We will be fishing with the pioneers of Baja mothership fishing aboard the Tony Reyes of Tony Reyes Sportfishing Tours out of Orange, CA.

The Tony Reyes is a 107’ steel hull boat with air conditioned staterooms. Your catch will be well taken care of using theirice hold, flash freezer and commercial vacuum packing machine capable of sealing 5 bags at once. The Tony Reyes has 6 heads, 4 showers and a modern galley to enjoy your meals.

The pangas are situated with live bait tanks, rod holders, ice chests and a fish holds. With 3 anglers and a guide per panga, you never have to worry about rubbing elbows and not having enough space to fight fish.

April FWF Tournament Winner

April 18th, 2014 Posted by Kayak Fishing, Uncategorized 0 comments on “April FWF Tournament Winner”

The 1st Fishing with Friends (FWF) Tournament of 2014 took place April 18th.  We had a great turnout.  15 Anglers showed up primed and ready to fish.  Everyone wanting to fish live bait was a little discouraged, thinking that the only bait available was going to be the same MONSTER sardines that they’d carried for the previous week.  Luckily, there were some well cured anchovies, about 4-5″.  The sand bass loved them!  The pipeline was very productive, but the guys fishing the point and on shore off Doheny had to fish hard to churn up a bite.

The winning fish for the day was caught by Melissa!  A very nice 4lb Sand Bass.  So congrats go to her!

Jackson(Dana Point’s finest boat hoist operator/culinary master) cooked a great Chicken Adobo to go along with all the great other foods that all the participants brought.

Thank you for all that showed up and we look forward to seeing everyone in May for the next FWF Tournament.
