Default Oregonians on THT?

I joined this forum last month looking for advice on adding trim tabs to our new boat. After reading the hundred or so replies I was fairly impressed with the collective knowledge of THT members!

After that thread had run its course I started browsing the forum in general.

It seems to me (I could be wrong) that this forum is mostly Floridian, followed by East Coast boaters, other Southerners, Midwesterners, and a sprinkling of West Coast and international people.

I am curious how many Oregon/SW Washington people are on this forum? I frequent iFish for fish/crab reports, but they canít hold a candle to THT for wintertime drama threads (must be the Florida influence) or for discussion of boats not made of aluminum...

Just north of you by 50-70 miles , fish the Columbia with the sled and the ocean with the pilothouse (WP WA)

Thats why why I chimed Iím on your previous threads , I know excaxrly the waters (inland Columbia and lower river/ocean) you were talking about)

I have fished the Columbia around St Helens with my father in law (they live in Skappoose) some and Buoy 10 once (caught a 42# Chinook!) but have yet to figure it out on my own. We mostly fish the lakes for Kokanee/trout and crab Tillamook and Yaquina bays.

Iím hoping to do some bottom fishing and maybe even go after tuna with my neighbor now that Iíve got a decent boat for it.

Some very pretty country around there. I liked the coast guard museum. Cape disappointment would scare me.

Some great local seafood also.

Been in western Oregon all my life, easy sometimes to take for granted all that we are blessed with here in the PNW. I've traveled all over this country for work and while some places are great to visit, I'm always glad to get back home.

You know it! If you have never tried fresh Dungeness, it is the best crab on Earth.

We do have some nice wilderness and waterways, thatís for sure. Right now we are in week four of slushy snow, following about three months of cold rain - all this greenery comes at a cost...

When it comes to seafood, we may not have the variety found in other places, but what we do have is good stuff.

Absolutely. Sometimes it takes leaving to make you appreciate it, but there is no place I would rather be.

Where are you at, if you donít mind saying? We live south of Silverton, east of Salem.

Once upon a time but I've escaped. Occasionally I take a winter trip back to remind me why I left. I do miss the food and outdoor activities though.

Been here in Salem since 1985. Love the area, hate the politics.

As soon as I retire, I’m headed to a warmer, more tax friendly state.

My wife dreams about escaping the cold. I used to say that I would never leave, but the older I get the less I like winter.

I was born here, so I guess Iím used to it, I try to not let politics bother me too much.

I might retire somewhere warmer one day, but ideally I would do June through November in Oregon. Iíve got plenty of time to figure that one out...

Sorry, THT is primarily a dating website
Nice pics and family!
I did the San Fran to LA leg of PCH1 but my next trip will be the rugged coast.
Man does that look nice.

Born in Portland, Grew up in Springfield/Eugene. South Eugene Axeman here (GIve'em the AXE) 2 1/3rd years at Corvallis (Go Beav's) and 1 2/3rd back at Eugene chasing a girl. (Go Ducks) They gave me a degree largely because I kept beating up on the little kids and they gave me social promotions. Same thing in Medical School

Had a second home at Black Butte Ranch in the 1990's. I love central Oregon.
Wife and I were in Brookings last summer. (Caught a 28lb ling) and Depoe Bay a month ago. (Yep! Fresh crab)

Spent the 70's in Portland and had a class mate that ran charters out of Ilwaco. Fished Bouy 10 when the fishing was great. Dad usually took us to Winchester Bay to fish on the pukers! Was in Portland when St. Helens erupted. Ash fall was awful!

I live in Idaho, but still consider myself an Oregonian. Politic's threatens to ruin Oregon, but east of the mountains and out of Portland/Eugene there are actually people with values and common sense.

Know this. My 68 years on this sphere has taught me a few things. Listen up.......

1. No lead is ever safe in the hands of the Ducks!!! As long as time remains on the clock, the Duck can find a way to blow it!!! (No matter the sport)
2. Anyone who claims to land every Kokanee on the hook is a liar. A damn liar!! They often shake off the hook when they see the net.
3. Anybody tells you they don't get seasick hasn't been across the bar at the Columbia and out on those 20' swells off Cape Disappointment. The boats are called Puker's for a reason.
4. Dungeness crab is ambrosia. Food of the Gods!

Go Beav's, Go Ducks!
