That’s a clean one. GLWS
Don’t gaff yourself while your cleaning up the blood.
Bloodydecks for sure.
You were too close but throwing a jig could be illegal.
Are you fishing with the boat in gear?
People love to criticize others for their techniques. Sometimes light line is the answer.
Super Mutus seem kinda thick when the Bluefin are touchy.
At least these guys landed their fish.
Biggest fish I’ve seen caught on a Sea Ray.
Art nailed em.
I hear you, I had the same thing happen in Puerto Vallarta. My option was to move to the back and get soaked or hurt my back a little. I didn’t...
Be careful on that Punta Eugenia panga ride. My friend broke his back on that trip just last month. They must drive those pangas hard into the swell.
Looks like fun.
El Gato Dos out of Seaforth got 10 yft and 2 bft for 6 people. Maybe they fished there.
Both fish look nice.
My name is Doug Nance and I contacted you last year about Yakutat. Did you just go? How was the fishing?

Fishing in the future.
I caught my first wahoo at Ceralvo island about 40 years ago on a green and yellow crocodile.
Desperate fisherman with little experience.
And a big Halibut.
I’ve been watching the counts and the Belle has been killing them lately. The fishing has slowed down. BTW the Mission Belle is out of Point Loma...

Just ask a cab driver to take you to the bus station from the border. Ask how much before entering the cab.
The bus is safe and I’m sure you can bring enough gear for your trip. You can take a cab from the bus station to the bay where the boats are....
I have used electro-mates for years. They are bullet proof with no problems.
Crazy looking fishing. Never seen one. Been on tons of LR trips.
15 percent. Depending on service. 12 hour trips cost about $175 bucks.
San Clemente or Catalina Island. Tell the wife you need a bigger boat to stay safe in US waters.
How about grass?
Bruce always makes things interesting
Very cool, and close to shore.
When you post the same pictures 3 or 4 times it makes it look like you caught a lot of fish.
What blank number is the pacificstick?
My guess is Stella reel.
Game Changer out of Point Loma Sportfishing.
Looks like a nice boat, might be worth staying up for 2 days.
You forgot the lines. That’s the only way I can stay up all night.
Must stay up all Friday night while I sleep.
By the beer.
Better have some boating skills if your gonna let him drive your boat all night. Even the professionals are having some issues.

I saw 2 different Daiwa SP minnows on Amazon. Sinking and floating.

This must be a new trip. I don’t see it on the calendar. The fish were biting good yesterday.
I’ve paid my dues, now I just wanna catch fish.
The difference is one guy is in a boat and the other people are swimming. I’d be a lot more afraid of swimming at a beach then taking a picture...
Foot long yellowtail. That’s pretty small. I’ve seen them as small as 3 inches. Had to net those in the lights at night. I’ve caught some foot...
I believe it says 25 and 30 lb. line for quality fish.
40 lb. flouro carbon, 2 speed reel, a lively bait, a 1/0 circle hook and you should be good.
Good to hear.
I read a report that someone rented a boat from Carefree Boat Club and drifted near the Liberty. This could be the same guy.
Definitely not cool. But I have been poached by Sportboats more than once.
Get me one bro.
I have used Newell’s for years for yft’s and bft’s up to 100 lbs. They were great bait and jig reels. However I did strip out a couple of gears on...
Put it on a Traeger with Fin and Feather Rub. I heard they cook it with soy sauce and sugar at Japanese restaurants.
I’m sure Mike will show you his. If you ask nicely.
If you have anew in box JX for $200, I’ll take it. These are excellent reels and I just caught 4-70lb bluefin on one.
200 pounder on 50 in a hour. Try that with YFT. I’m sure they both fight hard. Nice catch.
Check the Red Rooster report they are there right now.
Contact that Nathan Gunther guy. He says he has opening this week.
You mean Danny? U before E.
Any shipping on Talica?
I am interested in getting a fathom 15nld Let me know if you have one available. Thanks Doug
Someone caught a fish on a Flatfall on my recent trip on the Outer Limits. So there’s a chance.
[ATTACH] Tuna like them too.
I had a similar experience, he likes to ride novices. Plenty of good captains with people skills in Cabo to put up with that s—-.
Do they have the same owners?
I have a couple of these too. Wonder if I can get 59 bucks for it.
I don’t think this is a Makonakee, they sold those at Squidco. They do get bit. I have a couple myself. I have a Makonakee and will post a...
[ATTACH] Nice Fish.
I used 80 lb. Maxima at Clarion and caught a 314 lb. yft. Single speed reel.
Please don’t PM me with all that profanity . I’m done thanks.
OK I will accept your apology. But still feel you are naive and must not live in the city not to know that word is inappropriate. A little more...
This is naive and bs. Get a clue. Don’t use it unless you are Japanese.
Not Cracker brands: Johnson, Evinrude or Mercury?
I caught a 314 pound yft on my first long range trip in 82. Don’t let it indimidate you that it’s a long trip. The crew will be there to assist.
I caught a 314 pound tuna and have seen many pictures of them since I caught mine in 82’ on a single speed. The big one Is impressive and over 400...

That Ling Cod is gonna cost him.
I caught a 314 lb. yft with this knot using mono in the 80’s.
I fish in San Diego and troll the Halcos. Do you throw them out at night and retrieve? What l pound test ? Thanks
So the Royal Star can fish in their chumline?
I heard it’s harder to do when there a fast drift. I guess, the unweighted skippies wouldn’t get down to the zone.
Butch Brown is having a good trip. 338 lb. YFT, 292 lb. YFT and a 248 lb. YFT
I’ll take the 250 lb. with stumpy sickles.
Has some long fins too.
Congrats on the Super. Any trip report? How many days? Did you catch any other fish?

We gave that boat the last of our bait in October at Corbetenia Rock. I was fishing with Captain Lora from Punta Mita.
A dog turd would taste about the same if you fried it. Love those those dog turd tacos.
I prefer tan Bank Perch but whose picky.
Yeah, Just ask Marciano, he was on the Royal Polaris catching wicked yellowfin tuna and wahoo.
[ATTACH] Nice trip to Corbetenia Rock. I was there a couple of months ago.
Nice fish, how does the guy with blue long sleeve shirt and blue hat see with sunglasses at night?
[ATTACH]8 hour trip from Punta Mita last month.
I was just ther last month. Stayed at Lindo Mar. Is Punta Negra south of there?
How much did it weigh?
Josh Temple used to fish in Puerto Vallarta.
I caught a 300 lber on a one speed. Go for it.
Those reels were 2 speeded by Penn not Cal Sheets. They may have drag upgrades. TW’s done by Cal. SW’s done by the factory (Penn). Just an FYI,...
My guide was using a Stella and our fish were between 25 lbs. and 90 lbs.
Mrkrabs goes fishing.:-)
[ATTACH]There’s a few sailfish around as well.
Sounds like some good rock fishing.
Those aren’t Yellowtail, they are Rainbow Runners.
[ATTACH] I was there couple days before the hurricane. We had a good trip too. Congrats.
Thanks guys, it was with a plate and harness. Rollo taught me how to do it. It was a long time ago but I did it.
Brings back old memories. That box was filled more than once.

That boat used to belong to my friend who passed away. RIP Bob. He bought it in San Diego and used it for many years fishing around San Diego. We...
Saw you out at the Rock last week. That boat looks good.
Was there last week and tuna bit all day, but the best bite for big fish was in the afternoon.
Offshore is better than inshore in November from what I’ve heard.
Punta Mita is worth the cab ride or bus ride. It saves 22 miles of Banderas Bay each way.
Should be a nice ride down in PV.
Caught these fish today from a panga from Punta Mita. We also caught a Sailfish (released).[ATTACH]
Yeah right, owned pangas for over 25 years and never been stopped. I live in San Diego.
I caught 700 Albies out of my panga in 4 years back in the 90’s. Maybe they were Bigeye. :smoking33:
Longfin Bigeye LOL They don’t catch Albies around here.
When fishing small fish with big bait, wait a little longer to engage your reel.
Steve and Ian are still working there? Bob was riding them pretty hard on my trip. LOL
I was on the trip before yours. We had one blow up on the kite. Yes Bob is character.
It was 2 years ago.
Wow. Really. Is this April 1st?

Nice ones. Good luck mañana.
I know they get them round the East Cape. Primarily on bait. Not to sure about jogging and popping. They do that in Puerta Vallarta.
Nice Catch. Which model of Mag Bay Lures do people use around Mag. Bay?

The week I go I have a trip planned on Monday with Fortuna and Friday with Dhamar. Double my chances.
I got the number. It was off by 1 number on the website.:(
Does anyone know how to contact Captain Lora of Fortuna Sportfishing? I contacted him on instant messaging about 3 months ago but don’t know how...
Nice catch Manny. Your killing it.
I used a SS6480H with 50 lb. max quatro spectra.
Nice Catch! Looks like a great day. Any tuna hitting lately?
Definitely can see it in this picture. Haven’t seen one of those in a while. Nice
I caught this on a Super Seeker 6480H. Rod was great.
United Composites makes some 7’6” rods that I like. For instance Viper, Centaur and Raptor.
Does anyone use the Nomads down at East Capr?
I’ve been thee twice since last October and both times I did not see a private boat.
Which one Phats?
It’s hard to believe that boats would go there without the proper paperwork but I guess people have bigger ones than I have.
Do you have a picture of the big boat?
Something used to validate a date.:-) Nothing to do with news.
Thanks for the mammaries.
It looks like a great day. I fished a 2 day trip last week with Joel on the Legend and we threw back and broke off a ton of Skipjack. I kept...
o_OI like 7’6” rods.
It’s not the big one because this is.
That’s why there are very few posts these days. Everyone criticizes everything you post or they know more than you do.
The day before I went the boat caught a bunch of Big-eye.
I’ve won the JP with a Skippy. Only 2 were caught, one on troll and mine on bait. Back in the 70’s on the old Producer.
I remember when people would leave the skipjack in the box at the landing. I used to can it. Like someone said it is chunk lite tuna.
So do I, no need for a T-top.
I’ve done it out at PL kelp. All they had was anchovys at the barge. All the LR boats were doing it. Had to get your rod and sabiki ready right away.
You asked. Just sayin.
Cool trip but not Baja.
Where is the best place to buy assist hooks and what is the best brand?
Those look like they swim backwards with the eye near the hook. They look great and I’m sure they kill them.
[ATTACH] Captain Potato Head Memorial is under way 2108. Also known as Dick Uranga of Iron Man Lures.
Anyone remember the Albacore caught off Clarion? Or the Albies they were catching off Cabo?
Unfortunately he is retiring in the next year or so. But he said he will will be a fill in. Kenny knows his stuff.
And a newspaper.
Captain Kenny Merrill, used to run the Baja Dream. He has known Art Taylor for 40 years or more.
I still have a bunch of these. They work great and in certain cases will outfish the x-rap. However, they do not stay in tune as good an x-rap.
[ATTACH] Will you change my prop?
What did he produce?
Should have spelled it like me:-)
I thought it was Zane Grey.
Don’t forget about Greg Trompas senior. He caught a lot of Bluefin down there.
I caught a 314 lb. yft on my first long range trip. Smelled right to me. 8-)
I was on the Jigstrike the other day. They are the ones that caught 29 wahoo at the Coronado Islands. They said they thought those fish came from...
This fish was caught on a Lexa 400.
All you need is an Intruder. And another trolling rotation.
Nice. Nomad lures? I can see it written on the one with a hook near it’s eye. That one could be be a Madscad.
They are just showing up now and will leave in November. Sharks that is.
Bigeye will eat the gaff when they are hungry.
Before the sharks arrive at Guadalupe or after they leave.
First time I’ve heard of a skippers mom protecting him on Bloodydecks.LOL Times have changed.
Huh? Dana Wharf, I think it says Dana Landing. Last time I checked that is in Mission Bay.:smoking33:
I think your wrong. If he’s elderly like me, he won’t remember in a few weeks.
Give the original poster and his bud a free trip to make up for his bad trip. Oh yeah, everyone would whine that he’s a deadhead. LOL Maybe he...
With all the new regulations we are lucky to be able to fish there at all. If it were up to the Shark enthusiasts we would be given the boot....
Jap heads (oops not suppose to say that)
Then go on the Intrepid, they don’t have permits.
I understand, I was just at the Lupe last week. I have been on 5 day trips in US waters. I prefer Mexican waters.
Why wouldn’t they go there? They have the permits. Unless the fishing better down below or someone doesn’t have a passport.
That includes the Lupe.
Yup, like I said the Tranx 500 costs twice as much as much as the Lexa 400. I like the Tranx though because it holds more line. The Lexa had nice...
This is probably true,but isn’t the a Lexa like half the price? It’s a very good reel for the price.
People are using anywhere from 30 lb. to 80 lb. and it all seems to be working depending on bite.
Caught this last week on a Lexa 400 HP. Lexa all the way.[ATTACH]
There have been fish up to 170 lbs. I wouldn’t fish 25 lb. I recommend a popper rig.
Good reel. Caught this on one last week. Couldn’t have made the long cast without it.[ATTACH]
I’ve see it for sale at Sprouts.
I was told the same thing last year by another boat.
Looks like a couple of old Legend captains are back to sportfishing in San Diego this season. Shawn Trowbridge is on the Searcher. Good to see...

Dhamar Sportfishing. Heard great things about this guy. He has a website.
The Seaforth report says 30 BFT and 47 YT, some Barrie’s and Bass for 15 guys. Good trip. Hope to hear a first hand report.
Sounds like you have the right lures and tackle. Good luck and post if you catch something.

Great report. Does anyone know how to get the Apollo Reports? I have a couple of friends on the Western Outdoor News trip. They left on Memorial Day.
I’ve tied the perfection knot on knot 2 kinky without failure.
Not sure but I camped on Partida about 20 years ago and killed the yellows. Bummer if it’s true. I also went on Raza with some scientists from...
A clear coat should cover those battle scars.
I think Michael Bingham used run yachts and his brother used to run the International Star. Not sure how funny he is.
Was that between Partida and Raza Island? I camped on Partida about 20 years ago.
I’m glad I never made a mistake when I was kid.
Tim says he is bound by law to have 2 running generators on this trip.
How long of a trip is needed to go to Corbetena? How can I get in touch with Captain Lora. I am going to PV in October and want to charter a panga.
Congrats to you and your son:jig:Way to be a good dad. Eating the heart saves dinner money. Could have gone back for seconds.
Rollo tied some snelled hooks back in the early 80’s so it’s not really new or east coast.
Sounds like prison to me, i don’t want to stay behind some walls my whole vacation. My 2 cents
So when the wind blows from the West the fish must bite the best.
It is if they catch over 30 tuna over a hundred pounds. By the end of the trip it is limited because everyone is so tired.
So I guess your satisfied with no RSW. That’s not going to change like your underwear.
I use to drive there about 20 years ago. Not an easy drive. I have taken both routes. It is easier through El Arco but it is further South. This...

That’s pretty pricey for rubber but I lose wahoo jigs all the time. It’s part of the game.
[ATTACH] In Cabo, around the Marina they made this out of our wahoo. For 10 bucks a piece. They made it five different ways and was very tasty.
It’s just rubber, it looks like the tail can be replaced.
Stock TLD’s don’t put out enough drag for 80 and your rod is too light and will bottom out. Use boat gear if you can’t get a new setup. I just got...
I used the Centaur 76 last week and liked it. Had the Raptor in the rack.
How did the Raptor work with 80?
The specs. say it puts out the same drag as the Makaira. And has the same low gear ratio. I think it should work good.
Actually a good report. I was told not to do this for the future. BTW we used 80 and caught just as many.
My captain says they do and I want to go next year.
This thread is not good for future fishing at Guadalupe. Permits must be renewed annually. Please post more positive reports. I just returned...
No, look at the nose on the Vaquita. It’s different than other dolphins.
Only a few left. Almost extinct. That’s the difference.
I caught this in Cabo last week, you never know what your going to catch them on.[ATTACH]
I caught a 314 lb. yft at Clarion about 30 years ago on 80 lb. line and a 50 w single speed reel with no spectra.

Cheapest wahoo lure out there. 10 for a buck when on sale.
I don’t want a relationship with a dishonest crew. I would find a new boat. There are a lot of boats with good integrity out there so just pick one.
I caught this in front of my hotel last week in Cabo San Lucas. Congrats on the Blue Marlin. Nice catch![ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH]
Frank Lopreste says bluefin don’t fight as hard as yellowfin. And the ones at the Lupe are tough. So no comparison in my opinion.
Has anyone heard of another cow caught at the Lupe? Beside the ones that got away.
I think you would need chain and a winch.
The Searcher got a 205 lb. YFT at Guadalupe. Some boats are recommending 30 and 50 size reels at the Lupe.
Again? I was at Clarion over 10 years ago when they had an oil filter spin off and seize the engine. They had it repaired in Cabo but broke again...
Bahia de Los Angeles, look on a map. You can get there is one day from San Diego.
How do you fish with the yummy flier? Cast and retrieve?
I’m sure a cast net works good. I’ll have to give it a try.
Porpoise would take all the flying fish that came under the lights.
After being netted they survived just as well as the ones caught on hook and line. I was just scooping them. They were very skittish though, hard...
I used a net and netted a few tube mackerels at Clarion.:goldfish:

It's not a black skipjack?
It says not transferable.
You troll with Albacore Tuna, where do you get them?
When I first saw this boat the bunks looked like they were at an angle. Do these bunks work out well?
And I don't like fishing from 18 foot boat unless I'm in Baja so everyone has their preferences.
How do you locate this school? Bird school, jig strike, meter mark or kelp patty? Just curious, I'm going tomorrow.
They don't speak Engrish. That's a real Asian. Don't worry I'm Asian too and speak Engrish.
I got hit at Ranch 99 and they had footage but could not read the license. Damn Asian drivers. I'm half Japanese so I only drive half bad.

Like that tie:cool:
And 2 more on bait and 1 that got away.
I did catch one yesterday 821 feet from a tuna pen at the Nados on a Rapala so maybe they did get away.
Good quality for the boys.
Wouldn't hold off too long. The San Diego caught 49 today and the Liberty caught 40 plus yellowtail. Not a bad day of local fishing.
Do you guys carry your passport when fishing offshore (more than 12 miles from Islands)?
You caught a barracuda 12 miles out under a paddy, that's unusual.
How fast do most people troll and what type of clips do you use?
Nice first trip with quality and variety!
I have a charter with Renegade Mike in October. He was recommended by several Bloodydeckers. However I did get the last day available during my...
At Alijos Rocks they are catching wahoo, yellowtail, grouper and cow cod. Yes cow cod.
I'm staying off the water until they dock. Those guys are dangerous at sea. And I'm Japanese so they'll go after me for sure.
For a possible Blue Shark, no thanks.
Buy a Penn Fathom lever drag, a lot cheaper to go with the cheap boat.
If that's the biggest problem I have, it was a great trip. I'm not gonna let little things like that ruin my trip. It's normal.
I found the prices on Cruisers to be about the same and fair. I'm trying to contact Renegade Mike but no success via email yet. I'm not opposed...

I don't want to troll next to Jim.
The Excel didn't report the whole trip after the first day. They are already back and someone reported on this site but still not on the website.
I would be, I used a harness.
It's a safe boat. It won't sink.
I fished 80 lb. at Clarion and caught a 314 lb. YFT. I used no spectra, a 200 lb. monofilament leader, j hook and a single speed reel. It was...
:High_FiveI want to fish next to ya.
Sounds good to me. I was backing you up.There is always someone on this site that is gonna ask about size and/or limits.
Mine are starting to turn green. Think I have to wait a couple of more weeks.
Flatfalls are the way to go.
I believe it's 5 fish per species per day. They fished for 3 days. 4 people. 4x5x3 equals 60. I think they were ok.
I use to fish with him on the Legend. Fun guy to fish with.
I agree you did the right thing and disclosed it.
There's been several on here for good deals recently. Good luck on your search.
I thought the Old Glory has new ownership. I thought Joe sold it. Heard some rumors when they were taking it to Tanner for the big Bluefin. Maybe...
I don't have a problem with marking his tags with felt pens or somebody adding tie wraps on the tails.
But I do not like that he only sorts his...
I sold my boat to a first time boat owner. Here are some of his stories.
1) Ran out of gas on Rosecrans several times.. Fuel gauge didn't work on...
Sorrry wrong thread.
Cabo Pulmo used to be a great place to surf fish.
Jack Crevelle would boil up every morning at sunrise. There were also some big Cabrilla around...
The last response sucks. Go find your own spots with your meter or fish dope.
Remember when a girl caught an albacore off Clarion Island then went missing on the way to Cabo. I also remember when they were catching Albacore...
Only Franks boats will be able to fish Cedros.:banned:
lol. I know they used to run their own skiffs when whale watching and now they use Mexican...
It would be like golfing with one club.You need different line classes for different situations. It also depends on how finicky the fish are.
I was on that show, Rocks to Ridges on the Searcher. I liked that show.
I agree with the Taco Marine rub rails. I like the stainless steel hollow back rub rail. It is 3/4 " wide.
Just ask all the people enjoying a drink. The answer must be no.
There's probably so many fish there that the swivel doesn't matter. I don't like the idea under most conditions. I think it ruins the lures action.
Brian Kiyohara said the only reason you need sharp hooks for tuna is to stick it through the bait. I use Mustad hooks for wahoo bait fishing and...
How far out are the offshore reefs with the good fishing?
Partied with Eek A Mouse once. Actually had him in the front yard with a tuna harness on. He smoked all of our weed. I'm not kidding.:smoking33:...
So do you think all of your tuna weighed over a hundred pounds? If so that's a great trip.
Yeah but your Wahoodad. Everyone else needs glow in the dark.8-)
The bluefin like the glow better when they are feeding on Squid. Just ask all those people who were fishing the Tanner Bank the last couple of months.
I don't think anyone should recommend what you tip. That's up to you. I realize 15 percent is the minimum. It depends on service. The crew will...
Go to San Franciscito in Baja. You won't need a drone to catch a yellow from shore.
Hope he is a very good bubby.
Frank Lopreste said yellowfin fight much harder than bluefin.
The Tribute stayed out till 2:30 in the morning on a recent trip, then headed in with no surcharge.
Is this the one on I Wanna Be a Millionare that wouldn't connect to wifi on the Aztec?
It says O95 in the title. I think the Tribute and O95 are Ditmar Donaldsons.
Did any other boats get them? Is it a lottery or what's the deal?
Wasn't that Joel Ralston's boat? What happened to him?
Whichever one has live squid. Fished with Marcus when he was a pinhead on the Searcher, know he is a great skipper. The Old Glory has new owner...
Saw that boat down on the Ridge about 2 weeks ago. Doing some diving in wahoo infested waters.
Throw me some Aftco or Fishwork shorts.
Go out to Comsag Rock and catch some White Sea Bass and Sierra Mackeral.
I have one want to fish 80 at the Lupe.
I remember her. She sent me a bunch of pictures that she took when she retired.
Did you have to go full 28 lbs or was strike 22 lbs enough?
Lexa 400 HD
Was your HX a Raptor or was a regular one good enough for 80 lb. fluoro?
Some people I think use 7 turns and then 5 turns for a variation of Roy Rose knot.
I don't know if it's a 5 turn surgeons. Might be. To me it's like a 5 turn square knot. It's for fluoro to mono. I tied a loop with one and 40 lb...
Roy Rose knot. Can't break it.
NO YOUR STILL AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!
I went on my first Long Range trip in the 70's. It was a 16 day trip on the Royal Polaris. I think I took 5 reels. A Shimano Tritan Trolling...
So far I've made some 45 and 55 lb. Knot2kinky wire leaders that are 24" long. I purchased some 35 lb. in case they get touchy or previously...
What pound test wire leaders are you using for live bait on the Ridge and Alijos Ricks? Thinking of using Knot2kinky.
It's always good to know what your catch is gonna be in the future, that way if it's slow you can cancel the trip and save fuel.
I like this option better than the level wind. But without lugs it's hard to hang off a trolling strap. Penn should have the lug option on...
Well maybe they should do away with cage divers.
:smoking33: Just another week and you will catch those. It's almost here.
I heard of some guys catching a few fish using fresh frozen squid earlier in the year. Might be worth a shot.
A level wind for trolling on a Long Range boat would be interesting.
Sharks were harmed in the making of this video.
Is this boat the original Producer?
Nice Catch! Rockpile is South of the Coronado Islands. You can see South Island in one of his pics.
Yeah and if he wouldn't have gone for it. He would killed the fish in a different way. And missed out on a 300 lber.
You spend all that money to go on the trip and finally hook the fish of a lifetime and your not going to throw your rod and reel in the water? I...
Get your own boat googan!!!!!!!!
Do the exclamations points help?
Trips varie but on a 9 to 11 day, the long range boats would generally fish the Lower Banks for cow tuna. Especially later in the year. Some years...
Just don't buy a Trophy.
That's what he did on another guys thread when he thought his fish were too small. So maybe a little payback.
And put it in a bucket. No pics again?
I caught a 314 pound YFT on the same blank about 35 years ago.
He was so happy he took a pee in his pants. I would be too especially if I landed the wahoo.
I made some 24 inchers and gonna make a few more. Thanks
If they get it, I have to buy a new 80 lb outfit within the next month. :rolleyes:
I've been pulling pretty hard on the leaders they seem to hold. The knot doesn't get that tight but doesn't slip. I don't do it like the diagram....
I heard it, impressive. If it was at Clemente. I was over 30 miles away.
I've decided to make them about 18" to 20". I'm using Knot too Kinky 45 lb thru 65 lb. Mostly 55 lb. The rolls are 15 feet long and if I cut them...
How long do you typically make your wahoo bait leaders? I'm thinking 18" to 24". I know the wahoo eat it deep on occasion.
They are so close to the Point. What do you want them to do fish at night? I don't think the landing is open in the early morning.
The Bluefin area by Clemente has been closed the last few days.
And troll. I had a friend on a sportboat and they got a quadruple jig strike on yellowfin last Friday. I know it's not likely but it's possible.
No pics? I wanna see if it really is a 85 lber. Did you put it in a bucket or 55 gallon drum?
The guy who said his fish weren't as big as he said is just jealous. Someone always has negative comment. Just sayin!!!!!
Great catch in tough...
Nice shirt. Fish must love you.
Aren't boats responsible for their own wake? I know it's the Navy but they can't drive around sinking boats. If you can prove it was them...
It depends on the boat you are going on. If your on the Royal Star, Royal Polaris or Shogun and they have their Guadalupe Permits then gear...
At least they are not going to say your fish wasn't iced down.
Did you guys stop fishing with the frozen squid when you started to use the live squid? I'm just wondering if the frozen would work if u couldn't...
Thanks for the reply, did you have to use light line?
We're these fish caught on a meter mark? I'm thinking of going next week. Any info would be appreciated.
My bad he was talking about 50 lb. test. OK maybe I'll fish that boat.
He uses his thumb for drag pressure. 50 peeps, what was it half day trip? I've never heard of 50 people on a 2 day. Remind me not to go on that...
3' of 15 lb. fluoro at the end of your mono might work too.
:DSo 50 lb. is a guarantee, cool:D
I remember when the Shogun had an oil filter fall off at Clarion Island and seized an engine. It happens to the best of them.
Hi I am interested in the Lexa 400. 858 9678230
Used it and like it.
At least you hooked a cow this season.
I don't agree that all the boats follow the protocol for 1/2 day, 3/4 day,1 day and long range boats. The Searcher fished the Coronados on a 5 day...
I see your point. I haven't fished on the local fleet lately.
Passengers do all the time on Long Range trips. Those fish are big too. So what's the big deal on letting the passengers set the hook. Although...
It's been a little slower the last 2 days, hopefully it picks up. I'm going Friday.
I caught a 314 lb. yft with the same blank. GLWS
How big we're the dodo's?
I'm thinking of purchasing a Ballyhood Banchee Cowbell trolling lure. Which is the better model to get the full size one or the Jr. I think the Jr...
:gay:Weird post. Think I puked a little.
So Frank is at Socorro again:cool:
I agree, the crowd has gotten too rough, I don't need an argument every time I post a report.
The first yellowtail has a light colored back. Almost yellowish. Strange but it's got big shoulders.
Sounds like wahoo cutting the bait in half.
No like this[ATTACH]
Old Glory caught 3 bluefin today, 110 to 200 lbs. Everyday is different. Friday was a down day.
With more fish boiling around the boat:)
That's a hell of a cast :jig:
Do most of you guys get the Mexican Liability Insurance. Can you get it for just the time your down there or do you get it for the whole year?
Is the email address to send your manifest and proof of payment still [email protected] Does everyone get the required Mexican...
That's the ugliest deck I've ever seen. And i've been fishing for 50 years.
Even the YFT's were 50 to 60 lbers. Good size.
I'm not into watching the Topgun catch bluefin. Especially if they are 100 miles out, I mean 99 miles.
Did you catch any fish?
First a 46 lb. yellow he can hold up with one finger then YFT's in Feb. without pictures. Guys a clown.
I believe (they) were talking about you.
I caught a 314 # yft using the perfection loop on 200# test. 200 # mono has good abrasion resistance . Now I can use it on the knot 2 kinky wahoo...
The RP has been to the Rocks quite a few times on 6 day trips. Frank will burn the fuel.
I caught a 314 pound yellowfin using a 655xxh.
I saw the Rocks in the background in one of there pictures. The RP was there a couple of days ago for only a handful. Maybe the Intepid had more...
If you were going to buy one rod for 60 or 80 would it be the 770H or the XH?
I owned one about 10 years ago and caught 500 albacore out of it in 3 years. I used to take it out 70 miles with no problems. It was a little...
How long is the front foregrip on the UC rod?
And you kill the fish so I believe ya:)
Is the 770xh too heavy for 60?
That's what I have been doing except I use solid and a Bimini.
Is the Calstar 700xh good for 60 lb.?
What brand do you like?
What size reel do have to fish with 130? I think I'd rather stick with 100 and use a smaller reel to cast with. Like a Talica 20.
Your right I thought I did but I guess it's in offshore. I think I'm gonna use 100 just not sure what brand. I hear ya on the different diameters...
That sounds like a good reason. Thanks
I'd have to use a bigger reel.
Is it better to use 80 or 100 lb. spectra for 80 flouro? Hope to fish the Lupe.
We're all gonna be in this boat at some point in our life. My dad is getting close. He's 84 and we just got back from Alijos Rocks. These trips...
Here's your buddy.
You should be more respectful. Hate to be your dad. I take my dad on all of my long range trips. That's what makes the trip for me. Not the amount...
Are you sure? Ross is a special case.
So is Ross gonna stop fishing for quality tuna at 60. I'm 57 and getting ready to retire and kill some quality tuna. Hopefully there's no young...
I'll have to see what I can find. Pictures weren't digital back then. Thanks
I caught a 314 lb. about 25 years ago on 80 lb. and a one speed. It took 2 hours.
Did you use 60 lb. with the 770H?
Is the Calstar 770 xh a good 80 lb. rod?
Rollo is still number one in my book. He was with me when I caught a 314 pounder with a single speed.
Go on a Penn or Accurate sponsored trip and they will have the best tackle for you to try.
Is that a yellowfin in the second bag from left in the picture holding up 2 skipjack?
One time when I broke down, I called Vessel Assist and was waiting for a tow. A private boater offered to tow us until Vessel Assist could take...
I'll be out there around the 302 to start Caballo Del Mar
Sorry about the double post.
He ended up catching more later in the trip.
Happens all the time on LR trips. Leaving for the Rocks in the morning. Glad the hurricane is headed away from Alijos but feel sorry for people in PV.
Lucky that's all you got. Still might get infected.
Should have cut the skin, that's a good hook.
I want to fish south of the Coronado Islands. Probably the Hidden Bank. Do I need to stay 12 miles from the Islands to be clear of the FMM area...
If your bait gets bit in half, leave it out there, a lot of times they come back and eat the other half. It happens more often then not.
Any dodo's under those tires?
Sportboats are like restaurants, if you get good service than you tip accordingly. Same with bad service. The fishing does not affect my tip...
Fish that is vacuum sealed at a processor lasts longer than a Foodsaver. I know there is another more expensive sealer, I need to get one. I do it...
He's just saying its a Cedros quality yellow. I think.
I fished that spot too. I camped on Isla Partida. It's closer to the grounds.
That's cool, just wondering if anyone has caught any recently. Of course you have to hunt for them. Just trying to save some time.
Can you post if you catch macks, I'm going out in a few days?
Anyone know where to make Macks out Mission Bay? I've caught them in the past around the entrance, around both OB and Crystal Piers, and the...
Thanks for the reply, good info
Nice catch, did you find a meter mark or did you just start chunkin?
I' m done
I took 5 on this trip.
I like to eat them as Tacos. They are the right for me.
Good point and thanks
I love the ignore button.

striperdick or death has more posts on this thread than he's ever posted before and has no boat. And called himself 90 percent dick which I agree.
Thanks. Your right makes my thread a lot friendlier.
Yes those are big honeycombs, according to striperdick or death
We're the big ones lost hooked on the troll as well?
Having fish mañana. Can't wait. Didn't make Day at the Docks hope it was kool.
What kind of purple lure is that in the second picture with the treble hooks?
The 425 is the only spot that starts with a 4 that is within 25 or 30 miles from Point Loma. That don't look like Clemente to me. So 425 is my guess.
We fished there Friday about the same time and caught 12 rats in short order. It was rough and windy. The weather must have been better Saturday...
I had something pick up my line when I had rock cod on and start taking line. Then same happened to my dad. They drop it or more likely took a...
What's up with the sunglasses, there falling off your head.:cool:
Good catch, way to go the distance.
Nice job Cory.
Winkedink.Thanks for the info. I thought those fish were Starrys.
True dat. All from a Rockcod trip:-) at least I got a few likes.
Whatever dude, thanks for screwing up my post of fun trip by nit picking. Relax a little. Go fishing it's good therapy.
Did you observe Reds?
You didn't see the Reds. That what I was talking about. Not those dinks. I didn't make the rude comment. Just asked what were honeycombs? So maybe...
I caught these fish in Mexico and they are kept on my Colenett trips by all on board on the Sportboats I go on.
What's a Honeycomb?
I went to Coronado Islands for the second time in two weeks. Both trips we caught limits of reds and this time we caught 12 small yellowtail...
Where did the boat catch the butts
Your right they have orange tape.
I just wanna fish and not worry. Like the old days. But at least I'm fishin' there again.:-)
Nice Ling, and Ling fishing:-)
I wanna find that school, nice quality!
I went last weekend for the first time with fmm. I received a confirmation email the next day. I was lucky. I would go with receipt, manifest and...
I want pictures, I can't read :idiot:
You want his secret spot. Not.
Don't see a pic. How big was it?
Nice quality and on the iron!
Way too many steps for me. I don't have that kind of spare time.
Wimpy way out, grow a pair.
I waited too on the FMM. I was out there as well. Didn't start fishing for yellows until around 11:00. Pulled into South Island and found smaller...
I think it's 4 in Mexico.
Thanks Tunaslam. Enjoy your posts.
Went to the Coronado Islands for a limit of Reds and 13 small Yellowtail. Had a great time and some of the best Rockfishing I've seen in long...
How was the weather?
Sorry for the quad post.
Nice catch but he's laying down. Must be tired from the first 2. I would be.
I wanna fish hard:shake:

Good Lingcod bait.
Yeah are they legal?
Actually I was out there yesterday.
Good job on the Reds. We were out there too. Didn't get out ther till about 9:00. Caught some fish included small Reds and Bank Perch. Went North...
Was he really out there?
He did say that it was him and his buddy got 25 percent. Maybe he was the lucky F--ker. Did he look like this?
All I catch in the local area is cute fish. I need my FMM for better quality. At least they taste good.
They moved it from offshore.
Can you move this to inshore. Thanks
Took the boat out with a few friends to test the local Rockfish area. Ended up with a pretty good day of assorted Rockfish and a couple of...
On the FMM form what do they mean by consignee or shipping agent. What is a sea record number?

Tuna bellies with fins
Except the Aztec out of Seaforth, they ended up with 105 yt.
143 at 6:10 for 17 anglers
That makes sense to chum if they were in the whole water column. I guess them being full of red crabs makes it tougher.
It's amazing how these fish react to chum when there down 300 or 400 feet.
I think that only applies to rockfish.
I wouldn't either.
Should of kept the boat Lizardklr
Congrats on getting a quality yellow on a half day.
We're those fish on jig or dropper loop?
Thanks for the info.
Which technique worked better besides the light line setup, yoyo or the loop?
Sounds good thanks
Thanks. Anybody using 60 and 80 lb. for dropper loop?
What lb. test are guys using for the dropper loop and yo-yo. I have to set up rigs for a couple of guys and want to make sure we the right stuff....
Is this trip a go for sure?

I've seen wahoo caught north of La Paz at San Jose Island and remember one big one in WON caught out of Loreto.
Wahoo aren't caught in San Diego either. I've even heard of Roosterfish north of Gonzaga so anything is possible.
Sounds like De-Anza trailer park to me, not Campland. I know you can camp at De-Anza.
Rough day, but congrats on the do-do's
What were you trolling with??
I'm used to seeing Roy gaffing a wahoo with either Clipperton or Clarion in the background not the Coronados.
I do, Bruce is great guy and happy for him.
Bell should keep his deckhands in check. Especially after he poached the patty.
That's the best fishing picture I've seen all Summer:)
I was on the trip too. This is the second time I fished this boat in 2 years. Both times they fished San Jose instead of Colonet. There counts...
Cathy Needleman caught a #355lb yft on the Independence and by herself. A friend Gary Sturny caught a #290. Congrats to them.
I was down there and a female in front of me said 445 lbs. right before the weighing. Good guess.
Zoom in on this picture of Bill Pooles statue. Looks like a rastaman. Nice fish too. Congrats
Thought i was first on list. No response from PM.
sent you a pm, i would like to get it. Thanks
Good luck Armando and Carl. Save me some wahoo Armando.
Pop's and I went on both trips. Hogue was on the first one. He haed a Marlin that hit the boat and left its bill in the side of the Searcher.
I went on the last 2 of these trips on the Searcher and remember fishing for 7 days straight. It's a great trip.
A little difference being on the Vagabond vs someone down there in a 20 foot skiff.
Can someone tell me what is required to fish offshore in Mexico? I have not been out in a while. Do I still need a visa to fish within 20 miles of...
They replaced the bearings and installed a larger handle for $30 each. They sent back the old handles.
Just got a couple of 15's back. Also got great service.
Same thing happened to the Searcher. It is a lot bigger boat. The boat made many trips with it in the hull. All the way into the Sea of Cortez....
Good idea, thanks for your help.
My friends Gary and Armando are on that trip. We've known Bruce since he was a passenger on the Searcher.
They have the same phone number. How long does it take?
Where can I take or send my Makaira 15 for the upgrade? I live in San Diego.

Roy Rose knot, stronger than the rest.
These people caught this yellowtail while towing a Sardine behind the remote control boat at Guadalupe Island. Lucky a great white didn't eat the...
Caught my first yellow off that boat on live squid.
I'm leaving tomorrow on a 5 day on the Searcher. Heard we are going for the Albies. Then maybe some yellows down below. I will report when I return.
Art has a lot of years of experience fishing along the Baja coast and locally. The crew has been with him for a long time. He runs a top notch...
Is this pick up or shipped? Where do you live?
I figure if the guy in Puerta Vallarta caught a 314 lber. on a 80 dollar spinning reel than this reel is big enough for cows.
It's been while since I caught my 314# at Clarion on a single speed reel. It was a 50W. I just haven't used the smaller reels for big fish.
I am going down on a 9 day fly back on the Searcher on Dec. 1st. Do you think a 30W is big enough for the cows down below? I want to put 135 lb....
If your going late in the season, you might want to bring some 100 LB. You might be fishing for cow tuna.
The people from Texas and Lousiana use spinners to catch tuna over 100 lbs. I think they use them because they can cast the poppers out further,...
Looks like an Amato Panga. Good job on the YFT's.
You have to add Broomtail Grouper to have a Cedros grandslam!
Try the classifieds, I've seen them in there.
Just returned from a 8 day on the Q-105. We started fishing the first day on the 213 bank for nothing. The next day found us 180 miles from Point...
I've had a couple of boats built in Ensenada by Amato. His boats are built strong. I have not been down in a while. Is he still located south of...
Been following your reports on 2cool for a while. The pictures are better on this site. I have a freind in San Antonio that just bought...
Calstar 700 ml.
The rod is built and feels excellent for 40#.
I caught a 314 lber. using the perfection knot on 200lb. test mono.
Does anyone know the rating on a Calstar 700MH? I'm thinking of building one.
Gregors are welded boats and less likely to leak than a rivoted boat.
Try the 2coolfishing site. Its a Texas fishing site and there is a thread on this subject. Most of them prefer the Stella because they can get the...
How much was the flight from Ensenanda to Cedros?
I've hooked them on bait at the Islands below Cabo but never heard of one eating a lure.
There's a lot of nice reels for sale in the classifieds on this website. There are some good prices for reels in great condition.
Is that Cedros?
where's the video?
Sounds like a fun trip. Glad you were not taxed too bad.
I recently took apart my Saltist 40 and found 2 washers for the bearing protector. One is smaller than the other one and I forgot the way they...
Torium 14 and the new small Saltist are good reels for the price. The Avet SX is a good bet for a little more.
I recently went on a trip on the Relentless that caught an albie, a bluefin and a marlin. Since it was such a slow trip they cleaned all the fish...
I had both on a recent 5 day and ended up using the LX 2 speed more as it was lighter and easier to cast. I agree with HTA and think the HX would...
Nice boils and sunset.
I thought I felt a bump on the bottom of my boat when I went out.:imdumb:
Isn't that a 40# rod. Seems kinda heavy for 25#. There's one for sale in the classfieds for $150. I saw it and it is great condition.
I went out on the Relentless yesterday for 1 ablie, 1 bluefin and 1 marlin for the entire boat. We went out over a 100 miles and trolled for 80...
I've used Newells for years and have caught a ton of fish on them including tuna over 100#s on the 400 series. Newells are however higher...
A lot of poeple from all over the country fish our long range fleet and do very well. Although I've never heard of that rod.
Go with an Avet, machined frame for a little more, great freespool and a lot of power. Check the classified ads on this website. Probably a LX or...
