    How often do YOU replace your line?

    I hate posting this question cause my answer would simply be "whenever you feel like it" but I'm doing some reel maintenance and it could add up sooo. Whatcha got? Oh! I'm asking specifically about mono for my salmon rods. I don't care about braid for salmon fishing.

    No Albies..

    We tried for Albacore out of Westport a bit early in the season with no luck, so we changed locale. Lisa and I brought home 17 YFT, 14 Dodo's and a Pompano. We released that many more! It was a fantastic way to end the summer and a trip I won't soon forget.

    Small pilothouse, rod storage?

    One of my winter projects is to arrange some kind of rod hangers in my boat. The ceiling is too small so the walls are the only option. I'm sure I can come up with something, but I figured maybe someone else has dealt with this? Thoughts? Pictures?

    Great Honest Service

    I've been having issues with a leaky tilt cylinder for about a month now and this time of the year all the shops are busy.

    Yami trim n' tilt leak??

    A few days ago I noticed some oil on my shop floor, after some investigation I found that one of the trim pistons had some oil on it. When I tried to tilt the engine up it would not go all the way without my assistance. I assumed the seals had given up on that piston so I ordered a set. Removing...

    Yamaha tilt issue

    On our last outing my main engine got stuck in the full up position. This has never happened before. After cycling the switch for a while it eventually came down.
