    Island conditions?

    Eric, saw three marlin hook ups today behind Santa Cruz on the troll. About 6 boats total out there. Half of them were live lining, the other on the troll. Water temp was 73.5. My bait tank pump died. I couldn't get bit on the troll except for one bullet tuna. The hook ups I saw all...

    CI . Slow .

    Hooks catches their own bait, the owner takes his boat out called Magic. There is no love lost between Ciscos and Hooks, that's for sure. I like Hooks better because the owner is friendly and hooked me up a time or two.

    Santa Cruz Marlin

    5 hook ups in one day on the backside of Santa Cruz is most likely not gonna happen for me again. Haven't read reports about action that fast and furious like Sunday. Guys have been picking up fish lately but everywhere you looked on Sunday fish were tail walking.

    You're right. It seems unreal to be honest, may have been a once in a lifetime sort of thing.

    Santa Cruz Marlin

    Bob, we got Spanish Macks at Gina and got bit on one of those. The green back macks were out on the fishing grounds in big schools, breaking the surface and easily marked.

    Santa Cruz Marlin

    Probably going to be a lot of posts about the amazing blitz of marlin today. It is unbelievable to me the amount of quality fish we are seeing in our waters. It was hook-ups galore today all around us. We live lined mackerels and hooked up 5 times today, we were just outside of Yellow Banks...

    Personal Best Yellowtail

    On Saturday we got a scoop of anchovies and sardines and headed out to the islands. Stopped at the break wall and tried to make some mackerel, got one and added it to the bank tank. Found the spot after a bumpy ride out. My buddy tossed the mackerel out after nothing bit on the anchovies or...

    Yellowtail Santa Cruz

    Alex, that is the only outboard model Bertram ever made. I am told they were a special order boat during 1982-1984 and somewhere between 5-30 were produced. I have attached a link on a review of it if you're interested.

    Yellowtail Santa Cruz

    Cleared the harbor at 5:30am last Saturday and headed to Santa Cruz. There were a few party boats and other guys fishing the area when we arrived. By 9am basically everyone cleared out. The tide changed and this happened.
