This went off track.
Never seen that happen here.
Well if you tired of fishing and you want to start catching.
Www.yoursaltwaterguide.com
You never have to suck again.
Unless you want to.

Its not like the Offshore scene is booming right now and we're a couple of months away from a WSB bite and he knows his shit. The guy has helped a lot of googans over time and maybe he can teach them some class and new spots so you won't have to pull some idiot's hoopline out of your props after pulling you hoop because they recognized your boat and bombed your hoops just after you left. Let the guy make a decent living. I'm not sure about the sucking comment does that mean he'll wear the kneepads as a bonus between pulls?:gayfight:

Dave isn’t a bad guy, but like FB, we all have internet warriors out there. Word of advice though Dave, do cut back a little bit, it does get kinda annoying and turns into troll bait for the trolls, and we don’t feed the trolls if we can help it because then they breed.

    So if I "bomb your pots after you leave" I will get more lobster? Just kidding, thanks for all the intel, I do not want to be "that f-ing guy". I am in need of knowledge!

    Not sure if this may help you but this is my style...
    -You've dived before so you should see where the bugs like to hang out. drop around those spots.
    -your first set of 1.5hr is too long. we pull every 20-30min. keep a watch or have the time on your FF and keep it consistent.
    -this may not be the case for san diego, but in LB, the lobsters crawl well from sunset to about 5 hours later. after that 5 hour mark, the crawl slows way down.
    -Find their favorite bait. salmon heads, dines, & macs are the typical. I've also used moldy bacon, fish guts, tuna blood line, and rockfish skin. bloodlines attract seals like crazy. skin actually works damn well for us.
    -rituals are key. we have a specific ritual that includes a lobster dance, certain types of alcohol we can drink, and certain rotations on who drinks first. if all fails, at least we are keeping ourselves entertained.

    hell no....
    There is a spot inside the street cars off Tiorrance that is called the toilet bowls, I will give you 2 guesses on what its made out of...

    and as far as polluting the ocean? isn't that kind of like the ultimate form of recycling? its not like anyone is suggesting putting down fully loaded toilets...
