It took awhile last night but we goton a school of 60-200# bluefin around 11pm and it stuck to the boat. We had a very good opportunity with lots of bites, lots of losses, but we still managed to boat enough for everyone, including this 230# fish.
We rolled into the east this morning and stopped on a small school. We have been picking away on 30-60# fish all morning now. It’s slow going with one or two at a time but they are nice fish and the weather is beautiful
This is flyline, 30lb fitness fishing.

Congrats to Jeanine, catching a jumbo again this year!
We are wrapping up our season of shorter 2 to 4 day trips fishing. Our local bluefin has been nothing short of excellent this year, and we’ve enjoyed a long summer of good fishing. Now we turn our attention to longer trips this fall.
We are getting reports of phenomenal fishing from other boats fishing at spots down south. We’re hearing that it’s as good as it gets for fishing yellowfin tuna in the 20-40# range. There’s good yellowtail fishing on the beach and a shot for a few wahoo at Alijos Rocks or The Ridge.
Check out the video on Yo-yo fishing for yellowtail to get an idea of the fun fishing!
We have a few spots left on a limited load 8 day in November, my favorite time of year to go down there, as well as a few spots on Ultra-limited Load trips (14 anglers) and a Seeker-sponsored trip coming up in October.
