    When I had my CC a few years back the BFT were doing the same thing. You slide up on them, throw everything at them and nothing. Started trolling rapala x raps way back from the boat and that was the trick to get them on the troll. That was the only way I was able to put BFT on the boat.

    Outboard with or without bracket?

    Looking into getting another boat, will probably be between 23-25ft. Looking to get opinions on advantages/disadvantages of a bracketed outboard. I know you get more room with a bracketed motor but its harder to fish around it. Any other info would be great including ride etc... Thanks in...

    Yellowtail on the Qualifier 105

    Very nice!! The Capt. made a good call going to Cedros even though its a long hall for a four day. That place has been on fire the past month or more.

    Other ways to get the word out

    Thats a good idea, maybe I will try to make it down to one of Laguna's city council meetings and speek up about the issue. Im not scared to try to keep my freedoms. I will post the details when I make it down there.

    Other ways to get the word out

    1st time posting, so sorry if I screw this up. I know there are a lot of fishermen/women that would like to make it to the MLPA meetings but are unable to. Try finding a meeting that your local assembly representative is hosting. The meetings usually don't take that long and are pritty...

    MPLA: Our voice no longer counts (ESPN Article)

    F-the government. These dumb shits get voted in by the people, so we can kick them out. Making us not have a voice, what is this, North Korea??? All states would loose out on so much money that is generated by the fishing industry. Hunting will be next! Would love to go one on one in the...

    Defiance, Parker or Steiger craft?

    Those are three good boats to choose from. The Steiger's are all composite construction and they do offer diesel also with a lifetime hull warranty. They seem like they are finished better than the Defiance. The BAMF boats look awsome also. Take a look at the Blackman 26 outerbanks. Good luck!

    Offshore newbie

    Maybe pick up some fluro and have an assortment of hooks. If the fish are shy drop down a hook size or two and throw the fluro on.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT PLEASE TAKE A LITTLE TIME TO BECOME INFORMED!

    Sounds to me like the MLPA should be more concerned with run-off into the oceans and factories that polute near the oceans. I don't think fishermen are the cause for our sometimes dirty waters. I have grown up near the ocean and do many different ocean activities, I would like to see someone...

    YOUR NEAR SHORE FISHING IS ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK...

    I hope everyone has been writing to their congressman and voicing their concerns about the closures. I have an inside connection to Assemblyman Jeff Miller and was going to write a letter to him so it can actually get into the hands of people who need it. Do you think it would be better to...

    Dana Point Local Report for 6/24/08

    Yeah, the $20 minimum bait at DP is a bunch of BS. I have the same problem with my boat. I called the company who owns the bait reciever but they don't have common sense. $20 gives 4 scoops of the net so $5 should be 1 net but they cant figure that out.
