Tuna, Yellowtail, Dorado in close to So Cal

Written to Type O Negative “I don’t want to be me”

I don’t want ahi,

I don’t want to ahi he

I don’t want to be,

Be a Dorado.

It’s great to see posts like this on Facebook about exotics in local waters. See God provides, as one door closes another opens. Yellowtail, yellowfin tuna, dorado being caught between here and Catalina. All while Mexico now prohibits bluefin tuna catches, see below.

I lobster hooped with Chris and Bobby  last season, they really know how to pull those ropes, I tried on my own but little to show. Now they are catching tuna and yellowtail while I sit at work.

El Gringo

El Gringo at Bass Pro Shops

On Saturday March 1st I join the “El Gringo” Phil Friedman Outdoors crew for the morning at the Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga, California. We arrived at 5 am, set up and opened the doors at 6 am to a large crowd for a taping of the Phil Friedman Outdoors new Spanish show on AM 690.  I got to host the raffle during the show and everyone won prizes from overnight, 3/4. twilight fishing trips, fishing gear, and much more. At 7 am we all went out and shopped, getting a $10 gift card for every $40 spent. I got my new anchor, new trout terminal gear, and some sabiki rigs. I got to meet Marlon Meade, Gilbert Hernandez, and many more. Fellow fishing bloggers SoCal Salty and Jackpot Jimmy Bass also joined the fun.

Tanning, I mean fishing, at Irvine Lake

I headed out to fish rainbow trout last Sunday accompanied by my son Dennis, my cousin Tim Deal, and friend Mark Olson.

This show you cover up for fishing, SPF 1000, with Mark Olson

A planned later than normal start got us from home to the Irvine Lake tackle shop and out the boat ramp in no time, no wait, well rested, and anticipatory of a live-well full of rainbow trout. Motoring across the lake to join the fellow Harbour Rod and Reel Club members, the contrasts of the cool, foggy Huntington Beach to sunny, hot Silverado Canyon sunk in, more like burned in, and after a while without any bites, a day of easy limits fishing was out window.

Andrew’s custom sunshade, notice the zip ties, never leave home without them.

Instead, a long and hot day crammed in a small boat with few fish was on our minds. “A hungry fisherman is a frustrated and angry fisherman”, so out came the snacks, fresh fruit, PB&J and turkey sandwiches, chips, and cool drinks all set our fish- less minds at ease. A few short moves around the drought stricken, low water, crowded lake and a few pit stops, I got a helpful tip from a limited- out fellow boater that led us to fishing outside the west shore boat launch.

No so crowded, low lake

No so crowded, low lake

Upon arrival to the supposed primo spot, the splashing of a freshly hooked trout from a neighboring boat lifted our spirits, then the tight lines and ripping drag from Dennis’ kids spin cast set the boat in a frenzy, as Dennis fought the trout, and a log size rainbow trout appeared under the boat then a few more pulls and the fish was in the net, Bite- ON maize dosed Berkley power bait fooled him to capture.

Bite- ON scent Mark won at the HRRC trout seminar

A short bit later, the runt of the school fell for my Bite-ON maize dosed chartreuse body orange headed Berkley mice tail. Our efforts didn’t run shallow, as the last boat on the lake afforded us picture time, an unrushed end to the day, easy drive home to dinner ready to eat, thanks Heidi.

HRRC Trout Seminar Success

 

CIMG6545-SMILE
(From left to right), Andrew Deal, Sergio Fainsztein, David Smith, Eddie Williams, Tony Williams, Wes Wright, and Larry Moore.

When I joined the Harbour Rod and Reel Club I had no idea the level of involvement I would commit myself to, last year I was and continue to be webmaster for the site hrrconline.com, this year I am also taking care of seminars.

For the trout seminar I reached out to Tony Williams with Bite-ON about the seminar he was all for it, got back to me right away, and then delivered on a Irvine Lake based seminar, perfect prep for our club trout fishing event this Sunday.

The radio outdoor expedition (AM 830 Sat 5-7 am) show host Sergio Fainsztein and crew joined the Bite- ON pro staff for the seminar and Q&A for everything trout, and more. Tony Williams and Wes Wright taught about shore fishing, boat fishing, trolling techniques, drop shooting, best colors, best jigs, lures, way to rig power bait, best line, best rod, reel to use, etc.

The food was enjoyed, pizza, salad, and drinks consumed, plenty of great fishing conversation and plans of attack discussed. Also got to meet some future fishing friends.

More pictures and the club website at here

Come out and join us for events, seminars, and the many parties the club has throughout the year.
