    Why the launch ramps are closed

    Incorrect. Sneezing/coughing spread the virus. Those droplets remain on hard surfaces for a long while...Several days? Uo to 17 days? Be safe.

    Pilot house in front of Dana Landing

    Zukes over Yamaha? Lets start there. Then, why put 200s and not 250s or 300s? If you are buying this boat and don't have the coin to pony up for the ponies or for the fuel, you're in over your head, IMO. At some point, you're pushing smaller engines harder.

    Nice meeting you and your father, Matt! Crappy trip, but we made the best of it... Now we know. The crew OVERFILLED the bait tanks by about 100%.

    Hx is fine. You don't need a Raptor. 20lbs of drag will land a100 lb class fish all day long. If you hook a cow, it can be done with some luck and clever angling.

    Bass Pro to Buy Cabelas?

    I live by BPS and have told numerous managers that they need to revamp their tackle regionally. You can't carry the same shit at every store... There is a fair amount of irrelevant east coast tackle on the rack... They are getting better, but.... And their ammo prices..... They also need...

    This season really THAT good

    I got cornholed on 2 blues, one big, one HUGE!! I also caught a slob Wahoo, all within 12 miles of Dana Point. I caught a load of tuna and lost 2 that were bruisers. Drove away from paddies with an insane amount of biting Dodos. Last year was a more consistent tuna year, smaller grade though...

    Sorry to hear about this. I've spoken to you a couple of times at the wash down in DP. That is a very unique boat, which should not be hard to find... Put an ad on Craigslist. Somebody had to of seen it.

    All BS aside, I am so excited to have caught this slug locally. My father pointed out that we had been skunked on the last several trips that he has come out. (Aside from losing a Blue Marlin). We always have fun, but we really needed to score. Best day ever on the water I 'd have to say.:D

    Defeated by marlin and wahoo off the domes

    Dana Point 9/30

    I muscled a striper to the boat in 5 minutes with 100lb fishing for cows. It sank out when we removed the hook. I had them try to gaff it, to no avail. What a waste. Also caught a 671 lb blue in HI, which died. Took 2 hours of Wicked Tuna type line pulling/cranking.

    Question on trolling for wahoo and bills at the same time.

    Good question! I have had marlin strikes on both last week. Marauders are in the white wash, jigs are just behind them on the face of the second wake. Mjg/bp jigs, orange&purple/black marauders.
