    Boat fire off Santa Cruz Island 30 dead?

    I have in all my years never seen a boat where they lock anyone in any area. Especially sleeping areas.

    What happened to the Prowler?

    Funny, I meet many nice people while out fishing but the community of keyboard bashers on here sure contradicts that. Been near death on more than one occasion and live with mental and physical trauma for over 30 years. I hope nobody ever has to go through life this way.

    The fat lady bft has not sung yet

    CPS for a seasick kid, I used to get car sick as a kid going to Santa Cruz on hwy 17. What about all the cell phone driving parents talking and texting away as they endanger everyone around them. Now that makes me sick. Insert puking emoji here.

    looking for a who

    For sure bro, I love shooting while out on the water when possible and Saturday was just the case. We put in a few miles dragging all the usual rigs to no avail. I was concerned that we were a little close off your bow at about 400 yards but the fish was definitely down, my bro said it looked...

    Oceanside 95 ride on 9-6-14

    I thoroughly agree as I was on that trip as well. Huge bait and great group and crew. Especially since I failed to bring cigs but Steve here and Dan the deck hand saved the day... Thanks again boys. Mega bait was the way to go for sure and the small 2oz. Type was better than the 4oz. IMO...
