If you are looking for a fishing destination that has a good population of fish in a very rustic setting there is no better place than Cedros Island. This small gem in the fishing...

The right tool for the job. By Captain Darren Dorris

Most of us can truly understand the concept of the right tool for the job, but do we always follow it? I am sure many of you (me included) have used a butter knife as a screwdriver, or anything other than a hammer to bang in a nail. We know there are the right tool for those jobs, but we use what’s on hand or what’s convenient; the silverware drawer is closer than the tool box, right?  I know I...

Holidays in the Northeast by Mike Prete

The Author with a nice Holiday Stripe Bass Happy Holidays everyone. It's that time of year in the Northeast when fishing has slowed to a crawl. The migrating saltwater fish are all but gone.

“Your only as good as your Network” By Darren Dorris

Shades of Blue on the East Cape with Mark Rayor

Now thats a Blue Marlin.   The bite down south dried up so there are not many footballs. Tuna are on porpoise schools 20 to 30 miles off shore from north of Punta Pescadero spreading south to below Los Frailes. It has not been hard to find porpoise but only about one out of ten schools are holding tuna. Then when the right one is found the fish are very spooky. Kite fishing has been deadly when conditions are right but there...
