Couple of short stops on kelp paddies this morning. Pat with a nice offshore Yellow. Good grade yellows on these kelps.
Poor speed last night with choppy weather cost us time but we should be in by 6:00 in the morning

Now we try for bait!
We have traveled most of the day. We made a stop for a few Yellows for lunch tomorrow.
We have had great fishing for the last few days. The Ridge offered great limit style fishing on Yellowtail and Tuna. We had a nice mix of trophy fish with Yellows up to 40 pounds and Tuna up to 65 pounds.
Our trip out to Alijos brought aboard 27 nice wahoo and a full day of heavy losses on the temperamental fish. Am highlight of any 8 day is just to get into a Wahoo arena. From Alijos Rocks we went back into the Ridge on an overnight move to get more action on the school size tuna and yellowtail.
We are currently headed up the line and may make a short stop on the newly developed yellowfin tuna area within 4 day range. Looks like things are really starting to shape up and hopeful for the local arena.
We leave on another 8 day trip on July 4th and looking forward to another successful trip.

We will start heading up this afternoon making stops as we go
Looks like things are about done and time to head offshore
We seemed to keep three to five fish going most of the morning.
We have had a nice morning scratching at this school grade tuna

We finished off with 27 hard earned wahoo. heavy losses but the chances were there. We are going to try for the Jack Pot size tuna in the morning. Back on the road again
We are getting a few strikes now. Pretty spotty but maybe the bulk of the fish will move in soon
Cole with a nice one and a group shot on a little bingo
Look at the weather in the background. Real nice So far just a couple of strikes . Getting a couple on the Cow Bell

We picked off a few more nice 60 pound class tuna for Jack Pot .Jeff and Sonny look to be the top dogs as of now
One nice 60 pound tuna for the afternoon effort
We are headed offshore to see if we can find something floating or some of the tuna the guys were getting last week
Things slowed way down at about 11:00.
They just kept coming aboard
the grade was nice and the action was heavy
We had a real nice morning on school size Yellowfin and Yellowtail. Clean fishing with very few throw back size fish and no skip jack.what a treat
June 28, 2015
We really never picked up the pace but finished the day with 120 Yellows and 42 tuna. We are hoping the morning brings us action and we can get started early.
Sonny released a small Black Sea Bass and everybody started to get in the groove.
