The past week was a lot of fun with great waves at San Quintin, and new found spots and some great fishing as well with white seabass, yellowtail and more,.
On Friday, Dec. 9, 2005, with almost a week with no swell so to speak we, Oscar, "The Birdman" and Sharky, headed south of San Quintin in search of some top-to-bottom waves. We got it! It was a really hard-to-find spot hidden from view and we had no idea what was out there. There were big set waves that would suck water of the reef and leave huge boils all through the lineup revealing dozens of rocks that were just barely below the surface but the waves were fast and hollow!
On Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005, The Froggys Annual Cold Water Classic, hosted by long time buddy Steve Massey, owner of Froggys Bar & Grill in P.B., was a fishing blast! Saturday fishing out of San Quintin started out great with with Mike Davee landing a nice white seabass on a white iron while jigging under a school of bait near "Arroyo Hondo." There were also lots of good sized Calico Bass and Turd Rollers as well as some midsize bonito. The barracuda were of the larger models so we had our work cut out for us although it was like fishing on a boat full of deckhands so I just kicked back the whole time!
I had the two 26 super pangas out fishing with Oscar and Chris "lightweight" Pierce and their own crews.
Day 2 of the Cold Water Classic started off quite a bit slower with some of the players suffering from a rare Mexican virus called G.M.B., "Gringo Muy Borracho," so with the whole crew aboard the Parker we had a full house with 7 of us total. Well actually 6, because Pierce went along as baggage down in the v-berth serving no purpose whatsoever. The rest of the crew was: Michal Davee, Darien Debellis, "Silent Pete", Steve Massey and his friend Greg.
We decided to go fishing north and see if we could find some yellowtail and then do some bottom fishing for some Rockcod and Lingcod. At the 15 fathom we were welcomed by breezing yellowtails of which we landed 2 on iron. Greg and myself got the yellows. We also did pretty good on some quality Reds and assorted rock fish.
On Saturday afternoon the swell was getting huge. We saw some guys coming from Isla San Martin with a Jet Ski and tow board and they said they went out there but thought it was too big!
