    <o:smarttagtype namespaceuri="urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" http:="" www.bloodydecks.com="" forums="" images="" smilies="" redface.gif="" border="0" alt="" title="Embarrassment" smilieid="3" class="inlineimg"></o:smarttagtype>So me and some buddies charted the new guy on the block the SPECTRA out of pierpoint for a overnight trip and ended up with a killer day of fishing. If you guys haven’t heard of the spectra you should check out there web site Spectra Sportfishing :: Southern California Charter Fishing. Billy, the owner is a great guy. We ended up going one light because PSYCHO CLOWN got stuck at work…. Sorry rock you missed out. This boat was so sick fishing 5 guys. So much space and not a single tangle all day. When we got there Billy already had a case of cold beer waiting for us, and hooked us up with a free breakfast the next morning, thanks Billy . So we left the dock around 9pm and hit the bait barge, loaded up with some nice ‘dines and were on our way. The original plan was to go chase the sea bass at Catalina but when we saw the parking lot for the tournament we opted to head to <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">San Clemente</st1:place></st1:city> instead. Best move of the trip. Got to the island about 4am and the crew was able to make some squirts. After that every one got up and we were on the hunt for the some exotics. No love on the sea bass by sun up so we decided to go get something else. Water was still cold on the backside and the sun was still hiding out so we opted to fill the bags with rock fish. We had a wide open cod bite to fill the cooler in no more than an hour. By now the sun had showed up so we stopped by the captain’s secret halibut spot and made a few drifts, but they weren’t home so we took off to go chase calicos for the rest of the day. We found some warmer water and game on. We had a steady pick of calicos all day. We had calicos boiling all around the boat it was a killer site to see. They were mainly chewing on the squid with a ¼ to 1/2 oz. sliding sinker and every once in a while a ‘dine on the surface. I tried fishing the plastics and slugs but they wanted nothing to do with it so they got put back into the rack. We also had yellows breezing through just out of range of a jig throw and bonita swimming around the boat. The yellows were definitely there in numbers. It looks like the island is bound to go off any time now. We ended up with bags of fish to take home and were headed back to the dock around 5pm. Id just like to say that this boat is off the hook. The crew worked there ass off all day to put us on fish and I will definitely be fishing with them again frequently. They move down to Point Loma, <st1:city w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">San Diego</st1:place></st1:city> in July and I am already planning an albie trip with Billy. The spectra was originally designed as a commercial albie boat and I cant wait to fish it offshore. Thanks again Billy and ill be seeing you soon.

    Hey Matt, great variety of fish. I think the "Spectra" is going to be a super 6 pac jig boat. The boat has a tremendous bait capacity, drystack & single engine. All make for an outstanding tuna boat. Won't find a 6 pac boat with these advantages. Seaya!

    Matt,

    I such a great time with your group. All you guys are awesome.

    Fishing for exotics was a bit tough but we still managed to have a great time and bag limits for all.

    Weather was amazing and water temps were creeping up to 64 degrees. We saw the yellows on the front side west. Big boils around the boat, they just didnt seem interested in anything we had to throw, and believe me, Matt and his group threw the tackle box at them.

    So seeing what we did, I felt that a few more days of this awesome weather would really make that island snap, then I get calls on Monday that we have weather coming this weekend....here we go again....gale force winds on the weekend and all weekend trips have been canceled.

    Ill keep you guys posted

    That was a great trip!!! A top notch operation for sure. We were in luxury on that boat and the crew treated us like kings!! Not a single thing to complain about on this trip, it was a great trip all around. Billy and the crew did a outstanding job at everything they did. From finding us fish to catch to making sure we had everything we needed to make ourselves as comfortable as if we were chillin' at home on the couch. We will be on this boat again 100% for sure!!
