it was yesterday on the new captain pete.  i spent all week going through gear.  we have a set of 20 rods and reels for these trips.  they all needed fresh line and half needed repairs of one type or another. 

juan lezama and tracy wong joined me, as well as mel kon and ed marchese. 

we had a group of boy scouts from the mid peninsula.  very tough group, very polite, determined to catch fish.  we boarded the new captain pete at 6:30 and were underway in just 20 minutes.  they all settled in quickly.

the deckhands, dylan and greg, were amazing.  they were great with the kids, patient and really hard working. 

it was great to see mike cabanas at the wheel.

it was nice to finally get a reasonable weather day.

mike ran us all the way down to pescadero.  the kids all caught quality rockfish, a half dozen lingcod and there was even a halibut that came over the rail!

it's alot of work, but a great way to give back to the community.

Great job, Alan!

Thanks for the report and the photos.

Who knows how many of those young folks will not only remember this all of their lives —- but also find new outdoor interests and the possibility of passing it forward to others?

Some may be hooked!

The first rule of fishing is to fish where the fish are. The second rule of fishing is to never forget the first rule.

Good on ya, Boss!
I didn't get any opportunities to charter fish in the Ocean as a kid. Just the local piers. I really missed out.
Looks like you guy's got into some Blues(my eating favorite, last photo).
Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!


So cool!  How are those Okuma reels holding up?  I have one of those levelwinds somewhere.
Nothing but friends & fins on


Fish grins all around!  Thanks for sharing this and supporting the kids!
