Shortcut on scaling, if you're outdoors, is to hold 'em by the tail and use a high pressure nozzle on garden hose to knock scales off.
Sounds like a great day on the water. Need to fix that camera though, the background is all blurry. :rofl:

Great report. Ditto on the skipjack, been a while since they've been around.
Nice read. I wonder how some of those dumb-chit paddy stompers even find the high spots?
Yikes! Wrong kind of blood on the decks. Thanks for the report though.
Small sandcrabs down there right now. Dropping down in size and using fine wire hooks is a good tip. Nice looking perch.
Sounds like you guys made the best out of a cruddy situation. I see the culprit has come clean...first step on a long road to recovery. ha ha

Awesome report and pix. Condor and crew went full throttle for you guys.
Great trip and outstanding report made better with all the details. Top notch all the way.
Great job. (Even the kid's gaffing. Seen a lot of misses over the years when dodos twist upright just at the last possible second).
Hope the engine problem's something minor, but good day nonetheless.
Looking at photo #1, ever thought of making a website called bloodyshirts.com?

Great report and pix. Pretty impressive fish count for the day. :hali_olutta:

Good job on the yellowtail and dodo!:hali_olutta:
FWIW we saw that larger boat patrolling north and inside of the 371 and decided it would be a good time to head north a bit.

One thing about the Mexican Sea Visa program you can always count on is...
Great advice above. Also, avoid sardine zombie apocalypse, cull the dead and half-dead on a routine basis.

Painful when they get so close then get away. Better luck next time and thanks for the report. :hali_olutta:

Vid really put a smile on my face this morning! Watching that dorky mini-mola was a hoot.
Thanks for all the work in putting that together.
Great report and thanks for the 411.
