Pink Salmon in Puget Sound

Every once in a while (2 years to be exact) it is fun to feel a big fish pull on the end of your line. I am not a fan of killing or eating fish, but once every 730 days or so seems alright to me. So we hit Dash Point (always at low tide) and dragged a couple to the beach. Now they are at the smokers. Lox anyone?Screen shot 2013-08-30 at 10.23.09 PM Screen shot 2013-08-30 at 10.23.26 PM Screen shot 2013-08-30 at 10.23.41 PM

Amanda’s parents came to visit us for a week. We took them crabbing.

Crabbing in Seattle, Washington.

Don’t get too excited by this first picture. It was a female and it is illegal to keep the females. It was also the only crab that we have caught, yet. However, I just found out that you have to let your pots soak overnight to have real success. I feel good about our future trips. We mostly catch starfish and seaweed. But we also find awesome beaches with nobody around. It is just like Hawai’i.Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 10.19.40 AM Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 10.18.54 AM Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 10.19.06 AM Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 10.18.45 AM Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 10.19.24 AM Screen shot 2013-07-12 at 10.19.34 AM

Coho fishing.

The Coho Salmon are supposed to be showing up soon. Uncle Leland showed me his secret spot. The tides don’t wait until you have had 8 hours of beauty sleep.

Out at Point No Point, the boats were catching King Salmon. It looked like a lot of fun, if you are into that sort of thing.

The best stop of the day was for breakfast at The Point Casino.
