Trip report: Fort Bragg

We went on our annual vacation to Bragg, arriving June 25th and left on July 5th. As luck would have it, the waves were huge from the time we arrived until the night before we left. Of course, it...

Re: 130 Rob Allen Rollergun Review

Yep, that's the truth. My "long" gun for the Mendocino coast is a RA 70. I'm headed there for our annual 10 day family vacation in a couple weeks and will probably use my little Riffe 33" C-0 most...

I think under banded guns shoot high.

Well at least a couple of mine do. My most used gun in NorCal is a basic RA 70 with a 7 mm, single flopper shaft. When I used it with a 3/4" band it shot great, but when I switched to a single 5/8"...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

Thanks for the kind words Max. I remember meeting you and your sons years ago at Caspar and you too have done an outstanding job. Your sons are fine young men indeed!

On that note, I'm sending...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

I think I achieved the things I have in life, especially my outdoor skills, because of my bad experience in Boy Scouts. Our camping and back packing trips were dismal. Our scoutmaster once asked me...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

Max I have to be honest and also ashamed of myself. I was not supportive of them being in scouts at first. You see, when I was a kid I wanted to be a scout so my parents enrolled me in our local...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

I'm just glad my sons made it through before it went down the toilet. We have a great troupe here in Truckee. My twin sons both made Eagle. Both also achieved bronze, silver, and gold palms. I'm...

Re: Small id bands dyneema knots popping out

It's time consuming but what I've been using when I don't just use the Rob Allen type wishbones is epoxy. I tie double overhand knots on each end of the wishbone like everyone else, but then I dip...

Re: Zeagle question

Thanks Capt. Gene!
I love the simplicity of a separate weight belt but my old back just can't take the opposing forces of the belt pulling down on the lower back and the bcd pushing up on the upper...

Zeagle question

I have about a 20 year old Zeagle ranger bcd. Never have gotten comfortable with the fit. I see that Zeagle offers a non-metal, apparently plastic back plate. Is it possible to put my Ranger...

Re: Seeking advice for my “overpowered” 110 railgun

I enjoy these threads as I always seem to be tinkering with my guns to find the perfect setup. There's an interesting article in Spearfishing Magazine by Chris Coates regarding setups he prefers for...

Re: When you are asked to leave a store

Well this is timely. Yesterday I went into one of our local businesses. A non-chain gas station/mini mart kinda place. There was a guy in there all upset. Apparently he had come in with his...

Re: When you are asked to leave a store

No Marcus, I don't think we disagree here. I'm simply saying that I don't think race was the issue. They probably do have a policy in place and the manager may well have been following it. For all...

Re: When you are asked to leave a store

The way I see it, race should have had nothing to do with how the situation was and is being handled by upper management. If the Starbucks CEO has an issue with how people like those two guys was...

Re: Need help. Mares size

My understanding is that a 4 is a large and a 5 is an extra large. I wear a Mares suit. I have a 5 bottom and 4 top. I needed the xl bottom for my long legs. Just ordered the same suit in the...

Frontier Archery shop in Sacramento made something nearly identical to that 35 years ago. That was before the Whisker Biscuit, which is the bristly thing that holds the arrow in place, was invented....

Re: No ab season in California 2018

Re: Photo of the day

I just saw the "Boom box" video. Great idea, but there's no way I'd do it here in CA. I don't want to be paying for some thief's therapy for the rest of his life because I maliciously traumatized...

Re: Red Abalone - Northern California

Wow! I knew ab diving brought income to that area, but had no idea it was that much.

My buddy looked into ab diving in Oregon. He said the annual take is 5, the daily limit is one, and the...

Re: Red Abalone - Northern California

You mean like down south? That's my concern too.

We'll still do our big family vacation to Fort Bragg this year, as ab diving was only a part of that. It'll be interesting to see how much this...

Re: Red Abalone - Northern California

I just don't understand that. When I've been diving my same spots the past couple years, there are just as many abs, they're just shriveled and starving. Maybe I'm diving the wrong spots?:scratch:
