Salmon will open April 7th south of Pigeon Point.
Am I alone in this? I put about 100yds of mono and 4' of flouro because I hate the tangles and I can have a long soak. When the fish bits and...
Just saw it on the news that they finally opened up the dungeness crab season for areas south of Point Reyes. Time to get some folks. It's been a...
That was some cool video. I too would like to see the sled. How do you keep it form getting snagged on the bottom?
They are having an emergency meeting up in Sacramento. Test results doesn't look good. Looks like crabbing will be delayed until they can...
Nice. Look at all that blood on deck. Congrats on the BFT.
That was an epic video. You don't see too many opah's being brought up. Especially with underwater footages. I thought tuna's circle of death was...
You can't compare the San Diego fleet with the NorCal boats. NorCal as a whole have smaller boats, we only have single day trips. There is no...
Kahuna out of Moss Landing for sure.
Congrats and WTG for making the long trek. Thanks for the intel.
a beast of a slab. Congrats.
excellent first video and great editing with music.
Those are some awesome photos. Congrats!
Thanks for the report. I really wish that the salmon bite picks up. Congrats on the 30" pink meat.
Excellent Father-Son time.
I got one salmon for 4 trips. It's been pretty scarce out there. I was hoping for more but I'm patient. SD trip sounds awesome but will have to...
Glad you got out Bill. I've been spearfishing all winter so my freezer is full of rocks and lings. I just dove Catalina last weekend. Nothing to...
Awesome job. I didn't think there any rock fishing at Moss because it was pretty much a sandy bottom. Those vermillion are huge.
did you guys get to go out?
Nice to see you getting out on the water. LAst time I saw your report, you had trailer problems on the 280. You typically have well photographed...
Nice boat and great report but the last sentence of the report was the best.
Sorry for the late report. On Saturday, I finally got the chance to go out with my brother and 3 friends to the crabbing grounds.
We left Alameda...
bad ass video.
With butter please.
It looks like you didn't make it too far before the breakdown on the NB 280 near Foothill College. Glad you got all fixed up and had a chance to...
Man, I wish the longfins would make it down to the Santa Cruz/ Monterey area. I need to get a bit more intel for launching up north.
time to destroy a hat for the GoPro. I'm all fired up about my upcoming trip. Thanks for those awesome videos.
nice looking bull.
Nice little sacrifice to get some awesome footage. No rush to get that tuna in. I like it.
Looks like you had a great time with your son. I love the picture of him scrubbing the deck. I wish my kid would do that.
flying solo. I dig it!!
I just checked out Bayside. Not albacore but bluefin.
I heard it on the radio too this morning. They were saying 10 miles outside the monterey buoy.
Awesome report and WTG on taking the teacher out. I bet he learned something from you. The smile on his face tells me he'll be doing a lot more...
Congrats and great read. Thanks for the report and sorry about the boat. Glad you got your dodo and tuna. I'm sure there will be a lot more...
It's a crappy feeling when you've worked hard finding a paddy and invested in the chum to get the fish up, only to have jerks poach. Just a...
I'll admit I eat my fair share of sashimi. For this reason, I take usually a parasite medicine once a year. Never know what's in the fish. It's...
Sorry about the loss of your boat. What's more important is the lives on board. glad you guys are safe. Material things can be replaced although...
Kahuna out of Moss Landing. Slayed them last year. Best boat out of Monterey Bay for tuna.
Hooked for life. Great Job Greyson!!
So far, that's the fish of the year. Awesome catch and congrats!!
That is an awesome video. Nonstop rotation of yellows bouncing onto the deck.
Nice report. Let the madness begin!!
I may not always fish but when I do, it's always a little short.
check out Bayside Marine's website out of Santa Cruz. Finally, the salmon is starting to chew.
I would say WSB and never screw with the drag. Preset your drag before dropping your line over the rail. Use the drag to your advantage. That's...
I say let it ride. Bringing a fish to the boat mean shit until it's on deck and snagging the fish afterwards is even worse.
That sandwich was the BOMB!! I typically do not tuna fish sandwich bit that was simple and tasty.
on a dinghy? that thing is bigger than the sink!!
Kahuna out of Moss Landing. fast boat, great crew who love to kill fish. Long day of fishing. No overnighter out of here so expect hardcore fishing.
Bill, it was an awesome trip and Donny does run a bad ass boat. Great crew, great group of guys to share the rails with and having the hot stick...
James Bond stunt gone wrong
A solo Triple. That's bad ass fishin right there!!
The smile says it all. WTG Dale for making a kid smile.
Sorry to heard about your misfortune. I've had the same shit happen to me couple of years back. All 5 setup with Avet 2 speed reels from MJX to HX...
WTG on the nice sizzling report.
Way to stick it to the albies. Excellent video.
Congrats!! That is one big ass opah and a story well told BTW.
I'm guessing 94.7
Thanks for the stiffy!! I leave Thursday on a 3.5 day trip and I can't wait.
Hey Rocky!! Watch me pull the rabbit out of the Hat.!! Awesome way to finish!!
Congrats on a great father/son time. The photos of the prepared food got me convinced. I'm heading up. I hope the viz will be good for me too.
Congrats on popping that Opah cherry!!
Nice way of getting a workout. Congrats!!
TURN ON THE BILGE PUMPS!!
That fish was soooo big, it sank the boat!!
Totally epic trip. Congrats on the JP!!
SICK!! TRULY SICK!!
you need to take your pill or put on the patch a day before your trip for the meds to get fully into your system. don't expect anything to work a...
Where is California City? I tried Google and keeps going to someplace in SoCal.
that's a cool tool. what did you start out with?
some tasty hamachi there.
for me, its always been gut, gill and get rid of all blood before cooling. I mean all the blood, the sack, run a spoon across, all the blood for...
Congrats on the thresher. That is some great eating right there. I got one last year and it was better than any fish.
nice going on the hali's!! we got one 10# in front of Oneill's in 35' OTW using whole squid as well.
The photo of the blood and the kill box is enough. I'm on a 3.5 day but not for another 2 weeks. Can't wait.
Good job in taking a friend and...
Don't be that guy!! You all know what I'm talking about!!
I bought the FoodSaver from Costco and vacuum pack all my catch. Sashimi grade when I pull it out of the freezer. I think the key to having good...
Passport cards will work for Mexico and Canada. Flying to any other country will require the book.
I had the similar story for Saturday. We were out there on my Yellow Master Angler at 5:45 at the hole and the jelly's were thick out there....
My choice would be Marcus on the New Lo-An. Solid captain and crew.
I rather stay out and fish for YT, BFT, YFT than bottom fish. The photos don't show any lings so I can't say it was worth it. Good job on gett'n...
Her smile said it all. Congrats!!
They're up north again.
Congrats on the salmons. We were out there on Saturday and the blues and humpbacks were definitely awesome to watch out there.
It's nice to see reports from the other side of the Pacific. Excellent work!!
So, I finally got the 20' yellow Master Angler ready and decided to go for some salmon after reading everybody's report and I'm glad I did. The...
That blows. Good Luck!!
This is by far the best thread I've seen on rebuilding a boat. You have inspired me to tackle some of the stuff on my boat. I need to...
Those are some nice quality fish there.
WTG on the yellows. Congrats!!
what day are you going and where? I can be your ho. Wait, that didn't sound right. I would love go go fishing with you.
Very nice jump pic. Awesome way to spend some time on the yak and get rewarded with a nice tasting T-Shark. Congrats!!
Sorry you got sick. There is nothing worse than being on the water and leaning over the rails. I typically take the Dramamine the night before I...
Excellent bugs there and good eats!! Congrats!!
Congrats on the limits. I'm getting ready to go on Wednesday and I hope we have similar luck like you guys did. Any tuna left at all?
Awesome video. I love the dance at the beginning going over, under, over. Dosie-Do your partners Y'all!!
Sounds like a great couple of days Dan. There are lots of threshers out there but not everyone is ready for them, trolling or drifting for salmon....
Congratulation on the Opah!! That is definitely a fish of a lifetime. Love that salmon colored flesh.
the drive to pick snails just got way longer for me.
you gonna need a bigger cooler. congrats!!
We were out Saturday and only got 3 for 4 guys. It was snotty out there Saturday. Congrats on the limits.
Strangely, we originally bottom fished...
My friends and I leave Alameda at 6AM Saturday to try our luck for salmon at Dux and Rocky Point. We've been at it for the past three weekend and...
Sorry to hear that. Did the boat leave late? I was on a boat that left at 9PM. got to the grounds late and the fishing was over. the BFT decided...
late start and still got salmon and rockfish. Good Job.
I love seeing the deck solid red. Congrats!!
We'll be there this weekend to hopefully get some.
what an awesome catch. I just wish I can go out when the tuna are around.
nice too see the guy with the spinning reel bendo. looks like you guys had a blast.
As always Alan, I love reading your reports. Although the fish count could have been better, it looks like the quality time spent makes up for the...
Thanks for your helpful tips. I'm down in So-Cal getting ready for some tuna. Hopefully, when I get back to the Bay Area, I'll try my luck at...
Thanks for the awesome report. I'm on a 1 1/2 day next week and getting fired up thinking about some hamachi kama's and some tuna.
That's a lot of sodium on that fillet. The tub of salmon in ice is a nice touch.
Okay BD'ers. So I was out Saturday at Dux with about 70+ boats but only saw one salmon netted. Any others get salmon at Dux or are they all down...
What a glorious weekend!! Congrats on all that blood!! A true fish porn.
Jerry Brown Hollow Core Spectra in White. Daho needle the mono through the hollow core and glued. Uni to uni for the flouro leader. No knots to...
stomach cramps, diarrhea, headaches, nausea, vomiting, and anal leakage? it looks like it one grade below fugu. no thanks but very interesting read.
Got to go on my friends Boston Whaler today targeting salmon north of the Gate. We left Alameda around 6AM and followed the fleet to Duxbury and...
Fishing whenever I can from San Jose. Went out for rockfishing up the Marin coast on Saturday. Slow action all day and small grade of RF. I did...
Excellent report. It made me hungry. Hungry for tuna, hungry to be on a boat, hungry for BBQ.
you should have used the octopus for lings. I've cut open many lings and had octopus in their stomachs.
nice going on the salmon. I need to get out but no longer have a ride due to the economy taking a crapper. I can only dream.
just can't get enough of fish porn. awesome pics.
Makes my mouth water just looking at the last photo. Nice report.
blood, blood, blood from bow to stern. enough said.
What did you guys use to catch the stripers. I'm thinking about heading out this weekend. The WX is going to be cooler so I hope they'll cooperate.
Thanks for the report. makes me want to go out one more time.
Enough said! I'm jealous.
excellent video. nice to see that you guys actually released some fish.
I'm planning on going on the Eclipse on a 1 1/2 day trip in October but I've not fished on her before. Any thoughts on the crew and the boat?
Maybe the guy thought that if Marcus could not get on fish, he can drop the sabiki into the bait tank for some action.LMAO!!
Congrats on good...
Hilarious. I feel like Adolph.LOL except for the invasion of Poland.LMAO!!
I heard that bone fish can be hard to handle sometimes.LOL
Thanks for the effort and report.
That is one helluva nice yellow you got there. Congrats!!
enter the Avet contest. you never know. kahuna is a nice boat to ride to Point Sur.
nice report and excellent photos. Someday, I'll get a chance for one of those WSB.
La Nina? I've got some trips coming up. Should I be worried?
200 miles is a long ways out. WTF, why is it so sporadic lately!!
you guys get an A+ for effort!! You'll get them next time!!
Congrats on the slab. With fish like that, I would fish for a living ;-)
How big was the JP fish? Seems like all the fish are targeting small bait
Seems like Marcus has a knack for finding BF. Hell of a skipper and great crew.
way to kill em. nice blue. congrats!
Like you, I got rid of my boat and onto a kayak. Easier to move around and can get into some real fishy areas. Norcal Kayak Anglers. Lots of info...
My buddy and I was on the 7-5 1.5 day trip. What a great boat and crew. Megabait dd the trick for us in the circle or on the slide and we ended up...
Those are some toads. Nice job!!
Alan Tani, in Saratoga, I believe.
I'll be on that 7/5 trip and look forward to seeing you there. It looks like the weather is going to cooperate and hopefully, we'll get into...
I would agree about the La Nina. It's been cold, windy, crappy weather when we should be enjoying calm sunny days right now.
You had a surf suit so I'm thinking 3/4. brave man.
That is a fat cabezon. The kids will remember that for life.
Sorry to hear about the ticket. Did you upgrade at anytime?
As always, your reports are the best. So thorough with the details. How can I become your deckhand?
Jack kwonsoo Kim
great slabs. Congrats!!
the smile says it all.
there are no overnight fishing up here. the surf is a lot bigger than So-Cal. start at dawn and on a good day return at dusk with cooler full of fish.
Doug, CA DFG Regulation 29.10 (c) states " no more than three abalone may be possessed at any time." I sure hope there were ten of you guys diving...
that short ling is going to be about 3 Benjamins. Ouch!!
Incredible photos. I was waiting for the guys on the boat to have a bent rod somewhere but it looks like it never happened. Still, I would love to...
they are excellent for tacos and fried in beer batter. I also like to bake them in the oven with ginger and soy sauce.:hali_olutta:
It's a black & yellow. A good size at that. Congrats
