    • One place I worked at years back had a public dock on Tampa Bay for shipping freighter loads of fertilizer internationally, and I was known to walk down and break out a spin rig after work…

      • I worked at a grainary in Stockton harbor. Our pier was big enough for ocean going grain ships to tie up. Grain was spilled into the water all the time. The fishing was most excellent there.

    • Went crabbing for the first time this last season. Got the bug and got a couple of surf rods. I still have to get really decent reels and lines for them. Have a trout lake not far from my house. Also bass.

      I spend a lot of time outdoors for a bay area city boy.

    • With an acetylene torch you can do some cool coloring with a lot of different metals.

      My friend’s wife borrows my torch from time to time for just that kind of thing.

  1. We are seeing more and more of the Sig 238/938 pistols
    I love my 938!
    I notice he keeps the extended, pinky rest 7 round mag in the gun, with the 6 round, flush fitting mag as the spare
    Seems to me that you would keep the smaller mag in the gun to enhance concealment
    Otherwise you would only need to carry all 7 round magazines

    • I have the 238 that I keep the 6 round with one in the chamber and the 7 round as the spare. 7 rounds to lockback, then 7 more rounds to empty. Shoot it that way at the range. Don’t know if it matters but the consistency makes sense to me.

    • “Is it just me or is that spinning reel mounted backwards?”

      The nicer spin reels have reversible controls, the crank can be on either side…

      • Years back, I had a nice Shimano reel that was *perfectly* balanced, unlike some American reels that have a distinct ‘wobble’ in them when reeling them in…

    • That’s the proper right handed configuration for a spinning reel. Papa started taking me when I was two. He swore by the old Mitchell 400’s and 410’s. There’s probably half a dozen in the basement that are 30 to 40 years old. Miss the old man, funny how a gun blog can get you thinking about fishing memories with your grandad.
