Christmas Break in Makoville (Video)

https://youtu.be/1sVLw1MeLv4

My father and I dropped down the day after Christmas for some kayak fishing at Makoville in Gonzaga Bay. First time down. 2 1/2 days on the water.

This was my first time really trying out flat falls, tadys, butterflies, and mega baits. Lost count of the triggers and spots by the end of the first day.

Spent the second day chasing sierra boils, but rigged way too heavy for the microbait they were after... Seemed like people were hooking up on 1 1/2 oz castmasters... The smallest thing I had was around 6oz. Also heard of some other anglers doing really well with the Cabrillo.

Did finally hook up with one nice Sierra, and had one *really* solid bite at the end of the 2nd day that immediately broke off in the rocks.

Big thanks to everyone who showed us such a warm welcome and helped us get settled in. It's great that Bob is so generous and welcoming with such an amazing place. Beyond the fishing (which was great even for slow season), I was constantly picking my jaw up off the floor at the dawn and dusk skies. Truly a wonderful place. This won't be my last trip down.

As was mentioned in another post, my father and I left early and it timed well to help get Bob back across the border since his health wasn't looking too great. If anyone hears from him, please update. I tried calling a few times, but haven't been able to get through.

Bob- I'd like to wish you a speedy recovery and thank you for creating such an open and friendly community.

Cool report. Time spend fishing with pops is the best time you can spend. That zing pow at 1:00

Sorry to hear about Bob. Speedy recovery!

Wish I could have lasted another day (still coughing my lungs out, but feeling better). Now I know why you were leaving the camera tripod on the beach for so long. Very cool video - we have got to get you down again just so we all can watch more of your video work!

Yeah... I am glad I got home early, as I'm only just starting to recover from getting nailed by the flu right as I finished unloading the truck. I'm a bit of an AV geek for sure. That place is amazing for shooting timelapse, and next time I won't forget my extra batteries and charger for my DSLR

Great video, thank you.

It amazes me that the guys on this board are kayakers, fisherman AND great videographers. I just don't have those AV skills. It's all I can do to catch a few fish and maybe once in a while land one worthy of a photo.

Kudos for tight editing!

Just want to add to what others have noted, that the tightly edited video is excellent work! The skies there are fine to watch! :-)
