Take a close look at Point Defiance and Dalco Passage fishing spots you will know why it is considered one of the best places for salmon fishing in the South Puget Sound.
Current & Back Eddy
The rough, shallow waterway, called a sill is a remnant from the long ago glacial process. This is where water is squeezed through the narrow passage of the Tacoma Narrows waterway. The current speeds up as water is exchanged between southern basin and the Eastern Passage. These extremely fast currents cause a large back eddy. As they reach Point Defiance the currents reverse direction and push bait fish in and against the Clay Banks and Owens Beach.
Did you ever wonder how much revenue WDFW makes from fines or licenses? I decided to see if I could find this information. After all, it should be public information, right? It turns out that I had to estimate what the Washington public spends on fine and forfeitures using several sources, I simply could not find this anywhere. As for the licenses, the WDFW tells us how much we spend.
If you like deep sea fishing (or I should say, fishing the sea deep) you will love the deep water lingcod experience. It would be a mistake to think of a deep water lingcod trip as an ordinary outing for lingcod, like in the Puget Sound. Catching a 20 pound lingcod is common, with some anglers catching 30+ pounders daily. Come prepared with at least a two-speed reel….. or better yet an electric. Otherwise checking your bait becomes a real chore.
If you are like me, you have many saltwater rods that serve different purposes. For example, I have my salmon rods, my halibut rods, bottom fishing rods, and tuna rods. Finding a place to store all these rods in an orderly fashion is often a challenge for us anglers. I am going to explain how you can build a cheap, easy, awesome, DIY Fishing rod holder.
I don’t know if you have seen Bubba Blade’s electric knife, but it is awesome! I bought me one and cleaning fish hasn’t been the same.
The knife comes with 2 electric lithium ion batteries, 4 sets of blades, and a charger. It all comes in a red padded foam case knife motor, blades, batteries, and charger.
Bubba’s electric knife blades are ultra sharp and quiet. There is a 7 inch and 9 inch Flex blades for filleting and a 9 inch and 12 inch stiff blades also for filleting large fish or for steaking. My go to blade is the 9 inch Flex blade for filleting a salmon in a flash. I can literally fillet a salmon in just a minute.
The knife fits your hand great, which makes filleting a snap. Check out the video below of me filleting a coho salmon fast!
