Re: Northern Channel islands at dawn of human history

If you liked that read I recommend looking into the history with the lone Indian woman of San Nic Island. An incredible story to say the least. Another interesting tale is of the Frenchman that lived...

Re: newbie gear and fish choices

I am a far cry from an expert but IMHO gearing up is only the half of it. Equally or even more important is being able to recover your fish. Unless you're feeding them your "special" brownies, no one...

Re: Boating Near Beaches

I have not. Every beach will fall under local jurisdiction so as far as I can tell there is no general rule for Ventura County. If you know what beach you wanted to get in close to, you would...

Re: Drilling Harded Spring Carbon Steel Shafts - Heat Treatment?

This is not the preferred method but I used it to drill a shaft I shortened for a smaller hole gun.

I put the ended of the shaft over a propane burner, one you would use to deep fry a turkey in...

Re: Big Sur Conditions (12/29 - 1/2)?

If spearfishing isn't your priority try Jade Cove just a few miles south of that campground. Easy hike in, protected cove and has gorgeous reef.

If you want fish just pick a spot holding kelp...

Re: Boating Near Beaches

No fish but guaranteed limits of beach truffles down by the houses, just look for spots that have heavy dog traffic. :D

Re: Boating Near Beaches

Thanks for the info. Seems like a general rule of thumb and areas that get a lot of use may have local law that could definitely be more restrictive. I got an email back from the parks service after...

Boating Near Beaches

Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough but I can't find anything that clearly describes rules/regulations to boating near beaches, specifically Ventura County.

For example, if I wanted to pull in...

Correct me if I'm wrong but even...

Re: Threaded inserts for reel mount

I want to say the west marine ones are 316 but they are about $10 a pop rather than under $2. Price probably isn't a big deal on a reel mount but I have over 50 of these in my boat and just couldn't...

Re: WSB Picture Thread

Sorry bro, I'm pretty picky about who I welcome to my spots and the CIH dock is no exception. Center slot is all kooks, locals can dive the slots to the left or right.
