    How Many is Too Many?

    Sounds about right, I would do the same. Even tough we all know only one or two are really gonna get used. The real question is..... Do you bring the whole 40 pound tackle box or only a couple bags of hooks, a couple weights and the only 2 jigs You know You will actually Fish with?

    Tuefin Blunas are Gay as Fuck in January!!!!! THUNDERBIRD 1.5 report

    Awesome trip, thanks for the post. How long was the trip 1 day or 1.5? So how much did you pay, cost of the trip? That older guy that caught all the fish is a pro, he is always on Daveys boats. Wish I had a life like that.

    Two incredibly aggressive sea lions and bug report

    I have had the same thing happen to me in my kayak in long beach. I would take 4 strokes with my paddle and then use it to defend myself. Scared the shit outta me.

    California Scorpionfish Fishery to Close Nov. 15 2014

    I'm not too surprised, worked on sporties for a while and have seen the onslaught on sculpin the past number of years when fishing sucked for everything else. At least they aren't closing it down while rockfish are closed.

    Pinhead in JP

    I always get in the jp to pay for cleaning and galley if I win and the rest goes to the crew. But it drives me crazy how serious people get into it. People let it ruin their trip even if it was an epic limit style, leave em biting trip. I'm not just talking customers here, I've seen crews get...

    The business of running a fishing boat.

    What's the matter with brining ur own food on the boat? I don't wanna be another fat f*ck at the rail. Not usually many decent options on a 1 - 2 day trip. As for the question. The galley, fish cleaning, and tips can be done a number of different ways on every single boat and should not have...
