Hooped Lake Long Beach again last night. Launched at 4 from Davies under grey skies, a little rain and thunder in the distance. Water was the choppiest I've ever seen it in Alamitos Bay. Got out to the channel and decided to go for it. Big swells at the channel entrance. Headed straight for bait barge and shelter of the break wall. Cruised along the wall, while my crew baited up, in the rain. They are hardcore. Went to our spot and made a drop. After a long soak, we pulled up 3. Good start. Weather settled down and we had the whole harbor to ourselves almost. Only saw 2 other boats. Gail Force was working out there. Hope they did good. We hooped till 12 and caught 14 lobster and 6 crabs. Only 1 or 2 shorts. Wasn't wide open, but a good night. Didn't hit any debris. Water was dirty!

Dan, no radar yet. Want to upgrade Chartplotter, radar, fish finder, but before I do that it's going to be a steering upgrade.

Thanks you. New helm pump and addition of power assist. How's your project coming along?

I have the bay star helm pump and wheel that came off my boat if you can use it. The boat is done with the exception of electronics, which i'm currently installing. I have had it out a few times. I runs great and sips fuel.
