Left Cabrillo marina on Sunday with one mission to put my nephew on a yellowtail. So proud of the kid for being 2 years sober.

Picked up excellent bait at SP bait and cleared the harbor about 6am. Being that I hate to fish holiday weekends I decided to fish the backside hoping to avoid the crowds. And that we did. Pointed the bow to the east end and headed to the 3V’s. Seals were ruthless. Tough pickings back there with the dogs.

But whatcha know, all of a sudden, my nephews reel goes screaming and now the fish is headed to the shallows in kelp. Quickly I bump the boat forward slowly to drag the fish in deeper water and instruct my nephew to keep pressure on the fish.

He fights it like a champ to the boat and BAM! I sink a gaff in it. Congrats Christian!

Left the island at 2 pm and ride back was nasty AF.

BTW... got boarded by the coast guard that I think took about an hour of our time. Making it 3pm when we left. Cited for Expired flares. Go figure. Said it was a fix it.

    Thanks for reminding me of flares.
