Left Cabrillo marina on Sunday with one mission to put my nephew on a yellowtail. So proud of the kid for being 2 years sober.
Picked up excellent bait at SP bait and cleared the harbor about 6am. Being that I hate to fish holiday weekends I decided to fish the backside hoping to avoid the...
So badass ! Me and my buddy Matt went out again this last Monday on the 9th and had a similar experience. We started hooking football size BFT right on the island as well. One of them I played tug of war for 20 minutes with a seal. Looks like you got more meat back than me 🤣. Congrats again...
Prior to Covid I was always going out. This whole Covid screwed me uo and kept me busy at work making it hard to get out. Maybe 6 times in 2 years. WTF??
Monday August 2nd I made plans to get out with my buddy Matt who handles all my electrical needs in Cabrillo marina.
A week prior I went out...
Haha all good man! This part is funny!
Especially saying this comment to a guy who owns a business in LA county for several decades specializing in Rolex repair/service.
So don’t challenge your watch collection against mine. You will lose. 😂
Have fun out there and be safe. 🍺
Sorry for you bud that you were not happy.
I had it done in April of last year. Definitely was his slow time which helped me I’m sure. Over a year later and I still have been very happy with mine. He used all Sunbrella material on mine and all stainless steel hardware.
Sucky situation. Hopefully it does not happen again.
If it does, next time have another boater pull you in to deeper water so you can drop the anchor.
Much safer to be on the hook while waiting for help. At least in your situation.
Me personally, I hate fishing around too many boats. If FD says fish are on the east end of Catalina. Be ready for a thousand boats there. I usually have more fun doing the opposite. Hit the west end with no boat traffic and materialize your own bite. It works.
Nothing stops someone with passion.
Not a wife nor any doctor.
Truly fantastic that you got out and caught some fish shortly after your surgery.
And a nice tail to boot!!
Congrats Cory! And welcome back!
This is the part of fishing that gets our adrenaline going and makes us more excited to get out again. HC I hope I have half the energy and passion you have towards fishing when I’m your age.
You are a BEAST and I love it!!!
Your bluefin is coming.
Thank you for always posting great reporrts.
Father and son memories like that to me is priceless. Just remember, catching is just a bonus.
I will be doing a father/daughter at cat tomorrow. We are so looking forward to spend time together. I will have a blast just pulling on calicos with...
No worries man. All good. We have all been guilty of doing the same. But You immediately reacted, changed your course, and apologized. Not like other ass clowns who don’t have a clue and drop anchor in your chum line.
I have never lost so many fish because of human error. We were fishing 20lb...
This type insulation is easy to scrub and rinse.
I highly recommend not to permanently install this insulation. You don’t want fish guts and blood getting under it where you can’t clean.
So much better to just pull it out and rinse after use.
I don’t know how’s other fish boxes drain but mine definitely drains through the bilge.
What makes this reflective insulation so great is that you can easily pull it out and rinse and clean both sides without damaging it. Totally waterproof.
Here’s a copy and paste from the Home...
Make sure whatever boat you pick, the outboard you have is the max HP that the boat is rated for. That will be a good start for better fuel efficiency. Otherwise the boat will lag.
And FYI... I am going to have to agree with Shad Burke. My little CC can go 40+mph
But I cruise at 22 kts so my...
Loaded up on dines from San Pedro and headed to Avalon to load up the 2nd tank with squid. Worked the front side all the way west with no luck doing everything I can not to be anywhere near where there was a cluster of boats. Got restless waiting for the high tide to Fish Yellows so I decided to...
More than likely you are looking for a boat that’s really worth 10-15k for 5 grand.
If that’s the case, I’m sure someone here rather buy it themselves and flip it for a profit.
Regardss, good luck on your search.
Worse comes to worst, save for another year with a higher budget. We’ve all...
Mine is mounted to my T-Top with the bracket provided with the radio. I love it.
Actually it is mounted just under the electric box. Instead of inside like it use to be.
Never could hear shit! Now I hear it great.
So much more convenient for me.
Yes my kill box does have a drain.
My only concern is the Fish blood and guts that run through the drain getting stuck in the hull.
I’m thinking it could cause a nasty Oder in the hull with some of the guts that get stuck in the middle and never gets flushed out?
I just thought I’d share this with the bloody decks community.
I always had 20 lb bags of ice completely melt after a few hours making my fish box useless to preserve fish. So instead I just used a kill bag until now.
I went to Home Depot and bought a roll of 4’ X 25’ of reflective insulation...
Wait... do you not add a hook to your flyer or use fluoro?
You did a complete breakdown of cost using giant squid but you never did a comparison with a fresh flyer. Lol.
Definitely will not argue that a fresh one for 30 bucks is a kick ass bait.
Just don’t rule out fresh giant squid.
Prime candy right there!
For you guys who don’t want to spend the money on this.
Find a local fish market with fresh giant squid. Add a 12 odd circle hook, rubber band a torpedo weight, drop in the zone and your good to go.
Cory, you have to be one of the most respected and admired people here on Bloody Decks. It is absolutely awesome to see the love you bring to this great community and the love and support given back to you. We are all rooting for you and know you are going to come back stronger than ever before...
I launched out of Dana Point about 5 years ago with Sully owner of Trout King. We were on my old Crestliner about 40 miles out.
This was one hellava site to see a blue whale right near the boat. We both knew our lives could have ended in a split second and agreed this experience would make it...
To me it looks like both. The sea lion was ripping apart a ray and some sort of bird dove on the carcuss. Pissing off the sealion, it ripped apart the bird too. My 2 cents.
Don’t fuck with a dogs bone!
Native Sun has to be the rudest captain of all sport boat captains to other boats out there.
While I don’t blame them (NS) for getting pissed at skiffs being up their ass, they need to learn to be courteous to other boats already fishing in a spot. Instead of trying to swamp the small boat...
Great report and info. I think I saw you out there. I was at the farm on Friday with my buddy and he was dedicated to catch em on a popper. So I drove while he was on the bow waiting for them to come up.
We decided to work the SW corner where at the time had no boats except another center...
Thats all great and dandy. But I called him and left 2 messages to do my job and He never called me back. So I had to keep looking until I found Jose who was willing to help me.
That poly carbonate is very nice but it would not work for my application. You can’t roll poly carbonate. Glad you...
Funny you asked this question. I have a Garmin xsv unit too and I have floscan as well. I just asked my installer during the weekend if he can tie this all in to my Garmin too so it reads everything off my 2005 Yamaha OB. He said he definitely could do it but it is a big job and would cost me...
Not sure if I’m understanding you correctly. But if I am, you are referring to a power steering leak? I had a similar problem with my Yamaha OB. I paid this guy in Santa Fe Springs to service my ob. He was one of the founders of SWBA bass tournies and is a great marine mechanic. He suggested he...
I just had Jose do my T-Top in Black so it will match my enclosure too. Very pleased with Jose. Since I’ve done mine quite a few guys have used him too and have been pleased.
I also installed a new antenna and added Garmin's new Fantom Radar. Pretty awesome radar. Targets going away from you...
It cost more so it must be better.
It is one thing to brag about someone’s work that you are happy with and the quality of their work.
It’s another thing to bad talk the competition.
Your post would have been great if you left that nonsense sentence out with toilet in it.
I expect your...
Haha I know I have a lot of rod holders. But it works out great for me because they are always out of my way.
I’m not sure what you mean about the flap?
Are you referring to the gull wings?
I paid 1250 for everything including the wings.
I had another place that was highly recommended to me by...
Jose completed my center console this morning and I couldn’t be more happy in dealing with him and his quality of work.
He didn’t play any games with me and finished when he said he would.
I couldn’t recommend him enough. He does upholstery as well. I had him paint my upholstery too and it...
The fabricator said he thinks he should be done by tomorrow and is planning to install the enclosure tomorrow.
I will post up pics when he’s finished for those who are interested and I will post up his contact info as well.
Garmin was a great choice!
Love my 7610xsv.
I assume you meant B175 HW and not B157?
I’m very happy with my B175HW that I also purchased with Gil from Semperfifishig
Enjoy the new toy.
Can someone suggest a good amber filter for the fujinon 14X40. The one provided in this thread does not seem to be available on Amazon.
Baker’s marine too?
Unless someone could suggest another one.
Thanks in advance
The reason I’m posting this is because I see a lot of random post of other BD’ers looking for a recommendation for someone who is mobile that does enclosures with eisenglass or Strataglass
He was referred to me by a guy who’s in my same marina as me. (Cabrillo marina). The boat owner who has a...
I loved your post Steve!!!
You brought back so many great memories for me when I went about 7 years ago with a few friends.
We brought our fish to a restaurant for them to cook it up. And they had the best clams. Is this the same place you were at?
I tried calling this company today several times and it went to a generic answering message. Not your typical voicemail recording you would hear with a business. Nonetheless, I left a message this morning but never received a call back?
Nice job as always Corey,
Haven’t heard or seen you around at all on social media either. I always enjoyed your post. I hope you been good and life is serving you well.
Looking forward to future post from you.
Straight up trophy right there.
Most of us will never experience a biscuit of that size in our lifetime. Especially local.
Our chances are better to land a cow bft.
Enjoy the moment. You have paid your dues and deserve it.
You’re still a douchebag!
Kids should never be allowed near you.
My money is on Lynndeva that she outfishes you 5 to 1
Btw...just a friendly reminder. You made a fool out of yourself here all because of Fish. Just remember, that’s all it is.
And you are a bigger fool to degrade her because...
I had a routine 100 hour outboard service scheduled for May 8 with West Coast Marine. Plan was to drop it off Tuesday morning and pick it up Friday morning. Basically it was just the basic service for lower unit oil, filters, plugs, zink, etc... I told them to check and replace if necessary the...
I am going to have to totally agree with this statement. I always get Big game over izor because I feel it has less memory. Totally preference I get it.
That being said, growing up doing a lot of multiday trips, captains use to make fun of the guys using fluoro. Back in the day, it never...
If I understand you correctly, you are trying to add power steering fluid?
If that is the case, there usually is a little cap on top of the steering wheel to add steering fluid. You do need to purchase an adapter to pour it in so you don’t spill it all over the place.
They sell this adapter at...
I had a leak problem a couple year as well with my Yamaha 150. A mechanic told me that the only way to fix it was to replace my entire seastar hydrolics. Said it would be 1500.
Figured I would pass.
Then my next service I used a different mechanic for service and he said he could fix it for...
The only pump that works for me faithfully with my 50 gallon bait tank without burning out every trip is a 1100 gph Shurflo. (Piranha)
Tried other brands and they would burn out on me mid day while out every trip. Other brands could not handle the high pressure with a scoop style pick up and...
Very nice setup Brian!
I had the same exact experience as you with Mark and went with Randy a few years back.
I wanted a 50 gallon bait tank so I called Mark hot with cash in my hand to order one. I hung up the phone feeling so bad I bothered him.
Then I called..::
Randy with Bluewater and he...
God Dayaaam Ron!
I don’t know how I missed this boat.
Absolutely bad to the bone!
Fuck meeting you in SD to buddy boat.
Just take my money now I’m going with you. lol
Huge congrats Ron!!! I’m sure you deserved it. You paid your dues, now enjoy it.
Very sad news....
In 2015, I was one of the idiots chasing those stupid wahoo and never got one.
On one particular solo mission, I left early in the dark with a heading to Catalina. I hit this big swell in the dark that threw me clear across the boat that literally almost threw me out of the...
Shit is so fucked up right now with nothing going on with fishing that I actually read each and everyone’s comment.
Great report and thanks for the good laugh!
Btw... just promise to lip that white when you catch it and post up the pics here.
Thank you Shad for the heads up. I was not aware they did that.
I love dealing with them. I’ve actually had them work on my boat several times and I was very happy with the service from Gonzalo and Nick.
I just didn’t feel like towing it from San Pedro to Costa Mesa. And then go back to pick...
7610 XSV here with a B175 HW.
I totally love it.
I think you are safe with either Garmin or Simrad. Just like others said, don’t skimp on the ducer.
I have no problem graphing at 25 -30 knots
The one cool thing about the Garmin that I don’t think the Simrad does,
(maybe it does now) I...
My Boat is in San Pedro Cabrillo Marina.
I have used one of the guys in Cabrillo marina that several people recommended and I had a very bad experience. Ya theft ain’t good and even worse when you catch them and their excuse was they didn’t think I wanted these things so they took it...
I own a Garmin 7600 XSV series that is touch.
While my part of me loves it how easy it is, the other part can’t stand it when my fingers are wet. It could suck. I wish they made it with both options like Lowrance. Or maybe they do and I am not aware of it.
The 1 inch screen is better but it...
If my life wasn’t so busy, I’d buy this in a heartbeat and trick it out. Even if the motor was jacked up and needs a repower, still worth it.
Looks like a an excellent boat to build up for someone’s dream boat.
As far as what looks nicer, flushmout wins all the way.
If a bracket mount obstructs your visibility while underway, your dilemma is a no brainer.
I own a CC too. And I wouldn’t know what it is like to sit while driving. Unless I want to sit on top of the leaning post. lol
Ram mounts are a...
Just wanna give a huge shout out to this guy Antonio who came highly recommended in Cabrillo Marina. I had some chips, scratches, and cracks I needed repaired.
Everyone in Cabrillo kept bragging about this man. They all said that no one can color match like him. And he had 35+ years glassing...
And on the Angler to boot!
American Angler was always my goto boat for trips. My pb yt was on that boat in the early 2000’s fishing lupe.
I only had a minute of fame pulling in a 50 pounder. Then watched the guy next to me land A 60. Guadalupe island delivers the slugs of...
If I was to guess, I would guess he ran over kelp or some crap while under the gun.
Causing the alarm to trip as a warning not to burn the engine out.

Crap must have got caught in the prop and other crap got stuck in the speedo. That should be an easy fix to...
I have a Garmin 7610XSV paired with
Thinking about getting this radar unit. (18XHD) at $1350. Need some feedback.
Will it pick up buoys & lobster traps?
Is it worth the money or should I be getting the next upgraded unit Fantom.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the report!!!
Don't give up. Keep at it. Everyone of us know the feeling of a skunk. And they suck.
When you have a great day, it makes up for at least 3 bad days or more. Pay attention to everything on your trips. Water temps, temp breaks, birds, etc.... always fish tides. Focus...
Huge congrats again.
Ignore the crying. Some people don't know how to say nice things. They want to bitch and complain about everything.
Next time give the cry babies a live cuda report. Because that's all they deserve.
Don't worry about how high waves are so much.
The most important thing to Pay attention to is WIND. Wind swell is your enemy.
Then look at the period between swells in seconds. If you are 10 sec and above you are
And if there is no wind, you are Gold!
Then go fishing
Kurt, congrats on the new boat. Very nice.
I would recommend Randy with Bluewater.
He made me a custom leaning post with a built in 48 gallon bait tank. I absolutely love it.
Holds about 2 scoops with just about Zero die offs.
Just order a smaller version.
Good shit on making it happen local.
I'm the guy that talked to you at the gas dock in
Pedro. I know your buddy was amped up to fight that fish on 25 even if it took 4 hours. lol
I told him I would cut the line.
I know my odds bringing a knife to a gun fight.
But it sure in hell would...
Thanks for the report. Sorry for your loss.
I was there last week hooking big yellows wishing some of those ass clowns would give me at least 20 yards while I was on the anchor. Had a guy literally drift over my bow and actually hitting it.
I Asked him if he wanted a sandwich
I am gonna have to agree with you Sydney.
Mike is top notch and runs a first class operation. Never done me wrong. And on the contrary, I have been getting stellar bait.
I don't think Cory meant deliberate harm. But his negative post about his bait Doesn't help his business either.
I saw in the weather report too that the wind was coming up after 1.
We headed towards Dana in flat calm seas and it remained that way the whole time we were there. But it was bumpy on the way home. Winds were really picking up.
Just off the water
Debated if I should tow south from Cabrillo marina in San Pedro.
Was too lazy so I decided to leave from Pedro and work the 14 to the 267.
Wasn't long after the 14 (1/2 way from 14 to 267) me and two other buddies started working kelp. All While watching another boat work...
I have a few extra glow 250g flat falls for
700 bucks each. Just in case someone is
Desperate. I dont want a cow that bad.
I could stick with tails, dodos, and small tuna and be perfectly happy.
Easier on the back too.
I have a seacock ball valve (bronze)under bait pump and this flow adjuster after the ball valve in plastic.
I don't see it being a problem if it properly installed and sealed. If you ever have issues in
The future, just shut off your ball balve.
That's awesome. Sounds like you have it dialed in. Not sure if you are flying back and fort with fishing equipment thou? And maybe
You speak fluent Spanish to make things go smoother?
Loved the trip and being there. Just didn't like the experience me and my buddies had.
My reels were f'd up...
Good luck with that.
Me and couple buddies flew to Loreto
A few years back and they straight up
Started to take my reels apart looking for
Apparently they thought I was the cokerunner
Fuck that noise. Never again.
Rather fish the breakwall.

Great advice! Joe! I wish I knew that before Monday. Scraped for hours my offshore bait tank to remove all the silicon and replace the hose and install a T- Clamp.
Uhhhh.... that's what I get for letting the installer install a ribbed hose. Never again!!!
I agreee with the person that said clogged fuel line.
I think you may have a clog due To water in your fuel. Check your water separator asssuming you have onE and Check for water.
And if you have water in your fuel that means you have a leak in your gas tank. No bueno.
GL and keep us posted.
Funny thing, I did buy that speaker. But that Dam thing is so big. Wasn't sure if I wanted to add that to the dash. Was thinking of returning it since I moved the radio outside. I dunno.
Do you guys have one? And if so, how does it work for you?
I know! Some things are so lame and not such a big deal. But I get so excited when
Things irritate me and I finally fix them.
Am I alone?
For me, the last couple years it has been driving me crazy that my cb radio is inside the electric box on the t-top. I can't hear shit! And when I'm on...
I know exactly which boat in Cabrillo you are talking about too. I've been there with my small CC for a couple years now. I drool over that red aluminum pilot house every time I see it.
FYI... that boat in Cabrillo is new and cost
Waaaaaaaaay more. The cabin alone is absolutely sick
Most people say transom mounts will lose a reading once on plane. But IMO...
Installed correctly and you will not have a problem. For a few hundred bucks it is a dam good one.
But a thru hull is way better and well worth it if you can pull that off.
Great step by step report Cory. I know it is frustrating being out there seeing the fish and not catching them.
But it is a lot more frustrating hearing about the fish and not going out looking for them.
Kudos to you for your consistency going out and reporting all your trips good or a bad...
And he gets a trifecta.
Fished Sunday June 4th
I swear I think I get more gratification taking my buddies fishing and watching them catch fish.
He came all the way down here from Bakersfield.
We hit the East end of Cat with dines and squid. Both worked great.
Thank you Jason on helping...
I was On the way to Catalina just passed 6am from Cabrillo 4-5 miles out traveling about 18knots when my engine just shut off.
(2005 Yamaha 150)
At first I thought I had run over kelp until I trimmed the motor up.
Basically had to get half way in the water to pull a fucking blanket...
Need some help for making bait in Cabrillo Marina San Pedro.
I'd rather buy the bait for convenience but rare they have macs. And macs last all day without a single casualty
I have absolutely no problem in other harbors, but for some reason I struggle finding the macs where my boat is...
This post wins!
Best post on Bloody Decks I have ever read.
This should be on the front cover of this site, the front cover of Won magazine, and any other fishing related site or magazine.
Proud of you, your little brother, and your father. I would have paid double fare on that trip just to...
Just picked up a Garmin 7612xsv the end of last season and installed a B175HW. So I never got to see it in action.
Looking forward to put it to good use soon
I hope this unit doesn't disappoint.
Feel free to post your screenshots regardless of what type of unit. Just please specify your...
I know it was reported fixed already.
In the last several years maybe 2 or 3 times I have had this problem with fishdope.

Funny thing is...
I launch everywhere along the coast and make bait without a problem.
Been in Cabrillo Marina for over a year. For the life of me, I struggle finding the macks in there.
Would love some help from guys who have been getting them there lately.
Thanks in advance!
I have had trips where I see a boat on a paddy where all the guys in it our hanging fish.
I usually will cheer them on and keep driving. Unless they call me in. Otherwise, I keep on going.
I was fishing with Monty (Monster) on this day. And let me say, this guys mouth needed a bar of soap in...
You need another picture to identify properly.
I'm gonna have to agree with fisherman that the pectoral fin does look too long in this pic to be a bft. Could be the angle. My profile pic for this site is of me holding 2 big eye.
Nonetheless great catch!
I have the gen 3 as well as one of my units.
Looking to install the same ducer that you have. After using it for a year, would you still recommend this ducer to someone else? I've had s constant problem will my POS ducer now when I'm in deep water. The graph doesn't pick up...
Awesome report! Great job on the hookup.
That's the downfall of fishing straight braid with a short top shot. Can't fish as tight of drags as mono. No stretch. That's why you had a bent hook. Drag was too tight.
Nonetheless, great job on bringing dinner home. And you got to play tug of war...
I have a 21' Key West CC with a pre 2005 4 stoke 150. Outboard was manufactured in 04 without the digital connecter. So I can not install the newer Yamaha fuel management gauge. Need advice from guys here with experience.
Is the Floscan more accurate then the older Yamaha fuel management...
Yes I did! And in this case, I feel like it backfired on me. I think when I gunned it, I yanked the marauder right out of its mouth.
if I get a next time, I'm gonna let it peel line off for awhile longer then just fight the fish with the boat just in gear
I had a screamer Sunday west of the rigs on a marauder and by the time I grabbed the rod it stopped, so I reeled it in as fast I could in case it was charging the boat. But nope, it was gone.
3 trips two hookups and no fish. Not to mention a shitload of fuel, and a shitload of wasted ice for...
I feel your pain Dave. I was out on Monday at Catalina trolling marauders and a mean Joe green. After 5 min of dropping the spread Port side mean Joe green goes screaming, my buddy clears the spread and I fight this beast for a little over 5 min Keeping pressure only to have a unbuttoned hook...
Good on you Mike for the persistence.
Yours is coming. Lucky for you all the action is in your backyard.
I want a hoo!! I guess I'm not gonna get one if I'm not targeting it. Time to change my game plans.
I know it may be not be the best section in BD to post this. But I put it here since it has to do with electronics.
I need help trying to find the right ram mount for a pole. I just picked up an HDS 7" gen 3.
I don't want to clutter the dash. I already have a Raymarine C80 on the right.
WTF?? We are all breaking down and getting soft. I took a break this last weekend too. Just beat up from the feet up.
I couldn't agree more. It's so much dam work with a boat and the pressure as a captain to put everyone on fish. And when we do, we are heroes in everyone's eyes. And when we...
Thanks Mmonti for the reply.
The TM-150 is the one I was originally looking at. But I found out it only has a medium frequency. Which means it will be a 83/200. I think? Just not sure if this
One will be affective for me in the ocean.
So I have a 1500 gift card to bass pro And decided I would order the 7 gen 3 from them. Presently I am running a Raymarine C80 with an airmar P66.
I want a new unit for purposes of backup GPS and also for better radar capabilities.
Problem is, bass pro doesn't offer it with a 50/200...
I am sure someone here might be kind enough to invite you as a ho. Maybe you will get lucky and they will hook and hand to you. Tie your knots and set your drags too.
Shocking to all of us that you didn't limit out. Crazy...
Not to mention about the bait. shocked you didn't have extra bait...
Great Report Robert!
I heard you on the radio shouting out for help. I agree with you about all the drunks.
And here I thought you had several people gunning to help you. I'm so sorry, I truly thought you had several people coming to you for help. Congrats on the great memory you will have...
Let cabrillo at 830 with my princess. My only plan was to spend quality time with my daughter. And if I could put her on one fish that would be the cherry on the cake.
All by herself she landed her 1st Yellowtail at 13 years old!
Worth a million bucks to dad.
A priceless moment that I will...
Left cabrillo from the dock at 530 and went straight to San Pedro bait. I was eager to try my new 50 gallon bait tank from Randy with bluewater. Guy yells sorry we only have Macks. I say right on!! He replies "Really, everyone else is mad"
Cool give me a scoop.
Well I didn't realize he was...
Buying a few large fries now from McD's
For chum tomorrow. Should I dip them in ketchup before I chum it?
About the hook, uhh... Oh YA. Wear it on a necklace and call it your lucky charm.
i have a leaning post in very good condition. Removed from a Key West Center Console.
Total length 38"
Pick up in Marina Del Rey
With foot rest up
With foot rest down
Removal back rest to use all four Rod holders.
Randy from Bluewater did a top notch on this custom 47 gallon tank. He finally finished it and installed it today for me.
I'm very pleased! Now it's time to go kill some fish!
I highly recommend you call him if you want one! Just be patient because he is slammed.
Right on Vic!!!
Looks like you had a blast catching those toads! And congrats on a successful day.
Ummm... Next time I'd appreciate it if you dropped off a slab since you live down the street. Haha jk
Great job again!!!
Right on to the OP to feel HE should preserve the Marlin. That's what's great about owning your own boat. You could do whatever the fuck you want. But not when your on a party boat. There rules!!
And no one was breaking the law.
PERIOD!!! So your just as guilty killing a bunch of yellows even...

This thread is Awesome!
Sorry you wasted 290 bucks and didn't catch but you know the saying, you should have been here yesterday.
Next time you want a for sure thing, go to a whore house with 300 bucks.
I'm sure you will get action.
Complainers don't do well here on BD
Your complain is...
I measured total width from tire to tire a couple days ago and it was 8 feet 2 inches.
I don't think total length exceeds 21 feet.
Theres no name that is tagged on the boat.
I always made jokes when I took it out that I have an appointment with my Therapist.
My buddies always put a space...
I will try to check by tomorrow and let you know since I have it in storage. I assume it's about 21ft with trailer.
And yes it is 100 % welded. Foam insulated and will NOT sink. These are one of the best aluminums made.
I have 2 Marine batteries that are practically brand new that I will also include the cage for each one.
It's a one shot deal for 2 identical batteries with 2 cages.
125.00 for both batteries and both cages.
I live in Whittier and work in Marina Del Rey. I can arrange either place for...
I have an awesome oval fiberglass Bait tank for sale. Only used once.
Size. 27"L X 14"W X 17" H
This is one of the the better ones that is even painted inside blue to keep the fish calm. This is tank only and hose. You do your own plumbing and get your own pump.
Live in Whittier and work in...
Well I went with the much more expensive way replacing my whole new leaning post so I do not lose so much space on the boat. The new leaning post with 47 gallon tank built in was 1700.
Plus pumps and labor. Gonna end up more then 2500. But looks beautiful.
Here's how it will look when it is...
I ended up ordering a whole new leaning post with built in custom 47 gallon tank from Randy with Bluewater. I hope it comes out great and works awesome.
Unfortunately I am spending much more on it then I anticipated. I hope it pays off and I am happy with it.
month), antenna, and bilge pump. live well works awesome. Keeps 1/2 scoop alive all day. Well maintained. Also has good storage compartments and comes with 4 Scotty Rod holders for trolling. 15 Rod holders installed throughout boat. PLENTY!!! I even took this boat out last year to...
Btw...all you guys saying 130 a month is not so. You must be grandfathered In for that price because it's about 175 now.
Kinda strange, never had a storage place tell me to bring tax returns. Not to mention a credit check. lol.
Whatever..can't seem to find a better options with 24 hour...
I just called and left a message with sunset aquatic marina. Interested in taking my boat out of cabrillo marina and putting it there.
Do they have freshwater hookups for flush and power access?
Thanks in advance
Great Job Brandon!
Fuck these guys! Go back tomorrow and kill 10 more and post em up. Kill em all!
I feel like skipping tuna now and looking for the elusive rats just to post up here and piss off these no good asswipes that never have anything nice to say.
Just Purchased a boat on BD and need a 45 gallon fiberglass tank.
If any of you have one to sell in great shape, please pm me.
Or if you know somewhere to order on line. Or a company
Thanks in advance.
Looking forward in killing some fish on it Ron! It wasn't easy seeing a couple guys coming out of the water early with tuna and not being able to fish yesterday.
It was amazing to see that boat plane in less then 3 sec with 3 guys and almost hit 39mph. Of course with a light load and no gear...
Ron, do I really have to wait for the dam morning to get it? Dammit I want it now. Haha
Thrilled and feel great about the whole thing. Thank you Ron!
Also, thank you Mike for the therapy! God knows I need all the help I can get. Haha
FH, that's too funny. Looking forward on seeing your new...
Prefer a minimum of 19' CC
I need fuel range
4 stroke only Yammy preferred
Eager to buy and ready to pull the trigger on the right boat.
Price point 17-25k
Feel free to pm what you have.
Might be open to others but prefer these.
Thanks in advance
It baffles me that people think it is there obligation to tell the OP what they should Do or shouldn't do.
The OP did not ask for your advice.
He simply asked for advice on where he could get a boat loan.
Many of you live to fish.
While many of us fish to live.
GL with the Loan bro!
Thank you Andy!
YA finances are all good! No credit lines needed.
FYI... My business is in Marina Del Rey and I can't believe there isn't a place there that sells what I'm looking for.
Unless you have a suggestion?
Can you guys point me in the right direction. Kinda frustrated.
Aggressively and ready to buy another boat and BD ads are either not Coming in fast enough or seller not returning my messages.
Craigslist is frustrating to constantly look at and going through different areas because I am not...
Right on Corey! Great Video and not shocked you got some. And on light line. WOW. GOOD JOB!
Nacho is the Man! Shame on the yacht. CHEAP FUCKS!
Always tighten up Nacho! You might even do better that day.
Last time he was getting mad that I gave him too much tip and was trying to give it back...
I heard tonight tar balls are washing onto shore and Long Beach shoreline closed.
Anyone know if this includes davey's launch ramp and have any other info?
Thanks in Advance.
(I put it in report because I felt this was the right audience to know)
Launched Sunday May 31 (with my buddy Mike) and it looked like a parking lot out there. I went in a different direction.
If you want to catch fish, Stay away from the fleet and find your own bird school! And Don't run the fish over.
Quit early Cuz these fish tore us up. Haha Slugs 18-30lbs
This really sucks!!
Some bonehead whines for a year that he doesn't get called honey on a boat, comes here to trash talk the boat, and that thread goes 3000 pages.
I read something fkn awesome the Seeker does and see no one has made a comment to give props to the Seeker since last year!!!
Sorry to hear that Ian didn't have a good trip. Better luck next time.
I do have to say....
This San Diego boat needs to put Ian on there payroll. WOW what great publicity there getting from here. Everyone protecting and bragging on how great this boat it is. Can't wait to give it a shot!
Don't kid yourself!!!
The size of a person can drastically affect the way a fish looks.
I am an extremely big guy holding a fish that is a little over 20lb.
Bet you would never know, huh ?
Btw...Nice fish to the OP!
FH, would have loved to go out this weekend but the wife is dragging me away to Palm Springs this weekend.
If swells are down, I prolly will go out next Friday. And the following
week I will be doing an overnighter with my pops, uncle, and my nephews. If your up for next Friday hit me up...
Okay, well I have been real excited about a trip planned to Loreto end of this month.
Well, today I looked at 10 day forecast and it says storms on the 29th of July when I arrive.
My trip is booked and paid for!
I'm fishing on the 30th, 31, and the 1st.
Could I be fucked!!! I'm...
Nice Job Bill!
I hope I get into some good multi species end of the month when I am there!!!
One of my customers in L.A. lives in loreto as well. He is just starting his bed and breakfast there. I will be his first client. :)
Hopefully we get em!!!
Its nice to hear what's going on there.
I will be heading down there at the end of the month. Keep the reports coming.
Being that I have never been there, can I expect to see yellow's end of this month or Wahoo?:hali_olutta:
