General Talk / NCKA Holiday Hoedown -Covid 19 Edition
« on: November 22, 2020, 08:07:12 AM »
Before his passing, Antonio/CDM/CabezaDeMartillo asked me to retake the reigns on the Southbay Holiday Hoedown to keep the tradition alive......and.....THE SHOW WILL FUCKING GO ON!!!!

Obviously most of the state is some sort of lockdown and I’m not amongst the privileged ruling class that is presently ignoring the mandates by hosting birthday parties and traveling to Hawaii......so, for legal purposes and general safety concerns,  an actual gathering is a no no.

Since the plebeian masses are limited to lame Zoom versions of a party, I’m thinking of hosting the always popular White Elephant via Zoom....and hopefully not have it be so lame lol. 

This is obviously going to take more coordination than years past.  We’ll also need everyone to virtually show up and commit to shipping their gift to the winner.  For this reason we’ll have to limit to established members and about 25 to start.

Who’s in?

1. Fishcomb
2. Archie Marx
3. Fisherman X
4. Coho Joe
5. Bob
6. Dangalang
7. Crash
8. Pole pole
9. Yakuza
10. Sailfish
11. SinCoast
12. Blue Jeans Brian will make a once a decade appearance!!!
13 P-Sherman
14 agoodhi
15 Eric B

Edit: Details

Date: Tuesday, December 22nd 
Time:  7:00 PM
Zoom Invite:  Working on this one, not sure if the free 40 minute conference call will work for this.  If anyone has a Pro Account, please let me know.....If not I may be getting my own depending on how many people get in on it.   

Gifts:  Lets try to keep value between $10 and $20, I'm sure no one will complain if you go over.  Traditional gifts have been fishing related:  tackle, apparel, kayak gear, art work.....but non-fish related gear is welcome so long as its creative and somewhat relative.   

Gift doesn't have to be wrapped, per se, but it should be concealed so you can reveal it when its picked. 

The Game:  I'll try do a live draw to assign numbers.  We'll go in sequential order, Participant will have 1 minute to select a gift to unwrap/reveal or steal something chosen by another.  Whoever's gift is chosen will reveal what it is. Gifts are locked after the second steal.  I'll be keeping a scoreboard to track gifts. 

Side Raffle:  Antonio asked that we have an annual recurring gift; winner would take ownership of it for the year, use it, and then turn it over to another winner at the following year's Hoedown. I will raffle it off at the end. Presently working on the CDM gift. 

Settling Up: I'll be tracking who gets what and from whom.  I will provide the list and Receivers will be responsible for contacting Gifters to exchange shipping/drop off info.

If anyone has any feedback, comments, suggestions, please speak up.

How many rubber bungee cords do you use to strap your yak down?

You probably missed it because antonio called it "ncca hookup on 8/16" ....which caught nobody's attention, not surprising from a guy who catches no fish.....hiyo!

If you're in the south bay area and got some free time to kill a lung or swig some swill this thursday stop by west coast cigars.  Like the other thread described it, the place is chill, a workingmans joint and not swanky enough to give cdm the stinkeye for showing up in a hawaiin shirt, shorts and knee high socks.....with flip flops.

Come one, come all!

And in case you really did miss it.....

Craftsmen's Corner / Homebuild Rods
« on: May 08, 2018, 12:12:54 AM »
Ive had an alps rod wrapper sitting in a box since sometime last year.  Picked up a couple blanks at the ISE show in sac back in february so I figured its time to get off my ass and get to building.  Have a couple rods that I stripped and re-wrapped for practice, learmed enough to build my confidence.

First build:

Senko Rod
Phenix mx78mh
Alps split grip, tex touch barrel and hood
Composite cork split grips
Alps gold wind checks
Fuji alconite guides.
FishHawk Metallics, greens and gold,
single axis chevrons.

Lessons learned, dont use metallics for your first build, thread temsion matters, pack everything, then repack and pack again, dont forget the bottom winding check on the butt :)

Feom motorcycles to lowriders.....theres just sometbing right about emerald green and gold....which is a shame cause now I have to chase down e model shimanos on ebay and overpay for em. 

Second build:

Swimbaits 4-10oz's
Phenix M1 80H
Alps machined Al reel seat.....light gold
Yellow Camo grips, cut and turned down to a split grip
Fuji alconite guides
Fuji light yellow, gray and black size D thread
Double axis chevrons and a horrible fade wrap.

Lessons learned, pack, re-pack and pack again, dont use a marker on the under wrap, dont eff up the wrap count, order double the amount of thread you think you'll need, dont eff with the finish till its cured, burnish everything, sharp blades equal clean cuts. 

Yellow, black, gold and gray are just as gaudy as the other color combo, i dig it.  Had to track down a shimano dsv for it but may be swappung ut out for a conquest 300....just because....more gold.

Both have a ton of mistakes but still learning, what are you gonna do.

Hobie Kayaks / Damnit......I got GOT!
« on: January 05, 2018, 11:16:21 AM »
Just when I thought 3 kayaks were enough for an ex-kayaker, I added another to the fleet. Revo 11. To make matters worse, after i told myself i was gonna fish it bare bones no rigging....I bought a sail for it (i really really need to stop looking in the classified section).  A relatively benign search on ack for a furling kit yielded a whole list of other cool and outrageously priced hobie stuff that I absolutely do not need but will eventually buy.

As far as I can tell, I need: turbo fins, furling kit, ama kit, rubber mesh pockets, 21"hbar, rocket launcher, sailing rudder and a second job. 

I havent stepped in a kayak shop in years, whos got the best stock of goods? Id rather buy from a sponsor than online.

PS, this spring Im gonna shoot for a Russo's to Holland Tract cruise/fish.  Would eventually like to do a russos (maybe big break) to disco sail.  Its a pretty straight shot and generally all downwind.  Anybody game, i need a second vehicle to make it feasible :)

General Talk / Shimano Curado 300 Handles
« on: January 01, 2017, 02:05:45 PM »
I bought a 300 EJ from the tackle warehouse pre-xmas sale.  I'll be using it to throw big swimbaits so I'd really prefer to have the double paddle handle.  Anybody know if the power handle is interchangeable with the handle from the 300e?

General Talk / Creepy Clown "Epidemic"
« on: October 04, 2016, 06:29:24 PM »
Got a good laugh, writer has a great style, but it's a serious issue according to clowns. 

"Creepy clowns, the ones with squirting flowers — not flags — on their lapels, are becoming a scourge across the country."

‘‘These aren’t clowns, they’re imposters,’’ said Christensen, who was recently honored by his association with the title of Master Clown.

The professional clowns are serious about their credentials. And furious about all this."

My office in downtown sj  is normally a pretty desolate place after dark, actually with the hobos living in the guadalupe creepin around all night its really kinda shady. 

Been grinding all day and barely got to leave, as im driving out if the lot theres about 100 souless beings walking around aimlessly and  bumping into each other in the park accross the street.  Turns out theyre all just playing pokemon go lol.

Wtf is happening to society.

As professionals on the perch tournament circuit, the perch slaying duo of Angle and master chef Omar needed a photog to chase them around the beach recording the carnage.....I invited myself along to fill that role.

With a morning low tide, stained water and high surf the prospects were looking pretty grim.....for everybody else, but the perch pounders were optinistic, these conditions separate the men from the perch punks. 

They got in and chucked away, hucking heavily scented grubs.

After a few hours of the slow wind and grind Angle and i lost focus.  As we're bs'ing on the sidelines Omar hooked a decent perch reeled it in, all the way up to the rod tip, and hoisted it 8' in the air and walked out of the surf victorious.

The MORF, getting it done.....bait is for rooks.

Shortly after, I got one in on the sandworm.  It was small, something I'd normally refer to as bait, but in this day it fended off the skunk. I'll take it.

Considering the conditions, we figured omar might be in the running.....till we got to the weighin and he came up shy of placing by a few ounces.  Didn't matter, he got it done on plastics while everyone else (juniors and adults) was soaking bait.

At the raffle, Omar commented that they should have solicited a spa cause he needed a massage.  Angle asked if he was sore, Omar replied that his back was hurting.  Angle asked what happened to his back and his response was an instant classic...."Its sore cause I've been carrying the weight of this team all day."   Samartass....

Bushy throws a hell of a party.....till next year.
