    Hey Anglers,

    The rockfish opener here at Ventura Landing was WFO. This entire week has seen great fishing for REDS, CHILLIS, CHUCKS, and SHEEPHEAD. Between the Island Spirit 3/4 day trips, and the Pacific Dawn overnight trips... we've already seen better bottom fishing the first week of 2011 than we saw for the better part of all of 2010.

    With the new landing opening... locals are very excited and we are also seeing alot of new faces. Our tackle shop is now well stocked with everything you will need for early spring fishing. We will be bringing in more inventory as the season progresses keep up with the target species.

    Hopefully this summer will bring another good yellowtail season, and we see the white seabass show in force again on the beach just outside our home harbor (ventura harbor). We are running daily trips departing at 6am on the island spirit, and nightly departures at 10pm for overnight trip aboard the pacific dawn. The dawn is also running monday special departing at 4am "west end santa cruz specials".
