Biggest Leopard I've ever seen, that's for sure.
Great trip brother!
Nice work Reuben!
Great report as always!
Yes, the spring halibut bite is on!
Nice work Brother!
Fun trip Rod...the spring bite is here.
Nice grump Skipper...WTG!
Deckhanding on the "Sweet Teresa" for my brother Rod...going to be an honor and a privelige, not to mention a lot of fun. See you guys on the water!
I'd do it over again just for this view...
Great ride skipper!
Great report skipper!
Awesome boat and skipper...Capt. Rod is the best at what he does, and you won't find a better 4-pack operation anywhere in southern California.
Awesome work guys..WTG!
Nice work Brando, thanks for the good news.
Nice work Skipper...again!
Another great bay trip Rod...three in a row on the butts (and counting), and another young angler hooked for life.
Looks like a good time there Chris...nice job!
Awesome report James, WTG!
Nice work Brando!
Frank is a great captain and runs a very good open party operation...one of the best and cleanest in the entire fleet IMO. He's got a real nose...
Great video, perfect release!
Nice ling...good eating right there. Congrats
Great bay trip for sure...lots of variety and plenty of big models to pull on, and a very happy charter group for sure.
Nice work skipper!
Nice work gentlemen.
Very cool...nothing like panfishing in the summer. Congrats on a great trip.
Nice work...that's some good eating there.
Hey Curt, if you want to just chill and still fish the surf I would recommend the following:
1. Sand spike
2.10''-12' spinning rod, and reel...
Nice work as usual!
Not a cheap reel today...nice work!
Nice outing there...congrats on some good fishing.
Nice work guys...looks like fun to me.

Great report as always Ron. Interesting tidbit on the DFG...
Looks like another good trip!
That thing's a fat pig! Congrats.
Fished IB on Sunday afternoon. Looking for MR CROWLEY but I think I got there a little too late. Nothing serious today, just wanted to get out...
Got this photo and story in an email from a friend in Philadelphia, PA. I'm not sure if the story (or the photo) is real.
Nice work Sean...missed you on Sunday. I got to the beach around 1:00 pm after the tide had changed.
That's a nice looking rig!
Nice work there...kid looks stoked!
Looks like a small jack mackerel, called "Spanish mackerel" around these parts.
Very nice work!
Nice James, I hope those pesky lizards and smoothies move on soon.
Good news. Very nice!
Have not seen or heard of any yet this season.
The "L" word...that's some funny :shithappens: right there.

Great post Sherm.
Nice work Amir. WTG on finding the good fishing where it is.
Thank you for the update.
It's that time of year Sean...get out the long poles and heave some big baits out there.
No BS there. I find seals and sea lions with big chunks missing down there myself on occasion, but a chewed up dolphin would be new to me.
Yes it does.
As Carl suggested, just string the corn onto a baitholder hook and chum (where legal, of course). Also, "Uncle Josh" carp bait works very...

Park on the street near Carnation and Seacoast, walk down to the beach, and head north to the jetty. You'll see the surf camp sign. I'm guessing...
Come on down Chris. There's plenty of room and it's going to be lots of fun.
It's the best investment you'll make all season when it comes to SUCCESS at putting fish on the deck.

Fished the Jig Strike many times back when I was a paying customer. Great boat and captain(s)/crew, and always on the fish.
It would be awesome if you could make it J.
I'll edit rule #6, make it easy on you James. Thanks for the feedback all (and Carl as well).
1. Fishing starts promptly at 8:00 AM and ends at 11:00 AM, be at the north jetty/surf camp by 7:30 AM to sign in and go over the rules.
Trying to put together a team right now...I want to do both.:jig:
Surf Camp area I think.
What's the "surf slam"?
No worries Simon. Do an internet search on the topic and you'll find that the outfall probems with the TJ River are nowhere near what they used...
Whatever you need skipper.
Does this mean you're in Chad?
Yeah I like the categories too, but then there's potentially three winners instead of an outright winner. $.02
I'm thinking a C&R tournament, gentlemens rules. Bring your digital camera and a tape measure...total length of your best three fish. All game...
Yeah, should be fun CJ. Hell, we don't even have any "rules" yet...just follow this thread for further developments, shit talking, etc.
June 27th, fishing starts at 8:00 am. James is going to post a sign up sheet in this forum.
Yeah right...I'm thinking more along the lines of something small and fast...working on it.:)
You fishing the YT Shootout as well Stan? I'm working on trying to get a team together...looks like a lot of fun. Could be a busy, and fun, weekend.
Stan said high tide's at 10:30?, so...fishing starts at 8:00am...or?
You wanna' make a sign up sheet James?
...now get over to the Surf Fishing forum and sign up for the IB surf fishing tournament.
Very nice Tony...
Way cool, thanks Dean.
Bring it on Carl!:finger:
Maybe Carl or someone else has a suggestion...
IB would be fine by me since it's my home turf, but whatever location gets more guys out there on...
June 27th sounds good to me. I'm in.

Nice way to show off the catch...great job!
Congratulations on your first yellowtail Steve!
Nice report Captain Rod...here's hoping those fish get going soon in a big way, and we all knock 'em dead when they do.
I can't think of a better use of "down time". Great pic. Great job on getting out there with the kid!
Nice job on the yellows. That boat and crew have definitely paid their dues to put people on them so far this year. Congrats to all !
I've gotta' give you an A+ for that concept! I hope you fill the boat with anglers and fish.
Right on Tues. I'd be there if I didn't have to work. Enjoy your stay in San Diego man.
That tournament looks like it would be a lot of fun...if only I didn't have to work.
Knock 'em dead Harry!
At least you got to pull on something heavy. Good job gettin' out there.
Read the article this morning...complete B.S. reason to fire anyone, let alone two of IB's finest.
I'll be sending those emails here shortly....

Too hardcore Mark! The crappy weather really put the brakes on that bite, but hopefully it will come back strong here withinn a week or so....

Figured the weather would shut the bite down. Hopefully it will pick back up this coming week sometime. Thank you for the report!
Trophy fish right there, congratulations!
Nicely done report J12, thank you!
Very nice! Thanks for the report.
Your legal catch, your decision...period.
The entire season was great for us last year, but if I had to pin it down...I'd say August 15th through September 15th was the best. It's...

Great job on the squid Rich!
Great work on the bugs! The weatherhas been awesome all week.

Nice yellowtail !
Thanks for the report...it has been crazy out there for sure, lot's of cool stuff going on.
Awesome rock cod bait. Use the tentacles as they are, and cut the fins and mantle steaks into different shapes i.e., torpedo, fish, small squid, etc.
Nice job on the inkers!
