    La Jolla 9/7 AM fly rod

    Left Mission Bay around 6:30am into better conditions then Wednesday. 5-8mph NW winds and a south swell. The water was choppy but still made 15mph to La Jolla and 19mph on the way back. I didn’t see or have any action in the deeper water so I fished 70-50’ of water over the top of the kelp...

    14’ Livingston Caballito

    I’m just about finished with my Livingston build, so I thought I’d post up the details and what Ive learned along the way. I was going to keep the boat as a tiller and just build some decks.

    Left MB around 7 to hit the tide swing. Water was flat early so I had the fly rod out. It takes a little while to find some action but when I did it was 7 casts for 7 Calicos + 1 I couldn't stop. I got another 4 on a darkdayz Warbait. The wind was all over the place today and all different...

    I had a couple of free hours and a short weather window. I needed some salt therapy. Left Mission Bay in flat seas with no wind and ran to La Jolla at full throttle in my 14' Klamath.

    LJ/PL 2-9 & 2-111

    2-9 Fished La Jolla in the AM until the tide slacked out. Tried for some YT and WSB, it wasn't happening. So we went in to fish Calicos. It's hard to figure out where to fish because all for the structure (kelp) is gone. Warbaits fished low and slow was the ticket as was staying away from the...

    Great scoop of slimy sardines at MB this morning. Headed out towards the 226/302 area. Sea state was 2' chop with an occasional 3-4 just to make sure you were paying attention. Cruised out at 13-14 knots to keep the bait alive. Lots of kelps west of the 226 and south towards the 230, all...

    Grabbed a scoop at MB, no line. Headed towards the 371, with a detour to the 302. We found a nice size hammerhead that wouldn't let us get close enough for a photo and so we kept heading south. The morning was slow for us. We cruised the high spot and found some puddlers on 2 eyes and a...

    7/12/09 PLK

    Nate and I fished the morning tide swing from 7 to 12. Not much current or wind. They wanted the smaller baits fished slower and we had to go in after them. 6" Jerkshads in new penny, Trix, and fish traps rigged weedless. Good day, $3.00 in gas, damn I love that Gregor. 18 Cali's, 1 short WSB...

    Baja 2009

    Heres a video of our trip down Baja. Not a lot of fishing pictures, the 12' Gregor is little too small to drag the big camera out. We were chasing inshore fish for the most part, trying to get a variety. We caught ladyfish, giant needlefish, bullseye puffers, skippies, Ribera cabrilla...

    Knot ID

    Last trip to Verdugos one of the deckhands tied a swivel on one of my set ups. I got home and clipped it off becuase I couldnt ID it. 11 months later {tonight} I find it and I still cant ID it. Doubled @ the ring, and notice the tag end exits right next to the main line. What is it?

    Ive seen bouys offshore lately. They are on the 9 all the way to the 181/182. Anyone know what they are? There seems to be 2, anywhere from 100 yards to 1/2 mile apart. Saturday I saw a dive boat next to one on the 9.

    Leader knots and lengths

    With all the talks about Swordies, I was wondering what knot you guys are using to attach to your leader/main line. Casting on a Billfish with a knot going through the guides could be a mess.
