    Hey all.... A help little please.
    Looking for a recommendation for a good boat and Captain to chase long fin out of Santa Cruz this August, Sept.
    Live bait and ICE is a must.
    Morro Bay getting to far to drive any more, but certainly not out of the question.
    Sorry if I posted to the wrong forum!!

    Cheers

    fish on sport fishing (408-348-4866), Capt. Tom will put you on the fish when they show up, he's been looking hard, but nothing yet. he has a 23 Stieger (Sara Bella). no live bait though. The Kahuna out of Moss Landing sometimes will get live bait but you have to call carol and Donny to find out.

    If there's Tuna around, CApt Tom is your best bet.

    Kahuna out of Moss Landing. Slayed them last year. Best boat out of Monterey Bay for tuna.

    On the call list for Kahuna and Virgs .... The tune can get pretty big out of Morro once the schoolies pass through

    wow! I have every intention of running a 23 footer off shore. we run a '23 parker up to 80 miles. I like the fact I'm not sniffing diesel all day, but if you must the kahuna is your option.

    I am a charter Capt. here in Monterey Bay as well. Tom (sara bella) is an xcellent capt. Tom fishes Albacore more days than the rest of us. If you are not comfortable on a 4-6 pac boat (21-35'), you should fish the party boat (Kahuna). Different strokes for different folks. Been out a number of times on much less boats way beyond 50nm. Get on a party boat if you feel unsafe on a smaller ride. But please don't bash the smaller guys that you have ZERO experience with. To each, their own.

    Andrew,

    As you know. This site has lots of opinions. We don't need any more opinionated people up this way. Let them fish the party boats. Saves the rest of us the headache. See you on the outside when they show.

    Was not intending to single anyone out. To answer your ?. There are a few of us 6 pac guys left. (Myself-Carey-On Charters, Tom Fish-On Sportfishing, Kahn Nor-Cal sportfishing, and Tom Megabite sportfishing. Live bait is very limited up here. When it is available most of us bring it. The six pac boats are a different experience than the party boats. Smaller? Yes. More personable? Yes. Gear is included on 6- pac. Not on Party. Fish leave my boat in sushi quality. None of us have found any Tuna yet. Hopefully soon as Tuna make up a good portion of our income. Hope you do well when you make your trip. My advice would be to not avoid the private charters. Good luck too you sir.

    Jon I completely agree,
    people asks question than act ungrateful when people try to help them out.
    Jon, see you on the outside

    Alex, you have quite an opinion on what boats he shouldn't go on (any '23 charter), yet you haven't suggested one charter for the fella, why don't you contribute to the cause rather than being a thorn in the side.

    Hey Stella, I just got my parker 2320 a few months ago. Was wondering what motor you have and what kind of mileage you get?

    Alex,
    the OP asked in an open thread which boat, if he wanted just your opinion why didn't he just pm you and omit the thread. why would you keep your suggestion a secret? It seems that you are more concerned with a stand up head to shit in than a stand up captain to put you on the fish.
    you remind of conversations I've had with a fella named rodman28, who knows maybe there are two of you out there,
    but if not makes no sense why you would change your name on BD.

    I didn't know we had previous encounters, refresh my memory. I find it amusing that you have nearly as many negative points on BD than you do positive, seems you like to start the drama.

    I'm not here to stir the shit, just trying to help out. If you are local, great, hopefully we'll see each other at the dock some morning. better to have friends on the water rather than enemies.
    tight lines Alex
