    She didn't sink...

    Instead, she ran like she was just built yesterday. As some of you may know from months back, I have been working on a 1978 21' Fiberform walk around/cuddy cabin. I Had to outsource some of the major engine and outdrive work, but was able to finish the rest myself. She ended up being a...

    I need a trout pole...

    So, I am in the market for a light tackle option for both inshore and offshore. I already have 2 great offshore rigs, the smallest being an 8' Shimano Teramar TMC80MH paired with a Diawa Sealine 20. I love this rig the most for offshore because it is light and has great action. I also have a...

    A thought about fish management

    So since I was a kid taking Marine Biology in high school, I have questioned our approach to fishery management. Being a fan of Wicked Tuna, it makes me think even more, how our idea of taking only the big boys isn't such a great idea. If we take the majority of the large fish, who produce...

    1978 Fiber Form, 21ft

    Hey everyone, and welcome to my new project! I just picked this up from the previous owner's house yesterday evening, and have actually had time today to go through the owners manual and paperwork (every bit of it, dating back to the original bill of sale). The boat itself has been dry for 5...

    Trolling Techniques

    So here it goes: my buddy and I have been fishing offshore on his 19.5 ft Mako CC that he bought last year. We went out on Monday and were able to hook up on a single YFT on the troll, but being that there were only 2 of us on the boat, we found there was a lack of manpower to effectively get...

    PB, Coronado Islands 6/30

    Finally got out on the water with some friends and well, we got what we have been searching for. We took off from shelter island around 8:45 am, a bit later than we normally head out. We headed to the bait dock to try and catch some macs, and had no luck. The bait receiver only had medium...
