    Sucks about the bait, but obviously the sniper was getting it done, so oh well. Great story, loved the report, keep em coming!! Side note, how did you retrieve the sniper? jigging motion? slow reeling? etc

    First few days on the California waters

    Welcome to CA! You're catching on quickly! White swimbaits definitely work. A lot of guys here fish bait, squid being the mainstay for the seabass. Some guys also use heavier irons at times when anchored. Yellowtail are very popular with surface irons like a Tady 45 and live sardines/mackerel...

    Good times with your boy! Thanks for picking up the trash. How far out did you guys end up going? Do you have all the main fishing spots (the 9, the 267 , the 181, etc) marked on your GPS? Check the temp charts (tempbreak, fishdope) and maybe the fish dope reports for more intel....

    Catalina Frontside Report 8/8/18

    50lb would be great over structure/rocks if the fish would bite it. Sometimes the Catalina YT are so finicky you almost have to use 15lb to get them to bite. But this one seems to have ate 30lb fine. I guess give 50lb a try, but I may wonder if you say you got no bites... Just my .02 cents....

    300yrd soak, how much line was left for the fish to pull off the spool? maybe you had a 600yrd capacity reel?

    Where'd the fish go 6/5?

    Nice fish!! Maybe the bite activity has slowed after 500 boats were on the fish all weekend... They are just taking a break, waiting for the next onslaught this weekend :-)

    Tough to say even if you were in the same spot if that exact sheep would have ate your offering on the rod and reel. They call spearfishing 'FORCE FEEDING' haha

    Tuna, Cuda, Bass and Bombs - San Clemente Island 11/18

    Bass bum-rushing the boat? That sounds fun! Were you cruising about 30mph on the way home? What kind of fuel burn do you get at that speed? Rough in the morning, laid down in the afternoon. Thank God the afternoon winds didn't come up! Great report as always!!

    Where to bounce for Halibut?

    Halibut move in shallow for spawning in the summer/fall and are out deeper during the colder months. Halibut do love sand, but they love sand next to structure (rocks, etc). They also love squid beds. You may also consider hiring a 'guide' to go out with you that can maybe show you some...

    Well there are 2 techniques in that diagram. Technique 2 requires bolt cutters. Technique #1 is possible without. Not sure if this would have worked though... depending on how deep and what you would be 'ripping'

    Congrats! Weather will be crucial!! What is your speed cruising out to the grounds?

    Rpt.-Thur.-10-26-17 SCI Tails!

    What an absolute FUN day! (minus the hook in the thumb). I'm sure a set of bolt cutters will be on that boat next time! A friend recently had this happen and got the hook out with this string trick (tie line to the hook, etc), is this something that would have worked or no? See image below:
  275. RyanErb

    Channel Islands- how much bait for 2-3 guys?

    How hot is the bite? How bad are the sea lions? How much are you chumming? There is a lot to factor in... Some guys run out of bait some days, other days they have 3/4 of a tank when they get back to the harbor and have to dump it....
  276. RyanErb

    Island weather?

    This is the camera you should be watching. It is at Anacapa, which is at the furthest downwind on the channel, so it's actually probably the least amount of wind compared to something more at the Western end like Santa Rosa...
  277. RyanErb

    Island weather?

    I think it wasn't bad earlier this week, but yes, big wind/waves are coming. Call the landing ahead of time and find out if they are still planning on going out! What boat?

    3/4 day yft?

    my vote is the san diego. however, they continuously post that their day can be made in only one stop. high risk high reward kind of fishing. pray you are on a day they get a good stop. nothing is guaranteed but review their fish counts for the past month. Fish size 5-15lbs. Nothing too big...

    If you want to get really into it, you can start measuring your drag. You actually need a spring scale to test the amount of drag you have.

    9-182 July 19th. Wish I could use a speargun from the boat!

    Looks fun. Try 8lb test and a tiny hook next time if they aren't biting the sardine? I wonder if they would bite 2lb test? Would at least be an indicator they aren't biting purely because they can see the line... Also throw some live deans in there w/ no hook and see if they will eat those....

    Water break

    To answer your other question, I wouldn't focus on water temperature breaks for seabass. Water temperature can be important, for example you likely won't find a good bite in 52 degree water or 72 degree water. I would focus on finding the squid and then looking for fish on your meter. I would...

    So it has to be a Penn? I would go with the most expensive you can afford. I would think the more expensive rods are going to be better built and stronger. Remember, fiberglass flexes more and graphite can snap. What is your price range? 50 bucks? 100 bucks? 300 bucks?

    BFT/albacore out of SLO and/or nearby

    Albacore typically run in the fall around SLO. Watch the local landings for overnight specific trips. Albies have been absent for many many years though so until they come back, it's a no go. (maybe el nino changed things up) Watch the reports and hop on a trip once they return.

    Rpt.-Sat. 03-04-17 Local Bass Fising.

    Nice report as usual Cory! Now, the real question should be: What in the heck was Kurt doing different than you and Lal? (especially if you guys were using the same lure). Jigging more than you guys? Jigging slower than you guys? Fishing higher off the bottom? etc. Must have been somethin! haha

    Flock of birds, boiling fish, What lure do you throw?

    Good point... I have heard from many people they get on a bird flock with fish boiling and they cast 100 times and don't get bit once... So its not always a sure bet... Guess it depends on how finicky and hungry the fish are...
  515. RyanErb

    Flock of birds, boiling fish, What lure do you throw?

    Guess it will depend on the school and area. Throw out your picks for both!
  516. RyanErb

    Flock of birds, boiling fish, What lure do you throw?

    You roll up on a flock of birds, boiling fish, What lure do you throw? I really assume 'size' of lure will depend on bait size (if you can even identify what exact bait they are on). My point being, it seems like almost any of the following items in the poll could be bit in reality... Maybe...

    Custom Skiff

    Well.... It is 13ft... Which is pretty small (especially for something with a cabin...) but would be fine for the right guy. For the money I would think a lot of guys would opt for a 15ft boat, 17ft, etc. Also it says launch at Gaviota, but I doubt someone would want to try and beach launch...

    Skunked at PV 10/13, Any Tips?

    Never hurts to go to lighter line, if anything you should get more bites. If you lose a ton of fish, then start bumping it up until you stop getting bit. I would rather fish 15lb, get a lot of bites (and maybe lose a few) than fish 40lb and get no bites. Considering guys are fishing 30lb YFT...

    Skunked at PV 10/13, Any Tips?

    Reading conditions is the toughest thing to learn, I'm still learning myself. I have learned that current can be in ANY direction, parallel to the beach, or in and out, etc. Current just means moving water, and you nailed it when you said that the kelp stalks where pulled down a bit. That is one...
  584. RyanErb

    Skunked at PV 10/13, Any Tips?

    Regardless of the tide, was there any current? Marking any bait? How was the water clarity? Did you try bait? What lb test line were you using? Sometimes the fish just have more lock jaw than others but moving around to find the right conditions is going to be the most important....

    Cat - West End 9/16

    It wouldn't be a matter of better controlling the depth but maybe making it go deeper. The XRAP10 will swim at 10ft on its own. A weight in front would likely just make it go a little deeper. But if you want to go deeper, why not use a XRAP20 or XRAP30?

    Sunday SB Island quick report and rant

    Good feedback. Why not use a regular digital scale rather than the balance bar? I would think that would be more accurate when the boat is rocking in the swells.

    Well if the deckhands didn't create the drama, then they wouldn't have any drama. I doubt it is really the winner creating the drama. There's not much arguing of which fish weighs more...

    Were the yellowtail offshore or close to the island in the normal 80-120ft? Farnsworth? How many yellows did you guys end up with?

    20 Fathoms - Collection of Yellowtail fishing

    I agree, artificials are more fun! Good way to quickly explore a mark on the screen. It sounds like you rely on your meter a lot when there are not any surface signs (birds/boils). Does this imply that there are times when you may drive around for 4 hours simply staring at your meter and not...

    20 Fathoms - Collection of Yellowtail fishing

    Good info. Awesome scores all in US waters considering how many fish are usually at the nados. How much of your fishing is using a dropper loop on the bottom with live bait? I would assume this tactic is only really effective in the winter/early spring months and then as summer rolls in you...

    20 Fathoms - Collection of Yellowtail fishing

    Great tips. Looks like a lot of glassy water in your videos, you must fish mornings on select good weather days! What % of your fish were caught at the Coronado Islands vs La Jolla vs Offshore etc.?

    New Lo-An 9/13

    Sounds like a real fun trip, limits by 930am! Thanks for the report. Do you think the lack of fish on things other than bait was just because everyone was only fishing sardines? I mean why not, if they were working?

    SD North County Report (last 2 weeks-ish)

    Great report! Yes, I would even drop down to 15lb to see if you start getting bites. If you do, then you can slowly step up. A lot of fish this year have been line shy, bluefin, yellowfin, and yellowtail. Never hurts to try the light stuff just so you will know. Let us know your results!

    Going to SCI for Tuna, Military closure ???

    Have you navigated much at night before? That is a big trip for a rookie and could be dangerous. If the first time out of the harbor, it may make sense to do a scouting run prior during the daylight as well. Be safe, let us know what you decide.

    What kind of poppers?

    I think last year a lot of guys were using the Halco popper. http://www.meltontackle.com/products/halco-roosta-popper.html I think there is probably a lot of old threads from last year as well that talk about some different ideas.

    haha we'll find out. maybe he caught all those ones but only kept his limit and gave the others to some other passengers. I'm not sure on an overnight trip if they get basically a 2 day limit permit or not. I know that happens with some long range boats (but this was just an overnighter)

    East end yellows

    Some in Avalon outside the moorings. Thats where I have got mine. Also metered a bunch near the can dumps at the east quarry, but haven't tried to catch them.
