If the wheelhouse episode happened the way you describe then I totally agree with Bill.

I do get the Captains decision. Downhill ride home, all that good area off Carlsbad, across the 312 and 209 with new fish just moving in and comitting time in the most recent productive area. Believe it or not that was a pretty decent course for that day.
joe im fine with fishing an area but he said we were going to look south east than continued to pound an area that was not productive after he said this area was not productive did i mention that when i was brought to the wheelhouse i told him i was next too a guy on a tuna and watch his deckhand cut the guys line on the five that were caught and his response was that he is an inexperence deck hand the guy that was on the fish almost beat his ass.

Disagree brother...

As a fisherman, I don't rely on yelp for anything that has to deal with fishing, be it tackle, party boats, over nigher, 1-3 day, or long range boats, or anything else that may be associated with fishing...

Reason #1:

Many people who do a Yelp review are often the first time, or once or twice a year fisher person, so they don't understand how involved it may be to find fish, or why a boat simply dropped on a rock a few miles from the dock...

Reason#2:
See reason number one.


I do agree, speak with your feet, but if you don't say anything, shit never improves.


If you come to a fishing website, and give a fair, and honest review of the good and bad, I think you are doing a huge favor for fellow fisher people, as well as the boat, and landing. The landings and captains read these posts...they may not always reply, but they read them. And this is where many regular fisher people come also. JMO.

You have a boat, most can't afford a boat so for those people, this might be helpful...

No excuses for any of that BS. You need to call the landing asap and tell them you were "brought" to the wheelhouse and why. That is about the lowest thing I've ever heard happen on a cattleboat.

BTW...am I the only one who thinks my Bigfoot vid is funny? My wife thinks I should seek out professional help. LOL

Up and down boat ladder before, during and after football game. Fishing tomorrow.

I love cattle boat passengers who think the grass is greener on some other spot. It's a big ocean out there. Fish have tails and surprisingly, they move.

We'll said . I agree . I had a similar trip Thursday / Friday 1.5 day. Emailed their web.sight a rather long detailed insight into their operation n waiting for a response before I post anything else. I wish I could have found out better info on BD about the boat because , I looked for a week all over BD ! The I did find was was the opposite of help !...... UNLESS OF COURSE U HAVE NEVER BEEN ON A O.P. TUNA BOAT before this boat would be a great start fer ye ! Then when u get on a good boat you'll know it. Only up from there . Dan C.

yes i did ask him to run the boat.lol driving back and forth to the same 10 padddies and expecting a defferent result is the definition of insanity.yes the commander.bieber thats funny
i have fished many boats and worked on a few.never had such a bad time on a SD boat than yesterday.the fishing was not good yesterday but driving around basically the 277 area from 7 till 2 is not a good choice in my opinion.4$ beers and 7$ breakfast burritos did not help.i understand that the owners need too pay for all the renovations but that is going over board.and too top it all off when i did not tip what the captain told everyone on the boat too tip the crew he called me to the wheel house to ask me why i would tip so little.when i told him why he did not want to hear it.when passangers asked me why he called me to the wheel house i expained why and they all said they would never fish that boat again....niether will i not going to name it but its the newest old boat at fishermans landing im sure you can figure it out.
I cant believe that as a grown man you let the captain call you into the cabin and give you a lecture, I don't give a flying FK if its a BS maritime law or not there's no way i'm taking a verbal beating from anyone on any boat
what the FK is this high school and your getting called into the front office for not doing your home work.
