Returned Monday from an 8 day on the Intrepid. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you see it, we didn't have Guadalupe permits so we headed south. Never got to the rocks due to poor reports from other boats. First day fishing was paddy hopping offshore north of the Ridge for only a handful of Dorado - long day. Second day we stopped on at the 13 for a wide open salmon grouper bite - not what we're looking for. Moved to the 23 and trolled for wahoo for nothing. Moved to the Thetis in the afternoon and finally got into a very good bite on good grade yellow tail in the 20--30 lb range, mostly on fly line or dropper, with some smallish grouper and peanut tuna mixed in. Stayed at the Thetis the next day for a scratchier bite on smaller grade yellow/grouper/tuna. The next day went back to the 23 for Wahoo and had our best day. The boat hooked about 20 wahoo, mostly on the troll with the orange Nomad doing much of the damage, and landed about 15 . I was fortunate to land 2, including the jackpot 73 pounder on bait, wire leader. We then worked north with a couple stops for peanut yellows and rockfish. The Wahoo made the trip. First trip on the Intrepid (usually on the RP) and really liked the newer boat with ice cold AC, great food and great customer service. Even get ESPN the whole time on your state room TV.
