    ? AGE OF OLD ROD AND REEL

    Believe it or not, I have never been on e-bay. Geez that sold for cheap!  It looks like like I am not holding onto a goldmine here, but it is neat.  I can see myself spending a lot of money on e-bay...now excuse me while I shop!

    ? AGE OF OLD ROD AND REEL

    My boss was getting rid of all his old fishing stuff that was taking up space in his garage.  I got 1st pick of an old rod and reel which appeared pretty old.  Can anyone help out on approximate age??? The rod is 6' long, with wooden handles.  The rod itself is metal and square, not round.  The...

    Halibut fishing

    I was watching a fishing show the other night where the host of the show went out on a charter boat for halibut.  They launched out of the Berkeley.  Just outside of the marina, in about 12' of water they dropped the poles and dragged them off the bottom.  Soon after they started catching...

    Unbelievable King Salmon fishing!

    Hard to tell just how hot it was out there.  Once you start fighting the fish - you start to work up a sweat.

    Unbelievable King Salmon fishing!

    This Wednesday I read the fishing report out of the Stockton Record.  It reported that the the captain who runs Bodega Bay Sports fishing said it was the best King Salmon he had seen in over 30 years.  I called him right then and there and scheduled a trip for the next day (yesterday).  It was...

    '01 F-150 SuperCrew - pulling a 26' 5,800# dry toy hauler.. advice??

    Joe - I have an 05 Supercrew rated to tow 9,200lbs.  My trailer is just over 5k unloaded.  Some people have so much pride in their tow vehicle they are ashamed to admit their vehicle has problems towing a certain load.  I will be honest here.  I think you will be working your truck an awful lot...

    lake fishing ?

    When I am fishing a lake which has both rainbows and kokanee's like Don Pedro, can I use the same set up for both?  I hear all the time to put a piece of white corn on the hook for the kokanee's.  Will this work also for the rainbows?  I guess what I am asking is that since the 2 are so closely...

    Eastern Sierra trout opener coming soon

    This last saturday I took a drive up to Sonora Pass up 108.  Not in to the stream fishing but I don't see how people are fishing those streams...it looks like a river after a dam break upstream!

    2 lines - 1 downrigger.

    I was at Yosemite Lake in Merced.  Little lake and only about 40' deep.  Used the d.r. to get around 12' down where all the little rainbows were.  I am liking the d.r. thing the more I use them.  Since I can't cath squat in the Delta I have been hitting the lakes lately (Yosemite lake, New...

    2 lines - 1 downrigger.

    Was wondering who out there will hook up 2 poles/lines to one downrigger.  I tried it a few trips ago and got tangled up a few times and had to cut both lines.  I kept the 1st pole connected to the main weight (at the bottom of the cable) and moved up 3' or so and atteched the 2nd. line.  Any...

    Eastern Sierra trout opener coming soon

    Hmmm, I always thought they were bigger. The top of Sonora pass is so darn far away I just can't see myself heading that way again for a long time.  Esp. with gas prices what they are today.  I have always like Pincrest Lake.  Not too far, beautiful lake and surroundings, always walk away with a...

    F150 tow limits

    mcnwill - Overall I am very happy with the truck.  I must admit though I am disappointed with the power, or lack of.  I towed my new trailer about 2-3 times before upgrading to the 150.  My thinking was: much larger engine, 2,000 lbs more towing ability, more torque, horsepower...should = big...

    F150 tow limits

    mcnwill - I am assuming you pulled the pu today and not the 'new' trailer?  If that is the case then of course that truck will pull it with relatively no problem.  I had a Coleman Westlake which was the largest of the Coleman pu's and that was pulled fairly easy by my Tundra.  My thinking is...

    F150 tow limits

    mcnwill - I have an 05 150, 5.4, 3.73, rated for 9,200 lbs.  My trailer is a little over 5,000 dry,, 27' long.  My advise is DON'T do it.  Like earlier mentioned...also think about braking.  Just last weekend I had to lock up the brakes when a car pulled in front of me while I was going about 40...

    Unbelievable! I will try to post a pic.

    Thanks Tom for posting those.  Almost forgot to mention, there were no brakes or lights hooked up either. The sound that poor engine made was just not normal.

    Unbelievable! I will try to post a pic.

    Tom - I tried and it came back "your file is too big.  Max is 256 kb"  What am I doing wrong?

    Unbelievable! I will try to post a pic.

    You will not want to be behind this on the road! Yesterday, I saw a picture of a 27,000 lb, 4 axle, 5 slide, 5th wheel......hooked up to a 1991 GMC 2500! The bottom of the front of the 5th wheel was actually slightly touching the top of the trailer bed.  The back end of the truck was completely...

    Easy trailering with a popup

    Lou- Although I didn't like a lot of things about my PU, I find that I used my PU 3x's as much as I use my current 27'er.  The PU was used about once a month, where as the TT is used about once every 3-5 months :'(

    Porta-bote

    There is a guy on another site who has one.  I asked him about it and he said he loves it..no complaints.  I saw them at a local boat/rv show last year and they are pretty neat.  I am still thinking about getting one.

    A terrible day of fishing!

    It just keeps getting worse! Been going out every weekend now targetting sturgeon.  NOTHING! So I decide to book a spot on a party boat out of Martinez.  I will not name names, but the captain is regarded as the best sturgeon fishermen in Central Ca.  I thought if I don't catch one, at least...

    A terrible day of fishing!

    So...after the boat has been sitting in storage for a month or so, we decide to go out on the Delta and try our luck.  Once in the water we decide to just cruise out about 1/2 mile or so and try our luck.  After about 2 hours w/o a bite, we decide to move elsewhere.  We try to start the motor...

    CA Delta boating advisory

    Karl - I agree 100% but when is anyone going to do something about it?  The Modesto Bee and Stockton Record have both recently printed several front page articles on what devastation would be caused if a major earthquake hit the area.  I am not in a position to make things happen so I guess...

    CA Delta boating advisory

    During the last election, Californians voted down Arnold's prop on State spending.  Now that the majority of Californians believe it is OK to spend more than we bring in (?????????), I don't understand why we just don't go on a big spending spree.  Heck, let's spend 100 million to repair the...
