For Sale / Re: Kokata Dry suit and Paddle shirt for sale
« on: March 10, 2023, 02:52:30 PM »
I know you said you didn't want to split up, but if you want to sell the paddle shirt separately and if it's in usable condition, I'd be happy to buy it. I have a similar Kokatat Blast short-sleeve one but the seam-taping finally gave up the ghost. I'm in Sacramento so nearby.

Interesting to see that it happens to lots of people. I know it has happened to my fingers from fishing salt off and on, but haven't seen much of a pattern. I wear neoprene paddling gloves with just the ends of three fingers cut off, and I paddle my kayak.

I do feel like it doesn't happen as much as it used to but not positive. It's always mild and more like one layer of skin comes off on the end of my fingers, but it's not really sensitive afterwards.

I would guess it would be just from prolonged contact with salt water and general abrasion from fishing, but have no idea.

I think a Commodore 64 would be smarter than all the "RIpPin LIpZ and BIG LiMITZ!" folks on kayaks these days.

I welcome our robot overlords!

Also I haven't been paying attention to ChatGPT but it's crazy that now there's a whole battle between students using AI to write papers for them vs. computers trying to detect computer-written papers so teachers can give them a F.

Sure wish everyone who got ON the water would always plan to be IN the water at some point. Really changes your thinking.

Waders, no PFD, in the dark, in the ocean, wind and waves... such a bad set of compounding factors.

Gearing Up and Rigging Up / Re: Kayak Waist Puller Design?
« on: January 23, 2023, 12:37:07 PM »
I always have a couple 20' NRS straps for bow and stern lines when the kayak is on the roof rack for travel. I have used one of those (shortened up) just across the torso over one shoulder to help drag the kayak up a hill. It's never fun at the end of a long day.

Woah. Wonder what SWN will look like when things calm down. Big thanks to all the park folks and tree people and everyone cleaning up after all this (welcome) rain and (not so welcome) wind.

General Talk / Re: Cement Ship Pier Damage

Same with me. First thing I thought when I saw the picture was "where's the cement ship?"

Haven't been there since I was a little kid.

General Fishing Tips / Ambush nets on kayak?
« on: December 27, 2022, 06:29:12 AM »
Hi all.

Searched the forums but didn't find anything on this. I'm used to using old flat ring nets on the kayak, and can easily stack four of them, with bait, lines, and floats in front of me on my paddle kayak (Viking Profish). Seems like everyone is going over to the ambush nets, which makes sense to me in terms of somewhat constraining the crabs in the net.

A couple questions:
  • Is it easy to stack the ambush nets on a kayak with ropes, floats, bait? Not quite sure how all that interacts with the raised ring portion. I assume with the bottom (third) ring section it can nest down somewhat?
  • Are people using the 32" or 36" off a kayak? I assume the smaller one? My crabbing is typically in 25-40' of water.

I'm seeing 7' @ 12 sec on Friday.  Too much for me!

Welcome! From your IG, looks like you are doing some great stuff getting folks into fishing. Hope to see you on the water or with a pokepole somewhere!

General Talk / Re: I'm looking for Pyramid lake advise
« on: October 17, 2022, 06:54:54 PM »
I'd have no idea how to fish it, but have always been intrigued when I drive past it. Beautiful lake in an amazing location.

Safety First / Re: Get this Spyderco knife!
« on: August 24, 2022, 03:06:18 PM »
I agree with the confusion about the NRS knives needing two hands to pull. I've had the same NRS knife for 5+ years on a lashtab on the PFD, handle end down on the left side. It's automatic to reach with my right hand and grab it, pinching the tabs and pulling it one handed. Can't figure how it would need two hands to pull out. I usually use two hands to put it back into the sheath just to make sure it's seated and the tabs grab it well.

Been meaning to add a very short lanyard and little float to it, but I've managed to not lose it yet. Good knife.

CA Regulations / Re: Crab Traps
« on: August 05, 2022, 07:51:40 AM »
i'm pretty sure its because like 90% of people doing traps do it for dungie. the # of ropes in the water during "rock crab only" season is way less.

Or 99%.

I don't know Alan but always impressed by his reel skills, all the reel info he puts out to help folks, and most of all these trips he makes happen.

Living your best life Alan!
