    Was the rsw working on the boat? A buddy of mine fished on the belle on Monday, and mentioned they had put multiple bags of ice in the hold. $10 to filet a 15lb tuna seems high considering the end product (loins soaking it blood/salt water) Better off taking your fish to 5-star

    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 better.

    The San Diego 10/9

    I used 40lb with stupid tight drag but still couldn't stop a couple fish that rocked me. I used bird shut color jigs but I don't think it mattered, but I did notice heavier jig got bit better. I used 6 oz torpedo sinker.

    The San Diego 10/9

    Quick report here My buddy Omar and I fished The San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing on 10/9. We started at north island and scratched out 7 yellows on yo-yo iron. Then we moved to SRK and rockpile but didn't find any life. Booger ran back to north island for one last shot at the yellows...

    Some boat will try to nickel and dime the shit out of you. $7 to filet a 15lb tuna and extra $2 if you want to keep the collar. Fuck that, I'll cut it myself.
