Seemed like an appropriate thread for this. Sorry if it's not.
This guy is planning on launching his project this summer. Sounds like a solid plan. Hopefully it works. Cool stuff.
Edit: Will be getting out on the skiff soon, hope to have some entries.
My fail for not knowing how to use the posting. I am a newbie to the site. New owner of a Pursuit 325OS. Pulled 6 "Congrats Graduates" mylars and a couple of feliz navidads out of the water on our way to 9 mile off of San Diego yesterday. Didn't take pictures as I did not know there was a raffle. Just thought it was the right thing to do even though we tangled our troll lines circling around to pick up a balloon after a failed gaffe. The marine life was amazing. Lots of blue whales. Lets keep them safe............as well as the turtles and all else.
First catch of the day!
Banner day for us on Sunday. We did a slalom run out high-speed gaffing and got 14 for the day. Even stopped to pick up a full trash bag someone decided belonged in the beautiful ocean....
Managed a couple of fish too!
Wide open balloons today. 23 total.
Fishing was more like watching.
7/12/18 off Encinitas-ish to N9 (sorta) towards182...
7 mylar and 1 rubber balloon
Found Wilson’s long lost cousin today ......
The Marlin Clubs "Trash & Tuna tournament was a success
A pretty good amount of trash was brought in
The Grand winner was a large bag of Onions
I took a picture of the collected trash and our contribution-More trash was added after I put the camera away for evening
Great tournament-Thanks Marlin Club
I got 1 balloon and 1 yellowtail!
1 balloon, 4 bags, a pfd, and a plastic chair (not pictured) were the result of today’s trip to the kelp.
My first balloonfish of the season. Caught on Nine Mile bank. It was fooled by a West Marine Boat Hook. Water temp 73 and clear.
Free gaffing balloons!!
Got one from Disneyland outside Santa Barbara harbor earlier this week!
Pulled 3 on Friday off of UCSB....
I pick up every balloon I find while out on the water, and I find a lot. It’s sad! I don’t want any raffle tickets, I do anyway. Every one I see gets picked up.
Does picking them off the beach/harbor count
