    Thanks, it is a different diving world today with all the technology giving out instant reports...just trying to give free divers the same info as the hook and line guys who communicate far better than divers...

    Just wanted to thank you for your informative reply to my specific question about depth finders. Also all the wisdom that you give in all your answers. I too am a relative older fellow, age 69, who loves to dive and hunt fishes. I only get out a few times a year. My adventures are now going to Baja and Catalina a few times a year. When I head to Catalina next, Mid July, I will be asking for advice on the likely haunts for Yellowtail. I do know about Farnsworth Bank and the Quarry. I appreciate all your sharing of knowledge. And you putting the idiots in their place. Thru Spearboard i have been to connect with a couple of great dive buddies.

    Thanks for all your knowledge.

    Hey Bob! You look like a guy that knows the Catalina area based on some of your thread replies. My wife and I are staying at a friends Condo in Hamilton Cove April 22-26. I'd like to get out one of the days to dive and fish, specifically for some larger species. I have all the right spear gear and am a fairly accomplished freediver.

    Can you connect me with someone that could point me in the right direction? Adam Olsen offered to take me on his boat for $100/hr and said I could bring buddies (making the cost more like $30/hr/person). I'm looking for worthy yak spots, charters, locals, etc. Anything that could help put me on some decent fish (YT, White Seabass, Calico, etc). Currently not wanting to go after halibut/sheepshead as I can get those here in Monterey where I live (Pacific Grove).

    Thank you for your help!

    Thanks Bob! I'm still plugging away at my boat, trying to get it ready for the summer. Unfortunately, I'm spending all my time on it when there are days without rain. Might just have to play hookie on it and go chase em!

    Thanks Bob! I saw the fleet headed to the west end yesterday. Hopefully I can get out there soon!

    Hi Bob, my name's Ross nice to meet you sir. Reading your reports is pretty amazing, would be great to pay you some for the opportunity to tag along on your next adventure and hopefully satisfy a dream of spearing a monster tuna. Let me know what you think and respect!
