Cool beans, paid for the trip, the Boss is looking for a hotel for Monday night so she can shop while I fish, Iím not sure what is going to be more expensive my trip or her shopping trip 🤔. Either way this is going to be my first trip after retiring the end of the month....I think Iím going to like retirement 😁. Bill

Hide her wallet before you go out on the boat.   Grin Happy retirement.  One time a thief stole my credit cards but I didn't report it.  The thief spent less than my wife.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

A quick trip report,

Left the house Monday at 6:30 pm for the 2 hour drive to Ventura Harbor. A quick stop for a Subway sandwich, put me at the landing at 9:15 pm. People were starting to board the boat.  I unpacked my stuff and headed down the ramp.  The crew was there to bring the poles and tackle boxes aboard.  Once I got on, I stowed my bedding on my bunk and headed up for the safety briefing.  The last fisherman got caught in traffic and boarded at the last minute and we were off.

At the harbor mouth, I saw small bait fish jumping in the wake off the port side.  About 15 minutes later, dolphin were jumping in the wake off the starboard side.....a good omen?  Time will tell.  For now time to climb into the rack....the mattresses are comfortable on the Endeavor, but if you are over 6í tall may be a little tight....luckily Iím not 😁

Around 5:00 am I heard the boat slow down as the captain started searching the area around a squid boat that was trawling.  Shortly after that we stopped and dropped anchor.  Everyone that was up dropped down using a dropper loop, 8oz of lead and 5/0 hooks.  I wasnít in the water more then 5 minutes and Hook Up!  The drags were screaming on the Fathom 25NLD2.  As quick as that 25 yards of flouro carbon was in the water and the 65 lb braids was peeling out.  I increased the drag and was able to slow down the SEAL!  😡😡😡. Well the seal didnít want to give me back my dropped loop or the flouro.  The deckhand came over and busted him off for me......well that got kind of expensive, but no time to think about that.....pulled some 30 lb mono, tied another dropper loop, tied it directly to the braid, back in business.  Back in the water with whole squid and within 5 minutes another hook up!  Woohoo, set the hook, start peeling line out under drag and Zing POW broke off.  Well this time I only lost my hook. Another dropper loop and back in business.  

By this time itís wide open kaos.....the WSB Wolfpack was moving through and we had 4 people hooked up....the first WSB over the rail was a bruiser that took Sheridan around the boat.....more fish came over the rail with a liberal application of gaffing techniques, all these fish were big!  Ohhh heck!  Hook up number three (if you count the seal as one 😆) this one is pulling drag, so I advance the lever drag and stop him in his tracks, drop into low gear and grind him in, another application of gaffing techniques and my 1st WSB is on deck.  Things seem to calm down now, then the Wolfpack reappears, and bam....3 people are hooked up.....more big WSB hit the deck...classic pre-dawn bite, that was over by the time sun up and bright over the horizon.....we fished for a while longer but no one else wanted to come home for dinner....

We moved closer to the island for some shallow water fishing.....white fish, sheepshead, and blue bass were all coming over the rail....I ended up with 2 white fish and a chili pepper.....time to move to deeper water, sorry Keith, we have to fish deeper sometimes 😆. From then on a pretty steady diet of quality rock fish coming over the rail...the skipper did a good job of placing us over the rock piles, directing us to either side of the boat to get a good drift.  

Fish were being taken with cut squid, flat falls, soft plastic swim baits, jigs, you name it....we finished the trip with a high speed drift on the backside of Anacapa, which produced blue bass, but we were at our limit....time to return to port. The 3 hour cruise to port allowed everyone time to lay down and take a nap.....on the way in the deckhands performed the usual duty of filleting fish, I was intrigued watching the deckhand carve up the WSB....huge slabs of meat fitting 1 filet per 2 gallon zip lock bag.....

My WSB was estimated at 30 lbs, one of the smallest, the largest was probably 50+ 🤔.

The dock totals are as follows:
13 White Sea Bass
130 rock fish
35 white fish
2 sheepshead

Had a great trip, this over night trip, provided some good lessons for whatís to come on my upcoming 3 day Avet chartered SOA drip in June.......Bill
