Trip 19 (3 day) Aug 26-29 Lady Angler Trip Underway!

Our 23 lady anglers left this morning on a 3-day offshore fishing adventure. Some anglers are novices, some are experienced, but they EACH have a brand-new pair of Xtratuf boots, especially made for women! Thank you, Xtratuf!


We’re pretty sure Bootz has met his match with the ladies’ Xtratuf legacy models in blue (on left) and cooper (on right)…sized just for women!

In addition to Team Searcher crew, the ladies have two expert pro-staffers on board, Wendy Tochihara of Izorline and Lori Sachau of Turner’s Outdoorsman in San Marcos, CA. Wendy and Lori have attracted the attention of so many tackle manufacturers who want to put their saltwater gear into the hands of lady anglers. Thank you to Okuma, Accurate, Seeker Rods, Pelagic Gear, Costa sunglasses, Phenix Rods, Tady lures, and so many more that we’ll highlight during the trip. Stand by for more photos of the ladies using their terrific saltwater gear!

Trip Report

Trip 19 (3 day) Aug 26-29 Lady Angler trip

Hello anglers!
We have a few bluefin and yellowfin tuna aboard this morning already. We can see fish on the surface and on the sonar, so we are hopeful that the fish continue to bite.

The first fish caught today was brought aboard by Teresa R. For that she wins the Okuma rod!  In addition, each lady angler got to select a pair of Costa sunglasses, which are perfect for saltwater anglers! Thank you to Okuma and Costa for those generous donations, and keeping ladies on the water.costa

Our second jackpot collected $430 and will be awarded to “Sportswoman” of the trip to use in credit towards a Searcher Sportfishing trip in 2017. The money will be matched by Team Searcher and donated to the American Heart Association’s “GO RED FOR WOMEN” campaign, which educates women about heart health and disease prevention.

Jan Dalziel came all the way from England! Here she is posing with her first bluefin tuna.trip19janBFT
