Love the days when you can do no wrong.
He that fishes and runs away will live to fish another day
For sure? Light drag wtf?
Good on you for doing the right thing
You did good. Water dropped a few?
The smiles say it all!
Great job dad!
Detailed report. Sounds like fun
Good intel thanks
You did good!. Sounds like you ate good too!
Never fails . I have caught more fish eithier eating or pissing .
Current is everybody's fishing friend
Thanks for giving up the goods
Troll speed sounds good to me and the longfins.
Maybe exxon not so much.
Long run for one.....
Way...... better than none
Could have been cleaning the shed instead!
I wish i had your day. ...
Thanks for your report
Ken with Kens custom reels says Daiwa Sealine makes excellent casting reels straight out of the box.
That was a few years back now.
I like my...
Great attitude. Glad your boat will be ready when the fish are ready to die.
Did a similar trip a few weeks back. For us.. nothing. Few days later bam!. Its fishing. Glad it was flat for you. Nothing worse than coming home...
Good times for you guys. I thought that boat looked familiar. Enjoyed the video. Christopher must have outgrown his last set of grundens by now.
Definitely no Albacore down here. We cant wait for them to show (since o9). In the meantime though we will have to settle for the other,s.
Fishing with kids is the best!
OBTW... your his favorite uncle
Looks like my trip in mid July will be good
Congratulations on a fine job of raising a wonderful daughter.
Good successful day
One is wayyy better than none.
Yup a green and yellow skirt gets my wood too.
Good going on the fish. Definitely a rarity having them hit the troll
Do pretty good across from the shelter island ramp too
Islands to the rescue.
Good report thanks
Not scientific Jim,thats for sure. I bought my first semi in 1984. Owned a few.
Electric car owners I've talked with have told me they get...
Same thing but I did mine to a Volvo 290. Waaaay easier to steer than cable.
500 miles for trucks is equivalent to 250 miles on a boat. till not bad.
Remember boats are going uphill when there moving, no coasting.
Dig the report! Fine job dad!
Way to GO!
I'm finding out more than a few of us has joined or will join the brotherhood of bionic hips. Got mine in 06, named my new boat after...
Way to go. Now enjoy your rewards!
Albacore brings good memories with mixed bad emotions. For me to get my fix I hookup with great guys in Washington. Never lets me down. Bad is...
Agree with the others and their experiences. I , also have caught yellow-tail rock fishing. Nice surprise and bonus!
Hoping were done with the...
Great write up Cory. I just relived my hip replacement through your story. As time go on you will heal and be fishing stronger and better than ever.
Yup.... What they say!
Anybody know Francisco, owner of Triton marine?
A great mechanic, however he is MIA. He has some of my parts . We started the project in January...
Bring em on!
Fuck ya!!!! You guys killed em!
Good news thanks for the report
Nothing better than catching fish with the kids. Atta boy Travis!
I confirmed with Sydney Fox at the zoo. She said it was wide open.
Not there. Pretty fast when its that close!
A great surprise!
Gotta love when it gets to color. That's when it gets real exciting!. Lol
It's looks to me its at the weekend free mooring. While that one looked good there has been some pretty rough ones there occasionally.
Hell I've used old fuel in equipment all the time. Water will settle and be on the bottom. Make sure you have water seperating fuel filters. Drain...
You got out and froze with fish . Beats warm at work!
Its California. Sometimes I think they want the regs to be confusing. Unless you speak non English. Then it's plain as can be. Open season year...
Good you were fishing
Nice Home guard! Getting it with your dad aka gaf slipper . .. Priceless!
Who cares!!! Washington fishermen are bad ass.
F uck the socal cry babies. Lol
RIP Tony, I never met you but I feel I knew you . You are remembered with my favorite knot I tie.
No! But have thought about it many times. You have a idea?
Also recommend Propellers of San Diego. Top notch! He can give any advice you need.
Thanks, Have you sent them in before? I wonder the cost of shipping compared to my fuel going to point loma .
I thought Baker was mostly for...
Where do you guys take your bino's for tune ups? My Fuji's may need an adjustment or correction . Thanks
Seems to have some benefits.
FYI It doesn't work with any California ARB related issues. CARB claims it puts out the same particulate numbers....
Great trip you had. As was said before. Glad she's feeling well enough to go .
Why wait for summer?
Quick night! Makes the off the water by 6am on other trips seem like work. Lol
My dinner tonight
Good job! You guys are fish killer's
I think my old trailer got your boat to the ramp.
Unless your brother has his own boat !
That was awesome. Usually can't get that close while in the water. Great vis. Yellowtail to boot.
Sometimes the only thing a fish will eat is a...
I'll pass it along
Make a reasonable offer. He told me 600 won't buy it. Thanks
Gary what size boat will that work for?
Bump for Gary
bump for my friend
I'm selling for a friend. It was his fathers, until he died.
This is what I know:
1989 Four Stroke High thrust.
Electric start with a long 20 "...
Busted off on 50 lb.? They sure pull hard!
Be it as it may........ hoping for families to recover in a sad and difficult time.
The ocean that we love can be deadly. No-one here can say...
Chad. You were in the Skipjack thread too!
I guess I come from a different era!
How the hell can someone caught red handed plead not guilty?
No good sob.
Looks like a diamond in the rough.
I totally get not having the time though. Someone will have the means for a project like jack ship
Yup! And to all a good safe night !:jig:
Cool. There goes the 5 minute wait time at the bait dock!
Or..... and I hate to say it. Stay with gas and repower. A small block gas burner is 1/4 The cost. I can run 200 nm on mine plus. Plenty of times...
Yup.. and costs more.
Good load of fesh.
I wouldn't call it a skunk! You caught tons of fish ( on camera) . I was waiting for a giant halibut to take your bait. .
Just looked like they...
Way to go. Glad you had the 4th guy for limits!
Yup. Even though I won't need a boater card until I'm like 90. . I think it's good for all of us. I passed 4 months ago.
I never let fresh water touch the fish until I'm ready to cook it.
I also freeze it
They say December of this year is the completion date.
The 7/0 will get blue fin too:frehya2:
Capt John and his flying seamen
Well said. ALL NIGHT. Untill dawn if that what it takes.
I use a amber LED. I used one from a semi trailer. $5 total cost new from Napa. It has lasted over 7 years with no problems. Provides plenty of...
Yup! What he said
How did it taste?
Most likely pretty good. Strategic planning definitely pays off.
I, myself am more of a "get it done" type of guy. I am envious of someone that...
Sorta like women... You think you have them partially figured out and then you dont....
Key word... only so much thinking, then have fun.
Not quite at the 60 mark yet but I heard it calling last time I was pulling. LOL
But you said screw it and went solo. Good job on getting em!
meanwhile my boat sits at the dock.
Liked the day time night time fade in
What do fishing and NASCAR have in common?
1 You can say "let me check out your rod" to a guy, and he will show it too you!
2 Getting blown out...
Blue fin and sheephead. Nice fishing on the high spot.
All blue fin have a contract with Shamano. They can only eat flatfalls. [IMG]
Maybe. Don't forget this is a government contract. Lol
The hardest thing about picking up mylars are just after you set the trollers out and you see them hard port. Wide turns to get them.
Had a boat following us around setting up where we would drop one time. The whole area was empty!.
I finally told my buddy he needs to stfu. His...
Way to go!
Keep track of the tides. Look for the current and make sure your bait trail will drift towards the structure. Plan to spend the whole night for...
Great detailed report. You guys did well
How about with the luck did they bite on bait or...?
Im curious. To go on the Chubasco are they slipped where O95 was before?
I like that bait container (tube). I haven't seen that type. Is it home made?
Big homeguard. Impressive on 15 lb.
Way to go. Fun time single handed!
Way to go Cory and Lal! :appl:
Wow!!!!! What a fish! As others said 307 works for me!
Nice change of pace from a few of the other threads.:appl:
Luv them fish.way to go!
Nice..... a little scary but nice!
Nice day on the water
Who said he was running his yacht? Or even on it for that matter . Dont be too quick to judge...
Thanks Gary! I haven't been on BD too much and didn't see it before.
Such a good dad you are. Congratulations on your sons fine catch.
I'm betting his fishing ability is because of you.
Time will tell as they piece the details back together. RIP
Perhaps were over thinking it? Lets state the obvious...........
It was caught in boiling watero_OLOL
IDK ? I would things divers wouldn't have taken your weight on your rope. Or your tube for that matter.
Diet? We see ling cod meat change color with their food intake? Not sure on that one though.....
Not your day . I know how you feel getting blanked.
We all do!. It's fishing
Oh how great is that!
Way to go!
Now he's your fishing partner!
Great job grandpa
I say stay more local to make it fun. The Bonita are close and on the troll should be fun . Throwing bait will get them to the boat and he can get...
Human error. Navy vessels have run into tankers and vice versa. Human error plain and simple.
This is the great time to get our future generations hooked on fishing.
Trying to get my 9 grandkids out on my boat.
I went out last night
3 of got 12 keepers
went home wet
Alot of shorts
Don't hold your breath... They were saying that a few years back. Steve is a great owner operator. Lol
No bonita fpr the boat?
Thanks for the report. Most of the tuna are a bit further south. Just out of range of the 3/4 day boats. I was on the Belle for a charter a few...
Good on you for trying to find the owner
I gave up doing that !
As one of the few. 29.6 % . I appreciate your report. Bonita has gotten a bad rap A lot has changed since the burlap sack days.
SMOKE EM IF YOU...
Ya buddy !!! What a day you guys had!
Oh shit. Lobster season is here.
Of course these guys will be doing similar acts when the season ends
Your not talking about the military ramp are you? Need the miltary id to launch. tight as hell.
Way to go!!!!. Nice fish by any standards.. especially mine!
Awesome report. Good Intel. Thanks
Still 20lb floor or are they less line shy. Thanks for the report
They looked better than peanuts!
You cant get em from the couch. Good try
You get an atta boy from me. Thanks for the report
Thanks for the detailed report. Did you switch to lighter colors in the afternoon trolling?
Caught fish and didn't have to clean the boat. Nice!
They pull hard. Trying to get the grandkids on it. Fun stuff
Great! They looked like they came up cooked. LOL
Sorta placed an order. Then filled it. Lol
Looks like his radar was still working....Not sure if they were watching it, but it was working.
Any buisnes that treats it's customers that way deserves recognition . Good going Kley
I don't care... I liked it all
I love report's like these! Great day for sure
Gotta love fishing with the kids. I told mine to keep an eye out for boats and he asked how about islands?. All lit up a cruise ship he...
Awesome report. Maybe edit the first date on your report that says 10-14 not 10-11. I knew what you meant. :D
Nice pictures. I'm envious of guys...
This is the newest.
We all know.... It's getting harder to fish within 12 miles in mexico:nopity:
We don't have a choice. Next...
Tuna thought it would rather get eaten by a human than a shark. Lol.
These are the days that make up for the 200 mile round trips and a clean boat.
That is awesome! Glad it worked out . One of the few lucky ones!
The weather was nice though....
Thanks for reporting . I
Great pictures! Looks like you guys did well. Thanks for the report.
What a difference a day makes. Yesterday our yft would not bite the bigger bait.
Idk might not have gotten the memo. Stomachs were filled with...
Hard to get them with all the skippies biting. Horrible weather also.!LOL
The yft were with the skipjack. Just a ratio of 4 to 1 for us yesterday.
The standard troll jigs are ALL WORKING. Dark in the morning brighter when the sun comes out
But as stated above. It's an ocean full of skipjack...
Nice. Everyone works together for fish.
It does work !
Thanks for the awesome report. Hope to do the same tomorrow. Look at that lake you were in.
How do you get to your fly bridge? Btw
Good try! You did better than I sitting on a runway!
It helps a lot. Thanks
What a great report!
Great job Brandon!
My friend fishing the Bisbee would have loved a triple. Me not so much
This report does not suck.
No...... Fat lady is not singing on my boat
Who's saying the A word?. Been a few this year . Most north of the Oregon line
Heartbreak for your friend that had it at color. Not sure who was more tired there . Lol
I f n love days like that!
I haven't had that kind of fishing since last year
Ive been in Alaska. Outta the loop!
Gotta admit the stress will drive em crazy...... But still?????
C..on! Really ?
Dove with them plenty.
Are you the first one complaining about seals too?
Oh how cool is that!
Sorry no. I bike it often but out of state for this last week. Some shady people hang out on the grass area.
Hopfully you wont have too much...
Fish in the box takes the stress off
Better grade for sure. Taro knows how to put his customers on fish
Good job Steve on spotting a paddy
FYI I got my yf in the dirtier water last week.
We all suck at fishing sometimes....yours is just a little bit...
Thanks for the reply's! Great intel !
I would hate to go to a port and not fish. Frank did you have to make advanced reservations and how much $ ?...
You got fish. And came back under your own power. That's a good day
Good day for sure. Thanks
Wife and I will be on a cruise landing Wednesday Sept 26 . We will be in early enough and I thought I'd try to fish it. Any short trips there? Is...
Awesome shit. I missed this year fishing in Washington. The yellowtail caught my eye.
Nobody can say the Washington fishermen aren't determined...
Cool stuff. I was out on Wednesday hearing from someone on the radio south of me saying a 200 pod of killer whales were feeding on dolphin ....
All I know is the hooping pressure will be less
Great video !
Good job on the slay fest
Hopefully they just came out of the ice.
Took us an hour to clean our load. Felt like a deck hand on my own boat. Lol
Great report. I may have been out gunned yesterday myself, but got a few jumbos on the troll rods also baited on 50 lb.
Daisy chains were bit all...
Out there yesterday! Didnt get any marlins to bite our jigs. WTF?
Only pesky bigger sized yft....
I think I talked to you on the radio. So many paddies so little fish
We went back inshore a ways and finally found the yft on the ponys.
Thanks for the report
Awesome. First and last patty of the day
Lol. Nice report! I had to go to Washington for the longfins.
Private boating is the hardest most best way to fish. It's exhausting and can be stressful beyond words. I always want my friends to get fish....
You bet!. . Nicely done
Bitter sweet !
Great detailed report. Musta been a blast on the fly rod. Until you got spooled. Lol
Envious. I haven't picked a bft this year from the islands. Plenty of times out there too. Then some SOB goes out on first trip and gets one. Lol...
Thanks for letting us know. . Nice yellowtail
Great right up. Did you say Ray fishes hard? :D
I think it's more fun pulling on skipjack all day than trolling 12 hours for a single fish.
We got dodos last 2 weeks on feathers. Only further...
Also thanks for the report
Don't forget some of the most comfortable bunks.
I never had a bad ride
Yup I dont buy from landing. Extra $ for them to handle the paper. Convenient and easy yes. Cheaper no!
I used to do that 15 years ago. Sorta a...
Thanks Gary. I thought I had blocker off. They responded quickly!
Are you fishing there or looking for a place for your boat ?
Dan's was easier. I had an account but it never recognized me on Papa J's site. Keep telling me my email was already used? Mexico? Ill know later....
Years ago... and I mean many years ago I would spray diesel before and after dunking the trailer in salt water. Kept the rust down on a painted...
Off topic ! But totally agree with how bad jet ski's are.
I do try to give kayaks and SUP's (being one also) A wide pass.
I stay out of channel...
Definitely! Debi makes an excellent point. Hiding behind an Island in windy conditions keeps you protected.
But at some point you need to make...
And a hell of alot less crowded too!
:appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:
What a great story!...
New rod for $60. with a warranty. Win!
That was the jack pot fish?

Down here we use those macs for yellowtail . Great Salmon!
Shits that the longfins are a distance out.
Sorry, I think that's funny. :banned:
Seriously though. Nice catch ! :appl:
Fished off shore. 425 -371. We even trolled around the tuna pens. Most hits were on the zuker mex flag when the sun came out. Black and purple...
I went. Weather wasn't as bad as predicted.
Calm in the morning but real bumpy coming back up the line.
110 nautical miles
This Kali kid is going :fighting0061:
Cant be any worse than crossing the bar at Westport! :D
Im still monitoring the intel. Short swell means bumpy and rough. Higher wind will make for a faster drift.
With that said the guys i talked to...
Ya I know! That's what gets me. Nice dodo's! Many times I stayed at the dock glad I did. Other times I was wrong and it was flat.
I have been...
X3 FUCK! Your going to get em ( just put in a little more effort )
Dove with them at Guadalupe. Big lugs. Slow and lanky. ....
Until they want what they want.Fast. very fast. But a 10 ft won't take on a seal...
Wishing it away won't change the weather.. I'm sure the friends from Alaska might not understand. I had friends from Washington tell me 25 knots...
Its a good crew and boat. Steve is fishy. Was Sarah still working the deck?
Sometimes the last spot is the best spot. But you wouldn't know it if you didn't go.
Thanks for the report.
Nothing sucked about that report.
Damn NOAA is often wrong!
Just a heads up. Im planning a trip monday and it looks rough. Hitting a few other sites to confirm weather. Please chim in if you see a better...
Fun to see something other than blue fin coming over the rail. Lol
Also seen boats in Baja filled with water. We had to go thru a cat 4 in baja docked and what seemed to help was having it face bow first into...
Long trip. Next trip will be shorter and limits!
For some (Myself included) its not just the fishing aspect, its the life style. Hanging on the boat for a few days doing not much of anything....
Not jumping on the Big Eye debate. Damn good report. Thanks for the intel
Good job Dad! . Great hook and hand Jeff! You created your fishing partner for life! You guys rock!
#Kids wont forget!

Agreed! Its a very delicate meat. Breaks down quickly. Well iced and bleed as others said is great as poke and sashimi fresh. After that its a...
Even the Washington Fish & Wildlife wore crocs. What will they do now? [ATTACH]
LOL So True! For me it wasnt weeding out Skipjacks. It was a scratchy bite. Our lead deckhand was John Collins. (grouchy). Roy had an assembly...
Good job. Excellent report. The YFT are still pushing north.
A lot of the big fish jumping .........every where but on a hook. Frustraiting but still a sight to see!
Congratulations on the nice dorado's
Tons of credit to you all!
Happy guys right there! Congrats to all !
Cool! Gotta go when the getting is good!
Where they biting 1/0 hooks? 20 lb test seems about right.
Sportboats (rarely) Short deck boots or wet shoes . Some good ones that are close to tennis shoes but dry quickly.
Private. flips wet shoes

Post from 2010. Even had Poe chime in!
Oh ya...yes I do :shithappens: on my boat. I call it a luxury to have a head
I think we ALL can understand ..... When fishing is in your blood it's hard to let it go.
John Grabowski seemed to make the transition work....
OK ! LOL
Wow! Nice report! Glad you got a few. Far from wide open but hard work pays off. Thanks
Nice report Cory... As usual. Glad to know you got one
Wow. 16.8 gallons fuel!. I seem to burn that getting bait. Lol
Thanks for the report. Fish are pushing north
You were out and gave it a go! Did you go west of the 43 also? Thanks for the report!
Hey Ron! Glad you were out. Im thinking more schools are working their way north!

I spent years there but it was during the beginning when the dredging and docks were being put down. Back then the ramp was sand. I know they do...
I think I hit a nerve?:D
All of us boat owners do. Lol
Nothing a trip on a half day won't solve.:frehya2:
For the ease of things its great. Hop on a boat catch a fish eat a burger drink a beer (priced higher for both) When you are back at the dock....
Good to know Christopher is still making his dad proud! How old is he now?
Oh no!! Not the brother in law Bob. :eyepoppin:)
Anyone ever take their refrigerator to get worked on? Mine now doesn't get cold. It has power just wont get cold.
Before I Break out another...
Yup I agree!
I installed a new tank on my Slipjack. No coating. I raised it up slightly off the keel using HDPE board so it can drain. I...
way to go!
Pretty similar the day before. You got out and got some. Nice report!
Not sure where you got your information from. As a former commercial diver I do agree with you that they dont own the ocean and should not have...
They are running . I had to do a double take when I saw them at the islands. I had heard the repairs were too costly to keep her going. Glad they...
A lot of wind from Monday. I was south Saturday and monday and the water dropped about 2 degrees. It will rebound most likely by today. Best of luck
Good job you and your girl. Gotta love the weekend lunatics.

It is done all the time
Just my old man street creed kicking in. After I did the post title I realized what I said but was either too cool or not computer savvy...
Mostly bones but they were happy to pull on something. Neither had caught them or yellowtail before. Alot os swing and misses. Lol
Also there. I fished skr with some nubs from Sacramento.
Enjoyed the trip uphill?
Trigger grilled with yellowtail on the bar b q.
I only had it as ceviche before.
Anyone else catch them this close to home?
Catch them all the time south.... I mean east cape south. Never this close to home
Yup we made it thete too. Nice report
Well not literally but fished it Saturday like a bunch of others did.
Some really agresive calicos in the mix in the middle grounds.

Sounds like it! But you never get em if you dont try!
Nice report . Thanks
I'm beat reading your report. But Shit who on the board here hasn't ran long to catch local. Good you got something for the trip. Good job being...
BADASS! BF on the Steel! Nice. Not often a boat can get Yellows-Bluefin with a halibut.
Not sure about your furuno. Mine did that years ago . Then quit entirely .
Alot of bait everywhere out there. I heard of some yellows being...
Yum..mantis. ..watch your fingers. They'll eat em up . Or at least wish they were gone. Lol
Good you got out
Went out to the 9 and a ton of life. No fish on board but my all time total has shot up to 14 mylar balloons.
A ton of bait there and birds...
Yup my 290 I did the same way.
No foam!!! I just replaced a fuel tank sealed in foam. Foam equals sealed in moisture to destroyed metal aluminum included.
You did fine. NICE REPORT

Excellent read! All the pain goes all the glory. Good crew helps.

Makes you wonder .
Write a check is right! But every one will be able to fish on your boat now. What's it run ?
Thinking the down side is the wife won't be...

A day on the water is a good day.
Your bonus is fish.
Looks nice! I use a horse trough though. I didn't see how much they cost.
What ever the brand! We all love them but sometimes they just dont love us back !
Keeping this old post alive. Anyone have information on a 25 flybridge tank tear out? .... Yup mine is leaking. ....damn
Hey I liked the video. Close to home too!
Ok Bob......You said name my 6 pack.
It,s only fitting. :D
I use wet shoes in summer. Cheap, made to get wet and dry fast. Find them at costco for under $12.
Everyone needs another anchor. I'm suprised it's not gone. A long way for me though
A pleasure to meet you. Bob will be happy. Best of luck on your 2nd story.
The beast made the trip. Lol[ATTACH]
Garmin helm has been discontinued? News to me! That would do it all!
Good to know. My standard map on my garmin doesn't blank out.
All is fine and well... Until they leak mid season. I hate the whole system. I understand it but dislike how a bad mating surface can take out a...
That was exactly what the mechanics told me also. I sanded and mated them and torqued to specs and re torqued after I put about 5 hours on them. I...
They look really good for their age. Mine looked better but still had leaked.
Keep an eye on them or a new motor is in your future
I'm betting what you would spend on a new antenna to work would be about the price of a whole new unit with better results.
X2. I met and fished with some really good guys up your way.
Wfo chickens out of Westport. Fun times.
I have had problems with the off brands. They can and (in my case ) will destroy your motor. I have had barr last season with limited hours leak....

That guy.........He gets around !
Looked like a good time and nice sized yellows on the iron = fun!
Last few years back, we would call it quits when the son was rising. LOL

We don't need no stinking zincs. Just a waste of money
I think that sail boat was a timex
It took a licking and kept on ticking. Lol
Only 8? . I say we pull the semi motor. Replace it with yours. On your pre trip say it never started.
Problem solved. .....
Bob. I always told my kids "never finance fun".....
So kid..... lol
Wow. And I feel concerned when I'm close to the surf zone.
Sounds like you guys went catching!
Those golden palmetto are beauties.
I had a drone visit me in La Jolla in the evening just before the new year. (I didn't shoot it down)...
Way to go
That take out nurse could probably keep your arm busy exercising . Lol
Another thread that went south!
Alexis made contact with you . At least they did that. Poor excuse and saying sorry doesn't make it better....
Well now that the injured are squared away.....Really sorry for your traffic mess. I go to Washington to fish. Never yet had traffic issues. Makes...
Sorry for anyone that was effected by this tragedy. I hope they sort our the mess and solve it.
December blue fin. Yup
Ron you should have the body of a bionic 30 year old by now! With all the surgeries you've had LOL
Wow! You know the kite surfers were loving the wind in the East Cape. ...me not so much. Great report Gary
You all did better than I
Well done gentlemen
Wow.... Talk about muscle memory!
All the secret spots have remained secret. Lol
Wedding broke my bank! :cheers:
Man you were the hot stick. Good going
Thanks to your son and all that served.
I have never fished the Mustang but will if the opportunity presented itself. I know the captain comes...
You said all we need to know!
Way to go on the bottom fishing.
I hate to say it but I'm sorta worn out tugging on tuna and looking forward to some rockfish.
I would say something but you have said it all. Nice boat!
I caught a 109 bft on it . Then caught an 136 bft right after that. On private boats you have the option to help run them down if...
Time on the water with your son. Priceless.
Even better in that sloppy water. LOL
Buy your own boat!
Gives you the chance to plan where to fish. Find the fish , chum the fish. Catch the fish, Gaff the fish, clean the fish ....
If I don't get to your store will you ship?
Way to go! Good job on getting out.
Usually have my best balloon days on Mondays and Tuesday. I think from the weekends.
But mothers day? Fuck that's in may
Not a thing wrong with your day.
Good job. I was on the tribute when an emergency situation stopped our fishing to get a helicopter to pick up a elderly sick passenger....
I'm betting it's November and none of us are complaining. Lol
Looked like a lake
I would tow my last 20 with my one ton. Because that was the truck I had.
One time when my truck broke down we towed it with my friends 1/2 ton....
Nice. Your boat rocks Markus!
Wow good job on lobzilla. 40 ft ? I seemed to get shorts at that depth. Might be my spots. Lol
Great detailed report. We were going to run Saturday but a few things are getting in the way of me going . Maybe a sign. Thanks
Gotta love the days when the fish, friends and beers are never ending
Had some fresh bonita sushi for an appetizer before our turkey today....
They lobbied hard. Safety trained my ass! Ever see the rental sailboats coming in on Mission Bay? or jet ski's? OMG! be afraid be very very afraid!
How many teams were in this last year Mike?
History is in the making!. 20 years from now we will be talking about getting cows on 11/2 day trips. Epic!
Fishing the big fish bft and broke off an owner circle. Anyone else?
I heard eagle claws are better for 5 o and bigger. Thoughts
I got nothing......
Man........ great memories! None for me. I'm a San Diego native. Lol
Nothing but good info today. BTW Seasons catch fish.
Also I sleep well on the 095
I miss washington fishing. Just not as much right now. Sorry guys
I've caught halibut in Washington and in California. I may need to make a plan now to split the difference to cover the west coast. Thanks for...
Great detailed report Gary as usual.
Just waiting for my next trip!
I was there 2 days earlier and tons of life there. Water was a little off color but 68ish
Things can turn on a dime. But hey, you got out!
Why move it at all? Grade under it and support the footing it's on. Cut your grade lower and 2x4 your supports and fill with concrete to hold...
From my point of view it was a hell of a trip. Also looked like glass on the water. Good job
Bummer you had a bad night. We only got 7 legals for the 3 of us. Better luck next time
Hell Gary! That's long enough for us to drink a beerLOL
A lot of talent on the water. Crazy that the bass wanted on the boat! Always need the A game when fishing that tight to the boilers.
Jon, That's a great idea. I appreciate your input. Mine had died from overheating while running it harder than the directions advised. The...
The overheating is what took out my machine. Food saver directions say to wait between sealing to let it cool down.

Tuna for thanksgiving!
Lol I would be up there all day.lol
Ps I enjoyed it up there too!
Great boat and crew hands down! Booger is a fishy dude. You should see him throw the iron.
I usually pick whats biting that week (or day). The weather has been changing so a week ago yellow fin tuna was an option close. Who knows by Nov...
Steve, what are you using as buoy's. Are these waterproof?
Rich that's an awesome idea! Thanks!
Do you rotate your fish? How long is too long for it before it looses it's flavor?
Just trying for information and seeing if things have changed.
Thanks Rick. I know with the food saver I would have to pre freeze or chill the fish first.
Thanks Leo. Using food saver bags are a plus since I have a bunch still. Have you used your yet? Does it seem to vacuum / seal good?
Last week as I was packing my catch of Tuna and Yellowtail midway thru my machine stopped sealing. I stopped bitching about it after my wife...
Yes how true. People can run too fast at night and if the other boat is not paying attention you can take evasive action.
I know on a clear calm...
I have fished that boat more than any other sportboat. Not just because I sleep so well but the crew all have nic names that Crack me up!. Rick...
Seemed to me like a good day. - the rope. I don't ever seem to have bad bait from mb. At least not the extra run and time to get there.
Change your title to bad day fishing. FML doesn't fit.
Ps nice ride.
:):pI could hoop all night with her
:eek::D Long night. Good on letting the old big one go. That's Hardcors younger brother.
No doubt a fun day! Thanks to Woody to donate his time ! Ill have to remember to take pictures of all the balloons I gaff in a season.

Ive kept them alive for days with a frozen milk jug in an ice chest.
I have never hooked a dolphin. If it was my post I would have said I hooked a big marlin. LOL
Great cheap day!
I'll start the discussion. Bones make great lobster bait , bled and iced they also taste pretty damn good.
Cool looking jigs. I never fished the east coast. Look like fun ones and from what I hear live bait isn't always an option there.
Oh you beat me to that! PS What a game !
Gotta love these fall days!
All in the "name of god"
Wayyyy better than flying a plane into buildings or killing someone because your god is different than their god!
Haha! Gotta love bonita! .
Remember they weren't here for a while! Same time the Albies were gone?
Good variety! Glad your kid got to pull on some fish!

Yup. What he said!.
The bigger models were swimming a little deeper. Got it on a AA Taddy. Fun

I was bouncing YFT Bob ! If one didnt make it over the rail, then 5 more were waiting their turn.
And you pick your weather days! That day it was a lake! Good Job!

Your word of advice is taken. Heading out
Jumping on the wagon. Been their multiple times. The wife loves it! Book now and catch roosters and marlin and wahoo same day.

Better attorneys. Tourists concessions have deeper pockets.
Still the same.
This will allow the amateur backing up show to continue. lol
slow trolling gets the job done
That sir is a detailed report! Fishing.
Nice! Good Joe got out with you and had his picture taken. That guy gets all the fish! lol
Likewise Cristin. I radioed you before on the minke and spinners. It would be awsome to see the pod here .
Look like fun
I have said . Going on a sportboat is a luxury trip. Being a pb.
You would have skunked if you didn't have that beer on board. .............and they say beer is bad for you... bs.

Way to go on a slug. Just when you think it's time to rethink the strategy you change socks and get em!
Good job Rambo and crew!
Nice hand gaff! Something to do with that size. Nice video also. Thanks for your report
Nothing but good things on this trip for you and your daughter. Enjoy them. I did with my kids and now grandkids are out fishing me. Lol.

Yup makes great fish & chips!
Nice Lings those are fatties!
That would be a unbelievable day here!
Way to go ! On the fly? Something I need to try!
ps Cool Name LOL
Not the plugged boat that you were hoping for. But those are 3 more albies than I got this year. No skunk in my book!
Awesome size! You "Washington boys" are the envy of us Kali fishermen!
One difference is when I fished your waters a good day weather wise
Spend the extra money and buy the 14 x 40's. As time goes on you wont regret it.
Yum halibut. I like big butts I can't lie
Unfortunately I will be out looking offshore for them. Lol
It sure looked tasty. Glad you let it go

Good job .I would have done the same thing!
ps my phone did auto correct. Way to go! LOL
Why to go
Absolutely nothing better than that. Way to go!!! Great job putting him on that monster dad

That's why they call it ... well you know. But a trip on the water was still better than my day working.
Good try Gary, you were where they...
We all understand that!
Keep up the GI Joe pictures too!
Hey ! A good day on the water, you came back in without being towed AND you caught fish. Sounds like a nice trip to me!
Plugged the boat and close! Good job!
Those days did not suck!
Great video. I was also out there in the crowd. I caught so many huge bone and bass I lost count. No yellowtail for us
Good looking food. Yum
Nice same day report. Just imagine the weekend there .
Complete mayhem! Bloodier the decks the better. If I dont have to clean up!
hilarious only because it didn't happen to me!
Hopefully the skipper made the deckhand scrub the side with a tooth brush.

Get there early for a spot to park though.

Was out the day before !
Flat: love it on the water
but not on women! :boobies:
Good going on the solo day!
Gotta love the clicker going off! :drool:
It sure has a way to wake the boat up! Good job! :appl:
I fish private boats 95% of the time.
I use braid on all my reels. Mostly for the longevity, sensitivity and additional line capacity. I fish a...
HaHa Didnt happen!...
True bloody deck style!
Man that would have been a toad Opah. Total advantage goes to the shark.
Not sure of the patties you were at . All ours were producing in those...
Way to Go!
Under that hard ass attitude and occasional screaming beats a fine human being! LOL
Good Hardcore Karma! :appl:
These are the good ole days! When you 1 paddy is all you need!
Cool that people respect each other. Divers-fisherman.
For what its worth I let...
Please keep us up to date on this. Im curious to see if this is common of many or just a few reels. I haven't had a problem with Shimanos customer...
Excellent report. Pain that hurts so good
It was flat. We went just a little more south and got our dodos and a few yellows
Fun and painful report all wrapped up in one. Also liked the fact , GI Joe got some action. Good job men!
Ya! Nothing wrong with your day. Fishing with your kids is epic!
Appreciate the report. You'll get them next time. Nice looking plugs. I bet they would have gotten you something. We were out and saw plenty of...
Thanks Robert. I couldn't get the pictures to prove it! lol
Edit....I guess it wont load with out a pass word Also not just the other day. But they tried to weigh it at the bait dock. His friend called in a...
Not quite at the harbor.... More like 100 nm west.
Great report! Thanks for that! Oh and happy birthday to your son!
actually lobster taste horrible so stay away!
Nobody likes them!
At work but learning more about trolling!
My recommendation is ..... Use a contract boat with the cruise ship.
I used a contract boat in Mazatlan and they had good gear. It came with a...
As one of the Asshats on the board here:)
Gary, can you help me catch a fish? :jig:
Seiners worked them hard for days on end also the front side of Clemente.
But to answer your question......Both just not consistent for me lately...
I doubt it! But it would be fun to remember the eclipse by fishing it. I cant remember any other eclipse and what I was doing. Besides if you suck...
Your trip was alot like mine. Nice conditions also. The dodos are so damn skinny!
We may have had a couple missed sticks yesterday ourselvs but...
Steve I cant believe you blanked! We all do though.... Your area was way north of my trip yesterday but my back and arms are sore from another...
Maybe with the influx of Bonita we might have a chance of more around and possibly baiting them. It has always been my understanding, when swords...
Tim, I also was on that trip with you. I cant find the video of it though. But I do agree that someones life takes precedent over fish.
Looks to me like you have your crew for many years to come! Good job.
Now that the monkey is off your back be ready to take them on plenty of...
Depending on their age. If its first timers just buy a few sabikis and let them catch mackerel. Its not what they catch....Its that they catch...
Way to go!. Yup the dodo trick has worked for ever. Good putting it back out
Thank you for the same day report
What a great report. Did you get it on a troll, jig or bait?
Really not familiar with it Noah. But price sounds good for a 2 speed 50 wide. Especially for shore fishing where the salt and sand is a major issue.
No selfie! other friends along
I had a chance to take a friend out that does filming for some media channels. I was able to get a few dodos on this paddy with jigs, but when he...
Some smaller dodo straight out. Your cuz sure looks happy....but then who wouldn't . Nice bull. This Doug likes the report.
Way to go Bob.
Catching fish $$$
Catching fish with your kid. Priceless
That's just fun fishing right there! Nicely done
Thats the one Gary!
I rest my case! ....And your Welcome . lol:frehya2:
No! Windlass is NOT for sale.
I think so. Please see above
I will have to look! I might still have it. Bob cleaned me out of a lot of things but he left the wife, the dog and a few other things. lol !...
Eric next sportboat I go on will be the Eclipse!
Eric will it still be at Seaforth?
I'm pretty sure Dana Point sport fishing offers a kids deal on Sundays. First they put on a clinic and then they go out fishing a 1/2 day. I...
How cool is that
Here....... try on these gloves!
An inspiration! Byron so glad your doing well!
His attorney was Richard Hertz.
He never practiced law in L.A before
When the judge heared he was in the courtroom
The judge asked the bailiff...
You did what you had to do!
Time after time the cops are not able to handle this shit because more people are offended over everything! Fuck...
Good attitude! Next time bring it up as the fish is coming over the rail or at cleaning time to confirm with the other team members it's an equal...
Something about fishing with kids can change your whole perspective on fishing. Suddenly you relies that fishing is fun and to take in every...
Good job. I agree that is a great boat.
Good job and thanks
Sorta like biting off more than you can chew! Poor shark! [ATTACH]
I dont think things have changed. Why would a 3/4 boat be able to process and run to the Islands daily. That would fuck up that whole system....
Plus no response to those that had something good to say! Thanks at the very least.
Business 101: any business issues should not be handled in a...
Yea bigger wire the better but you have yours in already. Lets step back from that for a minute.
Do you tie it off on a cleat whenever your at...
I'm thinking this is changing a bit now. My last trip out I got YFT on the trolled feathers. Sure is nice to hear the clickers starting to go off...
I think in your case they may have applied for the permits in advance. Also wanted to make sure nobody's were expired.
Not sure about this...
