Interesting take on the kayaks being manufactured, with an emphasis on the demise of the Revo.

He has great videos on Kokanee, and trout fishing too.


Completely agree that kayak manufacturers are targeting the bass crowd and coming with big and heavier boats. Since Hobie is a CA company, I am lost as to how they can miss what the local market needs, especially for saltwater.

Any videos of the trip?

I've been using an Amped Outdoors 12v 15ah for 2 years. I get about 12 hours on 7 inch Raymarine Element and 9 hours on my 9 inch Element.  Its been working great.

I've been changing both split rings and hooks when using Dynamic lures. I've regularly experienced their factory hooks and split rings fail when pulling on big fish. Here's a pic of a 8lb Lightning Trout caught trolling on 8 lb mono. The top split ring broke and the factory hooks bend easily.  I was lucky to land it.

I got tired of changing their terminal tackle and informed the manufacturer. To my delight they sent me heavier replacement hooks and split rings. Also asked for my feedback on how the new gear performs.

Sharing this thread about Revolutions being discontinued. I really like my 11 and 13.  Sad if its true.

Berkley fishing usually has a big sale at around Thanksgiving. I loaded up on their Fusion Treble Hooks 1X size 10, 8, 6.  They are excellent hooks and just as good as Gami's and Owner hooks. It may be a while for their next big sale.  https://www.berkley-fishing.com/collections/hooks

Great report and pics Eric. I always enjoy your reading your Lost Coast reports.

WTG guys. What an action filled day.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Kill Bag Recommendations?
« on: May 15, 2024, 08:54:20 AM »
My kill bag is an old Walmart 50 can softcooler.  I've placed 40 lbs plus of fish in it including spiny RF.  Got on sale years ago for $25.

I hope u have luck, Paul.

If not, they might have fresh squid at the end of the first pier by MBK, plus other types of seafood as well as the shop next door that has fresh abalone.

This is are great back up plan if your squid catching is slow.
