    South 9-Mile Bank 1/18

    Do a little homework before you eat raw or marinated rockfish. There's a whole slew of parasites that are only safe to eat if they've been cooked to 140° or frozen for at least 48 hrs. Parasites that will make you VERY unhappy!

    Yellowfin?

    I had a reliable report from a friend who went about 10 mi off la jolla on Tuesday, looking for patties holding yellows. He saw 30# yellowfin jumping on bait. No big foamers but lots of activity. Couldn't get them to go but all he had was bigger irons. Looked like they were on the small chovies.

    Tuna Seiners

    I have solid proof (I read it on the Internet!) that the catfood industry is driven by all those bastards using it as chum for making bait. Yet another reason fishing needs to be more tightly regulated. Artificials only! No more bait-fishing allowed! Mitch McConnell, help us out on this one....

    2/19/19 SMB - Shark ID

    I worked with sharks for many years @ SIO. My best guess is salmon shark. Based on the photo, it looks like the white ventral coloring extends up over the gill slits and the dorsal fin has a ragged look to the trailing edge, both of which are indicators of a salmon shark rather than a white.

    Anyone Using Mole Crabs as bait?

    In SoCal mole crabs are bigger than sand crabs, they eat the smaller sand crabs, are found in the same areas as sand crabs, and will bite the crap out of you if you're not careful! X2 on the softshell sand crabs. Here's a trick: freeze and thaw hard shell ones and they'll become soft shells.

    Bitch'n bug pic.....is it legal?

    I believe everyone on earth falls into one of two categories: Cheaters, and Non-cheaters. No one ever just cheats once. You are either an honest individual or a habitual cheater. If you're a cheater, then in reality, you are only cheating yourself.

    Tuna weren't attacking the shark. They use sharks as a means of dislodging parasites and random food particles from their gills. Since they can't do this on the bottom in deep water, sharks, molas and other large fish are their method of choice. I worked at an aquarium for years and watched...

    Green Sea Turtle (Chelonias mydas). See them occasionally when I'm diving. Apparently there's a fairly large group (60-70) that live year-round in SD Bay.

    Sunday San Juan Rocks (by San Clemente Pier) / Broomtail Grouper

    Speaking from experience.....keeping a "no possession" fish in your bait tank counts as possession. F&G can cite you for illegal possession and it really, REALLY hurts, to the tune of $2000 in the case of the boat I was on. Just glad it wasn't my catch or my idea to hang onto it!

  204. MarktheShark56

    NOAA public comment on Bluefin limits and fillet regulations ACTION ALERT

    What puzzles me is: If the commercial catch is being cut 40%, why not the same for sportfishermen? A 6-fish limit would be 40% down from 10 fish. Or even 50%? Who really needs more than 5 bluefin anyway? Don't mind paying my share, but 80% vs. 40% seems a little unbalanced to me.
