    Storing an 1801 in SD

    It’s hard for me to justify paying more to store the boat than to own it! I am learning pretty quickly that storage is not cheap but I guess that’s just the way it is! Thanks

    Storing an 1801 in SD

    Unfortunately the KOA is also full. I placed an inquiry with camp land. The club is a little gnarly with the membership fees and then quarterly assessment fees. Thanks guys hopefully I get some better luck so I don’t have to sell the boat...

    Storing an 1801 in SD

    Good morning, Just moved to Carlsbad and plan on fishing out of SD or mission bay. I had space to store my boat at my old house but currently do not. A slip is out of my price range so I need some dry storage suggestions. I would like to have it close to mission or sd bay. I found a cool spot in...

    Rockfishing in socal.

    From what I have seen it looks like Santa Barbara is your best bet on size. They seem to crush big reds and ling all the time. I think the boat “coral sea” or something along those lines does really well. I’ve also been on some good rock fishing trips out of San Diego fishing around the Coronado’s

    Shimano TranX 500 vs Trini 20a

    I’m a big fan of the Tranx. Caught 2 100# class bft on it last year. Once you hook em it is more work but the casting and retrieve are insane
