    8-17 Oceanside

    Tough day. Valve issue on bait tank this morning, so we changed gameplan and trolled X-Rap 40’s and a daisy chain out to 18 miles NNW of O’side, zero action. Water temp was cold inside (68) and warmer water on the outside, maxed at 70.75. While on the troll, the biggest flyer I’ve ever seen...

    Rubber Band-Torpedo Sinker Rig

    BD’ers- I plan on trying the ol’ rubber band-torpedo setup this summer. Normally, I’d have the reel in gear with the bait “in zone”. Anyone ever go freespool with clicker on to give the fish a couple seconds to run?...

    Skonked

    Amigos- This one goes into the “Any day fishing is better than the alternative” bin. Headed out this morning with a stop at the O’side bait monger for some small to medium sardines with a nice cure on them. Best bait of the season so far. The plan was to head south of the powerplant to try to...

    5-25 Report

    Headed out this morning unsure of what we’d find after a week of wind mix-mastering the water column. Worked the Box Canyon area hard from 7 to 40 fathoms. Water temp was a turbid 57.5 close to shore, clear green 64+ outside. Lots of 6” macks shallow, but couldn’t find any YT on the chase...

    Cool Weather

    BD Mates, I spoke with an acquaintance yesterday whose husband is a meteorologist. He said that this cool weather pattern would trend through the year. As I recall there was another year (2008 maybe?) when the weather was weird like this. But I wasn’t fishing much then. For those of you...

    4-27 Carlsbad/Leucadia Nearshore Report

    Headed out of O’side Saturday morning and made a beeline for the north edge of the Swami’s MLPA to drift some squid for WSB/Hali’s. Large schools of dolphin everywhere from just south of the pier to the MLPA, some feeding, some just playin’. Metered a fair amount of bait all morning, but I’m not...

    Anchor Rig for $20

    Amigos- I’ve got 100’ of nice 1/2” braided nylon rode (spliced), 15’ of 1/4” galvanized chain, shackles, and a small (5 lb, I think) galvanized Danforth anchor. Had it for a year on my CC, never dropped. Just upgraded my gear and no longer need it. Will be at Del Mar Fred Hall on 3-30. $20...

    Box o’ Rocks

    Nice bunch of reds Saturday from 230’ in the Box Canyon area. For perspective that’s a 2/0 Mustad live bait hook in the jaw of the top fish. Water was green and clean, 57F. I was a spazz on the drift execution though, of the 9 or so drift sets, every single one was a different direction...

    SSVI Reel Recommendation

    Hi Folks- My bride, who loves to fish, can’t cast with a conventional reel. Looking for a spinner that she can throw a colt sniper to boiling fish some distance away from the boat. Must be able to handle tuna to 80# or so. I’d like to go with a SSVI6500 with 40# braid, but thinking this may be a...
