The fantastically eroded Clarion Island, its iron-rich cliffs jutting from the waves, is known for its phenomenal tuna fishing.
Roca Partida pokes out of the ocean like a decayed tooth. This volcanic remnant is only about 100 yards long and 110 feet high, but the fish love it.
Next stop: Socorro Island. At 10 miles long, it’s the largest in the Revillagigedo chain of islands. Mount Cerro Evermann, its top point, soars to 3,707 feet.
We tagged 40 white sharks this past fall along the coast of Northern California between Tomales Bay and Ano Nuevo Island.
For a deep-sea angler, the story of this expedition belongs in the died-and-gone-to-heaven category: Nine days of fishing. In gorgeous, sunny weather. In a place where nobody can fish anymore.
