You should've come yesterday to fish, yep, it's what they say when fishing is slow :'( :'( .............good news is that I was fishing.. yesterday ;D I got a call on Saturday noon from a friend with a big modified panga with charter services, amigo Alex, boat is ready, gas tank is full, bring some drinks and tacos and lets go fishing tomorrow, dannnng!! is one of those moments when its hard to decide between spending the whole sunday watching nexflix and helping the wife with house chores or go fishing until the sun goes down, after .003 miliseconds of deciding I accepted the offer from my friend. since I went fishing last week this time I was more into having a relaxing day, so I took plenty of pictures to document the fishing trip, I will post some interesting pictures and talk a bit about them. this time fishing day started early, 4am we were driving to the midriff islands (gonzaga bay) but our destiny wasnt the islands like normally, but fishing on the last point of the bay, its called "punta final" (final point). we were ready to launch at 6am this time I was going old school with a 113hw with tom's sideplates, tib frame and my good ol'Baja Special, my casting combo was my rebuilded musky rod with a saltist 20H drag star. Found the little brother of the 113h, an accurate valiant 400II, so funny to see them wearing the same color scheme this time we just saw the Islands passing by, we didnt stop to try them out, check the water.. danm, no many days like this, it was like a big lake. we arrived to punta final and started trolling deep diver lures but fishing was slow, I mean really slow, after half day/6hrs fishing we just have like 4 medium sized fish, we tried trolling, casting irons, jigs, bait and nada, there were plenty of sardines everywhere but no predators, they must have been full by the time we arrived there. so, we opted to stop for a moment and prepare a fresh sashimi with a YT from earlier only two options with hot salsa or nothing, both ways was delicious !! still salivating. it was until 2pm that fishing stoped and "catching" started with a nice Yellowtail from my friend. then I got a nice Cabrilla grouper then big mama Sierra came to town, it looked like a small wahoo, maybe the biggest sierra I've saw so far, those next guys are tall, 6.10ft average then another guy caught another Big Sierra then I felt a strong pull, like if I was snagged while trolling, captain told me it was not a snag/rock, we were at 60ft deep and I was trolling a 25Ft lure, so it must've been a fish, so, I put the rod on the figthing belt and game on! I was using the Baja Special (I cant help it, love the simplicity and want to keep testing Tom's antireverse assembly upgrade till it breaks) well, the fight was really good, I had to set the drag higher than the 22# to stop it, I didnt measured with a scale but for the turns I did on the star I calculate 25-27# drag to stop this fish. a big gun angry Cabrilla Sardinera (it deserve the full name) of 19# and 30", I was estimated a lot more since it felt really heavy while it was alive in my hands) we caugh some more fishes but the sun started to went down and then we called it a day cuz the natural ramp where we launched the boat has no electric power for lights seems like a I a problem with Ice cooler being to small we didnt reached our fish limits per person but this is never the goal but to have a great time on the water, bringing some fish to the table is jus the cherry on the cake. but who will say NO to one of the best meat on the water? (by the way, I also need a bigger filleting cutting board too) want some? get yours !!
