I'm in, and in the Monroe area, so I could coordinate with others in the area.  I know jackelope is nearby, so I can at least coordinate with him for pickup and delivery.

Thanks!
Dave

I'd be very interested as well!
I worry about belonging to a club that accepts people like me as members.

I'm out near Maple Valley and will meet up with Chris next week.  I can meet him anytime if anybody wants to procure any out here.  I will deliver any where near here.  Let me know.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

So many free days, so few fish....  Wait, I changed my mind.  Maybe the best season ever on PS.

Fishing has been a little spotty, and logistics this week are gonna be tough - I still need to get wheels out to the coast (no transit service on Sunday... so if anybody wants to earn a few bucks and haul me from Neah Bay to Port Angeles today let me know!) and fix a few things on the boat.   I'll be starting a new thread today and looking to schedule meet-ups after I can get the truck out here.  Thanks again for all the interest -

Chris

Read this article the other day and thought Id post it up. At the end there is a short video of the fishing boat capsizing. The tidal current is that strong!

Very fortunate nobody was hurt.  Water is scary powerful and things happen in the blink of an eye.

The tides there can run up to 4 knots! Add some wind and things can get hairy quick!

Thought I'd post up a couple "experience" vids from my time in SE this year. No actual fishing videos, though.  When you've seen as many dead fish as I have the novelty wears off after a bit.

How'd your season end up Skillet? I just gave up on the Copper but not for lack of fish. Had 1650 lbs of silvers on the Thurs opener. And the price is darn decent this year. Big fish this year too. Had an honest 11 lb average for most of the season. Had one small delivery of 18 fish a couple eriods ago that averaged 14 lbs, Our normal average is 9-10 lbs.

The canneries are buying tomorrow for the last period of the year but I have friends flying in to drive home with me starting Thurs, so I elected to skip it and put boat and gear away and get ready for the trip home. Never had a huge silver period this year due to 400 boats fishing vs our normal 200 for silvers, but it was steady OK fishing so I ended up with a decent season. And the weather the last 3 1/2 weeks was unbelievable. Less than 15kt winds that whole time and mostly variable under 10. The glassy ocean didn't help me either as it allowed lots of boats to fish outside which slowed fishing inside where I usually fish. But I can't complain with how the season turned out considering the Copper sockeye run was a bust. Chums saved my season this year. Put in some very big openers on them. All in all it was a lousy summer with a few golden moments and ended up with a decent season put in.

Here's a few shots from this summer. The Blackfish is a small 3 ft porpoise we have in the area. It's not even acknowledged as existing by fish and game, but we have quite a few of them in our area. The Sandhill crane migration always signals the end of the season.

Here's a couple more. A wild sunrise from a few days ago. Kanak Island, my home for silver season.  And some guys working on nets on a closure.
