Re: Opinions Wanted: best place to hand troll

Zack - the best place to hand-troll is in a spot where you can access a lot of fish every day and have a quiet place to anchor for the night; where you can get rid of your catch everyday because you have filled your holding space; where you can get gas, gear, or groceries whenever you want to withou...

Re: How to keep spoons nice?

I love to tow bright spoons around and have gone through the entire learning process for keeping them as shiny as possible. There is a lot of good information in these posts.

Re: Hand Trollers: What to look for?

Handtrolling out of Juneau can be a bitch. The expenses of running back and forth to the open legal areas usually puts the ki-bosh on someone trying to get started.

Re: Remote hot watertank for Dickinson stove?

It is ancient history now but I ran an older salmon tender back in the late 70s that had a coil and remote hot water tank. I am guessing now that it was about a 30-gallon galvanized round tank like the type that used to be fairly common for heating water off stoves in houses. It worked great as long...

Re: Salty goes down south

Good old Salty - without his help I wouldn't have been able to access this forum. But a quick email to him and even when he was away from his home computer he sent me a message with the info I needed. Glad to see he also got voted onto the NSRAA Board - he will do a good job on there. Anyway, it wil...
