Re: Trip report! Triton X 2016 Oregon represent (part 2)

Awesome report Josh! It's been too long since I've been to Mendocino; thanks for the detailed vicarious experience. Sounds like an episodically wild ride.

Definitely put me on the mailing list for...

Re: Excellent Labor Day Weekend

It was 12-20' of vis if that's what you're referring to. My dives were mostly in the 15-30' range. I pulled some bigger scallops out deeper.

Tom the "minnowzone" in question did get measured....

Look, I understand everyone is gun-shy about the diving in kelp issue considering recent events (which are very tragic).

But to say desirable fish aren't located under heavy kelp mats is simply...

Re: Where can a guy get a 8" ab gage

Just go to the hardware store and get some rod stock that has good rigidity (1/8" or so). Galvanized is cheap. Bent caliber arms to 8" in your bench vise. No big deal. Make 2-3 that are spot on and...

Re: Tolovana Massacre

I often find large cabs have a whitish color. I'm guessing some lose pigment as they age. Or maybe a shift in diet. I find the larger ones typically are a dull gray with white splotches (to varying...

Re: Oregon Rockfish Regulation Changes

My qualitative assessment would say there are plenty of fish in OR.

However, stock management decisions (at least in large part from what I can tell) are being made based on theoretical stock #s...

Re: Tolovana 10/3

That vis is close to the best I've ever seen there. Rare to see SUPers out that far. Nice reminder to always look toward your exit when ascending! Yak fishing is also common there.

Nice ling Tom,...

Nice cabs by all here. But I'm a monkey's uncle if that thing weighed in at 30-35lbs. Unless he was eating rocks of course. Which I wouldn't put past a cab ;). Amazing fish alright. But the current...

MAJOR hostility. I believe I speak for all that the California section drama is unwanted here.
