0ffshore Venice LA Fishing Report: 10-30-2009

I fished a couple of days last week offshore. Still using Capt hoops boat but hopefully mine will be ready soon. I had Mike Barrett and his dad plus a friend on sunday. WE started off in close catching a bunch of blacks on live bait and poppers. The only excitement in the morning was hooking up a white marlin on a frenzy popper. He gave us one jump before he threw the hooks. After that I rolled south to some deeper rigs and that was the ticket. As I was putting a live bait out Mike cast his popper and hooked up on a 100 pound yf right away. WE fought him about 30 minutes and put it in the box. Set back up and pretty soon doubled up with one on a livie and one on a popper. Both were quality 80 pound fish. That was the end of the topwater bite although we did put two more good fish in the boat on live bait. For a total of 5 yf. On an interesting note I was fishing one live bait with 60 flouro and one with 80 mono. All of the live bait bites were on 80 mono.

I fished on wed with Paul Groves and his friend Allen. We started off looking for the shrimpboats. There was only one problem as there werent any shrimpboats out there. Had to make a change to plan b now as we headed long to the floaters. Got out there and made some bait although it was difficult. The first fish in the boat was a 75 pound yf. We missed a couple bites and then added 2 more schoolies to the box. I was out of bait then so I started chumming and put another schoolie in the box. At this point I hadnt had a hit on flouro again so I switched both rods to 80 pound mono leader. I made some more bait and then reset the livies out and doubled up this time on straight mono to end up the day with a limit of 6 yf.
