Captain Mike Pritchard checked in tonight with an update from the Tribute out of Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay, CA. Sorry for the late report tonight. We found a school of Bluefin on the way home and let them have it! We ended our day with 9 Bluefin and 18 kelp grade yellowtail.
We go again tonight! Come on out and get some
We started our morning off in the local bluefin zone. We caught 12 of them, 2 of them being the 50+ pounders while the rest were that beautiful manageable 30-40 pound fish and we caught a few yellowfin. On drift number 2 we hooked and lost one. Do to the amount of boats thinking the same thing we were and the lack of fish I was seeing being brought over the rail, I decided to leave early and look for yellowfin for a while. It wasn't long before we found some, and then some more, and then some more. It pretty much was like that for as long as we fished it which was until after 5 when we went back to the zone where we started. We had good fishing pretty much all day long. The only negative thing about it was the grade of fish was a bit on the smaller side. They weren't runts but they weren't great either. 12 pounds is the short version. They averaged out to be 12 pounders. We looked all around for a bigger grade but it pretty much was what it was. I did think that the area we finished up in yellowfin wise had quite a few more 20 pounders mixed in than what we'd been fishing so it may be something to look at tomorrow. We finished up right where we started and we had a long 2 1/2 hour drift. We caught a yellowfin every once in a while, we landed 4 of the 30-40 pound bf's and caught 1 70ish pounder and lost at least 4 of those. We are going to drift tonight and do it again tomorrow.
Steady sonar stops for our 30 anglers produced 104 yellowtail from 12-20 lbs. 40 lb mono on a 20 or 30 size conventional reel and a yoyo jig was the most productive. Trips are filling up fast for this season. Make those resos
4 yellowtail and plenty of reds and rockfish. The islands continue to move in the right direction.
After another slow day offshore. We have decided to make Monday and Tuesday an island trip. We will be targeting yellowtail, kelp bass, barracuda and we even heard of a bluefin sighting today. Summer island tackle consists of a 25 lb bait rod, a 40 lb yo-yo rod, your favorite jig stick and your favorite kelp bass rod. Passports are required. Reservations are light but both trips are a definite go.
