Tommy Rothery docked his Polaris Supreme at Fisherman's Landing August 22 after the season's best tuna trip to Guadalupe Island. There were 24 anglers aboard the first Dan Heil Memorial trip.
"I felt like he was there with us," said son and chartermaster Ron Heil. "He would have really enjoyed this trip."
Tuna fishing was excellent for the group, so much so that Rothery was able to give the spot up to Art Taylor and the Searcher.
"We had plenty of tuna," said Tom, "all we needed. The sharks got some of them."
Steve Patterson of Grants Pass won first place for a 103-pound yellowfin.
"My best tuna ever," he said.
Patterson used a sardine on a 4/0 ringed Gorilla hook tied to 40-pound P-Line and 65-pound Izorline Spectra backing, on an Avet LX reel and a Rogue Rod of seven feet.
"He slaughtered me," added Patterson. "I couldn't get my new rod off the rail. He tore up the cork and the diamond wrap."
Don Pieper of Arroyo Grande was second for a 72.6-pounder, and Buddy Bales of Spokane, WA won third place, for a 72.2-pound yellowfin tuna.
The season's 12th wahoo from Guadalupe was included in the catch.

Arrive depart day today. We did the whole routine, I hung out with my baby for an hour and it was time to set sail again. We left on another 5 day with my buddy Archie and his gang and a few other regulars. We did well at the bait receivers. We loaded up on small sardine and left the bay and headed out to do some fishing in the afternoon. We didn't do much. A couple of yellowfin is all we caught. We did see a couple of big schools of 50-80 pound tuna that didn't care we were there at all. No bites. We're eating prime rib and heading down in nice weather. We're going to try for some yellows on the coast in the morning and then head offshore for the afternoon hunting yellowfin.

Our private charter had to display some good old fashioned patience today. In a typical 3/4 day trip we can expect to make about 3-5 moves thru ought the day looking for fish. Today however, we did not find what we were looking for until our 9th stop of the day. The rapidly changing conditions coupled with the short windows of biting fish have been driving yours truly crazy the past couple of days. Today's photo will show you why we have been putting ourselves thru such mental anguish. Todays final count for our 31 passengers is 11 yellowtail 20 calico bass 16 barracuda 7 rockfish. Our yellowtail today weighed 20-35 pounds and were biting the fly lined sardines the best.

Good morning everyone,
Today we fished our final day of our Bogart 2 day trip. It was a day of grinding it out in the Bluefin Tuna grounds. There was a lot of tuna around it was just very finicky and we had trouble getting it to bite. We were able to land one tuna for the entire day.
What saved our bacon was the yellowtail fishing. We fished yellows the second half of the day for great quality yellows! Biggest being 48lbs!
We are in tomorrow early at 5 am, and out for seven!
Wish us luck,
