(949) 675-0550


Stayed late last night and topped off the trip with 7 fish over 100, 2 over 200.

Tackle recommendations for upcoming trips:
Bait set ups 25-50# We suggest 65# spectra backing to a 20-30 yard section of monofilament with a matching fluorocarbon leader of 25-50#

Hook size: #1-#4 circle or J hooks to match the smaller sardine we have had

A heavy outfit for night-time jigs 80-130+#
Knife Jigs, Flat Falls from 250-500g with 150-300# leaders

We were very ill prepared yesterday, only 4 anglers out of 30 had heavy set ups for night-time fishing, also we struggled in the flyline bait department as well. Just another day in Newport.

If you would like to go fishing with us please BOOK ONLINE or call (949) 675-0550 to get in on the action.
