    "back in the day" this board and others were fishermen helping fisherman. Now it's "hey I caught a fish and if you pay me I'll tell you where"....to that I say "fu"....

    fish dope was the start of the non share era... but for a good reason..
    still a lot of good info here...
    fisherman who charter , most do not share , and it's understandable.
    we are very lucky to have all the fish so close to home...
    also if you post numbers , you will have a 100 boats pushing down the fish..
    there is still plenty of great info on this board.
    most good fisherman know the general vicinity of the fish.
    just knowing fisherman are catching fish and not getting skunked is good indicator...
    most time numbers are a day old and the fish have moved..
    some some positive thoughts..

    Don't worry about the parasites

    Good to hear on April 8th you encountered 35-45lb bft up top on the surface and saw big volume. Also great to hear you saw some bigger units and that the fish ate live bait

    Nice to have good weather in early April

    Thanks for the report. Going to be a good year up there. Got two 3 days coming up. This gets me pumped.

    Yah the new arrivals burn allot of fat durring travel and will pack higher fat content as they settle in

    Now go put someone on a fish of a lifetime who doesn't own a boat and posting a map afterwards is not necessary imo

    If you’re good at something, never do it for free.
    Nice work finding AND catching!

    Maybe all the haters should go get their captains license first before they talk about sharing and caring.

    I’m on the shogun from the 16-20th, hoping this is just a break in the action due to the weather and then they are back on again, hopefully!!! Hoping!!!! Shoot I can’t sleep!!!
    BFT! I’m counting them!! Swimming thru a massive bait ball, shooting through actually... eating insanity, and then I get bit, I fight it for awhile and then see it’s a 15lb yellowtail... ahhhhh..LOL

    If you're on the water and get bit by a fish who rips line off your reel... it's all good.
