My youngest turned 13 yesterday and he wanted to go out fishing with friends so headed out about an hour ago from DP and came up on something feeding only a few miles from shore... The boys thought it was large yellowtail and a couple of large dark orange fish were mixed in so not sure what those were but it was a feeding frenzy for 30 min.. We threw irons and fly lined dines and they wouldn't play.. So thought we would throw out the trollers and 10 min. ago we caught and released a nice one.... I'll keep you posted if we see anything worth heading out for but there are birds diving everywhere! not sure if you can see anything in a few of these pics but I'll post them anyway...

The boys were back at it again today.. The plan was to hunt for tuna but until I get my bait tank dialed in I'm out...

We did go to Catalina Island for a day of catch and release.. A bit of rain but they were troopers.. Stopped on a patti on the way out and could see it was holding some fat yellowtail but again,no live bait so we tried alternatives but no go..

A fun session of catch and release and the kids were happy.

Glass all the way back :)

Love that Island!!

There is just something insanely cool about seeing boys this age fishing together as close friends all the time...... they are all very lucky!!

These fishing trips you're doing with them will be etched in their brains forever, and they will without any doubt remember and talk about them a long long time from now..... guaranteed!!

I don't know how some of you who take these on the water fishing pics make some of the pictures pop with such clarity, but damn are some of those shots super bitchen!!

Am I seeing things, or is that one pic of the Para Sail made to look like a flying Halloween Pumpkin LOL....... pretty cool.


Chalk up another kick ass momery < (that means memory with mom) ;)

BTW...... Just what is "Love bait", and where can a guy find some? I might just have to purchase me some and give it a try sometime. LOL

Maybe that's what's wrong... I've been trying to keep love bait alive.. Need to go back to just trying live bait.

Also, I found a key on the boat launch docks last night if anyone is missing it? I left it at the Embarcadaro office.

Beautiful write up and awesome pics Debi, looks like you have the boat dialed in for sure. The bait thing will come. Just a matter of time for a woman with your wit!

Those boys have it made!

Thanks for sharing Awesome Mom!!
