Chris brings ho's to a new level. Can't wait for the warm donuts!Hello,
My name is Chris and I live in Corona. I apologize in advance for how long this post is but I felt I should give you as much info as possible because I want to go fishing with you. You are going to have a hard time finding a better boat ho than me.
I show up early (usually with warm donuts), fully prepared with my gear and a small cooler with sandwiches, snacks, waters, and sodas for all. If needed, i can also bring a big bag of ice.
I usually fish with 2 buddies on an 18' Scout but the Captain has been rather busy lately with his Daughter's sports. Normally, I prepare the boat (while the Captain is still sleeping) which includes hooking the boat to the truck, taking off the battery charger, putting in plugs, loading all of our gear, tightening the rod holders (if needed), and any other task that needs to be done. Capt. wakes up, does last minute check, and we hit the road.
Hit the gas station, fill up and I hand over cash without being asked (my third). Get to the dock, I pay my portion of the parking costs without being asked. I back the boat in while Capt is on board. Once launched, I park the truck making sure to park in the lines to avoid tickets, make sure all valuables like spare tire/jack, big cooler, and washing gear are secured in the cab then lock up and head to the dock.
Once we are in the harbor, I will make sure the antenna is up, perform radio check and start cleaning boat with a bucket to get off the dust. This also will confirm bilge is working. I pay my third of the bait costs without being asked, I dont put my hands in the bait tank, nor do I leave the net in there. I bring a kitchen trashbag and HATE to see litter hit the ocean.
During the ride out to the destination, i will usually rig everyone's rods up (depending on how bumpy it is). I can tie plenty of knots really well and all you have to do it tell me how you want each rod set up. Knock on wood, me and crew haven't lost fish due to a bad knott.
I am courteous when fishing, a team player who wants to put fish on deck. I clear rods when bent, I am good with the net and gaff and dont keep anything close to being short. I keep the boat clean all day with a rag/bucket and dont let blood dry. I dont leave tackle around and certainly dont let heavy sinkers roll around or bounce on the boat. I am happy to pull the anchor multiple times but expect help if I have to pull anchor in excess. I dont smoke and might have a beer if you offer and twist my arm a tiny bit. Usually dont drink more than 1 beer if that.
Hopefully we put fish on the boat. If we do, I will clean/fillet the fish (with my fillet knife) and put into gallon ziplock bags I brought. I prefer to do this in the harbor then hit the boat one last time with the bucket and rag to clean off guts. Make sure antenna is down.
When we hit the dock, I'll go get the truck, back it up, help get the boat on the trailer then pull over to the wash (hopefully there is a wash). As a team, we soap up and brush the boat clean, tighten drags when wash down rods/reels (dont forget to loosen drags once rinsed off), put rod/reel covers on, pull plugs, put away fish finder, and make sure the boat is ready for the ride home.
Im available most Saturdays and can travel anywhere from San Diego to San Pedro. I am a super nice (and funny) guy, willing to work and play hard. I know how to troubleshoot issues that come up, and can improvise to make fixes if needed. I care about your boat like its mine, but care about safety more than anything and respect the ocean immensely. No doubt I will be one of your regulars if I boat ho for you one time.
