Hey anglers: Today we had some pretty decent fishing for the amount of time that we had to fish kelps. The yellowtail were nice-sized and ranged up to 25lbs. We had 61 of the tag-able yellows and 4 dorado. There was a good chance to catch a few fish off of the right kelp. Fishing the right line size was important today. 30lb and up was needed to keep those yellows out of the kelp and be able to bring the fish up to the boat. We called the trip over in the early afternoon unfortunately, due to the fact that we were a good distance from home. Hope to see you on the water soon and good angling! Capt Aaron p.s. Thank you to Izorline pro-staffers Wendy Tochihara and Bob Horton for their support of this trip. See you next year!
Hey anglers, Well we had a little slower day on the water compared to yesterday. Today’s catch was 22 albies, four bluefin, two yellowtail, and one dorado. We are moving out of this area this afternoon, hoping to catch a few more this afternoon before we go for more yellowtail and dorado on kelp patties tomorrow. We are hoping to have a great last day before we have to head home. The ocean was full of life though. We saw fish that just didn’t seem interested in the food we had for them, numerous whales, several pods of common dolphin, lots of bait balls and lots of birds. Our weather is still nice–less than 15 knots of wind (which is around 17 mph for those wondering). Good angling and hope to see ya on the water, Capt Aaron
Hey anglers, Today we went further offshore looking for some sort of tuna. We headed west of the area we were in yesterday, out in deep water. We saw lots of good conditions but unfortunately we did not see any tuna. We caught six yellowtail for the day. The weather is still great and the forecast looks good for the next week. Capt Kevin is running the next trip, so we’ll get some reports from him. Capt Art
Hey anglers, Excellent fishing today on yellowtail and dorado! All were caught on kelp patties. The majority were caught on flylined sardines, with a few caught on yo-yo jigs. Everyone had a productive day and worked really well together. That helps minimize the tangles! We have great group of guys from Washington and they had a really great day. Looking forward to tomorrow, Capt Art
Hey anglers, We had a slow day on our first day of a 4-day trip. We caught around 40 mixed fish, mostly yellowtail with a few dorado. Things changed a little today. There weren’t as many kelps with fish today as there has been the past few days. We had high hopes for today with the reports from the past two days. The weather is great and we’ll do a little catching up tomorrow. Conditions are good, with almost 70-degree blue water. More tomorrow, Capt Art
Hey anglers, We started our day offshore looking for dorado on kelp paddies. We ran across two good size kelps that had a mix of dorado and yellowtail. Everyone had a good time catching 8-15 pound dorado and the yellowtail were 15- 25 pounds. We released all the yellowtail that were less than 15 pounds. Another great day on the ocean with no wind and calm seas! We fished until just after lunch and then called it a trip. And what a great trip–we caught fish on the four days we fished which is unusual. What really made the trip was the weather which was calm the whole time. It doesn’t get any better than that. Captain Aaron is taking the next trip out so hopefully he will have good fishing as well. More next trip, Capt Art
Hey anglers, We had another good day of fishing at Cedros Island. Unfortunately it didn’t last as long today as it did yesterday. The good thing is the grade of the fish is the same–25- 40 pounds. They are beautiful fish and lots of fun to catch. All the same methods are working today. The weather was fantastic with sunny skies and calm seas. We are headed north to try our luck on kelp paddies for dorado. More tomorrow, Capt Art
