    Barrracuda Spotted

    Didn't. We fished HARD for 3 days to land 1 keeper. We did have a great time staying out on Lopez though. Was there a Hewes Craft convention going on? At last count I had 9 that day. Great picture Geoff!

    Kicker comparison Prokicker vs. Yamaha

    I have owned both and prefer the Yamaha. I really liked the straps on the merc that kept the motor straight when tilted up but I wasn't a fan of the integrated shifter throttle. I had a catastrophic failure occur, for some reason the engine got stuck in a high idle. When we twisted the handle it...

    Agreed! All this mad scientist stuff is insane and time consuming. But! If you only have a 4hr window I totally get all the effort. The pellets alone will catch them and you can soak the pots longer.

    I built this to be super sturdy and so I could remove it but I haven't had a reason to.. These pics are from when it was under construction. I added a spring stop and a a door catch

    F'ing chipmunk

    Cats can be pretty amazing. I once responded to a call, this lady had a rat come out of her toilet, she had it trapped in a spare room. My buddy saw that she had a cat. We took that cat into the room and as soon as he put it down that fucker beelined right for the place where the rat was hiding...

    Using decent devises while halibut or bottom fishing

    Call it out! My wife snapped this one as I was opening the jaws of my Seaqualizer. Once it was released we never saw it again. These devices work great and easy!
  173. Barracuda1


    I don't normally do the "Venting" posts but WTF! August has always been my favorite month of the year for salmon fishing and now it's gone. Probably for good! Who knows? They could just decide this is the answer and it's gone forever. Sorry! just sitting here looking forward to the summer season...
  174. Barracuda1

    Has anyone seen this pic?

    Shit. I like rock fish as much as anyone but if it's orange, it's going back. I don't need that drama for a fish. Especially when they got a dock full of halibut.. Dumbasses!

    Hali June 6th in MA2

    Yay! Might as well fish in a bucket at home... There's no halibut in the straights this late IMO. Sorry. I suppose I should be grateful to our DFW benefactors but we need the season to begin earlier not extended later. At least we have a chance right?

    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.

    I'm actually in the same dilemma right now. I used the tie-down product in the past without regret but I'm interested in some opinions as well. Also interested in how many seasons these units are good for? My trailer is a 2013 so these got a solid 4-4.5 seasons. Does that seem right?

    Yamaha F115 Help

    Salt water boat? Tim covered it all pretty good. I would definitely spend on a new thermostat. I had the f115 on my last boat and it was bullet proof.

    Who had trouble at the launch ramp in Ilwaco?

    Takes me back to my tow truck operator days... Almost all of these kinds of recoveries involved a bunch of sidewalk supervisors telling you how to do what your getting paid to know. Boat ramp stupidity is my favorite

  498. Barracuda1

    New Orleans in Sept. Whatcha got?

    Unfortunately so far my research put the rigs slightly out of my budget for this trip... Unless I find a one hell of a deal. Also, there's only two of us and we would only be fishing one day.
  499. Barracuda1

    New Orleans in Sept. Whatcha got?

    I'm always on the lookout for either Frank! Looks like Red's, Sheephead maybe Black Drum on the menu.

  521. Barracuda1

    Yami 9.9 Trolling speed control

    I don't have any accessories on the kicker. It starts and runs fine even at idle, the friction screw holds great. We set our troll speed and a second later it speeds up or slows down requiring constant adjustment. Annoying as F...! Thanks for the replies boys! Sounds like it needs a proper carb...

    Does the Yamaha T9.9 have power tilt problems?

    I've owned three. This last one had to have the tilt motor replaced twice. It seems there was a defect in the motor case that has been corrected. IMO Yami is the best for longevity hands down! I got the Y.E.S Extended service warrantee, Worth every penny.
  525. Barracuda1

    Yami 9.9 Trolling speed control

    I thought about that but this motor is under warranty. I'm not sure about tweeking on it myself. Maybe I'll just swap out filters and run the piss out of it. If that doesn't do it then just bite the bullet and take it in.
  526. Barracuda1

    Yami 9.9 Trolling speed control

    Having trouble hitting that "sweet spot" and maintaining it. This is not a new issue, It's been like this for some time. Just getting sick of constant adjusting of the throttle. The motor runs and starts great. What do you think? Fuel? Filter? Adjustment? Need some real advise not speculations...

    Bait tank photos

    Defiance install. It was on the boat when I purchased. I thought a bait tank would be in the way there, but I found that people are usually at the rail anyway. It doesn't seem to interfere with anything we got going on so my opinion is a permanent tank is a better option.

    Westport Tuna Final Attemp 9-24-17

    What? You mean you'll have to survive on Marlin, Ono and Mahi instead of Albacore? Poor guy.. ;) I didn't score any down there either this season. I'm really torn when it comes to towing down there. So simple to jump on a charter but I would like to experience it at least once on my own boat...

    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.

    Knee Replacement Time - Any Ortho Recommendations?

    Definitely one of the strangest requests on BD I've ever read.. My in-laws had this done and it changed their lives for the better. Good luck and I wish you a quick recovery.

    Late Report MA13 pic heavy

    That's awesome. Have never taken the time to jig for salmon myself, but it looks like fun. One of these days I'll give it a go.

    Salmon for Soldiers roll call

    Nick and I had a great day with veteran brother's Joe and Mike. Like most, we got a shit ton of smalls a coho to weigh and the occasional nook. These guys we're really quick learners on running the gear and wanted to do as much as possible. We gave them full reign of the deck and they did well...

    Theft on Float 12

    What kind of lowlife does that? That's crazy

    Salmon for Soldiers roll call

    Fantastic day! Our two vet's are brothers. (I'll post pics later) These guys fit right in with my crew and had a blast. I'm really proud to have done this event and I'm looking forward to next year.
