Wow what a great trip!
I certainly don't hate you, Corey, as many people likely don't (maybe just a little frustrated when I'm watching you catch my favorite fish from...
Nicely done! A trip with variety.
I heard the Long Point MPA area was the place to be! LOL
Better luck next time!
Nice report, Dan!
Limit style fishing right there!
If he does and goes solo hooking a behemoth, put the PFD on for Gods sake, Corey! :smoking33:
A 2 hour fish is a worthy fish! Congrats!
Great photo Michael, and thanks for the great intel!
Send those schools about 40 miles north when you get a chance, right around Oceanside -...
Congrats! Some nice eats you got there.
I'd rather fish for brute yellowtail from a skiff, thank you very much. I like my odds...
That’s a nice day of fishing!
The Marina Coral is pretty nice as far as accommodations to stay at. I would guess you could find a 6 pak operation referral through the hotel....
That brown one with two eyes on one side is an adult sand dab. Great eating.
Very nice! Best of luck with the hip work. You'll be reeling in no time.
You can't even share half of a 110 # fish, but kudos for trying.
My two pesos...
I admire the captain who chooses a different course for pay dirt. Sort of why I prefer looking for paddies in the open ocean over...
I don't see the El Capital? LOL
Nice work, Vic! :cheers:
Your buddies may decide to get their flakey asses out of bed next time...
No photos of the 25#? fish? LOL
Can you say El Nino...? Wowza!
Some funky looking clouds in that first photo?
Sorry for son's loss. I have felt it many times.
I agree the cracker size hamachi should have been released. Over 10 lbs is when they just start feeling their oats and are able to reproduce....
Wow! That’s a life-timer, John! My hats off to you brother.
Good effort going solo and decent reward!
Dude that is awesome!
BS without pics, John! LOL
Nice work, regardless! :appl:
I’m still hoping for my first keeper and you pull in 2 like it’s second nature. Whatever...:appl:
Good points, Ashton. The negative experience I had last year was a 1.5 day on the ........, with a full load of 30+, wide open skipjack and yft...
Let me add, there are several great sport boats I continue to fish because they do it the right way. But man how those unfortunate trips make you...
That’s real sad, Mike. I hope they figure it out. We need nature, but nature definitely does not need us.
That pig is tilting the boat! Sweet!
Not legal. And the next fucking deckhand, cook or captain I see fishing on a boat I paid to be on is swimming home. So sick of that crap. I was on...
Awesome Cory! Glad your doing great!
Nothing over 5 pounds means no more Calicos for while! LOL
I’m not surprised you work for a meat processor....
They are contact lenses
I call BA without pics...
Nice report! That boat will get you where you want to be - yesterday. :cheers:
Did you guys realize you all have the same sunglasses on? LOL
Fido at the helm!
Great ceviche! (just don't cook those things)
Sweet day to be on the water and dinner to boot!
Seeing those photos makes me wonder about my own sanity. :eyepoppin:boobies::drool:
I like the fact you have 2 islands in Cat and SCI within a decent reach of each other. Warm water species seem to migrate up the canyon in and...
The Patriot needs to add some wood to those icy cold rails...
I guess the fish are really big there...dang dude!
I concur :smoking33:
Hard to beat a wide open paddy bite! Nice work, buddy!
Hat's off to you, Corey. We should remind ourselves 365 days a year why we are able to live the life we do in the USA. I use the day to visit my...
Thanks, Ron! Hope to see that shoulder in action on the Big Bird this year!
:appl:Nice day gentlemen! The last photo of the big goat, biscuit and mossy says it all!
Biscuit with extra gravy!
San Clemente north by the train station at Pico.
After fishing straight mono for many years, I began using braid with flouro top shots on most of my set-ups (TLD 25, Torium 30/20/16, and Tranx...
:appl:Decent grade! Those sandy-looking YT on the deck look like they were caught from shore.
Looks like great late summer or fall fishing? Seas were perfect with an open yellowtail bite! Simply awesome!
Seems like that’s when our last local bite was...40 years ago. :eyepoppin
Hmmmm...I think I killed it that year! LOL
Very honestly, I think we were in a La Nina state at the time, but the surf was good! See Jason...
A few things I like about this video:
#1 - instead of trying to fish 2 rods at a time like my bonehead friends do sometimes, you...
Look for diving birds, lots of tidal movement, slow troll a live mac (they are pretty durable in a 5 gallon bucket if you can sabiki some bait),...
Just 25 knots or more? Yikes! You guys did make a good day out of it! Thanks, Dan!
Butt on the plastic, nice!
Heart break at 13:08! Felt that short-term agony many times, Corey. The first day you guys didn't have a breath of wind - nice!
Nice Eric! And crackers for the kid! :cheers:
Good work, Rodney! Welcome and good luck!
Thanks, Lal! Was hoping you would keep us posted. Good vibes for Cory!
The best fish to pull on, IMO! Nice day of fishing with friends!
Nice Dave! I was playing air guitar for 4 minutes! :git:
That’s a nice trip!
Nice day with a little variety!
I'm Republican, and wish I were a boy again. Thanks for chiming in Ricky.
I'll bet Bozo the Clown has something to do with this...LOL
Cory on his speedy return...
Nice looking potato sacks!
Unwanted buddy-boaters are like the fleas of the thousand camels infesting your armpits. Simply uncomfortable knowing they're there.
LOL My sarcasm can be annoying at times. Skol, Jason!
Does anyone know what is happening with all the old posts?
Looks like a nice day for checkers, Dan! Nice to see you out there making it happen.
And may you have many more yellowtail to come, grasshopper.
Great experience despite the loss.
I tip my hat to you sir
Bet that young man will appreciate a rod belt now!
With 90 around the bait tank, probably best to form a single file line...:eek:
Probably run into a distant cousin.
Like father, like son! Nice report!
Nice grade! On the coffee grinder, even! LOL
No blast if you don't cast! Nice YT!
Well wishes for a speedy recovery, Cory! You're as tough as you are salty, so we will see you in due time!
Mexican rockfish already sprinkled with chili and lime is what it looks like!
Not sure how to say it, but it appears to becoming the norm. WTF?
[ATTACH] No disrespect to the OP.
Amazing how a tiburon post wakes people up, though. Probably a good thing. Respect.
I think that was a same day trip! Even better.
I believe it Nick, although Jason pointed out it is an old video. I’m 55, and I remember as far back as Catalina summer camp when I was about 8...
Yeah you better get this post moved, Randy, or Cory is going to bust your chops!LOL
That’s one of the best full day tuna trips I’ve ever seen. Those are not small fish by any means!
Great report and nice pay dirt!
Nothing wrong with sharing numbers IMO. It’s a big ocean.
That’s crazy. Here’s the GoPro video from the forum.
Truly hoping that eel became table fare and not photo carnage.
Nice new avatar, Victor!
Crazy awesome trip! After the past few years, I feel like these fish have found a new home in SoCal. Just need to keep our over-seas neighbors and...
Ah yes, the aroma of the tailgate fillet!
They will give the keys to a boat to anyone - anyone.
Sounds like a nice trip! Congrats on getting to pull on some mossback! My kind of therapy.
That’s a nice day of linging!
Classic experience Sam! Better hold on to that lucky rod & reel, and hold on tight dude!
Could be better than Naked and Afraid. Unless one is fishing naked, they could simply change the venue and keep the name.
Did someone say kelp paddy yellowtail?!?! Singing my song. Thanks for the heads-up!
Perfect grade IMO! Congrats on being a “news-maker”!
Hmmm..how about a float tube next time just for shits and giggles?
April barries bring May mossies...
Ah yes, the all too familiar dues trip!
Awesome stuff Corey!
Is that the new sled with the blue interior? Nice!
Those green, lush islands will look like brown desert dirt in about a month.
Nice salmon fishing on nice seas! :appl:
Whopper of a day right there!
No need to hold those fish against the camera lens like too many others do, they are a good grade!
I still prefer the Oasis. Too many friends and memories there to have us go elsewhere.
Good luck, Shon.
I wonder why there are so many boats out there?
That's a nice day!
Wish my brother would fish with me! Still not giving up on him!LOL
Nice, Don! Nothing wrong with an 11 hour plunker bite!
I think you found a new avatar photo!
Those lizards are plain old annoying. Congrats on the butt. Kudos for taking care of your pal!
Well over 50. Congrats Brett!
Awesome report and photos! That empty chair photo says it all!
It's the "look at me, my boat is bigger" syndrome. They should walk the plank...
Hopefully scatter another 50 miles north of San Diego, right around the kelp in the Pendleton area, if I could be so picky.
This could be the first ever pose with a bluefin next to a fire hydrant. :appl:
Good news. Switch flipping to "on" in April. Hola El Nino. Let's go dodos.
Nice report! What family memories are made of.
I've been using some of my same reels and rods for decades, they look great and have fought countless battles. I treat them with the same care as...
Dude that is awesome! :appl:
That's a nice day of fishing!
That is a fun-size turd, no doubt!
Been on plenty of sporties, but never had my rods stacked in a pile like that mess. Rods guides can certainly get messed up, and nobody likes...
How did you do?
You won't know if you don't go. And Cat is a great place to go!
Good attitude to consistently raise that awareness, Stevo. I'm okay with keeping a couple 5# fish if that is what the day has to offer, but no...
Nice going, Anthony! Looked like a perfect day with your son. Good luck on the next trip.
When a 2 year old thread gets revived, that tells you something, but not sure what that is. :smoking33:
Some fish is better than no fish!
Nice ling Cody!
Love cabrilla fishing! Great write-up.
That’s an XL lager!
Oasis will accommodate you with everything. Plus Neky makes the best margaritas in Loreto. Clam bbq on the patio every Saturday night with music....
Try El Peddorito. Not sure how to get hold of these guys, a couple gringos, but they post a lot of YouTube videos and seem to run a business with...
Bring the kitchen sink and you'll be fine.
Nacho may or may not have squid.
Hmmmm....with all the nice fish photos, maybe time to update the avatar of your choneys. :eyepoppin
You're a smart man for staying put, Matt!
Checkers anyone? :appl:
120 YT is a good day, regardless of the load.
:urno1: Awesome! Dude has a new fishing hat and full of stoke!
Nothing more fascinating for a little rookie than hanging by the bait tank!
Nice trophy there, Jim!
The yellowtail switch has flipped to “on”
Nothing wrong with a wide open yellowtail bite!
I love the Coronados! Nice work gents
Now this is funny! A friend of mine (about 45 years ago) had a camp counselor named Joe King. They just kept saying "you must be Joe King". I...
Nice fishing, Jonathan! I'd take inshore popper fishing over cow-fishing. Looking forward to seeing your local posts with Steven this season....
I do! They will be fishing somewhere between here and there for sure. The fish show up to this area every year now.
Nice trip. You must hear it all having a birthday on April 1.
Those boat burgers always make my home-grilled burgers taste awful. I always thought someone should open an on-the-water, to-go diner boat during...
At a boy, Cory! Nice itch-scratcher for sure!
The man used to own the Royal Polaris. I think he already knows what a real boat (and charter) are.
Someone’s a little bitter.
Thanks for the post OP.
Another 5 year old post comes back to life....
Dues paid and them some, Mike! This was a hard read knowing you typically have something in the box.
That's good stuff right there!
Alfred Hitchcock just turned over in his grave.
My go-to bed and continental breakfast...with free WiFi
Good grief this is a tricky one. Some sort of hidden message or something.
My favorite gear to shift to...overdrive.
Yes that is “legal size” and then some. :appl:
Here’s my two cents on the bag limit chat...
Good stuff Axel!
Non-stop checkers. Good stuff!
It’s a crack up to see old posts revived to live another day. Priceless
I work directly with my friend who charges $250 for the day. Through a hotel the same panga will be about $300. If you work direct with the...
That is one big sheepshead!
Got get’m Frank! The place looks incredible!
Nice report, Tomo. Great looking stripers!
Thanks, Mike! Missing the tequila and lime already. But I'll be back in 3 months.
Hot pink? LOL
Thanks, Mike. Considering how close LTO is, it would be a great call to take your wife down there. Inexpensive, beautiful, sleepy town with plenty...
There were a couple guys on one boat on day one that caught 8 fish in about 2 hours on the srambled egg surface iron. We didn't have any yellow...
Thanks, Corey. I do feel lucky.
This was my first time back to LTO since 2013. Watching over my dad with a flurry of health issues at 83 took...
You’ll be glad to did, Jon. IMO it is better than the big city of Cabo. No prostitution, spray paint on the wall or any kind of criminal activity....
Thanks Jim! I’m ready for more freight trains!
Here you go...https://www.vrbo.com
Noah aka “Neky” has been running that bar for 40 years and makes an awesome handmade margarita. So many memories there!
Glad I could get you pumped up! We stayed at The Hotel Oasis as we have for every year we have been there. They will make all the fishing...
Smart man. Good luck Fred!
Thanks, Chris! Get your butt down there, you know you will be glad you did!
Okay, I realize this is not SoCal, but it is Baja "Cal", and I figured the forum I frequent the most needed a little preseason jump-start.
I love freight trains! Congrats!
Good to see you out there,Corey! The ocean is waking up.
Been to all 3, but Loreto is hands down your best bet IMO. In fact, I’m here now ready for spring yellowtail fishing beginning tomorrow! Yes, it...
That’s a good day of fishing!
Some decent butt posts lately! Congrats!
Nice hauls! No apology necessary!
The other kind of trolling! LOL
I have been fishing with the same captain and his brother for over 20 years. His name is Placido. Number is 613-114-35-05 (cell). Very...
Nice day of fishing!
Nice snappers indeed! Heading to Loreto next week for some 80 degree relief and hopefully a furious bite!
I say go for it. Just don't get caught.
Congrats on the PB! Beauty!

Yeah let’s just wipe out the entire ecosystem so nobody has anything to fight over.
Harassment is not nearly enough for morons cutting shark...
Awesome! Weather looked spot on!
Lizard fish are also open year round, FYI. No limits either.
Vic, I’ll take mine unfiltered please!
Biggest Sandbass I’ve seen a while! Nice day of fishing right there!
White shark. Dean or Mac?
God is great!
49.5 # for sure! Congrats
You will find structure where there are lobster pots. Also the outer edge of kelp beds.
Ignore the critical jerks on this board. Nobody owns...
Awesome Noah! Even better with your pop hanging with you!
Sick people. Probably got Vaseline all over his mouse, too.
That is a big red no doubt!
No quit in this report. Way to stick with it! = reward
Nice! (And your holding it just fine)
Details in link below - PM me if you are interested.
Doesn't matter what size - beautiful fish! Looks like it was great day to turn over paddies.
Smart men, you are.
Fair-weather anglers stay home...LOL
Too many fair-weather fishermen miss opportunities like this.
Great report, great results for your effort! If I still had by boat I’d be out...
One life feeds another. Awesome, Cory! Even if that was the only fish caught...
Nice! I'll be back for that one in March.
Finicky bastards! Thanks for the report.
We need to get this dude involved. This is fricking priceless.
Speechless and envious. Great report as usual, Erik!
Spoiled rotten are those San Diegens!
Just don't mention NFL football to them...:eyepoppin
I'd crank hundreds of feet for a couple nice lings like those! :appl:
Maybe the clowns were late for the circus? LOL They'll give boat keys to...
Doubters are funny. Especially when they're trying to remove their foot from their mouth.
The past half dozen years the tuna, whether YFT or BFT, have been around during odd and normal times of the year, at least as I recall anyway....
Nice size lingers! :appl:
1 for 67. You’re a lucky man.
Cold? Head to my parents home state of Pennsylvania and that will change your mind, unless you prefer ice-fishing.
Have a superfantastic 2019!
Nice job gentlemen! Time to get out the fryer and tortillas!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Ronny!
Just in time for the rockfish closure. Sounds good to me.
Rachel Ray's days are numbered, LJ.
Nothing compares to juicy lizard fish. End of discussion.
Future Angel right there!
Looks like a nice day on the water, Mike. Great job on the release. Looks more like 200#
Nice work gents!
Oh the agony of defeat! Followed by an f-bomb. How many times have we all experienced that? LOL
I couldn't tell you where, but I am firm believer it cat food chumming while using the sabiki. Good luck!
Good effort, Cory! With this revitalized El Nino kicking in, and this being the established P.E.I. west now, I would keep looking.
I truly wanted...
Reuse, recycle, repurpose.
Thanks for cleaning up out there, Doug!
Some people can't live without a security blanket and nipple.
Nice bugs, by the way.
Bycatch of a lifetime! Congrats!
Looks like a great time, Mike! Thanks for the post.
Mystery fish always keep you coming back to solve the mystery...or not.
Great fall conditions!
That’s a lot of meat
Beer is our friend
Well done Cody! You’ve had a very successful year for your effort. Well deserved.
Well done! Late season missies!
Great trip and perfect grade ahi!
Happy Thanksgiving, Corey!
Great report! :appl:
I think the young lady to the left believes the day of fishing ain't happening.
The folks at the Embarcadero or shipyard will assist. Better off checking the straps, though.
Beautiful fall fishing at it's best!
Great report for 11/15. There are definitely some upsides to El Nino. Predicted to linger into 2019.
Those triggers will chew your pliers in half. Great ceviche IMO
They are central pacific, buck-toothed walrus. Everyone should know that. Geez
Nice going, Rich!
Amazing how these grande BFT have found a new home in our local waters, or maybe they finally returned home. Who cares.:smoking33:
Nice day! Rick is a great skipper and fisherman.
Whatever works (despite the inevitable skunk sessions) I like it!
Paint it white, maybe a little reflective tape for the bling factor, and with...
That's a good day of fishing!
Nados boners (can) rule!
Thanks for the report and nice photos!
Were they trolling plugs or on the surface iron?
BD will only let me like this once. Sorry.
Fricking awesome dude! :cheers:
Good luck, Phil!
Post your report in this forum when you get back!
Good to see you and your brother out working those biceps again Corey!
That explains the $10.00 grilled cheese sandwich I saw on an open party recently. Good grief.
That information would prove quite helpful if Phil wants to make this happen...:smoking33:
Nice day of fishing! Thanks for the report.
When was this Cory? Beautiful fall day is what it looks like.
Nice butt, Cody!
Nice report, Erik. Way to keep those surfers on their toes! LOL
Shady people suck
It's time to put this unfortunate lesson behind us. We can all hash out what might have happened and create unnecessary arguments between good...
Ain't that the truth? He said this, she said that, nanny nanny poo poo. Good grief.
:cheers: Remorse shows maturity. All good Mark.
Nice report and glad you and your buddies got your share! Classic buddy move pinning your number on his skippies!
Thanks for serving our country!
Condolences to the family of the passenger who was killed, and to all affected.
Great stuff Dan! Fall fishing at it finest! Why didn’t someone call me?:boobies:
Great report, Mike! Glad you got some ahi before the tide changes to winter. Love the "butter ball tuna" description.
Sweet day close to home! Hope my overnighter on Sunday pays dividends close to that!
post your report in this forum when you get back, greenhorn. thanks. :smoking33:
That's not fishing, that's catching.Thanks for the vid.
Nice report as always, Erik. Thanks for the details.
I’m as jovial as they come, until people descriminate against any other ethnic group.
Black eyes would suit you better, sir.
Joe that's yucky!!!barf
Swells don't stop fish from eating, but maybe wind. 6-8 feet is albacore weather.
Great report! Perfect grade in my book.
Kids. You always got to keep an eye on them.
My dad was a civil engineer, my brother is, my nephew is structural. Your post was a dead giveaway! I’m the opposite, just winging it through life...
Perfect view from the bridge!
Good grief. Are you a structural engineer, Danny? :eyepoppin Related to Ross Perot?
55 people with the wind in your face protocol sounds a bit catastrophic and claustrophobic. How about 40 max at $170, and sell more burgers.
Worthy of a Guinness-style celebration!
BD isn't as bad as Titter.
M, just remember, if you are going to post a report with any kind of negative connotation included, it will...

Scientists need to develop a way to get those dogs to hibernate during the summer months, somewhere close to where adult GWS feed.
Awesome Cory! I almost was on that boat. Shame on me for not being number 17 on 95 ft of platform.
Redemption trip for sure! :appl:
That's a good day of fishing despite the inevitable. Congrats!
Over and under mayhem with the boys!
Classic day on the water, Todd! Thanks for sharing!
PS- Can't you fit the yak in the galley? :D
I agree with you, Brandon. Not to mention they are capable of wiping out the school in one clean sweep.
My wife and I fished Eagles Nook this...
Nothing like instant bendo to wrap up the day! Nice vid
Nice report and congrats on 160 lbs of tuna! The poke looks tasty!
That’s a great day Cody!
And that’s that! Nice result
Lal, riding the gravy train! Nice!
Wow! I’m not sure what got me pumped more, seeing those massive tuna come over the rail or Jeff Loerber blowing the sax!
Where was that? :D
Nice work Stefan!
Dues suck, but rewards are not far off. Good effort!
Nice! Chum is our friend.
Real nice mossies!
Pack a dozen mackerel with 3-4 habanero chili’s and feed the cute dogs. They will reconsider quickly.
I guess I’m not the only one who had a quiet boat ride last time out. Next time, Mike!
Want a few laughs? If you have 15 minutes to burn, here's a video my buddy Alex put together after we found a single nugget outside Oceanside a...
Hmmm....I was always an Aqua Velva kinda guy!
Jason, it is time to shut this post down?
Great looking fish boys!
Yes, yes and yes.
I don’t have the actual numbers, but this one is about 16 miles south west of Dana Point.
We’ve set up a voucher distribution...
Fishing quality dodos with quality people! That’s what it’s all about.
Everyone is going to want to get their hands on Jacks bowls!
I'm in, skipper!
Brilliant! Classic to see a floating life preserver with a flag on it printed "Paddy taken - move on"
Couple grand? I’m in! Just don’t come near my paddy. :smoking33:
You tell’m Deb!!!
50 yards works just fine:smoking33:
Sweet boat, Jonathan! Congrats! Wasn't your last a boat a Tiara?
Glad you found some nice Dodo's to break her in. I'm heading out of SD tomorrow...
Awesome write-up, Mike! Great day, even with the Zach attack!
Too much weight discussion. It's just frigging BIG, and more tuna than one family can eat in a year.
Good stuff Ron!
Terribly sorry you ended up with just a 90# blue fin tuna, Matt. Better luck next time.
Nice day, nice bull!
We’re they boiling?
Not a bad day considering the bait tank issue.
Will be targeting fish from San Diego on Wednesday and definitely need to keep La Jolla as a...
Great day of fishing! I would suggest cutting the gills to keep the blood out of all that beautiful meat.
Thanks for the report Dan! That’s a good day of fishing!
LaJolla is a nice option!
Great trip, great crew, great to see our first responders get a wide-open day off!!! Thanks for the report!
:appl:That’s the way to celebrate a bachelor party!!! :cheers:
With all those yellows I might have forgotten about the BFT also! Nice day at the nados!
I’ll be darned. The controversial video vanished just like that. Go figure.
With disrespectful comments like that, you are quickly becoming the most popular, dumbass on this board, and well deserved. Tuck your tail where...

No shit. He's a wanna-be Youtube sensation, but is more like a senseless moron. He actually want's people to subscribe, so they too, can learn to...
Took the words right out of my mouth, Mike.
Congrats on the nice tails!
The best kind of day!!!
Great report and sorry about your buddy getting the green bug. Never any fun for the green horns, but good experience nevertheless.
There are bait balls of micros all around that island. The predators should be getting plump for the fall season!
The agony of knot defeat! This is how we all learn, or at least try to.
Hopefully that was bilge water...:D
I swear I've seen this fellar somewhere before...
That's a nice half day!
That's what we're talking about! :appl:
I'm not sure where or how they get them, but I remember being anchored for the night at SCI tied to a buddy-boater, and while we were taking in...
Solo? A heck of a day!
I love hamachi.
What’s a newspaper?
What memories are made of!
Nice day! I would prefer to fish the macs over dines as Dodos will inhale them.
That would be lucky! To tell the towboat to take the long way there, or stop and have lunch while you pull in limits.
Nice work, Erik! You and Decker were definitely in the funzone! Priceless.
I had to laugh a little, Chris. A beautifully descriptive report regardless of no fishing activity! Just try and not think about that loaded paddy...
Family fish'n right there!
Those seas look like butter, Chris! Congrats on the sweet hamachi. Looks tasty!
That young man looks like a natural! :appl:
Picked this up off a different site. Must be the best trip ever, especially for the DFG. El Niño?

over night 26...
Great photo Corey! What boat was that? OP shorts and everything.
Great report! Congrats on the Bigeye Albijack.
That’s the stuff dreams are made of!
FYI - I think we fished that same paddy about 13 years ago for similar results. :D
Nice! How far offshore and key bait other than troll?
It’s football season!
There’s some rude focks on this public, open conversation, number-sharing, courteous, friendly website. Good grief.
And the negativity seems to...
This report is worthy of posting the same photos twice.
Chum line. Dodos will sometimes bite anything.
It’s time to chunk when those dodos are timid. When I had my boat, I would leave the chum bucket in the water for a while to get the dinner bell...
Ssshhhhhhhhhhh! Let’s try and keep this a secret on a fishing discussion board, with the website to boot.
I need them to move northwest...
Nice report, Mike! Congrats on the homeguard!
While I was there a couple weeks ago it was pretty quiet. I did manage to chum up some venison a...
Yeah just ignore it and it will go away like a bee.
Are you willing to test your theory?
I would be sad, too. Good luck Stevo.
Dang, I though you were in your late 30's. You're a salty old fart.
LOL I was just offered a senior citizen discount for the first time on my Cat Express ticket (55 in June). :eek: Let those rewards come!!!
Thanks CD! My wife actually thinks I need an adjustment.
DL? Hope everything is okay. By the looks of your fish, you seem to be just fine!
Those kelps look awfully familiar...:smoking33:
Maybe we didn't bring enough?
Thanks, Cory! I'll be a Joe's rent-a-boat in Avalon in about 48 hours. Stay tuned! LOL
You should have called me, I would have come!:cussing:
Good news about good people. :appl:
A day can make a difference, Tom. Be a news-maker! It was just an off day. I'd be out there again today if I had the time and $ !!!
Fished with friends Jeff and Oly on Oly's 21' Seaswirl. Left Dana Pt at 6am with a scoop of horse dines. Plan was to search for paddies from the...
Congrats on getting those hall passes!
Sounds like a great day!
Nice trip! Chartered Ricks boat a few times and never disappointed!
Here's our trip from 5 years ago for your viewing pleasure.
Nice forkie Nick! I'll be out there for a few days next week and hoping for similar success - without the anchor line obstacle! LOL
Like a squid bed or bait ball, I would guess the predators would be lurking not too far behind. Maybe some halibut along that shoreline.
Nice report, Randy!
80 is definitely a few friends, with a few thieves mixed in I guess. Tricky watching your stuff around 80 people throughout...
Watch your foot, those sharp things are capable of inflicting some pain.
We're going to need a bigger boat...
I want some of that....:smoking33:
Hmmmm....I'd have to see that for myself! :D
Wait a second, you grabbed that troll fish first in the last video! Couldn't help yourself, and I...
Ha ha! You're brother is spoiled rotten!
That must be your brothers boat since he is getting all the wake-up strikes! Great vid - makes me want to be there. Nothing better than fishing...
Bring the kitchen sink, just in case.
Keep your eyes peeled, bring the binoculars and look for the golden nuggets!
If anyone is interested in having a couple new friends on deck, I will be staying at Hamilton Cove from 8/14 to 8/18. Best potential fishing days...
Jimmeny jahoozafat! Those are really big fish.
BD Guinness World record for incredible extended version report! :urno1:
Nice fish too!
Love those types of paddies! No need to push on, just stay put and fish!
Congrats on the first dodo! Always entertaining to see them jumping in all their lime green glory!
Nice fish despite the typo controversy!
Nice way to start every weekend, Erik! Thanks for another detailed post.
Hardly ever a bad day at Catalina, even with slow fishing. Dues paid.
Better to be rocked than not rocked at all. :smoking33:
Great seeing a fresh report from you Ronald!!! Ice that shoulder and get ready for round 2!
20” center console? Must be super fuel efficient!
You won’t know if you don’t go!
I hate catching 20-30 # yellowtail. Absolutely no fun, and much more risky than landing those 100+ pound bluefin with 30 other unprepared people....
Nice little perk after your offshore effort!
Nice work, Willy!
That's what good Samaritans do, help those in need, despite who they are. People need to help people.
I did notice the...
Nice report and congrats on getting a couple fish to go!
A - But I don't think it's unusual to stop from a good distance if a boat looks like it...
Good fishing right there! Thanks for the intel.
Tips. So many times on so many levels, they can be over-rated, and unfortunately expected.
How about we start a tip campaign for the first...
More trippy stuff in the water...:smoking33:
I used to run across those things every now and then. It sort of makes you think it’s actually watching, intelligence. Creepy
Paddies are our friends.
I'm attracted to those bait tanks on the bow. I hate running 60+ feet for a fresh bait.
Nice report Erik. Perfect size tuna, that I guess would be referred to as small with all the giants being caught.
Way to go, Larry. Great report!
Great fishing right there!
$250 “billion” cable? Maybe time to call Cox for an estimate. That seems really expensive.
Happy wife, happy life!
That’s a good day of fishing’
Fantastic day, Cody! Love seeing the YFT in close.
Is this a report, or a theory?
It's a shark with very sharp teeth. That's all that really matters. Mako fastest, White biggest. Who cares - they both scare the living wijeebies...
That shark is exactly why I choose to stay on the dry side of the paddies. They are there for one reason - a meal.
Sorry to hear about the boat...
That's a good day, Shawn. Thanks
Thank you so much for the details. Did you happen to see what kind of fish were biting?
This post is full of life. Carry on.
Frigging hilarious, Mark. You need your own reality tv show.
At least you've had a keeper in your lifetime! I'm still working on it. LOL
I see WSB stone earrings in your future my friend! :D
A good summer, SoCal kind of day! :cheers:
Yes Mike, you should have known that. It's a good way to claim your fish. Plus you can make earrings, key chains, bottle-openers, maybe even a...
Great report! Congrats on a couple levels!
Dude that is awesome with pops and kids helping out!
I will go out on a limb and estimate a 30# + mossy.
Nice way to break in the new boat!
And more swell on the way! Thanks for the report.
Prepare yourself for the dodo invasion coming soon to a paddy near you.
You won’t know if you don’t go. Next time!
If snot logs are good fried, anything is good fried.
Okay I guess that was an honest reply, Erik.
I concur. In the event of a party boat, charter or private boat, I'd rather play with the 25-30 lb...
Old Danish proverb: "Never bring a knife to a gun fight"
Good call on staying local!
Now that's what I wanted to hear!
God's speed to this persons family and friends. Hat's off to the responders as in any traumatic situation. Human loss is most difficult....
Frigging awesome! White tuna.
Listened to a video where the guy said if you eat too much, it will cause one to use the restroom facilities in...
Wow! Better get eating!
This post is 100% odd. :smoking33:
Very nice yellowtail, indeed!
Awesome report! The best kind as a matter of fact! 3 generations working together for memories to last a lifetime.
Great write-up Mike, despite the unfortunate no-hook ups. Dues paid big time but the bright side is you could have been stuck behind a computer...
Great write up, Brian! :appl:And that is one huge frickn fish! :cheers:
There are some real unfriendly, pathetic assholes on this board, Mike. They continue to prove it to us.
Hint: Raider Nation dude! :devil:
Sweet! That's close enough to MV for me. Thanks Phil.
I saw the Ranger 85 had a couple on 2.5, was there closer news?
I’d like them here in Mission Viejo if that were possible :D
Most people are going to think this is a trick question, as there haven't been any albacore remotely close to SD in over 15 years. If...
Very nice tail indeed!
Nice Cody! I’m excited to hear about all this yellowfin news!
Wholy crap, is that right?
Seems I paid about $35.00 for a 1/2 scoop in Dana Pt not long ago, which equated to about 3 good passes. Just enough...
The best of times!
I hate crappy mono
Wow that fish in the foreground stack is a hog! Bass are definitely on the chew.
In SoCal you can keep 5 yellowtail under 24", and 5 over, 10 total. Personally, I would be happy with 3 under, 3 over. We're talking...
I prefer 2-3 football size YFT for each angler, rather than 1 - 150 lb BFT for 25 people to fight over. Just say'n.
The Dodos are coming, the Dodo's are coming!
Congrats! Things are looking like SoCal summer fishing!
Lou making it happen on the popper! Sweet paddy fishing!
Looks more like the gravy train, with an extra side of biscuits! You guys had a stellar day.
Awesome king, Frank! :urno1:
I love fish reports with “bam”!!!
Nice grade YT!
Nothing wrong with a wide open, local bass bite with a short ride home!
Thanks Mr Visser!
Outstanding report and news!
Is that a mummy? Yikes
So true! No receipt, no income accountability, the hard-working bait boats get robbed and soon are out of business for hiring a thief.
This is what an actual fishing report in the fishing report forum can look like these days.
Ralph’s has a $1.99 per pound on pork short...
Yeah don’t question this salty dawg. Or Ronald will start posting photos from each of his 830 Condor trips - yikes!
It’s too late as those clowns are unemployed as of my last post.
It’s all good. The owner is a high school buddy and I can guarantee you that...
This is completely uncalled for! I’m calling Scott right now to inquire about the foul language and have these culprits fired immediately. No excuses!
I guess you guys sort of did okay, sort of....:eek:
And we didn’t have to pay for a subscription either! Nothing like good neighbors who aren’t concerned about cloning the background in Photoshop....
Should change his avatar name to paddy-wacker instead.
Nice post and great trip Alan!
I’m leaving for Eagle Nook resort in BC in 5 days, and this report has my pretty excited!
Well done (Mary)!!!
I like that kind of chaos!
Great write up, and beautiful fish!
I'll take an ass-pounding ride home for a day like that. Congrats on 16 lbs of ceviche! :appl:
I'm sure the wife won't mind that sheepshead...
I guess I should start lowering my expectations. Slam dunk!
I recently bought a 300 HG, and was equally disappointed to find no clicker. Definitely for the ability to soak, and something I...
Another great photo of the island! Makes you want to be there.
7 years of sleeping in. Dreamy.
Hope you catch some fish!!! :beerbang:
Let the poor guy get some sleep!
Nice seas to go sniffing around on! Love the finicky sonar mark. Next time!
I’m bringing my blue-light special rod & reel combo on my next trip!
Congrats on the nice Opah!
Not asking for much, are you Gerry!
Those are some very large fish...:appl:
Fishing. The elements will come together eventually.
Always showing off, Cody. And I'm damn envious. :cussing:
He must be friends with my stepdaughter and her friends. Once they're plugged in, there's no stopping them.
It’s almost July...:smoking33:
Yellowtail are cool. :smoking33:
My pop always told me to plan ahead. :smoking33:
The backdrop in your photo says it all about Catalina. Where the same chaparral in SoCal is a teardrop 25 miles offshore. Sharing it with pops is...
Good grief, is that your permanent screen-saver now, Corey? Some scary :shithappens:
Epic enough for me! :appl:
The first Calico is FAT! Wide open on that grade would be a very good day!
Let's be a little more creative on the ID protection, though. :D
Nice report, Dan! Nothing like fishing with pop, or being a pop!
Paul is the Man running the galley!
That grade is definitely there, Cory. We had some mid 30 fish a couple weeks ago.
Need to get back out there soon as I was playing the role of...
Great looking lings!
Awesome report! Surf and turf at it's best with the whole family joining in on the mayhem, even the dog! That is some priceless stuff! Kind...
Nothing like fishing with pops!
I’m still trying to break the keeper mark. Seriously.o_O
The bluefin are nibbling
You're right, Paul. Lot's of nerves (and nerds) on this board, no doubt.
Another page turned, on to the next one!
Nice report. I'll never forget my first trigger fish in Baja, when those teeth were chewing on the pliers while I tried getting the hook off it's...
I concur. :smoking33:
20 people getting limits of 3 each. Hmmmmm....I remember reading an article about that once in a real news"paper" back in the late 70's (about 40...
This may be a bit premature as I have not been there yet, but I am taking my wife to this place for our anniversary in 4 weeks. Did enough...
You're too kind. Don't apologize.
Remember the old Danish proverb, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me!" :gay:
Explains the elusiveness.
Wholy Mola! Looks like Patrick Swayze has been reincarnated!
Couldn't agree more. Plain spoiled.
Cute little butts!
Wham, bam, thank you (...) !
I'll be in the neighborhood in 4 weeks. Frothing :drool:
Let those 1 lbers alone Mike!!! LOL
Good times with your son!
Out of site, out of mind. Same thing I tell my wife with her purse!
Close proximity to the landing with lots of activity around, so I would have to say it looks pretty good. Didn’t notice surveillance cameras, not...
It's worth getting there an hour ahead of schedule.
Good luck on your trip, Choe! Two toad photos posted.
It's right next to the free parking for the landing across the street. I posted photos of the two toads over 30#. Good luck! I'm back on 6/28 for...
Nice work, Ron! I want a photo like that!
We saw that breakwater with loads of kelp on our way in this morning. All I could think was BASS!
We were on the Fortune, Ray. What a day of fishing! You guys did really well on the tails as well as the T-Bird.
Booked another fun trip with Bruce Smith and company to spend my double-nickel birthday where I love to be. As most people know, the islands are...
Sprung is springing no doubt! That’s a nice day.
Great write-up! Congrats on the YT
That's good stuff!
Fish the bow and tell everyone to stay the fock away.
68 good folks for 2 days? Let’s do this!
A lot of good folks have different interpretations of a limited load. What is the load max?
Ah yes, chumps messing up the chum.
Nice work Russ
That's a pig: Ron! What line test were you using and bait?
Great report, Matt. Spring has sprung, and I am seriously chomping at the bit for my 1.5 birthday trip on the Fortune next week. No more people,...
Nice post Harbison! Florida fishing is definitely unique to SoCal fishing, I guess like anywhere else. I like the fact you have a canopy nearly...
Fish/alligator - crazy!
We'll be suspicious if you stop posting reports. No hamachi or ceviche for a while...
What's that blue stuff? Is that from the Avalon sewage spill?
Short and sweet. Nice little mix of fish.
That was funny! And probably true. Island carp.
Maybe try calling Catalina chamber of commerce. The only thing I heard was water being restored on Friday. Not sure how long it will...
You and I both!!!
I guess you’re taking that as an accusation, my apology. But no need to suggest how I spend my day. I have better things to do than trying to hook...
They were born yesterday. 10 lbs or larger can reproduce.
Maybe a good thing that those 3# yellowtail had lockjaw.
Nice looking day, Henry!
Good move on assisting the stranded boater. Sweet Karma's going to give you a big hug!
After reading the other post about island bluefin, I was already convinced. This year is beginning to look interesting already.
That's a sweet boat trifecta with the butt, yellows and bluefin. Wowza!
Decent grade YT! Thanks for the report.
Hey, at least you got broken off by something.
That's good stuff, Ron!
:lux:Oh Happy Days! :lux:
Bluefin tuna food
Nice looking seas and a decent day not working - right?
I'd rather see your photo-worthy fish versus a deflated Dodgers balloon...thanks for...
Nice little halibut, Ronson! Sounds like a decent day of fishing.
Those mantis are beautifully evil.
Sweet little halibut, Ronson!
Dang those mantis shrimp are beautifully evil.
Nice report, Lal! Just a matter of time til those boils unleash some major dividends!
Nice going Doug!
Damn this was a funny read!
I was about to call BS without pics - your good now. :D
Nothing wrong with a warm-up session, Jose!
Yellow-bellied opah larvae
Like the previous post, keep it simple. Bring lot's of chum (I also suggest a few cans of cat food to chum up the bait fish). We were there last...
Nothing illegal about feeding the cute sea lions (with some added spice)
The reason I keep a slingshot and bag of rocks on my kayak.
Not fare keeping us on the edge of our seat like this...perhaps it wasn't working too well.
Is this the same as the dog show?
A friend of mine and I are considering stuffing mackerel with habaneros on our next trip for some dog treats while we fish. Might send a strong...
I want one of those...
Mike, the photo does Devan's butt plenty of justice, trust me. Out-fricking-standing!
[ATTACH] Spent the morning at the Riverside National Veterans Cemetery thanking my pop and saluting the endless number of service men and women of...
Oh - and Happy Birthday!
Good stuff Corey! I grew up surfing Saispuedes as a teen. Love that area. “Baja Big Sur”
Nice checker board!
Fish are getting frisky out there!
Turquoise fish in turquoise seas, awesome! Trip of a lifetime right there! What time of year is this?
Good luck Tony!
Doug, is the there any way we can get a more timely report? That fish is already on the deck.
Best read in a while! I claim a Victory for you and your son!
I feel the nephews pain. I've been shaking shorts for years and still looking for a keeper.
Good looking eats and sonar marks.
That's a big fish. Congrats!
That’s a decent day of fishing!
Great report, Erik. Thanks!
Right now, US law is bringing a serial killer who stabbed my friends sister 32 years ago to justice, after killing 8 additional women and raping...
Great looking YT!
I’ll fish with my rod & reel from a deck, thanks.
The OP never mentioned calling ICE regarding these two Norwegian, German, Cambodian, Italian, Polynesian scum-bags. You actually...
I like your point and glad to hear the crew was advising to keep what you eat.
Yellowtail are not mature enough to produce until 10 lbs or over....
Nice day taking care of pops, Nick!
Cory and Lal, flipping the switch to “on”! Great news guys!
There was a reply from a gentleman named Jaime that said this was a suggested racist or bigot remark (since then removed unless I’m...
Always nice getting a few hours on the water with a few fish to boot. Thanks for the report.
Well I guess that won't last long! :boobies::drunk:imdumb:
Good grief, did they finally reinstate your BD membership, Jeff? LOL
No holding back, Larry. Show them what law is all about. Glad to hear you got some of your prized possessions back. Kudos to boys at SDTT.
No shit. Kind of like the banger who has the Mother Mary attached to his dashboard. Love the "deer in the headlights" look.
Time to invest in a rod belt. :smoking33:
It's going to be a red crab type of year I would suspect.
That sounds like a very nice day! :appl:
Beautiful dodo right there!
That's a nice way to wrap up the day gents!
Wow that is a happy birthday! Congrats!
For someone who loves catching and eating yellowtail, I am absolutely speechless. And I will bet the Japanese can prepare it a heck of a lot...
Very cool! I love the ocean.
$30 bills is $30 bills. Sweet Karma's going to give you a big hug some day!
Still a decent day. Good call on the boat! 29 less people is a good thing when fishing.
Oh yeah! Nice looking models right there!
Uh oh, my bad! I was paying attention to the bucket and didn't see the kill bag off the back. Distracted by all the purty yellowtail. I stand...
That’s a nice day. Time for a kill bag with ice.
How did you do? West end has all the current from Pt Conception, but fish could be anywhere around the island.
Mission Bay/Dana Landing will be absolutely swamped, especially when/if a bite blows up close to SD.
Nice report and decent grade YT.
Look at the bright side, the max load is 75. You were only 2/3 capacity...:eyepoppin
One is better than none. Congrats!
Nice report. I always try planning trips with the tide on the upswing from day break to mid-day. Saturday the tide was slacking to 0.6 low...
I think Dana Pt is $10. Not bad for as much launch area compared to the SI ramp, although trailer parking seems more spacious at SI. Seriously bad...
Sounds plunker enough for a good time. Thanks for the report
The fact that you and Roger/The Tunaman came up with the same exact statement is amazing in itself! :eyepoppin
It carries more substance than a “fishing report” post talking about suggested reels, suggested boats, or favorite breakfast burritos. That’s for...
We need a "month late report" forum. :D Okay, not quite a month.
Good stuff, looked and sounded cold.
Nice little trophy there, Russ!
My TLD 25 takes a lickn and keeps on tickn.
Nice edit. Is that Panama?
I say try them both as their schedules will allow you to walk from one boat to the next. Let us know how you do.
Thanks for the report. Hoping to hear some WSB/YT news at the Box canyon area. Wishful thinking perhaps.
Nice going, Doug!
Nice gesture, Bill!
If I still had my 24' Striper, you'd be invited! Unfortunately not much room on my 12' ProAngler. LOL
Taking my wife to...
Joe, I don't think Jim (plj46) was trying to be an asshole by guessing what Joel might be up to. Agreed there are some knucklehead replies on...
Monster yelloweye, Jason.
Honest question, Burke. But it may have been a shot in the dark asking for specific locations. It's like asking for someone's moms secret recipe....
Nice grade fish all around! Andy Cates from the RRIII?
Congrats on the new boat! That's some seriously good mpg.
If 10 lb YT are small, which they sort of are, I'd love to play with those things for a...
Thanks for the detail, Erik. Decker has not himself a nice size grumpy, there!
Another great standard to follow, Bill!
Follow the skippers advice, follow your line, and have fun!
Let’s go fish a full day, open party to Catalina, Mike! I think the max load is 75. Come on, I dare you!
Nothing like running into one of your distant relatives around the bait tank. LOL
Wide open bites really depend on who you are fishing with. If...
I heard someone say “I’ll see you in the parking lot”. Sounds like a damn Dodgers/Giants game.
Nice report, Willy! Your friend is obviously stoked.
Thanks for being a steward for the sea.
Way to get out there, Bryan. Dividends are right around the corner!
Nice report, Mike! That young man looks like he needs a ginger ale.
Have you been following me Ron? :eek:
Nice tail for your pop!
I’m a credit union type of guy.
You will find structure near the lobster traps. Don’t tell anyone.
Great report. Thanks!
This is complicated. Next question, please :smoking33:
Despite being a third-hand report, I am very happy about the local mossies, even if they do have zip-ties on their tails.
Great report, David! Way to hang in there!
Despite the light load of 47, you managed to get a nice fish. Congrats!
Yup. Exactly what I was thinking. I'll stick with 25#.
3/4 dreaming....this season is about to explode. Congrats!
Ewe, that’s yucky
Corn is starting to pop!
Good grief, what is all this scribbly stuff posted by all these universities this morning? Yikes!
Beautiful fish, Jeff! Congrats on the PB. Looks like some decent seas to work on, too.
Don't let the record keep you up at night. You won.
Spanish mac. Makes great sashimi, too. Makes the Pacific mac taste like :shithappens:, IMO.
Thanks. Always liked party boats with bait tanks at the bow. Keeps the crowd spread out.
I just purchased a 12' Pro Angler from Tim about 2 months ago, and am currently keeping it at his storage lot. Every time I've been down there you...
Flat fall, glow-in-dark something-or-another. As long as it has some quick-dropping weight to it.
For your own good and ours, start a taco stand. Absolute pigs!
Nice fishing, Dan! Thanks for the promising report!
Flat fall tipped with a sardine? Probably wasn’t falling very flat but who cares!!! Whatever works!
That’s a good day of fishing.
Good effort. Thanks for the report
Herding sheep for 4 hours would be a good time! If you’re into ceviche, save one next time.
I am seriously chomping at the bit! :cow:Probably like a lot of other people here. Hoping for news of squid beds off Pendleton soon so we can look...
Separate names with a comma.
