Half day with Bob and Larry Two anglers with a lot of water under their feet. And Zack, Larry’s son- in law, Who has never fished in the ocean before buts gets the Black Bass back home.

Fishing was on the slow side, we caught a few fish early, and saw a nice 45Lb SeaBass. but it wasn’t going to happen where we were, so we went to the inside stuff and started catching some fish. No real pattern just a lot of casting to dark spots and stringers .
Zack was a stick, picked it right up, nice having a guy who can swing and wind. He got big fish of the day on his last cast.

Cats Alive

November 18, 2011


Fished a trip to Cat today Sandy had never fished there and the weather was so nice we changed the trip from local to the Island.
The fish started bitting under the light pretty good and around the back to just below Silver Canyon. Big Bass went about 4# on a 3/8 War 3in Pearl combo. Lots of legal barracuda in shallow from Orange rocks up, pretty fun on the iron.

In the afternoon we finished up in tight above Seal Rocks, and outside us a BIG spot of HUGE fish popped up. We got on em quick but were only able to get one cast off, a big flash behind the jig and a few HUGE backs were all we saw before they sunk out. If I wasn’t so worried about the grief I’d get I would say they could have been BFT? But were more likely BIG Yellows.

Heading South

October 27, 2011

Left Newport at 9;00 am stopped in SD for a quick splash and go 400 gal. and made it to Cedros at 8:00 am This boat is insane ReelTime flies and PK is not afraid to burn some fuel. First cast on the swimbait field testing the new Torque 12. We kept 3 and shook off another 6 Ride down was nice with just a little tail wind and swell. Heading in to Turtle for fuel then down to the ridge sounds like there is a nice pile up in front of the bay. Check in with you later. Decker

Finally got to fish out front today after making bait the last two days for our Mag Bay trip next week.
Fished below the harbor for a decent pick on the smaller bass but was not happy about the sangs for my client who was fishing the fly rod so we ran up top.
Fishing on the reef and pipe was really fun for some very nice fish on the plastic, I talked to Chris on the Freelance and they were doing good on Squid strips with a 3/8 slider lots of shorts for them we had more legals than shorts.
Water was 62 and clean fun fishing.

Its been a while since the island has been open. Elite Agents rolled over in three rigs. Flat crossing and many bass made for a successful mission.

SWBA 2011

October 10, 2011

Tracy and I fished our last event of the year this weekend. We had a good morning outside and a poor afternoon in the bay. Fishing was tough for most teams and we were lucky to find a few that did bite.
We finished the Season in 3rd place overall out of 90 that started the season. Thank you for all your support this year. Decker
