Tony Reyes Trip Report and Fish Count for October 23rd – 28th, 2011

October 31, 2011 – 11:27 am

The weather cooled down some and it was a comfortable trip. We fished San Lorenzo Island for a few days and it was good with plenty of 15-20 pound yellowtail. The live bait was plentiful in San Francisquito Bay and so we loaded up on it. The dorado seemed to have moved to another area, one with warmer water.

One of our guides caught a massive 110 pound gulf grouper in Salsipuedes Island, boyaa! Those guides are amazing anglers, they live, eat and breathe it, I suppose it makes sense.

Wednesday and Thursday the wind blew from the North and put a little more challenge into our fishing techniques. We ended up at The Enchanted Islands catching some sierra mackerel.

We limited out on yellowtail and its so much fun catching those glorious fish. Watching the birds feed on the bait fish and chasing those boils is so much fun! You are so excited, you cant wait to get your jig into the churned up water where the bait are and bam, you are hooked up!

  3. Apparently they didn’t fish for them this trip, but they are a blast to catch.

  4. Wow, this was an awesome trip ! Sliding up to a square mile bait ball with hundreds of yellowtail underneath was amazing. Jigs, bait, and a bare hook. W.F.O. on the yellows. Tony Reyes treated us first class. No matter what time I got up, the man was on point. Does this guy sleep ? Really took care of his customers. We will be back in 2012. Boat #5. Q.T should have his patent by then. ( joke only the boat would know )
