Default Sportking 11/20

Well, decided to go out on the Sportking out of LA Harbor on Saturday seeing as thought the Premeir wasn't running do to a movie shoot at the harbor and the Sea Spray was down, and the Pursuit had a lot of reservations. I hadn't fished the boat in a long time and was quickly reminded why.

We ran out to the bait reciever and grabber some great dines. However as we were getting bait the captain literally pushed a private boater off the reciever tha had been waiting for a long time to get bait, and then pretty much told the guy Tough $&@! when he said something.

Anyway, we were off the Catalina, which sounded good. We got over to the island in about 3 hours (as the captain ran the boat at what seemed like trolling speed the entire way) and startd to fish the west end, for nothing. So he decided to make a move. Which sounded good seeing as there are a lot of good rockfish reefs, or we could fish the kelp, etc...

Howeever, he decided to continuously drift past Eagle Rock on the West end,,,,fishing perch. Yes fishing perch. Infact he instructed everyone how to rig up and wanted us to do nothing but fish perch.

Not only was that bad, but he kept yelling off the bridge at people to "slow down" and take your time when relling them in....as is someone was getting over excited with big tuna on or somehing.

We did manage 2 yellows. One was caught on a perch rig and a strip of squid (go figure....we were fishing perch) and was about 2#, the other was hooked about 5 minuted later on a dine. But then he decided to make a move just as the fish started to show, and anchor farther outside of the kelp.....the fish never returned.

All in all I was glad to be on the water, but will probably never fish the boat again. Sorry, no pis....didn't want to waste the batteries.


OH wait the highlight of the trip was when a bald eagle flew into the chumline for a snack....alway great to see.

Hey Reyno sorry to hear of the slow day fishing but atleast you got into a wide open hot bite on those Catalina Pirana

Thanks for advising us on the Sport King and hopefully the Capt will learn to respect others boaters.

Thanks for the report :!:

Don't hold your breth on the captain learning anything, anytime, ever. A complete buffoon.

And that boat is a royal POS.

Roger,

With the profound pulling power of these agressive feeders, I was fishing 80# spectra with a 100 yard top shot of 100# Flouro on a brand new TLD50 :!: . Needless to say I couldn't stop some of these agressive palegic wannabe's. I guess that is why the captain kept shouting to slow down. :shock: :shock:
