1.5 Day Wrap-up Report - Killed 'em!

by Stan Nowak
(619) 221-8500

Finished up another VERY successful trip with our great sponsors at Accurate Fishing represented by their Vice President of Sales, Justin Poe.  Accurate supplied 28 set-ups of their line of Valiant rods and reels along with some heavier 130# rigs.  And they were tested by some slug yellowtail and hard fighting bluefin tunas!

First stop was on the anchor at San Clemente Island after pounding into the weather all night getting there.  Wind was up and seas were rough so Capt. Jeff gave the customers a break from the weather picking away at slug yellows and some bonito until mid-afternoon.  The yellows primarily wanted a hot little sardine with a few caught on jig.  Heavy casulaties as these fish were mean and rocking anglers in shallow water.

They then decided to venture offshore and brave the stacked up seas to find some bluefin that have lost their will to live.  It took until dark, but they FOUND THEM....and it went wide open for over an hour on 35-60# class tunas.  All fish caught on glow jigs with more lost than landed.  Rough seas but excellent fishing!

Final Tally:

45 Bluefin tuna (35# - 60#) Average over 50#

32 yellow tail to 35#.  Average grade 22-25#

13 bonito plus a few calico bass and a baracuda.

28 tired but satisfied customers!
