Is 73 too many ...IMO yes (and you did ask)
Do we ever think about what will happen to all of it after we pass? Goodwill? Trash?
I too a man in his 60's had way too much stuff. About 10 years ago ... Instead of keeping stuff I 'll never or rarely use, I sell/give them away thus clearing out...
MyNomad I do agree with those above statements. It may shock you but I am lifetime Republican and voted for Trump 2x. I do fight those things you mention and put my neck out on a constant basis. I am not ashamed to be outspoken in meetings and stand up to idiocy. I proudly say the pledge...
Your loathing of teachers is obvious...just keep in check that your opinions about them are just your opinions. Your pension comment was not accurate. IMO.. Your "private sector " stress is evident through your posts. Are we now in a pissing match about job stress? Isn't that an individual...
Hey I was cleaning at my parents house and found 2 old boxes of mine tucked in the garage (given up for lost decades ago) lots of interesting old stuff...I'll bore you with that later...
anyway found some old jigs including this Tady 9/0. I think the color was called angry squid?
I have the same engine Honda 150 I have a few ?? How was the flow when you fished? If it was that weak I'd be nervous...
Those engines are tough to get enough water using muffs...keep the water on full and squeeze those muffs on.
there is a cool store called sportsman's warehouse loaded w/ gear fun place to check out. There is a visitor center there indoor covering lots of dino footprints cool as well sorry these are alternatives to fishing
Looking to get komodo 463. There seems to be 3 different handle choices paddle, knob w/counterweight, power knob only. What are the positives / negatives of each?...plan on using it as a bait reel #25 or #30 lb top shots opinions ? Thanks
I love mY 20 ft dual console striper w/150 honda...it does get spray like most boats, but we can all stand behind the windshield...has 1 back to back seat that is a guaranteed nap starter while trolling .... has big stern area for bait tank and 2 big dudes, I fish in the front cheap to take...
at least take it to a honda shop and hook it up to the computer...they will tell you hours, hours at different rpm's compression test look at lower end oil. I did that w/ my boat that has a 2006 Honda 150
Here's a few tips...
*Take your time and look around a lot. The economic conditions are ripening for some good deals. Rushing causes buyer's remorse. Good deals are out there all the time be patient.
*Sea trial /mechanic checks save a lot of heartbreak.
*Don't buy a boat you cant afford to...
I’m hooked too Wildbunch bragged about the fathoms and I respect his opinion so
Now I have 2 fathom 2 speeds
I fathom ii star drag and a squall levelwind
Great values and solid reels tunanorths advice was key as well!! Go Penn
go to the fish hatchery outside of Juneau..there is usually hundreds of salmon there and people use a weighted treble cuz snagging in ocean is legal...buy a cheap rod at walmart in town usually chums bur at times silvers or kings
go to the hatchery where they bunch up outside of it...locals snag salmon (legal there) I went there on a cruise checked it out and a local said if I bought a license he'd lend me a rod...I did just that and snagged a king and 6 chums it was great fun and great fights in 2 hours cost was nominal
I have taken reels many times to the headquarters in Irvine. no appointment needed.....just call first to see if open then go to service office ...something small...the fix right then or you can have reels shipped home or pick up when done...AAA service there at Shimano
yes it was there all in US waters about 15 mi straight out of MB
Scott you always get first option to go with me
You help with boat off season...you help wash up ...you always have $$.. you are prompt glad you were there today
I still have a couple... from the late 80's small company
pretty similar to the iron man jigs that came out later ...
the one on the right is the lura 1or 2
the left and center look like size 3
typical lures for the "3 B's" /albacore
mine are mostly chrome/blue never used the green yellow
Chuck, no the Grumpy didn't dump you joe is having engine problems...I have been sedating him and taking him out on mine in fact we go again Wednesday
Im sure it is tough to invite someone out to have motor grief
Just giving the weekend warriors some intel for the weekend.
Great bait...large sardine/ mackeral mix or small dine / mini mac mix..since I have split tanks I took some of each. Large swell across harbor mouth,,,just wait and shoot out between sets...headed offf cbad 5-6 mi 70 degree water...
yes ...I fish Lake Gregory with it and it does well.... vary the depths ...I usually follow it with A dave davis rigged with a needlefish or flor orange small rapala ...this works well at big bear....or DVL
I use this technique a lot......you have to go a super slow speed so only do this when you are in a fishy area like around a paddy that has fish but they are spooky...nose hook is good but I prefer hooking in the "neck" of the bait...put lines out about 25-50 yards out... ringed hooks help...
Yesterday we fished (sunday) 7 mi off Moonlight beach Cbad/ Encinitas border found a patty and drifted caught 14 small YFT and 2 yellows and a skippy done by 11:00am water was 72-73 degrees it was good karma as we could only buy a half scoop of bait as were told by bait company chunked up the...
hey corey...the bite was on at oside yesterday WED as we caught several YFT drifting and chunking 8 mi out...it did get windy about 1:00 also got the best sized deans all summer yesterday at oside sorry you missed it
I thought the weather is always bad in O'side and the fish left the area :confused::rolleyes:...I forwarded this thread to jalimi where's his invite...
good job gettin some..... got to love the private boats el nino...I did my last trip on 11 gallons hooo hoo:jig::rockin:

Paddies holding yellows of all sizes...saw a marlin on a paddy...even a yellowfin or 2...
did you run over that tuna on the ramp? hows your tire... Where's my care package? need a home loan I know a guy with 20 years in the corporate world and 30 yrs in the jaccuzzi lets midweek tuna on my small boat soon
I have a few rods where the hypalon is loosing the smooth-ish finish. what are my repair choices without
a whole rewrap? I saw a product that is like the grip on teramar rods...seems to heat shrink wrap over old hypalon. opinions and who does this in no sandiego or OC areas thank you
I hung an old silverware rack from a dishwasher attached to the garage wall for my jigs...I then only pack the iron i need for each trip..my tackle box currently holds my 6X's for box cyn
I hope this helps ...works for me
]WE found the right kelp, "rubber ducky" moved in 10ft off the kelp without asking or radio comm., another comes in and drifts into the kelp, then all the others came... Bite shut down pretty quick. We had it wide open mahi for the first 20 mins. But that's fishing! Glad you guys got in on the...
one of my trolling rod's hypalon if beginning to wear...the smooth finish is wearing off leaving more of an open cell foam...short of a rewrap...re.hypalon...are there products or ideas to help? thanks

iF i COULD SEE YOUR VIDEO i COULD COMPARE THE FLOW TO MY hONDA
in upside down land he would say "can you see it boys.?. A dolphin....I know a dolphin" and where are your coke bottle cartoon lenses of your youth? YOU KNOW ...would be the answer thanks for the trip see ya nxt year!
while heading to the barn kelp I saw this floating off in the distance
as we approached this rotting carcass, the air became very pungent
the boys wanted to pop it with a gaff
but i used my middle aged wisdom to know better
after failed attempts to pop it from a distance using various missles...
Now Joe was that Your marlin or Daddy's marlin (JALIMI)???
PS before you release another eating fish because your freezer is full...think of your bros whose freezers r empty...(like saturdays customers)
nice work there guys...I'll be ready to join you next week...I'll bring the wrist rocket to fend off the chum line invaders...PS did that guys gel coat really scratch off that much paint off your jig? PS you do fish too much...without the hobbit

"WITH YOUR TALENT YOU COULD WALK ON ANYWHERE...SCOUTS WERE WATCHING"
took my good friend Grumpy out in my boat to la jolla...
Prior to this I met up with Mr Tommy Gomes who hooked me up with some Uni goop...For those not in the know that is basically chopped up sea urchin to chum...got my scoop of extra large dines with hopes of slow trolling them in the PM for...
how many coats? and how long would you let it dry before applying the next coat...I'm not sure how much time I have in between fishing venture.
I agree on the 8 coats lightly sand between it will last a long time
My boat has a Honda 150 as well the same thing happened to me @ La Jolla last year...alarm and shut down when running through a kelp paddy...cleaned it out no problem since...i would feel good the system works
I brought my prospect boat to a mechanic and they hooked it up to the computer told me hours...compression... hours at different rpm ranges...systems check...it was good peace of mind and i bought the boat pending this check
30 + Calico on sardine, gulp, plastics, no shorts to 3#'s 97% released

1.5 gazillion sweet little candy macks.

1 late partner
I did that a few years ago...i got on a bus ...taken to a marina put on a boat w/3 other guys and trolled(w/ a guide) for wfo pink (Humpies) salmon taking turns while the guide cleaned fish i cast a croc and caught a 11lb silver (coho) it was fun...saw lots of bald eagles
in my many years of fishing...I have or seen
####a rod get pulled out of a rod holder...
#### rods get bounced out of a rocket launcher and fly into the drink
##### rods get yanked overboard ...by leaving in in gear..
##### rods cast into the water by the user....
#####rods lost on the baja...
i agree that some engines don't respond well to muffs...Grumpy 26 changed my impeller and water pump on my 97 40hp suzuki and with muffs the overheat alarm came on then we put it in a trashcan full of water and presto...at the lake no issues.
I also have a snugtop tonneau cover on my GMC truck with a 6 1/2 ft bed I love it over other trucks I've had with shells I can fit 8ft. rods in it diagonally and the important thing is my wife and I can take it off in 5 min (without her complaining) very secure with locking everything is also...

a spot simply known as "Tits".
Congrats to the Crawdad Guy for keeping it real, and bagging another DD largemouth bass.
Thanks Capt.G the 18th had all the right mix...waxing moon...no one on the lake.. incoming.warm low pressure...classic... still trolling too but 26 G hogs the spreader
top 5 reasons I 'll never get to fish with you and Rob
*****I can't spike my hair or wear a visor because I'M BALD
*****I work during the week
*****I've never been invited
***** I can't tie a good uni to uni knot
****** I kill and eat Ling cod

I think i have that engine on my bass boat,,,my maintenance (yearly) includes lower unit oil/new plugs (every couple of years includes a impeller and decarb) is it a 2 cylinder engine? they are very low maintenace....at a shop.... impeller $300 lube/plugs $100
And then there's the part about a crusty old salt standing behind the helm who's had the pleasure of skippering a few big ones to the boat over the last 3 decades......he only put it in the wrong gear at the worst possible time twice and drove over the line a few times..
THE REAL Grumpy...
I took a mex cruise in Dec and stopped there for a day...I chartered a 40ft.boat for $300 that included all the tackle..they trolled split tailed mullet we caught tuna ...dorado..had a sail come unbuttoned and had a hookup with a 200lb plus hammerhead...it was an old boat...the rods were penn...
