My buddy Mike has never been offshore and wanted to get into some tuna so about 3 weeks ago, we booked a trip on the Pacific Star. The 2.5 was only $395 so we said we'd give it a try. Since I'd never been on this boat before, I was a bit leery with the previous posts on the boat. We left from the LA area around 445pm and got to the landing at 7:30pm and were the last to sign in. We waited for the boat to return from its previous trip and were stoked to see that the anglers had plenty of fish. Boarded the boat with 26 other anglers and was introduced to Tyler and Ray Ray, captain and second ticket, Jason and Jeff, the deckhands, and Tommy and Keith, the cooks. Apparently Tommy has some culinary experience and we were told to expect treats from the kitchen. Plan was to fish away from the fleet so we went south 120 miles or so. Left at 9pm and started fishing a few paddies around 7:30am the first day. Slow pickings so we continued to our destination. Caught a few troll dorado and picked away at paddy fish all day. My buddy Mike caught his first yellowtail as well as his first bluefin (which won day one jackpot.) Tyler made the decision to move back up towards the pens for day two and we started around 5:30am on those fish. First fish came on board around 7:00am and it was a nice one probably around 30 lbs. Around 8am, the plunker started and we drifted for about 3 hours picking away at some nicer bluefin. I caught 3 with the largest around 40 lbs. The jackpot on day two was a solid 50 lb bluefin that one of the Russians caught. We ended up leaving after another drift and found one large paddy around 3pm that pretty much wrapped it up for us. I ended up with a 40, 38, and 33lb bluefin, 2 25lb yellowtail, 5 more yellowtail ranging from 3-15lbs, and 3 dorado from 8-15 lbs. I don't know what the boat tally was but I'm sure it'll be on the Seaforth site. Pros: Left on time, plenty of bunk space, EXCELLENT meals and snacks, captain and crew were friendly and helpful, always worked to untangle folks, and got the fish on the boat. Cons: This one's not really a con but meals obviously weren't included in the price, bait got crappy on day 2, and there was that guy....the one with the spectra and super nice setups that couldn't fish to save his life and tangled the shit out of everyone...oh well. I'd definitely recommend this boat with this crew. Kudos to everyone for fishing hard. Thanks for the fun Keith, Mike, Mike, Brian, Jay (Milkbaby), Steven, and everyone else. Hope to fish with you guys again soon!
