Trip Report

Trip #29 Ultra-limited load 7-day trip (Nov 2-9)

Good Evening anglers,

We wrapped up our trip here with some wide open action on smaller grade yellowtail.  We released quite a few but there were some worthy of a tag.  Here’s one of the large schools we stopped on this afternoon.  That’s a wrap for this trip and our fishing season.  Thanks for fishing with us this year, we hope to see everyone back again next year.

~Captain Mike and the Boys
