Brian, what if your 2nd post of these 3, was your only post this time around, and it only had read as follows:
Just post when you want.
I've never had any luck hooping in Newport, ever, the same with Oceanside. I've learned while striking out in these 2 spots that all lobster DO...
That says it all, absolutely SICK!
Nice job Steve!
I believe the Red Cup Navy had something to do with it!
I can only take you at your WORD Robert!
Kudos to you, I'm glad the FULL MOON works for you.
I've never had a successful night with a close to...
Yes, Yes, and Yes Joe.
I agree Ron, hoping though will be done by then.
I'd just sent the following info to another person, and I got to thinking I should be able to give this to everyone without compromising myself...
Looks as flat as 2 bee-bees on a bread board.
Ever think about catching more than 2 at a time Kurt?
They look like really good quality for local fish, congrats!
Fresh mashed sardines you say, nice job!
Nice job on the Halibut John, both of them!
I'd take 5 any day, throw in the girls, and it's all GOOD!
Do not sell your report short Matt!
99% of reports have something in them benefiting someone/some/most/all.
Great job getting your kids...
Thank You for your report.
What was the cost of a scoop and 1/2-scoop of SQUID these days?
15 isn't bad, hate the FOG.
Great job, congratulation!
Thank You for sharing George, all good stuff IMO!
Great stuff Dan, thank you for sharing, and the PIC!!! John.
I have no interest Steve!
You are on fire Chad!
Thank You, good stuff!
Can you manufacture a PIC embo?
Agree fully, thank you HOOPS!
Whether here, or offline, would love to see them Vince!
It's not that they're not hungry, rather they're resting after gorging so they can make...
YOU . . . HAVE . . . BECOME . . A . MONSTER!
Great going Glendon and Dad, and Chris!!!
Hope you saved that carcass?! Need it for my hoop nets!
Like putting 50 cents in a vending machine, cha-ching,
and out comes the CODS, very nice guys.
That's what I'm talking about Ryan.
My cages are also wrapped in smaller squared wire.
There's a few other bells and whistles to further get the...
Very nice looking REDS indeed!
I've been thinking about something for 5 weeks now, since the lobster opener.
Cages versus tubes, tubes versus cages.
I use cages, always have,...
Bump! I think Bug Rider needs a shower!
It sucks when you encounter boat issues, you figured it out though and moved forward, accomplished your GoPro goal with video action, caught a few...
What's the one common thing you see around every Lobster in the SICK PIC, Vic?
The WITCH aka MY wife says I need to stop whispering to the...
Nice job Dad! [IMG]
Great attention to details Jeff!
I agree, you can't beat that!
Sent you feedback Joseph.
No worries Brad.
This coming weekend the moon and tides DO NOT line-up for me, but I see see a small window of opportunity on Saturday 11/16,...
Triggerfish hands down, nice job guys.
Very nice Halibut!
Think I'd have my hand in it gills though, versus holding it with that paper clip.
Always have 1 or more gaffs ready to say...
Nice job Kurt, gotta love the 3-way swivel!
When in doubt throw it out!
Great job again Chad!
I agree, go gettum, they are still there!
No Tom, I'm in SMB.
Epic weather, Epic sunset, Epic fishing, Epic catching, Epic dinner.
Dropped our 10 nets at 2ish with sardines in the cages.
Started pulling at...
Agree 1 million %!
Nice job, looks a bit chilly out there.
If it's meant to be, and it was, it will happen.
Better to be lucky versus good.
Just be glad the wire leader held out long enough to get the T,...
Gotta love it when you put the screws to them . . . . BOTH of them!! I have no tolerance for other fisherman that flake out, it’s all or nothing....
Truly appreciate the report, thank you!!!
Great job guys/Tom!
Agree, most excellent Lingcod bait!:fighting0061::Dynamite:
Looking thru the pictures again . . I see the quality of your bugs based in the 2 smallest legals on the north end of the last picture, and the...
So that’s the $#!+ that keeps coming up on my snag line.
Can't tell if it's feet or fathoms . . .
50 feet WSB, 50 fathoms BFT.
NAVY lobster, radioactive!
SICK Glendon, just sick, great job!!!
Fresh Sardines you say, pulling at 645 you say, limits for 2, great weather, man that all sounds so familiar, but I just can't place it. There's...
I heard you did good also last night Glendon, timing, location, timing, location, good to see you and your Dad, the new ride looks quite nice,...
Last night we were not hooping around Long Beach or San Pedro.
Hey Steve, I've dropped my nets as early is 11AM before.
There's never been an issue with the bait being gone at dark either.
The tide thang,...
Yeah there was room for it in the bait tank, LOL!
Great job, and lots of great eating steaks there.
Dropped our 10 nets at 145 PM.
Fresh frozen Sardines for bait.
Depth was 25-27 feet.
Weather turned out to be beautiful, mostly flat, no wind.
Great job guys, congratulations!
Heard all they did was open the valve until they had enough room for another 14.5 million gallons, repeat. John.
What?! No love, damn, with that Avatar you should be getting it each and every time, so in the spirit of RandyV HooWa or in this case pahO, nice...
Please keep up the RECON work, we all want to know the latest.
TIP: Next time take those bullet Tuna and/or Skipjack, the gills of each stinks for...
Great job Lal! Also a 45 minute trip in the harbor is mandatory when it's pea-soup thick FOG, slow and steady even with a radar. Another one bites...
Attaboy Ted, no deeper than 25 feet, freekin' love it!
NOTE: in the past I've used the same bait over and over again, maybe 4 trips, but sooner...
Loved the read, old skiff picture took me back, love it when Spanish Mackerel are in the bait tank, and always hated losing a family member and...
Not too bad when you can play the Phenomenal Rock fishing CARD!
I'd expect a bigger grade of fish there now, but they're likely still at SBI, Yellowtail that is. What was the cost of the trip? Any cod fishing...
Saturday has been locked-in since we rested last weekend.
I know we'll be out early, just not sure how early. Friday night? LOL! Who knows at this...
That picture really does put the 240 into perspective!
Thank You for adding the picture Kevin!
The picture does not do the 240 pound t-shark any justice, and guessing you've caught plenty of 240's before, great job!
As stated above Lizardfish, good Lingcod and Halibut bait when kept alive and fishing in specific area for either one.
It never gets old Glendon!
My granddaughter just turned 3 and pretty freekin' soon I'll be trying to put her on her first legal Halibut, of course...
Nice job, go get'em!!
Awesome job, and if he's not hooked yet he is now, great job Dad!!
It doesn't get any better that this/that, great job!
Now that's sweet mileage indeed!
Agree not going to CAT in fog without radar, good call IMO.
Great tip, great pictures, great report, very nice Yellowtail indeed, great job!!!!!
IMO it depends on the area/location, and sometimes the good period starts closer to March, if at all, there can be a few down years, and last...
Great job on the Yellowtail and Bonito!
Nice job, welcome back!!
Wind and Swell can march your nets into the rocks, jetty, breakwater, kelp, and/or close to shore if you don't pay close attention to them.
I needed that laugh, thank you Glenn!
Sounds familiar Glenn, thank you. John.
I actually took the gaff off the boat figuring you’d take it. Okay, no worries then. John
Always nice to know where the fish are not concentrated, and thank you for your report.
My fishing partner Bryan has given himself the name Lobster Picasso.
Great combo trip indeed, yellowtail & lobster & lingcod oh my, great job, love the pictures. John.
Here you go Butch, the current rigging of my hoop nets, and full of nice lobster, enjoy. John.
Feel free to PM me your GO-ID Dave and I'll see if it matches a handful of nets I found this week. Additionally, where I've been hooping there's...
Speaking with a number of the local commercial crab/lobster/sheepshead fisherman/boats at the launch ramp various days this week everything seems...
Tonights report, Friday, 10/4/2019.
Sick fishing again, sardines, 27 feet, stellar weather, 2 other boats in the neighborhood, handed off sardines...
Nice job and glad wifey is happy.
Great job! Never had any luck in Newport, your report gives me hope.
Sweet, great job!
More than happy to give you a nice gaff have too many on the boat now. Just contact me we’ll get it done.
2 legals is better versus none, keep at it.
The wind was blowing 15 knots where I hooped opening night. The coast guard helicopter was out shining a spotlight on boater who was close to...
Years ago Mike I'd get guys together and we'd chat about technique, rigging, locations, depth, bait, cages, bridle rigging, driving the boat,...
Tonights report, Thursday, 10/3/2019.
Sick fishing, sardines, 27 feet, beautiful weather, 2 other boats in the neighborhood, had 9 legals in first...
The wind is crazy out there, we stuck with it though.
31 feet, sardines in the cages, and managed our limits in 55 minutes.
5 males and 9 females,...
You are posting advertisement for birth control!
Are you fucking kidding me!?
You hijack my report with 8 fucking self serving posts.
Stay the fuck away from me!
I've never posted 1 video on youtube, never.
The extra 10 nets were donated to the Boy Scouts over 15 years ago long before a GO-ID, along with a...
We were not as lucky tonight, mother nature handed us our asses, we ended 2 sets of 10 pulls with 3 huge legals and 38 shorts, just snotty all PM...
The night I had 20 nets on my boat I'd found 10 nets at Catalina the morning after the opener, was checked by DFG the same morning and they...
Agree whole-heartedly, yesterday on the water chatted with Lifeguard boat, harbor patrol boat, and waved at the sheriff, leaving nets in the water...
I've had 20 hoop nets on the boat before, what do you think about that!? You need to get out more! Good Luck!
You know where I mainly fish and hoop Vic, we'll be back at it tonight. Seaya. John.
Night-1, 7-males and 7 females, liked the balance.
Night-2, 8 males and 6 females, liked the balance even more.
Like clock-work, that's all I can say. Bait is sardines, depth 30 feet, location is ocean, DANIELSON HOOPNETS, my partner and I limited opening...
Love your FN avatar Anthony!
Looks like you were showered in blood.
. . . shame I can't get out there, know exactly where the fish are, appreciate the heads-up though.
Sooner or later they need to eat, nice job!
Great job on the Yellowtail Doug!
Even better job bleeding and icing them down!
And a superlative job slamming this report up for those weekend...
. . . . bet you made lot's of new friends with that picture.
You'll get'em next time! Thank You.
When was West Cove renamed? Thank You.
Personally, I'd be headed to the little island . . . has all that stuff in your avatar and more at the moment. Good Luck!
How much did you pay for your scoop of Squid?
Nice Yellowtail, congratulations!
Try using a different browser, maybe Chrome . . .
Enjoy it Philip!
My Son has Bees also, he's in Texas and their second year of doing it produced 609 bottles at $6- a bottle, filling up all the 5 gallon water...
Nice load of Yellowtail!
X2 lock it!
Splat goes my Frapp on my laptop, LMAO! WTG Chris!
Truly appreciate all the information Doug.
I hear there's good quality and volume of Yellows at SBI & SCI & SRI.
If you only knew the kinds of fish people release inside HH, there's easily 10+ pound Calicos. Should take Yellowtail and point him at Chris'...
I don't care what they are Chris, good luck.
I personally, didn't find your report too long Ed. I've been reading through system core-dumps for 35 years, now that's a long read. Reports like...
Way to go Cory, please take care of yourself!
These 2 sharks are not Makos or Tigers or Bulls or White Tips or Black Tips or even a Hammerhead. Kinda like a guy riding his motorcycle at...
There's a very fine line between brave and stupid!
Zipties? You're FN kidding right!!!!!?
You're playing with something you won't recover from!
It will be quick and extremely painful, I sure hope...
I wholeheartedly agree with that!
Sure hope those fish were iced-down?
I hate seeing fish on the deck looking hard on the outside and mush inside....
. . . should be $90- of fish fillets for $40- scoop of squid IMO, tip optional depending on the pass of squid. You should look into making your...
Beats being on the mainland!
SLUG Yellowtail indeed, great pictures too!
Thank You for saving some for the rest of us.
That's some good karma, your next trip should be even...
Yep, that's what she said alright.
Ice-cube brains? Tashtego has the eyes of a mastermind at work!
Man that was a long report, the old adage be careful what you/I ask for.
Kids looked stoked and it's validated by end-of-day kaboom CRASH out like a light. Great job putting them on Cudas and Yellows, and capping it off...
Very nice report and pictures, thank you.
. . .appreciate you posting your report, details are details, good or bad or in-between, thank you.
Why can't you just copy and paste the report!?!
Great job, congratulations!
Water is warming rapidly, fish are moving, you gave it go.
Nothing ventured nothing gained!
36 on that boat is plenty of room IMO.
I fished it when it was the Happy Man @ Marina Del Rey Sportfishing, poker...
Hat Trick, great job!
Tuna look bigger than 20 pounds, how big was the Bluefin?
Crazy temp at South Island, it's 66 degrees in front of Redondo Harbor.
Thank you for the nugget details!
It just doesn't get any better than that, like eating out of your own garden.
Lead, follow, or get the F outta the way, dislike followers.
Are you kidding me, FN sweet!
Your Son just did something very few ever accomplish, man-O-man.
Great job Dad/Art and Son/?.
Water looks like the green I like, nice job Jason, bet the boys had a great time, nice job.
That's a whole lotta checks and $$$$$ for one-team, great job guys!
That RED is really red!
You never skipped a beat Cory,
and right back on the water like you were never gone.
Gotta love the support systems we...
Great job, persistence pays off Paul, congratulations!
As it relates to Grandpa, those are not wrinkles those are wisdom lines, heard Grandpa say checkmate all the way down here in SoCal! Pretty damn...
FN sick Halibut fishing and pictures!
Thud! Clank. Thud! Clank. Thud! Clank . . and a cooler full of DC's.
WTF am I doing down here when it seems all the Halibut are UP THERE, great job!
Great job, those are my favorite eating size for Halibut sashimi!!
He's hooked now, and Grayson has the right perspective!
“man if we go home now...
Awesome guys, and Pink Floyd in the background, now I'm Comfortably Numb!
Man the other thread is a lonnnnng thread! Man your boat has more TITS hanging off it then a strip-club! Glad I don't have a horn or I'd be...
Man is your boat tricked out Doug, great job!
. . . . was going say those look like the perfect size Calico's for Tacos. Love the rubber deck! . . . always need a bucket on the deck too . ....
Depending on how much gas you're willing to burn . . . .
I'd hit the 181, nothing then move to the 182, nothing head north to SCI Pyramid Head...
Loved ALL the pictures, excellent recap, absolutely a phenomenal report!
I too can vouch for Ernie @ Ryan Boats, a real good guy, took care of my Evinrude 88 SPL for a number of years, and he also figured out issues...
That's a whole bunch of fish guys, nice day indeed.
I didn't know the 5 second rule applied to bait flopping on the deck.
Kudos to the kid for his Yellow!
Pay no attention to the CRAB man behind the curtain!
Damn that fish looks yummy, great job on the 4 quality Yellowtails!
I appreciate the kind words!
There's 5-10 guys who are out there every single day, not me, and they know every square inch of SMB.
Thank You for he comeback Ben, and I suppose you just found those ghost shrimp in your front pocket right, LOL! Again, stellar job!
What pound test line did you use on the ultralight gear?
Those are good eats, enjoy!
I've only had 1 time in all the years Nacho's been scooping bait in the LA Harbor complex where the Sardines were only decent, and he squared that...
It's always good to be out on the OCEAN, THE REST IS A BONUS.
Hey Glendon, and Hey Wally (I'd like to think so also, kind words, thank you). Now why did I get bait at Redondo when I could have saved time and...
That's really really really good stuff Dad, A+ job!
Bait from Redondo Bait, sardines and some Spanish Mackerel,
Fished Hermosa for 2 drifts and one 14 inch San Bass released.
Shot across the bay,...
Absolutely SWEEEEEEET, Father and Son!
Good detail Joe, keep at it you'll get them soon, surprised you didn't see a Marlin.
Fish that have moved can be found versus fished that have moved-on are likely at another island and/or inshore and that will take more effort to...
X2, fully agree.
Fish bigger than the net? Unless you're using a fish tank net . . .
If there's a next time . . . get a gaff, and that won't happen again.
MMMMM, Cowcod tacos!
I sure wish the mismanaging CADFG would open-up the Cowcod species partially, with a few restrictions of course. Nice job...
Great job Dad!
Hey Danny, . .. been a while now . . . hope you're doing good?
It'd sure be nice if the fisherman in-the-know would educate the other fisherman...
Love the picture of your Son hosing off the gear!
Wait until your Son hangs the right kind on hat little stick and reel, then it's time to upgrade...
What a MESS-O-COD, everyone was involved, nice pictures too.
Nice grip of Yellowtail, congratulations to all!
"my boat partner's new wife" uhoh, enjoy it now!
Keep at it, you'll get the target species next time!
It just doesn't get any better than this, great trip guys.
Congratulations to both of you, great job!
Nothing like the taste of fresh Yellowtail, nice trip.
Sick fucking trip!
You don't need anyone else Vic!
absolutely stellar video and if your fish were part of the meal just FN sweet.
Well that's great news Tom, let's hope there's still plenty to go around.
Let's pray they make it thru all the net boats below the border.
I appreciate your feedback Ryan, good to know, thank you.
Shame there's not a slush or some refrigeration of some kind on the boat to keep those quality fish fresher versus sitting in a sack in the Sun...
Exactly, and if you can't find the right bait grab the FN bait net and find one!
3-way swivel, drifting .7 knots, perfect speed IMO.
Yes. The fish inhaled the bait, single hook inside mouth lower-jaw and treble in the gills.
Great post Bill!
Nice White Sea Bass, congratulations!
That mylar crap has to go, does damage to fish and mammals and tired of reading about it, damn cruise ships!!!
Thank You for the heads-up John! John.
Short, and loaded with info, nice, it's all in one's perspective.
Water is cleaner.
Fished rock fish
did well on dead squid...
Hey Rich, your report gave me what I needed to finally dial this in Friday 6/7, albeit it took me to almost noon . . . . . . THANK . . . YOU . . ....
How appropriate, that is a PIG!
VERY NICE INDEED, great job!
Just 4U Steve . . . .
Launched @ Marina Del Rey, and WE headed down south to pick up some nice Sardines @ Redondo Bait. Fished the corner for 2 quick drifts for...
Now that's what I'm talkin' about! YEP, that an FN bullseye!
Agree, the conditions UP THERE look great and once the water hits 64 look-out, my opinion of course. Thank You for the information/report!
The RED CUP Navy is alive and well!
Great job on the 5 Yellows!
LOL! You pushed a button with that! LOL! A+!
I'll take the 2 cups we have and leave it at that.
My first reaction was WTF is up with that?!
Congratulations, very nice indeed!
Hopefully that little GWS will grow-up quickly and start dining on some of the excess Seals and Sea Lions along our CA-coast.
Best of luck moving forward Cory, I'm sure you do feel blessed!
You shouldn't have to feel like you need to seek forgiveness for posting your...
It's certainly what it's come down to if you have-fished, do-fish, and/or plan-to-fish SMB. It's always been the opposite until last Saturday for...
Your blessed alright, my Mom lasted 4 months after her brain surgery.
Every day your Mom is alive is a special day!
Thank You for sharing THAT,...
Excellent job indeed!
Losing that treble like that, not sure I buy that lure again, just me?
Here's the other details Chris.
I couldn't have caught the fish without my fishing partner Bryan!!!
Fish hits and it's and it's chaos...
It's been awhile George, and I hope you're doing well, thank you.
I was fishing outside of King Harbor, yet close enough to run in and have the fish weighed. Normally the scale is at the Redondo Sportfishing...
Set out for Halibut, not a scratch, called it quits at 115 PM.
Did manage this slug that weighed 69.1 pounds at the Redondo Bait receiver.
I enjoyed both videos, thank you.
Nice job guys!
Make any Calico tacos last night?
Nice job guys, way to maximize the output w/a 2-dayer.
1) You can call me John; 2) there's a fine line between brave and stupid; and 3) You're right Halibut suck. I've had the...
Normally I'd not even entertain the thought of responding Steve, but you own the same model Parker that I do, one of the Parker Boats benefits.
Not as big as my partner originally though, turned out to be 7.4 pounds.
FN sweet, congratulations Joe!
Well it was easy Jason.
I knew there was a small window due to the moon coming up early.
It was overhead before it was dark.
I knew I had fresh...
Headed off with my partner Bryan, hadn't hooped since 2nd week last November.
Went to the recommended spot, which was conveyed on opening night...
The following morning they seemed to be somewhat lethargic, just told'em to stay put and they stayed put.
Quality fishing and catching man.
That's a lot of great information you shared, good on'ya.
Great pictures, thank you for sharing. John.
Nice pics, nice vids, nice Bonito, nice job!
Heard the story many times about measuring practices, and seen it a few years ago. It's just not worth the headache IMO, no matter how much the...
MY fishing partner and I had dropped the Lobster for month while we enjoyed our chasing Halibut and Bonito, both trips very productive. I'm...
There's absolutely nothing when it comes to the FOG that is fun, nothing!
If you enjoyed your trip that's all that matters, congrats on the 2!...
Thank You for the feedback Ryan, it's appreciated!
Great job Cory and Lal!
How does it work when 20 people on the boat, you can have only 10 nets per boat, and let's say the boat catches 70 legal Lobster in one night, 10...
How many people on the boat split the 24 legal Lobsters?
Nice job BTW!
With a camera we have seen Lobsters scurry from the net as seals come in to check bait cages and/or tubes for food, easy meal. The Seal is after...
Personally, I have no knowledge of the bigger Yellowtail and where they're hiding on which paddies, but I can tell you . . . Skipjack blood along...
If I'd been waiting 6-1/2 months for a dedicated cafeteria each night I'd be full speed in the beginning also (at dark) . . . then slower after I...
Absolutely . . positively . . loved every second of it!
Great video! Great sounds! Great words!
AND the gaff around the drink in the front of the...
Very nice job, congratulations!
Good stuff, quality fish, doesn't get any better than this, memories!
Stick to your guns, for the most part, refine as you go, good luck, discretion.
Yep, great hooping' all week Brad.
Even on the opener all 15 boats played nice together, worked with each other.
There was this one diver who was...
Hopefully many are paying attention. Until the first wicked storm comes thru with waves big enough to pry'em Lobster loose they'll remain shallow...
Great job Billy, especially ice on'em fish, quality fish and fishing, congratulations on your new ride! My Saturday is up in the air also due to...
Got to the spot mid-PM, dropped the nets, yep 31 feet, sardines for bait.
Then Mother Nature said FU John!
We dropped the hook, and then became...
Nice job, you gott'em Shad!
Sitting on the hook this PM absolutely sucked!
Took us an hour for double limits tonite. John.
Absolutely SICK fishing tonight, SICK quality, you know the routine by now, sardines for bait, 31 feet, started at 710 tonight done by 815, SICK...
Took 1 hour 25 minutes tonight, 720~845, 14 legals and 37 shorts, lots of clickers, 80% sardines and 20% Mackerel for bait, amazing quality out of...
Just leave me a message on the cell Glendon, and I call you with some info, phone is turned off for the day, too many gimme gimme calls, headed...
I believe it's true Mike, but there's a line of DFG code somewhere that has to do with spoilage, and I think this could come in to play in a court...
Limits, nice job Shad, whackin' and stackin'!
Looks like a healthy celebration feast too.
Can't read the girls!
Great job adding those 12 legal Lobster to the nice Halibut!
2 of us managed 12 nice legals.
Saturday night we (2 of us) fished an area with 14 other boaters, managed 12 legals and 27 shorts, shut it down at 9PM, sardines for bait, 31 feet...
I'd rather have sea punks versus being greeted by a few tweekers. Just bring a few traps and place them in the sand, that shit will cease real...
Even if you don't get to fish, you still might catch something.
I leave fish to find fish periodically myself, do not beat yourself up over it!
The only way I go where the fish are is by finding them myself,...
Don't get mad, get even, nice job on the Bones and Yellows!
Exceptional trip for the kids and others, very nice job, and nice PICs also, thank you.
You worked so hard for that Yellowtail your pants fell down, nice job!
Nice job on the quality Yellowtail!
The only seafood I buy regularly is high-end Bluefin Tuna, yep, love gorging on it until I get to THAT SPOT. Not a Sun spot, not your dog Spot,...
The purpose of tagging Halibut is to follow their movement and establish growth metrics, and I've been tagging under the guidance of John Bourget...
Managed to get out again with my fishing partner Bryan.
FN fog was fairly thick, so we took it easy heading to Redondo for bait.
Met Mike just...
Nice report and pictures, and I agree on the Bonito Sashimi, good stuff if you take care of it properly. Congrats to you and your Dad!
Weatherman suck! Hell I can predict the weather like these schmucks on TV, even if they're certified. As it relates to Mother Nature I try to...
Sorry Glendon, being I can/could never gamble I always have to keep the Ace of Spades in my pocket, I hope you and your family are doing well. John.
Flyline baits mostly? Nope.
Anything on the troll? Nope.
I could see fish pushing the bait on the meter, no idea what kind of fish was chasing it....
You sure pushed 2 of my buttons, fucking tweekers, and thank you for noticing/acting-on-it/calling-it-out with the hope the owner might see this....
Sizzler waiting list. LOL!
Drain plug in ice-chest. LOL!
People Suck. You just figured that out!? LOL!
After all, GOD helps those who help...
If I fished every single day, and could pick only one time each day to have the best chance finding someone at the Redondo bait barge, I'd pick...
I call it speed bait, little anchovies, could be little sardines, 2-3 inchers, and red crabs, always carry a handful of LIVE Squid.
I'll guess you're stoked to still be able to fish with your Dad, and that he can still get around to fish with you. Lost my Dad in January @ 90,...
Cory, over time you've done just fine, take a deep breath, things will fall into place for you, you just can't have carnage every single trip. John.
Some are built for comfort and some are built for speed, applicable to both boats and chicks, I suggest you get a moustache ride from the same girl.
A free floating paddy with a Mackerel and 7 to 8 inch Sardine mix as far as you could see around it and under it halfway to the bottom, I guess...
Fished from 6-11 for a Sand Bass and a few rake marks.
At 11AM found this Paddy, and from 11 until 1225 we put the screws to'em, and left'em...
Great persistence, very nice Dorado indeed, nice report too!!!
Great job, and ice on the fish, bravo!
As other have stated, great job Dad, nice report.
I never snag bait in MOST harbors, always outside the harbor. The only exception is inside LA Harbor as it's pretty beeeeeg. You can only snag...
Great job Glendon! John.
Nice ride and accommodations, nice load of fish too, almost a buzzkill to get limits that quick, but nevertheless great job guys!!!
Tight little boat!
As for 35 dollars a scoop, F that! It's truly Principle!
Become self-sufficient and make your own bait, it's absolutely a...
Appreciate your report, nice Yellowtail.
Nice job, nice fish!!
Are you taking that nice Yellowtail for a walk?
I ask because I made the mistake one time hanging a fish over a boat only...

The other day the city I live in put up a sign in a...
First off, take a deep breath, . . . .
When I had a few trips earlier this year, was not happy with the catching, I did what I always do.
Don't stop now Jim, those fuckers!!
All those fish need is some ice, very nice haul indeed, eat hearty!!!
I'd hate to be the guy with a badge making the call, but I'm sure they'd error on the side of "generated revenue" = big or small ticket them all....
Hey tiny, what's up?! Keep on RANTing! John.
With all the talk of "fuckery" and "fucked" and "I can't get it up" where's the T&A!?
Frustration gets us all, with whatever, at some point! Keep...
Those 2 fish look like a couple missiles!
Absolutely SICK report, great job guys, does not get any better than this!!!
Absolute good stuff, me too would snag some big MACs (suggestion), would not be bouncing fish on deck with trebles of any kind in mush...
You owe me nuthin' Glendon, but I'll take what ever you're handing out.
You've been nuthin' but a class-act since I met you!
I was glad to do it...
Your meal looks delicious! This also means great PICS!
Whenever I see you next I'll tell you why I've been away so long.
Was that you trolling the bottom lets say 7-8 AM same area I was drifting, and...
Nice job Glendon, just awesome! John.
Looks like a whole lot of fun!
It's always nice to get on the water, everything runs great, and you caught fish, nuthin' better IMO.
Thank you for posting your report!
You just made my day Jack, thank you!
Never lost the touch, just out of touch with SMB, that's as much as you get Asher.
I worked my ASS off over the last 3 trips to find these fish!...
It's been awhile Joe, hope you are doing well these days.
Told my partner after catching' a few legals early AM last week that we'd be lucky to get any outside of noon to 3 PM today.
Partner nails 15...
Congratulations on your personal best, nice Halibut indeed!
Love the picture of the Calico in the kill bag! :appl:
Also surprised the Bass fisherman didn't get their drawers bunched up over that. LOL...
I'm guessing that Sheephead you're holding is 30+ plus pounds, mind if I ask how big it was?
Is there a law against cooking Cowcod, or BSB for that matter?
I think it's a possession factor, 99%, and I get that.
I guess the real question...
LMFACO! Although, as stated, Bonito is awesome sashimi, no two ways about that, and spear fisherman that have their technique filed-down and sharp...
Beer battered and deep fried . . . Cowcod makes an excellent Taco base, home made Pico, some slaw/cabbage, a lime, and your drink of choice, times...
Well good luck this weekend Glendon, and good luck to your Son also. John.
I didn't find many Asher, but when I did they were all hooked, netted, and tagged, well except for these 2 little ladies that were kept, and sure...
The BSB you're holding is the perfect size for the BBQ! MMMMMMMMM tasty!
Generally, I use garlic cloves strategically placed in a BSB steak,...
That's exactly how I hook all my fish. LOL!
Had a few days and went Halibut fishing.
Absolutely great bait (sardines) from Marina Del Rey...
What kind of hook(s).
At 120 feet that 4 ounce EGG is going to create some issues, how did you keep it down?
Stellar, just plain Stellar! Great write-up too Yutaka!
FN sweet, a Halibut got in your way of Bass fishin', :appl:nice job Lal!
Always nice to read your write-ups Cory. :)
Not stepping in the middle of this, although I just did chat with you, good to hear your voice, you sounded clear to me, for what that's worth,...
Left U a phone message, what the F R U doing in Kansas?!
Great short read and report Mike!
Anyone catching 5+ legal Halibut in a weekend is no rookie.
I'd shed that tag and give yourself credit.
Such a simple concept, and yet some struggle to attain this level of humanity.
I hear you Johnson!
Pictures look just fine, welcome back Glendon!
Where's my hat!?:)
Let me know if you'd like to potentially pre-schedule for next season Lobster...
Damn Yutaka, you're a fish catching maniac!
I'd better never take you Halibut fishing with me again, can't have that happen.
Nice job on the MAMA...
For those who do not like Sand Dabs and Sand Dab fishing . . .
Catch 10 or so, keep them alive in the bait tank, and let them get their whatever...
Can't argue that, well stated.
Absolutely SWEET, thank you for the come back, another great job!
What's the biggest Pacific Halibut you've nailed with that there Copper pipe thang?
Congratulations to the both of you, as it's your job to find the fish and put everyone on the boat on'em, and everyone on the boats job to put...
Beautiful fish, and a PIG at that, great job on the picture while she still had her colors.
Hold that fish up would'ya. SWEET!
DO NOT forget the...
Nice SLUG Yellowtail, great job!!
Nice job, congratulations, don't you just love it when your plan comes together!!!
Good $#!+ Nate, just got a chance to view it . . .
Laughed pretty FN hard, at least Pink Gummy had the solution.
Needed that at the end of the...
Pretty funny coming from one GRUMP to another.
Last night you could have called me, and damned if I didn't leave my cell phone at home today. GRRRRR! Never call between midnight and 5AM, as...
Nothing wrong with 3 legals Chris, nothing, do not be so hard on yourself.
Have an idea where you were, will call you after work today. Great job!
Only place I can think of would be the main channel where BEEEEEG BOATS come and go, aware of a few spots that hold Halibut inside the Bay, PM me...
Welllllllllllllllllllllllll, it's January, I have a memory like a bear trap Mike, when are we leaving?! Happy New Year!
Here's some more Nate. Those zip-ties you see are holding wire mesh on the inside of the open-door end. The other end has the same except on the...
That Halibut looks like it died from a headache. LOL! Nice job!
As someone mentioned Chris the Triggerfish is great table fare, might want to put a governor on it ~suggestion~.
My guess would be Angel Shark,...
For those that swear tubes are the way to go I say . . .
The bait in these cages has been used the last 2 nights.
I never had to refill...
Last night we started in 23 feet.
I hope you're doing' well Brian.
Been working some areas that have a lot of Eel grass.
Note sure why 2 weeks late, but if I knew the fish were there and it was bird chasing then I'd have waited 3 weeks. LOL! We all know what happens...
Seeing that piece of iron hang from that Chucklehead tells me everything, absolutely awesome quality fishing.
That one Whitefish look like a small Yellowtail, never can find enough Reds there (SBI) seems they're always moving from pinnacle to pinnacle, and...
Love eating those Chuckleheads Cory.
Usually find WHITEFISH shallower also, where I fish'em at SBI.
Nice job all the way around guys.
Had a small window to take my Son Lobster fishing for the first time.
He and his wife are here from Texas.
My hooping partner and I set a goal to...
XXX indeed, absolutely SWEET!
Great pictures and report Chris, quality Sheepshead.
Keeping GF happy is half the battle, and looks like you succeeded there.
Looks to be great weather at sunset also, damn wind.
Nice job, nice report, congrats!
Very nice information Gabe, very nice indeed.
I sure hope you had rubber gloves on.
Some smells you just do not get off of you quickly depending on the oils in them.
Lots of fish oils out...
I was just discussing with my partner what it takes me, or him, or both of us, to be motivated to go.
It's not like you put 75 cents in a vending...
The boys smile says it all, nice job all the way around!
Nice job and write-up, congratulations!
The 'Ol 90/10 rule at work again, what a clue Mike.
Most don't believe you/me until they see it, and we know you can't save the world one...

I'd be protective also, no two ways about that.

Better than TV, great job, an absolute enlightening perspective!!!

It does not get any better than that, with your bother and Dad, quality fishing indeed. Nice job!
Very few things stop me from talking, you should know that by now Randy.
Was talking with Jason the other day and apparently neither of us know...
Sashimi Yellowtail sounds really good about now.
Man the belly meat on a fish with <5% body fat is amazing.
Nice report, nothing like eating from your own garden, you got some, nice job.
It's happened to me also at Arrow Point and the 2 hoopnets were found floating in 60 feet just before Stoney Point. If you spend/spent the night...
Remember discussing this the other day?
I think the line for the commercial guys is the tip of Point Loma to the tip of Zuniga Jetty.
On the right...
I sure hope the new spot you tried is not on the right as you exit the harbor, please do not be there.:imdumb:
The only thing I'd have done...
When I have newbies on I always go over the fishfinder, gps, vhf, radar, compass, turning on and off motor, protocol for every possible scenario....
Yes for all . . . . for Halibut for boats and for fisherman.
I completely agree with you.
Regulations state any net left for more than 2 hours is considered abandoned.
And I believe it also uses the term "unlawful".
Great of you to do this.
What blows my mind is how many guys have lost'em hoop nets.
My Danielsons are the originals, look like crap, but still...
Nice job Shad!
As long as the Captain and crew give 100% that's all you can do.
People will be people, it's their nature.
Nice job Cory/Lal.
First off congratulations on the 3 legal lobsters Matt!
I thought for sure when I saw this post/semi~offer you'd have the keys to Neptunes city....
Now I know where I got my White Knuckles, attaboy Mike.
. . . think that calls for a fourth dart on the board! Nice checkmate!
I could not agree more Jim!

I LOVE IT!
These are my opinions.
There's plenty of Lobsters, all I'm going to say.
What the coast needs is that first wicked/SNOTTY storm for a few days....
If your timing is good you can get'em down at the fish distributors in San Pedro.
I walk up with an ice-chest and get what I need for nuthin' out...
Nice to have been on the water versus working. Nice job indeed!
Nothing like an overnighter to the little island!
A reality check indeed, what a shame, always hate to see one of your own go down.
You better be nice to Mother Nature. :imdumb: LMACO! :rofl:
Your options are:
Take your boat to your local Church and have it blessed by a Priest with Holy Water.
Go fish for something simple that's...
The only thing better than 3 Yellowfin is 3 Bluefin, my opinion of course.
How can you beat good weather and catching, you can't! Congrats!
Breathe deep Chris . . . sometimes this stuff happens.
More then happy to help you and your son get some lobsters, lemme know.
Something to think about . . .
Save all your Mackerel.
When you get back to the ramp give them to someone hoop netting for their fresh bait....
Big waves, no problem, know the limitations for yourself and your boat.
Wind, unless it's down right SNOTTY, know the limitations for yourself...
Glad you and your son made it in safely!
Must have been a painful, anxiety-filled, stressful, draining 3 hour tour.
Most any report is better than none, nice job, good info!!!
It's not always the current, and yes it depends on the location.
Nice job on the 8 legals, and the brown/red rock crabs.
Years back I was...
Nothing like being amped-up to fish, and then the unexpected detours kick-in. :2gunsfiring_v1:
Sounds like you made the most of it!
Nice job, and it's always great when your plan comes together!!
Keep at it and it will happen.
Ever head out from Mission Bay and turn right?
Rocks are everywhere, you just have to locate them.
Very good read indeed!
When you're on top of the mountain there's only one way to go.
You're only as good as your last trip.
He's living rent-free in your head!
Congratulations, beautiful Halibut!
Let me know if I can be of some help Matt.
Nice of you to post that 1st PIC with the drop off,
just glad it wasn't in tighter as that's the best Whitefish spot on the island IMO.
That's the idea of the forum for people to read what others feedback is.
Remains to be seen.
Like the optimism, but that remains to be seen....
Look for Rock Crabs from end of December thru February, they're around.
IMO, for what that's worth, women that enjoy fishing are a dime a dozen.
Buuuuut, women that can catch'em and put'em on the deck when the captain...
Stellar report and pictures, congratulations on a great trip!
Pictures are great, I'm hungry now, great report!!!
I too lacked a desire to fish for a number of years, for a number of reasons, man your candor is A+.
I LOVE IT when people call a spade a spade!
2 other boats next to me were complaining their cages had been emptied out and physically thrashed and trashed by the Seals, while I...
An absolutely sweet looking ride!
Is there a slammer (fish hold) on the boat?
Thank You mullet, Reel hip, 909MARIO, & Phat Boat for the feedback.
I think I can easily modify my routine and dump the bait elsewhere.
You have the right outlook IMO.
I just noticed your avatar Tim, love to hear THAT story sometime, just sick! :lux::appl::lux::appl:
Why am I posting this report?
Because I have to take the bad with good IMO, and vice versa.
Headed to the Freeway at 6PM, and arrived at our...
Your daughter is looking at the Lobster saying WT? is this, nice job Shad.
Nice report, and even nicer fish, appreciate the PICS closing the loop.
Great report, and great lookin' kids and food!

Very nice indeed, sweet mess O-Bugs!
Nice job, if you didn't get wet it just wouldn't be fishing IMO.

All I can say is I'm glad everyone is okay, a boat can be replaced, not a life.

Sunset, success, family, kids, ahhha bugs too, absolutely awesome!
I hope you saved the gills from that yellow for your cages, nothing better, and the belly meat for me. :cheers: That's a pig! pig:

I would hope they're part of the fishing industry.
We saw what millions of dollars just bought us, the FN MLPA rammed up our butts.

It appears the fishing is booming for you down south.
For me and mine, those are Christmas colors.
If that's what they mean to you, that's fine, no worries here.
Have a great Holiday!
Who are THE PEOPLE?!
Nobody has my interest at heart like me!
Must be you and the mouse in your pocket.
If it comes easy then your not trying.

I certainly can vouch for your diving ability as it relates to finding stuff on the ocean floor.
Still have the SD8 Roger?
Beautiful dog indeed, and a fine mess of Lobster in that there milk crate. Nice job!
Okay, I'm sure my radar will pick you up Danny.
I'd just hate to run into you out there.
Probably be like the old station wagon hitting an Elk....
Do you have radar on your boat?
Seen way too many of these canisters over the years.
Went to pick one up years back, and out of the blue some BEEEEG rubber boats full of NAVY...
No limit to how many on the BBQ at any given time either. :rofl:
Looks like cookie cutter 2 pound tails too me, stellar job Shad!
I love eatin' those Chuckleheads, good stuff!

Agreed, and all I'm saying is you do 3 trips at Catalina in that ripping uphill current at 75 - 90 feet and after that it will come naturally for...
Pulling at 80-90 feet is not big deal for 10 nets.
The minute you have to pull multiple sets at that depth, BY HAND, I agree completely.
Different boat, have to keep everyone guessing.
Think I saw you out there, nice job!
In picture 19, HEY! That's my shirt!
Hope next year and the remainder of this year have your deck littered with fish, go get'em!
What a shame bro.
If my Son was not arriving from Texas that night I might hijack your boat, I mean volunteer my services for the night.
Cory, W-in-TF were you doin' on top of the cabin?
It's the the wind blown look you're sportin'. :rofl:
Nice job on the fish, wouldn't expect...
What else was served with dinner . . . sashimi, etc. and?
Check the 20 and 40 fathom curves.
Nice eyes too Kelly.
Been awhile for a Lobster recap like this from Dana Point.
It's always nice when someone steps out of the dark with a report like this....
Great report IMO, and the extra pictures are really nice also!!
I'd say you've been paying attention to the subtle changes = details, you deserve it, more good quality.
Sure hope you ate those legs and antenna knuckles at the base of the head?
That there's some good eatin' meat, and off that slug even better!

Let's take this offline.
I'd heard you were kinda slow when it comes to figurin' this stuff out. :nopity:
Timing is everything, man I love it when a plan comes together...
I think you have Sand Bass stains on the deck of that boat.
Nice job guys!
And just the right amount of information.
If people can't figure it out with that then no need goin' out IMO.
Found as many as 5 nets before at night, plus my own 10 (2 or more people onboard).
Everything found goes on top of the cabin strapped down.
I raise you, how'bout 50%?
OUTFREEKINSTANDING Greg, on all levels!
Very nice Halibut guys, congratulations! :appl:
As others stated, learn from your mistake(s) and don't let it happen again.
I can think of 3 ways to get in without paying.
To me it's...
Nice job once again!
The water actually looks pretty fishy to me, for what I like to fish for.
At least you got out Mike.
Sweet trip guys.
I expressed my opinion, plain and simple, and you can believe what you want to believe as shall I.
Time for me to move on, take care Dave Ploessel.
I never called you stupid.
I never said it was illegal to have a speargun while diving for Lobster.
I never called you a name.
You really need...
Why is your boat for sale, and how's it running at the moment?
All you need in the one squid picture is Yellowtail crashing threw it!
Very very nice Cory!
Would you consider a 22" California Halibut fillet?
Showing a picture of Lobster with a speargun next to it is pretty FN stupid!
Strive to be a leader, not a follower!
Completely agree, but not so fast Mike.
The next level is being able to pick the fish no matter where you land from the sky.

You actually eat that crap fish?
Nice trip BTW also.
First off Jesse thanks for the come back and feedback.
Glad you enjoyed your trip with Dan!
Secondarily, I didn't know I'd struck such a nerve...
That's a whole lotta shorts . . . I stop at 50 myself.
. . . smaller ones taste the best anyways, legals, nice job!
That IS a whole lot of Krill, and one helluva flat ocean!!
Did not expect to see that KILLER in it either, more like this....
I'm curious Dan, how many sets times x-nets defines your night for a charter, or is it x-hours period?
Suggestion: Take a couple kinds of baits...
Often imitated, never duplicated!
22 hours on a floating platform for $250-, are you FN kidding me.
I'll use my own boat, thanks, and get a helluva a lot more water time for...
Congratulations on your retirement, we all want to get there!
Nothing better to do?
Why don't you get some more models? New Ones!
Done with the appetizer, bring on the details and pictures!
Sand Dabs are PRIME bait for Lingcod, especially alive!
Vast amounts of fish are a school of'em, not a flock.
Here you go . . .
Sounds like a good fishing and catching day with your Son, nice Job!
Congratulations, nice Halibut!
Big bait, big fish, now where'd you get that big bait Robert.
Nice job, congratulations!
I was told recently by a DFG warden 1 limit per licensed fisherman that actively resides in the household,
and they can prove they live in the...
Already have Lobsters, so I'd rather get HEAD [IMG]and get no more Lobsters.
Nice job with the boy!
Good stuff for those that pay attention, THANK YOU!
This happened on the opener 2 or 3 years ago in MDR.
I believe they took him away, federal offense I'm told.
While I like the solution in text,...
Very cool indeed!
Might you post a picture of your boat?
Can you elaborate on this?
Hooped 3 nights opening week, maxed out all 3 trips, 3 guys, 3 guys, 2 guys.
Bait was 75% Sardines and 20%...
Damn Matt, what a great trip!
Is there anything you didn't catch?
I saw no less than 30 boats x 10 nets in the area I hooped on OPENING NIGHT, not 1 single issue.
Yes a lot of jockying for position and...
Thought I was up in Monterrey for a moment there, deck full with Lings like that.
Nice when you get to the SPECIAL SPOTS, although I...
Never heard that crew called queers before, hmmmmm, . . . .
I'm guessing they're having a real good time no matter what they're doing on the water.
A safety issue as far as I'm concerned.
6 boats, 1 diver, what a quick way to make a chum bucket.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you, it's sounds soft.
Wishing I'd never chimed in, certainly will refrain moving forward.
Why do you call'em report(s) moo-moo?
It sounds so . . .
No need to be out in a storm! JMHLHO.
A boat owner should be thinking safety first at all times, even more if others are onboard for the trip....
I remember when I was working with Michael Fowlkes, you walked up to him at the Fred Hall Show at the ISF booth, and you were turned away....
Nice job guys, and some toothpick sized spines on those rockfish!
If I didn't know better the 2nd PIC looks like a 25 foot wave building west of the Cortez Bank,
but Ts there . . . uhhhhh . . . unlikely . . ....
Sounds like fun, although you might want to take a paintbrush to the PICS. *suggestion*
Someone else might not be as kind as you were this day.
Man did you bring back some memories, great report! :appl:
Here's one for you to try, this is a suggestion.
Carolina rig with a 3-4 foot...
A friend of mine caught a 46# Halibut Saturday and is in the process of submitting it...
If you wrote a check, you can get the bank statement, check, and the signatures front and back, guessing not though based on the tone.
Sure hope 1 of those is a female. Congrats!
Let me know when you be up in my neck of the woods, again.
Did you get out this past weekend Bill?
Using that Lysol on-em sure shined-em up, and made them behave like that! :rofl:
SWEET, very nice Halibut, congratulations!
I was expecting a limit of MUFF, great job on the Halibut!
Not sure which was better the read or the visuals, both were great!
Call me Bill. John.
If I were you I'd set-up up the pathetic pieces of crap. How?
Go get some more equipment/stuff, park the boat back out there again.
This time be...
If you mean SMB . . .
Some people are selective where they hoop = they only want to eat Lobster from specific areas they hoop in SMB.
Keep the net hoops only, JMHLFO.
Glad to hear it sucks, tell everyone please!
I completely agree!
Need I say more?!:food-smil
Ya might want to read this.
Wondering why someone would only take 3 of the 4? 6?
About 13 years ago I had similar experience coming back from SBI with a full moon.
I could see the coast from the island, all down hill into MDR...
What's YOUR definition of "Professional"?
AGREED, Nice Halibut, I hate the fog!!!
Damn, I know it hurts and it will for awhile!
I love my dog Jimmy, and you'll love the next one!
Yeah there'll be a next one, I can tell.
Should be $1,000.00 for the first offense and $100.00 for each extra offense times 132 is over $13,000.00.
If the cost of an offense went up they...
When I read the subject line I was thinking a BOOB JOB gone bad,
a little rework, and you pushed your girl back out into the public eye.
Nice job on the Lobsters.
How many legals were caught on your charter trip?
I sure hope more than 2 . .
Your nets have been sold!
Well except for the 1 that has good JuJu on it.
Did you fall and not get up?!
INDEED EPIC Halibut fishing, very very nice! :appl:
With fish like that you don't need any Lobsters.
9 pounds is what I was just told.
Just glad it was a Male as I'd likely have released a Female that size.
Early on the weather sucked, and you can only listen to so much music while on the anchor for 4 hours.
So we we're literally rockin' with the...
He launched at Huntington . . . :rofl:
YEAH! Let me run down to OSide real quick for bait ~ ~ ~ :rofl::rofl:
Downhill would be a sweet ride,...
Very nice job with the kids, smiles, and the Trout!
Congratulations on the Lobster!
Nets can be replaced, you can not be replaced!
What were you doing out in that crap?!
Very nice indeed!
When will your girls be performing in a town near me?
Can you sell ice to an eskimo though?
I think I heard that night from my crew "why's he got them stacked in a box like that?"
I said because that's one of the 2 walkways on that...
I'd say 90% of the people were right on with all their comments. :rodent:
Angry seas you say, flat out sloppy IMO, not snotty but very close.
A trooper indeed!
Now if I'd seen this post before I saw the Sushi Grade this morning I wouldn't have freaked out.
Truly a shame Brad.
My heart goes out to Lisa...
Elequently put indeed!
I hope to be crabbing just south of you, save my seats please.
That's really rubbing it in . . so you hand-lined a 540 pound Halibut you say.
Shame the stick broke!
I never gave that any consideration Mike, coming out of the cabin that is.
The bad news is you better enjoy the dog barking. :rofl:
I better not drop any Mackerel or Sardines tomorrow night . .
You have respect for guys that GO DOWN there. WTF Mike!?
And you're riding with me tomorrow night, sheeesh, remind me to stay in the cabin okay.
Hey Joey, what's up!?
Hope you're doing well UP THERE!
This is usually what happens shortly after attempting to launch like this.
It took a simple logical short precise response for me to digress into this CF thread.
Remember the Pier 400 project?
I'll guess that wiped-out 10 times the amount of Halibut, juveniles, and key spawning habitat. MOOC
The assessment of the Southern California population showed that the stock in those waters has been depressed over the last 40 years.
F-that 2 hour documentary we need to get you a TV show.
Of course we'll have to start locally, then regionally, then nationally, and hopefully...
Hi Robert, the fact you took the time to put that together and then share it speaks volumes. :appl: :appl: :appl:
Amazing isn't it, just amazing!...
If I might ask, how many different colors do you use on the flasher(s)?
Which color works best FOR YOU?
Very nice Halibut, great job! :appl:
Did you notice those fish do not have any eyes on the white-side?
Very nice set of book-ends you have there! :appl:
That meter takes me back to the 70s, groovy man.
Nice Yellows, congratulations!
SWEET! Please send the fish north, thank you.
Maybe he's keeping them for his Lobster cages?
If I remember doesn't Corral Cyn Beach have pebbles and rocks?
They want sand!
Had luck snagging them.
Beaches I've caught them at are Torrance...
Maybe target Halibut and you'll find the yellows?
Thanks for the ask Matt!
Up until this year doing okay, couple medical surgeries later and a couple
months off I feel pretty darn good, and...
Thanks for the feedback Matt, it's appreciated!
Had a 1/2-day to burn so I went fishin' 6:30-10:30.
Fished 3 miles north for one 20-25 pound BSB, released unharmed and she swam back down.
Nice job Matt.
Very nice Halibut, very nice.
How long is your leader between the flasher and the hook?
Great getting the kids out there.
Now that fish is lit-up, unbelievable coloring and circular marks on her!
Isn't it always nice when your plan comes together. :appl:
Boy did I like that report, so much I posted twice.
My my my my my, if I was a Bass I know I'd be . . .
Checker board hat, checkerboard fish, congratulations!
Grade-A report, quality fish, nice touch with the videos. :appl:
One of the reasons I always go to the little island is the quality Whitefiish.
See any sharks?
Freakin' amazing you are!
Definitely find your own spot.
I wonder though, how many of those who voted the same wouldn't throttle down as they went by a boat or 2 that...
Like the boats sat on the border for the Bluefin they will not hesitate to
take the Bonito either if the volume of fish is there and the money is...
All muscle that one in right hand, mmmmm good sashimi.
Quality fish indeed!
You might want to anchor-up more often, and make sure
plenty of boats around and tell everyone to flyline their baits.
Very nice catch!
I have one of these on the front porch, and it has eggs in it at the moment.
Nice load of rattleshnakes!
CPR is not just lip 2 lip, excellent job guys!
Great videos, really enjoyed it.
Damn dude, NM forget that!
You continue to amaze me, for what that's worth.
And folks, I'm not affiliated with anyone . . . period!
What do you...
You Say, Dominique = Dude?
I guess I need to get out even more, and been out all day.
Thanks for the report.
Nice jobs guys.
How many legals today, 1 or 4?
When I saw the first PIC John, I thought now how'd he get that Grey 1000 foot Parker?
Would be a nice upgrade indeed.
SO you want to fish in my...
Ahhhh that's why she's so light brown, yet has a few circular marks left.
Usually when they come up this light in color I find mud on their...
Go further north, there's some larger models the last 2 weeks.
Smiles around, great weather, and the Halibut to close the deal, nice job.
Tell me, how much dirt on the bottomm of this one?
Once again, very nice job guys!:appl:
You must have gotten a bad batch?
What ever works for you brother.
I still have one, and it's retired, and no paint just like my former pals...
That is so cool, what a rush for both of you, I can only imagine. :appl::appl::appl:
Candy Bar, Candy Bar, Candy Bar.
For 5-6 years I watched an old friend throw this old old jig with not a speck of paint left on it.
He could catch...
Very cool indeed, man those kids are havin a blast!
Nothing ventured nothing gained, excellent job on the quality fish!
Loved to have been a kelp fly on the wall for that perspective on life.
Probably the same perspective I'd have given him, give or take a few...
Think I'd have had one of the 2 yellows for lunch, after icing it down of course.
Why leave the skin on that piece I'm eatin' it right now....
Congratulations to the both of you, great job Dad!
Very nice indeed!
Keep the Halibut warm others are coming.
I confessed my sins above, did you read that before dogpiling?
Have a great day!
Either I shrunk a wee bit or that would be your son Mike, and I'll guess your son.
Yeah that was one memorable trip for me, just glad it all came...
This is a great reminder to me to move a few words around next time, would take on a whole new meaning.
I'm just glad you...
The swimability of iron (not everything is iron) is paramount IMO.
Like a woman moves her body, the right action, makes you want to snap.
Seen it in SCal before Jeff.
What kills me is nothing is on ice.
Had BFT and Halibut sashimi for lunch.
Those YT bellies look awful appealing at the moment.

Exactly what OUTLAND stated!
They are cordial with me, guess they've learned. LMAO!
I always have them meet me at the wash down.
YOU REALLY GET IT!
Thank You for round-3 also.
You clobber just about everything, that's a compliment BTW.
How'ya doin Vince.
You guys are pretty darn good and consistently finding quality Halibut,
and I've only read your reports for a 3 months or so.
Must be something...
You guys are related by HAT!
Some things never change Cory, great report!
Excellent job with your 2 young girls!

Reason I ask this is because 4-5 years ago I weighed a fish (someone elses) at

No small feat convincing that fish to get in the boat.

Went to HB and tried it today for lunch with the Mrs.
Not nearly as busy as Anaheim Hills, scenery not the same either.
Food still very good...
Those teasers would work on the surface also, IMO.
Nice day, congratulations.
4 nice fish today, 8:30AM to 11:20AM. SMB.
Good fishing to everyone!
I suggest you snag your own bait, save the money and allocate another hour to do so pre-dawn. There's not a trip that goes by where I don't have...
I believe the Halibut fishing in Sandy Eggo County has been getting better each year over the last 5 years. I also believe most Halibut fishing...
Great job being Dad, very nice Halibut!
Pretty soon you won't be able to go to the movies w/o
someone calling you to tell you he just saw you walk by.
Keep riding the wave of success.
I wonder where they were fishing. [IMG]
Nice job again guys!
The colors on that fish are phenominal, along with her size!!

Just above the top lip are 3 to 5 of the smallest spines on the fish.
They can create plain nasty pain....

You'd better pray the wind isn't a factor because the next 2 days it will be.

That is an accident waiting to happen!
Good Luck with the resolution.
