Got home last night from a GREAT Trip on the Rail Time. Rob Webster set up this Charter, as he did last year and once again, it was an outstanding trip, as not only did we have the good fortune of capturing a rare charter window with Gary Adams, we were able to add Mark Wisch to the mix, as well as a few other good sticks such as Rob, Matt Resnick, Bill Morris, Curtis, as such we felt pretty good that the odds were stacked in our favor..... And stacked it was..... from fantastic table fare, great humor and good friendship, we wrapped up a trip that will remain in our memories for years to come. Gary and his crew did a bang up job, working all the usual spots on the island. Gary and Mark would note the conditions, we'd slide in and pick a few off from each spot. It was great to see both these guys at work. We could of easily pulled off a double limits trip, but the quality of the fish that yielded personal bests for several of us, simply left us looking at one another and asking why..., so we released the last few. You know it's been a good trip with you leave them biting... :) Here's a couple shots of my own personal best, which was a 48# (47.4# at the weigh station)) slob....
We then went searching to round out the trip with a few forkies and other fare and as luck would have it, we witness Mark Wisch decking is own personal best with a 38# YT.... Absolutely Sweet...!!!
I'd like to seriously thank Gary Adams and his crew, was well as Rob, Mark and all the other guys on the charter for a fantastic trip. It's hard to imagine a harder working crew, more professional crew, we tussled with all the species one would look for a Catalina trip, ended up with a great blend of table fare (WSB, YT, Halibut), and personal best records were set for at least 3 anglers, if not four. Simply put...... It was all good.... :) Unfortunately, there weren't that many pics snapped with my camera, but there are more...., so hopefully some of the other guys will chime in once they wipe the sleep from their eyes... And gents..... Thanks again..!!! It was an honor and privilege... :) :) Cheers, Bill

I've known Gary Adams a long time, and he is a true class act. I knew he'd be good at this charter business.
Glad you had such a great trip, awesome to leave em biting. Good report, good going.

Darn it Bill, didn't you see the "JA" initials on that fish? That was my 50lber that I am supposed to catch this year, although I was going to wait a couple more weeks to let it get bigger;)

Congrats to all of you guys, it looks like a really fun trip and I'm sure it was nice for all of you to fish together again. Thanks for sharing the pics and the story, the Rail Time is an awesome boat to fish from!

Have a great weekend and enjoy your fresh seabass.

Indeed it was a great trip, I didn't need a camera to have those picture permanently sketched into my brain! Gary, Mark and crew did a great job, and collectively, we got it done! Thanks to Aloha for putting this memorable trip together, can't wait till next year! Bill

Bill..

Great report...once again it was a blast!!!
And you're right, there are more pics, including the ones where a big seabass was dropped on someones head!!! I sent a bunch to Rob as he is such a wordsmith... he'll tell the story far better than I. Congratulations on your PB seabass, what a great catch!!!

Cripes.....

I was hoping hadn't snapped that one..... LOL...

I can't wait to see it.... NOT!!! :) :)

On second thought, maybe you should include it in your seminars on how 'not' to hold a fish for a quality pic... LOL.... :)

Great fishing with you again Mark... It was a total blast and congrats on your PB Yellowtail as well... What a pig fork that was!!

Cheers, Bill

Nice going Bill! :tu::tu::tu::tu:

Those are beautiful pictures of some big slobs....and the fish look nice too. ;)8)

Congrats on your 48# seabass - did you extract the otoliths from it? They must be gorgeous.

And Mark's YT....8*...all you can say is WOW! That fish is bigger than anything we caught at Cedros last year on the Royal Star. How awesome to catch a YT of that quality in your own backyard. Congrats!

I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures. I'll bet $$$ there's one of Resnick in his blue/white flowered board shorts and ugg boots. And Morris with a can of Bud glued to his hand. And hopefully one of Rob smiling because he doesn't seem to be smiling much in the picture of him and Mark. I wouldn't be smiling that much either if I had to have my picture taken with a guy holding a 38# YT. @(

Congrats again to all you guys on a fantastic trip. :):)
Hope to see you all soon on the water.

LOL....

Yes, Webster was smiling and laughing more than I've seen him do in quite some time..., Mark too.., in fact, all were in good form as it was one of those perfect trips. The weather cooperated, a great mix of guys, the food was awesome and of course, the fishing only topped things off...

In regards to your other question....



Yes, the crew did dig out those puppies and as you can tell by my not so small paws, I've got a couple excellent sized stones to do something with. I hope to head out there again with a group from work, hope to see you out there...

Cheers, Bill

Well, hard to add much to Bill's thoughts - he said it very well. But, given I'm never at a loss for words (translation - big mouth) I'll give it a shot The 2nd Annual Webby Railtime Charter was a tremendous success before we ever put a fish on the deck. The never ending busting chops (politically correct version) and laughter began before we ever left the dock. Forget the great fishing that Gary and Mark found for us, I thought it was a target rich environment for me as soon as we left the dock. Lessee....shall I start in on Larkin for bringing enough gear for your average 10 day?? Or move straight into a diatribe about Mr. "I'm on Fire spotting marlin" Morris. Or launch a salvo at Wisch about any one of a number of soft spots (what has 4 letters and starts with a G) :). Resnik had provided plenty of material for me based on his recent Blackjack antics. I knew this would be a blast...as long as I could take the massive heat that would inevitably be directed my way :). After all, it ain't hard to find things to bust my chops about!! As I said, we laughed the ENTIRE trip and that is always the primary goal when this group fishes. Fishing with Gary and "crew" (kinda hard to call these guys crew if you knew them) only made it more fun - GREAT guys. Hosting these trips is a wonderful way for me to gather some of my best fishing buddies in an environment where none of us have to spend any time on anything other than relaxing and having fun. None of us have to run the boat, figure out where to fish etc. That is kinda nice to do once in a while. This trip was also a chance to reconnect with my friend Curtis who is a guy that I literally grew up fishing with and then barely saw for over 20 years. That was wonderful. And he fit right in with this motley gang. Thanks again Curt for providing about 15 embarrassing stories about my youth - BASTIDO! Below are some additional pics. We will start with the shot where Larkin had the bright idea to try to military press his near 50# slob. And in the second pic you can see the inevitable result - he is now wearing the fish on his head. Dude - you are WAY too old to try to lift anything over your head that weighs more than a Bud Lite LMAO!! By the way, watching Bill after this incident confirms that WSB slime is not an appropriate substitute for hair gel - and it's fairly hard to get it out of your hair LOL!!!! Then a few more pics. This trip was a BLAST!! Only downside was missing Rob E (had to cancel) who would have taken the barbs and laughter up a notch. And missing my son Bobby who could not miss school. Thanks to all you guys for the excellent provisioning. We ate and drank like kings!!Next trip is a summer trip for sure!
