    Just got in - great boat, captain & crew. I don't have the final fish count but we we got plenty of smaller grade paddy yellows, a couple small grade (30 lb?) BFT and a good showing on the YFT.

    Thanks for the report. Did they fish south? And what size on YFT?

    Yeah south down around the double 220 - fish were 12 to perhaps 20+ lbs. There's a lot of small groups of fish busting up balls of small bait. It was cool to see them exploding on the poppers. Good news is the YFT would readily eat trolled lures of all types.

    There were some bigger yellowfin in the mix, one of mine went 25# after gill and gut. Surface iron fish too, casting in front of the speedbait on a foamer, doesn't get better than that.

    Great fishing with you, Steve, and thanks for sharing all those Baja photos while we were at the bait receiver, those really got me excited to go back.
