Calstar 6-day Red Rooster III Trip ReportGary Teraoka
We had another great trip, with Calstar Rods the primary sponsor and Accurate Reels, Izorline and Baja Fish Gear secondary sponsors. We fished Jeronimo Island the first day and found near limits of 20# yellowtails. The dropper loop method also caught (and released) four Black Sea Sass. Moving on to Benitos Island and we were able to plunk away at the yellowfin tuna. Flyline sardine was the most successful method for the tuna. Made some bait at Cedros and back to Benitos. We did troll up two wahoo (50#). We also had the opportunity to see a fish of a lifetime. It was a giant black sea bass in the neighborhood of 400#. The shadow at color was big beyond belief and when it just popped up to the surface, it was OMG. Check out the photo (Nick is a really big guy). The last day of fishing was when Gary Sax used the dropper loop to hook and land the jackpot yellowtail. Below are trip photos including daily prize winners and everyone having fun, enjoying the great weather and new friends. Oh, we caught quite a few fish on top of all that. Thank you to the following companies for supporting this trip. Tackle Specialties (Calstar Rods and blank), Accurate Fishing Products (pliers/sheath/lanyard), Izorline (spectra, fluoro and mono), Baja Fish Gear ($50 gift cards and clothing), Salas Lures, Bob Smith Industries (Instaflex spectra connection glue), Sportsman Seafood (fish processing). We are scheduled to run this same trip next year, so if you want to be part of the fun next year, give Christina a call at the Red Rooster 3 office.
A special thanks to Captain Derek Waldman and his crew. You guys did a fantastic job.
