What a weekend we had aboard the Charlene. After seemed like an eternity of big fish reports, the boat is finally running. Thanks to a little help from Cogswell Marine and Motorsports, Those guys are 1st class. Mitchell is great source of mechanical information. Left Friday night after grabbing a few scoops of nice sized sardines and headed west to San clemente island. Fishing was unbelievable, in 40+ years I've never seen fish like this. It was definitely a Devine moment in time. Fishing was slow on desperation so we decided to head west up the island. There were fish from the reef all the way to lost, in 280 to 500'. After around 11, it seemed to dry up so we headed back to anchor up just outside desperation proper. 340'. It wasn't long before we had another big bluefin on. After the dust would settle, we would end up with limits for all aboard. Fish were from a respectable 60 to 110, with a standout fish which ed tapped at 160 lbs. Fish were caught on sinker rigged sardines around 100' down and flylined baits as well. Using 40lb florocarbon and 3-0 gamakatsu nautilus circle hooks. Congratulations to Angel on his pb. 160lb bluefin, as well as both father and son Dave Turrell with nice 100lbs fish. Frankie and lori both with respectable 80lb fish.
Thanks Tino Valintine, for all you're help and vast knowledge on killing fish. This was one I will never forget.

    Well you sure did more than kill some crappie as your username implies!

    I must be out of the loop, are the ski's the surname of the group you are fishing with?

    That 'Charlene' sure looks like a big and nice vessel, what are the specs on it?

    Congrats on a great day! Thanks for the report!

    That's odd, everyone hate's the Ski's. Especially if you lost your speargun-ski.
