Great work YE given the conditions. I didn't get much video. The sculpins have been particularly not cooperative lately. Nice Candy Stripe SJ!

Looking forward to the action tonight. Does anybody have a decent light I could borrow. My Salvo's in the shop.


I've got a sola on a ball mount you can borrow. Do you need spot or flood?
