    I guess this could be fishing related as I'd rather fund someone's fishing addiction than their golf addiction... My previous contractor pulled-the-plug and I still have projects I'd like to complete. My priority projects are a front door replacement including enlarging/moving the rough opening...

    Following up on the thread about flats wading boots, I'm curious what PS beach anglers prefer, felt, lug sole, or other footwear for wading and fishing the PS and HC beaches. Does it vary by season, with the increased algal growth in the summer?

    Anybody know how long it takes to clear up the water in the Everett area after all the mud coming down the rivers? I'm looking to hit the east side Whidbey beaches.

    I would like to organize a beach cleanup this winter. Currently I are looking at January/February time frame. I don't have any specific dates in mind, but soon I would like to have two or three dates to offer up then go from there. The idea is to have a good time cleaning up a beach and potluck...

    Hey all, I've got a business trip to PDX coming up in two weeks with a couple of days to fish prior (Nov 5 -6). I had originally thought about driving over to Maupin, but it seems like I can be at the southern end of the Puget Sound in similar time, and I'd really like to fish for SRC's. Any...
