    Bed bugs on boats

    I know on the Pacific Queen we change out the pillow cases after every trip and blankets every couple trips. I also try to hit all the mattresses with Clorox wipes if I can. Haven’t seen or heard of any issues as of yet... I agree though, people are nasty as hell. I was also on a different...

    Liberty - 60 people at $160 ???

    Last week I was on the Grande with 60 people and had the best day of yellowtail fishing I’ve ever had. Everyone was cool and worked together and I didn’t get in a single tangle the entire day. Just gotta stay out of the stern and fish jigs. Really wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

    Full day trip parking in San Diego Landing

    There’s been times where I’ve ubered to and from the landing but that was always using 5 star so only transporting rods and a tackle bag which all managed to fit in a Prius and the rods just went out the sun roof. Then again, I pack light and don’t bring an entire tackle shop with me on the boat.

    7/17 Nados Report and Non-fish Catch of a Lifetime!

    Yesterday I lost my lucky tady 4/0 that I definitely shouldn’t have been fishing on a boat with 60 people. Caught my first yellowtail on it and probably another hundred after that. Repainted green and most of that chewed off. The jig next to me got spun around my line we started cutting. The...

    Best 2-Speed Lever Drag

    I’m with Ali, for that money I’d go for a few fathoms. I’ve got a 25, 30, and 40 that I’ve been fishing hard this year on the PQ and Gavin has the same. Those reels are awesome, especially for such a low price. Overall really impressed with these reels, and that’s coming from a Shimano guy.

    Get a Torium 20, Saltist 40, or Fathom 25N and with that rod it can double as a surface iron rod if needed.

    Liberty 4-26. A day later. Load got bigger and fish got smaller

    Go on a week day if you can. Show up to the landing early and find Paul the deckhand. Tell him you’ve never caught a tuna and if it’s not a huge load he’ll be able to coach you and make sure you come home with fish.

    Late Report: Combat fishing on the Liberty 5/4/18

    Camping at Catalina

    I’m planning on camping somewhere on Catalina with some friends this July. One thing I’ve always wanted to do was catch a yellow or maybe even a wsb from shore and I figured Catalina is probably the place to do it. Anyone have any experience with this? I was thinking maybe throw some jigs...

    I’d probably shorten the braid length or put the top hook directly on the split ring.

    Best beginning LR trip?

    I fish the islands alone all the time and I’ve done 2 1.5 day trips to Colonet alone so I don’t see how it’d be any different. Never had to do any consent forms for that but I’d guess it’s only for if the boat goes into Ensenada or Cabo but I could be wrong.

    Rod for 40NLD2

    My new Fathom 40NLD2 came in the mail yesterday so now it’s time to find a rod to put it on.

    I grew up fishing baitcasters for spotties and LMB so using a Tranx for instance feels a lot more natural to me. They’re nice because you barely ever backlash, you don’t have to guide the line with your thumb, they’re accurate and easy to cast, and they’re compact so they palm in your hand...

    Tips for beginners?

    If you stick to jetties and piers you don’t need to get a license. Not sure if that’s an option or not since it seems you need fish from various places. You can definitely catch quantity of small panfish type species off the jetty on market shrimp and small hooks, maybe size 6 or 8. Make sure...

    The plan is to buy a Blackfin on the East Coast and tow it back to San Diego to fish in 2018. The only problem is we need a roadworthy trailer capable of towing a 32ft boat with an 11ft beam across the country. I know it's kinda a stretch since not too many people trailer that size of a boat...

    taking my boat to the 60 mile bank??

    I think he's saying that Bayliners weren't built for offshore fishing in potentially snotty weather, which is true. It was merely designed as an entry level cabin cruiser to keep the family entertained on the weekends, just like a Searay, and for my family it's been great for that purpose.

    Haha not a cc, I'm looking at either a 32 or 33 flybridge for multi day trips to the islands that I just don't feel comfortable doing out of San Diego on my current boat, it's more than capable of it, I'd just rather be on a something bigger or a sporty.
  292. carterantebi

    taking my boat to the 60 mile bank??

    I've been in both Parkers and Bayliners and fish my Bayliner all the time. For me it's been a great boat for the price, but it pounds just as much, if not more than a Parker once on plane and it's not the greatest fishing platform with such a small cockpit. It's been a constant project since we...

    I highly doubt the Mexican Navy will be waiting at the corner to make sure you don't take a shortcut. If you're not actually fishing in Mexican waters but just traveling through on your way to a spot in international waters, you have nothing to worry about.

    Alright, so now say that you're on a school of really picky bluefin and the bait isn't amazing and nobody is getting bit. Do you sacrifice movement of the bait, or do you sacrifice the stealthiness of not having a ring for the fish to see?

    When shit goes WFO it's pretty common for fish to get lost. It's not the deckhands stealing your fish, they've got plenty at home already. Sometimes they'll take your fish and then halfway to the RSW someone calls for a gaff and they put the fish down in a pile of 50 others and forget about it.

    WTB Mid-Late 80's Blackfin 29 (or bigger) - Twin Diesel Flybridge

    Might want to look into having one shipped from the East Coast. There's plenty of Blackfins for sale out there and for good prices too.

    Looking for fishing/leisure boat, help...

    X2 on the Tiara. If you want to go smaller and closer to budget, go for a Tiara Pursuit. I just don't know about trailerable boats that still have comfortable cabins that are in your price range. You looking to go inboard or outboard?

    Wow... 7 hours is just insane. Sounds like you learned your lesson on always being prepared with various rods. How much do you think it weighed?

    Where can I find a Del Mar 13 skiff?

    I know someone who recently got a 177 surf skiff and loves it. I checked it out but never fished it. I'd say you might want to look into hobie power skiffs since that's a bout as close as you can get to a del mar.

    1974 Mako 19'?

    That probably explains why it hasn't been used in a while. I think I'll give the number a call and see what I'm getting myself into. At least I've got all school year to work on it.
  432. carterantebi

    1974 Mako 19'?

    So what do I need to educate myself on in order to operate a boat with a low transom? Just take my time when easing the throttle? I'm assuming the merc isn't running properly if it's been sitting for a few years, but I'd be the one working on it and I don't really want something that's going...
  433. carterantebi

    1974 Mako 19'?

    I have a feeling if I went for it I would end up doing some kind of modification to the transom. I'd think that would get really annoying pretty quickly whenever coming off plane.

    1974 Mako 19'?

    If only I could find a 4 stroke that didn't cost me an arm and a leg...
  435. carterantebi

    1974 Mako 19'?

    Probably would need a repower if I plan on making it past Pt. Loma:D Is that a 2stroke on there?
  436. carterantebi

    1974 Mako 19'?

    I'm really hoping not. As a broke teenager with zero money, that would be awesome if this is legit.
  437. carterantebi

    1974 Mako 19'? Came across this tonight. Anyone know what this boat would be worth if I were to do some minimal work on it? Is it worth calling the guy or is getting a boat that old and cheap a bad idea?

    I'm currently doing a Calstar 90j and I have all the guides wrapped on. Before I start putting epoxy on it though, I want to make sure the guides are properly spaced. I did it by eye and it looks fine to me, but it would be awesome if anyone could give me the correct measurements from their own...

    Dodo recipes???

    I've currently got a freezer full of dorado fillets among other things and there's so much that I don't know what to do with it all. It's just one of those fish that I rarely get to catch or eat so I kinda wanna mix it up and not bore myself by cooking it the same way over and over again. Anyone...

    X2 on going down to San Diego. Just do a 3/4 day on the Liberty out of Fishermans Landing or you can book a longer charter with them as well. Coronado Islands are doing well and there's a good amount of dorado offshore.

    I would assume you want a good amount of weight to get it down there. The thought of using a yellowtail or tuna as bait is just insane.

    We totally suck so don't get any ideas!

    You'd see me crying like a little baby if I lost some expensive setups to a damn kite. I can just picture the horror in my head of watching a trolling rod slowly fly away like that. I thought losing a Luckycraft to a backlash was sad.

    Thanks for the report. On a side note, that blue Tiara next to you, is that Fan-Sea Nan-Sea by any chance? I've got a neighbor who was selling his boat and I noticed it's not at his slip anymore. It's still on Yacht World and Boat Trader so I'm just curious if it is.

    Tweeker Free Zone

    Chula Vista is open and they're always empty, but you probably don't want to do that. I would probably take your chances with Dana and go early. Glorietta is still closed I think. I believe they said it's supposed to be done by June.

    Sustainability of Calico Bass Fishing

    I just wish the half days would at least try to encourage people to release their fish instead of just asking what your sack number is. In the long run they'd be doing themselves a favor by helping to maintain the fishery for future seasons of half day fishing.

    Best 3/4 Day Boat In SD For Offshore Fishing?

    Liberty for sure. However I've also been on the San Diego and that's a good boat as well. Liberty has bunks though. Offshore is always a gamble, even more so when bluefin are brought into the picture.

    Liberty all the way. Taro is a great captain and knows how to find the fish. All the deckhands work really hard and are always helping out. It's a very clean boat and newly redone and it's set up for longer ranged trips so it's very comfortable for a 3/4 day ride.

We went wayyyy out to a secret spot, and it took about 4 hours to get there, and we fished frozen mackerel for around 45 minutes at most and it was WFO the entire time we were there. However, the fish kept spitting hooks right by the boat, so that was a pain. We did...
