Bait fishing for larger size hook bait has been tuff lately to say the least! With no lack of effort, the Bounty brought in a beautiful load of six inch sardines to the San Pedro barge this morning. There is also mixed size anchovies. Great chum with some hook bait mixed in. If all goes well, we will be able to get a load for Newport in the near future.
Regardless of what type of trip you are going on these days, I highly recommend taking the lighter tackle, smaller hooks, and light pinch on sinkers or small rubber cores in case you're not able to get larger bait. The majority of fish being caught these days are perfectly catchable on fifteen to twenty pound line and it increases your odds on getting a bite on the smaller bait.....as well a better fight and challenge. One more little tip that will give you an advantage when limited to small bait......we have been using the Shimano Sniper jig with great success. It has the weight to throw it far, fish on the slide or straight up in down for all the local species that are biting lately.
Take advantage of the great local fishing we're having this season and good luck.....hopefully this lasts for a while!!

Capt Justin checked in from the Excel, as we were headed south on what we thought was a travel day, we stumbled on a kelp that was loaded. We got some nice grade Yellowtail and smaller grade Yellowfin, it was like aquarium fishing as we could watch all the tuna swimming around. The were hitting poppers, surface jigs, it was fun for everyone. We finally made it to the ridge for some really good Yellowtail that were hitting the yoyo jigs Salas 6x in scrambled egg and blue/white best. We will look for more tuna on the way home, we will check in again tomorrow.
Yesterday was a fun day on the Indy. The yellowtail bite was very good for 20 to 30 lb. fish, half caught on salas 6 x yo yo and then the sardines and surface plugs. The wahoo showed in the afternoon and we had a few bingos on them, good grade fish as well. Capt Jimmy's bombs were the hot ticket and marauders. We also found some big kelps that were vacant at present, but might be loaded in a few weeks or so. Throw in a couple of marlin we released and that was our day. Everyone got to pull and yank lots today with great weather for all. We hope there is more of this around for tomorrow. Sea ya then, Jeff and the Indy crew
This was a day that I wish everyone who shares the passion for long range style offshore fishing was here for. It was that good. A memorable outing producing perfect quantity and quality; what an opportunity. So much so that we are now satisfied to leave the freshening wind and building seas behind in favor of variety and preferred fishing conditions - we hope.
Weather permitting we'll have the chance to do a little southern offshore prospecting in advance of our ultimate destination. Some colorful leapers would do wonders for contrast in our burgeoning primary RSW tank; a timid goal in light of the precedent set. But we must live with the result of our extraordinary good fortune the remainder of this run. Trust that no one's feelings are damaged by this consequence. The show goes on.
The camera took a timeout today as action at the rail demanded full attention. Fortunately I snapped a few "extry's" during the first couple of days to make up for the deficit. Long time Royal Star veteran Brett Rapazo saw it all come together when this corpulent, eighty five pound class bluefin came over the rail yesterday. "Livin' the dream"; one that is our present reality.
I don't think anything abnormal happened today during our turn around. Well, Sysco was late so we left for the fuel dock before that came aboard so, just another turn around day is what I'm trying to say. We loaded the Paul Hess group, our Hess homies and we were out. I think things went OK at the bait receivers. We'll find out. We fished this afternoon. It's the year of departure fish days. We scratched 16 nice grade tuna. We're traveling now and I'm on watch. It's almost 3:00 am on the 22nd and I believe we're in American waters. I'm thinking about it and I don't think I've ever fished in American waters in the beginning of a 5 day trip which is what we're on.
The weather this afternoon was rolly and choppy. The weather now is pretty nice but I think it's supposed to be bad the next couple of days. Windy, choppy, rolly oh my.
Adam checking in the The Eclipse out of Seaforth Landing on the 1st day of a 2 day trip. Excellent blue fin tuna fishing with some eating the popper, trolling gear, and iron. An Interesting day with fish up to 100 pounds, Adam is live below to tell you all about it.
