I built my own Yeti from a video here on the forum. I spell it Y-diy.

The Panga has given me 200 hours on the water! She rides great, handling all kinds of Central California seas. She rides really well up swell, but is a little challenged by a following sea. I was in 5-7 foot swells yesterday and have to really match the speed of the wave or she will slide sideways and dip in the trough. All boats have their pluses and minuses but overall she handles really well. I added a trolling plate to slow down the Honda so we can slow troll for Halibut and Salmon. Had this great catch yesterday and took home 24 pounds of King Salmon fillets, which in $28 per pound in store!

Nice fish Ron! I am in a tournament next week and a 10-12# king will be enough to win.

I can't seem to get many kings on Lake Superior.

They stopped stocking them years ago and I only caught one 7 pounder in my years of fishing it.

How did you catch them? Downriggers? Hoochies? Give me the full details!

Runnin lead core maybe?
