    Getting serious this year....

    Get the arch. You can always use an umbrella on those hot Baja afternoons.

    Ranger Bay Boats

    Chiming in late here, but if you're just looking for a boat to fish SWBA in, you definitely don't need to spend 60K. A 14' aluminum will work. As for the aforementioned prefishing; don't bother! Prefishing doesn't seem to do much good anyways. I've ridden on a lot of these 'bay boats' and...

    help fishing mission bay

    I don't fish Mission Bay all that much, but have gotten a couple bites there while NOT fishing the eel grass. All that other stuff about baits seems to make sense though Matt. Just get out there and have fun Patrick, you'll find them.

    Hahahaha, so awesome. Looks like everyone's going to be on the beard, wedding, fish solo pattern now.

    Life Vests - Auto vs. Hydrostatic

    I wear this stupid foam filled one made by Patagonia. I don't think they make them anymore, but there are tons of similar ones out there. I was lucky enough to be wearing it when we flipped our boat on the beach in some large surf. I was wearing foul weather gear and deck boots and it...

    SWBA question

    Yea, Andy's right. The captain's meeting is not necessary. Just show up early. You might have to pay an extra $20 for 'late registration.' Should be a fun event.

    April Bass Content - Spotted Bay Bass - Enter HERE to win some great gear!

    Got one close to 3 in the Mission Bay SWBA, but I wasn't sure which fin was the pec fin, so I never got a photo.

    Question: Salt Water Bass Reel

    Dumalski, I fish 300 DSV's with 'live bait handles'. Got seven or eight of them in my quiver and am happy. I guess 'if it ain't broke' don't fix it' mentality. All these tech reels out on the market and I fish reels that are all at least five or six years old. I'm not sure what all the fuss...

    Help with peacock bass in Panama

    Sorry for the late follow up here. Mel was amazing. He set us up with a guide on Lake Gatun. There was a ton of murky water due to the dredging, as stated above, but we got into some decent fishing on the peacock bass. Ended the day with 25 or so fish. Nothing huge and not really any...

    Agreed. They run such an amazing business. Really go above and beyond to make sure they take care of you.

    Help with peacock bass in Panama

    Thanks for the advice guys. Emailed Mel Sanchez and he's setting me up. Hooked me up with a ride to and form our hotel, a boat, a guide, lunch, the whole deal. I'll let you know how it goes when I get back.
