    A few of you had messaged me that for many BDers who’re flying into Homer, it’s not often that it’s more than a group of 2. So I would run with as few as 2. It would be a very private and cozy trip. I’m also lowering the rate for the BD brothers, and sisters. Here’s the new rate: Full day 6...

    My 2014 Honda 225 won’t pee

    Ran up to 2 1/2 minutes and then alarm came on and turned it off. Pee water was warm about 5 seconds before. Wednesday when cooling was from the bottom, muffs and trough, alarm came on in 30-45 second and no peeing at that time

    Neither pressure or temp gauge on the dash. I agree, they should have squeezed me in. I also told them I wanted to go fishing yesterday.

    White flesh lobster meat. Not cooked yet

    Interesting! For Alaskan halibut, color of the raw meat is similar to spiny lobster but when it’s all white like this, we call them ‘chalky’. It had been attacked by enough parasites to cause the color change. It’s still edible but we usually throw it away.

    New Lo-An bigger grade on day and a half

    One of the other boats ran into a school of 100#+ and only landed 2 out of 20 because they weren’t prepared. I would suggest a 100, 80, 50-60, 40, 30. Fluoro a must and 2/0 to 5/0 circles

Lost 10+ from tangles and tackle problem. I loosened my drag to let it swim way out and then tightened it when it...

    Coronado CharterMaster Que about fisherman with green card only

    Most of the time, green card holders can enter US by car with just the card and not the passport but supposedly passport is mandatory. Mexican fishing license purchasing doesn’t need a passport. They didn’t even need any ID from me.

    La Salina 2/17

    Count me in. So much closer than Castro and in a nice CC rather than a panga. Don’t wanna fish 2 days?

    La Salina 2/17 angler needed

    Pretty good sized fish for shallow water fishing. Didn’t even have to use any bait. My Castro trip for this weekend crashed Was working on going Tuesday to fish Wednesday and Thursday. That’s falling apart too

    Take me fishing here. I take you fishing Homer AK

    I fish all summer almost everyday for Halibut and Salmon in Homer AK in my 28’ but don’t have a boat in San Diego. I get my limit of 2 Halibuts everyday. So if you have room for SoCal or Baja trips, I like to go with. I’ll do the same up North. I usually throw back anything under 30” but not all...

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    Vin from El Segundo won’t be coming after all for the weekend. He said he’ll be free again after Monday. Anyone prefer going Monday or Tuesday for a midweek trip or next Fri for weekend?

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    I just called Castro. The captains available are victor, Alfredo and Jorge. Waldo who I fished with last had passed away and Edgar no longer works out of there. They’re 26’ pangas. Can take up to 5 people $500 for 2 days so that’s $250/day, for 5 people. Cabana has 6 beds and it’s $60/night for...

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    As of now, Vin from El Segundo wants to go also as long as we have a good captain. So that makes 3. Michael, are you coming and can you get a good captain and arrange lodging? I can call Castro also Most pangas can take more than 4 so we can keep that in mind if more people want to go

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    That’s right, 19th is Presidents’ Day. Then we can come back leisurely. I believe if it’s early Monday or late Sunday, crossing the border is not as bad. Most people come back Monday afternoon or evening. Also where’s Salina? You’ve room for extra person?
  517. Billy L

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    Let’s plan the trip here. It’s easier than pm or call or text. Weekday or weekend panga rates is not much difference especially when it’s split by 4. Possible trip 1. I can go as early as this Friday early afternoon. We can stay Friday and Sat evening and come back Sunday evening after fishing...

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    Wow! Small world. I’ll be in Homer before you and will be there until labor day. I slip a 28’ in the harbor and I fish almost everyday. Looks like we’ll fish together down south and maybe up north also. I use my little Searunner for snagging Sockeyes across the harbor

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    So you’re a charter captain who works at Castro’s? I think Waldo was who I fished with last time. What kind of outboard do you have?

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    I I called them last week about split charter and supposed to hear back coming Monday. I’ll call again and try to get exact price on panga and hotel.

    Want to fish Camp Castro for 2 days. Looking to share panga

    I fished there 3 years ago and hooked 15 Lings in one day. Like to go and looking for someone to share cost of panga. I can fish any day of the week. Anyone one wants to go? It’s 60 miles south of Ensenada. It has hotel and cabanas also Very low cost

    New Year New List! Looking for nice people to take fishing this year who loves to fish!

    In Alaska, if they’re 30” or smaller, I throw them back. I know it’s keeper after 22” here. I would leave 6:30am and go 6-9 miles into Kachemak Bay and get done by 11 am with my pick of 2. I know in San Diego, it’s practically front page news catching a Halibut. I love to go on the tournament...

    Trade Halibut fishing(in my 29' at Homer AK) for fishing in your boat in Vancouver B.C.

    The deck is so packed with the personal stuff or I would fish Vancouver and then follow your suggestion for Prince Rupert.

    Trade Halibut fishing(in my 29' at Homer AK) for fishing in your boat in Vancouver B.C.

    Thanks for the suggestion. You're right. I'm in the process of getting airbags. That's will raise the truck and gonna use an 8" drop inverted. Then it will be level which I was told by the trailer shop who made it that then it won't stress out the torsion axles.
