    Record time buggin at Cat! 12/21/19

    Not sure if you've read the regulations, but I believe if you use the word "girlfriend", you are required to add a picture. :-):-):-) JK, congrats on the nice catch

    Hawaii Kai Ramp Closure

    Launched there this past Sunday. DNLR had two trucks there around 5:30 am making sure nobody used the dock. You had to idle in slow to the above mentioned tires hanging from ropes in order to pick up your buddy. Definitely would not tie up to the ropes holding the tires by the rocks.

    Paddy Poaching - DP

    At first I'm thinking "what a dick". You had me for a while, but you didn't ask the Sportfisher for a Cheese Burger or to slow down after catching a trolled Dodo while being towed in!!!

    From Bad to Worse To Pretty Fantastic - 8.6.18

    Nice Catch. To avoid any future bad luck, you may want to move that popper outfit to a different rod holder where the hook won't catch a leg. :)

    Towing services

    Boat US has a vessel located in Honolulu. They have a smaller service area than they do in So. Cal (100 miles there for Unlimited Gold) so do some research. I believe it may be 35 miles here in Hawaii, but I could be wrong. I've used them on the mainland a couple of times but have not needed...

    Double Hoos near the coronados 9/28/15

    Hey, Looks like you snagged one of those in the eye. That's not very sporting if not hooked in the mouth. Should have thrown it back in. LOL

    Wide open leopard shark fishing. Just for fun.

    I like the replies as much as the post on this one. Funny how when the person posting can kick your ass, all the haters stay away (no complaining about anything). Wonder if Mr. Ortiz can write up all the reports going forward so the posts aren't picked apart. :D

    Pegasus killed it over the weekend!

    How'd they keep the fish in the upside down box?

    big patty

    I'd be more concerned about looking like that seal which was hanging in the sling in the "Shark Week" commercial to a giant Mako out there.

    yamaha repair guy?

    Looks like you received quite a few choices. I used to use Advanced Marine in Costa Mesa (before moving to Hawaii) for my Johnsons, but he worked on just about everything. Always got me in and done quick - even in the middle of Summer and very honest. Advanced Marine Service | Outboard...

    Rock Crabs out of Dana Point

    Bait tank on the grounds and throw them in the deep freezer when you get home. Thaw out when you want to boil them up and enjoy. For me, after boiled -mix in with a box or two of Pasta Roni and add some lobster chunks. Tough to make Crab Cakes out of them.

    BoatUS Tow Insurance Experiance. Please Read.

    I have never had to use them here, but did a couple of times in So Cal with a previous boat. They have many tow boats there and I was told about two years ago they only had one boat here in Honolulu when I moved here. I asked what happened if we launched out of Kaneohe and they said they would...

    Ahi 1 - Rookie 0. Friday 7-5

    I haven't fished very much here in Hawaii and would like to thank those of you posting info since that's how I'm learning along with the help of Capt Don who has steered me in the right direction many times. Figured since it was so nice out, we would launch out of Hawaii Kai and run the ledge...

    Boat Storage Help on Oahu

    Thanks for the replies. The cheapest I've found at a storage facility is $600/month and I could only find one place. I think I will start a new line of business!!!

    Lobster limits at Catalina and some fish too

    Nice Catch. By the looks of things it appears you know what you're doing. However, seeing "meat" between the carapace and the tail makes it appear a few of those guys are dead.

    10-3 Limits YF and Yellowtail between 43 and East Butterfly

    10-3 Limits YF and Yellowtail between 43 and East Butterfly

    Quick report, washing the boat. Started heading right between the 43 and the East Butterfly for some kelps and dolphin but no fish. Ran towards the East Butterfly and every kelp we found was loaded with Yellowfin and Yellowtail. We were throwing them back near the end and left them biting...

    Short because I'm still cleaning the boat and just trying to help the guys going tomorrow. Small YF south of the 425 along with Kelp paddy Dorado and Dink Yellows. We decided to hit the 220/1010 and didn't find a kelp holding and nothing on the troll. Pretty dead with no sporties in the...

    Wireless Kill Switch---anybody???

    Reading the info, it states to attach it to the current kill switch. I don't have a current kill switch. Did either of you have the same situation? Thx, Ron

    Wireless Kill Switch---anybody???

    Just got a new boat and wanted to install a Wireless Kill Switch. Currently the boat does not have a kill switch. Can anybody give a recommendation for a brand and a dealer in or near Orange County that can install one on a Davis Bahia? Thx, Ron

    New approach to setting up too hoop?

    As far as the spot goes, I believe the person with their traps in the water has claimed the spot--communication is key in this situation though. As mentioned earlier by somebody, conditions play a big part. The wind can move you 50 feet by the time you have your nets up and cleared them...

    Lack of Bugs/Great White??/Lost and Found

    Hooped out of MDR last night. Flat calm conditions with no current and only a couple of bugs to show for a VERY COLD night. While pulling up one net we see what we thought was a Seal go after the net right by the surface. It turns out to be about a 6 ft shark. I have fished for many years and...
