Keoni Tamayo – Deck Hand Extraordinaire
Today was by far the best day we’ve had on the ocean. The water was glass like with no ground swell. A perfect day for even those who are allergic to the motion of the ocean
. With a full boat we headed out, once again, to the Island of Montague. We dropped anchor at 9:45am and sat at our first spot hoping for some larger halibut. The tide, however, was not in our favor with very little water moving. The halibut bite did not turn on for us but were able to pull up about 9 Yellow eye rockfish at our first spot. After an hour we pulled anchor and made way towards our new destination at a bit shallower area with more current. Although a slow pick, we were able to pull a few nice fish off this spot; the largest weighing in around 90lbs. After a two hour soak, we decided it was time to fill the boat at a spot with a larger density of fish. After an 11 mile cruise we dropped down around 180ft and limited the boat in less than an hour and a half
. We had a great group of people who were enthusiastic about fishing and made my day. Our next trip will be this Sunday as we still have a few seats, though they are filling up quick so make your reservation
soon. Fish On!
