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.

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 Gratefully sponsored by Turners Outdoorsman, Izorline, and Seeker Rods, helping us raise dollars for City of Hope Women's Cancer Research.

Trip 13: 1.5-day (Aug 19-21) Let’s Talk Hook-up

Hello anglers, Timing is everything and ours wasn't great today. We had tough weather conditions with wind and a swell which made it hard to work. We started in an area that was productive for several boats yesterday, and with the conditions changing, we didn't have the same success. So then we travelled north and arrived in an area where there were a few tuna seen, hoping for some action this afternoon. We saw a nice school of bluefin and yellowfin tuna and had some action! Everyone had a chance at landing a nice tuna. They didn't bite very well, but we had a sample. Here is Bobby R with a hook and hand bluefin from Capt Mike. Thanks to Pete Gray and Let's Talk Hook-up for all the support in sponsoring this trip, and a terrific pro-staffer Patrick Gee. Capt Art and Team Searcher
