    Tuna water?

    Question for the So Cal guys. In Northern California our offshore fishing consists pretty much of albacore and a rare dorado or other stray warm water fish. The fishing for albacore consists more or less of fishing the warm water break, usually + - 35 miles out and about 59° temp. No one ever...

    Transducers again

    I just did an upgrade on the electronics that came with the boat I bought a few months back. I guess this stuff was pretty decent when it was new in 2006 but it currently is left wanting by today’s standards. I don’t have enough for a full blown chirp system until 2021 so I’m doing an...

    SOLD 12" 6 lug brakes for sale

    These brakes were on a new trailer that moved my boat from SC to CA. The use going cross country is minimal as its all highway miles. The brakes have never been dunked in water, salt or fresh. I replaced these brakes with all stainless steel, the reason for selling. They come off of a magic tilt...

    My White Bottom

    Thinking about keeping the boat in the water for a day or two maybe up to a week. Is this an issue with a white bottom IE no bottom paint. Is there any reasonable time limit and what are the consequences of being in the water just a little too long.

    I'm re rigging all my fishing tackle in the winter time in preparation for this years fishing (Private boat). I've always used the Mustad 7982HS-SS, double hook, for Albacore trollers but recently I read an article that someone was using 7691s. The reason given for the 7691 was easier/quicker...

    DPX2 reviews

    I'm considering updating my accurate reels (665H, B2-870, ATDs etc,etc...) to DPX2s & topless ATDs. I'm cool on the ATDs but I'm finding virtually no consumer reviews on the DPX2s. I know they are relatively new so I'm not sure if they have been thru a full fishing season/year thus generating...

    ACR wiring

    Not sure if I got this ACR wiring right (see the attachment), electricity is just not my bag. As an alternative should it be wired in between batteries 1 & 3? The idea, of course, is to charge both banks from one source. This will be hooked up to a VP D6-350 with a 115amp alternator and 4...
