Just to be clear here. I am in no way asking for a hand out and certainly don’t want it to come across that way. I just have no idea about fishing spots on this side of the state. I appreciate all the responses.

I don't think anyone on here would call this a handout.

If a trip to the coast is possible I will gladly arrange a float with a good guide in Forks for you.  Should be decent weather and some spring kings and summer coho around. Shoot me a p.m. and I'll make all the arrangements.

Tagging,  once a plan starts coming together I am in for a $100 as well.

You guys are much too generous. I don’t even know what to say or how to thank you all. As things progress and we have a better idea of timelines, I will let you all know. I know once we are out of the hospital he has to  be within 1 hour of Seattle until around mid July, by then his immune system will be kicking in a little and he will have a little more freedom.

My best bud is the guide for Puget Sound Sport Fishing out of Edmonds.  June-August are really good times for puget sound coho.  I'll keep an eye on this topic and reach out to see what he can offer.

That sounds like a blast. I will definitely stay in touch as we closer. Thanks

I'm in for another $100. As the official HW Secret Santa, I'll get a list of doners going.

Yes....this.

If he is Jonesing for bass, we can hook him up there too.  I know several of us have full tournament set-ups.  I have everything needed up in Snohomish County but can travel too.  Several lakes to choose from.  Decent shots at good size smallies and largies.  You just show up and the rest is covered.

I would also throw in for the charter if that is the main plan.
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.

Count me in if you need lodging for an overnight somewhere the night before or after a fishing trip. I'll cover 1 night.

Also, I live near Bremerton and would be glad to take him out this summer or fall for salmon. If he's not strong enough to get out this summer, let's plan a trip for next summer. We would be glad to host you for a couple days, put you guys up in an AirBnB, and cover your transportation costs and meals.

You and your wife (I'm assuming) are probably exhausted too and need a break. Let me know if you're able to get away for a night or two. I'd be glad to donate a couple nights at an airbnb to unwind and rest (even if it means later this fall when your little man is out of the hospital).
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Nobody on a charter boat is easy, we just book out the boat for you. Could be just you and your son and the boat crew. Im an east side so not much help logistically but I'll offer up the first $100 to make whatever needs done done.

As for not asking for handouts, you lost a say in that after you posted because thats what we do here sir  :chuckle:  let your boy know we are all in his corner. He is in the best place he could possibly be.
Put me down for 100 as well!

I'm in for a cash donation or could also take you guys out on my boat if H2O isn't available.  I'll try to keep an eye on this thread, if somebody organizes something please PM me if I don't post.

I am wondering if it would be better to start ‘smaller’, depending on how he is doing? He may not have much stamina.
Maybe a pan fish outing to start with? Still working on getting my boat repaired or I would offer.
Lake Wa or Samamish would be a good fit distance and fishing quality.
