Mixed Bag Open Boat Canyon trip

Hosted an open trip with new guys on board Pat,
Dave and Mike, started inshore and got a nice

Tuna with Ricardi Crew

Had John Henry one of my ex players, uncle John, and buddies
Anthony and Pete out. Started out inshore where the life was
And decided to head to canyon for mixed bag of species, bad
Move! Got to canyon and fishing was spotty at best some caught
Most didn’t, we were one we got skunked. Tried mahi fishing but
3-4 knot current kept the mahi from biting. Tilefishing was out of
The question. Found a log and bagged a bunch of triggers and almaco
Jacks. Decided to try inshore spot to save the trip, found a school of
yellowfin on top and it was game on, had fish blowing up the spread!
One of my most challenging and satisfying trips of my career!

Canyon Quickie with Santiago crew

Had Santiago out with Son Andrew and buddies
Woody and Tony. Plan was to shark fish the mudhole with
Uncertain weather, at the dock wind wasn’t too bad
So pointed the bow towards the chicken, after no bites and
Barely life had to make a decision. Seas had gotten nicer so
I gave the charter an option to sprint to the Hudson and fish a few
Hours which they jumped on Started on the pots and got some nice
gaffer mahi, first ones of the year. Then went on the troll getting 2
Yellowfin right away, after an hour of no luv went back to the mahi

Had Brian with Son Gavin and nephew Garrett. Took
Them out for their first canyon trip ever, plan was to
Get them a wide variety of action and best experience
Possible and I think we accomplished that. Took a

And drop for Tiles until the tuna woke up. Had each guy
Land their first Tiles and they were big had two 30lb pounders
Right away. Went back to trolling and ran across two Huge
Blue marlin that wouldn’t commit, had each guy land their
First tunas and then hit the pots for mahi. Water was warm 77
And clean but no takers. Ran inshore To look for bluefin and
Found the life, whales, Mola’s, birds, bait and tons of marks
Was able to pull a nice yellowfin out of the area and decided
Time to go home, cruised home at 40 knots on calm seas!

Not! Stayed with bluefin for an hour and couldn’t get another
Bite. Decided to head to the canyon got to the edge and heard
Slow fishing on the tuna so we dropped for Tiles. Had one right away
But bad drift made for terrible fishing. Went on the troll for a few hours
And still slow. Decided to run back inside and found Blue Planet/Nat Geo
