The boys of Extreme Fishing Maui head to the northwest in search of giant lingcod.

Sorry, we had to take a few days off of fishing in Maui to head to San Juan Island hook up with some big Lingcod. It was an incredible trip to say the least. We started out in Anacortes Washington, and were escorted by a pod of Orca whales through the first channel. Aided by great weather and plenty of Bud light, we headed up to Friday harbor on Captain Brian Wygal’s Cal 34′ sailboat. Well, the weather turned pretty quick to mid 40’s and rain with a swift breeze keeping the boat rocking. As you can see, first mate Zach Roberts landed the fish of the trip with this monster Lingcod.

After a few more fish, and big storm headed our way, we docked up at Roche Harbor for the night.

The next day was of course, a very interesting one. Things started out nice and smooth. With clear skies and breezy condition, we weaved in and out of the islands looking for smooth water, but that only lasted so long. After being boarded and searched by the Coast guard, we were cleared to proceed (thanks to Captain Brian’s meticulous boat keeping skills) to the last big stretch of water. It took us a few attempts to make it back home, and our final route was not the smoothest of choices, but again Captain Wygal saved the day. After about 4 hours of gail force winds and waves that made the our boat disappear from sight, we made it home.

It’s always good to get out and fish in different areas of the world, but it is also a great reminder that there is just nothing like fishing in Maui.
