Trip Report: Bassin’ With Dan Hernandez

Sunday, the kids and I spent a few hours on the water with TV fishing host, Dan Hernandez.  Dan took us out on the 31′ ChrisCraft  he uses for his private charters.  We didn’t venture far…staying around Los Alamitos Harbor, nearby to where we had fished a couple weeks back on the Enterprise.  It was the first time Juliana had been on a private boat, so I didn’t want to push it in terms of Juj and potential seasickness.  It was really exciting for her to sit up top (and wave to all the people as we passed by).  The trip was a great way for her to cap her birthday week.

I joked with Jake that he was pinhead for the trip.  Jake’s comment was simply, “No rent rods!”

Conditions weren’t great for fishing…water temp had dropped dramatically into the mid-50’s.  Final tally was: 4 white croaker, 3 sand bass, 2 bat rays, and a lizard fish 😉  Mostly, it was just a nice day spent with friends and family, on the water.  Thanks Dan!

Editorial Note – Dan has a show filming trip coming up this Friday 7/20 on one of our favorite boats, the Clemente.  They’re doing a 3/4 day trip out of Dana Wharf.  The calico bite has been great down there this summer.  Get on and book your ride at Dan’s site here.
