LA/OC overnight reports had been slow for a week or so. The weather forecast for Friday was looking better than the previous week so I figured this time of year with good weather the fishing had a good chance of improving. Boarded the Amigo Thursday night. Boat’s open party load is 18...
First off I wanted to say thank you to everyone that post their fishing reports. There are some guys on here that do an exceptional job and I really appreciate all the information. My writing skills suck but I’ll try my best to return the favor from all the helpful members.
Boarded the SD 5/23...
I’m curious on if y’all build your grips/handles or reel seats differently to accommodate wider frames reels? I’ve got a fathom 30ld that just doesn’t feel balanced on my rods. Post pics if you got them please!
Looking forward to my trip on the San Diego next week. Has anyone been out fishing with them this year? I’m just looking for some tips or reports of what’s going on down there. Any specific yo yo jigs working better than others? Any tips on fishing spring time yellows at the Coronado’s would be...
What hard baits are y’all using and species targeted? Brand, size, floating or sinking, colors, stock or replacement hooks? Also if you want to add the rod, reel and line used I’d love to hear all about it!
I’ve got a tranx 500pg loaded to the brim with 80lb maxquatro. It’s in great condition. I’ve only used it once. Willing to trade for a small Talica 2 speed. Price is $350. Pick up only in either Huntington Beach or Long Beach.
I was wondering if anyone uses a 9’ bait stick for 40lb to get a little extra distance on their cast for these picky BFT bites? If so what rods do you use? I’m aware that fighting fish with longer rods isn’t the easiest task but sometimes you gotta do whatever it takes to get a bite. Last...
She's a 1979 mako 20 powered by a 2004 Yamaha 150 four stroke. The engine has very little use with only about 225 hours. With a 44 gallon fuel tank her range is comfortably over 120 miles, more than enough to fish tuna in the past few years. It's equipped with a furuno Fathometer, 2 vhf radios...
As the title says I'm looking for cheap but secure storage. I'll be out of the country for the next 6 months+ so I'd like to move the boat and possibly a pickup truck out of the high rent district here in Huntington Beach. The overall length of the trailer to the prop is roughly 25'. The pickup...
Fished out of Oceanside on Friday. Got a scoop of mackerel and sardine mix (mackerel killed most of the sardines) from the receiver. My plans were to head towards to 289. Got to 33*00/118*00 area. Stopped to fish a paddy. Plenty of boats in the area. There was lots of life around, birds and...
I'm the new owner of a 20' mako purchased from a fellow BD'er. I couldn't have asked for a better guy to buy a boat from. Thank you so much Mike. The boat ran great both days I fished. So now on to the report... We fished the BFT grounds Thursday and Friday. We saw plenty of fish but couldn't...
I'm hoping the sea trial will go well this weekend and I'll be a boat owner. I don't have room for a boat at my house, so does anyone have suggestions on boat storage in my area? Haven't measured the total length yet but would assume close to 25'. Any help would be much appreciated.
I've got a 5 day leaving tomorrow with the following rigs ready to go:
15lb bait rod
20/25lb bait rod
30lb bait rod
40lb bait rod
50/60 bait rod
80lb bait/dropper loop
50lb yo yo
40lb jigs tick
All of the bait rods are full of spectra and will be fished with short flouro leaders, so I...
Any advice on purchasing a skiff to be kept in my garage. I've got a 2 car garage with a vertical clearance of 84" and length of 19'. I'd like to keep the rig straight as possible so that I can get a car parked in there too. I've got about a 10k budget. I plan on using the boat for inshore...
