Re: Tsunami hits Japan

Here's a video from Depoe Bay, Oregon, where I do a good amount of fishing. Video taken from the Coast Guard boat house... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0hdyn0tJMk This video is from Crescent City, California, well known on the West Coast USA for getting ravaged by tsunamis.

that it does... the first break that hits (the double) is only 2m deep. The rock in the distance is about 1km off, and is only about 12m deep! Another kilo further and it's 30+m

Re: Review - Hobie Pro Angler

I'm not sure why, but I've always had a problem calling the Pro Angler a kayak. It's certainly huge, and I'd not be surprised if you could walk around to the stern of the kayak to dig through a crate if you had one back there.

Re: Another weather break...

Jason - I use the Kodak PlaySport camera. It's a decent bit, but it severely lacks in the battery life. I keep a second charged battery with me in case I have more than an hours worth of shooting to do. I'm not sure exactly the hum that you are referring to, but might it be the wind-noise in the bac...

Another weather break...

Every so often in the winter (as it is here now), the stars align, idols are worshiped, virgins are sacrificed, and those of us in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, are granted a day where we can get on the water. Last monday, the surf dropped from 4 meter down to 1m, and we got to do some fishing h...

Re: PFD Rescue knives

My favorite is the Gerber Rivermate http://www.gearculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/gerber-rivermate.jpg it locks very well and requires a good tug. I'd say, however, that it does corrode easily, so cleaning is necessary. I prefer the blunt tip to know that it'll be cutting only, and not pierc...

Re: Compulsary Lifejackets

I know of 3 incidents this week where people ended up in the water. Two survived. The one death came because he wasn't wearing a PFD. One of the survivors has now sworn off inflatables. The other survivor will now be paddling with proper immersion gear (dry/wet suit).

Re: Depoe Bay, Oregon, USA

oh, i'm familiar with the big females. they're usually in deeper colder water than we were fishing. they'll be in, spawn, and leave the males with the eggs. the big lings are just fewer and further between out here

Re: Reel maintenance - whos feeling generous?

don't forget about YouTube. i've come across a few videos that have helped me out the first time I opened up a reel. from there, Alan Tani's site, as listed, is awesome. crazy thing is, as far as i know, he doesn't even fish. he's a pharmacist that likes to take stuff apart!

Re: Depoe Bay, Oregon, USA

Thanks, yeah, pretty much everything that day was Lingcod. super tasty fish. only 1 cabezon (giant saltwater sculpin) and 1 rockfish. Normally you'd see a ton of rockfish and cabezon, but the lings have moved in to spawn, chasing away all the other fish. I use a Kodak PlaySport. Shoots hi-def and is...

Depoe Bay, Oregon, USA

last trip of 2010, and probably won't be kayak friendly for a few more months. The winds were blowing (as shown by the flag), but the swell was as flat as I've ever seen it.

Re: New Viking Kayaks Profish 400 - Updated

definitely looks like a well thought out kayak. as i fish more and more, though, i keeping thinking about narrower kayaks to help me get out to my fishing grounds faster... I'll be keeping an eye on this states-side. i'd say there's a market here, depending on the export costs...

Re: Paddling speed

taking it easy I average about 4.5kph, but, in flatwater windless conditions, I've been able to double that for a 5 minute sprint. It wasn't easy to say the least. In more average conditions I top out around 7kph. That's in my Trident 15. The OK Ultra 4.7 would probably be the same, if not just a ha...

Re: Got Kayak Fishing Hand Paddles?

I've been using the Backwater Piranha since last March. At first I was highly skeptical, I trash talked it quite a bit before ever using it, but it really has become a tool that I like to keep in my kayak. Freshwater and saltwater fishing have both found it useful - I even use it quite a bit when si...

Re: What knives for kayaking?

I'm not sure how easily available they are down there, but I'm a big fan of the Gerber Rivermate and River Shorty knives. In fact, every PFD I have has one or the other attached. They're a blunt tipped knife with only a serrated edge. In an emergency situation, these cut through rope quickly and you...

some of the best of 2010

Someone recently told me that I had a pretty good year. I feel cheated by some fish, but other I did do pretty well at. With winter fast approaching in my neck of the world, it's a good time for some fishing review - or what little I have after loosing a camera off the boat.... my first smallmouth b...
