Default Thanks to Wiley and Introductions

A big thanks to Wiley for the Forum and Stevebaz for the legwork. I have a 20' Hewescraft Searunner that I use for fishing the Puget Sound and Pacific Ocean from the Oregon Coast up through Vancouver Island. THT was a great source of info for me when it came time for a power choice. I went with a Johnson 140 and Yamaha 9.9 kicker. Awesome choices and thanks to THT members who weighed in with info in 2003 when I posted.

I am excited for this forum as I have always felt awkward posting to a mainly east Coast group that had so many posts out of my area of expertise.

Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from others.

Tuck

Holy cow gt, I'm on Bainbridge too! Now that is a small world. Where you from?

I fish Puget Sound as well but we all know it's kind of a weak fishery. I like to hit Westport & Neah Bay, try to get up to Ucluelet once in awhile and also Alaska. Fished a lot in SoCal until I moved back home to the PacNW.

Also do quite a bit of volunteer work with the boat. Just towed a bunch of stray treated logs that have wandered into our harbor and putting derelict vessels on the beach when they start sinking is a specialty.

and thanks Wiley!

ps: anybody going to the Seattle Boat Show this week?

and Bull, how about putting on a baja get together sometime?

I would like to thank Wiley for creating the THT West Coast Group. I have been lurking in the background enjoying the posts from other areas. Boating on the West Coast is a little different than the East Coast and the Gulf. It will be nice to interact with other members on the West Coast.

Chaps,
Just moved onto Bainbridge Is. a week ago today from Annapolis, Md. Will miss home but so far have enjoyed B.I. despite the seemingly continuous rain of present. Hope to stay on the island but only if the Admiral is good with the ferry.

Thanks Wiley,

I fish the central and south sound. Try to get out to Neah and La Push when I get a chance. I have a 1995 19' Tiderunner. Look forward to meeting the locals around here.

Thanks also Wiley, I have been around here for quite a while, even traveled to FT. Meyer. Florida to pick up my present boat. And I also bought my 225 Merc from one of the guys on the board, Offshore3144, and its running great. This is a great board with many helpful guys onboard, when I needed information about Ft. Meyers, DryRot chimed in and showed me around, he even towed the boat from where I bought it, to a local marina.

I live in Gig Harbor, Washington State, and my biggest achievment was catching a 60 plus pound King Salmon on my boat out of Westport Wa in 2003. I am a member of our local Gig Harbor Chapter of Puget Sound Anglers. I love to fish for Halibut, Salmon and Steelhead, but if it swims it isn't safe!
Oh, I guess I forgot Tuna, went out several times last summer to 57 miles.......now that get expensive, but oh the fun.

I am also part of the faculty of SalmonUniversity.com, I am the resident chef of that site and post recipes to it monthly, take a look sometime. And being the father of six is no easy chore at that either, but very enjoyable as time goes on.

Once again, thanks Wiley and thats my introduction to the West Coast forum of THT.

Wiley, thanks for setting this up for us Westcoasters. Much appreciated.
I fish the Columbia River and offshore Oregon waters. Offseason from the ocean I fish coastal rivers for steelhead and chinook.

This should be great. A few years back I got invloved with a loose group of Puget Sound anglers who e mailed reports to the group after a day on the water and it was a big help in deciding where to fish. That group eventually kind of disintegrated and so, hopefully, we can pick up something like that here.

I live in Normandy Park, Wa and fish the sound from Possesion/No Point to Pt Defiance and make a couple trips to Neah Bay and the San Juans every year. My boat is a blue/white 19' SeaSport with a 135 Mariner/8 Honda kicker. Looking to repower however so that will change.

I generally mooch but did give in a few years back and bought downriggers so you will sometimes see me trolling.

Tight Lines.

I live in Scappoose, Oregon, and am glad to see a West Coast flavor on the site. I recognize some names that have given me advice on other boards (tomic), and it is always nice to see common names.

I was online this night cause I'm looking at small radar units. Good info in the electronics section.

Fishing the Columbia out of a 22' Seahawk.

I lived at Rincon Point for years, graduated from Ventura High, and my Mom has a place on the channel in Mandalay Bay, brother in Oakview, so I get up their from time to time. Last time we went we caught some nice "butts" of the base around Mugu Pt., drifting with an electic trolling motor. Wrked prettly slick.

Bullshipper, aka Jeff Genge here, 54.

Lived in California as a boy where I worked as a deck hand and captain in the summers out of San Diego and Port Hueneme landings on half day up to long range rips to Mexico.

After college, moved to Oregon and started my own Salmon Hatchery in Corvallis Oregon, then sold that and moved to Mexico to be a silver miner, where I operated over 15 different mines in Hermosillo, Sonora, fishing out of San Carlos/Kino Bay for 18 years.

Now located in central Mexico after stints in Chile, and hoping to set up a boat and place in Puerto Vallarta to fish 50 miles offshore there 5 days a months, but my new business venture has sucked my capital kinda thin, so I am on hold for a year. I am boat poor with a 28' cruiser, 20' Cape Horn CC, and a 18' Seaswirl CC.

So I have been up and down the west coast a few times, and will appreciate sharing some good times and maybe a trip or two with you guys.

Wiley,

Thank you for setting this up!

I live in Southern California and keep my boat in Dana Pt. harbor. I primarily fish for sharks, with both conventional and fly fishing gear.

Learn a lot of good information from other THT members and look forward to posting on the West Coast forum.
