Dan talking about fishing with a B 52 Bucktail for calico bass

The next to the last day of the year

Today is just about cleaning things up, I have to take our youth foundation truck for a smog check and then it's just cleaning up in here. Old videos have to come off the hard drives and my office is a mess, I guess I'll try to battle that too. I was hoping to go out and fish the break wall over the weekend, but the weather doesn't look all that great, I guess I'll spend the weekend cleaning up my tackle box, storing old gear and getting everything ready for next season, I've learned over the years that trying to get my tackle ready the night before a trip is way to late for me, I also like to have those little Plano boxes filled ready to go, I just grab what I need to put them all in a large soft bag. I still enjoy playing with all that fishing gear. Have a great New Year's everyone!

New California Fishing License

If you have tried to buy your 2011 CA fishing license you already know this, but it was a surprise for me when I tried to buy fishing licenses as gifts for Christmas. You no longer can just buy one for other people without having their ID in your hand. You must have a drivers license or passport or some other type of ID with you when you buy your fishing license now. I don't know which ID's they will honor other than the two I listed here. The stores now have a special printer that they use to print out our license from Sacramento with. Also don't go the day that you plan to go fishing or even the day before. One store that I visited was having trouble connecting to the server so they could even order a license for a customer. I just thought I'd give you a heads up about this.

Helping to Bring Christmas to 4000 people, It was a Great Day

Yesterday I helped feed over 4000 people in Montebello, we handed out over 3000 toys to kids and over 800 families took home a large box of food for Christmas dinner.
I was chairman for this event, but by no means did I do this alone, this was a team effort, hundreds of people worked together so that these 4000 people would have a Christmas. I know to these 4000 people it was a great day, for me it was even better, I know today was about giving service, but I really feel I got back more than I gave today. Today was a great day. I hope you all have a very merry Christmas!

Christmas gift idea

With Christmas so close and us all so strapped for cash I wanted to share a gift idea that I do everyone year for several people close to me, I buy them next years fishing license. Also if they like to lobster fish, you might want to also get the a new lobster card. the lobster card is a nice cheap gift, a full fishing license will cost you a lot more.

I wish the weather was better, I'd like to be out there lobster fishing right now too, but it sounds like this rain i going to be around for a while.

take care and have a great Christmas!

Last fishing trip for 2010 report

Last Saturday we had our last fishing trip of the year, it was a rock fishing trip aboard the Indian out of H & M Landing in San Diego. we had OK fishing, nothing really large but most people did get limits. even though we had 8-10 foot seas and cold weather, it was still nice to be back out at sea.

getting ready for tomorrow trip

I plan to do all my fishing tomorrow with either B 52 bucktails or Magic Metal Jigs for the larger rock fish and ling cods. I plan to target lings and the way I like to fish is with a 10oz MM2. What I do is let the jig fall all the way to the ocean floor and then crank it up and ten turn very fast, so it looks like it's trying to escape,if the is a ling anywhere close by it'll chase the jig and eat it, if i don't get bit I slowly let me jig fall back to the bottom and do it again. Try this nest time you go bottom fishing.

This weekends fishing charter

this week we have our last fishing charter of the year. It's a rock fishing trip aboard the Indian out of San Diego. It's funny how we start and end each year with a rock fishing trip. People are asking me what special gear they need to bring along with them and I always tell them to make sure they have a selection of B 52 bucktail jigs, you want the 1/2 OZ ones for your gangon and the 6OZ bucktails for fishing for lings and red on the bottom, I would never go rock fishing without them.

Dan's Fish Batter Mix now in Turner's

You can buy Dan Hernandez Baja Style Fish batter Mix at your local Turner's Outdoorsman store. Help support our youth foundation and pick up our fish batter mix today.

Surf Fishing

I've been getting reports that the local surf fishing is still very good. remember you want to fish on incoming tides and you want to use a short leader, try to keep you bait right on the bottom, the fish will be swimming with their head pointed down looking for food, so make sure you bait is down where they can find it. go out there and have some fun.
