My son wanted to get me out on the water for an early Father's day gift, I'm kinda set in my way's, my son likes to try "new" things, so we ended up on a boat to fish Catalina. Now, I'm not gonna (BAD) mouth anyone or thing, and the boat was large/spacious/n/comfortable, kinda unique it had a rounded stern which was kinda neat! We had a good bait tank full of some really nice sardines, the deck-hand cut up a box of squid on the way out, we had about 30 passengers on board, (not the hard-core fisherman type) you understand! Anytime i'm out on the water "fishing" i'm hav'ing a GOOD time, and I was really hoping to catch a nice yellow-tail, so I fly-lined sardine's all day long without even a nibble, most all the other ( i don't really wanna call'em anglers) "people" were fishing dropper-loops-n-weights catching 8"-to-10" white-fish. All in all it was a pretty sorry trip! But I had fun flipping 'dines and dreaming of a screaming drag!
