Good evening folks

A spectacular day of Yellowtail fishing. From 5:30 to9:30 in the morning we had 15 to 18 fish hanging all the time four hours. Nice grade 18 to 30 pounds and really biting. The best I have seen there!

We spent the rest of the day offshore getting Jig strikes throughout the afternoon on small tuna We will be up fishing local tomorrow

Good evening folks.

Pretty tough day all in all but we did have one stop where we hooked four and picked off three of these nice 80 to 100 pound fish. Chris , Corey and Bob were the successful anglers with the Jack Pot contenders. We had a couple other drifts but really not much to mention . Tomorrow we will be fishing yellows in Mexican waters . We spent the day up above today and it looks like the rest of the trip will be in Mexico

We had scratch fishing today. Things started with a long slow one at a time drift on Bluefin and a few Yellowfin. We picked thorough out the day and finished with a sundowner on fish from 15 to 35 pounds with one high liner about 70 pounds. Not much sign of the better size fish today but we made a day of it with 70 Bluefin and 18 yellowfin all in US waters

Good evening folks

With the closure of Bluefin tuna in Mexico we are starting our trip above the line in US waters. This is the first of a string of five day trips starting with Bluefin Jim's annual trip.

We found a kelp late that provided action on smaller grade yellowfin and bluefin . We were stoked to be drifting into sunset with 40 mixed tuna and a couple of Dorado. So far this morning just a few bluefin but nice weather.
