    So after way too long between updates, here we go. After getting her in the water four times last year, she finally broke down. Luckily only 250ft from the dock. It ended up being the alternator which I easily identified. Regardless, it was late October and I decided to stop spending money...

    0 for 50 on the San Diego

    It is for this exact reason that I just broke down and bought my own boat. I was fishing on the San Diego about 2 years ago and the Yellowfin bite was going off. I had 4 fish on board by 11am, all on bait, and decided to switch to an Iron. After fighting the crowd on the Bow a few casts...

    Wolf Pack Confirmed In California

    a couple females, a male, and 5 pups. And you think we need a management plan?!?! The last time we managed them they disappeared. its time we let them manage themselves. In the meantime, lets watch the ecosystem of California return to what it used to be, just like Yellowstone has seen happen:

    She sounds and runs great! I have taken her out twice now, and am happy to say she chased down her first yellowfin just last week! Unfortunately I have a bad control cable which stopped working once we reached La Jolla on the way home. a quick stop for some rockies, and it stopped shifting...

    Instead, she ran like she was just built yesterday. As some of you may know from months back, I have been working on a 1978 21' Fiberform walk around/cuddy cabin. I Had to outsource some of the major engine and outdrive work, but was able to finish the rest myself. She ended up being a...
