Would you be interested in doing this on a large hunting forum? If so, please PM me. (Mods: if this post is not allowed, please delete, obviously)
Welcome back. Prayers offered for you
If you're talking about the country, I believe that you meant to post this:
Hahaha. Thanks for sharing!
Answered in red above. Never fished with them, but have on 3 of the boats out of Emeryville. Good luck!
These guys would tax turds if they could. Arsehoes
The Emeryville guys were doing really, really well 3-4 weeks ago. They've slowed down a touch, which is normal.
Cool. Sundance is an awesome boat and crew :)
Really like the Emeryville guys. Fished on the Huck Finn many years ago. These days it's the Sundance (for salmon) and the Sea Wolf for bottom...
I've seen this one before. I may be able to ID it, with a bit more info.
Did it have an Australian accent?
Did it like to harass lesbian fish with...
Nice work! :)
Way to go Dad!
Surf fishing is on my to-learn list.
Damn straight. I'd like to choose to identify as *good looking male actor name here*
Changing my name doesn't change my looks.
Put another way, I...
Smart girl, your daughter :D
Buoyweather seems to do a good job :)
Cook it*. Clean it.** Freeze it. Vacuum pack it.
*The Sea Wolf out of Emeryville will cook your catch. I would imagine that someone out of HMB...
Had a Siamese that lived just short of 20
Way to go! :cool:
A tag on question, if I may: to those that have eaten both Atlantic and Pacific lobster, which tail meat is better? Thanks!
Eternal rest grant unto Bill, o Lord. Please bring healing and peace to his family. :(
Ahh, ok! Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to my question, fratello. :cheers:
But they are the same mammal, right? (BTW: I think that when scientists/mankind step in to save a struggling species, it is then that we are at...
Maybe a dumb question: how is this dolphin any different from other dolphins already studied (besides location, obviously)?
Great pics! Thanks for sharing. :)
900 columns? :eek:
Way to go!:cool:
Some day. :)
Must be nice to be able to fish in t-shirts and wearing flip flops. :eek:
I guess I will have to try and get down there. :)
Fantastic report! Thank you!
Outstanding video! One of the many reasons that I love salmon.
Always keep your mouth closed when fishing
Agree on skipping the jackpot. I always do. I am a fisherman, not a gambler.
(Not judging anyone who does participate: whatever floats your boat :D )
Son of a fish!
Beautiful reels. Lucky you. :)
Which boat? Are there 6 packs that do the trip to Ano?
Wow! Major slayage. :cheers:
Bongos? (I yahood it, with no success)
(Mods: won't bump again :) )
Have seen this happen up here, as well. Captain on a salmon boat got really pissed at a guy mooching in the trolling lanes. Really dumb.
1. bongos? :o :o :o
2. I would love to catch a WSB and/or calico.
Ok, I'm from norCal, so if these are really stupid soCal questions, please forgive me. :o
if you had to choose one place to go out of, which of...
Sorry about that :(
Found this on another board.
NB:I do not know him at all or the quality, or lack thereof, his work at all
I do them. But the process requires that I remove the meat first. Send them all to me. I charge nothing. :)
Outstanding fish and video. :cool:
Was that a vermilion at 5:46?
Awesome video! Thanks for sharing :cheers:
Thanks! :cheers: <---Can we please get the wine version of that? /Italian
Awesome fish! Attaboy! :cheers:
How good are they on a 1-10 scale, please?
Very nice! Take me! ;)
Nice! Thanks for sharing Dan :)
Love lings. They can be slightly-don't know the right word-mushy, maybe?
I'll take a vermilion, if I have to choose. Never had a calico.
Welcome aboard. :cheers:
It still won't let me in :(
I had just joined. Seems like really nice people there.
Thanks for the report, Mick. :)
Fantastic day! Bet you're glad you decided to go at the last minute. :D
Fair enough, Jeff :)
Jeff, I get that. But for up here, I could answer it pretty well.
Lings-Sea Wolf-Oct (Nov)
On the first you'll...
I am trying to plan a yearly trip. They will be down there a couple of years. :)
Say single day trip
Party boat is what I was asking about :o
OK, I have asked a similar question, but the people I will be visiting are moving to OC, so I will re-ask. :)
You can fish for only 1 type of...
Hahaha! Nice :D
Same thing happens to me the night before-even if I'm wearing the Transderm Scop, which makes you drowsy for the 1st few hours (which is why I put...
Good luck, Craig!
Yeah. For about 10 days. Any idea when/if it'll be back?
Yup. We were out for salmon Monday. Blue bird day. Whale and lots of bird clusters
Ahh, I gotcha.
That means that you started the thread and that you posted in it.
Only you see the your smaller av to the right of your bigger...
Just awesome! Attaboy!
Thanks for the report!
Holy, if you'll pardon the expression, cows!
Thanks so much for the kind reply! Not a big fan of them on the table, either, TBH.
You ended up landing your best catch. Attaboy! :)
Dennis, I know this is a really dumb question :o : why didn't you just land the marlin? Were they closed there? (Be nice, never fished for one ;) )
Are they cheaper than the patches?
This, dorado and Atlantic salmon are really the only three fish on my "to catch" list.
Gotta get on that boat...
Please post up a report, Jim. :)
I am at the age where watching the dog work is as fun as shooting the birds. Great job! :)
Any day on the ocean beats any day at the office. :)
Thank you again!
Thank you. :)
Does he have a website?
...north than Bodega, no further south than Santa Cruz. Who do you go out with (six packs preferred)?
Over to you :)
How many guys (please)?
EDIT: also, is this a private boat?
Any six packs targeting them successfully out of there?
Please make California at least purple again. :(
Nice job! Lucky you
Beautiful fish. Way to go! :)
Holy crap, that sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing. :)
Attaboy! One of my to catch fish. Outstanding:)
I've always wanted to shoot deer on the fly.:D
You are very lucky! Am thinking of doing this next year. The 5 Salmon Grand Slam.TM
Halibut, if there is time. Right now I'm at the dreamin' only...
Outstanding! Well done, sir. :)
My dream fish. Way to go!
Thanks a lot! On my "to catch" list.
Anyone ever fish the Rita G out of Morro?
Yeah, I know. I was hoping someone would say "hey, I know a boat looking for 1 more that day".
Ok, was too late for this weekend, but I will be back down there (SLO area) 19Aug2017. Problem is, the boats seem to already be booked. :(
So. Dang. Jealous.
Thank you !
The key is no blood. Zero.
I agree with the lightly seared approach.
Cut into big cubes. Maybe 2x2. Bigger if you like more raw fish. Sear on all...
Came across Anglers Journal magazine. This particular issue seems to be Eastern US focused. Is this the case with all issues, or do they focus on...
Great job! Beautiful fish!
Nice work! Where are they out of, Dan?
It's been so long since I've been up there.
Sorry for you loss
Eternal rest grant unto him o Lord...
Way to go! :cheers:
Way to go! Nice fish!
Wow, you guys did awesome! Way to go dad. Tell your kids Lou says "great job!"
Great job! I'm jealous.:(:D
Holy cow. Just awesome fish. Doesn't look like you got to rest much in between bites. :D
Well done! :cheers:
Outstanding pics. Thanks a lot for sharing. Some big uns there!
So. Danged. Jealous.
Attaboys Steve and Gregg! :cheers:
Yeah, Virg's is a good organization, in my experience.
Thanks! Going to try to squeeze them in. If not, later in August.
Yeah, I edited :o
Morro Bay. Lings would be nice, but whatever is really biting. :D
Yeah, I know this is late-just found out that we are going :o
Your ONE suggestion for a boat this Sunday (6Aug) out of Morro.
May I use that pic as my desktop?
Realistic me: surf perch
Unrealistic me: lings and halibut :D
Thanks. I was aiming mainly at NorCal and, say, north CenCal (Morro bay and north)
I tried googling for up here (say no further south than Morro), but found zip. :(
What size weight (please)?
Not sure if they even exist, but as I have never done it, I was wondering if guides exist in northern or central California for surf fishing.
Good news (I think :D )
Outstanding fish! :cheers:
Apparently BFT is better. I have never tasted one, so I can't say. Albacore seared on the outside and raw in the middle is so danged good, I am...
1. What a truly class act ! :cool:
2. Fantastic name for a fishing captain :D
Which month(s) best out of Ft Bragg for tuna, please? :)
On the to-do list
Watching for reviews
Are there any 6 packs that target them out of there in, say, late September through November?
Took me a minute.:o
Because I don't hang that way.:D:cool:
If someone figures this out, please let me know. :)
God is awesome. I am so glad for his recovery!
Nice! Keep on postin' 'em! :D
So a thumbnail, then?
Way to go!
Started this thread in multiple forums, this pisses me off so much.
Never, ever buy a SubZero unit. Total and complete suckage, the POS. That will...
I will. Thank you!
If I can get my ducks in a row, August. Looking iffy right now :(
Thanks Bob! I sure will :)
Not trying to be a smart ass, ok?
I've noticed that SoCal boats seem to load twice the anglers, but at about half the price of our...
Wow. Major props. Is your index finger sore? :D
I'm intrigued now.
First, thank you very much for the kind and prompt response! :cheers:
If I may ask another question (and I do not want this to come across as...
I've been watching the reports out of LB for a few days. Noticed that the recent reports list nothing but sculpin, and maybe 2-3 per rod. Is this...
Great report. Thanks! :cheers:
I've never fished with him before. He sounds like a top notch guy on the phone. Really looking forward to the trip. :)
Thank you, sir!
They caught a 26lber yesterday. :)
Duplicate post. Sorry
Great job! Thanks for a great report. :cheers: <--I'm Italian; mods could we please add the wine smiley?:cool:
I am getting page not found. FYI
Beautiful fish! Going out of SF Monday (finally).
Great job. Finally going Monday. :)
27lbs is an outstanding fish! Attaboy! :appl::cheers:
Where do you get the reports, please? Thanks!
Going to try them a week from this coming Monday. Wish me luck. Do they get a lot of tangle ups with that many guys? Do they mooch primarily? Thanks!
The tide is finally turning after this 8 year nightmare.
Thanks, sir. :)
First, not sure if this fits here. If not, my apologies. I guess you could call this a pre-Report :D
Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has fished...
Thank you, sir :)
Beautiful fish! Way to go, sir!
Thank you! :cheers:
Thanks a lot! Those look outstanding.:cool::cheers:
Nice fish, sir!
Complete class, sir. And this is why you were blessed. :)
How are they for flavor?
Any boats down there that target them specifically?
You could taste the fish. :)
Had the same dish at Mama's. Very good. :)
Any more? :)
Just to be clear, is it tuna or WSB or Dorado or is it some combination, and if so what?
I truly appreciate your input....
Just found out that we'll be in San Diego mid July. Would love to get a fishing trip in, as I've never fished out of there. Looking for:

Fantastic fish! Way to go!:cheers:

Welcome aboard Andrew :)
I would recommend trying various types of fishing with rent rods, deciding which one(s) you like and gearing up...
Nice job! Beautiful fish :cheers:
Beautiful fish! Attaboy! :appl:
How do the night tides look for July 4th weekend?
Never been on an evening (say 4 ish thru midnightish) fishing trip. So.
If you go on the same boat to the same place, which trip will produce...
Way to go Monique!
Alioto's is (well, I can only say was, as I haven't been in years) very good. :)
Holy cow! What a bargain!
What was the cost, if I may ask?
If you go, please post up a report. Really fond memories of Noyo harbor.
That far offshore in a yak? :eek:
The size of basketballs, my friend.
Lucky you! Any day fishing beats any day working!
Thank you for the opportunity :)
Wonder how the fishing will be this year?
Cool video. Thanks for sharing :cheers:
Can't beat that.
In boating, either :D
Always wanted to do this. I am jealous. Good on ya!
Nice fish, David! :cheers:
Outstanding Dan. May God bless you for this work!
I have fished with them before, actually Eric. Really nice people, but that particular trip was so so (Although we would have done really well if...
(mods: I won't bump again. Well, ok I probably will with a little luck, but not the thread :D )
It's 122 in Martha Stewart's house?
Holy crap. You could fry an egg in that heat. On your forehead.
Oustanding report. Nice fish. Attaboy :cheers:
Any suggestions for a party boat out of Santa Cruz?
A few additions:
1. I would really like to get lings.
2. I would prefer not to be shoulder...
Thanks very much for the opportunity. :)
Outstanding report, Josh. Very cool.
You basically lived the Japanese version of my dream Italia trip. Attaboy!:cheers:
This, and with the same sizes to, if you'll pardon the expression, boot.
*Lou ducks thrown objects*
Beautiful fish! :cheers:
Beautiful fish! Attaboy.:cheers:
Gotta get down there
Thanks! And to you and all the fathers here
Thank you for your service!
Thanks Jed !
Anyone ever fish with them? If so, how was the experience? Lings?
Suggestions for a better boat (if necessary)?
Yeah, holding the big boy like a dork :o
He was biggest fish, though :)
My daughter's 20+lb was her first chinook and 2nd biggest fish...
27 and 16lb for me
20+ lb for my daughter
13lb er smallest fish
On the Sundance out of Emeryville. Fantastic boat/crew. Highly recommended. :)...
No way. Chinook :D
Thanks, fratello :)
Thanks for the report :cheers:
Better luck next time...
I've been there! Very good, indeed. :cool:
Which restaurant, Mike? (Unless that is the name :o , then NVM )
Nice fish and great report. Thanks! :cheers:
Nice fish! Thanks for the report. :cheers:
I did the same trip on the Sea Wolf. We were lucky on the rock fish. Caught some pretty big ones. Great crabs. No lings, though
From pics only (I've never fished south of Monterey), it seems that the fish get bigger the further north that you go). I know that the biggest...

The Rita G on a half day trip averaged 9/rod, but only 3 lings :(

Great report and great pics. Thanks for sharing, Matt. :)
Way to go!
Beautiful. Nice work!
Beautiful fish, Ron! Good eats.
I desperately want to catch one. :o :(
Thanks a lot!
Great work! Thanks for the pics. The bright yellow one is insane.:eek:
Fantastic work :)
Nice work, Jake!
First, my apologies if this is in the wrong place. :o Please move, if necessary, obviously.
My request: is there any easy way for you guys to...
Thank you, Carrie. :)
Holy cow. Some beautiful fish (and a beautiful buck, to boot). Nicely done!
French bread, teleme cheese and bbq'd pork steak sandwiches.
Beautiful fish, Chris! It's my dream fish. I have to catch one.
Hahahaha. Glad you remembered it, Jim.
Jack rabbit is so good. Probably not soaked for a few days, though.:eek::evilimu:
B, hands down (IMHO).
Just curious what you guys think. :)
I'm kinda partial to those fish skeleton ones, although I have yet to buy one.

Tom Cruise knows, I'll bet. :)
Just to be clear, the WSB ate the mackerel?
Excellent! Beautiful fish!
Beauty! I have to catch one.
Beautiful fish! Attaboy!
I don't think that I've ever had one (WSB). I take it that they are tasty?
Let's call it your best surprise fish.
Over to you :)
Great report, Ruben. Thanks for sharing. :)
I am sure that the Professor will have it fixed in a jiffy. Unless he gets distracted by Ginger.
It would have never happened if that danged...
Man, do I wish that I could go. Next year, God willing. :)
So a cow is only a big dorado female? Or any species big female? Or something else? :o
This is fantastic news. Thanks very much for posting this.
Following. Great thread!
Nicely done, sir. :cool:
Holy cow, that sounds fantastic!
My apologies, I meant rank them :o
Would a mod be so kind as to edit the title?
Thank you very much!
Thanks. Good to see good retailers. :)
Thanks for the post. We can't b--- if this doesn't pass if we don't call.
Wow! Attaboy :)
I'm curious as to your thoughts on this. Over to you:cool:
Thanks for this.
Thanks Mike :)
CIH ? :confused:
Be nice :o
Didn't find anything when I searched
And know not no. Duh :o
I was hoping someone would say opah, so I could no where and with who :(
Lucky you! Just a great, great place. If you have any "secrets" (good places to eat, etc) and would like to share, I'd appreciate it. Via PM OK,...
How is the food there? Never tried it. Always wanted to. We go to Dockside.

I'm counting on that. :D

I have a choice for the first question, but no idea on the...
Do they catch salmon down there in early July? If so, with which boat?
Just out of curiosity, are there any non soCal mods?
An off CAP button?
God bless him. God bless you for posting this
Great stories. Keep a postin'
Thank you for sharing:)
Been a dream of mine for awhile. If you've been lucky enough to do this, could you post up a detailed report?
Us, too. Many more there than here, actually.
What part of Italia, Rob? Genovese and toscano here :)
I just hijacked my own thread :eek::D
I love how all of us say (subliminally?) that we're hooked. :D
Please call me Lou :)
Great story Greg!
I'm confused. :o
Thank you :)
Made posting the thread worth it, right there. :cool:
Do they fish for anything else out of there?
Great story, Brad!
Please forgive my ignorance :o, but where are the boats out of?
Thanks for the story. Eternal rest grant unto her, o Lord..
Another awesome story!
You guys are posting up fantastic stories. Thanks!
Great story, too!
Hahahaha! Great story. :D
I would like to hear your stories of the moment that you fell in love with fishing. :)
The more detailed the story, the better. :cool:
Attaboy! Beautiful fish, sir. :)
Understand where you're coming from certainly, but any fish has a "best months" profile. Infallible? Nope. But they can be reasonably used as a...
Are dorado do-able at the no SD locations?
And how do WSB rate for flavor (let's say chinook, or whatever your favorite fish is, = 10; pond...
Didn't write guaranteed. I wrote reasonably certain. ;)
My point is I don't want to go after, say ono out of say, SD if the chances of success...
Besides sand dabs :D
I'd like to pick your brains, or maybe benefit from your experience might be a better way of stating it. :)
I'm a norCal guy, but will be visiting...
Thank you very much! Awesome site. Positive repped you :)
Yeah, saw that. I've still only heard of it twice, in this thread.:D
Does the knot have another name? Never heard of it. :o
I'm looking for something different than the "usual" BBQ (which is absolutely fantastic-don't get me wrong).
Over to you
Thanks, Jim (just re-found this :o )
Edited my original post.
So best time for halibut down there, and with which six pack?
A recommendation as to the best boat/times of year to go after each down there, please.:)
Way to go Addy!
Nice boat, sir. :)
No problem. Great site.
I get Welung Chinook Slayer. What is that?:confused:
Outstanding report Alan. Thanks for sharing!
The Sundance did pretty well this past April. Just smaller fish. 10 pounders, a few smaller
The April fish tend to be smaller than later months.
Book the Sundance out of Emeryville. Absolutely top notch.
Can you give us (well, ok, me...
If it had line on it, I'm sure that it's mine.
I know, I posted the thread. :D
I was responding to the post that said that tuna was "the best tasting fish out there" ;)
Not trying to be a...
Not trying to start a fight/argument but chinook hands down. And I love tuna.
Indeed a mushroom hunter :)
Dang it. Could a moderator please edit thread title to SLO, not SFO?
I am wondering if:
1. they catch BFT or albacore out of the general SLO area (would be willing to travel a bit north or south of there)? If so,...
I'm talking whole tuna, not canned or smoked. Fresh, IOW.
Nice fish. Thanks for sharing! :cheers:
Consider other fish besides tuna?
*ducks thrown SoCal objects*
Address to send check?
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for posting these. Always a great read. :)
Or give it back to the people who actually earn the money in the form of a tax cut.
Could you release the next ones to me? :D
Beautiful fish! And such good eating. Nicely done. :)
Yup. Complete BS. Use the Tunnel money to fix existing infrastructure, dufus.
Considering doing a Crab/Dab combo on the Patriot out of Avila Beach.
Has anyone ever fished with them? If so, how was it?
Absolutely brilliant point!
This would be a nice problem to have. :)
Thanks. To be clear, I wouldn't be there (this time). It'd be her and her fiance
But requires a license....not sure they are ready for that plunge...
To be clear: one can use a sabiki without a rod, or no? :o
Do you catch anything besides mackerel down there from piers?
My daughter is in school down there and would like to give pier fishing a try (no license required there, right?).
Are there any reasonably...
Do you have any ground rat decoys?
How stupid was that?
I heard the lisp. :eek:
I'll start that thread next week :D
Over to you. :)
Please include fishing rod length and any other specs, please. :)
That's just plain wrong :D
Holy crap that is one huge halibut, Jon!
Post up your choices, please. If you could post up a story or two, that'd be even better. :)
Doing the same thing in the ocean. Twits.
The insulated ones. The "regular" insulation is the only one that I am familiar with-I have no experience for the subzero ones.
The new ones run...
Holy cow-awesome work. Again!:eek::cool:
Is it too late to make a prediction? :)
*ducks thrown objects*
Thanks for doing that! Outstanding fish!
Shalom! Welcome aboard. :)
Congrats! How do they eat up, if I may ask? :)
Nice fish! I'm jealous.
I believe they are docked in Lilliput Harbour.
Seriously: I hope that you find them.
Good thing that I got here late, then. :D
The original is still there. Reall good group of guys
Sniffer is a really cool place. :)
Ahh, ok. Thanks! :)
I apologize if I started a mess by posting this thread. Such was not my intention. :(
That is just wrong. :D
That was hilarious! :D --well until the HRC pic at the end where I threw up in my mouth:eek::ele:
Damn straight :D
Sorta on topic (hey, I started the thread, I can bend the rules :D ): do you BD guys do local (ie, SoCal, I would imagine) forum fishing trips? :)
It beats the alternative ;)
Absolutely fantastic rods.I am seriously jealous.
Thanks. Yeah, please post up the pics!
If anyone else has stories of the old/first days, they would be greatly appreciated. :)
Been here awhile now. Looked for a thread on this, but couldn't find anything.
Can you share how here was started?
Thank you. :)
Perfectly ok. You would target what one fish?
Where is that? I only know of the one in Italia.
I'll be right over. :D
You have to stay in one spot. And tell us which fish you'd target. ;)
OK, for the sake of discussion, let's say that you won a dream all-expenses-paid fishing trip of your choice.
The only stipulation for this thread...
Great report! Lucky you! :cool:
For what? Crab and bottom fish? With my luck I'd catch nothing but lings :D
Who else thought that it was going to end with one of those monster popping out scaring the crap out of you things? Be honest.
Who does that up here? :)
FWIW, Dan Hernandez (BD Supporter) is doing his first trip for 2017 down there for YT, bottom fish and maybe tuna in February. :)
Thank you for your service.
Hard to beat.
Thanks for the explanation, sir!
Always wanted to try that. What does it compare to, taste-wise?
Warning: if you answer "chicken", it's an insta-ban. :D
Thanks, Michelle :)
Your first fish as an albacore? Wow, that is awesome!:cool:
These are the correct answers, almost. :D
Lots of votes for WSB. May just have to try them.:cool:
Get him one of these. He might as well be comfortable. :D[IMG]
Jason, you duck hunt and fish? Are we related? :D
Post 'em up :)
1. First fish: a catfish on the banks of the Delta with my folks and my brother. Such great memories. They tasted so good....
Was the fight good?
I have always wanted to do that. Thanks for your reply. :)
Your avatar is epic! Hahahahaha!
Can be from shore or by boat.
(Mods: will not bump again)
Same for me, please. Also cost. Thanks!
*Lou successfully resists the urge to post "I like them mounted in the pot" and is proud of self*
They are awesome and really nice.
Awesome. Going out with them in April. Driven by Giovanni's a ton without stopping. Will plan to stop there next time.
They do. Much better, IMO. :) (well, at least the ones in SF Bay are better than the Delta ones).
Fantastic report! I have got to do this someday.
Very nice fish!
I try not to let things bother me. I guess you could say that I am FAC.
There are no fish in Iowa?
At least I thought they were cool. Figured it belonged in this forum because, strictly speaking, he was fishing. ;)...
How do they rate, flavor wise? Say a spec=10, cackler=5
Do you guys catch halibut down there in February and/or March?
Ok NorCal peeps (or anyone with knowledge of the area):
January through the end of March in the salt, you would target...
God bless you for doing this!
If I was closer to you...
Fantastic job! Do a chinook one for me. :)
Prayers offered, brother. Keep the Faith!
That's plain awesome. Good for him, and good for you!
Nice fish! Attaboy!
Send it back
Keeping it is stealing
Wait. Why is Santa in quotes? This isn't one of those "he doen't exist, Lou" lies, is it? :mad:
Duplicate. My apologies :o
Good eats. :)
Thanks, Jim. So are we talking around $200 per fisherman?
Jim, how much is a halibut trip with Jay? His name has been suggested to me several times.
Couldn't find prices listed on his website.
I am interested in going out for halibut in May/June (or other month, if you think it is better) out of SF.
Really like the boats out of...
Awesome fish, Kenji!
Holy cow, that all sounds awesome! Thanks
Always wanted to do this. Who wants to come down to NorCal to teach me? :D
Very cool! Thanks for sharing!
Mods: thanks for deleting the duplicate. My apologies. :o
Don't get me wrong: I love cioppino (and the toscano version-cacciucco). But I am going on a crab combo trip later this month and am hopefully...
I haven't noticed any problems...:confused:
From the DFW
Did a little research:
Opened from Pigeon Point to Point Concepcion: Aprii 1-Dec 31
Point Arena to Pigeon April 15-Dec 31
Dammit. So rockfish only out of Morro at Easter. :(
Yup. When do they reopen? :o
Do you know if they go after lings around Easter (ie, March/April)?
A follow up to my Monterey/Santa Cruz thread. I am more interested in catching lings (and bottom fish) than a crab combo thing. Smaller boat would...
Your work with children and fishing is just plain awesome. Keep up the great work, sir!
I've never had a problem, FWIW. I use FF.
Seems normal to me
I fish for something that tastes good-lings
Salmon 1st, but they are second
Maybe they taste different where you are. Leave them for me. Hugely uncool to shit on someone else's...
I agree with the two and 1.
Makes sense. Which means that it probably isn't.
Happily married to a fantastic woman; proud father of 4 :)
Not that there's anything wrong with that. Jerry Seinfeld
Did you target lings? How did you do? :)
Thank you both. :)
I have fished Stagnaro's before. Good folks, indeed. Reason I asked the original question was to see if they would be...
Looks like they have no dates where we overlap. :(
Thank you, though!
First, please forgive me if this is the wrong forum. I wasn't sure where else it would go. :o (Mods: if this is indeed in the wrong spot, I...
Roughly. I just won one in a contest, and I'm just curious.
What do Bob Franko rods run?
Beautiful fish, Jim! Attaboy. :)
Definitely booking with these guys. :)
Nice! Major props to you, sir. :appl:
Is this on Comcast?
Like them? Love them!
Is this a trick question? :confused:
It's for watching between fishing trips.;)
Obviously we can start with Sportsfishing with Dan Hernandez. Absolutely "must see TV" at my house.:cool:
What ever happended to Poveromo's show,...
I'd have been pissed if he broke that fish loose after that fight.:eek:
Holy cow. How many pulls were you out?
Seems to be the worst possible combination:
Catch and no release or
Catch and release it to the boat.
Either way-too much of a genovese to play...
Thanks to all the above posts.
@wils True. THWTH*
*They're Here When They're Here :D
I did indeed understand that. Thanks for the clarification anyway, :)
Ok, my general question was answered in my previous thread, narrowing my search. Thanks for that. :cool:
So I will narrow the questions. Halibut...
Wait. You just answered my question. I will start a new thread. Thanks!
Not up here. Around half that for a six pack
Nowhere near that up here
There ya go! :cheers:
Oops. Any time. Spring/summer most likely.
NorCal guy, but with a college student in the general LA area. Never fished down there.
3 questions, please:
1. Let's say that you can only...
Rule 1 of fishing: the bait has to be cheaper than the fish.
That will be all.
Cook it like you would a New York, and with the same seasonings. Awesome.
Thanks for the clarification Jim. I did indeed catch my coho(s) in a lake many years ago.
They do. They are ok to keep in lakes. Not sure about rivers, though, TBH
The spots on the tail are on both lobes, indicating (usually) a...
That's just nuts.
Well, ok, I guess not.
Be nice. I'll write it down and won't ask again ;)
Awesome report. Congratulations!
There is usually a time set, after which you can not edit a thread. Many forums do not allow you to edit a thread title, though. This is to...
The salmon cheeks are the best part. TM
I've been on the original HF. Planning to go out with them and/or their sister boat (well, actually their brother boat :D ) the Sea Wolf.
Welcome aboard! Which boat(s) do you go with for the pott lucks? :)
All awesome pics! The top one is wallpaper material.
One of those "have to do" decisions. Good for them.
Great report, Warren. :)
This report is for September 9, so forgive me for the tardiness. :o
My daughter (first time out for salmon) and I went out on the Sundance (a six...
How far out were you? (if you'd rather not answer, that's OK :) )
Should gone out to get one, dang it :D
Love the Portugese!
Thank you, sir!
*ducks thrown objects*
I'm Italian. Laughter never happens. Awe, maybe :D
Cool fish! Thanks for sharing. :)
Fantastic pics and report!
I am seriously jealous about the crawdads.:D
I know that they don't, but I wonder if this would work. It would get you past the breakers. Again, I am intrigued. Will get back to you.
Had a second to yahoo it. Now I'm intrigued. I wonder if they could be used for surf fishing?
I hope they have a volume discount on 'em, if that's what they're for. :o :D
Be nice, please:
what are they for?:confused:
My bro went out for them out of Emeryville a few years back. So not all that unusual. :)
He needs to go and buy a lottery ticket!
Wow, that is really cool! Thanks!
May I post it to another forum?
NorCal question, so be nice: :)
How are they flavor-wise? Beautiful fish joker63, BTW!
Holy cow. Awesome fish! Congratulations!
I will echo the praise of the Sundance. Fantastic crew. Comfortable. And they catch fish.
Probably mentioned already, but we have had a good experience on Stagnaro's. :)
