Southern California Saltwater Guide Trip 07/03/2018 – I was really excited and eager for my alarm clock to go off this morning because of how unique of a trip it was going to be today. Picked up Mathew at Channel Islands harbor this morning at 6am just like any normal Trip, only thing is Mathew is a die hard fly fisherman and only brought flygear. We set out on lake like summer conditions in hopes of catching a gamefish on a hand tied fly and fly rod. More specifically a White Sea bass because the current world record for fly fishing White seabass is only a weight of a little over 12 pounds. Normally known for their elusiveness, the first stop in the morning we see many seabass up on the surface giving their presence away while they ate red crabs. A few different spots of fish that gave us close shots were up long enough for Mathew to place a red crab imitation fly near their mouths. Only thing missing was a bite. Acting very finicky, we stayed persistent but never tricked one into eating a fly. A very visual show was had as we watched seabass swim around the boat, one even swimming within spitting distance of the bow of the boat, so close you could almost reach down and touch it, but still never bit anything with a hook. Nonetheless a really cool sight to see. Mathew was very experienced and very determined and with his patience we stuck it out for as long as conditions would let us but never got one to bite. Afterwards we moved to a different area in search of a yellowtail in the afternoon on the fly but were compensated with bass and bonito instead. Really awesome trip getting to see Mathew perform an art of a different style of fishing and getting to pull on a few fish because of it. The fly fishing world record seabass is still swimming around somewhere and we’re determined to catch it. Thanks Mathew it was an awesome trip on the water . – Captain Jake Klinshaw

Southern California Saltwater Fishing Charter 07/01/2018 – Headed out with Manny and his two sons this morning in some beautiful lake like weather in hopes of the boys catching their first ever fish. They did just that plus many more! With slower island fishing we opted to spend the day local and change the pace with some bass fishing. We were rewarded with basically wide open action all day. Since it was the boys first fishing trip ever, I worked with them and within the first hour they were flylining baits to bass better than most seasoned anglers. Well over 100 mixed sand bass and calico bass were caught with double and triple hookups the normal throughout the day. After they caught more than their fair share of bass, the guys wanted to keep a few fish so we fished shallow water rockfish for some quick limits of delicious eating fish to take home before calling it a day. A very good day at that. Very enjoyable group of people and another awesome day on the water. Thanks fellas, hope to see you again. – Captain Jake Klinshaw

Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 04/01/2018 – Today I had the pleasure of taking out Antonio, Danny and Tony. With amazing spring weather, we left the harbor on lake like conditions and headed for the island. After starting out losing two yellowtail in the shallows, we switched gears and began fishing whitefish and sheepshead on the light tackle. The guys had a blast and plunked away until they caught limits of nice whitefish, a few calico bass that were released, and 10 sheepshead keeping half of them. So as to not abuse the whitefish limits, we switched to a little bit heavier gear and took to the smaller deeper stones where the quality rockfish live. With lake like conditions and no current it was hard to find a spot that wanted to bite. The guys stuck it out in good spirits and didn’t give up. On the very last spot their patience paid off and it was wide open on jumbo size chucks and a few reds mixed in. They made short work of their limits with doubles and ended up finishing off on their full 20 fish per person limits. Awesome day, amazing weather and super rad group of guys. Can’t wait to see you again, thank you for coming out fellas. – Captain Jake Klinshaw

Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 03/30/2018 – Today I had the pleasure of meeting Andy and his son Eric. With a break in the spring weather the day started with plans by Andy to have a fish fry party later that day so as we were leaving the harbor I knew we had some serious taco meat catching to do. We shot across in lake like weather to start in the shallows of anacapa island. The guys had non stop action on light gear catching whitefish and sheepshead. They made short work of their limits of whitefish and as to not abuse the limits, we switched up to a little heavier gear and made a move outside to the deeper water to catch some rockfish. The guys picked away at really nice quality chucks until they completed their limits on those as well. This completed the 20 fish combined species limits per person and also meant they guys had lots of meat for the fish fry party. Awesome fishing, awesome weather and even better people. It was a pleasure fellas, look forward to seeing you again! – Captain Jake Klinshaw

Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 03/10/2018 – Had the pleasure of taking out anglers Alex and Mike who you may have seen before as they work on the sportfishing boat “Freelance” out of Newport Harbor. Spring time weather left us limited to a smaller area to fish due to the wind that picked up in the afternoon but the guys stuck it out and were awesome. Started out fishing calico bass and the guys plucked out a few that were willing to play. We ended up switching gears and tried some vertical fishing for rockfish. Tough conditions but we scratched a bag of nice Chucks, whitefish and sheepshead. It was a pleasure taking these gentlemen out and I can’t wait to see them out again. Thank you again fellas– Captain Jake Klinshaw

Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 03/04/2018 – We had returning anglers Danny and Tony out today for the first trip of the 2018 saltwater season. We had less than favorable conditions today but the guys wanted to target some quality rockfish for the beginning of the season and that’s just what we did. With windy conditions we fished the front side of Santa Cruz and put together a decent catch of limits of chucks and reds for the guys. Awesome time with them and they always crack me up. Thanks for getting the season started and fishing with us fellas. Look forward to the rest of the season and what it offers. – Captain Jake Klinshaw
