    I appreciate you’re concern but you should be more than quite sure before making a PSA about fishing in a no-take zone. Please see the attached image for the outline of said MPA.

    Pilot house cost estimate

    I bought it nov 2015. I think the guy who owned it before me had it for basically the summer. He was pretty green, didn't know much about it. How long did you own it for?

    Pilot house cost estimate

    Here's a few pictures of my rig. If I decided to build the pilot house I would sell the top to offset some of the funds. I'm fine with vinyl, it's cost effective but not as durable. Doing the sides of the vinyl enclosure seem straight forward but the front is throwing me a bit...would i run it...

    Pilot house cost estimate

    I have a Skipjack 20 open that I'd like to put a pilot house on and I'm looking for how much others spent doing it themselves. From what I've seen window are pretty pricey, around $200 each and marine grade plywood is $50 a sheet, fiberglass and resin aren't cheap guessing $300? Probably run...

    Cutting out fish hold for fuel tank

    My 1984 skipjack 20 open has a useless in floor fish hold, it doesn't hold ice for an hour so I was thinking about cutting it out, leaving the lid, and putting in a second fuel tank. Has anyone done this? How much room is down there? Any pictures or advice would be helpful.

    Navigating Through Kelp Patties

    Agreed, as a spearo it's our/my responsibility to know the location/environment and aclimate accordingly.

    Navigating Through Kelp Patties

    Please be careful driving through kelp beds as there are frequently freedivers spearfishing in there. Nobody should be ripping through the bed as it is not conducive to fishing nor is it safe. Even on the outside of the bed exercise caution and give it a wide berth. It is also up to the divers...

    Preferred Tackle Storage

    Some good info here guys thanks. I don't have a whole lot of room in my cockpit/deck so I imagine I would throw it on my seat, so a smaller profile would be better so it doesn't fall over when a swell rolls through. I've got some good options in front of me though,that's for sure. The nomad is nice.

    Preferred Tackle Storage

    Well it would mostly go on my boat (skipjack 20) but I want something I can throw on my buddies boat and not take up too much space. I'd have different trays for jigs depending upon species, one for weights, and one for hooks. The later two would probably always stay in the bag. I'd rather carry...

    Hey guys. I'm looking to update my tackle storage. What do you guys like? I'm thinking about the Shimano Blackmoon. I like the idea of exchanging the trays, which all soft bags offer, but also that is a backpack rather than a strap to throw over your shoulder. I'd like to hear what you guys...
