We had great weather the entire trip. This was the annual Bill Casper/Seeker rod/Soft Steel trip skippered by John Grabowski..

Day one we picked away and got 40 bluefin 25# to 40#,


Day two great wide open YT bite at Cedros with as good as it gets on the surface iron...excellent grade of fish from 20# to 38# caught over 270 that day.

Spent three days at the Rocks and had a steady pick bite on high grade YFT from 40# to the JP fish of 140# for all three days....we had three fish over 100#

One of of the nights we had a wide open dropper loop YT bite over 40 were caught all over 25# biggest was 42#....

9 wahoo were hooked on bombs and jigs but none were landed.


Total count:

Bluefin 40

Yellowtail 341

Yellowfin 127

Dorado 6

Pargo 2

Marlin 3 hooked and released


A super trip with a great group of 28 anglers. The trick for the YFT was small hooks, as light line as you dared and flouro carbon leaders.

Thanks for the report. Got any photos??

Any trip with "The Man" at the helm would be a memorable one.
Not only is he the best in the business, but he loves to fish and his enthusiasm and great attitude are contageous. :notworthy

Your chances of success with John Grabowski running the boat are as good as they gets. Sounds like he certainly put you onto a nice mix of fish.

Congrats!!

precision fish said:
1850 + tip ,fuel surcharge, mex permits and jackpot
total 2500
8 days and it was only 1850 plus extras? Aren't most 5 day trips around 1500? Sounds like a pretty good deal. Nice fish, thanks for the report.
