Whoowee! That was a fun trip!! What a difference a good crew and some kick ass passengers make on a 2 day charter. Bloodydecks teamed up with the Dominator, Hoven Vision, Mustad Hooks, The Mad Hueys, and De-Fishing Soap put on a very successful trip. Our Ultra limited load 2 day started out at the fishing grounds between San Clemente and Catalina. We were looking for some of that larger Bluefin we heard came back into the area as well as the huge schools of YFT that the sportys' were massacring the couple days before. Thursday we found a lot of birds and boiling fish. It was scratchy fishing though. We had 1-2 Yellowfin for almost every stop until around the later afternoon. Our captain did his part and would put us right on a the boiling schools but nothing seemed to be biting. Our bait was part to blame as we had mostly mackerel and very little sardine and the Flatfalls and jigs were not working. Friday was a whole other story. We drove down south overnight to the grounds just outside the Coronados 12 mile zone. We heard that boats were getting hit on the troll, which was only true for us a couple of times.(Skip Jack Mostly) Paddy's were abundant and loaded with fish. We caught our share of dorado with some smaller grade yellowfin and some skipjack mixed in. The fish didn't seem to mind if we were using sardine or mackerel, it was steady and fun. Just wanted to say thank you to our sponsors for all the swag they provided for this trip. We had a bunch of sunglasses, hats, shirts, bags, pliers, fillet knives, soap, to raffle. I think everyone went away with a few items. And this trip report wouldn't be complete without thanking the crew of the Dominator. They were awesome. These guys run a good operation. What stood out was the cleanliness of the vessel inside and out. The galley and bunk room were well kept and the crew were always ready to lend a hand. And I can't forget to mention the FOOD! Machaca burritos, fajitas, Pork loin with some amazing garlic sauce, and the best double cheese burger I've had on a boat. BOOK YOUR NEXT TRIP!
