Rosarito Peir Fishing Report

Over the weekeend I drove down to Rosarito to check things out and to get away from work. It was hard for me, but I didn't bring a fishing rod with me, I only took along my camera. on the peir i met a buch of different people who were fishing, some were fishing very hard and others were hardly fishing. As one one group told me when I asked them how the fishing was going the told me it was slow and then one of them said, "We have lots of Beer and lots of Hope." I really liked that line. My next stop was down to the village over by Fox studios where to comeercial panga fisherman run out of. I was glad to see that there are now sport fishing boats running out of there now, they only have pangas, but's it's a start. I always enjoying being in Baja.

New Salmon Queen Report

Last Sunday we fished aboard the New Salmon Queen out of Emeryville Sport Fishing. The plan was to drift for salmon, but I guess no one told the salmon that. We fished very close to the beach just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in about 30 feet of water, there were huge schools of bait fish in the are so that's why the skipper fished there. We did get three salmon and one nice haibut there, but what we also found was the big surprise. We hooked around 50 thresher sharks! We only landed nine of them, if we would have had wire leader we could of get limits for the whole boat. The sharks were everywhere. We didn't get the salmon like we were hoping, but we did end up getting a great TV show that I know you'll are going to enjoy. Here are a few pictures from this trip, I have more pictures posted on our face book fan page.

New Huck Finn Fishing Report

We just got back from our four day trip up to Emeryville to fish aboard the New Huck Finn an dthe New Salmon Queen. This is the fishing report of our saturday trip aboard the New Huck Finn.
Our skipper had warned up to expect ugly weather, but as it worked out the seas were clam and there wasn't any wind to speak of, it was a great day to be on the water.

Most of our day was spent trolling for salmon, fishing was a bit slow, we ended the day with only a hand full of salmon and to make sure everyone had fish Jay took us to one of his hot spots for rock fish and we had easy limits of great eating rock fish. all the salmon were taken on anchoives and so were most of the rock fish, a few of the larger rock fish were taken on B 52 bucktails, Here are a few pictures from the trip, I posted many more on our face book fan page.

Smoking lots of Fish

The other day a friend of mine needed to smoke over 60 pounds of salmon and halibut for a fundrasier event, he had no clue how to do this much fish at one time and have it ready to serve straight from the smoker. I have smoked lots of fish over the years, but I too have done this much fish at one time. I called my friends over at Bradley Smoker and asked for help. We ended up using three Bradley Smokers, two four rack and one six rank units and all the fish came out great, the event was a huge success and everyone loveed the somked fish. Thank you Bradley Smokers for all your help!

Fishing Report From Ensenada, Mexico

Here's a fishing report from my friend Louie in Ensenada.

Angel, Cesar and myself left Ensenada at 3:30AM heading for the tuna pens where the bluefin have been hitting and missing. We were hoping to make the area by grey light with a load of mostly anchovies that were fading away pretty quickly. Washing machine conditions put us there around 7ish and from what we saw and experienced the bite was over as we were setting up. It also rained off and on until about 11am and water temps dropped from 64.7 to 63.9. Not many fish hooked or seen hooked all morning. So we headed for the 295 and stopped next to Twilight Zone in time to see them pull up a nice yellow on a paddy around 2 to 3 miles from the tuna pens. The water was warmer here and we continued on to the 295 stopping on 15+ paddies for nobody home. We did see a greyhounding marlin some 5-6 miles from the 295 but that was it until....we put the trollers in at the 295 and headed for the 238 and at 31.33/117.46 we get bit on a small feather. We are all thinking tuna and suddenly a large marlin starts jumping out of the water. It starts greyhounding towards the boat and quickly turns away and starts ripping line fast. Mind you this fish is being fouhgt on a light rod using 40 lb test. I start chasing it down with the boat and after a 40 minute battle Cesar boats his first ever marlin. After several pictures and some high fives we continue on. By this time the weather has changed and it is now sunny with calming seas. Not much to report after this as all we saw was a lone yellowtail on a kelp paddy and the most dolphin I have ever seen in one area. We drove for 30 minutes and there werre dolphin as far as you could see. Cruised into Cruiseport Marina doing 25mph around 8PM tired but happy that we will be eating some delicious smoked marlin tacos.

Fishing the Wall

Since I started my guide service I started fishing along the breakwall a lot more, for the most part i have done good there, out of nine chrters I have taken there only one of them had very slow fishing. I wanted to share this with you all because many of you tell me you can't catch a fish there. The easyest fish to land there is the sand bass, for these fish mover your boat away from the wall and fish the roock that come out 40--50 feet. if you more your boat away from the wall you will catch plenty of sand bass.
Good luck!
