Reels are sold. Thanks for the patience guys
I apologize for being inconsistent with getting back to those of you who have PM'd me.
The reels are still available, I would like to get rid of...
Make an offer
Thanks. Reels are solid for surface iron! I like the 4.9:1 gear ratio too.
Both reels have boat rash, 8/10 condition mechanically. One has 1/2 spool 65# spectra, the other has just under 1/2 of either 50# or 65#. I only...
What are the measurements?
Found a foamer on the way home from SCI. Lost a ~120# BFT after my rod broke after 3 hours. Dad pulled the hook on his, brother landed his on...
Boats are something I find myself thinking about every day. I'm always stoked to see rebuilds/renovations and how people can improve an old...
Still for sale. This link shows a possible solution to the transom issue. I know of one Chris Craft locally that was repaired using this product....
Bump. The four stroke still purrs perfectly and pushes the boat just fine!
$5400 new price
Bump. Nice little fall/winter project
Maui Jims' polarized glass lens. Very pricey, but you only have one set of eyes. You'll regret not getting them sooner.
These Chris Craft hulls have facilitated some very big dead bluefin locally the last few years! Very worthy of restoration. If I...
Transducer and Furuno unit sold.
Garmin still available -needs power cable.
[ATTACH] it says it interfaces to any 600watt or 1kw sounder
I have a new and never installed Airmar B164 with 10-pin connector for a Furuno unit. It's the 1kW thru- hull model w/ 20° tilt. Comes with gasket...
I’m no boat expert either. I don’t know the cost of doing the transom repair but I think if you did it yourself you could have this boat in good...
i know that spot!
It is the green triple axle one in the photos. Thanks
Disclaimer: I don’t have a ton of experience flying the kite but this is what I began to notice last year.
I found that a lever drag is better...
Is this off the market since your boat is for sale?
Dream set-up. Seriously.
Thank for the reply. Beam should be 8’. I’m not close to the boat right now but that sounds right.
The transom needs attention that’s for sure....
I’d rather do face to face transactions at this time, thanks for your interest
Bump. Will consider trades +\ - $ for the right reel (Tn 16, baitcaster, etc)
This was an impulse buy, don’t need it or fish it enough. Barely used. $200 firm

I should've known better than to click on this "holier than thou" thread.
I'd like the electric trailer dolly if it works
Yes albacore are fun, but why would you wish for those when there are 200lb bluefin roaming our waters? Make the most of what's available while...
Selling my dad's boat. We've had it for about 13 years, and put the...
Cut it into sections and freeze them, then use them for chum when making bait is tough on your next trip out.
I ran the boat both Wednesday and yesterday. We can get it up to 5600 RPM with a stainless 4 blade 14.5"x15" prop. The cupping on the prop is...
So today we ran the boat with new injectors and a 4 blade 15"x15" prop. It felt much smoother and seemed to get in plane quicker than it did with...
woops my math is always bad. i knew I should have triple checked it before i posted. I was thinking for every one degree it was 200 rpm
Wouldn't that be an ~800 RPM change?
19 - 15 = 4
4 x 200 = 800
I'm hoping to have a new prop and injectors by friday.
All the filters have been replaced with new ones, and new injectors are on the way. Thanks for the reply.
Thanks- I'm looking for a used 4-blade...
Hello all, recently purhcased a 2007 Defiance 220 EX with an '06 yamaha F150. The outboard has just under 500 hours. We can't get above 4600 RPM...
While I agree with you about releasing even the medium/bigger "egg layers", was it necessary to slide it on the deck and throw it in the air?...
Very different type of fishing this year. Frustrating sums it up best. I stopped counting (I told myself it was better that way, but it still...
What year is the original hull? I saw one like this on craigslist a while back- could have been this exact one. What are you asking for the old...
Pm'd about phenix
What size ball is that?
It looks like you repowered as well...?
Is that z50r still available?
In SD, drifting closer than ~500 feet will make lifeguards pretty nervous.
No going over five within 1000 feet either.
Might be one of the best reports this season. Great pictures!
one of my favorite surfers to watch
thanks for the report!
That boat looks awesome. More pics?
How much for the trollers?
Wow I'd love that, but I'm a full time student, I lifeguard in the summer, and I'm headed to Cal Maritime this fall. Good luck! Wish I found...
wow, my dreams look a lot like that.
looks sick but there's a wierd double-up on it...or is it just me?
I've never known anything else. Center console's are the shit... pure fishing machines.
Well put. There seems to be an abundance of ignorant thinking on this thread, and personally i wish I hadn't wasted my time reading it.
whats the line rating on # 6?
calstar custom 270-8'
what's the line rating on the rod and does it have a trigger?
do you have the clamp for it?
those dont look THAT small. nice work.
sweet! how big was the BFT?
surface, but i let it sink probably 75 feet. got slammed on the retrieve. my first iron yellow-stoked!
Left MB 4am, 1/2 scoop ok looking 'dines, headed S to 425. Just after grey we see lots of terns diving and fluttering, but no paddies or marks....
wow! that thing is sweet.
what up ean! damn dude that's a gnarly six day. how was i.v. with the noise ordinance? i heard it just wasnt the same this year...
let's meet up...
hey tailwalker, it's rex on the "fresh one". thanks again for helping us out yesterday, that was really cool. good looking out, karma will...
aw fuck my life. i gotta get out.
I bought a saltist 20 before this season; had it loaded w/ 15#. In retrospect I probably should have put backing on it. The reel is great and...
About a week ago my pops landed this bull from a paddy on the south edge of the 371. My question is about the chunk missing out of its back. When...
i think you're looking for "hanapa'a". but dont quote me on that.
We found a paddy four and a half miles west of mission bay last year that was holding two dodos. They had lockjaw though.
My thoughts as well. Less expensive gear= more gas money. More gas= more fishing time. Time on the water= more experience.... Just my .02
I've seen a couple of those over here in Hawaii... One was a pilot house though. I drive by it everyday on my way to work, and wonder what type of...
fuck that's funny.
c/o '06. what about the rest of you?
man this thread is a trip. i'm only 20 years old. the only thing i can think of is the rusty pelican, i caught my first green-water wave in front...
man that looks fun! the dirt is moist below but crispy on top; dirt biking's equivalent to fresh powder in my opinion. im jealous. i like that yz...
way to go, man. my bio is the exact opposite of yours. seeing that makes me want to go back and fish.
i know i speak for a few people when i say i want to be in your shoes.
1)pre-made pb/honey sammiches or 2)bucket of kfc or 3)cold leftover Fillipi's pizza
thats fucken rad. your son is stoked for sure, and lucky to be able to do that.
what i was thinking. went there in '05, on a panga w/ a couple friends. ended up with a bunch of yellowfin, jack crevalle, and some skipjack type...
more pics, more pics!
i think we trolled past each other there on the nine. there was more life towards the border and beyond. you'll get 'em next time.
While out surfing with Pops this morning in glassy, peaky waves, we decided to give it a go in the afternoon to see if we could get some YFT...
look at the part in the video @ one minute thirty through one forty.
that's what dreams are made of.
his name's lefty. i used to hate that guy when i worked down there at the docks. some people have no dignity.
sounds like fun, nice trip.
cool deal. sometimes yellows like the bigger macks offshore, too.
nice work, were you the ones w/ the parker at dana landing?
the ride was bumpy today, didnt make it to desired destination of the e. butterfly area. trolled around the 302 and 226 area. only a couple kelps...
cool, headed out wednesday. nice albies.
cool, at least you pulled on a nice yellow. i dont understand what you meant by the white seabass being under the wood bundle. any insight?
um, that YT looks fricken huge. or is the little man small? nice job.
i just spent like 10 minutes staring at the tailwalking pic! thats a badass shot.
sweet deal. wednesday wont come quick enough.
seeing those paddy pics makes me long to be offshore. good work!
sweet! how far out were you?
sweet, nice work. those are some fast lookin' boats in the background!
cool report. you'll get next time.
sweet. calico seem to love the halloween style swimbait. boardfishing is super fun, especially when you pull up something big!
had a late start, trolled the 182 and up and down the ridge for nada. saw very little paddies, or any cover for that matter. found birds working,...
sweet. i really dig those davis boats, pretty bitchin' looking. good job.
looks like an excellent day on the water. nice work. cant wait for thurs.!
albacore live in hawaiian waters? first time i ever seen or heard that. cool, and marlin! looks like a great time.
excellent! im headed out again on wednesday.
those things are fat! nice work.
cool. nice job on the release. its funny, they liked the cedar plug a lot yesterday. but that was at the 302.
whats up, we heard you guys got five on deck while we were running in. nice.
nice work! the excitement when you see the water breaking and tuna feeding is... unexplainable.
hank-yeah, the wind was up all morning, but it got worse later on. pics dont do it justice anyway.
unknown fisherman- that rod is a beast. i...
left mb @ 0430. halfway to the 302 the bait pump takes a shit. all bait is dead. 1/2 hour after trolling the high spot, around 0630 or 0700, jig...
cool. will be headed out tomorrow.
i just caught my first 'but from the shore the other day, too. so fun! good job.
you've got a sweet setup, nice boat. that yellow probably would have been over 30#'s if you weighed it right away...? great job and nice fish.
i like the dodo on his jeans. nice looking fish. good job
bummer about the shy bft, but the daughter looks stoked regardless.
cool. good to see you kept only what you wanted. awesome work. your son is stoked.
went out two years back, crew worked hard. fishing wasn't the best, but we got fish, nonetheless.
nice work. i like the swinging feather in the background of the second pic. you guys killed 'em!
i was thinking the same thing. got some the other day when the temp reading said 68. not what i expected.
whats up everybody, this is my first time posting a report. been lurking for awhile, but as i was away at school, i never had any reports or...
that wave's a mushburger.
that things badass. im jealous.
how do you guys fish those spinner bait thingies? they look like they work real well. do you tip'em with squid?
this shits kinda funny cuz we've all been there...some more recently than others. mine was a year or two back. good thing you didnt have any...
holy shit is right.
big ron what about the blue shirts?
