Last night was just another beautiful night in the SM Bay...flat calm water until about 7:30pm when that wind swell from the Malibu area finally made it down here.
It was a really fun night we had double limits and threw 6 legals back and we started off about an hour before the sunset with some Bonito action...

Then we dropped the nets as the sun was going down and did two sets of 10 and were off the water by 8pm.
We had a couple of nice bookend biggies...

and lots of other quality bugs along with some big dinner plate size Red Crabs..

Gotta love that ACE LINE HAULER with the new Bull Dog attachment...those 200' ropes just coil themselves right on the deck for a fast easy wrap at the end of the night.

Those line haulers are nice, unfortunately they will probably be illegal for lobsters next season without an approved medical condition. Which means I will need to find somebody in oregon or washington to buy mine.

Not True Philip....Bad Info...!!!
The DFW decided NOT to included the disability requirement on the haulers when they make their presentation of the proposed regulation changes to the DFG Commission. The Lobster Advisory Committee was informed of this decision recently.
AND...if any reg changes are made thru the LAC proposals...they will probably take place in the 2015-16 season.
Enjoy that hauler this winter and in the future too! Which one do you have?

Nice vermilion extra reds. Looks like a blast. Please share on how you had the Bonita, or were they lobster bait?

Hard choice on the bones.........done right they are very tasty. Do what I do. Clean em, throw the fillets on ice and use the carcasses for bait. looks like a nice night you had. Obviously dropping deep. Of course when it comes to hooping you wrote the book, literally! haha

Thanks Jscrib...I saw your photos on Vince's post... as usual, you guys caught some nice fish!
It looks like that new kid has you running...you look a little thinner.
Reel hip...that's exactly what I do...fillet the Bones to eat then use the heads and carcass for lobster bait.

Jim, first thanks for all your hard work on the LAC!! Without you there who knows what we would be seeing come from the DFW.

Looks like another great night on the water and because of YOU pounding on the LAC I get to keep my Ace line hauler!
I have just one question, how deep were you pulling. I have 3 sets of ropes 100, 150, 200. I have yet to use the 200' in SMB?
Once again THANK YOU for your time dealing with the head strong LAC people.

Thanks Ron...PM sent.
I've got pretty bad arthritis in both wrists so the Ace Line Hauler is a God send for me, and no way was I going to lose it for some unsubstantiated reports from the commercial sector!
