Nice! I figured some better weather and 300 less boats and they’d turn back on.
Bring them all down to the next tackle swap meet, and trade for your reel. Might have to toss in a couple more cheap rods or like $40, but getting...
Braid on a newel seems dumb. You have the capacity for mono, use it. Braid is good for adding capacity when you have none, cutting through kelp,...
I freeze all my scraps and toss in the can on trash day. Never thought about bringing it on the next trip.
It’s your charter do what you want. I don’t see any problem bringing a trolling setup on a charter trip.
Yeah, haven’t been out a while and needed some action. The boats filed up quick and I knew it was gonna be a battle. There were some epic tangles.
Sorry for the late report. Hopped on the Belle Saturday with my Brother and a buddy. Conditions were rough, heavy wind chop. Current...
Nice red! Looks like Jackpot too boost. What did it bite on?
Some still to be found. Just picked up another Black Steel G 270-8 for $159.
Going out tomorrow, hopefully it keeps up!
Thanks for the report.
I get enjoyment out of anyone catching a fish, and often congratulate people on a nice catch..................... as long as they aren’t a douche.
Pinheads, Black Steels and Calstars were all on clearance about 2 months ago at all Turners. Picked up a Black Steel for like $169, and Greenie...
Remember most people don't post their poor/average trips only the good ones. So not everyone is killing it.
Not a fan of crew fishing. Hook and hands are a different story. But watching counts and reading reports I see it too much.
Deckhands get to...
Nicely done. What’s the rating on that pinhead?
How was the pursuit?
How do you catch and release a thresher from a pier?
For trout I use treble hooks, size 16-18. Just enough bait to completely cover the hook. I prefer 4lb main line and 2lb fluorocarbon leader....
Make sure your line is nice and tight on the spool, also try getting the line wet before the first cast, couple drips from the bait tank works for...
Damn, my arms hurt just thinking of two 50 lb yellows. Nicely done and thank for the report.
I like the idea. As mentioned, they look like a better answer to a rubber core.
I've been using the Calcutta Explorer XL rolling bag and it's ok. Design is stupid, puts to much stress on cheaply sewn seams. Carry handle puts...
That's way cool of them. I wish someone would return my Shimano Jacket that was taken while on the Native Sun a few weeks back.
Glad to hear about...
Thanks for the report. Sounds like I need to try dead sticking a cedar plug sometime.
Are there Chovies on board? If so all the snacks you want just swimming in the bait tank.
Not sure where you are located but Fisherman's Access in Brea, has the above mentioned rod on sale for $129 (deckhand grip), or a Black Diamond...
So the pellet guns I see all the time are a NO GO? Or is lead cool?
Who's to say that fish didn't just swim into the harbor?
But yes, i'd eat it. Not for every meal, but once in a while should be fine.
Thanks for the info. Hopefully they hooked him up with a free pass for the day. (even though not landings fault)
Bringing up another story, I...
Great report, looks like awesome fishing with the family. Smiling wife, elated kids, happy friend, fish on the table, sounds like a trip of...
Search the reports forum for slayday. A view reports within the last month.
Reel might be ok for Rockfish. Depends on the cranking power, rod is too light though. Could be a nice live bait rod, but you're not going to be...
I love some music on board, just not Mexican foompa music.
I'm not condoning this behavior, just listing an option.
Just tip less?
Wow, what sportsman. Way to go team Bastardos!
Read in another thread that someone got robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot across from 22nd street.
Had a shimano jacket come up missing a few weeks ago on the Native.
Hell, I bring 5 rods on an All Day, and I’d like to bring more.
My bad, i figured they made one for the Tranx 300, i have mine on a lexa 400.
Tiberon, been using one for a Lexa 400 and it’s been great.
I’m a cheap bastard, I rinse and reuse my hooks, any rust or nick and they get trashed.
Nothing ruins a nice day on the water faster than launch ramp hysteria.
Mono topshot to ensure you're not "that guy" that has everyone yelling "whose damn braid is this!"
That's awesome. Very cool to share some of your catch.
Watched a kid do that a few weeks ago. Was really trying to muscle it and it snagged and pulled right out his hands.
Slayday rentals are only $550 this month during the week. Seems like a great price.
You won’t find me complaining.
My advice would be to watch the landing reservations and fish counts for a few days beforehand. Look at what they are catching and base your...
Pursuit is going after surface fish this time of year. Maybe an hour or two of rock fishing if conditions are terrible. Check out Redondo...
Fake fish counts and over crowded. Used to love the Native Sun, now it’s a last resort.
Cool little project looks great. I use to do similar projects every summer during college. Pick up a cheap little aluminum, fix it up for the...
Needed a couple Avet MXJ's, so I took a little road trip yesterday. Lots of AVET blems, but only a couple G2's. Probably 98% originals. Ended up...
Tortured data will always confess.
You guys are aware this is a 9 year old thread right?
Oh, and Montefeltro is you have the $$$ or A300 if not.
That’s awesome, thanks for the report.
Another vote for three turn surgeon, been using it since last August and hasn’t failed yet.
Sorry I recently renewed my passport, and have been wanting to get down to the Nados.
Fishing always shuts off when I’m ready.
Maybe a calico bass set up. Lexa 300/400. For tossing swimbaits and small Snipers/mega baits.
Edit. I'm an idiot, missed the first setup.
That’s awesome. My favorite part is the breakfast burrito part, plain old hilarious.
Don’t forget to save those pics and mount them up!
Thanks for the great report and pics. I bet he is still talking about it. Nothing like the pull of a real fish.
For Trout I have almost always used 4lb main line, IZOR XXX and 2lb Berkeley Vanish for leader material. Never had a problem floating bait. I run...
Yup, lots of rays in the surf zone right now. Be careful, even seen a few only inches from shore.
Sorry for your loss.
Sorry for the loss of your friend. Looked like a heck of a fisherman.
That sucks, 89 people is crazy. Not even fun. Went out Saturday on the Sportking with 40 and that was a mad house. Smaller boat though. Didn’t...
Oops just liked a 12 year old report.
Maybe a reach around?
Something made in America
With no crowds my order of preference would be :
Liberty or The San Diego, then Grande, and Mission Belle
The San Diego, is great but slightly...
Looks like they had a great time, good job.
SX G2 6/4
It's broke, I'll give you $200 for it.
Good boat for filling up the sack with the usual Catalina offerings (perch, whitefish, and sheepshead) they don't seem to get into the exotics as...
If you’re on a party boat, make sure to bounce them wildly over the rail and into any nearby people.
Thanks for letting me know they support hookup baits, now I know not to listen, eff those poacher sex toys.
Sorry for the loss of your friend. RIP, prayers and best wishes for his family and friends.
I’ve won a half dozen or so JP’s. Usually will trade the $ for a free pass. Did this two weeks ago. If it’s a boat I never plan to ride again,...
Try out Aguila "Super Colibri's" no powder only primer. So quiet I would shoot them in the garage.
Cousins 7’8” 25-40 to use as a 30lb stick.
Wanted a AVET G2 mxj but only deal I found was on a Neptune’s Heart version and it was too ugly paired...
Thanks for all the answers guys. I’m ready to catch my first ling, hopefully I can get a blue one! That’s all I’ve wanted the last few rockfish...
Not sure how serious? I’m sure they don’t boil on the surface but should I bring my bass set up for shallow water rockfish? Is that a thing up...
Just got a call from Virg's Landing regarding a free 2 day trip, I’d won in a raffle at Fred Hall, woot woot!
Never been up that way, what time...
Chasebait squids and the savage gear squids look pretty awesome.
Avalon says rain and a high of 51° for Thursday. If it were me I’d pass, but it don’t take much for me to pass on the Pursuit.
Yeah, they clipped the spines and it went south fast, lol.
Went out Saturday with my brother and a work friend of his. Was expecting a new captain, but he no showed and we were treated with Bruce back at...
When you have your own boat you can think like that. When you're on a packed boat and have sacks of Sculpin that you don't want to kick, toes that...
I use a pair of the boogie bombs for work and they are great. Could be a tad wider for my day face, but they work. Anzi 87.1 approved too.
Make sure to to get something with a lower gear ratio, preferably under 5:1 as it will help cranking up heavy weights.
I have been fishing the...
Tagged, thanks OP
The tall extratuffs are better for wide feet shorties have a narrow fit.
Boots are a must.
Nice looking fish. What’s been your set up? Line weight? Etc.
Yup, wish I never sold my last boat. Told myself don’t do it until you have a new one. That was over a year and a half ago, and I’m still looking...
Nice, I was looking for a G2 MXJ Single speed at Fred Hall but no one had one for a good price and in stock. SDTT has one but in the Neptunes...
Went out on the Native Sun on Saturday. Sloppy conditions, but not bad. Squid strips and deans. Fished out past the double rigs,...
RIP, sorry for the loss of your friend.
With no birds working I get about 80-100 yards, during a foamer about 25 feet.
I read in WON he had heart surgery earlier this month. He left a Terrence's website recording yesterday and sounded fine. Probably taking a short break to...
No experience but, a slight inconvenience v.s. getting harrassed in Mexico is a no brainer.
But I havn't been fishing in two months!!! Well, one sculpin trip, but still! I need to get out!
There is a couple others boata, like Daveyslocker, and one other, but most snowflakes can't handle the captain's off color broadcasting. And since...
Agree. I figured they will catch 3 yellows with 75 people on board, which equals 1 in 25. I should have put 3 in 75.
Very nice of you. Mounts look great too.
One of the more fishy boats in the area, but too many people for me. I'm not into combat fishing for a 1 in 25 chance at a yellow.
Make sure you have a fresh mono topshot, smooth line casts further, and has less drag on a bait.
Also toss your bait where the crew is chumming....
Went yesterday, show was $15 per ticket. Should have been free or $5. Not worth the $15. It was like one row of Fred Hall.
Pelagic had some...
Blem AVET SX g2 from Turdners, Caivo Jigs, Ringed owner propacks, and whatever used rods I can't live without from San Diego Tackle Traders....
Felt one last year at Fred Hall, they were practically giving them away. Felt like a big pile of dog poo.
Never been to San Diego Fred Hall, but I would advise going on Friday when they open, tried this last year, and I'll never go on the weekend...
If I told you, I’d have to kill you.
Very cool, I know the Ponds at the California Disneyland are loaded with catfish. Next time you're in front of the castle toss some popcorn into...
Not sure what you would eat on them. Tails are near non existent, claws like toothpicks.
As season predictions go, I'm thinking ALBACORE!!!!...
Look into the Plano molded stowaway rack-
Might be just what you need and could fit right into the Nomad, was going to try this on...
As mentioned I'd pick up a 20-25 lb setup. I fish my 25lb rig (8 ft Teramar with a Aver SX 2 speed) most often on 1/2 to overnight trips.
Seeker American Series 870-7. Still have it 16 or so years later.
I set up a 15lb spinner rig, didn't like it, very hard to keep in contact with live bait. As mentioned great for poppers or stick baits. Love them...
20-50 yard mono topshot gets replaced almost every trip. Braid every 2-5 years depending on when it gets low, or damaged.
As mentioned mono is...
Bought these to use as safety glasses at work, I like them.
Reminds me of my first boat i got at 16. No tags, no registration, no title $500 bucks and i was off. To bad the city towed it from in front of my...
Thanks for the report.
That was one of my initial thoughts. Some of the bags looked new too.
No, not isopods. I've seen those. Also I picked one up to feel it. Looked like a peanut with no shell, split in half. Definitely a nut of some...
I thought that too, but it wasn't the shells, just the nuts.
Went out on Saturday for some local sculpin, and by the days end there was what looked like peanuts all over the fish in my sack.
I love fishing that lagoon too. Started fishing it as a kid on Vacations to Carlsbad, still love the area today.
I see most don't understand the meaning behind the second amendment. Nor do they understand unintended consequences.
Yum, seaducks! And people here are afraid of a lil Skippy!
Looks like a great shoot, congrats.
What’s the project ? Dredging? Sucks to loose 1000 legal halibut. That’s a lot for one area.
I hate thieves, I hope they get their ass handed to them. I'm still bitter over my bike, duck blind bag and fishing gear stolen last year.
Wow, look at all those Blue wing! That's awesome, nice work on the band too.
So how many, is too many rods for a half-day?
Yeah!! Go Bruce!! Sportking is the s***! Too bad the weather is going to kill it this weekend.
I've always wondered about using electric modes of transport to and from the blind. I know gas powered is a no go. But after looking at your rig,...
8 foot rods rated 15-40.
Another trick it to extend the handles long enough so you can pull it like a rickshaw. Game changer.
Nice. A couple good pintails can make it all worth it. I skipped out on Saturday, didn’t want to deal with the mud.
All I know is I hate when a deckhand removes my hook with dikes! owner hooks aren't cheap.
Nothing fantastic but getting better than 1.1 birds and below averages. 1.8 for overall.
Had a draw for Wister today, and it seems a few more...
Kid looks like a seasoned pro. Way to go.
Frame these pics, Fishing and surfing with my dad are some of my best memories.
Don't forget to stretch. Most people forget about this once the PE teacher isn't there to make them.
Sounds like a sweet way to lose some weight. Eat all I want, lose weight, have a hot doctor play with my butt, win-win.
Turners has them for $299 in the Holiday Catalog.
If I was fishing North of Point Conception or on an overnight boat fishing SoCal I’d do what was said above. But the fish are smaller and in...
Yes, Best luck with the white versions too.
I buy the pLine ones, but usually just use the flies and tie my own. I prefer a ball bearing swivel, lighter line and longer traces on the...
Lots of assumption going on here.
He shot over limit!, What did he do with the extra?
You should have called the DFG on this asshat.
Little thing called due process.
What length and line rating ?
Why is it always red or yellow spectra guys that cause all the problems? Do they sell that line at Walmart or something?
Sometimes coots are just asking for it.
Rigged one up with assist hooks on the top, and took off the treble. Will be trying it out this upcoming season.
I think they are fishing offshore vs the island. If you have cash book a spot on a six pack, they can go fast and get you further out. Also...
Handled one at The Longfin on Sunday, felt like a big turd.
But I'm not an Accurate Fan, They look like Duncan YoYo's.
Frame that pic. Thanks for the update.
Thanks for the repor, I wish that boat would run more All Days, what size were the Skippies and what did the halibut bite on?
Go to a Turners and see if they have any old stock grey body Lexa’s. Might be able to buy one for the original $99 close out price from last yearI...
65’ boat that is old and slow but clean with decently wide rails. For sure nothing fancy. But the captain is fishy and super entertaining. Must...
WRONG DATE - SATURDAY 10-27
With a few yellows in the counts and reports of live squid decided to hope on the Sportking this morning.
Go shoot some ducks and eat a couple Spoonies, next Skippy you eat will taste like filet mignon.
Yes, looks like the fish are on the move south. One bummer, was the great crew, I guess it's their last season and they will have new crew...
With my shooting I’ll be sending them right back, we can ping pong them back and forth.
Looks like weather is starting earlier this year, should lead to more ducks heading this way, or at least i’m hoping.
Nicely done. With no draw and limited blinds I skipped the opener and went fishing. Buddies tried the waistline but with no. 63 they didn't get...
When starting out make sure to crank down the spool tensioner, on free spool the lure should fall about 2 feet per second, you want it slow, this...
Thanks for the report, how are the bunks on the tribute?
Shimano Teramar 8 ft 20-50 mono rating or similar Proteus, or if you can afford It a Calstar Graphiter.
Yes, nothing kills a bite faster than me booking a trip.
With no draws I skipped Duck Opener to chase some local YFT and Skippies.
Origninally booked the Chief, but they cancelled for the second week in...
Rockfish Rig and 25lb flyline are kind of opposing features, I'd buy two setups.
Rockfish : used rod rated 20-40, graphite and stiff, Penn...
When getting picked clean by little fish, try using a gulp product as bait such as the squirts or grubs on one hook. Smaller fish avoid them. I...
Tagged for interest.
I've found most of the damage on the snipers is from bouncing fish. Have two that are bent and losing paint.
I have dreamt about catching many fish in the gutters and turns out the grass in my backyard is loaded!!!
Looks like an awesome time. Something they will remember forever. Awesome job, I bet those boys hoots and hollers was worth priceless.
Anyone have a good picture of the weather for Saturday? Thinking of jumping on an overnight Friday night or all day Saturday but saw some rain in...
Yes, check local landing counts. 1/2 day boats getting them.
Looks like I’m mistaken, they on the shoe.
Go down the street to Pacific Coast bait and tackle, pick up some live bloodworms. Try the lagoons in Carlsbad at Tamarack street, off the beaches...
Dan Hernandez does kids charities and has tackle swap meets, they may take it to sell for the kids.
Where are you located and what are the ratings on the rod?
You ever make j style keel grabber weights?
Sounds like a shitty situation for all parties involved. If the OP story is sound, I’d like to see an apology from the cap.
Yes, I wish they did more limited load offshore boats. I'd book them for sure. But as someone who gets out every other weekend, it's hard to find...
Yea, especially off shore fishing with everyone on one side of the boat, not even enough room for 55 guys on one side.
Heard lots of people...
Oops, meant the 29th.
Short of it : Rough day with 55 people aboard the boat.
Ended with 2 skippys. Lost three yellowfin. One fish...
Were you using fluorocarbon leaders? And were all fish on the 20lb setup?
Guy on the Mustang two weeks ago, felt sick went to lie down, and vomit all over the bunch room.
Just remember when you find a good deckhand, tip them, and let them know why.
Yes, as much as I'd like to love this combo, spent $50 on a Tiburon Mount, it is too heavy and tiring to fish all day.
Sounds like a fun day. Nicely done.
I have a 400 that I’ve been trying on a 280h and a seeker Pinhead 1580 both rated (15-40). It tosses jigs great, but it doesn’t balance well. The...
They can cast a heavy jig well, live bait would be difficult on the levelwind models, but I have them set up strictly for rockfish. Retrieve on...
Fathom 25 Levelwind and a used graphite rod rated 20-50. I have an older Tallus and a Seeker Stealth that fit the bill perfectly. Fathom over...
Ate my first Skippy yesterday, not fantastic but very edible, no more fishy than rainbow trout.
Jumped aboard the Mustang out of H&M yesterday. Headed about 30 miles south and met up with the fleet, first few paddies empty, then we...
Maybe a Garcia Pro Max combo, $80 with a discount code from eBay.
Thanks awesome. Best of luck to your dad, and to getting some dove action.
Any interest in a Calstar BWC 270-8, with brand new X Wrap and New cork underneath?
Since no reports posted I’ll share my experience.
Went down to the IV last week, scouted in Friday and found some decent fields, nothing great....
Reminds me of once when A broken down truck led to me and a buddy carrying our 13' aluminum from the launch ramp to the parking lot by hand, in...
Release, and if it's a jackpot fish it goes in the bait tank, then released. Learned that from jigslingers trip on the Redondo Special.
I will look it up, tried out the 3 turn surgeons and that knot is simple!
Yeah, it was the only boat available other than some half days, and since I can't go this weekend, I went. I have my fav boats, but they are...
A full moon can turn a bad bite good and a good bite bad.
Double Uni , Not the strongest knot, but I’ve never ran into trouble with it. Time to change I guess. But , I’m putting my money on me tying a...
Went out of Oceanside Seacenter on the Blue Horizon, all day boat. Trolled around all day, only found 4 patties, no love on the troll. All patties...
Probably found that guys gear from MDR.
Also some decent calico fishing outside of Crystal Cove.
Blue label gross!!!
Anything with a levelwind will not cast light baits as far a something without.
Lexa, Tranx, Komodo all easy to use and cast but not as good for...
Thanks for the report and pics, looks like a great time.
My rule for Euros is once I miss, I'm done. With so many birds out there why take bad shots.
Even bigger swell coming in about a week, double overhead at the beaches. Should bring warm water, big kelps, and more fish up our way.
Or release an study showing that sea lion meat gives you a boner, Asians will fish them out in weeks.
Anyone ever try playing Orca Whale recordings in the water?
Wow, that spread looks amazing. I need to step up my fish cooking game.
Were you on private boat? Or Party?
What? No, it was in the brine pretty quick, I would have though. Also, I thought that was only for yellowtail?
I'll try to make it up next time:...
Yeah, he jumped a few times, awesome to see them under the paddies too.
Thanks, grilled some up yesterday and it was excellent. Some of the...
Thanks, 40 people on the boat, half rent rods.
Took my first trip out of San Diego on Saturday. Hoped aboard the Malihini out of H an M Landing. Boarded at 5:15 and left dock around...
55 Person Limited Load is a joke.
But if you are going to fish Newport/Davey's use COUPON CODE FISH20OFF for $20 off.
Two dodos on one jig? I can barely catch two Macs on one sabiki.
A jig head with an underspin will sink slower, allowing for a heavier weight.
I've ran into groups of halibut when surf fishing, lots of shorts but keep at it the big girls are nearby.
according to Bruce on the sport king, it has been about 50 50 for the yellows. Half on squid, half on sardines. 20 to 25 lb fluoro also.
Thanks for the info, I'll have to give it a try.
Also OP, look into Slay Day Rentals, good rates but you're the captain.
Also since your in San Diego, check out San Diego Tackle Traders, best used gear selection around.
If he can handle the conventional then maybe a Penn Fathom 25n on a used 's Calstar or Seeker 270-8, or 870 if more comfortable with 7 foot over...
I was looking into that, being a new member though I don't want to step on any toes or take advantage of something I haven't earned, if that makes...
Tagged for interest. Being a weekend warrior that can't get on any boats due to charters, this may be my only option, or buy a boat.
Most pics of fish suck, and they look way smaller than in person, doing this helps with picture quality. Sometimes they take it a little too far...
Thank you, really enjoy these webinars.
8'6" Shimano Clarus Medium Heavy. I use a ML version but cast small grubs for perch on occasion, if I was only tossing Lucky Crafts I'd go with...
Nice sized Spanish, ceviche!
Reminds me of the old school days rockfishing, 5 lbs of weight and 50 pounds of fish, you could barely turn those handles.
ThAt is a beast!!! Frame those pics!
J braid cuz I'm cheap!
Stop talking like this or else I'm gonna have to go chase bluefin and buy more gear.
Wouldn't it keep your gear really hot? I'm thinking melted plastics and such.
In California you would probably be fined for fishing spots like that.
I need these
Sounds dumb, I'd continue to use the 75 yard top shot, until the braid needs replacing then fill it all the way.
13 people on board sounds like a dream.
Thanks for the report and great pics

Looking to get out saturday, but crowd's and a change in...
Wow, the colors on that dodo are amazing.
Went out Saturday on the Enterprise, limits of Sculpin for the boat in short order, out near the second set of rigs. Them came back inside to...
Just bought two JX Raptor's, one had a bad bearing. Emailed AVET and no response. Second AVET I bought that had issues from the get go.
Just leave it on the bottom? I’ve only caught a few small sculpin so far on Ed’s jigs.
What’s your technique when fishing Ed’s jigs?
I love a good local 3/4 day, lots of fishing time is great.
Thanks for the report, was Bruce as entertaining as always?
I wouldn't know what to eat first!
They don't really stretch but they do loosen u a lot. Punch and bend/twist them up when you get them.
Since OP has no pics , here is one of something you don’t see everyday fishing.
Brings to mind something my uncle told my about halibut, when you get a nice one you'll think you snagged an old beach towel.

Ed’s jigs or 100 gram colt Snipers (if conditions allow)

Sell/trade all 100 for like 10 brand New jigs.

Blue perch are ok, a million times better than Surf Perch, Opaleye is the best perch imho.
Pursuit is a great boat, best all day boat around here. My only gripe is that boat is SLOW. Also usually too many people, 75 people max really?...
Good report. Looks great with so few people on the boat.
So true. Conditions looked great leaving the island Saturday afternoon (Went on Native Sun). Then Pursuit had 30 yellows on Sunday. Crappy weather...
Should you have been casting from those positions anyway? Looked like you were casting right over people.
