My bottom paint looks like crap. I have no idea how many coats of paint is in the boat. I also have no idea how the boat was prepped prior to paint.
The boat lives on a trailer and I would like to get back to gelcoat.
Any ideas how to remove it?
Garmin 1040xs w/ GT23M
I feel like I can’t get enough gain out of the unit. When I turn it on and set it to auto high gain it is at 92-94% depending on water depth and conditions. I only have another 6-8% of gain to add. I am not able to add enough gain to see fish.

I am able to read the bottom and the transducer seems very accurate.
I am not able to see anything when offshore. I can have tuna...
Has anyone used a box anchor in the ocean. I have one and loved it in Parker on the river.
I dont see a reason it would not hold in the ocean. From La Jolla to Catalina. Only thing I worry about is on a rocky/cobble stone bottom. In the mud and sand I thing it would work great.
Finally got the Maritime 20D on the water.
Picked my 8 year old up from school with my 3 year old. We took his friend, another 8 year old. His friend had never caught a fish so he was the priority. Made the 2 hour drive down to Coronado island to launch. Driving down all three boys were...
I am set on the Garmin 94 sv plus.
Confused on the stock transducers that come with the units.
What transducer for Southern California salt water. Inshore fishing 60-300’ and offshore looking for tuna in the top 200’ of water.
Traditional CHIRP is more important than side/down view. Thank you
Hooped a local spot last. Ought with my son and boat partner.
Got on the water and dropped hoops without bait to reserve my spot. About an hour before dark went. Ack through and baited everything.
Just before we started pulling a 26' whaler with SEVEN fucking divers jumps in and picked all...
I am looking for a way to mount my bait tank the my boat. I would like to be able to remove the tank when not fishing and don't want to leave the L brackets screwed in place.
I also can't have open holes in my boat because it's a whaler and can't fill the foam with water. If anybody has done...
Fished today w Jamie on his famous panga for a 1/2 day. My son turns 7 tomorrow so I want to spend the day with him. Fishing was good like it always is. He caught grouper, snappers, rooster and needle fish.
I will post a full report when I get home. I'm off to grab another beer.
I am flying from Tijuana to Cabo next month and wondering if anybody has carried on surf rods. They break down to 5'.
I like to get up and fish the surf days I'm not on a boat. I have just carried them on with Alaska in the past with no issues.
Thanks I will post a report when I get home...
My dad is on his way home from MT with a dorky forky mike deer.

The deer is already cut into quarters and he just wants it burgered.

Any info on who to fish with near Nadi. I will be there in February. Any gear I should take with me besides the normal stuff I would take to Mexico, hooks, Floro jigs, irons.
Also looking to spear fish I might bring my fins mask and gun.
Looking for a chart that shows offshore oceanside. I have the Baja directions but it does not show the high spots like the 209, it is an inshore chart.
I would like a chart that shows from the 181 to the 267. Can I order one anywhere?
Left the dock at 5 with a 1/2 scoop of decent 6-7" sardines with my father n law and my buddy Kevin.
Ran out about 12 miles and put the jigs in. Slow running out in 3' swell @ 7 sec. Not fun in 17' boat. But you got to pay to play.
Trolled about 1 hour not seeing anything. No birds, kelp...
Fish out of Oside yesterday. Launched at 5 and only one boat in front on me at the bait dock. Tipped the dude and ran 10 miles west. Took a buddy who I grew up fishing trout and largemouth with. He has not fished in about 15 years. Funny as hell to watch him fish with the clicker on 1/2 the...
Trying to find out what this rod is.
I think it is a truline but not sure. What I do know is.
Has a truline emblem in the wrap.
I stripped the cork and can't make out what was written on the blank.
I have 1800 rounds of 223 that I am looking to sell at a fair price. I sold my AR and have this stuff taking up space. I don't know what the going rate is.
I am in Oceanside if you want it. I would like to sell all of it at once.
I just upgraded the fishfinder and had to install 2 transducer's.
The p66 is on the starboard side and I am still playing with the perfect position. When I pulled the old garmin 178c I just used the existing holes hoping I can get it correct without having to add new holes.

First trip outside the harbor after two shake down trips on the new boat. 17 whaler montauk.

I am in San Diego and looking at a boat near Patterson. I dont want to make the trip out there just to see the boat. I am looking for someone to just go to the guys house and take a look at said boat. I just want to make sure the hull is on the shape he says it is. I will have the motor looked...
I'm looking for a 17 whaler montauk with a clean hull. I am ok with an older motor.
Please let me know what you have.
I'm in oceanside and willing to travel a reasonable distance for the right boat.
Fished lake irvine today with my son and my dad.
Launched at 10:30 and off the water by 3:30. Trolled all over the lake for 6 trout. My 4 year old son did really well today and did not lose any fish.
Great weather And even better to spend it with my son and my dad.
We did float power bait...
Made the decision to man up and go to Irvine. Got a late start with a 3 yo who had too much fun the night before trick or treating.
Got to the lake around 1000 launched at the "new" launch ramp. Before I used to get really stoked to get up early and fish all day. Kids sure change things. We...

I emailed Lowrance customer service to see if they had any options on getting all my waypoints from my computer to a SD card.
Basically they told me nothing in a shitty email. Here is a copy. I know it can be done but with no help from them. Never will I purchase another Lowrance product...
I just picked up an Elite 5 DSI. I know I can add a micro SD card to it.
I would like to type all of my GPS #'s on my computer and save to the SD card. It will take way too long to do it on the unit.
Lowrance does have a program but it is not compatible with my Mac.
I just picked up a 15' Gregor and put a merc 15 4 stroke on it. It run great but trolls a little too fast (into the wind 2.8 and with the wind 3.1 mph.)
Wonder if a prop would slow me down enough? Right now I have a 8.9 x 9. I can buy a 4 blade 7 pitch.
I know other option a drift bags but I...
Fished the vine from 1130 - 400 today. Spent most of the time trolling, just easier with a 3 year old. He went 2 for 3. Both fish came on the Spider-Man two foot rod. Looked like lots of the reds coming from the boat launch area today. Most guys were fishing them on power worms or crappie jigs...
Got a late start, launched around 11 trolled most of the day for 4 and got one on bait in the flats.
Had a great time fishing with my son. He is not ready for the offshore shot out yet but he can now cast a zebco almost 30'.
Good luck to everyone this weekend. Hope the mayor and Dusty do well.

Heading out in the morning. I will be in an 18' aluminum. Want to start prefishing for an upcoming halibut tourny. If it gets too windy I will make my way inside and finish off the day fishing bass in the bay. Tides dont look to good. I will be solo and on 72. The Paddy Caddy out.
I am leaving to Montana tomorrow morning at 0300. Last year I took the meat to T and H is San Marcos it was OK but I am looking for something better.
