Sorry just edited with prices
I have three 40 cu. ft helium tanks for sale that were filled by Westair. They told me that one tank fills four of the 36 inch balloons people...
I have found the Windy app and Sailflow.com to be pretty accurate
Called a few places in San Diego and confirmed as well. Only place that has supply was Westair, but very expensive
Anyone know where to buy good helium in San Diego? The party city stuff doesn't float very good haha.
I am down! We’ve been on them the last few weeks, including two days ago
I’d say no. Only pulled the hook on one fish so far out of the last 25+ hookups

Made yellowtail for my whole college dorm the next day haha
What’s your smoking recipe?
That'll work as long as you marinate in flying fish juice for at least 4 hours prior to usage
You'd rather have wind than not trust me, been out there too many glassy days this year where the bft go lockjaw

Are you in San Diego?

Hey guys found the solution to my problem.

Great report! So it sounds like you got your yummee fish in the middle of the day? Or were all the flat fall/ yummee bites around sunset?
The whole time getting towed back from Cat we were watching the transom flex back and forth as we held our breaths. It was super scary
Don't worry guys, a fellow member came by tonight and got some parts off of it to put on his own boat project. Then someone is coming by tomorrow...
There already is an aluminum plate over the transom and that wasn’t enough.
Got to West cove and noticed it was cracked
No idea, happened between HB and Catalina
If anyone wants to take the boat/trailer off my hands you can have it for free to save me the effort of taking it to the dump. The boat is 21 feet...
I can plug it in to show you it works. Comes with antenna chord and battery leads.

*Also does anyone know of any 24 hour access storage facilities?
I am looking to store a 14’ aluminum somewhere in San Diego at a decent price since I am a broke college student haha. I am living in Point Loma...
Made squid in the same spot? On the 60?
I know that you probably didn't have squid on the boat, but do you know if anyone in the fleet was getting them on the squid?
I am from Southern California and a couple good fishing friends and I are coming to Vero Beach New Years eve through January 6th. We are...
Well I hate to say it but I think the big boys went home for Thanksgiving dinner, or at least they did yesterday and sounds like they were MIA...
This kind of post should not be called an offshore fishing report..
I didn't personally throw any poppers or see anyone on the boat throwing them, but I would bet money that these fish would respond really well to...
Thank you very much capt. New favorite boat.
A fish on the trip yesterday taped to 274?
They didn't filet any fish on board. 5 Star met us at the dock this morning, and those who wished took theirs home whole.
It seemed like it was...
I am 6'1 and I felt like I had plenty of space in the bunks!
Sorry guys forgot to mention my tackle. My first fish was caught on a Makaira 20 loaded 130 lb braid and a 20 foot 80 lb mono leader and 3/0 Mutu...
I though you guys would enjoy a detailed report on a truly epic Southern California day of fishing.
Long Story Short:
Just got back in this...
What a great trip! I'm going to post a detailed report later!
If I saw this earlier I would have gone. Keep me in mind next time you need a crew that knows how to fly the kite. Let us know how you do
let me know if you ever need someone last minute on a kite mission
Exactly what we were thinking when planning our trip
Sorry just realized I posted this in the offshore section, should be in the Inshore/islands whoops
Fished La Jolla on the New Seaforth AM half day on Friday 9/15, and on a private boat today. My goal on the 1/2 day was to help my gf and my...
and that we did! hahaha
Yes the fish bit in the crowd, yes the fish bit away from the crowd, everyone just be happy, the fish bit and everyone still has to be mad about...
Last night on 976 Bruce said he planned on fishing that zone today, he was probably scoffing at the fact you told him what to do
Better luck next time bud
Jumped in the water a couple days ago on a paddy just to see if I could shoot a lockjaw yellow. All I was thinking about was sharks. This post...
Sorry title supposed to say 7/17-7/21. Looking to fish offshore this week for anyone who wants to target tuna preferably the big bluefin. Any day...
Oh yeah and turns out posting on BD to helps others out DOES bring you good karma!
Thanks for the info
Yes we did but did not see much visual life in the area we were in so turned back around
Left Mission Bay around 730 am and picked up a half scoop of small 3-5" sardines for paddies, but we had skipping the yummy in mind. Stopped on a...
Did you fly the kite offshore or just troll around?
Pictures should be up now
They were mostly biting towards the surface or midway through the water column.
We hit Catalina on the way back from San Clemente last week and got a couple yellows so we decided to make a run over there again today and see if...
Did you have squid and sardine in the same bait tank?
Sounds like it's been the same story for everyone the past few days, it was the same exact thing for us yesterday in those zones.
Haha I wasn't complaining, we didn't mind at all that you guys stopped next to us, we were working with the Eldo and the crew on the freedom is...
Was out there today on a pb, we got two. You guys saw us land a yellow and pulled up right next to us haha
I am guessing the boat has a bait tank?
Sounds great thanks guys^
I still have a bunch of fish vacuum sealed from last season and I was most likely going to smoke it sometime this week for Easter. Anybody have...
About 3-4 feet between weight and hook
Sharks were not a problem whatsoever, I don't think anyone hooked one.

hahahaha 200 yards from the rigs LOL guess none of you guys experienced that yellow bite a couple weeks ago where everybody was parked 10 feet...
Were you the guys with tanks? We got a couple in shallow this afternoon in about 8-20 ft of water
you'll see me dropping at 12:00:01
was the wsb on a dropper loop?
Same for us! We hooked a marlin on Saturday and we were only 30 yards off the double rigs. It jumped three times and the old 30 lb snapped
Yellows at dirty ole izors?
Saw one about 2 miles off the east end and one while diving off fox landing
by taxman do u mean hammerheaad? or gws if in PV?
Dangit! Was hoping you would say your line was frayed as heck and smelled like wahoo
Did somebody say wahoo?
did you say 78?!
If there is an issue of tangling a dive buoy float line with kelp, I just tie off my dive buoy to a piece of kelp on the surface. Just a...
Yeah you can hear a boat from really far away, even underwater, but at this speed it would be too late before you realize what it is
where was this video recorded?
How may I join?
Some day you should post a pic with a gaffed black seabass. Would be interesting to see if anyone reacts LOL
Anybody get fish out there today?
Was it a meter mark?
that lure is a topwater and is called Blackwater Baits "Topwater Charlie"
the captain on sundays is a solid capt on that boat
that's a lizard fish you can tell by the eyes..........................
HEMECUDA aka the shark whisperer he scares all the sharks away from your tuna
how many miles off Pedro was this paddy with the pesky tuna?
Yeah I eventually replaced the back hook with a megabait hook after this video
I would have but didn't want to risk it with the bass hooks
My friend just called me from the US Open saying that he was looking off the pier and he saw a dodo swimming just under the surface, chasing some...
there wasn't with your gf last night
Blackwater Baits "Topwater Charlie" is what I was using in this video
Pacific Voyager slays no matter what direction they turn
Can I email it to you? My phone does not have internet
Lord of the Flies?
Hey guys lets all sort these snaking problems out with a quick session at lowers
Mostly less than 10lbs with the occasional school of 15-25 lb fish
Yeah the better grade fish hit the topwater the next day
sorry no idea
I guess its a quantity vs quality type of thing and most sporties will chose quantity, but like I said in my comment above there were a bunch of...
Yeah I wish I had saved my Gopro battery for the next day when it wide open on 15-25 lb fish
Freedom is the best boat overall north of San Diego if you ask me. Affordable and they are getting the tuna if you are willing to go on an overnight
Just got back from an epic trip on the Pacific Voyager where we headed south of the border looking for schools of yellowfin that were more...
I like fishing san O Frey too LOL
Out of san diego? If so i would recommend the tribute. The boat is comfortable and they get fish. In reality most boats are getting them anyways...
Go to Walmart and get the gulp sand worms or whatever they are called. They are basically 1.5" plastics that look like the "nuclear worms" that...
I was thinking the same thing! Some guy said that NOBODY is killing them right now, and I immediately thought of Duane, absolutely killing them
Get on it. New moon is July 15 so you can pretty much guarantee its going to be wide open. haha jk
Have you tried leaving the bananas at the dock?
I once won jackpot on the freelance with 80 people. It actually sucked only like 15 people played haha
Wouldnt be surprised at all. My 30 lb mono was super old and frayed and thats what I blamed on the line breaking.
Broke off 5?! Did they run in the kelp or something?
You have permission to stop commenting now; your arguments are pointless and i dont want to take the time to address your ignorance
broke off clean yesterday on 30 lb with a 2/0 owner ringed hook....
nice. on irons?
Just stop with the "going out to the 150 in a 15' boat isnt safe" argument; that is 100% false if you have a responsible captain and take all...
this video is gold!
We got skunked last week with the irons and we wanted redemption, so we decided to take the harbor boat out to the 150 again. We made a ghetto...
saw a seaturtle off the east end of catalina a couple days ago with bait holding under it!
I once caught a barracuda on a surface iron in Huntington Beach harbor. Irons work everywhere I guess
yep that's me haha
that sounds so good im going to try that next
I guess its just personal preference. The way I look at it is if I was to cook yellowtail and halibut with just salt, without doctoring it up, I...
Broiled for 18 mins on an oiled broiler with olive oil, salt, lemon juice, garlic powder on top. It was pretty good but I would take yellowtail...

the boats aren't your problem, the fish are
But did you use hatchery dust?
By "nice pickup" at Izors, do you mean like pulling drag? or just a solid strike? wsb?
Obviously I don't enjoy surfing [ATTACH]
My point is most of theses people on here view it from a fisherman's perspective, they hope the seal population should be downsized by the gw...
Step 1: Don't put this in the fishing report section
get away from the pack preferably west and you shall score
all you folks don't surf I reckon
go to the backside of catalina, anchor up within 25 feet of the party boats, you should get a yellow or two
Saw some boils some looked to be 300+
Nice seabass! Catalina?
Same exact thing happened on Saturday, the enterprise ran them over
thank you everyone
Thanks Joe! Bass fishing will never be the same now that we are into saltwater! The Shimano gear is working great
hmmmm less than 400$
Looking to buy a new reel for yoyo'ing or fishing the surface iron. Any recommendations? Most likely going to go with a Cousins rod because those...
thank you everyone!
It's my mom's friends boat that he lets us take out. We didn't rent
Tuna and wsb are our next goal!
black anchovy. forgot to mention that when we cleaned the fish they had a bunch of anchovies in their stomachs
I don't know if you guys remember my last post, where I made a goal to catch a yt on the harbor boat. Today was the day. Got out to the 150 spot...
Were you at the double rigs?
Sounds like a perfect scouting trip to me
What color jigs were the biting?
Everyone go to Catalina this weekend so I can have the 150 all to myself
yeah I already reserved my parking spot
On an epic year, the furthest northward I've seen tuna are off of catalina
650 is a good price. I am going on a 3 day on the pacific voyager in july otherwise I would consider.
great report, very informational
Are you high
holy crap all in one days work? crazy. what speed do you troll the xrap?
Deep high tide+ night time in Huntington harbor is always fun. All of the bait rushes into the harbor with big predators following.
Didn't have any surface irons?
Alright I was just wondering nice fish man
Freedom is my favorite boat. I'm guessing 25#
The one you were holding was 30???
Let's just forget about Bluefin tuna and catch some sand dabs
Did u try the double rigs with squid? that should have been a guarantee catch of something
Hey man we're just joking around, don't take it personally. Keep posting reports, more people than you think actually enjoy reading it. And for...
dang that's a HUGE sand dab ;)
Yeah that's the right one

I once had a whale surface about 30 yards away from me one afternoon while surfing in Huntington Beach. That was extremely scary.
Were you using Swedish fish to catch the tuna? LOL
Man doesn't your life suck LOL
Sweet video edit
I thought I was the only one..
What size boat is this? is it a whaler?
He means 20 feet under the boat I'm guessing
because they taste very similar
Nice, I went on that boat in August and caught about 30 fish between my brother and I on a 2 day. It was epic.
Ya I know I'm not complaining. It was still a really fun trip, great boat, and the guys on the boat were really helpful.
I fished on the Mardiosa on Sunday and we didn't catch a single WSB. All the other boats around us weren't getting any either. Although, we did...
