Red Hot Chili Peppers - Aloha Spirit

Shig Getting "Shiggy" with a Nice Chili

Hey Gang

Check out the pictures from the Jay Maeda Charter Aboard the Aloha Spirit out of Oxnard CA. Captain Shawn Steward and Crew provided a great day of fishing up the Beach. It was limit fishing for the Chili Peppers and the group was stoked. Man, I was stoked for the fishing and the great weather.

There was a bit of wind on the water in the Grey, but it turned out to be "Morning Sickness" where the Ocean greased out to a Flat Calm Sea. It was pretty brutally cold in the morning, but it turned into TShirt Weather by Mid-Morning.



We had one bite that woke everyone up on deck. John hooked into something on his Cod Rig that ripped off just about all of his 30 lb. on his Newell.

After about 10 Minutes, the line frayed and all was lost. The 30 lb was no match for what we thought was a Thresher. Nice Fight. Who needs a cup of coffee after watching that.

Jackpot Day for Jay

After an action packed day of Codding and a Couple of BreakFast Burritos, some Grilled Pastrami Sandos, and add in a few Cheese Burgers, the Group was wiped out after the fun day on the Water. Jesse in the Galley Cooks up a M ean Griddle.

We all want to thank Shawn and Crew for an Awesome Trip on the Aloha Spirit. Check him out in 09 if you want to get into some good Northern Island Fishing. He runs a top notch operation and is Living Life with a True Aloha Spirit.
