May 28, 2023 tybee Fishing Report
Good evening everyone,
Today we did some inshore fishing. Conditions were not favorable, not a lot of current left the fish very unwilling. However were able to scratch together a day of nice rockfish, Sheepshead, and a variety of other fish. Including the inshore trifectra: Yellowtail, Halibut, and White Seabass!
A nice day to get out of the weather!
We are headed back down to try for big bluefin tomorrow!
Wish us luck,

Well today went as expected. We woke up on the anchor after a lovely nights sleep and shortly after daylight we started scratching tuna. It didn't take long to meet our quota. Some already had it and were dropper looping for yellows and getting a few. Anyways a little after 7 we pulled anchor and trolled around for wahoo. One more than half the boat caught a wahoo by lunch time and we took off for Alijos Rocks. We traveled the rest of the day while we looked for something floating with dorado under it but we never found anything as expected.
So like I said, we'll be at the stones in the morning. We're going to try for some more wahoo before starting north to finish off our trip. You never really can have enough wahoo. There is 2 or 3 passengers left on board who have not caught a wahoo so we're going to make sure they get one before anyone else tomorrow. We call it the troll of shame and Glenn, if you're reading at home, I always think of you when we do this.

Mike Pritchard called in with this update for the Tribute. "The great fishing we had this morning, did continue on. We've had very good fishing. We've caught limits of Yellowtail, limits of Yellowfin tuna and we had a nice Dorado lunch. The weather has been nice, but there is a light breeze. The Yellowfin really loved the surface lures.
"We'll be back out tomorrow night on another 1.5 Day trip. See you on the water."

Marlin In the Mix!
Today we worked our way up and had a few hours to fish for some Yellow Tail. We did connect with some beautiful 18-22lbers, also mixed in were nursery sized 4-8 pounders that were released. A great pit stop for some quality fish! Pictured is an airborne Striped Marlin we hooked yesterday mixed in with the Tuna. Amazing how much life was around!
Will report again tomorrow,

Skipper JJ Gerritsen returned with his Apollo to Fisherman's Landing November 21, after an eight-day, ultra-limited trip. The boat's ten passengers fished Guadalupe Island before taking off for Magdalena Bay to fish big tuna on their final day.
"All of our long range trips are ultra-limited," said JJ. "It takes away competition factors, we won't do more than ten passengers. We got limits of yellowfin, Guadalupe's been great our last six trips, but we did something different this time; we headed out for a shot at these big ones. All of our fish are kept in refrigerated saltwater, so they still look great."
Matt Bowland of Encinitas took home the best tuna; a 224-pound yellowfin that fought "long and hard."
Matt used a 6/0 Owner ringed Super Mutu hook, on an 80-pound P-Line topshot, 100-pound Spectra, a Tiagra 30 reel and a Calstar Grafighter 765 H rod. "I butt-hooked the sardine," said Matt. "The fight lasted two and a half hours."
Drew Card of San Diego was second with a 196-pound tuna, and Craig Biddick of Rancho Santa Fe was third for a 164-pounder.
