    You really can’t pick your school. What do you consider quality? Do you want the skipper to pull off school of 60 to 80 pounders to try for 100 to 150 pounders. I think the yft are incidental. Most of the BFT are quality in my opinion. There are a few 25 pounders out there but most are over 50...

    Cabo San Lucas in August

    I have a charter with Renegade Mike in October. He was recommended by several Bloodydeckers. However I did get the last day available during my week stay.

    SEA SHEPHERD LEAVES THE SEA OF CORTEZ

    I'm staying off the water until they dock. Those guys are dangerous at sea. And I'm Japanese so they'll go after me for sure.

    Talica Rental?

    Buy a Penn Fathom lever drag, a lot cheaper to go with the cheap boat.

    Offshore Is this normal? 6 hours tied to the bait dock to make it a 2.5 day trip.

    If that's the biggest problem I have, it was a great trip. I'm not gonna let little things like that ruin my trip. It's normal.

    Going Fishing in Cabo

    I found the prices on Cruisers to be about the same and fair. I'm trying to contact Renegade Mike but no success via email yet. I'm not opposed to Pangas. I've owned two. I caught 500 plus Albacore on one of them. However, I don't think they have bathrooms and my girl is going with me. A friend...

    Going Fishing in Cabo

    I'll take either a panga or cruiser but needs to be reasonable.

    The Excel didn't report the whole trip after the first day. They are already back and someone reported on this site but still not on the website.

    Risky Business

    I fished 80 lb. at Clarion and caught a 314 lb. YFT. I used no spectra, a 200 lb. monofilament leader, j hook and a single speed reel. It was kinda hard to turn the handle. That's the way it was done in the 80's. I'm sure the hook to land ratio has gone up with improved rigging.

    last trip of the year = 55 yellow tail

    I believe it's 5 fish per species per day. They fished for 3 days. 4 people. 4x5x3 equals 60. I think they were ok.

    Chief new owner ship

    I thought the Old Glory has new ownership. I thought Joe sold it. Heard some rumors when they were taking it to Tanner for the big Bluefin. Maybe a new captain not sure.

    "That Guy" roll call

    I don't have a problem with marking his tags with felt pens or somebody adding tie wraps on the tails. But I do not like that he only sorts his own fish.

    "That Guy" roll call

    I sold my boat to a first time boat owner. Here are some of his stories. 1) Ran out of gas on Rosecrans several times.. Fuel gauge didn't work on truck. 2) Forgot to bring an anchor and had engine problems. He had to hold onto a kelp stringer to keep from drifting ashore. 3) Had bearing heat up...

    Baja in May

    Cabo Pulmo used to be a great place to surf fish. Jack Crevelle would boil up every morning at sunrise. There were also some big Cabrilla around the rocks. I lift poled a nice Chino Mero there too. One time a Snook beached itself chasing bait. I miss that place.

    The last response sucks. Go find your own spots with your meter or fish dope.

    ALBACORE POOL

    Remember when a girl caught an albacore off Clarion Island then went missing on the way to Cabo. I also remember when they were catching Albacore off Cabo and the Mexican fisherman had never seen one.

    Mexico Island Closers

    Only Franks boats will be able to fish Cedros.:banned: lol. I know they used to run their own skiffs when whale watching and now they use Mexican pangas. It could a similar situation where they have to charter the pangas. Times are changing.

    How many Rods do you need?

    It would be like golfing with one club.You need different line classes for different situations. It also depends on how finicky the fish are.

    What product to use as a Rub Rail on Panga?

    I agree with the Taco Marine rub rails. I like the stainless steel hollow back rub rail. It is 3/4 " wide.
