Gear Talk / Burning Shark Spinning Reel - Review
« Last post by RHYAK on Yesterday at 05:16 PM »
Stay with us as we review the new Burning Shark spinning reel. This reel is in the 1000 size and is probably closer to what most would consider a 2000 maybe even a 3000 size reel. Drag is fairly smooth out of the box but after a weekend of using it definitely lost some of that smoothness. The Burning Shark is fairly loud when reeling in on a slow retrieve noticed almost a clicking sound which should probably not be there. Would say out of 10 would rate the Burning shark reel at about a 5.

Someones cooler came in the mail today... Who wants a Yeti Tundra 45?
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) announces new recreational fishing restrictions will soon go into effect for groundfish in waters north of Point Conception to the Oregon/California state line. The changes to the authorized fishing depths described below take effect Saturday, Aug. 25 at 12:01 a.m.

The recreational groundfish fishery depth restrictions will be as follows:

    Northern Management Area (Oregon/California state line to Cape Mendocino): Take is prohibited seaward of 20 fathoms (120 feet) in depth through Dec. 31.
    Mendocino Management Area (Cape Mendocino to Point Arena): Take is prohibited seaward of 20 fathoms (120 feet) in depth through Dec. 31.
    San Francisco Management Area (Point Arena to Pigeon Point): Take is prohibited seaward of the 30 fathom depth contour (180 feet) through Dec. 31.
    Central Management Area (Pigeon Point to Point Conception): Take is prohibited seaward of the 40 fathom depth contour (240 feet) through Dec. 31.
    Southern Management Area (Point Conception to the U.S./Mexico border): Take is prohibited seaward of the 60 fathom depth contour (360 feet) through Dec. 31. No changes are slated for this area.
    Note that in the months of November-December, allowable fishing depths in the Northern and Mendocino Management Areas will remain at 20 fathoms, and will not extend to unlimited depths.

The 20 fathom depth restriction is described by the general depth contour (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 27.20(a)). The 30, 40 and 60 fathom depth contours are defined by straight lines connecting the waypoints as adopted in Federal regulations (Code of Federal Regulations Title 50, Part 660, Subpart G).

Based on recent bycatch estimates for yelloweye rockfish (Sebastes ruberrimus) from the California sport fishery, CDFW projects that the harvest guideline specified in federal regulation for 2018 (3.9 metric tons) will be exceeded unless changes are made. Pursuant to CCR Title 14, section 27.20(e), CDFW has the authority to make modifications to the fishery to avoid exceeding the limit, and must issue notice of any changes at least 10 days in advance of the effective date.

Yelloweye rockfish are a long-lived, slow-growing shelf rockfish species that were declared overfished in 2002 and cannot be retained in the recreational fishery. They are currently managed under a strict federal rebuilding plan to allow the population to recover, which has required significant cutbacks to west coast sport and commercial fisheries for more than a decade.

CDFW urges anglers to avoid fishing in areas where yelloweye rockfish are known to occur (e.g., rocky outcrops and pinnacles). If taken, yelloweye rockfish should be immediately returned to the water with a descending device to minimize injury and mortality. CDFW also encourages anglers who encounter them to change fishing locations to prevent catching additional yelloweye rockfish.

Depends on what type of fish you are cooking.  There are really no secrets on cooking with a Traeger.  If you want a little smoke taste put it on smoke for 30 minutes and then turn the heat to 350 and finish cooking.  You will be able to Bake or Grill depending on the heat applied.  Go to for some great ideas on cooking fish.  You are going to love that Traeger.  Remember if you are looking it's not cooking so keep the door closed

Apple is great to smoke with any sweet fruity wood I have a Green MTN I love it because I can adjust it and check by wifi. Try a Marinated chicken slow cooked. And give it to a friend we did and he said that was a 600.00 chicken because he went and bought one. The best way to buy pellets is a group buy online last time we paid 13.00 for a 40-pound bag I bought 6 should have bought 10 for the yr.
