Saltwater Fishing Charter Reports 2017
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 09/20/2017 – Here is James who went bass fishing with me about a week ago at Lake Casitas in Ventura California and he decided he needed to go ocean fishing this morning. We were done fishing at 1 PM…we hooked nine yellowtail and landed five with the largest being 22 pounds. Super fun and nonstop action big smiles all around. So fun to be back in the harbor and on the trailer by 2 PM driving home with those great feelings. Anglers interested in getting in on the hot yellowtail action can call or text me at 818-439-1154.
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 09/19/2017 – Absolutely exhausted and have to get some sleep… Hooked 18 to 20 yellowtail this morning topped off by this 31 pound monster. Absolutely wide-open fishing and we’re back at it tomorrow morning. Here is John Waller visiting from the Midwest posing with a bunch of fish at noon today. Caught so many that we just began to catch and release em…had to drive away while the fish were still biting. Will give you some more information tomorrow anglers interested in booking a fishing trip can you call or text me at 818-439-1154 for more information.
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 09/17/2017 – Today we took returning anglers Alex, Mario and nick out. We left at 6am and headed away from the cluster of boats leaving the harbor and we headed up the front side of Santa Cruz Island. Deciding to try and catch a surface fish first, we put out the troll rods and started to look for breezers. After seeing signs of fish but not just right it seemed like it was a time of day deal. We picked up one nice bonito on the troll then switched gears to rockfish as the guys wanted some fish for a fish fry. We worked very small spots and plucked at very nice quality chuckleheads, and red snappers. Ended up with limits of rockfish just in time to go back in the shallows in the afternoon. As predicted, the time of day and sunshine brought the surface fish up to play. Big breezers of bonito and barracuda were seen everywhere. We would slide in and the guys would be double and tripled up on wide open bonito and calico bass mixed in on every slide. The guys were very patient and stuck it out all day as we looked for quality not quantity and it paid off. Overall really fun day of fishing. You guys were a pleasure and can’t wait to fish with you again. – Captain Jake Klinshaw
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 09/14/2017 – Headed out of the harbor at 6am on Sunday with anglers Rick, Tom, and Frank. Some unexpected weather made the crossing a little slower and after the guys suited up, we watched a beautiful thunder and lightning storm at a safe distance that made the crossing pretty neat. Really tough conditions at the island made fishing tough. The guys stuck it out in hopes of hooking a yellow. Really good sign of fish but the weather front had them lockjaw. Had one small halibut for their efforts. Switched gears and fished for bass in the boilers. The wind on the outside kept us limited to a small area that we could fish. Within it, The guys had a couple doubles and lots of single fish to be had but smaller grade and slower. Towards the last part of the day, we shot to the beach and had wide open bass fishing to finish off the day in a good note. The guys were very patient and it paid off. Thanks again fellas, it was a pleasure. – Captain Jake Klinshaw
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 08/29/2017 – It’s too hot to stay at the house so once again we’re back at work and here’s Andy with a log barracuda this morning one of several along with a few calico bass. It’s the perfect time to go saltwater fishing in Southern California. Beautiful cool conditions on the ocean and we are here to help. We provide all the rods reels and tackle you will need for the day and we’re fishing Anacapa in Santa Cruz Island. We leave at 6 AM from the channel islands launch ramp Anglers interested in getting out fishing in the next week or so can call or text me at 818-439-1154.
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 08/25/2017 – Started out the day picking Ryan and Daren up at the dock at 6am. It was board shorts weather and lake like ocean conditions as we made the crossing to the islands. Started the morning out fishing yellowtail but had unfavorable conditions and a frustratingly large amount of fish around that would not bite. Tried for a couple hours but no luck on the game fish. The guys opted to switch gears so we shot across to Santa Cruz Island. Made a little bit of red crab for bait and started along the front side of the island. Stayed shallow and the guys proceeded to stay steady on just about every species. Bass, sheephead, whitefish, opaleye and some other miscellaneous species brought fun fights on light gear. Towards the last part of the day the guys wanted to try their luck at some rockfish. As we were already at the time to leave, I cleaned their fish as we drifted for rockfish and they managed to pick some nice quality chucks, Boccaccio, starry’s and Johnny bass before we called it a day and headed in. Fun day on the water fellas, hope to see you again. – Captain Jake Klinshaw
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 08/25/2017 – Here is John with a beautiful calico bass taken on the backside of Anacapa Island yesterday. Lots and lots of calico bass in shallow water fishing kelp stringers and small kelp points. Really fun with gorgeous weather as you can see in the background. We have trips available seven days a week fishing Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands. Anglers interested in booking their fishing trip with us on our 22 foot Ranger center console can call or text me at 818-439-1154 for more information.
Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 08/13/2017 – Today three sportfishing boat regulars came out on their very first private charter on the Bahia. Alex, Jimmy, and Shawn were very excited and full of anticipation upon me (Jake) picking them up from the dock. Decent channel crossing in the morning but a little to breezy to make it to Santa Cruz Island so we cut it short and ended up at Anacapa island. The guys opted to give it a good shot at catching a yellowtail in the morning before doing something else. Saw lots of them but couldn’t get one to eat a bait with a hook in it. Ended up with two bonito and two barracuda for those efforts. The guys then decided to switch gears and after promising their families a fish fry, decided it would be best to fish for rockfish and other table fare. We switched over, kept it less than 100 feet and had really decent rockfishing with nice quality and many species. The guys made short work of it and ended up with right about limits of rockfish, 10 sheephead, a few whitefish and a sculpin before saying they had plenty to feed everyone. For the last part of the day we switched up and fished bass in the boilers along the back of the island before calling it and heading in for home. Awesome day and even more awesome group of guys. Hope to see you again very soon! – Captain Jake Klinshaw

Saltwater Fishing Charter Report 07/16/2017 – James Lee came out solo with me today in search of a shot at a white seabass or a yellowtail. For the morning efforts he managed to land one yellowtail and lose another nicer one. Several other random by catches such as barracuda and calico bass were in the mix as well. Made a longer move for the afternoon and James was bent on a nicer grade yellowtail almost immediately upon arrival. Finished off the day fishing calico bass, whitefish and sheep head for table fare.
