Fido is going to eat well!
Nice report, and at least you got a good teaser boil rather than empty dreams.
Our own local tuna. I love the way that sounds.
Congrats on a beauty BFT! :appl:
I've been stiffed by shady companies, and I've been serviced beyond belief by others. What comes around, will go around....
In case anyone missed this, these surfers sure didn't.
Sounds like you made a good call, Mr Visser! I never made it out of my office. :mad:
Haven't seen a little fire out of you in a while. That...
Unfrickingbelievable. Catch of a lifetime right there.
Now go get yourself an opah just for shits and giggles!
Nice day, nice ling!
Considering this was a full day trip in November, I would settle for a single 20# YFT. Looks like it was a one-fish-per-rod kind of day after...
Great day catching kelp paddy yellows!
5 fish can be under 24”, the rest must be over.
Barefoot tuna fishing in November next to Catalina. You're a lucky man, Erik!
Dude :smoking33: :eyepoppin
Not a bad day for mid November for goodness sakes.
Wow you guys covered some territory! Nice day on awesome seas.
These are newly resident fish. They are here to stay permanently.
(time for a bigger filet table)
I like to use strong invisible line with sharp hooks and cold IPA’s.
I call BS without pics :smoking33:
Well done, Nick!
I'm hoping for a miracle (getting out to fish for tuna) in the next weekish. Lately, I swear I can hear that fat lady warming up...
Ling, lobster and salmon. Can't beat that.
(Some dude was trying to take your wallet)
Very nice! All off the east end?
Same for me Rick, although I never used it, it was basically a blank page. Deleting my old email solved the notification problem a few months ago....
Sorry to hear about your pup. Not easy at all, but the ocean is incredible therapy, fish or no fish.
Nice seeing something biting hooks in Dana...
Nice going, Doug!
Nice BFT and seas to boot!
Nice going, Nick! Kind of hard to get all those tuna in one of your priceless, gunny-sack sandal photos, though! LOL
Lifer trip right there! Congrats!
Someone’s got their panties in a tight wod this morning...
Is this your first visit to BD? Try some humor dude, it might help loosen those things...
Yes at least you saw fish and had an opportunity! My summer has been full of paying dues, with not one tuna after several hundred dollars, several...
Nice! Those seas make for good travel time!
Hats off, Cody. Great day, great seas, great fishing and great country that gives us the pleasure!
(Commas and periods are your friends) LOL
Well done, Cory! I'm hoping to give it one more try before the inevitable happens.
Awesome report Robert!
Sweet! "That ain't working, that's the way you do it!"
WFO yellowfin before Thanksgiving.
Go figure :smoking33:
Captain everyone is getting them close to home. Good luck!
Popper John! :appl:
That's a heck of a 3/4 day!
Nice tuna for your efforts!
Great report and write-up, Stevereno!
The captain clearly had plans to have dinner with his in-laws that night also! LOL
Nice to hear there are some blues out there. Haven't seen one for years.
It's finding that delicate balance to be able to play, and possibly get rewarded.
Very nice! Boys are stoked, and you're stoked like a boy!
Beast mode! Congrats!
Nice flatty, Walter! You got it all nice and tucked in the seat for a cozy ride home. Sweet!
Nice going, Joseph! Catalina is a gem. Take care of her when you visit.
Some people prefer to eat, some people prefer to save a lot of money.
Nick, how many times have you used that sack photo? :smoking33:
Trigger on the left. I'll take my bass cooked in beer batter and the trigger ceviche-style, please.
Beautiful boat, Don! What year?
Nice seeing tuna's still wandering around our waters. Big skippy no doubt.
Now you’re talking, Chris!
That’s just nuts!
Ralph’s has pork shoulder on sale this weekend for .25 cents a pound.
Thanks, Stu! Makes sense. I knew I was missing something (else).
I thought the 14 mile bank's highest point was just under 350 ft? There's a high spot at 120 ft out there? I must be missing something (else)....
Please post late reports in the Late Reports Forum. Thank you.
Classic write-up! Congrats to you and your son!
Simply awesome! You and pops marking up the meter and the deck. And a glassy run to make all the more enjoyable.
Nice going gents!
Looks like Catalina is providing quality YT in numbers today despite the windy forecast. That might be a good bet.
Good effort Nick! You and your dad remind me of my fishing days with my pop so much! Priceless.
Here’s my pop starting my passion on Hume Lake,...
Outstanding video! Especially the action at 2:45, 6:45 and 9:45! Action packed!
Thanks for sharing!
Very cool! Congrats to the whole family!
Some rockfish species taste better at gunny temperature.
Threshers are decent boats.
Nice report, Dan. A few chances are better than none.
Dr Lowe will know!
Historic. Thanks for sharing!
Nothing like being the captain of your own adventure! Nice work!
New motor looks like it's working like a charm! :appl:
Climate change? What climate change?
Rooster fishing should pick up soon along Morro Bay. Wahoos starting to make a showing In Santa Cruz....
Congrats on a lifer! Tackle?
Never heard of a megamouth until now. Wow!
Nice! When was this Evin?
I want some! Dang I hate work.
5lb jackpot for pops is what it’s all about! Thanks for the report!
About 15 years ago I was on my way back to Dana Pt from about 60 miles out when I spotted a very small skiff in the distance making way. I was...
Looks big enough to be holding fish.
Ganja bug? :smoking33:
Nice video Ian! Very informative. Thank you!
I’ll be darned
Nothing a few tip jars or a couple hundred filets wouldn’t take care of.
Oh how I hate those tip jars with the smiley face on them. :)
Ahi poke or cooked rock fish. You have my vote!
Go get'm Vinny!
Great report. Thanks!
Good on you and Lal, Cory! Despite the gnarly conditions, you guys had your fun! That west end of Cat is the constant recipient of Pt Conception...
Cat food? LOL Sorry, Jason. Couldn't resist.
Scott doesn’t disappoint
I can think of worse problems to have!
A lot harder :smoking33:
That’s a nice trip! Suave seas
Ferment them and they make a great IPA. :cheers:
Oh yes they can! I was fishing in sandals on the Aggressor years ago up by the platforms fishing for early morning sculpin and late morning...
Nice report LJ. Used to bring my dog (about the same size) on my boat all the time. She preferred the yellow life vest, though. Picky lady.
I’ve been trying to get in a picture like that all season! :mad: I feel more like the guys spread out on the dock! LOL
Oh but that’s gonna change...
It opens when the man gets there, some of the times.
Real flexible hours if employed there, plus benefits.
My envy spillith over, Cody! Dang!
Looks like I may be out there fishing private next Wednesday if the stars are all aligned. My season has plain...
Thanks Lal! Good effort
Lots of happy fisherman in San Diego lately...:appl:
Now work Nick! Beauty yellowtail!
Nice work Cole!
Nicely done taking care of pops!
Respect opens doors. Nice report!
Nice work, Austin!
Hat's off, Jonathan!
I could swear you post the same pictures of the same fish every year, but that's just nonsense! Outstanding popping, dude!
You, sir, are lucky to be living far, far away in your lonely little world of pathetic, brain-dead stupidity. Or several of us would have you...
Try contacting the landing unless you are going private. I always try and cover a range to be prepared.
Based on some of the irregular sentences and strange typos I've read on that common site over the years, I'd have to believe the person inputting...
Very good chance they were tuna.
That's more good news!
You're buddy should be a happy man. Does he smile?
I wouldn't be able to wipe the grin from my face with a 10 mile, 92 lb fish, thank you very much.
Cats don't like me, and I don't like cats. And who cares. :smoking33:
And a ling to boot! Glad you got to hear that sweet sound of the drag, Mike!
Nothing but brother and sisterly love on this board! :eek:
Oh how I miss my 70-80’s Lakers! Spoiled rotten we were.
Sorry Jonathan, but there’s a new sheriff in town. :2gunsfiring_v1:
What are you talking about he hit it twice? LOL
That's a sweet 6 hour stint, Cody!
Awesome report! Thanks!
Good advice, skipper!
Cole's got some guns like pappy! :beerbang:
Please post your report here when you get back. Sunscreen and Dramamine. :smoking33:
LOL Very carefully!
Outstanding memories made with your pop! Absolutely PRICELESS! :appl:
No fair hanging on the dorsal fin while it's being weighed...:D
Love the Avatar! Very creative, yet true.
Limits for 4 by 9pm is just ok? Come on man! :beerbang:
Glad to see the poachers are being kept in check, although there are still morons who...
Great video, Ronson! Those are some good times. A couple thick ones there next to the IPA!
They found this one under your bunk pillow. Is this it?
Is this for catching fish with lots of mercury? :eyepoppin
Good stuff Robert!
Nice work, George!
This product will solve that guys foot smell issue next time, hopefully. There should be some available on the deck somewhere.
So true, LJ. Wish they tasted half as good as ahi though.
Dana BFT taste better than SD BFT. Well done sir!
That’s some hot water. No wonder they were boiling around the boat.
I like what I read on the T Bird where everyone helped reel the kite fish in, and the customers split up all the meat. Recently I think they split...
Thanks, Erik! Great read and report.
About fricking time!
Don't die yet....
Fantastic read, Ali! Congrats! :appl:
Good luck, pal. Hopefully those pirates don't bring fishing poles to the party.
You need to fish outside the harbor, Tony! LOL
180 would be deep, but I've seen some easily in 100+. Not a fun place to pull a hefty yellowtail...
Great report and quality day, Ray!
You should go out there and try this, Mike. No more Pepe Le Pew for you. LOL
Green with envy, Cody! :D
You’re not alone sir
Great local trip, Dan! Those young ladies are hooked for sure. Beautiful mossback!
Nice report and great day of fishing!
That’s epic fishing right there. Congrats!
In my world that would qualify as a cow. Nice work dude!
3 years on... it doesn’t seem to be ending any time soon.
Please post your report here or the Mexico fishing report forum upon your return.
Thank you for your support.
Trippy no doubt :smoking33:
I feel your pain, Kurt + 80 more miles. At least you actually saw fish. We saw lots of water, dolphin and mylar.
Attitude - positive. I like it!
What an experience and great report!
That is nuts!
And that rain is actually kindling to the food chain in a scientific way I don't really understand. I read about it in a salmon article once....
I hope you find your BFT soon, buddy. Good thing they seem to be hanging around all year the past few.
I hate using the cliche “I’m...
Oly had cold-cuts and I had my typical PB&J, and some fantastic chili-peppered beef jerky. Paired with Kern River Outstanding IPA.
Nice report. Bacon wrapped BFT sounds awesome!
I realize this post is sort of meaningless, but my friend Oly and I have are living proof that things may have slowed just a bit. Go figure?...
The Pistol Bank down south might be worth a look.
Some people on this particular thread have their panties in a very serious wod.
That’s good fishing, Dan! And beautiful seas to boot!
I truly feel if you have a crew of 4 on board watching 34 passengers, 2 of 4 should be on watch so they keep each other awake. They can trade off...
Why use the RSW when you don't have to? How about some love for the old potato sacks...
Love paddies like that!
Nick, you are the king of the 1/2 day! Good stuff!
Nice work, MacGyver! That's a fun 1/2 day for sure.
When did Shelter Island start selling lunches? LOL
We’ve all been the recipient of Pepe Le Pew at least once in our fishing lives. Get used to the smell.
Nice report at both ends of the spectrum. That fella who fell ill was obviously a fighter.
Hats off to our service men and women of the US Coast...
The owner, Scott, runs a professional group of guys on the big bird. A lot of fun to fish with and they assist instead of casting jigs like some...
Nice work pops!
Please post your report here when you get back. Bring plenty of sun screen and Dramamine.
Yep I remember when anything over 50 pounds was huge. As of a couple years ago, 90 is now a shorty.
One paddy limits. That’s a good day!
Frustrating yet fascinating
I would typically have our fun first, then call in the flotilla.
Thanks for the report!
I like to billy-club the fish to put it out of its misery first, then cut open the gill plate to bleed.
Steady bites of yellowtail is a very good thing.
GW for sure. Very cool!
That’s a very cool bow!
Well done! Was that a cedar plug chain that got bit?
Or NFL with IPA’s and smoking fish!
Great day for harbor halibut and pinto bass! Looks like snot offshore.
Stay home, Nick.
Nice Kurt! Somehow the aches and pains of a long, WFO fishing day seem to work out.
Is that one of those new Lagunitas rod belts? LOL Mine's a...
That’s just nuts.
Nice going, Cody! I have plans to head that way next Friday.
Praying for that “kelp loaded with yellowfin” scenario!
Have a good weekend -
Good effort, nice reward! Thanks for the report.
What about the poor guy that has to offload that shit while the patrons watch 10,000 pounds of slimey muck go back into the ocean. :smoking33:
Tuna are not catfish
Between Corey, Shawn, Cody and people trying to reach Doug on the radio, I need to get my ass out there and mix it up - soon.
Had to bail on...
Holy mola! Some serious steaks right there. Congrats!
The very best therapy is on that water, Corey, fish or no fish. Glad your bro was there to watch your back.
God is good. He is our savior through...
Nice work gents!
That’s a nice day!
That’s awesome! No secrets with Corey. Not even one of those lame photoshopped backgrounds we encounter.
What goes around, comes around.
Sound awesome, Lal! Glad you got some fresh ahi poke!!!
I would have no problem fishing with 50 people with perfect grade tuna like that! Plus you don’t have to sleep in the bunk house with any of them.
Perfect, manageable grade!
That’s a lot, but that’s an average of 4 per rod on quality fish. Stellar day IMO.
Great trip! Those are some beautiful yellowtail tunas!
I think he just woke up off the garage floor after his last post on Aug 6 and he’a already talking about Santa Claus. Go figure...
Beautiful fish! Congrats!
Awesome day right there!
I’m a gas-buying citizen! No different than dumping the ash tray! :D
Filleting tuna has to be one of the easier fish to fillet due to the 4 loins. Not many brutal scales to deal with like a WSB or some rockfish....
You don’t stand alone, Mike. We are all sisters and brothers of the same Father.
God bless you. Hang in there, pal.
Yep! Then I throw that bag of carcasses in the truck before filling up at my local gas station...:D They don’t seem to mind the flies as much as...
Get a nice Vacuseal, go outside with a hose, board, Victorinox filet knife ( my favorite), stone and a few IPA’s. You’re good to go!
At the very...
Glad to see the muddy water isn’t bugging the fish. Nice work!
As the saying goes, “never leave biting fish, unless you’re done for the day”.
I’m very sorry about this.
Oh yeah! Congrats!
Loss of life causing finger-pointing that will accomplish absolutely nothing between a bunch of speculators but trash talk and disrespect.
One of those grade will do just fine. Congrats!
Saweeet! That marlin photo deserves a spot on the wall!
"A smaller one, just a little over 100"???:eek:
Hammerhead = yellowfin.
Immature and zero IQ is what I got from that foul comment. Douche-bag.
Very nice set-up, LJ! Intuitive is the word I'm thinking of.
I see they are finally beginning work on my new, artificial surfing/fishing reef I...
That's nuts! :eek:
Crazy stuff right there!
I comprehend just fine. I comprehend the fact that’ you have your panties in a very tight wod, sir.
Solo limits. Nice Paul!
When something tragic that may have affected your life or a loved one, we’ll be sure to categorize it as “chit chat”.
Why would you let a tragic...
A fine flatty!
An extra large pair of blue suede shoes right there!
Nice work Dan! What kind of boat is Mi Sueno?
Unfortunately, it takes a gut-wrenching event like this that we all hope will make us better seamen, whether it implements new marine laws, or...
Is that a Corsair reel?
Fishing, boating, recipes, suggestions. It’s all good.
All this fish have been caught, processed and vacuum-sealed.
Brown water sucks.
Our prayers are with all affected by this tragedy.
It’s on BBC World news this morning. They said thus far as if this morning, 5 of 34 accounted...
Nice trifecta Jeremy!
So true. They don’t bitch like us gringos, they actually work very well together.
Congrats to the young lad!!!
All that ocean, but your neighbor in the fly bridge still needed to cuddle up to you guys. WTF?
What kind of fish were circling the paddy where the diver got the dodo? More dodos?
Yeah that lot is definitely not as roomy as it used to be. Thanks for the report.
Post your report here when you get back. Bring plenty of sunscreen and don’t forget your Dramamine!
Nice work! You’ll be doing the Hokey Poke on Labor Day for sure!
That’s awesome Kurt! :appl:
Now don’t be jinxing my trip next week with your wind-talk!!! It’s going to be flat calm all week! :smoking33:
A day with friends, cold beer and good conversation is the foundation. Gods blessings and nature will decide the rest.
Nice report! Can’t wait to get my chance later next week!
Slip and slide! Even a little spit or warm beer may have helped! LOL
Beats no bloody deck at all I guess!
Would you like to borrow my wash-down hose ???
Thanks for the great report!
Nice report Brian. Chunking always seems to be key with these fall football yellowfin.
I tried mentioning that a long time ago. :deadhorse
Thank God he’s still making cool videos :cheers:
Thanks for the report. It’ll happen for you eventually.
No lack of activity, that’s for sure. At least when our awesome service men and women suggested you leave the area, it didn’t take long to find...
That’s some classic shit right there! I’ll never get sick of that movie.
Time for a kill bag!
Nice day old man! LOL Dang Corey, you don’t look a day over 40 with those biceps!
Have a good Labor Day weekend my friend. And easy on the Old...
Thanks, Corey! Nice workout! What ever happened to good ol Randy, anyway?
Nice work, Corey! What kind of bait were you using?
The Cody and Corey Show! Outstanding fellas!
Plenty for the freezer. Nice haul!
Classic rage right there! Hilarious!
Nice post Mike! Glad nobody thru a jig at you guys!
Paddy yellows. Good stuff!
Outstanding! Gorgeous seas to boot.
So true, Jon.
Perhaps. I choose God.
Hmmmmm...wish we could go all the way back to the beginning.
I get it George. I’ve been a passenger on disrespectful sport boats, and I’ve been the recipient as a private boater. It’s almost like the “I’ve...
Your hair was much shorter 11 years ago, too.
Dude that is fricking awesome!!! The fish and the Beer Can!
Nice! I love pangas!
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see...”
LOL Of course I'm not kidding!
2.5 days of good times! Those YT look great!
On those seas says it all! Looks like ice.
Nice report! Congrats! :appl:
Yeah things seem slightly behind schedule, but I am trying to remain optimistic. :smoking33: Saturday looked like a great day to be on the water...
Too many panties in too many wods in this scenario. Exactly why I prefer private over cattle. I’ll fillet my own fish, thanks.
I love nature
Thats a good day!
I’m starting to believe in the 226!
That’s a quality day Jim!
Always nice having an island close by as a back-up.
Very cool when the unexpected happens!
Yes, you want a belt! Awesome fish, dude!
Good job, kiddo! :appl:
Some serious variety right there!
"That aint working, that's the way you do it...."
Definitely sounds like an afternoon bite overall. Thanks for the report!
(That 10 second count was actually 15)
Good call, bitch! :cheers:
Wish I could accept the congrats on this one for sure, Regina, but I'll pass it along to the kid and his dad if our paths cross! LOL
Not bad for a hangover! Good job!
Not sure if someone posted news about this 15 year old landing a 212 pound swordfish on Sunday with hook and line. It was on OC Register. Just...
That’s a nice day of fishing!
Awesome fish! The fight of that huge YT from that far up must have been crazy, along with the pier piling obstacles. That’s just nuts! Would love...
That’s what I was wondering. 50# test would even be tricky.
Nice day of fishing! That's my kind of grade (lower back).
Good grief - this post has become quite hilarious and interesting all rolled up into one.
Outstanding post and hit's the heart strings for sure. Hat's off to all the veterans who have served this great country, and the service people...
Ralphs is having a 50% off all pork sale. Time to fire up those smokers!
Have a superfantastic day!
Totally get it, Nick!
Cooler heads prevail, and also keeps the blood pressure in check. Yes, I would be pissed and unfortunately I've seen worse,...
Your day job as a graphic artist doesn't look too bright, Corey. Better stick with fishing and awesome videos my friend.
Looking pretty spiffy at the helm of that sweet boat, Corey!
I started to go into dejavus-mode watching this different angle. Outstanding bite...
Last month my friend and I had a large shark breezing about 15 miles south east of Catalina. It kept about a 20 yard distance from us but was...
That massive thing was jumping somewhere around the house? Yikes!
The butt gaffe.
Moderator, please hand me the keys to the lock....
“....and that’s what it’s all about!”
Wally’s World! Glad everyone is safe.
Awesome! I was at Cat last week for a few days and the flotilla was focused just south of Avalon before the freight docks.
Tweezers and a magnifying glass works pretty well if you have the patience.
Great video and awesome boat, Corey! I have now decided to trade in my kayak for a new Everglades with twin 300’s.
With twin 300’s I hope so!
People forget, fish are like light switches out of reach. Flipping it on is not always that easy. Good on you to be tenacious at the...
No kidding, Greg! In good, close company, too! LOL
Well done, Corey! I typically gaff my fish using my teeth when I have multiple lines in the water, too. Make's all the difference to be...
Just a matter of time. Question is, how much time? :smoking33:
I get your point Bill, but personally I would rather get burned on my own if it’s going to happen. I don’t invite the chef and waiter to the table...
Good news! Thanks!
Damn carcass-dumpers stinking up the neighborhood again!
Sorry you were only to get one 100# fish on the yummy. Better luck next time.
Awesome! Glad to see the YFT are here to kick off football season.
Employees should not be fishing unless invited by a charter master. Happens way too often. The reason I prefer to keep $ and go private.
Flex those muscles! LOL
Been there, done that, and will do it again. Gotta pay to play, but you won’t know if you don’t go.
You were almost a newsmaker....
They seem to advertise and promote central and SoCal sport boat trips as their main stay. Plus they don’t use spellcheck LOL, or someone is...
Don’t doubt that albacore thought, Dave. September 2011 was nuts.
That would be a little unnerving (hence the recommendation on extra underwear). Wholy :shithappens: !!!
For some reason they just don’t seem as...
I plan to turn that place around next week. Will be fishing for 3 consecutive days. (Don’t jinx it Mike) LOL
You’re crazy. That IS a salmon. Wow!
The wahoo are running a little late. WTF? LOL
Never a leave a paddy unturned. Congrats!
Those fish are enormous! Enough meat right there to serve up a turkey-sized slab at Thanksgiving!
Congrats on a great experience!
Got ya, Jim! I meant algebra.
7 x 300 = 2100
I must be bad at geometry...
Great report Erik! Thanks for the positive info.
Very nice boat!
When you are a clueless, ocean-destructive moron, there's always a possibility someone may think you are on serious drugs.
I haven't seen anyone...
That video was reel cool, Corey!
The human population doubled since last year. Quite frankly, I think people in boats just like you. Could be...
Very nice fish and seas to go with it! Pops making it happen in flip-flops is priceless.
I'm guessing a 20-25 lb fish or better! Congrats, dude!
They will give the keys to a boat to anyone, Nick. Clueless boneheads, included.
Glad you and your pop had some time on the water. Miss those...
Times do change. Fishermen just don’t accept change as well as other humans.
Hopefully we will all be pleasantly surprised when the albacore...
Nice write up Cory! Sorry you missed what sounded like a worldly WSB bite the day before, but still good stuff with good friends.
I have great...
Years ago we chartered so great trips with Ken and his crew. He’s a great captain and typically finds the fish.
Temp is finally bumping up a little. Hope the Dana dodos show soon!
Speaking of the Native Sun, on a full load of 90, prior to concession sales, that’s $6300 a day. How much do you reckon fuel costs them a day,...
Maybe not a good place to dive on kelp...:eek:
It seems there’s not much he hasn’t caught! What’s left? LOL
It's always worth a look when something feels fishy. Good on you for the exploratory mission. Pay-dirt awaits on the next trip!
Way to go, Jim!
Coronado's do have some beefy bones, no doubt! And a hefty snot stick to boot! Thanks for sharing!
I see green in our future...
That's a nice day of fishing!
I'm seeing green!
Good eats right there, Stevo!
Damn that is a nice sled to lose over $50 crackers!
Good on you Andrew for doing what you could. Lives before materials.
Those ones that take us to the rocks is what makes us come back for more! Nice work, Cody!
Sounds strange but willing to try anything. Seems a stagnant YT in the water would be what entices them.
I’m still taking notes at 56...
Slider looks good with the fancy, shmancy new bimini top!
Nice report and glad you got some good family fishing in!
Personally I like to round it out around 53. 60 is pushing it for a claustrophobic guy...
Great first post! I popped your “like” cherry for you, too! Aahhhhhhhh
We were there!
These photos were from August, 2015. Friend and I were no more than 5 miles out of Oceanside Harbor. Fish grade was 30-60 lbs. You can see San...
Watering grass costs more than concrete. Brilliant
It's almost football season. Let's get started.
That's a nice day of fishing!
Those sometimes allusive yellowtail. Makes me love them even more.
Nados has the biggest bones I have ever caught. Good stuff!
Maybe Mac man should have his own YouTube series?
That’s a beauty!
Good choice to look! That temperature break is crazy right now. When is the dodo invasion supposed to begin?
That’s a nice over-nighter of fishing, pops!
Showing the boys how to stick out for a potential reward (potential) and getting a reward is a major lesson to achieve. Kudos on you pops!
Nothing better than Catalina yellows in the summer time!
Someone donate this good man a new Talica and Super Seeker!
I feel your pain, Cam.
SLIDER 2.0. :appl:
Thats crazy! :appl:
Great report, John!
Oly, They have a same day trip on a 90 ft boat with 24 max @ $125.00. That's a good deal IMO.
You're such a bieber
I love you man! LOL I popped your "like" cherry for you, too.
Nice work Jonathan! YFT are our friends, no doubt.
Nice trip! People working together is the key!
Blues are very rare these days. Haven’t seen one in over a decade. Hope they bounce back.
Great report! Lucky bastards!
Ouch. I feel your pain.
Be careful buddy! I’m still learning from you and I haven’t learned enough yet.
That’s a nice day of YT fishing right there!! Green with envy! :D
Thanks Bill. What area are they catching yellowtail? In March we were having good success on the NW end of Carmen.
Local footballs. Good stuff!
Something is fishy about this post....
Hey Bill! We’re heading down to Loreto this Sunday to fish for a few days. Our captain said the striped marlin are thick. Have the larger dorado...
You need to print and frame the photo of you and pop with that mega-biscuit! Congrats!
Good grief! How do you keep your balls of steel afloat on that yak?
Makos can hit their prey at bursts of up to 60 mph. No worries, you won’t...
Thanks Erik! Nice work.
Yeah that pressure will be relentless in a couple days.
Looks like a nice day, Nick!
You have large feet or those might be goldfish. :D
I’m going to pick up where I left off after lunch.
Nice work, Jonathan! We were clearly in the wrong place. I hope Mike Hanson doesn't see this post! LOL
Great report! Even the kids realize it’s more fun to pose with a mossy than a slippery, snot stick. LOL
We covered 140 miles after sniffing 2 banks and the island. Water was deep blue, clear and about 68. Catalina saves our ass with a decent Calico...
Bonito wahoo hybrid. Funky to say the least.
Where and when was this caught? Looks like contraband from the other website. You're about to get...
El Nino can bring along some crazy stuff. Not crazy enough for our 209/267/Cat Island venture on Friday, though. Released about 40 calicos at the...
Thanks, JD! Long time since I heard a peep out of you! I hope all is going well with your sons studies, and you better start posting some news -...
Nice work, Corey! At 2:16, I could have sworn you had a fish just about to hit your line before you pulled it out of the water!
Your wife is...
A snot-stick extravaganza!
Great news Cory!
Thanks John! That alternate route used to be my normal stroll through the neighborhood when I had my boat!
Wish I could but not my sled!
Nice going Cody! Perfect grade ahi!
Glad you guys made it back ok!
I had a feeling you or someone else would steer me in that direction, Mike. :deadhorse I hate to say it almost seems like a sure thing, (just ask...
I know, shame on me for posting in the report forum, but this Friday I plan to return to this post with some optimistic news.
Heading out with a...
Agreed. 20 lb is perfect line for pulling YT off kelp or the more "playfull" size tuna.
Thanks for the report, Bill. Our small group will be there 7/7-7/11. Hoping to Dodos will show in decent numbers before we get there, but a wide...
There’s some shady people passing by that parking lot from time to time.
Nothing like fishing with pops! Congrats on his first mossy!
Welcome to my no legal WSB (yet) club. I've been fishing salt for 45 years.
Black market, flat-fall specialist.
Outstanding! Calm, cool, and collected...
And I agree, this report is top-notch and deserves 13,000 trophy points and a BD T-shirt.
Are you witting right now? LOL Couldn't help myself, Mike.
Crab? I must have eaten a lot of bad ones! I find triggers to make great ceviche.
Minor details? Atlantic, Pacific, Lake Arrowhead?
Awesome! Pass the gravy!
Thanks for sharing! I almost felt like I was there.
Awesome! Your sons guns grew after that fight for sure!
Yes it is about time. Don’t ever miss a report again or we’ll send the skunk spirits after you.:cussing:
Sean is no boy anymore! That kid has got some shoulders, especially handy when holding up some hefty reds and a goat! I hope his studies are going...
Wow Mike, that is a humbling 3 days of fishing, especially with all the YT news at Catalina lately! Trolling can be a demoralizing event,...
That's a nice day!
That's a nice day! Thanks for sharing.
Putting the wood to the trifecta. Nice work gents!
Hey Lucas, that's actually satellite imagery showing sea surface temps and levels, monitoring El Nino and La Nina events - not a storm. NASA/JPL...
Yep just to get a chance at one!
That's some great action right there! Beautiful fish. Thanks for sharing!
This may have something to do with it. Where are those wahoo already?
Nice Cody! Pass the Doritos please!
Those are BIG fish!
Wow what a great trip!
I certainly don't hate you, Corey, as many people likely don't (maybe just a little frustrated when I'm watching you catch my favorite fish from...
Nicely done! A trip with variety.
I heard the Long Point MPA area was the place to be! LOL
Better luck next time!
Nice report, Dan!
Limit style fishing right there!
If he does and goes solo hooking a behemoth, put the PFD on for Gods sake, Corey! :smoking33:
A 2 hour fish is a worthy fish! Congrats!
Great photo Michael, and thanks for the great intel!
Send those schools about 40 miles north when you get a chance, right around Oceanside -...
Congrats! Some nice eats you got there.
I'd rather fish for brute yellowtail from a skiff, thank you very much. I like my odds...
The Marina Coral is pretty nice as far as accommodations to stay at. I would guess you could find a 6 pak operation referral through the hotel....
That brown one with two eyes on one side is an adult sand dab. Great eating.
Very nice! Best of luck with the hip work. You'll be reeling in no time.
You can't even share half of a 110 # fish, but kudos for trying.
My two pesos...
I admire the captain who chooses a different course for pay dirt. Sort of why I prefer looking for paddies in the open ocean over...
I don't see the El Capital? LOL
Nice work, Vic! :cheers:
Your buddies may decide to get their flakey asses out of bed next time...
No photos of the 25#? fish? LOL
Can you say El Nino...? Wowza!
Some funky looking clouds in that first photo?
Sorry for son's loss. I have felt it many times.
I agree the cracker size hamachi should have been released. Over 10 lbs is when they just start feeling their oats and are able to reproduce....
Wow! That’s a life-timer, John! My hats off to you brother.
Good effort going solo and decent reward!
Dude that is awesome!
BS without pics, John! LOL
Nice work, regardless! :appl:
I’m still hoping for my first keeper and you pull in 2 like it’s second nature. Whatever...:appl:
Good points, Ashton. The negative experience I had last year was a 1.5 day on the ........, with a full load of 30+, wide open skipjack and yft...
Let me add, there are several great sport boats I continue to fish because they do it the right way. But man how those unfortunate trips make you...
That’s real sad, Mike. I hope they figure it out. We need nature, but nature definitely does not need us.
That pig is tilting the boat! Sweet!
Not legal. And the next fucking deckhand, cook or captain I see fishing on a boat I paid to be on is swimming home. So sick of that crap. I was on...
Awesome Cory! Glad your doing great!
Nothing over 5 pounds means no more Calicos for while! LOL
I’m not surprised you work for a meat processor....
They are contact lenses
I call BA without pics...
Nice report! That boat will get you where you want to be - yesterday. :cheers:
Did you guys realize you all have the same sunglasses on? LOL
Fido at the helm!
Great ceviche! (just don't cook those things)
Sweet day to be on the water and dinner to boot!
Seeing those photos makes me wonder about my own sanity. :eyepoppin:boobies::drool:
I like the fact you have 2 islands in Cat and SCI within a decent reach of each other. Warm water species seem to migrate up the canyon in and...
The Patriot needs to add some wood to those icy cold rails...
I guess the fish are really big there...dang dude!
I concur :smoking33:
Hard to beat a wide open paddy bite! Nice work, buddy!
Hat's off to you, Corey. We should remind ourselves 365 days a year why we are able to live the life we do in the USA. I use the day to visit my...
Thanks, Ron! Hope to see that shoulder in action on the Big Bird this year!
:appl:Nice day gentlemen! The last photo of the big goat, biscuit and mossy says it all!
Biscuit with extra gravy!
San Clemente north by the train station at Pico.
After fishing straight mono for many years, I began using braid with flouro top shots on most of my set-ups (TLD 25, Torium 30/20/16, and Tranx...
:appl:Decent grade! Those sandy-looking YT on the deck look like they were caught from shore.
Looks like great late summer or fall fishing? Seas were perfect with an open yellowtail bite! Simply awesome!
Seems like that’s when our last local bite was...40 years ago. :eyepoppin
Hmmmm...I think I killed it that year! LOL
Very honestly, I think we were in a La Nina state at the time, but the surf was good! See Jason...
A few things I like about this video:
#1 - instead of trying to fish 2 rods at a time like my bonehead friends do sometimes, you...
Look for diving birds, lots of tidal movement, slow troll a live mac (they are pretty durable in a 5 gallon bucket if you can sabiki some bait),...
Just 25 knots or more? Yikes! You guys did make a good day out of it! Thanks, Dan!
Butt on the plastic, nice!
Heart break at 13:08! Felt that short-term agony many times, Corey. The first day you guys didn't have a breath of wind - nice!
Nice Eric! And crackers for the kid! :cheers:
Good work, Rodney! Welcome and good luck!
Thanks, Lal! Was hoping you would keep us posted. Good vibes for Cory!
The best fish to pull on, IMO! Nice day of fishing with friends!
Nice Dave! I was playing air guitar for 4 minutes! :git:
That’s a nice trip!
Nice day with a little variety!
I'm Republican, and wish I were a boy again. Thanks for chiming in Ricky.
I'll bet Bozo the Clown has something to do with this...LOL
Cory on his speedy return...
Nice looking potato sacks!
Unwanted buddy-boaters are like the fleas of the thousand camels infesting your armpits. Simply uncomfortable knowing they're there.
LOL My sarcasm can be annoying at times. Skol, Jason!
Does anyone know what is happening with all the old posts?
Looks like a nice day for checkers, Dan! Nice to see you out there making it happen.
And may you have many more yellowtail to come, grasshopper.
Great experience despite the loss.
I tip my hat to you sir
Bet that young man will appreciate a rod belt now!
With 90 around the bait tank, probably best to form a single file line...:eek:
Probably run into a distant cousin.
Like father, like son! Nice report!
Nice grade! On the coffee grinder, even! LOL
No blast if you don't cast! Nice YT!
Well wishes for a speedy recovery, Cory! You're as tough as you are salty, so we will see you in due time!
Mexican rockfish already sprinkled with chili and lime is what it looks like!
Not sure how to say it, but it appears to becoming the norm. WTF?
[ATTACH] No disrespect to the OP.
Amazing how a tiburon post wakes people up, though. Probably a good thing. Respect.
I think that was a same day trip! Even better.
I believe it Nick, although Jason pointed out it is an old video. I’m 55, and I remember as far back as Catalina summer camp when I was about 8...
Yeah you better get this post moved, Randy, or Cory is going to bust your chops!LOL
That’s one of the best full day tuna trips I’ve ever seen. Those are not small fish by any means!
Great report and nice pay dirt!
Nothing wrong with sharing numbers IMO. It’s a big ocean.
That’s crazy. Here’s the GoPro video from the forum.
Truly hoping that eel became table fare and not photo carnage.
Nice new avatar, Victor!
Crazy awesome trip! After the past few years, I feel like these fish have found a new home in SoCal. Just need to keep our over-seas neighbors and...
Ah yes, the aroma of the tailgate fillet!
They will give the keys to a boat to anyone - anyone.
Sounds like a nice trip! Congrats on getting to pull on some mossback! My kind of therapy.
That’s a nice day of linging!
Classic experience Sam! Better hold on to that lucky rod & reel, and hold on tight dude!
Could be better than Naked and Afraid. Unless one is fishing naked, they could simply change the venue and keep the name.
Did someone say kelp paddy yellowtail?!?! Singing my song. Thanks for the heads-up!
Perfect grade IMO! Congrats on being a “news-maker”!
Hmmm..how about a float tube next time just for shits and giggles?
April barries bring May mossies...
Ah yes, the all too familiar dues trip!
Awesome stuff Corey!
Is that the new sled with the blue interior? Nice!
Those green, lush islands will look like brown desert dirt in about a month.
Nice salmon fishing on nice seas! :appl:
Whopper of a day right there!
No need to hold those fish against the camera lens like too many others do, they are a good grade!
I still prefer the Oasis. Too many friends and memories there to have us go elsewhere.
Good luck, Shon.
I wonder why there are so many boats out there?
That's a nice day!
Wish my brother would fish with me! Still not giving up on him!LOL
Nice, Don! Nothing wrong with an 11 hour plunker bite!
I think you found a new avatar photo!
Those lizards are plain old annoying. Congrats on the butt. Kudos for taking care of your pal!
Well over 50. Congrats Brett!
Awesome report and photos! That empty chair photo says it all!
It's the "look at me, my boat is bigger" syndrome. They should walk the plank...
Hopefully scatter another 50 miles north of San Diego, right around the kelp in the Pendleton area, if I could be so picky.
This could be the first ever pose with a bluefin next to a fire hydrant. :appl:
Good news. Switch flipping to "on" in April. Hola El Nino. Let's go dodos.
Nice report! What family memories are made of.
I've been using some of my same reels and rods for decades, they look great and have fought countless battles. I treat them with the same care as...
Dude that is awesome! :appl:
That is a fun-size turd, no doubt!
Been on plenty of sporties, but never had my rods stacked in a pile like that mess. Rods guides can certainly get messed up, and nobody likes...
How did you do?
You won't know if you don't go. And Cat is a great place to go!
Good attitude to consistently raise that awareness, Stevo. I'm okay with keeping a couple 5# fish if that is what the day has to offer, but no...
Nice going, Anthony! Looked like a perfect day with your son. Good luck on the next trip.
When a 2 year old thread gets revived, that tells you something, but not sure what that is. :smoking33:
Some fish is better than no fish!
Nice ling Cody!
Love cabrilla fishing! Great write-up.
That’s an XL lager!
Oasis will accommodate you with everything. Plus Neky makes the best margaritas in Loreto. Clam bbq on the patio every Saturday night with music....
Try El Peddorito. Not sure how to get hold of these guys, a couple gringos, but they post a lot of YouTube videos and seem to run a business with...
Bring the kitchen sink and you'll be fine.
Nacho may or may not have squid.
Hmmmm....with all the nice fish photos, maybe time to update the avatar of your choneys. :eyepoppin
You're a smart man for staying put, Matt!
Checkers anyone? :appl:
120 YT is a good day, regardless of the load.
:urno1: Awesome! Dude has a new fishing hat and full of stoke!
Nothing more fascinating for a little rookie than hanging by the bait tank!
Nice trophy there, Jim!
The yellowtail switch has flipped to “on”
Nothing wrong with a wide open yellowtail bite!
I love the Coronados! Nice work gents
Now this is funny! A friend of mine (about 45 years ago) had a camp counselor named Joe King. They just kept saying "you must be Joe King". I...
Nice fishing, Jonathan! I'd take inshore popper fishing over cow-fishing. Looking forward to seeing your local posts with Steven this season....
I do! They will be fishing somewhere between here and there for sure. The fish show up to this area every year now.
Nice trip. You must hear it all having a birthday on April 1.
Those boat burgers always make my home-grilled burgers taste awful. I always thought someone should open an on-the-water, to-go diner boat during...
At a boy, Cory! Nice itch-scratcher for sure!
The man used to own the Royal Polaris. I think he already knows what a real boat (and charter) are.
Someone’s a little bitter.
Thanks for the post OP.
Another 5 year old post comes back to life....
Dues paid and them some, Mike! This was a hard read knowing you typically have something in the box.
That's good stuff right there!
Alfred Hitchcock just turned over in his grave.
My go-to bed and continental breakfast...with free WiFi
Good grief this is a tricky one. Some sort of hidden message or something.
My favorite gear to shift to...overdrive.
Yes that is “legal size” and then some. :appl:
Here’s my two cents on the bag limit chat...
Good stuff Axel!
Non-stop checkers. Good stuff!
It’s a crack up to see old posts revived to live another day. Priceless
I work directly with my friend who charges $250 for the day. Through a hotel the same panga will be about $300. If you work direct with the...
That is one big sheepshead!
Got get’m Frank! The place looks incredible!
Nice report, Tomo. Great looking stripers!
Thanks, Mike! Missing the tequila and lime already. But I'll be back in 3 months.
Hot pink? LOL
Thanks, Mike. Considering how close LTO is, it would be a great call to take your wife down there. Inexpensive, beautiful, sleepy town with plenty...
There were a couple guys on one boat on day one that caught 8 fish in about 2 hours on the srambled egg surface iron. We didn't have any yellow...
Thanks, Corey. I do feel lucky.
This was my first time back to LTO since 2013. Watching over my dad with a flurry of health issues at 83 took...
You’ll be glad to did, Jon. IMO it is better than the big city of Cabo. No prostitution, spray paint on the wall or any kind of criminal activity....
Thanks Jim! I’m ready for more freight trains!
Here you go...https://www.vrbo.com
Noah aka “Neky” has been running that bar for 40 years and makes an awesome handmade margarita. So many memories there!
Glad I could get you pumped up! We stayed at The Hotel Oasis as we have for every year we have been there. They will make all the fishing...
Smart man. Good luck Fred!
Thanks, Chris! Get your butt down there, you know you will be glad you did!
Okay, I realize this is not SoCal, but it is Baja "Cal", and I figured the forum I frequent the most needed a little preseason jump-start.
I love freight trains! Congrats!
Good to see you out there,Corey! The ocean is waking up.
Been to all 3, but Loreto is hands down your best bet IMO. In fact, I’m here now ready for spring yellowtail fishing beginning tomorrow! Yes, it...
That’s a good day of fishing!
Some decent butt posts lately! Congrats!
Nice hauls! No apology necessary!
The other kind of trolling! LOL
I have been fishing with the same captain and his brother for over 20 years. His name is Placido. Number is 613-114-35-05 (cell). Very...
Nice day of fishing!
Nice snappers indeed! Heading to Loreto next week for some 80 degree relief and hopefully a furious bite!
I say go for it. Just don't get caught.
Congrats on the PB! Beauty!
Loretopam "(USA- you own this extinction!)"
Hey Pam , I was born in the USA. And my wife was born in Mexico.
Please remember there are many...
Yeah let’s just wipe out the entire ecosystem so nobody has anything to fight over.
Harassment is not nearly enough for morons cutting shark...
Awesome! Weather looked spot on!
Lizard fish are also open year round, FYI. No limits either.
Vic, I’ll take mine unfiltered please!
Biggest Sandbass I’ve seen a while! Nice day of fishing right there!
White shark. Dean or Mac?
God is great!
49.5 # for sure! Congrats
You will find structure where there are lobster pots. Also the outer edge of kelp beds.
Ignore the critical jerks on this board. Nobody owns...
Awesome Noah! Even better with your pop hanging with you!
Sick people. Probably got Vaseline all over his mouse, too.
That is a big red no doubt!
No quit in this report. Way to stick with it! = reward
Nice! (And your holding it just fine)
Details in link below - PM me if you are interested.
Doesn't matter what size - beautiful fish! Looks like it was great day to turn over paddies.
Smart men, you are.
Fair-weather anglers stay home...LOL
Too many fair-weather fishermen miss opportunities like this.
Great report, great results for your effort! If I still had by boat I’d be out...
One life feeds another. Awesome, Cory! Even if that was the only fish caught...
Nice! I'll be back for that one in March.
Finicky bastards! Thanks for the report.
We need to get this dude involved. This is fricking priceless.
Speechless and envious. Great report as usual, Erik!
Spoiled rotten are those San Diegens!
Just don't mention NFL football to them...:eyepoppin
I'd crank hundreds of feet for a couple nice lings like those! :appl:
Maybe the clowns were late for the circus? LOL They'll give boat keys to...
Doubters are funny. Especially when they're trying to remove their foot from their mouth.
The past half dozen years the tuna, whether YFT or BFT, have been around during odd and normal times of the year, at least as I recall anyway....
Nice size lingers! :appl:
1 for 67. You’re a lucky man.
Cold? Head to my parents home state of Pennsylvania and that will change your mind, unless you prefer ice-fishing.
Have a superfantastic 2019!
Nice job gentlemen! Time to get out the fryer and tortillas!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Ronny!
Just in time for the rockfish closure. Sounds good to me.
Rachel Ray's days are numbered, LJ.
Nothing compares to juicy lizard fish. End of discussion.
Future Angel right there!
Looks like a nice day on the water, Mike. Great job on the release. Looks more like 200#
Oh the agony of defeat! Followed by an f-bomb. How many times have we all experienced that? LOL
I couldn't tell you where, but I am firm believer it cat food chumming while using the sabiki. Good luck!
Good effort, Cory! With this revitalized El Nino kicking in, and this being the established P.E.I. west now, I would keep looking.
I truly wanted...
Reuse, recycle, repurpose.
Thanks for cleaning up out there, Doug!
Some people can't live without a security blanket and nipple.
Nice bugs, by the way.
Bycatch of a lifetime! Congrats!
Looks like a great time, Mike! Thanks for the post.
Mystery fish always keep you coming back to solve the mystery...or not.
Great fall conditions!
That’s a lot of meat
Beer is our friend
Well done Cody! You’ve had a very successful year for your effort. Well deserved.
Well done! Late season missies!
Great trip and perfect grade ahi!
Happy Thanksgiving, Corey!
Great report! :appl:
I think the young lady to the left believes the day of fishing ain't happening.
The folks at the Embarcadero or shipyard will assist. Better off checking the straps, though.
Beautiful fall fishing at it's best!
Great report for 11/15. There are definitely some upsides to El Nino. Predicted to linger into 2019.
Those triggers will chew your pliers in half. Great ceviche IMO
They are central pacific, buck-toothed walrus. Everyone should know that. Geez
Nice going, Rich!
Amazing how these grande BFT have found a new home in our local waters, or maybe they finally returned home. Who cares.:smoking33:
Separate names with a comma.
