    Dream Truck Stolen from Fisherman’s Lansing

    Ask a law dog about the operator/owners liability because those posted liability waivers claiming non-responsibility are mostly BS. You may have some recourse if well advised. The only excuse for the landing not having a security system to protect the customers is to grant shade to the dark...

    Anyone caught a fish on the chunk this year?

    The fishing has been so tough lately that I am saving the chunk to eat myself. Seriously, my freezer is empty and being the determined fisherman that I am I have tried chunk to no avail but will persist with any means necessary. Hopefully someone figures out the cure for lock jaw tuna soon.

    The Fishing Weatherman Chris Dunn

    What happened to The Fishing Weatherman Chris Dunn's reports? His reports were enjoyable and chock full of teaching us about the weather. His site is still up but the weekly video is from 7/15. Hopefully he is enjoying a long range trip.

    Line keeps bird nesting no matter how fast or slow line is let out.

    I had a problem like that which was due to stiff line. I put a more flexible mono on it and it helped to reduce the dreaded birds nest.

    Looks like a beautiful and fun day, thanks for the good report. I've been thinking about going south for a change of scenery and some fishing. Was that a 3/4 day? What did they charge? Did they have ice or a refrigerated hold for the fish? Thanks! David

    100 yards might be a bit too close if his chum line was drifting toward his port side.

    Walt, I was waiting for a report on that O95 trip and you have gone above and beyond the call of BD duty. Thanks for the helpful details and suggestions. I almost went on this trip but was concerned about the weather. How were the accommodations? Did you score a stateroom?
  281. momaguro

    Why aren'tm more 1-1.5day boats going out?

    It's a conspiracy. My guess is reduced catches in questionable weather is not a good recipe for sport boats to encourage repeat business. The conditions out on the banks has been gnarly.

    PRIDE- Late Season Pickings(*Pic Heavy*)

    Hey man, I just very reluctantly winterized my deep sea tackle with a broken heart and now these Pride pics of the epic season are rubbing salt in my wound. I'll just channel the energy into getting ready for next season part of which is putting the Pride on my bucket list for 2014. Cheers

    Stolen Avets, Calstars, Seeker Seaforth Landing

    The re-seller ID of other fisher peoples gear at the swapper is familiar and I have long perceived a shady and murky aspect in his aura. In other words he is shifty dealer with an unsavory vibe. He has had a few pieces of gear that I was interested in but a deep down feeling always said walk...

    I helped my son get some tail....

    Good on you for getting your kid(s) out and stoked on fishing. My son is now 13 and has weathered a good amount of offshore trips getting slightly sick just once. In fact I think he has better sea legs than Dad. What you eat the day and night before an offshore trip can have a very large impact...

    Stolen Avets, Calstars, Seeker Seaforth Landing

    There are a bunch of sellers of fishing gear at the local swap meets and since I do patronize some of them from time to time it would be helpful to learn who NOT to do business with. Most of us would gladly spread the word on who the pond scum is and avoid them like the plague but more info is...

    Interesting Event Happened at Fisherman's Landing Yesterday

    Without pictures of fish it will be assumed that your mega bait was left outside in an Arizona sand storm. In any event thanks for your service to our country and helping the crew get er done out there.

    Lawyers are the problem and I would strongly second Polfhishki's advice and handle as much of it yourself. It may be daunting but well, well worth it as you will find. If two opposing lawyers get in on it they will exploit the situation like a BDer on a wide open bite. If her lawyer has to deal...

    Fun report all around and kudos to the crew that kept you fed during the epic battle. Good distance range which should be the norm on a 3 day but sadly is not. The Pacific Voyager is now on my list of A-OK boats to sign up on.

    RANGER 85 trip (9/2-5) Not a good one:(

    Good info and balanced replies too. Censorship in any form is bad unless your trying to just trying to keep children safe so let the "opinions" free spool and let the adults decide what is of value.

    Stolen Avets, Calstars, Seeker Seaforth Landing

    What a very bad bummer. I hope you get your gear back and the thieves suffer the karma due. I'll keep my eyes and ears open. Did the landing have a camera for the parking area? If not they should since this is unfortunately not an isolated case.

    Disappointing Trip

    It is difficult to manage the relationship with the wife if she is present and not much into fishing on a party boat. And it can hurt to pay the fare for two if neither of you lead the charge and elbow your way into the patty bite which in most cases on a slow day means not landing the...
