The reason you put an ad in a magazine is to get results. It's an investment that you hope will turn a profit.

Since it's a fishing site think of it this way. If you keep casting and don't get...

You might want to check out the regs on nmfs.org. I think the issue is being able to get a permit for an unregistered vessel. I'm not trying to take the wind out of your sails but given the speed...

There is also a line to be drawn between buying gear and fishing. Hey gear can be part of the fun, using a well engineered piece of equipment spin or fly ain't a bad thing.

I'd add to that, distance of the cast not always so much for where it puts the plug but the amount of time the offering is in the water. When something travels a greater distance or is near the...

Some of those canal fish have made it to Plymouth (off Plymouth). No 40#r's but 30+#r's. Never got a 40lb fish, how long is one of those beasts? I've caught my share of low 30lb fish, they tape...

That's the one with the weed wacker motor isn't it. I remember getting a lift to my boat at a bone clave. I also remember Juro pulling up to Washburn with a ton of gear, that's a great boat.
