We rolled at 9 with Capt Rob, 2nd Mike, Tad and Matt on Deck and Scotty cooking awesome food in the galley all trip. With only 15 all veteran winders on the big 90ft bird, this was going to be fun. After a load of nice 4-6" dines, we tied up at the receivers for good sleep, before heading out to around the 182, arriving around 5am in the dark. I counted 15+ stern lights and most of the fleet was there with us. We tried bait. I tried a glow white/chartreuse Flat Fall, Tady 4/O and TLD blue/chrome/glowback all for nada in the dark. We fired up about 6am and started 3 man trolling rotations. I tried the cedar plug all day, and we never had a jig strike with anything so enough of that. TACKLE=bottom line, WHAT got bit=20lb line/20lb Flouro leader and a #2 hook-period. A couple fish were caught on 30lb when we had jumpers just off the stern in a 7-11 1 stop plunker. I started with a 1/0 flyliner and got nothing for an hour, until going to smaller #2. Then got 3 yellowfin in a row, butt hooking dines, including my 28lb JP (to crew)! Some guys brought nothing but 25lb up rigs, and got none, until Capt Rob and cook/dh Scottie hooked and handed them one on 20lb to catch. Nice gesture, and everyone went home with some of the 31 nice fish. These were nicer grade Yellowfin 15-28lbs, fat and great eating grade! Ron from Arizona on his 1 trip a year got 6, totally on fire. This by no means was a wide open day, but yo-man's work on 20lb was really fun! We fired up, trolled and from noon to 7 into the dark stopped on a ton of meter marks=big schools, jumpers, diving birds, and few would bite. There's a LOT of forage and these fish are feeding, moving fast. Lot of run and gun, lot of hit and miss..BUT that's the thrill of the hunt. Soon it was time for a hot shower and a killer Lasagne dinner to die for and hit the rack for a nice down swell ride back to San Diego. Toast! THANKS to Rob and the whole crew and everyone I fished with. FUN TIME!
