Rad that you hooked that kid up. Huge smile from him.
Yes...bleed, gut, ice...eat raw.
That was kick ass...you captured it all.
Nice first YT too, solid.
Epic write up...
Best line..."handline a brown trout"
Yes, bluewater spearfishing is a different animal. Your trip sounds like my last 4 years...
My question as well.
Well played. I’m glad I’m not the only one who does dumb shit.
Wow dude...you killed it, congrats.
Thanks for the details above...makes me feel better, I made the right decision.
My brother just got back from a little south of SF, he said there is quite a bit of construction going on. Lots of dirt detours. Sorry I can't be...
Love this guy...you need a TV show.
One minute cussing them out the next minute helping guys get on the bite. Those sporties were awfully close,...
Impressive...you're the man, congrats.

No shame handing that fish off....If I can be 72 still doing what I love and already having fought 5 fish I will call it a win.
Is there a way to grease or lubricate the steering wheel?
Feels really tough to turn. Almost a dry feeling.
I have properly greases the outboard...

Always better than no tuna.
Tuna veal LOL. Love it.
Anytime you want to roll, hit me up.
Hahaha... I was just telling that story. My one and only former.... it’s been a few years. Some National Geographic shit.
Yeah bro. Life is good... the fishing not so much. Been getting out a lot but fish not digging me.
Nice fish James.
Where you been? Called you to see what’s up.
Wish you were in SD...if you come down to fish at all hit me up.
I like your philosophy / outlook....solid Yellow at least.
Super rad. What a trip, your son will cherish that forever.
I just bought the df60 a month ago. I searched dealers from OC down to SD. I am super happy with the engine, not so much with the dealership.
dude...you are an animal. Nice work.
Is there a way to fix or calibrate a fish finders temperature sensor?
I have suspected it was low for a while and was confirmed 2 degrees off...
I'm guessing I am about 2/3 of the way to WOT. But at the same time I am being really gentle with the new investment, the moment the sensor came...
I don't know a lot about props, I have been reading up and youtubing but wouldn't mind some feedback.
I just repowered, dealer asked...
It's a rough ride.
Sweet trip, you guys killed it.
The bait tank is sick.
I am learning motors but I did have the exact problem on my 1990 Yamaha a couple of years ago.
Problem was a bad stator, I had a new one put in...
OK sweet, one more option to look at. I did have to have a stator replaced a couple of years ago. thanks.
I pulled the carbs again to get to the reed valves....it was not pretty but I hope this is it.
The gasket between the reed valve housing and...
This is really good stuff....I really appreciate the suggestions, this way I can keep checking things off the list till I find the right one.

Thanks again. I will post up results.
I changed fuel filter yesterday, unfortunately the pump showed up broken. The plastic nipple that the fuel...
OK got it....I really hope I don't have to dive into the carbs.
OK...tons of good suggestions here. I am going to work my way down the list.
It looks like I will need a carb kit to rebuild if I take them...

Nice fish dick!
Great fish and thanks for the heads up on the website for recipes, looks good.
Nice work Jim.
This is perfect guys....thanks so much. Going to re-wire and start over with a protective spray and a de-humidifier.

Where can I go?
The fish gods had you blessed one way or another....awesome.
Damns that Mac White looks good...................mouth watering.
What was the water temp?
Such a rad rebuild and a great maiden voyage.
This is not the one speared....it was closer to SD, also a pig though.
I use the same basic method as above. I cut the salt a little and add some soy sauce to make up that difference.
My exact method, thank you.
Just smoked a bunch of tuna collars and rib meat. Vacuum sealed it.
1. How long is it good vacuum seed in the fridge?
2. Do any of...
Great write up.
Absolutely amazing photos.
Epic....nice work. We found water up to 77 degrees just north of there on Tuesday.
I might have to take you up on that.
Bob....I seriously feel like an addict, I need to get more....gun or rod.
Here is the Poke....I ate Sashimi the first night as I mixed up the Poke....last night I smoked all of the collars and rib meat.
It was something I will never forget. I told my buddy that, "I now understand what the hook n line guys get excited by"

New drain plug on the way, will be installed in a couple of days, removed the old one and letting it dry out presently.
Looks like this...
Update: I got nearly two gallons of water out of my bilge.
Thanks, new drain plug in the way.
Wow.... The shit you DON'T know.
Sounds good, looks like I have to a dr a new step to my routine. Never would have thought.
Great, thanks fellas.
Looks like I learned that I most likely tightened my plug too much.
Thanks to those that made suggestions, first time boat owner so I...
I considered heating it but thought I would most likely f*ck up the fiberglass so I didn't.
I tried penetrating lubricant.
I tried to tighten then...
To be honest...it might have been me. I am first time boat owner so I am learning as I go. I took it out a while ago to drain.
Solid advice on the epoxy....question, if I use 5200 and this happens again won't it be really difficult to switch out?
Sorry for not being more specific.
I have not backside access.
I have the exact kind that "unknown fishermen" put up in the pic.

What did they say about the decal standing up to the marine environment? Sun/Saltwater?
Legal to spearfish in Mexico.....on breath hold....
NOT legal to spearfish in Mexico on scuba tanks....or with a pneumatic gun.
You need some heavy duty handles on both ends or sides. Those bags get heavy quick with ice and a couple of nice fish.
Great Bob...good luck on the upcoming days.
How did the water look? Green or blue?
smoked or BBq'ed
yup...this is a great way, the skin and bones will just pull right out and you have outstanding moist meat...collars too.
Yes thanks...some serious rust. Any tips or replace entire part?
I do know that I have a slow leak, I had to do this process a little over two...
Also, small garage... I have one too. I put the folding trailer tongue on and saved myself two feet.

I guess that logic doesn't make too much sense when it is...

Most of you are aware of the entire Children's Pool BS the city of San Diego is going through. The FOS (Friends of the Seals) are now trying to...
Cool report. You are a trooper. I would have been obsessing about those keys too much to have a good time. Glad all ended well.
I don't post a lot but have been on the site for a couple of years. I am a spearfishermen as you can see by my screen name. I am...
I've seen one in LJ over the last several years. Seen a few out at the Nados.
Nice fish, congrats:hali_olutta:
As a diver I think there's another aspect to consider here. First of all I am always conscious of those fishing and or hooping. If I pull up to a...

See if you can hook up with someone that has a...
In all honesty, I think a call to the kids principal might get something accomplished. I think the police could be left out unless the...
Do the right thing and return the gun. Besides being the "right" thing to do you have no idea how to use that gun nor how to safely take the fish...
Do yourself a favor and never reveal the name of your junior high school, it might get shut down. I think social promotion about summed it...
so was the gun returned to it's rightful owner or not?
mouth watering, congrats on the big yellow
that's why you need to do it without a tank:D
I guarantee you a freediver in 55 degree water diving for bugs for a couple of hours will burn more...
I see that dude in Clairemont all the time.

nice report, congrat's on a good day and the C&R.
:rofl:What rugby teams would those be?
the sale of the gun isn't fake, I know the guy. However, I hope the offer of $250 was a joke, you have to be kidding me. I would have to agree a...
that sucks, there is nothing worse in this world than a thief. Don't forget to look around on Craigs list.
You need to stick your head in places that you think you shouldn't:D During the day you have to be looking under every ledge and in every crevice...

dove yesterday, LJ was pretty bad, 6-8ft. in the reefs, maybe a hazy 8-10 outside, all in all shitty.
that's an amazing catch, congratulations. Cool you released it as well.
most accurate is experience in the water. Check surf size, tide, etc...From experience you will be able to get a better idea of whether or not it...
