Re: Post-Season Crab Pot Pull?

Recovering lost gear for people would be cool but if your worried about the pots killing crab the game regs require a section of cotton line that will rot out and open the mesh of the pot thus releasing any crab still in it.

Re: Showing off Driftwood

Thank you for being such a good tour guide! I had a great time looking around and seeing what was there. After salmon season closes we should go on another dive to collect the hundreds of buzz bombs that will surely be all over the bottom! It was great diving with you again and can't wait till the n...

Re: What cylinder do you dive, and why?

Make a few dives and see how you do. As others have said, if your new and your air consumption is high, go big! I own two LP85's and two AL80's and dive a dry suit. Some time around 54 dives my consumption really came down. On a recent dive with Blaiz and Coulterboy, at the end of the dive I had th...

Re: I want to dive this weekend...

I was thinking about being in the water about 14:00 to make sure the flood has started and leave you plenty of time to head south for more diving. My last dive at Muk two weeks ago was in the middle of a 13 foot flood and once past 40 feet we really didn't experience any current. Sounds crazy I know...

Re: I want to dive this weekend...

Would you be interested in Mukilteo? I was thinking about an afternoon dive on Saturday. The only thing I can promise to show you is the troll and the geodome plus a couple hundred dungeness crab unless they have already been caught.

I have the exact same issue. About 20 minutes into a dive a usually get a good burp. If I eat within an hour before the dive or too much, I come close to feeding the fish!

My take is the same as J's. Very glad I made the trip and got to see the place. I feel lucky not to have holed my suit. There were lots of things just waiting for the chance. The DM said that this was the largest group they had taken in and that we did have more silt problems because of it. I would ...

Re: NWDC Clothing

I notice that they don't have any T-shirts or sweatshirts available in the store. Is there any way to make those available? I assume someone in a position of authority has to authorize the use of the club logo before a shirt could be ordered.

Re: Pinnacle and Pulali today

Thanks so much for the chance to dive this awesome spot! It was really fun diving out of an inflatable for the first time and I would do it again in a minute. Next time I will borrow some 130's so we can spend more time seeing the sights.

Re: Viz Reports Thread

Saturday 4/2. T dock. First 12-15 feet was coffee with lots of cream then it opened up to 12 feet or so all the way down to 70 feet. Saw my first two Stubby Squid today. That made the trip over worth it right there.

Re: Mukilteo clay ledges, T-dock alternative

Glad you had a great dive and thanks for the update on the Vis! A newly certified buddy and I are diving the clay walls on Saturday. I was planning on a second dive at the T dock. This is the first I had heard about it being closed. How long will it be off limits?

Re: Sunday Morning Early Bird Run

I was at Keystone Wednesday and had 8-10' vis but the fish count was way down from my last dive there in October. I did catch a very light current day. I actually had to swim from the pilings to the jetty! Never happened before. Good luck on your Sunday dive.

Re: Inland Diver

I would be glad to! On one dive you can see a wrecked mid fifties Ford car and a wall that stretches from near the surface down to 90 feet. On my last dive I caught a 24" Burbot by hand in 55 feet of water. PM me if you get the notion and we can set up a day and time.

Greetings. I am from Waterville, Wa and dive in the sound as often as I can with local buddies or buddies met on the beach while gearing up. Here at home I dive in Lake Chelan. It is no comparison to Puget Sound but there are fish and other life to see and even some wrecks. My 13 year old son and I ...
