    CR 8/30 WFO tuna fishing.

    We were out the day before out of 38 miles out of Westport. We went south but I guess not far enough. Struggled to find warm water and fish. Seas were sporty.

    The fish hold tank is not insulated at all.

    Ice failure

    Thanks for the responses. What confuses me is my last two times out we caught 26 tuna, brought 2 extra coolers of ice and barely touched them. Then on this time we only brought one extra cooler and had this problem. It was a overcast cool day, water was cooler than we wanted so maybe it is the...

    Ice failure

    Agree. Seems to be a bad design. Going to try and make some sort of seal. I have had it fill from downpours while being moored.

    Ice failure

    Yes they do work. I guess I will have to do that next time. Do you ice up the night before or day of?

    Ice failure

    Made a tuna run yesterday with poor results, rough seas, changing weather, earthquake, ok enough excuses. Anyway our ice in the fish hold didn't last long at all. By 10 am it was all slush. My fish hold lid let too much deck water in and melted the ice too fast. How do you guys water proof...

    Down rigger locks

    What locks do you use for your downriggers or for saltwater environments? My last set of brass Arbus locks lasted about 2 seasons. My next set of titanium lasted 4 weeks. Have to cut them off to get ready for a tuna run. Is there anything that lasts longer?

    Croonquist Commission application request for support

    I might be wrong, but he fought very hard for a much longer season to get the 2 halibut. Almost like a deer tag. He is very much apposed to the one or two weekend free for all. Cant do much worse than the current status Quo.

    Croonquist Commission application request for support

    Not sure if Dave is on BD but thought I would post this here. From what I understand very few people on this board actually fish or hunt. Dave has worked thousands of hours to help us get the halibut season we have and I think he would be great at this position. See his letter below. Good...
