    Close to home. Don't think you'll get more unless you subscribe or pay like fishdope.

    You're absolutely right. There is plenty of little details in this post to help out fisherman. Thanks for your attention to detail

    Ive actually got some of my best clients from Instagram. Its a great platform to interact with my followers and fellow fisherman on a daily basis. It may not be for all, but for me...Im able to connect with others on a much more personal basis.

    To each their own I guess......

    Absolutely blacked it out on purpose. I don't post the gps numbers publicly and no, not trolling for customers. Im not a paid advertiser on this site so I respect their rules and members.

    And that's my exact reason for trying to post more on here is to be able to connect with other fisherman just like you.


    Thanks for the kind words.

    to be really honest...the seasonings were good but the fish was very sub par. very little fat in these fish so far. But thats going to change very soon.

    If this helps anyone out, The Old Glory was only 63 miles from San Diego last week when they got limits of Bluefin. Check out marine traffic. Look where the Shogun was early this morning fishing at 1:15am (looks like 45-50 miles from the point), they left the dock the day before at 200pm.
