I took my brother who is visiting from Texas for our first trip of the year- going 5 for 6. We fished from 5:30 pm to about 9:30pm. We setup around 70 ft heading north into the wind and 4-5 footers. After a wave went over the bow on my 21ft boat we decided it was best to go south with the waves :eek: With a much easier ride we had our first hit on the downrigger with a mag Blue Dolphin 10 ft down 70 back in about 50 ft of water. It seemed like a decent fish, but after 20 seconds or so it ran at us and we lost it.

We stayed in the 45 foot to 52 foot range the rest of the night and ran along the mud line for most of the trip.

Around 7pm we got a double on a dipsey and a 3 color. The dipsey got a laker with a Carmel dolphin and was set at 2 with about 50 ft out. The 3 color got a king on a Northport Nailer glow dolphin. Both fish were around 4 or 5 lbs.

About 20 minutes later we got another king on the dipsey with the Carmel dolphin this one was about 9lbs. At about 8pm we turned it around and headed back into the wind to make it back to the piers. Just after the sunset I started to pull the lines and when i popped the downrigger there was a fat stubby laker on the mag Blue Dolphin. It actually gave a decent fight and as soon we got it in the net, our other dipsey started peeling line. This one was set at 2 with 50ft out and had a Blue Chilly Willy on. This one was a king, probably around 14 lbs and made my brother miss living in Michigan even more.

We both had a great time and considering the time of year and waves out there, it was much more than I expected.

Thanks for the replies and setting me straight on the browns guys. A little embarassing but as you probably can tell, I am still a bit green. :)

Nothing to be embarrassed about. In fact you taught me something with your report;)
