Hello,

First time hooping and I thought it was a cool experience.

Went hooping on the Gail Force out of LA Harbor Sportfishing on 18th for a 12pm to 12am trip to catalina. Fished the first few hours for a whole bunch of fish we had to through back. Ended up with 1 perch and it was the only fish that was kept, everything else had to go back. Started dropping hoops around 4:30 pm. For the trip we dropped three sets of 10 for the 10 anglers. The crew dropped the hoops and we had to pick them back up. I ended up with 5 legals and two shorts Including a nice 3lber. Food was excellent and great crew, highly recommend.

I don't know why they hoop that deep. The area they hoop don’t require them to go that deep. Manually pulling that deep takes the fun out of it. Really 360 ft.? 80-150 ft usually gets the job done...as a matter of fact twice this weekend.
