Hey guys. I haven’t posted a report in quite sometime. I just leave it up to Cody haha!
We’ve been doing really well out there.
But I also became a charter master for rice bowl charters and have done a couple so far. Another reason I don’t post as much is there are just some down right dickheads and keyboard warriors on this site. Bad vibe. But I’m writing this to hopefully help people out heading offshore in the near future.
We left on Friday the 7th in excellent weather conditions, headed up to the butterfly. On the way there we saw a breezer at the north 9 and quickly put the sonar down. Didn’t end up stopping but was pretty rad to see them.
Got to the butterfly and and the wind came up. It was shitbox that entire evening. And we only got 1 fish at 30lbs on an sk jig.
We then were at the 43 the next day and the fish were all over the place in small Wolfpack’s. All of these fish were 20-25 pounds. We fished it hard and got quite a few. But we wanted to find that larger grade. We stopped on only a handful of kelps that were holding 5-8 pound yellows. We threw a lot of them back as the guys weren’t desperate to keep fish that small which I thought was really cool.
That night we ended up getting down to the 371 zone and started crushing the 40-100 fish on the jigs. They were biting really good. I was getting bit on a zebra flat fall and a all chrome Tady 45 heavy.
The sk jig was the hot jig. If you had one you better hold on. It was on fire. We fished all night and grinded. Sunday we were right inside the canyon staring at pukey point. Huge spots of fish everywhere. All good ones too. 40-100 pounds. They were foaming at mid day.
These things were flat out biting.
When they blew up on the chums I would quickly flyline a bait on 40lb black water and get insta bit. When they quit blowing up we would get them on the sinker rig, and coltsnipers. Katy perry was the golden ticket. Any chromeish jig with pink in it was getting licked. Me and dale were fishing right next to each other when we hooked two on the sinker rig, that one for me was a 50lb fish and dales was a 104 pound fish. He’s and older dude but man he had excellent form and never gave his rod up. He broke that fishes spirit and wound him to the boat. He won the jackpot with that fish. We chased down the schools and kept picking away at them with the local fleet. Was really nice to see all the day boats sliding on a school and hooking the shit out of them.
Fished that night and got more tunas on the jig and that then wrapped up our trip.
We left the done at 2:30 am and made it back to the dock at 5:45
If I were going out, I would have a stickbait, flylined bait outfit with 40lb, a sinker rig with 60lb, and a coltsniper 100g in Katy perry. And a flatfall, or sk jig.
The shogun is an absolute beast of a boat. Renee and crew works so damn hard it’s incredible. He wants to kill the shit out of those things.
Fish are well within range.
Go get em.

    I see you said have a stick bait but didn't hear you say anything about anyone catching them on one or when you would have used it. I usually bring a sp minnow but haven't tossed it yet.

    Usually sport boats want to throw a shit ton of chum at those foaming schools, and that’s what we did. I was hooking them on a Diawa zakana jig. But being on a skiff you bet your bottom dollar I would want a stickbait. You can get pretty close to that foam.

    Hey MK, super good write up and congrats on the fish. Just ghost the haters and don't worry about it. Many more of us appreciate your reports.

    PS, get a hair cut! Just kidding, from a fellow long hair! :D
