    Any reports from today?

    Yeah, it was pretty bumpy out there, I happen to be aboard a 90' yacht, but was thinking to myself I wouldn't want to be in my skiff out there.. The little purple jet head was the hot ticket on the troll. Had a couple doubles and a triple on a cedar and a mex flag feather out there.

    Any reports from today?

    Hit the 425 after a late start with a good showing of sport boats and a few PB's, got a small yft right off the bat on the flyline and another lost, then nothing. Saw a couple bent rods, but not many. The fleet moved on and we trolled towards the 302 and picked up several good sized skipjack...

    Sign of things to Come?

    Just wanted to report a welcome sight on the south 9 yesterday, a good sized marlin cruising along. In March. Threw a couple of macs his way, but never could get in front of him before he sank out. Beautiful conditions and 60 degree water on the outside, 56 degrees coming out of the bay...

    Little late of a report, but went out monday to the whistler and back up towards Point Loma on the outside of the kelp looking for bonito or skippies for my 11 year old. Made a stop on puddling bait and soaked a couple of baits, engine was acting up so I shut it down while I dicked with it...

    We were out yesterday as well, conditions were ideal. Same thing, more skippies than you could catch, with yft mixed in but much more picky than the skippies. Slow start, but found a pair of paddies with 4 molas on one that came to check out the boat. As soon as they left, the skipjack just...

    Good job. Took my 11 year old with me on 'the guys' trip to LA Bay earlier this year, I think he grew up several years in a week. Now he's driving the boat, puling nets and asking when he can go fishing again.. Set the hook early.

    Single or Tandem axle trailer?

    The only argument I can think of is: single axle + blown tire = Super F-ed. Dual axle + blown tire = extra trip time.

    Golden Reef #'s / Puertocitos

    Forgot about the slimey part.. Also, if the tide bottoms out or close to it, you definitely wouldn't want to get the trailer tires down over the drop off of the ramp, if it's still the same, there was about a foot and a half drop from the concrete to the sand.

    Yeah, it was fun to play 'how much did it weigh??..' while we trolled on. I've got no experience with large tuna, but it sure didn't feel anything like the 40# bft I've caught before. It was pretty much doing whatever it wanted on that big gold reel.

    187 FISH is gone forever!

    I was kind of under the impression that the 'pop' blew the hatches open, and subsequently fire was coming out.. Perhaps the fuel vapor was already present, and the ignition spark ignited it all. If this is the case, the blower might have saved the day..?

    First Dorado bite at BoLA

    I'll second the line/hook recommendation. I lost three as well on ringed circles. The fish swallowed the bait, had one line cut off, and two pull free without hooking. Went to J hooks and was able to set the hook at the lip better. Fished 40# spectra on the Lexa and 40# mono on the Saltist.

    BOLA YFT/Marlin

    Think it was two years back in june, we saw at least 3 or 4 marlin (striped I think, probably #70-100) while we were fishing the LA Bay zone, all of them were south around the corner of Las Animas. Tried to bait a couple of them at fairly close range, but couldn't get any biters. Cool to...

    50# rigs for sure. Just to throw it out there, make sure to bring a light bass rod-ish setup, just in case you're stuck on shore for some reason (wind, hangover, etc..) and make the time to hop in the truck and go explore and shore fish. Fill a backpack with beer and light tackle and have fun..

    Best way to get to TJ Airport

    The crossing from TJ is easy as well, cabs are waiting right when you walk through the border, $15-20 to the airport. Coming back the taxi drops you pretty much at the end of the line to cross back over.

    Question for those of you who fly out of TJ

    You might want to check out of LAX. Long drive, but the flights are generally a lot cheaper than from SD. Maybe not as low as out of TJ, but worth the tank of gas.
  158. Ib1

    Question for those of you who fly out of TJ

    Everything is pretty smooth from SD-to TJ airport, and easy getting to the border. It's just the wait at the border than can be a pain. That said, I'm going with the 2 and 5 year olds, wife and mom in law that route to La Paz in march.. The wheelchair may be a hassle, but not undoable.

    One thought, (only academic, as I don't have any personal experience with them as a novice reloader) but perhaps those loses are from relatively low speed loadings or long range, the barnes bullets seem to need pretty good speed to open, but also seem to have the penetration to just keep going...

    One crazy night (with a little bit of fishin) CDM/NPH

    Used to keep my Skippy in NPH, and that place does seem to attract the most puckered assholes. If those bastards had their way, they would have guard towers and attack dogs keeping all the riff raff off "their" coast. Already have a good start with the concertina wire along the south coast...

    Way Inshore-Curisoty Question?

    Donax clams. Way back when, the real locals used to boil em up by the hundreds, as you can see, that wouldn't make much. Find em in archaeological sites all over the county. Tis a good sign that the beach is somewhat healthy though, common in the low tide zones down here in IB and the Strand.

    Have to say I was totally stoked with the grab rails Justin made for me, fast, high quality, who could ask for more. I even just gave him the dimensions via email, and had it within 2 weeks from the east coast to San Diego. His price was several hundred bucks cheaper than a local fabricator...
