Trip Report: Redondo Special – Day In Pics

I tweeted/posted on Monday that the Redondo Special almost scored a boat limit of White Seabass (WSB) on their morning run.  That afternoon, they logged another 8 of the elusive ghosts.  Seeing that report, I felt like it was imperative that I get on that boat yesterday morning.

Well sometimes you’re the dog and other times you’re the tree.  Here’s the countRedondo’s 3/4 day boat, the Tradition, got 13 yesterday.  The Special’s afternoon run got 4.  I viewed a few private boaters score on the WSB too.  Our boat…nada.  What can I say?  I had 3 big hookups.  First one was a HUGE bat ray…probably 4 feet across wingtip to wingtip.  I fought it for 20 minutes easy.  Thanks to Ryan for his assistance.  When we saw it was a ray, we cut the line.  The other 2 broke off before we saw what they were.  The third one was definitely another ray, BUT (and I hate to say it) I think the second one was a WSB…it had head shakes.  That’s how it goes.  The white seabass are definitely around.  Been seeing a lot in the counts for both Catalina, up in the Channel Islands and obviously close in here at Rocky Point.  The limit goes up at midnight tonight from 1 to 3.  Get out now for your shot at the elusive ghost.  Tight lines!

Quick note – Redondo Sportfishing now has it’s own landing office again, so call ahead to the office and not the individual captain’s phones as previously reported.
