This is the home of the Mighty Rangerrob.
My mission is to share my Northwest outdoor adventures, products, services and knowledge with
you, in a fun and informative way. To always treat our visitors, and customers with trust and respect.
Well, we are looking forward to a great year
of fishing and crabbing in the Olympic Peninsula region.
May is here and now its time to get the Halibut gear out. We will be
working the Sequim area.
After that, July calls out our name for some crabbing.
Then it will be time to hit the
salmon runs as the State allows. We plan on working
Sequim, Sekiu and Neah Bay.
I look forward to meeting you up
there. Look for our Red Custom Weld Boat. We are
the ones with the big smile.
Just got back from a great Canada Fishing Trip at Lake Taweel, Canada.
In British Columbia. We have a great video to

3/25/2007 Fishing For Bull Trout!!
Lake Billy Chinook, Oregon
What a wonderful day of fishing we had at
Lake Billy Chinook, fishing for Monster
Sized Bull Trout.
We got out in the afternoon and
started with whole herring, fishing deep.
Lots of marks on the depth finder, but no
So we thought we would bring out
our Rangerrob Secret Weapon, The Ultimate
Lure, by Charlie White.
Not 8 minutes went by, and the the
Senior Rangerrob got on a nice little 7
pound Bull Trout. Not very long after
that, Ranger-Rob, the next generation nailed
a 4 pounder.
All were released back to be
again, but what a fun afternoon we had.
We look forward to trying again in a few
Fishing and Crabbing Report -
Hello Fellow Rangers!!
We have been working the Straits for a few weeks and finding
the fishing to be as hard as Sequi and Neah Bay. We were
very luck to pick up one Small Chinook using a Black and White
squid and about 49 feet of Water.
Sequim Crabbing was pretty sweet. Coming home with 9
very large males. Later in the week it was a little slower
with a lot of females loading up the pots. Sequim Bay is a
great place to drop pots if the water gets to ruff in the
The thrill of any fishing adventure begins
with finding the right place to wet your line. Fishfinder
allow anglers to quickly identify key targets and structure,
as well as fish. A Fish Finder is a subset of a group of
instruments called sonars. A Sonar consists of a
transmitter, transducer, receiver and display. In the
simplest terms, an electrical impulse from a transmitter is
converted into a sound wave by the transducer and sent into
the water. When this wave strikes an object, it rebounds.
This echo strikes the transducer, which converts it back
into an electric signal, which is amplified by the receiver
and sent to the display. Since the speed of sound in water
is constant (approximately 4800 feet per second), the time
lapse between the transmitted signal and the received echo
can be measured and the distance to the object determined.
This process repeats itself many times per second. DISPLAY:
The display shows a history of the received echoes. The user
can make a number of adjustments to tailor the display to
his or her preference, such as senitivity, the depth range
and chart speed. Displays use a variety of technologies,
provide different resolutions and number of shades of gray
or color. Each display is made up of a number of pixels,
which are little square blocks that make up the images. The
more pixels and shades of gray or color the better
resolution and image clarity. Fish Targets: Echoes from fish
within the beam will be shown on the display by illuminated
pixels. What image appears on the display depends on a
number of factors: the sensitivity setting on the fishfinder,
the cone angle of the transducer, the speed of the boat, and
the size, depth, speed and direction of the fish. A fish
that is swimming directly beneath the boat, it will create a
consistent echo that will cause a continuous line to appear
on the display. A stationary fish caught in a narrow beam
transducer appears as a single point on the screen as the
boat passes above it, whereas under the same conditions the
fish appears as an arch if a wide beam transducer is used.

Well we headed down to Steelhead falls on the Deschutes River for a little
Fly fishing. We got there a little late in the morning. Fishing was
slow but we caught a few with Pink Ladies and green Scuds. For a great get
away and beautiful scenery, Steelhead Falls, on the Deschutes River in Oregon is
The Ranger was in Central Oregon last week and stopped to talk to some
fisherman on the Billy Chinook Reservoir. They were doing pretty good catching
Kokanie. Everything else was slow. The water is still pretty cold. Bass
fishing should pick up soon.
Well the Ranger and his friends just got back from a beautiful fishing trip
from the Olympic Peninsula, to fish the Bogachiel River. Although we did not catch
any, the fishing was wonderful. The river was clearing up and the skies were blue.
It was heaven. I wish I could have tried a few other rivers, like the
Calawha, but we got held up by a little trailer problem for two days
RV page). There were a few folks up there, but we had the river to ourselves
pretty much. I think most people though the weather was going to be bad, so did we.
But it was wonderful. Just for that, it was a successful trip. We
stayed at Bogachiel State park, the review is on our

Here is a picture of a
bass I caught last year. Local family pond. have caught
him three times since 9.11lbs. Brian Willbond Southern California.
