    That color was ORANGE Billy, and it might look like RED with blood shot eyes? I don't need any attention Billy, nor am I angry and I'm certainly not very angry. I take exception with you saying it's a braggers board. How can a newbie brag? I help 9 out of 10 people that ask for help and you...

    3 is so many times? I don't believe you Billy! When you don't post every trip you fell into your own categorization you stated in another post just below. I disagree Billy! Skunked or non-double/triple/quadruple limits is all the same to a bragger. There's plenty of give and take on Bloody...

    Skunked twice

    Most of the lobsters, at least the ones I talk to, are out in deeper water for the moment. It's also time for most lobsters to spawn/reproduce. This is one reason lobsters head to deeper water. Another reason is snotty weather, where the lobsters say "F this!" and head deeper instead of being...

    Nice haul/mess of lobsters Chris! With all the green rope hanging there, 8 foot diameter, 20-25 loops, you guys must be good 160-200 feet.

    Years ago did some testing of the concept. Nothing was conclusive good or bad, there were benefits and issues. As many have stated lobster will find the bait by smell/scent and other means. You have to put your nets in the correct spot each night, which is a bigger nut you need to crack first...

    Is there a law against cooking Cowcod, or BSB for that matter? I think it's a possession factor, 99%, and I get that. I guess the real question you would ask is how does one obtain these fish legally? Where is that CLUB a Seal video? I need to find it . . . that'll keepya busy for awhile!!

    As long as we're asking I'll take a sweatshirt, with hoodie, pullover, a somewhat raised graphic design, fleece inside, hand warmer in pockets, and a sock full of quarters.

    Tips for services

    A long time ago when I rode these (whatever you wanna call'em boats) people were tipped on their service, courtesy, politeness, thoroughness, attitude (good or bad depending on the SITCH at that exact moment), and their honesty. I remember a trip on the (boat shall remain nameless) and they...

    Southern California Halibut Hunting (VIDEO)

    I found that to be . . . quite an interesting video Ben. Hi. The effort put forth to create and share it, good stuff indeed! As a fisherman and no longer diving much, if at all, I'm jealous somewhat. At this point in life I'd wanted to stay above the water line to catch my fish. I've viewed...

    Catalina MLPA Closures?

    That last part is funny. It might have began here for you, but in the big picture unhuhh. Breathe deep! Ever hear the story about Adam and Eve catching the first Trout? :rofl: San Nicholas Island will be the place to be in 2012, even at 65 miles from where I launch.

    mlpa closures

    Someone should write this [email protected]&()[email protected]#&() a ticket! I can't even get my boat into get bait at the In-Seine Bait dock! Just another case of money talking, can't even offload the damn squid. My thoughts on this below.

    The 1/2 off deal

    For what it's worth Dave, you keep that attitude, and you will continue to be successful whether the boat is loaded with fish at the end of the day or not. Best of luck in 2012, and it will be challenging with all the new closures . . for all of us!

    Blazing fast limits ever

    Another part of the the hooping cycle is knowing when they shut down = stop walking. I've stopped counting how many nights with 13 legals and 2 guys because I shut it down immediately based on events or lack of events. Ya gotta know when to hold'em and know when to fold'em, works in poker too

    Blazing fast limits ever

    Agreed, and all I'm saying is you do 3 trips at Catalina in that ripping uphill current at 75 - 90 feet and after that it will come naturally for 3 sets on your next trip. IMO. After 3 sets it's time to tag someone else in at that depth! As the season moves on make sure you know where the...

    Blazing fast limits ever

    Pulling at 80-90 feet is not big deal for 10 nets. The minute you have to pull multiple sets at that depth, BY HAND, I agree completely. Please tell me you did not have a machine doing the work for you? Congratulations, great job!

    NADA DE TO Noache

    What a shame bro. If my Son was not arriving from Texas that night I might hijack your boat, I mean volunteer my services for the night. Just before high tide, slack tide, and the outgoing tide is MY favorite time to score legal Lobsters. Others like 180 degrees opposite, and that works for...

    Regardless of the type of boat common sense is not common enough, along with courtesy, tact, presentation, !#@(^#!*(@^ I could go on forever. BUMMER for the boy, he'll keep that event with him for awhile and hopefully he'll be able to shed it from his memory one-day.

    Found as many as 5 nets before at night, plus my own 10 (2 or more people onboard). Everything found goes on top of the cabin strapped down.

    As others stated, learn from your mistake(s) and don't let it happen again. I can think of 3 ways to get in without paying. To me it's kinda like reading the DFG REGS each year, and keepin' up with the changes handed down. Wanna know what the real crime here is? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl...
