Our PM Half Day saw excellent Calico Bass fishing, highlighted by a big Black Seabass trying to eat one of our hooked bass. We ended up spending just an hour and half on the anchor for over 30 bass released. We spent the rest of the trip looking for Yellowtail, but not finding the ideal conditions.

Good evening, friends. We departed on an open party 5-day trip today with a healthy load of people and a healthy load of bait. Our weather traveling down is quite nice and we're looking like the weather is going to clean up for the next few days, so we're pumped. As far as the fishing outlook, one boat in the area today did equally phenomenal on bluefin and yellowfin. Straight up.We'll be in the area tomorrow and we'll chat you up tomorrow on our day.
Getting back to yesterday, we'd like to thank Paul Hess and his crew that tagged along with him this year. If I recall, this was Paul's 12th annual trip and we look forward to seeing him, his son, Matt, and the rest of the gang that comes back year after year (thanks for bailing, Boomhower. More bluefin and yellowfin for us.) Anyhow, It's a fantastic trip, one of my favorites every year, and we'll see y'all next year.
So that's all. We'll chat with you tomorrow.
He made the right move. Tommy that is. We came, we saw, we conquered. I told you we'd be at The Island today. It was good. We had good fishing. We arrived after breakfast, and found a little something to work with but we could tell it just wasn't it. So we looked around and we found "It". Premo's. Premiums baby and lots of them. We had one heck of an afternoon on premium grade yellowtail. When we say that we mean a mid to upper 20 average. Slug yellowtails. You never get used to it either. Every time someone brings one over the rail it's like, "dang those things are beauts"! And that's all I have to say about that. A very full hold of slugs and then some.
Once again we can not get one to bite the surface iron. The past few trips have been prime surface iron conditions. We have the Big Banana out(the long pole) but we can not get Banana crazy. Weird.
We're going to try and get our tuna on the next couple of days. If we happen to bump into some more YT's along the way then ok. That'll be alright. The fleet for the most part has been off the mexican yellowfin the last several days and we're going to try and get back on them. It's sounds like there has been an impressive amount of fish being seen up above in the U.S. It doesn't bite on a consistent basis yet but that's soon coming. It bites fairly often but I have a feeling the fleets in for some very good fishing in the near future. I'm not necessarily trying to get you to book, but come on, book. There may be a spot or two left.
Manny Sanchez with 1 of our 2 bluefin. The bluefin we saw today were in a little different mood. Hoping for an attitude adjustment tomorrow.
Fishing reports for lake harding are updated each week, usually by Thursday morning. The reports are compiled by an outside contractor who receives the information from bait shops, marinas and fishing guides.
