Thats a great deal.  I think I paid that much on sale at Mel Cottons 10 years ago.  Too bad its a righty.

I like that Uni/Blood knot, would help to keep the tags out of the way while casting.

Just dont use a wet batter, but some kind of seasoned binder and bread crumbs come out great.

My favorite is just some canned chipotle sauce/peppers chopped up and mixed with some avocado mayo over fresh rockfish cut into taco sized pieces. I have also done some cream cheese stuffed dishes with rolls of salmon and steelhead. And can't go wrong w some butter lemon garlic in a tin foil pack.

I think its 370 F for 12 minutes or something? There is a fish button on mine and I just up the temp a bit. Set it and forget it, super easy and no oil to deal with. best after a long day fishing lol

Davethesynthguy says he prefers leftover conventionally fried fish reheated in the air frier lol.

One of the coolest parts of joining this forum is the search feature at the top right, search any body of water and you can usually find some good insight!

Having trouble getting it to work on the website, but this deal is supposed to run until the 14th so I'll call tomorrow and sort it out.

Getting a replacement hull this winter so will have to start over and mod my outback again, it's definitely the fun part but is a lot of work lol. Ive been using PVC for my nose plate but I'll use your method for the bottom side skids and the back I think. Thanks for the idea!

Wow this is totally reasonable, I was trying to pencil it out earlier and didnt really make sense to buy a crapload of this stuff but this price point is great!

Oh wait, I dont see that bucket sale, just a 20% off when you order 3+.

Back at it again, this time with the nicer kevlar cordage and some cheap SS hooks from amazon, looking tuna worthy tho.

The FB jig guy gave me a killer deal on some keel jigs so I stocked up. Also seeing Eddies collection gives you that itch. I'll be ready to lose some serious gear during our 5-month window next year I guess!

Check out the single bungee mod for 2019+ outbacks, lots of water gets in through where the front bungee straps are connected so its nice to just snip those and seal that area.

on the topic of budget SPJ rigs,

I got the goofish amazon deal that 3$J MADE us all buy, I was pairing it with a 300 size baitcaster that worked great for jigging but I just got the new piscifun SPJ reel (a lefty Valtix) at a discount, then when I received it and it was missing a frame screw so they knocked off another $25 so this think was $100 total! So my entire setup is under $200 lol.

BUT its build a little funky and small, 150 size reel it says with 30# drag at full.

the clicker is also weird, it locks the reel so you can "cut the line". Might be useful for snags but i still just use my thumb.

It does have an auto engage on the lever which is cool but i miss the thumb bar of the baitcaster for ease of jigging and 1 handed operation.

Looks cool tho! You get what you pay for but it's fun and we will see how long it lasts in the salt.

I found a guy on FB that makes flat falls for like 4$ a pop and I just rig my home-made stinger hooks on them. I save all my nice tuna jigs for tuna trips and loose these cheap ones rockfishing. Im just about out now I've probably gone through 20 of the 150g.

Kevin Cummings on FB, nice jigs and custom powder colors.

Also Kaiju jigs on here has tuna grade flat falls and makes nice stinger hooks.

That forward plate looks awesome too for your FF, could probably attached T bolt to that piece as well pretty securely. Thanks for the idea!

Good reminder to stock up now! Or at least get your gear in order.

I did a trip last year and through my research on our search bar ^^ found a member named 4est who really gave me some insight and showed me around up there. Might be worth a message to him if you have any specific questions, he was super helpful!

I tied up a bunch of leaders for salmon fishing and wrapped them around a pool noodle but they all rusted out by the end of the season. My steelhead buddy turned me onto these leader wallets that have like 10 sleeves that ziplock closed and they are awesome. I have 1 for steelhead, one for barbless leaders, and one for ling'/hali.

I shove 3 leaders into one sleeve  organized my line weight or hoochie color and just work through them, nice and compact organization. I also slip some swivels, clips, beads, and maybe some packaged mooching rigs in there too.
