Long Range California Fishing Trip
We left May 26th on the Q-105 boat out of San Diego. John Kline and John Grabosky, two of the best captains around, were in command of a six-day long range yellowtail trip to Cedros and Benitos Islands. Thirty-three people were on board plus the crew; all but three were fishing. John and I were part of the fishing group of thirty.
