General Talk / Boat Storage-South Bay
« on: April 08, 2024, 09:29:34 AM »
Morning everyone, I need some help. Looking for a safe/secure place to store my 21 ft center console…until at least early June. I am staying with Kiet, who received a double lung transplant. He is whipping ass, and now wants to start fishing
   We will be launching at either Oyster Point, Alameda, or Berkeley. Fishing for halibut and stripers. Willing to pay with $$$ and if you want, fishing trips
   Kiet has to stay onsite at Stanford until at least early June. If you can help, let us know. Thanks! Ron/Sharkie

General Talk / Kiet’s progress report
« on: March 19, 2024, 10:59:57 AM »
   Kiet received his lung transplant on 2/25…now we are settled in, in Palo Alto for at least a 3 month stay. All in well…lots on pain, at times, in his knees and ankle. His doctor feels 2 or 3 weeks the pain should subside
  Now Kiet is cooking up a storm, and chomping at the bit…non-stop. And he is ready for visitors, anytime.  His doctor visits are early Monday and Thursdays. Hope to see friends soon!

General Talk / Kiet’s operation: DONE!!!
« on: February 26, 2024, 11:52:05 AM »
Kiet has received his new lungs…Ryan says all is well and we need to keep a close watch on him.
   Gratitude and prayers for the families that made this possible for Kiet. And to Ryan, who spent all day at the hospital…a difficult and stressful effort. Thank you Ryan!

General Talk / Kiet’s GOOD NEWS!
« on: February 20, 2024, 07:17:03 PM »
Ok!!! After Kiet has jumped thru a million hoops, he is 100% ready for his double lung transplant.
   Kiet is resting comfortably at the Stanford hospital, receiving the best care in the world….7/24.  This is just what is needed. Now the waits on for the proper lung donor.
   I will find out if Kiet can receive visits…you can contact Kiet on Facebook and/or leave a message here.
   Thank you to all who have given Kiet the strength to tackle this illness head on. He will get over this hump and return to the Cove to fish and enjoy his family soon! Ron

General Talk / Kiet’s transplant update
« on: May 28, 2023, 08:04:38 PM »
Ok folks, more interesting news for Kiet. Kiet and I are heading down to Stanford Medical Facility for a 4 day visit
   Not sure at this moment what types of test and evaluations he will go thru….starting on Monday 6/5, to Thursday 6/8.  Up to this point I have the opinion there will be 10 miles of red tape and 5000 hoops Kiet will have to jump thru, to become eligible for a lung transplant.
   But…Kiet is committed…100% onboard. I will check back in after the 4 day visit with another report 
   Not sure if Kiet will be up for it, but it might be nice for you friends to visit…maybe for dinner   Give me a call or text and if possible, we can make a plan for dinner. Ron Perry. 925-577-7336.
    Thanks!!!! For his support!

General Talk / Baja June and July La Ventana
« on: May 25, 2023, 05:45:03 PM »
   Heading down to La Ventana for about a month, from June 18th to maybe July 15th. Fishing and diving with my 18ft aluminum CC. Staying at the campground in town, across from Pablo and Heli’s restaurant
   Anybody tough enough to be down there, look me up for a beer, dive, or fishing trip. White Ford F-150 with white shell.

General Talk / Keit’s GREAT news
« on: April 26, 2023, 07:21:02 PM »
  Just finished talking with Kiet. He is extremely jacked up.  On June 6th he has an appointment at Stanford to determine his potential eligibility for a lung transplant.
   Please remember… I am the low level dishwasher/janitor/empty the waste paper baskets and clean out the toilet guy. Not exactly sure where this puts Kiet with his transplant. BUT, this has to be good news.
   I plan to travel with Kiet to Stanford….what Kiet needs here is an advocate who understands the language and direction he should travel with his medical care. For me it is my wife.  If anyone in this field can step up and advise/ support/help Kiet with his options, please step up

   On another note, thanks to Kenny Baker and Joseph Velho! These guys whipped ass at Kiet’s property a few weeks back. Tons of clean up, sold a ton of stuff, and now have Kiet’s property in manageable condition.  Still making a plan to cleanup and have a get together at Kiet’s place soon. Will keep all posted, Ron

General Talk / Kiet’s fundraising update
« on: April 06, 2023, 07:29:20 AM »
Ok folks, weather is improving…here is the new plan.  I plan on heading up to Kiet’s place on Friday April 14th for a garage sale/clean up, and stay until Sunday the 16th.  I need help!

   Then…party on the west side…of Cave Junction! May 13th.  Kiet will be home and should be settled in.  Let’s have a Cove style shit-kicker. All are invited, family and friends. Kiets property is vast, lots of room…lets tear it up! I'll grab a keg, grill a bunch of goodies and we can contuine to help with a clean up.  More info to come later…suggestions welcome. Thanks to all who have helped, Ron

Hobie Kayaks / Hobie Outback seat upgrade
« on: February 23, 2019, 08:39:27 PM »
Hi Outback owners, I have a 2014 Outback. Can I fit the new seat in my Outback? Or is there another option out there for a better seat? I am 62, still an endurance fisherman on the ocean, and my present seat is worn out. Thanks for any replies! Ron

Gearing Up and Rigging Up / FF battery help
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:45:29 PM »
Hi everyone, I need some help. I have  a Garmin echo 300c with the large 12v battery sold by Hobie. I replaced the battery about one year ago. It worked excellent for about 10 trips. Now the battery will not charge...it reads about 7.5 volts after three tries to charge. I left it on overnight.
   The battery charger has the green light on after each charge. I am a 40 plus year union electrician and have a accurate Fluke meter....no problem there.
   It is either the charger or the battery.
   Does anyone have a Hobie 12v charger or a similar charger I can try charging my battery with? I am in the Humboldt area, Blue Lake, and can leave the battery with you....along with a 6 pack of your favorite IPA...or if you need any Humboldt "medicine".
   I will attach pictures of the battery and charger. Thanks, Ron

Hookups and Fishing Reports (Viewable by Public) / Rpt: Stone Lagoon 1/12
« on: January 13, 2019, 06:57:12 PM »
  First trip to Stone Lagoon yesterday, 1/12. Thanks to all for getting me up to speed! Met Tyler at 7:30am on the nose. He had a 10 or 11' Outback, mine is a 12 foot Outback.
   Trolled every inch of the lagoon, I had a small takedown and Tyler had a better takedown around 8:30am, right out front. Neither fish stuck. Took a break from trolling for about 20 minutes, then back at it until about 3:00pm. Tyler hung until about 3:30pm.
   I trolled Little Cleo's and Kastmasters with zero weight up to 1/2 ounce egg sinker. Tried everything. Had the kayak on the van and ready for a beer when Tyler called and just landed a good steelhead, around 25 inches, release in great shape.
   We both had our shirts off....maybe 65 degrees and top wind of 3kts! Best weather of the year, flat ALL DAY! What an excellent spot. Heard of friends fishing Big Lagoon and Freshwater Lagoon with slow results. Maybe the water was a tick dirty from the rain, and maybe I didn't know what I am doing yet! Thanks again to Tyler and all on this site, Ron

Fishing Pics / Baja photo 1940's

Hook and release anyone? Here is why we should be compelled to let all large fish go.

Baja had a TON of large grouper caught from Island Carmen.... for 40 years. Not any more.
