    I am born & raised here in Seattle but I haven't fished salt water for many years. I could use some advice for a trip I have planned for next week. I'll be kayaking with a group of friends Monday through Friday along Orcas & Jones islands, among others, staying overnight at camp grounds. I have no idea what is legal/illegal/open/closed, etc. Of course I'll be studying the regs, but I'm sure it will still be confusing.
    I mainly fly fish, but the group I kayak with are generally bait fishermen in folding chairs on the beach with a glass of wine. One person will be bringing a crabbing pot. I would really appreciate it if someone could offer advice for both types of fishing. I'll be calling WDFW in Mill Creek, also.

    Thank you,
