Re: Early Riffe Speargun

You might need new bands..

I don't think there is much of a market for this era Riffes. Not as good as a new gun, and not worth selling. Re-furb it for yourself, or hang it on a wall. My dad has...

Re: Back to Montana

Re: need some information on Gonzaga Bay

If you don't order the tostadas and a chile relleno at the Papa's cantina, something is wrong with you!

Shrimp tacos at Alfonsina's are great, but the service has really gotten bad in the past...

Where did you move to? I just moved back to So Cal from Missoula, I miss it already! I put in a few dives with some locals after some pike but never even saw one. Hit up Stick 'Em and let him know...

Re: Breaker panel

Check out Minney's Marine off of Newport Blvd and 15th in Costa Mesa. Great deals there on new and used boat gear.

Re: Speargun build paint job

You can add graphite to your epoxy as well, its a beautiful finished product. I have done it on one gun so far and I'm planning on using it on my next build.

Re: Go Fund For Gonzaga Bay legend

He was always so kind and always had a smile. I didn't know him personally, but he made the hassle of fueling up in Gonzaga a much, much more pleasant experience. I'll pass this along to my network...

Re: Baja FMM Permit

You could probably get them in Ensenada at the port captain/immigration, but they might not like it too much since you could have gotten them in TJ(I'm presuming). Is the FMM the permit we were...

Re: Mick Fanning GWS

Absolutely the heaviest thing I've ever seen in a CT event. I thought it was going to end so, so much worse when I saw it. Glad Mick is alright.

I wonder when the final will be head.

Re: To hunt or not to hunt in super thick kelp beds?

I have had decent success/luck in the thickest of all kelp beds. Shot my PB white sea bass in EXTREMELY thick kelp. Managed to do it looking for big calicos with a 25' float line to boot. It was a...

Re: near sinking
