Welcome to the Links Page

These web links not only entertain but are the tools for accumulating current information which is the key to locating record sized fish.

Do your homework and your time in the water will be much more productive and rewarding. Record fish are usually caught before you go fishing or hunting with proper planning and preparation. Unfortunately most trophy fish are lost while fishing or hunting for reasons that are easily avoidable with adequate preparation.

Remember the person one who pays the highest price in life usually gets the goods. This rule is not only true in life but when trying to catch trophy record fish. These extra large fish don’t get big because they are stupid and make fatal mistakes. They are seasoned veterans of life and survival, their large size proves it. They have survived in an environment which is much more difficult than negotiating traffic on the freeway or dealing with less than daily life threatening rigors at work or at home.


History link give an interesting historical perspective about underwater hunting and diving.

Study the Marine Weather links, they will help you develop important insight into developing conditions to better plan feature fishing and hunting trips.

Adventure Brad likely goes to Cortez Bank and San Nicholas Island more times every year than anyone. He is one of the finest seaman I know and a true adventurer. This site demonstrates with action a man who is truly a man of the sea. I have learned a great deal from him and he is a great friend.

Buoy Data Critical local buoy data.

Sites I Use Most I use these links in this order to monitor the local marine weather and make decisions about when and where to go fishing and/or hunting. I use these information links to develop a current and future trend picture of the local and offshore marine conditions.
The name of the game is being in the right place at the right time and these web links provide the tools to make the correct decisions and put you in the right place more often.
