General Talk / Re: OP Kayak incident 6-1
« on: June 02, 2023, 09:19:40 AM »
thats now 6 people rescued there in a little more than 2 weeks wow

i agree it's not good to stigmatize use of CG resources when an emergency takes place. its our responsibility to minimize the risks leading up to it too.  Mr X is home alive and fine; I've not stigmatized any use of CG resources since there were none used; perhaps I've stigmatized overdependence and getting "too comfortable" though.  He acknowledges that some of his assumptions were incorrect and that his path chosen was treacherous and historically an unforgiving route. let's not get carried away with reading into things.

when I see kids launching an inflatable kayak in the bay 30 mins before the wind picks up, I don't just say "well good thing CG will pick em up; putting our resources to work"

look at it like fire prevention... fuses, breakers, grounds, smoke and heat sensors, we have fire extinguishers everywhere, and most importantly, we don't put a fire pit on the living room floor and wait for the Fire Dept to put it out when it inevitably sets the house on fire :)

CA Regulations / Re: Halibut limit decrease
« on: May 31, 2023, 10:06:27 AM »
I'm pretty sure its official as of June 1. MY Question is "what about commies?"  the price for halibut bottoms out at like 6 to 7 a lb and its already there yet ppl still fishing and converting their setups to commie.  They will scrape whatever we don't. they are open year round and have no quota.  we're attacking this from the wrong side i think. I will harvest 10 less fish this year due to the change. a commie will catch an extra 10 fish a day because of this lol

its cool until its not. glad youre alive. glad CG didn't have to spend a bunch of resources recovering you either

Not for food, just for fun. I already have a garden for that.
And don’t worry Eric, I’ll keep my bags outta the pond…haha. Hey there’s a legit cornhole league in Fortuna now—I follow them on FB, Lost Coast Cornhole.

That is so so awesome!!! Cant wait to see pics in a few months after they've gotten their grub on!

very very cool! are these pets or are you doing aquaculture? I had a small fish farm in highschool with 75 lmb and about 50 channel cats. it grew about 350 kale plants every 3 months too.

would this be a decent kayak for slow wide river use? My dad is looking for one for to use on things like big river mendocino

Divers and shore-based anglers are exempt from season and depth restrictions affecting the RCG complex and other federally managed groundfish
(sections 27.20(b)(1)(C) and 27.20(b)(1)(D)).

Not to be anal but because regulations can have many ifs or buts, I always want to confirm from another angle.

Does the above mean if I am fishing standing on a jetty like the HMB jetty, I can catch rockfish all year round and keep them?  Two weeks ago I was there; caught a few rockfish but let them all go because I wasn't sure whether I could keep them.  I was aiming for halibuts.

yes that is still shore-based angling

yes nothing illegal about it. just keep the shell in 1 piece so it can be measured.

bearing buddies are great. Oil bath hubs are even better.

General Talk / Re: Registering kayak with DMV for CF number
« on: May 05, 2023, 03:32:16 PM »
Since we’re on this topic, what happens when you finally decide to sell the kayak and want to keep the motor?? Could you unregister the kayak or is it forever in the system?

I tried to unregister my Hobie Adventure but ended up paid $60 to DMV for disposal  fee!

there's no such thing as unregistering a boat in CA. you just let it go out of registration. disposal fee is when you scrap it- they mark the HIN as such. you may run into issue trying to reg it in the future if you need to. When you sell it you need to release ownership of the vessel on the title that they issued you; its on the back. you need to submit your copy to the DMV, and the buyer submits their half.

General Talk / Re: What to look for in an ocean fishing rod?
« on: May 02, 2023, 02:11:33 PM »
i would buy a Uglystick tiger 8' 12-30lb rod. it will work on a DR, it will haul around a 2.5 ball. its a great live bait and troll hali rod, and it will jig for rockfish. 70 bucks too.

im slowly selling my assortment rods and outfitting my boat with 6 of these setups because they truly do it all so well
