  1. If you find a shoreline with small to medium rocks at low tide, it should be easy to find your own crabs if you’re interested in getting your own. They’re generally easy to find - but also easy to buy - so it really depends on your schedule and level of interest.
  2. Nice work, and a good way to customize your lures for different situations by varying the amount of hair, adding feathers, etc. Arguably one of the most versatile lures out there.
  3. I also have a Clash2 4000 HS, and so far like it a lot. I got it primarily for albies, but plan to use it for early season bass this Spring as well.
  4. As a side note, those short rooftop antennae are often threaded and easily removed. I never listen to the car radio anyway, so I always removed my antenna for kayak season. One less thing to worry about or break.
  5. I'm hoping to expand my shellfish repertoire this year to include steamers, mussels, and maybe some razor clams and/or scallops. Quahogs are great, but I'd like to learn where and how to get some of the others.
  6. We got on Feb 28th when there was a windless day. Cold, but it was good to get out.
  7. IMO, you will be just fine (and more comfortable) in a semi-dry suit. As Cheech mentioned, your neck is unlikely to go under except for the initial dunk. Even then, the neck gasket is still snug enough to work well. I was unfortunate enough to test my Kokatat semi-dry suit three times on a March ocean trip, and only a small trickle of water come in at my neck.
  8. Most likely, and for me this is a bonus to shopping on-site since they have a ton of inventory even when other local brick and mortar shops have sold out of popular items.
  9. I was thinking the same thing. It potentially could be a Coopers, or a Sharp Shinned, but that low-flying pattern sure sounds like a Harrier. Neat birds.
  10. Interesting. This must have been pretty recent, as I was at the old location not that long ago. Thanks for posting this, as there's a good chance I would have driven to the old location otherwise.
  11. I was out today in what likely was my last boat trip of the season. Tons of bait in a local river, but the only fish chasing it are micro schoolies. I kept hoping that there’d be larger fish mixed in, but it never happened for me. I suspect that some larger fish still are around, but I haven’t caught a decent-sized bass in 2-3 weeks.
  12. I didn’t notice it at all, and I’m thinking that noise of the boat engine likely drowned out the rumbling. I did notice a few small swells coming from a different direction than all of the rest, but at the time I didn’t think anything of it.
  13. Same here. I guess they’re like tog, with a spring and a fall season.
  14. I caught a few squid off of a local dock last week. I just happened to be there and saw them in the water. I only got a couple before the wind and cold took all the fun away. I might try again tonight before this warm spells ends.
  15. I was on the water in lower BB (near the epicenter) and didn’t notice a thing. At one point, I saw some swells coming from a different direction than the rest, but didn’t think anything of it at the time.
