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.

Hello anglers:

We had some nice fishing on mixed bluefin and yellowfin tuna. 

Jeannie M is new to tuna fishing. Our Lady Angler trip is the perfect time to learn and enjoy the sport with other ladies (and our terrific crew)!

Izorline pro-staffer, Wendy Toch, shows off a beauty.

Stay tuned for more from the field!

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

Hello anglers

We departed on our Lady Anglers trip yesterday. We got a nice load of bait and fished this afternoon since the fish are close to home. The first two fish we landed were 35 pound bluefin tuna. Here are Sophia, pro-staffer for Seeker Rods, and Chelsea T. with their nice bluefin. Sophia landed hers on 20 pound line and a live bait, and Chelsea used a colt sniper and 30 pound line.

We had some action on yellowfin tuna as well and almost everyone landed a tuna the first day. The weather is great with light winds and no seas. Loads of swag was given out before we got to the fishing grounds. 

Looking forward to tomorrow! Captain Art and Team Searcher
