Re: Ford truck question

Those are Box Link tie downs. They could be Ford OEM, but there are several after market suppliers. You might talk with your local Ford dealer and ask if the key code numbers are OEM.

Re: Bluegills of lake tahoe (video)

The side canal at 15th Street and Venice Drive is one area in Tahoe Keys to catch bluegill and small bass. Not a secret location by any means. There are other areas along some of the roads, but make sure the access is not posted "No Trespassing". If you can get access to main waterway in ...

Re: help with bantam mgl

Did you try holding the thumb bar up when sliding on side plate and inserting the screws. This helps with alignment of the push rod for the thumb bar. I only have older Curados and this seems to work for me.

Re: Truck selection for boat towing

Don't know if electric brakes are being used on new rigs, but electric brake systems were an option on some older trailers. Also, some people have retrofitted bass boat trailers to electric brakes claiming to be more dependable than surge brakes. I prefer the hydraulic surge brakes that most bass bo...

Re: Truck selection for boat towing

Some trucks with tow packages also include trailer brake controllers, which is needed if your trailer is equipped with electronic brakes.

As mentioned by birdman920, the ability to stop is just as important as going forward.

Re: Ultra skiff

If it has a motor, it must be registered in CA, regardless of length. The 8 foot length rule applies to sail-driven boats.

Re: Buy and Print Your Fishing Licenses in California NOW

In the CA Fish and Wildlife website, you need to create a customer profile in order to purchase the actual license on line. Purchasing as a "guest" will only get you a voucher.

Re: Stolen Boat in CA Delta

Sorry to hear about your boat. What brand/type of fishing gear do you use? Any unique markings on rods or reels? What about engine serial number? Any information can be helpful to identify gear that may show up at flea markets or online sales.

Sorry for the loss to your home and belongings. As others had said, glad to hear you made it out safely. I haven't had the opportunity to fish for bass in the upper region of Northern California, so your reports gave me perspective on what I am missing. Best wishes on getting settled into a new loca...
