Sounds like a typical 3/4 day trip
Glad you guys killed them
Well, how did you do?
One of those days.. you’re due to get them next time.
The crew did spot some bluefin splashing around but I doubt they will bite 60lb. I’d leave the abet 3 speed at home, but it might not be a bad...
I was on the liberty yesterday. Live bait was by far the best way to get a bite. I know they recommend 20-25 but my buddy bagged a limit fishing...
Anyone fishing tuna on Tuesday 6/25 need a HO? Got gear, licenses, and $$ for bait/gas/ice. Text Josh @7608052496

Stinger in olive oil and white....if you can find one
I feel you man. Can’t stand the clowns that can’t control a 4lb fish
Just realized this is from last year
That’s wrong in so many ways if true
I’ve seen too many phenix rod snap into pieces.
UC delmar 1000 and 100j are my go to. Stay away from Phenix
What’s the quota for the seiner fleet for yellowfin?
Nice job on getting the kids to pull on dorado. Tiny is a great captain, he has pulled off some incredible “1/2day” trips
Weird, I’ve seen people rent larger talicas from Seaforth. Maybe they are out for the dates of your trip?
Great for throwing Tady 45 or 7x size jigs on 40lbs. It doesn’t cast smaller jigs very well.
I stand corrected.
Real passionate about this aren’t ya.
Not for mono to fluoro
Sounds like a great trip with your brother and friends.
Growing up in San Diego, fishing an assigned number on a sportboat is so foreign to me....
Congrats on your first yellow. The belle doesn’t get the same amount of hype as other full day boats but Steve knows the island like the back of...
Nice, detailed report
Can you send some pictures to 7608052496
Looking to buy a fathom 12 or saltist 20 in good working condition.

I don’t understand how anyone is ok with there being no quota for commercial YFT take.
Not sure, I didn’t ask. Give them a call
FYI, charkbait in SD has a 20% sale on these rods. Just picked up the 3x for $219
Use a cork puppy
You can’t get FMM with a green card, you will definitely need a passport.

Try it this way.
It’s quick and easy to tie even on a moving boat. Never failed me.
There is nothing wrong with a Trini20 and a Ulua. It’s a beast of a combo and you will have much more crontrol of the fish than those itty bitty...
Rod tips are usually fairly easy to replace, take it to pacific coast bait and tackle in Oceanside, they will take care of you.
I agree with McRae think of others and be courteous. 4-5 set ups will do for this type of trip. You don’t need 7. Nobody likes that guy who takes...
I feel like we are arguing a moot point, but wth.
I get how Mexican limits work and here is my point:
DFW allowed each angler to take their trip...
I respectfully disagree. Each angler was allow to take their trip limit of fish home, and they just simply reported what was left over
“Wildlife officers allowed each passenger to leave with possession of their three daily bag limits worth of fish, then seized the rest.
Came across this on my social media feed. Anyone got more info on this? Video was posted 4 months ago.
I would recommend fathom 25n or the Tesoro 12 depending on your budget.

No, the San Diego and the Liberty both fished offshore that day. Only saw one PB all day.
Same here. The day felt longer since we were on the fish all day.
I have a GG690. It’s light and throws a small jig well. My favorite for smaller jigs is a old school 100j

Those of you that switched from mono to braid. Have you notice any advantages braid has over mono? Does it make the jig swim better? Better...
Thanks for replying Jamie,
Been debating if I should get a tranx to pair up with the new rod I got today to change things up a bit.
I’ve always fished surface iron with 40lb mono, but I can’t help but wonder if thinner diameter, no stretch spectra will help a surface iron swim...
FG all the way. It’s much stronger than the RP knot in my experience and doesn’t really take that much more time to tie. Just practice practice...

I tested all my fluoro after reading this thread. Sure enough, a spool of 20lb seaguar I got this year from turners at the FredHall show is bad.
Yeah buddy! Nice opah!
I bet you'll get better distance if you put that Cortez 12 on dedicated jig rod like a 690j.
If you honestly think the fish was handled properly and there were no violation to the DFW regulations then why did you take the picture down?
Looks like bluefin to me.
Fresh Izorline first string is the way to go.
I'd go with 80lb spectra on the fathom 40n and 100yard of 40/50 lb mono.

You need a reel with enough torque to wind the fish pass all the seals. Newells just don't match up to the more modern reels..imho.
First yellow on the jig! Awesome!
Another vote for 700XH, 700H is just too light for 50lb imo
Thanks for the heads up guys. I'll check out those places if I can't find one used.
Amazing! Thanks for the report.

Sorry you had a bad trip, but did you ever wonder why only a few people were catching all the fish?
Im pretty sure there isn't a size limit on those.

Stick with the solid braid. You don't need to use fluoro for surface iron or yoyo, save it for fly lining live bait.

2 weeks from now I'll be waiting on the beach to catch some bft!!
Public piers=no license
Under 16=no license
I'll take the teramar if you still got it.
They did CPR it(catch picture and released)
Btw there is nothing on DFG site about prohibiting taking BSB out of water.( that I could find anyways)
That fish in the last pic already has grill marks on it..
12LB reds? Sounds like a damn good time on the water!!
Yeah I was disappointed..
And when I called the Murrieta store the lady told me they're gonna get fishing tackle after the remodel.. Weird
Called the Oceanside store a few days ago. They don't have any fishing gear.
Not easy selling stuff at retail price but good luck though.
Btw did you buy it or did you get it as a gift?
Just called and made a reservation. Hope we can get out tonight.
I think I might be able to go.
I gave you a call Dey the landing was closed when I got home.

nice first post.
Don't mean to hijack this but where can I get these "Ed jigs"
Sounds like you had a fun trip. Have any pix?
Here are a few posts about fishing the slide.
I'm probably wrong but isn't the record for opah 162lb.
no price tag, it must be free.
I was in the same situation you're in. My advise is forget about trying to fish and spend time with your girl, save your Money for tuna trips.
Wow! Grats on the fish and thanks for the info.
just checked Chubasco2's counts. Looks like they got 2 Bluefins today.
Anyone has any details on that trip?
I'm looking for a used Graftech (15-40) to go with a Daiwa Saltist 40.
