    Catalina Fishing / Camping trip, 8/14-8/16 Yellowtail

    Thanks. 2 Harbors is easy to unload, but hard to hike. These boat-in sites are hard to unload (using multiple dinghy trips), but no hike, of course. Trade-offs. Normal ground tackle. It's nice and sandy there, anchoring in only 15-20'. Definitely need a stern anchor as there are no...

    Well....Rippers is no secret, it was definitely more crowded than I would have liked. There were some jackhole kids on kayaks that were camped in the wrong spot one night (our spot) b/c they had their spots mixed up. We let them stay...rather than being dicks and make them move.

    Attn: Jumbo Guys!

    Similar experience yesterday. Probably more paddies than I've ever seen on the ride home to LB. I think the water is too warm in the San Pedro channel to consistently hold any good yellows (they like 62-72 degrees), and it's a little too far north to hold dodos right now. I think they are...

    How long are the fish going to be here?

    It's a good question, though one without an exact answer. My guess would be as long as we have pockets of 70+ deg. clean blue water, they will be around.

    Question:plz help lures for catalina bass

    For crankbaits, any small Rapalas should work OK, even freshwater ones. IF you can keep away from snags, you'll probably catch a lot of small (11.5") Calicos, small cuda, and maybe even some small bones. Nearshore, small swimbaits might be a better choice overall.

    Inside Breakwall 04/30

    Nice bassin on the inside. And great job on the CPR. The fish on the inside are usually about 1/2 the size of the outside fish. So that must mean the outer wall is full of 10 lbers. =)

    Good point rodngun. That is depressing though. Well look at the bright side, at least we can have 7 servings of jacksmelt and 2 of shovelnose...lol. BTW, who eats that crap anyway?
  408. PacificPredator

    @the LBC WALL 4-26-11

    Was going to fish the wall tomorrow, but maybe not much left out there... Seriously though, remember guys....it takes 6 years for a calico to reach a lousy 12". I personally think there should be a slot limit and/or a 5 fish limit. 10 (or 7) fish is too much for one angler to take in a day...

    Newbie Advice (with boat)

    Fishtraps or Big Hammers, colors of your choice, on 3/4-1-1/2 oz matched leadheads outside kelpline (or in pockets). If you don't lose a few baits then you're not fishing hard enough/close enough to structure/kelp.

    Yep. Fun to pull on, but why bother trying to figure out how to eat those things when there are so many better tasting critters around! Besides, if sand bass are on the 'do not consume list' because they're bottom dwelling, do you think that mud marlin should be on that list too? :shithappens:

    Hi Ron. No sand bass at all. Fished the Queen's gate entrance a little and did not see any. Strange, for me it's usually about a 60/40 (calico to SB) mix at the wall. The sandies must be getting together in schools out deeper...getting ready for the spawn?

  461. PacificPredator

    The real reason why fishing has sucked lately...

    No, no I don't really believe in that stuff, it's just an excuse for most people. I'm just bored and messing around. The way I heard it, the whole thing about bananas started in the old days when they overloaded boats from down south with bananas and a lot of them sunk on the way up here...
  462. PacificPredator

    The real reason why fishing has sucked lately...

    I discovered the reason why fishing has sucked lately: I keep a crate of snacks in the cuddy on the boat, and I didn't realize that these were in there. Damnit! Dried bananas apparently have as much bad juju as fresh ones - or maybe it's even more concentrated? Anyway, now that these are...

    found the sand dab kingdom

    No, you need about 1 per taco. You cut the head off and the guts, dip in egg, batter them, and fry em up. 1 average fish has enough meat for about 1 taco after you pick the bones out.
  510. PacificPredator

    found the sand dab kingdom

    Don't think you'll get them in anything less than about 300 ft. MAYBE 250. I could be wrong though. All I know is they are thicker than flies on shit around 300 ft out by the double rig area. When we drifted into about 280, the bite almost stopped.
  511. PacificPredator

    What color spectra do you use?

    White is nice for visibility...just use a good long fluoro leader and the fish don't care what color it is.

    Really? Are you allowed to use them for bait? If so, I agree, they would be perfect! Thanks.

    Thanks Jonathan. Not a whole lot of Shammies here on the West Coast, so I jumped on this one when I found it.

    Fishing the southeast shelf out of Long Beach 2/5/11

    Pretty simple: Scale them with a butter knife. Then dip each one in egg for a few seconds. Then coat with crumbs...I use crushed up bbq potato chips and ritz crackers (crushed super fine). Zatarains cajun mix works well too. I use about an inch of peanut oil in a skillet and I use the side...

    Fishing the southeast shelf out of Long Beach 2/5/11

    The Plan: Took 2 buddies and my sons out in search of fillets...small fillets (sand dabs). Since Izor's has been slow lately, and inshore is no good, figured we would hit the double rig area for some sand dabbing. Late start around 07:00 from Davies. Chilly at first but beautiful flat seas, no...

    Oh, I just said that because the post was from San Diego. I didn't notice you were from up north. You guys can get lings all year up there? Lucky you... Good luck out there.

    Am I missing something here? You can't possess a ling (dead or alive) right now, this time of year, right???

    LONG BEACH PRODUCES ON THE STRUCTURE 1-31-11

    Do you guys realize it takes 5 to 6 years for a Sandie just to reach the minimum 12" length !? IMO they should reduce the limit to 5 per day. I think that would take a lot of pressure off the fishery. F*CK the MLPA and the F*CKS who came up with such a F*CKED idea!!!! Conservation, not...

    Thanks Ron- we launched about 0600. I was so busy getting things going that I didn't pay much attention to who else was around...it can be a little hectic/stressful with 3 junior deckhands. Darn! I wish I would have been paying attention, it would've been nice to have met you. I've been...

    Nice, how does it handle the chop? Perfect for the wall, inside, but would be a little nervous about the outside if there's any swell. Good job getting the son out!

    Catalina East End report - 1/23/11

    So of course I knew of the small craft advisory Sunday, but it was supposed to be from Pt. Magu to Santa Monica. LBC / Catalina was supposed to be OK. Regardless, started out mindful of the wind. We (2 bro-in laws, sons, and nephew) got squid around 06:30 from LBBC and it was nice and calm up...

    Squid pollution

    I know Catalina has squid pollution going on right now. When so much squid is around (fresh dead piled on the bottom, and live swimming around in broad daylight), does it make sense to offer up sardines to give the fish some 'variation' in their diet?

    LA Times fish report from January, 7 1988.

    The sandie and calico limits should be 5 per person/day and maybe even with a slot of 12-20" only. Who the hell needs 10 bass per day anyway? It's crazy. Think about it, it takes SIX years for a calico to reach 12" !
