Default Calling all OC off shore boaters. Fleet group interest.

Alright boys.

Looking to put together a small fishing fleet group together based out of OC.

This includes Huntington, Long Beah, Newport and Dana Point.

Me and some buddies use to have a pretty good fleet of 4 boats small center consoles we use to mob out to spots with. But some of them have put fishing off or sold their boats all together.

The main purpose of going out as a fleet is to get as many boats and anglers out as possible and work together to get every on a fat bite.

The advantages of sticking it out as a fleet is to work like the big cattle boats do. It allows us to spread out and scan for bigger and better bites to call to the rest of the fleet.

Also allows a big aspect of safety. If any of our guys go down or break down. Instead of calling out an expensive sea tow we can work together and bring them back to the harbor. Usually a nice Casanova of beers is bartered for payment.

Most of all, getting s fun cool group of guys n gals out for a good time. Stick together, spread out, hard core fish or just leasure. Share and make new stories and share personal hot spots or gems, maybe even lean more. Power in numbers!

Anyhing open, we can plan trips to go out

Like I said me and my buddies use to do this with buddies back in the day in high school. This worked out really well and the last few seasons some of them had to hang their capt hats.

No major boat requirements, john boats, Center Consoles, Pleasure Cruisers, Luxury boats. Just as long youíre out there to fish. Youíre good.

So this is a sound off for interest in a OC fleet group going. Main targets is off the Ports, Catslina, oil rigs, any where. Depending on how successful this is we could even plan trips below the boarder or up north. Itís what you make it. We donít expect this to blow up out if he gate, but Iím sure over time this could become a solid tight bitched little community.

Any interest? Sound off!

I'm over in AZ but plan on dragging my 25' express cruiser out more often and sharpening up my YT/WSB/Calico skills. Planning a mid july trip Catalina trip with the Fam right now, looking to put the first YT on this boat solo (plenty of experience fishing on sportboats).

Anyway, would be up for joining occasionally if the timing works, and you'll have me along.

I would love to join the group. I have a 42' twin diesel aft cabin trawler at a slip in Long Beach. I don't have much salt water fishing experience yet but am a competent boater.

Awesome! See attached for pic... she's a slow mover (8 knots @ WOT) but has plenty of elbow room for casting. Have live bait tank & fish finder, although the FF is a little glitchy.

I'm interested. I have a 23' walk around boat. I usually launch from Long Beach Queen Mary or Cabrillo. My boat is being repaired, but it should be up in a couple of weeks. Now, what's next?

My boat is being delivered to me from Texas hopefully by end of next week. 2007 Sea Hunt Triton 240 CC. I live in Orange and usually launch out of 2nd st Long Beach or Huntington and sometimes Dana point if I want to fish farther south.

It seems that only you and I are the last ones who are still interested in a convoy. Lol.
