Good morning

I am looking for one or two folks to fish with me this offshore season. I am based out of San Diego, the Kona Kai specifically, and fish two to three days a week. We target bluefin through September/October and then switch to deep drop swordfish into and sometimes through December. Usually one of the weekly trips are on the weekend and they are free as far as yourself goes as I cover the cost.

Send me a PM if you are interested. Hope to hear from you.

Some pics from last year.

    First off, I have to say that you have an awesome platform for fishing.

    Secondly, your generosity is unparalleled, especially considering what you offer.

    I personally, if considered, promise:
    Not to be late
    Not to barf on your boat
    To give my very best in teamwork
    To not be "That guy"
    To glass all I can while underway
    And, lastly, would graciously scrub the boat without being asked from bow to stern, according to captain's specs.

    PM later.

    Very generous offer. In my experience, the very best guests are the ones that share in the cost.
    I have a great deal of respect for your experience, wisdom, and station in life. That said, this is what I work from:

    "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."

    Still, it would be great to run into you guys at the 307 this summer, say hi and swap intel.

    Oddly, your quote makes my point. I don't want to be treated differently because I am doing something for others (free fishing trips, for example), and would prefer to fish with those who treat others well either way. It would be a mistake to conclude from my comments that I won't readily help those who need my help. I hope our paths cross, perhaps anchored at Pyramid.

    There does seem to be a keen interest in ride sharing activities as of late. Especially from folks like myself who are not looking for a ride or publicly soliciting a crew! Expectations and disappointment are proportionately related and mutually exclusive at extremes, but perhaps a bit more context on what shapes varied opinions, would tamper judgment on either point of view.

    “Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days” A boat doesn’t offer a whole lot of real estate once it leaves the dock, no matter the size. A day of fishing with guests vs. a week of fishing with guests can and does change the captain’s calculus and perspective in crew considerations. Once you get the stink onboard, it’s hard to clean.

    Very generous offer, and beautiful boat BTW.👍🏻

    Marshall,

    Thanks for your fantastic offer. I will fish with you anytime (especially this Sunday :). Incredible offer from a man who knows how to get it done, spins great yarns, fishes like the season closes tomorrow.

    I appreciate you Marsh!

    First off thank you everyone for all overwhelming response. Frankly I‘m very flattered. As much as I would like to get everyone out though, the reality is the number of open spaces on a boat the size of the Westerly is very limited. So with all the response’s I have received to date I am probably set, at least for this season anyway. Again I very much appreciate all the interest. The Bloodydecks community is pretty amazing, that’s a certainty.

    I intend to reach out to everyone who’s expressed in interest in going out. It’s going slower then I would like but we are in our season now and between the fishing and the various things that go with that I’m having to fit calls in wherever I can.

    Thanks everyone again.

    I have had three or four out fishing with me to date and frankly been impressed. Knowledgeable, for that matter some of them are captains themselves, and excellent fisherman. They’ve all been a pleasure to fish with. Honestly I’m sorry I don’t have more space. I’ve learned something from all of them.
