2019 Searcher Haul-out

It’s December and time for our annual haul-out at Al Larson Boat Shop in San Pedro, where wooden boats are treated with care.

It’s also time for the required annual hull inspection by US Coast Guard. Searcher passed with flying colors, even down to the check on near-original hull fasteners that were in pristine shape! All good to go for the 50—year old Searcher. We are kicking off our 50th year with a Tackle Talk at the Dock a Free event. Click here to hook all the details.

Tackle Tip Thursday Vol. 78 (Lever Drags)

Today we have Captain Art talking Penn Fathom lever drag reels. The first reel is a Penn Fathom 30 2-speed lever drag and the other is a Penn Fathom 60 2-speed lever drag. We have these bad boys on the boat for our demo gear. When you book a trip ask to try our demo gear, so you can try it out before you buy it. Did you know we are giving a Fathom away? Yes, you heard that right! We are giving a Fathom away to our lucky S.O.N.A.R winner. (What is S.O.N.A.R click here for full details.)We will be announcing the S.O.N.A.R winner shortly. Stay hooked here to see who wins.

Thank you Captain for the great tip and Penn fishing for the great reels. Looking for more Tackle Tips reel them in here.
