    First post in a time has decreased dramatically since kid #2 came along. These things happen.... The good news is, kid #1 is starting to be old enough to take surf fishing, and yesterday I took her out on her first "fishing boat" LOL. Rented a skiff out of Davey's Locker and...

    cattle vs private for tuna

    I've enjoyed myself on both options over the few years I have been offshore fishing (6 years now). It's a little extra money, but I do prefer having the boat (basically) to ourselves. I've used Seasons Sportfishing a half dozen times the last couple years and they are excellent. They are a 4...

    Fishing has a lot of variables, many of which are out of our control. But one CONSTANT is a fun time and max effort from Jamie and Duane. Glad you guys had a good time, and hey, you brought fish home in what sounds like some less than ideal conditions.

    Well done on the mako. When you release makos (or any other shark for that matter) do you handle the release? Long pliers? Cut the line? Just curious if I ever get in that situation, I'm not some shark lover PETA freak.

    Me (maybe 12 at the time), my brother (10), and my pops took a guided horseback fishing trip out of Gunnison, CO to a lake WAY up there somewhere (can't remember the name) and proceeded to catch a stringer full of brook trout and cook them by the fire that afternoon. Just a day I can't forget...

    Looks to me like these guys had a kick ass day on the water and shared their experience (kinda, you know, what BD is for). Maybe multiple small makos shouldn't be harvested, BUT, the real bad guys are the ones who are taking undersized fish daily and not posting. It's happening every day, and...

    Oh No I think someone thought this was a Mako! Its a Great White to me HB PIER

    I completely agree with you. The fact that this was a GW is secondary to the fact that these guys are harvesting juvenile sharks with no regard, no license, and no respect to the resource. Whether they are mako, thresher or GW who cares?

    Oh No I think someone thought this was a Mako! Its a Great White to me HB PIER

    This just really sucks. 99+% of casual sportfishermen like us spend hundreds and thousands of dollars a year to do this stuff the right way...not to mention pay CA and federal income tax to pay for public parks, piers, etc...and these losers get to benefit (illegally) from it. Fuck, I don't...

The ONLY shred of hope i can cling to for this guy, is that there was some question about the ID on the...

    Offshore Voyager Sat 6/26

    My buddy nailed one on a purple chrome with a slow retrieve down around 50 feet or so. Another guy got one casting a blue white surface iron behind the boat when a jig strike hit...and another guy got one on a heavy swimbait....pretty random if you ask me.

    Offshore Voyager Sat 6/26

    It was okay. It got cold/windy later in the day. Believe it or not it rained on us briefly during one of the jig stops. Light drizzle didn't last long. We saw the sun twice for a total of about 30 minutes. Maybe 6ft. swell, slightly higher at times.
