    Large Walk around vessels....

    There is a 43’ Delta on Oregon coast Craigslist. Looks like the boat is in Alaska. $279k I can’t think of another boat with that much walk around. Wesmac makes a version that comes close but I think they are in the $1 million range. You might check out the downeastboatforum on instaggram. A...

    Captain’s license courses

    I just got done getting my 25 Masters Near Coastal with towing using Marine Learning systems online program. You have up to one year of self paced study with a proctored exam when you pass the course and are ready. I did mine over three months as my schedule allowed. As with all things in...

    Your Go 2 Shallow Water Bass & Ling Rod.

    Daiwa lexa 300 lefty no line counter with a power handle. Spooled with 50lb tuffline XP Indicator so you have 10 foot line color changes. Trevala TVC70ML or TVC70L. Way to much money for bottom fish but the ML with the lexa is a lot of fun on tuna too.

    Looking for advise...Japan to San Fran

    Google Whopper Stopper Rod. Short and made to haul big fish. I check them out every time I go to Hawaii. Well made rods. Reels- I’d keep a jigmaster handy with and extra spool. Those reels are made to be abused and keep working and spool changes don’t take tools. I’d also have a penn 113...

    Halibut Rod holder for Scotty mounts

    Miller Marine makes metal risers for his cutting board that fits Scotty bases. You could buy those off him and then take them to a welder to add the top rod holder part. Koffler Boats makes one similar to that but I don’t believe they make them to fit a Scotty base.

    Cost of New Outboards?

    Verado line is moving to normally aspirated so it’s going to be just the lower end that’s “verado”. Merc also changed out the non verado line and will be producing a V8 300 hp. Early reports are they got them right this time. They Based the non verado line on the very successful redesign of...

    Dock Wagon, thanks Goatram

    All this talk about losing it over the side of the dock and a recovery rope...how often do you drunks drop a dock cart off the dock? Great setup. Only thing I’d add is brakes.

    Left handed level wind conventional reel.

    Google black magic light tackle harness adaptor. It is a solution for no lugs. I've seen others that work for rods where the butt screws off. It went between the rod and the butt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Left handed level wind conventional reel.

    My wife likes lefties and level winds. Biggest I know of is a Penn 25 Lhlw. Don't fish your area but my wife runs that reel in the Northwest and it is a solid reel. It doesn't have harness lugs but there are a few options for that. One thought for you- reach out to Alan Tani (google his...

    Tuna Etiquette in Oregon

    You will be closest to Newport/Depoe Bay/Coos Bay ports. The first two have both styles of charters where you charter the entire boat or buy just a seat. The boats where you charter the entire boat are probably already booked up for the summer. You could try Newport Marina Store because he...

    Wanna learn how to build rods

    Mud hole has videos that accompany most products they sell. Batson has a good series on Youtube. Search batson chapter 1 rod building. I think it goes to nine chapters. Between Mudhole and the Batson videos I made my first rod. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Ideas for rocket launcher

    Check out the Rod Gaff on Charkbait. It's made to reach rods that are up in rocket launchers. A little pricey for what it is but you could fabricate your own pretty easily. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Philosophical Rod Building Question

    When I go golfing I have a bag full of clubs but only use my driver, 3 wood, 7 wood, 7 iron and putter. My wife who grew up golfing uses every single club. She wins every time. I think fishing rods are the same way. The causal fisherman doesn't appreciate, or more importantly have the...

    Advice on Aluminum Boat 20 foot or less

    An 18-20' Hewescraft Sportsman with a 115 is a good choice. A Hewescraft Pro V is even better. Hewescraft and Alumaweld push their helms forward and generally have much more deck space than other brands. The ride is a little bouncier at the helm but the deck space more than makes up for it...

    Parker 2520 Northwest demo boat.

    I hope you bring this to the Seattle show. I think if a Parker dealer brought a 2520 to the show they'd sell a bunch. Great set up. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Newport Time of Year

    Late August would be the worst time to come to Newport. I keep and rv and boat in Newport all summer and usually head north to Astoria during that time frame. Coho will be closed so you are stuck with chinook. Anyone can catch coho but chinook take local knowledge and even with that it's not...

    Thinking about pulling the trigger on a Defiance 250

    I rode in a 2520 Parker XLD in Hawaii. If I was looking at a 25' boat that one would be high on my list. You find them used for $70-$100k. Huge deck and handled a very rough ocean well. Downside- no floor fish boxes so for tuna you have to get a tote, kill bags or coolers. Good luck...

    Is it too early to talk about halibut bait? =)

    If you call any fish market that cuts salmon you can usually pick up bellies and parts for $1 a pound. With that said that takes someone going through the effort to work with a fish market to get their bellies if they haven't saved their own.

    Insulating liner for fishbox?

    You could look at Wilderness Packs Specialties. He custom makes liners to fit your fish box. They are high quality, easy to clean and hold ice really well. They are a little spendy.

    New boat

    Superstition or Superstitious Always like that for a boat name. My boat name was earned via a prior boat so I can't change or that's what I would have named the new boat. One thing to keep in mind- really cutsie names sound great until the hundredth time you say them on the radio.
