    Sliding sinkers gather debri if the drift is too fast , we still fish those when in shallow water with very little drift , when the wind picks up we use a crane swivel to a 3 way and its fishes great , I was never a trap rig person and dont think any of the Bingham boys have ever used them as...

    Is Yeti worth the cost ?

    I've had mine for years now , it all depends how much you use it to spend that kind of money , if you want a better price on one order it thru Austin kayak and get 10 to 20 percent off , I have 4 different sizes and would never buy anything else
  578. M

    Would you use Salt Away for your reel?

    I use a product called real magic , I fresh water rinse the gear , dry off and put real magic on the guides and reel , works great , you can order one line or buy at Walmart

    Be Careful Out There

    Somethingisn't right here, speed and ignorance had to play a part in this , ten knots at night , 2 sets of eyes on the helm and 2 mile radar alarm if you have one , operators error for sure , guys dodged a bullet for sure

    Fishing By the Bait Recievers??

    Drift for halibut is good sometimes on incoming tide, also spotted bay and sand bass
  583. M


    Pretty harsh statement there , how much money are you sending too feed starving children ? Yeah that's what I thought , the big zero, countries working together to save a species is a good thing ,
  584. M


    This is all uncharted waters on what they are doing, it's a last ditch effort to save the little guys , it's a learning experience for all involved and God hope it's a positive outcome

    I'm going to try and be home to fish it this year Mike, it's been a while , time to round up the team

    Greedy SOBs

    Regardless of what happens , the outcome will be the same , California's solution is when in doubt charge more , stick it to the consumers

    Poached hard by divers.

    The last time I checked, poaching is against the law period , no if ands or buts , go find your own , don't go near the water if you see boats hooping , find a new area , Sunday night san diego bay jetty 2 boats had divers in the water , respect it l moved on to a different spot , had a great...

    Really ? A packed boat and no one saw them , I don't believe that for a second , they were to busy fishing

    Distress calls yesterday 9/15 Southwest of Coronado Islands

    Man that's a bunch of bullshit right there , it's a obligation to help any one in need if you are able to do so , who ever the sport boat captain is and boat needs to be learned and sent a message that nothing is more important than saving your fellow fisherman
