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…

9-18-20 Am Rockfish “Blue, Blue, Blue!”

Blue! Blue, blue, blue and blue! Finally after weeks of smoke and fog choking out the sun, the sun broke through. The ocean and clouds and skies were beautiful. 16 Anglers and Deckhand Andrew had a good time on the water today. I started the day with ambitions of Point Sur, but after checking the…

9-15-20 Am Rockfish “Big bait, big water, big fish”

What a day we had today. Set out with 10 anglers, 1 ride along and Deckhand Daniel for Rockfish. Since the weather was so good and it was a light load, I decided today was a good day for live bait Rockfish. The bait didn’t come easy today like it has been. We fished bait…

9-14-20 Halibut “Five dollar foot long”

Well, no Halibut today, but we smashed big slob Rockfish in shallow water. Our 6 anglers caught plenty of perfect squid and the biggest sardine I’ve ever seen. No joke, that Sardine was 12 inches! Que five dollar foot long song. After several drifts with no Halibut, we let the boat drift over the rocks.…

9-13-20 Pm Rockfish “Big Smiles & Sore Arms”

Another afternoon fishing trip with great weather and great fishing. The limits came easy for our anglers as the Blue Rockfish were up and hungry. We managed to pull a couple stray monster Vermillions that made for some big smiles and sore arms. Trusty Deckhand Alfredo was hustling on deck again keeping everyone fishing without…

9-13-20 Am Rockfish “Glorious Flurries”

Where to begin? I suppose we’ll start with the weather as usual. Our streak of absolutely glorious weather continues. The ever expansive Pacific Ocean looked like a smoky, hazy lake today. We hit several areas for Rockfish this morning ranging from the shallower waters of around 80 feet (which produced a beautiful Tree fish) to…

9-12-20 Am Rockfish “Lings knot shakers”

This morning on the New Horizon with 18 anglers and Deckhand Daniel, we set out in the haze in search of rockfish. The sea was calm and the current was strong. We were getting pulled north at almost a full knot. I decided to head to the deep water outside of Cypress point hoping for…

9-11-20 Am & Pm Rock cod “Shake and Bake”

This mornings rock fish trip started out slow and foggy as Smokey.  With a little persistence and some moving around we found some hungry fish. The fog and smoke remained. We ended up with limits of rock fish for 21 passengers. We departed our afternoon trip at 3 pm, fog and smoke still intact. The…

9-8-20 Am Rockfish “Slow and Steady”

Windy and cold. Wound up catching limits of some nice yellowtail with some blues and olives mixed in. A bit of a slow bite but we got em. Looking forward to the nicer weather expected for the rest of the week.

9-5-20 Pm Rockfish “Fun in the Shallows”

Afternoon fishing! Get em as quick as you can. Laid into a school of blues and yellows (blue rockfish and yellowtail rockfish) with a few olives and gophers mixed in. Fished in the shallows for the first time in a long time. I forgot how fun that is. Great people and a great trip. Captain JJ…
