Fished with Jim, Connor, Patrick, and Carter yesterday for sharks. We had ten releases. Most of the sharks were duskys with a few browns mixed in. The fish of the day was a sixty pound dusky. Great conditions!
Fished with Mike and family yesterday morning. It was Mike's birthday and he wanted to catch a bunch of fluke in the bay so we did. We had constant action all morning. The fish of the day was a nice keeper fluke for Mike. The weather has been great and the fish have been biting.
Fished today with Brett, Bob, and crew in the ocean for sharks. We started off strong and had bites right away. We had over twelve dusky sharks today up to sixty pounds. The bite was great. Tons of fun. By the way, that shark is not as close to him in the picture as it looks!!!
Fished today with Charlie, Mike, and Marisol. We fluked fished in the bay and caught a bunch of shorts. We moved out into the ocean and caught the fish of the trip. Mike came through again with a beautiful 4 1/2 pound fluke. He also had a double header fluke earlier in the day in the bay.
Fished with Glen, Adam, Michele, and Colleen yesterday. We fished for fluke in the bay. The action has been great and we released close to thirty fish in four hours. The fish of the day was a beautiful 4 1/2 pound fluke that was about 23".
Fished with Jim and Mimi yesterday. We went to catch a bunch of sharks on the Flyrod and we did! We caught and released ten dusky sharks on the fly. The biggest was a little over fifty pounds. We also pulled the hook on another shark near the boat. Great ten weight fishing. Beginner to expert fly fishermen will enjoy this fishing. It's a great way to brush up on your big fish fighting skills. Bring a reel with a good drag....
Fished Monday morning with Joe and family. We went sharking in the ocean. We had two spinner sharks, several dusky sharks, and one brown shark. The biggest dusky was close to sixty pounds. Shark fishing usually lasts until the end of August.
Dad, Patty, Ryan, and I headed out for a bit to catch a striper. We did. We did not have much time, so we caught one and headed back home. They are there to be caught on the fly and on the spinning rod.
Today I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I was asked to transport the Stanley Cup by John and Stacy Stevens to LA Kings player and Stanley Cup MVP Justin Williams by boat. Yes that is the real Stanley Cup. What an amazing experience. More pictures and post to follow.
