Trip Report

Trip #25 (7-day) Oct 13-20 (Day 5)

Hello anglers,

We started our fishing day on the coast for yellowtail without much success. So we travelled offshore to look for kelp patties and dorado. We found warm blue water and plenty of large kelp paddies. Not many had fish associated with them. But we managed to find a few that had a few good-size dorado on them. I think everyone got to keep a nice-size dorado today, including Anne L.  Check out the recommended surface irons here!

We are headed home tonight and arriving back to the dock on Saturday morning. Here is Anne Lahue and crewman Ryan with a beautiful dorado from one of the kelp patties this afternoon.

Chef Dan shared his Sesame Chili Marinade recipe for fresh Searcher-caught fish. Angler tried and tested!
