While this isn’t a blog about cooking, since I enjoy cooking and eating, its likely that I will take that format into 2010 with my fishing trips to also document how I like to prepare fish, crab, clams and perhaps some duck if I am lucky. I would like to give a whirl at duck hunting if the opportunity arises and Im able to get down to Oregon to shoot on a private ranch.
I did get a chance to try my luck at some squid jiggin’ but it proved to be nothing but a fruitless effort. I’ve been squid jiggin’ a few times now and its been as good as my steelheadin’. Perhaps I should stick with salmon and crab, seems like a more consistant and better haul for me. We did briefly consider going on the razor dig at Ocean Shores, I’ve never dug up razors and considering the time and the night dig and the fact that the weather was just blistery, we opted to not go. Even with the crabbing, Im considering not making those outings unless I am already fishing for salmon. Its just alot of work to set up, bait and pull traps for the hopes of a few crab. I know a great local market that sells dungees for $2.79 a pound. I’ll burn through that much gas for the guaranteed purchase of a few big male Dungees.
My next outing will likely be for steelhead… but you’ll have to wait for that report. It will be an interesting one as I’ve entered into the darkside as some flyfisherman would put it and purchased a centerpin reel. YIKES!
