Thanks for any help....it will be appreciated
Shore fishing under Hoan Bridge,,,,,
Go with the hitchpins Rob pictured. They work great, and easy breakdown for transit. Skip the painters pole and locate an old piece of conduit, banging against the jetti walls is tough on your extension.
A bridge net would work better if you are fishing straight down. I have seen some cool baskets, too at high piers.
Much easier. And nut and bolt catches on crap easier, besides getting loose sometimes. I think menards has them.
I thought about those, especially as they would be a lot easier that a nut and bolt.
Which is better for an extension for a net handle (painter pole or similar): collar lock or pin lock? I'm worried about the collar lock not holding but I'm not sure if the pin lock would tear out after time. Or should I just get a nice handle from Drifter Marine and skip the painter pole job altogether?
If you need a back up site during the big festivals, a good south side location is Cupertino Park right next to South Shore Yacht Club, and the Jetty next to the Coast Guard station, and Sea Scouts facility.
If you don't use freeway, just get to Erie Street from 1st using Pittsburg, again look at a map.
If you need to get back south via Hoan, go all the way back to Michigan by Discovery World, then west looking for 794 east sign which will be a left turn. Good luck.
