I wonder who the original poster is for real?

Dude this obviously isn't your first or only post here at BD. How about letting us know who you really are?
Wouldn't be hard for the mods to pull their IP address and find out. Regardless, they're trolling hard and people are falling for it.

If you were OG you would have learned years ago that you cant group all boats the same, some suck and some are good. You would have learned to find the good captains and sleds as well as never go on an open party for the rest of your life.(or take the real lesson and get your own boat) Those in the know let the kooks jump on the boat that the landing gives you...

I’d say jackpots are going away as much for the “OG” anglers sniveling about who won, and for outright cheating, as much as anything. Boomers and Gen X get to own that, too, if you have to get all generational about it, lol.

That's why they call it fishing trip and not a catching trip. Because only fishing is guaranteed and not the later. I personally NEVER do jackpot anyway and often get the stank eye when I decline on boats that offer it. I am probably not going to win anyway and I am not going to give it away in the small chance I do, so why bother! Maybe you didn't drink enough beer because EVERYTIME I have been out on a boat the food has been killer. I do agree with you though when you say to pick boats that you are familiar with. Get to know the boat, the Capt and the crew and chances are you wont have a bad trip.

If your first post is to bitch about not catching, how bad the boat, and more crap. Go and delete yourself or better yet quit fishing and there are markets where you can purchase your fish. Just say you caught them to make yourself feel better.

    I have had experienced jacked fish counts in Long Beach... I was on a boat that posted limits of squid and in reality we landed about 6... this was a few years back... had it happen on a 3/4 day out there as well... this happens not all of them are honest but I have fished many times on different boats and landings in San degio were the days were tough maybe 2 to 4 fish landed and that was the fish count posted... it’s called fishing not catching some days are great some are shitty it’s just the way it goes...

    If you are not satisfied with the fleet get yourself into your own boat... then you will appreciate what sport fleet has to offer..

    If you believe the fish counts you’re a fool they’re running a business and no one knows for sure except the deckhands how many fish are down below, times have been hard for the sleds and fisherman are a bunch of liars. OG my ass!!

    The way fishing is right now they definitely don't need to lie about the fish counts. Check the fish report for the Royal Star for Sept 14th and 15th. They boated 60 fish over 100lbs including 4 over 200 with one that went 280. They also had some more in the 30 to 50lb range, all for 22 anglers. The report is spot on. There are photos on the Royal Star web page and a friend of mine was on the trip and he sent me a PM with the numbers and photos. 60 fish over 100lbs is a score in line with 6 and 7 day Guadalupe trips when the fishing there is really good.

    Agreed. I know the charter master, his sidekick, and maybe half the people on the boat. My wife and I were on the trip the last 2 years. Absolutely epic BFT fishing. Randy is in a league of his own when it comes to finding bluefin...
