We had an epic fishing trip on June 14 fishing behind Anacapa Island while the rest of the fleet were chasing seabass in Pt. Hueneme. No one or another boat could be seen and we had constant hookups all day long in 63 degree beautiful blue water. Pictured is Marc Cargnel with a 42-pound yellowtail. We ended up with 3 halibut, two seabass, one keeper lingcod, two calicos and a trophy yellowtail — all caught on live squid. Boat was the MegaByte owned by Rudy Cargnel, Mark's brother on left. I'm holding the nice halibut I caught. Best trip of my 52 year life!

I have been reading in WON about all the big fish being caught at South Lake, so I decided to take a two day trip and see if I can get a piece of the action. I arrived early Tuesday (6-12-12) morning and got a half-day boat at South Lake. I headed towards the back of the lake and started working the inlets. Within the first hour on my second cast with a Red Thomas Bouyant, as soon as my lure hit the water I hooked into this 6.26-pound rainbow trout. I have been fishing South Lake since I was 8-years-old and this is my biggest rainbow yet. He put up an awesome fight.

Got in a few trips on the kayak during the recent coastal WSB bites. Caught a fish on each trip three consecutive weekends. First fish was a 44 pounder at 52" inches, second fish was 36 pounds and 51 inches (skinny) and the third went 51 inches and 43 pounds. Friends and family are eating good for a while! I got a little spoiled on this run... sure beats burning the gas running to the islands!
