    Monitoring Yamaha Through Garmin and NMEA 2000 Cable

    Finally pulled the trigger on a new Yamaha F200. Should have it installed and running by May. Looking forward to having the fuel management capability. Will allow me to optimize range.

    Done buying any other rod other than Okuma.

    I would assume kind of a step sideways. the Makaira rods were more expensive because they had fancier reel seats and handle setups. The PCH rods are all designed to be a bit more practical. I would go with the PCH.

    LOUD SUCKING SOUND

    Wow. Wish someone could invent a filter to sort out the handful of clear issues that we should focus on addressing from all the name calling, smoke and noise. - Improve our education/school system for everyone. - Adjust our electoral process so that there is little room to question the outcome...

    Closest to what PCH rod? None of the info on the PCH says anything about fiberglass. They advertise the UFR Tip technology. To me it does not feel like fiberglass. But is tough as heck. OKUMA - Ultimate Flex Reinforcement - YouTube

    BLUE FIN FLAT FALL ROD AND REEL COMBO

    That 16/Centaur setup is a great combo. The 50 comes in when the fish are chewing and you can use a big hook and heavy line. Kite, big bait and big fish. Then that extra drag and line capacity pay off.

    BLUE FIN FLAT FALL ROD AND REEL COMBO

    Nothing wrong with a Mak 30. But some folks don't like it because it is a wide Mak 20. It provides a little more line capacity but no increase in drag output. The Mak 20 is a square reel and holds plenty of 100 lb. line with plenty of drag to go with it. If they want a bigger reel they usually...

    Softening the sting.

    Nice thing now a days is that you can usually see this shit coming from a long way off and avoid the worst of it. Or at least make an educated decision. My entire life I have heard stories about the Columbus Day Storm that hit the Pacific Northwest the year I was born, 1962. Max gusts to 170...
