    Boat hunt advice needed

    IMHO, a smaller boat that allows you to keep it in tip top shape and run for little money is the best thing. No need to fish 3 or 4. Just need room for 2, maybe 3. Find a guy with a bigger boat that is expensive to run. Fish inshore in your boat and offshore on his. You will find that time...

    Bow Nav Light Options

    The Reasoning Behind RGC Depth Limit Restrictions

    I think it was also an ease of enforcement issue. Follow the 50 fathom curve. No fishing west of that, at least for rockfish. Now we can fish 350, but you get the point.

    Crew treats?

    Thanks for the info guys. Its early in the season and 8 day not double digits trip but I am sure it will all be apprwciated. And I plan on tipping as well, but always good to start off on the right foot. Especially when the cost is about 2% of the trip ticket.

    A friend used to work the overnight boats. He said the best treat was when someone brought them non boat food. Given how good the food isnon a long range trip, that cant be the right thing to ingratiate (sic) yourself to the crew. I have read "a case of redbull" but couldnt tell uf that was...

    booked a trip ?? fish cleaning?? my own where??

    No. Since your fish would be dead by that point I find the suggestion quite off putting and unsportsmanlike. However the boats usually fish for boat limits in my experience so one need not stop fishing.

    The Chula Vista Marina would add a lot of time as it is in the south part of the bay away from the mouth. Plus he would be driving farther south on the freeway to get there. I belive sdboatworks has a storage yard thats only a half mile to the shelter island ramp.
