Cold and windy to start the day but the sea state was perfect. We caught our limit of rockfish by 10:30. Mainly nice sized yellowtail made up the bags but a few schools of blues passed through. We were joined by one of the marine biologists that narrate our whale watching trips. He had a…

We started our day with some serious weather today. There were big swells and plenty of wind chop to go around, but our 9 anglers were intrepid and ready for action. Starting out in 170 feet of water west of the point we caught doubles and singles of nice blue fish. As the current dragged…

Today was a mixed bag all around. We started out fishing in the shallows which, unfortunately, started us off with tiny fish. We went deeper, farther west of the peninsula, which got us alternating quality fish. Nice fish, small fish, nice fish small fish, big fish. So…. we went farther south and drifted a long…

So many fish all over the place today. We had 24 passengers today and the fishing was so good that we got our full limits of rock fish in an hour! Plenty of nice yellow tails and nice blues today. There were small blues mixed in, but, we were able to trade out most of…

Breaking through the fog Cold and foggy conditions upon departure had us all hugging our coffee cups and straining our eyes looking through the mist. Thankfully the sun was able to break through after an hour or so. Heading down the coast towards big sur we were stopped by a very large school of fish…

Lately it seams like each day is split right down the middle with bad weather in the morning and great weather in the middle of the day. Yet another day with limits of rockfish for our 7 passengers and crew after an hour and a half of fishing. Fishing has been great locally here in…

More of the same as far as the rockcod fishing goes. We nailed the schooling fish again in no time flat. Several yellowtails, olives and bluefish went home with our fishers today. With 7 passengers on board there was a ton of elbow room and no tangles to be had. As per our usual, after…

Another day where the fish were doing everything they could to get on a hook. The ocean was pretty sloppy in the morning with northerly winds coming down on us. All of the fishers were hardy though and we got our limits of rockfish without any problems. After we got our fishing done we brought…

The fish were definitely on the snap again today. Limits of fish for 20 fishers in a couple of hours. Lots of blues and yellows with some nice widows mixed in here and there. The crab fishing, on the other hand wasn’t so hot. We moved our pots further south to try to avoid getting…

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…
