There is some good volume at the Island now with some new fish moving in.
On Saturday we looked at them on the machinery getting only one bite. Today, Sunday 6/9, we looked at them on the deck! They ate the sardine until we ran out then they ate up all our squid. Old school rock cod rods with oversized reel handles had no problem getting bit! All said and done Gail Force ended the day with 60 Yellowtail and 1 Halibut for the 19 passenger charter!​

This Wednesday 6/12/19 we have a 5am-5pm Limited Load Open Party trip fishing Catalina Island targeting Yellowtail. Limited to 20 anglers at $110 per person. If you plan on joining us bring 20-30lb gear to flyline sardine, yoyo jigs and some surface irons. Book online at Gailforcesportfishing.com or give us a call at (310) 844-3814.

Shame there's not a slush or some refrigeration of some kind on the boat to keep those quality fish fresher versus sitting in a sack in the Sun all-day. Anyway, yes a nice haul of fish indeed . . especially that brown 2 eyes on one side fish.

When they are coming over the rail quickly there isn’t time to tag them and get them in the kill bag. We have a kill bag on the boat that is used.

That brown one with two eyes on one side is an adult sand dab. Great eating.
