Name: Nathan Schochet
Location: Los Angeles
Availability: Weekdays through October, Need a day heads up
Contact Info: 818-5882679, return calls within the hour, text ASAP
Smoke/Drink?: Don't smoke. Crack an IPA on occasion and can bring a sixer for the boat.
Experience: Fished Sporties for the past decade. Have all decent gear and trolling gear. I can cut bait, chum, and scrub down a boat. Mainly fished sporties so can't drive and am a below average gaff shot. Got a great attitude, always looking to learn more and am willing to do whatever is needed.
Obviously have cash for gas/bait/expenses, I get that boat ownership is expensive and am grateful to ride a PB versus a sportie.

Thanks for the consideration

Smoke/Drink?: Smoke what?/ Drink... of course(If drinking is not allowed not a problem, but I do BMYOB if neccesary)
References: New to the boat Ho Forum, but have only fished private for the last 10 years. Since my dad and I have owned our own boat. Also fish on the JAD out of Pedro. RyanD on BD can vouch for me also.


Wiling to pitch in for bait/ gas... Will stick around to clean boat. or whatever else may be needed. Usually not in need of boat hos when taking our boat out, but if you are willing to take me along when I am not taking my own out I would be more than happy to return the favor! Have my own gear and trolling rods and rigs.

Availability: WEEKDAYS, Weekends. 2 days notice is ideal for SD, but if you're close to me, a few hours can work.
Contact Info: 714-797-7769
Smoke/Drink? Smoke occasionally, not required / I'll drink depending on the group. If the bites hot like it's been, it's not worth getting sloppy. Guys who can't hold their booze on a boat can be a disaster. But I enjoy a good cold drink.

Contact info: 760-554-six5seven6 or pm me, I'm on everyday(it may be a problem I should address)
Smoke/drink. I don't smoke, you can do as you please. I usually don't drink on a boat, but will share one with you if you'd like.
References: tunajuan, owner of the bait bandit. I know my role, I bring my own bait cutting and boat scrubbing tools, and know it is expected that I do it. I know how to drive and load and unload off of the trailer. I have my own gear, and don't mind sharing if someone needs something I have. I'm good at gaffing and filleting. Let me know what food and drinks you want and I'll bring it. I expect to pay my share of all costs, and if we go enough, I'll start to buy things for your boat just to show my appreciation. Very easy going, and level headed in high pressure situations, i like to have fun, and am happy just to be on the water with good people. Let's go get some fish, thanks in advance for giving me a shot.

13' Avon SeaRider SR4 w/30HP Mariner Commercial Two-Stroke
I've got an Avon Searider SR4 out of San Pedro. It's a 14' RIB. I'm new to San Pedro so looking for people to fish with when I'm not spearfishing or scuba diving (My dive buddies here don't fish hook and line). Sorry but I don't allow smoking on the boat. The boat is good to cross to Catalina in good weather but mostly I'm interested in local coastal trips or possibly trailering to another launch point. I'd like to get out at least a couple times a week. I also have a few ambush lobster traps and would be down to hoop net the odd evening.

Hey sheldon, I live in huntington beach and am avalible in the afternoons on weekdays and most weekends. Shoot me an email when you want to go out and I'd be more than happy to pitch for gas and help clean up/clean fish. I have an 11 foot caribe that I fish off so I'm familiar with fishing from a smaller boat. Tight lines!

Lived here for 6 years and I have been out in multiple trips both private and head boats. I am back out here for training for the next couple weeks and have both of the next 2 weekends open.

In the military so used to early mornings and being on time. Will help out with any and everything that needs to be done. Have experience on boats and not that guy who will be the whiny b---h the entire time if we don't find fish!! Call or text me at 540-538-6761. Thanks and tight lines to all!!

Clyde
Boat
252 GW Sailfish “Rosie”
I'm Clyde. I have a 25' wellcraft walk around. I typically fish 3 on my boat sometimes 4. Boat is on a trailer so I'll go anywhere from Catalina to the hidden to the Salvador knoll. My bait tank keeps bait well and I don't drive like a jackass. We usually get em. Smoking is ok and there will be smoking but very few beers and no dope.
Rules:
no sleeping until we are done. I got up early just like you did.

No bananas

Keep the boat clean and washed down. Grab the brush before the blood is dry.

Don't put your hands in the bait tank. Don't drop the net in the bait tank. Don't put baits that fall on the deck back in the bait tank.

If a troller goes off, brail a few pieces of bait (QUICKLY) before grabbing the troller.

We share the catch equally and we don't keep small fish (baby yellows or tunas)

No bananas.

The guys I go with and myself, we look hard ALL day. It sucks when the new guy wants to chill in the bean bag all day and expects us to spot kelps and birds. Don't be that guy. Anyone that fishes with me can tell you that we try really hard and we don't give up.

Looking for nice motivated eagle eyes experienced crew! Easy to get along with!
I'm Doug I have a 2310 Parker walk around that is dialed in! I live in San Diego and I have been fishing most of my life! I typically fish 3 on my boat sometimes 4 if we're running offshore! 2 in the tower looking! The boat is all rigged with new top of the line electronics,Outriggers,down rigger. 20+ rod holders,Tower, Go- Pro cameras,Radar, 60 gallon bait tank! 150 gallons of fuel! Smoking is OK only in the tower!
No sleeping!!! No shitty gear!!Fresh line on your reels! Nothing worse than losing your fish to old fishing line! If someone needs help gaffing fish that is a priority! Keep the boat clean and washed down before the blood is dry!
Thinking about fishing some tournaments this year with the right crew! It's always nice to meet people before they actually go fishing with me. Stop by for a beer!
Fish mostly during the week but never on a busy weekend!
Send me a message if you're interested in fishing with me! Lazy asses please stick to party boats! Tight lines!
