    That looks like a proper feast. Nice catch.

    You sure know how to treat your ladies right! I'm still waiting for good weather to get out for my first trip but with 20' seas recorded on the buoy Friday near where I fish, it's been keeping me home. It's supposed to calm down by Thursday so may get out then.

    And Happy Mother's Day to all our great moms and wives!

    ok Joel, you need to give me the coordinates of your halibut hole haha. Im going to sekiu this saturday and getting a 1 day canadian license. My buddy who is a commercial crabber is going to take me out on his boat. He said he was going 6 miles out and anchoring up on the canada side. But for some reason, i thought it was illegal for us to anchor up in canada.

    If you anchor up you need to check in with customs. Anchoring is considered landing so if you drift while fishing you're ok. I was going to ask Joel if he's drifting or goes through customs so, Joel?

    We do both.
    We used to call Canadian customs to get our #, but two years ago the Canadians stopped issuing this for daily fishing forays, even when we stated we would be anchoring up for halibut. So we no longer call in.
    Basically it appears they have recognized the frequency, cost and overhead of documenting recreational fishing, at this present time, does not merit strict interpretation of maritime law in this situation.
    Having said this, my main fishing buddy and I both have the Nexus card and my boat is registered with the new CBP ROAM app.
