    Looking for waverunner partner to fish Catalina-SoCal waters

    Try using a sea anchor for those windy days. A kayak sea anchor or maybe a little bigger one for a 14' boat will help big time without the hassle/ danger of anchoring. If your in the SF valley I have a small kayak sea anchor you can have.

    Kill box/storage or below deck generator?

    Sounds like you probably won't get the most use out of a generator not using your a/c. How often do you really need a/c on the west coast in a smaller boat? We just put one in our family boat- 31'Cabo and are about 13k deep so far. Water got on it so it's being removed at the moment-more $$$. I...

    Yeah, I was tripping that he threw his anchor right on the high spot we were fishing. He had 7 guys on a 24' boat so we already knew googans were out. You guys made me feel my decision to fish sat over sunday was the right one. Thursday and Friday I was contemplating to move the trip to Sunday...

    Islands Santa Rosa SPJ Report - 3/27-28/21

    No worries, looked like your boat as one was a ranger bass boat and was spot locked and the other full of people. Didn't piss us off as there are so many spots up there. I was also thinking about Sunday but the weather repots were a little conflicting. Sunday looked like less swell and little...

    Great report. I think we rolled to the island together most the way. I was the Parker. We started on some small reef off rosa and your buddy dumped his anchor 20' off my stern. We picked a few fish off the spot before rolling to Miguel.

    1991 bayliner trophy 2352 outboard conversion.

    The nice thing with the extra fuel it also adds a bit of stability to the boat. I used to run my 2601 striper mostly full for that reason alone. It seemed a bit corky on the water without. Love the progress you have made, it wont be long at this pace till we see some blood on the decks!

    Catalina Squid? . ?

    Look for them on your meter off the bottom. Usually they are in small patches right on the bottom. Use a heavy squid jig on the bottom attached to the daisy chain squid catcher above. Lots of times you will snag an egg sack with the bottom squid jig and know you are in the right area.

    Not enough fuel or boat for me personally but I am sure guys do it. You can always go to Avalon and top off on fuel there. The weather and swell behind Clemente can be dramatically different than the front side and suck the fuel.

    Offshore Tips for crew on overnight boats when no tuna?

    My buddy had a similar sized Topaz boat with twin BB Chevy's that got 1 to 1 at cruise. Big block and small block twin gassers in any boat is going to be crap fuel mileage. Pay high upfront cost on a diesel boat and save later or cheap up front cost of a gas boat and pay at the pump.

    What is this part off my Yamaha 225?

    Yesterday while finishing my 100 hrs service (1100 hrs) I saw this rubber piece on the ground. I looked around but did not see where it goes and looks like wherever it came from it needs to be replaced as it looks kind of beat. Any idea?

    I have not disconnected the shift rod. Its a Mercury motor. Seems similar to my Yamaha. I will look into that. I have tried putting it in gear and moving the prop. It does move back and forth, not much. No bolts behind the anodes that I could see. 2008 Mercury 90 four stroke

    Fuel Gauge Not Accurate

    I agree as many are not accurate. I have found that my Yamaha fuel flow meter to be extremely accurate. As it reading 95.9 gallons burned and 95.5 pumped at the end of a trip. I am very impressed with the accuracy. It's definitely one of the best investments I installed on the boat.
  400. PaDDy Killer'

    Fuel Gauge Not Accurate

    You might want to invest in a fuel flow meter additionally to having a properly working fuel sender. It will tell you exactly how much fuel you burn. Great for splitting up the fuel cost after a trip and knowing exactly what you have left to burn through.
  401. PaDDy Killer'

    Sure sounds like the neutral safety switch. Maybe try and get the boat to do it again on the trailer. Put the muffs on it and put it in and out of gear trying to duplicate the problem. Also buy a owners manual as it will show you exactly where the starter solenoid is. It probably is not to...

    Portable Bait Tank

    They work great in freshwater keeping shad alive all day. If you want to use it in the salt you are going to have to do very frequent water changes. I would not recommend for permanent use in salt. Its ok on occasion but a pain to maintain through out the day. And do not over crowd the tank.
