    Brown Bait

    We still make them occasionally in San Diego bay. It can be a litrle time consuming though, but can be worth it. Generally we wont mess with this unless its the right time of the year. For years now when the the Calico Bass cheeks start to change color we'll go look around on the INSIDE of Point...

    What’s your first memory of fishing?

    Not my first fish, but the one that infected me, corrupted me with a hopeless disease that only death will free me from (maybe)... My first ocean trip at 8 years old. My Dad (rest his soul) took me on my first trip In 78 on a fullday trip on the Malihini (back in the day when Coronado Island...

    Local Sd yellowtail

    Don't be afraid to look around in other places. There are fish in other local areas with a lot less boat traffic. Too many boats driving around over small areas of fish is a bite killer. And dont ask me where, there are reasons the "other" places have been more consistent than out front of MB...

    Need Advice: Looking to pick up 30# Live Bait Rod or Blank at the FHS

    My insight is that these are stupid questions. Its like asking what are the best kind of titties? Different people like different things. Do you have long arms or short arms? Got a gut or are you in shape? Strong or not? Gonna fish mono or not? All of these plus more will help determine what the...

    Skunked twice

    Holy shit. You guys cant put two and two together? Spots get cleaned out of legals pretty quickly and they dont repopulate nearly as fast. Thats why all you are catching are the same juveniles over and over. Especially in the bays or just shallow water in general. Same thing every year.

    Trinidad 16a or 20a for Small or Weak Bait - Line Capacity and Freespool

    If your fishing smaller or weaker bait you shouldn't be making the bait PULL the line off the reel regardless of which one you choose. Assist the line coming off the spool with your hand or thumb. Trick is to stay in contact with your bait and not turn into tangle guy.

    Best spinning rod to catch big tuna

    Not a good idea to fish a spinner on a conventional rod. Couple reasons. Blanks have spine and it neads to be on the proper side of the bend other wise it will be MUCH easier to break especially on a bigger fish. Also the smaller guides on the conventional rod will greatly reduce your casting...

    It seems to me besides the skipping action of the yummy flier, as important is the fact that the heavy leader and terminal tackle are held out of the water by the kite (which is how they are fished) so all the fish sees is the lure. So any comparison to a stick bait is irrelevant imo.

    Those are our "Normal" bonito. There are many types of Bonito world wide but that's the only one common here. That's a fun size fish there for sure based on the size of the paper it's on. There is a Black Skipjack that CAN be confused with our Bonito but they have black spots by their pectoral...

    Fish in the first two pictures are definitely Bonito. Not enough detail in the third to ID all of them but look like Bonito in the ones I can see. Yep, they are a blast to pull on. I don't know which one you are referring to as the big one... unless it's in the third pick and some are too...

    Dude, it's actually pretty simple to tell the difference between Bonito and common Skipjack (Black Skipjack are a different story).

    Something I think that is being overlooked in this that had to in part fuel this was some of the asshole behavior of the passengers on the sporties towards the locals when this was happening. Reinforcing the "ugly American" image to them and our sense of entitlement didn't help anything

    So if you are going to educate the masses, do it correctly. There are only five species classified scientifically to be "true tuna". They are from the genus named "thunnus". Bluefin, Yellowfin, Bigeye, Skipjack, and Albacore. Bonito are from the genus named "sarda" and there are several of...

    Dude it was a fucking joke. And Bonito are related to tuna, but actually aren't. It's a subspecies family. Mackerel are also related to both tuna and bonito in the same way but are neither as well.

    I think you have over estimated the impact to the areas where "high grade Yellows" exist. Half day boats around here run with 45 to 70+ people a day everyday. Spring, Summer and the first part of Fall REGARDLESS of what is being caught. Most of them are tourists and casual fisher folk who I...

    Don't necessarily see the correlation between Largemouth Bass in a lake and Yellows in the ocean, but I'll digress.

    So how many times has the large fish spawned in its lifetime? Say a 40 pounder? 30 - 40 times? That's a lot of chances to replicate the species. How many 40 pounders are taken in a day? How many 2 pounders are taken in a day (think about that genius)? That fish served it's purpose by the time it...

    Dude you are full of shit. Taking fish before they spawn is worse than taking fish that have. It's all I'm saying and don't give your stupid long winded crap to the contrary. For example. Say 10 fish were caught. All of them were juveniles and obviously hadn't spawned. We're would we be? Say...

    Yellowtail Conservation

    I don't need statistics to show me that keeping juvenile fish is not beneficial to the health of a fishery. The grey area is HOW badly it impacts the resource. Wait until they reach spawning size before keeping them. It's a simple step that is ethical. Doesn't matter if it's legal or not. We...

    This has been hashed out here before, but the basic difference is not if the end is bent or not, it's that the harpoon is potentially thrown (and if by someone who knows how to do it could be thrown a pretty good distance). Gaff (even flying gaff though attached to a rope) stays in your hand...
