    8/27

    Fished the Western Pride out of Newport on Tuesday as they were planning on running a 3/4. With Mike at the wheel and Robby and Bobby working, we sat in for the 3 hr drive to Cat. Weather was beautiful all day, with the wind only slightly picking up towards 4pm. Bass fishing on tuesday seemed to slow down from the day before, so we kept hopping around hoping for some better quality. Lots of tiny bass, cuda, bonito.

    Towards the end of the day around 3pm we finally hook into a yellow. After the first fish was hooked we started to see life around the boat--boiling yellows, cuda, and bass. We end up going 4-4. I got one on a JRI 3 mint and gold and another one on 20lb bait setup.

    Tips:
    -Light line (20lb-30lb)
    -Good bait
    -Rail time
    -1/0 mustad hook

    8/29

    Fished the Pride again, this time on their standard 1/2 day schedule. I opted for the PM trip and we had a phenomenal day fishing. Super local spots, that makes the drive time super short. When I fished these types of trips, I feel like I've fished a 3/4 because of all the extra fishing time. The grouper and reds were biting in full force, yielding quick limits in only couple drifts. Exotics on this trip was a Halibut (10lbish) and a Lingcod! Honestly, can't beat these short trips with a chance at catching these cool fish.

    Tips:
    -heavy, short mono leaders (30-50lb) to reduce line twist
    -12" dropper loops, as far apart
    -zoom super salty flukes
    -300+ yards of spectra
    -3/0-5/0 long shank circle hooks

    Did you bring your own kill bag out there or do they have their own for everyone to use? Little confused seeing a reliable fishing product kill bag on a sportie

    No I did not bring it myself. I’m not 100% sure about the other boats at Davey’s Locker, but I know for sure that the Western Pride provides a kill bag on 3/4 trips to keep the fish fresh. Made a huge difference on that hot day and was definitely a plus!
