    Risking passenger safety for yellowfin

    Get on the radio, take a deep breath and calmly ask what's going on. Talk it over like adults and work it out. Be polite and have a discussion. Throwing jigs is never a good thing.

    Our last trip was horrible. But to be fair, they said they have corrected the problem with the A/C. It was unbearable below deck with no A/C. I couldn't sleep for the entire trip. If they can confirm that the A/C is working, it's a good boat, and the crew was top notch.

    I think passports are a good idea, but I don't believe they're required if you leave U.S. waters and never land or get within 12 nautical miles of another country.

  309. fishstomp


    If the boat fishes within 12 miles of the mainland or any of the islands, while in Mexico, everyone needs one. If everyone on the boat has one it gives you more options. Unfortunately, even if the trip says it requires them, it seems there's always people showing up without them.

    Need 1" Railing Section Bent?

    I just called our shop and they said they charge $10.00 a bend for 1" and thats a 5 or 6" radius. Hope that helps. (Ace hydraulics in Bakersfield) Your local shop should be comparable.

    Need 1" Railing Section Bent?

    We bend stainless tubing at work all the time but our benders only go up to 5/8". When we need 1" bent we take it to the shop that makes up our hydraulic hoses and tubing. You might check with a shop that sells hydraulic hoses and fittings. Worth a shot.

    What's a good surface iron reel and no Newell info please.

    I like small reels. Diawa Saltist sttld20 if you want a smaller 2 speed 6.3:1. Diawa Saltist sttld40sha 7.1:1 if you want a larger high speed reel. Both are $289.00 at Charkbait loaded with braid and a mono topshot.

    Yep, if you have minnows you can kill the crappie. But don't run a boat in the lake. It is super low. Bob's bait and tackle is reliable for bait. If you want to fish the river try the power plant just north of Kernville. Wade to the far side and cast to the fast running water under the trees...
