12 fish over the 200 mark today. What an incredible couple of days, Things really changed for us. Good bait fishing led to good cow fishing ....


We have a handful of nice fish this morning. Bait making went very good last night and we were able to top off on perfect size mackeral.

11 fish over 200 and
1 fish over 300 for the afternoon!

Pretty incredible.
We are headed for bait and have another day tomorrow to fish.

Wow what a surprise that was!

Another day with poor conditions and windy. Less sign today and very tough to fish . We are making a move inside to finish up the trip we have two days left and hoping for the best. Travel day tomorrow

LA James with a nice fish .

We desperately need to get some baits for the kite .The little sardines were frustrating to use . Hopefully we can get some bigger bait tonight


We had better action today with a few nice fish mixed in. The prospect looked good and hopefully things are on the upswing.

With the good conditions we still struggled to get something going and picked off another half a dozen fish over a long period of time then took off for the inside. We will arrive after daylight and get started.
We had the conditions we were hoping for and picked off a handful of decent fish up to 170 pounds this morning. Conditions remain great just no fish around right now. The sharks were bad all morning until the fish briefly moved in and then backed off for a little bit.

Conditions were poor all afternoon here today. We had some current for about an hour this morning and then current for half an hour this evening. Picked off a dozen decent fish in the short time we had conditions. We are going to try it again tomorrow and see if there is current.

Good morning folks. We have had windy conditions most of the way down. We are starting out at the Bank as the weather looks good after tomorrow.
Hopefully we find good sign of fish and will be arriving first thing tomorrow morning
