We boarded The Pacifica and cleared the harbor by like 930ish on Wednesday night. Heard the motors idle down and were dropping flat falls by 1am. It was stop and go flat fall fishing until it got light outside. We managed one hookup on the boat but that hook was pulled so no flat fall fish landed in the morning.

The morning was the most productive for us. We did not anchor up once all day, it was run and gun style fishing, finding schools and trying to get them to cooperate. We had a couple of productive schools early on in the day where we landed 5-10 fish, then it was stop and go after that where we’d get 1-3 fish or no fish on different schools. This would go on until it got dark out, and we did the stop and go thing dropping flat falls until about 11pm. We managed one flat fall fish on this go around at about 35#. All in all it was a good blue fin trip with the boat landing around 45 bluefin for 30 passengers. I was able to get my limits (about a 20# & 30#), my brother in law landed 5, my brother got 1 and my buddy got 1, so we did very well as a group opposed to others.

The captain and crew were top notch and the food was absolutely on point. This boat fished hard all day and they do everything possible to put you on the fish. We literally fished for almost 24 hours straight on this 1.5. All fish were landed via fly lines baits on 25# floro with a #2 hook, and the one flat fall fish. Fish ranged from 18-35ish pounds. Be sure to have that finesse 20-30# setup for these finicky fish. Again nothing but great things to say about this boat, can’t wait to get back on it. Go out there and get em!
