Trip Report

Trip #15 Lady Angler 3-day trip (Aug 23-26)

Hello anglers,

We had a slow morning today, but afer lunch we found some fish that cooperated. We had two stops that produced a mix of yellowfin and bluefin tuna. Live bait and 25 pound line with 25 pound floro carbon and a 1/0 hook was the primary successful method. And a few fish were landed on colt snipers. Lots of fun was had by everyone and we all wore our pink shirts. The weather is very calm and we are looking forward to tomorrow. Here is Wendy from Izorline and Glenda with a hook and hand fish landed by Glenda and hooked by Wendy.
