    How did you get your fishing knowledge?

    I have been fortunate enough to have always known some "old timers", when I lived in Ventura I learned alot from them. And was smart enough to know to shut up and listen to them. I have also learned much from Chris (Baja Dreamer), and some from the guys on here.

    Bringing fish back to the midwest. ??

    Thanks for the offer Ed. I'm still trying to figure out how to make the turnaround time work. I need to find out what time (approximately) the boat returns, and when my guys are flying out the next day. Worse case scenario, I'll just bring them back here, cut/pack/freeze then ship them out.

    Couple of questions about the upcoming B/D 2 day charter (Sep. 15-17). My brother and a good friend of mine are coming from the mid-west to fish this trip. It seems kind of hit and miss with the boats on this length of trip rather or not the deckies cut fish or it's on you. I'm pretty sure...

    if the impeller sits in one spot for an extended period it 'sets' the shape, reducing its ability to pull water and causes your motor to run hotter. run it. always put a little stabil in with your gas too. :)

    proper reel placement on cork tape rods

    Alot of that depends on the weight of the rod, the use, and the build of the fisherman. Big guy like you gets nothing but cork tape. :D But, things to consider; is it gimballed, where do you wear you fighting belt (up high or John Wayne style), how far away from your body is it comfortable...

    proper reel placement on cork tape rods

    My $.02, Grab the base of the rod with your left hand (assuming you're right handed) put your right hand up to a point where you feel you have good leverage on the rod for optimum casting. Put it there. There is no science to it.
