    Freelance 1/2 Twilight (9-10)

    Sand Bass used to be king of the Twilight trips. C&R should be a norm. Twilight boats seem to rely too much on the "one stop shop". Fishing pressure and El Nino have altered these spots.

    9-9-16 offshore tuna trip!

    Kudos to your rant Pgnracr. Nice job on the tuna. It's starting to happen. Funny to go from big BUT with 80lbs test to YFT and 15 to 20lbs test. Damn that micro bait.

    Catalina Ahi - 8/27

    Again, way to prove to find your own fish. You are a fish slayer, indeed.

    8/27 Not a Bluefin...

    That fish is usually on a bucket list within a bucket list. Super rare. Not quite the SoCal wahoo, but close. At least one can see Bluefin being a pain. You totally went "seek and destroy" on that Opah. Metered,jagged and hooked up. Couldn't be any more perfect.

    Newport 8/17

    Unnecessary killing of birds which would eventually lead to more closures. Respect nature, that's all. When nature's karma comes a-knockin', it is usually very bad. The ocean is pretty deep.

    The San Diego got em today!

    One fish per rod in early April is DEFINITELY getting them, considering the limit is two and the schools like to play hide and seek.

    Shogun 12/19 report

    I believe that calling the the group of fishermen on this forum a "bunch of slap dicks" is quite silly. These guys are on here because they love to fish and fish hardcore, no matter the conditions or the challenge. With the diversity of anglers, the smack talk banter and heated discussions, it...

    Shogun 12/19 report

    If I was on a boat full of experinced, old guard fishermen, I would take it as a sign to get my mental notebook out and go to school. The recess would be filled by hearing great stories from the teachers. The passing of good knowledge is a valuable asset. One should never turn down or squander...

    Shogun Guad

    Soooo, you wanted to report an epic trip where no one could handle there fish and people should fish on the Shogun. The Shogun's reputation speaks for itself. Glad that the trip was good, BUT maybe show some respect. Experience is a valuable thing and there is much more to a fishing trip than...
