2021 November Accurate 12-day Trip on the Red Rooster 3Gary Teraoka
Here is the trip report for the November 11-23, 2021 Accurate sponsored 12-day trip on the Red Rooster. In the past, this trip was run by Jack Nilsen, but with his passing (December 2020), Accurate Pro-Staff Leo Reihsen and myself (Gary Teraoka) ran the trip for Jack. I am sure that Jack and his side kick Del Marsh were looking over us from above so I hope we did a good job. We had a very good trip and caught a lot of fish.
Andy Cates and crew (Kevin, Jason, Andrew, Justin, Fernando) took us the Aliso Rocks, the Ridge and the lower banks (Potato Bank). At first, we were a little disappointed that the water temperature around Guadalupe Island got too cold and the 100# class yft left, but Andy made the right moves and we caught over 100 whaoo (30-50#) at Alios Rocks, next we caught plenty of 20-50# yft at the Ridge, then fished a kelp paddy for really nice size dorados, and the last 3 days fished for trophy yft at the Potato Bank. We ended up with 8 cows with one a super cow.
I will let the photos below tell the story to you.
