Re: New ZUKI 250....can't shake problems

I put on a new Df250AP last fall. The only problem on the sea trial was the motor cutting out after hitting 4200 Rpm. Took a while to find but there was a problem with the fuel line. Once fixed she ran perfect for 20 hours (Feds closed down cod fishing so the boat got put away in early Oct). The fly...

Re: Boe Marine here!

Welcome Brian. BOE marine supplied all the electronics for my Pacific in 2005. They were and are a great company to deal with.

CG Reauthorization Act of 2010 requires all commercial fishing vessels (I tuna fish commercially) to have one. I will need to have one installed before having the new mandatory CG dock side exam

Do you know where the outflow port is located on the hull?

Bilge Pump

I need to install a bilge pump in my 2005 Pacific 2325. I understand that Pacific is now installing them in their current models. If anyone has a boat with a factory installed pump I am interested in seeing some photos of how they installed the pump below deck as well as the placement of the outfow ...

Re: Filet knives

Dexter Russel 1378 for fillet and a Forschner Cimeter 10" for skinning (large fish).

I also bought a professional sharpening tool (EdgePro) that is the best on the market and actually works.

Been going 24/7 it seems the last week between commercial bass fishing, running some Cape Ann Kids fishing trips, and,my favorite, doing offshore ground fishing. In brief the fishing is fantastic with some big bass in the deep water, schoolies are in the rocks and offshore, and the best haddock bite...

Re: Slayin & Crushin The Bite Was On

Pollack fight harder than cod but I'd rather eat cod.

These fish were taken in 45 fathom but at this time of year (on a different piece of bottom) we catch them in as little as 15 fathom,

Fished two days in a row which was amazing in itself with the weather we have been having. On Saturday we took the long ride south and slammed limits of cod and all the pollack the guys wanted to take. Played catch release on keeper cod for about 2 hours after our limit was in the box.

Cod fishing this past Friday after the stormy week we had was on fire.

Bringing a knife to a gunfight wasnt planned but we sur...

I had charters on Saturday and Sunday this past weekend. On Saturday the bite was a slow pick at best. I had to go south of the BE to finally get on a halfway respectable bite and even then I was not happy with the catch rate. The NW wind started to pick up around 1000 and by 1230 being 28 miles fro...
