    The Liquid Coast Highway ran a lobster charter last night for six passengers.

    Left Long Beach at 5:30 p.m. Wind was blowing about 30 knots. Thank God we don't have to leave the harbor. Set our nets by 6:00 p.m. First pull was at 6:30. Got 1 spider crab, 2 rock crabs, 1 lobster and 2 starfish. Moved the hoops to a different area and re-set them. Nine blanks and one with a 4 pounder. Decided to try another spot. When we arrived, there were divers in the water so we head to another area. Arrived at the spot, set the hoops and let them soak while we all had dinner. All the hotdogs you could eat and all the beer you could drink while watching the Laker game (nice ring ceramony).

    After dinner, it was back to pulling hoops. Got 3 or 4 shorts the next time around so we re-set right back in the same area. The next pull was when we got him...a 10 pounder, weighed on a IGFA scale.

    Ended the night with 3 legals and lots of laughs. A good time had by all. Thanks Mark and friends for fun night.

    Hey Dave on a charter like that are you still limited to 10 nets? Did your sister get to get up and speak after we left last Weds? Wish we could have stayed longer. By the way I will not post up those pictures I dug out of Kellys purse while you were out of the room!

    Awesome catch!
    I was at my boat in Alamitos Bay doing some repairs last night... and even in the marina it was pretty windy! Trying to get the batteries back up to par.... and repaired a backup VHF radio. Now we're waiting for a replacement Rectifier/Regulator.

    I'm still 0 for 1 with the bugs ... Buddy did catch a Sand Bass in the harbor last week though :)
