Capt. Tim Ekstrom called it when he said, “The Ridge is going to provide a ton of action, though mostly from smaller fish than the first couple days.” Fishing The Ridge as we start to head back north toward San Diego allows all anglers to make sure they have a couple fish for their coolers. Some anglers definitely have more fish than others at this point. On the way to The Ridge, our team of four was on the troll and my rod was hammered. Out of the four lines in the water, mine was the lucky one. Finally, after losing fish earlier in the trip, plus a sharked wahoo, I landed my first-ever ‘hoo (nicknamed skinnys) from the Pacific Ocean.
