I was on the Freedom out of 22nd st in san pedro .The day before report was 94 yft for 21 . I got on after they sold to all of the reservations. Making me #31. There was 32 paid on the trip . In the morning the sacks went to 40 . The remaining 8 was made up of the off duty crew , the cook , one of the boat owners and such. I dont like crowds . Was still a coin toss at 31 . But I went . 150.00 + 37 for jpot and permit . he metered a spot at 6am and we stayed on that spot , minus drifting , ALL day . A 6 hour stop . There were always 3 fish hooked up . I got 2 on 15# and 2 on 20# . lost 1 on 15 after 45 min at really deep color , and 1 on 20. missed a few hooksets . ! guy got 10 . Myself and 4 other guys in the bow all got 4 or 5 ea . lots of 3's . few 2's and even a few with 1 . Report said 6 dorado but I only saw 3 . They may have thrown them back , really small. but even with 40 + / --- fishing everyone knew what they were doing , kept their heads out of their a** and a on the ball crew that kicked butt ! for the money and the short drive it was the Sh*t ! Might be taking my gf on there soon if the bite picks up again .
