    Local big bluefin reel & gear help

    May not be a bad idea to wait and see if "local big bluefin" even show again. The last couple seasons are an anomaly... You may end up waiting 20 years for another shot at them locally.

    Private Boaters PLEASE stop taking Stupid Pills!!!

    Hell, sometimes I just wait outside the break wall for the sporty of my choice to leave on their way to the fishin' grounds. I don't make it obvious cuz that would be embarrassing. Then, I just follow em nice and slow like a ninja till they lead me to the promise land.

    Private Boaters PLEASE stop taking Stupid Pills!!!

    Those in the know will typically use their radar and binoculars to locate a flotilla of sport boats. Once said flotilla is located, its game on and time to get to fishin'. That's what I do; and I'm a professional.

    For wolves, a loud voice and a rock....they don't look at people as food or a threat typically.

    SB surf Fishing

    Hey, sorry for the late reply. I was using a 7 foot light action spinning rod 6 lb mono.

Still worked pretty well, I just felt like a missed some fish due to the overly parabolic rod.

    Fishing In Cancun?

    I fished there a few years ago. The Charters are mostly dead bait fishing. Still alot of fun. Small Yellowfin, White Marlin, sailfish, rainbow runners, dorado and some real good grouper fishing. Bring your own gear or they will have you catching 12lb yellowfin on 60lb line with Penn 6/0s...

    question about albies

    Typically the cold air we get has nothong to do with the water temps. It comes from the north and the currents that bring albies come from the south. I am not a pro but I am pretty sure they are unrelated.

    fouled spark plugs?

    You can get a different set of spark plugs that burn hotter. Ask a local dealer. The hotter plugs ensure tht all the fuel in each cylinder is burned on each cycle which reduces the amount of carbon build up. If that doesn't work try reducing the oil flow. You may be running to rich.

  428. ryanm

    Catalina 4-15-06

    With gas prices the way they are I would suggest using one of the ramps out of Long Beach. Dana Point is 36 Miles just to the east end so by the time you move around the island to fish the Farnsworth or the isthmus area you are over 50 miles from port.
