After working 13 days in a row without a day off, I was in need of some serious fishing therapy. Been keeping an eye on the weather along with the counts and things finally aligned. There were 16 of us including Flipper and I who jumped on board the Pacific Dawn for what turned out to be one of the most epic halibut and seabass slays ever. The ride out until we got behind the islands was pretty bumpy but the boat handled it well. We woke up on the anchor around 5am and wandered out onto the deck. The only action so far was 3 seals and no game fish. About 6:30am things finally started coming to life. About every 10 minutes or so, we would get bit and hang either a nice seabass or halibut. The seabass were mixed grade anywhere from 12 - 45 pounds. The halibut were all monsters. When the dust finally settled, we ended up with limits of seabass (48) along with 18 halibut. The Mirage was right next to us as well putting the wood to them. They are on a 2 day trip right now and already have limits again this morning. I'm hoping the bite and weather holds for our trip Friday night because if it does, you guys are in for a real treat. Both Flipper and I ended up with easy limits of seabass and a few nice halibut to boot. My largest halibut was in the top 3 for jackpot so it was brought back to the landing whole to weigh. However I was beat by two others that came in just about 50 pounds, while mine sat at like 45. Either way, it was a personal best for me so I'm stoked. The Pacific Dawn is a top notch operation and I highly recommend it to everyone. Captain Mike ran the boat yesterday and did an excellent job. Also the crew and food were great as well. No complaint's whatsoever, I had a blast! Cheers!
