Report: 20 anglers, skippie and small bft tunas 12lb ave one 25lber, cortez bank no 40-60lb yft no bigguns seen nor heard. Bitt little at dawn, mainly at dusk. One FF (160g) rest were bait. Bait: chovie sized deans (meh quality) or very few large deans. Tuna bit smalls more anywayz. 15-20lb fluoro #4/6 hooks worked well. Weather was awesome, worst was 10knots. Lotsa area covered and Cold! Worked with Pac Queen & Chief. I think the fat lady sung guyz for bigguns, unless theyre at the 60 or butterfly, they maybe already running for warmer waters. Please take Note below is my thoughts and long [email protected]$$ story. So unless you're bored and absolutely have nothing else to do, dont continue on... Its 1:24am woke up early cause didnt get a single bite yesterday. Fishing was 2nd anywayz to sharing the rail with Moon, Mr. Lee, Bruce and new friends. Of course Capt Adam, Lorn, Matt, Markus(young) and mr. Step up his game(he did) Chef Kyrie! Finally got a chance to jump on the new loan this year (they're alwayz booked) light load post storm. Explatory trip really. Moon's freeday was monday and Lee gets call from Adam with the promises of 40-80lb tuna and possible cows lured us on (damn u adam!). Lol i really didnt care, i had different goals. #1 friends over fishing, #2 see Adam and crew, #3 hook cow and handoff to Moon or Bruce and take video of them suffering & crying (like i was 2 wks ago), #4 field test (again) the rainshadows rctb 70xxx and 70xxxx. Oliver Solis kindly and generously lent me his 2 saltydawg wrapped rail rods (beautiful and strong) then says oh ur seeing Adam? here hand him this rcjb106h 8'10" bad [email protected]$$ jig stick and a long sleve tshirt. What??? am i uber/ups? Nah im Santa's helper and yeah Oliver u'd make a damn good jolly one too! Lol. So i fb live a little of saftey/fishing meeting (crappy metropcs connection) gave adam his early Xmas gifts and he was appreciative. Side note: I love how Mr. Lee is very well known on the New Loan (buncha cows already, one in 15min!) and was trying to introduce me to my good old friends i knew before they were crew on this boat. Hugz and handshakes to the good ol boyz so many good memories, few bad ones over the many years, we'll leave it at that. Fishing? Woke up early had 3 cups of coffee and Kyrie's stepped up monster delicious bkfst burrito. Caught up on our missing 4 years of life since we saw each other on the eclipse.(what fishing) Another side note: Me and the boat dont like each other, Alwayz love the crew over the years but only caught 1 small bft out of a handful of trips and somehow that 1 bft dissapeared during fileting. Lmao! Didnt care but capt Markus gave me a free tshirt and $50 off years ago. Back to fishing: My buddies yelling at me to fish. Well after i order their burritos of course. Soaked small baby deans for nada bite died and moved on. Bruce was shortbit 4x on bigger deans we think small tuna were swipping at them or just nom nom his bait to piss him off. Went back to shooting the shit with friends and crew. We drove for hours upon hourd couple of stops on sonar marks or kelps for nada. Moon slept like a baby for a 4 straight hour nap! He almost missed his 2nd favorite thing to do, eat! Lol. So finally 4pm rolls around and adam circling the bandwagon around the pac queen (hes been stopped on a school for awhile) so another salve of small tunas then bite died and we ran about for another hour in the dark for nada. Time to puttputt home. Me? Had an absolutely awesome time got skunked... Again on this boat! But just seeing Adam was kool, but seeing Kyrie was a great blessing. Besides fishin and sharing stories with the buds, since my mom passed away a month & half ago. For some reason ive really connected with her more as i pray on God's peaceful ocean, especially on sporties. Had a great dream about her Sunday night. Thank you Lord and momma love yas! New Lo-An? Moon mentioned how Matt was constantly wipping and scrubbing deck galley bathrooms. Guyz sometimes we take it for granted but man these guys know how treat their customers. Every tuna even the lone skippie got immediatly spiked left to rest and bleed then gut/gilled before rsw. Besides long range boats i believe new loan was the first to implement that technique on shorter trips esp for bigger bft. Bathrooms are exceptionally clean and smells fresh at all times(matt/markus constantly washes them down). A very pleasant difference to other sporties ive been on. Theres alwayz soap & paper towels in their despensers and the ever inportant tp of course. Coffee ready at all times! Oh and Kyrie's seared and baked tri-tip was the BOMB! Especially after capt markus gave him free reign at sysco to buy whatever he wanted. Meat is grade A over there. Kyrie showed me a recent receipt for an earlier trip that showed $785 bucks worth of baby racks of lamb! Im for sure coming back for the food if chef kyrie is in da house. Bunks are average blankets were warm. Point Loma landing are great people to work with and theres plenty of parking now. All in all an epic trip for me and 2 friends, Bruce equates fishing with catching, he got one baby bft and had a horrible time lol! For whats it worth fishing was just that.. Fishing. I found something else better on this trip. Peace!
