You guys may find this useful. With the modification to this rod holder. It holds my rod very securely even when bouncy in choppy water at WOT.

We used to do a lot of bass and tope fishing from ribs and sibs when in Wales, we had 1 incident when the Mrs. was swinging a small bass aboard when it dropped off the hook and landed straight on the tube, snapping part of it's spine off in the tube. We always used a net after that.

There is a closer image in in the link. That is is a pocket right in the life jacket I keep some basic survival gear. I will also keep a more extensive a survival kit in a small daypack that serves a ditchbag/bug out bag (BOB).

Well, I didn't go hoop netting, but I did go wakeboarding this morning... 58 F water and 45 f air at sunrise. Defintely going to get a flotation suit for my longer range runs in open ocean. Thanks for the tip Sharkbyte. It may be relatively warm offshore in San Diego, but it's not like your body is going to heat up the whole ocean!

RIBase
Last year's fishing was particularly poor. Used to have a MkII GT, but the seams split. I repaired it - but being 3-4 miles offshore didn't give me the confidence to totally depend on it - so traded up.

Now fishing from a Zodiac Pro 7 Man RIB. Caught a decent pollock off West Loch Roag (Lewis) last year and loads of red gurnard. Also fish in the Moray Firth from Rosehearty. Nothing much, mackeral, dab, etc.

Hoping for better days. Still looking for another boat to come out with us so we can attempt the SS Fram (torpedoed during WW2) which lies 4 miles offshore from Pennan. Meant to be good for cod, etc.

Link for the SS Fram if you're interested.
