    Ever saw this before?

    Headed out to La Jolla this morning and saw some good meter marks in about 100 feet of water. Dropped down some squid on a double dropper loop rig for nothing but nibbles.

We'll be buddy boating incase something goes wrong with his new used boat. I was looking up what fish we can keep if we do catch any. A little confusing...

    Spectra question

    I have an Avet JX on a Graphite USA 8'6" pole rated 20-40lbs & 1-5 oz. Currently it is spooled with 30lb mono and I was thinking of replacing it with about 350 yards of 65lb Spectra for jigging bottom dwellers off La Jolla. I have Sectra on my light and medium spinning rigs and I'm not all...

    Got bait?

    I've been checking the EB web site every day now and no signs of them having chovies. Anyone seen any out there off shore? The last time I talked to the bait man he said their bait boat cannot find any chovies off shore, just deans. They think the bonies and berries chased the chovies out...

    Back up radio

    Christmas is coming and I would like to put a back up handheld VFH radio on it for my boat. Which is a good one for around $100.00-150.00 or so? And who has the best prices? Santa needs to know. Thanks

    Paintball Gun

    Can anyone reccomend and decent paintball gun for my Christmas list and where to get it? I've had it with sea dawgs and I can't hit shit with the wrist rocket. I'd like something medium priced (for my wife, Santa, to buy) so I can get the rest of my fishing gear for Chirstmas. I don't need a...

    Nov 19

    Headed out of Mission Bay at 0630 this morning for the kelp beds south of OB pier. Slight wind, slight swells but a good ride at 28mph. Trollers out, mini jet heads, but no takers so I tossed in a scrambled egg iron that caught come bonies last week. Nothing except a few macs that were...

    Rock crabs

    Went hooping with Junior aka Fishnbuddy on Friday and picked up some nice crabs along with 9 bugs. I thought I'd try the crabs but never had them before. How do you guys cook them and what parts do you eat? Those claws look good but is there anything inside and are the legs worth the effort...

    Anyone get shot?

    Friday, fishnbuddy and I were fishing Mission Bay when we heard some radio conversation from a war ship to some other boat warning them to change their direction. No response from the unknown vessel. A few seconds later the warning was broadcasted again with the additional warning "change...

    Hooping lights

    I've been hooping with my good friend Junior (fishnbuddy) and we've gone through some of the flashing light used in the jugs. WalMart no longer carries them and I could not find them anywhere. Glow sticks are $1.89 each at the Depot and that's a lot to spend for 10 hoops every week. I found...

    Red worm fishing

    Went out solo Sunday in Mission Bay and had a good time catching bass and halibuts but all just short of legal size except the one butt that broke off at the boat. At the end of the day I give my left over chovies and deans to whoever looks like they could use some especially if they have kids...

    Truck thefts

    Not sure if this is the right place to post. My neighbor called 2 days ago to tell me his truck was stolen from Dana Landing. The thieves unhooked his trailer, left it, then took his 4X4 diesel dually. Sombody called him later in the day and told him they found some papers belonging to him...

    Wash down pump reccomendation

    My Shurflo Pro Blaster wash down pump quit. I was going to buy another one of the same brand but after reading the poor reviews of them on the West Marine web site I think I might want to try another brand. Anyone have any other brand they have used and are happy with and where can I purchase...

    Offshore Good day fishing

    Talked my Marine buddies Junior (Fishnbuddy) and Ricky into taking a day off from protecting our country to go fishing on Thursday. Launched out of South Shores around 0545 in the Innocent Bystander Sea Pro 206CC. Got half way to EB and noticed the bait pump not working. The boys got down to...

    Charging batteries

    In my Sea Pro 206CC I have a two battery system set up with a selector switch so I can run on battery #1 or #2 or both together. When I charge them up before going out I charge them one at a time with the selector switch set to the off position. Is it possible to charge them both at the same...

    Offshore Passport required?

    I was talking to a friend who stated you are not required to have a passport with you when returning from fishing in Mexican waters as long as you have not stopped at any ports in that country. Here is the section he quoted. I think it might be wise to have it in case you are forced into port...

    Corvina size limit

    Can anyone tell me what the legal size limit is for Shortfin Corvina and the number of fish you can keep. I've look in the DFG reg book and can't find anything regarding Corvina. Thanks
  111. I


    Can anyone tell me if Corvina is good to eat? We have caught several along with WSB in Mission Bay and released them because we were not sure what they were. I now can tell the difference between a WSB and a Corvina and might want to try one but I don't recall seeing any posts about them. Are...

    What a lucky guy I am. Got to take 2 Marines out fishing Saturday and 2 more Sunday. Started out Sat. with Joe (JoeDirt) and his buddy Ricky from Camp Pendleton. Joe and Junior (Fishnbuddy) have been coaching me for the past 6 months and Junior couldn't go. Anyway we were going to the...

    Newly weds

    Billy Bob and Mary Sue checked into the honeymoon cabin at Skeeter Lake. A short time later the manager spots Billy Bob heading down to the lake with a fishing pole and a can of bait in hand and does't see him return until after dark. At 0500 the next morning he see BB heading to the lake...

    Trailer side rail

    I need to re-carpet the side rails on my trailer. Where is a good place to buy the carpeting? Also do I use 1/2" regular staples in my staple gun or something else to fasten the carpet to the boards? And is there anything else I should know before doing this. I'm pretty sure the wood is OK...

    Need Lingcod information

    Hi guys, I've never fished for Lilngs before and was wondering what is the best rig and bait for them. Does tide movement affect them and what time of day is best and at what depth? I have some frozen squid, jigs, irons and everything else except for some of Ed's lures. I sent him several...

    Bouy readings

    I've been trying to figure out what to look for when checking the bouy readings. How can I tell if the ocean is calm enough to venture out in. Is it the swell height to seconds or wind wave heights or what. What numbers are good for a 20' CC boat at the Coronado Islands. Most of the time...

    Tax question

    Just got my 2008 tax assessment notice for my boat. Do they assess the boat only or do they include the motor and trailer also? The notice states that if I disagree with the assessment, and I do, to send in some proof of the value other than what they claim. You can do this with for sale ads...

    Cheaper gas

    For those who don't belong to Costco they have a good deal going on. If you get an Amnerican Express card through Costco you get a refund on your total years purchase using the card. They are now offering 3% back on gas. So that equals to 9 cents off per gallon at the $3.00 per gallon price...

    Brake question

    I had to replace the actuator valve on my trailer because it was leaking where the line exited. Everything went well. I bleed the farthest wheel cylender first and expelled the air out of the line. When I tried to bleed the other cylinder I could not get the bleeder nut to turn and didn't...

    Well I bent the prop on my Merc Verado 150 last night and now I have to find a new one. Can anyone tell me a good place to get one. The one it is a Merc Mirige 17P Stainless Steel. What should I look for in a replacement. My boat is a Sea Pro 206CC. I would like to get one locally so I can...

    GPS for Christmas

    Got a new hand held Garmin GPSMAP76Cx for Christmas along with a BlueChart CD. I asked Santa for a just a basic backup GPS for the boat because I have one on the dash. This one is better then the one in the boat and I think it's kinda overkill for a back up. I'm thinking of returning it and...

    Opinions needed

    Hey guys, it's time to make out the Christmas wish list. Can anyone give me any recomendations on these two out riggers. I'm looking at E-Z Out-Rodder and Flat Line Boom. Does anyone have either of these and how do you like them or are there any others I should consider? I'll be using them...

    Fishing on Sunday

    I'm thinking about going out to the 9 mile bank or the 182 this Sunday but the weather report is calling for strong Santa Anna winds. Have any of you guys gone out in the off shore wind conditions. Will the Santa Anna's reach out into the ocean. I live inland (Poway) on a mountain and they...

    Has anyone tried the Flatline Boom outriggers? I saw them advertised in a magazine and they look like they might work for my boat. I seem to get a lot of tangles when I'm trolling 3-4 lines and would like to spread the lines farther apart. Thanks
