    That's what I was thinking Evan. I'm thinking they have someone down at the beach with a phone or something. Maybe even another up the road a bit. Could be done fast with a few people busting windows. Seems like a lot for just one person.

    I like the idea of a camera or a rigged car. Something nice a shiny with something irresistible sitting on the front seat with a cop around the corner. But that will never happen.

    I'll still be there. I'm not going to let a couple crack head ruin my party. At least that's my story right now.

    Damn!

    I've been there for the past couple of weeks and haven't noticed anything unusual.

    I'll definitely be more aware of who's walking around like they don't belong there.

    If you ever notice anything strange about a person it's always a good idea to ask them

    "how's the fishing" and if they act unusual you know they're up to something....

    My car was broken into last Sept at noon on a Sunday. I was out of the car 10mins max and returned to find a window smashed. The Snoho County sheriff knows this a problem but has too few patrol folks. What ya gonna do?

    Come to think of it, I wonder if it's a local nearby.
    I noticed a gentleman Sunday evening walking around acting kind of strange near the entrance. He then turned around and walked back up the hill. I really didn't think anything of it until now.

    Humpy Hollow is in between the Edmonds and Mukiteo Ferry and about 200 yards out. It is the best place to go and a total anti secret. If you bucktail at the right time you can nab the occasional silver as well :beer2:

    a .45 will, but I'm quite partial to my Bushy M-Forgery myself. If they ever have a special drawing for dirt-bag tags, I'm putting-in!

    So, if you're not going to leave any valuables in your rig & you leave it unlocked, maybe a window down to make it really obvious...
    Do you stick your registration and other personal info in your pocket, rather than leaving it in an unlocked vehicle, or am I just being paranoid?

    very scientific. maybe we should create a safety word instead. i spend most of my time looking lost and if you confront me after ive blown the fish whistle i will probably raise a few red flags. :confused:

    Sean, at least while you're fishing or around water you at least look legit. Even when I'm fully geared up and casting away I still look like a suspicious skeezeball.

    As I was pulling in there last night, a patrol car was pulling out. Seems like at least for the time being, they are aware of the problem. We'll see how long that lasts though.

    Fishing was very bullheadish. Saw more surface action then I've seen in a while there but no grabs.

    Saw a dude walking out of Wal-Mart strapped with a pistol. Had a bag full of groceries, 3 year old kid and a hand gun.

    Just don't pull a Plaxico Buress and shoot yourself in your own leg.
