Hey,

Not sure where to post this or if there is a better place. I have access to some fishing boats, but I am green to fishing. I am wondering if anyone would be willing to teach me a few things in exchange for some trips on the boat? I have access to a 22’ or 24’ Key West (center counsel) and a Defiance Admiral series (pilot house).

Thanks!

Sounds good where are these boats located? What days are you looking to go out?
How well are the boats maintained?

I am located in San Diego. I have boats at Dana Landing, but most of them are at a marina on Harbor Island (near the airport). I am in a boat club and the boats are well maintained. They have a full time maintenance team that keeps the fleet ready to go. Due to the extremely high use, the boats are sold every 2-3 years. This year alone we have received 8 or 9 brand new Key West and 1 brand new Defiance. They have bait tanks, decent amount of rod holders, and all of them are equipped with Simrad for navigation/sonar. We also have a few “older” boats, by that I mean 4 or 5 years old. The boats are Cobia, Parker, and dual counsel Key West. We have a 50 mile offshore limit, so the Mexican Islands are easily in range here. The other cool thing is I have access to boats all over the country. There are boats in Huntington Beach/LA area, Ventura (near Channel Islands), and up in San Francisco.

    DM me if you want a great guy to go out with in SD AND who is also in the same boat club. He loves to fish, loves to teach fishing, and is available at a moment's notice because he is a business owner.

    Hint: it's not me. LOL

    I am new to Offshore fishing and not sure where to post this. I have only done party boats locally to Catalina Island and I am tired of the people on the boats tangling my lines and just not really paying attention. Trying to see where I can find people going on 1 day trips where i can tag along and learn. Willing to pay gas, food, beers etc.

    First a heartfelt thank you for your service.

    I'm knee deep in a major overhaul but when the boat is ready your welcome on my rig. I'm in Long Beach/LA.

    Thank you for defending our nation. I am glad you want to get out and fish.

    Place your information on the the Boat Ho List thread.

    People are always looking there for capable crewmembers.
