    ? VP prop hub repair ?

    The hub on the forward prop on my VP DP has crept out forward some to the point where this prop rubs on the rear prop. Can I simply press the hub back into place with a 20 ton press and have much chance it will stay there and not spin? It is an aluminum D4 prop that is good shape otherwise. I...

    Anyone looked offshore below N Channel Ils?

    Bluefin have been up between Catalina and Clemente for a while now and there are marlin and dorado and tuna near Catalina. The water looks inviting all the way up to the Osborn and beyond. Santa Monica basin buoy has been at 73/74 degrees. We got a nice dodo out of Oceanside in 71.4 water a...

    Anacapa Marlin

    Hooked two on macs in the morning about a mile ESE of the arch. Nothing on jigs. Ton of bait out there - acres of it shoaling. Some tern activity that looked like tuna in the afternoon but no bighters for us.

    Amigo in Ventura is getting tuna

    I see the Amigo out of Ventura Sportfishing has gotten tuna everyday for the last 6 days. Anyone know how far south they are going for these fish? I'm guessing well down the backside of Catalina but hoping closer...

    7/5 BFT and yellers on the Wild West

    Fished down to the tuna pens east of the Hidden for several patties with yellows along the way. The tuna fishing sounded pretty slow for everyone except those fishing down in the Lower 500 range. Late in the day making our way back up the line we found birds working in the south end of the...

    Offshore predictions? Water is shaping up

    The water is warming up off northern Baja. This damn La Nina is finally dead and gone. Looks like some offshore yellowtail and tunas could show up any time. Some bluefin were reportedly seen at 200 miles a couple of weeks ago. Things could start happening soon. I'm gonna predict some tuna are...

    Fishfinder decision?

    Hope you guys can help. My older Simrad CE32 sounder has lost its 200 khz reading. I called Simrad and they think it is my unit and not the ducer. They say that it is rare to lose one frequency and not the other in the ducer. Not worth the cost to fix the sounder as I have never been happy...

    Avila/Morro Albies

    The Pacific Horizon out of Avila decked a couple of albies first thing this AM at 50 miles on their exploratory. Probably the Donut or Arguello Canyon area - someone had heard a private boat radio report of fish from this area a copule of days ago. Going to be blowing like a mofo starting thurs...
