Calm Mornings and Hot Ation

Trip Info


We left the dock really early today, and were fishing at 6:00AM. The seas were calm, and there was very little current in the inshore water. I had checked the satellite sea surface temperature report on earlier in the morning and got a pretty good image, showing a nice temperature break about 7.4 miles off of the Laguna Gri-Gri. We had a nice group of fishermen from Colorado onboard, and everyone was hopped up for a good fishing day.
We were not disappointed. Although we could`t find our FAD right away, since it had slid about a mile to the west and a half-mile offshore, we headed out to the temperature break area. The scattered sargasso made it a hard area to fish, but it was worth it. We were “running and gunning” smaller Dorado, that were pushing up flying fish. It worked out better to run down the birds and then pitch some ballyhoo chunks, and wait for the school to find us. All in all we caught a nice bunch of small and medium Dorado, and had a great time doing it.
We`re going out again in a few days and are going to target only blue marlin, so I`ll let you know how many we catch. In the meantime keep on login` on to Fishing Booker for the latest and greatest fishing on the North Coast with Capt. Randy Rode, 44 years experience sportfishing, we don`t mess around.
