Last week's TILE trip was an interesting one. We started in the area where we had left them biting the trip before only to find the area stone dead! We moved around a bit and found some fish to work on, catching both BLUELINE and GOLDEN TILEFISH.
Unfortunately the wind started to blow pretty hard and it made fishing a bit difficult. We still picked and plucked at various species throughout the day with some quality fish mixed in.
The second day we picked away at small GOLDENS for a while and then found some nicer fish to end the trip on. We even had a couple of rarely caught species like TAIWAN GULPER SHARKS and a MORAY EEL.
Mr. Kim took the GOLDEN pool with a beautiful 33 pound fish and Barry Kaplan won the "other edible bottom fish" pool with a 15 pound BLUELINE. Barry's fish was part of a double header which also included a GOLDEN just shy of 31 pounds, not too shabby! You can see the pictures on our web site. Overall it wasn't the best trip and it wasn't the worst. The good thing is the dogfish are pretty much gone and you can actually "fish" now.
We were forced to cancel today's TILE trip due to poor offshore weather but we have plenty of room on our next 2-Day trip, next Sunday night May 21. E-mail us if you are interested.
LING fishing has started to pick up in our area with better catches being made every day. We have added a couple of LING MARATHON trips to our schedule over the next week or so.
We will have marathons this:
- Wednesday, May 17 and the following Thursday, May 25.
These open boat (no reservations needed) trips leave at 6:30AM and return at 4:30PM. Its time to come down and catch one of the best eating fish our waters have to offer!
