Well, started the day late. Me and my son's heading down to see Kris (Halibutslayer) at Escondido Cycle Center. After a couple extra hours due to CDF taking 2 lanes of the South bound I15 for no reason, I got there and left shortly there after with a brand spank'n new Honda Generator, DC cables to hook straight to the battery, 4 gallons of salt eliminator stuff and the kit to attach to the boat. All for less than he might want me to put over the net. Kris said he'd hook up Bloodydeckers and followed through.

Very cool. I think I have the logistics on the boat figured out. I figure I'll run it on the engine cover and stash it in the cabin when not in use. It'll be running at night.

Then, it's off to Noah's. Karl (Az Monkey) and I are to swap reels. His SX for my JX. Here's where things go bad. I got to Noah's a little before Karl, he was down helping cut fish for the 8 day that just hit the docks. Anyway, spending time in a tackle shop is just Bad, Bad, BAD! Having two 9-year-olds that fish along just makes it that much worse. Not to mention Kevan is WAY TOO HELPFULL!

Once Karl got there, it was time to spool up the SX. Kevan spooled her up with 50lb JB all the way to the top. My plan was to run 15lb at the most. After breaking out the scale and pull testing a couple of the Teramer rods, it went from 15lb to 20lb. With the drag set around 7.5 lbs, the 12-25lb 8'er looked great, the reel had no loss of freespool and the "Bait" notch was working good. This thing is going to fling jigs a mile. This is the kind of shop I've been missing.

I got some tackle, my kids did some shopping and also ended up with some swag and tackle. I got to see some of the trip pics and got to see CudaKillers ass! I'll tell you what, couple beers and :Lets_do_i :Lets_do_i :Lets_do_i . He's a big dude, I might not hit bottom (no punn intended) but I'll bang the crap out of the sides:rofl: :rofl: . That looked like and hell of a trip! There were also some pics of some of the best birdsnest's I've ever seen. Some of those things had to go 1/4 spool deep!

I go to leave the shop and they wouldn't even let me leave without some fresh YFT from the trip.:appl: :appl:

Long story short, I've added the 8 or so foot topshot of 20lb flouro to the SX, and fired up the generator. That thing is quiet! I bagged up the YFT and had about 1/2lb of sashimi. This place rules.

The kids had a blast but it was a long day for them. I need to get them on the boat. I think an easy trip to Cat is in order. Either that or go looking at the inside banks. I'll decide tomarrow. Now that I have you on speed dial, you can expect some calls on the way to the ramp.

My wife just handed me a plate of grilled albacore ( from the trip with Kris), dill rice and fresh green beans from the backyard. I'm about halfway through the martini (no jokes please) she made me a little earlier. This is a good day.

Yer just pissed 'cause I'm taking the kids out to kill some fish.

I realized I don't have to be home until late Wednesday. Now all I need to find is fresh water on Catalina. Probably the fuel dock or LASO dock. I'll get some. I need it for showers.

I'm hoping they are doing a firework show over there. That should be a good time.

True. I will be sitting in a damn security guard shack cooking in the sweltering desert heat:nopity:

I need water after today's 110 degree weather.

GL with your new Avet. Hope it helps to slays many a finned creature. I know I still want a SX. I'll be picking up 2 of those blue beauties (Avets)tomorrow. Of course none of them are an SX so that gives me an excuse to get one at a later time.
Have fun at Cat.
