Whoo hoo! Every year this comes up, and it's a blast!

Using chum for fertilizer and compost is not wasting the fish. You're USING the fish. Plus, fish makes a killer fertilizer. go to your home improvement store and you can buy fish compost at a huge premium price. Because it makes for awesome tomatoes and gorgeous roses in the summer after it's turned into nutritious dirt.

I also don't think tis wasteful to throw the carcasses back in the river to harvest the roe. Is it illegal technically? Yes. They recently did a study on the Cedar river, where they found that abundant returns of salmon had a more positive affect on the health of smolt of steelhead than the habitat restoration that they did. The more dead fish in the system, the more food their is, and the healthier the ecosystem.

That being said, when the tribe takes the eggs and throws the rest of the fish in piles, that is wasteful. Like the Skok last year, and I'm sure this year. If they were enterprising, they could market their own "skokomish" brand fertilizer. Selling for cat food probably wouldn't be cost effective with the limited harvest they have, but in Olympia they'd have a great market for organic GMO and chemical free fertilizer, at the coops or other local boutique gardening centers. I bet they could market it to nurseries and other farms as well. Or simply donate it for the good PR that they would get.

Loose eggs are awesome to cure up and tie spawn sacs with. The fish that have loose eggs are NOT edible. Whether commercially harvested or harvested for personal consumption, the appropriate thing to do with those chum is to use them for fertilizer, shark bait, crab bait, octopus bait, shrimp bait, dog and cat food... Cooked up and made into biscuits chum makes a delicious treat for Lady that she can't get enough of. Or, they can be donated to your asian or russian neighbor, because they have ways to cook it that they really like and appreciate.

It is NOT poaching fish when you make fertilizer. The topic should be a bunch of name calling and posturing, it should instead evolve into a productive discussion about what to do with

No trespassing sign at the Decker Launch. That sign will be coming down. Stupid idiot locals they don't know who they are fucking with. I got wind of some gay, can't fish group called Harbor Boys. Boys is right. I seen a picture of one of those faggots with long greasy hair. Probably sucks his dad is his older brother. We have money. We have style. We look good and are getting information about the Naselle too. Facebook fishing groups are a gold mine, gold mine. So fuck off Satsop Gray's Harbor douche bags because The Wealthy are coming and cuming all up in your sisters and moms. Deal with it. And by the way we hate nigs, gooks, spicks who act like they have SWAG. We have SWAG. DEAL WITH IT!

While patrolling the Tahuya River last week, Officer Summit focused his attention on the upper portion of the river where the water has been very low, creating optimal conditions for “snagging” – an illegal and unsporting harvest method that involves tearing into the flesh of a passing fish with a large hook on the end of a weighted line.

Heading into the area on foot, Officer Summit checked a trail camera installed in the area and saw that three subjects had headed up river earlier, but had not yet returned. Officer Summit positioned himself strategically and waited. About a half an hour later the three subjects returned from the portion of river that is closed to salmon fishing carrying fishing poles rigged with gear for salmon fishing. They claimed they were catching and releasing fish, but with clear water conditions and very nice salmon in the upper reaches, Officer Summit thought this scenario was highly unlikely. He instructed one subject to open his backpack for inspection. The subject became very nervous and attempted to conceal the contents multiple times, unzipping the same compartment repeatedly. Officer Summit persisted, and the subject finally opened the pack to reveal three one-gallon freezer bags full of fresh salmon roe. Officer Summit instructed the three subjects to return to the river and retrieve the salmon carcasses from which the eggs had been removed. The subjects were able to collect 16 of the 20 Coho salmon carcasses that they had discarded in the woods and log jams.

While the subjects claimed they were avid steelhead anglers and were only using the roe for bait, Officer Summit knew better. All three of the subjects are well-known by Fish and Wildlife Officers in the area, and have been cited multiple times for numerous fish and wildlife violations. In this instance, the subjects were cited for Criminal Trespassing 2nd Degree, Failing to submit catch for inspection, Possession of salmon eggs w/o carcass, 1st degree over limit salmon, harvesting salmon in a closed area, snagging salmon, and wasting salmon. Their fishing gear was also seized for forfeiture.

Great work, Officer Summit!

Hey Colin, I'd love to hear your side of the story. Explain how you guys bonked 15 fish in closed waters, gutted them for the eggs and hid the bodies, all legally.
>> No. 33914
This story is super creepy and greasy! I love it!
>> No. 33924
Still waiting Colin, let's hear how that was legal. I like a good story. I'm sure the warden was just picking on you upstanding citizens that just happen to have several prior violations to your names.

Do we have a last name for Colin?

I believe he is Colin Yahatcock

I will deploy this soldier so we can defile your local run next.

It was a nervous dance for drivers on the Skokomish Valley Road Wednesday night — as much of it seemed to melt into the Skokomish River.

Some treaded gingerly along the flooded road, while others plowed right through...

I was out on the sky with a guide that show me a few tips. Then we catch this monster and we had a tasty dinner last night!

Now I am booking another trip with him for winter steelhead so I will have more to share!
>> No. 33893
Let me guess who that guide is. Did he ever say, "it is NOT poaching fish when you make fertilizer."
>> No. 33902
Not sure what you mean. He did say my monster was as close to chrome as you find this time of year. It was flavor of fish with texture of soft wonton. I can't wait for more, any tips to suggest so I can try on my own?

Not a lot of pictures due to my phone running out of batteries. I know excuses excuses but we did get some edible fish but we were out looking to feed our cats, my buddy has a monitor lizard and I feed a lot of my catches to him also. But we had double digit hook ups and lots of doubles on with both the hen and the buck getting plucked off the redd at the same time! Man was it fun! A lot of bronzed fish, but hens for more eggs was awesome. Bonus coho and steelhead were flossed at Stevens Creek, had to work for 'em, but it paid off big time cause I pulled out a snag that had 12 cannonball weights, 13 swivels and 22 hooks so I definitely have enough gear for my next trip. Call me Nate Treat today!!!

We at hog notice the asshole on this fish is distended yet it still appears to be carrying it's eggs. This confuses hog s little. We can only assume this is due to s finger banging post mortem on a pavati. Nate is an intriguing individual. Part retard, part tweaker.

I love vanilla pudding. I am curious how do you get your finger in there, I tried last night on a fish at the Asian Supermarket but the manager caught me before I could figure out how to make it work. I might just book a trip with Nate to learn that secret.

I would bet my father's pearl handle Hardy that this particular fish was kept with eggs in mind. I'm sure the monitor loved it. I once had a semi tame monitor in Australia. I used to feed him rotting chicken some of the other fishermen were using to catch some sort of catfish. They are a most personable unique being.

That will make a sweet tomato crop next year. It is NOT poaching fish when you make fertilizer.

Ah AJ. I am glad to see you got out with your lady and did some fishing in my absence. I have been in Columbia fishing Dorado, their golden color made me long for the Kings of the Hump with their copper flanks and pale meat. I will first say that this photo has some Nate Treat fishing trip all over it. Why? Well I'll tell you. First this is not a limit because Nate was unsuccessful on getting a limit as he ran out of last year's chum eggs. Not to worry though cause his roses grew strong on all the wasted chum he fertilized them with. You see to grow one's garden with wild salmon is not wasting, It's Tenino boy know how. Anyway, I digress back to the issue at hand. Secondly, the lady's grasp on the silver is both erotic and peculiar all the same. At first I didn't take it all in but despite the grainy computer image I think our damsel has a girl next door smile and a pair of sweater puppies that would get this old hound's rod flexed. I can see she is no stranger to handling a two hander and that to me is alluring I must say. Yes, I would say she is quite pleasing and wearing the only waders a lady should wear. However, I must say I'm disappointed I'm not seeing summer steel and a halter top with the same waders, steamy stuff to be sure. How AJ managed some skirt like that is beyond me. Certainly not his fishing skills but more likely the action of his rod. Well I just can't say anything without sounding like a randy old bastard so I must sign off. You see I've been deep in the Columbian bush for a spell and now that I'm home I would like to curl up with my lady chromer, a warm fire, some scotch, and bit of the Compleat Angler. Thanks for the photo, and good luck to you kids.
