We had a great week of fishing at the local hot spots and all three islands. We met some really great new friends on these trips and had a great time on all. We all know fishing has not been the best but every day is a different day and we really try hard to put our customers on fish. When we fished Clemente, the yellows were there, and we were able to land 1 of 4 but they were not in a feeding frenzy. Calico bass fishing still remains excellent on the back side. Water temp was right between 65-66â¦ On the following trip we opted another island in search of some exotics. The open party trip of 5 guys produced 8 White Sea bass, 7 Sheepshead and 2 Calicos. All the customers agreed to release all the big sheepshead and most of the calico bass that were caught. Great practice.
Here are some random pics of both trips:
Roy and his crazy gear:
One of our local charters was a special charter for kids. The charter master , Matt, brought out five kids who wanted to try fishing and they ended up loving it. We took them to our usual honey holes to get the kids on some bent rods. They all love it and had a blast. All smiles across their faces. Simple Double reversed dropper loops did the job. Local water does seem a bit cold for this time of season. Right around 62.

The following trip after that produced one of the biggest local lings I have ever seen. It tipped the scales at 37lbs. Truly a big fish. The fish was caught by the father-son team Bob and Grayson Keleman. Again on their trip, they brought a bunch of young kids who wanted to do some fishing. They had such a great time learning how to fish and by the end of the day, they caught fish all on their own. Local fishing as still been a little inconsistent with the sand bass and barracuda action. In the mean time, to fill the sacks and keep the kids busy, the rockfish and sculpin are still biting well. Our crew really caters well towards family and kids! Give us a call if you would like more info on these trips.
Its fanning fins were almost big enough to wrap around the kid:
The following trip, Judy Rose from Arizona had chartered the boat for her family. Fish counts have been ok but like I said, everyday is a new day. They ended up going to SBI and catching full limits of White Sea bass for passengers and crew. Total count for the trip was 30 White Sea bass, 1 Halibut, 20 Calico bass all released), and a handful of big sheep head which were all released as well. They had a trip of a lifetime. She was so pleased with the boat and the operation that I had to share this email with you guys:

Captain Chris and Family:
The following trip, Roy came out with his 3 friends again and wanted to try some sea bass fishing. His group of 4 anglers ended up bringing home 6 White Sea Bass and a bag full of the regular calicos and sheep head. One of our most used rigs is simply the Aki Hook with a 3/8 egg sinker. Simple yet very effective. Fishing has been very tough but you just have to be out there as much as you can. Finding the right conditions is what it is all about.
