    Yellowtail Does Not Keep Well?

    I like to leave the skin and blood line on. Then vacuum seal. Then defrost in refrigerator. Filet off of skin, cut off all dark meat/ blood line and any other yelllowed or funky stuff. Put in bowl off very cold or icey water with a little salt for 5-10 minutes. Poor nasty water off. Now you have...

    Carlsbad Surf Yellowfin

    Great report. I fished just south of Tyson St in Oceanside today. There were no sand crabs. Probably due to the new sand pumped in. Water was very warm and I was using the camo worm as well. No Bites.

    Los barilles 5/9 to 5/20

    Just got back too. Surfed 9 Palms and a break about 1/2 mile east of Nine Palms solo. Fish started splashing around as I was just watch the sea. My wife told me to grab my rod out of the car. I did and after a dozen or so casts, I got a 2-3 lb angry Pargo! Then later in the week we moved to...

    Forkies at Seal Beach warm water jetty

    I saw large bait that looked like 8" macks jumping on the inside of the surf in Carlsbad last weekend. They were being chased by something. That was the biggest sized baits boiling that I've ever seen while surfing.

    Will Do. I'm so psyched! The fishing picked up this week. Yes, I'm bringing the 25# surf rods for shore fishing. Bringing big and medium size crocodiles, other lures and plastics and other tackle. You can catch all kinds of species around the rocks. But I really want a nice Roosterfish, Pargo or...

    Inshore East Cape

    You can catch big Snappers, Groupers, Roosterfish, Cabrilla, Amberjack and Yellowtail just to name a few. From what I've seen, the people fishing in shore by boat with spinning gear are using 50# braid. I just put together two 25# mono spinning outfits for my shore fishing knowing that me or my...

    Sea Trek out of Helgren's????

    Sean is a 1st class Skipper. I knew him since he was a young deck hand on the Fury outta Dana Point. He's not only a super nice guy with his own personable crew, but his is a fishing fool. Not satisfied unless there is blood on the deck. There's been plenty of tourist getting there 1st Tuna or...

    Shout out to the Tribute

    Heard about that stop. Taking my kid on the Tribute limited load Oct 4th. Last year we tried the Tribute and the Captain went to the wrong spot (It happens. Could has just as easily went off there). So we're going for redemption and tuna blood! Glad to hear that you slayed them.

    All Day Trip Report on the Black Pearl - 8/30/14

    I went out of Point Loma on a 6-6 and we had horrible bait. I was lucky to get one fish. Chunk bait for chum. The boat, crew and captin were great though. That's fishing. I figure if you get one or two tuna on a local trip, that's pretty F#$#@! awesome.

    Looking for a couple of more for Sat's Helena Charter

    Robert, the boat leaves at 6:00 am and returns at 3:00 pm. There is still plenty of room. It's been hard to fill this one which makes me excited because these are the times we get huge reds or something amazing. See whales ect.. Last year our May trip got 9 or 11 small Yellowtails 2 miles off...

    7/25/13 Helena Fishing Trip- Killed it again!

    Tim..That's going to be a blast. My last charter with them is Saturday August 17th. The weekdays are better for offshore since there is less private boater pressure. We go some nice Dorados last year offshore. I think a friend of mine is going to do a weekday offshore trip in September. Good luck!

    Redondo Sportfishing Follow-Up

    I would move on too. You let the owner know. That's more than I would have done since I think that he should be aware of the BS. I quit chartering 2 Day Trips on the Fury outta Dana Point because I of some BS. I live in O'side and rarely fish out of Helgrens Landing because they are expensive. I...

    CAUTION Oceanside Surf Fishers

    Sorry to hear about that too. I learned when I was young to always keep an eye on our stuff surfing in HB. Trust nobody. I trick that I use is to put my towel or whatever next to a nice family or girls/ladies and ask if thay can keep their eye on it. So far so good. I live in O'side. If saw some...
