Hello anglers-



There is nothing I enjoy more than sportfishing- hunting down tuna schools with the sonar, approaching kelps and hoping there is a big school that wants to bite. Tuna, yellowtail and Dorado boiling on chum, watching you guys hook, fight and hopefully land a big fish is just awesome. Sportfishing is in my blood; always has been and always will be.



Despite all this I am changing course starting June 21, 2016. The Joanna is available for charter until/including June 20. There is a limited entry commercial fishery I am entering. There are only 17 transferable permits in California for this fishery and I am incredibly lucky to be getting one of the 17 permits. This decision is purely financial.



Looking ahead, my plan is to buy a second boat. One for commercial and one for sportfishing. The Joanna, while ideal as a six pack, will work but is not so well suited for this commercial fishery. The permit is very expensive so I will be using the Joanna for the 2016 commercial fishing season. I will be back into sportfishing, hopefully in 2017, with either the Joanna or another boat. If it's another boat it will be another exceptional boat- superior to any boats in its class.



Last year, the 2015 season, was fantastic and our first two offshore overnight trips (May 25, then May 26) were tremendous. May 25 we had 4 anglers catch 7 Bluefin to 121 pounds, May 26th we had 3 anglers catch 3 Bluefin to 70 pounds and 3 Yellowfin from 45-50 pounds.



I know many of you typically book July, Aug, Sept- which are usually great months. If 2016 is anything remotely like 2015 then May and June could be awesome, again. We are legal to take Bluefin in Mexico now, unlike last year, and I expect another great and early Bluefin season. Like last year, Yellowtail fishing is already really good at Colonet and up the beach to the Coronado Islands.



I hope you guys will book April, May or prior to June 21st. March and April (assuming you all have passports) is often great fishing on the anchor along the Mexican coast line for yellowtail, Calico Bass, rockfish. [we need passports to fish within 12 miles of the Mexican coast]. Starting in April we have a chance at offshore fish (primarily Bluefin) and if they are not around we have the Mexican coastline as a great alternative.



I suggest a 1.5 day or 2.5 day and lets go fishing. Remember, for the 2016 season, the last day to fish on the Joanna is June 20th.



I hope to see you all early this year.



Sincerely,

Chris

H&M Landing shared Chief Sportfishing's post. ... See MoreSee Less

Hey gang the mighty Chief had its own Super Bowl this weekend with Reds verses Yellows and the winner was the customer! We landed 111 Yellowtail in the 15 to 25lb range, 155 quality Reds (limits), 5 Lingcod and 39 assorted rock cod for 31 anglers fishing in flat calm seas. The Chief is sold out for next weekend and chartered for the last 2 weekends of February but still have room on our March 11th open party trip and you can call H&M landing at (619) 222-1144 or book on line at www.hmlanding.com. Don’t forget the Fred Hall show coming to long Beach March second thru the sixth and Chris will be in the H&M booth all 5 days.
