    SoCal deck hand work

    Absolutely! Another great piece of advice. Know your regs. Probably one of the most important things to know. I had a deckhand filet a halibut and he cut into 4 filets. Regs say that it has to be 2 filets attached by 2" of skin, if I'm not mistaken. Anyway, passenger walked off the boat with it...

    Rod pairing For Saltist 20P

    Me personally, I have an older silver Saltist 20 and I love it on my Calstar 800XL. I have it spooled with 65 pound spectra and fish a 20 pound topshot. Pretty rad little set up. I only use it as a bait stick on smaller model fish, up to 40 pounds. Whatever rod you pick, I'm sure you'll at least...

    SoCal deck hand work

    Dude, you'll be broke. Coming from the Bay Area I would venture to guess that you make a decent amount of money. Working on boats is the total opposite. You can make some decent scratch and it's great being on the water, but if your'e trying to make a living, it's pretty tough. I was in the...

    Knot Question -- What's this knot called, and what is its breaking strength (if known)

    A pic of the finished knot might help a little better than a description.

    Cousins f530 anf f690j differences...

    I had both of these rods, but Calstar and this is a pretty spot on description. Ended up getting rid of the 690j because I felt they were a very similar rod. That and the fact that I had the 530t custom wrapped while the 690j was factory wrapped.

    224 Valkyrie????

    I don't, but everything I read about them when I was looking for a barrel for my AR sounds pretty awesome. I don't reload and I live in small town Wyoming, so I think finding ammo might prove challenging.

    Beware Barnes Vortx ammo!

    That Core-Lokt stuff is fucking garbage!!! I bought a couple oxes a few years ago, 1 for each .30-06, and I can't remeber how many misfires I had. I thought it was the rifle, but it did the same thing in either. I don't reload, so I'm not going that way, but I got a box of the standard...

    bass rod for tuna?

    I'll add my 2 cents. Sometimes the fish are up and down, yeah the lighter string gets bit more often, but when the whole boat is waiting for 1 guy to get his fish up and the whole is moving at a good clip the rest of the boat usually isn't too happy about it. I am not a big fan of using really...

    Sea Adventure II on the rocks?

    There are these things called the Coronado Islands that look just like big rocks. It's unfortunate that this happened, and no, I would not want to be in the 2nd's shoe right now. Chuck can have a little bit of a temper at times.

    Ringed hook VS Hook tied with perfection loop

    What's up, Eric? It was me, Justin doesn't know how to tie it. Either that, or he just didn't. Yeah, the loop isn't very strong, but you can still catch fish with it. Have caught plenty of fish, up to 60 YFT on it. I still use it and I know it isn't that strong.

    Ringed hook VS Hook tied with perfection loop

    The perfection loop, baldy knot, live bait knot, whatever you call it is pretty much the only knot I use for live bait and plastics. I like it, it's easy to tie and you get great action on your baits. The problem with that knot is that it is not very strong. I think it tests out at around 75%, I...

    What Fins

    Another vote for the Blackteams. I have a pretty wide foot and they fit me great. The only other fin I have tried on were the Esclapez open heel and they were fine until I got the closed heel. That is another thing, go with the closed heel if you can. They seem to move you better than the open...

    Tire pressure question

    I have always filled it to what the tire says. Sometimes it will say inflate to this much when carrying a load or something. Also, tire pressure increases when the tires get hot, i.e., when driving the tire heats up and the pressure rises. Maybe that is why they only filled to 35psi. Just a thought.

    bait dies in 3-4 hours??

    Look at the pic in your signature and avatar. See the cut out piece of the boat in the corner? Those are scuppers. They are there to let water and whatnot out,off of the boat. If you have a small boat, you probably don't have any scuppers.
  527. CaptainLeo

    Albie Setup?

    If you want simple without breaking the bank, I would either go Calstar 870 with a Penn 500 or 3/0 or a Calstar 6480 with a Penn 3/0. Spool either of those with 30 pound and you are golden. I am saying Calstar just because I like them. Some people will say Seeker or whatever, I am just using...
  528. CaptainLeo

    bait dies in 3-4 hours??

    I would probably try to get your intake water somewhere other than a "scupper". Good chance you are getting a lot of cavitation and too many air bubbles in the water. That will kill the bait pretty good. Next time you fill up the bait tank, check to see if you get a lot of bubbles or air in the...

    Coronados 6/3

    Went to the Coronados today mainly to spearfish, but ended up fishing quite a bit. Started at the middle grounds, my buddy got a nice yellow 2 minutes into the slow troll on a sardine. Other buddy gets bit and loses it. I am next with a 12 pounder, 30 seconds after I get it in, I am on again...

    Yesterday I was the tree

    Cool. I worked a few trip for him a long time ago. I used to work on the Capt John boats in 98 and 99. I will be up in a couple of weeks and probably fish with Dennis for a day.

    Hey, Pence. Is that Dennis on the New Captain Pete you are talking about?

    5/21 Moo Moo out of San Diego

    Deadheads fish for free. They think because they know the crew, they have carte blanche and can do whatever they want. It gives the crew a bad rep for letting these people on the boats. If a guy is a friend of the crew and fishes for free, great. He should probably help out a little bit, hand...

    What is the BEST fillet knife?

    16-18 inches, that thing is a machete. Forschners are great knives, but like previously stated, are a little on the pricey side. You can get a Dester-Russel for a little bit cheaper. Go to a smaller store that has a butcher and maybe they can order one for you. Back when I used to buy knives, I...

    New to the sea

    1. I like a Calstar 870, it is rated 15-40 lb. test, with a either a Jigmaster 500 or Senator 3/0 with 30 lb. for an all around rod, some people will probably disagree. I am partial to the glass rods instead of graphite, personal preference. 2. After paying for fish cleaning, some people say...

    Couple dive at LJ

    Good report. Yesterday when I was coming home from Del Mar, the water in Carlsbad looked super clean. I am going to a beach free dive in a while to see if I can shoot something today.

    newb Q's

    I am new to spearfishing as well, but what I have heard from a lot of people is to stay away from the JBLs. It will cost quite a bit to upgrade and they have a very loud trigger mechanism. The more you load them up, the harder the trigger pull will. I have a little JBL and with two bands, it is...

    Ask her if she ever had her asshole licked by a fat man in an overcoat, that usually works. If not, by her lunch.

    wire leader trap rig for hali's

    I think you are thinking of a perfection loop knot, that is what I use. I tie the treble with a perfection loop and then snell a live bait hook on. The length between the two hooks deends on the size of the bait. You wouldn't want to put the hooks six inches apart for a four in sardine and vice...

    Dealiest Catch, Blakes a punk

    When Phil and Blake were talking, Phil was on a sat phone and Blake was on a 2 meter radio. The radio that they kept showing on channel 9 was a standerd VHF radio, not a 2 meter.

    International Star or Top Gun 80

    I have not been on the Int'l Star, so I have no opinion on it. But I have been on a few trips on the Top Gun 80. It is a fast boat and very comfortable. Great galley and heads with showers. Plenty of bait and plenty of deck space. They work to get fish on that boat. Hope it helps.

    Futureweapons TONIGHT!

    It will be on again next Monday. Unfortunately, they didn't get any of us boat guys in any of the shots. Oh well. It was still a good showing of the vehicle and what it can do.

    Where are some good places in SD to get FISH TATTOOS??

    Here are some pics I took a few minutes ago, I think I need some lotion. I actually the first part of the outline done in Hawaii and the two in front here in O'side by a guy that should have never picked up a tattoo machine. He must have doctored up his portfolio. All of the colored was...
