The Gambler was out on a 36 hour canyon trip that left Weds morning. The crew and passengers were optimistic. The weather report had diminished from 30 knots and 9ft seas to 25 and 7 foot seas. Nobody had been out all week due to the weather. The satellite temp charts didn't show any good breaks but Capt Bob was hoping to see some mahi before sunset and Longfin at day-break.

We made a few drifts near a sea bouy to start and we caught some jacks. Tried on some pots as we made our way along the canyon wall. Some guys jigged for tuna as we went. But the pots were sparse with life. Just before sundown, the wind cranked up top 35 knots and it the seas got rough. Anchored up on the west wall by 7PM and hoped for a dusk bite. The wind did not let up till about 3AM. Near day break, we saw some readings and a few mahi were caught along with a couple of small bluefins that we had to release. Tried to wait it out for a bit, as Capt Bob saw marks at 50 and 200 feet.

The seas were still pretty big as we picked up anchor and headed for a deep water wreck, hoping to catch some pollock. We ran for a couple hours to get to the wreck. Anchored up over it. Not the best conditions for that either, as the lines ran to the bow with a hard current against the wind. The fishermen managed just a few bigger sea bass but it was dissapointing.

We are looking to make another trip leaving the night of Nov 6th. As always, Capt Bob and the Mighty Crew of the Gambler will do their best. Hopefully the longfin will move to the edge by then. We have availability for that trip if you are interested.

Our Striper trips begin on November 1st. The striper schedule will be 7:30 till 2:30, everyday except November 7th (when we will be offshore) and on Thanksgiving, we will run our traditional 1/2 day trip, 7:30 till 12:30 so that we can all be home for striper stuffed turkey.

Hope to see you on board

Capt Bob and Crew
