    Saltwater General Discussion
    I had this situation happen to me a while back, and it's still kinda bothering me. I was trolling out at the Cap, and it was pretty busy out there. I do my best to keep out of people's way, and really try to anticipate what the other boats are going to do. I rarely get upset with people who...

  16. West Coast

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Just got back from my first trip to Port Renfrew. I highly suggest a trip there for anyone who wants to hit the different types of salmon in one day. Had springs, coho, and also took some time to work the muscles hauling up halibut. Could have targeted sockeye also, but I have enough from local...
