Trip 12: 3 day (Aug 16-19) Capt Potatohead Memorial and Fundraiser

Hello all,

We left on our annual Capt Potatohead trip today. We’ve got lots of regular customers that attend this trip each year. The tuna fishing has been great right in our backyard–25 miles from home–so we came out here for our first afternoon of fishing. We saw several schools of tuna that didn’t want to bit, buy we did get a few samples on a couple stops. We got everyone set up correctly and we will be ready for tomorrow.

Here is Mike Wicen, a long time friend of Dick Uranga, with a nice yellowfin tuna landed on a flat fall lure in the bow. Crewman Armando is there with the assist.

This trip raises funds for pancreatic cancer research in Dick Uranga’s name. His chosen charity was Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN). It’s a great cause…Purple for the Cure!
