The things is a beast!
Hardly any weight in the rear, besides my fat ass.... just a trolling motor , no fuel.
Any suggestions on how to secure the platform in the front,...
She's my fave, she'll make that stripper look like an ass in front of 30 million people
I'm planning on making a larger casting platform in the front, like the other livingston on here, check out the seahawk tuff stuff for the bottom....
Nice job bud!
Isn't sanding fun??
I learned long sleeves are a must, and a resperator, rather than a dust mask..
Can't wait to see it all done.
Thanks for the instructional vids, always helpful.
I couldn't find the flaw.
I picked up a 10 foot hull in need of some love. There are a few leaks, and some previous poor fiberglass patches done by the prior owner.
The otolith is like tree rings, they tell the age and growth of fish..
We used to collect them from salmon carcasses for klamath salmon research....
That is one hell of a set up..
I like it.
I was picturing a small hand held, good thing you gave us a pic>
Can you show a pic of your torch?
Good deals for nice gear...
I was wondering if anyone uses a heat gun to remove air bubbles from finish, or should I just stick to my alcohol torch.
I recently was using my...
Just received my lexa as described
I'm pretty sure the slip clutch is an add on. I think around $75
How do you bust 'em out so fast?
I love bright colors, they always give "pop"
To the rod.
Good for just about anything up here in nor cal.
Live bait. ..it would even work well in a downrigger trolling for salmon. Good all...
Where were you 30 mins ago, before I ordered components and an rx6 mag bass rod.
would have saved me some time, lol.
Nice job! Way to get the kid out..
I think it's days like that with all our dads which peaked our intetest, and caused us to love fishing our...
That is a huge BSP!!!
You make it look so easy.
I always enjoy looking at your awesome builds..
My brother has done business trips with the new huckfinn, in emmeryville, he said they were a good charter.
They do live bait too for halibut and...
I've got a mhx pro elite '6"9, 8-15 lbs. With winn grips.
paired with a new lexa 300wn. It's going to be used primarily for freshwater
Ended up getting the Lexa 300wn. Hard choice between Lexa and Curado,
I hope I'm stoked.
I was looking into picking up my first baitcasting reel, primarily for bass fishing.
I would like to be below $250. I'll be using this as an all...
I do have my 16 klamath insured. Figured it can't be a bad thing.....at least I'm covered.
For the cost, It's minimal compared to everything else...
Icy!! Nice build
I have had 4 pairs of these i love em, it's all I wear everyday
They work great for golfing too
Looks super fun!
I'd love to check it all out.....if only I won the lotto.....
that's why cali is mandating boating safety for recreational captains, it all seems like common sense, but unfortunately not for all.
Muchos colores, I love it!! All of that color transitions great, so clean as usual...
Lahaina, un less you want more off the beaten path to hana, pretty much just a launch ramp. it's beautiful, just less ammenities
Piece of pvc, is what all my blanks come in, foam on both ends and a lot of tape....
Isn't that start me up spotfishing??
Thought I saw that in oct.
Next time I'll have to get out.
I want to go back!!!!
It's a great boat for the tuna runs and sporty days!! Great platform! Sometimes it's just easier to take out the klamath, less cleaning on those...
Cool boat, looks sweet.
I sure do miss humboldt! Go lumberjacks!!!
Glws, wish I needed another rig!
I like getbitoutdoors.com and acidrod.com They are always super nice on the phone, get bit is pretty quick on delivery too.
I don't have any brick...
Love that platform, needs a yamaha hanging off the back!!!!
I was living it through your description. So cool, I hope to have one of those days, once in my life......
With all the positive responses to the blanks, I guess I should give them a try. Build one for myself first.
I just haven't pulled on one them,...
How do you make it look so clean??
Awesome as usual
I would stick with batson, for the price and quality,
Although I haven't fished on a mhx blank or built one.
I'm totally satisfied with alps and...
looks great, nice and clean. love that blank, my go to!!!
Saw this one in the San Francisco marina,
Sound it out.........
Oh.. and my bros old boat,
Batson rclb 700 xl
Avet sx g2,
They'll be fine!!!
They're parkers, a little gelcoat, no problem
That's a nice parker in the background.lol
Nice job out there. Guys look stoked!
We ran sunday as well, we also boxed the same zone all day. So nice out there. We were in shorts and...
Epic marc! Nice job on the bft
Like you said the good ol days, been 3 years since I caught a longfin.
Bragg was great sunday 30 tuna and a haul of...
Looks like the people in the video still know how to.keep their sense of humor......
Make the best of it...
Summer has been great!
Nothing like driving only 6 minutes from my house and catching bass on the regular..
My local resivoir has a great...
seems way low, should be gone quick like.....
Check out the kysek, costco business center, it's different than the main costco page
I paid 369, heavy duty , but comes with wheels
Nice boots, I love those new xtratuff.
light and cool!
Ha. So funny, the Rodman is back. Nothing but trtrouble with that troll. I think he's been kicked off so many times, just report him......
Everywhere has its bullshit. Trust me I know. My truck was stolen in fields landing just south of eureka. But the seven years I spent in the area...
I got the 65 qt. tan and the 30 softpak, both are great, no issues, for the price they work well.
good deal, GLWS.
tuna not included
what a steal. I got one a few years back and love the light weight.
where in nor cal are you? Bay area? Ill ask a friend if he still needs one, Good price.
make sure its actually wahoo. I've been to a few places that say they have wahoo, upon further inspection the suspect fish ended being escolar, if...
great show. looked fun
I used to be an, "I only smoke while on the boat", kind of guy. I'm glad I don't anymore and congratulate anyone who quits.
now...., drinking is...
get the mxl raptor, great drag and has more cap. than the sx. The new dorado skin looks bad ass. a 500 $ reel, but it would serve many purposes.
On the small side, about 25lbs but ill take it.
That shit was cool, I thought it was a helicopter with it's spotlight at first.
I figured the world was ending, I caught my first Bluefin today in...
Awesome boat, clean slate with no bait tank. Out of curiosity how does the boat run with that 200, it seems a little underpowered. MPG, at what...
what happened to the stripping pumpkin, I wanted to show my wife, Darn.
Guys, something needs to give in the so cal pages, they are starting to look a lot like the Washington forum.
good luck with the recovery.
good for you, I'm waiting for someone to hook a ono up here.
Shitty, one of our guys. I met him once. You just never know when, prayers for his family. I hope he's hooked up right now, like old man and the sea.
I' just had my first deleted post here on bd too. smells fishy
It's eureka, not yreka. Unless your fishing the elusive I 5 halibut season. And there is a pretty darn good fishery up that way. Geez the...
damn, nice fish, I can't believe how many hoos have been caught this season.
I have found that if you are using jalapenos and onions ect. if you want a lot of flavor use more of the ingredients than you think. When the...
Wow, isn't that a stripey, lol
That's exactly what both guys said. they didn't jump out of the boat, they were blown out of it. crazy.
My friends video is from their boat before...
MY BUD HAD BOTH IN THE BOAT. I was thinking it might get hushed as well
My buddy saved him, but go google it the internet is never wrong. I GOT THE VIDEO, WHY WOULD I LIE.
My buddies just rescued two DFG officer out of Santa Cruz.
DFG boat was checking licenses next to them and the next thing that happens is a large...
sorry to hear that Jon. I hope you guys just remember the good times.
Yeah this website is way less gay, all we talk about is handling our rods and how stiff the tip is of my friends rod compared to mine. Jk
well, I hope the bite picks up I'm heading down to fish fri and sat. A few days can make a huge deal.
they sure do work though. Got my first tuna on the jig using the chartreuse and white.
I was using a 1/0 over the weekend. The smaller hook was working well for us.
I bet mom didn't like that he brought down that nice clean white sweatshirt
Funny hearing you call us out down there on 72, we weren't expecting to hear from anyone we know. Glad you guys got 'em too. We're thinking...
Thanks to BD we had a great weekend chunkin'
I read a lot about the technique and drift, along with the patience needed. slow the boat down, look...
I just bought that same rod yesterday, for the same reason. Heading down to san Diego, today. I hope I like it. I know this is no help to you, but...
I'm headed down to Oside next week, where abouts did you get the macks?
We use a similar unit to check break temps on road trips while towing the boat. It can be a good indicator of a bearing malfunction.
That's one of the best motors ever made, now that a selling point, a motor older than the boat.
People are just ridiculous.
No, not the guy who kept the marlin, read between the lines.
Where you located, humboldt/Mendocino
nice boat. Good luck rigging her up
Just get a motor home, split the cost 4 ways and cancel what ever lodging accommodations you've made. Motor homes are almost as expensive as the...
we already get looks washing the boat and rinsing motors. people without boats don't understand the importance of keeping it clean.
BTW the filet...
good stuff, great report, you're making me jealous.
you gotsta do what you gotsta do, sorry about your sick kid.
so f'ing cool, so glad you got the video, eternally on the internet
that's pretty cool.
Damn good fishing right there,
That's seems to be the direction we're headers, in santa cruz they are 2 bucks for 5 minutes. It started at 3 bucks for 5 bur no one used them....
Show off! that was f'ing cool
Damn marc you're on fire. Congrats on the opah
LAME first post.
I bet a lot of anglers ate some great fish and had plenty to share with friends and family.
Go back to the peta webpage.
maybe this is worth the plane ticket out there.
My brother and I rigged a 30 gallon Rubbermaid container with a pump and a plug for a cigarette lighter for our 16 ft Klamath, that we are...
good choice on Shelter Is. bring home some BFT YFT YT and maybe a dodod, good luck
Are those the same numbers you worked the day before? or were...
Marc, we were hoping you were going to kill it today.
Glad you found them.
Not sure if we'll tow our own up, or try to get out with you.
Damn bill, we should have ran down south with you. Good job, glad you got some fishies.
we need to plan another trip
good shit mark. maybe we'll have to run north. Kevin, Tom, Dave and I need tuna Bad!!
We left HMB at 4:30 with high hopes of getting the monkey off our backs. After lasts years disappointing now show of the albacore off our coast,...
I went out looking for Bluefin out at the Cortez this season on the tribute, no fish but great trip. Nice boat, good Capt. and good food. I would...
sounds boring, I would like to get enough for me and my family, that can't always get out. We've always said "the tribe would have gotten rid of...
nice work, I wish we had better action up here in Santa Cruz .]
we saw plenty of Bluefin on my weekend trip to the cortez, on the tribute, the problem was getting close enough, they would drop out every time we...
My handle was red rooster, those were the good 'ol days. some truckers would get str8 pissed. Now that Ive grown a little, I cant stand the b.s....
personally I like to anal hook'em
it's a minnow
nice first video
good for you. nice fish
Damn!!!!!! I'm on my way fri. something tells me I better buy a bigger reel.
so if you get enough trophy points you get to choose which of the fishin' chicks you want to take out on your next fishing trip.
It's pretty simple.
what size weights? 4 -12 ounces? I plan on using my SX MXL talica 12ii and a raptor mxj will those cover me? the rods are are set
I was hoping to head down from Santa Cruz and get on the tribute for a 1.5 day trip, leaving Fri night. I was hoping for some input on the boat....
nice bill, I was just wondering how you were doing and blam !!! there you are catching nice fish, hit us up next time you're in town.
knew it would go fast, we didn't even get a chance to look at it.
good for you, and the new owner.
I love at the end as she's swallowing water screaming, you'd almost think she was in danger
Jon, when I look at that pattern I see "tuna tails", it's bitchen.
nice video, but my wife would never let me do that in the kitchen
well, bill I went 110 miles one way last year for nada, but I think this year we'll wait for the water to turn on the inside.
nice write up, good luck with the salmon opener. we still aren't sure if we are joining the chaos on Saturday, maybe the weather will keep the...
what a catch
bitchen from start to finish. and I loved the music
still no answers on why the hull was upgraded. Boat is awesome just wondering why the upgraded fiberglass.
I heard this one before, this is the joke with the priest and the rabbi, right.
you can't go wrong with the olive and black woolybuggers and small cork popper in mouse pattern.
better be careful driving on the wrong side of the road like that
you can't go wrong with jon.
good shit rat, nice interview
that is way cool. I just had to speed it up a bit.
well done, your wife handled that fish.
sweet, I love it. Good Job.
we've always said if we repowered our 2320 it would be with a 300 hp. I hope that helps.
nice tribute. I'm sure he's hooked up, & looking down right now
I clean cosmoline off the bottom of BMWs and Mercedes, we have boiler generated steam at 100 psi. it's tough shit
In Siskiyou county, I lived on the Cal Salmon river (marble mountains wilderness, Trinity wilderness, and the Russian wilderness), and there were...
always awesome Sami, I look forward to seeing your reports. Thanks
Anything Steely Dan. That shit is kinky and super fishy
Jon, that is my favorite one I've seen recently. the colors are an awesome match, and that tiger looks alive. GW
cool trip, and good report. definitely a different style fishing than what we do on the west coast. tight lines.
cool stuff, "eye of the tiger is......"
wow! Is it me or did he look Mexican.
epic, nothing like the sound and feel of a wave spitting behind you, truly epic.
ling dong, ling dong.
sweet boat. I don't know if the 225 is enough power that size parker. we have a 2320 with a 250 and it could even use a little extra power...
we did alright for our first trip down south. It's definitely a different game down there. We ended with 5 mahi 1 yft and 2 rat yellows. it was an...
when fishing is good for albies you don't even need the meat lines. when 6 rods go off at once you'll be glad you don't have them out, just too...
go get um bill.
Now we have no need for the Beiber!!!!......Andrew
bill, where are you guys headed? I haven't heard of much.
as usual, Amazing, keep 'em coming Sami.
I hope you read my recent ( a couple months ago) replies to him about the same thing, rodman 28 or taking drag. this guy is a wack job, and a...
that's some funny shit, taking drag and myself haven't seen eye to eye more than once, truly some classic shit, maybe you should put all his other...
my reply was more of a joke about that being his way to make an income, but he always has few of those around to be fixed.
My rod builder buddy said those guides are what keep him in business between builds, he said it doesn't take much corrosion to get to those...
I'm rescheduling our honeymoon right now. We figured it might still be f'ed up even a month from now. looks like we are heading to P.V.
I'm not that far north. Santa Cruz, but we got passed up by the albies this year, we are experiencing odd marine conditions ourselves this...
interesting year we are having for sure, just when you think you got things figured out, you get thrown for a loop.
freeze it first for 24 hrs. I worked in a sushi joint in cali for 2.5 years rolling, and all sushi served raw in cali is previously frozen, by...
sweet, on my way home, next question is are you going to sell beer? That would be the ultimate kicker for my return business, LOL
Jon are you going to be selling power rod wrappers? when are you going to open your brick and mortar shop? looking forward to stopping in.
we should have "GFBOTD". I'll start it off, I'll get a picture of someones elses' GF and post up some hot pics.
wtg. that's one the grand kids will remember.
sweet. that rocks. Nothing like fishing with the fam, truly incredible.
cool. I just saw this video on T.V. "right this minute".
You are famous. go collect your millions.
I have 50 gallon white heavy duty plastic drums. I can steam clean one out for ya. it'll be enough capacity. we recently built one for...

Here is a report. Left S.C. at 8 pm Thursday, no fish in sight, so we pointed the boat toward S.D. 300 miles later
we found some dodo's, yellows,...
Raiders, who's with me.
I'll take it.
alright boys, you should only feel a little pinch.
I'll have to look around, but I might have some extra reels sitting around. If I find something of good quality I'll send it your way. PM your...
thanks for the heads up ????? it's greatly appreciated, we got a hotel in shelter Island, It's obvious i don't get down there much.
I'm heading down next Friday morning from Santa Cruz heading to Mission Bay with our 2320 Parker. With the lack of tuna our way we figured better...
Good choice......, put up some pics of your first smoke. I love doing turkey breast for lunch all week. Enjoy
Karl we are heading out tomorrow HMB 3:00 am. Hopefully I'll have some good news for Ya.

we are probably launching from HMB around 4 on sunday, it's a solid 100 mile trek. Pm me if you are heading up.
daaaaamnnnn. I didn't think anyone actually used those motors.
I've seen them for around 15k-20k (depending on age) with four strokes, but you've just always have to have your eyes open and ready to move....
was looking into a similar upgrade, I liked the Triumph 210 looks like a lot packed into a smaller boat, two bait tanks, fish holds and with a...
damn Jon, that is slick.
God Bless America!
it happened. with pics. if you are into 100+ miles. today would have been a good weather window.
thanks for the info. I'm at the one in the corridor, how far is that from the Gordo banks pangas?
The first time I met my future wife I was...
what are you trying to tell me. LoL. did I mention spa day.
was it creamy or chuncky?
thanks, the wifey will be getting her spa treatment the days I'm fishing, so just me, unless I can find another to split the trip. I like your...
I was planning on heading down to Puerta Vallarta, but plans have changed. we've now booked our trip at secrets resort in Los Cabos for October...

Thanks Todd, we were planning on running tomorrow, but we'll probably wait, and save some gas. Thanks for the awesome fresh dead squid, hopefully...
the world is full of opportunists that prey on the honest people. hopefully you get the boat back and Karma bites who did it in the ass.
wish there was a pic, but I know how hard it is to have the camera ready when the chaos ensues.
do you work at a liquor store and play the customer's losers? hopefully it pays off for ya
Alex, Mark, or who ever you want to be today. Good day to you,
I like the ignore button, because poof, you just disappear.
we run a 250, it's enough power and the fuel consumption is around 1.7-2.2 we can get about 3 if we only run 18 mph miles per cruising, but we...
the OP asked in an open thread which boat, if he wanted just your opinion why didn't he just pm you and omit the thread. why would you keep...
Alex, you have quite an opinion on what boats he shouldn't go on (any '23 charter), yet you haven't suggested one charter for the fella, why...
Jon I completely agree,
people asks question than act ungrateful when people try to help them out.
Jon, see you on the outside
wow! I have every intention of running a 23 footer off shore. we run a '23 parker up to 80 miles. I like the fact I'm not sniffing diesel all day,...

Bill we're right there with you. A little twisting of a few arms and......
we are going for flatties in the morning on the little boat, Call me soon.
your post says Sunday the 26th, I think you mean the 27th, that may help a little.
He must have kept tight lips 'cause that's the first I've heard of that.
congrats to him, was that out by the guide- pioneer area?
Which boats do you know of that didn't do too bad?
The boats I know that ran last week didn't find anything. My brother was on one of the boats,...
I'm thinking the 451 area looks a little more fishy.

Old man and the sea type shit right there

wow what a deal I'd rather fish a custom stick any day, at least on the boat you know what rod is yours.
Good for ya, Nothing like catching large reds.
sounds like a contradiction
damn Jon, that one came out slick. Amazing work.
try the rod building forum, there are some great repair guys there.
Damn it's like the show finding Bigfoot. A lot of sightings but no pictures supporting the evidence
Gilled and Gutted, and bled out.
BTW my bachelor party is on sept. 26th, two days of debauchery on a house boat in the delta.
cool shit, I probably still couldn't catch one!! Arghh
Not so much that year model, problems were mostly 2001-2004
stick to your e-techs.
I always like the 7.3 L Ford usually found around 15K+, spend some money servicing trans and bullet proofing, and you can have it for 500,000...
when my buddies went a few months ago, the ramp was closed bcs low water. are you fishing from shore or boat.
I'll have to pick one up, I got the 8000 battle, ready for the season, if it ever begins, we are dying up here. Now I just need to choose a rod.
what size would you recommend for jigging albies?
congrats! I hope we still get an awesome freebie with our orders lol. Best of luck and we appreciate your amazing service.
Nice job. You got to love Humboldt. I think you meant Arcata (not arcadia), Trinidad is a drinking community with a fishing problem.
nice!! can't wait down here.
God Bless America!!!!!!
Truly a wonderful country.
error. you are 401! I'll sell you my spot for a 10 hp anchor.
Vance I thought you were going to ship it down the cali? wtf.
uh oh, is it time? I hope they get here soon.
The shakes are getting bad, from the withdrawls.
"on a sport I despise", thank goodness that wasn't my grandma.
awesome pics thanks for sharing
nice captain jack, way to get up to my ol' stompin' grounds, I heard the salmon were going off up there. What beautiful country up that way,...
looks familiar, LOL. great build, it looks like glass.
Thanks for the report. you should have saved some of that bait for dinner. Nothing like fresh squirts.
the pac bay price point is nice, wondering if the alps wrapper with the upgraded chuck is that much better.
I recently saw first hand how much quicker a power wrapper gets those tedious jobs done, now I'm in the market for my own. first: which wrapper is...
ouch!!! I hope they got good insurance.
I went through the same BS when buying my new tacoma 4x4. A used one was selling for $28k with over 50k miles or buy a new one for $35K. there...
sweet report, wtg on the pb's. those are the days that keep us dreaming of the next monster.
cool shit, I don't have any tats, but if I did It would look something like those
How did it taste?
cool shit right there, I would love to have a reel done like that. sweet job sir.
good reel for a fair price, next in line if not taken.
good stuff, thanks for helping out, I myself have some components that just didn't fit right. this should save someone time and money in the future.
always amazing!!! I hope to visit just one of the places you travel to. Life is good
located in San Diego?
Thanks scold for the help, I guess it's me not trusting myself unless someone says it the right way. I'll try adjusting the guides 7 of them and...

wow!!!!! way to take it like a champ. I hope you heal well and are out catching again soon.
WTH truly a fish of a lifetime, congrats.
nice boat, that would pair well with our 2320. we are looking for something just like this. I'll have to get rid of my Klamath first.
can't wait, geez April went by so fast,
My bro and I have taken Thursday off to do a little fishing, but like Rat said no barbed hooks if you go...
nice report, I also like the boat, I'm in the market for the same rig, is that a 210 triumph fisher?

there is incentive for a customer to spend more $$ on a unit that...
we have canned over a 1000 retort bags with our vp215 with very few failures during pressure cooking, failures occured by cooling too quickly. we...
I'll take the sx, if you'll ship to Santa Cruz. Pm sent
I checked them out yesterday, they look pretty obsolete for storing your catch, but look great for keeping beer and food cold for a few days. they...
Bucci sunglasses, are the best for the price, IMO, you can always get them for 20% off at outdoor world if you mention the discount. or black...
I love the waffle house,
I think the one with the ham steaks down her pants was my waitress the last time I was there
wtg, I got the day off tomorrow and can't wait to taste some pink meat for dinner.
WTF, that snook is huge!!!! congrats on your personal best, what a fish of a lifetime.
I love the GX8 what a sweet rod, worth the money. Like other have said, you can target just about anything with that rod in nor cal, we have 'em...
well, salmon season opens next weekend, call Capt. Tom of Hooked up sport fishing, he's a good guy and will get you on the fish where ever they...
damn! that was a nice tow rig too. Dumb bitch should have just pulled over though, I hate slow drivers.
I like using a calstar GX 8 with either a Avet SX or MXL.
Who is heading out opening weekend? and where?
we are thinking of taking the Sat....
great video, it gets me ready. there are only 18 days left before the salmon season opens.
I think he's referring to the black bass that are more like rock fish,they swim in schools usually in the mid water column and are pretty good...
do you think my carry-on will fit in the overhead compartment?
I actually recently bought a reel from the seller mentioned. I haven't used it yet but I look forward to it. the reason he was selling was because...
I also checked that boat out on cl, I've never heard much about them either, but it looks like it was well taken care of, good luck on the purchase.
congrats, from a Humboldt state graduate, to another. Did you get it by the hatchery? That thing looks like it has seen better days.
I sure do...
what a hook set. I'm sure the hook set itself perfect.
no need to wish harm on someone, we can disagree and move on but to hope someone drowns, takes it a little too far.
Mind you the chrome was 50 years old, so it was probably well done, but no it did not effect the chrome in a negative way other than removing the...
I've used a product called naval jelly before, it's a pink jelly. I restored some chrome handle bars on a double seater, sears bike, years ago....
Guy: "babe, I'm going to the bar because women show their tits and asses".
Wife: "well you better hurry up 'cause you ain't getting none of that...
steelhead for sure, that's sad to see, hopefully this rain gets those fish moving. I live by the San Lorenzo river which they shut down fishing...
I'm looking to upgrade our small boat, and that is just about right. I saw this on c-list last week. Nice hull. If it's still around in six months...
I love using the biggest sand dab you got. The bigger the bait the ....... the large bait weeds out the smaller fish.
what year are those e-techs that you guys have, I'm in the market for another used boat, and a few hulls I like are running e-techs.
Mom had surgery almost a year ago, but it came back, so today was her dose day of chemo, did I mention today is the year anniversary my uncle was...
that's not a bad deal for a new rig. GLWS
sick van! and the 7.3l is a beast. that looks like the ultimate Baja rig. Good luck with the sale
I worked in a sushi rest. for a couple years and I used global knives, they worked great for their years in service. The sashimi knife I used was...
Absolutely amazing, when opportunity came knocking you took advantage, way to slay those nice reds, and on the fly.
Can't wait for the video.
I was living in Humboldt when all that happened on the Klamath, It was amazingly sad, the same day pictures were taken of thousands of dead salmon...
sweet, I was wishing I was one of the boats outside the line-up, but I was at work instead. At least one of us had a good time.
we love ours, it's a solid boat that rides nice, especially 80 miles offshore. We got the 2320 and the fishing deck is great. this boat is a tank,...
I can't answer your question, but can offer some advice. Get yourself an outdoor burner that attaches to a propane tank, usually under a $100,...
Nice Rodman 28 what a scientific answer you provide on how to tell the difference between male and female lingcod.
No, you don't have to resort...
Nice Haul Rat, I hope you only kept the males. J/K
Rodman 28. Please tell us again how you love to gaff all your salmon, and how great your boat is, please. If only I could call you before I make...
Keep your opinion to yourself, this is a fishing forum.
Some people need a soap box to preach on.
I was thinking the same thing about the salmon being a small king, but the forked tail was throwing me off. It did have packing peanut shaped...
Crazy!!! I find it amazing that they put the life of an animal in higher regard than people. Hunters know the dangers of persuing game, that's is...
Damn. that looks painful, I pray for a speedy recovery, and I it's usually only hard for a few days to kick the meds, as you know. good luck
Rat is correct, there was about two pounds of eggs in her, wish she let them float before I got her.
Rat, we never made it up to Franklin, we stayed local, we only made it up to davenport area, most fish came from 3 mile- 4 mile.
The trip was long awaited. We hadn't gotten on our big boat in over a month. Since the end of tuna season, my brother and I haven't had a lot of...
the Bubba blade had no problem killing this big foot.
absolutely amazing, those rods pop. Someone is going to be stoked, I hope they get fished hard.
I'll have what he's having, & the bar is always open at my house.
Yep I saw your post on tunabite, good for you, you're making my bro and I consider running, December tuna, Hell ya.
try fishing Paulina and East lake out in that area, I think it's the Newberry Crater lakes, great brown trout fishing, and kokenee. I love it up...
good stuff, we were thinking of rock codding on Monday after tuna fishing if we still have live bait, is it hard to get away from the mlpa.
you son of a bitch. we ran to bodega so we could get our brother on the water for his first trip of the year. we knew it would go off down here....
fish on charters with capt. tom
good guy and he p;ugs the boat
we'll be towing up as well, a lot closer than Santa Cruz, <just a 3 hour drive towing> may be the last trip of the season
absolutely stunning, what craftsmanship.
It looks like a king fish, if so lings love 'em.
Cool, Peter Miller seems to be a fun guy to fish with, I've always wanted to get a chance to fish Florida with that guy, and trade him a trip here...
wow, I love it the silver and bronze are great color combos, that rod looks fishy.
yep those octos were everywhere. we caught a few and used them for lings.
I had beer battered rock fish tacos last night (delicious). rock...
damn that looks sweet, too bad he has to wait till Christmas to use it. He'll love it.
good work. Bodega ended up being good? damn! that's an easy boat ride at 26 miles. too bad weather looks shitty this week.
I read somewhere else it was a no show.
Since my first post I've had a while to think about this motor. how much would you charge to break it down and ship it in pieces to California,...
soo cool, what a dream. awesome to see such a big fish swim so gracefully by and disappear.
Good choice, on location, water seems to be pushing out quick from HMB and S.C. hasn't been scouted yet to know if fish are even there. You'll be...
you'd better be right bill, we'll have to do a fly by, if you're still going. have a good trip.
what motor(s) are you running? with a 150 gallon tanks you've got quite a range. I think they meant 30 miles further than last weeks numbers,...
great write up, sounds like fun, and WTG on the C&R
Strap a rainbow flag on me and some assless leather chaps because I'm flaming.
Great video, I watched the whole thing, reminds me of my niece.
I wouldn't search for tuna out of Santa Cruz yet, the chloro shots aren't favorable, it's looks pretty green. There is definately more blue water...
When are we getting out again? Now we need to catch some Fall tuna, since Summer tuna are over.
Nice grade bruisers.
"Jut keep backing it down, when the rear tires hit the water jump in the boat and put it in reverse, it should come right off."
great job, from albies to yft in a week, that is great. You sir are making a lot of people jealous.
I like it, just in time. the best team rod I've seen yet. great job as usual
Not for heavy use? I have done well over 2 thousand lbs. sealed and at least 300-400 retort bags and no problems, we even bought a few seal bars...
Nice work wombat, that looks like a tasty haul, I need to get back up for another ab session. Looks like a good memory with your boy, those are...
Awesome report, glad you had a great trip
Sharing is how a lot of us do it up here, there isn't a huge fleet so helping people with general area...
we're from S.C. but decided to tow to HMB, we launched for our first time there, it's a little diff. but was a cool experience somewhere new....
Yeah hurting for sure. Yesterday was rough out there, I'm just glad we had a pilot house. I heard chili pepper might have had the coast guard do a...
"you need to use both hands."
Sweet! Is that abalone veneer under the guides? looks great, for some reason I really like purple rods.
salmon have many different feeding habits. some years the fish are down 300 feet hugging the bottom, that's a bitch with a down rigger, and not...
There is a 25 radon, bad ass boat, in the harbor with a seize sticker on it because of past payments for slip not payed. Call the santa cruz...
Yes they come in every year. DFW raises fish in the harbor and releases them, three-four years later they come back. It is quite a spectacle to...
He's talking about the tuna tourney going on right now, check out tuanbite.com a lot of northern cali guys on there, tourney ends in a few weeks (...
We hadn't gotten a cedar plug fish either, 90% of the fish came on the short lines (not meatlines), zucchini were the ticket, this weekend, and...
loved it. Best day tuna fishing yet. Dave I think we need a bigger Ice chest, lol
Bill, I wish you guys luck on the trip this weekend, trade me...
what a bad break, (pun intended) I hope you'll be able to pull on some fish, you still got a few weeks.
parker, love ours, it's a fish killer
Nice work. way to put out the effort, you got rewarded.
looks like the 601 or guide has become the best bet, or some water west of the weather buoy. water got mixed up and left the 451, there goes the...
My brother and I partnered up and got the vacmaster 215 and it does retort bags great, we just finished processing 120 bags of 8 ounce portions,...
We ended with 12 Karl, but hooked close to 20. we had some tangles and pulled hooks, with a few short strikes. It was still enough fish for the...
nice, Dave that was a blast nothing like fishing with just my brother, and a school of biting tuna.
30 fish is over rated anyway, LOL. You got enough until the next time you get out, nothing wrong with that, looks like Todd from...
bill we are on it, if the weather holds, but it might be a day during the week. Are you able to get a day off, they aren't that far out we can be...
yep we were there, we were on the inside 20/28 and left them biting with 12, we had great multiples and the fish were bruisers, hard fight...
I hope we get on 'em like that, nothing like a Friday off tuna fishing, I've waited all year for this shit.
What do you mean there are no rock fishing charters in Monterey bay? The Velocity and othesr still charter for rock fish on a regular basis \ I...
I guess we know what takes priority on his list,..... tuna fishing. love it. Seems like the fishing fee goes up for me if I'm tuna fishing,...
well there are some good numbers coming in, now at the 451 +30 fish for some boats including a 9 way with all landed, there were fish there Karl,...
Good stuff, we were out there with ya, we only scrounged 2, did you guys have chum? we wished we had brought some to get them to rise.
we leave our Raymarine c80 off while starting the motor, too much power surge, we don't want to blow out the unit.
let me tell you about this wet dream I had last night.
You're probably right on the fish down deep. we kept marking fish 80-100 feet down, we saw a lot of bait but no takers, the water was mixed up...
It was a long day, I was up again a 6 and felt like I was hit by a truck, man I love tuna fishing.
At least we heard the reels scream.
We're going Sunday, I'll let ya'll know how we did.
I'm hoping to hear screaming reels again.
I probably won't sleep much tonight.
Love them, very fast, you do need to adjust breaks every once in a while to keep them going down quick. Funny you mention the loss of balls, we...
freeze it, It's better to be safe than sorry. Like Jon said sushi rest. require freezing before serving for good reason.
Ive had the seamstress sow mine twice already, but it's still going strong. don't put six salmon and ice in it, I don't think it was designed for...
I would like to know if anyone has a used leaning post they would like to get rid of. I need it for a '16 Klamath. I'm looking for something on...
I don't know about the best year for some time, even last year was better than this year. It definately wasn't the banner predidcted. There have...
way to go Karl. It seems you've nailed them lately. we got ourselves some nice fish over the weekend, it was pretty hot down here in S.C. the fish...
nice fish, what a catch from a tube. that must have been fun.
I hope the rod is better at catching fish than the team is at winning games.
It looks sweet, and clean as usual.
Damn girl, she's welcome on my boat anytime. but here in Cali ALL deckhands wear bikinis
What he said, you'll never regret getting the honda, as long as it checks out fine. It will also boost the resale on your boat.
I checked out a...
Is that the same one with the cp issues? if so, it came out great. love the color. if not, it still looks great. nice work as usual.
I'm dying here, I heard a few boats ran 2 days ago, to no avail, just a long sight seeing boat ride. Thanks for trying. they'll be here soon...
Bloo toof, bloo toof,
what he said.
I love my Avets, I had 1 problem after servicing my MXL 2 speed, It sounded and felt like crap, I sent it back and Avet fixed it and sent a free...
good work. I need some more pink meat.
I like my Bucci's, it's a Santa Cruz company with head quarters in Ben Lomond, the glasses are made in Italy and they offer a wide variety of...
we had the same thing happen to our raymarine. send it in for servicing, not many will mess with fixing that, we had to replace the plug. are you...
great rod, the marbling is so clean, hang it over the mantle.
I like how a rod discussion turned into a returned reel, maybe this should have been a "what reel for #75-150 tuna?".
snap, that was pretty good.
This is the same shit that happened to my local res. they shut down stocking programs for years to do studies about the frogs, come to find out...
that's the way, that outside enzyme protects the flesh and is key to a moist good smoke
Check out Coit tower, the views of the bay are awesome, there are some ok hotels in china town I've gotten free parking at some of them too. and...
the reel looks good, but I'm curious how it fishes, just send one my way I'll let you know what I think.
Santa Cruz beach boardwalk, great palce to hang out and watch the boats, and the rides are fun too. Don't forget to get a corn dog from the stand...
love it, those A frame wedges look fun, LOL
crazy B.S. right there, the parents should be charged for child endangerment
8 and 10 out at night with hammer and spray paint, I hope the...
that is what I was thinking, I'll try it on an old piece of fiberglass and test out the flexibility. thanks DocSki.
Love it, are you trying to make us jealous? I'm lucky to have a corner of my living room reserved, if she had her way there would be a screen,...
My brother and I have a Parker, which got me thinking about my build for my brother's calstar west coaster I'm building. You all know the...
stunning, so clean, & color scheme is great.
sweet! nice catch
Hope nothing is wrong with your shaft. Too bad, always - $$$$$$$
killer looking, what a first rod!
we use the small ones and use bait as big as a small plate. the bigger bait = bigger lings, I like a 6'' bait best single hook the mouth, with a...
Got 2 sxj's pre-ordered from them in the past, customer service was great, they also followed up e-mail questions fast.
good model worth the money,
can up 1200 bags of tuna and you break even.
my condolences, & peace to your family. It sound like he went doing what he loved to do.
Not a huge fish, but I caught a 30 in ling the other day, No problem.
like, what a good looking rod
I use to work as a sushi chef, it is always a good call to freeze fish overnight, all our fish was frozen, I thought it was the law to freeze fish...
No need for T.P. I love the raw water washdown, it feels very Euro.
I heard the black ones catch more fish so they are changing them all to black.
Next in line, hit me up
Thanks everyone for the positive responses, that's why I love the rod building forum, you all are a great resource and I started rod building...
I was using Flex coat, it was the first time I have tried it, maybe I need to sand the marbling, if so, what grit sand paper would you recommend?
Jealous, wow what a Man cave.
This is the third rod I have completed, I thought I would share, be easy on me.
it's a Batson Rainshadow rclb70xl live bait stick, that came as...
I'm sure it was released unharmed, right, after being knocked around on deck and handled for a picture. How do you catch and release, After you...
perfect. will do when I get home from work. hopefully it will come out half as good as the phenix rods you build.
thanks for the help.
thanks jimmy that is what I was looking for. any suggestions on size for the reel seat?
ground control, ground control to Major Tom.
I'm kind of getting the hang of building rods, but I have started with rod kits form acid rod to learn, now I want to build from scratch I have an...
