John here with a quick offshore report.
Just came off our Charkbait/Red Rooster III
Annual 2012 8 day.
We started offshore the first day of the trip to warm-up on some nice 15-25lbs (YFT) yellowfin tuna.
We continued down headed for the ridge.
Skipper JOE CRISCI came on the loud speaker
"I see some dorado jumping up ahead" and as we approched there was a dead sea turtle floating on the surface loaded with dorado.
Well it was a wide open dorado bite and we put on limits of dorado up to 25lbs and headed on our way.
We arrived at the ridge with off color water we set out the trollers looking for wahoo (skinnies)we managed to put a couple on the boat. With bad conditions on the ridge skipper Joe moved on to Mag Bay to the 38 spot.
We put out the kite and ended up boating some nice YFT up to 65+ lbs and a few skinnies and folks fishing for bottom grabbers boated some grouper as well.
I fished the bow with a popper on our new Ahi Assasin 8ft poopin rod and caught 5 up to 30lbs on that rig. What a blast watching the tuna blow-up on the popper.
Time to head back up the line to San Pablo Bay
were the Royal polaris had good fishing for wahoo. We put out the mauraders and hook-up right away on the skinnies up to 55lbs.
After dinner we are on our way to Cedros to spend the night.
Conditions didn't look good at Cedros so we went up to Bonitas Island for a nice 20lb to 30lb yollowtail on droper-loop rigs and captured about 30 of those. We hooked a lot more but the seals had there share for lunch.
Time to head home one more stop for some school size tuna and we just ran out of time.
After the last dinner we hit the sack
We would be home to San Deigo by morning.
Special thanks to Red Rooster III and Crew.
