    I can die now.... 9/22 - Nine Mile Bank

    After posting my reply to Ali's accomplishment, I felt that i left something out.. After talking with him, I left coming away with the impression that he is one of the new guys in the business that is passionate about innovations that will make our sport better. My day has passed, hears to the...

    I can die now.... 9/22 - Nine Mile Bank

    Ali Good going on the fish!! This is a perfect example of persistence paying off. As I told you when we talked at the boat show last year, it took me 10 trips to catch one this way.. For those of you that think you are going to go out there, drop a bait down, and wind one in, bring good food...

    Please explain the logic behind this one

    Are you saying we can't fish the 72 fathom areas on the "9" in US waters?

    RR3 cited for overlimits in 2017

    The 2 dorado limit was just a part of the requests he made to pesca. I guess he thought 2 was enough for his small charter boats, so everyone else had to comply with his wishes. He also tried to limit the sd long range boats to promote his Solmar IV venture to soccorro.

    RR3 cited for overlimits in 2017

    I can tell you about how the 2 dorado limit came about. Around 1980 or so a guy named Louis Bulness (sp ? ) who owned the solmar fleet and hotel had a very good friend that was at the time head of pesca in baja. Louis had a personal agenda to accommodate his fleet and she did exactly what he...

    Descanso Rockfish/yellowtail trip

    My son and I went on the Premier the next day (yesterday) and had "good as it gets" fishing for big reds and a few nice lings. This is a very well run operation and a great opportunity for some good eating fish while they offer this trip.

    Polaris Deluxe ????

    Bought in westport in 2001 for $550,000 . Invested over 1000,000 in upgrades over 5 years and sold to a guy that took it up to Alaska for $500.000. It was fun for a a few years, but it didn't work out in the end.

    How many agree to this legislation....

    The only solution that would not really piss off one group or the other in obvious. We need to set a task force to capture as many male sea lions as possible and neuter them like you would a dog. This would be costly, but it is the only way the enviros would approve ANY action on a...

    San Clemente Island US Navy notice to fisherman..

    This is potentially very serious stuff. With all that is going on, it wouldn't take much for the navy to close the island down completely to all civilian use! We should all carefully check the web sight for restrictions, monitor ch 16, and make sure all other boats abide by these easy to...

    WTB Para Tech 9ft Sea Anchor

    I have a very good sea anchor that I used many times on a 70 ft long range charter yacht that I will sell for a lot cheaper than the other guy, but I am in San Diego. I do come up that way at times. John 818-429-1940

    Guadalupe in mid November, thoughts, what to expect. Worth it?

    The BFT disappeared about 6 years before the white sharks showed up in force. We saw 2 or 3 GWS in the first 100 trips and then around 2000 we would see 2 or 3 at a time when we had good fishing. You can check out my old posts for more of the BFT story...

    1)I have done some work on production trailer boats, and was somewhat unimpressed with the craftsmanship. Some of the glasswork was done as if in a hurry to build the next boat and the fuel tanks were paper-thin ect. My proclamation might be a bit of a stretch since I haven't worked on many...

    I have been reading your posts and realize you have a good understanding of the industry, unlike some of the other responders. The 2 fuel tanks (made out of 1/4 inch 5085 alum) are 39 and 17 gal. The boat tops out at 25 Knots but runs easy at 20 depending on sea conditions It runs at about...

    OK I misspelled a word. I am a fisherman, not a computer nerd. I challenge anyone to come to my house in Point loma and look at the boat and listen to me, and then talk about it. There is nothing old about this other than the hand laid up hull. You guys could learn something. I will make...

    typical BD smartass reply. If you saw this boat, you would realize haw stupid your comment was. I have probably washed more saltwater out of my socks than you have fished over. Do your homework before chirping

    Wire for Wahoo?

    If you click my name you can read my past opinion without me re-writing it. Wire on your jig prevents MOST of the snipoffs

    Wire for Wahoo?

    When a wahoo snips off an unwired jig, he dies a slow death. See my prior post for details

    Wire

    This is something that has been bugging me for some time. I have been at the helm of a boat fishing the long range areas for over 35 years and we have boated several thousand wahoo. Every time a guy casts a jig without wire and it gets sniped off, that jig loges itself in the gillplates of...

    Guadalupe bluefin

    We fished there extensively from 1980 on and targeted the big blue fin. We figured out a way to get them to bite heavy gear and worked it hard for 10 years or so. They were there year round back then. We caught over 100 in the 150 lb range with 7 over 260 and two over 300 with the biggest...
