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

Hello anglers,

We had a nice day overall with plenty of opportunities to catch a quality tuna. And we saw lots of fish all day, but they didn’t bite as well as we hoped. The weather again was awesome, warm and sunny with light winds. We have high hopes for tomorrow.

Here is long-time Searcher customer Dale B with a 51 pound yellowfin, which is  a jackpot contender.

Hello anglers,

We have had great action again this morning! Incredible weather with light winds and sunny skies.Here is Tony M and Chef Dan with a nice tuna.

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

Hello anglers,

We arrived at Guadalupe Island Sunday afternoon. It didn’t take long for us to locate some fish and get the anchor down. Then we enjoyed steady action until dark. What a great start on 25-50 pound yellowfin! Live sardines with 30-40 pound line and fluorocarbon were the best method today.

Here is Paul C with a nice 40 pound fish. Oh, and the weather is awesome!

Trip #25 Ultra-limited load 7-day trip (Oct 5-12)

Hello anglers,

We focused on yellowtail today. Everyone has enough yellowfin tuna! We tried various spots with not much success. We did find a few fish at the end of the day and they were nice size fish. A fly-line mackerel with 40-pound test, and yo-yo lure (blue/white and scrambled egg) with 40-60 pound line were the methods that worked. Everyone had a chance at landing a nice yellowtail. Here is Paul S with a 42 pound yellowtail which is a personal best for this long-time angler!

We are headed north tonight to check in in Ensenada and then home for our next trip. Nice weather.

Hello anglers,

We had some good opportunities in the last 2 hours of the day. Everyone ended up landing enough yellowfin tuna for the trip. Yellowfin catching has been great this trip.

 Here is Anne L. with a nice tuna with Capt Armando.

We are spending the night and trying for yellowtail tomorrow to finish the trip.

Trip #25 Ultra-limited load 7-day trip (Oct 5-12)

Hello anglers:

We had good fishing today. Everyone had multiple chances at landing a nice yellowfin tuna. It took light line and small hooks to get a bite–30 pound line and a #2 hook with a fresh sardine was the method of choice. We had some losses that are associated with this size fish and lighter tackle but we had a good day anyway. Conditions were great, the weather was awesome. Here is Capt Art and Rick D with a nice tuna. And Matt R with a yellowtail.
