 Monday, June 13, 2005 - good 1/2 day (am) Back
Seas: 3-4'    Water Temp: 78.8°F Crew: Bob and Manual 
Moon:   Location: PW   
Species: 5 king mackeral
1 'cuda's 
Category: Near shore (inside of 20 miles)   
Report: Weather back to normal or almost on Monday morning. Seas still a little sloppy by very fishable, mostly a swell out of the SE about 3-4 feet. We started at Pop Warner art. reef and never left there. I used the Sabiki (5 of them) to catch sardines and cigar minnows for live bait and they were getting eaten by kings and 'cudas about everyother drop so we just started baiting up the king rods and drifting baits back as we caught bait. It was hot. Never went over 10 minutes all morning without a fish of one kind or another hooked up. Ended keeping 3 kings, 1 large Spanish, one big 'cuda and loosing a bunch of fish to 'cudas and pulled hooks. It really is a learning experience for those that have never live baited with light tackle. I only use 17 or 20 # line on Star Kingfish Special rods and Shimano Speedmaster reels. It's a ball. On a good fish (just about anything over 10#s) you end up chasing the fish because we only use 4 #s of drag due to the small hooks used for livebaiting. You can use larger hooks but you get fewer bites and I feel it is more important to get the bites than to land every fish that bites. Besides, if you don't get the bite you can't catch the fish.   'Till tomorrow. Capt. Guy
