Default Rpt Wed 12-03-08 SCI Reds and Stuff.

Fishing with Dave Robinson, on his 28’ Farallon “Hooked”, with friend Jim. We launched out of Dave’s slip in Newport Harbor at 5:00 am Wed. morning with glassy calm waters and hazy skies.



Our initial destination was the East end of San Clemente Island. The ride out was filled with schools of porpoise, on flat calm seas. We arrived outside of Pyramid cove around 8am with numerous warnings from the Warship 104 that live firing exercises would commence shortly. We hailed the warship and made sure our location was in a zone that was acceptable, it was. We began our first drift in around 270’of water and the fish were on the chew.



Jim was first to catch a very nice Red Vermillion.







I started off with one of the very numerous Bocaccio to inhabit the area, at least this one was a big’n.







Myself with some nice Red Vermillion.







Jim with a Red Vermillion and Dave with a Salmon Grouper.







Dave with a big Red Vermillion.







We worked this area for several hours, while watching the gunship fire round after round of ammo into China Point. The bite eventually slowed down and Dave elected to make a run outside of the warship towards Lost Point. We again checked in to receive clearance to proceed to the new area.



We made a drift in deeper water around 350’, and found some big Reds on the chew.



Jim found the big Red Vermillion loved his Jax Jig,







I also found some Big Reds in these waters.







I added some nice Copper rockfish.







Another Big Bocaccio.











Dave found some of the bigger Starry rockfish and 3 Spots very hungry.





Having caught plenty of the deep water fish, we moved into the shallows and found mostly nursery rockfish, with a few different varieties such as Tree Fish, Johnny Bass, Sheephead, and a bunch of nice size whitefish. Jim was bringing up a Starry when a 100 LB. Mako decided his Starry looked like lunch. Had we had a bigger gaff handy, we might of stuck it, as Jim fought it close to the boat before breaking it off.



It was shortly after 3:30pm, so we called it a day. The ride to Newport Harbor was incredible, on Lake Pacific, absolute grease. So calm we only had to slow down a little to be able to clean fish.



Just another day in Paradise. Thanks again Dave, always a blast to fish with you, and another day to remember. Nice meeting you Jim. Let’s do it again soon.





Hook up!
