Exactly Chris don't let this p.o.s. get to you we all know people grow an extra sack when they are jealous and can't get out and fish anymore, let alone slay every trip and have 25 plus customers go home happy with smiles from ear to ear. Was lucky enough to ride earlier this year and if I can somehow get my weekend off ill be seeing you soon, ps a mid week trip would get off the dock too haha

Bring tons of yoyo irons Blue and White, Scrambled Egg and Chrome on 40 to 50 lb rigs with 6 to 1 retrieve and don't set the hook just keep winding on iron fish as the Yellows are from mid water to bottom till late in the day when the come up a bit but target that zone till skipper tells you where there are late in the day. Also 40 to 50 lb out fit with a 10oz sinker on bottom and 4 inch dropper loop with 5/0 hook and live Sardine. Work the water Colom with this set up as you hit the bottom wind up 10 turns wait 20 seconds and come up another 20 turns to find the fish and you will land Lingcod and Reds all day long at Collonett, if you go to San Martin for first day don't have any info other than last week the Vagabond had good Yellowtail fishing with Lings and Reds.

Actually you implied one boat was waaaaaaay better than another. That is what started the shit storm...you are 100 percent entitled to your opinion but don't act like what you said would not be found offensive by another captain...and it was...one needs to be cognizant when making those type of statements...that just how I see it..by the way, nice fish!

And by the way, lots of boats are better than others. That's why I have 4 boats I fish....they are good and I know what to expect every time...I think maybe what you were thinking just came out in writing...jmo...:)

Yes Capt. and thank you, We will be at San Martin the 1st day than should move on up the hill. thanks to you capt we are looking to fish this trip every 1st of the year.
As we all know capt. Randel, we have had some great trip with you, and up to date no other boat has beat your numbers or our numbers. For the record I have been moving our group around because they have requested these moves, so I try to meet the groups request, so far everyone says that fishing these waters with you capt. have been the best. Like our trip where we put 134 lings on one trip and the size of Lings were off the charts.
Capt. I will continue to fish with you and your crew when I can.

All we ask for is the lord watch over us and we have some good look.
Thanks Capt.

Cool shit hector .. Glad u made the switch to the tg80 .. Wayyyyyyyy better !!
Hey, well some of our group requested that we try another boat and that is what we are doing. We will see how things go and just hope we have some good luck and a safe trip.
All boats have some good and some bad things,
Please just wish us luck.
And good luck to you this year in fishing the waters.
Hector

I fished with my friend on one of your charters two summers ago and Im hoping that I can fish with you guys sometime soon. I just have been pretty busy lately. Good Luck. Chris, I fished with you once on Hector's charter and it was a great trip. But us on the bluefin and thats all i could ask for. I wanted fish and i came home with some nice tuna. Thanks
