This story begins on Saturday the 29th. Just like everyone else i was looking forward to the beginning of hooping season. One of the few things i look forward to each year. Got to the ramp and the boat wont start. Whats that i hear? sounds like a fast spinning whining sound. damn starter wont engage the motor. Engages for 1 second then drops down. Thats strange. It started right up at the house the day before and ran for 10 minutes. then started again and again. i drive from chino to Huntington beach and the shit dont work no more. :mad::mad::mad:. oh well. leave the boat at the boat yard then pack up and go home. Ordered a starter on amazon for $90. Drove back down on 10-3 to replace the starter and take her out. I replace the starter. ok now shes turning over but wont start. WTF? Check the fuel line squeeze the bulb but dont hear anything squeeze it some more until i hear fuel. Try to start her again and she starts right up. finally.

ok so now i Head out to chaffee island to Hoop a wreck thats right in front of it. 32ft deep. Dropped 3 nets there. Ran over to the wreck in the middle of Nowhere. Dropped 2 nets there. Picked em up every 30-35 mins. Left at 730. 1 legal and 2 shorts. Met a nice guy named Jim who was hooping chaffee island on a kayak. He said he had 1 legal when i left. Gave him a left over salmon head for bait. he said a dog ruined one of his cages. Hopefully ill have some good karma next time i go out.

I got a boat , gear and looks like we look for bugs in the same area.
Hit me up if you ever want to go look for them together. I know there’s tons of bugs in that harbor. Just need to find my own honey holes.

    Can’t believe this got out. I’ll move 40 yards west of it...onto my own secret spot.

    That area has brain damage with all the transducers running over it, and parking on it.

    Everyone go hoop the TRIPLE Palms on Chaffee! 2 shorts a night gay-ron-teed!

    I will be driving up from San Diego for the action tonight.
    Do me a favor stay in San Diego ,Better off why don’t you go back to Florida. This is why I don’t go out bloody decks anymore because idiots like you and stupid replies. I’ve been hoping that place for years right tide ,Easy limits, Plus it’s 15 minutes from my house.
