Saw you out there last friday, Calicos were fun but we were looking for Yellows also
Keeping the fish counts up?
Gotta love SW's fish cleaning station!
There would have been....a whole lotta shaken going on..
I shot a Yellowtail and handed the fish to my friend on the boat, the fish slid down the spear and caused the guy to drop the spear,...
I was thinking that the whole time!
Went out on my friends 26' Grady CC early Friday morning, picked up a scoop of deans and made some macs at the receiver in San Diego bay. Plan was...
Glad they made it back ok, I count on my fellow fishermen to have our backs so I'm always willing to help those in need from bait, a cold drink to...
I see those rods rigged for bluefin in the back ground just in case!

We were there, cool to see the fish boiling after the San Diego dumped their bait. Where you the one with the jig/bait stick that was always...
We did the same last week, saved the day! what were you draggin? we got ours on a black and purple feather and a black and purple cedar plug
I heard you on the radio, we found a kelp north of the 371 and had 20 minutes of YFT, got 8 before they sunk out
Beach launches are the best!
I was cracking up as the food kept getting better and more complex!
Great entertaining report, thanks!
That picture is epic in so many ways!
One of the original fiberglass/ wood 18' x 8' 2" skiffs built by Blackman/ Stringari in the early days of San Diego boat building. Hull and...
Limits of PFDs!
Those bugs never had a chance!
I was looking at that spot on the chart if could go! thanks for the report, very encouraging
This is one of the early hulls wood and fiberglass
We had the same thing happen to us last year! great memories
Stringari Hull with West Coast trailer $2000.
$2000. for the Stringari hull and a West Coast trailer
Everything... It's the hull and trailer. I've got a line on the 4stoke Yamaha 150 and engine bracket that was on it.
Thinking about selling my 18' skiff project boat. [ATTACH]
That's a good day
Epic battle, In the end that fish was a gift!
thanks for the report, Purple/ silver one of my favorite "go to's"
What a season its becoming when your kids have a chance to get a big Bluefin just off the beach!
Sounds like a great plan, the weather looks good. One day last year the only thing that saved us was the frozen squid.
I'm sure the fish is some sharks lunch by now but the float, line and spear are still out there!
My friend took two of his dive buddies out to the 43 area on Sunday and got into the BFT. They were able to get a couple ranging from 40 to 70lbs...

Classic baby shot with the sashimi, It's all about family and friends, good on ya
I remember your posts, you always had some great tips and tried different techniques. Looking forward to reading more posts this season.
Nice boat, fish and story! Great memory on the new boat
There's a lot of fun packed in the Slider
So stinking AWESOME! Love it....
perfect size comparisons!
I read the whole thing....very funny but I think we've all been in similar situations. I remember on the backside of Catalina on my 16.5...
Glad you got one, we hooked few outside, went 14 miles out to the mex line.
3/o circle, through the meat up, hook sticking out of the skin also try strips, as you throw lots of chunk in.
If on a kelp, circle around and repeat
Almost spooled me, hooked it on my 40lb bait stick with an Avet JX4, had to pin the drag
Used two gaffs! one to the head
Left early out of MB straight west for 20miles then North just above the 33 line looking for kelp, crashing birds, mammals, jumping fish and meter...
Haters wanna hate, lovers wanna love. I know all I want, is more of the above.
Nice job on the video! From the sea to the plate....Fresh!
Super cool you didn't jump in so the other boat could fish. Keep making those memories.
A couple years ago my buddy and I got called in to a kelp...
Nice fish and fishing platform!
Great job by the way, WSB best white fish, go get one of those!
[ATTACH]Back to the future
Hilarious, I could feel the stoke!
Good friends to help like that, super cool story. I've seen a lot of whales and pictures (lived in Maui for 8 years) but never at that angle...
Huge yellow! nice
use the kite
I like this "We fished the tuna grounds at the 9 mile bank "
Great pictures, Those little rats from last year are all grown up!
Saw them like that a few years back at La Jolla, I thought it was porpoise from a distance. hundreds crashing on schools of those small lizard fish
very cool! nothing like getting your son on the fish
Nice fish and Squidco hat!
Take off every other hook on the sabiki, nothing worse for a kid than six macs fighting each other with hooks flying
Thank you sir
trolling x-raps or jointed rapala type lures
Very cool report, where do you get those rope handle buckets?
Way to go! You usually hear " hooked a nice one but it got wrapped in the anchor line"
Old Frank Zappa quote
Is that a real poncho or a Sears poncho.
I like the hat, It's seen some time on the water
getting fired up!
We had one that the gauge fit perfectly over the carapace, When I turned it upside down the gauge stayed on the bug. We kept it and we're checked...
nice to see their close again

looks like the 4 kelps we fished on the 425... just a couple dodos on them yesterday
Rodeo style! well done, SoCal trifecta in two casts.
We had a dine wrap around a dodos gills come around and loop the line then jump off as we...
Ha, yeah my wife would agree on the shitty attire. Next time I'll make sure to wear something way hipper.
Great post, so funny
It's because you hardly ever see one, kind of like "I saw Elvis in Walmart"
great ideas for the poopoo plater
great pics, love the custom mount shots. GoPro picture of the week
Mako with half of a fish and tuna coming out of the water at water level. Awesome!
Heard about a wahoo on the radio on thursday. 302 I think, we were little busy though, pulling in 13 YFT and 3 YT
Always enjoy watching my kids catch fish.
great picture, if your little guy was a full grown man that fish would be fifty pounds! trophy for sure
ok another hour watching you catch dodos.....
wasted... cool videos, I especially like the one with the wide open YFT with the BFT mixed in
I just waisted 2 hours watching your videos!
great fathers day picture, blessed for sure!
sounds like fun,
with board shorts to match, great catch!
I'd buy that book...
Friday weather looks better, looking forward to your post

Why were you worried about the spearguns? Shouldn't be a problem if boarded.
Thanks for the report
Reminds me when the albacore were close, trapped between two warm water breaks, SSTs reading 70+. 2007 I think
Truly a blessing, curious to see the history Hubbs discovers.
Thanks Randall, looking forward to a good summer.
I saw a Seven gill on a night dive for lobsters, the bugs were going crazy in the game bag
I really enjoyed his posts, he truly loved to fish. sad news. God bless you Rock

Barry put me on my fish, I'll never forget that day
Nice... fresh Albacore heart stuck in the braces
Congratulations Mark! New boat , new stories...
Awesome! that smile says it all.
I sent a similar post a couple years ago; I received a response back that said the squid will eat the lobster so the lobsters stay away from them.
best value for the money is Parker
How were the conditions down at the 390? I was thinking of going down tomorrow but with the wind blowing all day...

We always get fish on the Endeavor, great boat.
Thats great! I want to go next time...
Great pictures, Classic three fish shot!
Putting some hours on that Parker!
Hope you fill the boat.
Well said, I'm proud of you. It's good to know we have Captians like you coming up in the industry.
371 in an 18' Parker, nice score
I really like Little Harbor. Cool spot for boating in.
Good thing it was a Parker.
I like the Endevor, always gets us on fish in Sept.

Catalina, same day
We got into a lot of just... short bugs (30-40) and this, we thought we had a couple jumbo lobies,
It's cool that they can go out even in that and attempt a rescue.
God bless them
I want to make that trip also, Post when you get back, I hope you score! Take a some hoopnets
Nice catch, Harold Davis does make a great boat.

Awesome story, great fish.
Congratulations, enjoy your married life.
What kind of set up do you have for diving?
Hoochies are killing them, I'm going to make some up.
Thanks for the report.
Tim, way to go on the yellowfin, what did they bite? we were looking for the stuffed paddy like we found last week but only found one good one...
I was out at the 182 and heard Queenfish talking to the skipper on the Yellowfin, 37/40 if I recall.
Thanks for the call Mark, We were the ones that showed up late (found a paddy of our own) friends of Judds and Matt, that was classic when you...
You’re right on regarding the paddies; my buddy and I jumped in and saw 20-30 Dodos and Yellow fin circling down deep.
Check the Terrifin, looks like there's a break, and I hear fish just south of Clemente
That's cool to get a gift that’s all set up and ready to fish, I’ll bet he was super stoked when he first saw it. Great gift Grandpa!
THE COLD AIR ALOFT WILL CAUSE ENOUGH INSTABILITY FOR A CHANCE OF

We saw that paddy on Tuesday but there was a big fat seal on it. Good job pulling one out.
It looks like the cool water is 40 miles southwest, the Albies were trapped inside, between two warm currents that extended up to the 43 last week
It looks like the trough of cool water is farther west check tempbreak.com
That's a cool idea, how fast can you troll that purple marauder?
Go out to 31/30 then head towards the 182 if the wind picks up you'll be close and can run down hill all the way home, sounds like the fish are...

very cool report, I liked the way you McGuiver'ed the bait, you guys really got into it given the tough conditions.
Awsome fish Cory, Looks like you've got a new avatar picture!
what size line were you fishing? the reason I ask, they were a little line shy at the Rock Pile. 20-25lb. seemed to work the best
Nice grade of fish, We got a few at the Rock Pile
WOW! Looked like a great day, We’re heading out tomorrow
I saw everybody going out this morning from Mission Bay channel, most were heading straight out instead of the usual right turn towards La Jolla.
Little Harbor, I love that spot, Incredible story sounds like you had a great time all that planning and prep paid off

nice fish... I should have stayed local, I went to the 182.That's a cool chart, what's it from?
Try throwing an iron or add some weight to your bait.
Sounds like you had a blast.
saw dodos jumping all around. No go on the dodos until "Reely Fun" came in and offered some mini macs for some time on the paddy
Now thats cool.
Nice pics.. did you spear any?
