For all you who fish.

I had a fellow working for me.
As he did his papers for his masters. On what spoils fish.

The first thing to do when you catch a fish that you are going to keep is.

Get the Gills out.

This is where all the bacteria that will spoil a fish comes from. This also serves to bleed the fish.

When the guys catch the copper river reds that sell for $25.00 a pound that is one of the first things done.

Nice Dolphin, Karl. A fish that jumps! And runs out line! And isn't gray! And doesn't live under a freezing cold rock!

I've been bleeding my redfish recently, it really does help. This is a great tip, I'd never heard that about spoiling.

Except for the summers when I'm in the cruising mode, I fish year 'round in my 34 Californian LRC. I bought the sedan trawler as a good fishing platform, yet suitable for family cruising. I wanted something with good accommodations, a fishable cockpit and wide side decks to allow me to walk all around the boat with a fish on the line and o barriers. This boat has filled the bill.

We typically head out with 3-4 anglers for day trips, 2-3 for overnights in the CA Delta chasing stripers and sturgeon. Unfortunately, trolling in the shallow waters of the delta is a bit cumbersome for the captain with this boat (all driving and no fishing!), so I limit it to anchor fishing or drifting. Open water trolling on the autopilot would be much easier, but I have not passed the Golden Gate with her yet. Next year, I'll take her up to Sacramento for a couple months for the fall salmon run.

Love the sedan layout, but the wide side decks come at the expense of salon width. My 12.4 beam only allows a 10.0 cabin width, but I get by!

What's holding you back, Al?



And your saloon is plenty wide. (But when are you getting one of your saloon tables fixed? ... Never seen a man move so fast. ... Am awaiting your photo/journal account, on a new thread, of last week's SF adventure.)

Three things are holding me back: 1. time, 2. experience and 3. courage!!

What a great week it was!! The write-up is coming. Since I've been home, I've been buried with work and getting my new laptop up and running. Finally got the pics loaded tonight.

I ordered 2 new table bases (1 spare) and a couple shiny new table legs yesterday. ;-) Tomorrow I start fashioning a custom fridge anchoring bracket.

Your retirement is quite soon, and I'll volunteer to buddy-boat. (In the sixties I was as far as 12 miles out to the lightship, now a big-buoy, in a 28-foot sailboat). So, there shouldn't be any excuses. But need to plan weather-wise. The autumn season is best, or a calm winter-window, but tidal currents need to be considered too.

Don't plan on using your flybridge.

I sure can see how the sedan would be an advantage. I'll need to weigh that against wanting a rear master cabin. Looks like a direct tradeoff to have a sedan or a 2 cabin boat.

The 34 Californian has 2 staterooms (fwd stateroom bunks and full size in master stateroom) and a separate shower.

The 38 Sedan LRC is a similar layout but everything is roomier. Maybe Per will post up some pics of his 38 Sedan.
