    Just got off the phone with Fisherman's Landing and the count is legit! They fished at Geronimo Island... :eyepopping:

    was that a "5 day trip" in Mexcio? If so, then its easily believable.

    LA Rod&Reel Club: It is club policy to release all releasable calico bass on ALL of their charters.

    The skiff trips usually get into good YT bites in addition to the calicos. These trips were started a few years back and are growing in popularity with a number of boats. There are some 8-day trips targetting calicos, also...but I think 20-40# yellows on the plastic in the kelp from a skiff might be an extra incentive/attraction.

    WSB are definitely a bonus! The schools off Baja start at 20# and go up from there. if...WHEN I win the lottery, I think I'll give a "skiff-trip" a shot.

    I aggree with Strawberry. A 5 day trip targeting Calicos seems like a waste even if you do get into WSB. If I had enough time and money for 5 days fishing, I would target the Tuna for sure.

    I was the chartermaster on that trip and yes, it was five days (3 1/2 of fishing) and the load was nine anglers which gave everyone two bunks.

    Yes, the count was very accurate BUT...we did not fish Geronimo Island that much. We were adajcent at the Sacramento Reef. I got nine of the 65 sea bass. Crew member Chaz Govan made up a two hook dropper loop (sinker at the bottom) and put a sardine on each of the two hooks. He wound up JACK POLING two white bass on the line over his right shoulder. If you didn't see it, you won't believe it.

    Sorry for the years delay but I haven't checked this forum in years.
