Greetings,
I will have my boat, a well equipped 27 foot walk around in Dana point for august.
im looking for someone to help me learn the fishing scene inshore and out at Catalina. I’ve been plying the waters there for the last few years and am looking for help with taking it to the next level. I did San Clemente island last year but struck out. Due to my ignorance no doubt.
I’ve been a fireman for 30 years and finally get to retire, LAFD. I’m a chill guy, mission focused, and get along best with other firemen or cops (not their fault they stood in the wrong line on career day) I’m from a military family and every hiring board I’ve been on I’ve made sure that veterans are on the top of the list. I even have crayons on board. My wife hates the boat, and kids are too young for anything more than a harbor cruise. If you voted for Biden we can still be friends, let’s just not talk about it.
I value good friends, and hope to learn much. Not gonna be a jerk off just because I own the boat, looking for a team approach.
Would also be stoked to shadow you in your boat! Two is better than one in the deep blue!
If you’ve got your shit together please hit me up!
Smitty

    I am on the water 1 time per week so most likely will be on the water at the same time launching out of Dana Point. I mostly chase BF and don't keep fish until late October so I can hook you up some BF to take home if you don't score.

    Got yellows within 20 mi of DP a few weeks back. Left them biting to look for tuna. Islands are their own thing but offshore is looking primo.

    You just give the Biden supporter the handcuffs and tell them that battery was in DC on November 6th. Point at the terminal “wrists.”

    The Trump Organization is expected to be hit with criminal charges as soon as next week by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance’s office in a case that Trump attorneys say is tied to tax-related conduct, multiple people familiar with the matter tell NBC News.


    Then stop posting political shit in the forums.

    Hey Amigo,

    I have no interest is seeing my post looking for fishing friends get turned into a political hate thread. If you read my original post I said “if you voted for Biden we can still be friends” I meant it.
    please don’t derail my intent to make fishing friends/contacts.
