8.19.14 – Back from a 3 day trip!
We departed on the Elite/Steel City charter three day trip here with a beautiful load of bait and a great group of guys, the makings of a great trip. We started off in the local Yellowfin zone and planned on working south. We were able to scrape up 16 Yellow fin between 20 to 25 pounds. With not much sign of fish and lots of boat traffic we bailed out in search of more plentiful waters.
The next day we woke up to a grey bite for 25 tuna then we were back on the hunt between bird schools, sonar marks and kelps we were able to put a nice day together. We ended the day with 175 mixed fish Yellowfin, Yellowtail and Dorado all being in the mix.
The following morning our grey bite had some hart breaks with some big fish lost at color with some of the battles lasting over an hour and a half the light line could not hold up. We were back on the hunt again finding a giant kelp it was game on with 190 mixed fish mostly Yellow fin a few Dorado and some Yellow tail up to 20 pounds. That was a lot of fun.
The last run made it a great day with 289 mixed fish for the day you couldn’t ask for better fishing. This was a great trip, one for the books that’s for sure.
