Hi,

I'm doing a June 5 dayer at the end of the month.

What should I expect? Albacore if they show up? The Rocks?

Thanks,

Harddrive

The Rocks? Man is that ever wishful thinking for a June 5 day trip! With the price of fuel being what it is, we may never see a 5 day "suicide run" to the Rocks again.

Your looking at Albies and maybe BF, (Hopefully!), and Cedros or Benitos for YT. Then maybe a few deep drops for rockfish to round out the trip.

Lots of possibilities for variety and bringing home a tasty catch. :):tu:

This weekend will be the kickoff to the serious offshore hunt to locate some Albacore. There will be massive coverage from the code group on trips of 3-8 days in length beginning as early as today with a 6 day on Excel. Also, many of the shorter range boats will be out on day and a half, two day and three day trips.

I've never been on a four or five day at that time. Seems like they have all been later in the season like July, August or September.

Unless the Albacore are going off big time offshore somewhere, you may make the run to the inside to fish Yellowtail on the beach. It's a long run to Cedros and a middle of the day departure will usually put you near the Boiler at Benitos by 3:00 or 4:00 P.M. the following day. From there, the captain can go to Cedros or some spots on the beach to look for Yellows. This type of trip will have jigs in the water looking for tuna on the way down and back up.

I think we'll all have a beter idea in a week or two about how things are going to unfold. Let's hope for a Mother Load of Albacore that shows up and sticks around through the Summer, gets off the speed bait and starts munching Sardines full speed. That's good stuff!

Thanks Guys for the Tip. Didn't think I'd be taking this trip. The price was right and I've always wanted to ride the Indy.

The LR fleet. They will go the distance regardless of gas price. That is my humble opinion.

Legend on a 3 dayer went to Benitos. We had 6 hours or awesome fishing and long boat ride. But boats will do what they need to do to make sure the customers come back.

Let the Blue Fin show up.

And you are certainly entitled to it. :)

But there's a world of difference between the two in both trip price and fuel cost then vs. now. And the Intrepid doesn't need to go to Alijos on a 5 day, which no one in their right mind expects, to make sure their customers come back. ;)

Thanks for the Advice guys.

I'm sure we'll be trolling and scanning on the way down and way up.

Thanks for the tip on Jigs. I'll have to bring a bunch of them and throw like crazy. :)

Warzon. I figure great price. And some nice dude wanted to sell his trip. Why the heck now.

Bubba, If I catch any Albies. I'll bring you some canned tuna.

I am just looking for some time off from work and relaxing.

Thanks,

Indy called this morning to tell me that my June trip was cancelled due to lack of interest.

Now I'm on the Purfield Charter from June 30th to July 5th. Indy gave me a 200 buck credit so now I get to do a summer trip for spring price. :D
