For Sale / SOLD- 2017 Hobie Outback - $1400
« on: April 05, 2022, 07:51:25 PM »
I got this awhile back to shuttle my kids around inside harbors and flat calm water. 

Whatís the deal?  Why so cheap?

When I got this, it was missing the drive and vantage seat.  No accessories at all.  Iíve added a watersnake trolling motor where the drive would normally go, and just use a pad for a seat.  The brackets for the vantage seat is there, I just donít use it.  Thought about doing the Hobie seat mod but never got around to it. Itís pre-wired for a Garmin FF but that thing died last year.  But the wiring and transducer is still on the boat.  Will throw in a Hobie paddle. 

Donít use it anymore.  Kids getting bigger and not interested on being on the water.  Wanting to free up space before my next house project. 

Pick up in El Cerrito.  Will post pictures tomorrow.


For Sale / Free: (2) Danielson crab traps
« on: January 28, 2022, 10:18:43 AM »
Retiring these two pots.  Multiple seasons on them. Some rust but the box still holds its shape.  Could use a little time rebending some pieces.

Pick up in El Cerrito or I can bring them to CrabFest this afternoon.

For Sale / Ray Trophy Salmon/Halibut rod
« on: December 04, 2021, 03:47:46 PM »
Used it twice.  Not really my style of fishing, too parabolic for me.  Guess Iím not a salmon fisherman. 

Bought new for $89.99+tax/shipping. 


Will let it go for $40.


For Trade / Yakima Mako Saddles
« on: July 31, 2021, 09:56:40 AM »

For Sale / Thinning the herd: Shimano Daiwa rods

Shimano 6í6Ē medium heavy casting - $100
Great halibut/sturgeon rod.
Daiwa Harrier 6í4Ē medium casting - $50
My go-to halibut trolling/drift rod.
Daiwa Procyon 7í6Ē heavy casting - $40

For Sale / FREE: Cast Iron Window weights
« on: January 14, 2021, 11:41:59 AM »
One of my projects in SF has 15 windows which Iím replacing all of them.  Each antique window uses 4x weights, roughly 4lbs each.  Figure they might be good crab pot weights or something that someone could use. 

Free to pick up at the job site near Twin Peaks or at my house in El Cerrito.

For Sale / SOLD: Water Wolf fish cam
« on: October 07, 2020, 10:15:31 PM »
Bought this new last year.  Used it maybe twice.  Worked fine but just takes too much time setting up then editing video afterwards.  Rather spend that time fishing and not worrying about the camera angle. 

Paid $149.99.  Asking $75. 
I have everything except the original box.

For Sale / New Hobie GT mirage drive SOLD
« on: July 16, 2020, 11:48:26 AM »
Bought this as a spare when my v2 drive broke.  I repaired the v2 drive then sold my Ď14 outback.   

This GT Drive is brand new.  Stored in the Hobie bag for a few years.  Just recently found it and I donít need it for my 2020 outback. 

$400 or best offer.  $50 of the sale will be donated to NCKA. 
Located in El Cerrito.

Kayak Diving and Spearfishing / Spearing in the SF Bay?
« on: February 06, 2020, 08:20:57 AM »
Read the regs over and over, but nothing definitive.  I caught so many legal sized halibut in 15ft or less last summer.  I might consider trying it at Paradise or Ferry Point on an absolutely clear day unless you guys tell me otherwise.

Is the water too murky?  Chemicals going to turn me into the swamp thing? 
Why aren't more guys doing it?

Thanks for any tips or advice.

For Sale / 2018 Hobie Compass $SOLD!!
« on: August 24, 2019, 02:53:49 PM »
Bought recently from MooMooís friend in Vallejo.  Only took it out twice and itís not for me.  Though I like how light it is, Iíll be going back to my Outback. 

Selling it exactly how I purchased it a week ago, plus a ram ball mount I installed for my Lowrance.  For an additional $150, I can leave my Lowrance Elite 5x, transducer, and wiring on the kayak. 

Comes with drive and turbo fins, paddles, seat, and kayak cart. 

Or $1650 with Lowrance Elite5x.

Call me 408-204-8400.  First come first serve.  Kayak is on my truck, just got back from Frank Miller event in Richmond.  I live in El Cerrito. 


For Sale / 2014 Hobie Outback - NO LONGER FOR SALE
« on: August 18, 2019, 09:36:12 PM »
Picked up a Compass, which Iíll settle for until I find a Ď19+ Outback.  So my trusty Ď14 is up for sale.  Lots of good memories and fish blood has hit this deck in the past two years Iíve owned it.  Original owner was an older woman in Napa, who peddle leisurely on the Napa River for bird watching.  Picked this up in July 2017, and has been a great kayak for me. 

2014 Hobie Outback
Dune color
Some scratches on the bottom, but never excessive dragging on hard surfaces.  I fish 1-3x per week, so this kayak got a lot of use (Tomales, Paradise, Bolinas, Richmond, Berkeley) but still has plenty of life in her.

Mirage drive with turbo fins
Hobie paddles
Kayak cart
Lowrance Elite5 Fishfinder and transducer.  Already wired.
Ram ball mount for the FF
Scotty flush mounts and Scotty rod holders
Two rear track mounts
Large landing net

Will get pictures up tomorrow. 
Willing to help deliver for a serious buyer.  Can bring it with me to the San Pablo event next weekend.

Good landing nets for whichever species you target. 

Big used landing net - $20
Opening is 32Ē x 25Ē.  Good for salmon, halibut, rays, sharks, etc.  big fish.  Some rust from being used in salt but can easily clean up.  Handle slides to compact down.

Near new.  Opening is 18Ē x 16Ē.  Good for smaller species.  Bass, trout, perch, etc.  Got this is a kayak bundle recently.  Too small for my target species.
