Trip #17 Turner’s Outdoorsman 1.5-day (August 28-30)

Hello anglers,

We had some action this morning on yellowfin tuna and almost everyone has landed a fish. Live sardine and Colt Snipers were the most successful methods used. Here is Bob Fletcher, former Sportfishing Association of California president (and mentor to a young Captain Art), and Crewman Ryan with a nice yellowfin tuna. Bob was using 20 pound line and a #2 J-hook. 

More later,

Trip #16 Jerome’s 1.5-day (August 26-28)

Good evening anglers,

This afternoon we saw just a little sign of biting yellowfin, however we did have a few good shots at quality bluefin.  Getting a bite was not the problem, but landing them proved to be difficult.  Those who stuck it out were rewarded.  Here is David and Patrick with some 40lb class bluefin. Thanks to Jerry N and employees from Jeromes for joining us on this trip.

Trip #16 Jerome’s 1.5-day (August 26-28)

Good afternoon anglers,

We started our morning off fishing for 10-25# yellowfin. We found a few schools, but they did not want to cooperate. We managed to catch a couple handfuls. Around lunch time we stumbled into a school of 30-40lb bluefin that wanted to bite a little on the light tackle. After many casualties we managed to boat a few of these excellent grade bluefin. 

Here is crewman Justin and Jerry with a nice 30+lb bluefin tuna caught on the sinker rig.

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.
