    Islander 1.5d 7/19-21

    I rode on the Dolphin last Sunday and had fun, see my write up in the Inshore reports section. The boat found plenty of fish right off the point. Could be worth considering for you and your youngster.

    7/17 Dolphin half day with medical emergency ending

    Ultimately same result. Since I hooked one and brought him in, but eventually came off at the boat I say I lost it. Those that I brought in only a raked bait, short bit, missed a hook set entirely, broke off... I farmed. In my use of the words anyway.

    Any recent feedback for Long Run?

    Here's my follow-up on our six pack charter 7/17. To start things on a positive note, I will say that skipper Blake was accommodating and mostly pleasant. That's it for the start. The Long Run is not a fishing boat. This has been mentioned in many reviews that can be found on the web. I am...

    7/17 Dolphin half day with medical emergency ending

    Last minute decision to stick around town and I rode on the Dolphin for the afternoon bite. Quite a few folks maybe 50 aboard. After getting lots of bait we quickly pulled up to a spot right off the point. Found fish pretty much immediately, crew did a great job bringing them up the whole...

    Value of the trip description

    I have been hesitating to get on 1.5+ trips because I'm confused about the trip info regarding passports. I assume that just because the trip description doesn't explicitly say "Passport required" that doesn't mean the they won't be required if/when there is "last minute" a decision to head to...

    Reading through the 12 pages in this thread is as educational as it is entertaining! Thank you for taking the time to share your varied experiences. As a newbie with no offshore experience, what I gather is: there are many tools for anglers to choose from and so why not consider equipping...

    I appreciate the input. That's a great deal and I see it's still valid as of today! Definitely something to consider.

    First "big boy" rig

    I think I've narrowed down the choices for me to invest in my first 2 speed. I might go with HX Raptor, 80# LB solid/80# mono topshot on a Grafighter 770HX. A bit much for my first 2spd? I don't know but I want to feel confident with even the possibility that I may get hooked up with one of...

    This is cool. I'm trying to come up with a system for the roof rack on my FJ. Why did you choose to angle them like that vs. more horizontal?

    A friend has booked the Long Run for an all-day trip in a couple of weeks. I've searched all over and found very mixed reviews. I think the most recent posts here are 2+ years old. Do any of you know/have any experience with this operation? Thanks.

    Popping combo for BFT - HELP!

    How do the Okuma Azores reels measure up? I saw a Z-80S (rated 350 20# mono) yesterday that caught my eye. Also lots of recommendations on tackle but what makes a popping rod a popping rod anyway?

    Which Fryer?

    I have a Cuisinart CDF 100 that is a ~1QT model. While it's convenient in that you get less oil in the kitchen, it's too small to cook meals IMO. Personally I would like to get a larger model as I think this one is more for quickly frying up a few wings or cheese sticks. I think it would take...

    I don't have docs to fish South yet. I am interested because, I understand this is a trip that will stay in US waters as it's described as a "local water exploratory". I just confirmed with Javier at PL: no passport/Mex docs are needed for these particular trips. So... do you guys have any...

    Ever pull on the same fish twice?

    I just experienced this a couple weeks ago in MB. Hooked up with a nice vina but broke him off. Same spot next day managed to land a nice vina with what I say was my "yesterday" hook in his choppers. Neat to see this isn't all that uncommon as I had originally thought.

    2.5 day on the Eclipse

    Cool report Tony! I have never been offshore/never been on a tuna outing, so I'm curious about the newer anglers' effect on the trip. Sounds like a lot of fish were lost, was that because they were cutting each other off etc or what? Just trying to soak it all in!

    Oceanside Harbor tips??

    Hey Scott... I had some pretty decent luck walking the rocks and docks particularly near the fishing pier as long as there was good tidal movement, warmer months. Fun spotties, smallish sandies, and an occasional butt on 2-3" swim baits. Good luck!
