Re: Anybody have any friends at the Tax Assessors office?

That strip of land at the end of the county maintained right of way is actually owned by someone & is not an easement.

Sounds like you need to reach out to them about the access.

5/0 circles. I also had 4/0 for that day, but never needed to tie one on. Used a 4000 size Sedona with 20lb braid tied to 40lb flouro.

I threw artificial everything for about 2 hours & then switched to live shrimp & was hooked up on the second shrimp.

Re: mounting 2 ride 135s on xterra?

I have an Xterra & thought that if I ever carried 2 kayaks I would just tie down 2 long 2x4's across the top to give me the width that I would need. Then run my tie down straps over the kayaks and under the rack. That would hold everything in place.

Re: UTB this weekend?

I fished out there last weekend.... How 'bout some poon?
Had a pair in the 3-4 foot range hanging out near the mouth. Had one blow up my Poppa Dog.

Re: Aquadream Hooks - part 2

I know this may not be the answer for some of us that have lost a hook on the first throw, but for those that may have gotten some decent mileage out of their spoon before the hook gives up. I suffered a lost fish due to the broken hook at the eye on the Aquadream Pin fish spoon I received during a ...

Re: Kingfish tackle

What's the consensus on buying pre-rigged stingers vs. making your own? How many in what varying sizes would you keep with you?
