    Is this a Ballyhoo, caught at night in San Diego bay

    We went out about a week ago at night to hoop net with a buddy and had a few of these guys swim up in our deck lights. They hung out around the boat as long as the lights were on and we managed to snag one with the bait net for a closer look. My first instinct was Ballyhoo but I've never...

    Offshore Monday 9/19 Took another look around the 425 again and found some fish

    Got out again this Monday on my buddy's 19 ft Arima with the same goal as last week, run down to below the border in search of yellowfin and dorado. Got the boat launched from Shelter Island at 5 am and ran to the bait barge for a decent scoop of sardines. We got everything strapped down for the...

    Offshore Monday 9-12 trolling the 371 and 425

    Been a while since I've posted but I'm going to try and be as detailed as possible so pardon the longer report. Had the chance to get out Monday 9/12 on my buddy's 19ft Arima sea chaser yt edition (his boat is named "The Slammer"). Launched out of Shelter Island around 5 am and ran to the bait...

    Spanish Landing Float Tube Session

    Thank you. I think I've had more fun on that float tube in the bay then any other boat I've fished on.

    Spanish Landing Float Tube Session

    My buddy and I decided to go out and kick around Spanish Landing this past Sunday, the 26th of Jan. I ended the day with 3 nice spotties that I caught on 5 inch Kalins grubs and my friend caught 2 using a 3 inch Christmas tree color Fish Trap. Successful day in my opinion, fishing could have...

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    Haha yeah hook in the ass and 30lb mono through the body tied off to a swivel at the mouth. And thanks for the encouragement on the bait, it doesn't bother me that it sinks. If anything I think the fact that it swims just under the surface makes it a better bait because not many on the market...

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    Yeah they are weedless, I rig them in an interesting way though. I take a large sewing needle and thread 30 lb mono through the body of the frog and tie the frog hook to the mono before I bury it in the frogs' "back end". At the mouth of the frog I tie off the other end of the 30lb mono to a swivel.

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    I can tell you it doesn't float 100% float, but it sinks VERY slowly. So walking it on the surface is not a problem at all. If i take a picture of it in a bucket of water it would look like it was sitting at the bottom of the bucket but it would sink super slowly before it reached the bottom...

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    PMed you back, fished it today for a little while with no luck. Swims well and when its hooked up it sits just below the surface.

    Thanks you, havent got the pm yet but im waiting for it
  18. Jacobk123

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    Thanks for the feedback, the hook was set with barbs down but i fixed that so they sit up. It has a solid rubber body and it doesn't "float" when rigged, but it kinda sits near the top of the water on a slow retrieve so it might still work like this. I get to fish it tomorrow so I'll give an...

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    Here is that top view. Yeah tapitio, took a few tries to get this right. the ones i messed up pissed me off though... these things take a while to cool so pulling it out and having it look like crap sucks.

    Frog Plastic (first attempt)

    This is my first try at pouring a large plastic. Made the mold yesterday and the frog was made in clay first. Haven't had a chance to fish it yet but looking for some feedback. Any input would be appreciated. Im still new to pouring plastics and was testing a few ideas, and this is what I came...

    Teach an 8 y/o how to cast a conventional

    Grab a Couple hula hoops from the dollar store and set them up in the field... Have him aim for one and every time he scores give him something... Doesn't have to be something tangible, try giving him 50 cents every time he hits the target at distance.

    SD Bay 9-19 (late)

    Sorry I've never tried Lizard fish but I don't doubt it if they taste alright if you bleed them early. Have him try keeping a few and slicing them from the gills to bleed them and once cleaned at home try breading and frying fillets. I don't know how much meat you would get from a each since...

    SD Bay 9-19 (late)

    We split all that between 3 families and made all the shark today for a fathers-day party at our house, the sharks went into the smoker this morning. We usually don't keep anything but since we had family coming over the next day we decided to keep for today. All was eaten or saved in the fridge...

Tried a few different spots until we got onto...

    float tube paint

    I've never painted one before but if its a pvc fabric try a plastic paint like krylon. That would be my best guess but look for other ideas before deciding on krylon paint.

    Noob help. Freshwater lake, San Diego

    Just my thoughts (I prefer fishing for trout during the coldest parts of the year)... Try and get to lake Jennings as early as they open in January and use the same setup that you have going for it. What I do is use powerbait on a small treble hook with about a 15 inches of 4lb. lead and tie...

    Modding/Magging an old penn?

Thank god I went with 15 of the 1/32 inch disks because now I can adjust...

    Taking Cub Scout Den Fishing . . .

    Pumping shrimp is the best idea I've seen, The pump is a great investment and will pay for itself in one or two trips. Plus the shrimp are AMAZING bait, best bait you can find.

    Squidword with the boys..Dana Pt 2/3

    Just cut off their heads and toss them in, those things kill all that swims in front of them so killing them would be a favor to everyone. Plus the other squid will just eat the carcass before it hit the bottom, everyone wins from the situation.

    Lower unit cleaning question

    I don't know why but the pictures look way worse then it auctaly is. I can just scratch off the green with my nail. As far as the paint it isn't corroded off as far as I can tell. I'm going to take it to the mechanics and see what it could use. Thanks for the help bud. :)

Everything on it is great including the motor, which...
