    Fishing thread

    Here's the official GermanBoost Angler's Club!

    I'll just start off by posting whatever I find in my phone


    Here's a snook. A powerful and fun fish to catch. Also very delicious. Good luck finding a keeper.

    Spanish mackerel. Very plentiful here in the gulf. They're really fast and they move around a lot, especially once you pull them out of the water. Gotta watch out for those teeth and my hooks when they flap around. On a good day, they'll bite all 6 flies on the sabiki. I've caught so many in a day, I'd have to give most of them away. Limit is 15. I keep the ones over 16'' on a good day. 12'' fork is the legal min.

    Here's a bonnet head. I'll keep them if they're over 3ft. They're delicious.

    Here's a skate. It's like a stingray but no poison barbs so they're safe to handle. Great shark bait. Some English dude at the pier told me they eat them but I wouldn't. The meat is tougher than squid and their skin is rough like coarse sandpaper with sharp bumps and spikes. Fun to catch though. Hook a fin and maybe slice a bit off and let it swim back out in hopes of hooking up a big shark.

    Finally we got one of these going!

    I'm a terrible fisherman but love to fish. I just like to be out on a boat somewhere with nobody around and a couple good friends.

    Anyone know any good spots in SoCal to fish?

    Some of your pics are broken due to the strings on the end after the .jpg. Just eliminate those and the pics will post fine.

    Please edit those 2 posts for me. I'll be more careful now

    OK, I think I see what you mean. It's misleading on my end due to the cookies or whatever

    Some big jacks I kept for shark bait. I used them but I never got that huge shark I hoped for.

    Click here to enlarge

    Edit. Imgur is being retarded

    I keep uploading pics and they flip around the wrong way, so I have to edit them, then the link gets screwed up!!

    I just double checked on my phone, it seemed to work but then it expired on my comp and then on my phone after reloading the page...

    I'll have to do something else so I don't keep ruining every post. Also not being able to edit in time or being able to remove the post to make a do-over is aggravating. So I can't fix them on my own. Now I'm pissed off. I'm going outside

    Sorry bud I'd fix it for but once it is imported I can't. It's better to post from your comp with this type of thing.

    Vintage Penn Senator 14/0

    Beast reel loaded with 200# mono
    I don't miss lugging this thing around but it's a lovely piece just to look at Click here to enlarge

    Almost the same reel from the movie Jaws. That was a 16/0 which is the same diameter, just wider.
    Unfortunately, I didn't get any action on this reel. I put it up for sale right here on this forum. Some dude who wasn't a member and happened to have an M3 stumbled on and registered here to buy it from me. Pretty cool. I hope he put it to good use. ( forgot his name but I could dig if I cared )

    I could tell you what to use as bait for sharks, but as a diver I really want to urge you NOT to fish for sharks at all.
    They are having a really bad time being finned for soup. They are being killed by the hundreds of thousands and their numbers diminished due to finning and bycatch.
    Did you know some Chinese fast food chains have real sharkfinsoup on their menu. You know what that does for the demand of sharkfins?
    It has come so far they are now catching Mantas and finning those gentle giants just to keep up with demands.

    If this goes on all that is gonna be swimming in the ocieans is squid. They are the next upcoming species if sharks disapear, are realy aggressive and have a very fast metabolism and grow rate.
    Fishing for squid is not all that entertaining...

    Penn Senator 9/0 (black) and 6/0 (red)

    Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Got the 9/0 and the rod (which is pictured with the 6) from a local custom rod builder who brought it out to give to Capt. Chancey from ESPN to use for Jewfishing. He has a few memorable vids of the Strongman Competition guys busting rods on goliath groupers.

    Yes that is very devastating. I'm not a poacher or even a food monger. I'd only keep certain species within a certain size range of about 3-5 ft. I've only killed 3 and they fed the family. Very much enjoyed.

    +1 Sharks are very important for sealife balance. But humans will eventually rot them out I fear.

    I hope to see some "lemon sharks" when I go diving next week in Bora Bora Click here to enlarge

    Hehe, that's nice! Yes it's a very long trip to Polynesia and quite expensive, but it's on my "things to do in life list" Click here to enlarge My GF introduced me to diving last year, so I'm still a novice. In February I was on the Maledives. Quite amazing too!

    This picture was taken with our previous camera, a Sealife DC1000
    We upgraded last year to a compact Olympus PEN PL2
    If you can get it to focus where you want (much better once you get the hang of it) an awesome camera..
