    April on the Central Coast

    Hey "Frozen" Great report. I can testify as to the tough wind and wave conditions -really going back to December - on the north coast. My hat's off to you for doing battle and coming up with some great looking fish. Love the "cab and chips" pictures!

    More Than You Want To Know About Currents & Tides

    Some favorite rods...

    What better way to honor James Liu than to fish the rods that he created? Who better to use them than the founder/author of PFIC? Every fish caught using those rods would be that much more special.

    Powerbait for opaleye?

    Has anyone tried Power EGGS? I don't see why peas can catch perch but Power Eggs wouldn't. Just a thought.
