Weekly Report: 5/24-5/30

The fishing was wide-open this week!  We didn’t have to run far most days to catch rockfish on the troll.  The highlight of the week was taking out Mike Ebersberger of Anglers and the D.U. “Duckettes.”  These ladies were excited to catch fish and they were a blast to have onboard.  It turns out, they can crank in fish as well as they can sell raffle tickets!  Here are some pics from that day…

This week yielded good numbers of resident stripers (rockfish) in the 18 to 24 inch class with an occassional fish exceeding 30″.  The fish were moving fast but once we found them, it was fast and furious action!  We didn’t fish every day, but caught limits on the days we did.  A few boats in the fleet also connected with some big, black drum.

Unfortunately, my camera broke  so I don’t have any pics from this week.

The last few days of the trophy season were tough as most of the migratory fish exited the Bay.  The size and creel limits changed on Sunday.  We made a brief run south and found the resident fish after some searching.

Heavy winds and not-so-easy-fishing were the story this week.  Some folks even cancelled.  A lot of the biting fish were short-striking to make matters worse.  We fished through the challenges though and came close to limiting-out each trip.  The highlight of the week was an afternoon trip with the guys from Builder Guru hosted by Ben Harries and Todd Haynie.  These guys always catch fish and are fun to be around.  Can’t wait for their next trip!

The guys from Builder Guru like to fish!

The weather cooperated most of the week but the fish were a bit scattered.  The bite wasn’t exactly red-hot, but we managed to catch a limit of nice rockfish every trip.  We found some fish hanging out in some unusual spots which was a difference-maker.  I had some old friends on the boat this week and made some friends too.  It was a lot of fun!  Some highlight pics are below.
