    06/20 – Offshore – BFT Skunk – YT Saves the Day

    Short Story: Launched from Mission Bay, Hit the 302, 371, 425, N. Upper Hidden towards the Upper Finger looking for signs of BFT. Nothing promising on the water or the meter so we never broke out the kite gear. Fished several paddies and found 2 paddies with decent grade YT willing to play...

    Best Day Ever...

    Bored at home... Decided to write a novel about my day yesterday. The launch ramps are open locally, DFG is out too, go quarantine yourself on a skiff if you can. This should probably go to the Chit-Chat section but we did catch a fish, so it's a report... I've loved fishing as far back as...

    10/30 -Thunderbird Record Bluefin

    Hey guys and gals, I'm on the Davey's Locker email distribution list and got this email yesterday. Based on the email, this is the biggest BFT caught on the Thunderbird at 314 pounds. I'd say there's still a good chance of landing a super cow this season. This guy certainly got his money's...

    Short version: Fished a few miles south west of the 425, 69 degree water, great conditions (mostly small 2-3' mixed swell with...infrequent 5' sets with really long periods so no issues there - wind was not blowing too much or not at all until maybe noon), flylined dines, pretty steady bite...

    Value Opinions for Old Rods in my Garage

    What's up BD'ers, Over the years I have picked up a bunch of older rods from garage sales mostly. At first these were the rods I used and over time I slowly upgraded to newer old rods (also found at garage sales). I have not been able to justify buying new composite rods because my rods work...

    To provide some background, I have never had the opportunity to fish Baja Mexico until my good fishing buddy Benny hit me up about 2 months ago. Benny and I have been fishing pretty hard for the last two years on his 20’ Triton Center Console. We have fished many of the local spots as far...

    FHS Long Beach Tickets?

    I haven't seen any discounts on tickets to the LB show floating around this year like in the past. Last year, someone sent me that $3 Progressive coupon and posted it here to share the love. I know it was only $3 but hey...3 bucks is 3 bucks. Last year we saved enough between me and my...

    10/14 – 9 Mile Bank/302 area

    Got the call from @Benny Mora and decided to make a run offshore to fish half-day on Sunday to see if we could enjoy some of the Skipjack action that has been reported lately. Got ahold of Glenn @Hismosa and he was up for the run too. Met up at Benny’s house in Corona at 3am and we were off to...

    08/25 La Jolla

    After fishing mostly offshore over the last few months with @Benny Mora, I was looking forward to an easier day fishing inshore, especially because the offshore bite seemed to be pretty far south with most reports showing Skipjack with smaller grade YFT mixed in were being caught. Also, from...

    08/18 – La Jolla, N9, S. of the 209 – Big Dodo

    Short Story: Got lucky and learned a valuable lesson after forgetting to put in the plug. Once that alarm was handled, we launched out of Mission Bay, bought a half scoop of lively dines, made a bunch of macs, and hit La Jolla for no love. Decided to pick up and head off shore after an hour...

    8/4 – A Couple of Dodos and a Small Yellowfin - 302/371

    Short Version: Found a small paddy @ the 302 loaded with Dorado and couldn’t get them to go on the flylined mack/dine, small hook buried in chunk, colt snipers, small lazer minnows, surface iron, or on the popper. Decided to leave and troll to the next spot. As we troll past the paddy, we get...

    Clamp for Lexa 300

    I found a nice custom 7' deckhand style glass rod on craigslist a month or so ago. The grip is the cork material. After checking it out I figured it would be a really good bass rod. There's no indication of what kind of blank it is that I can tell but it doesn't matter because I like the rod...

    Kelp Paddy Tips

    Hello fellow BD'ers... I have been fishing pretty regularly this summer and have come across plenty of nice paddies offshore. Regrettably, I havent got much off them. At first I thought the paddies werent holding and while that could have been true, I am finding it hard to believe that nobody...
