GCLA hit the Colnett once again. We headed out Friday night on a trip that rescheduled due to last weekends foul weather.... The weather forcast was great...The ocean was grease and the ride was smooth all the way there....I always pray to the fish Gods on the way to Colnett for a shot at the Yellows, but again, no luck on the exotics this time. We threw a couple scoops on the high spot to encourage a bite and Fred and I worked the yo-yo solid for the first hour and a half....Frank wasn't seeing anything on the meter, but I kept trying until my shoulder just gave out.....then it was the dropper loop for the remainder... The sun came out early and everyone started stripping off the layers....It felt so nice to feel the sun on my skin for a change...should have broke out the sunscreen when I saw everyone else doing it...oh well. By the end of the trip I was the same color as the Giant Reds we caught all day. I struggled for the first few drifts....With a pound I would hit the bottom and instantly come up...Current was ripping for sure as everyone else reported. Frank told us we were drifting at 2 knots!!!! Craziness...I scoped out to make contact with the bottom again and EVERY FREAKIN TIME I would hang the bottom.....We were drifting so fast there was no chance of popping it off either...Between Fred and I, I think we donated 15 16oz sinkers to the big blue and then bought another 7 off of Frank....Frank sold 37 pounds of lead by the end of the trip...Jeez...Expensive freaking Lings!!! We had a split JP on this trip because over half ended up being guys because a lot of ladies couldn't make the rescheduled date...I secured the Ladies JP with a Ling that went around 15 pounds. Josh took the men's side with a beast close to 20....We ended up with 43 lings and easy limits of consistantly huge Reds in the 5-8 pound range and a bunch of whitefish and misc. rock fish in the mix. Even 2 or 3 sheephead! We also caught two "Mexican Reds" (the one on top in the pic below) I think they are just boccacios, but the crew said they are Mexican reds....Any input?? I laid it next to a red for comparison.... Meals were off the hook once again...French toast and breakfast burritos in the manana, chicken fajita burritos at lunch, and veal picatta for supper with steamed asparagas....TO DIE FOR!!! and my favorite cookies and cream ice cream for dessert!!! Special thanks to Mondo for sneaking me all the big chunks of cookies!!!! The Dominator has quickly become one of my all time favorite boats for sure....Not just because the boat is so comfy and wide and almost every bunk is a double.....but the crew is so killer cool it's like being with family. They really treat you right and with Frank and Randy at the wheel, that boat just kills the fish... Thanks to Frank, Randy, Mondo, Paulie, and Kevin for another fantastic trip and fat full sacs once again!!
