Orange ya glad ya got some? :rofl:
No minimum size....
Kelp rockfish aka: "dumb bass"
I'd guess it's something along the lines of: "catch starry rockfish, grill, eat".....:D
Welcome to the big, dysfunctional family!
Ha ha! That's pretty funny! Didn't even notice that was almost 10-yr-old post! I think you're right about the scale too. On second look, it looks...
Might wanta edit those pics. Fishing regs prohibit gaffing any undersized fish. Not preaching, just trying to help everybody stay legal and out of...
Nicely done on the 30#! Beautiful fish there!
× 2 !!!
I caught a fsh with no eyes once
Sacrilege !!! :D
I'm with you on that! I fish yellows on patties with a 20# steelie/salmon rod, 15# fluoro on a 2k spinning setup. Got up to 23#'er so far. Too...
I worked with sharks for many years @ SIO. My best guess is salmon shark. Based on the photo, it looks like the white ventral coloring extends up...
I blame Al Gore.....
I dunno. Looks more like 35.9# in that last pic.....:p :p
In SoCal mole crabs are bigger than sand crabs, they eat the smaller sand crabs, are found in the same areas as sand crabs, and will bite the crap...
Daiwa Proteus XXH might be a good match. Lifetime warranty.
Thanks for the info!
How did THIS get resurrected? A 2011 post?
I scuba those beds regularly and see them pretty much every dive. They're thick in there and range 30-400+ lbs. (My avatar was shot there) They...
Also, Lingcod limit reduced from 2 to 1.
New U.S. depth limits for ground fish in effect this year starting March 1: 450'. I called DFW today and confirmed that.
Vermilion. A couple good-sized honeycombs in the box. No canaries or starries but got a 2# flag rf (aka: barberpole).
:D Yeah, usually when auto-correct does its thing, it's nowhere near what I'm trying to say! This time it kinda worked out.
Title was supposed to be "Bottom-scratching", not Bottoms catching. Thanks auto-correct!
Spent a couple hours on my buddy Jon's boat in 240' near the corner for a nice mix of vermilion to 3#, some of the larger honeycomb rf's I've...
Can't decide which is better.....the fish-porn, or the food-porn!
Jackpot deal fer sure!
As long as you're in water shallower than 360'. That might have been the issue on earlier trip.
Wow, what a dick. :D
Thanks Obama! :p:p
I've seen them rigged as daisy chains with 3 in a row and trolled with no kite or balloon
Nope. You can get them with wings out or folded.
No dungeness down this far south. Lobster season doesn't open for another 3 wks
BS without pics. Pretty heinous targeting 7# striped marlin. :D
......and a sick perv. Undoubtedly only given mustache-rides to his family members. More than happy to say it to your face, but you're just...
Not that complicated....just dickless and a douchebag.
Everyone except dickless douchebags!
More like "dick-less".
Coupla nice feesh! Well done!
Huh! She used to tell me to call her "Raven".....
Dodos.....4 feet long and an inch-and-a-half thick!
2 batteries walked into a bar. The bartender says, "OK, I'll serve you, but don't start anything."
They were at the north end of the 9-mi. Bank. Saw tuna lightly foaming and sinking out for an hour or so around 11:00. Couldn't get any to go and...
Nice! Chunky looking fish!
The sign of a true ignoramous is one who doesn't know how to spell ignoramus
Instead of adding a split-ring and barrel swivel on the line end, why not just use a good quality snap-swivel? Seems like you'd get the same...
Great pics! One happy kid there! Good job Dad....
Holy crap Jason! I read that whole thing and now I have a headache! :D
No dungeness this far south. Rock crab open year-round. 4" minimum size. You're required to have a crab gauge (caliper-type) in your possession...
Want bigger perch? Try a bigger bait. You been getting small ones on 2" sandworms? Move up to a 3" curly tail Grub in motoroil or red sparkle. Or...
You just suck it, right? :p :gay: :oops:
$315 brand new online w/free shipping. Of course, you don't get the salt-encrusted line or all the nicks and scratches for that price
Daiwa makes a great 8-1/2', 2-pc. Salmon/Steelheader in several weights/actions called the "North Coast". I love mine!
I have no doubt that cops and wardens jobs don't include being on "your side".
Talking with game warden today about that, he says that all west coast states have a reciprocal agreement when it comes to violators, whether...
3 B's! Bonies, bass, and the Bubba!
I use a 8'6" 2-pc. Okuma Celillo w/a Penn Conflict and fish jerkbaits almost exclusively. Casts about a mile.
How about "Fred"?
BS w/no pics.......aka "Fake News......Sad!"
I've kept em alive for a week in a cooler with seawater (had to add a couple gallons every 3 days) with a small battery-powered aerator, available...
I like how the OC Reg spelled orcas "ocras" in their link. Thought maybe I'd see some gumbo pics. :D Dammit! Now I'm jonesing for some soul-food....
There's never been an authenticated account of an orca attack on a human in the wild. In captivity.....we'll that's a different story. Containing...
You have spots up there without commercial traps ???
Man, down here every rock the size of your head has at least one trap on it!:D
Really? Wouldn't eat lobster from there? Or halibut? Do your homework. It's only fish that eat bottom-dwelling inverts (worms, filter-feeding...
Because there are fish to be caught....THAT'S why! o_O
Looks l more like 40-50 yds. Didn't you ever play football?
Well dang! I think for my 13th I got a whuppin'. (Pretty sure I deserved it)
More pics please......
They were jumping and breaking all over the MPA between Moonlight and Tabletops Saturday!
Whole wall-full of glow FFs in all sizes @ Blue Water Tackle in Solana Beach
So.....you caught TWO limits in one day?
Haters gonna hate! Just another migita pobrecita....
The "200-post newbie with just 20 likes" pretty much says it all.
ps so what is black with a white stripe???
They're all over the lagoons in SD No. County for the past couple months
Saw a whole wall-full of FFs & Snipes in glow and all other colors @ Blue Water Tackle in Solana Beach.
X2! Plus Mom looks kinda happy with that y'tail. Nice work!
Holy Cow! That's a serious bunch of smiles on that boat! Well done!
U too Travis
Sum kinda fun on the popper, I'll bet! Very nic!
Here's some actual info from Stanford University and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute on SoCal shark attacks, as reported by the LA Times....
How about citing some evidence to back up your "proven fact"? All the evidence I've seen contradicts that statement, and I see it all - it's my job.
Caught in Agua Hedionda lagoon. Did some research and found the IGFA all-tackle world record for them is 10 lbs. 6 ozs. (from SD Bay). This one...
So the shortfins have orange mouths too? I did not know that! I just assumed that it was the other because of that orange. Time for me to study up...
Apparently wiki hasn't caught up to the fact that corvina are also caught on the beaches and in the lagoons! 8-)
Vina! With a V ! ;)
Threw some x-raps for 5 short halis (1 just barely!) and this nice orangemouth. That's a 28" cutting board so that would be a legal wsb! Fished an...
That young man definitely looks hoked! :D Rockin' the Xtra-tufs.
When I first started collecting for Scripps some 25 yrs ago, every Cuda that we handled and then moved to holding tanks would die within 2-3 days,...
Just an FYI to all y'all out there.....I worked for Scripps Inst. of Oceanography for many years as their bio-collector. When you handle cudas...
Sarcastic Fringeheads look just like albies when they boil
Nothing wrong with the boat. Nothing wrong with the spinner. But you have the handle on the wrong side of the reel! :D
Uninformed, possibly biased opinion (Shimano rep?). I've had Calstars, Seekers, Phenixes, Penns, and more over the years. Right now I have an 8'...
I've tried em. The Berkeley Gulp peeler crabs work better
U.S. - 10 yellowtail, but only 5 can be under 24".
Mexico - 5 yellowtail, no size limit.
The few times I've been lucky enough to jp I've given it all to the crew. It's free money! AND I pay my galley tab and fillet bill out of my...
That lure's for suckers!
Can't really see blaming the tackle shop when the line breaks. Knot failure?....then yes. Line breaks?....Sounds like you needed heavier line
That's a Bluebanded Ronquil (Rathbunella hypoplecta). Probably a breeding male from the dark coloration. The dorsal and anal fin ray counts line...
Is that a pic of it in your avatar? If so, you should really think about getting a new scale! :p: :p: :p:
Definition of a good day:
1) Went fishing
2) Nobody got hurt
3) Can use the boat again
Good day sir!
No, no, no. It's not about me. You are so obviously the most clever and witty poster ever! I am humbled by your presence. Keep up the good work....
Ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha ha-ha! U so funny! Which bar in Hillcrest u workin, stand-up/bend-over comic?
Some quality fish there! Good job & nice report.
That's a longfin sanddab. They're usually left-eyed but not always. Only flatfish around here with a pectoral fin that long
You suck at being a human being. You should probably try something else
Awww, man! And I could SO use a laugh today.....
Looking to add a few (more) to the box. Appreciate any input on sizes/colors for flatfalls, snipers, maybe wax wings too? Thanks in advance.
Yes. California Penal Code 481327, sect. C, prohibits public display of any game animal carcass, including fish....look it up!
Police??? More likely every cat in the 'hood!
Mr. Bean as the OP; Christopher Walken as the deckie. :p:
I like my deck hands (and women) the same way I like my coffee.....old, bitter, and picked up at a 7-11 :D
Nice fat cabs! Them's some sweet eats!
"Cage goes in the water? You go in the water? Shark's in the water? OUR shark?....Farewell and adieu all you fair Spanish ladies, farewell and...
How does this 6-yr. old report really merit re-posting? Just cuz of that recent YouTube vid? C'mon, man!
Now THAT is conservative use of punctuation! YOU, sir, should be in charge of California's water supply!
The bartender says, "We don't serve time-travelers here."
A time-traveler walks into a bar.....
Yeah, I've never frozen it. I'd gladly spend a day catching 10# bonies!
Couple years ago I caught some 12-15 lb'ers out at San Nick. Gutted and iced 'em immediately, then grilled 'em and served them to a couple of...
Only $300? You'll be getting off cheap!
P-Line Lazer Minnows in chovy pattern maybe?
You're reading my mind!.....
Finescale Trigger. Good eats! Skin like a shark almost, though. Will make you sharpen ur filet knife! I've seen a bunch of em while diving the...
Thanks for the report.... (sorta)
You're welcome! Kind of applies for all the rest of the week too, some might think
I believe everyone on earth falls into one of two categories: Cheaters, and Non-cheaters. No one ever just cheats once. You are either an honest...
"Farmed" = Long-line release
It was a sarcastic fringe-hoo. I saw it. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the LSD and absinthe. :rolleyes:
Thanks for the fishing report
That's a nice big cave troll!
30+ fer sure! :-) ...Nice job!:ele:
Wow!!! What! A! Report!!!
In answer to your questions: 1) Yes, and 2) Yes. So did you release the trashfish unharmed?
What?!?! No raging over the smaller model YTs? The pissers-and- moaners have lost their edge! :D
Flags? Flags? We don't need no stinking flags! We just go get the fish that need to get got without worrying about getting the lacy pink underalls...
You eat flies and mosquitoes? :confused: :D
R u guys major league baseball pitchers? Those beards are epic!
Tuna weren't attacking the shark. They use sharks as a means of dislodging parasites and random food particles from their gills. Since they can't...
Green Sea Turtle (Chelonias mydas). See them occasionally when I'm diving. Apparently there's a fairly large group (60-70) that live year-round in...
Wow! Those are some big yellowtail! :eek: :D
Think you're showing your inner self a little more than we all need to see
I bought all the kelp and cut it up into patties that I'm going to distribute offshore. And NO, you cannot have the co-ords!
Beauty! heading out tomorrow. Thanks for the report
Ever notice how people use those 2 words: "just saying" as their excuse for being an a-hole and trying to impose their opinions on everyone else?...
Speaking from experience.....keeping a "no possession" fish in your bait tank counts as possession. F&G can cite you for illegal possession and it...
How about "Lisa"? Reminds me of a Lisa I knew.....
Why on earth would you want to weigh something on a scale? :confused: :D LOL
Now THAT'S a fish report!
And yet, here we are on a fishing forum where people beg for fishing reports. Sounds like a fishing report to me!
.....technically known as "Pink Cockfish"
That was probly where I stopped to pee on the way back from the island....o_O
And the douche award for this thread goes to.......
Wouldn't they still publish it in the fish counts? Seems like they'd want to take advantage of it to get some trips booked. No telling when those...
And yet, if u go to the Dana Wharf website, they report no tuna caught and the Helena didn't even go out yesterday. Gotta side w/the April Foolers...
damn skippy, sherlock
Noo-oo-oo.....I was referring to your statement (twice) that "thinking isn't a requirement to post at BD". But feel free to read anything else...
Redundantly repetitious, AND continuing to make my point for me. Nice work!
Which must explain why we're up to our elbows in sea otters around here! Glad we got a marine life expert's input there! Or not.
Story I got from a marine biologist is it's caused by eating octopuses
More pics......less words please! I have a headache now
Went 20 mi. on 240° heading, then north to the 277, back in towards the domes and down to oside. Lots of patties. Lots of 1# yellows under those...
I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here
Correction, I was wrong. Sculpin are open. Just checked regs.
Sculpin also closed, I believe until March 15. Check the regs!
If the club you go to is in a refrigerator box under an overpass
Co-ord? How deep? What bait were you using? Birds? Porps?
Gosh, if only your Mom could read the pearls of wisdom you've imparted to all of us. She'd be so proud
Sounds like he was just upset there were no young guys onboard for rowdy little roscoe to cuddle up with
Mutant Sarcastic Fringehead
I speared one smaller than that! Hey....relax! I released it!
Holy hell! What a bunch of old women gossiping over the back fence this
website has become!
How far off were you?
I'd rather have a tainted bait......than a baited taint!
From what I've seen the last 2 days out of O'side, you shoulda left the trollers in for that last 5 miles
Yeah, it's believed those Mexican snakes are coming here to take all the really good, high-paying jobs from the hard-working US of A sea snakes....
Looks like you should check out "Hooked on Phonics". Will really help w/your reading ability
"YTF"? Yellowtin Funa??
Now you're using your head for more than a hat rack!
What.!?! No pics of the parasites?
BS w/o pix
How long was that humpy? 12'-14'?
The fish. He asked for an ID
That's Joe. We went to high school together.
It's disturbing that you even noticed. Most of us look at the fish
So, Mike. Presumption here has to be that you are a deckhand on a cattleboat and the tips haven't been all that great? Sounds like there might be...
That's what works! I've got two this way this year.
Yeah, be aware that having any sea turtle on your vessel is a state law violation AND a felony under federal law. You were technically (and...
What is this "struper" you speak of? Is it related to the Fartcastic Skringehead?
How many times were you dropped on the head in the delivery room? Or is it just that Fetal Alcohol Syndrome......
Harmless to divers, even the big ones (sharks, not divers). I've been in the water with 'em many times in Baja and a few times around here.
Medialuna californiensis aka "Halfmoon"
Thunnus albacares for sure. Yellow anal fin.
Isurus oxyrinchus........and yes, I am an expert.
I'm gonna paint my speargun black and purple.
Nothing like a nice, relaxing day on the water!
Yumm! Make some gumbo!
I dunno......this thread seems pretty dick-ish.....
Click that link and you'll be sorry......
Golden Grouper! Sweet!
How can you accuse him of being a liberal? Oh wait....his name IS Clinton! I see it now...LOLLOLLOL
What puzzles me is: If the commercial catch is being cut 40%, why not the same for sportfishermen? A 6-fish limit would be 40% down from 10 fish....
Without a doubt....Sarcastic Fringehead...... whatever
Without ax doubt....Sarcastic Fringe
Was wondering how things looked out there. Thanks for info.
Love those shirts!
That a Pt. Wilson Dart? I have lots of other questions but don't think it's likely they'll get answered!
All? what? question? marks? Not? sure? I? know? what? you? mean!?!?!?
Dude! You could see that paddy from the Space Shuttle! Which is landing at Montgomery Field today, by the way.
Oh yeah! I almost forgot! LOL!!!
Yep! Sebastes auriculatus - Brown RF. The brown spot on the gill cover is the giveaway. Don't feel impotent on ID'ing rockfish. I know biologists...
To paraphrase an old pilot's saying, "It's always better to be on shore wishing you were out there, than out there wishing you were on shore!"
Hey Austy, is that a Bimini softtop on ur boat? With isin connected to windshield? If so, am looking for same. Recommendations?
Nice yellow !! You should use more exclamation points in your reports !!! LOL
(Just effin' w/ya !!!!!!)
I didn't see the show but your description said it pretty well. Given that those big makos are generally the females, they took out more than just...
I'm worn out!
Sea temp was 63.5 all AM, all over. No breaks.
Did morning run out 15 mi. or so toward 181 then looped north. Saw several decent-sized patties. No yellows, no bait, no molas, no nothin! No...
I use a big long-shank hook w/barb pinched shut, tie a 5 or 6-oz. weight to the eye of said hook. Tie reel line to the bend of the hook. To lower...
Pound for pound the hardest fighting fish in our local waters. YOU'RE the one who's hooked now! Congrats.
Proof of the old adage: "Most lures are designed to catch fishermen!"
Back to the thread. I caught an 11' (released, weight unknown) white...
You'll shoot your eye out!........LOL
"Nice! Where did you get the matching bonita shirt?"
Hog cabby! I speared one once about that size and he had 3 little lobsters in his stomach. No wonder they taste so good!
Most helpful! Thanks!
Thanks! Plan is to head n. out of o'side. Hit a few reefs looking for yt's. Any idea how deep he was fishing? Iron or bait?
Thinking of prowling the sea tomorrow, anywhere from San Ono to Encinitas. Looking for any fish updates from you weekndrs. While I understand that...
From everything I've read, and years as a marine biologist, only 10% of California Halibut have eyes on the right side. Yet here you've landed 4...
Last time a cattle boat poached my paddie, I pulled the whole paddie up on to my swim-step and the back end of my boat with a boathook and drove...
