    Yesterday I took a Chance and went On The Clemente the 3/4 Boat out of
    Dana Wharf , with only 25 Reservation, I was Praying that we
    would go Looking off Shore, for some Tuna, and as we were Heading to The Bait
    Barge the Capitan went over the Game plan that we would go and Check out
    a good area of water Offshore for some Tuna, Thank you God
    I didn't want too just Fish for Small Calico, all Day
    so after the Safety Speech, we headed out of Harbor then
    two Hands went around and help who wanted it
    as the Sun was coming up it Started to look more Fishy
    the farther we went out, we Stopped on a Couple patties'
    with no luck , but when we got out too around 14 Mile's out
    we had Braking off our Bow, and we slid in on them
    and they were Boiling all over, but they were Real picky too bite
    anything with a hook in it, then one of the Crew started Chunking
    and a little while later one Guy got bite on a old Spinning and Reel
    and Fought it for over a Half Hour with good Coaching from the crew
    that fish came close enough to put a Gaff in it, a 30 Y F T ,now that we Got the Skunk off
    we kept at it and would pull up on more jumper and their was more Show then Go
    then on one Stop I was at the rite play at the rite time and had one Boil right of the
    Port corner, and I put Sardine rite on its nose for a instant hook up
    boy that felt so good, and after a little Battle up to the Bow
    the Deck hand Made a nice Head shot on it
    so I got on the Board with a 17 L.B YFT , then some one flip
    the switch, and it was all over except one Kelp we Stopped on and some
    Micro YT on it, I thru a Colt Sniper the whole Stop Trying, too see
    if their was anything a lot bigger around, it got bumped a couple time's
    that was it, all in all a Great trip, a hard working Captain and Crew
    they really were Dialed in, compared to the normal 3/4 day Trips I been on
    Final Total 9 Y F T
    and 20 Micro Y T
    what worked was 20 LB. Seaguar Flouro, and a # 2 Ringed Owner Hook
    and a good lively Sardine P.S I'm not as Good as Cory with this Report
    and will never Be,LOL

    Way to go Gerry, glad you got one.
    Report was fine, I had no problem with it. The size is fine and a pic would have been too.... It would beat the shit out of mine, watching it swimming away with my iron in it's mouth and my gaff in it's side.

    As for the grammar police, if you want to impress me tell me how to figure the hypotenuse of a right triangle. Grammar? That's what secretaries are for.

    The hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the square root of the sum of the square of the two sides just like the scarecrow said in the Wizard of Oz

    Glad to hear your cap'n decided to roll the dice. A few of us went out of Dana Wharf on a 3/4 on the SS I Won't Name a few weeks ago. We came ready and geared up to hunt YT/YFT. To our surprise and consternation when we get there, dudes are holding inshore spinning gear. :shake: "Ughhhhhhh..." Short calicos all day long anyone?
