    pulling shrimp pots?

    Works great as long as you aren't in an area too crowded. 400+feet of line behind your boat can create a mess if there's a lot of people around. Only bad thing is the shrimp start to escape as soon as it gets to the surface so you need to get back to it asap.

    Something Sexy and very Blue showed up in the mail today!

    Certainly wasn't saying that the 14 lb drag wasn't sufficient for the majority of our fishing up here. (just got my first one myself and I love it) Was just trying to clarify the earlier statement that it was a 25 lb drag is all.

    If you are looking for both they also have a current promotion to buy an ELT1000 and get a resqlink for free. Best price I found on the ELT1000 8203 (which has antennae) is 640.55 plus a free resqlinq worth another 250+. Not a bad deal.

    Steaming Crab

    I personally like the steaming method. Much quicker and the flavor is all there. Little salt and garlic or for an added treat, add a little chardonay to the water. I can have two crabs chowed down before the neighbor even has his pot boiling.:beerbang:

    Smoked Tuna

    If you like bacon, here's one for you to try with the bellies. Awsome stuff and simple as can be. Layer the bellies (skinned) in rock salt for 20 min. Smoke. That's it. To me the one thing to watch especially if you are going to do the salmon and tuna together is that tuna takes WAY less...

    Certainly not tall at 5'9 but a little beefy at 205. Was a heck of a fish. Really wishing I had weighed it. Thanks for the estimates. I was figuring mid 30's myself but being that this was only my second trip and I have yet to weigh one, I'm a little in the dark.
