 "A venturesome minority will always be eager to get off on their own,
and no obstacle should be placed in their path;
let them take risk, for God sake, let them get lost, sun burnt, stranded, drowned,
eaten by bears, buried alive under avalanches -
that is the right and privilege of any free American."
--Edward Abbey--

Heres how I decide to “GO” or not..

Keep in mind that these are just forecasts, they can be much better and they can be much worse.  With experience, and access to several sources, you will get better and better at finding those
“doable” days.  Keep in mind if you only fish when the forecast is  “absolutely perfect” you won’t fish much.  Sometimes you just need make an educated guess and “roll the dice”,  heading to the
coast to decide if its “doable” when you get there.

Kayak downrigger fishing just works - it works even better thanks to Scotty’s Depthmaster downrigger. It’s is a well-built workhorse that has no problem handling a big weight andis really easy to operate. I’ve spent over 6 months using the Depthmaster putting it through some of the nastiest to some of the best conditions that Puget Sound and various lakes could muster up and after it all there’s no other way I’d downrigger fish from my kayak.

The Gerber Rivermate safety knife
Reviewed by Zee

After my last safety knife, rusting to oblivion, finally finding it's way to it's final resting place at the bottom of the Pacific it was time to check out a new one. I saw the Gerber Rivermate a few times and was a little intrigued with it's design. It is a little different than it's more popular counterpart, the River Runner, also made by Gerber so thought I'd check it out.

Rufus Report 11/29
by Pisco Sicko

The Noggin Yakker and I met up Sunday morning to scout out some new (to us) territory. We ended up at some of the netpen operations, off of Columbia River Road. The fish checker that greeted us reported that the fishing was slow, and had been for a couple of months. :(. Dang, that wasn't what we wanted to hear!
