Good evening anglers,

Today we departed on a 3 day trip sponsored by Penn Reels. Pro-staffer Steve Carson is here with all kinds of giveaways and loaner gear. (Check out Steve’s recent tackle tip here: Your “must-have” outfit!)

We started our day on a nice sonar school of yellowfin that didn’t bite very well. We still managed a few, but then quickly moved on. We kept heading west where we found an area of bluefin and stopped on a nice sonar mark of 30-50lb bluefin These stuck with us until after dark and started biting the flat falls after the sun went down.  We got a nice sample and what a great way to start off our trip.

Here is Mike B. with a 35lb bluefin he landed on 25lb test.
