    Seasick on Sports Boat

    Yes. I bought one and kept it in my boat just in case. I forgot to put on the patch the night before a trip and promptly got sick as soon as I got to Cat. I put it on, and within 30 minutes felt like a million bucks. It does work but the pulse is annoying as hell.... way better then being sick...

    Yes. Kwells work great. But make sure you follow the directions. If it says every 6hours, make sure you take it every 6 hours. It seemed like I got sick at the 6 hour mark when I took them.

    Channel Islands 1st timer

    I’m planning on heading out to the Channel Islands this weekend, weather pending. I’m looking for info on where to launch. I can google and find a ramp/ramps, but I’d like to know which is best, if there are shitters there, water, secure, steepness, parking, etc.... Thanks BD. This community...

    Wristband for Mexico waters

    I haven’t fished a sporty down south in a while so my info might not be accurate. Best way is to call one of the landings to find out for sure.
  279. Steveo77

    Wristband for Mexico waters

    If your on a sport boat the landing should have the permit and anything else you need. I think all you need is the passport.

    3 ft at 7 sec?

    It’ll be way sloppy and wet. I opted out on my trip this weekend. Not worth it to me for rockfish and bass. I went out last weekend, if I remember right it was 3 in 6 with 5-7 knots winds and it was way uncomfortable in my 26 striper.
  281. Steveo77

    Okay to go to Catalina island tomorrow?

    Nope. I planned on heading out his weekend but canceled my plans due to weather.

    Hobie Outback, buy used or bight the bullet new?

    If it’s your first yak I’d start with something cheaper and fish the harbors to see if it’s for you. Although I would recommend something wide and long for the stability if your new to it. Now with that being said, it takes up a lot of room to store too. Just some things to consider if it’s...

    What do you eat for lunch while fishing?

    Good point. I didn’t even think of that. Unless it’s a multi day trip I should be good.
  297. Steveo77

    What do you eat for lunch while fishing?

    Well imma keep these on the boat so I don’t have to pack a lunch when I go. Oh, and plenty of salt and Tabasco. Basically just grab my rods, ice and go. Everything else is on the boat ready to go.

    Anyone else look for that Bluefin today?

    We worked the 150 and the rigs all day. Stayed away from the fleet for the better part of the morning around the west 150 area. There was alot of bait and birds. Didn’t meter any fish though. Saw the birds eating tuna crabs though.

    South shore launch ramp

    I never launched there. How’s is the facility? Parking? Shitter? Water bibs- Quarters? Easy solo launch next to the dock like Newport or MDR? Secure? Access? Credit card payment or cash? I like Davies but can’t launch solo there. Also, how is the launch at Huntington? LOA is around...

    Which Weather Forecast Source is most accurate for So. Cal?

    General rule of the thumb for a small vessel; - under 10 seconds- stay at the dock. - wind over 15- stay at the dock As you gain time on the water you’ll be more comfortable with your limits.

    Just outside of the bigger rock that you’ll see is another one that most of the time you can’t see at high tide. If you make an invisible line between the beach and the rock, the area to the east is very rocky, but holds fish. The area to the west is clear. A lot of kelp there too. Good luck
  505. Steveo77

    Cat 5-25

    Johnson rock. Fished the area during the day at hi and low tide many times. So I am familiar with the rocks there. If not, setting up there at night would’ve been sketchy to say the least. Excellent point about putting in GPS. I haven’t thought of that.

    Got candy from nacho and made like a tree and split! Flat ride out to the west end. Hit The usually coves for the usual suspects at 6am. My buddy Gordo lands 2 goats, 1 dink and 1 so so. Released both. I had a mystery fish that cut my line. Wasn't gettin any more action so we left that spot...

    Catalina 11-6

    launched from Davies at 5am, and hauled ass to nachos. Got some candy, seen one of his chihuahua's take a dump on the dock, (funny) and pointed west. Swell wasn't too bad on the way out. Averaged about 20 on the way out to the west end. Had to slow her down a little bit when we got closer. Not...

    left Davies at 4:30, got a nice scoop of dines from nacho and headed off. That crossing was like my old lady...nice and flat. Water temp stayed around 70-71. Played on the east end and back side all morning. Trolled live bait and rapalas for a while, didn't get any love. Drifted on some...

    True story bro. There's a little slop in it though. I'll be replacing it soon anyways. I don't like the splice in it that close to the bottom. That's why I like to post these pics. To get input and comments. Thanks for the hit.

    Replaced and re-plumbed to bait pump. Man, I think the previous owners name was Mickey Mouse. It was amazing the bait pump and bilge was still working. You wouldn't believe the wires I pulled out of there. Anyways, installed a bigger hatch and put the bait pump sideways, and made a shorter run...

    After runnin good all day...eng prob ?

    I had an 84 merc that did the same thing. Replaced all the fuel lines and filter, flushed the tank, AND made sure the vent line was routed in a way that it didn't create a trap. Problem solved.

    I haven't posted on this thread in a while. I am extremely happy with this boat. Although I haven't done a lot to it, what I have done is this; Put another motor on her, added FF, rod holders, fixed the bow eye, and the usual miscellaneous stuff that comes with owning a boat. Here some pics;

    NPH Butt 6-4-16

    Launched at 6 and started hitting the docks. No love there, so started hitting the moorings. Bouncing off the bottom was getting short bit, so put on a smaller swim bait, and boom, picked this sumbitch up. Decent size for NPH standards. Picked up a sandy on a 3/4 lead head and big grub, and the...

    Dont forget to check your plumbing for the bait tank. If it's PVC, replace it, and put a shut off valve. The last thing you want is PVC under the water line. There are a lot of threads on here that I have learned a lot from when I got my first boat 2 years ago. Good luck, and congrats on he new...

    So the first order of business was the bow eye. It was sloppy, and there was a hole in the anchor locker, where the nuts for the bow eye was. I cut a larger hole to see what was going on down there, and removed the bow eye. After removing the bow eye, started grinding and cutting. The pics show...
