Was a little lumpy on the canal. Backing down on gear was necessary and a concept some people apparently don't understand...saw some tangle issues between boats a little ways from us.
We avoided the crowds as always. No issues. 3 limit's in first two pots. Good size bugs to... Boat tied up and off the water by 11.

Yes, it was a little sporty in the Sound too, particularly in a 15' whaler.  I tried a new spot that is a little more protected.  Took a little bit to get the location dialed in, but then starting cranking and filled our limits in short order.  Hardly anyone where we were, it was nice not having to dodge other boats and pots.

I ended up in 7 and the weather was great.  We found a nice little spot to ourselves and only had to deal with the current which seemed to be significantly different than DeepZoom's predictions.

We did manage to hook two different derelict pots, one we brought in and one stuck to the bottom harder than I wanted to pull.  Even the one we got overheated my puller and let a bit of secret smoke out.

That's pretty good fishing for sure, probably better than 99.9% of the pots I've pulled on 24 hour soaks up here.  I can count the number of 10# pots (tail weight only), I've had on my boat on one hand.

I believe the Puget Sound spot prawn fishery has to be one of the best there is. I saw a listing for a Puget Sound commercial spot prawn permit on one of the brokerage sites for $330k a while ago, and it didn't last very long at all.  I heard a rumor from a guy that is plugged into the fleet that one recently traded at $370k as well.  Those are big numbers, and by my calc's and assumptions, the live weight dock price needs to be near $15/# to make it work. That's right at $30/# for tails, dock price!  :yike:  If anybody see them retailing at seafood shops anywhere I'd like to see what the prices are??  It's an interesting fishery, commercially, anyway.

We got our four limits again Sat..but I'm done for the year...had two of my bouys prop cut. Watched people do really stupid stuff...some people don't deserve to operate boat's....
And we normally avoid the crowds but people migrated into us Sat... mostly following their drifting pots...sigh .

Thanks for the info, that is a little higher than I thought it would be.  But so is everything else these days...
