Trip Report

Trip #26 Ultra-limited load 7-day trip (Oct 12-19)

Hello anglers,

We had a great day fishing offshore today. We started the day with a school of mixed grade yellowfin tuna and skipjack. We had good action on 10-30 pound tuna and the skipjack were a lot of fun. we released a lot of skipjack and kept a few for poke.

Everyone had their fill of yellowfin and so we decided to head west on a report of bluefin tuna schools. The last part of the day was spent on a big school of 40-55 pound bluefin tuna. They were biting! Capt Mike hooked and handed 10 fish! Not all were landed as usual due to the usual losses that occur with that size fish. We landed 16 of these good size bluefin tuna. Here is a group shot of the lucky anglers who landed at least one.

This was a great ending to a great trip!
