It just takes one field. El centro and Niland have been spotty as well.
So, what areas are open? When is the next clean up party?
Wish I could have made it. Thanks for the invite Johnny
So true!! Well done sir!
Yozzuri made a metal jig called the hydro metal. Deadly on the slide. I still have 10 or 12 of them left.

My 11 year old is a she. That is a good idea. I grew up with the junior NRA program and had so much fun.
My 11 year old wants to learn how to target shoot. Short of joining a club or going to a pay to shoot range, it looks like the desert is the only...
We have Gray Davis and fucking MoonBeam to thank for this
Dude was stabbed 66 times.
Will those handlesfit the dsv? Will shimano replace it under a warranty?
It seems to work pretty well
Ray is a cool dude. Not surprised he called you guys in
"Death from Above" was my first boat.
If you've never tried this you are missing out .
I've seen this before in albacore but never in a bluefin or yellowfin
Also the water temp in San Diego bay doesn't get as warm as in Mission Bay.
I saw him there on thursday. Didn't look like he was booking too many trips. I'm suprised that Seaforth Landing is still promoting the Eclipse.
I'm in Atl 34 NE 20
Sorry to hear this. WEAR YOUR LIFE VEST !
you beat me to it
I second the Premier. Fun boat.
I'm pretty sure my Newells are worth more then I paid for them
Baja Special. Throws a jig a mile and has the power for yo-yo fishing. I also have a Newell 332 and it's a great surface iron reel. The Penn is...
I will never set foot on a Suck Shaft boat again. He always seems to have the dregs of the sportfishing fleet.
If you think it's bad here, try going on one of the L.A. boats!
Great reels. They need above average care.
Hey Jeff, I'll be there on the 13th also. It should be great fishing!
hahaha! I just drove by the last place he worked (Twin Anchor) and it was Bulldozed!
Check the weather.Might be a little lumpy the next couple of days
My Gregor Baja Special also was a side console. It's now a tiller. The side console came out with no problems. I took 3/4" plywood and fiber...
No T-Top. That boat is too light and a T-Top would make it top heavy.
I think you should go back Tomorrow . If they board you again, ask again if you can stay and fish in their waters, without the required visas....
I'd have to think about taking anything called RETARD!
I have never been asked for it
Any pics? This year has been real good for Pismos. All of mine have been healthy. Pismos don't really have alot of meat (for their size) after you...
Thanks guys I'll be calling in the morning
I live near SDSU and need a yamaha mechanic. Mobile would be better but I'm really looking for someone who is good.
I think it's over kill.
You're only as old as the women you feel
yep Squid co. Buy a 500$ gift certificate for 400$ no getting up at the ass crack, shorter lines nicer people
I just drove by Gus's #2 on Baltimore, still open and yes they do make a good Philly Cheese
This is what happens when "That Guy' buys his own boat. You can take "That Guy" off a sportboat but you can't take that guy out of, well you get...
Thanks Gary. I do wonder if they are only going to weigh bait for hoop netters or are they going to weigh for hook bait too. If you thought the...
What? Gus's is closed??
Over the last 3 years I have turned in 23 wsb heads and only 1 was a hatchery fish. I think the banning of inshore gill nets has had a bigger...
60.00 for ten sand bass? wtf
Nice bug, but where is the "14-16 pounder"?
calling costco in the morning. thanks for the heads up
Why in the world would you go there on opening night? So many better options then Zuniga
Um, put the crack pipe down. BS with no pics or numbers.
Lobster potting? The title of his post gave away the fact that he's an idiot.
The CG can hear you. I did a radio check off Pt Loma, with a hand held and got a loud and clear from the CG in Newport Beach
I told this story to...
I was down there on thursday and found the bigger yt were at the rock pile. It was rough on thursday also. Glad to see bonito again, but they were...
Back to front is the only way i measure lobster.
The season is so long, you had double digits why risk a "clicker" on opening week? Pay the fine and learn from your mistake
I always measure from back to front. That way the " eyeball skin" is not n issue.
I predict at least 5 diver vs. hoopnetter posts before the end of Oct.
Our sport needs more DAD'S LIKE YOU!!!! Your son will never forget this day.
Hi Lou! I'm the Chartermaster on the upcoming Vendetta trip 9/25. Look forward to meeting you.
you need a bigger cooler!
Don't do it. It just isn't worth it. Lobster season lasts until March. I usually don't even start until around halloween.
Fresh Bonito is one of my favorite fish to eat. Good job on sticking it out with the dogs. Seems like they are more aggressive then ever this year.
Twitchy and Blinky? Do tell
I'd like to know who the Sporties were who wouldn't answer a MAYDAY. I've had to assist boaters in the past and would NEVER ignore a mayday if I...
I don't know how the lawsuit turned out. It is probably still pending. LoPresti has alot of money so it could still be in litigation. 5 star...
18 is limited load on that boat
40 on the Eclipse could be a mess. That boat does not drift stern first so people really tend to bunch up in the corner.
Hope you're fishing! Happy Birthday
I use straight mono for both surface and yoyo fishing. i guess I'm old too, it's all i've ever used.
I've fished them all. I love the New Lo-Ann and Prowler, they would be my first choices. All are good boats just go and kill some fish!!
Thanks for the report. We also had very good anchove for bait out of Pt. Loma. we did NOT have 68-70 water, more like 62-63 big drop in pt loma....
I love to take a late lunch break on sat and watch the "launch ramp follies". Any Holiday morning is usually good too!
Lefty's is more of a deep dish all the others you mentioned are thinner crust pizza. I got to try Lido's heck it's just down the street from me.
Venice Pizza House in City Heights. The Venetian in Pt. loma those are my go to's for Pizza
There are many, many more and better choices. And that's all i have to say about that.
even if you do it online, save your card. They may ask to see it later on.
fish the right tide. Less then 3 ft ' no good. more then 6 ft, no good
I used Appliance Science a couple of months ago. Good work, he came when he said he would, fixed the problem when he said he would and he seems...
I'm bringing my 7 year old daughter. What time is the kids tourney?
Dude, there has to be someone in San Diego. Santa Ana?
You should be o.k. as long as you are not in possesion of over limits. Now after the season closes..... that may be another story
yes where is Kozwell
The Point Loma boats will fish the lower nine during the closure. Will you need to buy a ffm for a half day? We shall see. Bugman
Look at me aholes are getting what they deserve. I also don't post location or how I did, nor do the guys I network with. Between the internet and...
Sounds like you guys learned a expensive lesson. Tinsel rod hoopnets move during a ripping tidal swing.
A tide book is your friend
here we go again. What exactly did they ask you for?
It will be better now. Thanks for that wonderful post.
Watch the weather, but that is a very solid boat. I've done it afew times with no issues at all.
How was the weather? Good report thanks
I think the Relentless is now The Seeker and owned by one of the Tafts. I heard that Joel was commercial fishing in Hawaii. Not sure if that's...
When was the last time you heard of lobster being caught north of San Fran bay? It looks like he poach those abs in so cal.
wet (salt water) towels. they are fine the next day. I've taken them to my kid's school for show and tell and they are plenty lively. The key is...
Boat looks like it's been left out in the weather. Also, this is not a fishing boat although you could fish out of it. I would walk away from it...
Nice video. Thanks
That's a whole nother thread!
Great report! Nice fish! But those shoes are gay!! All kidding aside those are some nice bluefins.
Wow. That could have ended badly.
One of the best eats for sure.
Wow! What a day or should I say What a great hour of fishing!
You're eating fresh Bluefin, which is always better then frozen.
Good one a Ping-Pong paddle.
Fyi that's not calico gear either. Great job landing that fish on that gear. I'd have bought a lotto ticket as soon as I got home.
I think you need a bigger cooler!!! Nice
mako... it's what's for dinner. One of the best eats in the ocean. Enjoy and thanks for the 411.
When I take my 6 yr old daughter out on the 1/2 day (premier) I find that she handles a conventional reel with a 6 1/2 ft rod better then a...
Kenny B. is old school, fishes hard and runs a good operation.
X2 Bryan is a fish killing machine.
NO MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM!!!!! They are a bunch of kelp hugging fucks. Packard Foundation +Monterey Bay Aquarium = MLPA.
Nobody beat their prices or their customer service. Plus Joey and his Dad, John, are real nice guys who have been fishing all their lives.
unreel just gave you some very solid advice.
How much was a lobster per lb. this last year? a live,barely legal, male weighs alittle over a lb. I know, ask Rivertake. All he catches are...

your reports are the best! Thanks
sweet!! Is mike gonna have a booth at del mar??
years ago I took his class at fishermans landing. I learned alot from Bud. He will be missed.
zuniga sucks. Too many divers and hoopers.Lots of other places to hoop. Try outside the bay.
aztec from squidco. they are similar to both the ambush and the danielson.
