    Do I have a cylinder/compression issue on my 1980 Johnson 9.9?

    If you can start it and keep it running (30 seconds or less) by pointing an unlit propane torch at the carb, it's a fuel issue. Poke fishing line in all the fuel passages to make sure they are not obstructed. Get a screen based fuel filter at O'Reilly AP or a mower shop.

    Old yellow glass blank ?

    Probably wrapped by Mike Kolb or "Freddy" from DJ's bait and tackle in Hermosa Beach. Late 80's/early 90's.

    Want to fish Channel Islands. Boat/Landing suggestions?

    Santa Barbara landing: They ask you to dump your fish on deck, or wait for a decky. They sack your fish so you don't go "over boat limits". My FIL watched last time, and some largies got diverted to crew sacks at the edge of the tank with no numbers. Quality is there. Just mind your fish.

    Creative ways to hide fishing related purchases

    Offshore 412 pound BFT!! Wow!

    Anyone feel free to correct me on the details, but some 5 and 600lb fish were netted off of the yellow banks in the 80's. Bigger fish still waiting out there.

    Old Favorites

    They still make those rebels. Cast-a-bubble water bobbers. The ones that bounce and don't crack. Knock off diamond jigs that didn't break the bank, and came in mackerel sizes. And Scroungers. Especially with the silver tail. Those things took care of business.
