Meet a couple buddies at Sunset Aquatic Marina at 11:00 PM Tuesday night (5/2/2017) and loaded up the Reel Finn (boat name) to make the crossing to Catalina. We picked up a decent swing of Dean's from the Pedro bait dock and made the very SMOOTH crossing in the dark at 25-27 knots. Pedro had no squid available. We made it to the island and hopped on channel 11 to make the call for Greg Obymako on the Pacific Carnage for a solid swing of squid at 2:00 AM. Our plan was to anchor up somewhere at the V's and target WSB in the grey light. We set up just on top of the water color change in about 7 fathoms of water. The temp was 63.4* Somewhere around 4:45 AM one of our line takes off and the fight was on. We hooked and landed a 48" WSB in the dark. Then around 6:15 AM another rip and about 10 minutes later we have our second 44" WSB on the deck. Then around 7:10 AM another line gets ripped. Unfortunately that one was lost. Snapped 40 lb Izor XXX like nada. We sat on that spot until 8:45 AM and called it good. Pulled the anchor and headed towards Farnsworth to find a few of the elusive larger grade Yellows. No birds working at all. Few schools of dolphin but that was all. Called that good and moved back in tight to the island and fished Calico in the kelp. We pulled on a ton of short Calico and cuda with the JRI 7 surface iron. Got a few larger grumpy Calico's in the 5-7 lb range (all safely released). Not a single Yellowtail to be found. The weather was unbelievable and the ride home was perfect. All in all, a great day on the water with a few good friends.
