I see some boats are offering six day trips in July and August time frame 2023 you think they will be targeting no Guadalupe just curious thinking about booking them maybe
but A 8 give you A Extra Day at the ROCKS.You need to do a minimum of 7 days to optimize you catch opportunities
Guadalupe is closed……Multi-day trips like that are all about the individual boat. The Mexican government requires expensive special permits for Guadalupe Island, and very few boats spend the money. And STILL the government can close the island whenever they want to, regardless of issued permits. You need to decide what your personal goal is. If you want to catch big tuna, then spending four or five days within 200 miles of San Diego will get it done, much more fishing opportunity than spending a couple of days traveling down and back and only there for two days.
52.4# about 20NM south of South Island on a full size orange/black Marauder. It’s one of the fish that I most proud of catching!Back in ‘16 on my 10 day at the end of Sept the first Wahoo was caught just south of the Coronado’s! The only one trolling was Tim Turis and he scored! The RSW wasn’t on at the time so we had it for dinner… thanks Turd!
Someone was just telling me this story as I was standing in a parking lot selling him an Intruder. Said he was on that trip with you. He told me you catch a lot of wahoo and that you would use and appreciate the Hooker Intruders. He had no idea. I about fell over after hearing that...small world stuff52.4# about 20NM south of South Island on a full size orange/black Marauder. It’s one of the fish that I most proud of catching!
When I would do 17 day trips from San Diego to Hurricane Bank we would get about 9 days of fishing time. Rest was travel time...San Diego to Hurricane, Hurricane to Cabo, Cabo back to San Diego. Ride down, fly back...although I always rode the boat up from Cabo with the crew and a couple of other passengers.
I would pass Alijos Rocks after about 42 hours and think I am halfway there!!!!
The 8 day trips I’ve done we’ve almost always fished after 24 hours travel, then daily until we’re home. Sometimes we’ll use the last day as a travel day, which I prefer because that means we stayed longer down south and had to beeline home.I'd rather fish for 5 day's solid than travel for 4.5 days on an 8
Mexican costal yellow tail, rock fish, bluefin tuna. Usually 6 day trips don’t go to the Rocks.I see some boats are offering six day trips in July and August time frame 2023 you think they will be targeting no Guadalupe just curious thinking about booking them maybe
