Mikes a cool guy with a killer boat....let me know when you plan on hitting the islands.
Looking for a
Phenix SMX-82H M1
Hit me up!
I would love to have it on a baitcasting rod, does this rod have enough backbone for brute yellows, tuna?
I think 65# is gonna be a safer bet, thanks for the info.
Still looking for a rod to pair it with, might give those Proteus rods a try.
Looking to pair a rod with my Lexa 400, still haven't lined it up just yet, but leaning to 65 power pro...maybe 50? Open to suggestions.
I have had some interesting offers thrown, but thankfully not desperate to sell.
I am open to trades, no motorcycles. Optimal trade would be a...
The boat and trailer measure ~19' from tip of trailer tounge to back of boat.
Thanks, gonna miss it for sure. Would love to step it up to your 23' Parker
Confused by this...but, yes my boat is legit, thanks
You are correct, the flyer lists it at 12" if I recall correctly, but I'd say 13 or 14 is more reasonable.
Thanks! Hope you find what your looking for.
Never really tracked the burn rate because it was always super cheap to run....
17’ Shamrock Open
Have been the proud owner of this beast of a boat for over 2 years, gets a ton of attention on the water. Purchased it from an...
I plan on selling my 17' Shamrock pretty soon, let me know if this is something you maybe interested in?

Just purchased this reel and not sure if I should load it up with 50 or 60# spectra and what kind of spectra? Should I load it all the way to the...
We ended up making it ourselves, no boats answering! We made enough to get us our WSB.
Anyone confirm bait, hailing on 11 for nada. Are they in the back?
Ended up buying the reel new from a local tackle shop.
Still looking for a rod
I'm in HB and interested in these reels, would be nice to have 8+' rod attached.
Send me a PM please
Interested...im in HB, pm when you come to Yorba Linda.
A friend of a friend passed away and I was the fortunate one to be of the receiving party to this treasure.
Just cracked open an old tackle box,...

I have a 17' Shamrock CC, that might be for sale if I land a deal on another boat. Hit me up and I'll keep you posted
You did amazing work......great job, when can I drop my boat off?
Sent you a PM
Don't know the back story........., but gonna get me an epirb!
Pretty sad......7 people on a 15' skiff.!
I'm surprised it lasted that long.......this is a dope skiff!
Congrats on the sale.
Do you guys think that with all the Red Crab this year, are we going to be able to pull on 20#+ Yellows at the 150 and Horseshoe like we did last...
Only a 20" shaft, but killer deal
Nice Shamrock, would you consider trading for a 170 Shamrock Open?
Heartbreaking story......my prayers go out to the kids that witnessed it and to the rest of his family!
I have had my current spectra on my reels for 2 seasons, is it something I should look into replacing for this season?
The guy is a natural in everything he does....I can see it now "come on dad, I got 5 fish aboard where are yours?"
Gonna take him to the FH...
Thanks for all the positive comments, every time I watch the video it makes me smile... had to share it.
Took my son on your first solo mission, he's 4 years old! Figured i'd ease him into the process and hung out in Huntington Harbor.
Wow, nice flattie! Was that you I saw squeezing in at the moorings in Shoreline Village? Amazing summer weather that day, I didn't fare as well in...
Still available? Looks like fun, how fast does it go?
Nice bay/hooping/local yellowtail boat!
That's a cool picture with a monster bass!
Looks like he's just introducing air into the pants, so basically cup your hand out of the water and force air/water into the pants.
This may help someone.........
Nice......What temps are you getting in the harbor and outside?
I don't know about you, but I'd rather burn less fuel and use a my personal drone to find exact locations of paddies.
Imagine instead of your...
Thats a bad ass boat!
I'm more interested in your "man overboard", immediately above Avalon Bank...care to elaborate?
I know it's too late for this, but for the future.......
I used to the put them in cars that I would sell "buy here, pay here", I...
I am not Neil, go to his website that I listed in the previous post and give him a call.
Get a rechargeable 18650 battery and your set, gives out 1000 lumens at its highest setting.
Call Neil with Fourreelsportfishing;
I don't need them to fold, therefore the ambush ones would be more fitting for my boat. I will consider the zip tie method, thanks for the tip.
Long shot? Looking to do a strait up trade for my Promar Eclipse's for the Ambush style hoops, I have a total of 5. If anyone is looking for the...
I take it your slack line is weighted down?
Sounds like a blast with the kids!
Let see your setup, how do you have your floats rigged?
Nice, what choice of bait did you go with?
Wow, I wonder what we are gonna do in a couple of years when all we can catch is rock fish. This season has for sure spoiled us! Good luck in your...
I know they like to molt a lot more in warmer waters, so I foresee larger models and numbers to be decent.
Gonna be a good season, as long as...
Much respect for reaching out to those kids. More than likely without you, they would have never lifted a pole!
Haven't heard of too many tuna off the pods this year. Congrats on sticking to them, looks like it payed off.
Congrats on your dream catch.....water looks super glass in that Marlin pic!
Who needs a paddy!
Job well done.
I had to ask the same question when I started fishing. The only difference is I had to figure out my own shit, but the nice guy I am........
Nice job Brent, you earned your DoDo flag for sure! I can tell how stoked you where when you sent that text......you have a long weekend ahead of...
Brent (StagecoachHB) just text me, he just caught a monster dodo trolling past the 150!
I spent $100 bucks on a foodsaver last year that after a month refused to suck all the air out. No bueno!
I don't know what is more exciting, reading about your ordeal or watching it on youtube....to bad it was really early or I am sure you would have...
Great job on a fish of a lifetime......wish someone was there to help!
There should be a "PG" radio channel, when kids are on my boat radio stays...
60# DODO on the bucket list for sure!
What's happening buddy......Congrats on the Blackman.....20'er? Nice boats!
We gotta buddy boat one of these day, hit me up.
Can't wait for...
Nice view you had there! You didn't fish the island it was loaded with yellows.
That is awesome! I would love to get my kids on their first yellows, all are under 8.......your post is gonna make me bite the bullet and sneak...
Killer day on the water!
I don't see any blood on the deck, are they bleeding their fish?
That was an awesome video, poor girl was getting beat up. Job well done to the both of you!
Is this only tackle or will there be boating stuff as well?
Nice job sticking too it, the kid earned that stripe!
Sushi on Fire, only thing you need to order is the Refreshing Roll by far the best roll you can have! Tell Mama I said hi!
Tragic news, life is short. My condolences to you and the family........:hali_olutta:
Snapped this pic before heading out;
I completely omitted, stay as far away from the boat Breakaway.....its holds true to its name, busted...
Fun catching with others, but it's also nice having solitude on the water!
I'm not 100% certain, but I am assuming its a 30-40 gal tank and should hold 1/2 a scoop without any issues.
Took my 17 year old brother to the 105 today and he ended up landing his biggest yellow yet! He was picked up at 9am and a couple of mins later...
Sweet, I just got back from the 105 and got about the same grade fish...all big boys!
The question now is who fillets your catch?
Since you got...
On my way out right now, hopefully I can materialize and can find a fish to peel off 40#.
Talk about loaded with detail, amazing report and nice job putting the guys on fish!
Nice job Brent, happy to hear the bait is looking better. Gonna give it another try tomorrow, hopefully I can materialize again!
Wow, love the carnage!
Got it grandpa, i'll make sure to steer away not on top of you next time.
It is what it is, the only way to slalom through that swell and crowd was to get on it...not trying to piss anyone off!
Thanks for all the comments guys I appreciate it.
The wind picked up around 11, just drifted and all fish where on 25# 3/0 owner ringed hooks...
Good to see this post pop back up, hope it helps the masses! I can't see anyone reading this and not going out to their boat to check the bolt. I...

Dude hit up FourReel https://www.fourreelsportfishing.com/ He's been hitting schools of Bluefin the past few trips.
What's happening buddy.......when are we gonna go hit the Threshers?
On a 13' Whaler............nice!
You look pretty equipped, and that boat looks like a nice layout. How does the bait tank do upfront?
Do you leave early morning on the way out,...
I really appreciate all the advice and help, trying to soak it all up.
I received a very detailed response via PM from a BDer that would like to...
Any recommendations? I do a lot of solo fishing on my 17' and don't want to be selfish anymore. I have three kids and a wife that need me to come...
That was awesome in all aspects!
Hit up Neil tell him Mike sent you, he has an awesome operation and will get you on the fish. His past 5 trips he has hit tuna on all of them....
Wow, really sad. Our prides seem to get in our ways when it comes to life vests, this is perfect proof of what they can do. The one wearing one...
Looking for a Ttop for my Shamrock 17'.
My console is 36" x 36"......anyone?
Nice job on landing an assorted bag for the kid. Did you take your kid on your 17' to Catalina?
Mind elaborating on your report, was out there as well but couldn't get them to bite anything.
Have an extra one that you no longer need?
Anyone have an extra one that they no longer need?
I agree, I had one with a million miles that didn't want to die, even found water in the lower and still ran amazingly!
Go preach somewhere else!
My guess is the rest of the boat ganged up on him and your just reiterating what the rest of the jackasses on the boat...
Awesome video, love seeing all the smaller skiffs loading up!
Never fail to impress...awesome dodo!
HAHAHAHA......that was awesome!
I have one, with a ton of extras.....everything you need to start wrapping.
Is it trying to turn over, or nada?
Sounds to me that when things heat up something is failing, could be a faulty wire.
Thanks for the gaff and net they are gonna work perfectly........stand up guy!
Looking for an antenna......whatcha got?
Wow, and I stuck in the harbor fishing calicos with the kids. Great job!
Im interested in the blue gaff and the shorter net...pm me with info and price.
Thanks for your help guys, downloaded windfinder...seems like a good app.
Oh man that gave me chills thinking about the feelings you must have went through. I have a three year old boy and there is no way I want to even...
Curious to know where you go, for your go to information and how to read it. ie; conditions report, how to know if its going to be glass out there...
Great boat with a great story......the name is very fitting, enjoy!
Open to all reasonable options, trying to expand my search in to smaller boats and also possibilities of a CC. I am tired of looking for a boat.
He hasn't responded to my post or PM?????
You look like Chumlee.......nice bassin!
Westcoast dream boat, hard boat to one-up! Best of luck in the sale and future purchase Kevin.
Wow.....wait until the 150 yellowtail bite turns into Tuna and Dorado. Your gonna have to call ahead for reservations to find a spot to fish.
Great report and happy to hear the dodos are in!
We had the same luck yesterday, 4am-4pm except we saw no fish at all.....other than meter marks. Hit the 267 to the 209 back to the 14 for 6 dry...
Nice job Mando......good to hear you got your rig back in the water.
Crazy......congrats! Maybe, just maybe i'll get a chance at one of those suckers this season......optimistic!
whOPAH of a fish....congrats!
I bet you watched every YouTube video on how to fillet that thing, not an easy task from what I hear.

Still in the hunt.......
I always thought 10 was a bit much, but 2......sport boats are gonna take a huge hit or won't target them!
It's not my boat but one I am looking at and wanted to get your opinions. There is growth and pitting in the trim tabs and other areas, just...
What is you take in regards to keeping a boat in the water (long term) with no bottom paint and getting someone to scrub it every other week?
Looking good, what are you going to do for nonskid?
Awesome project, love seeing these things come together!
Damn, I wish I was able to investigate all my curiosities as eloquently as you have..........mind blown.......thanks for sharing!
Great report and congrats on the yellows.
Did your fish stay in the sacks all day?

Great additions you have done on a killer boat!
Great job bringing it back from the dead, lets get pics of it sitting on the water.
Stand up guy, very nice of you to do that Brent!
Yup, fiverr is your best bet or stand in front of a Japanese market and your bound to find someone to help.
Back from the dead..........still in the hunt!
I guess I wasn't clear, slickster.
I am looking for a company......preferably a BDer to come lay some concrete and some pavers.
Awesome, thanks for the feedback!

I am looking to get some Concrete work done in my backyard. Need to remove grass in some areas, would also like a section of pavers done as well.
That sailfish looks sweet.........nice work Mike!
That is truly an amazing gesture but I am sure it is well deserved..........hope your buddy gets to enjoy many more seasons of blood on the deck.
Just posted this on another thread.
The first and only wrap that I did was a Rainshadow 80L cut down 6"......by far my favorite rod. I purchased...

That was a great read, now we know who the big boys hang out with!
I foresee this being the norm, this has been an insane season!
Congrats to Mr. Kim and the Capt and crew of the Joker!
Everyone has a story!
25 years? by then I would have picked a couple of boats and stuck with them.
Just don't ride that boat...
You go through boats like you do woman.........hit me up with the details.
Your posts always motivate me to get on the water, love the DoDos!

More info and pics please
Hope you find someone, best of luck!
It must feel nice cruising into the harbor with a boat load of palegics, nice job!
What's up Brent, I guess that's better than a skunk.
Hit me up when your ready to roll down south.
Now go shampoo the carpet.
There are a ton of boats in Florida that if they where here I would buy in a second, but once you put in travel time, gas......it's not worth it....
I am getting tired of looking, I can't find anything that will suit my needs. I'm even willing to dump more money.

Very nicely done, and got your girls involved.......great job!
Thanks for all the pms. Still in the hunt, would like to stick to an outboard. Please no run down boats, if your going to offer up your boat...
As the title says, I would like to budget 10k. I would obviously like something that is well kept and not too many hours on the motor. I would...
Interesting article I stumble upon, I'd like to catch a blue dodo and speckled rooster....
Biggest 26er iv seen, you have kept it very clean. SD to Cabo...that's a ballsy move in a 26er!
That is an amazing build, sorry to hear about your fathers passing. I wish you the best of luck in finding your boat, i'm sure there are more than...
Very clean job.......20 hours well spent!
I would consider purchasing the boat if you are still up for selling it.
If i'm booked and paid, I never look at the weather.......always be prepared and have fun.
I fell in love with the layout of these boats when I fished on mikes. I can't seem to find any sub90's 216 boats for sale, can anyone fill me in...
Sucks to hear your still going through the Home Depot process, miss your small half mounts from the show. Good luck selling that beast, it'll look...
If i'm bringing my kid, I wouldn't bother taking money from my buddy.
Soak with WD40, then anytime of gun oil.
Some great fishing!
I definitely understand your feeling about being thankful for being a dad, nothing tops it.
Frank's got a broken face!
Screw the food, I want a safe clean boat with a fishy captain and a bad ass crew to back him up!
Must be nice, killer job!
Damn, I need to take a week off of work.
Looked like a fun project until I saw all the wires.........your doing a great job, looking forward to seeing the progress.
Very nice boat, how many hours and where is it located?
I will try contacting Maridosa or the Ultra, we are 5 in total. Thanks for the tips
Thanks, was able to get a hold of him but he is booked.
Looking to book a 6 pack targeting Seabass, trying to get a hold of the Dreamer but he isn't answering. Any recommendations?
In my opinion lockers should be installed on all boats, there are many places they could be incorporate. I wouldn't mind paying a nominal fee....
Wow, talk about starting the season off with a bang.
Cribbg, what reel were your using?
That was a great report of an awesome trip...good luck trying to top it!
Didn't realize that, thanks!

This is the coolest 14'er I have seen, bad ass little boat.
I love my Jx, I hate my Lx.
I was on a boat that had a crew that lets just say weren't having a good day, as soon as I signed in on the boat I had a bad feeling. The crew...
That was bad ass..........awesome editing. Makes me want to go out and buy a kayak.
Sounds like a great overnight, it's been a while since I have fished the Truline......gotta get on one of their overnights. Congrats on the jackpot.
A lot of indirect useful information in this post.
Great job on the boat...........saw you fishing, looks sweet sitting in the water. Now I know your "secret" hali spot.
I'd call that a bitch slap, congrats on getting your ass kicked.
Was fishing the other day when my buddy ended up dropping his truck keys in the drink.
Nice trek, your boat is basically the Prius of boats........where do you plug her in?
Exactly how a day off should be spent with the boy.........great job dad for training the little dude to out fish you!
I am looking at doing concrete or pavers in my front and back yard, would love to hire a BDer.
RIP sailor; that's not a way anyone should go down.
That's a cool moto to go by......."kill it, then decided if you want to keep it"
That's a nice shot of your sonor. Every time I hit the rigs it was more for fishing than catching.
You always kill it out there, do you ever go out and get skunked?
What would have sucked, is if DFG showed up as your new passenger threw up the...
This is an awesome post! Can't wait to take my 2 year old boy out this summer.........he wants his first fish to be a Dorado, not sure how I am...
Wow, these are pretty impressive!
I'm impressed, I know a lot of guys that would've blown it off......(if its running fuk it)......you did the right thing looking for the issue.
Radical.......blast from the past!
Those are awesome pix, gotta find a nice place to take my little boy. Tried taking him Surffishing last week,...
It was nice meeting you Cody. Hope you enjoy the reel and slay some big ones.

I have ridden this boat a few times it rides awesome and burns no fuel. Too bad to see this thing go, what are we going to use to get our limits...
You are a good dude and by the sounds of it, you know what your doing......doubt you'll need help from others. I see limits for you and your wife...
Wow, that musta been an eerie feeling to be floating around and nobody responding to "help". There would have been no way I would have gotten back...
Wow, talk about an impulsive move....Regardless, best of luck!
Stop bsing Brent we know those are yours!
Thanks for clarification.
Nice way to spend time with family.
Steak in between sets sounds good!
Damn 38 shorts, that would suck. To me shorts are just like crab, go right back in and don't keep count. I'm...
Yup, current was ripping last night. Which worked out great for us...one shy of double limits with some monsters in the mix and the rest not...
Your going to miss the fact that you sold you fiberglass boat. Aluminum boats are nice boats, but not for everybody. Super rough ride when there...
Wow, that's a get to the point boat! Looks super functional, congrats!
Nice to see that Daves still around. Showed my 6 year old daughter your post, she thinks Maya is pretty cool!
That's what it's all about, nice!
Nice! Out of curiosity, do they have any regulations in regards to size, quantity, areas.....?
Looking to charter out a boat for about 12 people on Oct 5 in either Newport or Huntington. It's my brother in law's birthday party, so trying to...
That is bad ass, the more I watch these spear videos the more I want to get into it.
Luckily you where over prepared for rat yellows, otherwise would have sucked braking off using 12#. Congrats on your great catch!
Congrats, and well deserved. I am sure that the show will take off!
That sounds like an interesting setup. So basically, you are resting your rods on the 2 four foot sections? Any pics?
Just saw this setup, whats your take on just putting the rods in the pvc with no forward support?...
Trying to avoid hooks.
The piranha seems popular but looking for a little more spaced out setup.
I am looking at a better method for storing the masses of rods I somehow accumulated. Right now I have a wall mount that holds 6 rods and the rest...
Wow, I don't know whats more impressive.....seeing Albis on my screen or the fact that an old salt can go through all that "abuse" (driving,...
I'm really sorry to hear about your loss Debi, more so for your son.....no offense. He is young and this will probably replay in his mind for a...
Wow, running away from the fish.......that's a first. I know he's going to be keeping spools of heavy line in the wheelhouse.
Those are awesome pix of your kid, that last one takes that cake..........Great job Dad!
Great effort trying to land the kid a tuna...with your dedication it'll come sooner then later!
Agreed great post, your report makes me want to wrap up my trip across the pond and get back on the water!
Looks like it was dead for a while, how did the meat end up tasting?
Killer way to end a trip!
Thanks, that's what I needed to know. I didn't plan on selling them, but was curious to know if what I spent was worth it. I made out pretty well....
I really good customer of mine proposed a very fair deal to me today. He inherited this stuff from an old salt and is moving to Kansas where he...
Great job gentleman, job well done. You and Norm have a ton of frequent flier miles on the Condor....great boat!
That's a flatty to remember, doesn't get better than catching it on a rod you built yourself...well deserved!
Nice fishing with you and congrats on the JP Tim, you earned it!
Just to elaborate on your report, we started off with a rationed amount of...
That's a great trek that you took with your pops, for a nice reward.........nice job on your pb!
Nice boat, congrats!
Yellows are scattered all over the place...........Bluefin 100+
I plan on taking 20, 25 and 30# I am stuck at work and wont have time to change one of those setups to 40#.
The boats are selling out quick and...
It's a toss up........the Condor is a bigger boat, and leaves earlier, I guess because its slower?
It seems like my options have narrowed vastly.......I was counting jumping on the TopGun 80 but here I am. Never fished either boat...
Damn, I wondered what all those boats where doing out there............now I know! Nice job
Yup, a no fish report is as important as a catch report! Give it a week or two those paddies are gonna be loaded with dodos!
That is bullshit, I like taking the law into my own hand sometimes, but shit like that you need to call the authority's to sort out...like stated...
I have a Torium 14 and love it. When your casting conventionals you always want to lightly thumb the spool as line is peeling out, right before...
That is an amazing amount of seabass, awsome job guys!
You got the halibuts dialed in Nathan........good job getting the little man hooked up! Cool pics.
Came back like butter........can't wait to hook up!
I was in the same boat, ended up going with the MXJ 2 speed. It caught a jackpot tuna on its maiden voyage!
Dropped it off to Shimano last week, got a call this morning they said it shipped out..........it did cost 40 bucks plus shipping. Didn't ask why,...
Good job putting the work in, good grade calis and a nice fat yellow! Thanks for the dope about the tuna.
Whoever Brody is, I hope he is doing...
Cory=Salty.......great job buddy!
props to the captain that put you on the fish.
Nice job taking your youngin.........how old is the little dude? I am contemplating taking my almost 2 year old out.
Steel case is going to be a lot harsher on your AR than copper. That being said, your going to need to make sure your oiled up well....

You did an awesome job, great craft work. I guess it doesn't hurt to have access to a shop with everything you need.
Great job kid, your rig looks awesome on the water......looks like the house was meant to be there. Keep up the great work!

Great craftsmanship...it's coming together great!

You gotta admit everyone posting has a bit of jealousy going on. If I knew it was a world record I'd kill it in a heartbeat. Thankfully, I don't...
Tom Cod......the new SoCal bait! Nice blue lings
Congrats on the jackpot, better than Vegas!
Great play by play....I'd trade my electronics for that old salt anyday!
Finally a T report.........I would definitely call that a nice surprise.
Any day at Catalina is a good day!
That sounds like a great family trip, job well done!
Great report and nice flattie!
Water is getting warmer every weekend, I like this trend.
I was surf fishing HB last week and ran into a monster seal suntanning on the beach...that was a first for me. Not many shark reports...
Nice boat, figure out a selling price yet? I'm interested.
When you say the boat sat for many years and its been on the water 8 times the past...
Nice, but I was expecting bloodydecks?
That's like finding a gold coin instead of a silver one. Nice!
You come from a fishy gene pool, keep it up kid!
I saw that Mermaid your talking about, she was washed up on Dog Beach.........musta been a rough night for her.
That is a clean skippy, these things ride awesome! Reminds me of my buddies old boat, nicely kept.
Thanks guys, I will be dropping it off to Shimano.
Who here is the BD knot god? These questions pop up often enough.
We need someone to make videos of knots that we use here on the West...

Congrats on the yerrows!
Well done, it ain't over until the fat lady sings!
I still haven't found the key for those things, the name is very well suited "ghost"!
I have had my fair share of idiots intrude on my "territory", I learned I don't own it unless the paper is in the safe. Then again, I never submit...
Time on the water pays off, nice job!
Did you make the crossing in your skiff?
Congrats on meeting your goal. I take it the yellows where just out of your reach, where they smaller grade? It seems like the fatties are away...
Hope everything worked out for Jeff........that boat is a fish mill.
Man that's a tough one, wish you the best! Too bad the kids had to experience that, will only make them tougher.
Wow, that would have been a nice trip to be on!
I don't think he owns it anymore.
Talk about getting great intel.......... Nice job guys.
Congrats on getting out of that messy scenario SAFE!
Brought back memories of my Bayrunner. Those things are though to crack. I was out on my...

Nice save Brandon.

Awesome job.......well deserved!
I am sure the newbie had good knots tied, and more than likely had a trip of a lifetime!
I need to get me one of those slugs........nice job
I would want someone telling me that I was fishing in a no take zone........doing your part...
No wsb, but a cooler full of fish tacos. Nice trip Curt.

Those are some awesome pieces Mike, congrats on the first place win.
Pay to park its not bad, either that or drive around the neighborhood and swipe a spot......should be doable depending on when your boat leaves.
Excited to get it out of jail Sunday, thanks again Allen!
I'll take it per our conversation!
Lets see how long this lasts, fyi its a poly!
Travis is your man, knows his shit!
If you guys do get out, hit me up.
They usually lie dormant in the winter, you'll need a shovel to dig them up. If they are out look for ripples where the waves recede.
This man knows what he is saying.............what's up Mondo?
Looking to redo my system, 8-10 cameras.........anyone?

I was able to track one down today (pmag 10/20), got it for 25 bucks!
All these comparisons of outlawing this and outlawing should be left out of this conversation, it's plain stupid! Some sort of regulation changes...

But as an owner of a business, I can't justify gouging my customers.
FYI, was able to get the chance to shoot a Savage 111xp with a Nikon scope in the .270 over the weekend. I was able to hit 4 out of 4 targets at a...
I use my Torium 14 loaded with spectra for rockfish, but its a bitch reeling in at 300 ft no matter what reel you use!
I seen some of that stuff at a blm yesterday, didn't think anything of it other than it looked odd.
Yup, picked up some as well! Every gun store I went to was sold out, and swamped with people.
FYI, my buddy says Turners has them for pretty cheap at the moment.
So its seems as if you guys would recommend I buy this rifle minus the scope. Any recommendations as to what scope to purchase?
I have another...
Wow, that's complete disregard by the employee, and I can understand you bashing the company for not having some sort of policy set for people...
Nice, looking forward to pictures!
I don't think I'll ever look at a shovel the same way!

Hello looking to see if any BDers have appliance shops.
I am looking for either Viking, Thermador. I need a 42" fridge, 30" double oven, 36" cook...
Holy shit, that would keep me off the water for a while!
Looks like a cool range, I'm gonna stop by over the weekend. Limited to 25 yards. But being 20-30mins from HB it'll do. Thanks, Mike
Sounds like fun, no pictures of the cleaning process?
That was a fun read, thanks!
Great job kid, and congrats to you father.
Thanks for all the info guys, I appreciate it.
So first I will be signing up for the hunters safety course, then check out some guns. Any guns...
The procrastination stops!
Hunting has fascinated me since I was a child, but I never had any friends or family members that where into it. I...
I commend you on actually using the boat, those are some amazing pictures.
Damn talk about competition, there goes my plan to open up a sushi joint!
Sushi on Fire in HB off of Main St. right before the Starbucks heading towards the pier. Try the refreshing roll, you won't be disappointed!
:appl: WOW, job well done!
Nice report, thanks!
The only thing missing is a wsb and a yellow that are still lingering at the island, nice haul!
My condolences to you and your family! RIP
RIP brother, my sincere condolences to his family and friends. The inshore forum is going to be a lot less interesting without...
Already, didn't you just get this boat?
Lol, damn talk about pushing the boundaries! Have that person buy a lobster card for 10 bucks, that way you don't have to burn any brain cells.
40# Hali or 15# sounds like fun!
Forget homeguards those are HOME RUNS!!!
I don't see any harm in what he said, he posted about finding yellows at the island........which is a good thing! Someone asked about the WFO in...
Float tube mafia!
Nice report, but if you had your advertisers rod rack you could have gaffed/netted that halibut!
Appreciate all you do for the kids Dan!
That's a sweet looking boat!
Love seeing kids on the water, its an awesome feeling having them on board! Can't wait to find the right boat so I can get my kids back on the water.
$140, wow that's cheap for all the work that you put into that rod!
Forget the spotties, I drop my hoops and always get limits of lobster while anchored to the big gray boat.
That's gotta be the best way to clear a hangover!
Wow the big boys are coming out, much props on the releases!
Unfortunately, someone else will pull him up and split him in two!
Wow, nice T......was that 50# strait mono, no wire leader on the second go around?
No fillet pics.....How long did it take you?
I'm sure he gets the job done real quick if its free!
That's a bad ass gun, and would also be my choice! :2gunsfiring_v1:
Or the Colt Defender 1911!
They were out in force last night......quota must be coming very close, like it did last year.
For reference this is a shot from PCH &...
That'll be very useful for newbie float tubers. Makes we want to go out and try it, thanks for all the info.
The only thing I can probably throw...
Great job, Halis are coming in thick. Might have to hit the shore!
Damn dude, this whole time I thought it was UFO's. :rofl:
Not bad, been hearing a lot of good reports out of Catalina.
That thing is a beast......musta been fun trying to twist the tail off of that thing.
That's alot of trekking, die hard!
Wow, wfo halibut is rare. Nice job!
Holy shit, that is a sweet setup.
I honestly can't complain about the 5 bass bag limit, I think the size should have been bumped up to 13". What scares me most is, when will the...
I wouldn't know where to start on fresh water, but why not try the pier?
I think you should take him back to 1981 and leave him there.
I hope this is a joke, because you deserve a better son. Sorry I hate to bash you,...
Wow, I got frustrated just reading your thread. I can only imagine how you felt. I am pretty confident you'll get them on your next trip, that is...
That sounds like a fun trip, nice to have a buddy boat as well.
Saw it parked on PCH in Sunset Beach, clean boat!
I'd say that's an efficient way of burning fuel!
Don't put the link in your url bar...................it infects your computer with AIDS!
That tube always produces for you, plus props on taking new buddies to your spots!
What's that tide app you got?
The trolling motor you have is bad ass if it keeps you on the spot based off of what you dial in, cool feature!
Thanks for the intel, the only...
WTF, I thought it was a joke! Holy shit, I hope PETA doesn't show up to my door in the morning, I just finished spraying a whole trail of ants.
Nice job, I'm sure it felt very rewarding bringing it aboard.
Sooooo that's how you do it...........nice job!
I have a lot of respect for you, I have been wanting to get into hunting for way too long and you my friend have inspired me to get moving....
I remember following el toros posts and if I remember this takes some time and commitment.
Looking forward to following your...
Wow, very nice!
Nice way to kill a couple of hours!
Nice, yesterday was a killer day. I took the kids to HB to enjoy the low tide and I could see the corbina swimming in the waves. Decided to leave...
I wonder, being that the dog I'm guessing is under the age of 16, could you buy it a lobster card and double your limits?
Well that payed off, a couple of big boys in that mix.
Please tell me how I can get my grass that green?
Stan you where a good man, may you rest in peace!
BD will always be missing something without you around.
We have been infiltrated!
Wow, you guys killed it.
Cool boat, looks similar to an Outrage. How's she ride in the chop?
Run Forrest, Run!
Wow, sounds like a fun trip!
It is illegal, plus screws will only scratch a seal, won't deter them from your bait.
Stick to macs or dines, haven't heard much success with squid.
I would suggest you send all your T questions to Mandoman68!
Damn that sucks, but I'd rather come home with one, better than none! This weekend should be good.
Those are some nice yellows!
I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Either way, it will work against us.
Head to the surf in HB.
Grab a light setup 5-12#, carolina rig it with a floro leader and a 1/4-1oz sliding sinker depending on conditions....
I happen to stumble upon this a couple of days ago, and it does look like lisc has gone down, in total. But actual fishing lisc actually went up...
We live in a fucked up world with crazy people all around us, my condolences to her family and friends.
No deep fryer?
I hope your dog pisses and shits all over his house, and rips apart all the dudes furniture that swiped him!
Limits for 4, the one time shitty water actually helps fishing!
Did they give you an honorary DFG badge?
Great write up and an even better build! I miss by Bayrunner.
The one thing I don't miss is having everything balanced perfectly, I'd love to see...
I don't think catfish is oily, but it never hurts to try.
Whatever happened to, customers come first? I don't mind fishing with deadheads as long as you don't think your better than me because you know...
Nice, i'll be there tonight!
Last I heard you can use pelicans on local sport boats for the jackpot!
I was under the assumption that red light cameras are banned in California?
Very cool, I would be hesitant taking my youngens on an offshore trip on a 21fter. Props to pops!
I buy my glow sticks on ebay or amazon when the have deals in bulk, painless! Just make sure you get the large ones, I made a mistake and ordered...
I need some ballasts changed on a few strips of lights at work, Long Beach.
Let me know!
Great job guy's!
:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: You predicted the future!
Where are you located?
I have used my 14 for pretty much every kind of fishing we can do down here. It will get the job done!
During the winter months, if there are no Lobster reports in the inshore section it'll go dormant.
Yup, I just zip tie whatever I am not using and at the end of that rope I went to Home Depot and bought some really heavy bolt nuts and tied the...
Hell mark me down too, sounds like it'll work well!
Good luck guys should be nice weather!
When are we lobstering Neil?
Fuuuuuuck, well I'm out!
See you next year.
Football is rigged!
Dan's the man!!!
This morning it was glass calm all the way to the island, this weekends weather should be awesome.
Nice job on the Halibuts and high five to your son for outfishing you!
Two lobster are better than no lobster, you'll get them, i'm pretty sure...
Wow, that would definitely knock one off of my bucket list.
Those are pretty cool, I'm sure the HB police love you!
FYI, I sold mine on Ebay for $260. This is pretty decent deal.
Figured I'd pass this along, its a pretty good deal!...
Depends on how much I'v had to drink!
Nice boat, what year is the motor? Any pics of it on the trailer, how's the condition? Do you get your boat serviced in Sunset Beach, I think I...
This was a twisted game all around.
This looks like a cool event to get my little girls into fishing, if you could count me in for 2 adults and 3 kids I would appreciate it.
Nice job guys!
I was hoping they would blow it, would have tightened the ranks. :2gunsfiring_v1:
Nice job Kevin! I'll come pick you up Jim, we'll go together.
Wow, I was an idiot and forgot to pick this week.....
ATL, wow that was a great finish!
Still in it...
Great boat, great crew, good food, have fun!
I have heard tons of stories, capts. usually go through the whole drill locking down the boat........ 90% of the time they never come up. My guess...
That's a bad ass rod!
My heart felt condolences to you and your wife. God has his reasons for everything, your son is one the lucky few that gets a free ride to heaven....
That's a bad ass boat you got Neil.
21 dodos, damn that's nice! Did you get the chance to use tempbreak.com?
I like the rebuy idea, maybe next year?
Gotta love those cluster fucks, nobody seems to remember what to do as soon as the fish bite.
Thanks for the props guys, it was nice to finally get out there and not have a shitty trip. We did our best to get the fish to cooperate.
Ended up buying a MXL 2 speed from Charkbait, excellent reel! Brought up a jackpot Yellowfin with this reel.
After debating on which boat to jump on the last minute, the consensus seemed like the Prowler out of Fisherman's Landing was going to be my best...
I am on the Prowler as we speak and just loaded up on decent (big) baits, Buzz is not on board, Fuck! Crew seems like they are doing a good job,...
Wow, nice job! Did you fish today?
Sounds like you miss your pilot house.
Open to shimanos... Under $200
Yup it's the black one, don't confuse it with your hot pink one!:rofl:
I'm looking for a single speed or two speed. I am leaving on a trip this Sunday and I can't find mine. This will have to be done today or...
Prowler it is!
Haven't been on either one of these boats. I left it to the last minute and it seems like these are the only boats leaving Sunday night. I can...
That's what you call a killer trip!
I'm interested in the second lot, Im in HB! PM if these aren't sold.
That thing looks like it weights 1/2 ton, nice fish!
Killer story, sounded like an epic feeling going from zero to hero. I can tell you I wouldn't have even considered sawing off my line to make it...
I commend you on a job well done! :appl:
That's a nice setup!
Thanks tuesssssssssssssss, Payment sent!
Do you have a paypal account? Who writes checks these day?:rofl: Thanks for coordinating all this for us.
An empty patty doesn't last long! Nice fish
Lots of skunks, but at least you spent 1/10th the fuel of everyone else, I'd call that a good day!
My go to setup is my Torium 14 spooled with 50# braid and 20# mono with your choice of floro topshot. Paired with a Rainshadow Rclb80l cut down 6"...
I could only imagine your feeling seeing that water in the cuddy, good save!
Is Manny still your compadre?
Wow, killer trip!
You got a killer deal Jim!
Great first rod, I'm kinda in the same place. I screwed up my epoxy and have been procastinating about fixing it. Out of curiosity what grit sand...
They are around!
Throw me an offer if you want these things!
I have two vouchers that I will not be using, these are good on any of their 3/4 days trips. These...
Thanks for the intel!
Good job kid, nice looking console!
I owned a 17, fun boat. My word of advise, slow and steady.
I heard the wedge got over 30 ambulance calls over the weekend.
That sucks big time, but I hope these weren't just laying in the bed of your truck?
Pretty sad to resort to that level, unfortunately it was a mental issue that he did not know how to deal with. A lot of people are too embarrassed...
By catch of a lifetime!
Wow, based off that video; a 100# fish yeilds ~30# of meat.
I noticed when I brushed on the cp that the tread was moving, I learned the hard way to be very gental in the brush strokes.
That thing is a beast! What's the deal with the two jigs?
Hahahaha.....like a boss!
Pretty innovative, and practical. Any pics of finished rods with this application?
Thanks again for taking the time to make these write up's....
Makes me want to take up spearfishing! Sweet video.
Wow, dorado in my backyard! Doesn't get better than that.
I doubt a pb would dump all that stuff overboard, thanks for doing what you didn't have to do Mike. Your due for a nice limit.
How does the old saying go......two fish, one spear! Cool video.
If its glass out you can take any size boat out! Your limited to early morning, or after 3-4. But all this can change pretty quick, you would have...
Wow, I would pay triple the cost to guarantee a trip like that. Wishful thinking!
I know pretty dumb!
I knew it wouldn't be worthy, my intention was to slap a coat of epoxy and take it fishing no matter how it looked, and...
Wow this is all great information that will make my next build a lot better. Thanks for all your help guys. I might take you up on that offer...
South sucked yesterday, we should have stuck it out in Dana. But then again those jumping dodos wanted nothing to do with our baits.
That was an awsome write up, thanks!
I knew I shoulnt have done my epoxy last night, now I know why! Just like fishing I'm either a day early...
Wow.........Tuna, dorado and yellows..........Where do I sign up?
Nice trip, lets hope this sticks around until tomorrow!
I have been working on this rod for close to over a month and a half and everything went great, beyond my expectations. I finally...
That thing looks bad ass!
Killer trip, hopefully my similar trip this weekend turns out the same.
That's what makes fishing so exciting and keeps us coming back for more!
I can imagine the sinking feeling after all that hard work, those BT guys obviously know their stuff but fishing is fishing. Looking forward to...
I'm guessing they came in with their flag flying! Regardless 14+ hour fight they for sure had the right setup! Nice job guys
Local dodos............exactly what we have been waiting for!
Finally a report with some intel, great write up. You definitely have put in your...
Talk about detail, I can't even comprehend how to start trim band work like that. Nice!
Whoever does this is going to increase the value of their now famous boat!
I'm surprised your still boatless Travis, what gives?
Looking for newer reels!
So I am down to my last few guides and ran out of thread at the worst time ever. I was hoping to finish my first build finally. But, like...
Looking for offshore stuff, pm me what you have.

Great party, nice fish!
I know a person, who knows a person who's uncles cousin's brother from another mother that can actually...
Turned out to be a nice trip, but I can't tell if you were more excited about the fish or the free soda?
Where's the motor?
Wow, that's clean!
What's the beam on that thing?
Sorry to hear about your loss Mike, lets hope those things stick around and don't bolt back down south.
Sounds like good times!
Did you clean them out? Or do they still have some in stock? Can these be ordered online?
Either I got really lucky or you guys are giving me a big head, I am going to go with very lucky. I did tons of research before attempting this...
Thanks guys, I just finished putting the first coat of epoxy and the red and green are making it pop but yet still look subtle, pictures do it no...
Dude, its called fishing!
I don't know why, but everything went smooth last night........
It was pretty cool seeing it come alive! Not bad? This is my first time...
So that's where my tax money goes!
Did homeland search your boat or did they just take the thing and leave? Did you take any trophy pictures...
Wow, an in and out Dodo trip. Nice!
Pick a day with good current and go fish the bait barge! Plastics, chovies....
These are all valid points, I think my problem is one of my threads is made by a different manufacturer so my guess is they are different sizes....
That turned out clean!
I like the thick epoxy look, what kind do you use. How many coats?
Logo is sick, name is very catchy.
My first post on this board started off by asking if I was in over my head, well I think I am! This is my first build and I think I am a bit...
I love seeing pictures of Dorodos all lite up, nice job guys.
FYI, upload your pics from your computer to tinypic.com and then post the unique link that tinypic gives each one of your images. Pretty simple!
When you rip the hook out of a fish's stomach this is the result!
Man I'm pumped..............It can only get better!
I think I figured it out, once I completely understand it I will make my own video to help newbies out like me.
I placed my first ever build order with acidrod and received it the next day! Quickest Internet purchase I have ever received!
Good call! That looked like a great trip.

That thing is bad ass, nice detail!
I want to build something like this, I am starting to like these theamed rods!
Those lines are perfect, great job as always!
Now for the newbie question, how do you get those single strand lines into that wrap?
So I ended up purchasing a RCLB80L from acidrod.com. I am amazed, I sent the order in yesterday around noon and received my order today at noon!...
I call bs on all you people saying your beginners! I am a new to this whole rod building thing and I can see doing this kind of work maybe after...

Nice work, the marbling looks pretty cool! I like the grips, great setup in general!
Wow, amazing craftsmanship!!
Wow, thats a beast!
Niiiice! Great looking rod, simple and sleek.
So, I am either going with a RCLB80XL or RCLB80L still not too sure. But, leaning towards the RCLB80L only because if I want to use a 30# topshot...

First I would like to thank all those BDer that have helped this newbie!:beerbang:
I recently purchased an old Pac Bay Power Wrapper for a...
I call bs on these being your first rods :rofl:
Actually, you motivated me even more to start my first build.
Damn dude I don't know what's crazier, you making the crossing in a 12' pool toy or finding all those floaters! Regardless, nice!
Nice job Mike, you have been loading up on the seabass since your dry spell!
:eek2: Where's an m80 when you need it?
They don't expire!
Im out of the loop here, but it looks like Mr. Bill stepped on a few toes! Kudos to Bill for manning up and apologizing.
Ok so I think I narrowed down my search.
I will be purchasing everything from acid rods to make things simpler. But I need your help. I decided...
If your fishing off of a boat you really don't have to cast it farther than everyone else, the key is to pick the liveliest bait and cast it out...
You calling me out? :Dynamite:
Ok it was my stupidity, I was surfishing at night (hence NIGHT, so I have some kind of excuse). I start to put...
You got it, that'll be my next reel. But, the Torium will always be my goto reel!

Wow Scott, those are pretty cool grips! The unfinished product looks like a nightmare. I have to give you a lot of credit for those being your...
Ok, so I have had a push towards no going the hand wrap way but, I think being new into the whole building state I would like to go the hand wrap...

We fisherman are in debt to you, thanks!
Can you pm me your telephone# so I can put you on speed dial? :rofl:
Any pictures of the boat on the trailer? What kind of condition is the trailer in?
71 sounds nice, can we stick with that one?
One is better than none! That's cool of Jeff to split up the catch, looks like a nice sheep mixed in that batch.
And he still hasn't learned his lesson!
Your due for something nice Mike, what was the water temps?
"Westcoaster" is Bayrunner model.
Nice to see the kids get out.
Great save with the improvised reeling!
If you watch closely Dean flips you off when you land the fish and almost threw you overboard! Nice fish B, that looked like fun. On the...
Damn dude, you sound very encouraging!
I heard Saluki popped out of the cake?
Both will work!
Fuck that!:rofl: You don't actually move in the scenario do you? Please don't misunderstand me, I am all about giving divers their space but a...
Great to see local tackle shop upgrade rather than downgrade! Good luck in your remodel.
It's "ok" if you know what your looking for, basically a bunch of used stuff. It's not huge but if you want to stock up on irons they have tons.
Very nice, I did something similar to my garage!
I have tons of pegs for your peg board if you want some, pm me!
Thanks for the valuable information! Nice fish, and nice way to reward yourself with a dip in the big pool.
Nice fish, but those big sandys taste like shit!
20#, big hammer, no gaff..........well deserved! Nice job.
She said please! hahahaha
Man that sucks, RIP! My condolences to the families and may events like this remind us that the water is in no way our friend!
To answer the OP question;
What is this?
It's a big motherfucker!
Now that's a bad ass trip!
Shit, Saluki is pregnant?
I guarantee you that someone already snagged it!
Your name suits you well............I feel for you!
A Thresher off the jetty, well done!
You know if it wasn't for your kids present you wouldn't have caught those.
Good job kid for getting your pops on the fish!
This is pretty cool! How's the cliche saying go, "like father, like son". You definitely fit the mold!
I was always told to stay away from the FORCE!
Nice grade fish, no dorado?
First, I must applaud your drive :appl:
Second, I must applaud the fact you actually brought one aboard :appl:
Third, FUCK YEA! :beerbang:...
Man that's a killer deal!
The squid are looking up and laughing! :rofl:
The new blue lights are going to look sweet!
HB is your best bet!
I am going to go load up on the white plastics, thanks for the report....s!
Labeling is your friend! Or just follow what Saluki did and just connect then start to pray.
Shit dude, I would be stoked as well! Congrats!
Nice job Brandon and Curt! How long was the roundtrip?
Now that's a fishing trip!
That picture of the dorado all lite up is really cool, hopefully they get close enough this year!
Good luck finding someone, that seems like a fun paddle!
Whatever you guys do, I highly recommend to NOT use spectra. Travis can shed some light on that one. :rofl:
Bad ass on 12#, but why in the hell would you use light line for seabass if you already lost one (I take it on light line?)? Are you trying to set...
That's a really cool feature, what kind of coin did you have to drop on that setup?
You guys killed it!
Wow, that thing is a beast. Congrats on catching a fish of a lifetime with your pops on your side!
That's a shit load of rays.
You have a downrigger on your yak? Sounds like a well rigged yak, any pictures?
Thank god your alright. Did you notify anyone? Did you get medical attention? You don't want to blow something like that off!
Some is better than none, nice job Mike!
Drag it onto the beach, pull the hook, take it back to the water and let him swim away.
I commend your efforts! :appl:
Dude, big brother can track you from your house to your work then on your way home to the strip club. It's nothing new, there are...
Nice write up, congrats on losing your virginity!
Fuck the seabass, that's a nice flatty!
Congrats on a great accomplishment!
Hope he has a great trip lined up and has a speedy recovery, him and his family are in my prayers.
Cool toys, but where is the helicopter?
Now we know where the phrase "eye fuck" came from!
We need a dislike button on BD! Mods?
Your pretty close to a closed zone, Nice catch!
Should have speared that fucker when it got boat side!
Cool plate dude!
Mako sashimi? Is that safe?
Looks cool, nice to have knowledgable people here on BD!
Holy shit those pictures made me nauseous! If you told me I was guaranteed to catch Tuna and Dorado I wouldnt have jumped on that boat! I'm...
Did it fit in your bait tank?
What kind of bait where you using?
How long did it take you to fillet?
How did the roe taste?
Take home what you think you can eat, you determine what that size is! Just make sure there is no milk running down its chin.
You want to bleed...
Check the itenerary they are usually on the money, than book trip with the time gap! What will suck is if his fishing trip doesn't go as planned...
Holy shit, I would take that over a WSB!
Holy shit B, when are you starting a charter operation? I'd like to be your first customer.
Rewarded nicely for your workout!
I don't think I have ever been on a cattle boat and not smelled weed!
Can anyone elaborate as to what happened?
Great report, awsome fishing! You got the surf dialed in. Today is officially the day when HB becomes a hell hole until Augest, a beach with...
Very nice local tanker with tons of intel that most other reports lack, thanks and congrats on a very nice fish! Double hookup? Did Jim lose his?
Went through hell for a nice reward, well done!
That's a trip I would have loved to be on, light load with fish after fish getting hooked up! Perfect timing Marcus, lets hope this stays consistent.
FYI: Per the old man that was working the fuel dock yesterday morning..........HH Fuel dock closing, is a rumor.
Nice job getting on the fish!
