Mac Arthur Park Fish Socking Update

 I have been trying for many years to get fish stocked into Mac Arthur Park so that the local kids would have a place nearby where they could walk to and go fishing, I'm glad to say that day is finally here!

Here's a video blog about using your Raymarine E 120 at Night

There are many reasons why I feel everyone should have a quality fish finder / GPS on their boat. Here I talk about one of the features about by Raymarine E 120 that I really like. As  much as I like this unit I'm looking forward to fishing with my new wide screen digital Raymarine unit very soon.

Lobster fishing last night

The lobster fishing last night in Long Beach harbor was pretty good. We started at 6 PM and by 10PM we had nine nice size lobsters in the boat, you can see pictures on my face book page, just click on the link below.
