    Lost hoop nets 3/5/19

    Posting for a friend who lost a couple of hoop nets in SD Bay last night due to a bad batch of lights. All lights went out. He said they are the rigid raised nets and have a depth marking on the top of the buoy and the PVC canister style bait cages clipped on. Any help would be appreciated.

    We fished on Friday, with a leisurely 7:00 AM departure and headed to North Island after getting some small, but pretty good bait from the SD bait barge. Bait lasted all day. Crossing was a bit bumpy and mixed up due to the 7 second swell. We fished North Island first for a bonito on the...

    Correction. Fished Thursday 8-27. We looked for kelps around the 181. Didn't even bother to troll. Water was grease calm and easy to see kelps.

    Offshore We're gonna need a bigger cooler

    Fished today Sunday with my friends Andrew and JD. Weather forecast was not great so the plan was to stay close and west for an easy ride home. It was a tough ride out and we couldn't go fast in the 17 footer so we just trolled out to the 9 mile bank. Jd has great eyes and he saw some porpoise...

    New Montauk Top

    I put this top on my 2006 Whaler Montauk. The sun has just been brutal and I was in need of some shade. I went with a lightweight one and it had to fit inside my garage. Got this from RNR Marine, it's called the Montauk Shadow. Used it twice and I have to say it's been very nice to have the...

    Encinitas Dorado 8/26

    Been wanting to check out the warm water closer in between Oceanside and Del Mar. Lots of paddies this morning, some huge, others small. Water clean and blue and 72. Finally found the right paddie for a nice dorado about 12 miles off of Encinitas. My opinion, don't go too far looking.
