Since they were on the anchor and the seas were flat calm, why didnt you just go over there and ask them why they were gaffing the batrays (not stingrays)? You could have gotten some actual on the water information from folk who have been fishing for many years if not decades.

My "prespective" comes from the scientists themselves. I am specifically atalkinga bout the DDT that settled to tbe bottom and is covered with silt/sediment. If it is left alone, it is doing no harm.

My experience on LR boats is that fishermen who have already caught a nice fish... take a pass on their kite so that the next guy can have a shot at one. Many folk would choose to bypass their turn at the kite whether they had a nice fish or not simply because its not really fishing.
If YOU wear a mask and make sure that YOU stay 6' away from anybody and everybody on the boat, YOU are guaranteed to by the Liberal Media to NOT catch the china virus. So why the fuck do you care what anybody else is doing?

You just went from yellowtail to generic fishies.

Have you ever fished for and/or caught SoCal yellowtail?
If you have never caught a yellowtail, no amount of interviews would be able to get you even a small amount of understanding of why "recreational yellowtail fishing" needs to remain in place as is.

The time is NOW for she and your family to prep for the future. While she is in the Hospital is the best time to talk with her personal doctor and the...
Di Fi proposes 2 emergency exits...…. no placement, mind you. just 2 emergency exits
There are other proposals, also.
don't do what the docs are suggesting......and put me in your Will when you update it TOMORROW......
My "roadie" died from this in 1994. He didn't change his lifestyle as the Docs suggested either. 33 years old.
whining about other websites here on BD is soooooo 1990s.
I suppose now someone is going to chime in with an allcoast political board experience from 20 years ago...
If you let the crew know that you want to release the fish BEFORE the fish comes into gaff range, they will be better prepared to release the fish. If they say you cant release it, tell them you haven't decided on tip amount yet.....
Knowing before you even step on deck that you are only going...
Its 2 1/2 weeks until Thanksgiving.
Have you maybe thought about pulling out one package NOW to see how long it will take?
"but what will I do with the thawed piece of tuna, wils?"
ummmmm……. I could tell ya. but then i'd have to kill ya.
It sounds like your granddaughter had a great time.
It sounds like the Premier and the Mexi Navy had no problem with each other out there.
It sounds like "That guy" needs to re-think his phone app being more accurate than what the Mexi Navy has available.
I have only had one deckie do that. In my case he claimed that my drag was too tight and backed it off.....into free-spool. Have you ever seen what happens when a fresh triple digit Lupe YFT gets thrown into free-spool? He stayed away the rest of the trip.
I reflected my disapproval via the...
oh, sheeeesh. another washi-googan.
is it true y'all shower with WD-40 to keep from rusting? or just for the lubricating qualities?
welcome to BD! :finger::finger:
PS: newbies must post pics of gf, wife, or both.
How long do you think that fight would have lasted if the Skipper handed it off to a newbie? Sometimes just seeing a fish come over the rail gives others the motivation to keep fishing on a slow day....especially newbies.
Other times on a no-biter day when the skipper sees plenty of fish on the...

call the landing and find out..

Yes. I know that. The insurance adjuster knows that. The insurance adjuster also can see the same thing that I'm seeing and will be "talking shit" in his off-hours about this.
sheeesh. its Friday...………...
normally, this works.
the problem in this specific case is the size of the motor hanging on the transom: 90 HP.
the batteries need to be as far forward as possible.
OP: it looks like you have 2 batteries in the center console for motor & house. Then there are 2 batteries up front for the...
oh jeez. just fish on the side of the boat with no view of land.
Plus, as others have alluded to, you wont have to sit on your ass for at least 2 of those 8 days. Have you ever travelled 24++ hours uphill into 12'-15'+ seas? and then have the processor tell you that 80% of the fish are so beat...
GWs and makos have been doing this for over a dozen years. They have been taught by the shark diving boats to feed on gaffed tunas and yellowtails at the boat and out of the water - to get "action shots" for the divers in the cages.
The trip I was on, a grander mako chased a gaffed yellowtail...
because no one involved has specifically said that they that did go off. oft times, what is not said is huge.
the crewman who awoke to the fire said that he heard "something". Not "the smoke detectors woke me up".
It was a peacefully quiet night in a cove. If a smoke detector had gone off, it...
The timeline and type of smoke detectors that one of the crew said were recently installed fits this scenario:
Manually testing a smoke detector ONLY tells you that the battery is good
just as you didn't need to start chasing ambulances hours - not days - after this tragedy. is you house void of mirrors?
why are you staying away from the smoke detectors? You are working pro-bono to recover the boat insurance, but what about the eventual lawsuit against the manufacturer of the...
A PI attorney cant very well go after "pain and suffering" if there was no "pain and suffering". ;)
Lucky for the victims who died in their sleep that NOT ONE SMOKE DETECTOR was activated by a boat full of smoke.
for 13 months, these were coming off the assembly line. God only knows how long they were being sold for. or how many households they are installed in. the test...
Why didn't the "Home Depot-type" smoke detectors go off?
Pushing that little button to "test" them only tests the battery.
Isnt there one person/body still unaccounted for?
I'll let the forensics guys figure out HOW the fire started.
My concern is why NO smoke detectors went off.....
It sounds like the boats need to hire an electrical engineer to let them know exactly how many battery charges can be in use at any one time on each circuit. and to start installing those breakers that "break" at less AMPs than what they are rated for.
From what I have read in the various...
Thank you for the reply and the background info.
Moving past the battery itself, my main thought involved the circuitry inside being susceptible to the salty environment.
Does pushing the test button verify that the entire unit is operational as designed? or is it merely testing the battery...
I never thought about this much before, but I have this week:
Are Home Depot-type smokies certified for marine environment/ocean boat usage? I read an article where a crew member of the boat that just burned said that the smokies that were installed on the boat were "Home Depot-type".
Jorg (Armenian. not Mexican American. about 5' 2" not 6'+++) was my roadie. Masry was the Godfather of the SoCal Armenian community. and when the files that proved "lawyer wrong-doing" by "someone" went missing that Easter Week? Guess whos house they were at.... :puff:
nothing will change until there are criminal charges AND prosecution..... even if it winds up as "suspended sentence".
As long as insurance companies are paying off the families (blood money) and the lawyers (40%), nothing will change.
Insurance companies don't pay for criminal defense...
I've been on sportboats that have shut down their gensets --- overnight-class that also run up to 3 days --- granted, this has been over 6 years ago now. maybe for about 4 hours from midnite to an hour or so before sun-up. Its not that big a deal if you know your batteries are in good condition...
yes, I know
that's called "blood money"
I was going to ask "are you a child?" but then I see that youve been @BD for 12 years..... so I guess that you're just being overly emotional and rambling
you are being a cockholster to...
some boats access the escape hatch over a forward bunk. some of those boats load that bunk with misc sundries/supplies effectively limiting its accessibility.
some boats' escape hatch exit to original or added on storage closet at the bow. here again on some of those boats, supplies are found to...
No. Not all.
Here is your quoted question:
"Is there any type of accelerant on the boat?"
In that context, the diesel being referred to by the Owner is not an "accelerant". You and I both know that that detail would be cleared up in deposition by lawyers from one or both sides.
The only thing that will wake up the Sportfishing Owners is if criminal prosecutions start taking place. As long as there are folk whose only concerned is with getting paychecks via insurance, nothing will change.
This is truly a tragic event for the entire sport diving/sport fishing community.
Reports are that most if not all of the divers were down from the city of Santa Cruz diving community. 3 birthday parties. Rarely does my heart get sad these days. This is one of those sad days. :(
It sounds like you should have had the angler back off on the drag, allow the sword to sound, and then tie up the next 8 hours for everybody onboard trying to get it back to the boat to allow for PERFECTION to take place.
Let me guess.... 15# flouro with #1 hook, a tiny sardine, 80s-era...
are these your local boats that - at the extreme - run to Coronadoes/Catalina with 25+++ of your new best friends? If so, you can fish your braid all you want. While you're getting untangled due to "DONT CUT MY $$$$$ BRAID!" Me? I'll be the guy tieing a new hook on freshly...
I recall intentionally fishing right next to guys like you.
Ya cant catch attitude if you don't fish for attitude
I can imagine the look on your face when seeing a group of rockstars stepping on a LR boat …. each carrying a full set of "price tag still on" rods and...
And anyone who disagrees with me has a mental health issue. :D
That said, I was always the guy who said, "If you cant hit the other guy with the first clip, your sorry-ass aim deserves to die anyway."
the more you pull that dust cover off and then re-install it, the more un-cylindrical it becomes. now think about how water can get into your hub.....
as for heat vs cold.... the hub gets really hot when traveling on the freeway. being the really thick piece of metal that it is, it retains the...
Holy Change of Plans, BatMan/BatWoman/BatThey!
Why am I NOT confused? I'm not the biggest fan of Fishermans Processing, but....like.....WTF?
You intentionally had your fish frozen and then complained about not getting it as fresh as possible a week - instead of a few days - after it was flash...
that looks like a lot more fun than laying a broom with a winch on a rail all day….and night....to maybe catch one fish full of accumulated mercury. :D
That bow without a rail cracks me up. Good thing you have a low center of gravity.
sometimes when the fish "aren't biting", the skipper will have his crew toss a bait to see if its actually the fish that don't know what they are supposed to be doing. They will then also know if "hook and hand" will simply result in a busted off fish. This way, everybody had fresh filets to...
crew member caught a huge cow on 30#?
YET ANOTHER WHINE POST from a virginal BDer?

Are there any special considerations when using wood with a copper-based preservative?
Following the safety rules (below) regarding cleanup should be sufficient. However, these newer products are extremely corrosive to steel and aluminum.

I don't know about anyone else, but as of yesterday my New Posts are now about 80% classifieds. The blocking of them was fun while it lasted. But now? not so much.
do you have a spreadsheet of all of your current projected expenses? Maybe post that and we can then get a better feel for your actual quandry in regards your drop dead "$500 left for tip".
Just as there are enough threads on BD to accomplish a reasonably accurate expense sheet for your "10...
Don't just turn it on and listen. Put it in a bucket or put in the plug and fill the bilge until the pump is submerged. Then test it. All it takes is one leaf stuck on the bottom of the pump where you cant see it to ruin your day.
oh HELL no!. look how far they pulled that hook before literally ripping it out.
1. get a razor blade
2. cut your skin on top of the barb
3. rip that sumbitch out with your dikes while yelling FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK as much as you danged well please. :D

PewTrust is a big supporter of ending human presence on the water. that said, they are promoting that the current regs are what is needed to RESTORE fisheries.

If a kid.....or anyone.....is out-fishing me, i'm going to pay attention to what they are doing...and then thank them.
If a kid....or anyone.....is out-fishing me, i'm not going to hook and hand to that person. but that's just me.
The worst time in a diesels' life is when it is started cold. If you want it to have a long life, it should be warmed to running temperature before usage - like running to the store or pulling a boat out of the water. Since you will be making long journeys, go with the diesel.
let your wife...
How far will you be towing? If less than 20 miles a gasser in a truck that is rated for 12-13,000 towing will be fine. Or if you are only going to tow once or twice a month, a gasser is fine. If you are going to use it a lot and your regular commute is 20 miles each way. pay the extra money for...
….was presented during the CINMS/MLPA/MPA hearings. I believe the annual gross receipts were into the billions(?). Maybe someone else who was there can refresh my memory on that.
When Politicians are owned by enviros and commercials, good luck with anything "recreational" in it.
and sometimes....when the paying customers cant seem to catch their asses with both hands and are complaining about the captain and crew causing them not to be able to catch a fish....the captain will have the cook go out, make ONE cast, and immediately hook up.
scopolamine is given in heavy doses for days on end by nefarious people and various intel agencies to get people to do and say "things" that they would not normally do and/or say. Afterwards, they have no memory of what happened.
For some reason who was driving is a mystery.
CG safety inspection before leaving and upon returning for every OTHER boat on the dock every day of the week might loosen some mouths.
If there was a big swell, would the crew and passengers all have been able to sleep so soundly?
As I recall, running uphill is "kinda bumpy" and very difficult to sleep through. So lets blame Mother Nature for the lake-like conditions that allowed everyone onboard to get a good nights sleep. :D.
Frank is financially responsible for USCG-certified Captain failures because:
A) He is the Godfather
B) He holds the "paper" on many boats
C) He holds the "paper" on the leases
D) He has the deepest pockets for the lawyers to go after
You contributed your opinion.
You were given an opposing opinion.
and now you want to close it.
excellent. you're better than that.
This just keeps getting better........
You better stay off ANYTHING that floats and has water on the deck. and please turn in anything that you fish with that has...
They should just do what the financial wizard BDers had them do in regards fuel surcharges: jack the price MORE than what the surcharge would have been, declare that there will be NO FUEL SURCHARGE, and BD financial wizards will be happy once more.

"school shootings" include "domestic violence" in the parking lot, security guard dropping his gun and it going off, and drive-bys as they drive by the school.
"mass shootings" require 4 or more people get shot - not dead. Heck. That's a typical party in "da hood".
California requires trailer registration. Oregon doesn't.
If the trailer has an ID/VIN stamped on it, good to go @ DMV. If it doesn't, AAA wont touch it, off to the local CHP for inspection and ID/VIN plate, then back to DMV for registration and license plate & tags.
This 5-7-8 day trip has been talked about in the past:
Head out to the cortez & tanner banks. Then inside Clemente up to SBI & San Nic to the upper Islands. Then back down around Catalina. Actual time spent in each area would be pending conditions and fishies. Save on Mexi permits and local...
From what I understand, he will teach you how to use your boat and how to use/figure out all the equipment/electronics on it. Your new boat does come with a recent FF/GPS/Chart Plotter? Having someone teach you all the things that it can do will save you YEARS in figuring it out by...

can you max it out? fish it over its rating? yes you can.... probably for at least one fish. but what are you going to do in a hot bite and the drags heat up and start dying?
in other words, using 40# line on a 30# reel is perfectly fine.....until you think you can set the...

If you have a 21', don't move up to a 23'. go directly to the 25'.
with your experience and respect for mother nature, any size would be safe. A rookie can sink a 30'er. and rogue waves have been known to humble even the most experienced of skippers.
hooks are cheap. break them off and you were going to cut off 5' of line and re-tie anyway. right?
Then use your dikes and cut a couple of gill rakers for the bleed out.
gaff shots this early in the season are sketchy at best...especially on a hot fish Offer a fiver for a head shot. it works. ;)
