    Water colder than last year at this time. Also been a little more windy which dirties up the water.

    Charter Fleet Code of conduct

    Sportfishing regulations are already limited enough. The fishing is just fine, the 3/4 day boats are catching 200 yft a day right now. Plenty sustainable. While we’re at it let’s open the MLPA’s back up. Those fuckin homeguard yellowtail and seabass know it’s a sanctuary.

    Limited load boat under 200 in socal?

    I said their normal load should be closer to 25 than 51. I didn’t say it should be 25.... and why? Maybe because 51 people who all have to fish the same side of the boat isn’t too awesome.

    Limited load boat under 200 in socal?

    Their normal load should be closer to 25 not 51. Sure they can carry 51, it’s a 3/4 day boat that won’t be able to sleep 51. Unless the guys are sleeping on the deck.

    The problem is not everyone would be using a mono top shot. People will still use spectra to short flouro. I actually prefer a 20-40 yard mono top shot, however I don’t do it most of the time because I don’t want to get sawed off by a noob using straight spectra.

    Quick 1..2..3...Halibut Bounce Ball refresher...Thx

    What's wrong with my handling of fillets?

    No because I cut it out and put it in the fridge wrapped in paper towels. Even before I did this and I would see no “blood” in the bag when defrosting in it, it definitely was marinating in its own fishy juices. The proof is in the taste of the fish I thaw now.
  487. yakdout

    What's wrong with my handling of fillets?

  489. yakdout

    What's wrong with my handling of fillets?

    I also would not want to thaw fast. Or thaw in the original bag the fish was frozen in. On a plate, in fridge, wrapped in paper towels has given me much better results than leaving in the bag. That’s also what is recommended by 5 star fish processing. Id like to think they know what they’re doing.

    Kayaking la Jolla help?

    I usually just go to the big parking lot adjacent to scripps pier. If you’re really early you can probably find some good street parking.

    Kayaking la Jolla help?

    Check out bigwatersedge.com for better kayak info. The paddle is very short to the grounds from La Jolla shores. Avenida de la playa st in La Jolla. Take that all the way to the water. Back your truck down the sand to the water, go park and have fun

    What rod length you using to yoyo with?

    I think you may have it backwards. Fast taper rods (example 20-50lb or 30-60lb) are ideal for throwing iron. While slower rods 20-30lb, 30-40lb, etc .. are more suitable for bait.

    Chloro/SST/Temp question

    Since the chloro break is inside the temp break, the temp break would be in nice blue water. Nothing wrong with that. I’d fish the temp break in the example you posted. I’ve always seen more signs of life and caught more fish on a temp break in blue water vs a chloro break that is miles from...

    Now that you landed that big Bluefin, what to do?

    You could but you’ll lose the smoke flavor. I would invest in a cheap smoker solely for smoking fish. It’s worth it. Especially because the fish keeps so well after smoked.

    On big fish it can help with your rod wanting to roll.

    San Diego popper/jig sizes and leader????

    Color, size, not as important as a properly placed cast in a good bite. Go get a couple poppers. Make some Long casts, put a popper in front of a tunas face, it will get bit. Have fun! Popper fishing is nothing but fun.

    southern texafornia BIGEYE tuna with video! ;-)

    “That’s how you do it” grab ahold of that hook with a knife and try to cut in half. And if that doesn’t work I’ll lever the hook out with a tool meant for filleting fish. It makes sense if you don’t think about it.

    Slow trolled macs or Rapalas and why?

    Obviously you wouldn’t want to have the hook pin the mouth shut, that’s why you only go through the upper jaw. Especially with circle hooks. I don’t like slow trolling baits with sideways hooks because the hook often spins and a lot of times the point of the hook stick back into the bait. Not...

    Myth debunked, Pride 8/24/18

    Nice report. Instead of breaking them off couldn’t you just bounce and release? Or using too light of gear?

    there must be fish here?

    I’m all about sharing knowledge, but like other have said, find your own fish. Much more rewarding and easier than you would think with the volume of fish around. Nothing better than pulling limits off a kelp or a school of tuna, releasing a few til your arms fall off. With no other boat In...

    Grande full day trip 8-17

    Probably boat limits like most other trips. That’s like sayin me and you went fishing in Mexico on a private boat. I caught four dorado. You caught none. Do I throw my second two back? No because you didn’t catch any and there are two anglers on the boat. Pretty common knowledge.

    Need advice on my gear.

    What is the rod rated for LB wise and the length? daiwa proteus? Keep trying you’ll get it. Practice til you get it. Those penn fathoms have insane freespool so when you get the hang of it you’ll be underhanding sardines like it’s no big deal

    DOES H&M OR SEAFORTH RENT #130+?

    I’d snip the yummy off the boat gear at night while it’s dark, and fish your flat fall on the bow where they won’t see you with it.

    Need advice on my gear.

    T try underhand Try underhand casting a sardine again and again with the fathom. You’ll get it eventually. As long as the rod it’s on has a soft tip

    Does the boat have GPS? If so I would turn it on and see if you can find a screenshot of when they stopped you, should be noticeable, and show them the line you were drifting into the MPA while they were checking your stuff.

    4-5 year old Flouro, would you still use it?

    Flourocarbon does not absorb UV light. It’s closed cell. UV / sunlight does nothing to detiorate the quality of the line. Fish it

    Flourocarbon unlike monofilament is closed cell therefor not absorbing any type of UV light. I say fish it.
