Re: Nearshore Rigs coordinates

I think NAvionics apps also shown the rigs on their map. Not sure how accurate but they do show them.

The condition was perfect with low wind and low waves but Could not find any kings or no hearing any radio chatting on king hookup. :( Que...

Wow, I have the same mirage drive. If you don’t mind to post your fix on this forum for the rest of us to learn. Like where or how to get the parts. Or any pot holes to watch out. Thank you

Re: Fish storage while offshore

Try this fish bag cooler. It will fit most kings.

https://a.co/d/7FVctwE

It’s length is 50”…. Most kings would fit inside.

Re: offshore gear question

It is depending on the target species.
40# braid can take a little longer to bring the fish in if it is a big fish or strong fish.
8’ rod length is a little long for offshore unless he likes to cast top water lures. 7’ is the average length.

Re: Transporting 15.7' kayak

Agreed about using the ladder rack is making more sense (unless the kayak is too heavy like Pro Angler). Because sticking out so far from the truck bed will be more difficult for parking at restaurants or public parking.

Re: Self-powered live well for kayak (hobie in particular)

That is one good idea but also you can build a small hydraulic ram pump which it can continuously run to pump the water uphill without requiring the kayak movement. The hydraulic ram pump is a very old technology that farmer has used to pump water uphill without requiring any external power or elect...

Re: Small cooler with plastic zipper for BTB

Agreed with Wofman. Made two trips out with the Titan cooler. So far, it worked great. I like the one hand operation to open the cooler vs two hands operation with old cooler zipper. Also. Add a small bungee cross over the lid top. The bungee connected to the strap of each side of the cooler. It wil...

Re: Well, This Changes My Plans

Felt your pain since I am in the same boat.
This year weather really screwed up all my plan…. Was looking forward to this weekend as well but no good now with turbulence in the gulf.
Hope to make 1-2 more trips to CC this year before the season is over.
