Beautiful water today and great crabbing and fishing. Fished first to get our limits of nice olive, blue, canary and red pacific snapper then to the crab grounds. Big crab and plenty of them too. Limits of crab and fish for everyone!
Nice flat calm water today for our Jurassic crab combo. Started with getting our crab at the crab grounds then out deep for the lingcod. Found no love out deep so headed up to Davenport and got some nice fish. Came closer to port and finished up with limits of BIG blues, olives, browns, coppers and a few red pacific snapper to five pounds!
Another chilly morning for a local crab combo. Started catching fish as soon as we dropped in for limits plus crew fish of big blues, olives and red pacific snapper to five pounds. Then headed out for crab and even though someone ran our gear we still ended up getting our crab. Nice day and happy 17th birthday Aidan!
Chilly this morning for our local crab combo trip. Got out to the crab grounds and someone’s been busy pulling our gear and taking our crab. Fortunately they didn’t get them all but it sure does make a lot of extra work for us to get the crab we need. Came in closer for rock fishing and WOW! BIG blues again mixed in with a good grade of olive pacific snapper.
Great day for a local potluck and crab combo trip. Weather was a little warmer and the seas were a bit more comfortable (for most). Ran through the crab gear then came into shallower water for our rockfish and it was game on! Pretty much non-stop catching. Came home with fish and crab limits for five including some red pacific snapper pushing seven pounds!
Jurassic Park baby! Ran out to the crab pot farm and got our crabs then headed to the deep for lingcod. First drift we nailed a couple nice lings, the biggest was 18 pounds! Then that was it! Got a few small lings but the lingcod bite died. Fortunately the rockfish bite was good! Came home with limits for six of olive, brown, canary, blue, and red pacific snapper to six pounds! Great day.
This is as good as it gets! Jurassic crab combo today and the fish were ready for battle. After we got our crab we ran out to the deep and started slaying the lingcod pretty much non-stop with BIG coppers, yellowtail and red pacific snapper mixed in. Came home with beautiful crab, rockfish (pacific snapper), and lingcod limits for five. Went big then went home. Great day!
Awesome Jurassic combo trip today. After we got our crab ran out to the deep and got five nice lingcod then came in closer to shore for a wild bite of big blue and olive pacific snapper. Limits for six!
Another day of easterly wind making the water a wee bit uncomfortable but we managed to get out to the crab grounds and come in closer for rockfish and lingcod. Got the crab but the lingcod weren’t biting. Came home with lots of big crabs and plenty of pacific snapper!
Mr Toad’s Wild today and the water wasn’t very kind in the morning. Fortunately we powered on and were able to get our crab then out to the deep for lingcod. Got our lingcod then came closer to shore for rockfish and did good! Happy birthday 13 yo Alex!
Another awesome day at Jurassic Park with crab! After we limited out on crab for five plus two limits for crew we ran to the deep reef and it was game on! Lingcod limits for five plus crew lingcod. What a fantastic time watching these nine year-olds and 14 year-olds step up to the plate. Big haul today.
Flat calm water again for Jurassic Park. Went to the crab pots farm and got our crabs then out to the deep. As soon as we dropped in our live bait it was fish on! Lingcod started biting good then everything simply shut down. Tried a bunch of different depths and couldn’t get a decent bite going. Great guys and a whole lot of fun.
Beautiful flat calm water today for our Jurassic Park trip and the fish were biting real good! Caught our live bait then limited out on lingcod. Stayed out deep for the rockfish and got some nice copper, green spot, yellow tail, brown pacific snapper. Then something BIG took a MEGA-Bait. After a lot of tug of war Richard pulled in a 100 pound soupfin shark. Awesome battle and awesome eating too!
The storm has finally moved out and the weather forecast for the next week at least is perfect for fishing and crabbing! We pulled a crab pot yesterday to check the quality and these crabs are BIG! Should be a great crabbing season. On a sad note, Commercial crabbing has been delayed until at least the beginning of December. Our prayers go out to all the commercial crab fishermen and fisherwomen hoping they get the green light to crab by December 1st. In the meantime recreational crabbing (MEGA-BITE is considered a recreation fishing vessel) is open and will remain open for the remainder of the year.
Local potluck today and the fish were a wee bit skittish due to the incoming storm this weekend. Took a while and a lot of traveling around to find willing fish. We found ’em! Came home with mixed limits of blue, olive, black and red pacific snapper.
Awesome day today in Jurassic Park. Beautiful water, little wind, and lots of action! Lingcod limits for six then headed to the rockcod grounds to top off the tank. Happy birthday John!!!
Well, the wind came up so we had to find some new schools of fish closer to home and we found ’em, big time! Awesome bite and a ton of olive, blue, black, brown and canary pacific snapper. The pic is 13 year-old Troy holding up a couple very nice blacks. Limits for all plus some crew fish.
Awesome flat calm day for a local potluck trip. Got out to one of our lucky spots and it was pretty much a wide open bite with big olives and blues. Also nailed browns, canary and crab cod. Brought home eight limits of beautiful snapper and a very nice lingcod.
Jurassic Park run today and another wow! After catching our live bait we headed for the deep reef and as soon as we dropped in we hooked up with a lingcod. Then a few minutes later, all the rods lit up with lingcod. Now all four rods are hooked up and all four lingcod got boated. The biggest went 21 pounds! After we put seven lingcod in the boat we went closer to shore for limits, plus crew limits, of really big blue and olive pacific snapper What a day!
Now we’re talking! The swell has diminished and the fish were biting like crazy today. Big ones too! Came home with seven high quality limits of medium to big olive, blue, copper, and red pacific snapper. Must have thrown back 30+ smaller fish. Banner day!
Really nice weather for our local potluck trip today with air temps in the low 70s. We nailed limits plus crew limits of quality blue and olive pacific snapper. One short lingcod that went back to grow. Crab season starts in just a few weeks!
Awesome local potluck trip today with our friends from Kenny Rogers Plumbing. Had to move around a lot to get bigger fish and tossed back probably 50 smallies. Came home with limits plus crew limits of quality blue, olive, brown, and red pacific snapper.
Jurassic Park trip today and what a beautiful day with a whale show, sea lions circling the boat, overhead a plane doing acrobats, and some serious lingcod, petrale sole and rockfish catching. The lingcod bite was good! Caught our live bait then ran deep to pull up six lingcod to 15 pounds. Afterwards came in closer to shore for limits of blue, olive and china pacific snapper.
Wind picked up and the fishing went back to slow and small. Tried real hard to find willing fish but kept getting tiny rockfish. Worked all the way up and down the coast, worked shallow then deep water but just couldn’t’ get away from the smaller fish. Came home in the dark with 3/4 limits of small pacific snapper.
Our local potluck trip started out very slow with just a fish here and a fish there until slack tide (11am) then the bite took off! Limits for seven of nice quality blue, black, olive and china pacific snapper. Great group of guys from Modesto.
The fog and the winds have finally subsided and the fish were hungry! Ran out to our secret reef and immediately started hauling in blues and olives. Finished with early limits so came in closer to shore to give halibut a try.
Winds started up a bit and blew away the fog! We fished one of our local honey spots and we got into the rockfish bigtime! Lots of fun with a very beautiful family celebrating 70 year-old Al’s birthday. Great fishing and tons of laughs. Limits of quality pacific snapper.
Seas were a bit choppy and the fog was thick making fishing a little more difficult than usual. Our group trudged through it and were able to come home with some nice olive, blue, black and a couple BIG red pacific snapper.
Ran out to Jurassic Park”s deep reef today and the fishing was good for lingcod and big yellowtail. Especially considering the ground swell that came into town over a week ago. Once it’s gone fishing should go back to red hot!
