I would rather go alone and pay for everything than have to go Puppy Dog the Sport Fleet just so your buddy's don't start crying there getting ripped off and that's the only place the fish are. Find your own fish Cry Babies it's a big ocean?Just got off a 1 1/2 day trip on a sport boat from Diego. We went to SCI in the hopes of catching a few of the 50-85lb Bluefin that recently have been swimming around. Captain sets up on a sonar mark. Private boat comes right up on us from about a mile away. I would say about 200 feet off our stern. They were EXTREMELY close. We asked that he move further away. Captain said over the pa system that we are just going to hurt each other if and when any fish decide to bite. Thankfully, the crew immediately stopped two passengers from dangerously responding and throwing things at the other boat. Sure enough, we immediately got bit. Two fish hanging and the private boat tangled both of them. We lost both fish. Our captain was surprisingly very calm when he asked the private to get further away again. No avail. The private got bit. Unfortunately, their 1 fish wrapped about 3 of our lines. Thirty seconds later they lost their fish. Combined total score, 0 fish for 3 hook ups. Seriously, what the F. Both boats are over 60 miles from the mainland in the open ocean and we are doing this crap to each other? We asked them to move again. They fired up the engine and moved to about 150-200 feet off our bow. Yes, I'm talking feet not yards! They were REALLY REALLY close. You didn't need a pa system and didn't have to shout in order to have a conversation. They lost one more due to their arrogance and we lost one more because of them. They still wouldn't leave us alone. We left for another area. Temporary total score, 2 boats, 0 for 5 hookups. Thank you very much. We ended up with a couple fish a couple miles away but we were obviously concerned about the same boat tracking us down. Perhaps after loosing a couple 50-85lb tuna themselves they thought maybe they should fish more than 200 feet away from other boats. They certainly didn't care about the 3 fish they cost us. This occurred on Thursday 10/6 several miles off San Clemente Island. I'm not saying all private boaters are a problem. I'm describing the behavior of only ONE obnoxious individual private boat operator out of the 1000's of private boat owners that exist in California. I'm thankful that I'm not running a sport boat in order to make a living.
