Trip #9 (6-day trip) Aug 5-Aug 11, Day 4

Good evening Anglers:

Today we had a good pick on yellowfin tuna 25lbs to 75lbs. Tackle tip for the day, was a 7 foot rod and 40lb with fluorocarbon and a 1/0 hook small sardines have been working the best for our anglers so far.

Heres Mark Stout and Captain Mike with a 40lb yellowfin. More to coming, stay hooked. ~Captain Shawn and Team Searcher.


Hello Anglers,

This morning we are catching quality fish and being able to focus on bring them on deck. We are having fun fishing. The best chance at a bite is with 40lb test and 1/0 hooks, which makes this very challenging due to the size of the fish (biggies), but we are up for the challenge! (it is called sportfishing after all.)  Wish us luck this afternoon.

Here is Dan T. and Captain Aaron with a 45lb yellowfin.

Trip 5 Let’s Talk Hookup Jul 9-11 (1.5-day) July 10 Report

Hello all, We have had an action packed morning so far! We are out with our first Let's Talk Hook Up 1.5 day trip. The weather is outstanding with calm seas. Our first kelp paddie produced good action on small yellowtail. Everyone had multiple chances to land a yellowtail and I think most everyone did. Our next kelp produced a few dorado! Lee Muncie from Seal Beach landed a nice dorado! Long time Searcher client Dave Nearing landed a dorado as well. Crewman Ryan Lindahn gets the assist. Tom P from LTHU sports the advertising for Pete Gray. (July 10 Afternoon Report Follows)
Plenty of action this afternoon!!! Everyone had a great time catching yellowtail with a few dorado as well. The crew did an awesome job locating kelp paddies today. Mindy Smith from Huntington Beach landed this dorado. She got some great instruction from the crew today and it paid off. Mindy used 25 pound line and a 2/0 hook with a live sardine.
