Indian Rock Fishing Trip

Last Sunday we had our last trip of the year. Skipper Chris Randal took us the the finger bank area in Mexico for limits of rock fish. We had talked about fishing farther offshore in deeper water, but Chris said he knew an area closer to shore that had lots of hungry fish. It was one of our best trips of the year. Easy limits on quality rock fish, including nice size reds.

Tomorrow I have to get everything ready for my East Cape trip on Thursday.

I'll get all the camera gear together and Larry will pack all my fishing tackle. I'll try to send you reports from Mexico.

Trout Fishing Trip

Just got back from three days of fishing up in the Bishop CA area. Fishing the first day was a little slow, but the next two days were awesome. The float trip down the Owens River is something everyone should try, I caught all of my fish on the river on Gulp eggs and PowerBait worms. The best color was white, I'm not sure why, but white eggs with a white worm was by far the best bait to use. The Gulp and Power Bait out fished everyone in our group. I can't wait to get back up there.

Surf Fishing

Last Sunday Larry and I fished in a surf fishing event for a fishing club we belong to. We started out fishing up by Ventura but the water was dirty so we worked our way south. The fishing was slow but at Zuma beach we found nice clear water and II was able to land four perch using Gulp for bait. I ended up winning the event. It wasn't a huge fish, but large enough to win on this day. For those of you who want to go fishing and not spend a lot of money, you should try surf fishing it's a lot of fun!

Late Season Lobster Fishing

I'm one of those guys who has never had much luck at lobster fishing, that was until I went out one night with Ben Hong of Promar. Ben took me out the first week of March to a spot he likes in the Santa Monica Bay. We were only out for about two hours, but we landed over 12 lobsters and seven of them were legal, plus a bunch of crabs. The only problem we had that night were the seals. The seals took our baits several times out of our nets. Other than that it was a perfect trip. Make sure you watch this show, it'll be a good one.

First Fish!

Last week i took my godson, his wife and son out fishing. The goal was to get his son his first ocean fish. We weather was good so we took my bay boat out toward the break wall and fished with cut bait. Christopher had a great day. In two hours of fishing we landed sand bass, perch and a few tomcod too. You all know I enjoy fishing and i like do all the kids work that I do with my youth foundation, but when it's someone in your family taking their kids out to get their first fish the thrill was ten fold. Christopher caught his first fish at our youth foundation event last November at El Dorado park in Long Beach. This kid is hooked on fishing for sure.

Chollas Lake Free Kids Fishing Event

This past weekend I drove to San Diego to attend a free kids fishing event hosted by Star Pal, also there was the CA Dept of Fish & Game with their Fishing in the City program. The weather was very wet but it looked like all the kids had a great time. It was a great event and everyone who worked on it should be proud. I'm hoping that next my youth foundation will be able to host a lake event in the San Diego area.
Showtime is also most here, The Fred Hall Fishing show will the here the first part on March, you can see a banner ad for the event on our home page.

Ventura Fishing Club

Last night I spoke to 62 members of the Ventura Fishing Club. I wanted to thank them for inviting me and for the great dinner. It's always fun to talk about fishing, but the one thing that I really enjoy about this group of anglers that they too like to take kids fishing. I wish every fishing club in the country would do same thing and take a bunch of kids fishing who have never been fishing before, this world would be a better place. Thanks again for dinner last night and thanks for inviting me to speak to your club, it was lot of fun.
