I use the Mora fillet knife. Phenomenal for the money.
Gifted that one plus a couple of Moras to my younger Brother who's into salmon fishing by the No. Cal river property. He absolutely luvs 'em
Good to see you around here Kyle
I’ve got a really really old Spyderco made in Japan fillet knife that I freaking love! I’ve used it for a while and nothing else.
We drew elk and bear tags. Anybody else get anything good? I want to hear about @never.truly.lost 's sheep hunt when it comes time too.
I’m always lurking! I’ve been working so much the last few months I haven’t been able to really get out and I certainly haven’t been able to put my CPK’s to use. I see everything though
What's up Kyle! Good to see you around. Hope Arc Angel is taking off for you!
It goes.. slowly unfortunately but I still have the union to fall back on thankfully! Hope all is well Jonny!
This guy was fishing last night...
Once I get back from the trip I will do up a good trip report with photos! We need @Nathan the Machinist to make a Benchmade Altitude style blade in AEBL or D2 for us weight conscious caping people
I know you're still preparing for the hunt, but when I saw you mention it in the picture thread I was like heck yeah brother! That would be a once in a lifetime hunt for me here. It's one and done IF you don't die before you draw on sheep, moose and goat. As far as a light weight integral in AEBL or D2...…
It’s lobster ‘mini season’ down here in FL, and the bugs seem to be crawling around pretty good this year. We fell a little short of limiting out today, but I’m stoked to have grabbed this Slipper lobster along with all the spiny lobster. Haven’t seen one in a few years.
Nice! How big is that thing? Looks beastly.
Thanks! It was about 12” in length, and weighed probably close to a lb & a half. Their tails are wider than the spiny’s, and they taste slightly different. Some folks say it’s easier to ‘overdo’ them while cooking, making the meat rubbery, but I love em.

This redheaded stepchild has wormed its way into my pack as well. I grumble every time I look at the thing, but it works
I'm curious how you are going to manage your 220 grain vs 178 grain loads, i.e. carry a full mag of 220s to be removed when the 178s are needed?
Ya the OE is very unattractive and not a real knife but for its purpose it works.
For the ammo, I carry 3x4rnd mags so camp and hike in/ out the 220s are loaded; actual sheep portion just swap mags
Cool. I didn't realize the xbolt had a drop mag. Easy peasy
Yeah, as the owner of a resharp facility, I was diametrically opposed to that OE. But I agree, it has its place. Even if you carry it just as a loaner it's worth it. Keeps me from losing friends if I look over and see them abusing my good knife
Another day without hooking into any King Salmon. We caught a shit load of crab again though!
Yum, Dungeoness, my favorite!
Final test pack and sleep out in the yard prior to leaving for sheep!
