Monday - What did the boyz wanna do after spending a week in the Sierras, well go to Catalina of course!

Made it to the front side by 8am and it was like summer over there :lol:

Water 71 and the air felt like it was about 80! Threw the swimbaits for a few nice fish and then switched to the iron and never went back. Got a couple 'o nice 3-5lb fish on the front side and then decided to move around the west end.

Ryan said he wants to learn about throwing the iron and we held a little class. We ended up with about 15 more fish before the wind picked up and we headed back to try PV by about noon.

Just as we reached the West End I had two monster yellowtail swim right by the boat but they wanted nothing to do with any of our offerings.


Threw iron along a few areas for only 2 followers and 1 barracuda. Water from the golf course to Fermin was about 70 degrees.


TONS of bait at the islands, in the channel and at PV Monday.


THURSDAY - What did dad wanna do after 2 weeks with the kids, while the wife enjoyed solitude at work, go to Clemente of course...

OK, I've been to SCI once and Norm had never been there, so after checking with a few of the SCI Gurus for advice, off we went.

The original plan to fish the backside was canceled by a pretty good pounding trying to round NW Harbor.

Off to the front side and in tight to the rocks and kelp.

Man this place is just beautiful!!!

Our first drift up the island lasted over 2 hours and was good for approx 40+ fish. No big fish, most in the 1-3lb range, with a few pushing 4lbs.


Lots of nice colors in the fish today

Started the drift with a few on the Pearl Swimbaits and then we had an epic iron bite for well over 1.5 hours. A few nice doubles in the fray made it that much mo bettah!!!

Tried going down around Pyramid but the wind was howling, maybe 25+ mph???


Back up the frontside for a slower pick, mostly on the swimbaits.

Wind died and it was a decent ride home 25-32mph 95% of the way, drinkin' Red Bulls and eatin Fried Chicken. Don't get much better!

Total we figured was in excess of 60 of them calico fish today!!!

Anyone know were to get a cheap skin graft for both thumbs????
