It can handle a cow too, if you’re up for some pain.
I think it does because of all the ads loading and such. I frequent a few other various forums, and bd is by far the slowest, and I have the same...
There’s a section for freshwater reports
Yes, thank you! Both those and Force are great boats
I think that’s it. There’s Haii kai? (Something like that) as well. One of them makes smaller boats. I haven’t been on the Hawaiian forum in a bit.
Radon, or Hawaiian made boat (can’t remember the name).
Fairmont Park is your only mud hole option in Riverside, besides the river itself. Not sure you’ll catch fish in there, but I’m pretty sure you...
We need reports!
Who bought her??
I mentioned Perris, and that it’s not ideal for shore fishing. Doable, but better if you have a boat.
DVL is overpriced and overrated!
I want a ride!! :-):rockin::drool:
I don’t know if I could top Alex88. He’s taken his Arima (smaller than mine) WAAAAAY further than I have ever taken mine. That said, if I had to...
Depends on who is rigging them. I think Carl is working at the Turners in San Diego. He rigged up some lures for me at Dana Landing a few years...
The dam is off limits, but the park lake is stocked with the usual culprits. Carp, green bass, bluegill are also plentiful there.
There’s Rancho Jurupa lake in Riverside. Complete with camp ground and play ground.
I’ll give you a show!! Haha
Let’s see the hookers!
The boat in question here went to the landfill a few years ago guys.
A SoCal girl!! Love it
Thank you for the report! How you were able to study on a boat is beyond me, but more power to you.
Pics of Casey!
It probably is available here, but under a different name or label.
Sick little sled! I’ll bet it hauls ass with that 25 on it
I love that shit! Got some in a tournament goodie bag, and I have used it on my guns as well as my reels. A few other things too, like the wheel...
If I didn’t already have one... I’d be calling
You never know when you’ll need a genny, but if you’re in an area where natural disasters are common, it can make things a heck of a lot easier.
I want to convert mine to hydraulic steering. If you can do it, I would.
I’ve gone up the ramp sideways a few times with a two wheel drive. My current truck is a a 4X4, but I haven’t had to use it yet.
Made me think of this song
I was hoping the BOTD stuff would come up
I’m really glad this one got resurrected!!
At 6’2 I can understand!
I could really dig that boat in the eastern Sierra’s. Small, shallow, nice bow for jigging or fly casting.
It would be a cool little boat along...
Good little bay boat, and Catalina capable on good days.
Damn, you too?!
Nothing like a project boat to get you divorced... :D
The plus side of the IE is there are a few good boat shops around.

I don’t know the weight of his boat, but I have a 17 which a V-6 Nissan pulls and stops without any problem. I wouldn’t worry about pulling it...
I remember seeing those all over the place in 2014
That’s an awesome find LJ!
Same here man! Hope all goes well
Cool boat! GLWS!!
Man... you gotta get out there, if only a couple times a year.
We can’t close Amity!
I’ll be using an old 114 senator 6/0 with a doo-dad made by Gary (gecsr1) that allows me to hook up an battery powered drill.
When are you going to put yours to use? I got a few capable setups now. Just gotta get out there!
I was keeping an eye out for sharks while drinking a beer of sorrow... remember, I had just lost that big bluefin.
That was hilarious looking back

I could always use a good boat ho. I got a couple buddies that would probably hit you up too as sometimes they need an extra person.
I’m not too far from you, so it kinda puts you at about equal time to Long Beach or Sandyeggo.
I think the ho thing would be the best to do. You...
Where do live, or plan to fish?
They have locations in a lot of marina’s. They typically have four or five boats to choose from, but you do have to reserve them. Also, if you...

I see a future squid crowder net in the making there
Almost as good as the PVC shark cage
If you don’t mind spending the money, hire Dave Hansen for a day. He probably knows the area around Dana Point better than anyone.
It played for me.
I’m gonna say bait. Just above the eye, you can see the hook.
That fish had mange!
I think it was an escapee from a seiner net or the tuna pens.
Nice to get a report from the Jihad again.
If you are fishing a big game (i.e; cow tuna) and the reel is loaded with 100# braid, a 130# mono or flouro will be fine. The larger leader will...

WFO gefilte fish at the local grocery beds here
Curt, go buy that, then shoot North about a half hour and have a beer with me.
Never fished it, but I’ve heard good things about it.
I think this would work good. Especially if he could find something that could aid in scraping the walls of the tank....

I’ve seen a bunch of tin boats fishing the wall. Just like tail chaser said, pick a calm day and go for it.
Sounds like you got the right idea. I think the secondary tank is a good idea too. I’m 99.9% sure it’s an issue from the tank though. However,...
New lo-an, tomahawk, condor, old glory (the glory hole), shogun, all do overnight trips. The first three I listed are my top picks.
I think a secondary setup would be a great idea

Sorry for your loss Pete.
I understand how that can go! Find a place with a GOOD A/C, and invest in a hurricane kit.
Just wait till summer hits... hot as F***!
Great fishing though, and cool pics.
I think you’re asking a good price. Lowballers will always try, and I can’t say I blame them. Everyone wants a smokin deal.
Arima’s are great...
Taking my buddy Kris before he leaves for Georgia. He’s finally had enough of kalifornia
Nice resto! The rockfish will be impressed for sure
What a nice rig! GLWS
Thanks for the heads up Billy! Getting my boat ready for the weekend
There’s a 16’ Arima in the classifieds. Very capable boat, and your Toyota would handle it easily.
I had towerfab Tom build the arch for my boat, and he did a great job. Pacific yacht towers does good too.
Looks like a ball valve to me.
Bo, I might have a spare transom plate. I’ll look tomorrow when I’m out there.
Get one of these. I’m sure the 500gph...
I agree with Curt. Get a transom mount bait pump (call the tank manufacturer for gpm rating) and run the hose up and over. Send the exit hose over...
It’s quite simple, the deckhands on some boats feel they are entitled to the jackpot winnings (as a tip?). The OP and many others don’t appreciate...
Yeah, they ain’t cheap!
My boat still has the factory seats, but they’ve seen their better days. If I could afford it, I’d put some nice suspension seats in it.
I’ll second the the sea worthiness! I have a 17’ Ranger, and have had it out in a lot of different conditions. I’ve been all around Catalina and...
Has the boat had long periods of sitting? Looks like old gas that reduced down and stuck to the tank. With fresh gas, it’s slowly breaking down...
Fish killer there! Go get em!

Mike would buy it!
Don’t know, but that shit was funny!
A good trolling rod will work in a pinch if you’re on a tight budget.
You mean they don’t?
It’s only got as much power as you give it... until it has no more. Lol
Overkill maybe, but it would do the job.
I would be good with that! However, if the crew sucks they won’t be in business long.

No need my friend. Already got one :)
That didn’t take long! Haha
At least it’s a nice boat and worth the hassle.
Nice boat btw, looks like a good deal too. GLWS!!
I think Cisco’s will sell their dead bait for cheap. Throw it in the freezer for later use.
I completely agree! However, my bank account doesn’t. :cool:
If you still have it, I have a buddy nearby. I might be able to convince him to grab it.
Sounds like the rings might worn out. Is it ran hard or raced? How many miles?
I wouldn’t drive it without oil
I considered it, but then I would have to drop $500+ on a reel for it!
I’m no help to answer your prop question. Just posting to say NICE BOAT!!

If you don’t mind heavy and gold, you can’t go wrong with an old school International.
They’re cheaper than any of the reels mentioned.

If you take more, it knows the weight and charges it to your card. It doesn’t take cash.

You’re buying right?
Same reasons here. I got a decent house and property, but I want to keep my rights and money. I’ll miss the water, but I do like to hunt too....

Arima makes a Center console in 17’ and 19’ platforms. It’s called the Sea Angler. I believe it was designed with SoCal in mind.
Tackle Ho’s anonymous
I need to give them some love, and put them to use. I’m sure I can find a few kids that would love to crank and catch with em.
Sup vato! We all gotta go through some shit in life... time on the water will always do you good. Catching taco meat makes it better!

Jason is a genuine good guy and fisherman to the core.
Show your BD!!
This does bring up a question in my mind to Ali. When you want to go fishing for fun, and it’s not a LK shoot, do you take the SeaVee or the Jihad?
My 17’ will be on the market soon
Just wait guys. If people don’t speak up, you’re gonna be in California but with more rain.
I run a Furuno 1623 on my boat, and it works good. Paid a grand for it some years ago, but sometimes they pop up used for $500 or so +\-
Hey Tommy, how close is it? Let me know, I’ll be a ho soon enough. Getting ready to yank the engine out of mine soon.
Tony is right, Costco is much cheaper and easier, but Tony doesn’t go fishing at the market either. LOL

False advertising!! I want tacos dammit!
Looks like someone already did. Couldn’t find it
:food-smil Now we can get back to fishing
Try lightly tapping it from behind with a rubber mallet.
I don’t blame you. They look for every reason to screw you without a reach around.
However, I’ve seen the boat myself and it is nice.
Pulled my 24 FB with an Expedition 5.4. Handles it just fine
My 250 diesel... doesn’t care!
I “think” anything over 103” width “”legally”” needs an oversize banner. I forget what the width needs to be to need a permit as well.
Glad you checked it out. If they made the G2’s in a 90 or 115hp, I would have one on my Arima.
Did you buy the boat?
You could look up Scold. He’s in the Bay Area, and does some beautiful work.
Lots of good reels out there for pulling iron. Any particular reels you are looking for?
I didn’t know Tony, nor did I ever meet him. That said, I’ve known his name for many years, and familiar with his legend.
My condolences Mrs....

Old boat with an almost new G2, and a build thread.... is it in Arizona?
Not true about the lakes. I have a 2012 Etec 90 (non G2) and it’s allowed on any lake, but old school two strokes might not be. Depends on the lake.
I’m sure Newscum will sign any bill requiring all predator species to become vegan.
Yup... it’s got a leak. At least it looks clean, no water. Hopefully it’s just a seal and not a crack in a hard part.
I might be able to help. I’m in the IE near lake Perris.
If the weather is right, I’d look at the eastern Sierra’s, and take a day to check out Bodie

Congrats on the banned teal!
The work wouldn’t be too hard to do yourself, but if you prefer to send it to a shop, WOT in Carlsbad (I think) would probably be your best bet....
Beautiful job Jake!
Your title was fine. It convinced my eyes to tell my stomach this is something we should be looking at.
Jambalaya does sound good though.
I had the same thought as Corey! Sucks to have bubble guts, but I'm glad you got to get out and pick on a few fish.
Wish that was good for diesel engines too.
Merry Christmas Mr. and Mrs. Garrison!
PS your horses hooves need trimming. :p:
I'm not positive, but I think the Andros line is available in lefty. The Makaira would be ideal, but I haven't heard of a lefty Mak
I have a lefty metaloid 12II. I would imagine the metaloid 5II is available in lefty as well.
That's great news! Finally found something that eats them little bastards.
That should haul ass once it's happy.
Is there a cash purchase option, or trade only?
Hopefully it's something small. Frustrating for sure!
Did the seller give you any kind of warranty or guarantee?
A fuel bladder is an option too. That would give you more range at a fraction of the cost of a diesel.
Havasu might have some striper biting. Just a guess, I've never fished it.
San Diego will definitely have rockfish, and halibut. There's word...
Short, to the point with a touch of funny.
Wasn't wrong either.

Classic and classy! I'd be proud to show those off.
Soy sauce works wonders!
It's cheaper to find a boat with a diesel in it.

I'm really surprised this boat hasn't sold. Where are you located?
About a half hour north of Temecula.
You know, I might suggest looking at an avet three speed for that kind of depth.
1800 feet... my arm hurts just thinking about that.
Too bad you aren't closer to me. I have an empty drum
800-1200 ft? Damn, that's a lot of cranking!
Due to the lack of local reports, I think it might be tough to get out for anything other than rockfish and other bottom dwellers.
Mine has 300 yards of 80# braid with 100 yards of 50# mono. It can hold a lot of 50# braid.

If it's only 50 cents, I could swing a buck.
I've seen some big ones off the 138, but too close to the road and a lot of atv traffic.
Acetone might work, but I use a heat gun with a razor blade.

A buddy of mine pulled a ten pound striper out of there about two months ago, and was super stoked. I remember when that was like eh... fryer...
And lightly salted!
Never underestimate the stupid
Or.... become a boat ho. (Many people here don't own boats, but fill in spots on private boats, and chip in on costs)
What an idiot! Funny shit though
That's one way to do it! Good times

Power bait is usually the best producer, but if soaking bait isn't what you like, I've had good luck with kastmasters and rooster tails
Cleghorn can produce well, but it's got a lot of beach, so they spread out pretty wide over the sand.
The striper can get big in there too, and...
Miller is a great trot spot, but you have to shore fish in the no boat zone. Just to the right of the boat launch is another good trout spot.

I believe that statement whole heartedly, but if it's your will, understand...
What is OSPHO?
Many on this site are familiar with both brands, and could possibly answer a lot of your questions.
I go to work and dream of fishing or doing things people with lives do.

Nice butt! (Never thought I'd say that to another dude)
Oldie... but a goodie!
I have a safe jack and a trailer. The jack had no problem with my 1200 pound safe
Dude! You should have had your girls with you yesterday. They could have helped and you'd all be chillin right now.
I agree that all the boats you listed are solid hulls. I am a bit biased to the Arima. I also have a 17' Sea Ranger and it's been awesome for me....
Very true!! Especially when he's hanging out with filthy sanchez
Everybody loves Carl!
You could try pm'ing carl
PSUH!! I'll have a cold one to that.
Happy thanksgiving LJ!
That sucks! Sorry to hear it Brandon.
I hope he went peacefully.
PS, tell James I said hello
Shoulda gave em something to look at :waglleybooty:
CLEAN!! Good score
19' Arima huh? Nice!
I can tell you now the bunks would definitely need changing. The deadrise on the current boat is considerably deeper....
Might have one available soon. It's got a 24' on it now. I offered it to another guy, but if he doesn't want it, it's going up for sale.
Pull up fishlegal.com
Does it have a bait tank, and can it make it to Catalina or SCI?
If you're interested, I have a an entire donor boat that could very well work for you. It has a mercruiser 233 (351 Ford) with less than 100 hours...
No need try at all. I hope your dad made better than a minimum wage. Many OTR truck drivers don't.
Could your dad afford a long range trip and a...
You poor poor man. Ever talk to a truck driver? 2/3 of the year to see his family would be quite nice.
Oh, and truck drivers don't make tips,...
Sounds like a score! Keep us updated on how well it works, especially on the searing part.
If it's good at doing both duties and doesn't give...
I don't know, but I've seen a few deckie's rolling nicer rides than mine, and fishing stand out gear.
I don't think they make as little as it's...
The nice part about full loads is half the people will be in the galley with the bubble guts.
Don't know if it will happen in my lifetime, but I'd like to see better boat technology, as in faster and more fuel economic, which will allow the...

Hahaha!!! Nacho is great so long as you're not the one to wake him up.
I live in the middle, so I can see your point. I do fish San Diego more...
Pete, I haven't heard of GMG before but traeger is a popular brand.
Here in the states there are quite a few options when it comes to pellet...
I didn't think too much of it. Figured you missed Nacho, and your boat got REALLY good fuel mileage
Long Beach, SD
Love this store too! Too bad I live so far away, otherwise I'd probably be in there a lot more.
I do drop in when I go see family in the area,...
Ho Chi Minh shoot a load on your chin!
Thank god there's no internet kooks here! :food-smil
Just north of it. Kinda off the domes if I remember correctly.
Sure, someone could make something up to get the cops at your house, but if it's a false accusation they would have to defend that themselves....
My buddy got this one at Rosa last week
Ali... I don't think they make a hat to fit you anymore.
That's very disturbing. Another way to get people to give up.
Plaster of Paris can be found at Michael's. Hobby lobby might have it too
DIY in Big Bear might sell it as well. Also a good excuse to stop by...
You should always start at the back of the line at the stern, and keep moving shoulder to shoulder up the rail. This seems to be a lost art often...
Rust: PB Blaster

Anyone interested in a get together while the fishing sucks?
Be in good physical shape. Wind and swells can work you out real fast.
I've been considering buying a kayak too, bit I'm far from in shape. I'll...
The offer is there if you change your mind. Glad you still got your hoops to use.
You are welcome to borrow some of my gear until you can replace what has been lost. I got gear from 2 pounds to 130 pounds with a decent little...
Bottle of fireball and a blowjob
Gas station sushi will do it every time :_diarrhea_:
They've been salting the scissors for a while now.
I had to look for em, but I found my dykes!
Someone will want it for sure. I might be willing to part out a boat I have with a good engine and drive that would probably work good in that boat.
Sweet deal! What's the story on the engine and drive?
And what year is the hull?
I would totally get that first pic printed out and framed. It's more silhouette, and looks bitchin
Definitely impressive on 15# line.
OG mossback there! Hope you're stocked up on butter too
The day after I sell my boat
Just call Dave Hansen. He knows everything that ever was.... for a tip
Such an optimist you are!
Caught this dude on December 28th last year
The beard tickled a little.
I've used Davies many times without an issue, but I have also seen plenty of questionable characters hanging out around there.
I haven't been to...
The link is closed...
I think if you're willing to cover the xtra fees, and he still insists on friends and family, plus being a new guy... I...
It goes faster than that!
My boat will do 30, and that asshole passed me like I was sitting still. Yes, I was WOT to see
Water bobbers were my secret weapon when shore fishing for trout. Even a regular bobber with a crappie jig
And that kids is how sausage is made.
There's a few BD'rs that I would suspect wrote that note.
Mex license is required! I don't think a passport is required, but it would certainly help to have one if you get checked.
Good info! Thank you.
That reminds me, when I bought my truck I got the original turbo with it. It needs to be rebuilt, but it might be a fun...
I was gonna go out there Sunday, but the wife made other plans.
To those that go, have fun!
Since you started it Chad...
If all works out, and I know soon enough I'll be there!
I'm looking forward to catching some buts with you and Mike B.
Don't feel too bad...
I'm probably gonna miss it this year. New job has me working Friday nights into Saturday morning.
Had a lot of fun last year with you guys. Good...
Go Broncos! Lol
Very true. And that's why I didn't take the shot. It was a large deer for the area, but not worth the risk. I won't take a shot if I'm not 100%...
I don't expect anyone to believe a damn thing I say, but I have seen a lot of deer, and it was probably the largest I had seen locally. I can't...
Saw the body pretty good, but couldn't see it's head through the trees. At the angle I was at I couldn't tell if it had a pecker either.
My wife would LOVE that rod! Too bad chasing cows doesn't interest her.
First yellowtail I caught on my boat was trolling a cedar plug along the kelp line heading into San Diego bay.
Was that tuna boiling?
I know a spot in D-11 with some big bucks. You gotta be in seriously good shape to get where they are. I have had better luck in D-14, but I...
Damn rat birds! I've had a few clean releases with them before, but what a pain in the ass!
I got a 200 just collecting dust. It runs, but needs some love

Curtis, I don't really need another fly rod but I'm curious. Let me know what you want for it.
I've always been a fan of Big Bear, and Silverwood. Pulled my weight in trout out of those lakes over the years (and that's a lot of trout!)...
At the rate they're going... 2025!
Repost a pic of your setups George. They disappeared from your old thread.
I remember what they look like, but I can't explain it as good as a...
Normally, I would say Shelter Island but until the ramp gets redone, San Diego bay can be a PIA.
I usually run out of Mission Bay anyway since...
So uh... where do you get it? I need to re spool all my trout rods. I haven't used them in probably three years
Holy crap! Ande still makes light line?
Is the pink better?
I've never had a bad experience with Nacho... but I make sure I'm not the one to wake him either!
I didn't read any of it, too much for my A.D.D.
Great pictures though, and looks like a great time!
Great video! Quite poetic in its own.
I hope you got a good grade for it
I haven't tried skippies for lobster bait, but I don't think bugs are all that picky. :p
Looks like more yellowfin than skippy'. Nice!
That's cool Jake! Pair that with the orange rod got fire and ice!
Look in the intake valley for pooled up oil. The HPOP seals could be leaking. A lot will sit in there before it leaks down. I learned that the...
Beautiful fire stick Jake! That thing looks BADASS!!
I'll take the tank.
I've heard dieselTech in Hemet is the guy to go to from plenty of others too.
If it were a gasser, I'd say it sounds like a busted ring or two,...
I'm not a diesel mechanic, but since I bought a 7.3 of my own, I've figured out a bit. I'm not far from Temecula either.
Maybe it's something I...
To each their own reasons. I myself have no desire to catch one, but if it were legal I wouldn't tell anyone not to.
I would hope that if...
Can you add a few more pics? I need to make sure it's worth my kidneys.

The likelihood of GW sharks ever being allowed for take is slim to none, so it's probably not even worth arguing about. However, I do agree with...
I hope they settle at San Jacinto! I'm five minutes from there

Saw a big flock of ducks headed over Perris Lake this morning.
I own two as well. Definitely one of my favorites!
Now if the only made a serpentine setup for my AD-41!
I get a feeling those snapper are tasty
I don't blame you, and it would probably taste like a mercury stick anyway. Haha
But definitely a nice fish! Even the one in your post is quite...
Even as an anomaly, that's gotta be an old fart fish! I rarely target bass, but that would be something nice to have a photo opp with!
You got schooled by a 40 year old coffee grinder??
Glad you still get to fish with your pops!...
Hey hey hey! Don't go ruining my fun. :D
Have you checked Jegs, or Summit? March pulleys probably makes a set.
BBB (big bluefin bailed)
I got a buddy who is good with resins. I might be able to get him to take some time and duplicate it, or even attempt it myself.
What are the dimensions of that popper, Gary?
Two Paddy's workin a pattie and score! Priceless
Yeah, he signed it. No more gill nets (in five years).
I still have have to dust off my hoop nets
A buddy and I used to snuff rabbits with sling shots. Ten minutes of practice and it's game on! This could be fun
Bring on the butter!
First rule of BD fight club is nobody talks about BD fight club
I would usually mark them. I found them under birds too, but mostly just marks around 100' of water.
Last year I was killing them on a small sardine patterned flat fall
I'm one of those guys that wears a wallet chain for this reason. It started as a fashion thing when I was a teenager, but it's kept my wallet with...
DAMMIT KRABS!!! Now I'm gonna be stuck on that for the next three hours
Be nice to Pornhub! They do a fine service for us.
Yeah! C'mon Swami, we know you got em.
Sorry to hear that Mikey, but news like this makes me glad I never created a Facebook account.
I've had service at the whistler buoy, but that's about it.
Why are chitterlings pronounced chitlins?
New Orleans pronounced Nawlins?

I told them to use a slug, but NOOOOOOoooooooo... 00 buck will do just fine they said.
4x4, single, extra, or crew cab?
Is a tip expected?
That's what vessel assist is for. PSUH!:food-smil
Your in hull bait tank is good for a 1/2 scoop, or a light full scoop.
I fished on Chapo's Hydra Sport and the tank works just fine.
Fishing is illegal in Washington now, except like one day a year
Nows the time, but I would launch from San Diego. You'll get more options for tuners
Thoroughly impressed, and just a bit jealous!
I've talked to Jason before, he's a good dude. I would definitely buy a rod from him and heed any advice he gives.
You gotta read the whole thing to truly get the story. There's a moral at the end, I promise!
Drop around the twin rigs. There's almost always something on the bottom there that's willing to eat. Green buoy area can usually produce some...
Happy Birthday Marcel!
I have some donated rigs that I can hook you up with. I'm not sure what they all are, but I'll get them out. I had the...
Nice little chaser
If she's on board, I'm gonna be single... and very busy!
Bruce, if my skip was working I'd say let's do this!
Unfortunately, five dudes on my Arima ain't gonna happen. That boat is three people max.
The best are the videos of other people watching it. That's hilarious!
Native Sun is a good one, also the Ahra Anne
That covers most knots including the SD jam
I've been told there is a special tool for installing the injector cups. I have to do the same to mine.
SD jam has been my go to knot since I learned it about ten years ago. It hasn't failed me yet.
I know military doesn't give you much if any options, but SC is coastal. Why not take your boat with you?
Two marlins one cup... how would they.... o_O:oops::cool::eek2:
I don't wanna catch wiener! Tacos would be a good catch though
Here's the full image for you guys
Good to know! Thank you
That's hilarious! If I looked like that I'd have no problem getting out on boats...
I'd have to spend my whole day warding off wiener though,...
Sounds like a good day!
The raked baits sound like halibut. Throw a stinger on there and get em. Could also be lizard fish too, but I've only...
They want people to "try vegan". If she's hot and doesn't smell like lobster, I'll try one.
Regardless of brand, if it's what you like in a boat, rip into it. You already got it, so make it yours.
Check the structure, fix it where it's...
Damn!!! I just bought one too
I'd pay money to see your boat go that fast. :D
^what he said^ You might have taken it in the shorts on this one.
I don't know anything of the brand, but almost all boats are subject to rot...
In 1973 Skipjack changed the deadrise to a deeper V, so yours is a mod V. It probably originally had an inline six engine too, which is a wee bit...
At least you got out and got a couple. I haven't had a chance to get out since June!
I bought a Shakespeare bait casting combo at Walmart for about $40. It's cheap, and good for small fish. I have fun with it tossing plastics for...
I thought I was the only one that's on the verge of passing out during the day. I don't know how many times I've set the trollers out, hooked up...
So, if you're gonna do it, I would say launch from Mission Bay in San Diego. Dana landing would probably be the best bet. They have a full tackle...
Might be ready by the end of next summer
Congratulations! Fix it up right, and don't forget the pics
I like those colors. The green threw me off a little, but it helps bring out the other shades. Nice stick! Someone is gonna really enjoy that
Which boat are you going on and when? I got a couple rigs that can take on these beasts, and I might be willing to rent them out. PM me if interested
Ignorance is bliss...
A damn good buzz and some barf
Bluefin are gone. It's lizard fish city from here on out
Man, my wife already thinks I'm flirting with chicks here. That wouldn't help her argument
Give him your boats specs, and he will most likely nail it on the head. I do believe he'll exchange your prop if it's not on the money.
Mike, I resemble those remarks! Haha
Nice haul for the day.
Great job Adam!
How are you liking your Arima?
Sumbitch!! Tommy H? Yeah, that's me. I'm with UPS now
I'd be interested in the galley if available.
Funny, I've been thinking the same. A big reason I bought my diesel pickup.
I'll be fixing up my Skipjack, and probably keep it here in the...
Last bug season... are you leaving?
Do unto others.... what a dumb name for a boat
I don't have a kodiak, but the rule that I've come to know is 30 gallons minimum for a full scoop. 22 would probably be good for a generous 1/2 scoop.
65# is more than necessary on the sx, but it won't hurt it. 30-40# is more ideal.
FWIW, my sx is loaded with 65# braid. (It was on special)
More hooks than you think you'll need, small weights, joys of jigs, and maybe a sabiki rig if the captain decides making macs is a good option....
Bug time is only a month away! This is a good reminder to me. I gotta pull out my bug gear and make sure it's all ready to go
My Arima has the same setup. I just made anew one
Shots of scotch and Corey's haggis sandwiches? I'm in!
I was all in until the morals... ;)
Good read, I'm sure your dad would have got a kick out of it.
Oh man, you have no idea! Some of these guys cry over stupid shit. It goes from bloody decks to bloody twats
Stock holds up fine so long as they're not the jumbo size.
Go to squidco, or even Carl at Turners to get them tricked.
No shit?? Wow!
The only thing I can think of that isn't allowed is (illegal) drugs and coolers.
If you smoke, make sure to stand downwind. If you don't,...
Tuners and tails!!
I'd have a 25, and a 40# setup for this trip
Oh, another tip! Try be first or as close to it as possible to get on the boat. Set your rods down, and go below and pick a bunk asap, and leave...
Headlamp, for what? These boats are lit up like daytime. No need for a head lamp, unless you like some extra light to tie your rigs.
Yellows are definitely on the chew right now. Just gotta find them
Maybe they'll make another version... yellowtail vs. bft?
If you like it, have it fixed. The general cost per eye is about $10 +/-
Say hey to Chapo. He's one of the deckies
Absolutely!! Ever had "chunk light tuna" from a can? If you answered yes, then you've had Skipjack.
It really depends on the boat, and your experience. The boat could probably handle it just fine, but I doubt it would be comfortable.
Where's your sense of adventure? That's what great stories are made of :D
Cilantro, garlic, and lime juice.
I'm with Carter. They're not my favorite on the table, so keeping them doesn't do much for me. They're fun to catch, and I like the idea of...
Bay Area hippies
Sounds kinda like Kalifornia
Probably blew a head gasket
My boat averages 4-5 mpg, and only holds 23 gallons. I'll go 40 maybe 50 miles out but I take a couple fuel jugs with me. Three if I'm gonna go 50.
That guy died according to the morning news
X2 on Saurfish. Also, if you can handle a ride on a Parker, Eric @ezesportfishing has boated quite a few already.
I wouldn't worry about the ringed hooks. Might not hurt to have some in the box, but they're not necessary.
Does it not run? That's a pretty sweet setup, although I'd prefer a Volvo outdrive behind it.
Sounds like your starter is toast!
I think the guy that wired my boat wired yours too! I've practically rewired the entire boat over the years...
It's an awesome and proud moment when they do it all on their own. Awesome day!
Hook through the nose
Ouch! I did seals on mine for under $60. If it's the entire pump... different story, but not an overly hard job.
In my experience a full moon usually equals a boat ride with stripes. (Skunk)
That said, the few times I have hooked up on a full moon, it's been...
Love the hula girl on the pulpit!
Pick a glass day, it could be ok. Get your ass in before the wind picks up.
I wouldn't do it, but it has been done. 2014 when the yellowfin bite...
Beech Bonanza! Those V tails are sweet too
I've tried that, and it peels off. Works fine if it's a sandwich seal, but not to anchor.
Silicone or any other adhesive will not stick to starboard. Screws only
I don't see the Santa Maria part, but it is cool. I'm interested

No failure there!

Looking at it again, I do believe it is.
Definitely in it's best shape! Lol
WTF is that with a bird on it?
Ap, I feel your pain to a good degree. I've spent a lot of money I don't have to build up my little boat, expand my gear to handle the fish I...
Good boat to have in N. Carolina.
I can vouch seeing this boat in person, she's every bit of sexy and a fish killing machine!
GLWS, and hope...
So how did you abuse it? :frehya2:
This might sound dumb, but check the wire to the kill button.
I have an old Johnson 4 horse that I serviced. It was running before I went...
If this forecast remains, I'm staying on shore. Too lumpy for my little tub.
I might be going out Sunday. Not sure yet
I haven't heard anyone yet being spooled on a Mak 20.

Pics of the bartender!
I'll give that a shot, thanks!
Sorry yours is being a turd. I bought mine used and had been awesome thus far. I use it quite a bit.
How do you do that?
Bumpity bump bump
No doubt it's a huge fish. So many culinary options!
15 bodies that I could count.
Been debated here already, and the BD scientist community agreed it was bs.
I personally have no dog in the fight.
It's BS! I've cooked fish in mine, along with everything else. I don't get fish smell or taste from it. I have the same model, and it's been...
I need two cheap reels to put on my sabiki rods. An old Zebco, or cheap small level wind will do.

Dunk a line...
I use wet, and a little bit of dry. ¢99 store TUNA cat food
The wind and swell are going into each other. That's gonna add some chop
To weigh it out, I would think cost vs. function. An outboard on a bracket would be bitchin, it would open up the deck a ton, and...
I use mine for 15-25# bait and light jigs. It's my go to 75% of the time
Might be overkill for 10, but 15-25 would by ideal IMO.
Hopefully they get it fixed for you.
Here's the phone number if you prefer to call them
I found their contact info, and got a very nice lady on the phone. She fixed it for me right away.
If anyone else had this issue, call them. She...
I got hosed. Didn't get the option for a second rod, and no contact info
If I didn't have a mandatory meeting on Sunday, I'd run with you.
Maybe in a couple weeks I can get out there if you're going again
Blueberries = football bluefin
Kelp line is pretty consistent
They're fuckin cheap! I only seem to get two maybe if I'm lucky, three years out of them.
I would also consider changing the impeller, and maybe the plugs. If you don't have the repair manual for it, get it.
I saw it. That shit was funny!
I've ran into this same issue with financing too. I have an AD41 that needs rebuilding.
The best I have come up with is to get a personal loan...

What is his website address?
I have a Saltist 40 on my 90J, but I've been eyeballing the V52 for it.
You'll have to buy the remote antenna.
Billy had his own rods now too?
I'm gonna need her, the rod/reel, and the boat for 72 hours for further analysis.
I have the kite and those two rigs. My only other option is a 114 senator 6/0 HSL, but I'm not into that kind of punishment.
These are the two options I have. Just trying to put the best rig up for the job.
Beautiful rods scold!
If I could, I'd buy the 3x5 and 50w combo. Someone is gonna score on these.
Hoping for a good recovery. Back surgery is...
I totally understand that one. I have a 24' skip with a diesel that needs to be rebuilt. I have my Arima, so I haven't been desperate to get it...
I don't know what that was about...
The rams can be rebuilt, so that's not a worry.
That's a nice hull, I'm kicking it around.
That didn't last long at all! Hell, I would have jumped on that one too
Good drive. Any issues with it?
Which VP outdrive is on it?
Not unless you register it in a different state.
You could make them for a variety of skipjacks, and make some decent coin.
Yellowfin love 2-PAC!
My buddy that's in the hospital has three kids that love to fish. I've taken two of them, and one on the boat. His youngest hasn't had the chance...
I haven't sold any of my gear. I'm still working up to tackle ho status. Haha
I will give gear to kids though. Anything to get them interested in...
I'm not up with all the radios available, but any of them are probably pretty good. I would look for something that is NEMA2000 and MMSI...
Mike, I didn't think you ever sold gear. :)
I would replace it. You could try hooking up an external speaker.
It's an old radio though, and newer ones have better technology in them.
Add it into your insurance policy. If they want it bad enough, they'll get it.
Think of it like a thief... the cover has very little if any street value. Many are custom to a boat, or just that size and model. I also doubt...

Finally, a SoCal girl! Well, sort of. At least she isn't from Florida
Eric's kidneys had temporarily shut down, but the doctors said they have stabilized since. He's been up and down with this issue for a...
That's pretty close... haha
KRABS!!! Every time you post that, I don't get shit done for hours :D
I agree, the boat is nice but the engines have very little value. They might be awesome engines, but they are what they are unfortunately.
The FICHT was the early technology of the etec. 2004 would have been the last year made before BRP bought out Evinrude, and made their changes....
Fuck that! I'll hoof down the dike a ways and find a bush.
Many years ago I booked an albacore trip on the Holiday, and I clearly remember the crew saying no gps or tracking devices allowed. I doubt they...
I had an older mid 70's 24fb, and I couldn't find the HID# either. I know they are stamped somewhere, but I couldn't find it. My 1980 I have now...
I understand your thoughts, but it's a small price to pay when you figure in the cost of travel from Phoenix, and water travel as well.
Only if it's DH, and it better be 30-50%
70' yes, but th OP mentioned a lack of structure. It is very shallow for a yellowfin, but not unheard of.
Never thought of bolt cutters before, but now I have a good reason to invest on one.
Possibly a schoolie size yellowfin? The water temps you reported would support them, going in circles with head shakes and then maybe bit off?
Here's a link via Facebook that Eric's family has set up. It has a link to a go fund me page as well. They aren't trying to get rich, just make...
Tom Rogers (towerfab). His shop is in Ontario
Thanks Mike, he's been a great friend to me as well. I know if the tables were turned, he would do the same or more for me.
He's the kind of guy...
Thank you guys. He needs as much as he can get
If you want wash downs, you have to Launch from Oceanside. It's close to Temecula, bathrooms and bait are also available. The downside is the bait...
The guy in the back, sitting on the bow is a US Army veteran, father of seven children, and my best friend.
He was shot 13 years ago...
Tomahawk for sure!
Seven gill on steroids
You know you're my favorite ho!
No need for a punch to the twins, rain coats or the pill is a lot more comfortable. Lol
You're first one should...
I was in my buddy's boat one time, sitting on the starburd stern just taking my pet sardine for a swim when this stench fills my aura... I look...
You need to write a book about your brother.
...Shit my brother does
This is a shitty topic!
Done it before, I'll do it again
Quit making kids, and we'll actually go fishing! I'll hook and hand, but you gotta make your own sandwich. ;)
And don't forget, you go where the fish are!
Awesome report, and great write up.
I don't know about you, but I find the most satisfaction from...
Y'all all need to listen up in Warshington where they talk nurmal
Assuming you've seen this, but just in case you haven't, its sea worthy AND in Oakland...
I burp fart and smoke too. Doesn't hurt to ask, and when it gets good, you'll find ho's needed posts on occasion. I've made some good friends that...
You could try ho'n it.
Whatever it was, I hope it got it's fill of sea lion and seals. Hopefully it's calling its big buddies over to hit the buffet
That's good news! The baby killer posts get old fast.
Brandon Haywards one man charters
Eric @ez sport fishing, @live2fish
Saurfish (six pack boat, but four is cool with them)
I agree with Robert and Gary. I'm sure the seiners got their fill, but they can't wrap them all. There's tons and tons of bait fish out there,...
My first YouTube subscription EVER!
You better be worth it! Haha
I've seen some models that show it possible. I would like another shot at them locally again. Swung and missed the last time. A couple buddies got...
Glad someone is getting her. These are cool boats, and I would have come and got her myself.
This is almost as good as the guy who wanted to take a Mako in SoCal from a 16' inflatable
What did you get?
Perch are just part of the game. If they are all you get, try another spot.
Don't use a throw net unless you have a lot of money to pay the...
Sabiki rigs are great for hours of entertainment!
I don't have any tuna in my fridge either... but I got brisket and ribs! BBQ sure sounds good
I'll bet he said that boat had been riding his ass for miles...
That's code for front side of west end... :D
Nice catch bro! The girls look stoked too
We probably saw the same episode
I volunteered last year to cut bait. I brought my family along and we all had a great time.
I don't know if we'll make it this year, but I hope...
I think most people have forgotten the drain plug at some point. Luckily, most can get it in before it's a major issue.
As for repairable......
I saw an episode last year that they did at the lupe. Lots of fat toad yellowtail in that video
More than likely looking in his/her phone.
I'll bet he didn't see that coming! :eek:
I call em bait thievin little fuckers when I'm hoping for a yellowtail
I wonder if enough of us got together, maybe we could convince a company like March Pulleys to make a quality aftermarket set for these engines?
That sir is SEXY!
Rapala's are fish catchers, and have proven their success. No lure is a guarantee, and some just ain't worth shit.
My stupid ass has taken a 17' boat to the 43 many times. Had my ass kicked a few of those times, but NEVER ONCE have I felt unsafe. I know my boat...
Wind speed, swell and time between swells. If the swell is say 2-3' @ 12 seconds, that's pretty smooth. Now if the wind is up to 10 knots or more,...
Hey Ryan, you wanna pull mine too?
I think Cogswell would probably be the best place to get parts if you need them now.
SHIT! My boat is a single screw, and I Cary a spare prop but not a spare prop nut. Probably something I should consider getting a spare of
Dude, that's scary shit! I'm glad they are safe. I'd bust their asses for not calling sooner. Speaking as a dad
I saw this boat on CL. Glad you got it, and welcome to the skippy club! Being that your boat has twins, and not many skips have twins, I would...
I've driven a few of them! Maintained right, they pull just as good as they did with 100k on them.
(FWIW, semi's don't pull their best until...
We're gonna box Catalina to Clemente at 7 knots... I'm gonna need more beer!
Hell, I've tried and tried for these assholes, and I have yet to see a foamer. I have seen them jump though.
There's more events that I forget about too. Look up Dan Hernandez, he does a lot of events in the LA area to introduce kids into fishing. He's...
Dave, there is a kids fishing derby at the crystal something pier in San Diego, usually the last weekend of July. It's free to everyone, including...
It won the pot alright... :_diarrhea_:
I can understand not wanting to shut an engine off on the water. Mine always stays running except when there's bluefin around. I haven't tried for...
You know what they say about moosehead...
Moosehead is better than no head.
Ordered mine today
Thanks Erik! I'm always working when you do these webinars, so it's nice to have it on YouTube.
Slime slide :rofl:
Knowing nothing of escolar, I had to look it up...
It happens. Another set will come up soon enough
Mark, we all do dumb shit whether we admit it or not. People are actually a lot nicer than they used to be, but there's still plenty that will...
I suppose we split it down the middle.
Lakeview, think lake Perris
That's what I was thinking. My seats are decent, but my pedestals are cracked.
If Russ passes on them, I'm definitely interested.
I need the pedestals more than the seats, but I'll take the whole lot, or work a deal with Russ
I couldn't offer any better advice than what's already been given, but I can offer you me and my boat. If you don't have gear, I have it from...
Oh shit! Would be my response if I hooked one, followed by "how can I get my rig back?":confused:
I don't know of many shops out that way, but I hear nothing but good things about Advanced Marine in Costa Mesa.
My buddy Matt @M4TT took his...
This would soak my panties!
I hate to be a downer, but do you guys mean 2018, or is this event going next year?
590 queensway drive, Long Beach
Your boat probably only needs 3-4 feet depth. My Arima dinged the prop in 2 1/2' depth, and I'm pretty sure it's heavier than yours. However, I...
From sunset aquatic, isn't Nacho closer? I've never been to San Pedro bait before, only Nachos
And no bait! Either gotta make it, or ride over to Nacho
