    2.5 Day on the Eclipse - Bait Wraps 4/16 - 4/19 Canceled. Moved to the Commander

    Not on the Eclipse or Commander. FYI. No fuel surcharge. IF fuel is over $4 a gallon, fine. We try to make our trips as all inclusive as possible, it is a HIGHER ticket price, but you save in the end and always know what you are paying for.

    Offshore Thieves on long range boats?

    Thanks to all who replied to this thread. It is a very serious issue and one that would never go unaddressed on 99% of Sportfishing vessels in the Southern California fleet. Normally I wouldn't even respond to this type of post. But several of our awesome passengers have called or emailed me...

    Rob- if fish are close we will definetly fish the first afternoon out! I will most likely run that trip.

    Reverse 1 1/2 day trips ???

    Tim- Outstanding questions, thank you. From a boat owners standpoint, its a wash profitability wise. More often than not, we run 1.5 day trips to fish the afternoon bite. It really gives passengers an incentive to ride the boat and get rigged, relax and fish an afternoon bite and a morning bite...

    Reverse 1 1/2 day trips ???

    Juan- never say never LOL! Its an opportunity for more fishing time. Generally speaking, when Albacore bite in the afternoon, you are are the grounds all day with no real bites until late. The first day offers that opportunity on an inverse 1.5 dayer. Similar to the early or grey bite if you...

    Reverse 1 1/2 day trips ???

    Wanted to weigh in on this... My business partner suggested we started doing this in the summer. Can any of you answer this question? When is the best bite for albacore? Affternoon! Its what makes the 1.5 day trip so popular. But many times, our boat schedule dictates that we return from a 1.5...

    marauders...which ones ??

    Hey Dayle, I think I can count on one hand how many fish I have seen caught on the Mega Bait ones. They look great, but performance and production is poor. Maybe you'll get lucky, and catch a big fish with them. I hope you do. But overalll I would stick with the Braid and Yozuri models.
  59. Grouchomrk

    gulp squid???????

    Dropper loop, and 12/0 Easy Baiter Hooks. Gulp! Sqiuds seem to catch more Grouper, Larger Reds and Lings. THe Gulp! grubs in white seem to be what reds prefer overall. See Hoose's PQ report onthe Offshore reports from last week. Good luck. Tight Lines and Sharp Hooks
  60. Grouchomrk

    marauders...which ones ??

    At that price, buy as many as you can afford. Especially in the Black/Orange and Tony the Tiger. My favorite sleeper color for wahoo, especially later inthe long range season, as we have been dragging jigs all over thier heads for a month is the Skipjack pattern in the Largest size. Skins love...

    Catalina WSB

    Well I hope this encourages some fellas to get off the beach. The water right now is way too cold, and much too early in the season to fish 5 fathoms. Not to say that you cannot catch these ghosts in the shallows now, but I do believe odds are better in the deeper water. Thanks for the replies...
