    The Gold Coast Lady Anglers had their first trip of the year, starting off the 2011 Season aboard the Dominator out of Point Loma Sportfishing for a 1 1/2 day fishing Colnett. We hoped there would be decent weather, good times and a shot at the yellows.....well.....2 out of 3 ain't bad.....​

    We left the dock a bit early to get a head start on the early morning yellows. Normal scene, a bunch of women, some alcohol, and a whole bunch of food. I nibbled for a while, tied on an iron and hit the rack.​

    The ride over was bitchen....slept like a baby and woke up to the sound of the motors backing down. We settled on the high spot and threw a couple scoops. Once Frank told us to let 'em go it was yo-yo central along the rail. 24 of us felt the burn as we tried to get the yellows to go...A half hour later the ladies started to tire and one by one, the jigs came off and the dropper loops got tied on. First fish on was a ling and then the fishing got epic....Whitefish came under the boat and were so fiesty that they were eating the iron and sardines... A couple of gals switched over to the squid strips and slaughtered them. The rest of us targeted the lings. ​

    The day continued on and drift after drift we put the wood to lots of big lings, huge reds, a few grouper and starries, and even a sheephead! ​

    The ladies had a blast, even as the seas started getting sloppy. They toughed it out and stayed at the rail in rough seas and wind, one even took a hook through the back of her hand and Frank had to remove it...That was pretty cool.​

    Fred was a gent as usual and helped one of the ladies having a hard time getting bit. Fred got bit and called her over. He handed her the rod and she struggled winding it in....it was a big fish for sure. ​

    Frank grabbed her a fighting belt and she kept winding away.....this was her catch (It was one of the biggest reds I have ever seen)!!! and boy was she grateful.​

    Anyway...limits of Lings and Reds with a bunch of whities and a few misc. bankies, grouper, etc....​

    I ended up with the JP fish...a fat girl that weighed in at just over 20 pounds.​

    I can not say enough about the crew...Frank, Randy, Anthony, Mondo....you guys are so awesome!!! The greatest group of guys and a pleasure to be around. Outstanding customer service even when dealing with a boat full of needy ladies...you guys are the best!!! Thanks for taking such great care of us!​

    Dude, What up Nate!....Mary and Flipper came over and we tag-teamed dinner. We dredged the fish in dijon mustard, egg washed it, then dipped it in a mixture of panco, toasted unsweetened coconut, and coarse chopped macadamia nuts...quick sear in a pan and into the oven for 10 minutes....preceeded by a big salad and followed by Marie Calanders pies and a video of fishing at the Rocks...What a fantastic evening!!!!!!! We are fortunate and LIFE IS GOOD!!!
