Captain Lopez is in charge this trip and Ken’s Custom Reel trip is underway. Looks like smooth sailing – check back for reports in a few days.
It always seems like there is a never ending list of challenges that we face daily. Finding the fish, lockjaw, bait not biting to name a few. Today the wind event that you all dealt with back at home has reached the fishing grounds as bad as it was advertised. Landing fish in these adverse conditions is extremely tough, but we made it through with very few heartbreaks as luck was definitely on our side. Planet landed a 251 and Jan Howard (pictured) did an incredible job landing a quality fish on sardine gear in 25 kts and severe sea condition. We certainly hope the forecast is downgraded as we are looking in the face of some very choppy weather.
Another tough day on the grounds as when it looks like things are going to get going the fish just stop biting. We scratched just a few throughout the day and had a little dark time deal that really helped the cause. Pat,Gordo,and Jeff show a few of the handfull we got with Gordo’s 226 being the days largest.

Tough fishing once again as lots of rail time was necessary to catch a fish. We looked at fish all day on the machines but there were periods of time where we would have nothing hooked. Jake Waardenburg has had the hot hand all trip and he shined again today with a 279lb beauty. The guys
