Sat 10-24-20 Am/Pm 4hr Rock cod “Early bite/late bite”

Good day everyone. Today on the New Horizon we ran 2 four hour rock fish trips. We started the morning with a steady bite with good quality fish, the bite slowed down and ended up with a total of 123 fish for 18 anglers. The second trip started slow and I moved around quite a…

10-17-20 Am Cod “Windless but not fishless”

This morning we took advantage of the of shore winds. The ocean was calm and visibility for miles. We made the 2+ hour ride to Pt. Sur. We had whales and dolphins on the way down and the ride home. Fishing was excellent. Total count was 210 quality rockfish and a nice ling cod. Andrew…

10-16-20 Am 4hr Cod “Peculiar weather”

Today was kind of an unusual day. Deckhand Reed and I set off with 14 anglers looking for some rockfish on our 4 hour morning trip. The weather was a little peculiar as we had wind coming from the north and current swirling around outside the point. Every time we got some fish to bite…

10-9-20 Half day Cod “Chewing the fat”

Another great 4 hour Rockfish trip today. Deckhand Reed and I got to go out fishing with 5 anglers and nailed the fish again. Blues, Olives, a few Coppers, 2 Tree fish and 5 nice Vermillions. The weather was fantastic again and everyone was having a blast. I was able to get out on deck…

10-8-20 Am Rock cod “Weather was beautiful & the fish were biting”

Today was a pretty mellow afternoon trip for Andrew and I. We set out with a very light load of only 4 anglers. The weather was beautiful and the fish were biting. We ended up spending our time bottom fishing which produced a ton of Starry rockfish. Occasionally we would also throw in a couple…

10-2-20 “Sleep in, Catch some fish, get done at noon”

 Today was our premier half day morning Rockfish trip and it went great. Deckhand Alfredo and 12 anglers on deck landed 116 fish! Nice Yellowtails, Olives, fat Blues and a spattering of Gophers and Starry Rockfish. Half of the fishers were young kids out for their first boat trip and they did awesome. I’m very…

9-27-20 “Limits for Their Wounded Soldiers”

The swell is still up from yesterday’s storm but it looks like it’s starting to subside already. The residual swell made for hard work on the fishing grounds though. Deckhand Kevin is finally back from Texas after losing his home from the Carmel valley fires. It’s great to have him back out with us working…

9-25-20 Pm Rockfish “Fish, Retreat, Repeat”

We spent our entire morning trip waiting for the bad weather that was forecasted to show up and it finally did. Around 2:30 the wind started cranking up which made for some rough stuff. We want everyone to have a good time, so I called the shop and let everyone know that the weather was…

9-25-20 Am Rockfish “Excellent fish on a slow pick”

Today was a pretty good day for us. Deckhand Daniel and I set off with 6 anglers for Rockfish. The weather was a chief concern as the forecast was calling for some serious weather later in the day, but it was holding pretty good locally. We fished whole squid which produced excellent fish on a…

9-19-20 Pm Rock cod “Elusive Rockfish”

We set out on our second trip to find less than ideal sea conditions. The fish weren’t hungry. We moved around the Pacific Grove water front trying to find better conditions and hungrier fish. No such luck. The decision was made to go into the middle of the bay to find find the elusive rock…

9-19-20 Am Rockfish “In the Books”

Trip number one in the books with limits of rock fish and 3 lingcod. The fish were taking their sweet time but we got the job done. Now onto trip number two. Results to come this evening. Stay Tuned, Capt. Rod

9-18-20 Pm Rockfish “One, Two, Tree-fish”

 This afternoon Deckhand Alfredo, trainee Caila and I set off with 15 anglers for Rockfish. The weather was just a little chunky but not bad. We hit the shallow water and really nailed the Blues and Yellows. One of the guys fishing right outside my door caught a great Tree fish. I told him that…
