    Got some 10-22

    Wanna start by saying thank you to the crew and captain of the Tribute who fished a patty with many of us and then offered free bait when they decided to leave. The captain even got on the blower and told the deckys to chum as much as they could while they were leaving to keep the bite going for...

    Sat...tough day..

    http://976tuna.com/audios/71149 Chips report from the Thunderbird says it all... To say it was a parking lot doesn't describe it. Watching the Yellowfin pop over the last two weeks, I finally made my yearly pilgrimage from Ventura County to San Diego figuring the odds were in my favor with the...

    Short video from solo trip this weekend

    Love doing this once a year on my own....wife says I'm crazy, but there's nothing like literally doing everything yourself. Don't get me wrong, a bunk and a hot meal on a sporty is great, but when you've been fishing tuna for 30 years, you want to put that all together sometimes and just test...

Ended up in MB with a plan to hit the 371 and 425 area in my little 18 footer, all by my lonesome. So I did just that, and like some...

    Bonita at the upper 4 rigs off Santa Barbara

    Decided to do an easy run today out of SB after striking out on the YFT off the islands lately..... Huge schools of Bonita and easy to land on the iron off of any of the rigs past the 4 mile....also saw a yellowtail landed. Heading back in, I saw the famous Capt. Dave Bacon on top of the 4...

    8/7 Dana....3rd Times a Charrm

    After 2 fishless trips out of Dana in the past 6 weeks, it finally happened. 10 miles out, find the right paddy, and bingo, nice bull dodo and 3 YFT. Left them biting and handed it off to some guys who were close by. Considering these are trips that start in Ventura County, the long drive...

    7/14 Domes

    I really suck at fishing.......lots of fish caught today, and I had my chance. 20 minute fight with a beast and he spits the hook...wtf??? I'm done with circle hooks! My buddy got a 50 pounder, saw an 80 pounder at the dock at Dana, and witnessed the end of the 2 1/2 hour fight of what the...

    I've always wanted to do it, and I finally did. After owning 9 ocean boats up to 38 feet over the past 24 years, this was by far my most satisfying tuna trip!

    North or South: Best YFT Chances??

    Ok.....I'm the last person that needs others to do my homework, but the O.C. - San Diego boys have been putting in some work on the epic 2014 bite, and I could use some help. I'm coming down from Ventura to fish Tues, and staying in San Clemente with some friends. I've been reading this board...

    Morro Bay.....whatdayathink??

    Hmmm.......it looks like San Diego may be in the last gasps phase for the albacore season.......but I suppose that could change.....maybe. And then there's Morro Bay; or at least there was a few years ago when you could almost count on a fall bite up there after the fat lady had sung down...
