Headed out of oside around 6 and the parking lot was empty because everyone was either south on the 9m or north on the 150 - got a full scoop of big macks/dines and made it about 20m offshore by 7am. Caught 12 25-35lb yt (30lb flouro) on the first paddy we pulled up to and were done by 930. Left them still biting because our arms were tired and the boat was full so we passed out the coordinates and went in search of something bigger. Found the something bigger w +80lb breaking bft mixed in w dolphin but couldn't get them to bite. An awesome day on the water tho - sorry no pics

Way to find your own fish. Combat fishing sucks and really defeates the purpose of why most of us escape the day to day grind.

"DID YOU KEEP ALL 12 . really need that much hope you threw back a few too . thats a lot of fish dam ?. b"
I do know of pleny of fisherman who rely only on the fish they catch the pigs, deer, turkey ect. as their only source of protein.
Just sayin'

Sounds like you found a paddy that hasn't been molested. I have a feeling that there is a big area that could produce fish but not many are checking it out.
Great job

Yes we kept all 12. It was 4 of us on the boat and I was making up for all the times I come back empty handed. But make no mistake- everything from the collars to the fish bones (soup stock) got used. We could've continued fishing but I figured 3 per person was plenty- still left lots of them out there for you guys. My last one was taken on spear so I got to take a look, the school was too many to count. I do believe firmly in sustainable fishing practices.

Vigilant32... you give way to much credit, he is none of those, more like a jealous prick because he didn't get any.:slap:

Red Panga Welcome to BD. If your going to post you have to learn to ignore the jealous haters.... there will always be at least one. And get a camera, because here on BD we call bullshit without pictures. :idiot: as if they mean shit

You must be one hell of a fisherman. You guys left biting yellows 'because your arms were too tired and the boat was full' to go look for something 'bigger' so those same tired arms could 'play' with. And of course you found the 'bigger' in form of 80lb+ bluefin.

Alot of sports boats captain would be envious of your accomplishment. I'm sure they would love to make a claim like yours. But then there's all those passengers there with camera phones so it'd be kinda tough. :)

Can't wait until your next report. Opah maybe???

You know what cures fish envy? Going fishing and catching a fish for yourselves.

Question of the day from a fellow Oceanside angler. Do I understand you just headed out of the harbor about 20 miles. I don't like the crowds either. If i am looking normally I go to the Carlsbad Kelp and Canyon then proceed on from there. Not looking for numbers just a general Idea of the heading. It goes unsaid but we all love the tail.

Are you guys seriously asking him to give you numbers of a paddy that is probably miles and miles away from where it was yesterday? Go out looking there's more than one paddy out there.....oh brother!!!
