    NOAA news: BFT bag limit - 2 fish per day will start on July 30, 2015

    How does limiting non-commercial fisherman who rarely catch more than 2 bluefin anyway protect the fishery? Another poor decision that we should be happy about? You guys that are supporting the new limit on sport fishing can report back in a 5-10 years about how much the bluefin have come...

    Albies/Yellowfin 7/14/07

    Alright, alright, I'm nailed for not knowing my fish yesterday. I deserve it! I edited the post to correct my error. :imdumb: I didn't pay that much attention since no other yellowfin had been caught this year. As noted by Double Z (killing me brother LOL) I didn't give the respect to the...

    Albies/Yellowfin 7/14/07

    Fished the my friend Chad's new boat today...28' Albin...sweet boat! There was Chad, his cousin David, Mike and myself. We went south of the 302 towards the 371 and managed a nice yellowfin at 6:30 a.m. (purple/blk sevenstrand ran long). Later, just southwest of the 371 we got a single...

    Thanks everyone for the replies. Bravo 6, there were a lot of boats hooked-up at the 302 when I arrived. That bite lasted for a few hours in the early afternoon. As you said, it will be a parking lot this weekend being so close to home. kenfishing, I didn't hear much about the butterfly...

    Fished with Tom and Mark today. Departed SI at 4:30 headed for the 371. At dawn,we were two miles short and decided to drop two trollers in while getting the bait rods rigged...didn't get a chance to finish rigging as one of the trollers went off (blk/purple sevenstrand tuna feather). Tossed...

    Need one for 7/5 Tuna hunt

    Duramax, I don't think the offer to fish implied that being a drunk and playing with sharp knives and hooks was o.k. on my boat. Without defining the exact amount of alchohol one should consume before driving home from the ramp, I thought my posting simply suggested that if someone happens to...

    Mexican Rockcod on the South 9 1/3/07

    John, Great report. I've been looking for something a little different on the rockfish jigs and I'm not familiar with "200 gm Shimano Long Butterfly jig, the other was caught on a 200 gm River2Sea Rock Jig"...where do you get these? I don't recall seeing them in the local shops..maybe I'm...

    Does Rockfish season close Dec. 1 or Dec 31

    Point Loma 11/11/2006

    Fished Point Loma again today. The wind was up, which made the drifts fast and difficult to stay on the bottom where the fish are...even with a drift sock. Fished 3 oz. leadheads w/swimbaits and squid trailer. Most of the fish were deeper than usual (117 feet). We kept 12 fish as pictured...

    Point Loma 11/05/2006

    mcalab, The fish fry recipe is easy. I use the Japanese bread crumb called "Panko". You can buy at Vons, etc. I add cayenne pepper to the bread crumbs with a little Lawry's season salt. I use vegetable oil to fry the fish, but I put a little fresh garlic in it for extra flavor. Coat...

    371 Area...late report

    aclozer, good luck out there!!! I haven't heard too much over the last few days. I'm wondering if the cooler water will push those dodo's the very least the yellows will still be there. Looking forward to hearing your report! Thanks for the reply. Robert

    Where to get a blue water set-up?

    Fishing Addict, Maybe you should stay in school until you're capable of understanding what you's something you might understand FUCK-OFF DICKHEAD.

    C-Goat, It'll be a while before the name changes..I already get a lot of wierd comments at the launch ramps. Like a friend of mine always says "it's got to be long enough to get a bend in it"...ha, ha!! Thanks for the reply. Robert

    371 Area...late report

    Headed to the 371 and southwest areas this weekend August 19. Fished a little and got a couple of small yellows...decided to jump in and see what was going on under the water. There were dodo's all over on two separate patties...must have been close to 100 swimming in a circle around...

    Where to get a blue water set-up?

    I will third James and Joseph. I have dove with Mark and he is a fish killing machine...better to receive advice from people who are actually doing the sport. He has all the Riffe gear plus others at the store so you can get a flavor for what suits you best before making a buy choice. The...

    P.V Fishing with Josh 12/28 and 01/02

    Like most us, I read Josh’s weekly updates on the fishing in Puerto Vallarta and it drove me crazy. I finally contacted him and planned two fishing days, December 28 and January 2. I had difficulty finding a reasonable place to stay due to the holidays. His wife Catherine was extremely...
