Canyon Serious Mixed Bag Trip with the John Trush Charter

Had newcomer John on board with son Nick and future son in law Todd for a canyon trip. Left for the canyons Saturday late afternoon after winds subsided, 1st stop was all we needed, had action right away, landing some nice sized Yellowfin, had a visit with some sharks till the right one showed up, landed a 70 inch beast of Mako that came alive when we had her boat side, after that had a nice 50 inch Sword hit and harvested her. Had a few more bites and converted them to more 70lb yellows. At daybreak made the decision to add some longfin to the mix, landed half a dozen in half an hour to 30lbs to add to the catch. Guys decided they wanted to switch gears and try for more species. Tried some Tilefish wind against tide made for tough conditions but got into Blueline. Switched gears again and went mahi fishing, found a nice patch of fish and landed a 15lb to start but once we lost a few fish the fish scattered. Back at the dock by lunchtime Sunday and beers at the dock with a great crew.

Canyon Mixed Bag with the John MConnell Charter

Had John with nephew Mike and buddy Mark. Made our way to the canyon, on the way to the trolling grounds we stopped on a pot and landed half a dozen mahi to start the trip. Evening troll bite was slow, set up for the chunk and had a 30lb yellow to start the night. Good start for a slow chunking season, had a few other bites that we missed. Blue sharks and mahi through the night kept the crew busy, at 5 am we had nice flurry going 2-5 on nice size yellows. Went on the troll and had no luv, after a few hours crew really wanted to try tiles. Had a decent pick with everyone busting their tile cherries. Final body count, 3 Yellows to 65lbs on Clarks scale, 15 mahi to 12lbs, and 7 Tiles to 25lbs.

Canyon Trip MMRC Turnament

Had regulars Dan Payet, Oscar Carillo, and Jerry Tomaselli out for canyon trip with help from Joe and Ed , goal was to compete in 4 categories tuna,mahi,sword, wahoo. Left to canyon in bad seas making for a long brutal run, knowing that next day in morning would be nice to run home in. Wound up going to Lindenkohl due to good sat shot. Only 1 mahi on evening troll and night chunk. Troll next morning was slow until we found a school of mahi, broke out the spinning rods and went to work on them. After some discussion with crew we decided to make the long run home in calm seas and weigh in our mahi. At the the time we missed first place and 6k by 2 oz! Great guys to fish wth.
