Report:
Found the fish around the high tide, back at Hen Rock area. after sticking it out at Empire for the 8-1030am time slot, decided to recheck Hen/whites area.
great current and great fishing with roughly 100 calicos (all releases some keepers in the mix though) and 6 nice yellows and a rat.
I’m happy to share any info. after we caught our first 2 fish, we called in a couple boats and naturally, more followed. never did anyone not act like human beings. it was an awesome 3 plus hour drift and reset for my boat with my 3 boys and one of their buddies.
I was showing another friend in his boat the island so he got to partake as well.
Live squid from Carnage at avalon (likely again tomorrow), 20-30lb too shots and straight mono setups with 1/4 ounce or half ounce sliders and just lead heads. more current, more weight. less current, less weight.
first the calicos would smash, and every so often the Yellows just couldn’t sit back and watch then eat the candy bait, they would join in.
lost 4.
2 teenager boys for their first yellows.
my first yellows on my new boat.
Older son leaving to Homer for Hakobut charter work this Saturday. we wanted to get the decks bloody with the right kind prior and we got it done!
water 66.5
i don’t care about showing the spot or telling anything to anyone that enables catching more fish. more catching means more good people fishing for our rights to fish!

"Alex - name that cove for $1,000"

Take fresh fish pics pointing offshore - Rule #115
seriously?
who gives a shit.
anyone able to report or wants to report to help out a fellow fisherman, can and should tell as much info as possible. I don’t do this for money, for instagram points or value, nothing, but because I want to help and share the news however I can. I wish I could help more.
if someone can drive to the fish tomorrow morning because of this post, awesome. but we all know fish don’t hardly ever bite in the same place, 2 days in a row... or do they?;)

What a great day, maybe the best day ever because of the memories made. Those boys will not forget the day they went WFO on Calicos and how hard the YTs pull.

Really appreciate the intel on your report. I'm seeing more and more reports where guys are sharing good intel...and I like that we are helping each other out more.

No boat.
Whites cove is where I nabbed a #275 BSB (wasn't targeted) and released very strong and kicking hard. so the Backside produced for you guys? I was headed to the frontside a little passed the (VVV's) for some of those WSB. if anyone wants to team work the island this weekend I will have zero problem calling out what I see. its shitty when you run from hen rock to the v's on pure hope. DM ill give you a little info on how to reach us. ill be out there for the next 2 days fishing hard if anyone else is making the run to SCI
