Met hannapah (Bill) down at Dana Point and launched around 9:00 a.m. I also had my brother in law with me. Headed out and set up for a kick back day. Shortly into the drift I'm on with a Mako, after a short battle the meat part of the day done with a 100 lb fish and everything else is catch and release. I hooked the next mako also, about an 80 lb fish which we released. Then my brother-in-law hooks up, after a short while another release. Last up was Bill to get hooked up. I was getting drilled on my outside rig, so Bill and I pulled the bait and switch move on the Mako and it worked like a champ. Bill was hooked up on 15lb line with an 75-80lb mako. This fight lasted for a while due to light line, but after 30min. we had the fish at leader and released that one to. In between all the mako's we caught released about 9 or 10 blues. It was a great day, with good company and a lot of action.

Only shitty part of the day was on the home, one the brakes on the trailer started smoking. But my brother-in-law took the whole damn thing apart on the side of the freeway, dis-engaged the brake that was toast and got us back on the road. It pays to have mechanic with you!

Scott,

Excellent report. Sounds like a great day on the pond with some good friends. Whereabouts did you fish, 14 mile bank? Thinking of taking my bro from Ohio out with his two boys in a few weeks and may try some sharking if the exotics are hit and miss.

No more fucking talk of catching Makos last weekend, We fucking skunked, had one or two hanging in the chumline, threw it every fucking peice of candy I had for nothing. Days end we trolled up the slick to barely get bit by a pup that didn't stick anyway!

Anyway, congrats Scotty, did Justin go with you???

Scott thanks again for taking me out yesterday. I had a great time and can't wait to get YOU out there and fish the light line. Only way to fish for the smaller makos.I was stoked that you got your mako on your boat and that you brother in law got his very fish mako.Just one fucking question how come your fish was 100 lbs. and my fish was only 75 or 80 lbs.YOU SUCK Bill

Hey guy's where do you pick up your chum? or do you make your own? I just built a chum slick grinder bucket combo.It will pump 750 gal. per hour over board to make my own slick,With built in grinder to make use of all my old fish carcasses.I was wondering if there is a place to buy pre-made chum blocks? Any info would be awsome. Thanx Jim

Jim,
You can buy frozen buckets of chum at most tackle shops and the local fuel docks also sell them. We use them plus we make as much mackeral as we can before heading out. I also heard John's fish market in Dana Point sells 50# blocks of mackeral.

Everyone has different opinions on the subject, but I used to have on board a chum grinder. It was huge pain in the ass!! We just use the frozen chum blocks and buy the refills and keep filling the same bucket through the day. It's far the work and makes a much more enjoyable day of fishing. Pay attention to your slick and sure you change you bucket before the block runs out, to not break the slick. Always make your bait before heading out!
