Perfect day on the water but the salmon are still hard to get to bite. We have a new low front in and believe that’s the cause. On the upside, bluefin tuna are here in Monterey Bay! If the tuna stick around for a couple days we will start our tuna runs.
Perfect weather today but the fish were not cooperating, Lost at least five salmon today and came home with one. Keep the tip up and tight lines!
Very nice water today with small seas and little breeze. Lots of commercial boats in our fishing area today and the bite was slower than usual but we still got six hookups, lost one to a sealion, two came unbuttoned and three came home with the group.
Tyler and I went commercial salmon fishing today and we got ’em good! We will be fishing commercial occasionally and will have salmon for sale at the dock. Shoot me your name and phone number if you want to pick up fresh salmon the day we fish. We have to unload the fish before the next day charter. Because it’s commercial caught we are not permitted to cut/filet the fish. You can only buy a whole fish.
Flat calm water again today and the fish are still here! Hooked into ten salmon and brought home five. Great time!
With the low pressure for the past couple days the salmon have been tough to find and get them to bite. We got lucky today and hooked into six and brought home four nice salmon. The low is supposed to be gone after tomorrow so salmon fishing should pick up.
Salmon catching has slowed down even more than yesterday. Hopefully things go back to catching limits tomorrow.
Fish were active again today but just couldn’t get them all in the boat. Hooked into 11 brought home five. Perfect weather again.
Salmon limits again on the MEGA-BITE. Wow, doesn’t get any better than this. In fact, salmon catching hasn’t been this good in over twenty years. Limits for our party of six today plus crew limits. 16 nice salmon to 13 pounds and the boat got back to the dock early! We will be running two salmon trips a day on weekends starting May 4th and will continue for the foreseeable future.
*Perfect weather with flat seas. Salmon bite is going off the hook and and limits are the norm! Jurassic Park trips are producing limits of Lingcod and some big Pacific Snapper! Don’t know how long the weather and the salmon will stay so if you want to get in some great fishing now’s the time to book your trip! We are booking for three boats now.*
(RAYBERT) Took the Raybert out for a salmon setup shakedown and it was wild! Limited out on salmon in about an hour and a half. Lot of whales to watch too. RAYBERT is now ready for salmon service! Good job Captain Ray getting the boat ready for the salmon season.
(MEGA-BITE) Rockcod fishing was a bit on the slow side today but ended well with a fantastic Orca Whale show. Great time and some quality fish.
Folks, the salmon fishing is off the hook right now. Best fishing in over twenty years and limits are common. We schedule three boats now so chances are we can get you out there soon. Look at our Availability Calendar for open seats. You can now view the schedule for three boats.
Jurassic again and wow! Limited out on lingcod right at the start then we went to work on catching canary, brown, vermilion and olive pacific snapper. Water was a bit chunky. The salmon bite is going real strong now too.
Jurassic Park trip today and what a great time and what a load of fish! Fish are biting as soon as your rig hits the bottom. Brought home 175 pounds of lingcod and brown, yellow-tail, canary, olive, and red pacific snapper to nine pounds and petrale sole! Weather was perfect. The salmon bite is red hot right now too.
Jurassic and salmon trip today and it was a long one! Filled the box with limits of lings and some BIG rockcod then switched over to salmon trolling. We spent a bit too much time on the rockcod and not enough on the salmon.
We hooked a good number of fish but only got a couple in the boat. Better luck next time.
Weather was challenging for our Jurassic trip and we traveled well over fifty miles. Found some lingcod, cabezon and nice rockcod.
Jurassic today and the fish were hot! Limited out on lingcod then went for big copper, canary, brown, and yellow tail pacific snapper.
The salmon are still scattered and we hooked into five.
Water still a little mixed up from the storms but we found some fish to cooperate. A lot of fun and some great catching.
Headed out with the moms and grade-schoolers today and what a great time! The 8-10 year-olds were busy all morning hooking up fish. Got into some really nice blues, yellow tail, browns and red pacific snapper. Taco night!
The wind has finally started coming down and we’re ready for some more salmon fishing. Our past few days were for Jurassic Park so we didn’t get to fish salmon and with high winds it’s not possible to fish Jurassic Park so… we stayed at the dock. Couple more days of local potluck then we hit the water again for salmon! We have a few seats left in April on the MEGA-BITE and plenty of seats available on the Salmon Streaker and Raybert.
Today was supposed to be a Jurassic Park trip but with the good salmon bite going on it was decided to go for salmon. Well, the bait signs seemed to have moved away and the fish were scattered. We hooked into four salmon within the first hour and got two in the boat. The group then decided to make a run up the coast to Deep Reef. By the time we got there the wind was already up and the fishing was pretty slow but found some big yellowtail, canary and brown pacific snapper. The guys worked real hard and put in a good effort today.
Crushed it. Today was our first salmon trip for 2019 and it did not disappoint. We found some bait and birds and worked it all day and found some fish. Lots of fish. We hooked into 17 fish, let one short one go, three came off at the boat and the good news is… we brought home six limits plus crew fish for a total of 13 NICE salmon in the box! Yep, MEGA-BITE crushed it.
Today is the first day of the salmon season and the fish are here and they’re biting!
Fished the local reefs today and our two groups from Reno did great! Limited out on blue, yellow tail, brown, and red pacific snapper and got to enjoy a whale show too! Blues were as big as three pounds!
Jurassic was on fire today. Limits of lingcod (let a couple more go back to grow) and big canary and olive pacific snapper. Great day!
Today is the first day of our 2019 fishing season and we are excited! Should be a banner year for both potluck and salmon fishing.
