    2 weeks on the boat. Out of kitimat bc. The wife caught her first chinook salmon ever and it was a hair over 30pds. Tyee. I'm still waiting to catch one that big. On the other hand the halibut were great. This is my biggest one. The weather and water were fantastic.

      Nice catch, need to get myself back up there, love BC

    Heading back out for another 2 week trip in August for the Coho run. Need to wax the bottom of the boat and make a few tweaks here and there. Ready for another run!

      Hello fellow Bayliner folks. We are finding our 2000 2859 to be a very nice boat. Got a question for this owners group. How the heck do you open up these round light fixtures to change out a burned out bulb? Tried the obvious w/o results.

            Hey 2859'ers. I thought Id bump this thread up with a little trip report. I just got back from a 5 day trip out on Prince William Sound with my 13 yo son. http://www.charts.noaa.gov/OnLineViewer/16700.shtml
            We finally got all of the leaks found and fixed on the new transom. It turns out the idiots thought using screws 1/2 inch too long to mount the trim tabs without sealing them would be ok. We covered alot of water this trip. We went out about 75 miles to try halibut fishing but the weather got snotty pretty quick and we had no luck. We decided to duck around the S. tip of Knight Island and realized we had run smack into Coho heaven. We trolled for a few hours and landed a small King 4 pinks and 4 Silvers. We lost a few Silvers as well. We hooked up doubles and landed them both amazingly. We did ok shrimping this trip but lost a pot hung up. All together we burned about 130 gal of fuel. I sure do love that new diesel. Theres no way a 454 would have allowed us to cover the distances we did.

              Transom Door Latch - anyone else irritated as heck with the stock latch - mine vibrates all the time, and about half the time it unlatches itself. Are there any magnetic or spring loaded latches available?
