I know C-Map can do it. I had a card made for Nav Net 1 and the boundaries were on it.

I have always kept a swordy casting rod on the boat. I have not seen a swordy on the surface for the last 6 years. I have a Tiagra 20 on the rod now and I want to replace that with a start drag reel and use the Tiagra for a trolling reel. I will have Spectra and Mono topshot.
Whats should I use?
I want to replace the bow rail on my 28 Henriques. It has east coast style, which are low. Looking for contacts. The boat is in the water, so it must be fabricated and installed in the slip or a boat yard.
I plan to call FBU.
Any other contacts would be appreciated.
I'm staying in Avalon for 4 days and running the bait pump on the mooring is not an option. In the past I have caught macks off casino break wall. Has anyone caught them here recently? Any other spots would be appreciated.
Bob on Tunacious Too
I'm ready for my first try to catch a Bluefin on the popper.
1- How are the poppers rigged. I have heard to remove the treble and use assist hooks.
2- If using assist hooks, rear only or front and rear?
3- How to connect the popper to main line? I have 80 spectra to 80 pound mono. Straight tie...
I need to replace the chain and rode on my 28 diesel boat. Boat is 12,000 lbs.The current set up is 10 feet of chain and 150 feet of 1/2 inch rode. The rode is worn badly. The anchor is a 14 Lb Danforth. I want to replace the anchor and use the old as a backup.
My plan is to get 30 feet of 5/16...
I bought a Henriques 28 in NJ in October and have been putting the boat back together and making her ready to fish So Cal. I contracted with Pacific Edge to fabricate and install a bait tank. It is a new model that mark cut down to about 75 gallons. It has a blue interior, rod holders...
Does anyone know which sentences need to be turned on in the NavNet1 to send Lat/Lon info to a Simrad AP22? The connection is made, I turned them off troubleshooting a GPS sensor issue and did not write them down accurately enough.
I broke the frames on my Maui Jim sunglasses. My first reaction is to but another pair as I really like the MJ. I'm looking for other recommendations. I like glass lenses for off shore. The plastic just scratch up too easy.
What is the best way to tip a charter crew? Do I give money to the Capt and let him pay the Mate or do I give tip to each separately. If I give each a share, how is it spilt, 50-50 or 60-40, 70-30?
I'm fishing out on Kona on the 23rd.
I will be in Kona on July 22 and 23. Looking for a Charter for my family. I looked at tournament schedule and this is a busy time. The last time I was in Kona, 2007, I used the charter desk for the reservation. It does not look like that is the same. I could be mistaken. I sent a...
I'm taking the family to the Islands in july. We want to visit the Arizona Memorial. I'm not sure if we will go to another island or not. Is there a good charter fleet in Oahu and how about a recommendation. We went to Kone twice and I was lucky both times to get short billed spearfish...
My wife had surgery on Tuesday and I was the nurse maid all week. She was feeling so good by Friday night, she said, "Take the kid fishing"! That was all I needed to hear. Packed some gear and made a late start from Dana Point. The bait was awesome. I headed south west to 289. It gave me the...
I inherited a Remington 701 in 30-06. I also got a bunch of old shell casings for 30-06 and .243. There are also a bunch of military rounds in 6 shell clips. The rounds are all solid bullet. Are these rounds still safe to fire? Are the shell casings suitable for re-load and do they...
The first trip is planned. This is my question. I have two adults with salt water license and a 10 year old, that does not require a license. Everyone, including the non-licensed minor, has a report card. Does each card have to be filled out at start of fishing with location code, gear code...
I'm ready to sell my Blackman. The boat is documented with the Coast Guard. The boat was purchased with the guidance of a broker. Any ideas on the procedure to transfer title, collect money in a secure way, handle sea trial, deposit, survey and any other relevant piece to this process...

I don't post a lot, but this time is different. I took my 7 year old son, Zach out on Sunday to try and catch some fish. He has not caught a YT,YFT, or Dorado yet. He has the inshore stuff down and he battled a 100 lb Mako for 50 minutes before wearing out.
We went to the 209 and...
I live in Laguna Niguel and I need a Mexcian fishing license. It does not matter if I have to pay a extra fee for a local shop. With the price of gas, driving to SD is not the best idea.
Where can I get one on Friday?
Thanks in advance.
Short Report. Fished on Sunday on my brothers boat, 28 Topaz- 50 50. I caught a 29.7 YT on the bait grounds at 0630.
Long Report. Left DP at 4:15. West wind was starting to blow. Not too bad at 15 Kts. Ran to the bait grounds. All the light boats were still asleep. Anchored up behind LBC...
Hi guys. I have thursday off. Planning a trip to 182, 43 bank from Dana Point. The weather reports don't look that bad. Has anyone been out to verify the forecast? The run back uphill to DP is never fun, but if the game bag is full then its ok. Boat is 26 Blackman.
I got a dedicated swordy rod. I need advice on a reel. I have a Tiburon SST12, but I'm not sure of line capacity. I bought Momoi Diamond hard 40 to put on the reel- it breaks at 62 lbs. I think I want 2 speed, but it has to cast good too. I don't want to do the braided top shot thing either. Any...
Hi Guys. I just got back from Kona and here is my report. I fished on Northern Lights with Capt Steve Epstein on the wheel and his son Tracy in the pit. I had my wife Tina and son Zachary along. The morning tide was 0630 so we got to the boat at 0615 and had lines in just outside the harbor...
Hi guys. I will be on the Big Island the last week of June, 07. I;m not sure if I can afford to jump on a boat, but I would like to. Any recommendations on a good charter and prices. If I go, how does the tip work? Tip Capt and crew together or separate?
I had 2 custom rods made at a local shop, for 30 lb trolling. I wanted 7 foot to get around my swim step. The work was good and I'm happy, except the reel seat is mounted, what I consider low. It barely fits in my boats rod holders. I would like to shorten the rod, if possible.
I wasn't going to post this, but what the heel. I took my boat Tunacious out on Saturday with a friend Brian. The plan was to head off 181 - 289 looking for Salad and Porps. A friend called from the 181 and he got a single DoDo of a kelp. we ran in and got a bull, about 15 lbs on a Archer...
