    Taps for the 'Ol Merc

    The casual smoke cloud in the cold morning is what I miss most from my old merc 250efi. I occasionally am fortunate enough to be at the ramp when someone else is smudging it with 2stroke goodness.

    In case anyone was wondering it was cold and slow out there this morning

    Got on the water just before sunrise. Skipped bait and headed out to point lloma. Windy and in the 40's. Im stupid like that. Wind and swell were right into each other and as cold as it was I made sure to be very careful to keep from getting wet on the way out. Usual spots were dead...

    Lobster-tip, targeting a small window with FULL MOON.

    I agree. I have observed a good crawl right before moon rise just after sunset/darkness on several different occasions. Once it's full light the crawl seemed to stop. Typically though any incoming tide at sunset produces a good crawl for the first two hours.

    .224 valkythingy is someones idea to make a ar15 capable long range cartridge. Case size was adjusted to make the cartridge magazine length so it will fit in a ar15 magazine well. This allows the cartridge to be magazine fed while utilizing the newer high ballistic coefficient .223 bullets...

    Supposedly the spikes used in the sections of rail road tracks that are bends or turns are higher carbon to cope with the stress of the turn in the tracks and make decent knives. I believe they are marked HC for high carbon.

    Secure gun storage now a law

    Demographics tend to give a better indicator of crime levels than gun laws. Several cities in the US account for the overall majority of gun violence as well. All of them ruled over by leftists. A FBI crime statistics report was released a few years ago that covered the demographic details.

    I spool up with straight braid to a 1/16 of a inch shy of the top of the spool. Leaves room for a decent leader and mistakes lol If you want to be cheap as your braid gets older you can remove it and put it back on old used braid first leaving the former bottom braid on top.

    Opinion of Sea Pro boats

    As mentioned... Worth buying if you can buy a outboard for it when the ficht dies. The outboard could explode tomorrow or last 10 years but everyone thinks they suck for a reason. Flip side is that if it's been running this long it's probably one of the good ones.

    Lingcod and rockfish migration

    They move around a lot down here. I have hundred of spots and it's fascinating to see a deep spot go from wide open to barren in the course of a few weeks only to find a formerly empty spot 80 feet more shallow and half a mile away loaded. Vermillion rockfish follow the red tuna crabs and will...

    4 March point lloma - I caught a rock thing

    They do make the fish less aggressive since they are stuffed with the crabs. You have to have really good bait, presentation, and timing in regards to the major bite/lunar feeding times. I've noticed that squid strips and fish strips don't work as well on the larger models like they used to...

    Question for reloaders

    Normal. it's where the casing expands to the chamber when fired and then extracted. Like cast gold said see if it's hard to extract. If not you now have fire formed brass. If your shooting a bolt action buy a neck resizing die and reload the easy way since you don't have to resize the whole...

    SD lobster report decent crawl 6 November 2016

    I've noticed a little bit of a "entitlement" mentality on the water. "I've hooped this spot for for years...they are on my spot" Maybe it's similar to the surfer gangs of trust fund dudes that slash people's tires for being on "their" beach?

    SD lobster report decent crawl 6 November 2016

    Yup. Kelp and current is big here. Started weighting my traps. Never did that in LA. Who knows what happened but the timing of the disappearances was interesting. I should have moved my hoops that got dropped on. Hard to keep a eye on them with other boat traffic so close. Oh well tis...

    Nice. I prefer standing while piloting a boat. Sitting is a great option but I usually only sit 5 minutes out of every 30 while moving the boat to a spot. I hate sitting while in bumpy conditions as well. Seems better to stand.

    Diesel fuel 3,000 gallons road legal

    Verbal commitment to buy 2k gallons has been accepted. Judging from the tank I might actually have 3.5k gallons total. Once the first 2k is gone I will look for a second person to sell the remainder to.

    I've gone stupid distances on my dusky 17. 120 mile days a few times. I only regret it the next day when I can barely get out of bed. The previous owner left marks on the GPS way the hell out there and even went out and around San Clemente and back. The current trend of shitty afternoon...

    Izors reef. Find structure in 98 foot or so of water. Incoming tide. They will bite any sort of chrome/chrome flake jig (colt sniper, ect). You can see them on the FF postured on top of the structure when they are ready to feed. Ive also had good luck on close in structure or near the...

    Phase Seperation in Fuel, or unluckest SOB on BDD?

    Don't keep fuel in the boat for long periods. Use it in the boat or pump it into your car. Buy a small fuel tank and fill it with non-ethanol gas. Use it while flushing the engine so the shitty ethanol gas is burned out and the fuel system is full of good stable non-ethanol gas. When you...
