Headed out for an afternoon potluck trip with a bit of a 65 degree sea breeze for our friends from Reno where it was 100 degrees. The fishing was off the hook! Limits plus of olive, blue, black, brown, canary and red pacific snapper. Fun! Ceviche and tacos tonight.
Another great day for local potluck fishing and the fish really cooperated!

When he was 13 he got to watch his dad bring in a ling. Now it’s Kieran’s turn. Good job.
Awesome day today fishing with my good friends Holly, Becky, Royce and Rex for another trip to Jurassic Park. After making bait (catching live bait) headed out to the fishing grounds. A bit bumpy today but that didn’t deter our crew one iota. As soon as we dropped in we had fish on! Lingcod were biting like crazy! Only needed eight for limits and came home with nine lings (one for the captain!) to 16 pounds. And a couple were aqua blue. Topped it off with some snapper and we had us one heck of a day!
Beautiful day on the bay with a slight breeze, 65 degree air temp and flat as a pancake water. And! The fish were biting! Nailed six nice lingcod then got into some good action of blue, olive, canary, brown and red pacific snapper. 12yo Brian got his first ever lingcod today.

Ran out to our Jurassic Reef in flat-as-a-pancake water and no wind. As soon as we dropped in the BIG fish started to bite. We nailed ’em good today with seven lingcod to 12 pounds, 30 snapper to six pounds and petrale sole. Awesome day today!
Still flat calm water and the fog is gone! Stayed close to home and were able to get the fish on a wild bite. Fish were bigger and we didn’t have to search much for limits of BIG blue, olive, black & yellow, and red pacific snapper and two BIG lingcod. What a difference a few hours makes. Great trip.

Really nice flat calm day for our Jurassic trip. Took a while to get to our spot but when we finally did it was a wide-open bite.

Add lingcod and halibut from mom and dad and we had one fantastic day!
What a trip! Limits for all including ten big red pacific snapper to six pounds.

Real nice weather for our local potluck trip. We nailed the snapper for eight limits of taco and ceviche meat. Fun fun group.
Salmon was a long shot so we decided to try for local halibut. Went squishing for our live squid and mackerel then headed to the halibut grounds. Slow start but then things picked up pretty good! In addition to hooking a bat ray and a shark, hooked into eight halibut. Had to return two hali’s to grow and a few times we came up with ripped up bait. Wound up taking four nice halibut home.
After making bait (jigging up squid and mackerel) we headed a ways up the coast. Dropped in our live squid and wham! The party started. The kids did real good with vermillion (red pacific snapper) to eight pounds, lingcod and big blues. But… Dad/Uncle had to school them with his 15 pound lingcod. Great day with limits of snapper and we only kept four lingcod.
Was supposed to go for salmon but with the slow bite we opted for Jurassic Park (long range) instead. Lots of action and lots of fun. Whales, dolphin, a great white shark and big fish including lingcod, copper, red, canary, olive, and blue pacific snapper. Got our first kelp greenling of the season too. Limits of snapper for all plus crew limit.

It’s time for the MEGA-BITE crew to take our vacation! Tom stayed put, Kai fished commercial and Max went on surfing trips. We’ll be back on the 28th. July is already booked. August has a lot of openings yet to be filled. 7/27 update: Bluefin in the 120 pound range are being hooked and sometimes landed.
Great trip with some of my favorites, Kai and Jaden. These two kids smacked the rockcod and lingcod good today. Brother Meleke was in charge of red snapper with his biggest going six pounds. Jaden landed a 33.25 inch lingcod. Holly and Ron (mom & dad) also contributed their fair share.
Our group from 105 degree Sacramento came to fish in 65 degree temps on flat calm seas. Combined with lots of fish, made their trip a very enjoyable experience.
