    Puget Sound Fishing / Crabbing-gctid745069

    I just moved to Vashon Island and am looking for tips on places in that area for salmon fishing and crabbing. Most interested in Marine Areas: 11, 13, 12, 10 and 9. Any hot spots you can share would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Yukon Harbor west of the Southworth ferry and Quartermaster harbor at the south end of Vashon for crab. Check www.salmonuniversity.com for all the hot spots in your area for salmon. Also the race track due west of Demoines marina for salmon.

      Thank you. What and where is the race track - not familiar with that. We launch in Quartermaster Harbor and my house actually faces SE towards Tacoma, Dash Point and Federal Way - Des Moines is a bit NE of us.

        Directly across from Des Moines is a bay on the east side of Vashon. That is the racetrack because everyone does a clockwise racetrack in that bay for salmon. Also the west side of the Narrows bridge on the shore (30 feet of water) before sunrise...

                  Salmon University info is very solid and detailed for South Vashon.

                  A couple other online resources include:

                  - Google map somebody posted with comments (click on a colored box) https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...NAvDkF_A&hl=en

                  - Salt Patrol (Capt. John Keizer) is based in the south sound, so worth a look (but he used to be with Salmon U. so the info overlaps) http://saltpatrol.com/resources/fishing-maps/

                  It's a long way to North Vashon, but Dolphin Pt (northeast tip of Vashon) and Southworth (from the ferry dock and south) can both be good. The tip of Vashon is the north line of Area 11, which often is open when Area 10 (to the north) is closed.

                  Gamefishin.com (http://www.gamefishin.com/forums/let...ommunity-on.2/) and PiscatorialPursuits forums periodically have reports posted and you can search old posts for terms like "Girl Scout Camp" that are important to know. The F24/fishn2gthr4ever crew fishes around Tacoma and post and has some videos that can be entertaining https://www.youtube.com/user/fishn2gthr4ever
