I bolted it to the kicker bracket after one trip when the...
Were the lines cut clean,or did they snap off?
Or it bounced off on the freeway.
There’s a group of 50 boats heading up there,thanks for the info.
Must great enchiladas for $1,500.
I have 2 WN400’s 7.1 ,they cast a mile!
I like the 7.1 ratio.
I also have 2 Komodo’s,463 and a 471.
Love them all.
I would buy at least two.
I have a Tranx 500HG and might have to buy another,unless Okuma makes a 563,571 Komodo.
Listen to what the customer wants!
Are these for bird watching?
I kinda feel sorry for you.
The previous owner must have known about the fuel smell/tank problem as well as the bellows leaking.
Volvo has a prop...
There’s something in the carbs,clean them again.

It’s running too lean,when you push the key in,your...

What’s the gear ratio?
A buddy just bought the newer model 463P (improved handle).
The new handle is sweet, with 2 different mounting holes.
Normal hole and a power hole...
The 2530 has a 9.5’ beam making it more stable than the 8.5’ beam Davis.
I’ve fished a 2520 with the 9.5’ beam many times.
I’ve also fished...
I don’t think it will work idling.
O2 sensors need to be warmed up.
Current cars use heated oxygen sensors.
Older fuel injected cars didn’t use...
Judging by what happened, the 7 leaf springs might be the best solution,up grade.
I would buy the springs from Pacific Trailers,(don’t shop for...
I have the same rod.
It’s plenty stiff,and casts poppers great!
The stiffness helps picking up the slack line just after casting.
I haven’t hooked...
Black Diamond 809H is nice with a Lexa 400 or Komodo 471.
Looks good Bill Clinton!
I use mine also. The salmon bleed out good in the water.
Then we gut and gill,then place them back in the tank.
What’s next,a GoFundMe account for the Ranger 85 captain?
Maybe now you have to sign a release of liability form before boarding.
Great report and pics mate!
I wouldn’t do it.
I’ve experienced a battery blowing up,it sounds like a gun shot,acid flying everywhere,15’ in the air.
This happened while it...
I have 3 Black Diamond 809’s. 809H,809HXF,809XHJ.
I guess I’m partial to the slightly heavier rods.
I’m hoping to use mine on tuna.
I would think that the 809 would be better if you want to throw irons and use as a live bait rod.
fishing can get very expensive.
Can you cast that hot rod 6/0 or 600H 75 yards?
Adjust the transducer angle and or raise higher/lower.
7.1 without a doubt.
I have a FRHM14 mm.
What’s Snap-on charging for them now?
Make an offer. Retired technician.
Best tool for replacing a Toyota fuel filter.
Squidiot,are you still in that business?
It’s been awhile,but I’ve bought it from you in the past.
Its hard to go looking with the good salmon bite going on.
Nick,do you have a video with the bait balls that the salmon are on? There were some...

This is for fishing reports. Next time post in the fishing chit chat board.
I use 15 lb weights up here at Port San Luis. Salmon are deep right now.
I'm sure the rectifier is way cheaper and easier to change.
I'm not sure about the newer 4 strokes,but on the older engines,if you turn the...
Come on Okuma,we NEED Komodo ss 563 and 571 size reels made.
You can do it!
Awesome casting little reel that holds 300 yards of 50 lb spectra. Max drag 22 lbs.
I have 2 of them.
Good luck with sale,bargain price too.
I bet the batteries weigh 5,000 lbs.
The high voltage battery for a Prius weighs around 70 lbs.
My boat out of Port San Luis or Morro Bay within the next 2 weeks.
Not so good of a report,next time add the details and pictures.
Next time post in the Chit Chat or tackle section.
This section is for reports!
Penn 16 vsx
Bargains,I wish I lived close to you.
You might want to save it for when PG&E cuts your power off this summer when it gets windy.
Generators maybe hard to find at that time.
Never drop a live halibut on the deck. Not unless you want a jumping fish flying around bruising the meat.
Gaff the legal halibut,break some gills...
I use a Tiagra 12,filed half way with 50 spectra (500 yards).
Only filled half way kinda changes the gear ratio.
I also have a Tiburon power...
It's pretty annoying.
BD big brother tracking our every move.
WSB wins a halibut derby?
Sounds fishy,or smells like fish.lol
Have you used it after the latest repairs?
My buddy used to own a battery shop.
He said he had more warranty problems with Optima batteries than any other brand.
"Optimus are great for...
Congrats on the new to you rig. Enjoy,your new fish slayer.
Perfect timing,the fishing season is about to turn on!
Are you going to name it?
Grady Whites are good boats.
OMC sea drives are no good. It would be by expensive to replace them.
I would keep looking.
My buddy had the 25' DV with the Volvo Diesel. It got 2 mpg consistently.
With the 173 gallon tank we went out as far as 90 miles.
The deck space...
Great report and pics Min!
I have the 50 or is it 55 lb on two Lexa 400's.
I've caught bonito up to 12 lbs with it,no problems at all.
I called them about 6 weeks ago and was on hold for 35 minutes.
When the guy finally answered the phone,he said "please hold"
I said I've been...
Ali had a better looking deckhand!
Those are very good salmon hooks.
Most are made of stainless,great hooks,but if used they should be changed every year.
The stainless hooks will...
Do a search,other reports available on this boat.
I have 2 wn400's,no problems yet!
Still doing it on my IPhone.
WTF tracking my every move.
They are legal north of Point Conception.
Nice reel,casts a mile.
I know,I have 2 of them.
They are right,the oil pump picks up oil from the screen.
Ill give you $100 for the POS.
It's happening on my IPhone.
Good news he's up and walking.
The fish are getting a chance to grow before he's on the water again!
Hope all goes well and your out fishing next week with a report!
I would bet it's a Sea Fox.
My buddy had a similar thing happen to his 19' CC.
What gear ratio is it?
A buddy bought a "buy it now" Diawa LexaHD400 for $68 from ebay. What he got was a Lexa keychain. He sent it back and filed a complaint with ebay....
Great video and catch Nick.
Halibut and BFT videos next?
Bay Area striper lures!
I saw a pic today of a BFT that was caught there today.
Fish reported on baysidemarinesc.com today. 40-50 lb BFT.
Awesome,great effort and nice BFT!
There were 2 of them Friday. They left Friday afternoon.
They are gillnetting,my buddy boat knew one of them,he had over 1,600 lbs.
It was tough...
I heard there's 3 gillnet boats working it out there.
They are 1 mile off the island.
I thought these were outlawed?
Check out fox-marine.com
They have engine gateways that plug in and transfer the data to your nmea2000 gps/fishfinder. All engine data available.
Nice fish and report Jose.
That's my favorite area to fish.
We are catching salmon up at PSL,maybe we will see you up here.
I don't think it's legal in California to harpoon a halibut (fish) unless you have a commercial fishing license.
Before filtering your fuel,I would take your fuel pick up tube out.
Some have a fuel screen on the end. If yours does,it could be semi plugged.
There is a few brands out there already.
"Sueno",a member on here sells them.
I had a simular problem with a 24' Skipjack.
The fuel pickup tube in the tank had a fine crack near the top,just below the threads.
It was sucking...
Is it free or post a price.
They were $10 each at the Oxnard swap meet today.
My 2320 weighs 8,000 lbs on the trailer,with a full tank of gas (150 gal).
I have a 2010 Tundra 5.7 w/towing package (10,200 lbs max.)
It tows my...
The VMC permasteel treble hooks are awesome.
The 4/0's are the same size/hooks that's on the Raplala CD 18's.
I bought 50 on eBay for $30.
Petrale sole,they taste excellent!
That's the only difference,the newest ones come with Okuma's improved power handle. Most on ebay have the old style power handle.
I've never fished out of one.
Nice job,I would like to see a Rapala deconstructed.
I would cut the studs (screws) shorter.
I can see the screwdriver marks on the good one,and the broken one.
Don't over tighten the new one.
It's not made out of aluminum.
Customs found 225 lbs of cocaine in two boats at Port Hueneme today,maybe they missed the motherload.
That's the best fish cleaning assembly line I've seen!
Your buddy whacked them good.
I’ve used the white 55 lb line. No problems with it.
Sweet,hope you limited out. Thanks for posting.
On the corner of hiway 1 by Noyo Harbor there's a Harvest Market. They sell breakfast by the pound (sausage,bacon,eggs,hash browns) in the...
2nd in line if the deal falls thru.
Nice boats with an 8' beam.
Most newer boats have an 8.5' or 9' beam.
If he doesn't,I do. I have 10 rockcod molds,1-2-3-4-5 pound sizes.
Nice video. I have a buddy that is a falconer also.
He has a breeding pair of Harris hawks,2 working hawks and 7 falcons.
I've gone rabbit hunting...
That was awesome of you for doing this!
Congrats to the winners!
A few personal on-line web stores in the classified section.
I don't mind the sinkers for sale,but I think a time limit or a limit on bumps might...
I'm hoping one of the Wicked Tuna boats use one.
Another idea,the salmon season might be open. Fort Bragg can be awesome for large salmon (30+ lbers)
One operation had crab trips,they cooked them...
I have one that mounts on 1" railing.
Rams 38,Pats 36
It looks like the oil rigs are on high spots.
I know Toyota and Lexus use direct injection,it's the latest system.
Good article on the Etec engines,but they only mentioned carbon dioxide.
I read they are not allowed on lakes,no way can they run cleaner.
Any engine burning oil can't compair to a 4 stroke.(emission wise)
I believe you found the problem. Air entering cooling system.
I replaced the same #18 and o-rings on my rig. (Not broken,maintainace)
"Money for nothing,chicks for free"
This is a great deal on indestructible tackle boxes.
I have one and love it,strong enough to sit on.
A buddy has both,a 30W and a 50W,$400 for both.
My Tundra's rated to tow up to 10,400 lbs,I don't know where you get your info.
My 2320 on the trailer weighs 8,000 lbs loaded with a full gas tank,150 gal.
I have a 2010 5.7 Tundra w/tow package that tows my rig very easily.
What's with the soft scratchable surface on these reels (you can scratch them with your finger nail).
I like the hard anodizing other reel...
Wow,lots of work Ross,looking good!
I know of a 1979 20' Skipjack east of Paso,maybe your next one? Lol
They all work good. I have a buddy that's the best squid fisherman I've seen.
He can slay they with any color,different shaped rigs.
You can catch squid during the day,we do all the time.(in season)
Look for meter marks on the bottom,jig squid jigs when you find the marks.
The 400WN is a very nice reel. (I recently bought 2)
I like the handle.
Halibut should be around at that time of year.
A Lexa 400 would be perfect. They have cast control,and they are very easy to cast a long ways.
I use one of the pointed ends of a crab leg on the dungies,should work on the rock crabs.
Black Sea bass
Charkbait has $100 off Okuma Andros 12Sii,metaloid 5nii,5ii,12ii on sale.$60-$80 off
I just recently bought both,PerplexedAngler post is right on.
The Komodo needs an upgraded handle.I put a Cortez 10 handle on it,$22.(Check the...
Shocked that you would risk your engine on used exhaust manifolds.
Fix it right or not at all.
Got a Lexa 400 on a Graftech GIS80H (30-40)
I haven't caught anything except bait on it,as I just got the reel.
I like the action of the rod,lots...
Lexa 400 and Komodo 463 and 471.
Good choice. You get what you pay for.
Another vote for Pacific Coast Sportfishing.
It's great because it's local,southern calif fishing.
I have the Louisiana LG 900.
You are going to like it.
The temp setting goes up to 600.
I've done steaks at 450,and get nice grill marks from...
Nice 3 week old report! Great catches.
Thanks,a little earlier reporting would be great!
Is it a 2 day event? Good luck to those fishing in it.
I've fished on one of these. Pure badass fishing boat.
I put the new Goodyear Endurance tires on my trailer.
Redesigned side walls,awesome trouble free tires so far.
They are radial tires.
It's hard to come up with a combo set up.
Are you casting the bait far away from the boat?
I just bought a few Lexa's and Komodo's to help with my bait casting.
Is this a BFT trip or island trip?
Combat BFT tuna fishing.
I just got my 2nd Cortez handle from Okuma, p.n.#15000454
Grind (Dremel tool) the side closest to the retaining screw and everything lines up perfect!
Looking at the new one,the Cortez handle may be the better choice.
Got my 2nd one coming in the mail from Okuma.
Very nice custom boat Chuck!
Lobsters live in the rocks.
Set your hoops tight to the rocks.
I got a similar,but slightly shorter black/gray Cortez handle,(part number from Tunareeltroubles,15000454,$21 shipped,for my Komodo 463.
Thanks,but I already ordered one from Tuna Reel Troubles.
Where can I get a Cortez 10 handle?
I did a search for Okuma.com,but it's just an advertisement.
It sucks that I can't just call them like Avet...
I have a set of the Volvo bronze manifolds in the garage.
Picked up 12 Bonito 5 miles straight out of Port San Luis Wednesday.
We were checking out a rumor of BFT in the area.
I looked it up and Phenix doesn't show pics of the guides.
A pic would help.
A buddy has a heavy Crome "HAPPY D" lure.
It's about 9"-10" long.
Does anyone know anything about them?
I saw the Starman Candy Bars go for good money.
I have 4 of the 112 models.
Nice,you guys found a pot of gold!
My 2010 Tundra w/tow package (10,300 max towing) tows my 23' Parker great.
My Parker on the trailer weighs 8,000 lbs.
The Tundra has a 5.7L...
Went out Friday evening looking around. Stayed the night at Bowden point,caught macs,plus almost a flying fish. Saturday went out looking 8-10...
My buddy got one,after the court fees,it was $1,200.
Sent you a private message.
Does it free fall the anchor?
What's the price?
The Lexa 300 is pretty small,casts a mile.
I know people that use them on party boats too.
A little more versatile than a smaller reel.
I would go for the Komodo. Easy,long casts every time.
It looks like a non factory tank.
You can customize a Lexa clamp to fit the Komodo.
Nice report,at least the skipjack fight good.
Will you ship?
These are awesome.
Maybe the o-ring fell out during installation of the OD.
It fits in between the OD and tilt housing
Walmart has them
Same here,1997 5.7 Volvo dps 1.95
Mine is also the 1.95,we must have identical boats.
What O/D? I have a used 2,300 hrs DPS dual prop O/D
I'll bid $25
How much are the boxes?
I saw some at Bass Pro Shop for around $9.89,that would be $40+
Are they cheaper somewhere else?
Calstar has a warranty replacement fee also.
Check out the Phenix Megladon MPX-S 800H 8' PE 6-10
It's very stiff,great for casting poppers.
Check a restaurant supply store.
They sell different sizes of cutting boards.
Lots of people still use stainless wire for salmon trolling.
Do you have a Tiburon handle for a TLD 20? If you do,I'll take it.
TPS sensors have idle points inside. It's possible your idle points are not set at idle.
I would check the TPS sensor with an Ohm meter.
My buddy had a 19' center console,around a 2001 model.
We went albacore fishing out of Port San Luis,got back in to find out we had 200 gallons of...
I have a 12ii that's been great,no complaints!
I would buy another one.
I have a 97 volvopenta throttle body injection. It starts in neutral with no throttle and idles up when cold.
I have the Goodyear Endurance tires. No problems,highly recommend them.
Awesome fish Frank,
fish of a lifetime!
Bayside marine reported a few caught at the Pioneer sea mount.
I second the Goodyear Endurance tires,they have been great so far!
Nice boat,you did a great job on it.
Your hired! JK (Only If I had some work needed on the house or boat).
Let's see pics of the finished product.
Nice fish,50 lb class for sure.
The shrimp look like spot prawn,very good eating.
Mismatched cap and rotor.
You should always replace them as a set.
I would check the ignition timing after replacing both.
Best deal on a 17' whaler..a few thousand bucks spent on the railing alone.
I'm sure it's a great unit,but since it's discontinued,they stop servicing (repairs) them after the warranty period.
Bump for Chucks boat.
I've caught more fish with the bigger flashers.
Either send it in or take it in.
Being an retired mechanic,I've seen people order parts and supply the wrong info (description,model,generation...

952-999 pounds without engine oil,lower unit oil or propeller....wow!
I would put the old prop back on and see how it fit.
Nice fish Russell!
It's looking good,hope this wind doesn't roll it over.
Thanks for the reminder.
They're kind of expensive on eBay
Get ahold of some charts,look for sandy bottoms.
What Volvo O/D does it fit?
Good luck,hope it lays down for you.
I've heard multiple reports of dipping the front into swells,taking on gallons of water.
This is for reports only.
Get a security bolt for the swivel bolt also.
An old friend had a SeaDrive. Lower unit shaft was frozen to the crankshaft. It didn't look pretty after cutting various holes to get it apart....
I would get a bigger one.
I have the 24" x 60" and can only get 4-5 35 lb WSB in it.
Spend $500 to upgrade them and you still have a $300 reel.
Buy current reels,they have better resale value.
Thanks for that!
I would check the connections for your fuse box and ground strip.(both ends)
I have a Metaloid 12ii. So far my biggest fish on it is a 55 lb WSB.
No regrets on buying it,I would buy another one.
There's a chance that your thermostat is stuck open,causing condensation inside the crankcase. (Water in the oil,combined with a fuel smell from...
Pressure test and if good,have the gasket surfaces resurfaced by a machine shop.
My 1979 24' open has the same factory screw down cover over the gas tank.
whats the towing capacity?
My 2 16vsx's
Possibly the switch is grounded or wired wrong.
Check out Boggs boots.
Eureka Marc has the same boat and motor.
That's a solid reel,I have one myself.
Good luck with sale.
My money's on one of the fuel pumps went bad. (Water in the fuel)
The weight limit used to be 3k,have you had your rig weighed?
My buddy's 21' Bayrunner weighed in at 2,700 lbs
We used to tip Dave for his hard work.
Rumor of Gaviota pier repairs to start soon.
Nice! Does Dave still do the launch?
I haven't launched there in 10+ years.
Lots of smoke and ash up in Santa Maria.
I have a Louisiana pellet grill,with the digital temp control.
Thanksgiving we also had 3 turkeys,one roasted,one deep fried and one smoked at 170...
Blue chip stamps,that was a long time ago! Lol,I remember going to the Blue Chip store as a kid.
I still have most of my stuff too.
Nice boat Ross,I bet it gets good fuel economy.
Forget 26' Stripers,worst boat going up swell,too light. Skipjacks suck going down swell.
What a bargain!
Nice Skipjack,great fish killer.
Looks like a petrale sole. Excellent eating.
Congrats on figuring out how to deal with the enforcement cops.i know of two different people who have had to deal with them.
There hasn't been any good counts in that area.
Go to Eureka and go with EurekaMarc.
Not that far of a drive to get into them good.
Nice Marc,hope they hang around.
Nice rig,welcome aboard!
Nice report and pics,thanks!
I haven't been back to Michigan in years.
Too bad their the washigoogan style.
How about $15
I've been reading that the Coronado Islands have been good.
sportfishingreport.net sometimes gives the location of where they are fishing,and you...
I have two similar boats that get 1.9-2.0 mpg.
Would you want someone following you?
They have discounted prices,unheard of for marine parts.
I would try and get the wife and girls out to make sure they don't get sea sick before finding a boat that suits needs.
Maybe you could drill a hole and place an inspection cover over it.

Stick with the 8500,I bought the 9500 because of the line capacity (375 yards 80 lb spectra).
I agree with B-MAN. I would try loosening the screws on the transome and raising it up.
It should be even with the bottom of the hull.
Your gain adjustment appears turned down. I would turn it up until you start to get a little clutter, then turn down slightly.
Good job Captain Dan!
Check out Pacific Coast Sportfishing,screw the rest.
The 2sp 12II is an awesome reel,buy one and you'll see.(lower gear ratio)
I once had high speed single speed reels and I hated them,especially...
Only out of Fort Bragg. 32-37 miles out.

Possible chance of bypassing the real problem with no side effects.
Go see Brian at Valley Prop in Oxnard, he will get you dialed in.
I've experienced the same exact thing on a car.
Problem was in the harness like I was saying.
Disconnect all the wires off the alternator.
Nice fish Lou!

Good decision leaving La Paz.
Pacific halibut at the Hitching Post in Casmalia.

3 speed with overdrive.
Father-son trips are the best!
Great report,and keep on going!

Thanks for posting and the pictures of your local fish.
It's nice learning about fishing in different parts of the world.
The albies historically show up after heavy rain years that usually occur every 10 years.
This might be the year.
Awesome dog,is the mother a lab?
Doesn't polishing remove the anodized coating?
That's just awesome,I need my Parker deck done just like yours!
I like the colors.
It's hundreds of miles off South Africa,in the Indian Ocean.My neighbors wife is from there.
Nice catch,report and pics,you are a lucky guy!
Also check out Redwoodcoastspreaderbars.com
Cool pics and a great product.
West marine outlet has the 94sv on sale for $919.99. Just got the email today.
I'll take them. Sent PM
1.Tomcod on Pismo pier
2.White sea bass
4.Costco king crab
Check with Pacific Trailers.
They have a smaller shop in the Bay Area,they are very helpful there.
I'll take the thresher shark book.
Who won and did anyone take pics?
Congrats to the winners.
I wish they made a wide model,kinda narrow for my swim fins.(feet)
You can take it to a truck stop and get it weighed for $10.
When I do it I disconnect the trailer from the hitch.
In a near by city a lady was caught on camera following a UPS truck and picking up the packages that had been delivered.
It looks very good,thanks for the write up.
I have a Louisiana smoker and haven't done a brisket yet.
I've done beef jerky, pork butt roasts and...
Nice looking dinner!
Costco has New York strip on sale. Choice $5.29 lb. Prime $10.23 lb minus $25
They are about 12.5 lbs each
I was using the lighter rod and noticed I had to crank more line to get the line tight,(rod loaded) to work the popper.
A buddy had the heavier...
I had a 30-60 lb rod that was too light. I exchanged it for the 30-100 lb Phenix Megladon.
Sent you a PM
Very nice fish and good report!
Nice boat,it should sell quick!
Could a person (team) spend the night in the parking lot? is there over night slips avail?
I'm about 5-6 hrs away and have never been there.
Can some real halibut fishermen enter it?
My sister passed away unexpectedly so I named it after her. "Donna Marie"
It's best to call a few times to check.
I sent some TLDs in and got them back 2 months later after a few phone calls.
It sounds like if you take them in you get much better service.
It was on a 3/4 day rockcod trip.
I have a metaloid 12II that works fine,no problems.
Great report! The ISC valve only controls the idle speed.
Maybe the electric motor (for the ISC) was shorted.
Nice rig Ben!
Cool wife,you lucky guy!
Good for you! Enjoy your boat.
What model was it?
A radar and a radar reflector would be good to have at night in the high traffic area.
Fricken googans strike again.
Sorry,but had to laugh about the video. Spot on luck.
Hope it gets better for you.
Very good! Thanks!
Because the motor has been worked on,I highly recommend checking and adjusting the base timing (at idle),then NEXT check and adjust the max...
I just bought one. Trying it out this afternoon and night.
9" screen,chirp and side view should be sweet!
Is it the original style or the new model?
Nice yt and report Matt.
I thought something would be happening coastal.
Great song but BS without pics.
Get rid of it,it could be a lemon.
I'll take it off your hands.
Buy six filters and change them as needed.
Don't add any fuel until almost empty.
One current report said the crew caught 50 pieces of squid at San Clemente island which they caught their BFT on.
Maybe next time go back to the...
Nice catch and report.
Did Carl rig your Yummie?
Codletts for tacos.
Nice boat and nice fish to break it in!
I hope you don't have some new damage after its all back together.
You will find them
I third the Calstar 770XH with a Penn 16 vsx
Do a search on YouTube,lots of info on there.
Nice fish and report! Congrats !
This is what they are using to catch the big bluefin with.
If I didn't already have one I would buy it.
1-0 here,if I lived closer it would be much higher.(20-19) haha.
I would go with the Garmin.
As long as I can medicate
what kind of kite rod and reel does it come with?
Are the Yummies BFT rigged?
Nice yellowtail and report!
Im glad I started following this thread.
The undisclosed damage to the cowling plus it looks like they didnt flush it sucks.
They sure didnt win...
Sweet trip and it will get better!
Are they split rings or do they need to be soldered or welded?
Go to Valley Props in Ventura,hes the best!
Congrats on hitting 1,000 posts.
You can buy a kite and some rigged Yummies now!
My guess is you knocked the starter solenoid wire off the starter.
I just ordered one from Charkbait for $49.99
I think they have a shop in San diego.
That's great service.
I sent some reels into Shimano's factory repair shop a few years ago. After a few months,I called them and they said they...
Good way to thrash it.
I have in the past with bad results.
Congrats to Chris,nice rig!
Judging by your flip flop,it looks 38"-40". My estimate is 25 lbs,nice fish.
Id be pissed off.
Don't do it.
Your front wheel drive Highlander is probably a 2wd unit. The hitch weight will make the rear end bottom out lifting the front end...
You can have the bait casters,I'll stick with reels that I'll have a better chance of landing a fish of a lifetime.
Yes,I have owned bait casters...
Do you have insurance on it? If you do file a claim. If you don't,you should consider it.
It's not that much a year.
Time to upgrade to an offshore boat. (Parker,defiance,whaler,Davis etc)
You only live once and the BFT are here now!
You can do it!
Would you sell the Maximizers separate?
That was a great trip,report and pics!
Whats the best field of vision (5x35,12x40,10x50) on a private boat?
Your having a tough time getting your boat out!
The Port San Luis Halibut Derby is this coming weekend.
It seems you have zero hydraulic assist.
You already replaced one end of the system (pump) so it must be the slave unit.
Nice fish,usually you get 50% of fillets off a halibut.
Bet it weighed 26 lbs.
There's a saying "if it works,dont fix it" you got great life out of your batteries,no need to switch to a different system.
If I lived down there I would get Fish Dope.
Don't depend on radio fish.
If the warranty sucks or takes forever why try a cheap priced reel.
What kind of reel is it?
I think you might get 6-7 years out the the AGM batteries and 5 years out of the wet cell batteries.
Not worth double the costs.
Not unless you...
Check out the Garmin 74sv or the 94sv.
I was told Lowrance/Simrad do not have true chirp yet.
The new Garmin units do have the closures on them.
It's a fat blunt!
Sorry to say I think you would have been better off buying plain steel lug nuts.
Different metals together in saltwater create...
Take the power head (engine) off. (Usually around 8 bolts) the hard part is lifting it off.
First try turning it or the shaft to the lower unit to...
Did you try pushing the OD right and left from behind the boat?
i don't think the factory digital tack is a universal unit.(fits anything).
All newer engines have high speed comunication,usually thru one or two...
Where did you disconnect the steering cables?
Check for grease fittings on where the OD pivots.
I'm sorry I'm not experienced with Mercruisers...
They are as good as any Parker,Davis,Radon boats.
There should be another linkage arm attached to the pivot arm.
Yes,I would try turning the out drive. You should be able to turn it by hand with medium force,by pushing one side of it.
It's possible that the...
Nice fish killing machine!
Pics or BS
Well,you don't have to worry about it in Oregon.
An LX is similar to a penn jigmaster size
Nice rig for sure!
Built like a tank.
Nice reel Hoss! A little more than I can spend.
Good luck with the sale.
I would replace the distributor with a Prestolite electronic distributor.
No more points,condenser,ballast resistor.
Your boat will be more...
I'll be out there friday/Saturday.
That cheep,15 for $20!
Wow,a great trip for sure!
I would love to hook Elvis.
Good luck,Lowrance seems to be the most resold unit around for some reason.
There's plenty on here for sale.
Nice boat for sure! That's a big upgrade from your Aquasport,lots more room.
It seems like when we get older,the creature comforts are more...
Take it off and take it to a parts store to match up. I would look for a Delco Remy (GM) wholesale store.
I can't think of any reason an...
I think it's the Bottom White Line that you have turned on.
The bait marks are so solid that the unit interprets as the bottom.
I'll take it. Sent you a pm
I've been looking at the Echomap chirp 94sv . It comes with the chirp transducer with side view for $1299.99
The difference is the Echomap 94sv...
Congrats on the whoppers!
Great report and pics,thanks!
I have corporal tunnel syndrome in both wrists,I need to buy one of these.
I had a TLD 15 do that and it bugged the hell out of me.
Send it in,I'm sure they can fix it.
That a nice one Marc!
I used to think I would have to go to Alaska to catch a Pacific halibut.
Looks like you got it dialed in pretty good.
I'm trying to get mine set up for local fishing.
It looks like the rest are going to break off.
I would just break them off and get new rotors or hubs.
You could just replace the studs,but I...
Is that a Chevy manual transmission?
Do you have a name for it yet? I named mine after my sister that passed a couple of years ago.
My buddy has one just like this. Nice boat and good on gas,good luck selling it.
2010 2wdTundra 5.7L 381hp,400lbs of torque,with tow package,rated to 10,400 lbs towing. Tows my 2320 Parker just fine,maintains speed on grades....
Nice! Are you getting the deep vee or the semi deep vee?
That small one is a fat 18" fish.
What material is that? It looks pretty good.
Same here,I couldn't do it because it just isn't the right thing to do.
Bet the problem with the reel is you over rinsed it. My Shimano's and...
Congrats on the new rig,I had one 25 years ago,enjoy.
Nice fish and great report!
He sold it a few months ago.
Great report and pics Nick,looking foreward to seeing the video.
Good luck,nice boat and bait tank.
Maybe the shift cable is out of adjustment. I would try this first.
Congrats on the sweet rig. Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz Islands have some awesome fishing if you like halibut,WSB,yt and rockfish.
Wow,very nice! Those flesh lights must work.
Bait or fish
A size 10vsx or 8vsx
Someone on here has a Simrad system with an extended warranty.
He said he's on his 7th head unit.(mostly all different reasons)
That's why I'm...
I have a 1979 24' open,can one be modified to fit?
Nice fish on your new boat!
Sweet,how much is fish dope? I've had Terrafin since it started.
Congrats on selling your rig.
The ones I have been on feel a little light in the front.
I'm also interested.i already have Terrafin and an IPad,it would be nice to have all the prior days to see the temp trends.(chlorophyll also) I've...
Thanks Rick,I sure don't need to get stressed over something I order.
Good luck to you and your buddy.
It could be the end of your engine. It's very Possible your rings are stuck on your Pistons,(carbon) and what happens is instead of the rings...
That's off the hook! You have a talent for sure.
What do you use to cut it out with?
I've done a v6 evenrude. The rod bearings are roller bearings without cages,make sure you don't loose any.
The rod caps and rod are the outer...
Is there any abnormal noise at 2,000 rpms?
I would check if you have power at the fuel pump while cranking. If you have power there,try tapping on the pump.If no power,check the fuel pump...
That was awesome! Great job on kicking Elvis's ass!
Don't know what brand of truck you have,but if you have a electrical convertor box it could have a bad diode.
A dead battery will not come back to life using a trickle/maintainer charger. You need the charge it at a higher amperage to get it to come...
what a bunch of BS for 10% off. Putting you at the back of the line? MFers. I'm looking for a Garmin chirp unit but I'll shop elsewhere.
I would take someone experienced with me the first 5-6 trips.
The boating safety class is a good start.
I have and caught bonito on them.
I have a sea view fish finder with the transducer,bracket,power cord and operating manual in good working order.
I'm willing to ship it also.
I think I saw you salmon trolling Monday. We caught two to 20lbs
I have a pair of Boggs that are the best boots that I have ever had. No more sore feet at the end of the day.
When I had Xtra Tuffs I couldn't...
Nice video and fish Nick. You need to buy the old man a new hat,haha.
I've been checking out the Garmin Echomap Chirp 94sv. Priced at $1299 with the chirp/side view transducer.
9" screen,includes coastal maps.
You might need a survey to get the loan.
Unforchantly,I think that engine is toast. You might bend a rod or damage the needle bearings hammering on the piston.
I would start looking for...
Did you have your rig weighed? That's pretty light,I take my boat and trailer to a truck stop and unhook it from the truck to get the true weight....
Most of that snake oil is expensive,I would try tightening the fittings.
I have one on my boat that I've only had for 7 months with 2200 hrs. Works fine although the inner prop was frozen on the shaft.
I've been told...
Sell that problem child to me. Haha.
Good thought,a voltage below 11.5 volts will cause the Ecm to shut down.
I have the same problem that just started today.
I would first check for moisture inside the distributor cap.(condensation)
That's a sweet boat.
That's a bad ass boat,I read all of the 44 page rebuild.
Read the post about the guy getting burned on his Lowrance rebate.
Thanks for posting it. This is why I like Garmin.
You should send them a link to your post,this is the worlds biggest fishing web site.
I have the same set up. I'm not sure what part broke,but I'm pretty sure you won't have to pull the engine. There's lots of Volvo 280's out...
What a POS! Thanks,I'll never buy a shimano rod.
They should have thought it out before rejecting your warranty.
Good thing you posted it,I...
Wow,that's one hell of a story.
Looking forward to seeing it on the show.
I hear the 228 Grady and the 2120 Parker are the same length on the trailer..
Maybe you need an 18'er.
I have a whole grill I'll let go for $60 with a rod holder mount. It's the round shaped model.
Did the lawyer cost more than the ticket?
What does it cost to enter?
I have an 18 gallon rectangular tank if your interested.
Nice boat. It looks to be a semi vee hull,should be good on gas.
Those were there cheapest ones they sold back in the 80's,I got one for $99 bucks.
They work very good,but the newer ones have a larger diameter...
I have fiberglass 12'ers on my skipjack.
The lines on the outriggers run just outside of the wake,in the clean water.
Trolling for albacore,they...
That came out real nice,I like the belly hoop.
Been voting all day,thanks for putting the link on the last page.
My buddy had a 25' deep vee and never had water come over the side.
Voted a few more times.
Where is it?
Voted. I wouldn't want my daughter around him.
Sent you a pm with a link to the listing. Look here,the boat and info is on the left.
I think Conor is going to have trouble with fighting 2 weight classes higher.
I hope he wins.
Bearings should be removed and inspected every year. If not,you should at least jack up the wheel and spin it. You will hear a growling noise if...
Are they 12 volt dc or 110 ac?
I think Pettis would have been a good fight.
Mine would do 35kts with the 150hp,plenty fast.
I bet you could get some decient money for your good running 250hp.
I had the same boat with a 150 OB. Nice riding boat and fast. The deck had a lot of room. Not a bad boat guys!
Sorry to hear. I lost my 13 year old chocolate lab Tucker this summer.
I have a 15 hp merc big foot that pushes my 24'er 6 kts.
Which model were you using?
Thanks for teaching them the law!
Your brakes applied but didn't release.
More than likely your wheel cylinders are frozen,brakes are trash.
You can remove the backing plates...
Agree that the axles shot. The surface where the seal rides/seals is shot.you have ground off the stainless steel seal surface on the axle.
Cheep price for a large running boat,should go fast.
Chance to take advantage of the El Niño .
Good price for a good boat.
I was looking for a Miami,it's hard to find a used one.
Pass the popcorn please.
Just mailed you 5.
Good luck fishing and pay it forward! (Like the movie)
I can send you a few.
Englund Marine in Eureka has the McMann clips. Maybe you can call and order them.
I have some,I could send you a few. Check your pm
Sad news for sure.
I've done it with a box cutter,works good!
I'll take the outriggers.
The captain should have gone with the "A" crew... Hope you feel better.
Nice one Tony!
I'll take it.
Check your "OBD" fuse.
Do you have pics of the parents?
Caught some small macs on the right side of the oil rig Friday.
Steering wheel puller.it works great on other stuff,pulleys etc. I have one and it's a great tool with a life time warranty from Snap-on. Glws
This is probably your problem that your experiencing
Look at page 6. Garmin 7600xsv.
They are high power chirp units that are awesome.
I have a Furuno unit but I want a Garmin chirp with side scan.
Derby has sharp eyes.
Your lug nuts are on backwards. The tapered end of the lug nut goes against the wheel.
The wheel lug hole has a matching...
Can you tell me something about the btg655tss. I cannot find any info on it.
The LRS has higher drag settings,for fishing heavier lines. 80+lb test lines.
Set the drag to 10 lbs at the strike setting.
Congrats on the win Curt!
You guys did very good.
I know of some guys getting fined $500 a person (4) on the same boat.
Thanks for the story and your very lucky to notice the lighted balloon.
7/0,8/0,9/0 and 10/0 octopus hooks
Does it look like lower unit oil or 2 stroke oil?
Lower unit oil is thicker (75-90w). Check the lower unit oil level and if it's full,more...
The chart gives you detailed bottom structure,depths,bottom composition identification (rocks,sand,mud,etc).
What are you looking for,I may have some that I'll give you.
I have some surface iron,I want to help you out.
Sent you a PM
Was it from the last post you looked at?
Codlett is a small rock cod.
If you hook up to a 120 lber,the odds of landing it isn't good.
Elvis in the house! Great catch of a life time.
I would also like to know what kind of hook and what size did you use.
That sucks that they took your fish. Thanks for the report.
There's some good advise already. Only other thing I would try is tapping on the bolt with a punch and hammer. Also impact air tools have a...
I didn't see that it is a converted gas engine,but was surprised that it's a 2 stroke Diesel engine.
I've used the on line ordering without a problem a few times.
First person with cash takes it.
I want an Andros 12 but with all the delays the Accurate Fury's lowered prices are starting to look good.
Two thumbs up!
What brand of detergent do you use?
Nice catch and report!
I try to not gaff halibut in the back,I aim for just behind the head near the belly.
Does it come with the trailer in the picture?
Salmon fishing is usually wide open out of Humbolt bay,not to mention the quality pacific halibut fishing.
Can you hook it up to a chirp or panoptix transducer?
Bummer for sure.I hope they find them.
Is the panoptix a chirp unit or does it use different technology?
How much are these units with the transducer?
Nice,awesome trip of a lifetime!
i have one.
Sent you a private message
If it has electronic shift solenoids (computer controlled) I wouldn't use the shift kit.
You could cause all kinds of check engine light "shift...
Awesome video for sure!
Post number #5 gets my vote! Weak idle=idle circuit in carbs restricted with dirt,corrosion.
The Fiberglass cracked and it was leaking. We went out 40 miles tuna fishing only to find out there was about 30 gallons of water in the bilge ....
I would check their hull warranty. My friend cracked his 19' ft. Wasn't covered.
The stringers ended about 3' from the front of the boat and...
No,I didn't get any of your bargains. Nice mako!
That's why you sold all your heavy tackle!
Heard of $500 per person tickets for the same violation in a different area.(morro Bay Area)
I have one that I put a Tiburon handle one.
What a difference in leverage.
He said he switched to a mooching trip.
I answered freeze his raw salmon first before eating it raw.
Freeze it first!
What's the price if you don't mind me asking?
No trailer needed for this one.just put it on top of your car (camero etc) and tie it down with a long extension cord.
Right on the money. Others offer price matching,but when I called them on it,they didn't include a newer hot lure.(halco Max 130)
Be sure to preorder yours soon!
Install the new box and be over it!
I got my halcos from Charkbait for 14.49 each... They now have Avets for sale again.
Good luck Tony!
Your a lucky dad!
I wonder if he even paid to get into the jackpot. What boat was it?
Go to pacific trailers on line. Located in chino.
I second getting the plastic lines. Non corrosive,no brainer.makes metal lines obsolete!...
You gave up your old honey hole.
Nice catch and great size blue fins!
This boat rides great and is very good on fuel.
Someone's going to get a gem for sure!
It all ready started! "El Niño"
Nice fish Marc!
Good article on cooking and eating bat rays. If someone wants to eat one it's ok with me.
I hope the Lions beating the Bears twice last year didn't have something to do with it.
I strongly agree with Rodless_Jim and NachoOne,I think buyers should be buying for their own personal use.
If they tacked on the price of some expensive marketing,you would be complaining that they are too expensive.
Too bad your offers are not good on-line.
I live too far away.
Drill and tap larger threads or order a new frame if they still make them.
Way to go guys,my hats off to you!
105 in Santa Maria today.
Detroit picks Sammy Watkins
About 4/8 months ago some posted of a trailer being broken into filled with Phenix rods,beware.
I dont fish for rock cod anymore.
All the ones I ever kept were loaded with worms."worm hotels"
I throw all of them back.
Don't build one for me! I've had my fingers pinched enough!
Nice fish and numbers for sure!
I would use EurekaMarc,Coastline charters. He has a report about 5 reports down. Check him out! Phone # 1-707-601-fish
Man up and reply to those trying to contact you.
Make good on your word.
The salmon season starts April 5th.
It should start off pretty good.

Nice report and great pictures. I hope we get a shot at the fish down here (Morro Bay).
Looks like the spreader bars are the ticket!
Nothing like catching tuna.
Those spreader bars must help..I just need the tuna to show up on the central coast.
I was looking for a 9.9hp kicker.
I think the 10hp would be too heavy,sorry.
They come fish scented.
A friend put a 140 up Suzuki on his 21 ft bayrunner. It's not too heavy and gets great mileage.
Fish all day on 6/12 gallons.
Nice fish and report Matt!
Thee Telstar and All Aboard are both good.
5% on the leak down test indicates good rings,valves.New engines have 5-7 % leakage.

Is it a first gen with no serial numbers?
I guess if the AR bearing fails,the only option is to throw the reel away.
Bummer,not what I would expect for a top of the line reel.
I love my 2010 Tundra 5.7 v8.....381 hp,with 6 speed auto rocks.
It tows my 24` skipjack great.
Good advice above but you better hope the Cobra has a salmon permit.Other wise you will have to release any salmon caught.
I third the Fuji HB guides.
Sent a PM.
$55 for the 400
Nice that it has some synchronizing rings!
I would pass.The manufactures warrantys are void on salvaged cars.
Also possible endless tire wear problems.
Very sad news.Its possible that they ran between a tug boat and towed vessel.The cable could have ripped the top of the boat off.
nice report and quality lizard fish.
I`ve caught lots of legal halibut on smaller lizard fish.
I have one of my 16vsx`s on a custom wrapped calstar 700h with the fuji HB guides.(7`ft rod)
The guides are awesome.
What does the 90/62 stand for?
I love pacific cod!
I love that every week that Matt Millen picks the Lions to loose they end up winning.
I wonder if they use his picks to get fired up.
Its been 12 years since the last time they made the playoffs thanks to Matt Millen.
Now the Chargers can get a new coach.
Sproles was a mistake and they also cut that WR Robinson and he got picked up by the Cowboys.
Restore the ROAR!
Toms boat is a very nice proven fish catcher.
I sent you a PM,check your messages.
I also owned a truck with a 22RE.They run great when properly tuned.
agarcia shot the video at Monterey Bay.
He posted in above #12 reply.
Thats a nice limit!
Nice sized fish.
