Trip 27 (7 day) Oct 27- Nov 3 (Day 5) Ultra-limited load

Good evening anglers: Today we fished the coast for yellowtail and had good results on catching some 16 to 25 lb fish. The best way to get a bite was on a dropper loop set-up and a sardine (click here for a how-to video) as well yo-yo iron using 50lb test. For success at surface iron fishing lures, click here. The weather today was nothing short of fantastic with calm seas and sunny skies. It has been truly an "epic trip" and we want to say a big Team Searcher "THANK YOU" to Thom C. and the group of anglers that joined us. Here's Thom with his quality yellowtail. We're travelling north on Friday and due to arrive back to the dock early Saturday morning. Captain Shawn and Team Searcher

Happy Halloween fellow anglers,
Today, started off with a nice yellowfin tuna bite. Then we caught a few wahoo while trolling.  We switched it up a bit and headed to another location to fish the bottom. We had some good results on yellowtail and grouper. The best method of catching yellowtail and grouper was live bait on a dropperloop. The sun is out and the weather is nice so we will see what the rest of the day brings us. Wish us luck, Here is Ronald S. with his premium leopard grouper. ~Captain Shawn and Team Searcher.

Good Morning fellow anglers,  Yesterday, we had another exceptional day of fishing on wahoo and tuna. Most of the yellowfin caught today are what I call primos. Tunas range from 25 to 45lbs. They were biting best flylining with 40 lb test, 40lb flouro and Owner 3/0 hooks. Almost all of are wahoo caught today were on wahoo bombs or fly-lined baits after jig strikes.The best lures to troll with were Nomads and Marauders. (Nomad pictured below.) Our weather was nothing short of fantastic! Flat calm seas with a light breeze. We are going to stay put today, Wish us luck. Here is a shot of Captain Mike and Terry W. with a breathtaking yellowfin tuna.
