    SHORT VERSION:
    classic, epic SQ mixed bag fishing including 3 seperate "inshore slams" on monday. windy tuesday, but it didnt matter because the fishing was soo good on monday. nothing but stoke on this trip. good laughs, good times and amazing fishing!

    LONG VERSION:
    we left san diego early sunday in route for SQ. after a smooth 4 hour ride down (incl. a manditory stop @ taco surf for cinco carne tacos con todo) we arrived @ the old mill just in time to checkout how everyone fared on sunday. things looked up so we headed back to our room, threw some steaks on the grill, cracked open the bottle of el agave and few beers and got our gear ready.

    got up monday morning and met kelly (km sportfishing), loaded up the sled and headed out to make bait. filled the tank in 10 minutes and we were off...

    our plan, as always in SQ, was the mixed bag... so first stop was the YT. within 4 minutes of stopping, we had one dead blonde on the boat courtousy of my buddy levi. just after that jamie wacks one and a few minutes later i get ripped and end up killin another. next up is levi again, who nails a toad. after that we had about 4 boats on the high spot and the bite fizzled.

    our next stop... up on the beach for wsb. so we pull up to the beach it was full speed log barracuda and really tough to get under them, but every so often when we did we were rewarded. we ended running and gunning the birds and bait balls @ the beach for 5 white seabass + countless log barries and bruiser bonita.

    after that fizzled, we put our heads together and decided to finish our day by going for the inshore slam (YT + WSB + HALIBUT), so we hit a REALLY fishy sandbar inside SQ bay and pulled 3 drifts for 3 legal flatties, biggest going about 17lbs.

    the only downside of the day was that jamie used our last piece of bait to kill his halibut, so we had to stop fishing right in the middle of a hot flattie bite... the upside was that levi, jamie and myself all pulled a triple inshore slam... something none of us had ever done.

    needless to say, once back to the launch ramp it was all celebration, fish stories from the day and good times! afterwards we took some wsb and halibut over to don eddie's for the "cooked 3-way" dinner and a few michelada's, then hit the sack to do it all over again on tuesday.

    woke up tuesday morning to 15 kt. northwesterlies, but decided to make the run anyway. did the bape thing and made our way out of the bay into some serious slop. tried the beach first for the wsb, but the water temp had dropped dramatically, so we tried a couple other spots but couldnt really get anything to go. the increase in the wind and swell really turned the water, so we decided to tuck tail and head home, still happy (and hungover) from the previous days efforts and rewards.

    final tally...
    =========================
    5 white seabass (to 20 lbs)
    4 yellowtail (to 33 lbs)
    3 halibut (to 17 lbs)
    3 calico bass (released)
    2 sandbass (released)
    5 copper rockfish
    1 lingcod
    100+ barracuda (released)
    40+ bruiser bonita (all but 2 released)
    ==========================

    hats off to kelly from k&m sportfishers. he is hands down the BEST captain down in SQ. he knew what we wanted to do and put us in the areas to do it... the rest was up to us. it was straight up captain/angler team work at its finest! if youre ever looking to fish SQ, make sure you fish with him...
