    Another stellar 2 day trip aboard the PV. This is a great boat with an amazing crew. Captain Rick, Julio, Koz, Cody and Chef Jeff always put on a GREAT trip!!! It was a private charter with 18 Anglers from Las Vegas!!! Most of you know the drill......Hit the Bait Receiver, while a trip plan meeting in the galley. We pretty much fished the entire trip off Ensenada. We had perfect warm sunny weather with a slight offshore breeze each afternoon. Enough of that....back to the fishing. We arrived in the zone around 4:30 am. I started bait fishing right away for nothing. Then we started trolling around 5:30. I landed a Dorado about 15 minutes into trolling. We trolled with plunker bait fishing at each stop for about the first 4 hours, then it shut down for a awhile. Around 4 pm it really turned on with the feathers getting hit pretty hard with a mix of Skipjack & YFT. had a couple really good stops. I started to use a 3.5 oz green mack Megabait. It really helped getting pasted the Skipjack. I will say there were some pretty large skipjacks being caught. Upwards of 18 lbs
    Day 2 started out with more of the same action. Troll feathers, get a biter or 2 and bait fish or drop a jig. The small to medium bait worked best and the smaller Megabait or Coltsniper. I mainly fished with 25lb or 30 test flouro topshot. There were some larger model YFT if you could get your jig past the Skipjack. Total for the trip 180 Skipjack, 132 YFT & 7 Dorado. This is by far my favorite trip of the year, Great Crew, Great friends, Great time!!!

    Thanks for the report... I always had a great time on that boat. I don't mind catching a few white fish and sheephead after loading up on YT and dodos.
