With the offshore scene having some kinks it needs to work out, we opted to spend the day down the beach focusing on some user friendly yellows. As the wind blew on the outside we were fortunate to enjoy fun fishing and good weather throughout the day with certain parts of the day having its highs and lows. The gang had awesome opportunities to enjoy yellowtail fishing at its best with multiple visual bites as well as fast ones- which kept smiles going around. Here are a few shots of day with team Bishop who used amazing teamwork and Brian Le both showing their quality fish.
After yesterday’s boat ride in choppy weather it was nice to stop the boat and enjoy good fishing. We picked at the yellowtail all day and ended up with a pretty good catch. Josh took time away from his creative culinary magic to help us out on deck and is shown with father daughter combo Mike and Cece Keller with one of her many fish she landed today.
We have a 1.5 day trip departing at 4pm today with spots available – grab your passport & fishing poles and come on out.
We went looking down the coast for yellows and when we arrived on scene the area had up welled and the water was cooler and dirty. Not without a plan b we went offshore and like the latest maps showed the water was cleaner and warm. The area we covered was traditional grounds that no one has covered but we found very little. Noah Hiscox boated a sample of what is to come in a form of a nice dorado. The door is open as water conditions are nice as the fish just need to fill in.
We got the sweat off on our day of departure thanks to a local yellowtail bite. Just about everyone aboard caught a fish with many of our folks catching multiple fish. Ty Ty Babros caught a couple of fish and was totally stoked.
Wrapping it up
Today the gang spent some time putting in hard work for the elusive halibut and even though the bites were few and far between it was the challenge that kept it exciting. After a few close calls & heart breaks we did manage to tag a couple for bragging rights and in between drifts a scattering of yellows were thrown in the mix for some last minute freshness. Closing it up, we are going to take full of advantage of this beautiful weather and to head for the barn.
