We had two trips scheduled this past weekend. On Saturday we fished the Jackspot with hopes of catching a big shark. We passed through the inlet around 6:15 am heading towards the Jackspot. The seas were a little sporty and we took our time making the 19 mile run. Upon arrival we deployed the chum bag and set up to drift. The wind and waves were not cooperating so we decided to anchor. After several hours with no shark bites we decided to called it a day and head in. Even though we did not catch any sharks it was a great day on the ocean with new friends.
On Sunday we left the slip at 4:00 am and headed towards Massey's Canyon. Arrived at the spot around 5:15 am and within minutes we had our first bite. The short story is we had 7 bites, 5 came tight and all were lost due to leader failure. We were using a 25lb fluoro carbon leader attached to our circle hooks and main line. Saw schools of yellow fin breaking the water throughout the day and had them coming up behind the boat eating chunks of butter fish. Another great day spent on the ocean!
