    For Sale Fishing career is pretty much winding down...pics added

If he couldn't bring his "A" game it would then be no game. Glad you're still keeping a few setups for ( just in case ) and remember that there...

    Damn fishing was good back then... you could catch it all out of Long Beach. My father in-law as a kid used to ride the city bus to the harbor and back bringing rod, reel, and gunny sack full of fish home. Man how things have changed. Thanks for posting Mike

    favorite boat for 2-3 day trips out of San Diego

    2.5 day trips gives you the most fishing time for a short trip. Nothing worse than having to leave the fishing grounds early on day 2 when it's an afternoon bite.
