    1st timer attempting yellow fin tuna. 14 mile bank or farnsworth?

    I'd go out off the east end of Catalina and out to the 277, no guarantees but you might get lucky and it's it gets.

    Never giving up paid off - 8/25 Catalina and Dana

    That's a $300 fish at my local Pavilions......yes $30 per pound, I almost gagged when I looked at the mush they call Halibut. Nice one and great story!!
  576. 26grumpy

    Where's all the Sandbass?

    I hooked several 2-3# SB yesterday drifting in 30' for Halibut over hard bottom. Rats with fins.

  579. 26grumpy

    My 72 skipjack restoration almost done..

    Excellent results!!! I did a 72' 24' open way back in the early 1990's. I started out as a simple repower and ended 2 years later including complete re-paint, lots of wet stringer replacement etc. On completion the only thing original was the hull. I know exactly what you went through in $$$...

    The Season That Never Was?

    You should have been around after the 82-83 El Nino. If you landed a 10# YT you got front page on Western Outdoor News. There was no such thing as Spring time WSB, no summer tuna no nada. It was that way for years.

    Surveys at the launch ramp

    Just be nice to the poor kid and do the survey. The whole thing is a joke for public consumption anyway. It makes it look like the DFW is actually doing what they never did, assess fish stock.'s nothing more than a PR thing after the DFW lost all credibility with the public post-MLPA...
