    Ignoring Members

    Naw, just scroll faster. You kinda learn there's not much offered after about 4 political spins, then move on to the next thread. Besides, nobody's got anything fishy to talk about. I also mute commercials when I watch tv.

    La Salina trip planning? Thinking of towing the boat down and launching at the marina?

    He's gotta be retired, given how much that guy is gone! I bet he's using this pandemic to straighten out his tackle box and chart his next adventure. Livin' the life!!!

    Fishing BOLA 6/8 and 6/10

    I want to head down so badly, but willing to wait to see what the opening brings.

    I got some spar varnish to seal paracord wrapped dykes and duckbill pliers

    Everything in all pics look very nice! One question though: do they tend to slip more when varnish is applied?

    Fishing Future on Sportfishing Boats

    (What came to mind when I read this was how that one boat ran down and filed bankruptcy when it caught fire and a bunch of divers died.)

    What’s on this old Penn?

    That you inherited that reel with the lead core line probably speaks to it not having been fished in many, many years. The reel itself, if unfamiliar, is a good reel with some TLC. I've picked up some older fresh water set-ups with the same line, lead core. As Red says above, it's better left...

    Ken's Custom Reels is closed. WTF

    Call ahead. I started calling ahead to pretty much everyplace that I need to go to. Easier than driving down and finding a place locked up.

    Volaris 60% off right now?

    I would be that one person you mentioned. Not exactly ripped off, but highly doubtful on getting a refund or rebook. Wish I would have seen this before midnight Sunday night! Would have eased the pain, for sure. Edit: got word late yesterday that Volaris is giving us one year to use the tickets...

    I really mess up

    My trip to La Paz is off. Would have been my first time. Hoping things open up after summer. As much as I want to go, I feel its right that the Locals are barricading their towns. So far, haven't heard from Volaris whether they're gonna credit, refund or just keep our $$. Hotel long ago refunded...

    Fishing Jacket

    My $.02: see if it comes in a long cut. There are times when I didn't pack my long swerater, and that colder air eddies back across the deck and on my back.

    Gonzaga in April

    Supposed to be going to La Paz mid-April, but I'm starting to think it ain't happening this year, which is suckie! Hope I can at least get a rain check. I don't want to ask for a refund when their resources are limited and dependent on our dollars. If we all here are hurting, many loosing jobs...
