    Coronado Islands Paperwork

    I have never been checked in all the years I have fished the Islands, but I also have all the paper work needed each time. This year there is another fee for some Sanctuary for the Islands.

    226 and the coronado islands 7-9-2019

    If you slow troll Macks, go to heavier line. If they hit you bait, 40lb plus will not matter. The whole thing with light line is so the fish keeps moving in a free motion. When you are slow trolling, your bait is moving, go heavy line.

    El Capital 1.5 day 6-7 to 6-9

    I have a great idea? Buy your own boat, cook your own grub and get skunked like most of the private boaters on this site that chase Bluefin! But the day that the sun and moon come together, their is nothing like being there!

    Most fish caught on a single day and an entire trip of long range fishing?

    Ok, this is page 5 on a subject of the greatest day on the water we all have had! This is why we all keep fishing, we have all been part of the greatest day at one point in our lifetimes.

    The hits keep coming, San Clemente 5-18-2018

    Invest in a small floor freezer. Most can be purchased for around $200. Get plastic containers for the desire block size that fits your cooler and make your own ice. Then you do not feel so bad when you have to toss away the ice if you do not use it. Figure how much you may spend on ice during...

    Trolling speeds for salmon

    I just watch my downriggers cables. I troll as fast or as slow as it takes to keep the line at about a 45 degree angle to the boat. I do change speeds at times when I run over bait and make a few paces on the bait ball.If their are no bites, then the last time I run over the bait ball, I...

    Shelter Island Boat Launch

    I was there in late February and by the pictures they have completed a lot. There is at least a resemblance of a wall and concrete poured. Lets hope the hard and time consuming work is done. Pouring concrete is a lot quicker than pounding pylons into the ground. Maybe a few pictures of their...

    Monterey Salmon reports???

    Here, is my take on Salmon fishing. We went three days in a row, the first skunked, then 2 fish , then limits. Came back 5 days later, limits, 3 days later skunk! My friends limited the day before we skunked on both skunk days. If the fish are biting, then they could stop the next day. So, pick...

    Tuna on a dinghy

    Pick the right day and you can do it on a Kayak. Pick the wrong day and a bigger boat would not help. Learn how to read the weather, check the size of your balls and go for it! Beautiful day on the water! Good thing is you only use 12 gallons of gas. I get out of the harbor and use that!

    Lizardfish everywhere

    Funny story, Came in one day with a few Lizard fish left in my bait tank fishing out of Morro Bay. A new Game Warden checked our catch and saw the Lizard fish in the tank and tried to tell us it was a short Ling. His partner set him straight! Great bait.

    10/1 tough fishing but got some

    Just a suggestion on dead bait and Dodo's. Chum with the dead bait for a while and get them feeding, then toss a chunk out with a hook on it. If you get the greedy fish to start eating then it will not matter if the bait is dead.

    Hope they stick around for a while. They are not the biggest fish, but a lot bigger than the Sardines I keep catching!

    Productive paddies anyone?

    I watched wicked Tuna the other night and this reminds me of TJ , Lots of love my friend. Best part of fishing is not catching, but planning a trip and it comes together. Go fish and find your paddy!

    ok, thanks on the heads up on the ice. Have never fished a party boat out of SD. Just thought they just had tossed your nice catch in a box. What is the fish on the deck between the two brown rock fish?

    What is it like to fish in 15ft swells and 30knts of wind, 100 miles from shore? Jump in a tub fulll of ice and water, then look at your balls. That will sum it up in a heart beat! Hats off to you for going in that slop!

    Shake down and eviction notice...

    Just a suggestion for the next time. Get up hill on the patty/boat and use their chum. They could have been doing you a favor. I have found the Tuna want to stay off of the paddy anyhow. Move up hill from them, chunk bait and drift through their chum.

    WFO Yellowfin on the Condor

    We all can justify what to keep. It is hard to beet up people who pay good money to catch something a few time a year. I am able to be more selective due to having my own rig, but a 10 lb anything eats a hell of a lot better than a 0 lb nothing. You can not grill it, unless you kill it! Nice job!

    San Clemente Island 9-18 to 9-19

    Nice report. Even though you did not get anything, it helps us to know where not to go.

    Very lucky. Bluefin, MORE bluefin, and WFO yellowfin tuna twice.

    Keep posting good information. I learn a little each time we get good post about tackle, location, etc! Helps me make the best of each time I go.

    181 9/16 3YFT

    yep, I had a few light wire circle hooks straiten out on the bigger models last week. I stopped using them on the Tuna, no real need they hit the heavier circle hooks no problem.
  70. oniedab

    Why do we keep going fishing?

    Your correct on the distance. The plan was to look at the 209, then go to the 181 and last hit the 182. Our numbers were 54/47 just east of the 181. Just a crystal clear day and you could see for miles.

    Looking to run again Sunday/ Monday. Any local Intel on Bluefin if they come up would be great. Really would like to get a few nice Bluefin before they go away.

    Why do we keep going fishing?

    I am sure you are right 8 to 15lbs and the 20 fish limit is also not in the picture, so they are a myth also. LOL!
  74. oniedab

    Why do we keep going fishing?

    9/13 We keep going because of the chance to get lucky! I Looked at recent fish reports and could not stand it any more and make a late call on Monday to head down south. I picked a beautiful weather day and off we went. We made a run to Dana and our goal was to try to get into the Yellowfin...

    9/9 182 And Back In a 17' Skiff

    Funny you said that about your bait. That is always the question, do I use up my bait on the first school and then have none for the school that I think will bite? So, we all pull back in with half a tank of live bait and no fish. Go figure!!!! Nice job!
  77. oniedab


    It sounds like you are more disappointed in not catching fish, just like the rest of us when a trip goes bad. I have my own boat and I have fired myself many times, only to go again. I have figured out it is not that you did not catch fish, but you lost a limited chance at catching something...

Life is way to short to get irritated over stupid. Forrest Gump said it best! Stupid is what stupid be...
  84. oniedab

    Worked Hard, Didn't Get Paid

    Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing on the distance you went. 14 to the 43 and back to Catalina and still had time to catch fish. Sounded like our last trip and the bad part is there are not a lot of paddies out there.
  85. oniedab

    7•29•16 Dodo

    Now where the Hell was he when I was out there for 2 days and tried 15 paddies for nothing? Nice fish!

    ah that's nothing, my fishing partner said he could had landed it on his 30lb spinning rig! He is an expert now!!! Now that story is why we all get up and go after being skunked time after time. I have to hand it to you to be that picky as it was getting dark to hang on to the hope of the cow...
  88. oniedab

    What are we doing wrong?

    We seem to do best in the dark with my spot light directed to one side of the boat. We cut up a lot of squid in small pieces and start chumming. Need to see bait on the meter first and then start chumming a little at a time. Good luck.
  89. oniedab

    Brought a knife to a gun fight... and won

    Heck, I thought we had a battle on 30lb test , you had bigger fish and lighter line. Sweet!!!

    Lucky is better than good!

    Went out Saturday to the 181,209 and back to 10 miles off Oceanside, saw nothing that looked like Tuna. Second trip so far with nothing in the way of Tuna down south. Did not even see a boil. So, we talked about going to Catalina for Yellowtail or Sea Bass. Then decide what the heck, we came for...

    Catalina 6/11/16 - It didn't blow when it blew

    In 80ft of water, stiff south wind, you would be on the beach in minutes. So if you were there by yourself then you may want to drift, but if their is a fleet. PISSED of fellow fishermen would result. You would be drifting over them all day long.
  96. oniedab

    Boat Poor!

    Boat Poor!
  97. oniedab

    Trailer Woes

    One other thing to do every year before you put the boat away. Put grease on the lug nuts just like the post stated above, but I loosen all the lugs and add a little grease on them for the winter months. This will keep them from rusting up.

    Best part of owning your own boat. Your rules on your own time! I watch the guy on a Kayak post great pictures all of the time and he would say keeping 2 is over fishing based on what he lets go.

    Three Miles West Of North Nine 7/03

    Tighten your drags on your reels if you are loosing hook- ups on the troll, That is if you are using heavier line. It will increase your stick to hook ratio. Fish sometimes grab the jig and run and the hook really never gets set in their mouths. If you get bit, give it some gas to really set the...

    Mexico bluefin limit?

    yep, you could always move to Mexico and go through their immigration and become a citizen, so you to can catch a Bluefin in their waters and also avoid getting a Visa. Really!!!! Difference is their a few people make all the rules and here a lot of people make all the rules. Same end results...

    Fun day

    Ok, I have one big problem with your post of the prepared Bluefin! You did not send me your address and invite me for dinner. I can live with the other short comings in your post, but really no invite! :)

    Fun day

    Still 10 fish. Fish & Game is suppose to post something different in July I believe it changes. Could be wrong, but can not find anything that states it has officially changed. It could be 1 and I still have not been able to get my limit :(

    Caught Weather and some fish.

    Yeah, we got caught once in the same stuff 80 miles out of Monterey. Blew up on us and 16ft swells and 40knts of wind. Went out on the front of a day that the next day was suppose to blow up. The front moved in quicker and we got caught in it. Never again, fish are not worth it. I am now a great...

    Dana Point Found Gaff.

    Just want to say nice job on attempting to find the owner. I know we have all left something on the dock and wished some one made effort to return.

    6/1 Dana Point

    Now when you say Tuna, Blue Fin, Yellow fin or a Yellowtail?
  135. oniedab

    Acres of Tuna and the RTA gets them to bite...

    your mistaken, it was his twin!! LOL!
  136. oniedab

    WOOH HOOOH! 100lb + Local Dana Point Tuna

    So, the big question, heavy line no bites, lighter lines and tears when you get bit! What is a guy to do?
  137. oniedab

    May 31st...64lb Bluefin tuna in US Waters

    what size hooks did you use? Circle or J? Just curios on the light line.

  139. oniedab


    Yeah can you imagine what the 181 will look like tomorrow and Friday with the god weather coming! Find another spot!
  140. oniedab

    Good ending

    Not sure on the weight other than it is no where near 15lbs, so nice fish and way to stick it out in sloppy conditions!
  141. oniedab

    Semi-Controlled Chaos

    I am curious on how many times you get seals to come and attempt to steal your catch? With the fish hanging over the side, does it happen much and yes, your videos are the best of the best!!!

    Redondo kelp patty yellowtail

    ok, lets edit his post and it should read like this, I tried to spear the followers with my crooked spear shaft and missed. Need stronger rubber bands!!! Thanks for the heads up. I did not know it was illegal. I never have gaffed a lingcod this way!!!

    Fish of a lifetime 600# Mako at the 267

    Congrats on the release! I know guys pick on guys who keep small sharks. My thought are if you are going to eat it, one small shark is better than killing generations in a breeding female. Plus, what would you do with 600lbs of any fish!
  146. oniedab


    Wow, I am just amazed at some comments on post. Can a guy just post he caught fish and had a heck of a time without getting ridiculed over something. This is a fish report site? Congrats on first catching fish anytime of the year and second being a few miles from some of the worlds greatest...

    Everingham SD Bay needs a customer service lesson

    I do not know, it is a toss up, your Avatar or his butt cheecks. I think I would have forgone the Lobster fishing and stayed home and done something else. Just saying! LOL!

    Dodomania 10/18

    Mexican limits are 5 of one species and 2 Dorado equals one limit. You would have been legal if, the other 5 fish were something other than Dorado or you went west, hit US waters and came about to the corner and home. LOL, but nice catch and report.

    New Lame-Anne

    Funny how big the ocean is until you find a paddy, hook up and then WTF, You got company To date, I have never fished a paddy some one else is on. Just will not do it, no matter how slow of a day.
  152. oniedab


    Who did the bait tank upgrade? Looks really nice.

    Playboy dorado!

    What no comments on the lack of ice? You guys are slipping at a chance!
  154. oniedab

    Late post for La Jolla YT

    Thank God you had some ice on the fish! Could not stand another popcorn thread on the virtue of icing or not icing fish! Nice catch.

    9/21 - We Were Due

    Funny how quickly we forget the bad days and are ready to go at it again! Fished two weeks ago out of Dana and SI for 1 YFT for two days. 130 gallons of gas on the boat and 6 hr tow to get to San Diego! Ready to go again!!!! I think :)
  156. oniedab

    Time to fess up about the tuna!!

    Fished Morro on the 18th for one 20lb Bluefin. Just North of the Donut. Caught on a Purple Cedar plug 300 plus feet behind the boat. Only fish caught that day for 6 boats trying. 65 degree, deep blue water. Birds, bait, kelp, etc. Just not much in the way of fish jumping our the lines. 52/25...

    8/30 dana point wide open YFT bite

    I will be if you do not go!!!!
  159. oniedab

    8/24 yellow fin boils all around us

    You need more ice. Your fish will come out so much nicer, not a dig but a suggestion. If you can see your fish in a box, you need more ice.
  160. oniedab

    5 weeks of build up to yesterday

    The nice thing about owning your own boat. You can fish what ever you want. Just do not post your failures. No one else will know!!!
  161. oniedab

    YFT @ 43 8/24/14

    Nope, their is no TUNA worth it. South swell and North wind is for an ugly situation. Stay home and enjoy a different kind of TUNA!

    8/20 Lightning Dance at the 302

    We were in the exact same area. Hit 302 a daylight put 5 lines in to start trolling, took off and not more than two minutes all 5 lines go off. Two guys on board oh shit! Through dead and live chum and water explodes. Drop one live Sardine in while other fish are hanging and it gets bit. 6 fish...

    Nice report, but what's up with the swimming pool in the boat?

    Out of Dana Point 08/08/14

    Just remember you have the option to make your own bait! Sabiki rigs and chum. Good luck!

    Need your help in finding this color fish trap!

    Try Big 5 . That color is my favorite for Albacore! Yes Albacore, you know that rare fish!!!
  169. oniedab

    Sliding up on the tuna 101

    Ditto on the above, chunk bait is better than no bait or using your last few pieces of live bait to chum a kelp paddy. I like tossing chunk bait on the way by a kelp paddy while trolling the first time by from a good distance from the paddy. Then swing back by and drift bait. Usually by this...

    Check out my butt

    Heck with all that work on cooking your butt. Just email me your address and I will pick all of it up for you and take care of it myself! Just kidding nice fish. Real simple recipe is mix mayonnaise with some dark mustard and a little horseradish to your liking .Place fish in glass pan, lay mix...

    7/27 - Say No to Combat Fishing

    Suggestion on your bait. Keep your lid open. I have a live well that looks like yours and years ago the bait guy told me to leave the lid open and your bait will do much better. The dark freaks them out and they roll on you. Try it , it makes a big difference. Nice pics and video.

    We brought knives to a gun fight BUT

    How far back did you run your lures and what speed did you troll at?
  174. oniedab

    baby mako

    it is pretty simple. Sharp teeth us wire. No teeth use mono. If his daddy would have shown up, you would of had a tug on the line and half a leader, no fish and no lure. I agree with kill the little ones and let the breeders go, that is if you plan eating them.

    Headed to the Morro Bay Area. I need some dope!

    You have two places to launch. Morro Bay or Avila Beach/Port San Luis Bay launch. Morro Bay be careful of the inlet as posted above. If you really want to see what it could look like on a bad day, go to U tube and put in Morro bay Coast Guard. Now Port San Luis is a hoist that picks your boat...

    Makaira 50SEa... I am so shocked

    It takes so much less energy to be nice than it does to be an ass! Nice job. Now how can I get your job, 15 day fishing trip and now Europe? Nice!

    Overnight Boat Recommendations

    Sounds like you need to first see if you can handle being on the ocean for a day without getting sick. I can only tell you is that if you go on a 1.5 day trip and get sick, you will wish you where on the 3 hour whale watching boat. They will not turn around for you. Then later in the year...

    Nice batch of fish. At least you are trying to please the bunch and are asking, most would not have even tried to ask for peoples suggestion! Nice touch.
