    My buddy Glenn's Cortez, he sold it a few years ago - that thing was insanely clean and killed a silly number of white seabass. His 2 bait tanks are located where the back jump seats are and he had a cushion for them so you could sit on top of either tank if you wanted. Bait held extremely...

    Boat is 25' class: LOA about 28', trailer just about 30', if you need exact measurements I could take them for a buyer. Attached a quick picture of the bilge and inside shots of the electronics cabin (2 locks for security). The pilothouse fiberglass, inside and out is in excellent condition...

    Dream boat for less than 100K

    Check out my 2005 Davis 25' Bahia - just listed it. I guarantee you will not find a better platform for under 100k that you can trailer. Hand built, commercial fishing platform that averages 3-3.5mpg, 22-24 knots cruising, and UNREAL fish ability with a giant v-berth for sleeping with a new...

    2005 Davis 25' Bahia - Half Cabin Pilothouse with Rebuilt Diesel KAD43 (0 hours)

    Have requests for a handful of pictures - I'll stop by and uncover the boat tomorrow, will add pics by tomorrow afternoon. Boat and trailer fully loaded is around 9-10,000lbs depending on how much ice/fuel. My F150 with 3.6L EcoBoost and a set of airbags pulls it no problem and I've trailered...

    2005 Davis 25' Bahia - Half Cabin Pilothouse with Rebuilt Diesel KAD43 (0 hours)

    There are also 2 custom transom livewells built into the boat - port and starboard you can see those hatches that are maybe @ 8-10 gallons each? Some guys put a big 60-90 gallon tank on top of that deck hatch (access to fuel tank/fuel pump and lines) You can hinge it or just remove when you...

    2020 really sucks, but still plenty to be grateful for. This boat is crazy fishy whether you are in tight off the island or chasing foamers offshore. Also caught the first Pacific Bluefin Tuna on the fly IN California waters off the 289 last year. 44.2lbs on 20lb test tippet 2 (Starboard and...

    Boat is sold. New baby and a 2nd one planned, COVID-19, job losses, no small business support for chartering, etc, etc. It's been the year from hell and I'm going to have to sell my boat, already closed my business, and am back working in accounting for a few years. Praying to rebuild this...

    23' Edgewater Center Console - Custom Built for SoCal!! (Back on the market!!)

    With fuel and gear, trailer and boat weighs about 5,800-6,000 lbs. I’ve never weighed it at a truck scale or what not. It may be considerably under that depending on how much fuel, ice, etc. I towed it with an FJ Cruiser without any issues.

    Asking $45k and motivated to sell! I just put the down payment on a 25' Davis Bahia that I've been saving/dreaming about for over a decade.. I *would love* this boat to go to someone in SoCal who appreciates the proper live bait setup. Mark Wisch from Pacific Edge helped a lot with guiding me...

    Offshore Mako Shark Bait and Switch Part 3 ( video )

    Redington film I helped shoot off my boat this summer, these are the standard "fly fishing" size makos. Once they are up over the 200lb range, it gets pretty tricky to actually land them on true fly gear. But crazy fun just to see and hook them on the fly!!

    Offshore Mako Shark Bait and Switch Part 3 ( video )

    BIG Mako we had a shot at this year on the fly. 16 wt and one of the largest arbor Orvis reels made, drag BUTTONED and he whooped us good and snapped the 80lb fly line core on his first big backflip. Sorry for poor quality as the GoPro died right after the eat.. I had already been filming alot...

    Offshore Two days of Local Tuna and a Marlin - 10/08 & 10/09

    Hey guys, I haven't made a post in a while, but have been working hard to be on the fish all year in my skiff. After landing my first giant bluefin earlier this year, I couldn't imagine the season getting any better. That fish came from the 499 off the backside of Catalina, no boats in sight...

    Catalina Yellows - July 3rd

    8 wt and 10 wt, full sink type 6 Rio lines. They weren't terribly deep, but it helped limit the bonito and target yellows a bit better when you got a decent sink.

    Catalina info

    It's good all over the island right now. You could troll a rapala in 80-120' of water while looking for a spot. But to be honest, the entire front side has shots at yellows and the backside from Can Dumps up to Silver Canyon is going offffff on the squid. I'll see you out there. If you see...

    Catalina Yellows - July 3rd

    Ran out to Catalina in search of yellowtail this morning and found them in a handful of spots along the east end. Conditions were good with water temps around 68-70 deg, good water clarity, and lots of water movement from the mid-morning high tide. Best times were doing the incoming and...

    Seiner boats off Newport right now, getting all these pesky tuna out of our water

    How close are these guys? I thought they weren't allowed within X amount of miles off the California coast? Really sucks to hear as we are all hoping for an epic summer and the tuna really haven't turned on YET in terms of hitting artificials etc..

    Trolling through the 150...

    I saw the same thing.. Was insane, I counted 70+ boats at the 150 at 6:30am. We ran southwest towards Avalon bank and found a billion dolphins smashing bait and birds following. Trolled around slowly looking for marks and then came up on a nice paddy. First cast on the paddy resulted in a few...

    A little help...

    Wait, you live in SD, but you want to drive up and fish the 150 for yellows? There's a ton of really good yellowtail fishing A LOT closer to you than running up to long beach to hit the 150..

    Catalina 5/9

    Tough conditions, started around Farnsworth and worked our way to church rock in the morning. Scored some small calicos fishing white/black clousers and sculpin patterns. Seems like the rain and cold water really pushed the yellows a lot deeper. Saw tons of bait on the meter, but didn't see...

    Newport 5/2 Fly Fishing

    Only a 3 foot leader? That's super short, I rarely go under 6' of leader unless I'm fishing the surf and rough conditions. But I guess the shorter leader will make it easier to feel the takes. Sometimes I'll use floating line with a 12-15' leader to "jig" flies for halibut and such. This...

    Newport 5/2 Fly Fishing

    Gotta love the feel of a fly rod, now it's all I use! One of the best patterns for local inshore is the "VP Anchovy", basically a sparsely tied black over white clouser with medium to heady red dumbbell eyes and thin blue/purple lateral line to represent the anchovies around. I tie them about...

    I need a saltwater fly fishing setup.......

    You're better off buying an Echo or TFO which is an affordable rod and then getting a quality reel that will have a serious drag system if your targeting larger saltwater species. I love the Echo rods by Tim Rajeff and he gets rods warrantied fast with their lifetime guarantee. Great feel to...
