2020 Recap

2020 has come an end an what a wild ride it was! There were many ups and downs, probably more downs given the circumstances, but we here at J&M are extremely grateful to still be in business and going strong. This wouldn’t be possible with out the continued love and support all of you have…

1-18-21 Dabs & Crabs “Demerits for the Weather Man!”

Another demerit will be assigned to the personnel involved in the prediction of the marine weather. The forecast for today was brutal. According to the forecast we were meant to have 40 knots of wind today. I went so far as to tell our anglers that if it got too rough we were going to…

1-17-21 Dabs & Crabs “Unbelievable, Right?”

Let’s get this blog thing on track. I didn’t realize how many anglers read my blog and how many trips I didn’t post a blog for. Sometimes as a Captain you get busy, you get side tracked or you see something shiny and totally go off the rails. Anywho, my apologies to anyone who has…

1-8-21 Crabs & Dabs “No Winds & Lazy Swells”

Today started off with decent weather and 4 crab per angler. After running all the gear we set out to catch some flat fish. The weather got even nicer. No wind and a large, very lazy swell. Everyone went home with many sand dabs and a couple of decent sole came over the rails. Thanks…

1-7-21 Dabs & Crabs “Days Like Today”

Today was another great day to be a fisherman. Kevin and I had a light group, only 8 anglers. The weather was sloppy, choppy in the morning, but it backed off nicely and became a beautiful sunny day. We encountered several groups of Gray whales that warranted taking a look. They passed right by us…

1-1-21 Sand Dab/Crab Year Opener

We had a great time opening up the new year with crab and sand dab combo. We gathered up as many Sandabs as anybody could possibly want, got a nice halibut, and ended up with eight crab per angler. Not a bad way to start the new year I must say. Come on out and…

12-26-20 “Last week of Rockfish for 2020”

Hey everyone, I hope you all had an awesome Christmas! The day after Christmas is always a popular day to get out on the water. Lots of fishing rods and reels that Santa passed out need to be broken in. The crab fishing today was okay. We ended up with 25 crab for 18 anglers.…

12-13-20 Crab Combo “Difficult Lemon Difficult”

Well, you always hope that everything goes easy peasy lemon squeezey. Today was difficult difficult lemon difficult. Kevin and I took out 20 anglers for a combo trip today on the Chubasco. The weather started out great as we were grinding away at the crab pots. After we ran our pots, we were still short…

Fri 12/11/20 Crab Combo

Another quiet day for sea creatures. We ended the day with 50 rockfish, 3 lingcod and 2 Dungeness crab per person for 9 anglers. Capt Rod  

12/6/20 Crab Combo “Live life to it’s fullest”

Today was a quiet day on the water. We had good weather, unfortunately the crab and rockfish were off somewhere enjoying it. Crab was 2 per person and rock fish were 3 per person. Amara Lee, Captain Rod’s granddaughter, caught the most at 6. Hopefully the crab will fill the traps and we get to…

11-29-20 Crab Combo “Chitin Colliding with Chitin”

 I love it when a plan comes together. Today was a beautiful day with a bounty of fish and crab. Fishing started slow for our 9 anglers but it came around for a steady trickle of fish coming into the boat. We limited out on Rockfish (couple of big Verms and Canaries) around noon and…
