“It was rough,” he said. “We had 20 knots of wind.”
The wind didn’t seem to bother the longfin, however, as several anglers managed to bag limits on the Izorline charter. The three best albies of the season were also among the catch, also the best of the season so far.
Chartermaster Norm Fujimoto said, “Our best stop was for 32 albacore. Everybody fished hard, and some guys got limits for their trouble.
Harold Guy of Canoga Park presented the best fish of the season to date, when he brought his 35-pounder to the scales for Taylor to weigh.
“I knew he was big,” said Guy, but I was surprised he was that big.”
Harold said he got the big boy on a sardine and a 3/0 ringed Super Mutu hook. He won first place in the jackpot, and also won the Izorline Trophy for the best fish on Izorline. Guy said he used 40-pound Izorline on a Daiwa Saltiga 30 L reel, on an eight-foot Shimano TC 4 rod.
Norm’s son Darren Fujimoto won second place for a 28.2-pound albacore. Pete Groshong of Phoenix took third place for his 27.2-pound albie.
