    8 Days and 1 Hour at Sea

    Awesome story and glad you guys connected. But how do you sleep on a world cat? Aren’t they center / dual consoles?

    People chasing tuna are really crazy. Parking lot 100 miles off shore.

    How do you feel about changing the swordfish bag limt?

    Sounds like a commercial vs recreational issue to me, far more than the save the ocean types who likely haven’t even caught onto the deep drop evolution. And yeah it’s a political competition over resources like most attempts to regulate recreational meat fishing in California. There’s some...

    Threshers galore!

    If you compared the catch count of boat fishermen compared to pier fishermen, you wouldn't be saying shit like this. People don't think. Pier fishermen catch like 1/1000 the amount of fish as boat fishermen, so if they need to be banned, guess who has to be banned first...? I used to be a...

    110 Miles for a Bag of Doritos 8/30

    Year’s not going to be the same as last; we’re heading into a likely La Niña and the wind’s been blowing hard for a week, fish are down at the moment but should be back for a short window before La Niña hits

    Not a report ...Bluefin in the channel

    3/4 day boats can go further than the San Pedro channel you know... Your argument would work better for half day boats.

    Sculpin Carcasses/Heads Wanted!

    We’re up to 10,000 rock fish a day for the past decade or so, but “stock is rebuilt”?

    Rock Hopping on Mother's Day

    95% of the commercial catch in Alaska is yellow eye: https://www.alaskajournal.com/2020-01-15/rockfish-closure-another-blow-southeast-fleet Yellow eye up there don't produce until 20 years of age and basically cannot stand any sort of sustained pressure, so I'm not surprised. You guys are...

    Extended bottom fish closure

    I went out about a week ago and didn’t see any of this magic rock fish abundance. What I did see was sea lions chasing rock fish on the hook; those dogs must be hungry as hell now that they can’t feed off of party boat bait trails. Bigger effect might be the lower commercial activity due to...

    Saturday Awesome Visability LA/Catalina

    Witnessed the same over the weekend, amazing views all around. I'd say it's mostly pollution, and this only scratches the surface of the effects. California used to have spectacular fishing along the coast and I doubt over fishing is the only reason it disappeared. Fish can bounce back pretty...

    San Nic lobsters?

    Santa Barbara Island is usually full of commercial traps, same with San Nicholas. I'd hit it the opening week of the lobster season if you're really into taking risks as you'll need a decent boat and plenty of gut to stay there at night when help's so far away. Places you'll be hooping are...

    Rockfish shallow to deep movements ?

    On a day to day, week to week basis... They move. That's all there is to it. There's a pattern but it's different for every species. Plus it isn't all that reliable. You could find a school of reds one day at 9 am on a rock, and then the next hour they're gone. That's why it's called fishing...
