We’re in for another wet one heading into this weekend. That will make it every weekend this month. I never thought I’d be jonesing this hard to go rockfishing. I’m holding onto the hope that when I wake up Saturday morning at San Nicolas Island aboard Eldorado Sportfishing it will be clear and fishable…assuming we make it off the dock. Wish me luck.
Assuming we do get out, I like the prospects of the trip.
Every other trip they’ve been catching (or at least had shots at) yellowtail. They have live squid and you know how it is…good things can happen when you have the candy bait. Even if we don’t get on the yellows, I’m excited about the prospect of catching a sheephead (aka That Damn Fish) this early in the year. They’ve been getting quality models of them (pictured top) on the regular.
This week the Ultra out of 22nd Landing went on their inaugural trip of the year. Again, availability of live squid led to a good outcome for the anglers onboard. They ended up with 6 halibut, 1 seabass! (above), 6 calico bass, 28 reds and 2 lings (boat has a max load of 10 anglers).
