For years I have driven by the Everett waterfront, north of the Navy base, where there are hundreds of old pilings standing in what is usually shallow water or maybe mudflats. I believe these were used back in the day to secure log booms for the timber mills or something like that. There is a pocket-sized waterfront "park" along Marine View Drive where one might enjoy the view or contemplate life or.....wade? I wonder what might be catchable there...crabs? Flounder / sand-dabs? Herpes? The mud flats seem like barren land to me, but maybe there are aquatic worms or some other life forms that attract bigger stuff. I've often wondered if a dipshit with a dipnet could wade those shallows and come up with anything other than an alibi for a wasted afternoon. Has anyone tried this? You know what? I'm off work today! I'll just go out there and find out!
