    Let the lobster wars begin

    Wow…that Daily Breeze article was an amazing science fiction read! Thanks Blackfish! This is my opinion not the opinion of the LAC. First…a reality check… The following info is from a conference call on October 10th with 2 DFW reps and an enforcement rep along with the 3 recreational chairs...

    Redondo/King Harbor Yellowtail,Bonita, and Lobster

    I don't know where Danny got the info about the YT and Bones in the Harbor...I agree with fishkilr "that's FantasyLand"...All I've caught were a few small Bonito and it was definitely not WFO. As a matter of fact, Alby/Fishkilr and I trolled the harbor on Tuesday and we didn't get bit. I was out...

    HOOP NET SETUP QUESTION?

    Too thin for me...I like the Promar yellow 3/8" hollow or Sampson's 9mm solid polytron rope. It depends on the rope...find one with very little memory and doesn't soak up water. If you're comfortable pulling with the 1/4" rope that's all that really matters. I've been using the Ace Line Hauler...

    Scotty Power Puller and the Hobie PA

    I received the Scotty Swivel Mount yesterday and it made for a perfect clean install of the Scotty Power Puller. When the puller is not being used, your left with only this small plastic base on the yak. It seems to be low enough to be out of the way when standing or sitting. The Swivel mount...

    Why wait till Lobster season?

    IMHO Bonito is great table fare...of all the Tuna family it seems to spoil the quickest...I spike the head of the fish to keep it from thrashing and tenderizing the meat...then I pull a few gills to bleed it...once it's bled out in the bait tank I put it on ice. If you don't care for this fish...

    I can't really say yet Mike...I've only used it the one time yesterday, lifting three nets from the Hobie. It is less expensive.
