Dear anglers:

We are fishing offshore today and making our way around some kelp paddies. We’ve caught some nice yellowtail and dorado, but are still looking for that magical kelp!

We have all afternoon wish us luck. Photo shows father-son: Ryan and Nolan Herzog.

We finished up this evening with some yellowfin tuna, and it was a real nice way to finish the trip! We want to say “thank you” to the Herzog Electric group. And tight lines to all.
