    Coronados 7/6/14

    Thanks for the report! And its never a bad time for rockfishing in my book if you can get some quality reds and lings. Especially if the bait doesn't improve cod fishing might be a lot more frequent for me

    Coronados, S9, etc. 7/6

    Thanks for the report. Looks like the water has turned there according to FD tho. Im gonna investigate friday

    Its a bummer how it seems that luck is the only way to get em recently at the coronados because they are so spread out everywhere. Gotta be right place at the right time driftin greenbacks. I cant wait til the paddys get loaded so I can quit going to the islands.

    Small tuna tower for a Trophy 2150?

    I would really like to find something that I can add on to my Trophy 2150 to help spot paddies and fish in general. Not exactly a full on tuna tower, just like a small ladder leading up to a small bench. It is already an enclosed cockpit hard top so even a bolt on would maybe work if such a...

    Left shelter island this morning at about 7 am. I pulled up 20 mackerel or so near the bait barge in about 30 minutes and then headed to the south island. Weather was perfect and water was 68 to almost 71. Started slow trolling a mack at about 845, and had my first yellow on the boat by 9...

    installing new fishfinder/ transom mount transducer

    I just got the lowrance HDS-5 for my 21' trophy. I'm a little bit nervous about putting the necessary holes in the transom to mount the transducer, any advice on water sealing after I put it on? and any advice at all is appreciated? thanks guys.
