    Phenix Black Diamond Rods

    NICE! Any particular reason you make them 9.2 instead of a straight 9'? bigjake, how do you know they are coming with a 9'er? Do you know when they'll be out? Also, do you happen to know the specs? I'm thinking maybe I should wait for the ho show in March to pick'em up. Just don't know if I...

    All Laguna will be closed

    Stanley, thank you for your response in support of Chugey. Chugey, sorry for the mistrust, I just don’t know who to trust nowadays and who not to trust. I love fishing Laguna and the last thing I want to do is provide ammo to the folks who want to close the fishery I so love and cherish...

    All Laguna will be closed

    I responded to your other thread as I just assumed you were assisting in helping preserve the fishing in Laguna Beach. Is this an accurate assumption? Once responses are gathered from this thread, what specifically do you intend to do with the information gathered? Which side of the fence do you...

    Laguna Surf fishing

    Chugey, First off, thank you for your efforts in the MLPA process! I fish Laguna religiously and the thought of them m^*&%^%+(s shutting down Laguna just sickens me. I don't want to see any of Laguna shut down, but if I had to designate or choose an area, I would reluctantly suggest shutting...

    Newport surf fishing...getting started?

    Hey bro, I fish the surf quite a bit and would suggest an 8'6 "Salmon/Steelhead" rod rated 8-17lb. If you're specifically just targeting the BSPs and Corbina you can easily go lighter but stay with the extra length for distance. I rock hop for bass along our coast 90% of the time and use an...

    Can anybody say "BONITO"

    Now that's a BiggetyBone! Shhhhweeet! Nice job! Tight Lines! BiggetyBones

    Bonito on the pier of ob.

    Nice Bone! Did you see anybody else catch any Bones. I miss the Bones being that size. Used to fish Redondo back in the day when the bones were abundant. Huge schools. Now I rarely see them. And when I do see'em, they are the micro bones. Tight Lines! BiggetyBones

    Nice variety of fish! Tight Lines, BiggetyBones

    bass and butts OC 9/03

    Dave, nice day of fishing! Haven't seen any posts by Jeff in quite sometime. Was hoping he didn't get eaten out there on the rocks. It can get hairy quick! I'd say the last 3 outings over there sucked for me. Bass had lock jaw, except for one short sandie. Were the chovies thick to shore?

    Knife Jigs

    I just picked up 2 of the 200g model's from Charkbait. I got the blue (sardine) and the green and yellow. I've already watched the video clip of Shimano's Butterfly jig with Jose W and they recomend the fast crank, pump, crank, pump. Was wondering if any else has had the chance to use them, and...
