We only have one seat still available for our Jurassic Park lingcod trip next Sunday the 29th. Our new lingcod fishing grounds are producing lingcod to 18 pounds and I’m sure there’s even bigger ones out there just waiting to be caught. Click here to sign up!
We’re still waiting for the official word when fishing season will open. I expect May 1st we can fishing for everything except salmon. Salmon will probably remain closed for another season.
That’s a wrap folks! We had a wonderful year of fishing and meeting up with both old and new friends. Lot’s of fish caught and lot’s of fun. Tyler, Greg, Rodney and I appreciate your business and very much look forward to fishing with you again in 2024. Fishing season opens back up May 1, 2024
Big water today and big fish too for grandpa Tom and eight year-old grandson Tom (aka Hook). Great time. Lots of fish for the holiday.
Out to the deep for lings and things today. Got our bait then tried for lingcod but they weren’t biting. Ran up the coast for rockcod and did okay. Water was a wee bit bUmPy today.
Out to the deep today with high hopes of big fish. Mother nature had other plans for us. East wind made fishing difficult but we did manage to knock out limits of chili peppers and green spots.
Out to the deep again for lingcod and rockcod. Water wasn’t very nice so it was a bumpy day. Got to the lingcod grounds and the mackerel have taken over the area. Mackerel went for miles and the lingcod weren’t interested in what we had to offer so we headed up the coast for rockcod. Found the chili peppers and green spots and a fat red and petrale sole!
Ran out for lingcod today and made bait but the mackerel were thick! Turns out the lings already had their meal for the day so we headed up the coast and got into the chili peppers and petrale sole. Perfect weather and water today and a little bit of a whale show too.
Out to the deep lingcod part of Jurassic Park today. After making bait we drop in our lines and picked away at the lings. Water and wind were ugly but we managed to get some lings to bite. Lost one big one too. Happy family with lingcod, sand dabs and mackerel on the dinner menu.
Out to the deep for Jurassic Park. Fishing was a little slow due to the storm that passed through the past couple of days. We worked hard and we got limits for five of green stripe, green spot, and canary rockcod.
Our first bluefin tuna trip of the season. Water was perfect. Quite a few boats fishing but not a lot of fish caught today. Water looked good so maybe the big tuna bite will be soon.
Out to the deep again and we got into the fish right away. Variety of rockfish and a 17 pound lingcod.
Lingcod gear testing in the deep today. The lingcod were big too with an average of 15 pounds and the biggest went 18 pounds.
Out to the deep once again and the fish were waiting for us! Knocked out limits of big green spots, chili peppers and reds today for five. Great time watching the youngsters 8-yo Margo and 10-yo Fin wind up their fish with mom, dad and grandpa John. Good whale show too!
Jurassic Park is the best fishing we’ve seen in many years. Today we boated early limits of BIG chili peppers. Some of the fish in the pic.
Another epic day in the deep with chili pepper and green spot rockcod limts for five. Big fish!
Another awesome day at the deep. Limits of big chili peppers and green spots. Awesome weather with flat seas and 65 air temp.
Little bumpy water early then the water laid down. Today we caught our biggest red (vermillion rockfish) ever at 11 pounds! Also got limits of 2-3 pound chili peppers. Awesome catch today. Just some of the fish and people in the pics.
Perfect water today for our Jurassic Park trip to the deep. As soon as we dropped our lines in it was game on! Nine year-old Allison brought in the first and biggest fish of the day then it was a steady pick of yellowtail, canary, red, green spots. Limits for four!
Perfect day out in the deep with limits of canary, green spots, reds, and petrale sole. Our biggest red yet at 8.3 pounds!
Gorgeous day out at the deep today and limits of chili pepper, yellowtail, and canary rockfish. Water was flat as a pancake and no wind.
Awesome weather forecast throughout this week into the weekend with flat seas and no wind. Air temps 65-70 degrees. Great time to go fishing!
Ran out to Jurassic Park ledge and whacked the reds, canaries, and chili peppers.
Wow! Slam dunked sixty nice chili peppers in no time! Beautiful water and 72 air temp. This is as good as it gets! Just some of the fish in the pictures.
Another wild fishing day at Jurassic Park. Water was as flat as a pancake, zero wind, and 70 degrees air temp. As soon as we dropped in our lines it was like catfishing in a barrel. Double after double the big chili peppers came up. The pic shows some of the catch for the day. Fun fun fun!
Awesome Jurassic Park trip today with early limits for four (pic only shows some of the fish and missing one fisherman). Thanks Marvin (and his mother) for sharing the tasty pupusas!
Nice flat water for our afternoon halibut trip. Went down the coast where the halibut had been biting and trolled. No takers! Went to a Capitola reef and picked up some blue rockfish. Today was the last day for local rockfish fishing. Will open again May 2024.
The weather report indicated poor weather offshore so we stayed closer to Santa Cruz for a local rockcod trip. Nailed six limits of blues, olives and reds. Dropped a couple lingcod. Weather was nice!
Nice weather today for our local rockfish trip. Was slow at first then after an hour or so the bite went wide open! Lost a few lings in the melee too 🙁 Came home with five limits of blues and olives. Half the blues were pretty big too.
Local rockcod trip today. With the effects from storm Hilary, close to shore fishing was slow (too much ground swell). We moved out a couple miles to deeper water and found lots of blues and olives. Kept the best 50 for Sylvia and her family. Came back early and had a great picnic on the boat! Thank you Sylvia, great food and great chatting with your beautiful family.
