25 fish
22 over 100#
2 cows - both 207# - both caught by guys named Justin. What are the odds...
Very good opportunity @ a fish of a lifetime- it's up to you to bring appropriate gear to make it a reality. 80-100# a must.
It was a true pleasure meeting these anglers - now go get a nap before the sushi parties commence

Looks like you guys had an AWESOME trip!!

Which good boats out of Sandiego do short trips like this during Nov - Dec? I'm booked on the Independence 11 day which leaves right after Thanksgiving, but my buddy that I will be staying with before and after my trip wants to get out on a weekend trip as he can't get away for longer (he still works, not a lucky retired guy like us).

Thanks, Jim

I think most local boats are done chasing BFT by the end of November/December.

If the BFT are active boats will be doing 1.5 day trips still. I had a great trip on the Pac Queen last year December 12th I believe.

Not sure where the PQ is on their 3-day, but freakin' wow! It's still just May? Today's post from them:

"The Pacific Queen called in with 36 Bluefin so far on their 3 day trip. The fish are (8 @ 50lbs) (24 @ 100-180lbs) and (4 @ 200lbs)."

I was on the Indy for their Thanksgiving trip last Thanksgiving and will be on it again this Thanksgiving. The Royal Polaris was just above us chasing bluefin the the last 2 days of their 8-day trip. They struck out off of Ensenada and moved up the line the next day, to the Cortez, and landed close to 70 in the 2nd week of December. Looking forward to meeting you on the trip!

AA getting them. This is historical fishing

Epic

The PQ has a high land to hook ratio. And this trip there are some bad sticks aboard :Rambo_Throwing_Kniv

I'm confused on the AA counts... or just incredibly amazed. If they are doing same-day reporting, and the count isn't additive (since today's is lower than yesterday's) and the boat left Sunday morning, with 12 over 100 that day along with a cow... then they now have a minimum 76 fish over 100 lbs and at least 1 cow on this 3-day! And they aren't due in till tomorrow at 6 a.m.
Holy Bluefin, Batman!

Absolutely awesome guidance / reporting / advice you guys are willingly dishing out!! No way I could get this kind of info over here on the Florida coast, even tho I'm a FL native, fished all my life, know alot of people that frequently fish, fish all the time myself, etc etc.

You guys are awesome!

My anticipation and enthusiasm level for these fishing trips is going sky high!

Thanks, (really), Jim
