    need advice - need to locate my freezer outside - shaded spot - upright or chest?

    Frost buildup happens when you open the door. With an upright freezer the door is open much less time, so they have less frost buildup. Get an alarm. Mine (about $20) has remote sensors, you can set the temp that the alarm sounds.

    I fished the evening high tide move after work. The weather wasn't nice, the surf was crossed-up, and not many nugs. I found crabs easy, but a good hole in the shorebreak took a while. The hole had plenty of perch, and several real slabs. Then the corb hit in the skinny, and took line on several...

    Squidco has the bigger units, but they looked too big for the perch/corb. The 1/4 oz. is hard to manage even if you can cast it out. If there's any surf at all, and you have an angle at all, the surf will drag it right in for you, and you'll just be trying to keep up with the slack.
