    1990 Mako 171-Trolling Motor?

    Exactly. It also makes anchoring and hopping off the bow onto the trailer easier. No real worries about safety. The trolling motor fills the gap.

    Homeless defacing Seal beach river jetty

    I'm no defender of Prop 47, but it has much less of an effect than out of state migration of homeless people to California. It's not hard for other states to dump their homeless on California because of our weather and welfare. Want a viable financially sound solution to the CA homeless boom...

    Boat-Friendly (and Safe) Hotels near Mission Bay?

    Camplands an option if you're cool with tent camping. They've got a ramp and fairly secure parking. I crash there because my gears secure and I don't have to pull everything off the boat like I would in a hotel parking lot.

    San Clemente Island Report Sunday 2/4/18

    Great job putting in the legwork. Conditions over spots any day, especially if it's like that.

    Rat Problem...22 or BB...???

    Pump air rifle is quieter. Three pumps on a .22 seems to work as well as a hotter .177 but I'm sure I'll spark the .45 vs 9mm debate with that. It's also easy to mount an led flashlight on an air rifle. As far as traps go, nail em to a 36" 1x3 so you can place and retrieve em easier and...

    sheena was a man!!

    Yeah the rest of the country and the rest of California has a running joke of PD/FD sending their frequent fliers on a greyhound to LA/OC/SD.

    sheena was a man!!

    25% of this country's homeless are in California as of the census. So we foot the bill and the states they came from get nice roads. Most of the kooks, freaks, degens, monsters, loadies, locos, and transbenders wind up here to 'discover themselves' without their family getting them to shape up...

    Spotted Bay Bass Fishery in SQ Bay?

    I agree with what you're saying about regular dredging projects. I was comparing the pre-development conditions of the wetland areas that were turned into harbors and ports. They were large expanses of 1-10' deep water at mean. Great waterfowl habitat and fish nurseries but limited in the...

    Spotted Bay Bass Fishery in SQ Bay?

    This is a really interesting question. I haven't targeted spotties in San Quintin but I have fished some other pocket populations in naturally formed estuaries. The lack of fishing pressure didn't necessarily mean good fishing. The fish did look and act different from the ones I've caught in...

    Boneless Sand Dab Tip

    Seems like the Sand Dab thing has come up a lot lately. Nothing wrong with that except some knowledge got forgotten with the good fishing we've had. Sand Dabs can be served boneless just as easy as they can be served bone in. Here's the explanation. Start with the traditional diagonal slice...

    I got so sexually excited by the sales tax rate that I'm going to need a fresh pair of Carhartt B11s.
