    O side Carlsbad. Green water dead bite

    Oceanside harbor mouth gets sketchy. Have seen more than one boat get pushed up into the jetty, including a sailboat completely out of the water pushed up onto the rocks somehow. I also knew a guy named Tom, a rod wrapper who hoop nets a lot,(maybe some of you know him) whose boat got pushed up...

    1 for 2 on the Bluefin

    If your 130lb braid was under tension from 250+lb fish and 30+lbs of drag, and another very large bluefin happens to hit your line??? As in, just swim into it...I'm not an engineer and don't have any data about spectra under tension, but I think it might go "ping". What if your line is being...

    That's one for the books.

    Looked like a sea hare to me. I add tropical ones in people's aquariums when they have a hair algae problem, they mow down soft, stringy or hairy algae. The ones here get huge! If you look at them from the side they look like a rabbit hence the name "sea hare".

    Pacific Queen March 13th-15th

    I use owner mutu, down to #4 and mustad j hooks for smaller stuff. I've never straightened a hook fishing live bait and I love how affordable mustad's old school hooks that we've all been using our entire lives are. And about when to switch to low gear, that totally depends on the situation...

    This guy doesn't want to hear anyone's concerns or advice. His "flying gaff" is a zip tied on 12/0. As someone who has spear fished, I know that float would not stop tuna in 100lb class, let alone a 300lb mako! Maybe if you were able to get it in the gills, good luck with that.

    Tribute 10/28

    You think the tribute is a POS because of bunk size? I've never been on a long range boat so I feel like all the boats have pretty similar bunks. In my opinion it's a great boat for its size and its in nice shape. I don't know when it was overhauled but it gets up and goes too and I feel like...

    Use of Poppers

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the halco poppers are not through- wired...I don't know if I would throw one at big BFT but I'm sure local YFT would be fine. The yo zuris aren't a bad price and you can get them pre-rigged with 130 fluoro and crimps for $4 more.

    Rpt.-09-11-16 Sun. SCI Missed On the targeted species, but!

    Nice report Corey and yeah it was rough out there, I was at the 182 in my 17' cc and it was too much, had to head in almost as soon as we got out there.

    Rpt.-Sat.- 1.5 day trip on the Relentless.

    Hey Cory, I'm the other angler who has gone on all those trips and been skunked all season. I jumped on another boat the morning we got back from this trip (Who needs sleep?) for nothing, again! I have two more trips lined up on the relentless this season. Great boat and crew. Captain Mikey...

    RE: great white at La Jolla

    Sharks inhabit the ocean, even ours! It is small! I've seen sharks, I had a GW swim underneath me in la jolla when I was 18 or 19 that must have been 12' long (I know, not big for a white but still very close to me). I got out of the water as soon as it passed and called it in with the...
