    Keeping bait alive in small bait tank

    You’ll wish you had more live bait at some time. Nursing an inferior tank is a losing battle. You lost 50% of $50. But it’s not just the money, it’s having precious bait when you need it, not a pile of deads in the back. It’s one of those things where you kick yourself after it’s done, mad you...

    I tried to mod mine in my whaler. I made a drop-down hose with holes in it like a flute to try and circulate the water. It helped for about 20 small baits, but no way for a scoop.

    Transom mount bait pumps tip

    For $20 I just change it out, running or not. Keep a couple spares under the console. I’ve had no better luck with rule than other cheap brands. My 1100 Sahara burned out after one season, and it was just a bilge, so seldom used. I also back a garden hose through the line to the pump and push...

    Fish weather..

    Looks like a small weather window. If there’s swell coming down, I go to the bottom on Ana and work up the back. On the way home from the gap is easier downhill.

    Newport Beach launch ramp

    Davies area is a shithole. Newport 100%. The homes and boats you can’t afford are worth the extra time out.
