6/16-17/14 — Yellowfins, Bluefins & Tilefish — Canyons Keep Producing!!

Our Monday-Tuesday overnighter saw great fishing overall!!  We boated 10 yellowfins between 45-55 pounds and released 7 bluefins.  The tilefishing was off the charts!  We landed blueline tilefish to 17 pounds and golden tiles to 40 pounds!


6/14/14 — Stripers — That’s a wrap!

We had our last striper trip of the spring and hate to report that it was horribly slow.  No fish for us today.  I’d say that’s a wrap.

The spring season was hit or miss outside of two weeks in May when the trolling was on fire.

6/12/14 — Nearshore Sharking — Thresher in the Boat!!

Had an inshore sharking trip today and went 1 for 3 on thresher sharks!  This is one of the most underrated fisheries there is in my opinion.  Big game sharking less than a half hour from the dock!!


6/10-11/14 — Bigeyes, Bluefins, Yellowfins!!

Just got cleaned up from last night’s overnighter and have plenty to report!

We caught 10 yellowfins (6 released), 6 Bluefin (4 released), and 2 bigeyes!  The bluefins we kept were 45″ and our “over fish” was 180 pounds!  The bigeyes were both 120-130 pounds!


6/7-8/14 — Early Season Split-Charter Comes Together — Bigeyes!!!

We had our first split-charter of the season June 7th into June 8th and the fishing was fantastic!  We started off by putting 21 tilefish in the boat then went on the troll for tuna.

Managed to put a 30 pound yellowfin in the boat before dark and then set up for sharks at night.

We had blue sharks swimming around the boat all night; the guys fought and released 9 of them before they had had enough.

On the troll in the morning we landed 2 Bluefin tuna, 12 yellowfin tuna and our first two bigeye tuna of the season.

Pictured below is Teddy with his first tuna and one of the tiles he cranked up manually.  The group is also pictured with our 200+ pound bigeye!
