    Offshore Mid week report

    Outer channel islands holding som nice slug yellowtail! And as we were going from one to another, we ended up chasing 100 lb. bluefin for hours before giving up and going for more yellowtail. Water at island was 63.5 and mid islands it was 70 where the tuna were! And pretty blue, I could see...

    Different island, same results! Big yellows out there!

    Well, it's a little quiet in tuna town, but there's some slug yellowtail to be had. Spent a couple days at one of our islands this last weekend and we didn't see a fish under 30 lbs. Now is the time to get some if you like the big Jack's! And on a side note, Saturday we had the big boys blow...

    Tuna are overrated!

    Don't get me wrong, because I love shooting them, buuuuttt, Man this wahoo is tasty! They are THICK out there right now with over 100 fish seen over two days diving. Ended up with eight up to 61 lbs. So good right now. And water is 77-78 degrees, blue and 50+ vis!!

    Channel Islands 9-24

    Jammed out to Capa with a buddy and found nice 68-69 degree water and NO swell. Vis was good and we dove hard at 5 or 6 different spots por nada! didn't even see a fish. Ran outside of Cruz 5-8 miles and up the coast hoping to see some of the tuna that had been reported recently but just a whole...

    Island Bluefin

    Did a overnight trip Saturday and Sunday and man was it fun. Water was a lil cool at 60 degrees but nice and blue. The yellows ran from 10 to 31 lbs. and we took 20 amongst 7 guys, and I shot 7, including a 30 and the 31. Heard a ton of croaking, so I grabbed my 3 band 60 inch gun and headed...

    My d-ck is bigger than yours!

    So, I am sitting in La Cruz Huanacaxtle, just north of Puerto Vallarta and taking a break from shooting yellowfin and snapper day after day. Air temps have been 85-90 EVERY day and water is blue and 77-78 degrees at THE spot. Looking down the list of threads it's pretty evident in the big...

    Same spot as the previous post of mine. Didn't see any tuna today, but there were some quality yellow's around! Dove a spot at Nic today and was a lil disappointed. Only took one fish there ( maybe 20 lbs. ) as the water was really hazy and the current was pretty non existent. The Freedom set up...

    Island Tuna-and I dont mean Coranados!

    First of all I will not name the specific Island but here is my report. Man, what a day. Got a late start yesterday, as I had just picked up my new trailer for the Conquest, and had to deal with that first. Left CIH around 11 and was in the water by 1. Remember now, this is DIVING. Water on the...

    Channel Islands Slam!

    Even though I am a freediver and spearfisherman I do have a few buddies that toss the Iron, so this is for them. (and for the rest of you that like a lil fish porn)! Dove the C.I. and hit it early on the upcoming tide. Water was 65 degrees and pretty blue with vis up to 40 feet. There were a few...
