    we had a beautifil day this past Sunday, we had a call from our fishing guide that sierras were hungry and angry, so we checked the weather for the next weekend and it was perfect.

    we have a beautiful morning in the Marina with our plans to go directly to the Consag Island.

    few miles ahead we saw the Island bit closer and outside the marina the sea was calm too

    soon we where aside the rock, and those sea birds were a good sign of fishing

    another sign of a good day of fishing were the school of sardines, I wish my camera have polarized lenses as my sunglasses have, but if you look closer you will see in the middle of the pic the school of sardines

    and we got our rods ready for testing the waters trolling some deep diving lures

    but the sea lions were also ready and they were F&^& hungry

    but there were plenty of sierras for the sea lions and for us too, here are a double hook set, if you look closer you will see two lures and two fishes hanguing from the hands of the fishing guide

    they were eating the trolling lures and 3oz Kroc spoons, it was awesome to catch them on the calcutta 400TE, 50# braid and a 60# steel leader.. fun fun, beautiful colors on the Sierra right? almost too green like a Dorado

    perfect picture, no blodydecks on a panga, but what about a bloody icecooler?
    we had out limits at noon

    our captain had a busy day unhooking the fish

    this is when we called it a day and were heading for the harbor

    on our way back to the marina we stopped shortly on the sunked boat zone, which its located in the very front on the town just few miles from the shore... we caught some big and fatty croakers

    it was a really great day on the water with some of my close friends.

    Those are some decent sized sierras. Shame the sea lions were such a problem. I love catching sierras on 6 or 8 lb spinning rods.

    dang.. 8lb rods? wow that would be exiting, l could only imaging the fight, the big sierras gave a really good fight to my calcutta 400TE (drag no locked all )

    sea dogs are over the place at this time, eating for free

    We destroyed the Sierras same way and place last July. No dogs seen. Bring steel leaders. Cross sliced and fried, compares to Wahoo. A great fish!!!
