Good evening everyone,
Today we started off the day in kelp land. Finding many nice kelps along a nice water color break. One in particular held a slew of different game fish. Dorado, Wahoo, Yellowtail, and Tuna. Most of them where on the small side, but it was still great fun catching such a variety of fish. Later on we were able to slide inside and finish off the day with some coastal Yellowtail. It was great ending the day with a nice hit on the Yellowtail. Biting the iron very well, adding to the fall 10 day variety pack.
We are pointed north at the moment trying to cover some ground to make it in on time Wednesday morning.
Will report again tomorrow,

Ryan Bostian checked in from “The San Diego” this afternoon with an update from Seaforth Sportfishing in Mission Bay. The Bluefin Tuna are 20 to 120 pounds. Please make sure you are prepared. The Yellowtail are 5 to 10 pounds. Please bring one light rod and one heavy rod. A light rod would be 25 pound or 30 pound test. A heavy rod should be nothing less than 40 pound outfit a 50 or 60 would be better. The Bluefin are biting on a flat fall jig. A perfect out fit for he flat fall jig would be a Talica 12 filled up with 65 pound spectra with a short top shot of 80 pound fluorocarbon.
Today we had Captain Cameron running the boat. He had a very respectable day offshore in a crowded ocean.
FISH COUNT: 56 anglers caught 2 Bluefin Tuna and 52 Yellowtail.

Jackpot! Wow what a great day. We had very, very good fishing on nice grade tuna. With the light load we have on this trip the anglers had lots of action. Our scores are as follows: Lon 274 lb., Greg 144, 110, and 152 pounders, Matt a 136 lb., John a 200 pounder, Mike 90, 125, and a 70 pounder, Tim 195 lbs., Chris 70 lbs., and Bill 70, 160, and a 304 pounder! Our weather is good. Lunch was a great seafood pasta and for dinner we went down home with some bar-b-que ribs, beans and corn on the cob. We were all so excited to have this nice big hit on the big fish.

We fished today in the local bluefin zone. We scratched at the yellowfin and picked at the bluefin for 5 hours this morning. Scratch means we were getting a few here and there and pick means we were getting one here and there. In the morning the blues were mostly 25-45 pounds and we caught half a dozen or so 60-70 pounders. Between noon and 5:00 PM we drove around looking for fish with not much luck and we went back to the blue zone for the evening session and had a real good evening. We picked up 7 more 60-80 pounders and the yellowfin got on us a couple times and we couldn't stop catching it until after dark. One post it note I made today was BBB. It's a reminder to tell you about a regular passenger of ours by the name of Bill Byler. If you don't know Bill he is one of those loud mouth, smart mouth old retired fireman guys and he's awesome. He is a load of fun. Anyways he was hooked up onto one of those big Bluefins late today and I heard Gunny tell him his boots were on back wards. I thought it was just a joke but sure enough, his darn boots were on the wrong feet. He said he was wondering why his feet hurt so much. I never seen that before. He ended up catching 2 of those tonight.
The last couple days have been choppy out here but today it was very nice. We get in tomorrow and leave again for 4. See you then.
