    Yeti and its anti 2A position

    So it seems that Yeti has recently caved to the liberal mindset and dropped any business with the NRA claiming gun ownership is bad. Maybe it's time we speak with our wallets and tell Yeti to go kick rocks. RTIC has stepped up and made their pro-2A position know besides making an awesome...

    San Quintin general questions ?

    So, I've been wanting to fish SQ for several years but 2018 looks like it might be the year it finally happens. Looking at last week in March (not really flexible w/ the date). Possibly spending 4 days there w/ 2 days fishing or even 5 days there w/ 3 days fishing. Plan to drive down in an SUV...

    My visit to Bob Sands Tackle (Van Nuys)

    I live in Downey about 35 miles from Bob Sands Tackle. So needless to say with L.A. traffic, I've never been to the shop. On Saturday, my wife had a function in Panorama City so drove her over to her thing while I escaped to Bob Sands. I had contacted Jamie and gave him a heads up that I...

    Mexican fishing permits

    So I'm thinking of just buying an annual Mexican fishing permit to use on the 2 to 3 day boats out of SD rather than paying each time. Good idea or not? Also, are Mexican annual permits good from Jan to Dec (like in the US) or one year from time of purchase?

    MAK-10 and Phenix

    I just bought a MAK-10SEa and did a fit check on a CS GF700H rod w/ reel seat I have. I could not use the bolts (or reel seat clamp) with this rod because the gap was not wide enough to clear the reel seat. Anybody know if it is possible to mount the MAK-10 on a PHD-809XH and still use the reel...
