    CR 8/30 WFO tuna fishing.

    We were out the day before out of 38 miles out of Westport. We went south but I guess not far enough. Struggled to find warm water and fish. Seas were sporty.

    Ice failure

    Thanks for the responses. What confuses me is my last two times out we caught 26 tuna, brought 2 extra coolers of ice and barely touched them. Then on this time we only brought one extra cooler and had this problem. It was a overcast cool day, water was cooler than we wanted so maybe it is the...

    Ice failure

    Made a tuna run yesterday with poor results, rough seas, changing weather, earthquake, ok enough excuses. Anyway our ice in the fish hold didn't last long at all. By 10 am it was all slush. My fish hold lid let too much deck water in and melted the ice too fast. How do you guys water proof...

    Down rigger locks

    What locks do you use for your downriggers or for saltwater environments? My last set of brass Arbus locks lasted about 2 seasons. My next set of titanium lasted 4 weeks. Have to cut them off to get ready for a tuna run. Is there anything that lasts longer?

    I might be wrong, but he fought very hard for a much longer season to get the 2 halibut. Almost like a deer tag. He is very much apposed to the one or two weekend free for all. Cant do much worse than the current status Quo.

    advice on running two downriggers

    We tried this last year. Put a 8lb ball on the aft rigger and a 15 on the forward. Wind, current, and deckhands all come into play. On some days it was great. Good thing anyway is you can use the forward scotty pad for pot puller, and the plug in for electric reels.

    Shurflo Bait / Washdown pump issue

    I am really confused. On my new boat with less than 40hrs of run time, the wash down pump stopped working. Tried everything and just figured maybe I left the switch on??? So since my recent Tuna adventure I decided now would be a good time to upgrade to a bait tank/wash down pump. Just...

I went with them because of the cheaper price, no need for high octane fuel, fly by wire down to 150's, and they are very quiet. I have had several...

    Tablet holder

    For my new boat I am getting the Simrad system with the wifi connection. So my rear helm will be a Ipad instead of a typical display. Does anyone use a tablet in their boat and if so what brand or style do you use that will hold tightly in rough conditions? Thanks
