38 kt. Rain. Wind waves 1 ft or less building to 5 ft.

Sounds brutal. I'm delaying my drive up tomorrow and holding off on a decision until I hear back from Randy...

I'm concerned.  I want to take them fishing, not back into combat.

I've got my own email, not like he won't be busy enough, out to Randy.

I've got to tell you friends and neighbors, if this was a trip planned with a buddy I would cancel right now. If I was taking my family I wouldn't have even waited that long. My boat is an 18tf North River. It is solid and proven in some nasty water. However, with the forecast showing as bad as it is I don't know if I can safely and responsibly take our honored guests out.

I really do think they should consider canceling the event. I have no idea the issue that would cause logistically but for me the safety and comfort of our guests has got to come first.

Anyone else as concerned as I am?

I'm just as concerned as you are H20. It will tough fishing in the river in that kind of wind as well. I will bring my river gear and show up in the morning, but I have my doubts about actually getting on the water.
