We ran down to moss landing this morning to do some salmon fishing. We got into action immediately. The fish stayed with the boat all day. Our guests ended up with 8 big salmon to 18lbs. We lost as many as we caught. Light gear on the surface. Truly a world class salmon bite. And…

Halibut fishing continues to be the favorite…

Another great day halibut fishing on the Taylor Gene. Today we caught 9 halibut to 15lbs. In addition to the limits of halibut, we added a couple real nice lingcod to the mix. Come get some while they’re biting! The weather is great and the fishing is better. Air temp was 75’ with water temp…

Family fun in the sun today! While fishing near Capitola we landed 3 nice Halibut, a few Lingcod and some big brown rockfish. We then turned our energy over to the sharks where we encountered 4 great whites. It was very exciting and something this family will not soon forget. The weather was sunny and…

Halibut is on the menu!!!

commercial halibut fishing 3

Often the beginning of summer is slow for us as people prepare for the end of the school year and begin planning their family summer adventures but that doesn’t mean we ain’t fishing. The sad part is we’re commercial harvesting your potential catch! Yesterday we landed 7 of these beauties up to 25lbs and we’re…

Lots of catching on this “catch and release” trip..

Chris with Ling

Our 6 anglers gave salmon a good try this morning but not being able to find any salmon anywhere or any being reported, we opted to try the rockfish. This turned out to be a great decision. Our guests boated 60 nice olive, black and blue Rockfish to 3lbs. Plus the crew had limits as…

Salmon bite slows, Lingcod appears to be the golden ticket!!

bachelor group

Initially our bachelor party wanted salmon but due to the high volume of commercial salmon fishing the bite really slowed. (Expected to pick up next week) So we decided to go out and hit the deep rockfish grounds. We caught some beautiful lingcod to 18 lbs and quality copper rockfish. Tried for salmon on our…

Another banner day on the Taylor-Gene. After pulling huge rockfish up two at a time we switched over for lingcod. We were lucky enough to catch 4 big ones to 15#. When the wind came up we switched into salmon mode for the ride home. We trolled and caught a hog. Biggest fish of the…

Salmon turn elusive so we turn to plan B..

After grinding on the salmon grounds for four hours we decided to pull the plug and go try for some rockfish. So we came back down the hill and caught a few real nice fish including a vermillion and a lingcod. Then off to the crab grounds where we pulled pots for enough crab for…
