Captain's Log

11-10-18 Saturday

First day of crab fishing for us here at J&M. Today we headed west of the point to see if we could knock out our limits of rockfish so we had plenty of time to pull our crab pots. The fish were up and they didn’t disappoint. Our guys took a few minutes to get…

11-5-18 Monday

Today was a fast action day. We were heading down the coast towards Carmel bay to start our day. All along the way big schools of fish were all over the rocks we were passing over. I couldn’t stand passing over any more fish without at least seeing what they were. We dropped in on…

Chubasco was loaded up with a big group of kids from Merced high school today. Sun shine and calm seas made for a nice day of fishing. A quick bite in shallow water of all different types of fish including some very nice bocaccio and canary rockfish. Sea conditions worsened later in the day but…

Bottom fish, bottom fish, bottom fish! Mother nature decided to test our anglers today. While searching for a good starting spot it became apparent we were in for a hoot and a half. After trying our luck with a few small, fast moving schools of fish, the decision was made to change location and approach.…

Tuesday, October 23rd Fish Report

Hey guys, Captain Isaiah here with the fish report for Tuesday. Took out a chartered group of highschoolers from our local city of Greenfield for a quick four hour trip. Great group of enthusiastic first timers. Fish weren’t exactly on fire but the kids had a blast, and the first fish on the boat was…

10-21-18 Sunday

Today was a trip of hard earned limits. The forecast for the Monterey area was 10-15 knots of wind, which would have been nice. Almost as soon as we stopped to fish the wind was on us. Not 10 knots though, we had between 20 to 25 knots out of the Northwest. No drifting for…

10-20-18 Saturday

Another great day of fishing. Today, trusty Deck hand Monty and I had a blast fishing with Mike and all the guys from River view farms from Salinas. First thing in the morning Amber and Katlyn were just about to finish checking in the charter when suddenly the Fish and Game licensing system went down……

Went down the coast today and fished with whole squid and strips of squid on 2 hook rigs. A lot of fish were showing on the meter but, the fishing started out slow. After deciding that the problem was most likely the sound of the engines running, and not the fisherman or our tactics, I…

Recap on the 2017 Rockfish & Lingcod Season

The crew at J&M has spent some time reflecting on the past season as winter time rolls in. We learned a lot this first year as a crew. While some of our crew members have been fishing commercially and recreationally their whole lives, some learned all the ropes as time went on this season. We…

Recap on the 2017 Salmon Season

Our first Salmon season as a new company! Our crew learned a lot this season about the fishery and about fishing in general. Some of our crew has been commercially and recreationally fishing for salmon for years while others had their first season on the books.   Fishing has been tough the past few years…

May 29 2017

Great day on the Chubasco! Weather conditions were decent. We fished squid for live bait to start our day and ended up with limits of Lingcod (26) and 130 Rockfish for 13 anglers.

The Sur Randy had a private charter with 6 anglers. The Chubasco came in with 32 Lingcod and 88 Rockfish. The Sur Randy came…
