I'm planning to go out at Bolinas tomorrow. Arrive at about 5:30. Plan to troll out a ways looking for salmon and switch to hunting other species if there's no action. I'll be on a red outback.

Geetum brah! :smt006

Welcome, from a 78 year young man who started at 62.   Yeah, I've had to make some adjustments over the years, such as not staying out longer than 4-5 hrs and doing really heavy lifting.  But it's more about staying in decent shape in the off-season and on the days during the season when I'm not on the water. I'm no fitness fanatic, but I stay active, in fact, it's hard for me not to be active.
Go Tom go!  You are an inspiration... :smt006

General Talk / Re: Salmon Rod Recommendation
« on: July 27, 2021, 09:11:10 AM »
I gotta say I don't quite understand the desire for long (>8') salmon rods on a kayak. It seems to me that a shorter rod would be more advantageous when lifting the tip to net a fish. The way I'm visualizing it, the steeper angle needed to net a fish on a longer rod would put a lot of stress on the tip, causing more snaps and limiting the range of flex in your rod.

Can one of you longer rod dudes help me understand the appeal?

When the fish comes at you or pops the clip off the rigger, The longer rod picks up way more line and helps you keep tension.  The arc length of a 9' rod versus a 7 foot rod allows you to pick up an additional .5 inches of line per degree of change in the rod. So if you lift that puppy up 45 degrees you'll pick up almost 2 extra feet of line- That can help you keep a fish pinned as it jumps, or when it pulls the line off the clip and introduces momentary slack it can help you pick it up that much faster.
I like them thar physics...hope you been catching'... :smt006

When you're doing it on the yak keep an eye on that wire.  The ocean loves to drink em'.  Stoked for you. :smt006

Nothing a bobber on the end won't cure.

Pearls of wisdom. Too bad I didn't follow through.
Had the bobber in my tackle bag. Forgot to attach it.
Went through the head on a ling. Saw it quiver as I went down the spinal cord with the wire but wanted to go through the tail as well just to be sure.
Got the cord exposed, went to grab the wire....what wire?
Must have gone overboard.
Cleanest ling meat I have had. That thing is no joke.
Bummer part is now they are on pre-order.
No telling how long it will be before I get it replaced.
Brah!  So sorry...you have the spike at least.  Try the ikijime federation website... I’ll try to find a link...:smt006

here's my trooching 2 piece Okuma SST just loaded up w my girl at the other end. Its rated 15-50 or something. This rod kept both my guys buttoned pretty well. I just need a bigger net now....

I brought my tiger rod out for the deep six but didnt get anything on it.
Go Yaad!  I'm thinking two piece has the stuff! :smt006

To finish well is the way to live!  Thanks for all the emotional details on running a business.  It’s quite transferable to many moments in life.  So glad for all the pieces to get this done. Total victory!  :smt006

That video made me chuckle and smile!  No spoilers... :smt006

Keep em' coming.  What a run o' good times.  Thanks Eric for all the reports.  Dang Josiah...life is real... :smt006
