Skippies make good lobster bait. Just saying. Anyone with an extra skippie, call me., text me. Trying to load up on hoop net bait. Joe 858 226-4105
Good job! I like cutting the BFT into strips and use it for catching skipjack!
Salted fish? Do tell...
Mahogony chunks are my favorite.
Check the post for BFT jerkey a few posts down. I have pics of the ones I used, charcoal, water tray, 3 racks. I thought it was made by smokey...
Wow! Nice work! Great when a plan comes together! Those are pigs!
Wow, nice job! I was wondering if inside had anything going on! I decided to stay home and dial up lobster traps. Wrong call!
Thanks for the report, fog sucks. (Along with no fish!)
So if I own 10 hoops, I can put my GO# on all 10, and add the GO # on 5 for whoever I get to fish with me?
Sounds like the same report from a Dr. friend of mine, J.C.! Were you fishing with Jeff? Nice job, way to work it out!
Full moon does not help.
Nice work, does it seem like the full moon is shutting it down a bit? More ice for sure!
Here are the before and after, for smoking. Red is BFT, (in smoker) on top of the plate, and YFT is black, (in smoker) bottom of the plate. I...
Never seen 17lb fluro before! Hard to keep all those bags of meat cold! Good job handing off fish..
Did it ever get out?
There really should be a whole section on these different styles! Gotta say, I think you gotta smoke it, the smoke is an important part of the...
Nice work, good report! Killed 'em!
I wonder if the scars may be from an Orca? Nice size!
Sorry to keep the steing going, but how long were you on a fish like that? They all are huge toads! Congradts! Keeping them cold would be tough!...
I think I saw you out there, we were the only 2 out there, glassy conditions.Trolled for nada...mine is a 15' westcoaster 40hp.
I love seeing the subs pop up out there, wonder what the meter mark looks like!
Biting 50#! That's more like it! Nice grade of fish, nice report!
I guess the atrium cave is in the reserve, so no lobsters. It faces SW, so coming up from the islands does not figure.Would have to make a right...
Sounds like the guys! Thread the needle! They were probably tired from staying up all night. Look for a fish report from them! That cave has to be...
At least they missed the point! It is a long drive from the islands-you need a little shut-eye! What if they had hit another vessel...crazy lame!
Toads-nice work, thanks for the report!
I will get the timing right-
Great job, right place, right time, right skills! A couple of toad BFT! Nice work!
Rolled up and down the 9 today, good bait, (mb), reasonable seas, no traffic, only metered 1 school at the north end, with some porpise.sounded...
"I ain't got nobody, that i can depend on"Carlos Santana- good job, go it alone!
I wonder how long it was before he noticed! Pretty pathetic- was it the bottom scratcher?
Looking at touching up my deck paint, any ideas what this is specifically? Generally? Need to touch up the edges, not the flats-Thanks in advance!...
On a spinner, do you flip the bail when the gaff lands? Water looks glassy, nice job!
(I know it sounds crazy, but) maybe try a sportie? No cleanup, they generally do put you on fish, especially now. Just break out the plastic,...
I have heard of Argon being used in drysuits-
Wow! Just saw this on CNN too. What a terrible thing to happen! 3 am, fog, it kept re-igniting. Very sad...
How did you shoot that dorado while that guy was holding it, without hitting him!
Nice job! Nice choices for dinner!
Hope to see more kill reports! Nice job!
There are some nicer grade fish kicking a$$ on the lighter string. Good effort, good report, good luck!
Someone hooked a marlin at the 226 on Monday, in the afternoon, on the Producer, on bait. Tail walked, jumped, busted off (no doubt light line!) ,...
Lined them up according to roundness at the boat club! Nice!
Quarter those bigger fish and you won't lose meat! Nice job getting them!
Good report, nice to see them so close! In before 2 with 11+ fish!
I got a 42# BFT on 20# fluro Monday, but I would start with 25 and move down. Size 2 mutu light circles worked for the YFT, but some...
Just my 2 cents, the producer (also) seemed to make sure the kids were bendo-
I think it is a #2 owner mutu circle, not gamatsu (mispelled). I also used #4, but no photos-
Pics of the small wire hooks tomorrow.
The kids were stoked! Happy to see this-cool kids!
Went out overnight on the Producer, ended up at the same spots as the rest of the fleet-302-226. Tried glow-in-the dark flatfalls from 2:30 am-4...
Predict wind seems to work too.
San diego boat and ski club cutting station-AKA the old folks home! We built the other washing station, cleaned a ton of fish there!
We fished the same area/parking lot yesterday, saw the producer there along with the fleet. Ugly green water-throwing a ton of bait seemed to be...
Good stuff, as I am trying to set up my Garmin Echomap 50s also. My transducer is a small transom mounted one, unknown (at this time) which one. I...
I booked a LL for 30 on sunday on the producer for $250 +, leaving 9 pm sunday back monday 6pm. Just bumped into it.
Mola's and GWS are frequently mixed up.Very similar.
Ballpark where? Looks like the 302- (lol!)
Good info, I am headed out on the same boat Sunday. Hopefully they get into a better bite-thanks!
Nice job, whereabouts? (General area)
Nice job, nice to have options!
Thanks for the report-nice grade of Fish!
I guess a clear definition of "Salvage" from them would be useful.
Great job, nice size fish!
GIF? I love acronyms! I know GFYS!
MB bait sucked yesterday, it all rolled very fast! I was not the only one who got bad bait yesterday too-
Nice job, if only my 15' boat could do longer pulls! ( safely!) Good report!
Thanks for the info, i saw the 2 bait boats had just unloaded, and i asked the bait technician how long they rested the new load. He said at least...
Dang! At least you were right there, poised for the kill- victory! Move forward, rebuild, conquor! Next time will be more epic!
I fished the 9 today and heard you guys on 72. My bait rolled fast from mission bay. It all died b4 the 9. Anyone else get bait from MB today? My...
What did the fillets look like? Nice job, thanks for sharing!
Transom mounted garmin echomap 50. Thanks for all the info, I have seen whales on a friends fishfinder, (not a mammal finder). Good stuff..
Very nice! Where is the other one? Toads!
Dang, i must have been just north of the yft!
Got an early start with a nice 1/2 scoop of smallish dinos from mb. Went to the upper 9to the border, trolled some porpises (mispelled) for nada....
Hang in there! It will turn on!
I went to discover baja today, for my 15' valco, for all necessary paperwork to fish the islands. I was told it would be about $ 250.00, plus a...
Sorry boys, Sold!
Thanks for the scoop about discover baja UC, they are right down the street!
My boat is 15', (not including motor), are there paperwork exceptions for boats 15 and smaller?
Check out the inshore PL report at the tanks!
Dang! Figures i went to the 9! (For nada!) Thanks for the report!
Looks great! Where did you buy those!
Thanks to all for the report(s)! Probably be a zoo this weekend-
Golf sucks-don't give up! It will happen! You are close to the big one! Don't play sports where you have to wash your balls-
Thanks for the report! Flat? Wind? It will not be long!
Sorry divers made a bad scene! I do not think divers change the fishing potential, as divers strive to not scare fish. Can't shoot them if they...
I have noticed the usual pack o' macks being harder to find there. I have been going to the first kelp at Pt. Loma, a lot more macs, faster to jug up!
Never seen trees on the edge of the water like that!
Thanks for the intel-the 9 is ready to go!
Hope you shared some fillets with him! Nice job!
Nice. I did not want to ask! looked for clues in the photos. Could see the coast in one-
Great job! Round ones-
Nice! It will not be long.
66 degree water, flat, glassy, a few porps, a few patties loaded with bait, but no action. Trolled Rap magnums north/south for a couple of hours,...
So I took out the boat today, and thought I would give the "test" a try again. This time, I received a ACK in 11 seconds! I have no idea why I...
Hello, I am not bashing anything, just reporting what facts I have found directly from the USCG. I am also trying to assure my distress works,...
Looks like a larger triggerfish!
A friend of mine got a 35# YT off a patty inside the 43.
Nice job! I had a big one unbutton after an hour +, great job getting yours in! There is hope...
I have found that Perrier ice seems to last longer. I got the metal bubble wrap on line cheap, but it is a great insulator. Used it in a wall,...
Thanks for the write up-it inspired me to do it on my 2003 40HP PTEFI 4 stroke. The only rub was disconnecting the shift linkage. See this utube...
Have you tried moving this on Spearboard?
Ewe ore verry smert! Got me to lok! Sad it is believable! Dalgum!
Thanks for the report-there are no shortages of idiots in boats to kill a potential bite! You will get them next time-should be a great season!
Nice-I am sure you will be getting shots with boils all around the boats! Maybe a patty with schools of YT/Dorado- Thanks for sharing!
Nice Job! It was the IPA's that did it-
I am told by Boat US (the folks who give us the MMSI #) to send a position/routine/direct/ with another vessel using their MMSI number. I do not...
More info- I did have to click "position' on the call type, which is not saved. Cannot set "position" and "test", one or the other. I did not see...
Thanks-the Std. Horizon did not connect with my hand held GPS-so I went to Icom! LOL!
That must have taken a while! Throw out a couple of Rapalas-
No plotter- the radio is GPS enabled already, and has good numbers.
Dang-should have thought of that-replacements! Thanks! thought there was a new trick I was missing-
Thought I bought them at Turners-not too worried about using them, but trying to understand the concept! Thanks!
My mind cannot absorb what you presented! Outrageous work, thanks for the tutorial on how this was done. Beautiful work!
Hello, i mistakenly bought some open eye Siwash hooks. What is the deal with open eye style of hooks? Can't figure. Snelling? Thanks!
I bought a Icom IC-M330G, GPS enabled radio and registered a MMSI number, which I entered in the radio. I tried to test the distress signal a...
Congadts on the new parts/tune up! I work on a heart team in town here, (San Diego), and see crazy stuff everyday! You will get stronger and...
Was the water that blue? I fished PLWed. and there was a nasty red tide blowing up, made for mud like water! Great shots!
Seaguar, easy and strong.
Thanks for the report-you will get them next time!
Nice job! It's not brain surgery! (Which I have been in many!) Great recovery!
Nice, great plan "B"!
Hello, I as well have been concerned about making sure my distress button on my GPS enabled radio (IC-3000G), with a properly entered MMSI #...
Alright, I have a ICOM IC-M330 fixed mount radio, GPS enabled. I am trying to assure the distress button sends the GPS coordinates when activated....
Nice gun, GLWS!
Did you eat the sailcuda? Crazy looking! Great job catching and reporting!
Dang-bump for a great price! If only it was a little larger-
Nice! Thanks for the report, and good job!
Nicely done! Next time will be even smoother! Hopefully, I will "be in the same boat" in the future!
Dang, sounds like a deal for someone!
Wow! Beauty of a gun! Nice work, wish i had the bucks lying around...
So each sheet ($20.00) is 40#? Shipping will be a bear! People may be hesitant to pay now and wait.Just saying. I know a friend who could use a...
The whistler works too...
Due west outside the kelp, and the forbidden zones, look for jumping-puddling bait, the meter will be thick. It takes time...
I think the fine for not getting in your lobster report card is now $22.00-
Nice job on the gaff shot while solo! I was in the same area Sunday too, nothing like that toad!
Thanks, i have yet to hoop, but good write up!
Went bug diving off Pt. Loma Naz.college, 40 ft of water. Nice seas, no wind early, little current, vis was 20'+ Plenty of bugs around, most...
Very nice! I thought the 1st wed after the 15th was the end. (A few days from now-) that bigun was nice!
Thats what shakedowns are for! Clean water? Thanks!
Thanks for the report, was going to give it a shot if the wind dies down.
Pelagic quit making these 6 years ago, and could not tell me where they got the zippers from. No help-
Could not find a zipper pull large enough. #10 was too small. Bob's did not have zippers that large either, so I am having Velcro installed....
Cool, hope they keep it stocked so you do not count on it and they are out. Who will be starting a delivery service on the water? Maybe like a...
Thanks for the intel-I heard about a shoe repair place, big Bob's in Clairemont that may be able to do it.
Both zipper pulls broke on my pelagic kill bag. Anyone know a place in San Diego who can do this fix? Anyone has a zipper replaced?
Left pt.lo.in the thick fog with a healthy scoop of 4-6" dinos, the fog broke just off the point. Went to the 182 lookinng for rumors of chuna...
Woah! Toads! Nice work!
I looked at the SI ramp today on my weekly trip to West marine, and it looked open! One side of the dock was fenced off, but I saw a boat dropping...
Good info- I was thinking of trying on of these-good karma paid off! Thanks!
SI is closed, try gloretia bay on Coronado. Get there early or parking is questionable.
Wow..(I like to keep it short) TMI?
REI is having a black Friday sale. $150 for the app-
Would love to purchase this if available ! 858 226-4105 Thanks!
Yo Doug, cannot make this trip, (dentist!) but keep my number for future trips. Joe @ 858 two26-4105 would love to go, experienced, great at...
