Lookin to buy a salmon net this weekend lookin to spend 20-30$ on it. Dosent have to be good or anything, just get the job done. I need along one though for those long drops off the harbor wall. I learned the hard way last year u need a net to bring salmon on shore.

Anyway i plan on goin to burnham this weekend and i got a few questions

With this warm weather will the ice be melted

Those gates that prevent u from getting on the boat docks are those gates locked. I don't know why they would be locked. If anyone knows that would be great. :D

THANKS
Dom

Was down that way today myself just futzin around no fishing stuff with me. Yes the gates are locked, I believe you can get a pier permit from Henry's(they have great priced frabill nets too) and they give you the access code or something but............... you don't need to do all that you can fish anywhere from shore and it's just as good. Inside the harbor the west side is the deepest. If your adventurous just follow the path to the mouth of the harbor on either side and fish. I see salmon guys there all the time :)
