General Fishing Tips / Re: Fishfinders scare fish?
« on: May 18, 2019, 07:48:36 PM »
Many years ago I had an older Chris Craft with a Raytheon commercial sonar unit. I never thought it would spook fish.
One day I was swimming away from the boat and I could hear a very loud clicking sound underwater. I forgot and had left the sonar on, after returning to the boat just before climbing onto swim step I put my hand close to the transducer and could feel the clicks and a dull pain in my hand bones from the energy coming from the sonar, After that I always turned it off if I was anchored and fishing.
Now if I am swimming around my boat with newer CHIRP there is not a high power signal like that old Raytheon unit.
Does the Garmin on my kayak spook fish???? I don't think so!

That is a very cool and useful map Eric

Very cool
Thanks for the lesson

My Son and I had so much fun diving Ocean Cove for the last urchin event,
 I just made my reservation for Albion in July for the next one.
For the next dive I am bringing my Wife and our kayaks to help out too

I can say it was time well spent, but I am not sure when or if there is any plans for more in the future.
There was a call list going around the group on Sat. to do a on the water trip/lesson also.

I am not sure where this should  be posted but I wanted to share my experience  about the kayak fishing clinic hosted at Claveys in Petaluma today 4-7-18
Every one in attendance was given a bag with useful websites for kayak fishing, up to date DFG reg. books and a swim bait for rockfishing
I am always open to learn new things and today paid off. I took my wife who loves to fish but does not get out with me fishing as often as she likes and she had a lot of fun.
I was very happy to meet Craig or better known as Ravensblack.
He was very knowledgeable and did a great job engaging the group and answering a wide range of questions.
I am sorry I don't remember the names of the other instructors that were there also since they all shared a wealth of information
Thanks to all for a great day

I have never used a snare for crab but you make it look like a lot of fun and you got dinner as a huge plus.
Great job on the go-pro footage, it's always cool to see what's down there.

Nice to hear they are keeping up on great customer service

After some very savvy advice from some other members here I have brought the price down to a more reasonable level.
This does come with a paddle and some very good fish MOJO
