This ^^^We have hammered it there in September before. It's either wide open or ice cold...........
This ^^^ Although I prefer the 4/0's. Fish that shit on 100# spectra with a short top shot of Izor 80#, button down the drag on a Baja Special, and hold on to your ass or you're going for a swim.Bring all the scrambled egg salas 6x you can find, you'll need it. We went thru I think 30 of them on the last trip.
Hi Richard! Nice to "meet" someone before the trip leaves... You have picked a great boat. Perhaps the best kept secret in the fleet. I haven't fished with this group, but from what the chartermaster told me the core group of guys has been together for a while now. I was on a 5-day last August http://www.bdoutdoors.com/forums/san-diego-long-range-fishing/449198-red-rooster-iii-5-day-8-11-8-16-tons-pics.html and we caught bluefin, yellowfin, dorado offshore plus lots of yellows at the coastal islands. The 6 day trip will most likely fish the same areas as a 5 (with the luxury of an extra day thrown in for good measure) OR in a rare case there is always the option to make a B-Line for the rocks and fish 2 days. Looking forward to September and fishing with you....I'll stay in touch. -Chris DunnHey Chris Sept 14 SOA. Cool alredy met a buddy. Lets stay in touch I will need help on what to bring tackle wise. My name is Richard Jones I live in Poway north of San Diego.
Yup! Break out the winch and broomstick with the heaviest line you can get away with on the dropper loop. It's a rather "neutering" experiece to get broken off properly on 60# gear. Biggest yellow I've gotten was 48lbs, and I know in my heart I've busted off much much MUCH bigger ones on the snotty side of the Lupe.if the captain decides to do so and fish the weather side of the island.... Hold on the yellows there are beasts and will rock you into the pinnacles. Lost oh 5 irons within an hour
