Re: south sound washington

Fellas, I`d be cautious about eating any fish from the south sound. The dioxin and mercury is way worse than they thought. Even in Port Angeles where I live, they banned fishing inside the harbor due to the pcb and dioxin being 100 times too high in crabs and bottomfish.

Fish WEST of Freshwater bay to be safe....

Re: south sound washington

Does anyone know how to test fish for the levels of toxin?

Re: south sound washington

Hi, Basic rule is the further from the ocean the fewer the fish, and in the south sound they would probably glow in the dark. I live in Issaquah and find it is well worth the trip to head west. I just got back today from Neah Bay and it wasn't if you caught fish but how many. A good place to get fishing areas is also fish-n-maps and try to talk to locals they might not give all of there hot spots away but will usually give some pointers. By the way we fished 1 day for Lings and Rockfish and 1 day for Butts, Caught 6 Lings (Smallest was 33") 18 Rocks and 2 Butts (70# & 90#) Squid and rubber squid jigs and herring all kicked ass with plenty of weight.

Good Luck Fishing

Point no point and east to to useless bay on Wigby is as far south as they go.
