    Open Party Boats???:

    I was just up in Seattle for a few days. My better half had to work, and I was looking to go fishing for a day or so. It was salmon opener, but didn't have to fish for salmon, Bottom fish would have been fine. I was totally shocked to find out, that there isn't one party type boat running out of...

    Hey Folks. Just looking for a little information. A friend of mine was planning a trip on the New Lo-Ann for this weekend. (1.5 day). He got a call last night that the trip was cancelled. He found a boat leaving on the same day and time to fit his flight schedule. So I haven't fished any of...

    Polaris Deluxe ????

    Hey All. I was doing a little surfing on line, and read an old article about Bill Poole building a new boat, 86 footer, (early 80's???) called the Polaris Deluxe??? I aroused my curiosity. Was it ever built??? If so, what is it named now??? Just wondering if anybody knows about it.

    Taros" Boat:

    Just wondering if anyone knows the name of the boat that Taro, from the American Angler, is running. I had heard he either bought into one, or is part owner, or maybe even sole owner, of a boat in San Diego. I'm wondering, because I would like to fish with the guy again. I looked at the big 3...

    Wahoo Reel.

    I have been "hemming and hawing" about a new reel for wahoo for about 2 years now. Still doing comparisons, and waiting for either a BIG sale, or prices to drop some (LOL). I was wondering what you all think of the Shimano Tranx for wahoo. Probably strictly for bombs, and or jigs. I keep leaning...

    Thinking about a new reel for wahoo.

    I'm toying with the idea of a new reel for throwing wahoo bombs. There is nothing wrong with what I have now, (Pro-Gear 454, and a Tiburon autoshift sst8, might be a 16, I don't remember. But it is used for 50 lb. line). I'm just thinking about it. So what is the best bang for the buck????

    Anyone ever fish the Islander?

    I have been invited to go on a 3 day trip on the Islander. Just wondering if you guys would give me some feed back on what to expect (other than a good time:-), on the boat, crew, food, comfort, storage (both tackle, and room) etc... I'm stoked about getting to go!

    Greg Mueller of the AA:

    I just read the American Anglers Web page. It saddens me to hear that the long time chef, Greg, passed away Tuesday. I have fished with Greg for the last 5 years. He was a great guy, a lot of fun to be around, and one of the best chefs in the fleet. will never forget his smiles, his...

    Glow Sticks:

    Just wondering if any of you "plastic" guys ever thought of putting a small "glow stick" inside of your "pour". Snap the stick before fishing begins. Just curious if any of the experimenters have tried this?

    A question: New build, or Rebuild????

    I'm just curious as to what you builders think is the better way to go. I had my first custom rod made about 7 years ago (maybe 5 or 6, I really don't remember). Anyway, It was measured out for me, and I had a few things done just because I want it that way. My one mistake, was having it done...
