Video from my solo trip the other day (12/12 - reported same day). 3 yellows in about an hour. Beautiful December day chasing birds and catching nice-grade surface-iron yellows. I love this stuff.

Solo double:



How do you not get bit here??

Fishing videos get me through the winter. Thankfully it looks like this will be a short one.

Enjoy!

Fish porn at it's best, although I was very hesitant to click the link with a title like that.

Great day indeed.

That title thing had me a little worried also.
Was going to say "that poor one guy"
and quickly realized he's enjoying those 2 rods.

The videos themselves, goooood stuff!

Numerous props...
1. Fishing solo
2. Slaying some yellows
3. Solo gaffing at its finest
4. Evidence of why gear gets boat rash...none of that babying your gear.
5. Wearing your P.F.D.(until the last video which is prolly why you didn't get bit. Fish gods were looking out for you).

What happened to the section of rail missing in the bow? Looks like you made it that way.

I bought the boat from the original owner (or the bank that took it from him rather) with a trolling motor on it. The rail was cut out to accomodate.

You almost lost a rod on that double. The reel kept it from falling over the side.
Nice job

Yeah, I think it looked worse on video. Wasn't really ever in danger of going over, but even I flinched when I watched the playback....

I always wear my PFD solo, but I think I took it off with my sweatshirt when I got hot, but got distracted by a spot of birds that popped up right off my bow. It went back on later. The good news is, there were so many boats, if I had fallen overboard someone could have free-gaffed me within seconds.....

I only baby my OG gold Trini's, which are all mint. The rest of my gear gets used hard, but kept very well-maintained mechanically.

    Theirs a great place that could fix it for you if you want, It's called "The house of stainless" it's in Gardena, Ca. He's reasonable (Yen) and does great work. He just built me a custom dive ladder ( scuba diving) for my boat and It came out bitchen.
