2012 Chum thread

Bag, there are plenty of places to go find chum still as PSP noted. The spot you have likely been fishing is an earlier run than many others in the area. It may still provide some decent fishing, but I'm kind of "over" the combat scene this year after primarily fishing combat fisheries since the MA-9 opener in July. I now look forward to walking some lonely beaches searching for SRC and resident silvers.

Sounds like an enjoyable quest. I think I will do the same. Maybe our paths will cross.

I would hope that in the future you realize the damage you do to small runs like the one you seem to like to tell everyone about above in your postings. I would suggest that you start to view things like a sportsman and a fisherman and not as someone who likes to invite the whole world to a tiny stream with small runs of chum that won't continue to exist if you continue to tell the entire world where and when they are. Im glad you enjoy these runs. We other sportsmen in Gig Harbor would like to as well. I hope you remember this.

Another candidate for the rabid "everything has to be a secret" IGNORE feature!

Thank You. I'm glad it was not just me that feels this way. I did not want to say anything because I'm so new to this forum, but I see this is Mr Bob's first post. I know what that tells me. How about you?
Up till today I hadn't used ignore at all. All of a sudden I've seen both I and others subjected to uncomfortable levels of negativity for even mentioning a widely known fishing location. It isn't all by new posters, either. 2 of the 3 I added to my list today had several hundred posts. I suspect that the tone of their prior posts might have been along the same lines, but I wasn't curious enough to go look. Didn't need the aggravation!

How about all you "Fly Fishing Purists" stop acting like middle school girls. I tend to hate this forum when you start bitching about your precious fishing spot, don't post if you have nothing constructive to say. Don't get me wrong I love and care about our fisheries, but I tend to hate you "Fly Fishing Purists". If you have a problem with the fisheries and fellow fly fishermen, maybe you should just leave the state.
 
Any more chum been getting found lately? Seems like it's been quiet the last few days--which is perhaps why everyone is getting aggravated.
I might be getting out on some hood canal estuaries tomorrow morning to look around. No clear idea of where I'm going to go. I just need to get a line wet. Might even hit the river, we'll see.

Cheers!
