Was invited to a chartered trip onboard The Navegante out of Redondo.
Full day trip departing at 5a.m..
Boat was baited up and I was first inline.
Been a year since the last time out on Big boat.
Cousin Miguel and brother Alex and I grabbed a room with 3 bunks.
Capt Mike gave a run down about the trip.
4 hrs to SBI fish for Yellows. Had a great breakfast egg sandwich and went to bed for a bit.
Woke up and ready to fish. Dropped anchor and started fly lining sardines. Slow at first.
Bonita here SWRF there. Then a good one was hooked by a newbie to yellows. Highstick him Highstick him!!! Crank Crank!! Turn the handle!!! Color!! Gaff! Gaff!!

Bam nice grade grade yellow! I got bit on 20 with drag buttoned down and got Smoked!!
Ran right for the ridge and bust me off. Happened to a few others. Grabbed my 25 lb stick
and got my ass handed to me again! Shit!
My buddy had told me to bring 40lb. This happened to a lot of the hook ups.
Newbie got 3 I think. Shreck got the piggy of the day.Heard it weighed 36lb. It was a nice fish.
Capt Mike said ,Wind them up. We're going fish for SWRF. I got a few and Lost some Heavy Iron jigs stuck as we drifted.
Did a few drifts and Called it a day as it was 4hrs back and they were going back out on a 1.5 day trip. Capt Mike, Omar, Rafael, Marcus and crew were great on this boat.
Group of regulars on these trips have fished together for 30 years.
Great stories and bullshitting all day. Even before boarding the boat.
Cocktails made and all sorts of goodies .
The bacon cheeseburger Omar made was the best I ever had. Ever!

Fun day.

Nice! Been eyeing the old Indian for a while and they have mostly charters booked. Would like to go out on it someday. The boat has good ju ju.

also, I thought rockfishing was a bit difficult near SBI with all the closure. Looks like a nice mix of good eats right there.

He made me a badass one on the Pescador. Even threw an egg on it.

Good trip. Gotta muscle up on those homeguard forktails. Mean old yellows.

Capt Mike said they were in the process of getting ready for open party trips.

Wally did the boat travel at a normal speed? Engines seem fine? Last time I rode it, it moved very slow like it was tired.
