Spirit Gets Skinnies On Ridge, Above

Bill Roecker

Temperatures are cooling on The Ridge, reported Spirit of Adventure skipper Brian Evans November 12.

"It's down to about 77 degrees," he told dock reporter Bill Roecker at the H&M Landing scales.

Evans had just finished an 11-day limited load trip with chartermaster Bobby Trask of Yucaipa and 14 other anglers.

"It was a flat calm trip," noted Trask. "We only had wind on one day. We got our wahoo early, and we got good yellowtail above San Pablo. Then we went offshore looking for yellowfin.

"We found 'em on black porpoise, and we had lots of stops for two days. About half our wahoo came on bait and the rest were on jigs. For trolling, they seemed to like the black medium-sized Marauder and one in green mackerel finish."

Walter Smith of Emmett, ID won first place for a 55-pound wahoo he bagged with a sardine. Chartermaster Trask won second place for a 52-pounder. Gary Hjermstead won third place for a 47-pound skin, but wasn't available for a photo.
