Codzilla, let me know if you need help pimping.  The pain goes away after the first few holes.  That big game is a nice kayak, very stable.

Welcome RG! 

GMS is an awesome event put on by by Abking.  He really puts his heart and soul into it.  If you want a shot in the arm of pure kayak madness, it is the place to be, either in the tourney or just to fish and have a great time! 

This is one of the most addicting sports I have come across.  If I don't see you at Shelter Cove, I hope to see you at Trinidad!

I will probably be there!  My wife and I are going to come over to Eureka for that weekend.  She wants to relax, I want to fish!

Thanks for the report.  I can't wait to see a salmon inspired Abking video!   ;D

I was considering getting some flares as well.  Great tips.  How do the stick flares compare to the gun flares?  The light stick is a great idea.  I may have to pick some up to keep in my ditch bag or PFD.

I did get a nice C-Strobe for my PFD, that thing is amazingly bright!  I had a white "safety" light for the PFD before, and it was junk.  It barely made a good flashlight  :-\  I may get a small signal mirror for day time signaling as well.  It isn't just night time when we may need a rescue.

I also just picked up a bike flag to put on my kayak light pole.  I noticed with the swell, it is easy to loose sight of the kayaks.  The flag seems to stand out pretty well.  I just hope I don't get my rods tangled on it!

Any speculation circulating on the number of fish expected around this year?  Have you ever done any mooching at the cove Eric?  I like trolling, but it is fun when a fish comes by and swallows your bait!

I wish California would follow Oregon and reduce the bag limit, yet have year round fishing.  I need a rock fishing fix!  I need to start spearfishing more  :-\.

Hi Pacman, probably around afternoon to early evening.  I would rather scuba after free diving.  I wouldn't want to build up the nitrogen and then free dive.  Doubt much would happen, but that is a long way away from a hyperbolic chamber!  I have four tanks, and will probably bring along two.

Thanks Jim!

I may have to pack the long fins!  Of course I need to start running again, it has been a long fat building winter.  I can't wait to get in the water, it has been too long.  I may take the family to the lake for some diving.  I can't spear, but can take the camera for the Black Bass and turtles.  I need to start getting my lungs built up again, and get into the mode.

Scallops would be sweet!  We will definitely have to go for some for the grill.  How deep have you found them Eric?  Last year I could go 30-40 feet with the long fins.

What size gun are you using in the low vis conditions?  I have a JBL Magnum and an Omer 82cm that I am happy with (mainly the Omer).  I have a pole spear that work pretty good for the low visibility days, but have considered getting a shorty gun for close shooting.  It looked like you had a little Biller or Riffe in your video?

I am really wanting to try for scallops!  Not sure if there are any pinnacles with them at the cove.  I may have to dive Trinidad for them.

I am planning on diving Friday afternoon, and Saturday.  AbMan and I are talking about taking our scuba gear to do a dive sometime Saturday.  The rest the time will be free diving.  I have a waterproof camera that takes HD videos, I would love to film some harvesting LCKA style!

The board looks great!  I love the logo and background.
