Had some wind, swell and wind waves to contend with but our crew stuck to it and got rewarded with nice salmon. Weather is supposed to improve starting Monday.
Fished for a few hours in the deep and got four lingcod and some rockcod but we got antsy and with all the commercial boats trolling by us we decided to switch to salmon. As soon as we dropped we’re hooked up. Made one long turn and brought home two beautiful salmon with all the lingcod and rockcod. Very good fishing day.
Commercial salmon fishing today and the fish are still here. Found fish just five miles from port.
Commercial salmon fishing today and fishing was very good. Found fish closer to port and the fish were big!
Hooked 14 salmon and brought home 11 and sealions took home three. Great day today with flat calm water until about noon then we decided to head back in. These are much bigger than the schoolie fish we had for the previous four weeks. High quality and fat fish.
Ran out to Deep Reef (Jurassic) rather than salmon and the fish were hungry! Fish coming over the rail non-stop until we hit 160 pounds of lingcod (biggest 17 pounds), and copper, green spot, canary and red pacific snapper.
Wow. Decided to switch over to Jurassic Park and what a day we had! Limits of lingcod, petrale sole, wolf eel!, and limits of canary, copper and red pacific snapper to 7 pounds. Came home with a good 80 pounds of fish. Great day. Perfect weather.
Lot of fun at Jurassic catch and releasing lingcod. Switched over to salmon and brought home salmon too! Still to soon to react to the bluefin bite. The fish are skittish and maybe a dozen have been landed in a week out of Monterey Bay.
Since salmon has been slow so we decided to switch to Jurassic Park and what a great day we had with lingcod limits for all plus 100 pounds of snapper!
We decided to fish Jurassic Park and listen on the radio for salmon news. Good move, we loaded up with over 150 pounds of lingcod and snapper. Perfect day.
Flat calm water and perfect weather for our salmon trip. Drove around for a couple hours then switched over to lingcod and rockcod. Brought home two lings to 11 pounds and canary, green spot and brown snapper.
Perfect day on the water but the salmon are still hard to get to bite. We have a new low front in and believe that’s the cause. On the upside, bluefin tuna are here in Monterey Bay! If the tuna stick around for a couple days we will start our tuna runs.
Perfect weather today but the fish were not cooperating, Lost at least five salmon today and came home with one. Keep the tip up and tight lines!
Very nice water today with small seas and little breeze. Lots of commercial boats in our fishing area today and the bite was slower than usual but we still got six hookups, lost one to a sealion, two came unbuttoned and three came home with the group.
Tyler and I went commercial salmon fishing today and we got ’em good! We will be fishing commercial occasionally and will have salmon for sale at the dock. Shoot me your name and phone number if you want to pick up fresh salmon the day we fish. We have to unload the fish before the next day charter. Because it’s commercial caught we are not permitted to cut/filet the fish. You can only buy a whole fish.
Flat calm water again today and the fish are still here! Hooked into ten salmon and brought home five. Great time!
With the low pressure for the past couple days the salmon have been tough to find and get them to bite. We got lucky today and hooked into six and brought home four nice salmon. The low is supposed to be gone after tomorrow so salmon fishing should pick up.
Salmon catching has slowed down even more than yesterday. Hopefully things go back to catching limits tomorrow.
Fish were active again today but just couldn’t get them all in the boat. Hooked into 11 brought home five. Perfect weather again.
Salmon limits again on the MEGA-BITE. Wow, doesn’t get any better than this. In fact, salmon catching hasn’t been this good in over twenty years. Limits for our party of six today plus crew limits. 16 nice salmon to 13 pounds and the boat got back to the dock early! We will be running two salmon trips a day on weekends starting May 4th and will continue for the foreseeable future.
*Perfect weather with flat seas. Salmon bite is going off the hook and and limits are the norm! Jurassic Park trips are producing limits of Lingcod and some big Pacific Snapper! Don’t know how long the weather and the salmon will stay so if you want to get in some great fishing now’s the time to book your trip! We are booking for three boats now.*
(RAYBERT) Took the Raybert out for a salmon setup shakedown and it was wild! Limited out on salmon in about an hour and a half. Lot of whales to watch too. RAYBERT is now ready for salmon service! Good job Captain Ray getting the boat ready for the salmon season.
(MEGA-BITE) Rockcod fishing was a bit on the slow side today but ended well with a fantastic Orca Whale show. Great time and some quality fish.
Folks, the salmon fishing is off the hook right now. Best fishing in over twenty years and limits are common. We schedule three boats now so chances are we can get you out there soon. Look at our Availability Calendar for open seats. You can now view the schedule for three boats.
Jurassic again and wow! Limited out on lingcod right at the start then we went to work on catching canary, brown, vermilion and olive pacific snapper. Water was a bit chunky. The salmon bite is going real strong now too.
Jurassic Park trip today and what a great time and what a load of fish! Fish are biting as soon as your rig hits the bottom. Brought home 175 pounds of lingcod and brown, yellow-tail, canary, olive, and red pacific snapper to nine pounds and petrale sole! Weather was perfect. The salmon bite is red hot right now too.
Jurassic and salmon trip today and it was a long one! Filled the box with limits of lings and some BIG rockcod then switched over to salmon trolling. We spent a bit too much time on the rockcod and not enough on the salmon.
We hooked a good number of fish but only got a couple in the boat. Better luck next time.
Weather was challenging for our Jurassic trip and we traveled well over fifty miles. Found some lingcod, cabezon and nice rockcod.
Jurassic today and the fish were hot! Limited out on lingcod then went for big copper, canary, brown, and yellow tail pacific snapper.
