Trip 34 Nov 11-17 Accurate/Seeker (6-day) Guadalupe Special Nov 15 Midday Report

November 15th, 2017|Categories: Trip Reports|

Hello all,

We have had a great morning fishing for tuna and yellowtail. Steady action on fish over 100 pounds with a few 25-40 pound tuna mixed in and some nice size yellowtail 25-35 pounds. All the fish were hooked on flyline live sardines and 80 pound test and a 4/0 Owner circle hook. 

Here’s Teresa Reynoso with her 91 pound tuna that she landed with just a little help from Capt Art around the anchor line. Capt Ryan helped Teresa hold the fish up for this photo. Hoping for more action this afternoon. We are very close  to reaching our goal of everyone landing a big tuna.

Trip 34 Nov 11-17 Accurate/Seeker (6-day) Guadalupe Special Nov 14 Report

November 14th, 2017|Categories: Trip Reports|

Hello all,

Another windy, windy day. It was very hard to fish, but we managed to land a few good grade fish: we caught a few in the morning, with a lull until late in the day. We are slowly but surely getting everyone onboard a quality tuna. We are hoping that the wind backs off tomorrow and we can land a few more.

Here is Elbie Bartolome from San Diego with the 116-pound tuna he hooked. The crew helped finish this fish off with multiple trips under the anchor line. Glad we were able to help get this fish on deck.

More tomorrow,

Capt Art & Team Searcher

Hello all,

Very tough conditions today. Very windy and no current made it difficult to fish and get a bait out away from the boat. We saw fish around us all day but we only landed a few. Dale Bunting from Cambria landed this 134 pound tuna. He is pictured with Gary Gillingham from Accurate products. Dale won the Seeker rod that Gary has for landing today’s first tuna over 100 pounds.

We are hoping for better conditions tomorrow(Tuesday).

Howdy anglers,

We’ve had another great day here at the island, with very nice fish coming over the rail. All but two were over 100lbs and our biggest was 171#.  Here is Matt Schulz with his first fish over 100#.

The weather is really nice. We have one more day to fish before headed back to the dock.

November 7th, 2017|Categories: Trip Reports|

Howdy angers, 

We had some sign of tuna all morning. The conditions weren’t optimal (lack of current), but we managed to catch a few. All the fish are over 100# so everyone is pretty pleased.

Here is a sample of one of our fish caught by Jim Mabary using one of our new Seeker OSP 1×3 rods with our new Penn 16 visx with 80lb Izorline on a 2/0 Owner mutu hook. 

So we’re hoping for more action this afternoon.
