Wanted To Buy / Re: Got a steelhead rod or two you’d like to part with?
« on: February 12, 2019, 05:13:11 PM »
I have a Daiwa 9'0 or 9'6" casting rod for steelhead.  Looking to get $30 for it.  Definitely used but have caught plenty of fish on it.  It's been in storage for about two years now since that's how old my kid is now and the last time I went.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Lowrance elite 7 ti2 question
« on: February 10, 2019, 08:25:02 PM »
I have the elite 7 Ti and use a lithium battery setup that I made myself.   Ran the wires and made the looms myself.  I think it cost about $75-80 in the end, and the battery easily lasts 2 full 5-7hr days depending on what I have one and brightness settings. 

The lithium battery doubles as a battery pack for my phone or computer.

Maybe Loch Lomond?

Couple of us here today and the weather was not great, but not terrible.  Each of us are going home with something, but not limits and jumbos that I saw during Crabfest just 2 weekends ago. 

Friday is suppose to rain as well.  If you go out, then watch the wind, rain, and current.

Good luck.


Pretty good chance that I'll be there.

Great event Victor.  Thanks again for hosting and to all the sponsors for the swag and donating to an awesome cause. 

My wife, Mrs SimplyCook, had tons of fun and she won 3rd place.   I went out one more time after the potluck/prizes and pulled up a 7.3" and 7.2" dungies.  Measured and verified by Victor!  I wanna see those pics Vic.

Kicking myself in the butt.  There's always next year!
Thanks everyone for another great event.  My wife is psyched to come back next year.

General Talk / Re: LED replacement bulbs for headlight?
« on: January 27, 2019, 07:51:08 AM »
  Truck is a 2002 Dodge ram 2500LB CTD 4X4 I watched a bunch of YT's already I currently have
Sylvania Silverstar Ultra bulbs and there both dim and Yellow.  Definitely need (Want) something a lot more white!  Didn't see anything about not putting LEDs into Halogen reflectors (Funny how that is?  Why I'm asking about them now... Thanks for the info, I had thought about HID prior to these but since I've converted all my Mag lights to LED thought the truck could benefit as well.

No one said you couldn't put LED bulbs in a reflector housing, factories make them because they'll sell and make a profit.  They don't care about the lighting quality, beam dispersion, and safety of others.  In a metropolitan area, I wouldn't do it because you are needlessly blinding others in front of you.  If you live in an isolated area, with no one else around, then it probably won't be a problem. 

I dont know much about your vehicle, but I'm sure their are other Ram owners and enthusiasts who have done an HID mod with good success.  I'd consider something like this:

Yes, please do not put LED bulbs in a reflector housing.  It may "appear" to put out more light, but the light actually scatters wider and will blind incoming traffic.

Either stick with 9004 bulbs, here are some really good ones, though not super cheap:
- PIAA Xtreme White Plus.
- Sylvania Silverstar Ultra.
- Philips CrystalVision Ultra.

Or do an HID or Projector conversion to your housing AND get HID/LED bulbs.

I'll be making Okonomiyaki.  Will throw in some fresh dungeness crab and bacon, if I can get some crab in the morning.

If you go over to Tomales, there's plenty of big rays, sharks, and angel sharks.  Maybe a stray striper.  Halibut and Ghosts are out of season but you never know.
