Hey there, Ron here, I am also interested in freediving/spearfishing, I am a scuba diver that has freediving for a short while. I was thinking of this Sunday also. I am at work today, off by1930 tonight if you would like to talk. I can send a PM to you with my phone number, Ron.

Now I'm confused, I thought SWS was for stillwater cover, up north, stillwater south is where exactly. Near stillwater cover or down south, please let  me know, I'd like to try it out, R.

Hey special K and capo, I am always interested in new freediving buddies, going down to Monterey in a few weeks, let me know if you guys are interested in some diving, Ron.

Congratulations on your landing that elusive halibut, Good day on T bay, R.

Good Job, now I am thinking of going out this weekend, it does look windy, you are right, windy is sometimes way off, so maybe I'll take a chance, Ron.

Hey there, I found a used scupper pro for cheap, 200$ and fixed it up for fishing, added a trolling motor and pontoons on the rear. It's a great kayak to get started, lighter than most fishing kayaks. I am thinking of booking a trip with MBK in the next month, if you are interested in going out again, LMK, I have added you to my buddy list. I frequent Monterey/Carmel area often and also spearfish and scuba dive so I am always looking for buddies in that area. I was just down to Coral street and Point Lobos last week, had a great time. Let's keep in contact, take care, Ron.

General Fishing Tips / Re: Kayak guide for Saltwater intro

A couple of ideas, look at the site www.bask.org, they are more for kayak, but have a nice site and they have a great trip planner to look at where put ins are and discuss them. This group is great to ask questions and a hook up with someone with more sea skills. I believe one of the moderators who works with Monterey Bay Kayaks in Monterey leads fishing tours, so when you feel comfortable in open ocean, book a trip with him. I was actually thinking of booking a trip with him, so you are welcome to join me if you like. Another option is to first go out in bay water and get used to gear and handling it so when you are out in the open ocean you are familiar with it. You are welcome to send me a PM and maybe we can set up an outing in Monterey with the guide. I believe he is ADAM HELM 67, Good luck, Ron.

I bought mine from marin dive center in San Rafael, you could call them and ask, or maybe another dive shop that sells them, hope all works out, I have two units, for freediving and scuba, I'd hate to see they can't be repaired, R.

Hey Troy, thanks for getting back to me. I am down in Monterey this weekend, the next two weekends I would like to go out and hunt some halibut, thinking of local, rod and gun launch or China camp and a couple of weeks after that maybe a camp out in Olema and go for crab and halibut in Tomales Bay. Maybe we can try to talk in the next week, Ron.

Hey Troy, I would also be interested in seeing your setup. I currently have a 300 AH in my van and am going to upgrade to two 400 AH batteries. I am also looking to get a solar panel to help charge and have questions about charging 12 volt to 12 volt charging. I am thinking I want to charge my trolling battery with the batteries in my van, any information you have is appreciated, Ron.

Thanks for the heads up on foreign made, I have shimano gear and they have always been great with service or replacement and even credit when unrepairable. Good luck, it seems harder to find qualified repair service in these modern times, R.

Beautiful fish, good job there. Not sure if you mentioned it, where in Tomales did you go, Nick's cove or another location? I am planning to hit the T bay in a few week. Keep up the good work, slayed it, Ron.

I am going to Monterey this Friday but interested in going out to Tomales in maybe three weeks, I think crab season is still open and I hear people are catching our favorite fish, good luck, will look for you report, Ron.

Safety First / Re: Morel danger - RIP pmmpete
« on: May 22, 2024, 06:54:21 PM »
So Sad, my wife and I just started mushroom hunting last year and have just been going after a few easy ones to identify. Morel's are the next one we were thinking of going after. I have been reading about a few people getting poisoned by morels lately, so we decide to wait awhile before we try for any new ones. This post just reenforces that decision.  RIP fellow forager and kayaker, Ron.
