Trip 10 (5-day) Izorline- and Turner’s-sponsored trip is off and running!

Anglers were early to rise this morning so they could arrive at Fisherman’s Landing for early check-in for Searcher‘s Trip 10, the annual Izorline/Turner’s Outdoorsman 5-day.

Pro-staffers Wendy Tochihara and Lori Sachau were the first to board, with their cart overflowing with gear, giveaways and swag for our lucky anglers!


The boat departed at 8:40am to load up on bait. Capt Art called in to report they got  some nice-looking sardines and that they were headed for some Day One fishing! Check back here  for daily reports from the field!


Happy anglers on 4-day trip with @Izorline as sponsor. #searchersportfishing

Trip Report

Trip 10 Jul 23-28 (5-day)July 25 Evening Report

Hello all,

The highlight today was a few nice dorado on kelp paddies. We travelled south down to 330 miles from home for some yellowfin tuna action. Unfortunately, the tuna moved without telling us where they went. We stopped and tried several kelp paddies. Janice K.  landed this nice male dorado with help from Capt Ryan. You can see we had great weather again today.

Dinner was stuffed pork loin with fennel and apples with a dijon sauce. Roasted brocollini and carrots, white beans and fresh shallot bread. It was absolutely delicious.

More tomorrow,

Team Searcher
