    first fish you've ever caught ?

    First one was a catfish. Caught it out of the Pearl River with my father. Every year he and I try going back and fishing that spot. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    Build a hand line?

    I want to make a couple of hand lines for this year coming up. Any input would be helpful. How long of a line, how heavy of a weight, do you use a release to connect the line to the back of the weight, favorite jig? Right now, I have a four pound weight I am planing to use to keep it down. Then...

    Steps to a happy life: Squid @ the 9....01/07/09

    I was there as well. The whole boat was done fishing by 6:20. I was at the house by 9:30. When you clean them, you have to take of both membranes. ( The white film and the yellow flesh )Otherwise use it as bait. Also, don’t cook them longer than one minute or they will end up to tough to eat...

    Dumb Tackle question maybe

    I have a couple of the Trevala rods. The heaver one (80 to 200) I use as a yo-yo stick. It also works great to drop a dean on the slide. I have a lighter one as well (I think 30 to 80#) that is great for tossing a chovie underhanded when the rail is crowded. They are both on the shorter side...

    I use 65# spectra with a 3 foot leader of 30 to 40#. If I am rockfishing, I use 30 feet of mono.

    Some of the best fishing is right in front of your home town. Fish the outside kelp line with any minnow bait from spring to fall. I personally like the Rapala x-rap in the spotted minnow pattern. This time of year the fish seem to hole a little deeper. Try a 1 to 2 ounce fish trap bouncing off...

    Thanks guys

    Keep looking for the hard bottom. Most of all, keep looking. Macs and Bones are still working just as well as they were in the first part of the season. I found my last limit in 15 feet of water on Tuesday and five the day before in 50 feet of water. Fish the tides, and keep moving until you...

    North to South....So much FUN

    Nice report, thanks. I think I will try a few spots that look the same down here when the swell dies down. With the swim bait do you use a stop and go or just streight retrive.

    watch your stuff at mb!!!

    May not be a bad idea to drop the boat in and let a friend take it for a spin while you sit back and have a cup of coffee and read the paper. Did that a few years back at a ramp back in Louisiana with a few other guys. Be smart about how you handle the situation as you can end up in trouble for...

    fishing the tides

    Put them on the calender on your cell phone before you get on the boat. If your cell phone does not have a calender, text yourself the times you are intersted in and set the alarm on your watch.

    gasparilla catfish poisonous???

    It is a Sea Cat AKA Hard head catfish. Yuo can eat them, they just don't have the sweet white meat that fresh water cats do.

    knocked out of yak heads up!!

    At the end of the day, I just want to let everyone know what happen to me so they can make their own desions on how to handle the situation they are in. I just hope that the tree huggers let the seals know that it is open war now.

    I am almost willing to live with the tax man if it means putting the hurt on the seals. Even though this happened, I think my buddy is hooked.

    I went fishing yesterday at La Jolla looking for the bigger bonitos and yellows. Fishing was a little slow at first with lots of small bonitos in the 12” to 14” size. I was able to hook-up to a larger grade bonito, maybe 6 to 7 pounds. I was letting him play out a little bit before bringing...

    Condor on 9/19. Need advice please!

    Two thoughts on the flouro leader. Either a short 3 to 4 foot leader so the knot wont go through the guides when you cast. Or a 25 to 30 yard leader so the knot is on your reel when you cast. I can tie some great knots, I just cringe when they go through the guides. Uni to Uni or bimmine to...

    Tunanorth, your seminar at the Del Mar Fred Hall show help me and my Father put a few extra fish on the boat. Even put a large pargo (22#) on the boat with a Purple and Black Jet Popper you handed out. The little tips you gave out about traveling in Mexico help as well. Thank you very much!!

    8/28 Tuna swimming under the surfers at Ponto Beach in Carlsbad

    Fished from Ponto to Swamis in a kayak Sunday. Lots of small kelp bass on the outside of the kelp, and three bonitos between the kelp and the surf on the paddle back in. better grade of bass on the inside line of the kelp. Was using a small Rapla X-Rap in the spoted minnow, maybe 3" long.
