Offshore Mixed Bag Trip with Oscar Carillo

Had Oscar back again this year for his first trip offshore this year. Started out trolling for tuna but not a lot of life, hit a wreck and began jigging, got a few cod and decided to try some sharking, no wind and calm conditions made it difficult to get a good shark drift, nonetheless Oscar still battled a 10 foot Blue Shark. Shifted gear and went to another wreck, had good action landing another half dozen cod to 15lbs, and monster ling, great ending to a beautiful day!

Offshore Mixed Bag Trip with the John Strauch Charter

Had John on board with Paul his son Bryce and buddy Craig. Plan was to try for tuna, get Bryce his first shark and jig some cod and pollack. Found some life and started trolling, after 5 miles of no touches picked up and ran to another spot another 5 miles of no bites and I changed gears to keep the crew engaged. Hit a wreck and jigged up Pollack and nice Cod. Once we had a nice box of tasty treats we went into shark mode. Had a perfect drift and Bryce landed his first shark, the bites came every 15 minutes landed close to a dozen blue sharks, until the makos showed up. First one was a legal but small Mako that gave us 3 great jumps, tagged that one and waited for the right one. Next one was the one, John fought her for a while and tailroped a beautiful 83 incher. Scales were closed, but she was fat estimate 220-240.

Seabassing with the Randy Jones and the Blues Brothers Crew

Had Randy coordinate a Blues brothers outing with Reel Class and Megan Beth for their club members. Had members Carl, Mike, Lou, Glenn, and Steve, tried to make bait early but only had half a dozen livies in the well. Tried a few drifts but no luck, went into Seabass mode, first 2 spots and we had 50 keeper seabass in the box. Went back on the Striper hunt, after an hour guys wanted more seabass, went and got some more. Tried one more try for the Stripers again no luck, ended the day with a good pick of Seabass, had over a 100 keepers for the crew until we had the a huge fish on, after a major battle by Carl I slid the net under a beautiful 15.5 pound Tog, what an awesome fish and even cooler release.

Striper-Seabass with the Horst Klein Charter

Had Horst back for his annual trip with regulars, Ed,Herman, Kevin, Steve, and Scott. Got our bait and took our first drift, went 3-6 on fish to 32lbs in the first half hour and figured it would be game on, as the seas settled out the boat traffic increased and it was downhill from there. Changed gears to do some seabassing limited in spots since I coulnd't go over the 3 mile line, but managed half a dozen. The guys wanted to try for an evening striper bite that never materialized where we were. Great seeing the guys the again on a nice day.

Bottomfishing with Dennis Woelkers

Had Dennis and his dad Harry out today,made our bait and headed north to avoid the oncoming inshore storm. Made some drifts but no luck, based on the dismal reports we decided to head offshore and hit the bottom species. Landed over 20 keeper seabass to 3lbs and ling until the rains came and never stopped. Decided to head back inshore and try for some stripers, fog rolled in made that difficult, decided to end the day early.
