Remember to coat whatever bait you use with WD40..... Don't let the Fish & Game guy or any greenie/enviro wackos see you do it. Always seemed to help me.

If you use the sardines or you can try cans of tuna fish - leave the product in the can. Punch holes in the can. Run a wire thru the holes and tie it on down to your cab pot.

Really ripe raw chicken is best....

But you probably don't have time. Maybe you could cruise China town, naw, don't go there.

Chicken, bacon, silver salmon carcas. All work well. Where you going? If Wesrport, go to the Hungry Whale and pick up some crab bait (rockfish carcass).

Alright, how the fuck do you go crabbing without a boat? I'd like to know because I'm boatless.

Off a dock...... I've heard there is one in steilacoom that is pretty decent.

I was going to take my boat out and do a little salmon fishing also, but I Heard it is pretty shitty right now off of Johnson point. Think I will just go hunt donw some trout tomorrow instead.

If you are going to Friday Harbor there is a skank who frequents Herb's Tavern named Karrie, buy her a drink and it is a done deal you will end up with crabs...

...and herpes.

Salmon and chicken :)

I've always found, at the Flying J's, a few strategically placed Snickers will do the trick...

I've found turkey legs to work good.

Though lately, I just swim along the bottom and put them into my goodie bag. They are all over the place in Mukilteo.

Of everything I've tried, fresh turkey legs work best.
