    Coronado island Reds

    Caballo del mar simply stated limits of reds.. As shown by the neat display.. The first pic was simply assorted rockfish.. It wasnt that pertinent to post "limits of reds, 3 chuckeheads, 6 starrys, 5 boccacio, 7 honeycomb, and 1 striper"

    Red Rooster 4 day 9-9 to 9-14

    I had a buddy who went on a 5 day last week on the Searcher.. He said they could only keep a 1 day limit for all 5 days since they fished US waters.. So that would be 10 yft and 10 bft for 5 days..

    Probably made around 6-7 stops for the day.. Plenty of boils.. They wanted the 25-30 lb fluorocarbon.. Wouldn't touch the 40lb..

    I was on that trip that left Thursday and fished Friday.. We fished the east end of San Clemente.. Saw the Rooster, Searcher, and other boats from the SD and LA fleets.. We only picked up 3 YFT in grey light but good quality (22-25lbs).. Trolled and glassed until 9:30 when the bite turned on...

    WON for the private boaters, and its always been required that sportboats have a permit to fish Guad.

    I believe only private boaters need to check into Ensenada. Open party trips require the boat permit and visas and dont need to check in. Fishing Guadalupe would require an additional permit.
