We caught some salmon this morning. The ocean was flat and there is lots of bait and birds working. We went straight out to about 330 ft of water. Had lots of action. We released a few silvers and had some shorts but we ended up with 8 fish to 30lbs. Picture (left) Pete Dittmer from Forest Hill with a 30 and a 16 pound kings!

Fish-On!

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

June 19th, 2013–Rockfishing down south again. The salmon(brown) water moved in all the way to the beach. The rockfish don’t like to bite in the brown water typically. Today was not as good as yesterday, but with a little more work, we ended up with nice bags of fish. We had several nice reds and some big lings too. Biggest ling was 17lb 6oz caught by Briana Dutcher from Lake County. Her sister, Lindsey, also got a nice one weighing in at 13 lbs. Their family of 5 were 2 fish shy of limits of rockfish and they had 5 lings. Nice job! We fished just north of Pt. Cabrillio Lighthouse in about 80 ft of water. Still nice weather. Fish-On!

Salmon are here!!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

6/17/13–No picture to show off with but let me tell you, there were some salmon caught today. I took the day off to do some maintenance on the boat. But yesterday afternoon Kevin on the F/V Ambush went out in the afternoon and came back early with limits for 4 customers. He said the brown water had moved in along with lots of bait and birds. He was right! This morning I started hearing reports and I liked what I was hearing. So this evening I had to take my family out and see if we could get a taste of the action. It was happening alright. Nice brown water, birds all over the place pounding the water. We even saw several fish jump clean out of the water. I hooked the first fish on my rod. I was fishing with a green spoon down 18 ft on the downrigger. Nice fish. It took almost 20 minutes to get it in. Of coarse I was fishing with 15 lb test line on a G-Loomis bait casting rod. What a blast. That fish weighed in at 26.5 lbs. We also had 2 other fish on at the same time. Unfortunately they came off. But not much longer and I had another fish on my rod. It was smaller but still a nice fish. My youngest son, Garrett, ended up landing one on my rod and it topped my fish by 1/2 pound. We ended up with a total of 5 fish. Guess what’s for dinner at my house! We were fishing straight out in 330 ft of water. On top of all of that, the ocean was flat and no wind! Good day to be on the water! Lets hope they stick around for awhile. From the looks of the water, I think they will. Fish-On!!

Limits of Lingcod!!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

June 16, 2013–Telstar* went down south below Pt. Cabrillio lighthouse looking for some hungry rockfish and lingcod. We found just that. We didn’t get limits of rockfish but I think we had 8 or 9 fish average for 20 anglers. The real story was the lingcod. We ended up with limits (40) of lingcod!! I think the only reason we didn’t have limits of rockfish was because we couldn’t keep the lings off our hooks. Nice bags of fish. Biggest ling was about 12 lbs. caught by Ted Peterson out of Potter Valley. Fish-On!

6/14/13 Salmon report

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Today was the first day we got out all the week because of the winds. The ocean was a bit choppy, but the winds stayed offshore. After several days of wind, the ocean is all mixed up. I was hoping it was going to bring some fish in. Well, if it did, they are not hungry. We hooked into this nice 21 lb fish early in the trip. Susan Shuster from Lassen County did a great job playing this fish. We were fishing north about 5 miles in 190 ft of water. We ended having another fish on towards the end of the trip but it got away. It was a nice fish too. That was the extent of our action today. One of these days, we’re going to have some hot action. Tomorrow just might be the day. Fish-On!

Save

6/1/13 report– Not too many boats out today. The forecast was not for the timid. I told my customers this morning that the best case scenario is that it is going to be rough. I had a group of 10 from Willits, and they have been fishing with me several times and I knew if they said they could handle it that they could. So off we went to at least see what the conditions were like. After getting out there, we decided that it was fishable. We were 4 miles north in 250 ft of water. Not too soon after, we hooked up on one of our bow rods. One thing led to another and we ended up with 8 salmon. Biggest one weighing in at 20.5 lbs. caught by Jeff Kroppmann from Willits. We only lost a couple of salmon which is great considering the conditions.
   Pic; from left to right– Kevin Crook/Willits-17.5 & 16 lb, Jeff Kroppmann/Willits-20.5 lb, Bob Ruddock/Lake County, Steve Ford/Willits, Jacob Hood/Willits, and Jim Barrett/Ukiah. Great job guys!!

I just had a couple of anglers today so we went right out by the buoy and tried for some salmon. The water conditions look the best they have in awhile. Lots of bait showing on the meter and good temperature. We ended up with just 1 nice salmon but we had fun looking for more. My nephew Richard (captain of the Trek 2) had a little bit better luck. I think he ended up with 4 fish. We were fishing right by each other the whole time. Maybe we’ll start to see some fish show up here. Hope so. Fish-on  Picture; Roswell and Mary Pund out of Encinitas, Ca. showing off their 13 pound king salmon.
