    Offshore 7/16, MB-312-181

    Launched the WET-O's out of Dana Landing. Kinda busy for a Friday, but not too bad. 5-6 boats lined up at the bait dock, but they had both sides open and we moved through pretty quick. Ran a little south of the 312 area to see if we could get some foamers away from the crowd. We did, but as...

    Offshore They're out there! Any day now!

    Made a run out of MB yesterday with my son Ben and friend Mike. Got to the Dana Landing ramp just before 0500 and headed over to the barge for some nice bait. I think we had maybe half a dozen out of a full scoop roll on us. Bait was a mixture of 3”-4” & 5”-7” sardine and a couple of macs. We...

    Offshore 7/24 Paddy Hopping.

    Is it still considered paddy hopping if it's only two kelps? Went south 50+ miles with my son Ben and friend Mike. Crossed the temp break and found 73 degree water 15 or so miles south of the Hidden Bank. Trolled a few pods of porps for nada. Ben spots a nice kelp with a trash bag marker and we...

    Offshore Thursday 7/20 Report

    Made a shake down after doing some boat maintenance. Boat ran great, got the kite and yumee dialed in. Got into some good looking water at 32.47, 118.10 but never saw a single fish. Worked that general area up and down the 118 line sometimes inside, sometimes out. Oh, and does the Island have a...

    Got a borescope I can borrow?

    Doing the impellers on the Yammi's this week and want to do an exhaust corrosion inspection. Anyone have a borescope I can borrow? Was gonna buy one of the cheapies off Amazon, but I just don't know if they'll do the trick. I'm in Esco, but willing to drive to p/u. Refreshments willingly provided!

    Halco Roosta Poppers on sale at Cabela's

    Just thought I'd pass this along. They've got a few selected colors in sizes up to the largest one Halco makes all on sale for $13.79, which is a pretty good deal since the big ones are usually over $20.00...

    Offshore OPAH on the WET-O's

    Went out chasing those elusive BFT's. Got spanked on that front (zigged when I shoulda zagged), but started the day off with a stop on some birds going crazy over some porpoise right on top of the nine. Mike drops a flatfall and on the first drop, hooks up on the wind up. An hour later and this...

    Yamaha F225 - low RPM stumble

    I've got dual F225's on my Parker, and lately the port motor has developed a low rpm stumble. Starts and idles just fine, runs in high rpm's just fine, but when between 800 - 1600 the motor stumbles and looses rpm. It does not die, just coughs and sputters until it's bumped up above 1600. I've...

    Offshore Didn't kill it, but caught a couple

    Hey, I was fishing with my friend, my son and his bro-in-law? What more can you ask for? Catching is just the icing on the cake! Launched the boat yesterday afternoon (Thursday), partly to avoid the negative low tide at 0500, and partly to avoid the expected crowd on a holiday. It's bad enough...

    O-side harbor police can...

    So after two weeks of what seemed like never ending boat maintenance (impeller job led to new upper main shaft seals on both of the lower units, then the hydro seals were leaking, so both sides got done. New electrical switches, latches, blah blah blah. You get the picture...) it was time for...

    Offshore MAW quick report

    Fished the MAW today. Headed out Friday night with 2 very nice scoops of mixed sardine and anchovies from EB bros. Had heard that there was no bait, but fortunately they got a load in and we scored. Apparently later that night that they did run out. Headed out to some numbers near the 300 that...

    Offshore Still biting at the 226

    Took my buddy's family out to chase some tuna again today. Don't think any of them had ever fished tuna before, so it was kinda fun. Launched out of SI and hit the line at the bait barge. Yes, a line on a Thursday. Took close to an hour to get served. And then just as we were next in line, some...

    Offshore 8/5/14 @ the 226

    Hit the bait dock just after 5 am. Got a nice scoop of very good bait that lasted all day. Set a course for the 226 trying to avoid the boats headed to the 302. Sea was a little lumpy today, but it was very fishable. Put the trollers in about 3 miles shy of the high spot. Got there and found a...

    Offshore YFT and Yellows at the 425.

    OK, not exactly at the 425. Got a healthy half scoop of very nice 'deans at the receiver. Ran out to the islands at about 22 knts. Went five miles past the islands and put the trollers in: Black and purple cedar plug, dodo cedar plug, natural cedar plug and two black and purple daisey chains...

    182 and vicinity non-report

    Headed out to the 182 and a few miles up the ridge today. Water temp in the area ranged from 67.2 to 68.6, cooler to the south. Water looked good and we rolled up on half a dozen paddies, none with predators, a couple with bait on them. Fished em all for no love. Long boat ride. The stage is...

    Six days solo in Baja

    Six days solo in central Baja. Wasn't really going to try to leave anything behind or do any soul-searching, but those things happened anyway. Wasn't really looking for fish, but found some. Ate well. Got a little surf in a relatively surfless area. Did some outstanding off-roading, using 4x4 to...

    WTB Mossy barrel

    Looking for a used accu-choke barrel for my Mossberg 500 12ga. 24" would be sweet, but anything 20"-28" is good.

    Bomb proof. Some boat rash, but 100% sound mechanically. They have the Tiburon cranks and handles. Thinking $250.00 OBO for the pair. (C'mon... they're a matched set!)

    ORW: source for trailer brake lines

    This is probably gonna seem like a no brainer... Couple a weeks ago one of the hard steel brake lines failed on my trailer. You know how it is... they corrode and eventually fail. No big deal, I thought. I'll just pop down to the local autoparts store and pick one up. Nope! Went to a bunch of...

    Made my own bait cages for hooping

    Had some left over expanded metal in the shop so I bent up some bait cages for hooping. They're just a tad smaller than the Promar models, but I think they'll work. Now I just need to get 'em into the water to find out.

    Ok, here's the deal. I've got a Raymarine ST8001 AutoPilot in my Parker 2530. On the initial setting of the auto pilot (like when I start a new trip and input a waypoint on my Furuno 1723C Radar/ChartPlotter and set the bearing on the Autopilot) everything runs just peachy. But here's the...

Good signs of life all around the 302 to the 230. Breaking tuna under working birds as well as flashing tuna on or just under...

Sloppy choppy windy conditions. Got one fat albert 39.7 lbs. Big enough to win the SD Rod and Reel club tuna tourney. Also...

    Offshore 6/24 Hidden Bank

    To tired and lazy to make the report last night. Wasn't all that great out there anyway. Saw puddlers of bluefin northwest of the hidden bank. Birds diving, the whole enchilada. Thought we could get them to go, but they sank out fast. No go. Got one Albi northeast of the hidden bank. Blind...

    Offshore 8/16 Sat with the fleet

    Sorry, no pictures. Headed out of San Diego on Friday night and parked it near the San Clememte Bouy just to get away from the masses. Started a chum line at about 1:00 am hoping for the grey light tuna bite... it was not meant to be. Started trolling towards the 43 spot, then turned and...

    Offshore 7/10 at the 209/181/182

    Fished the 209 to the 181 to the 182 por nada today. Just one of those days. Got a good school of porpoise at the 209 and worked it for a while for nothing early in the day. Then went paddy hopping along down to the 181. Big temp break about 6 miles south of the 209. Water dropped from 69.7...
