Trip #24: Ultra-limited load 6-day (Sept 29-Oct 5)

Good evening anglers,

We found an area of fish away from the sharks this afternoon, and were able to scratch up a few handfuls of these excellent 40-50lb yellowfin. Today was our last day in this zone.  Tomorrow we will be traveling up looking for kelps on our way home, hoping for a dorado or two.  Here is Bob with a 40lber he caught this afternoon on 40lb test and a flylined sardine.

Good evening anglers,

We had a tough afternoon. The fish we had around the boat left us, so we went in search of more. We found them late in the day and managed to catch a few more. Hoping for a more productive day tomorrow. We’re in a new spot with fish around and the weather is beautiful. 
Here’s Dan C and Capt Armando with one of the afternoon yellowfin tuna.

Good morning anglers,

Tough day again today so far. There are lots of fish around, they just aren’t biting very well.  Bryan U. did manage to catch this one this morning. The sharks are getting the better of us today. Still plenty of time to fish.

Tackle Tip Thursday Vol.68 (Chunking)

2019-10-17T09:44:00-07:00October 3rd, 2019|Capt Art's Blog, Tackle Tip Thursday|

Tackle Tip Thursday is here! Steve C. from PENN Fishing is back and giving us a great tackle tip for fishing at Guadalupe Island. Today is all about Chunking. Chunking for tuna, that is. You will need a Big hook (swivel is optional to prevent line twist.) 60#-80# 100# test line, Rod rated 60-130# and, a Penn international 16VISX filled with 100# braid with a casting length top shot. (Can be fluorocarbon or monofilament.) Chunking is for the bigger tuna 130-140# tuna. Don’t leave the dock without it.
Huge thank you to Steve C. and PENN Fishing for the tackle tip!
