I chartered the Finfetish for a 6 pack overnight to Santa Barbara island for Good Friday. Got to the island late Thursday night and made squid all night for the next day's activities. We landed 3 good grade yellows and lost a few, as well.

After the morning YT bite slowed, we filled up the bag with rockfish. Finished the day with a halibut/YT drift but no takers. Was a great day on the water and Capt. Brian and Johnny on the Finfetish really worked their butts off to provide a good time.

    I love people with lose lips. Christ almighty people just dont learn.


    Don't you just love lurkers that never post reports complaining about people who do? It's not like he posted numbers to your super top secret seabass spot. This is a fishing report forum, amiright?

    OP just basically blew up FinFetish's program I'm not sure Brian is cool with that I would have checked with the Captain before posting his spots. Especially early in the season with slugs around. I don't see Brian tagging locations in any of his social media posts so I don't think he likes to disclose where they go. He ain't no Brandon Hayward...

    Also I'm not in the business of calling out my spots on Bloody Decks I'm not looking for approval or recognition here bro.

    This bite was being talked about by Mark Wisch on Lets Talk Hookup last weekend way before the OPs report. Why don't you call up the next show and tell them they are clueless? You don't own the ocean, spots or the fish that reside there.

    Are you mad at every report that says "I caught fish at xxxxxx island? 3 yellows and rockfish are not going to get your private spot you seem to own over-run.

    Talk about clueless.....

    Did I miss something here? Where in this post did he give out spots? Santa Barbara Island is what I read. I am sure the charter captain will appreciate any business sent his way. Good on you, you don't give out spots. But I bet you're the first to write 'em down when you see them on here, "bro"

    The Captain has plenty of business and I bet if OP took the time to ask him whether or not he wanted the location posted he would say NO.

    Maybe you need to consider a couple of key words in fishing: Discretion and respect.

    When you are dependent upon other people to put you on fish, you should show DISCRETION and not disclose their locations without their permission (RESPECT).

    Comprende?

    So if I take a charter to Catalina I should not report that I caught anything at Catalina? You seem to be a lib, thinking I need your or anyone else's "permission" to say I caught fish at Catalina. When I post, I want to help put others on fish. "Oh, no! He told people he caught a 30 pound yellow at the Vs before dawn."

    Get over yourself.....
