    2.18.2020 Catalina east end

    Great report! Bonita is a such a tasty fish. Perfect for private boaters like us bc you have to bleed it and ice it well immediately. Just goes to show that you don't have to have glamorous fish to make great food! Pics look awesome! Ming

    Tough Sledding at the Island 7-17-19

    Eric - I’ve found that it can be tough to catch Mack’s at the island. Especially greenbacks. I’ve had some luck chumming cut squid along kelp lines and getting Spanish Mack’s. I don’t know of a particularly good spot though. Just wherever I happened to be. Oftentimes I strike out trying to make...

    Tough Sledding at the Island 7-17-19

    Unfortunately you won't be able to get sardines at the island. Try making bait like the other suggested using Sabiki rigs or just small hooks with squid strips. Macks and smelt.

    Catalina 7-15, Hot Bass Bite

    Those lobsters in Big Fishermans cove are HUGE! Like those ones you see in the photos from the 1920's. That cove has been closed to fishing since forever. I will say that I was a vocal opponent of the MLPA's when they were being created. That said, it still amazes me how many people fish...

    Cat 7/10 quick report

    Hey guys. Short report for those heading out. We fished all up and down the front side and it was wide open calico bass at every spot. Probably the best bass fishing I've had at Cat in years. Nice quality too. Some pesky barracuda also. We hooked only 1 yellow but it absolutely smoked us...

    Sanddabs Off PT Jan 23rd

    Nice job! Do you get alot of little bones throughout the meat? The last time I caught an incidental sand dab while rockfishing in LBC, it had so many little bones throughout the meat that I couldn't eat it. Maybe I cleaned it wrong or maybe it wasn't a sand dab?

    friday 10/27

    This thread is awesome! I'm always debating the same things. The best answer is to get out there whenever you get a chance. With fishing, you just never know. When I got my big bluefin earlier this year, I had already decided not to go but my buddy talked me into it. Good luck!!! Ming

    Long Beach Quick Report 8/26

    Honestly, I haven't found a consistent pattern over the last few weeks. I've gotten them from grey light to dusk, but the best bite time varies each day. Haven't really coincided with the tides either. Right place, right time I guess. Ming

    Long Beach Quick Report 8/26

    More on the dropper loop, but a few on flyline too. I've found the key to be stopping on the right school. There are lots of bait marks and small fish marks, but I've been trying to concentrate efforts on yellowtail marks. I've been marking them down to about 50ft. 2oz torpedo sinker on the...

    Long Beach Quick Report 8/26

    Hey guys, Quick report since I've got work. Mediocre sardines at San Pedro bait, but that's been par for the course recently. Did a quick look offshore outside the rigs, but didn't see much. 150 was dead early in the AM. Then hit up the 105 and green buoy areas with flylined and...

    Help with my fishfinder

    Hey guys, I just bought an boat that has a Garmin 400c fish finder installed. Once I get past 400ft, the fish finder can no longer read the bottom and shows lots of interference. The specs say the max depth is 1500ft. It has dual frequency 50/200. My questions: 1) Is this normal for...

    Oceanside 8/19 WFO

    Hey guys, Decided to launch from Oceanside at 4:30AM. Bait line was short and the deans were great. Headed out 12 miles and drifted a kelp with birds on it. Started out going 2 for 4 on doritos and then it turned into straight yellowfin 20-30lb'ers. They were biting both chunk and...

    Newport Tuna?

    Saw that the Newport boats really nailed the tuna today. Anyone know what area they are fishing? I've been launching out of Oceanside, but it would be great to launch closer to LA. Feel free to PM me. Thanks, Ming

    Oceanside 8/12

    Took my new old boat out for her 2nd voyage. The first time out I got a nice yellowtail at the Horseshoe. This time, I decided to trailer it down to oceanside for a previously good tuna bite. Well, it was a slow morning, but I ended up going 1 for 3 by fishing the working terns. 40lb class...
