    Any interest in PFIC Get Togethers?

    "mid September Benicia Salmon fishing " I'd be down for that. But if you intend to go to Dillon Point, of course we might not all fit there! LOL

    Robbery at Port Hueneme Pier

    Wow... I was fishing alone on the La Jenelle jetty two nights before that (11/10). The full moon and calm weather made me think it was OK but I was a hesitant because there might be thugs... Guess I was lucky. I hope the authorities will get the word out and fishers will be safe out there. I...

    Gray Laws on White Sharks

    A well written article but it's too bad the author will never get those two hours of his life back. Why? Because he all but insisted (between the lines) that if you "cannot NOT" target GWS, then all fishing activity that could hook one should be outlawed. He could have just said that ;)

    Does anyone have experience with Okuma rods

    I, too, always check Amazon reviews on any product before purchasing and then weight the odds. I bought an Okuma Tundra combo (10' MH rod with size 6000(?) spinning real) for $50 in 20-17 and thus far only a line guide eye has popped off at some time unknown. I glued it back in place. The combo...
