Re: New boat to dad and I. 30' Searay

Well dad's health isn't that great and he loves salmon fishing, so making him happy is more important now I think.

New boat to dad and I. 30' Searay

New to us, a 30' searay weekender, twin 260 hp inboards, 19 knot cruise speed at 12 gph, and 34 knot wide open. She's 30' long, 11'6" wide and weighs 12,000 lbs. Unfortunately won't be diving out of her as she will be moored in Ilwaco, Wa. and the columbia river kinda messes up the vis. But who...

Re: Anyone Using a FFM?

Re: Driftwood 11-1, or, SONUFABITCH THAT HURTS

Another reason I like my full face mask. My dive buddy got it twice the same weekend in the face, didn't see them until it was too late, got stung across the face. Even as tough as my hands got in my commercial fishing days, cleaning the lines of them time after time, my hands burned bad by the end ...

Thanks Folks! I am still pondering the idea of buying another used suit. I still cannot see myself spending so much money in a new one... Right now I am busy fixing the biggest leak ever...

Has anyone dove Cascade Head, Oregon?

Wondering if anyone has dove this area. I commercial fished out of pacific city for years, and once in a while the salmon season would open south of cascade head before up north, so we would run down there to fish. Some of the Dorys would trailer down and go out of the salmon river. It looks like a ...

Re: Washington Crab Regs in 2011

I commercial fished for years in Oregon. I know a lot of crabbers that make one trip in december when the season opens, then bring their pots back in.

Re: Crabbing in Oregon

What little bit of chasing crabs I've done diving, I haven't had much luck with finding any big enough. To better your odds, I'd bait the little buggers in, maybe toss some bait in where you will be diving before suiting up, at least that way they would be more concentrated in an area instead of sca...

Re: Crabbing in Oregon

Are you diving for them or using pots/traps? I've never crabbed in Netarts, but crab harbor can be good in Garibaldi. There are some good areas down at Newport also. And although I haven't been to Nehalem in years, it use to be very good. All of course on incoming tides. Outgoing tides, you're liabl...
