    Davies Ramp closure 05-24 to 05-28 for mainten

    They neglected to state the year the maintenance will be finished. They conveniently didn’t put that in. “Friday, May 28, 2022....”. That’s more likely the real date.

    Davies launch trailer stolen

    WTH has happened to our society?? We are living in a cesspool and the politicians encourage us to keep swimming.....we’ll get used to the smell....”it’s how roses smell nowadays”. And we, the law-abiding citizens pay the harsh price every day. Hope they catch the flies that stole your rig. Hope...

    Goodbye & Thank You

    John. Competed against you for a couple of short years and always wondered where the fish catching talent came from and it’s no surprise; time on the water, focus and a complete dedication to the sport and art form. Regarding Kalifornia......I run out of words in describing the corrupt...

    What is this? (Sonar pic)

    Third-spawn calico. If they stick around and there is no bait in the vicinity, spawn. Yes, I know....spawn this late??? They don't have a calendar. Do any of us have a calendar as to when we go to spawn?? LOL. My $$ on column suspended checkerboards

    Catalina 10/8 Fog Delay and a PB Toad

    Excellent. I remember my brother and I taking our father fishing on his last trip at the age of 89.9999. The memories are golden. Stick with it. It is a privilege of the highest order to be able to take care of and to share these wonderful moments with your father (or mom!!). God Bless...

    HELP!!! Shelter Island Port Master Plan REMOVES PARKING LOT

    This is an example of only one of the underlying reasons the founding fathers and the colonies declared their independence from the Crown. They said, "THAT'S ENOUGH!!!". The California leftist agenda has gained more momentum in the past few years than ever before, but now it is even more...

    Cat 7/21

    Ditto on the weather. We were so focused on the bite we didn't leave the island till 4 and we paid for it with a really rough ride back and water off the port side like a fire hose. PFD's, kill switch and handheld's a must!! Wait a bit and this wind will be history and conditions will be...

    98 21 Bay Champ W/06 225 Merc optimax

    Bump for a great boat. My brother and I have a slightly later version but the hull and layout is the same. This is one of the finest riding boats of its size out there. We have been in some nasty, snotty stuff and we have come back safe and dry. Good luck on the sale. Great deal.

    That's a great report and a great example of using your head. Any of us who have spent any time on the water know that mother nature forgives no one for their stupidity. Good move and excellent fishing. I will be moving to Florida in the next couple of years, God willing. California has...

    Stolen toy hauler

    .....I was just thinking.....for the amount of rent you pay for a spot there.....there is no 24-hr security system of any type? I've got 24-hour cameras with triggered recordings and spotlights on my humble house....why can't they institute something like that at Sunset? Wow.

    Stolen toy hauler

    We have reached relative anarchy; the long-term goal of the Alinsky-worshiping elite. My fellow Americans, it's time for curbside justice. Our own law enforcement infrastructure is failing us and it is now up to the individual citizen to protect his or her loved ones and possessions. A sad...

    Catalina Island- great fishing until--

    You won't find this type of behavior in most states. California is falling apart socially. Not ethics, no civic values and no morals taught in schools or in the home: what do you get? You get this commode of a society. I have so many friends that have left because the grief isn't worth it...
