Hey everyone,

Booked this trip last Wednesday with 2 buddy's hoping for some nice grade Bluefin and some fun on the water.
Woke up to Wind and choppy seas not what i was expecting, but i had a long streak of really nice weather Trips so i cant complain.
Started out the day with a Kelp around 8 AM. was pretty loaded ended up with 1 dorado, and 1 yellow on that stop to get the skunk off.
Found another nice paddy soon after but not as many fish.. found a mack in the bait well and soaked it for a bit and hooked a nice dorado.
No more action till about 3 PM when all of a sudden HOOOK UP!!!
was a nice bluefin bite for 30 mins then they shut off....ended up hooking 4 landing 2..... crazy with 37 people on board.
Hit 1 more patty after that for a small yellow at about 6pm..

I thought we were done but right at dark we spot a really nice patty and still had a lot of bait so we decided to stop and fish it.
I hooked up on a yellow and it b-lined for the kelp...after about 1 minute i got him loose or so i thought.
all of a sudden i see a mako charging my yellowtail with its tail missing and was able to get it in the boat before it got any meat.
Didnt get that last stop on video but i will post a pic of the yellow with a bite mark.

The boat ended up with 22 bluefin, 31 yellowtail, 18 dorado for 37 Tanglers.
I landed 2 Bluefin,3 yellowtail, 2 dorado.... Worked hard but it paid off with a freezer full of fish

hope this report helps........Check out the video if you have some time to kill :)

That video should be a tutorial on the benefits of knowing how to cast a live bait. Folks all around you not hooked up and what was your longest soak? From this video alone, I know the first trip I'm on I'll be practicing every chance I get.

Your video was a lot of fun to watch but now my son thinks it is normal to get hooked up every cast in less than 30 seconds! Nice fishing bro!
