Hey Rudy, I'll keep my eyes peeled for posts on our private CBOC forum. Can't think of anything offhand. I'll be selling my 2016 in the fall, but that's outside of your window and likely longer than...

Itrichel,

We will take every single one we can get each time we dive. It's one of my favorite fish to eat now. Our take this year is way down over last. Just not seeing as many.

I believe there is a stock tackle center that fits under the leaning post. I will check the CBOC forum and report back. A member just posted something in the past month or so.
