Another nice day of local rockfish. Today we went out with 14 anglers and caught limits of good fish. Plenty of Olives, and Blues. We also had a fair amount of Vermillions and Canaries. No keeper Lings today though. Hopefully the Lings will start coming over the rails.

Salmon fishing today was a lot of trying out different areas and no catching. We covered a lot of ground today, fishing at the Soquel hole, the Paharo, the northwest corner and even out in front of Santa Cruz harbor. No dice. We witnessed a small boat catch one that was too small just a…

Today was a great day for local fishing. Limits for 17 anglers with several nice Vermillions, Coppers, Canaries and Olives. Of course just like any local trip, we had to keep moving away from the small Rosy rockfish and we also had several small Lings. We ended up with nice overall bags. Only one keeper…

It took a little while for us to get into an area where the fish were biting but once we did it was lights out fishing. Big Vermillion and green spots. Not to mention some absolutely MASSIVE yellow tails. It was hard to decide who had the most impressive catch but the biggest fish wound…

Weather tried to make things tough but the fish made it easy. The first fish hooked up 30 seconds into the first drop and it was on from there. Quite a few big rockfish were pulled up including a 8 pound Vermillion, some big Bocaccio and as has been normal this year some very nice…

Out salmon fishing today with deckhand Andrew and 7 anglers. We caught 3 keepers and 2 shorties. Plenty of missed bites and fish that just wouldn’t stay on the hook. The last half hour of the day we decided to make a 20 minute drift for some rockfish so everyone could at least have dinner…

Another great day for bottom fish. Coppers and big reds were a pretty common sight throughout the trip. Lings started biting early and slowly moved off as the day went along. Nice yellowtail rockfish seemed to follow the boat wherever we went. A bit of a cold day but the fishing was hot enough to…

Great day of fishing on the chubasco. The bite started right away and the fish were flying in the boat. We caught our limit of rockfish by 10am. Only one ling cod but absolutely MASSIVE canarys and bocaccio! Really great trip today.

Slow start to the day. The fish were thick but didnt seem interested in biting at first. We scratched up some good yellow tails and a few coppers. After a couple hours of that the fish seemed to wake up. Big Copper and Canary rockfish seemed to be everywhere. Finished out the day by noon…
