    I know Craig, spoiled rotten now. They went with 23+ last night, so blamed me for the double up. LOL
    They already had 15-20+ yellows and couple dodo's at 8:30am this morning. Game on now! LOL

    (Now about limits at 114 at 4:30, nice load of yellows)

    Yeah everyone going home with full coolers always a good haul! LOL
    Her and her dad, Arizona Ranchers put the wood to those yellows with
    Rent Rods, and her shoes probably the last thing on her mind having fun. LOL
    She did GREAT! She sadly had to start high school again today-Thursday.

    YEP all bigger grade Yellowtail. Jackpot fish on both trips on Condor
    went around 31lbs. I see some threads about fish counts. We had
    LIMITS of Yellowtail both trips, and some Yellowfin and Dorado.
    Many smaller dorado and yellowtail thrown back on Condor. MANY
    paddies had dorado and tuna blasting around just below the boat,
    but these brute yellows would run them off the baits. Kevin and I
    dropped down to 20lb rigs, trying to get the school yellowfin to bite,
    and we both got ROCKED, catching our biggest yellowtails on 20#.
    We ran down big porpoise schools with tuna under them July 18th
    and only got 4 YF, this time no bitters although we chased 1/2 hour.
    THAT"S FISHING.....all it is! LOL
