Have rods, tackle & permit, will travel near Seattle.

I just acquired a couple of light-duty (i.e. inappropriate for river salmon) fishing rods, I've received a primer in selecting tackle and setting everything up, I know my knots, I've got my permits and a Discover Pass, and my cooler is ready for some fresh catch.

What to do (or not do) when away from the sight of land and on a boat smaller than a 747?
