Re: The joys of AR

Spokey, Good to hear your update on the AR fishing situation. I have fished in the South, just a bit for Gar. Man, look @ all the new cool species that you have discovered. So let me ask you this.. Remember how in WA. It’s all about ‘No live bait’ etc. When I go to Louisiana, it is CRAZY with live b...

Re: Those castable crab snares....

Thanks for the follow-up Spokey and Shad. I did wind up with 2 razor limits, and I think I never lost that last crab snare? It’s Ben awhile. I totally can see doing your own 50lb mono snares would be great. Admittedly, I can be lazy, so that sounds like I’d have to actually do something in my garage...

Re: Washington lake lodges? Looking for new ones to try.

I 2nd Spectacle Lake Resort. I stay there all the time and make it my base camp, while fishing other lakes in the area. It does have everything you need, but in the original poster’s thread you had described looking for “Lodges”. Spectacle is fine in Spring to July, but be careful when hot summer co...

Re: Washington lake lodges? Looking for new ones to try.

Consider Lake Quinault lodge. This is the only lake in the state where you can target and retain Dolly Varden. It is a tribal controlled fishery. BEAUTIFUL lodge and surroundings. Quality fishing. Low amount of people. Boat requires 5 min inspection prior to launching. Also, consider Lake Crescent l...

Re: ScuttleButt fishing contest - covid safe???

Speaking to the original thread.. When we interact with people around us, who maybe we interact with all the time, and they seem like ‘Practically family’... Realize that we really don’t know who everyone’s contact points are. I’m a nice guy to have in your boat. Got my own tackle, usually cover the...

Re: Those castable crab snares....

OK, 8 hours later... picked up another castable crab snare, this time bought ZIP TIES.
Heading out in AM. Also, first razor clam dig of 2020 is 0600 tomorrow AM.
Should be a good time if I don’t lose another crab snare.

Those castable crab snares....

Who out there has experience with those crab snares that you cast from shore? I’m taking about the ones that are size of a Rubix cube, and have multiple plastics snares to entangle the crab’s legs. I’m out here @ Roosevelt beach, WA. Coast. Participating in an online Surf Perch derby. Thought I’d pi...

Re: Wanted: 55+ gal aquarium

Thanks Phil, I appreciate your reply. Unfortunately things went South with the Craws in the livewell. I was bringing them water from my local lake, and going through a race to find an aquarium, but I didn’t quite make it. I did enjoy my crawfishing experience on Roosevelt though. Still got to write ...

Hewesbob, Thank you SO much for timely, spot on information. I’m just so excited to see this area. I am pretty well versed in most of the state, and I’ve watched so many Roosevelt reports fly by. Bummer to hear you say it was super slow, as well as fish checker confirms same thing. Walleye are new t...

Anybody familiar w/fishing Kettle Falls/Roosevelt?

OK, so I am building a little trip over to Roosevelt next month. I can find plenty of Intel/reports on the lower areas of Roosevelt, but my best lodging option is in Kettle Falls. It looks a little to me like that upper river area is more my kind of thing.. LOW jet ski/water ski count, and just very...

Looking for insight into all things ‘Lake Roosevelt’

Lake Roosevelt might be the last WA. state fishing bucket list place for me. I am thinking about taking my 1st trip over there 2nd or 3rd weekend in August. Can someone tell me a few things regarding which launch is a good launch, etc. but also the reservoir is so huge, that I probably need to know ...

Re: Heading to Indian creek

If you are talking about Rimrock lake, then just go to the Lake Reports section and choose Rimrock lake. You can read reports from previous years within the same general time of year, to help dial you in. Your thread title said “Indian Creek”. So that may throw people off a bit.

Re: Bass food options in Westside urban lakes

Thanks for your reply Fred. I realize that they are opportunistic, and of course anything bug that lands on the surface, etc. but these inner Seattle city lakes are amazingly sterile environments in regards to ANYTHING landing on the water. I totally am with you on the C/R, 100%. It might though be ...

Re: Bass food options in Westside urban lakes

I hear what you’re saying, but as far Bobber/night crawler the lake, the only species outside of LMB, is stocker trout, and yeah of course a good size bass could take down a (small) stocker rainbow, it just seems like it wouldn’t be the main dinner course. Thanks for replying.
