Gambler Fishing

November 13, 2017:
On the Gambler, Capt. Bob said there was some nice action on over the weekend, with life all around the boat — bait, birds, fish and even a whale stopped by for a visit, he said. The boat is targeting striped bass daily now, with bluefish and false albacore as an alternative for when the bass are not cooperating. The wind during the week kept them at the dock but the fishing on the weekend was making up for it. There are acres of forage fish up and down the beaches.

    On the Gambler, Capt. Bob said he is sailing daily for striped bass now. He has one more canyon tuna trip on the schedule and room to join in. The last trip produced a steady bite and put more than 30 tuna in the boat. A handful of guys limited out with three yellowfin apiece, with the fish in the 75- to 80-pound range, and he said there were a few nice longfin mixed in.

    On the Gambler, Capt. Bob said they are getting ready for the boat's striped bass trips, which were beginning this week. They will have gear for both lures and for livelining, for both stripers and bluefish. The boat also has two more tuna trips scheduled and still had openings on them. Their tuna trip late in the week drew praise from a customer who noted they caught fish despite the fact that the weather was rough. They had yellowfin, bluefin and some mahi, the customer wrote. Our condolences to Capt. Bob and the crew on the loss of their friend, fishing buddy and loyal customer Dean Schaaf, who died recently. "You were taken away from this world way too early, so sudden and unexpected but you went doing what you love. We are extremely heartbroken and will never forget the memories we have made with this amazing man." Tight lines to "Dean, Dean the fishing machine" and our condolences to all who knew and loved him.

    On the Gambler, Capt. Bob said the 36-hour trip midweek resulted in some decent action on 20- to 30-pound bluefin tuna, with the limit kept and others released with the use of the boat's striper net. They caught some big yellowfin and some longfin, and he was at the canyon again last weekend. It's shaping up to be a late-season bite and he expects to be able to catch canyon tuna right into November.
