EDIT:
Since I’m getting shit on for asking, my reasoning for the following rules is mine, and mine alone, it is private, and is not anyone’s business. My boat, my rules, If you don’t like it, you are welcome to continue scrolling and not comment.

For anyone who DOES want to go or is interested, as the title says, anyone want to join us sometime? My friends (with the exception of 1 or 2) are all flakes and always no show, plus they never help with the setup or takedown. If you want to go hooping sometime hit me up, the boat is in Newport, we usually just go along the jetties, but sometimes we’ll be adventurous and go down toward crystal cove. All I ask is you help with the cleanup afterward. That and no alcohol or smoking (sorry but I hate both of those). Otherwise, if you do your fair share, you’ll likely be invited back, because I’m always looking for people to go with me be it on my Whaler or on the big boat.

Very nice of you Robdog1!

Glad I have my own boat to smoke and drink those beers . . . responsibly. :lux:

"fish enhancement"

"psuh"
I'm out also, a little rigid for me, yep got my own boat to do what ever I/We (me and my fishing partner Bryan want to do). It doesn't have to be illegal to have/be fun! I agree, nice offer.

Do you ever come to SD and launch? Lobster or fishing. I have my own sled and go weekly, atleast fishing the bay for a day. Sometimes I go alone though, unless it’s hooping. But always down to get out and would love to meet another dude who just enjoys being on the water.

Maybe you should lighten up with some your policies or something else!! You seem to be always looking for people, either to invite again or If they want to go again on your boat? Their are countless people on this site for people looking to go with someone who has a boat, And paytheir fair share along with cleaning the boat afterwards. People should be begging you to go on your boat/boats. It seems it's the other way. I,m not trying to be rude about this, but something is not right. Every person I take on my boat (I don't charge anyone), They are always calling me wanting to go again and, Have said they will pay for everything. You should ask the past people why thy don,t come back or flake on you. This is constructive criticism and I'm not bashing you.

I go with you if you’re in San Diego area. Bummer.
What’s with so many who’re so obnoxious when the guy is making such an incredible offer?

Never in the whole LA area. Just SD bay and pretty lucky here most days.
Would love to go in your 32’ for big BF next year. My 22’ whaler has a Honda 225 and holds only 70 gallons, so the range is questionable for SCI

I don’t see anyone being obnoxious, people are just giving their open and honest opinions. You seem to feel pretty strong about this. Why don’t YOU step out of your comfort zone and drive up to Newport and hop-on and support Robert? It’s obvious to me why Robert states his friends flake, and I’m in no way saying Robert needs to compromise his personal beliefs, principles, and/or morality. Some might say don’t throw fish in the library. Have a great day Billy!

I have thought about dragging my boat up there to try something different, and maybe learn something. My usual days for hooping are Tuesday and Sat. night. Seems like Rob has proven successful at finding the bugs. This is very generous offer, and I guess it will save me towing up there. I will PM you and see if we can set something up. I need to see bugs coming over the rail, and learn some different styles. I have had 3 strikes down here! Thanks!

Maybe, Maybe a better description would be ‘strongly dislike’ both of those. But considering I’ve threatened to take my friends vape and toss it a couple times after he was blowing smoke all over, I actually do hate it (with him I can threaten that since I’ve known him forever, he gets itLOL) cigarettes more than vapes though. I hate the smell more than anything, and as for the alcohol, what you do on your time is up to you, but I have my reasons, which are better left private:hali_olutta:
