All good options. Tommy at Catalina Offshore advertises on this site.
Love all the work you did on the boat. Really like the cup holders. My only complaint about my 2510 Parker is the lack of cup holders.
Going to be on water tonight Matt. Give me a call if you're out there
Yeah........too much tide movement can be a problem in the bay. Can't get out this week but let's see what I can do next week Matt.
I been having a pretty successful season so far buddy. We had 17 keepers for three guys last week. We were done by ten pm. Give me a pm and...
I have the same tank on mine and two scoops stays nice all day. :-)
Larmo delivers! Nicely done. Tell your bro I said hello amigo. I gotta get you guys out on the new boat one of these days soon.
I call BS without pics :-)
I'll try them.
I've got one just like it except white hull and a half tower. Fabulous boat. Love every bit of it. The only complaint would be lack of cup...
It's a great deal.
The vest is not included. I may have extra one though
Sent you a response. I'd keep it but the new Parker 2510 is just what I needed
I finally up graded to a real boat so after ten years of the kayak thing it's time to get rid of it.
It's a Cobra fish n Dive. Comes with ultra...
Looking forward to it. Do you want me to see about media or just show up and help the kids? Anything I should bring?
I'm in amigo if you will let me on the boat.
You can't fix stupid
Thanks for offer Doug. However, grandkids are in town so we have been fishing the bay and getting break in hours on the motors out of the way....
Still gotta get through the engine break in period Doug. Still got about four hours left to run motors under 3000 rpm. As soon as that's done...
Let me know next time you are up this way Bert and we will try and get in some fishing
We will get on water soon Troy. Just gotta get through the ten hour engine break in period before I can crank up the RPM's on the motors and head...
Gyros may be next on the purchase list.
Here she is...
I'll try and get pics up today.
Splashing at 10am at mission bay. No bubbly yet but will have a party when time is right :-)
The boat is being delivered this morning. Can't wait. It's being delivered here in SD at 10am. I'm as giddy as a school girl on prom night.
It's a toad of a mossback that's for sure.
Cedros quality yellowtail locally off a paddy. Congrats.
Hey Ali. You are more than welcome to drive boat anytime. I have some expensive stuff on the boat that could drop overboard. But I'll probably...
Check homeowners and boat coverage. Boat coverage may be limited on amount of money available for tackle. Most policies are limited on the...
The boat is finished. Should be delivered Tuesday
Great story and write up. Bummer about the boat. My Parker 2510 is being delivered next week amigo. You know where it will be slipped. Let's...
I'll get some pics soon. Bottom is painted, new motors are hung, auto pilot and electronics are installed, half tower is on, just need to finish...
The new ride is getting closer to being ready. They're painting the bottom and finishing the last bit of install. Should be ready very soon....
Just got back in town. Thanks for the support guys........I think.
See you on the water Alan
Thanks guys. Four more years of this. What was I thinking.. On boat name I'm thinking "Shermanator" or "Board Meeting"
Always an early riser
Haven't had one of those for a while Scott. May have to arrange soon
May not need the vest on the new boat. There is just a little more storage on the new ride
Changed my mind. Having dual 200 yamaha outbards installed instead of the 150's
It's the deep v hull and if they let me I will call in my votes to council from the water ..................I wish.
Waiting as long as I did I had time to figure out what I wanted. Can't wait!!!!!
Finally pulled the trigger and Kevin at West Coast is setting me up with a brand new 2510 cuddy cabin with dual 150 yamahas on the back. Getting...
Nice show. Couldn't agree more with how the show captures what is so cool about Baja. The people and the experience of the travel is almost as...
Nice show this morning. A better looking host and this show would be perfect. :-)
They were midshipman. Large schools of them form out there every year bout this time to spawn
Small halibut is a pop tart. Dink, runt, firecracker. Short Dorado is a neck tie
Any room left to help out on this trip Frank? I need another T shirt. Let me know what I can do to help
Any time Paul.
I am pretty sure the answer is none. I haven't looked to be sure and don't know the names of all the people who work for the Chargers....
So....if the taxpayers are going to spend that money anyway. Why not spend it on a new stadium that will keep the NFL in SD and bring back the...
We will be spending the money (taxpayer dollars) anyway on the stadium. To the tune of 10 to 15 mil a year. Unless we bulldoze the thing then we...
The stadium currently costs taxpayers 10 to 15 million a year. The new plan spends about 7mil a year for thirty years. If you extrapolate 10 to...
The hardest part about looking at the revenue and economic impact of the NFL is that it is just very difficult to quantify just how and when...
This city (taxpayers) are in the hole 10 to 15 million a year on the current stadium. if you extend that out over 30 years you see the 300 million...
Nope. Way before this job. Plus I'm still not a politician. Just surrounded by them
Not like the early days when there weren't as many BD stickers out there. Everyone knew the BD salute.
I remember once on the freeway in El...
We do need more wardens. I've tried the cal tip number and even when I got through no one showed.
I was on the kayak in mission bay a few days ago and there were some shore fisherman fishing close by. I watched this guy and his kid catch eight...
The double Ed's jig is for surface iron halibut fishing. Get it right. The double jigs simulate a school of bait fish the surface halibut find...
I like George's loaner gear idea. I will have to remember that for my next Cedros Trip. I'm always outfitting guys for that one. Good idea George.
It's much easier to pick apart an idea than to create one of your own.
Possibly that long. It could go faster with the proper political leadership at the city, county and state level to speed up the process. I...
There were three options I put forward. High, medium and low density. The rendering of what the site could possibly look like was a rendering of...
I'm still not a politician Carl. Just surrounded by them.

My pleasure. Stop on by......we can talk fishing, new chargers stadium, city politics......whatever. :-)
Going to be manning the CCA booth at Fred Hall on Saturday morning. Stop by......sign up ..........and say hi. Hope to see you all there. It's...
Multiple use stadium surrounded by nightlife, parks, and development. If the deal is right. There will be no reason for the Chargers to leave...
Yep the city dropped the ball on that one. Twice there has been opportunity to do this but you had Mike Aguirre first then Donna Frye was...
Well said but I think you nailed it about the downtown site. Not only would you have to go through the city, the port, and the coastal...
The best part is if you do all this..........you can build a new stadium without taxpayer dollars. It takes vision and understanding that things...
We can develop the Qualcomm site and the Chargers will stay. The city has 166 acres (that's the equivalent of 66 blocks downtown) in the middle...
Cute little fish. Can't believe you let a fish that size kick your ass. Must be getting old.
Congrats on the cow amigo. Nice looking fish
Beautiful ghost and a nice YT to boot. Keep up the reports.
I just saw the green in my Avatar. I'm assuming it still means advertiser/sponsor
Green used to mean you are an advertiser. May mean the same now. Not sure though.
Follow up........ Made some bait tubes and went back to the spot where the sea lion incident occurred. Shortly after I set I see them coming for...
Well done gentlemen. Those dogs can be relentless.
Several years ago at the islands I was in a tug of war with a big knot head over a...
I've never had them bother me when fishing from the yak only when buggin and this was the first time they were so crazy aggressive.
I've been meaning to make some tubes but hadn't had problems with the sea lions in a while. May have to get back to making a couple.
I have never had it that bad before amigo. These guys actually made me nervous. The amazing part was the one determined bug that stayed clinging...
Put the yak on the water last night for a bug hunt. I hit the water just as sun was setting and dropped hoops with just a little bit of light...
Nicely done amigo.
Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while. Glad you boys stumbled across a couple.
I have had a good year so far but the last trip was a struggle to find em. the beginning of the season was great though. It started strong but...
Keep at em Matt. My two biggest bugs this season (5 and 7lbs) came from new spots.
Let me know when you want to go out.
Usually out side the bay.
Possibly Paddling out Sunday night Spyder. You want to paddle along?
The best way to vacume seal a whole bug is to remove antennas and legs and cut off sharp points that will puncture bag. I then lay some paper...
I got a call from him yesterday and he was telling me all about how cool his friends thought what he did was. I'm sure he will be buggin me to go...
The kid will be coming back around Christmas time Rich. I'll definitely give you a call for that trip.
My grandson is in town visiting from Sedona Az. He has been buggin me for a while now to take him out to catch lobster so last night was the...
MB is slowing down. The first week of the season was very good. I got two limits with a five and 7 LB bug. Since then slow and short.
Time with dad is priceless. My pops couldn't make our last annual outting to Cedros because of health. Every trip with your Dad is to be...
I have had a few good outings in MB. Congrats on the haul
LJ and areas of the coast are on fire. Congrats on the nice day on the water.
A couple more days and those paddies should be on fire. Great paddies out there but serious pressure over the holiday weekend. Congrats on the...
Just took popcorn out of microwave. Carry on
Fished the 226 yesterday with my buddy Scott. We found some massive paddies south of the 226. These paddies were massive barn door size paddies....
Proud papa for sure. Looks like you raised her right John.
Got a chance to jump off the OB pier yesterday with the mayor and a bunch of graduating junior lifeguards. A great cause and lots of good...
Sounds like it was last time this time of year. Calico fishing gets tough but the yellows get bigger. Mint and white was the color last year...
Heading for Cedros in 7 days. Anybody have any reports on what the fishing is like down there right now? Any news would be appreciated.
Hurry up and get the new boat Tommy. It's going to have a room right?
You can't keep the fishes head out of the water and expect a head shot with the gaff. Good thing I took the fish with the crappy gaff job.
Brandon........You forgot to mention my terrible gaffing ability.
So................one redeeming quality huh? Not sure that out weighs the rest of the issues. :-)
Thanks for the fun time everyone. The kids seemed to have had a blast. And for the record..................I'd take Carl on the boat over...
It's an evening fishing session. The sun will be low. We should be ok. I will bring a hat just in case.
8:00 pm make sure you tune in then knucklehead
7:40 this morning on KUSI. Should be some good stuff about the trip and helping the kids.
Channel 10 may be going on the boat with us to do a full story. I'll keep you posted. Stand by.
couldn't clear security huh Frank
Good news. KUSI is going to be doing an in studio interview with me Friday morning regarding this trip. Trying to get a couple of the kids to be...
BD and etiquette together in the same sentence........really?
Looking forward to Friday. I put it out to the press for coverage but that is the same night as the first big night of comi-con. We will have to...
Did Carl get permission from the courts to be on this trip?
Fished the 425 yesterday. The seiners must have come in after we left. Good YFT bite and all on the troll. Not much sign of life on the surface...
Put me down for a Benjamin Frank. But I don't see my name up there for helping out.
Do you still have room Frqnk. I checked my calendar and I can make the trip. I can also come up with a few bucks for you. I will push it with...
Nice bass. Reminds me of the 24 pound calico I got just off the beach at La Jolla cove. There I was on my kayak but I didn't have any gear heavy...
He's dead again?
Great video. Nothing like the LJSleigh ride and the excitement you showed when you sunk the gaff was great.qq People always ask why I stay out...
That's because there is a lot more to do here in than in Washington. Nothing to do there but fishand look at the crappy weather.
Check out the cylinder that rockets out of frame at about 2:50 into the video. Cool stuff.
I hear in Russia most people have dash cams (so to...
Snot sticks..........it's what's for dinner.
Those sierra sure make good ceviche
Was beginning to think I was the only one that noticed.
I bet the 60 pounder landed was the baby and the lost fish were much bigger. At least that's what I would say if I lost one. :-)
That is what we are trying for. If all goes well you will only need the multiple entry visa and it will be good to go by land or sea with no need...
The visa is only required 24 miles from shore (pretty sure that's the distance) the water past that is not a problem. Also.....this new visa will...
The trip to Ensenada was another good one. Still moving forward with a multiple entry visa and we should be good to go in a month or two.
Nice grade of fish and the Nemo jig is very cool
A multiple entry system in time for the fishing season is my goal. We need to get this in place soon. The upcoming season is looking promising.
Freedom is a two way street. People have the right to post what they want and others have the freedom to respond..............no matter how well...
Meeting with the Governor of Baja this weekend to keep the multiple entry visa ball rolling. I'll let you all know how it goes.
thanks for the report. Looks likke a lot of fun.
The crabs we have around here sure seem to be a lot of effort for the reward. The shells are very hard and too much of hassle for me most of...
Nice report. It was like being there. And ditto on the couple that look ravaged by seals.
I wouldn't count out another boat just yet. If all goes well we will get the multipple entry visa issue squared away in tthe next few months....
Too cool! Congrats to the angler, boat, and crew on such an impressive catch.
Big Cabbi for sure. Congrats
One of the main reasons I applied for this job was to give us a voice. It's my honor to represent.
Let's be clear about the long term visas. They can be purchased for up to (I think) 180 days but that is for 180 days in Mexico. It is not for...
Very nice surf flattie. Congrats!!!!
Buena suerte este manana Ron
Gavin was very nice and I was very glad that he wanted to come with us to the meeting. Glad he wanted to help.
I met with the Mexican commissioner of immigration and Mayor Faulconer along with Lieutenant Govenor Gavin Newsome. We had a very good discussion...
Leaving in just a few hours to meet with the Mexican president and the director of their immigration department. Hopefully Mayor Faulconer and I...
Nice rattler Kelly. Looks like a great day on the water.
I hear we are going to have an El Nino this year.
I don't think they don't want us fishing their waters. They are just looking for regulation and a few bucks. I'm sure if there were a lot of...

Nice fish and beard
A good fake........but a fake
Very nice. Great report.
City hall is now issuing passports.
Nice job Ted. Beats being at home. A couple more weeks and the butts should be on the chew.
Sweet. Good times
Now that's funny.
That's a small job.
I bet their insurance premiums are going to be going up.
Glad no serious injuries.
Isn't that spot of road just Southof where someone is trying to sell plots of land to build houses? The spot with all those locking brick walls...
The Chargers have been screwed several times by a bad call or a call not made by the refs. Good to see us get a break every once in a while....
Now that's the most appropriate response yet. Well done.
This thread has been too much fun. Merry Christmas everybody!
I wonder what cologne that guy was wearing. Very effective on seals.........either that or there was something larger and toothier in the water...

That's one small turkey:rofl: congrats on the bug. Yak hoopin is my favorite way to get them.
Did you weigh it? Looks to be 10 or 11 pounds. Very nice haul. Congrats.

I usually use three or four layers of cheese cloth so the basting...

NIce Matt. Good getting the kids out. Nice night and not a bad haul for the light tide movement the last few days.
X2 on the light gear. 6lb test is my go to for spotties.
Jerk Shad with bullet or sled head.
Good crawl last night. Had one hoop with four good keepers in it. Done by eight o'clock.
I'm putting together a robo call just for you big boy!!
Send it back to them. If it is truly a factory defect........they will take care of it. They may even cover your costs if their product was...
I miss PV. Thanks for reminding me of what an amazing fishery down there. Great video.
Congrats on making another one Frank! At least you are still looking at the right side of the grass.
Never been crabbin. Are you guys allowed to use real pots that the crab can't crawl out of or do you have to use hoop nets like we do for...
Congrats to your buddy on the big win, the coin, and his up coming wedding.
That's how you deal with a bully. Classic.
Same here. 130 kids last year and the last ones came by at 8:45.
Can you switch out the entire ignition?
Also check around in Mexico. I have found many an unusual part while down there. Junk yards and such...
Ditto. Puertocitos has much better shore fishing. Crocs and plastics and Gulp baits work well.
I'm out of town for Thanksgivin. Maybe before i leave we can get out.
The bugs we pulled showed no signs of molt but some diver buddies of mine grabbed some last weekend that were fresh molts.
We gotta get out...
If it were my boat probably would have done the same thing. But......since it was his boat I figured pulling the hoops was the right thing to do.
Finally got some time to go out on the water and look for the roaches. It was a great night Monday with a good tide flow and the huge moon didn't...
A blonde joke I hadn't heard before. And funny too. Thanks for the chuckle this morning.
Now that's living. phenomenal pics!!!!!
That was just a great block not a personal foul.
Probably cheaper in the long run then what I spend to go catch them.
Never been a big fan of the circus
And I'm going in to the Jacobs Center to listen to a mayoral debate. You have all the fun Frank. Throw one back for me.
And I gave up buggin to watch the game............STUPID
Glad I turned it off after the first Raider touchdown. Chargers win every other week. next week they will look good. And to think......I passed...
You should be proud Tommy. Your girl did great. Ran out of gas a little early but that is to be expected.
Congrats on the time on the water...
The trash isn't being picked up in DC with the shut down. Give it a week of garbage piling up and they will come to a conclusion.
I thought Frank would be the first to point that

Nope.........not looking for help finding one. I'm hoping to get your help to assist some friends in winning a contest.
KGB radio station is...
We have a hook up. Didn't take long
I lived in Sedona about 25 years ago. I understand the fishing you are talking about.
A lot better than lake Mary or Oak Creek trout huh.
Congrats......looked like a great trip.
Circle of life. I'm amazed this hasn't degenerated into a mako or GW debate yet.
Kids commentary was great.
You have to admit.............. that's funny!
Love the gas can photo. Reminds me of the long trips on my Buddy Steve's 19 Baja Runner. RIP buddy.
Glad you guys were rewarded for the long...
Ali is going to be expecting a cut of the revenue for the advertising.
excellent report again. Thanks.
You are asumming I want to be. ;)
I quit watching when they ran three runs in a row and punted. I knew what was coming. Typical Chargers. Get everyone thinking they are going to...
Nice. The guys in the truck look familiar. Not exactly a fishing boat. I wonder what those two were planning on doing at sea that day.
Very Nice yak ghosts. congrats
Kind of tough to troll at that speed. And where is the bait tank and rod holders?
Great trip and beautiful dodo pic. Congrats
Hang in there Mike. You are a good son! Prayers for more recovery are on the way.
Sent to DFG

Check with your homeowners insurance policy. Many times they will cover items lifted from your vehicle. Worth a try. Good luck on...
Awesome job guys
Great report. We had the same experience on our trip right after yours. We just had to deal with a tropical storm too. Namazing quality to the...
On our way back today. Turned out to be another great trip. We got out of port at about three in the afternoon the day it was supposed to be...
The weather is clearing but the frickin harbor master won't let us out of the port. Ridiculous. 10 mile an hour winds and no white caps and the...
Almost forgot......picked up my personal best calico bass yesterday. 8.5 lbs! A nice bass for sure.
Thanks buddy. With his age and health I may not get too many more of these opportunities. Each trip like this with pops is more precious than...
Weather is supposed to be good tomorrow. We will be out there. Thanks for the sabikis! They were a life saver!
Great day fishing yesterday. Mexican limits of yellowtail with the smallest being 30 pounds and the largest being 43 lbs. No fishing today as...
That's what I'm waiting to see later this morning. I hear it's a pretty good deal but I will have to wait a few more hours before I see it.
Filner was moving boxes out of the Mayors office. The end is near. I will see what the deal looks like later this morning. Hopefully it is...
Just so long as Cedros island is fishable. Leaving tomorrow morning.
:rofl::rofl:I would be hitting the like button if there was one. Thanks for the laugh!!!
That screws up Carl's entire dating strategy.
I was thinking about sticking my head in the bowling ball buffer to get it extra shiny. Sounds like you think I should go the other direction in...
Don't forget the knucklehead who was only using the plug of a power cord to secure the light to the boat.
You guys are the reason I'm here. I will be on BD now and always my friend.
Remember..........I'm not a politician I'm just surrounded by them.
7:30 this morning. Maybe I can work in a BD salute.
This morning on CNN amigo. More mayor bashing.
Nice quality fish. Congrats.
Fished the same are off point loma with a bunch of guys and gals from Wounded Warrior. Good times but fishing was tough. Cut squid and filleted...
Nope. Just chumming a bit this morning
Very true. But it doesn't change the statement that they may have a ton of fish so you may have to do like 20 trips. Math is still the same....
Case in point........500 lbs per cart would be four trips not 20. 2000 pounds (1 ton) divide by 500 ( pounds per cart) equals four trips
I read this entire thread and the only thing I learned is that fisherman are way too fucking sensitive and get all butt hurt over a little...
Trip is full. Thanks guys.
Happy b day to our team mom. Have a great one Maggie. You deserve it.
Thanks for the intel. Verifies what I have been hearing about that area.
I was in east cape the last full moon phase. Fished two days and caught 5 marlin and 20 tuna. The full moon didn't seem to bother them much....
I enjoy taking on the mayor all the time my friend!!!!
I can't believe nobody wants to go on this trip! The fishing down there is amazing and the food is even better.
Better make sure that person is male if they are going to be around city hall.
Although the next week and a half should be safe.......the mayor...
You guys rock!!!! Make A Wish is such a great organization and they are very lucky to have champions like Harry and Lan. Way to go gang!
Been eating it raw forever. My favorite sashimi fish. Better than ahi in my humble opinion.
Bump.......spot still available. Should be a great trip with a bunch of good guys.
We could even discuss all the behind the scenes stuff...
What's next? A guest appearance on Wicked Tuna?
Are we taking on water?
Lots of good off loading last couple of days!
Anyone find any 30 cal carbine ammo? Still having a tuff time locating that round.
The usual MO for Jason.
I wish the sun would come up. At MB right now ready to launch the yak and start slaying the spotties.
Can't wait to call in and give the guys a bunch of shit. :2gunsfiring_v1: They are on AM1090 at 7:00 this morning.
I forgot to follow up with a report. No Dorado for us but plenty of marlin and tuna. Cedros in a couple weeks. Can't wait.
Yesterday morning? Must have been and old clip. I haven't bashed the mayor on TV for at least a couple days now. What quote was it? Probably...
Shit. I thought I had the spot filled. Now it's open again. Any interest send me a pm.
That was an awesome catch
A Bloodydecks lapel pin would be cool.
Ali?............when are you guys going to have that on the swag list?
Well........no defense money for the mayor and we will countersue if the city is on the hook for legal fees because of his actions. Big victory...
I can't wait :hali_olutta:
Wish me luck in closed session today. The mayor wants his legal bills paid for by the taxpayer.:rofl:
There is common courtesy when fishing. Most people adhere to it and ask for an ok to slide up on a paddy. Unfortunately......some people have...
Much respect for the release!!! Congrats on the big fish.
It may be subtle.....but the next time I'm on I will try to work it in.
Agreed buddy. That's why I got in and don't want to run for another office. Just bringing a big shovel down there with me to clean up the mess....
That wouldn't take long. A short pay per view event for sure.
KUSI may have it on their site. San Diego people is the name of the show.

The spot is still open.
Your supposed to keep your money in your shoe and $20 mordida money in your wallet. That way you can say that's all I have.
I have not had to...
I'm still waiting to see where the money is. Haven't found it yet.
3 full days. Plenty of fishing last trip. Check out the thread of last years trip....Cedros Fly in Trip is the title. Awesome fishing. Big...
Lots of Marlin (pesky things) and 15 pound tuna. Very little Dorado. Great time thou. Cedros is next.
I still haven't had any problems in Mexico and I go there a lot. College days don't count since I brought that on myself while down there.
Last year I gave Rick the report. Looking forward to the other way around.
I was at that tournament. Returned on Sunday and was at the weigh in. I saw the fish that came out of the dorados belly. The thing I found...
Cool. Look forward to your report in the airport.

All packed and getting on a plane in a couple hours. Thanks for all the info everybody.
Fish report to follow in a few days.
He won't figure that out before I get back. I'll keep reminding him though. :D:D :nutkick:
Thanks. May be worth the extra coin to have the gear with me. Kind of like golfing without your own clubs.
I just go aroused reading that..............out of here tomorrow morning and on the water Friday AM. Can't wait.
Another question if you don't...
Heading down tomorrow to Los Barriles for the Dorado Shootout and was wondering if anyone had some info or fish reports from the area. Any...
I'm stuck at city hall and these great reports are KILLING ME!!!!!! Congrats on the nice fish. Catching with Carl around is quite an accomplishment.
Nice grade of fish. Congrats on a great trip. The smiles say it all.
Keep at it Ali. The time will pay off my friend. Keep at it. Can't wait to see the first one come over the rail.
Now that's a good day of local fishing. Great job and congrats.
Pesky bycatch. Hate when that happens. Awesome day on the water. Congrats on the nice fish.

Great day fishing with you yesterday amigo. Hopefully we can reproduce that effort for the Shootout. See you tomorrow night at the captains meeting.
Had a good day yesterday in the same area fishing with my buddy Tommy. Limits of Yellowtail for two guys. Also lost one at the kelp beds south...
Our best three yellowtail yesterday totaled 57lbs
Whatever the weight of my teams bag will be the winning weight.
70.1 is my official guess though.
Nice home guard yellow. Congrats.
He cut off Carls right hand?
Palomar knot on the stick with a Double Uni knot for the mono/ flouro leader.
Manny is a great skipper. Or if you want to go the panga route try Lora. Most are listed here.
At least the DFW is good at follow up. Just got a call asking for info on this guy. Sounds like they have run into this guy before.
Make sure you or the hauler have the right insurance. Insurance sometimes can be difficult hauling across country.
I guess we should let rob a bank too. After all he is just trying to get some money to buy food.
Plus......"trash fish" have their place in the...
Quick update.....DFW warden called back and left message for me. Doing a follow up on my report. Playing telephone tag but they got back to me.
Don't know what the law is on how many lines, hooks, etc but I do know the regs on undersized fish. He kept just about everything except the rays.
I couldn't resist
On second thought..................it may have just been Carl.
Make sure to bring the banana cream pie.
Well now I've seen it all.
Yesterday morning I had an early morning TV appearance with some time left between morning meetings. I decided to...
Either boat is a good option.
Next time it's photographs. Camera will be at the ready.
A few weeks ago I was fishing MB from my yak and saw a shore fisherman catch a small ray and then he spiked it in the head and threw it away. Why...
At your age you need em.
Great pic amigo. Can we fish next to you again this year? Been getting used to watching you guys catch the...
Congrats on the PB
Another run to Clemente in your 21 footer Tommy? Maybe we can find fish closer this year. Or just find some fish. Looking forward to following...
Brown baits? That's a blast from the past. Nice dinosaur fishing.
If it's over three months in just a freezer bag. I just make sure it cooked well after the burn is cut off. Just wouldn't sashimi it up after...
He has to be financially disciplined. He has 11 kids in 10 states by 7 different women. He is going to be broke forever even if he is...
If Rogers-Cromartie plays anything like Antonio Cromartie..........then the Doncos are screwed. There is no wimpier player in all of football....
You should have a lot of experience with that feeling.
What new format?
Awesome Cory. Congrats on an excellent trip
The kids look like they had a terrible time:D. Nice report. The pictures said it all.
Hard to argue with that. Ouch indeed
Very nice quality Ono right there. Congrats.
I knew I could count on you Scott.
I so want to make a "length of peni comment". I leave it up to you all though.
Very nice. And you already know how to pose for pictures. :rofl:
Keep it up.
Awesome video!! The Mako had a broken pectoral fin that looked like a fold up wing on a jet fighter.
Now that was one dumb drunk bastard to wind up there. I wonder where the owner is?
Loreto used to be my favorite spot for Grouper. Skippy or Bonita with a big weight and hevy line and rig. We would always get bit. Mlanding them...
Another great outing Cory.
Gods speed. Sorry for the loss but thanks for the words of wisdom. Your words may have just saved someone from going through what you and your...
Very nice. Wish I was in the market.
I guess I'm just lazy. I got my fish n dive 9 years ago. If it ain't broke don't fix it I guess. I still fish that piece of plastic. Slower...
I know a good insurance guy :rofl:
The only stupid question is the one not asked.
Welcome to BD. Are you sure you want to be associated with this bunch a degenerates?
Congrats on your first. Welcome to the addiction. Don't worry about fishing early before work and what people think. I keep my fishing rods and...
Leaning towards hwy 1 for the trip down. May take the scenic route on the way back.
Just the 4x truck. Not going to haul the trailer.
Anybody know what the road is like from Gonzaga south? May be driving to Loreto in a few weeks and trying to decide route.
Any info would be...
Hopefully he's better at picking up running backs than he is at picking up chicks.
Nice. Fished MB Sunday morning for the same kind of action. Lot's of butts biting in the bay right now. Nice video and thanks for sharing.
Floor first then paint. just be careful painting and yu will be fine. Do the floor and then clean well and paint,
I wonder if this guy needs a job selling insurance. i bet he could sell refrigerators to Eskimos.
Discover Baja is a good option or you could call my wife at the office. She has been writing Mex insurance for over twenty years and used to work...
Welcome to the addiction. Great first trip.
Now......you will have to excuse me. I'm just about ready to launch the yak in MB for a morning of...
Douche bags!!!! Glad they were caught.
Fantastic pics. What a great adventure you all had. Congrats on the fishing.
In Allied Gardens myself and have lost a cat to yotes. They know how to go "urban hunting". I've seen them in the early AM running down the...
Dropper loop with live squid?
PV is a great place. Congrats on he trip.
The wait at the border is a good enough reason not to tow down there.
At least that one guy crashed into an ambulance. Now that's efficiency.
My new bucket list item. Awesome.
If you want to blame someone or something other than the person using the weapon then let's look at the 24/7 coverage of these tragedies. Maybe...
Me too. Viva la differance.
Yes I do. The straw man here is blaming the gun for the actions of a psychopath who used the gun. Blaming the weapon is the straw man in this...
My gun is no more than a paper weight if I am not using it. I have many guns and not one has got up and run amuck.
Some big assumptions there. To state that the elementary school attack started the run on firearms is wrong. It was the governments reaction to...
Again though.........those high cap mags and guns would not be a problem if it wasn't for the person holding it.
Why is it when someone gets...
I think he was pointing out that inanimate objects like knives and guns are harmless unless someone picks them up and uses them malisciously....
Especially in this state.
I think Saluki is try to point out absurdity by being absurd.
I'm very concerned. I know martial arts and taught it for 12 years. I know how to kill with my bare hands. How long before my hands are banned....
No problem. Now you know about spotties in the bay and sound willing to listen to how most do it around here. Good for you. And please don't...
A lot of spotties there because most people release them.
My thoughts exactly. Nice to have that sedated marlin there too.
Sound alike a good time. If the wind doesn't blow.
Mega baits or gulp baits if you still want to go with artificial baits. What George said about the laser minnow is golden too.
Good spottie fishing yesterday in MB. No dinks and a small butt too.
Looks like a BD lure with that look. Nice
Great pics and big dodo. Congrats
Sounds like fun. Getting ready to fish MB this morning. Hopefully the spotties will be bigger. Last week saw one that went 18 inches.
Trying to take my staff shooting next weekend. Any body know where I can find some 30 cal. Carbine ammo?
If youvare with progressive I can get the wording for you.
All good stuff. I have seen the Progressive wording that talks about Mexico coverage and they will cover 75 miles from shore in any State,...
Weedless jig heads and swim baits work great. I also like the Gulp Jerk Shad with a sled head. Great weedless setup and the fish cant stay off...
Texmojo.......no disrespect intended but why do you run right to asking people if they served when defending yourself? What does that have to do...
Let me weigh in here. Mexican law requires you to have MEXICAN INSURANCE for liability in Mexico. Your vehicle and boat need to have Mexican...
Everything tastes better than balut.
They ran out of vagasil?
:rofl::rofl::rofl: you guys are killin me. Thanks for the lunchtime laugh.
Received and appreciated amigo.
Getting Gov. To hurry up and spend allocated money is frustrating. I have my staff checking into expediting this entire process. We will try...
We should ban dogs.
So that's where my vest ended up. It had my license in it. I have to go track her down. If anyone sees her at the show make sure to send her...
He still out fishes his old man. Happy birthday youngster.
Don't let her eat the wedding cake. There is a secret ingredient in it that kills the sex drive in women.
Fishing usually picks up around Fred Hall. Wish I could get on the water.
Not a politician ..........just surrounded by them!
Some lady on the news said this morning that they have had "poaching, shootings and mutilations" of seals at the children's pool. I sure would...
That piece of crap will cost a few million dollars to incarcerate for life. I know the price of ammo has gone up but it is still cheaper than...
Good to know. Maybe the gun shop told me incorrectly regarding number of rounds. May have been just proposed.
Can't buy that many bullets at one time I guess. I have tried to find the sme thing to no avail.
EPIRB gets you a discount on insurance (with most companies) as well.
Quality tails guys. Congrats
The market may go back down but no time soon. The price of money is historically cheap. If I were in the market I would be buying now.
Very nice family outing. Congrats.
We have been eating genetically modified food for a long time. What is the issue?
I'll see you there Harry. We are having a booth again this year and raffling off a tackle box full of schwag.
Rumor? That was fact a couple months ago.
On some good news. The gov did a research trip out to the 43 and found that cow cod were very...
U derstood. My trailer only weighs about 8500 fully loaded. It tows that fine but over 10,000 pounds would be a problem longterm. A great truck...
Awesome Harry. Fred Hall must be getting close. Fishing always seems to go off when Fred Hall comes to Del Mar.
I'm probably going to upset Some guys here.......but my 2005 truck with 312000 miles on it is a Toyota!!!
This truck has been amazing. I change...
I never thought I would be in a automatic ever. But my truck has 312,000 miles on it and only serviced the transmission once. It's an 05 and...
Don't forget insurance. I know a guy I could hook you up with if you need a quote. :D
I thouht there was a little shaking.
Fun catch and great pics. Congrats on the big fish on the light line.
A little bailing wire and duct tape and it will be good as new.
Thanks everyone. The well wishes are much appreciated.
From this point on....every day looking at the right side of the grass is a good one.
Prayers for you and your boy.
"Ali a politician"? Now that's funny.
Looks like a great trip.
When you see those clouds coming over the mountains you know the wind is going to blow. Nice pics.
Prayers sent. I pray all turns out well.
Great pics. Nice.
Pair of pliers? A real man would rip that nail off with his teeth or just cut the finger off and get back to work. Hell........you have nine others.
You sound like a politician.
Who cares about your boo boo Rob. Where were you hooping? Numbers would be appreciated.
Rub some dirt on it and get back to buggin....
That sure was a long winded way of saying "if you fall off your horse the best thing to do is get right back on."
Still don't understand the...
Both good tips. You will need a fish finder if you are going to work the bottom spots.
So sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and Dom's family.
Ols man and the sea. The original with Spencer Tracy. It was one of the movies that inspired my love of fishing.
Maybe that's why I like the...
Man I can't wait for the fishing to get better.
That's a state issue.
X2. Nice and easy.
I take a flea bath every night when I get home.:rofl:
Ridiculous and embarrassing.
Just you my friend.
See you at the BBQ Frank. May I be on the real people list? I've been trying to get on that list for a while now :rofl::hali_olutta:
The gov scare tactics continue. This morning they are saying we will lose all food inspectors if we don't do something to stop the sequester....
He's still trolling
Why is it they cut the programs everyone likes first? Trying to play on sympathies I guess.
I noticed they didn't get rid of the 86 mil they...
Looks like a great trip. congrats.
Very well said. Who wrote it for you?
This guy does know how to troll. I'll give him that.
You know you are getting old when.......4 o'clock in the morning is when you get up ......not when you get home.
You going to the BD BBQ?
I'm just amazed you were included on the list :rofl::rofl: :hali_olutta:
But have you been buggin George. That is the important fuckin question.
And quit typing so many words per minute........ Your posts are too long...
Tacos and a big tail.........NICE!!!!
Are they good to eat?
It's going to be very difficult to remove them. Almost impossible in my humble opinion.
I always enjoy and the Fred Hall Del Mar has some great deals at the end of the show.
Another San Clemente run? :rofl: :rofl:
I use bigger bait than those :rofl:
Just kidding......nice rainbows!! A day on the water with family can't be beat.
Black Sea Bass!!
There are only a couple packer fans here on BD. What's the point?
Actually there is a secret ingredient in wedding cake that causes that.
I don't piss people off Frank ;)
I figured Carl didn't watch. I left my phone in my pocket and was afraid he would call during the segment. No ring meant no Carl.
The press made it a gun control story by the way they presented the facts. The guns were locked up where the kid couldn't have access. There is...
I keep coming back because this is the only site that hasn't kicked me off.
Another good point. Litigation for everything is a serious problem. It costs everyone but the attorneys.
But they do have a bunch of councilors at the school to help the children cope. COPE WITH WHAT!!!!! An e-mail they never knew existed until it...
Watching the news this morning and it turns out that a 12 year old kid sent a threatening e-mail to a teacher with the reference to using a gun....
Care to expand why?
I will be looking for you Wayne. Should I bring you a cigar? ;);)
See you in the morning. My Grandson Nathan and I will be there. Fishing instead of volunteering this time. I'll try to help where I can though.
Very good idea. Save some coin and wait until next winter. Another good idea is to have someone look at the boat you are thinking about buying....
I will look for you all tomorrow. Thanks for all the advice.
I was thinking about the camping part too. Depends on timing tonight....may try to...
Any bait suggestions?
Thanks. Should be fun having the grandson fish this time.
I'm going to take my grandson to the kids fishing derby Saturday and need some tips on trout fishing that lake. I don't do the freshwater thing...
Nice job Harry.
It must be a marketing strategy because that situation exists down here too Frank.
I'm old so the age of children did not go high enough. My children are 25 years old.
I'm amazed I'm still looking at the right side of the grass.
It's doable but not recommended. Break the trip up. Night time driving down there can be an adventure at best. Take two days and relax a bit.
Nice. Picked up a 27 inch butt the other day using the same baits. Congrats on the flattie.
I wonder how many Ravens players called their parole officers when the lights went out. They aren't supposed to be out after dark.
I guess the replacement refs found jobs as electrical engineers.
Sounding like a charger fan.
I guess the 9'ers halftime adjustment was to throw a wrench into the transformer for the lighting system.
The boats should be able to charge what they want for cach or credit. Government should not be involved. If a boat wants to recover the fees the...
Fishing must be slow. This thread just keeps going.....and going.......and going
I think it won't take 30 years for the NFL to go away. I give it fifteen years and the lawyers and do-gooders will have the game outta here.
Just awesome. Incredible work.
Will do Mags. I have a follow up lunch meeting scheduled with them in a couple weeks. I know you and the BD crew will be there when I need you....
Find the next good low tide and drive down there. Usually on a good minus tide you will get an idea of where the weed beds are. Most of the weed...
She needs to take better care of spent clips but overall not a bad performance. I did notice she only went after the close targets,
Glad we could contribute Rich.
I thought you did........twice. Oh yeah.....that was supposed to be our secret. :rofl:
I think the meeting was productive. They were very happy that I took the time to come see them. The heat seems to be getting turned up and they...
I meet with them later this morning. Should have some signatures from the other council members too.
I think I'll start off trying to find common ground first. No sense in puffing out the chest in the first meeting. Might set a bad tone.
I'll be talking about sport and private boats for sure.
I'm meeting with the Mexican Consulate General today to discuss this issue. Wish me luck!!!! Hopefully we can get the ball rolling on a solution.
There are two types of strickers on the shrimp. One has a spear type Stryker and the other Mantis shrimp has a club like striker. I saw one...
:rofl: :rofl: maybe in twenty years or so.
I like the last two pictures of him casting. The first pic is all about power. The second is a good example of grace. The kid is a natural.
It's on the calendar Mags.
Next to "father" ........it's the best title you can have.
Yep......too much fun. The granddaughter is two. She will be next.
Yep. I let the little guy jump off the yak last time. We were close to shore and he had on the vest so I felt safe. He felt the water temp and...
I don't bother attaching him to yak. I would hate to roll or sink with him attached. I just make sure his life vest is on at all times. He...
He started holding a fishing pole when he was about a year. Got him actually fishing when he was three.
Let me see if I can get out there. He would enjoy it for sure.
Took my five year old grandson Nathan out for a little fishing on the bay yak style. We had a blast hanging out together and catching spotties. He...
Was that interview on the air? I looked for it and didn't see it. Did they show me hooking up with a spottie?
I have meetings set up with Mexican officials next week to try and deal with this issue. Also meeting with the mayor to try and deal with this...
Panama or the southern Pacific side of Costa Rica. Very good surfing and fishing.
Good. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Gee........the pro fishing side starts an organization and they enviro nuts get all bent out of shape. I guess they don't like when someone uses...
Saw that boat the other day at Dana Launch Ramp. Nice looking fast ride. Three outboards across the back of that boat.
So how did it finish?
Most of us around here are dicks. Don't get too upset about it. It's just the way things are on BD.
I may have to order one of those. Awesome work.
I don't know if Tatuna is still on here but he did some good work.
No need to wait to set the hook. When I feel a bite I start to reel quick to "Load up" then a gentle set of the hook with the surf perch. Keep...
That doesn't work :D
Like you have a nickel.
Typical of politicians over reacting to a tragic event.
Lora is the man. Looks like a great trip
Check with harbor patrol. They find them a lot. Did you get any bugs?
Some good looking deals Tommy.
I used to fish with Josh Temple when he was down there. Also fished with Lora, Capt Juan Moll and Capt. Manny. All three are excellent skippers....
RIP and let me know if I can help Rich. Sorry for your loss.
Go to Cedros in early August. They were all over the place.
Newbies always bring good luck. Nice haul.
You are not in the middle amigo. People in the middle usually wait for the majority to form and then hitch their wagon. You are just a...
I wonder what the frenzy would have been like if you dropped back a bait?
How long did the dogs stay with you? There must have been twenty of those things just hanging where your bait shouuld be.
Great video by the way!
bay fishing this time of year is great. Light line and grumpy bass. All C&R stuff but a very fun time.
this happened a while ago. Just actually changed as of the New Year. probably an indication of where the agency is going.
Sorry. Not enough room on the yak. Good luck.
You forgot "male prostitute and thrill seeker" Carl
I thought you were all that and more amigo.
All good things come to those who wait. It will happen soon.
Sounds like a fishing trip is in order. God bless him and the rest who serve.
Sounds like I'm batting 500 with ya. I'll take that any day. Happy new year!
Most politicians are arsonist firemen. Create a fire and then come put it out to look the hero.
Norv's knows he is outta here. Have you listened to him lately? The writingison the wall. I hope his stuff is waiting for him on the street...
I knew I shouldn't have opened that.
Nice Christmas gifts. Maybe the wife wants you out of the house more :D
You have to remember. These laws are not being put forth with the idea of actually making things safer. It's about the anti gun people feeling...
That's why you play craps amigo. No one to screw up your deck.
No work for me today. Already down at the sand dunes. Getting ready to start the prime rib slow cooking all day.

I just read about a guy who killed his grandmother with a hammer. We better outlaw or restrict hammer ownership. Maybe people should only be...
I love fishing that area. Nice vid.
I just checked. My guns are still where I left them and they have not run amuck.
Same to you. Big plans for today?
Those might work.....along with slacker, burden to society, and hermaphrodite.
So sorry! I should have said " Perverts, degenerates, Psychos, bullies, loafers, fellow fishermen, and Carl". I still can't figure out a...
I just want to say Merry Christmas to all you perverts, degenerates, ruffians, bullies, psychos, loafers, and fellow fisherman.
Norv should look at this as a job interview with his old employer.
Sweet trip. Thanks for the report.
That's one big tree fish. Nice job
I agree. That picture is totally disgusting...........those guys haven't trimmed their beards in weeks. GROSS!!!
The more important question is what brand of cigar are you puffin on?
The pro angler has an amazing seat. Very comfortable. A little heavy but worth it for the extras on that platform.
They make terrible bug bait. I speak from experience.
I know that the humbolts eat just about everything. However....I am sure they have been...
Nicely done. Congrats.
You don't suppose the Mayans were right. First the election and now this?
10/22 is a great weapon.
My Tundra has 304,000 miles on it without a problem. I haul my toy box with it a bunch. Either to the desert or into Mexico. 304,000 miles and...
The food and accommodations were excellent. The fishing was phenomenal.
Shoot me a pm if you want details.
I did a report here back around...
You could do the fly in trip with Duane at Cedros Adventures and bypass the whole mess. Stay on the island and fish from pangas.
Very nice report and pics. Congrats on an epic trip.
A nice farewell present.
What is the big deal? It's just the Steelers.
That's getting it done. Nice job.
Holy colossal cow batman!!!! I missed the weight by 20.5 lbs.

Nope. It's open to the public........even you.
You coming down to the swearing in ceremony later this morning?
Oh yeah......if anyone writes that book it would be found in the fiction...
One of the things I am trying to work out Carl. How to pay and how to get through the EIR process without a lot of hassle.
Nice ones. That puller makes everything look way too easy. Question now is how do I put one on my yak.:rofl:
Agreed. That fishery is not as good as it used to be. The fishing is still pretty good though. I think there are two factors to the "not as...
I thought bears fans were more the "raisan Jack" brewed in the toilet crowd.
Who did you steel the beer from?
It took a while but was a lot of fun. I should have re tied after that fish. The next spottie broke the string.
Nice. I love the sleigh rides in the yak. Too much fun.
The only growth in government I advocate is the establishment of a "department of common sense".
I figure I will get sworn in and then sworn at.
I heard the hali fishing for the tournament was kind of small. i usually catch big fish just before and after tournaments.
I fished the bay this morning with a nice incoming tide, no wind, and NO BOATS anywhere to be seen. It was just me and the brants swimming nearby....
I would love to see pics of the inside of that wreck. Sounds like an epic trip guys.

125 LB striped marlin with 25 LB test. It was 1978 and I remember it like it was yesterday.
Some nice fish for sure. Congrats
Doesn't get better than that.
Current and structure. Try to be up current just a bit from the structure you want to hoop. Scent will be carried to the bugs that way. Lots of...

Getting used to it and expecting it are two different things. I expect it but will NEVER get used to it............GO BOLTS!!!!! Bring on Chuckie
Bring on Chukie!!!
At least the bay fishing was very good yesterday and I find myself becoming a fan of TV Blackouts. At least i don't have to watch.
Definitely down wind of that mess. Seems like the stench goes away after football season but the smell is unbearable from around September thru...
They sure did last week :hali_olutta:
Still stirrin huh?
Nice goats. Good on ya for getting out with the boy.
Now where did I put my steel toed boots?
I wonder how many people actually respond.
High school cheer squad doesn't count as a sport.
Have a great Thanksgiving bruddah.
Thanks Brandon. Those were some impressive sheep.
Have a great thanksgiving Jeff. You are a good man.......I don't care what everyone else says.
Very rugged mountains but there is something special about that place.
The Dutchman's gold was just our excuse to go into those mountains. We mostly went just to go camping and hiking.
We launch out of first water over by apache junction.
That's the area. Wish I had better computer skills to zoom in. There are three of the biggest bighorn sheep I have seen. Three big full circle...

I knew you would want to know.
I bet that boat just lost it's insurance by surpassing the max speed allowable.:D:D:D
The shoe is for size comparison. What the hell is that white thing doing there?
Very nice little ride you have there. Looks like new! Did you insure it yet? :D
Cool....sounds like you still have it. I'll call you to make arrangements.
Not quite as much as the truck. The bike is three years old and only has 47,000 miles on it.
Awesome!!! I'll call you later this morning. Thanks.
I normally would but it's making a funny sound when running and I don't want to chance making it worse with the ride up there.
Nice catches. Nothing better than big fish on the yak.
Sad to hear. Good luck with your future endeavors.
He would probably break it.
Well. Go get em.
Nope. The front tires are too wide.

Your sled is pretty sweet the way it is Dennis. Plus you can miss seeing a lot of stuff on the water going slow.
I'll be getting sworn in soon and will be contacting some of those interests you and Joe mentioned. Hopefully I will be getting some responses...
Well Saluki anyway. :D :hali_olutta:
That looked more like someone wanted what was inside and not a blow out. Keep the calls coming. eventually they will tire of you and take care...
I agree with a lot of what you said and it was said with passion and reason. The one thing you did say that I would like to take issue with is "...
Only after haggeling on price.
I have had it serviced before. Unless the shop charged me for not doing anything.....I don't think they are sealed.
I've caught many a flattie on artificials. Caught them in both bays. You may be able to get more bites on live bait but it can be done on the fakes.
The back end is a little light. My yak is back there most of the time so that helps a little.
That's what the IRS asked me when they audited me. they wanted to see my mileage logs because they couldn't believe I was driving that much....
It's much better than your methane footprint :D
But I just got this one past the break in point.
Toyota makes a good truck. I just rolled over 300,000 miles on mine and it is still going strong.
The only issue I have ever had was a broken ball joint that made the front wheel come off. That was a recall item and all was fixed. I did...
My truck sure has been. 2005 Toyota tundra. Original motor, original transmission, and a bunch of miles. Next stop........400k
Well......it's better than closing bass fishing all together.
Thanks for the buginfo by the way.
Fish Dope. That site has all the answers and the info you seek.
Current is important offshore. Specially when looking for paddies. A current...
Carry a sign that says "Iron my shirt"
These dumbasses keep equating human emotions and feelings to animals. Dumb asses. I actually heard a PETA jerk off say regarding deer hunting "...
That doesn't suck. Very nice day. Congrats.
Great pics Andy. Tough to stay off the water right now.
The last two military kids trip had big hali's caught at night. One went 23 pounds. I may have a picture around somewhere. I'll have to look.
Nice work from the yak. Some quality bottom dwellers. Getting ready to do a little bay fishin from the yak right now. Should be a beautiful...
Great report. Love that last photo. Gets the blood going.
And dogs don't mind when you come home smelling like another dog and the chance of their parents coming to visit are pretty much non existent.
I'd say that's a nice one
I believe it's only going in at this point. Coming north still sucks. As of last month that is.
Nice video of the new route. Looks simple enough.
We had several people who drove up in cars and let their kids out. They said the kids insist they drive over to the "bald guys" house to see what...
Not a DFG guy but you can't do it. I remember someone on this board getting in big trouble for doing something similar.
A little over one hundred kids and 70 adults last night. A Fu time was had by all.
I'm going to the game tonight. Hopefully it is to witness Norv's final game as Charger's head coach.
Come by the house. We've got plenty of em.

Scariest boating story?................We ran out of beer once.
Fishing theme huh? OK......here you go. The first one is the way I look when I'm thinking about fishing and the second one is what I'm like when...
It's a lot of work but the neighborhood has a good time with it.
I could not get good pictures of the spider cave. The pic below shows the...
Halloween decorating has been a traditio at my place for quite a while. The kids are gone now but the neighborhood expects us to do it up right....
I offered to take off my shirt .............not good enough for you?
Thanks again buddy for the bug trip.
I actually thought the same thing. Lobster carcasses in a hoop net with some fingers and cut off hands for bait. Should look disgusting.
We pulled a little deeper last night due to the full moon. I guess it payed off.
Sorry we missed you last night Ted. We had better luck with limits for two by 8:30pm. I'll pm you next time we are out to see if you are going.
Full moon pic from last night
Nice report. Congrats on a great trip.
I think the curse only happens when you are on the boat.
My buddy Rick and I were able to get out on the water last night for some hooping. I was supposed to carve pumpkins last night but buggin sounded...
TODAY? It's been tough to be a Chargers fan all my life. Damn Chargers!!
The Chargers may not get close enough to the opponents end zone again this season.....so why does it matter who the kicker is?
Chargers piss me off.
At least the weather is great and the fishing and bugging have been good.
I finished decorating for Halloween. A nice relaxing day yesterday.
They can beat bad teams. We should be ok. Go Chargers.
I'm not much of a beer guy.....but I tipped back a Tecate in Stan's honor yesterday. I sure miss the big guy
Me thinks this guy had a traumatic diaper incident and pictures of a big fake turd bring back supressed memories.
Lighten up Francis.
Swell is up but with wind predicted to be out of the east....the wind out on the water should be good.
The fat little fin fish in the middle of the pic look like small tunas.
How are those splinter wounds healing by the way?
Thanks bro. The 10th of November may be the day. I'll let you know when we get it nailed down.
I've got a good sized back yard bro. We will make it happen.
Working on an event for Stan with his family. Probably some type of BBQ and beerfest. I'll keep you all posted as soon as I work out the details...
We could have the BBQ at my place. I would be happy to open my home in honor of your father.
No shit.... This sucks!
Or maybe the problem was percieved.
Still some bits of bloodydecks stickers stuck to the inside of my elevator here at work. Stan came for a visit last time he was in SD and left...
Excellent pic of the big guy.
I think you had it.
I am just floored right now. What a terrible loss for all who knew him. Prayers for his family.
We were supposed to fish together this...
Should have submitted him for an world record. I'm sure you would have crushed the current record holder with that one.
Good job getting the boy out there and getting some quaity bugs as well.
