    DFW ticket for chartering a trip by sharing costs on personal boat.

    A buddy of mine just got ticketed from the DFW for running a "charter" when one of the passengers claimed they split the costs of fuel/bait during a stop by the DFW. It seems like the DFW are targeting recreational fisherman again. Its not clear if the DFW is correct given how the current...

    New: Simrad Evo3S Next Generation (NSS9/NSS12/NSS16)

    It seems like Simrad just came out with the new EVO3S line of fish finders with smaller screens (NSS9/NSS12). The EVO3S NSO line has been out since January (16/19/24 inch size), but this is the first I heard for the NSS9/NSS12 size. It looks like it has a faster 6 core processor and updated...

    150 YFT?

    Did anyone else go out to the 150 area around 1-2PM time frame on Sunday? We were out in the area next to the City of Long Beach fishing rockfish when we noticed a big school of fish break the water about a mile away in the direction of Catalina near the double rigs. At first we thought they...

    Johnson 150HP intake manifold plugged?

    I have a 1993 Johnson 2-stroke 150HP outboard (J150EXETG) that I recently did a carb rebuild. When I looked at the intake manifold on the port side, I noticed there are two orange plugs on the left fuel ports on the top and middle cylinder. It did not look normal to me. The port on bottom...

    New Andros 5IIA drag problems and bad warranty repair

    I bought two Andros 5IIA reels from J&H tackle. One of the reel works great and I have already caught 35+ lb yellowtail on it. However, the other reel has been giving me nothing but problems from the start. Long story short, I spool one of the reels with spectra with no problems at around...

    Amazing close call on a sailboat

    Saw this video and was amazed at how close that sailboat was away from hitting the other boat. It looks like the other boat was used for practice since it had two large floats, but its still a close call.

    Bluefin Tuna may be harder to find in the future

    It looks like Bluefin will be be harder to find in the future with all the investments into tuna farms in Japan and other countries. The banks and investors are pumping over 10 billion yen ($122 million) into more more Bluefin tuna farms to chase 7% or higher returns. They are also catching...

    Interesting video of Commercial Albacore Fishing...

    Its interesting seeing how the commercial fisherman just handline the fishes back into the boat. Maybe that's why we see less fish now.

    Problems with Curado 300EJ Design?

    I've been noticing that when I cast my Curado 300EJ, it randomly causes the freespool button to disengage. It has been very annoying and causes the line to wrap around the tip of the rod. It happens more when I whip the rod when I cast with lures. I just figured out what caused the problem on...

    Top Gun 80 made a killing today - 106 bluefins, 4 YFT (19 people)

    Did anyone see that count today? This was on an overnight boat, so they were not too far out. It looks like a hit an miss, but some boats are getting them to bite. I wonder if they are the smaller 10-15 lb bluefins that has not been spooked by the seiners. Were any of you guys on the boat...

    Pro-Gear Albacore Special Parts

    My reel is making loud clicking noises during casting. For some reason, the noise goes away when I flip the reel upside down. I think the pinion gear is either worn down and/or the bearings are bad. I'm planning to get new bearings and pinion gear to fix the problem. My reel doesn't have a...
