Sunset Stripers Jigging Trip
Captain Ant reports that it is simply the best Bass fishing we’ve seen in the summer in years.  We made our first drift last night and once again it was on. Then the squall hit…50 plus knot wind, lightening striking around the boat, hail pelting the hearty crew…we literally had to take a 20 minute break and let it pass hoping the bite would still be on.  And it was.  Chris Luke was on fire, George Jehn does what George Jehn does, slay Bass.  Frank Stoutenberg also crushed them however his highlight was a 6.5lb sea bass.  Doug Seay got hot in the end and also had a 4lb fluke.  It was so good our last drift from 9-915 in full darkness produced 6 keepers.  Just unreal.  Thanks to the break from the squall we were 7 fish shy of our limit.  The pool winners were  Jose Garcia with a 32lbs Second Frank Stoutenburgh with a 29.9lbs We sail again tonight at 530p….can’t wait to get back out there!!!!

Whale Watch

2013 continues to be a stellar year with an amazing 100% success rate. Today we found a leatherback while on our way to whale grounds and then began to see whales. Today was a humpback day- seeing 3 different humpbacks spread out over several miles. They were staying down for long periods but gave us good views when back up. While viewing the whales we encountered a small group of common dolphins (about 20), On our way back we once again found a super aggregation of about 600 dolphins- all around us for 1/2 mile then another hundred and another humpback, as well as one more leatherback.

Totals: 4 Humpbacks 720 Common Dolphins 2 Leatherback Sea Turtles 1 Blue Marlin 150 Cory’s Shearwaters 55 Great Shearwaters 1 Sooty Shearwater 200 Wilson’s Storm Petrels
