    Re: Boat Buying Help

    You just need a bill of sale and a trip to DMV to register it and pay your sales tax. I bought a boat that was registered in AZ and that was the process 10 years ago.

    My cousin bought a boat...

    Re: Berryessa 7/11

    RideNfish is correct. They are trout. I didn't click on the original pic to blow them up.

    Still nice fish though.

    Good fishing. They are koke's.
  4. Re: Aluminum Boats & Persons/Weight Capacity

    Because a boat is heavier on the back end, the fuel gauge generally doesn't start coming off the full mark until some of the gas is burned. So if you have a 38 gallon tank, I would think it would...
  5. Re: Aluminum Boats & Persons/Weight Capacity

    Better to have more fuel than not enough. It's also good in case you go fishing for a week somewhere and you don't have to worry about getting fuel every few days.

    Just don't fill it up all the...

    Re: Bodega Bay, (Doran)

    Not sure on the perch fishing, but it's been pretty windy lately up there as well as down in the Bay Area. Be safe out there.

    We did catch a king salmon the other week trolling the cove between...

    Re: The Cannon Optimum

    Wow...that is really cool. Imagine the down riggers lowering and raising automatically to the depth where the fish are seen on the fish finder.
  9. Re: Thoughts on this boat- as first fishing boat

    If this is your first boat I would recommend getting the biggest boat with the biggest motor within your budget and where you are going to store the boat. Just don't settle on a boat because you...

    Re: DIY Canvas Material Recommendations

    I'd pay the $1000, sounds pretty reasonable. Is the middle flap zippered or snap?

    You guys are funny.
  13. Re: Calif. new homes rules...................

    It’s just like having catalytic converters on our cars. Got to have it. I think having solar on all new construction is a good thing.
  14. Re: Calif. new homes rules...................

    Nothing wrong with solar heating, especially in Chico where they get some good sun 9 months out of the year. I think the new law is for Solar energy. Where you put energy back into the grid. I've...
  15. How are your running four down riggers?

    I've got four down riggers and have been running the two rear ones out to the side and the two forward ones with the boom extended. The rear down riggers I run at a shallower depth than the forward...
  16. Re: Please talk me through this or out of it.

    I would feel more comfortable with two batteries on a boat. If you have a perko switch why wouldn't you want to install it with two batteries?

    Re: Weather conditions in SF bay?

    The bay is pretty much a safe place to boat. It just has wind chop in the afternoon. Although it can be pretty bad during the summer afternoons. The ocean has wind chop and swells. It can be...

  21. Re: Looking for a good place to take kids fishing

    Anywhere along the sac river is good if you just want to catch some shaker stripers. Use cut anchovies in 2 inch pieces and a 1/0 hook and soak some bait. Bound to catch them. Just can’t keep...

    Re: Weather conditions in SF bay?

    I use a halibut spreader bar, one side is about 10" long and the other is about 6" long. I attach the weight to the long arm and the leader to the short side.

    On the leader end I run about 16"...

    Re: Weather conditions in SF bay?

    I don't buy live bait but troll with frozen tray herring. I use a single hook up front and a 5/0 stinger on the tail. I'd say 90% of my fish are hooked on the stinger hook.

    So yes I'd put a...
