Sevengill Solo Success. Here Chad shows off some nice Sevengills he caught while fishing solo last week. The surf has been pounding lately and messing up a lot of the good shark areas.

It’s been a few months of rigorous use, but I am ready to write my review of the Coastline SurfSystem fishing “Back Pack” (I leave that in quotes as it is not truly a typical back pack). I received this fishing back pack from Ted Blake who designed this system initially to work the beaches […]
