    Stingray -edible?

    Goofing around at the boat slipped in MB and thought I'd get a line wet. Threw a strip of fresh frozen squid on a #2 hook off the back. Hoping for a bass, rod goes bendo and is peeling line. 20 minutes later I pull up the biggest stingray I've ever seen in my life. Thing had to be 6 feet...

    So Cal boat slip for 30' to 35' boat, cost $$$$$

    Also need to factor in maintenance costs of a 100% slipped boat. If you can trailer it out when needed and do your own wrenching save big $$$ versus a ship yard haul out. Slips don't allow you to do much maintenance on the water. To me, this is the biggest detractor of an untrailerable boat...

    NMEA 2000 Fuel Management

    I have a 2009 Mercruiser 5.7L and a Lowrance HDS 7 Gen 2. With the motor being computerized, do I also need to buy the Lowrance fuel flow sensor? Or does the motor comp already measure fuel rate and I just need to plug in the NMEA 200 backbone?

    So Cal boat slip for 30' to 35' boat, cost $$$$$

    We slipped ours in Dana Point last season and Mission Bay (Marina Village) this year. MB is $75 per month cheaper. But it depends on travel distance from home and where you want to fish if it's worth a little extra $$

    It would be interesting to hear a captains perspective on giving the JP to deckies vs straight tipping. Personally I think they should be kept separate

    if you had 250K to spend on a wet-slipped fishing vessel in San Diego..

    First, as you've probably already noticed, the Pacific is much colder than Florida. And it isn't going to get much warmer this summer (maybe 5-10 degrees). So it's your call on how cold & wet your comfortable with. Second, do you plan to do any overnights at the local islands? Check out...
