Just returned for a 3 day on the Shogun Aug 13th thru the 16th Was looking forward to fishing with Aaron since I have not been on the boat since norm and Bruce ran it I was even more excites as the fish counts have been doing real good. Left T.O around 3:30 Thursday morning arrived at the Landing about 6am in hopes to find a parking spot. Within an hour I got one of the only spots to be had and unloaded my gear and went back to sleep in the car. Checked in at 10am for the 11am departure. Got on the boat stowed my gear away and then find out that Aaron will not be running the trip bummer. We get to the bait receiver and loaded up on bait Captain gathers us in the galley to go over the game plan. We head str8 to the Coronado Islands and fished there from 1:30 to dark for 2 yellowtail total Captain kept giving us a hour by hour report of what the other boats were doing on the tuna grounds a few hits a few misses. Ok scratch day one off the books. Day 2 We stopped on a bird school and there we got 101 yellow fin on all types of methods I got what turned out to be a jack pot fish (jackpots were 1st 2nd 3rd) on the glow flat fall 250g first drop at just about 300 feet. I also landed another 5 fish that day and farmed about the same. This would be our only real stop of the day. By day's end we had to go back in to get bait. We arrive at the bait dock and see the line of boats getting ready to go out. OK so it's not a 3 day its 2 1.5 day trips Capt gives us the night speech on how good we did as some boats had a lot less. I assure you the way the trip was going I was excited to get that stop. Last day Saturday and we are on the move as we did not have fish under the boat we went a little out west away from all 50 other boats that we saw, the only boat around us was the Condor which slid into not 1 but 2 areas we were closer to, one was a kelp the other were bird schools this was probably the shittiest move I have ever witnessed on the water BTW good job Condor you got 15 fish for the day Karmas a bitch. We hit numerous areas thru the day we went North we went east for a lot of nothing Sometime around 5-6 pm we get back to where most of the fleet were fishing and got lucky to find some birds and we got on some fish I got 2 from this last stop the boat total for the day was 28. As were where scratching away on this last stop umm we ran out of sardines so we called it a trip What worked for me 25lb fluro leader sardine 40lb with Flat fall 250g glow All in all I still had a load of fun caught 7-8 fish I ended up giving away my fish to people who did not get fish made some acquaintances the food was way better than the last time I was on the boat. Oh yeah 1st time in 10 years I had something stolen on the boat it was my fish works outerwear jacked that I left in the galley (which I always do) after the cook announced on the PA about the missing jacket it magically materialized on the tackle storage.
