So it`s Cabo Wabo on Oct. 28th. Southern Avenue goes 12:30 PM till 2:00. Then Rick Estrim goes from 2:30 PM till 4:00. I`d suggest seeing Rick Estrim--- but it`s gonna be packed!!! So try to elbow in and hope someone leaves so you can sit down.
All acts on this cruise are amazing and Rick Estrim...
I`m at K-38 relaxing. About 7:30 tonight (9-5) I see a huge footprint just offshore. Got the binos out and saw fins 4' out of the water. Almost dark, but I think there were 3 of whatever they were. Pretty sure orcas. Going from left to right. Watch out Rosarito Beach!!!
Went with Cedros Sportfishing. Rosie and Jeff are great, it is really a great trip and so easy. Fishing had slowed from previous trips, but sometimes one fish can make a trip. Hope I can post a few pics here, the WSB went 54.8 lbs after bleeding. The yt was 25lbs. Caught with a Tranx 400 with 40...
I`ve got a ring motion activated camera on my garage. $200 plus $30 a year. I love the thing, not so much for security but to see what`s going on out there after dark. I now know we have a bobcat that cruises the hood!!
Tekota 700LC. The LC stands for line counter. Very handy for targeting fish 50' off the bottom. Also great for slowing your rig as you approach bottom, so you hang up less. Holds a ton of line and is fast.
Thanks Capt.-- Heard some good things about those units. Need to get down to the basics --- if I were on your boat, could you look at your fish finder and say with some degree of confidence (80 percent) that the marks on your FF were yellows? Thanks again
My 17 year old fish finder is more of a bottom finder. I see marks, drop down and have no idea if I`m going to get a salmon grouper or a yellowtail. Would sure like a FF that gives me some kind of confidence in what I`m seeing. Any suggestions for a fish finder that could separate the yellows...
Great report Cory-- congrats guys on a great day.
Darn colt snipers!! At least when it happened to Dave happened with a fish of dignity and honor, a calico bass!!! When it happened to me, it was a salmon grouper, the lowest of the low fish!! It added insult to injury and pain!!!
Buddy of mine went thru one of those sex changing operations. Said the breast enhancement wasn`t too bad. Getting new plumbing hurt but wasn`t that painful. But what really hurt was the brain shrinking machine!!!
Fished Thursday in dirty water down La Salina way. Got lucky and got a pole holder 19lb yellow in 50' on a squid tipped plastic. Released several nice lings, kept one that went 28". Took the ling into Bahia Cantiles and had Santos fry it up with his special batter, DELICIOUS!!!
Reminds me of the last time I saw Stan. He was laughing because he had just tagged Earl`s boat in La Salina with BD stickers!!! Tried to get him a beer, but he was on his way home. Sounds like he tagged some trucks too!!!
Me very happy!! Bet $10 on the moneyline at +190!! Yep-- made a total of $19, but at least didn`t lose $10. BTW a straight bet was Chargers +6 1/2 but minus 120!! So my $10 bet would have won only $8!!! Love the action, GREAT game!!
You can get rid of it for $100 (or $120 can`t remember). Best money I ever spent!!! Suffered 8 days of terrible pain, couldn`t sleep for more than 30 minutes. Went to an acupuncturist, took my shirt off, he did his thing for about 2 minutes (could barely feel anything), I layed there for 20...
When I`m in Mexico, and want to dial a Mex number, I just dial it. Add area code if needed.
BTW, I`v had my T-mobil for a year now. Love it!! My ATT bill was close to $120 when I changed. Now my bill is $55 every month and that gets me unlimited data. As long as I can get Telcel, I can connect...
Hey Amigo--- great having you back to Baja. I have to mention the awesome action we had for a long drift that was wide open on calicos, a cabezon, and a barracuda. Tails chewed in half by bass that thought they were triggerfish. Next drift, almost nothing!! And dinner at Charly`s----- two orders...
Thanks for the info on the nasal spray. Never heard of it and almost didn`t bother reading this thread because I thought I knew everything haha!!
I also use Stephens RX and have for years, ever since the tabs became unavailable. Their capsules work perfect for me except for dry mouth. Their...
Cory-- Great report!!
Lal-- Congrats on the WSB.
Cory--Beautiful pics of that YT. Love to hear the details.
Me-- stressed out from driving home from Bishop today. Very happy to kick back and read this report!!
I did the CBX last April and loved it. I read on Trip Adviser about it being tricky coming back so went very slowly and read all the signs. Also I almost threw out my boarding pass which would have had the same results and sent me outside to the cabs. So---- go slow, and keep your boarding pass...
Good try guys, at least you had a good day to work with, Tues. was blowing 15 k out of the south, totally messed up with crossed up white capping wind swells.
Cory--I predict after your next trip, you`ll be batting 200!!!
I was in SQ about 3 weeks ago. T-mobile worked perfect for a hot spot. $55 a month!!! As I write this, I`m in Rosarito Beach again using the phone for a hot spot. For some reason, Moviestar is bad for internet, but you can change carriers in your settings (IPhone 6).
Mike-- I recently had shingles and was experiencing nerve pain like your 2-7 pain. This went on for 8 days, and I did nothing because I thought it would go away on its own. Finally saw an accupunturist who relieved the nerve pain almost instantly. I couldn`t believe it and expected the pain to...
Looks like you guys found some toads. Thanks for the report and pics.
For the young kids just starting out, get a GPS and mark the harbor entrance. That fog can get you before you know it!!! And when you do know it, you will be so turned around, you won`t know east from south to west to...
Great report, had me going there (was hoping it was an opah) . I`ve seen it at the Fish market in Ensenada and thought it looked horrible, although the piece you bought looks great, and from what others have said, it is really good.
My favorite changes. Was a raider 125. Then a megabait. Then a Salas 6x jr. Currently a Colt Sniper (pink/blue). Nice thing about the Colt Sniper is it is easier to fish the yo-yo so your arm will last a bit longer.
WTG guys! Cory-- great report and pics, congrats on the yellow!!
Strange about those seals. They have a new MO, taking rock fish down and breaking you off. I have lost some $20 lures lately to them. Tried to free spool and still got cut off! It`s a real problem, they need some re-education and...
Hey Cory, that was a great couple of 1/2 days!! Thanks for the report, always a pleasure to have a good first mate who is so helpful on Toad Hall.
Loved the pics, loved the report. had leftover fish and chips for breakfast today!!!
Last evenings sunset-----
Last week I went out to make bait. Brown macs were everywhere. Water 75. The macs were coming to the top to get air. I was using a cheap rig and in 20 minutes had 1 bait. Then I got the rig hung up on kelp and it broke off. I tried a different rig and WOW what a difference!! Five minutes later I...
IT was Saturdays show about 8:06. Go to the shows archives, and you can hear Marks` report. Link to show--
Marks` report starts about 4 mins into the report. Your report is talked about around 630...
Was there at the same time with a family group of 11 adults and 1 3 year old. Stayed at the Marriott near the marina. The house looks like the way to go!!
BTW we flew out of TJ for around $250 round trip, saving some money to spend later! Thanks for the report!
Right on Cory, glad you made it down. Sounds like a trip I had a few weeks ago down there. Yellows chasing the small chovies and a no go on iron.
Mike is taking good care of everyone here, bummer about the no shows!
You do need the book to fly from Mex back to US. But the card is fine for Mex domestic.
Last week I got my Mex visa in Ensenada. The poster on the immigration office had a picture of a USA Passport card, saying it was good to get a visa. I got the visa showing only the card. The card number...
Found these guys a few years ago. I am a sea sicky, big time. These capsules work as good as the patch but with few side effects (drink water). Also their service is fast and easy. Less than $2 a pill.
Remember?????? I`m still in tears remembering that YT I had to release!!!! Good luck Sunday, I hear Lal doesn`t let you keep fish either hahaha!!!
Cory----- hoping to get out down south maybe even this afternoon for a few hours. Hope I can get you a good report!
I got ripped off for mine at the Fred Hall Show. Paid $45, came home and saw the real price!! :mad:
Big learning curve YouTube vids help, showing how to recalibrate it-- put on level surface and then go to bottom left with throttle and upper left with tilt. Wait till the blue light stops...
Well I have eaten some chewed on fish and I`m still alive. Most times the seal grabs the YT by the tail. If you can get it back, the fish has scratches on its tail and nothing more. Seams harmless to me. Recently one seal took the breast/stomach off a fish that I got back. I never had second...
It`s just crazy off the charts fishing now. I thought it was good 2 weeks ago with the moon full, but kick it up 2 weeks to the new moon, and kick the water temp up 2 degrees and it just gets better!! No one saw this coming, so who can say what the spring will bring?
Mike-- great fishing with...
Hey Cory-- great report, felt like I was there haha!!!! Great to relive those days and fishing sessions through your text and photos. The fishing is CRAZY off the charts now! Let`s hope it continues and we kill some more. BTW went to Paradise Cove and they cooked up some fish and chips with the...
Hey thanks so much. I didn`t check my numbers so had no idea I won and then won again!! Lots of happy people across the country who drew that 4/4 score!!!
Again thanks so much, I have no idea what I won, but promise to put it to good use!!!
Hasta, Bill Fisher, aka Bornfisher
I thought not kicking a field goal with 6 seconds left in the half was a terrible call. But it turned out to be genius. I saw them line up for that last (pick) play and thought what are they doing. Empty backfield, 2 receives on right side oh nooooooooooooooo................. don`t throw the...
My engine did the same thing. My mechanic came to the boat, pulled a plug and all that. Then when I was turning the engine over for him, he says "Hear that? It`s the ignition". What he heard I don`t know, it sounded the same to me. The ignition had 6 wires and he pulled one and I turned it over...
Loved the vid. Nice yellow and big knothead. Had a day maybe 3 weeks ago where I won three fights with the seals with no damage to the fish. Since, the seals have beat me about 10 to 1. What I hate is not only losing the fish, but the $10 Salas!!!
Oh--- Tues. a seal grabbed one and I chased it...
Hey Dennis---Yipee for the cookout!!
The old trash fish story had you and Kurt on a patty with lots of yellows on it. Kurt is loving it until you ruin it and say"we`re leaving these trash fish to go get tuna". Got some fish stories for you Dennis, some involving Kurt who I think about all the...
Last Friday they actually had old #7 tractor working. The operator swings out a huge heavy bucket, lets it sink and drags it back. Probably gets 5 wheelbarrows a round, but he was at least doing something. Worked up a big sand pile in 3 hours.
Now I just hope the tractor doesn`t break down or...
Sunday on LTHU----------- 1090 am radio, 7am to 9am!!!
Join Pete Gray, “Rock Cod” Rick Maxa and their special expert guests each week for the latest fishing information.
Saturday 5/31- Dan Ostrosky from Yamaha Outboards
Sunday 6/1- Captain Mark Gillette from the Eclipse
Some times such a minor thing will get you, and you never see it coming. I had to get towed in a few weeks ago. Engine would start, but stall after about 2 seconds. Brought my mechanic down to the boat. He began fooling around (pulled the plugs and stuff), then one time when he turned over the...
Victor is a great captain who knows the area and how to fish it. Conditions have to be right at La Salina just to exit the harbor and return, but it sure can be great fishing. Congrats, and thanks for the report and pics!!
Looking at my bank statement, on Nov. 1st, I pulled 6000 pesos out of Santnder (sp?), and was debited $461.39. Divide 6000 by 461.39 and you get 13.004183!!!!! Or about 13 to 1, with no commision!!! :hali_olutta:
Call Louie Prieto---- 626-226-7908

Jeeeesh Sherm---- hope you have been reading the Drudge Report lately--- the "Weiner" headlines are just classic, and your "try to work it in" would be a riot!!
Wish the best for you, give `em Hell, screw the press, and just go 1 term!!
Earl- thanks for the news about Kurt, thank God he made it.
I talked to Doug Monday and as usual he warned me about the danger and told me to be safe.
I`m in shock, mad as Hell but numb.
Hoist a few Coors lights for Doug, a great friend and fisherman.
Got a phone call today and heard a friend was exiting the "harbor", capsized his boat and drowned. Two others are in a hospital in Ensenada.
I got this info. second hand so I don`t want to give any details until I verify. But I do know this---- Don`t even think about fishing down there. There is...
Doughnut and milk, followed by granola bar and trail mix, and either a sandwich or shrimp ceviche. Cut oranges are good and in Aug., watermelon. I don`t know why, but it always seems like a dilemma. Oh and gatorade because scopace dries me out.
Get a prescription and mail it in to a compound pharmacy. You`ll have it in a few days, or if you live near Costa Mesa, just pick up. These guys were great on the phone and their scopace capsules are the real deal----
Two good things last night--- one was Baker showing how Alonso caught a fowl ball and fell over the railing in slow motion. The other was switching to the Dodgers Giants game---- what a game!!!
About Baker, he described the catch like this-- " Yonder caught the ball, stopped and looked over the...
Hey Capt. Lal and Cory----------- Great call. Mother Wind has been a little tough this spring, coming from all directions. Can`t change it, just gotta take it and hope one of these days, the predictions will be right on!
First-- to the victims of this tragic accident, RIP.
Pat McDonell had done some great reporting here---- First part---
And the next page---
Going south, go to San Ysidro. The new crossing is wonderful, the visa process is simple. The roads are well signed, just stay to the right.
North bound, pick your poison! Do not cross Sunday and try to avoid Monday. But don`t sweat it too much-- the wait is worth the trip. Have a great time!!
Things just got better at Petco Park! A new Ballast Point beer garden is opening and not only that, The Padres will win the West and go on to win the WS!!!
Bummer about Headley and Grandal, but great for Ballast Point!!
The Gaslamp was going off-- huge street party but it cost $40 to get in. The Field had a long line, wound up at the Blarney Stone for green beers and Irish stew. Lots of very short green skirts down there and some very tipsy lasses.
Hey Fisher3, wish we would have cruised by and said "Hi".
Cory- The next day (Thurs.), I was at my casa watching the conditions. At 9;45 all was calm. Fifteen minutes later, it was a mini gale with some bad whitecaps. Now today, about 1PM when I was at Del Mar, it was glass to La Jolla...
I love my Tekota with a line counter. Hooked some BIG shit (WSB, BSB, and YT) and the reel handles it great. Plus you can see stuff on the meter and just drop your jig right on them. And it`s really fun to see how much line you have out when reeling in a fish.
Louie-- Great seeing you out on the water.
I want to acknowledge your information and sharing it so others can pull on some beautiful fish. Keep those reports coming, and I`ll be stumbling in the bar soon (I hope).
Again, thanks for the info, so Cory and I could score.
Wow, that trip was awesome! And now I`m enjoying the fruits of our labor with sticky rice, soy, and wasabi. Forgot about the beating coming home, only remember the mono on my reel being stretched and loading up. And then fighting a fish in deep water(138') with NO structure!! Perfect!
Read the book and there were so many people out to sea that had no idea what was coming. Coast Guard rescue is soooo prepared, but in these conditions, they are at their limit, and sometimes over it. But they respond and some die trying to do their duty.
Wishing everyone on the east coast the...
Hey Earl-- Last time I saw Stan was many years ago. It was down at La Salina and he told me " I just tagged Jo Mama with BD stickers". Than he laughed, and we laughed. Tried to get him to have a brew, but he was heading north.
Dang what a wonderful person. I bet he died from an enlarged heart...

Looks like scopace and the patch might be coming in a nasal form soon. Whoooopeee.........let`s hope so---
NASA will work with privately owned Epiomed Therapeutics of Irvine, California, on the nasal spray, which has been shown to be a fast-acting treatment for motion sickness.
