    wave heights and winds are gusting up to 27 out of the east. Supposed to drop out later tonite but I dont like the chances of the ocean calming down much for us tomorrow. swell is gonna stay pretty big. .so we are gonna cancel Wednesdays trip. Thursday and Friday look good with hard west winds so wait till then to come down. Thursday is the next nice day to fish. See you then.

    but that did not slow them down and we had good fishing throughout most of the day with guys catching a limit early on in the morning. most of the guys ended up doing well that fished light today,meaning lighter leader. 30lb. leader and less was key to doing well. it has been of late. so overall pretty decent I thought. tough on the new comers with the seas and quick current but over a good chew. pics. .

    11-29-15 Nice day out there again today,plenty of breeze to keep us tight on anchors today but basically flat calm for the most with a bit of a small ground swell left over from yesterday. Fishing was good for some,some guys had a limit of blackfish ,some had 3,4 or 5 again but more people did not do anything and had a tough day than I would have liked to see,we had a ripping tide out of the north and it made it tough on some of the guys.

    FIsh were chewing again for the most part. Sometimes some dull moments or them just picking softly at the baits but slowly we caught some fish. I think Gino is gonna win the pool with a nice big male fish about 9lbs. Some other quality here and there in the 6-7lb.

    11-27-15 Nice day overall with decent ocean conditions and for the most part I though the fish were chewing. Guys had a limit of keeper blackfish,,some had 2,4,or some 5 keepers,,some nice fish in the 7-9lb. range and of course some people didnt do well but or just couldnt get a bite but overall I saw a spread of fish around the boat.

    11-25-15 Some great weather again today,flat calm light winds. Fishing was good for some of the guys today. Some had a limit plus of nice quality fish up to 8lbs. Other had 3,4or 5,and some didnt do much at all. .Mixed bag of different catches but the fish were there and some were just dialed in today and caught em. White crabs worked best again today along with ligher leaders around 30lb.

    Stayed that way all day,,,fish were jumping on the baits early on as soon as we started this morning. Some guys were on the board early on with a few keepers each but the bite did not stay with us. we just kinda picked at the fish the rest of the day. .I thought they were not chewing that good . they wanted the white crabs for sure,we did catch some on greens but the whites outfished them for overall. We did catch fish despite my complaining,,some guys had there limit of blackfish,and some had the usual 3,4,or 5 but I thought the bite was slow overall,,or maybe I was spoiled from yesterday,not sure. Either way it was really nice and we caught fish just not as good as I would have liked or maybe seen more people catch today that didnt. My pics got screwed up so only have a couple.

    11-23-15 Very windy today,flat calm though with the west wind. Missed a good one today,they bit there heads off and fishing was very good. Other maxed out easily and those who were not feeling it went home with fish as well. .Great day I thought,,tomorrow looks really with more west winds.

    11-21-15 We had an all-star cast show up to get into some blackfish today,,some familiar faces and some new ones,,And at the end of the some caught pretty well,,some did fair,and some did not do much at all. The fish were there and they were chewing for the most part. The bow and the stern did the best and had good life most of the day but most there were really working it. We missed all our big fish today,,some of them they just could not stop and they shaved em off. .Pool fish was about 7lbs and worth 815 bucks!!Like I said some guys didnt do good today but overall we caught quite a few fish. I was happy with it for the most part. Look forward to tomorrow already. See ya for cofffee. Looks good for tomorrow weather wise.
