    Trump vetoes bill to outlaw drift gillnets

    I have no idea what this bill contain nor do I want to exert the energy to do so. I find it quite bizarre that even as sportsmen who share the love of the same hobby would just blindly disagree with each other on any subject if it involves "our side" on the political spectrum.

    Wow. I have owned my boat for 4 years now. I have always been hesitant in pulling anyone behind my boats and probably will never do this as it freaks me out knowing I will have to be near someone with my boat running. This post is my worst fear as a boat captain considering I only take close...

    Tragic call for help on the 312

    I know this wasn't the case in this specific incident but I learned a hard lesson as a captain myself. Last year off Pt. Loma fishing with my kids, we were drifting a good 100 yards away from a boat that had it's flag up and a diver below. While in the excitement of hooking up on fishes, I...

    Goodbye & Thank You

    You're making the wrong assumption here. There's two main things that would drive the rent up. First is what I had mentioned and this is the biggest factor. The overall cost to buy property. The higher the cost to buy something, the higher you will have to charge in rent to recoup the cost...

    I'm not sure if you are trying to imply that the undocumented population is the reason for high rent. The cost of houses in So Cal and CA in general have been increasing year over year since the big crash around 2009. High costs to buy a house equal high rents. To me this is obvious unless...

    I don't care who the Govenors of any state. If there is ever a pandemic where lives are at risk, I would much rather be in Wyoming, the Dakotas or any of those state compared to the larger more dense states with a lot of international travelers. There's a reason for this and you know why...

    Fine compare CA to NY. NY has about 7k deaths. Based on what you said that 40% of it is in NYC due to 8 million people living in a small area ( NYC pop actually more), that still leaves over 3500 dead outside of NYC. So yes even discounting NYC, CA has done great compared to the rest of New York.

    Population density definitely play a role in this. Thats why those state you mention will never be hit as hard as everything is spread out. However, CA is not exactly like OK, ND, SD or some of those other state. Yes it's also not as dense as NYC but some area, it is still more dense then...

    Braid breaking point

    Went to Fishermans Hardware which is right around the corner from my work and picked up a spool of 65 lb J braid. It was around $11 more expensive than what I bought at Amazon. They didn't carry any 832 spools. This new spool consistently broke at 45 lb which is much better. However it's...

    Braid breaking point

    On the initial break, I had an arbor knot on my reel. As I pulled the 832 to tighten the knot, it snapped rather easily. I have never snapped any braided line by pulling it especially with my bare hand let alone it being 65 lb test. That's when I proceeded to test the line. I had a polomar...

    $150 For An Overnighter?

    I thnk this all depends on how often you go out. If it's like once every other month thing, then I'm sure an avid fisherman could fork over $200 or so for an over nighter. Now if you really want to go out every weekend or so, then that money can add up real quick and it's probably best if you...

    Barracuda

    I must be the only one ever to BBQ these slime sticks. I have gone on many 3/4 boats catching these things and have them sit around for hours. I filet it, soak them in butter and lime. Marinated it with mccmormick seafood rub and grill the thing. Even people I know who don't usually like...

    Need some advice for first time boat owner

    That's a great advice and I'm actually thinking of having the boat checked out up in Chicago. The problem is that my bro is super busy with his business to take care of this and I'm not sure if I can take the time to fly up there and tow it to a shop. I'll definately look into it more though...

    Need some advice for first time boat owner

    I was just there in Chicago and saw the boat. It looks big. It's covered up though so I couldn't really see the boat in great details and since it's winterized we couldn't start it up. Or at least that's what I assumed so I didn't ask my bro to start it up. He uses it for Salmon fishing in...

    Avet SX Drag problem

    Thanks for the response. We found out the problem. It turns out the knob by the handle is busted. Not sure if it was broken before or after the incident. A buddy of mine is going to fix it for me. He knows a lot more about these reels than I do.

    Avet SX Drag problem

    I have an SX single speed. I think it's the first or second generation version where you can hear little clicking when you reel it. I had gotten my line stuck to the bottom with full drag on when my buddy gunned his boat and took off. The line didn't break but a lot of line let out and I...

    Flouro leader

    Question for those of you who fishes with flouro leader. If flouro leader is supposedly invisible then does it matter what size we use as long as it's big enough to handle the fish? For instance, I have a setup with 80lb of flouro leader on 100lb braid that I used in PV to catch yellow fins and...

    Regulation when eating fish caught on boat

    Does anyone know the regulation when you're eating your caught fish on the boat? I know this might sound silly but if I decide to cut up and cook the fish I caught while still fishing, do I have to do anything to show proof that the fish I caught and eating are of the legal size?

    Mega Mouth Shark Caught............ and ate.

    if the shark was accidentally caught and died anyways, then what was wrong with those filipinos eating the shark? The shark was dead anways so might as well make some good with the meat.

    Outboard vs Inboard motor

    Great info guys. Please keep it coming. Starting off, is it cheaper or more expensive to get an outboard versus an inboard? In the long run, which is cheaper and more expensive to maintain?
  491. ocsleeper

    Outboard vs Inboard motor

    the sales guys at Fred Hall told me that some of the new stripers there should get average of 4-5 mpg. Was it just a typical sales guys inflating numbers?
  492. ocsleeper

    Outboard vs Inboard motor

    I'm thinking between a 19-23 depending on my budget. I don't plan to buy until next year but want to start the research ahead of time. I really liked the Stripers and saw some at the Fred Hall yesterday.

    Can anyone tell me the differance between the Outboard versus Inboard motor? I know that one is inside the boat where as the other is outside. But I'm interested in knowing the pros and cons of having either of these motors such as cost, maintanence, performance, etc... Thanks
