Trip 31 (7 day) Oct 22-29 The Ridge (last trip of 2016!)

And they’re “off and running” on Searcher Sportfishing’s last trip of the 2016 season! It’s an awesome way to finish strong by having Gary Gillingham aboard for this trip. He’s our favorite pro-staffer with Accurate Fishing Products and Seeker Rods. Captain Aaron is at the helm with 24 anglers who are anxious to get to The Ridge and try their hand at a wahoo.

Trip Report

Trip 31 (7 day) Oct 22-29 The Ridge with Accurate and Seeker

Howdy anglers:

We had some action this morning on a couple of wahoo, but they aren’t very hungry. We’ve seen some, but they are not interested in what we have to offer.

We had some action on yellowfin tuna though! Going for more this afternoon.


Long-time Searcher friend, Allen A, got a nice yellowfin tuna today. Capt Ben was at the gaff.

Day’s end report:

Howdy anglers,

We had a few more tuna this afternoon and a couple more wahoo.

Steve Lenker is pictured  with one of the wahoo. The weather has come down and we’re moving down to a area with promising reports.

Many thanks to Gary Gillingham and all his support through Accurate Fishing Products and Seeker Rods. Lots of gear and fun for anglers to try out!
