    Ice packs and cooler bags

    I have 6 of the Tundra packs and these type of blue ices have changed the way to keep fish or game cold or frozen. West Marine doesn't make anything I'm sure the Tundra company makes theirs and puts their brand on it.

    How many processed bags of tuna will fit in a 100 quart cooler?

    Use dry ice but take some cardboard to put between the fish and dry ice to prevent cold burning the fish. Put the dry ice on top of the stack of fish as the cold will sink to the bottom. If the fish is frozen it's 0 degree's, ice is 32 degree's your warming your frozen fish. If you insist on...

    The end of TR1 BioySoy

    I've ran my TR-1 bought in 2004 to 2020 without any problems at all. Finally died after 16 years of hard use. I replaced it with another TR-1 and that's been fine as well but only 2 years old. 99 percent of it's use is in salt water trolling for salmon. I take care of my equipment though and...

    Kill bag for big game?

    Instead of ice I bring an Engel 120v/12v, freezer/refrigerator cooler and freeze Tundra blue ice packs. The Tundra's freeze down to zero degree's so I rotate the 5 pounders every 12 hours when needed. Doing this I have frozen elk quarters solid in 2 days without the worry of melting ice.

    How much time do you get on the wash down for a quarter? I always study the jaws before I go out we have some brutal ones up North here where if you don't pay attention you die. Thanks for the heads up.

    Recs for non-chamber style vacuum sealer?

    I have had VacMasters for over 20 years and have sealed 1000's of bags. The one I have is the model 305 and isn't the chamber type as I use it in our travel trailer and the chamber one is too big to travel with. Everyone that we know that had a Foodsaver broke and was thrown out. About the...

    Thanks for the heads up but I'm a 35 year in the trades plumber. Been in a few discussions where a 18 inch aluminum pipe wrench brought the conversation around to my way of thinking. Don't think I would be going to his shop anyway but I WILL be going to a nicer place that another Mark owns...

    I'm coming down to your neighborhood in May and have the same stuff to give a youngster that is starting out. Let me know and I'll bring it, at 70 I'm not going to use it any more. Let me know.

    Since I got great advise from you all about where to launch I thought I'd ask for advice again. I'll be launching out of Sunset boat launch can somebody tell me where I can get the important items? Ice either bulk or 20 pound bags in stores close by, gas dock, Taco stands or restaurants, grocery...

    Need Guidance on a 30 Year Old Fuel Tank - 24'Skipjack Fisherman

    You could alway's pressure test it but I would call the manufacturer and let him tell you what you should do. You could if you decide to keep it installed get a turkey baster with a length of clear tubing and suck up those pieces of the bottom.

    Navionics 912P+

    You are right I talked to the Navonic's rep and they said the same thing keep what you have on the chip but no updates until you re-subscribe. It's worth the re-subscribing.

    Navionics 912P+

    I just bought the 912p+ and here's the difference. The 912p covers Washington, Oregon and California but the California map cover south to just about Catalina Island and NO farther south. The 912p+ covers ALL of California plus Baja so if you want map coverage of Catalina and San Clemente and to...

    Navionics 912P+

    Bought the same one for my Lowrance HDS unit from West Marine for $385. When you buy a new one you get 1 year of updates with it that you download off their website. After the year is up too have pay for the yearly subscription to continue to receive updates. The updates are worth the money...

    Watch a youtube channel called"Born Again Boats" they're in Florida (the name is from they take old boats and make them seaworthy again). He has a video on how much it will cost on a project boat there doing which will give you a ballpark on your hull. My 2 cent guess is all of $50,000.

    Another young boat owner in need of some help

    One thing I always do when I launch is snap a 5/8s line 50 feet long to the front winch eye on the bow. Then stow the rope over the anchor pulley then tie off on a cleat tight then stow the rest of the rope. The reason is IF you stall and need a tow before you wash up on the rocks your ready to...

    Fishing In Mesh?

    You must be reading Brandon Haywards books on Southern Cal fishing. I've read 3 of his books and your spot on about the SoCal slang but if you read the context of the sentence you can usually figure it out. It's like Valley Talk in Frank Zappas day.

    This happened about 15+ years ago up North at Shelter Cove. There was a party boat fishing for rockfish that kept catching these huge Yelloweye rockfish throwing them back to float away.

    A good chest freezer cover is one made for a swamp cooler. They come in different sizes and available in canvas or plastic tarp material. I have the canvas one as they're waterproof.

    Would be nice if when you click on an article that it would open full size on the screen without your BloodyDecks header at the top making it too cluttered. Another thing is how long are we going to see the "Must read this about changes to site"? I like the new layout so it's not all complaints...
