    WSB advice needed...

    Ok, I've never caught one and don't know enough to target them. Situation here in the SF Bay, they are caught incidentally. Some on live bait in the Bay. Some while salmon mooching. I know they will bite squid, anchovy and live macks. I've read of fishing iron with squid pinned on near the...

    La Paz wahoo!

    I have the family with me so I haven't fish too hard. The water is pretty green close in. Not doing anything on the troll. We left the other day around noon for a beach trip. We ran past a pangero who offered us some live bait. Turned those into a couple of small dorados the kids reeled in...

    Pro-Line 251 I/O to Suzuki outboard conversion

    I took my '98 PL 251 and converted it from an I/O to a bracketed OB. There was some project creep and some other modifications along the way. I am very happy with the end result. A bit of history...... I took delivery in January 1998. I ordered it with a 7.4 Gi Volvo Penta duo-prop. Engine and...
