Its Hoopnetting time and I’M BACK!!!

Hi Guys,

This has been the busiest season of my career and I have been away for awhile. First thing I need to do is thank all of you for helping make that possible.

Since I am posting in this forum, I want to make sure that I give an report.

Catalina – If you don’t know or haven’t heard by now, Catalina has been WIDE OPEN for bonito. All over the front, just about anywhere you go (south of Arrow Point) there are all the bonies you want. They are not whoppers, but they are bonito. I recommend taking anchovies, chum a little and flyline a bait.

Lobster – Most of the way through the first week of the season, things are starting off pretty good. I have been out three different times (Cat Is., DP, San O.) so far, and have managed bugs on each trip. If you would like to go hooping with me this season, there are a couple of ways to get that done. The first is to hire me to take you out on your boat (south bay to the mex border, including the islands) – call me for current rates. The other way that we can hoop together this season, is for you to book or charter trip out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing, on the Helena. Call 949-496-5794 for details on those trips.
Come hear me speak this week. On Friday, Oct. 4th (2:00PM to 4:00PM), I will be speaking at the new West Marine in Newport. I’ll be talking about hooping and fishing. There are a lot of great events and speakers happening during this week’s Grand Opening and I hope you’ll come down and hear me speak – In fact, the first FIVE people who come up and say “HI” will get a FREE San Clemente Island hot spot DVD.

Lastly, I want to fire up the “TIP OF THE WEEK” again. I have been so busy that I let this slip. I have gotten many requests to open this back up in the forum…. so here we go. By the way, if there is something you would like me to address or discuss in the TIP OF THE WEEK, please send me a PM and I will do my best to work it in (even if it takes a while).

Once again, thank you all and I hope to see you all soon.

Capt. Dave Hansen
