    Slips in Alamitos, Sunset Aquatic or possibly Newport

    I said years ago that I would never own another boat unless I could keep it in a slip (and afford to do so).

    BFT Fishing

    I've heard that the best way to catch this current batch of tuna is with straight braid to short flouro leader (as light as you can get away with). Most of my reels, and especially the 40lb capable and up stuff are loaded with enough braid to allow for at least a 100' topshot. it...

    Fathom Rail Rod reel

    I was very fortunate to have just won a new, quality rail rod. Rod is rated 60-130. Is the Fathom 60ld2 up to the task of landing a cow? How about the 40? Enough line capacity? For the amount of time I plan on fishing for that grade of tuna, I really don't want to spend a bunch of money on a...

    Lowrance LCX 19 question?

    The unit works fine up to a couple hundred feet or so. When we get offshore it starts giving depth readings of 2' 10' 2' 3' and does not show fish........just blank screen. Speed does not matter so it's not "dirty" water at the 'ducer. I have tried adjusting the sensitivity, depth, autodepth...

    Offshore Relentless charter 8/13

    Went on an o'nite charter on the Relentless. Obviously expectations were not too high due to the recent counts. Joel said we were going long to a different area as he wasn't going back to the same area again. We ended up at 104 miles with signs of life around and schools of bluefin (meter marks...

    Show on OLN

    I just watched a show on OLN called "The best and worst of Tred Barta". These guys were fishing albies 70 miles off the coast of New York. They were trolling with 6 rods and handlined spreader bar teasers. When they'd get bit the guy would keep going and get all 6 rods on fish. 3 guys...

    Simrad AP12H or 14H?

    Well my buddy wants to get autopilot on the boat (27' Wellcraft) I looked into it pretty extensively several months ago as far as prices and installation goes. He spoke to a shop down in S.D. somewhere today and the guy tells him he'll put a Raytheon unit in and it will run about $4200.00...

    Lowrance LCX 19 question?

    My buddy has a Lowrance LCX19 C unit on his boat. The thing goes kinda haywire in deep water. Shows that we're in 2 feet of water when it's like 200 fathoms! We think maybe the sesitivity could need adjustment. It seems to be ok at normal depths (according to him) Last time out it was pretty...

    We're going early Sunday morning, probably an island trip but might go for tuna if it sounds good and that swell and wind don't come up too much. Would appreciate any reports to help make a decision. Skipper Jeff should be on his boat by 4 or 5 and I should be down by 6 or so. Going out...

    Where can I get a spotting tower like this? San Diego, boat is in the water with no trailer. Has a hard top already. Raydome and antennas possibly relocated to top? We would like to get it done over the winter.

    Sunday out of S.D., anyone else?

    Gonna go out Sunday to destinations still undecided. We would like to take a shot at the tuna and it looks like things might settle down by then. The other options are the Coronados....yellowtail should start biting again I think and or some rockfishing :nopity:, possibly SCI. Any...

    Me, my buddy Roy and skipper Jeff boarded his 27' Wellcraft, "Sealutions" and left M.B. at about 3:45 with a scoop of the worst bait I've ever seen. Plan was to head to the 390 by way of the 371 then work in to the 425 and end the day and the Rockpile. Few dry paddies and 1 skippie by 9:00...
