    Stoked to catch these on a trip like this. I went out with a light load of 11 passengers plus crew and after 5 or so hours arrived at the zone. We made 1 stop and had nat geo style boils around the boat for 3 hours. Many kite fish handed off from Cap I believe 6 or 7 were on bait and we got 13 total BFT from 50-75lbs. My bigger fish was 60 on scale after few hours bled and gilled smaller was almost same size. I got my 2 fish on bait fishing larger sardines on 1/0 circle hook, 40lb fluoro. Seemed you'd get bit in first 10 seconds or not at all. Everybody on board got to catch a fish, props to crew for that. Great crew and bunch of cool guys on this trip. Go get em - Dylan

    Some of the San Diego boats (6:00am to 6:00pm) are getting more BFT per angler to fish ratio than the 1.5 day boats!! They don't even get the early morning bite or the sundown bite, That's pretty sad!

    It’s actually AWESOME! I have a 1 1/2 day trip on the Pacific Queen in 2 weeks and then jumping on a day boat. I hope they are still around.

    Not really...called lucky. You happen to get on a school that is willing to bite. Could be 30 miles out or 200 miles out.

    Wow! Last time I fished the Grande there must have been 40 plus people on board. I can't even imagine fishing with 11 passengers.

    I guess two more local open party boats got lucky again today, The way I see they were the top 2 boats out of 14, day and a half trips out today.
