This is a good deal, GLWS
$1200 total for everything or $1200 a piece for everything?

Wow. One of these days he's gonna do that to the wrong guy and regret it. Props to admitting you were too close. It happens.
Tuesday doesn't look good. Wait a few days.

Thanks for the info.
Old school seeker. Old school Avet. Nice boat.

WOW. Toads and very early
Yup, I was under the impression at long as it can be towed BoatUS would tow it.
SO now I need to verify with BoatUS and the insurance what is...
It didn't sink. The Jig Strike was towing it, but said didn't believe it could be towed thru the big swell.
They cut it loose and the CG jumped...
Nice rock fish on that pile :D
IDK, those baby blue sharks are a hassle. I hope to keep my $30 out of their mouths.
Thanks for the input. I should have mine checked... trust, but verify.
^^^ yup. 3x10 is really nice.
How did you know?
Wahoo on the 9 - offshore!

I had two. One I gave away when all the zippers went out and sold the other.
I went Plano boththe big and small. No zippers to fail.
I saw a video where a guy landed a 180# yft in 20 minutes on the rail. It was a high rail. No knees involved. orale!
One of the reason's I stick with Avet lever drags is the ease of maintenance. I like the way Alan Tani uses the cloth to lay parts out. I've had...
I like those clips, just started using them
Love good fishing
on the grady it's harness. standup and fight like a man. My knee would die if I was on it. Only time I'm on my knees is with a matress.
dog in the wrong position? :D congrats. I'm so old I have to take fotos to remember... works sometimes
I have been buying Daiwa star drags and have been happy.

Hey Ray. You wearing Red shirt yesterday?
Looks good. I use the same components. I started looping my own #750 kevlar.

The fish are there as the divers are sticking good ones. Unfortunately the fish are not on our schedule and divers can kill what they see.

Yup. Happy 4th
Hey Frank. Nice
I was getting them, but it was only when browsing BD. It's the same spam browser virus you get from facebook. It stopped a few days ago.
I guess that's a rhetorical question. Hence your opinion matters just as much as mine. suerte.
you know what to do jefe. There's nothing else to learn on this disaster.
I gotta friend, excellent skipper and fisherman. He jumps on my boat...
glad you are back and doing well. Take it easy and heal. Those fish will be around next year.
Yeah, we will just leave it. Thanks for the report!
Wow; that's some good fishing there! congrats

I have a mxj loaded with 60#, then about 50 yds of 40# mono and a 6ft piece of 40# floro. The JX will have 25 yds of 60# mono and 6ft of 60# floro.

Good stuff there. Looks like a soy/sesame marinade? My favorite. Cuda is an underated meat.
Nice and you cooked them right up!

Good deal there, when does the certification expire?
I think the Visa and TIP are being confused here, but at the end of the day - all Mexican paper work is easy to obtain and affordable.
TIP is for putting your boat in a slip/marina in Mexico. Also should have it if trailering. If your POE is SanDiego and you don't plan to touch...
Good info there. Way to get a few.
Nice! triggerfish ceviche
way to get it done!
Yeah a 50# next to the tuna pens....
Wow. Sweet fishing right there! Felicidades
Jim is the man! So cool. Could talk fishing with him all day. Get er done Jim. You'll be back on the deck soon.
Thanks for the report. I'm itching to get back OTW and your route was my plan. I've had so many of those BFT skunk miles it's a shame.
Yes the booths a CBP south bound. They will be mainly looking for money. Cherry picking it before Mexico can get it :D.
The process is going to...
This is good to know and I just verified this. Process requires two trips and 24 hours for delivery, but it's always good to have options.
Thanks for the info and congrats again.
Prayers sent. Good luck and get well Jim.
Congrats!! These fish were hooked on?
popper fish are great
Nice. I love slinging iron. Wish I could open a bait barge there.
Sounds like a good trip.
I can't think of any, any boat can be made into a fishing boat. I've seen dual consoles out on the 43.
Oh snap it's a dual console. Start cutting and make a center console :D

Sounds good. I crimp mine with the same crimper they use at sd marine exchange.
One down side of series 6 volt is no redundancy.
Squidco will cut it for you

Yeah the Queen got 53 bft and the Condor got 7 bonito.
I would pull the lever and verify the Y chingadera is in the correct position. It is installed on the side plate. The cam rides again it creating...
Eric is a good guy.
Anyone see the commercial boats on the BFT? Any word on the season, quota and this years catch?
thanks for the pic. Still skipping for my first. I keep going back and forth on the treble. Your's looks solid.
If you need join two pieces of vinyl over the closed cell foam, use hh-66. use tuf-stuff vinyl. Tuf-stuff is nylon enforced vinyl. Great stuff.
Have them a call last week. Nada.
I always shop squidco first. I hit charkbait or anglers as backups.
I'm in the market also and squidco doesn't carry them. So it's charkbait.
Wow I've always used bleach. Only when I see algae.
I have a tranx. I cannot remember exactly, but I do not think a clicker would work on the spool release mechanism. Meaning I am not sure it is...
Fish the yak and boat from both locations. If you want a chance at YT from your boat. Fish out of the coral
Thanks. I'm in the market for a jig stick combo.
Sorry for the confusion. Two batteries is always better, but not necessary. A dual battery starter/deep combo if you only have one battery. I...
What does the motor gauge say while underway. If you do not know, there are many cheap 12 volt gauges for your dash.
If you have one battery,...
$109 for a battery jumper? F-that. Be sure the alternator/strator is charging while underway guey. Should read about 13.4 volts.
Hit up Derek(yellowklr). I passed by there a few weeks ago and it looks like the dredging was a success.
Call the Coral. I needed a TIP for a week in the slip.
Your biggest check point will be at the border. Have all your paper work. Duplicate.
Squidco is my goto store for the best service and pricing.
31# nice fish and a fish of a lifetime for most. You, just another day at the studio.
Oh. I'm in the same boat as the OP. I would rather throw them all away and do them again then to lose a fish. I have been bench testing them....
Post up some pics of you serve!
Great memories there! Congrats
I agree with the above comment. Follow the rules to the letter.
Let me know what you do when the weather changes your plans, what do you then?...
I have not emailed a manifest. They pay for the visa and that's it. I love Mexico, but the email system at the government level is bad
My crew buys theirs online. For 180 days. Once it's checked, but another for 180 days

Yeah right, but the boats rolling into cedros will cross into Mexico regardless. The boats going to the nados will just keep their their money and...
México gets paid when the sporties are there. Why throw away$$$?
Looks like the wrong kit.

20-25# off drag. 500yds plus of spec. Plenty.
I like the vmc.

I think there has been a small uptick in petty crime. Just be diligent with your property.

This is some heavy duty shit. Military grade spec crap they use on pilings...
It's on my tranx. 65# green. It's a casting braid. @65#, abrasion is not an issue. It cut thru kelp well last year. Don't think would survive...
Yeah. I think the! Deck hands are responsible for updating also. Even on my skiff, I have went over when trying to keep count when those little...
There was a build your own thread using lag bolts, neoprene washers. I used it. Works great. Will find and post later
If the boat is going over limits, I would approach the skipper instead of calling the warden. Let the skipper to make it right. Maybe cook the...
Chula vista is a better marina, There's a police station there. If you want to fish, I'm guessing the Nado launch and area may hold some bass...
I got one. Tried finding a t-shark to test it on last week, but got blanked. I'm looking forward to strapping in the harness and going...
Hey Jason, I know it took a lot to come out with this. Prayers being sent constantly for you and your family. BDer's have banded together before...
Yamaha's are easy to service until they break. Certified mechanic is the way to go.
I have heard tuna taste like what they eat. I read this when butter fish was used for chunking. Also pen tuna harvested tasted different.
Are the test results you conduct available?
Yo; I can test it. I will also double check the on rod drag test. I was on the boat yesterday and one of my friends was reading the scale. Then...
Yup. Reel is a year old and has not been tested fully on the water. No big fish last year.
I wouldn't fish it at that setting, but could. I feels...
I got 40-42#. Digital and spring scale. Rod in rod holder while friend pulled.
200# leader on top
Yup and new star drags have enough drag pressure to get the fish back to the boat.
I will test tomorrow. I fish this reel about 30#
Squidco. Best service and price.
Doing my own rings was the best thing that I've done all year. Props to Enrie "EUY" for his help. It's easy and fun. If you fuck it up, cut it...
Suerte y buen viaje

Talked to a rep at VMC. They have released the black coastal version of the inline hooks. Blackcoastal is the saltwater version. So I'm going to...
I have a few packs of VMC's, used them over the past two years. They suck when it comes to rust. I'm looking the the MUSTAD hooks....
I like these hooks. I cannot find them in chrome. The black ones rust out too fast at $1 Piece. I think mustad may be the way to go

I gotta big melon. Also need protection from the sun because of an eye disease. I like the Costa Permit.

JIC you missed this thru all the ads.
Cool that you are making your own.
Good luck. They are so small I would take as many you can imagine getting tangled and cut off. How long is...

Oye flaco. Que tal? Nice fish.
Seems like March weather in May. The NOAA map is purple. Maybe Sunday.
Nice. Way to get down there and get it done.
If I have a reel with 100# solid, I can either make a bimini or add a hollow loop to it.
What are the pros and cons to a bimini versus a loop to...
I left my number in our PM. Call me at 858-603-3600.

I'm looking for that rod in a PSW, gonna throw my mxl raptor on it. Small baits, small metal jigs - when the tuna go finicky.
Nice tuna. How did the meat turn out?
You can extend it in your garage with an old rod, wooden dowel or pvc. Then use dry wall tape to build it up for gluing the cap
Yeah. Glad to see they kissed and made up. Even made national news. Sportsmen buy this stuff. Not snowflakes.
Guess we can put away the torches....
That's not too bad. Looks like it removed the gelcoat and is at the first or second mattting and not past the roven.. Repairing it to new...

Yeah. 32G .
I have an S7 that is mint. CL's are going for $225 in this condition. I need $200 so I can buy a rod.
No damage to any corner as it was always...
AI 1 inch butt extension should not change the action - especially if the are light rods. Try it..
My favorite color
Attempting to set a drag above 10# by pulling on the line, especially braid is not too accurate. So I scale all my outfits for accuracy.
Sweet. JR admin.
Yup. went on the same rant last summer. I never realized that setting a drag by hand is useless, Then I started using a scale. Then the light...
The LX is a JX-wide. The HX is a more robust reel than the JX. Best to go to squidco and put the reel on you rod. See how they feel. suerte

Yeah ok. Sounds like a plan. More testing last night and I'm happy with my windon.

What do you set the drag?
Just tested some...
cool, which hollow?
Last year I did not get a tuna on the kite. I didn't put a lot of time on the water, maybe 5 times.
I hope they show biting this year, because...

They won't ban them. They will add Recycling charge. Add money to the coffers without any effort.
I have been using izorline. I have a 50 class reel to fill with 130#. Looks like Jerry Brown is cheaper than izorline. Is it thinner?
Diesel is becoming a commercial only application in Cali. The loonies in Sacramento want to remove all combustion engines by 2030.

It's no longer connected to the truck. Could have been a handful of things. Avoiding another car is my guess.
I heard the large percentage of deens are used for live stock feed. Provides the protein .needed

New trucks are too expensive. I'm keeping my '04 f250 with an '06 engine. 260k milles. $300 a month in maint a year.

Looks nice. How much?
Nice! good to see BOLA kicking out good service and fish.
The black chicken!!! that's great. Got a coop of empties sitting on the table now. :D

Congrats in the tuna
Congrats! Tuna at Cedros, should be your way soon
Avet reels are very easy to service. The LX is too much reel for the yak, but free is free. Congrats. That reel will take on a lot of salt ware...
I'm guessing yes, hence waiting until next week. IMHO, it is the worse website for accurate information
Backside looks locked down. I can figure out how far those areas stretch in relation to the reef.
Beautiful combo. I got my root canal done in TJ a few years back, feels and looks great. Saved a ton of $$$ with my US insurance. PM me for...
Nope! Just stay on top of the maintenance, raycor filter. fish often!

I'll take the orange buoy float ballie chingadera. for $15
Do you set the drag with a scale? Do you test the difference between strike and full?
I like spectra to floro. Not a lot of stretch - but at 30%...
Yeah that's a good idea and you can get bait also for the trip back up the line.
You can do it. If you plan to anchor on the lee side of south island, you will need your FMM visa. 30 gallons - a light scoop.

Nice work Ross! back on the yak?
I'd eat all three. but grilled cali and lingcod soup are my favorite options
Good work old man.
amazing clean. great motor and tranny in that beast.
There was another hull pulled out of the mold around that time that was a great hull. Still on the water.
If the original owner was on site...
You may have a good hull. Then again.
most of the fotos are...
I use the surgeon knot to attach floro to mono to up 40#, so 13#'s of drag. No failures. it's a great knot. Been using it for about 10 years now.

Very cool report.
The best part will be people, driving south on the 905, using the emergency lane because - well - they are mostly tijuaneros. :D When Otay south...
Good question and am interested in the answer. Can you tell me is you have a mono shock leader on the spool?
I used to use the RP knot. I would tie it in pinch if I had to tie something quickly on the boat. 7 turns is about what I used. I however would...
I went FG for 40# and below. Loops 60# and above.

I have yet to catch a big fish on my topshot, but I...
Yeah 4strokes. HPDI are built like tanks.
OK I will take you up on the offer. Can you give me a short run down on the specs of you windon you use on your yummy reel please?
Agreed. Nice way to bruise the meat
Got some hats for the boys to represent in Tijuana. They look great. Thanks

Ditto. I like pockets. Would buy more of they were pocketed.

Damn I missed this also. Should be recorded no?
Good try. You will get him next time. There are those who have not even seen a tuna under the boat this year. Keep at it!

Pangas are great boats for flat water or inshore fishing. The lack of deadrise is their downfall.
Great report. Good to hear SQ is on the fish. Glad to know the next generation of skippers are spot on.
Best way to test is to tie off onto something like a trailer hitch and pull on the rod. Squidco lets me do this as long as I do not fuck up...
Yes I agree it it easier to tie heavier lines. I have found it;s the amount of tension on the spectra that can cause difficulty on lighter lines....
Recently started using the FG knot on 40# or less. Tested at home and on dorado and YT. works great. no more swivel. SX Raptor 20 or 30# floro....

I bought my Grady for $13k without a sea trail. If you know the boat and what to look for - it can be done.
WTG. Good to hear the fishing is picking up in SQ.
The meat will not go to waste, claro.
Yes I also found large BSB meat is not the best fish meat and will not kill another.
What Igor did is...

Nice. good job
Measured fish would be if the US regs call for a 22inch hali, you cannot posses a short hali in US waters from Mexico. It is a bit confusing, I...

Never really took into account the closure schedule, but it looks like my 8/4 trip working the area SW of the island is dead. Can anyone confirm...
Nice! love fishing the islands.
Mine looks the same, but I use a clear dry bag attached to an orange pfd. The dry bag will float, but you will not find it in the dark. I also...
Nice - looks hot!
1/2 day targeting dorado?
Nice. Life is good!
I got an HXw for my kite reel and thought it would be cool to load it with hollow core. Why? fuck if I know. I had heard it give more capacity...

Old gradys have lousy fish storage.
