    Bluefin in the Bay???

    Yep, I drove by a big model foamer that time right outside of the harbor with a guy hooked up. We were idiots and just stared in awe. Chased them later in the day in 600ft of water. They are fish, it happens. Doesn't mean they'll do it again anytime soon

    Who handles uphill the best?

    I own 2 on the list and none is a superstar uphill. However, the whaler and Grady's are a little better than the radon and Parker's uphill. That said the radons are the all around winners out here. My old glacier Bay was best uphill but down and in a beam it sucked.

    Do you trailer the boat? I have a 24 outrage and that's as big as practical for solo trips. I had glacier Bay 2680 and have a 25 Davis, both are a lot of work to launch, fish, recover solo

    Should I invest or buy different boat? Radoncraft 1989 22ft

    Oh yeah, gas I/O radon hulls are slow. They are a little rough in a head sea. You won't make up the difference in gas on OBs unless you are running a lot. You would probably need a 300 or bigger OB or twins. Radoncrafts are heavy

    Should I invest or buy different boat? Radoncraft 1989 22ft

    You sell that and anything you buy under $40k is going to be a substandard hull. Like the other guy said, fix it little by little and do as much yourself as you can. As long as you are running now, no need to do a full overhaul. A conversion, etc are all nice but you are talking about major...

    Dana Point 8/31 porpoise and patties

    change the range on your fishfinder from auto to like 300 feet or less when you are in deep water looking at paddies. it will stop doing that 3ft reading and let you look at the top of the water column. good luck

    Has anyone ever fished Drakes Bay, CR

    where you gonna be? i surf fish all the time but over on the Caribbean. caught everything from 1lb jacks to 100lb tarpon so it just depends what you are looking for. on that coast, the river mouths are always the most productive. you can fish bucktail jigs, swimbaits, plugs or small iron...

    Kelly by far, or his son Oscar Lupe and Salvatore are good 2nd stringers but only if he's booked.

    Has anyone ever fished Drakes Bay, CR

    Never fished Drake myself but have heard it is a short run for sails this time of year. Should be good. John, who are you fishing with in Tortuguero? I've been down to that area about a half dozen times and always have a great time. Good Luck on the first trip. This trip I'll have some time...

    Daiwa SLD 30

    the board convinced me to buy 2 (20II and 30II) over avets last year. not enought fish on them yet but love 'em so far. got to pull on a ~400 lb salmon shark with the 20 and it did well (unfortunately I didn't). they also cast great for that size of a reel.

    Newport Bch 12-15

    i was out sat night down in laguna and they were all pretty deep in their cracks, not many crawling. i was out too early (10pm) but managed to wrangle a couple. vis was unreal, with the moon you could turn off the lamp and still see outlines in 25 ft of water. too bad the swell is coming up

    Going to San Quintin 8/12-8/14

    head around the cape and then northwest. start looking for structure in 80-150 ft and you'll find rockfish right there within a couple miles of the mouth of the bay. no need to go far for that stuff. or head out about 20 miles and start looking for the new artificial reef (a 20' pursuit)...

    San Quinten 8/6 BOAT SINKS

    No, I think it was one of Meno's. Some of the guys at Pedros and Don Eddies are good and some are just boat drivers. I ended up being passed off to the Yolanda from Don Eddies on Sat. with a third string boat driver. At least we got back in.

    Thanks everyone for all of the advice. I picked up a sld-20II and 30II on Friday and they'll be headed up to Alaska with me this week to lift some doors off the bottom. They feel great although a little heavy but freespool like a dream.

    Looking for a ready out of the box 2 speed for 50#. I like the features of the Avet but had a bad experience with the loud clicking dog on the old jx/lx. Can't seem to find any bad feedback on the Daiwas other than the handle. Suggestions???

    ?? Avet EX 4/02 ??

    Yeah the clicking dog drove me crazy. i bought a jx and a lx when they were on sale($139/149) but sold them because i could not stand the sound. Some of my Newells tick but nothing like these. I have heard that they fixed this on the newer models but haven't checked them out yet. My pro gear 251...
