Laid-back fishing, high-end grubbing with Wagner Charters

This tanker yellowtail was caught at Catalina Island on 15-pound line, size 2 hook, 1-ounce egg sinker with fresh cut squid, was about a 30 minute fight.
“It almost broke me off on the anchor line, the kelp bed and the engine props,” said Robert Wagner of Wagner Charters. “It ran me around the boat three times. Such a fun fight!”

The sashimi is not from the yellow. It’s from a vermilion rockfish with my own spin on it. Lemon, soy sauce, sea salt, seaweed, and sesame seeds. So delicious! My specialty!  I do on the regular for clients.” – Robert Wagner, Wagner Charters.
