Where’s the fish?

May 28th, 2011 — The weather thinks it’s March, maybe the fish do too. Everything else looks good. The water temp is good, there’s lots of bait, and the water color is what we like to see. So why no fish? That’s the question that I try to solve everyday. Today we fished southwest 4 to 5 miles out in 350 to 400 feet of water. Like I say, the ocean looks fishy. We landed one fish for 6 anglers weighing in at 16 pounds caught by long time customer Jim Sapp out of Gridley Ca. Jim was fishing on a downrigger at 40 feet with a chrome/brass flasher with a J-71 hoochie over a cut anchovy. We lost a couple of keepers and had a lot of action with bites but I think they were little fish (undersized). We did release one small king. Ocean was calm with some rain showers off and on. Looks like we might have some wind coming tomorrow. Fish-On!
