Great story thanks. Saturday we trailered to shelter island to check out the new ramp and fished those yellow fin..we finished with 6 fish pretty...
Good dodo day!
Is that what an albacore looks like? I forgot. Great frport thanks
Think back. The fillet regulation was written when local blue fin were under 50lbs. How can you fillet a 200plus fish in 5 pieces.?
Dont buy or fish green label IGFA from Segaur. We know it breaks at a lower weight but I dont like how it ties.
Split tail tuna
I see three fish and I wear bi-focals
They always eat the long iron.
Albacore are discontinued
Fish with Mike.
Heading back from Cat. right now. Wow super day 40 inch WSB on the morning and a 25# YT on the last sardine. Dam its hard to type in a bouncing...
How were the conditions. That wind on the outer waters has been blowing for days
Great pile of fish. We are thinking of running out there with a 26 Skippy but worried about the weather.Any weather reports from others ?
I dont see the boats name in the photos. Hows WET DREAM ?
When they cross the border their IQ goes up.
Day and a half trip for me also. Be on the water for the sundowner bite.I like sleeping on the way back and waking up in the early morning as we...
Listen to to the crew! They fish more than we do.
Stay away from the IGFA green label. It sucks and not because of break strength. It does not tie the same.
Thx for the report. Typical blufin hide and seek.
Albacore has been discontinued.
Putting a fish on a scale will make it smaller!
Is that a broom sticking out of the bag?
Nice slab! double door matt.
Eat the heart? HELL NO. Do what I did .Lie and say it is your second tuna.
Nice bag o fish bro
Not shitting you but I have seen BSB puke up a whole lobster when coming to the rail. (After it pooped )
With careful planning you could have an all time blast at the Lupe. I have fished there only twice for Jack Pot fish each trip.First trip was in...
Drink beer for good!
Sweet. Those look well fed right?
Bring a passport
Yes those are fatties. If they are eating that well then they might stick around?
Leaving tonight from Newport. Should we hit Cat for squid? In your opinion
Ok . Thanks for the reply. Thought I was done for the season but maybe not
Are they sending the kite back out while being hooked up? Seems like they would need to have a couple going at a time to land that many in 11 hours.
Holy COW batman!
Nice fat one. No shame having help on a fish like that. Deck hands are wanting to land every fish hooked
Shit happens but look behind you before you cast. The water won't go any where.
We were on Tanner bank Sunday . Caught one nice yellow on a belly hooked mackerel. A 10 foot thesher shark put on a show slapping bait fish with...
Great trip for you bro. I can see how the flat could fly out of a Dodo's is lip as he launches.
Thanks .couldn't view the pics
Flat fall or bait? Daytime or Vampire fishing?
Super good report. Thank you!
Those are yellow fin. Limit is 10 per angler
Right in the Specific ocean
6 seconds? I hate to wait
Hard work standing at the rail that long, but thats blue fin for you. Remember albacore fishing when you could hang around waiting for a jig stop...
Tied to the receiver for 7 hours sounds like jail.
Stop it! She is going to a weight watchers meeting today. The water will bounce back and give us till November.
Good job on the release. Marlin seam to be around town these days.
That sucks. Hope you find it..
Dice dodo dude!
I agree there are no points for origionality.
All fish caught in the SPECIFIC ocean.
We will be out there tonight. We were 12miles out of Newport last night and a water pump failure had us pushing the rope back to newport. Spent...
So cool to watch that shit. Just got back Monday want to go right back out there!
Those are a better grade yellow fin than we have seen in other posts. When are they coming to town? Is homeland security guarding the border?
I use the double uni most always . I always inspect it with my eye and test it with my hands.Had 1 failure in 5 years..I like the look of that...
Great report and photos dad! You can find the missing kelp patty , it will be strait up wind.
Crazy mixed bag of fish. Are those sierras?
We are gunna need a bigger camera!
They land in the ocean. They spend their life at sea and return to land only to breed
I bought one of those 15 years ago at the Fred Hall Show, it sits in a tackle try to this day. I'l have to give it a try!
Water looks like a lake already. Good for you and thanks for the report.
Surprised you can lift you arms after a day like that. Way to go bro.
Yes they will brighten up after eating powdered mashed potatoes. Bait gotta eat too.
How late did you fish? We fished Friday worked hard from 4am on. Boil here boil there but no bites all day. Put the kite up at 430 pm got bit at...
Totally aToad yellow fin dude!
You might find tuna between the islands. They dont bite real well though. Landed a 248 # kite fish behind clemente yesterday evening.
Mix canned cat food with oatmeal and a little sea water. Spoon it out behind the boat if the mackrel are nearby they will come.Another trick it to...
Thanks for the report..water is cleaning up in the channel lets hope the fishes come to swim in it....soon!
Day and a half trip over an overnight.worth the extra money to fish till dark ,eat,shower then sleep all the way in. I'm usually well rested and...
Photo needs a frame.
Long ride pushing the rope. Years ago off Oceanside we were needing vessel assist. The call came back the guy was past the arches bridge in...
The OP was being a good sport. Good for him.
Typical early season dodo's. Lock jaw until all the small bait is gone.They will let their guard down soon. And yes they always eat the long iron!
I as looking at AIS on my desk top last week one of of the vessels off San Diego was identified as a Canadian warship
Big fish bro!
One beats none. Thx for the report
We will pray for you. Macos are psycho
Great report .thanks
Thx for the info. SAN Diego don't play around.
Nice dam fish
That's fishing.slow ,no go.but WHAM then it happens.
Nice group of fishes
Saw them on AIS near clemente
Its not a competition unless I'm winning.
We fished San Nic on the El Dorodo. Missed out on the epic bite on YT and WSB. Watt rolled. Still returned with near limits of bottom grabbers.....
If we are going to call it SPORTfshing then the fish has to win sometimes. Thank for the report.
Albacore has been discontinude.
Word of yellows showing right in LA Jolla. Look around there. Good luck!
Good work! One better than none and on the troll.
Always be fishing even if it's for a ride.
Good work bro.
Nice fishes bro
AKA a nugget . Compliment intended
Nose hook and slow troll those .guys
Its a weather forecast weather it's accurate depends on the weather.
Years ago I almost was that guy. But noticed the low bridge just in time to change lanes to where there is more clearance. It was a hassle pushing...
Don't say tip. OMG
FRESH MEAT!! thanks for the the fresh report.
Yes thats a big Billy goat
How many bugs in the bugga?lol
Yummy flyer sandwich...watch out for the hook!
Fresh meat! Nice to read a NEW fish report
Albacore has been discontinued
But the beer was cold right?
5 year suspension? Must feel like the death penalty.
Fat lady is MIA
That is a really nice cabezon..
For Cory thats a short story for a long trip. Thanks for the report . Good luck in 2018
From Costa Mesa we can get to Baldy in less than an hour.. Our boxers love running in the snow up there.
Christmas tuna! What a great gift. New years day in one week, 2018 could start with bluefin on the menu.
Think thats out front of point loma. Heard it called the howler buoy also
Though I use the butt hook alot I learned that blue fin bite on the retreive so nose hook for bluefin.
Sure beats working. Oh you said that..
Nice fishes. Nice to to hear Clemente is holding..
Start with 20# #2 circle hook flyline sardine.
We were there on a skipjack. Landed two before sunup. Then the bite stopped. Whated to make a move but the anchor was stuck. While trying to...
Planning a trip out there on Saturday...hope we find something that wants to play
Note to self. Never mention tipping on this site.
Cant please everyone but good bottom fishing is still good fishing right?
Those look heavy
Give them a dose the night before. Then another before they board the boat. In my experiance it works way better that way
Its against the rules but it is allowed. Just dont get stupid drunk right?
They have a bumper sticker for that.?
Yes the french bull shark. I hear they are very rude.
Me 2 . less weather and more room out there.
8 keepers... good job ..enjoy dinner
Whew! You were close to being flamed
There are some boats that quit doing jackpot because of the drama. Long range jackpots are weighed on the dock after galley tab and tipping so...
Or release into hot butter?
Longer but maybe not heavier
Liberty or San Diego
keep your beer cold and your catch colder
Bam done! Now ice em down clean the deck drink a beer. Ok?
concur with your estimate about 150#. those buggers are girthy
if you return with tuna fishes the weather will feel to be at your back
please bring a couple schools of albacore with you. I forget what they taste like.
beautiful grade of yellow tail at SCI. They bite small lighter gear a little better IMO.(went four for five on 15#test for 25# fish) AND flying...
holy shit batman that's huge! POW!!!
I fished with Matt on the Pac Star maybe 5 years ago. He was pretty cool and we loaded the boat with yf
from the title I thought the dead bait was cut into chunks and Tuna were blowing chunks.
is that your boat in the 5th picLOL
we pulled up on the fleet and parked next to the Relentlness on Sunday they were hanging two on the bow. We bagged four big yellows and a 20# bft...

wow looks like full speed fun !
fish was very pissed off. angler did an awsome job.
bonita is fun when its biting good. Snagged an 8 pound yellow tail at the 14 bank on a pink tuna clone. then went to Cat hoping for more but hung...
great fish and photo bro.
eat the heart.?....no yuck....seen super sick people after they ate the bloody thing
great day . fun fishing for hungry dodos
me too. was thinking that area as well fot this week??
is that a fresh batch of fish moving up? Hope so
nice six pack
What works for me is a dose of bonine the night before and another the morning of fishing.
Tax man is the shark. Sealions are bums
Love that boat . Lots of great memories
Holy shit those are big fish. I heard a rumor of a wahoo landed off dana point. Maybe bigfoot next.
But did you wait 30 minutes after eating lunch before going in the pool?
Clean water that way.. im suprised to hear the Hidden bank area isnt holding fish? Thanks for the report..
Your boat lives indoors? How great is that? Nice fish too
Wow just wow.
NO....grabbing a beer is rewarded with a bite didnt you read the post
What is the limit on golden clam?
I agree, Flyliners photos are always frame worthy.
Albacore have been discontinued in So. CAL. for over 10 years...man i miss them buggas
Nice tail for sure... good work
Full speed albacore . Great video love seeing the young angler get so much attention and landing a couple after losing the first one.
The Specific Ocean?
We fished berween Dana point and Oceanside for zero bites.the weather was no issue. Actually very nice out there.
Shit howdy. Good job
Cookie cutter shark..
Come on down. It's not full speed yet but shaping up. If it was me I would fish Catalina. WSB are haunting the island with mixed grade of...
Better to be smart ass than a dumbshit!
Correct answer is "no this is my second tuna" never eat the heart....
Fishingguy led the parade out of the gate. We didn't land a tuna till August. Happy with what we got though
Popular sportfish that was discontinued about 9 years ago
How was san nic on day 2?
We were there on a 26 skipjack . Weather was just great. We got one bite and landed a 100 pounder .
Sounds a bit snotty. The fish dont care though
Saw the THUNDERBIRDS from the 133 .toll road on the way home from work today. Very cool to see that out the windshield
Grammer police are out there..beware
First tuna for you bro! Right on
Try it you'll like it!
Your reports are aways great to read. Your photos always show a clean lite up fish in perfect lighting.Nice pics
Like my mom said if you cant say anything nice then shut the FUCK UP!
Taro worked on the San Diego as a second captian then ran the boat when Ryan took off time for the birth of his child. Seams his good work was...
A scale makes the fish smaller
AAA drivers Can lose their job for accepting tips . So tip them on the low down.
The fleet is respecting the residential neighbors by not dropping smelly noisy fishermen off in the middle of the night.
Very fishy dude. TARO helped me alot on my first long range trip. Then 10 years later he greets me from the deck of the San Diego. I asked him if...
I could use a trip like that..chasing big blue fin ate up most our season. Hope the doesnt turn cold and send them south when the are finally...
Was Taro on the SanDiego before? And the American Angler before that?
Good work. No complaining about a 2 fish limit with fish like these!
Catch smaller fish so they fit in the file?
Oldest trick in the book, ask the guys who is catching. There are some know it alls that would never do that.
Im no capain either but maybe drift fishing in the area where the fish are??? I would have been weeping if I had to endure that .
Sad that your great story with a better video has six replies only and the two post at the top of the page have 29 replies and are about...
Nice write up. Very cool of you to hand off a bit rod.
Good work for a few bites. Sofa fishing was slow for me but I cautch some zzzzs
Cant believe that boat went down..Its a bleeding fortress. Hopeing for good news quick.
That was fast. Wish the tuna would bite like that.
We fished strait mackrel last weekend got around 10 bites. Landed three.50# to 90
Hard to leave home without mackrel. We put them with sardines all the time and for sure there are casualties.If you dont stuff the tank to much...
Sharing is caring...great time for all
Take patience with 20#. Let the fish pull till he is tired then stick him.
Fish are so big they wont fit in the file?
Always the best bait always florocarbon till it doesnt matter
Up to my eyeballs with information but what dont got is blue fin dammit....
Thanks for not posting the selfies
They always eat the long iron!
One in the box beats me.good job working in that crowd
Bought a full?scoop in oceaside yesterday guy gave only four small dips. Seamed like a small half scoop.
GO FOR IT DUDE!! Just b ed prepared. VHF RADOIO cell phone. Fly a flag so boats can see yoi behind the swells.Pick a day when you can be really...
Last Sat. Morning the nerth jetty where we usually load up mackrel was a complete blank on the meter. We moved to tne south jetty in front of CDM...
Yes larger hooks! Just spent a couple hours and a couple beers tweeking the hooks on some of my jigs
33 Riveiera? You shoud find some friends with bait ,I mean boat like that...Good luck
I was just suggesting to my buddy to attach contact info to his gun and float
Rambo on the Cortez said to always have a rubber in your pocket in case the fish are biting a little deeper
I remember a football coach at Servite highshool named Cory Visser in the 70s. Is that you?
Strippers are best targeted with wallet bait
nice , nice, very nice.
I would suspect a sealion got the belly, a shark usually takes the tail
is that Kevin with you
buy a new scale!! that fish looks huge
looks like a bluefin to me also
this wind event might be the FAT LADY singing. Lets see if the water temp rebounds..
those look like flying fish in the pic. with the hoos.
one fish makes it all worth while. RIGHT? we got ours after burning a ship load of fuel, at the rigs
good job. we should have trolled all the way back to the bait receiver.
Good for you bud. Very stoked for you!
I approve the gaff location, aim for the middle and don't fuck around with a cool head gaff.
hook looks bent.
Best photos when they are freeesh!
that is an impressive pile of fishes!
last pic is a bonito:Beat_Them
last pic. is a bonita
I want one!!:confused:

Last Sunday my buddies landed 7 nice YFT on the sardine chunk at the Osborne. The boat next to them with anchovy got only two. go figure?
Great catch! That wahoo is a torpedo, 100# easy

great looking fish, looks bitchen all lit up
Big fish great job

LOLNext time use chop sticks on the Wahoo !
Saturday on The Sleeper (38 ft. Ocean) we had blind strike on the short corner . Took half of the 80# line jumped twice before running to the bow....
you crack me up!!
was thinking black also?
shark looks kind of pissed off.
those are nice fish, I'll have some of that!
Mexican limits for 3 anglers, good job!
LOLin the specific ocean.. they were out the back of Catalina maybe 499 or Osborn, try there .. good luck
we're fishing Sunday and as of now can't make a decision as to where to go. Maybe its time to fish Mexico for the first time this year. Sure the...
rare catch for sure, in the Atlantic there is a long bill spearfish ,even more rare of a catch.. good job mate!
great video, thanks for the report.. those skarks are fun to watch, the seem quick compared to the other sharks we see.
thanks for showing pics. of the ice.
they're eating chunks of coarse. just to see what they taste like.
bam! there you go....
secret weapon is greenhorns?
the first fish made me think deflate gate? Just teasing you , nice fish buddy.
great looking tunas! NOT FOOTBALLS
your temp gauge needs repair
Thx for the report! Happy fisherman speaks for the Dominator. Go Dominator!
they were not sea sick , conditions were stellar the end of last week
Classic Bill Murry!
Seguar blue label is good however I cant trust the green IFGA Segar stuff,to many failures. Its designed to break at its labeled test however it...
RP knott. Is that a Royal Polaris knott?
These waters are stacked with fish and there are more moving in. Best fishng of the year is ahead of us.
Weather was perfect. We manage a large dodo on sardine and a small yt on the long iron. Stopped on at least 20 kelps for slow action. We stayed...
yes freeze it .
??san diego boats are posting BIG numbers in their reports. Its not even close to winding down.
Are those big eye skipjack!
looks like yt fishing should be good in the future with all that spawn1
when you catch your first tuna just lie and say you caught one before and then don't eat the heart. I've seen people get VERY sick from eating it
Had the same deal on saturday til we started soaking chunks. Scratched three yf for three guys went home smiling.
good work son
start fileting fish and see who shows up.
Great attitude on the whole boat. The angler was ready for what happened and resumed the fight. I HIS defense that gaff is short.
Thanks for the report. I was thinking of fishing that area .
yes that's likely the situation, Ive been on sport boats when the captain will fire up the engines just to kick the bait out from under the boat,...
Think theres a video on another post
Troll marlin jigs only. They at least are biting.
One IS better than none.
Slow troll mackrel and be ready with the iron.
Frame that pic with the gaff in it. I mean it!
Couldnt stop reading that. Funny shit....
that fish makes you look thin, I'll remember to stand next to a butter ball tuna!! lol great job buddy
Good work searching for your fish. With these nice grade fish up here I don't see a need to fish Mexican waters.
One stop shopping
Not a schoolie.Nice fish
Big boat equals big brain,right? Or just big wallet...
You got some and your crew member his first yf.Good job.Good tip for newbies always have multiple bait sticks ready to go, tie hooks etc. between...
Albacore is discontinued
Your right , I caught a 15 # yt at the same moment my buddie speared a 15# yt on a kelp last week.
So he went over the side after seeing whitey, big balls. Also a 14# dodo is a good fish
class act on the hand off. You made that guys day, I bet.
A face to face is in order...
yeah but its fun to watch... last Friday we had an 11 foot great white shark on the stern just off the domes. it sounded before we could get a photo.
I've had excellent bait the last 8 trips??? my luck may change tomorrow...
Yesterday I spent 2.5 hours on a 57# tuna on 20 pound,ouch!! Today I went again and left the 20# outfit at home. Got bit on 25 ,30 and 40.USE THE 30
Holy shit what sealskinner said.
Go fly a kite and see what happens...great catcht in tough conditions....
flathead ate the flathead
Use your radio to locate onother skiff ..then share a full scoop. Could work?
Great looking group
If you look at posts from days prior you might figure out the location. Im 90% sure where those were caught. We dont need another parking lot out...
Trophy yellow tail
Got one! Nice tuna
Tito could be the bouncer
she is holding that tuna like she has done it 100 times. first time fileting?? should have been a surgeon
free spool and clicker on as soon as the crew gaffs it. I've saved several fish that bounced on the wrong side of the rail because I was in free...
have one tied up all the time and drop it under kelps, no bites yet but I don't expect a guppy if it does produce
One fish two fish dead fish blue fish
My jaw dropped when I saw those photos!
don't need no stinking plotter!
bam!!! got some. good job
holy smokes great trip in our front yard even
One is better than none, good work
Great fishes for you. Good luck on the tourney!
Great job landing your fish.
Those light hooks are a good trick to get a bite on tuna but yellow tail will straighten it.
Good work guys!
your pic answers the question really well
I've mange a couple fish here and there but no big score yet . its coming just keep trying.. good luck!!
I need to learn how to cook up those collars! Thanks for the report and great photos.
Good work. 5 miles out. Was the water green?
Thank for the report it makes me optomistic. Have a two day on the books this weekend and NOAA predicts a big blow. Hoping they are wrong. Is...
grab a rod and a jig and get your ass out there!! I've caught Yt from a surf board off the camp ground back in the 90s
like your style!!
double edge sword? If we catch a lot we are depleting the ocean if we don't catch then we have already depleted the ocean. Am I paranoid??
good luck finding a ride!! happy birthday to you
Fished SW of Oceanside late morning after servicing the father in laws old boat for five hours. Replaced battery cables and plugs. Was convinced...
commercial guys are earning a living like the rest of us. Just hope they get their quota quickly and head on .
great report. Ill be fishing three days in the next week, I guess I'll be throwing the blue surface iron,right. thanks for the info.
fine young lad, great fish too
the yellows there are tiny but if you want calicos then go
Wrong .it goes like this. Im having a problem with my eyes__ I cant see working tomorrow.
Great attitude, had fun.Most of fishing is planning and waiting,I've learned to enjoy the waiting.These fish will bite soon!
Good job paying attention to the meter . Great hail Mary story
GO FISH ALREADY!
Got one! Great fish
somtimes the rod holders out fishes me.
I should hit the gym! look at these monster fish-------OUCH
Elvis is in the house!
salt on the ice creates an endo-thermic reaction
karma will reward you
nice tail, bitchen weather behind you
After two break offs putting one on the deck is the best fix! Great looking fish
I heard a couple weeks ago that Mexico was going to suspend commercial bluefin fishing.I didnt believe it! Bullshit in my book 2
Like the picture of the GPS numbers. Thats a good area to start searching ,they should be popping up here and there this side of the border.
Nice fish there. Enjoy your dinner!
Super job landing that beast. Action like this north of the border comes at a good time. MEXICO announced to the San Diego fleet that starting...
your boat is perfect, it makes the fish look bigger! lol
Holy smokes that's a large model YT. That fish is to heavy to hold toward the camera.
great looking slab of meat there! thanks for the report
They have yet to drop the hammer, I think its still 10 fish limit
good work out there . thanks for the report
fresh meat !! looks like things are shaping up offshore. Thanks for the report!!
thanks for the reminder, I'll try to remember to report after a fishing trip and not to be a dick.
No Tommy moved to the other coast, too bad he was the best. Great cook with no attitude
great ride, Bullard is fun to fish with
,,,, yo, mama,,,,,,,,
I meant no disrespect with my reply, Frank is the man in San Diego. AND nice Bluefin
Lopeste owns an interest in a lot of San Diego boats, he is refered to as" Frank the bank"
I agree ,to me that fish looks well over 40#
they have radar that reaches out there
Wait for it!! I understand your concern ,water temps have dipped and not rebounded yet and tuna is scarce. It should come together in the next month.
If they were all troll fish then the extra room at the rail would have no effect on the fish count
here we go!
1.5 day for all the reasons in previous answers
the wahoo are at the immigration office getting papers
Good Eye! that is Castaways
shit howdy that's a toad! The short top shot on braid is called a kelp cutter rig for the reason you described, good work.
you got the lingo down! the pick, bendo ,cpr, my favorite no prisoners this time. Thanks for the report
Done! saw there is as of now over 500 comments. keep them coming
its like an albacore, both discontinued
Fishy report! Thanks
bendo!!! with halibut backer
caught in the Specific Ocean for sure
Go fish! thats how you find em
E ticket ride, my pool had white caps
next time !
You left out how much to tip an Opah!!
the water temps are behaving strangely , all winter they have bounced back from wind events but this week it seems kike the water is rolling....
isn't that for SARL trout
Every pit bull I've been around has been very friendly. however any dog can bite the problem is that when a pit bull bites the injury is worse.
WOW on the droooper looop
thanks for the report! I should focus on rock fish a little each trip.
nice write up on your trip! Pictures or the food is making me hungry. We fished pyrmid on a private boat Sunday and boated 14 yt in 3 or 4 hours....
its fund raising not law enforcement , they should have a bake sale lol
BSB=big sum bitch
shortfin for sure!? ? But Jason says yellow fin, he should know more than me. nice tunas for sure
Yes nice job with the hand offs
GO FISH that's how you get them. Good job
thanks for the report, someone like you will be rewarded for the effort of checking those areas. Soon I expect!
I've fished that boat only once, was very impressed with the whole feel of the boat and the crew is very experienced. I met Taro on the American...
good work on those yellows. I need to get me some!
Great news, assuming the Belle was fishing island YT that puts blue fin close to home
That fin LOOKS plastic to my old eyes??
how long is a rope?
They boat I used became lost in Santa Maria bay, no big deal $30 at radio shack. We all have jigs that cost $30
Albacore is a discontinued item
good idea, I've enjoyed fair weather days on the water without a bite. However bad weather can suck the life out of you ,literally.
Lets hope the migrating fish move past the border early this year so we won't have to pay the extra grease to Mexico
I've used a RC boat to tow baits to boiling yellow tail of Cedros. The drone idea could work
Hook failure , bummer .How large were the beasts?
SCI has yellow tail . long run out there but it could pay off, just check the Navy's closures before you go
i think so IMO
slob, slab, fatty, toad,door matt= nice fish! enjoy dinner!
your right! , its just that when you look the mlpa map it doesn't seem to reflect science, looks like it reflects ecomomics
no the closure is south where the Laguna rich people live, guess they can afford to keep stinky fishing boats off their lawn
like watching a lefty on the golf course
bright colors on that fish.. good job!!~
great big fish there!
I love fishing for and eating Bluefin, however if I were to choose I think I would go to Colonet. The yellows are big and the rock fish is open!
the flat fall works, they get bit on the drop AND the retrieve
some how losing a fish to a shark makes me less angry than to a sealion, right??
TOAD!!!! good job
same for us up off los Alamitos, slow fishing but super nice day and beat the fog to the dock.
thanks for the report. Good for you getting back in 4 hours, a change in weather could turn that into 8hrs!
nice ,fish,thank- you,four the report,
I was wondering same thing
Put Corey's face on a box of Wheaties
dammm.. classic full moon tuna!
that Pelican needs a will work for food sign!
I also noticed the well stocked bar
size Large yellows fat string of reds
great day for ya
actually that moirning report for the Tibute was YELLOW TAIL they ended with way over 100 and later in the day they did get on the Bluefin for...
that's affordable for a shot at blue fin even if its not limit style fishing .
As much as i want to fish the Cortez for blue fin the Collnet sounds like a better trip
you're right Pete I'll behave. We all fish for fun first and food second, there's no fun in being angry. have a great season !
Good work, good idea to hand her off and share the pain!
Peta King getting flamed.!! The cortez blue fin you didnt like looking at were solid fish. Karmas comin back at yaa
nice fish out there, I hve not seen pics of any small fish.
launch is free, pay to park or use free parking lot under the bridge(hassle). ramp is next to the bait next to the fuel next to the harbor mouth....
salas 6x in scrambled egg worked on Saturday

I've heard a story of a long range boat getting its 2 inch anchor rope sawed off by a wahoo and spectra at Alijos Rocks
Great job on true toad yellows. Your boat passed us on your way home as we were working a dolphin school for 8 yft aboard the Sleeper they were...
:DI guess it was worth the gas to trailer down?:D
THE FAT LADY IS AT A WEIGHT WATCHERS MEETING

lobster and tuna in the same ice chest . nothing wrong with that
your funny. I thought wallet bait was only for titty bars
im going out of Newport sunday to prove it!
shit ain't over

Wahoo fishing out of Dana was a little slow today . 1 pound yellows were full speed.
Thanks for the info.
NO! we put a gag on the bitch
A Picture is worth a thousand sarcastic remarks. If red shirt sees this he may learn something?
toad! looks 30 pounds to me
Men in black
thanks for the report. I saw that flat fall jig work in the same situation(low on bait)
If wahoo and blue man are around why not cow tuna?
that's a shipload of fish right there!
long rangers had some last week
good guess Isaw a large fleet of boats including the RP and the Exel just south of there on Tuesday. green water with picky tuna in it
that area had tuna despite the green water not sure if they are still there because they have been on the move
saw the Excel and the RP between Cat and Clemente on Tuesday. I doubt they were on 10 days though
near the mackerel bank
just off a 2.5 day, the flat fall worked on the bow as well as the large poppers
Whats the limit on Opah?
Never eat the heart yuck!
Good looking fish. Didnt mind seeing it again. Good job. How was dinner?
RAMBO WILL DO THE TALKING WHEN NECESSARY! geat captain
BAM! Great haul
If you thought 20 was fair then I agree with you.Thank you would be a customary response.
Busy deck with 5guys. Good job working together
Thats no Tommy cod! Great catch
Thanks for the positive response! I've fish the lupe with mike on the Star years ago. I also remember being capsized in a Hobie cat in the Molokai...
Chris Dunne reported on fish dope yesterday. He predicts fishable weather. Noaa predicts 10 knot wind Mon and Tues
I love skiff fishing out of oceanside. Otherwise seaforth
I was going to make a remark about tipping and stuff but forget that ,who is the blondie?
Noaa predicts 10 knot wind on Monday. Yes I know they can be wrong but Im going fishing hell or high water
ouch! leave on a 2.5 Monday night please tell me it will be OK
you described the conditions on Labor Day perfectly , it was tough out there and the bait was the best I've seen all season. We got our first...
Great job putting them together with the tuna.
then 80 ft is to close for them to come to a private boat
Me believer, awesome catch! There was a radio report from someone on the 209 reporting a wahoo catch on Labor day
Coasties are awsome
Will be fishing that area Monday. Hoo knows we could be next
I want one!

Sure would like to see the domes in the back ground. BUT that is a wahoo and that is a fresh wahoo wherever it is
troll the banana?

Great story, like your style leaven em hanging to keep the school close
always bring your good luck with you either fresh or frozen. haha
Went out 30 miles on a 18 foot boat yesterday,we were worried about the swell but it was really nice out there. But your looking at BIG WEDNESDAY!...
I fish the same boat most always and know what to expect, however I miss the days when the crew was the same trip to trip.
great job, light line in more funner!!
So thats what an albacore looks like
YES , the rod goes under the left armpit. NO ,never eat the heart!
Limits seems to be the norm. Bragging rights come with limits and back by brunch.
never seen a hammerhead hope to soon
100 fish day is what a captain considers good fishing
remember we fish for enjoyment so unless you enjoy being angry try to stay positive and don't get angry( or don't fish) I say this to myself when...
a pair of islands people used to fish around
Fishing close to the pens can cause casualties to the tuna in the pens. The tuna in the pen charges a flylined bait and get fouled up in the net....
auto pilot is a great feature to have, someone needs to watch the wheel.
people who fish seam to have great respect for big sharks and utter disdain for those furry poachers even though both take our catches.I remember...
Its like finding big foot eating a unicorn
no penalty for HIGH sticking in this sport. It doesn't look like the blonde kid is a rookie.
Remember its a big boat there is a lot of room. If you bring it and dont need it is BETTER than needing it and not bringing it.
solid work, a rough ride is more bearable with a catch like that
Always say its your second=never eat the heart
need a beer holder on the other
I get it bluuuuurrrry
the club can be dangerous on a rocking slippery boat, I pull out the gill and put a rag over their eye they quiet down and bleed out
Flippin lake nice condition out there yeserday
Trolled that area sat afternoon for no love. The morning provided a size large dodo and 2 yellow tail on a paddy outside so we were happy.
shark got the motor
key in temp break.com the chart will show the border
Havnt heard' baby killers' in a long time.
Anchor fishing for pelagics take getting the hang of.
Fin looks short could be the angle of the photo
when your motors fail the anchor goes over board if your any where near land
How sick is this season when 3 opah in a report are down the list. And why is the 2009 thread from the exel is up top??
Opah boiling in the back bay
Captain handlebars strikes again! Nice seminar
Good work. Getting worked on the hook makes sleeping a challenge. 18 bft pricless

Holy shit batman!
if you remember last year the fleet met their quota and quit fishing tuna. they were still around tending their pens though.

Welcome to caifornia this looks to be a good season to learn the ropes. There will be alot a of action within range of your boat. Tight lines
Safer than shelter island. Once upon a time we came back from a three day and my cousins yukon was stolen found it in tj the next week .I sttill...
Remember its just a forcast, NOAA isnt always accurate so prepare for the worst and hope the wind is down at least in the morning.
Sorry I was trusting my memory had read the report in the WON. Besides I think Options is a six pack boat
other boat don't have Booger at the helm, I expect it is not a typo
Jenny Craig models!
the long fins skipped So. Cal again! DANG
they might be keyed in on small bait so imitate that . When they eat all the little stuff their menu will change
that boat is the bomb. How many 3/4 day boats have RSW
the reports from the 425 seam to go from zero to hero. great job skipper
Options boated 130 large halibut , the fishing is red hot up there . Better than the skittish tuna below.
yft nice job on the fire drill
Mahi tackle. See billy or chris
Use a sabiki trust me. A 5 year old wants to see a wiggling fish on his line.
the blow boat scores big. nice job out there
the 289 had sardines on kelp
Good to know they could eat a squid . Thanks forcthe report
thanks for the report
the boat steers to the fish nice feature!
bite was wide open in the galley
the fish are getting their passports stamped as we speak. I totally expect tuna and dorado in skiff range from Newport within a week or two.
I release calicos like a lot of other fisherman, however I don't expect other to do as I do. Great job and enjoy dinner!...
concur gold medal performance
go cat special !! comfortable ride right there
Ok being very fair they get a break
If you listen to the people in the video they were laughing at the terrified people in the water.the fishermen are not to blame but what assholes!
If im wrong about that just put me on a sick and flame me
