    YT and Dorado 11/17

    The Color of a Dorado will shock me forever, especially when it just came out of the water, one dip to clear the blood and that could be a framed picture--yeah I know, this is "bloody" decks, but for the framed shot-you know what I mean.

    Redondo fishing 11/21/2020

    I guess I must swho my age, I love a bikini, but dental floss up the ass is not appealing to me--just looks nasty.

    You better not puke! DP 11.21.20

    Just my two cents--I have a dog--never been sea sick. But the other two dogs, get just horrible. Bottom line: I LIKE them to come, but I don't think any of them enjoy it all that much. Also, you got two choices, tether or not tether. If they go overboard--happened to me once, if they are...

    Redondo fishing 11/21/2020

    In person, it looks a lot better. Those two straps are massive; as you wait they slip one on fore, the other aft, then they tighten them--slowly and lift just a bit, making sure they have the balance point. When they do the lift, it really is very, very secure looking and performing. Check me...

    Refunds due to Covid

    Consumer protection people always advise the credit card, just for that reason, yet, I must say the very few times I had a solid case-the credit card people would simply refuse to back me. So I don't know. But I do think the good faith, for both the landing and the angler is to put it on a...

    Refunds due to Covid

    That is a constructive way to handle it--something other than keeping the money OR giving it back. Just apply it to a future trip--that makes sense and nobody gets hurt. As to asking the landing, so far no luck in getting a word back---but if I book a trip, I will ask for sure. Thanks for the...

    Refunds due to Covid

    For the safety of the fleet-for THAT, they will not let you aboard, giving your money back, THAT is a different question.

    Refunds due to Covid

    That's good to hear, but I wonder if it is a 5K "long range trip"--they say at 2 weeks prior to departure, you must be paid in full. I wonder, in that case, if the day you board, you flunk the test. I wonder then.... I got to say, I see the sympathy for the angler--and the boat/landing; after...

    How to avoid getting seasick?

    Six years later...they don't make Scopace anymore--nor any other pill form Scopolamine. One exception--you can go to a compounding pharmacy--but good luck getting a prescription to go there. Take Kaiser for example, generally they will only write a script for what THEIR pharmacy stocks--and...

    Refunds due to Covid

    If you have paid in full for a long range (or one day for that matter) on a Sport boat--and you flunk the Covid screen, what then? Do they keep your money or some of you money? I asked one landing--they wouldn't really answer me.

    Fisherman without license

    If you get stopped on the water by DFW--and some guy on your boat does NOT have a license, what is YOUR liability--as boat owner?

    Another super!

    Don't know how this guy did it--but I saw a guy in a small boat, not a lot of freeboard, he put the gaff in the mouth-no, he did not lift it himself, he just pulled and dragged it across the transom and slipped it in that way. Another time, I was with a pangero, he gaffed the head, and looked...
