    Squids in tha house

    Where we're you? I can't see any need to run a hog line for squid. I was the only boat where I was. But In the past when we've fished alki with other boats we just toss anchor along the shore away from the dock. If it's calm we anchor in close proximity to others to maximize the lighting.

    Fly fishing albacore.

    There was a period in my life where i only flyfished. As such I soon found myself using a flyrod in applications it is simply not suited for. So i ended up wasting alot of valuable time just because i wanted to be a "purist". Albacore fishing would be one of these applications. Youre just trying...

    Securing a kayak to your boat?

    You must be one of those self hating powerboaters, i cant imagine the guilt you must feel from the carbon footprint that raider is creating! But seriously, ratchet straps, turnbuckles, bungees, twine, velcro would be my go to, in that order.

    Bait tank

    The inlet standpipe with holes doesnt hurt the bait? When i made mine i scrapped the standpipe cause i figured it would be an obstruction and they would die ramming into it. Im gonna put in a bigger tank soon and want to fix any flaws. Ive had mixed results with my 22gallon and rule 500 setup.

    Bait tank

    Trying to undetstand why the huge bait pumps. My math says for a 10 minute fill as a rough baseline, a 500gph can handle an 80 gallon tank, not taking the head into account.

    Need Bullhead Catfish

    I need a couple small bullhead catfish 4 to 8" or so for my pond. If you happen to hook one and arent gonna eat it throw it in a bucket and ill come pick it up. Theyre kinda hard to get this time of year so i gotta get em where i can.

    Do you stop when they ask to check your receipt?

    They have the right to not let you in but they dont have the right to not let you leave or search you.

    Put a 12/0 treble on that and you got yourself an ocean halibut rig.

    I dont like it either. I did the same thing at costco and they tried to tell me the reason is that they want to make sure you got everything you paid for and didnt get wrongfully charged. Lame.

    Any old school Holley carburetor guys here ?

    If problems persist i would consider dropping on an edebrock 600 if thats a 350. You should verify cfm needed for a marine application but 700+ is well overcarbed for a non built automotive 350. Edelbrocks are so easy to tune and very simple. Buy one in the general cfm you need and buy the...

    Securing the anchor to the roller?

    Done. Chain doesnt stretch. No tensioner, turnbuckle or bungie required.

    Self promoters decreasing opportunity

    Maybe if people who fish have a hard time catching then they will quit and there will be less competition on your spot. Then again there will also be fewer people in the sport wielding a far weaker political influence. There are no halibut in the greater puget sound area.

    Why the rear helms?

    I think yall are missing his point. Yeah you need steering and throttle control back there but why hasle with a steering wheel, cables, controls etc when you can go with simple rocker switches, joysticks and actuators. Or go wireless. Half you guys got fly by wire anyways. Pretty simple and...

    Anyone used these switches

    wish I had seen those before I replaced all my switches. I went with lighted toggle switches but I don't like them cause the stick out and can get snapped off.

    Whats so wrong about mismatched motor brands? No fashion police on the water. Honda has pull cord. For that matter i think they all do besides the yamaha.
