What FishDope.com Subscribers are saying...
My first trip after joining Fishdope and I wouldn't have been fishing that far around Catalina Island if I hadn't seen the reports. Immediate payoff. 30lb White Sea Bass, hard to beat that. I'm just here in socal temporarily so I'm taking all the help I can get. Fish Dope works. Thanks for making it available.
After owning a small skiff for several years, I made the plunge and bought a real offshore boat. I happened to go by the FishDope booth at the Fred hall show the next year, and was curious. I spent some time there asking questions, and although I had used information from several free internet sites, I immediately recognized the advantages that FishDope had to offer. The number of features incorporated into FishDope is just amazing! My favorite feature is the route planning...mostly because it gives my wife and kids some peace of mind to know where I will be going..not to mention the valuable information the coast guard could use to find me, should they need to. The fishing reports are always a fun diversion from work, when I cannot get out on the water. I have to give credit to FishDope for a lot of the fish I caught this year, and plan to purchase another membership at the Fred Hall show this year. Keep up the good work, FishDope!
Fishdope is simply the bomb. I have been fishing the coastal waters of Southern California and northern Baja for many years. I know all about the "free" internet sites, but never had much luck using just the SSTs..and it seemed I was always a day late for the what the fishing reports offered. Surfing 4 or 5 different websites to put the weather and fishing information together is kind of a pain. Now that I have ALL of the fish catching information on ONE SITE, it is much easier for me to put it all together and find the fish! When the chlorophyll concentrations coincide with the temp breaks, it's a straight shot to GAME ON! I burn less fuel when I know where the fish are, and I have a lot more confidence in my ability to put fish in the boat. Add the tides, moon phase, bouy data, and what you have a great all around "friend" to help you catch fish..and catching fish is why I go fishing! I use fishdope for every trip I make offshore.
Ran solo last night me and my dog Sierra, in search of some giant Squid. Trip out was nice and smooth at sun set .
Started a the nine and worked a area for nothing. Started working my way north and found some boats workin For the squids as well.
Set up my drift and drop! 20min later frist nice Squid on deck. Instant re drop!! 20 min later the second one hit the deck!! These things are a trip,changing color, inking, laching on to things! My dog was freaking!!

Was one of the nicest nights out their so clam like being in a pool with some crazy Squids swimming around!!!
