I am interested in purchasing a fishing boat of my own within the next year or two, so I would appreciate a fishing buddy that could show me the ropes of navigation, maintenance, and everything else that goes along with boat ownership including washing the boat back at the docks

I am more than happy to pitch in my fair share on fuel/food/bait/etc.

Smoke/Drink?: Cigarettes: NO | Drinks: Sometimes
References: None from here, I'm new to this forum. I recently went Salmon boat fishing in Oregon by Gold Beach while I was visiting some friends up there. I was fortunate to catch 2x 12-15lb Salmons during the trip. I have no fishing gear at all. I'm actually in the market to find a decently priced set up. I've fished on/off since I was 5 years of age so I'm not new to fishing at all.

Since my recent fishing trip I've been wanting to go again, but here in So-cal. I also have a bday coming up real soon and would love to go fish out in the ocean with a few friends. If anyone can point me in the right direction, please let me know. Thanks

Im looking forward to getting on the socal fishing scene and hoping to hop on a private boat with some experienced local fisher men.

I've been fishing my whole life and am really passionate about it. I love boats and fishing no matter if it's spotties in the bay or BFT offshore. I have a lot of experience with operating boats despite my age and spend most of my summer as a sailing instructor chasing around kids in a center console. I'm happy to clean your boat, help with gas and bait, I just need to put in time on the water and grow as an angler. I play hockey during the school year so I need a little bit of notice so I can plan accordingly with games and stuff but other than that I'm pretty flexible.

It's been quite sometime since the last time I posted in this thread. I thought I'd update my current status.

I have a couple of overnight trips under my belt now. I'm planning on doing a long range trip sometime next summer. I have accumulated a great amount of gear/tackle during this "off season." I have every outfit from 20lb to 120lb all geared towards YTs/BFT/etc. It didn't happen overnight, but I think I am a tackle ho (not sure if I should be proud or not). I'm currently on winter break from college, so my hours are real flexible. I love to hunt for some BF and YTs while they are still in our backyards. I can chip in for gas and any essentials needed to go on the hunt. I'm also down to scrub down/clean up the boat, especially after the decks get bloody.

Parker 2320 (Terabite)
Looking for flexible/last minute hoes (building a list and checking it twice)
** leaving tomorrow afternoon 2/2/2018, but looking for people for other days as well.

My Boat: Parker 2320 Pilothouse in a slip in Dana Point Harbor with good electronics and a great bait tank. Room for 4, but most times 2 or 3.
Fishing: I'm seeking fishing buddies for local and overnight trips to Cat or SCI.

Name: Dave J
Location: Dana Point Harbor
Availability: Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon (prefer weekdays to avoid crowds)
Contact info: start a conversation with me here and I'll get back to you.
Smoke: Never, strongly prefer if you don't
Drink: Socially, there is always beer on board.
Drugs: Never/don't think about it.
Age: 52

Let's see, the boat is new (6months) with just under 200 hours, so it starts and runs reliably. I fished a lot on party boats, especially the smaller boats and 6 packs if you fished those boats we have probably crossed paths as I used to fish 1-3 times per month. After being part of a boat club for 3 years I bought my own so I could go when I want.

I'll fish everything from local Dana Point to islands (Cat/SCI) and offshore. Work is a little sporadic so trips are almost always decided on with just 48-72hrs of notice. Once I decide to go, I'll go. I don't/won't go out in shit conditions, there is always tomorrow or next week.

I'm looking for people who like to fish, can tell a good joke, take care of their own shit and land their fish or at least willing to learn. Sometimes I have homemade Cheesecake or Apple pie on board. We have good gear on board and most of the things we would need, rod holders, multiple gaffes, big kill bags, awesome bait tank (65g), 137gal fuel, squid lights, etc Fuel/bait costs are split evenly. Get about 2.2mpg..sometimes better at 29mph

Hey Dave, I am a little north of you in Redondo Beach. I just moved down here from Portland. Sold all my fishing gear and boat and looking to get into it down here now. I am wanting to buy another boat but want to see what works best in these waters. In the mean time I would love to get out if you have open seats. You can see my fishing adventures on Instagram @reellentlesspdx Let me know if you need another guy to help out. Previously owning a boat I know my way around and know the costs that go along with it. Definitely hold up my share of the costs. Let me know if you want to have a call and see if I might be a good fit for your crew.

Thanks!

Hey Guys,
I'm looking for EXPERIENCED fishermen who know the waters out of Huntington/LB/Catalina areas. I have a 20' Sea Fox Commander with less than 200 hours. I'm an HB local but as this is my first boat I'm still learning the ropes. What I'm looking for are a few experienced fisherman to become buds that can spread that knowledge to an eager student. I have quite a bit of tackle and rods and am ready to get into some pelagic this season!!! If you're down hit me back! I always have Sundays and Mondays off. I'm also looking for a local club to join if anybody has any info. Take care and tight lines!!!
