I think usually the dogs hear the whales first, That blow sound really carries and at that low frequency there is no other sound out here that sounds like that. I think if they are upwind the dogs may smell them first. There's no smell quite like that here either. But they often cruise the beach less that 100 yards out and they swim at a fast walking pace so you can walk along with them. Then they sometimes stop in our cove and just swirl around and play often for half an hour. Sometimes they stick their head straight up out of the water about 6'. It's very amazing. They will be around for about another month then it's off to Alaska. They have been here now for about three weeks. I'll see if I can post a pic.

Here's a shot. It's not very good but you can see the whale and you can see the dogs. The whale is the black hump in the water.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I think I can hear the MOODY BLUES playing in the background at Osprey's house.

Or is that PEARLS BEFORE SWINE?

Beautiful, Bob...

Been in the PNW for 9 years now, and have sighted Orcas about 10 times and Gray whales twice off Hat Island.

We are lucky.

Denda:
We occasionally get Orca in our bay but not often. Wish we did. My wife tells a story about her sister being out in the canoe and being surrounded by them while the family watched from the beach.

Yep we are lucky. Not sure about the pack of coyotes that ran through the area last night around 8pm though. I was glad my cat was in.

This shot show two greys blowing a bit far off the beach for my casting. 6 lb. test is probably not going to do the job anyway.

Nope. I'm more of a catch and release kind of guy.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Japanese just re affirmed they will continue to hunt whales for food. Don't understand this. Very civilized country doing something so uncivilized.
Amazing picture Bob. Time to take out the Spey rod. We have pilot whales that live ~2m from the house. Know it's spring when they show up and the seals leave. Last year the seals didn't leave so the great whites showed up.
Seals ruin the striper fishing so don't like when they stay.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Japan is a very POLITE society - they do many uncivilized things.

They still deny their responsibility for WW II atrocities for example.
